More Prophecy in Joshua

Have I been remiss again?

Yep. I have been posting on daily study of Deuteronomy and now into the Book of Joshua. Today is another day of prophetic symbols not fulfilled until Yeshua. I find it interesting that JOSHUA means YESHUA in Greek, JESUS. So, pretty much all of Joshua has been thoroughly prophetic.

While I post these almost every day, I hope you read the Bible in its entirety. Unless you want to be led down paths of ignorance. And I HAVE BEEN THERE so no judgment.

Passover-Door in Egypt

CH 4 of Joshua, FULL of prophecy. Here ’tis. FIRST: This takes place on PASSOVER again! From Egypt (slavery to sin) across the Jordan from death to eternal life) The Lord told Joshua to lead the entire (all 12 tribes) to 1. cross the Jordan 2. while He held the waters back 3. carrying stones from the Jordan to the other side. All Israel. To cross the Jordan (death) while God held the waters back (so those passing through death would not die and be lost ( representing not just spiritual death x 2 ie natural and into faith but God who accomplished it) across it, and each of the 12 tribes to take a stone ( large, not teeny) to erect on the other side (ooh, the Promised Land, heaven) for remembrance to place in front of the ark (the ark, if you recall is 3 parts- that the Holy of Holies with the stones of the 10 commandments – law; Manna- Bread of Life; and Aaron’s budding staff – life out from the wood representing the cross-both OT, NT, the lid, the mercy seat- that which we are not given punishment for what we deserve in front of the judgment seat, that which we DO deserve; the 2 angels protecting it as the 2 angels protected the body of Jesus) where the tent separated from the people only approachable by the High Priest separated tent in between the Holy of Holies {prophetic when it was torn top to bottom when Christ died on the cross… representing no access directly to the Father until Jesus died and was resurrected).

Holy of holies

The Holy place, just beyond the curtain, also only accessible by the High Priest filled with bread on a table, incense- the Holy Spirit) and the outer court, in front facing the people, where anyone could enter (the house of God) only with a High Priest who sacrificed for that person (representing Jesus as sacrifice) in the presence of the High Priest who turned then toward the back of the outer court to wash his hands in the laver (symbolic of baptism, the death of an animal for the scapegoat so to speak, ie also Jesus).
