    is also a great promise for those who heed the Word of the Lord: success, prosperity and the peace and presence of God Himself.

History The story of Joshua and the conquest of the promised land covers a span of approximately forty years following the death of Moses, circa 1405–1365 B.C. These dates are derived from 1 Kings 6:1 that states King Solomon’s fourth year of reign coincided with Israel’s departure from Egypt that occurred 480 years prior.

Israel required a leader who would lean solely upon God’s authority and yield completely in obedience . This replacement was found in Joshua. Joshua was commissioned to be Moses’ successor by God (Num. 27:18-23; Deut. 31:7, 14, 23) to bring into reality the covenant promise made to…
