“Of the men who went to explore the land, only Joshua son of Nun and Caleb son of Jephunneh survived.” Numbers 14:38
Moses had sent twelve men in to the land of Canaan to spy it out. They were to look it over and map it out so that the Israelites would be ready to take it over when they went in. Ten of those men stated that it was a great land but that they would not be able to conquer it. They discouraged the rest of the Israelites from going in as God wanted them to do.
Two of those men knew that with God’s help they could take over the land. Those two were Caleb and Joshua. God struck the rest of those men with a plague that killed them. Only Caleb and Joshua survived.
Through the Bible God has given each person a vision of what heaven is like and who He is. It shows that He is the ruler over every one and every thing. When you read the end of the book it shows that He will win and whoever is with Him will win.
There are many people who state that they believe in Jesus. Jesus had said that many would say they knew Him, but that He did not know them. When it comes to the end time when Jesus returns, He said He would reject many because they did not obey Him. Knowing Jesus is to love Him. To love Jesus is to obey Him.
The apostle Paul said that you are to run the race as to finish it. Believing that you have already accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you must continue in your walk with Him. Do not be afraid to go forward and conquer the land before you.
That land is the life God has given you. It starts with your own personal life. Be the master over sin and death in your life. Then take back the community of people around you for God. Be His witness and do not allow the enemy, Satan, to gain or keep any one person.
Do not be afraid of what this world can do to you. In the end you will win.
Will you be one of the few who survive? “Many will be called, but few are chosen.”
I pray today that God will give you a vision of the land you are to conquer; that God will give you strength to conquer that land; that God will remove all fear of the enemy; and that you will survive to the end.
