The Promises of the Lord

  1. The Promises of the Lord are our inheritance
  • The word inheritance is repeated over 50 times between ch. 13-22.
  • The land is a gift of God’s Grace.
  • God is the ultimate owner of the land and He alone has the final say.

2. Do not stay on the borderline, learn to go deep

  • Two and a half tribes requested land beyond the Jordan.
  • They were comfortable with the land as it was easy and good for pasture.
  • The land became a snare for them interns of invasion and influence.

3. The Levite’s received God as their inheritance

  • The special calling made them not receive land but was to live among other tribes
  • They were God’s gift to the other tribes as His representatives.
  • God blessed them with the gifts of the altar.
