I WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU(What are the guarantees that the Lord will do so)
Joshua 1:1-9 (the Lord’s words to Joshua)Pastor Rodel Catuy
I.
Our Lord’s continuous provision (vv. 1-2a)
A.
He will raise a leader for us (v. 1)
B.
He will renew our sense of purpose (v. 2a) - ‘… dead.’ Vs. NOW ‘Arise…’
‘after the death of Moses…’ >
effectively links Pentateuch
Joshua
‘The death of Joshua…’ 
> links to Judges (Josh. 24:29
Judges 1:1; 2:8)What does this means?These notices link the books together ina
continuous
chain and suggest
the
 
continuityof the Lord’s dealing with his people Israel through key leaders 
.Example: The book of Kings
The first section (vv. 1–9 ) contains the Lord’s words to Joshua
, charging him toassume the leadership position opened up by Moses’ death.Moreover, just as Moses is called the
servant of the Lord
Joshua
will receive the same title of honor at the end of his life (Josh.24:29;Judg. 2:8). Joshua was among the 12 men sent to explore the land of Canaan ( Num.13:8).
He alone joined Caleb in exhorting the people to trust God for victory(Num. 14:6–9 )—an act of faith for which only he and Caleb, among their generation, were allowed to enter the Promised Land
. More than a mere assistant,Joshua was prepared by these and other experiences to become Moses’ successor. Near the time of his death,when Moses requested that a successor be appointed, theLord instructed him to commission Joshua the son of Nun, “a man in whom is theSpirit,” before “all the congregation” ( Num. 27:18–19).Joshua was to be the one to
 
lead Israel into the Promised Land (Deut. 1:38; 3:28; 31:23 )and to apportion it among the tribes ( Num. 34:17).As the book of Joshua opens, Moses has died and the time has finally come for Joshua—“full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laidhis hands on him” (Deut. 34:9 )—to take the lead.
II.
Our Lord’s challenging promises (vv. 2b – 5a)
A.
Our inheritance [patriarchal promise] (vv. 2b-4)
‘into the land that I am giving to them”(v. 2)
a.Progeny b.Blessingc.LandOur responsibility (as the Lord sovereignly gives the land):
“… NOW therefore “Arise!” go over this Jordan…” (v. 2b)
 NOW= No Opportunity Wasted (therefore…)Arise!In the last days…
Ro 13:11
And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you
to
wake up
from your slumber 
, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.Illustration: Elijah House - Slumbering SpiritGo over this Jordan!... (remember Josh 3 for 3
rd
point here)Go over this Jordan
vv. 3-4 >
 
Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given toyou
. The fact that the Lord is sovereignly giving Israel the landdoes not negate
their 
 
responsibility to step out in faith and take what is given
(cf.vv. 9, 18).Result/Promise if we do…
 
B.
Our victory (v. 5a) -
no man shall be able to stand before you all the days of  your life.’ “Ang bumangga, giba!”
Why ‘no man shall be able to stand against us’?...
III.
Our Lord’s constant presence (vv. 5b-9)
 
 Just as I was with Moses, so
 I will be with you
.
 I will not leave you or forsake you
. (v. 5b)“ … for 
the Lord your God is with you
wherever you go. (v. 9b)
Cf. >
Rom. 8:31
‘If God is for us, who can be against us’?What is the guarantee that the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us?It’s simple. He’ll be with us…Past > ‘just as I was with Moses’ (v. 5b)Present > ‘with you wherever you go’ (v. 9b)Future > ‘I am with you always, to the end of the age.’ (Matt. 28:20b)Illustration:1.New Edition (1986) – With You All the Way“Cause I’m with you all the wayI’ll never give up this dream, although it may seemThere’s no way out today!“Cause I’m with you all the way
