|The Conquest of the Amorites|
James Tissot 1902
Judges 2: 1-5
Judges 2: 1,4,5 (KJ) And an angel of the Lord came up from Gilgal to Bochim, and said, I made you to go up out of Egypt, and have brought you unto the land which I sware unto your fathers; and I said, I will never break my covenant with you... And it came to pass, when the angel of the Lord spake these words unto all the children of Israel, that the people lifted up their voice, and wept...And they called the name of that place Bo'-chim; and they sacrificed there unto the Lord.
This reading is how Joshua and the Lord our God went before him and fought for him into victory gaining the land which was promised to his forefathers. On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, Joshua spoke to the Lord in the presence of Israel;
Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and moon, over the valley of Aijalon.: And the sun stood still and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on its enemies. isn't this written in the book of Jashar? So the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed its setting almost a full day.
14. THERE HAS BEEN NO DAY LIKE IT BEFORE OR SINCE, WHEN THE LORD LISTENED TO THE VOICE OF A MAN, BECAUSE THE LORD FOUGHT FOR ISRAEL.
Jeremiah 32:17 "Ah, Lord God! You Yourself made the heavens and earth by Your great power and with Your outstretched arm, Nothing is too difficult for You!"
It must have been a very tiring war but in the end to see the hand of God on all things and walking under the shadow of the Almighty must have been a awesome time for the Israelites. Today we have the same privilege and it's there all we need to do is ask and it shall be given unto you pressed down to over flowing.
Have a blessed day and know for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go, He shall not forsake you. Amen!
