Family Update

Welcome dear friends.

          This month's study begins in the book of Joshua, Chapter 10. The children of Israel had begun conquering the territories given them by God and were facing challenges from those who were occupying those lands.

In this chapter, they were confronting the five Amorite kings: Adoni-Zedek, Hoham, Piram, Japhia and Debir. These kings had heard of the slaughter at Ai and Jericho, as well as the peace treaty with Gibeon. The Amorites assaulted Gibeon, which caused Gibeon to appeal for aid from Israel. Joshua answered the call by marshaling his troops and traveling all night to Gibeon, where he attacked the Amorites' combined forces.

Although the sons of Israel fought valiantly, God joined in and sent great hail-stones, which killed more of the enemy than Israel's troops.

11: "There were more who died from the hailstones than those whom the children killed with the sword."

Because the battle was fierce and Israel needed more time to complete their conquest, Joshua convened with God, then reached a new level of authority.

12: Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel:
"Sun, stand still over Gibeon;
And Moon, in the Valley of Aijalon."
13: So the sun stood still,
And the moon stopped,
Till the people had revenge
Upon their enemies.
Is this not written in the Book of Jasher? So, the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. 14 And there has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel. 15 Then Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to the camp at Gilgal.

Joshua expected to see his command performed, thus giving vent to Hebrews 11, Mark 11 and Jesus' mustard seed teaching.

I believe Joshua thought of Moses and the Red Sea crossing at this point. I believe the wilderness provisions taught him that God has greater power than man uses.

I want to ask a question at this point. What prompted Joshua to call for this drastic form of intervention? If man could think it possible, what must be our response to I Corinthians 2:9?

Joshua was enveloped in Spiritual power and his thoughts exceeded the highest of man's logic, yet as great a feat as this was -it still was in the realm of man's capabilities. Consider the following Scripture.

1 Corinthians 2:9-11:
"Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."

10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

Greater than Joshua's thoughts, greater than the deepest thinkers ever to tread this earth, is a realm that looks at stopping the sun and moon as a minor deed in comparison to God's outlay for those who love Him.

What battles are you facing? What miracle do you require? If He put heaven and earth on hold in order to rescue Israel, what will He do for you?

(Note: A few weeks back, the world. spotlighted a solar eclipse, which is calculatable, but compared to Joshua's demonstration — it is as nothing.)

Until next month.

Dr. Cosby R. Oliver, PhD.


  1. In response to last month's appeal, a check came in the mail with a note which read,"build that Tabernacle."

  2. Our Guatemala missionaries, Larry and Marla Johnson, desperately need a new truck (Toyota 4WD). Pray for the Lord to supply that vehicle as their old one is so far gone the local mechanic said, "it is beyond repair."
