JOSHUA 22

2 Outlines

 

Joshua 22:1-8

HONORABLE DISCHARGE!

 

I am proud to say that I am a Vietnam veteran. The most valuable result I have from that experience is an honorable discharge! An honorable discharge is given to men and women who have served their countries well while being in the military.

 

There was a time when Joshua handed out an honorable discharge to the 2 1/2 tribes who had settled on the other side of the Jordan River. They helped the other tribes conquer the land. See Numbers 32:1-33, and Joshua 1:12-18.

 

THEY WERE REWARDED Vss. 1-3, 8

1. They received their commander's "Well done!" Vss. 1-3

2. They received physical rewards. Note that they were to share with those who stayed home to take care of things there. Numbers 31:25-27,

1 Samuel 30:21-25 (The Christian is looking for the Savior's "Well done!" and crowns.)

 

THEY WERE RETURNED Vss. 4,6,7

For the Christian, we are looking for our return to Heaven.

We are citizens of that land. This life is temporary. Philippians 3:20

 

THEY WERE REMINDED Vs. 5

They were to stay loyal to their God to "take diligent heed".
