God did not create sickness and disease; it never came from God. It originated from Satan after man fell into sin. There is no sickness and disease in heaven, it is a curse. The Father’s love provides healing and health for His children. The Father’s unfailing love will never use sickness to afflict humanity. The purpose of sickness and disease is to bring about death, and death is an enemy of God. This earth is under the curse of the devil. Therefore, it is important to know the five things we need to do to live in divine health.Eat Properly and Rest Your BodyIf not careful, people can get into the extremes of health food. They get paranoid with little things about food. They fear all kinds of genes that may cause cancer. They have more knowledge about the harm of chemicals and food than the knowledge of God and His divine healing power. They have little faith in the divine power of God to keep them in divine health. They also fear death, but if only they would have a revelation of heaven and the knowledge they would be going to a better place, then that would alleviate their fear and they would be eating by faith, believing God will sanctify their food. However, we should eat everything in moderation. Philippians 4:5 (KJV) Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.The English dictionary gives the meaning for moderation as the avoidance of excess or extreme. When we follow our spirit (heart), the Holy Spirit will lead us in moderation concerning eating anything. We really have to believe and trust God to sanctify our food because of the chemicals that go into the process of making the food these days. Physical Exercise Does Benefit1 Timothy 4:8 (NKJV) For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.Paul said bodily exercise does profit or benefit you. But compared to godliness, godliness will bring you more profit or benefit. Paul did not say bodily exercise does not profit or benefit you at all. We do exercise our bodies but we do not neglect godliness and we do not put bodily exercise above godliness because godliness is more profitable. More importantly, we should not go to the extreme and be obsessed with physical exercise and with the kind of food we eat.Incline Your Ear to God’s WordProverbs 4:20–22 (KJV)20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.22 For they are life [Medicine] unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.God’s Word is very important for us to live in divine health. How do we approach God’s Word and what should our attitude be? The above Scriptures tell us how.Attend to His Word means to pay attention, listen attentively, be alert to His Word.Incline our ears to His saying means to bend down, stretch out, and it also means to submit. Our spirit is to bend down, stretch out, to hear what God is saying. We hear with the attitude of submitting to what we hear. We are not just casually hearing but making an effort with our soul to hear. This is the approach we take towards what God is saying. Let them not depart from our eyes means we should be reading the Word regularly so as to keep them in our eyes. Keep them in the midst of our heart means the mind. When we keep them in front of our eyes, we keep them in our mind. We keep the Word of God regularly in our minds to renew them. When your mind is full of the Word, there is no room for the devil to put other thoughts. The Word of God is very important because it is life and medicine to those who find them. Life means nourishment and the Word of God is nourishment to our bodies. When you are healthy, the Word is nourishment to your flesh. If someone is sick, the Word is medicine to his or her body; hence the Word of God is healing and health to our bodies. The word find means to discover, to determine the existence. Pastors discover the truth of God’s Word, determine the existence of spiritual truths and then as a churchgoer, you come to church to receive them. Pastors discover truths for you and determine what God’s Word is saying concerning what belongs to you. You may also discover them for yourself when you read the Bible daily. It takes time and resources to discover and uncover things in the Bible. The assets in the Bible are worth uncovering. So it is worth investing time to come to church and attend corporate prayer and small group meetings.Rev.

The purpose of sickness and disease is to bring about death, and death is an enemy of God. This earth is under the curse of the devil. Therefore, it is important to know the five things we need to do to live in divine health.

Eat Properly and Rest Your Body

If not careful, people can get into the extremes of health food. They get paranoid with little things about food. They fear all kinds of genes that may cause cancer. They have more knowledge about the harm of chemicals and food than the knowledge of God and His divine healing power. They have little faith in the divine power of God to keep them in divine health. 

They also fear death, but if only they would have a revelation of heaven and the knowledge they would be going to a better place, then that would alleviate their fear and they would be eating by faith, believing God will sanctify their food. However, we should eat everything in moderation. 

Philippians 4:5 (KJV) 
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

The English dictionary gives the meaning for moderation as the avoidance of excess or extreme. When we follow our spirit (heart), the Holy Spirit will lead us in moderation concerning eating anything. We really have to believe and trust God to sanctify our food because of the chemicals that go into the process of making the food these days.

 Physical Exercise Does Benefit

1 Timothy 4:8 (NKJV) 
For bodily exercise profits a little, but godliness is profitable for all things, having promise of the life that now is and of that which is to come.

Paul said bodily exercise does profit or benefit you. But compared to godliness, godliness will bring you more profit or benefit. Paul did not say bodily exercise does not profit or benefit you at all. We do exercise our bodies but we do not neglect godliness and we do not put bodily exercise above godliness because godliness is more profitable. More importantly, we should not go to the extreme and be obsessed with physical exercise and with the kind of food we eat.

Incline Your Ear to God’s Word

Proverbs 4:20–22 (KJV)
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life [Medicine] unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

God’s Word is very important for us to live in divine health. How do we approach God’s Word and what should our attitude be? The above Scriptures tell us how.

Attend to His Word means to pay attention, listen attentively, be alert to His Word.

Incline our ears to His saying means to bend down, stretch out, and it also means to submit. Our spirit is to bend down, stretch out, to hear what God is saying. We hear with the attitude of submitting to what we hear. We are not just casually hearing but making an effort with our soul to hear. This is the approach we take towards what God is saying. 

Let them not depart from our eyes means we should be reading the Word regularly so as to keep them in our eyes. 

Keep them in the midst of our heart means the mind. When we keep them in front of our eyes, we keep them in our mind. We keep the Word of God regularly in our minds to renew them. When your mind is full of the Word, there is no room for the devil to put other thoughts. 

The Word of God is very important because it is life and medicine to those who find them. Life means nourishment and the Word of God is nourishment to our bodies. When you are healthy, the Word is nourishment to your flesh. If someone is sick, the Word is medicine to his or her body; hence the Word of God is healing and health to our bodies. 

The word find means to discover, to determine the existence. Pastors discover the truth of God’s Word, determine the existence of spiritual truths and then as a churchgoer, you come to church to receive them. Pastors discover truths for you and determine what God’s Word is saying concerning what belongs to you. You may also discover them for yourself when you read the Bible daily. It takes time and resources to discover and uncover things in the Bible. The assets in the Bible are worth uncovering. So it is worth investing time to come to church and attend corporate prayer and small group meetings.

JEHOVAH-JIREH

Means “The Lord will Provide” an offering, and Christ was the Offering provided for our complete redemption.

God already provided us with Jesus the sacrificial lamb. He was sacrificed as our Passover Lamb. He died physically and spiritually that we may live spiritually and physically.

JEHOVAH-NISSI

Means “The Lord is our Banner,” or “Victor,” or “Captain.” It was when, by the cross, Christ triumphed over principalities and powers that He provided for us, through the redemption, the privilege of saying, “thanks be unto God which giveth us the victory through our Lord, Jesus Christ.”

Jesus was oppressed with the power of Satan (sin, sickness, poverty, death) but He overcame his power. Now that we are in Christ, the power of Satan (sin, sickness, poverty, death) has no dominion over us. Sickness has no dominion over us and the power of the Holy Spirit in us is the power that will help our bodies recover.

JEHOVAH-TSIDKENU

Is translated “The Lord our Righteousness.” He becomes our righteousness by bearing our sins on the cross; therefore our redemptive privilege of receiving “the gift of righteousness” is a redemptive blessing.

We are made righteous and holy in Christ Jesus, and seated with Jesus Christ at the right hand of the Father. The right hand of the Father is a position of authority. Therefore we have authority in Jesus’ Name over every sickness and disease. When we use the Name of Jesus to lay hands on the sick, they will recover.

JEHOVAH-RAPHA

Is translated “I am the Lord thy Physician,” or “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” 

This name is given to reveal to us our redemptive privilege of being healed. This privilege is purchased by His Redemption.

Exodus 15:22-26 (NKJV)
22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red Sea; then they went out into the Wilderness of Shur. And they went three days in the wilderness and found no water. 
23 Now when they came to Marah, they could not drink the waters of Marah, for they were bitter. Therefore the name of it was called Marah.   
24 And the people complained against Moses, saying, What shall we drink? 
25 So he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them, 
26 and said,If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you. 

The very first Covenant God gave after the passing of the Red Sea, which was so distinctively typical of our redemption was the covenant of healing, and it was at His time that God revealed Himself as our Physician, by the first redemptive and covenant name, Jehovah-Rapha.

This is not just a promise, but a statute (written law passed by God, meant to be permanent) and ordinance (act of judgment). Since Jehovah-Rapha is one of His redemptive names, sealing the covenant of healing, Christ during His exaltation, could no more abandon His office of Healer than that revealed by each of His other six redemptive names. 

Has any of the blessings which His redemptive names reveal been withdrawn from this “better” dispensation or covenant that we live in? It has not been withdrawn. Then healing is for us today and He will surely heal and see to it that we receive our healing. For Jehovah-Rapha, “I am the Lord thy Physician”, as His name reveals to us who He is, He will live up to His name and will not fail.

Believe Jehovah-Rapha for all your healing because He is your perfect Physician.

THE SEVEN REDEMPTIVE NAMES OF JEHOVAH Mr. Scofield of the Scofield Bible says that the name “Jehovah is distinctly the redemptive name of deity,” and means “the Self-existent One who reveals Himself.”The seven redemptive names, he says, “point to a continuous and increasing self-revelation.” He then says, “In His redemptive relation to man, Jehovah has seven compound names which reveal Him as meeting every need of man for his lost state to the end.”The blessings that each redemptive name reveals must be provided by the Atonement in the Old Testament and in the redemption by Christ in the New Testament.JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH“The Lord is there”, or present revealing to us the redemptive privilege of enjoying His presence, Who says, “Lo, I am with you always.” That this blessing is provided by the Atonement is proven by the fact that we are “made nigh by the blood of Christ.”If the Heavenly Father is always there with us and for us, how could He not see to it that we receive our healing? JEHOVAH-SHALOMThe Lord our Peace, reveals to us the redemptive privilege of having His Peace. Accordingly Jesus says, “My peace I give unto thee.” This blessing is in the Atonement, because “the chastisement of our peace was upon Him” when He “made peace by the blood of His cross.”We have peace in our spirit and soul and we let that peace govern our mind and emotions when we receive a doctor’s report.Philippians 4:7 (NKJV)7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.We may not fully understand what is going on in our bodies when we receive the doctor’s report but we let the peace guard our mind and emotions. The devil will always take what we hear and see to oppress us. When we have turmoil in our mind and emotions, let us look on the inside of our spirit for two things:Look for that peace that is still in our spirit because of the Holy Spirit of peace who dwells within us. When we let that peace guard our mind and emotions, then it does not matter what the devil tries to put in our mind or try to oppress our mind with, we will still stand in faith to believe that the Father is faithful to see to it that we receive our healing. We will not be shaken and be shifted from our stand of faith to doubt and unbelief. When we cannot be shaken into unbelief, the devil cannot defeat us with sickness and disease. JEHOVAH-RA-AHIs translated “The Lord is my Shepherd.” He became our Shepherd by giving “His life for the sheep,” therefore this privilege is a redemptive privilege purchased by the redemption of Christ.Jesus gave us eternal life and we have the life of the Holy Spirit in our spirit, giving life to our mortal bodies. Where there is death in our bodies, He gives life to reverse the death. Where there is sickness, He gives us health. The Holy Spirit who dwells with our spirit man continuously gives life to our mortal bodies.Romans 8:11 (NIV)11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.Rev.

THE SEVEN REDEMPTIVE NAMES OF JEHOVAH 

Mr. Scofield of the Scofield Bible says that the name “Jehovah is distinctly the redemptive name of deity,” and means “the Self-existent One who reveals Himself.”

The seven redemptive names, he says, “point to a continuous and increasing self-revelation.” He then says, “In His redemptive relation to man, Jehovah has seven compound names which reveal Him as meeting every need of man for his lost state to the end.”

The blessings that each redemptive name reveals must be provided by the Atonement in the Old Testament and in the redemption by Christ in the New Testament.

JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH

“The Lord is there”, or present revealing to us the redemptive privilege of enjoying His presence, Who says, “Lo, I am with you always.” That this blessing is provided by the Atonement is proven by the fact that we are “made nigh by the blood of Christ.”

If the Heavenly Father is always there with us and for us, how could He not see to it that we receive our healing? 

JEHOVAH-SHALOM

The Lord our Peace, reveals to us the redemptive privilege of having His Peace. Accordingly Jesus says, “My peace I give unto  thee.” This blessing is in the Atonement, because “the chastisement of our peace was upon Him” when He “made peace by the blood of His cross.”

We have peace in our spirit and soul and we let that peace govern our mind and emotions when we receive a doctor’s report.

Philippians 4:7 (NKJV)
7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

We may not fully understand what is going on in our bodies when we receive the doctor’s report but we let the peace guard our mind and emotions. 

The devil will always take what we hear and see to oppress us. When we have turmoil in our mind and emotions, let us look on the inside of our spirit for two things:

Look for that peace that is still in our spirit because of the Holy Spirit of peace who  dwells within us. When we let that peace guard our mind and emotions, then it does not  matter what the devil tries to put in our mind or try to oppress our mind with, we will still stand in faith to believe that the Father is faithful to see to it that we receive our healing. We will not be shaken and be shifted from our stand of faith to doubt and unbelief. When we cannot be shaken into unbelief, the devil cannot defeat us with sickness and disease. 

JEHOVAH-RA-AH

Is translated “The Lord is my Shepherd.” He became our Shepherd by giving “His life for the sheep,” therefore this privilege is a redemptive privilege purchased by the redemption of Christ.

Jesus gave us eternal life and we have the life of the Holy Spirit in our spirit, giving life to our mortal bodies. Where there is death in our bodies, He gives life to reverse the death. Where there is sickness, He gives us health. The Holy Spirit who dwells with our spirit man continuously gives life to our mortal bodies.

Romans 8:11 (NIV)
11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.

Malachi 3:8 (NKJV)“Will a man rob God?Yet you have robbed Me!But you say,‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.When the nation of Israel did not pay their tithes nor give their offerings, God said they robbed Him.There are people who steal from others. To steal is to secretly take something that does not belong to them. To rob means to take by force and done openly. God said Israel robbed Him because they did it before His very own eyes.Leviticus 27:30,32 (NIV) 30 “ ‘A tithe of everything from the land, whether grain from the soil or fruit from the trees, belongs to the Lord; it is holy to the Lord. 32 Every tithe of the herd and flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd’s rod—will be holy to the Lord.God said the tithe belongs to Him; it does not belong to others nor to us. Not to give to God what belongs to Him, is tantamount to taking it from God by force. But the Scripture also said that they robbed God of offerings. How do we rob God of His offerings?Genesis 22:8 (NKJV)And Abraham said, “My son, God will provide for Himself the lamb for a burnt offering.” So the two of them went together.God told Abraham to sacrifice his only son and when Isaac asked his father where the lamb was for the sacrifice, Abraham replied by saying, “God will provide for Himself...”This is the Heavenly Father’s nature; He will always provide for Himself. He never takes anything away from us. Every time you give a general offering, it is God who provided for you to give. But when the Lord speaks to you to give a special offering of one or ten million dollars, God has provided for Himself by providing for you. He provided for Himself by blessing and increasing your blessings, so that you could give that million dollars.What if the Lord had been increasing the profits of your business for the last 18 years, and asked you to give a special offering for a special church project? It was He who had provided for Himself for that period of time, to give to the special project, by increasing the blessings in your business. When He asks you for that special offering and if you do not want to give and participate in funding that project, then you will be robbing God of His offerings. It was He who gave to you but instead of giving to the special project, you kept it.This is how believers rob God of His offerings. It is God’s offering because He provided for you to give. He has already provided for Himself by blessing and increasing your wealth. The Heavenly Father has blessed you more than enough for both you and your family’s needs. And He has blessed you abundantly, even beyond your needs so that you could give to that special project.Have the right perspective. Have the right mind set, that is, the Heavenly Father has already provided and will provide for Himself. Bearing this in mind, you will not hold back what He has already put in your hands to give. He provided for Himself by putting it into your hands for safe keeping, until such a time when He requires it.Rev.

32 Every tithe of the herd and flock—every tenth animal that passes under the shepherd’s rod—will be holy to the Lord.

God said the tithe belongs to Him; it does not belong to others nor to us. Not to give to God what belongs to Him, is tantamount to taking it from God by force.

Job 32:8 (NLT) But there is a spirit within people, the breath of the Almighty within them, that makes them intelligent.

You are a spirit and you are the breath of the Almighty! 

This is a quote from Genesis: when God created the first man; He breathed into the nostril the breath of life. The word breath means spirit.

Your spirit man is the breath of the Almighty and it makes your mind intelligent because the spirit (breath) of the Almighty energises your brain to make you intelligent.

The same spirit of the Almighty will energise to give life to every cell in your body. Every good cell is constantly replaced with a new cell.

Believe the spirit of the Almighty will energise every cancer cell to replace it with new good cells. 

John 14:17 (NKJV) the Spirit of truth,… you know Him, for He dwells with you and…in you.

Now the Holy Spirit dwells with you and is in your spirit. He is the Almighty. The power of the Holy Spirit will energise your brain and every cell of your body to make you more intelligent and to replace every cancer cell with healthy good cells.

Romans 8:11 (NKJV) But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.

The power of the Holy Spirit that energises and gives life to our brain and every cell in the body is the same power that raised Jesus from the dead. Can you imagine what power of the Almighty is in your spirit? This is the Father’s unfailing love and His unconditional grace.

The Almighty Spirit, He created our spirit man that lives in our body,  then how can we not succeed and how can we not overcome any challenge in life?

Romans 4:16 (NIV) Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all.Abraham is called the father of us all. The Bible never called Moses the father of us all. The Bible called it the faith of Abraham because after Abraham heard from God, he received and believed the spoken Word, therefore it became the faith of Abraham. From then on Abraham walked by what he heard. Abraham walked by faith because faith comes by hearing the spoken word of Christ (Romans 10:17). Abraham walked by faith because there was not a tabernacle to go to, to worship God. He never had an altar in the tabernacle but whenever the Lord appeared to him, he built the Lord an altar to sacrifice to Him. Abraham never celebrated any feast of the tabernacle, feast of the pentecost, or feast of the trumpet which would constantly remind him to walk by sight, he nonetheless continued to walk in the ways of the Lord. He walked by what he heard from the Lord. Abraham never had the high priest, Levites, or any priest perform the sacrifice or worship the Lord. Instead he offered sacrifices by faith, he became the high priest and the priest to his entire family and servants. His home was the temple and the altar was in his home where he made sacrificial offerings to the Lord. When Abraham walked in the ways of the Lord, he walked by faith and not by sight. Abraham simply walked by faith thus it is called the faith of Abraham, and he is the father of us all. Moses led the nation of Israel and God had him construct the Tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant with Aaron’s rod, the pot of manna, the tablet of stones, the altar of sacrifice and incense to remind them to worship the Lord. God instituted the role of the high priest, priests, and the Levites to serve in the Tabernacle of Moses to perform the sacrifices, to worship the Lord, to teach the people the ways of God and to keep the covenant with Him. On the other hand, Abraham did not need all these to help him keep his eyes on the Lord, or keep His ways, and to help him absolutely obey God, with no compromise. Abraham himself sacrificed his son by faith on Mount Moriah. Abraham became the father of faith for us all. Do you need the feasts of the Old Testament, the types and shadows of the Old Covenant to help you believe in the living God? If you do, you are still walking by sight and not by faith. Do you need to go back into the types and shadows to see Jesus? If you cannot see Jesus in the Gospel and in the Epistles, you will never see Him in your spirit. If you need the feasts and the types and shadows in the Old Covenant to help you see Jesus, then you are walking by sight and not by faith.How did Abraham walk by faith? Abraham never had the tabernacle (like the nation of Israel did), the feasts, the types and shadows, the high priest, the priests, and the Levites. Abraham walked by what the Lord told him since the days of Mesopotamia to Canaan.New Covenant believers are to walk by what we cannot see. The Old Covenant is obsolete and has passed away; including all the feasts, all the types and shadows because we have the antitype now, that is Jesus.Rev.

When all is well, that is, when you are healthy, have more than enough, and everything is going well with your career, family, and life, speak or confess the Truth. Speaking the Truth and confessing the Truth means the same thing. Confess the truth of God’s Word over your life.2 Corinthians 4:13 (NKJV) And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed and therefore I spoke," we also believe and therefore speak …Paul said the man who has faith should speak the Word, speak what you believe. Jesus tells us to speak what we believe. To speak what we believe, we are to think what we believe. Another way of saying what Paul said is, “Confess what you believe.” Confession is a way of expressing our faith. The definition of confession is:Strong’s Concordance definition of “confess” = to acknowledge: by confession, profession, give thanks, promise.Word Study of the New Testament = say the same thing as another.Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament base on Semantic Domains = to acknowledge a fact.Why Confession is ImportantConfession is the key to success. God gave Joshua two keys to prosperity and having good success.Joshua 1:7-8 (NKJV)7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.Firstly, the Word of God should not depart from his MOUTH and he was to MEDITATE on it. To meditate means to murmur or mutter; to say it. God told Joshua to confess the book of the law. To acknowledge the Word of God and to say the same thing as the Word says. Secondly, he was to observe to DO all that was written in the book of the law; the Word of God. Importance of Confession: We may observe to DO everything that is written in the Word of God.

Israel had stayed in Egypt too long and beyond the time of famine. They eventually ended up coming under bondage. The plan of God for them, the descendants of Abraham, was almost thwarted. It was a very serious matter. If they had not returned to the Promised Land (Canaan), God’s plan of redemption would not have been fulfilled. The devil will always try to thwart, disrupt, hijack, completely put a stop to God’s plan.

Why Confession is Important

Confession is the key to success. God gave Joshua two keys to prosperity and having good success.

Joshua 1:7-8 (NKJV)
7 Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. 
8 This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Firstly, the Word of God should not depart from his MOUTH and he was to MEDITATE on it. To meditate means to murmur or mutter; to say it. God told Joshua to confess the book of the law. To acknowledge the Word of God and to say the same thing as the Word says. 

Secondly, he was to observe to DO all that was written in the book of the law; the Word of God. Importance of Confession: We may observe to DO everything that is written in the Word of God. Result of being a doer of the Word of God: YOU will make your way PROSPEROUS and YOU shall have GOOD SUCCESS.

God told Joshua no man would be able stand against him. In other words, no man could stop him from entering or defeating him in the Promised Land. God also promised He would not cause Joshua to fail because just as He was with Moses, He would be with Joshua. God would not forsake him. Joshua’s success was almost guaranteed. He just needed to confess and do the Word himself.
