Joshua

Because of YHWH Elohim’s LOVE, I serve Yahoshua Ben YHWH.  I show kindness to humanity.

Before “Joshua”, named “Joshua” his name was “Oshea”, from the same root, “Hosea”, “Yahoshua”. Joshua, “Johovah saved” expresses how Moshe’s face and Joshua’s face are, a faithful reflection of the master’s teachings. Joshua’s mission to plant seeds of Torah in the Land of Israel and to shape new existence in which the people found themselves. Miracles upon miracles were provided to Falashaed Israelites. YHWH provided food, water, and protection from attack. Upon entering the land plowing, planting, digging, irrigating, fighting and defense in allegiance to YHWH and His Torah, gave Israel victory and prosperity.

This truth is inculcated in the minds, hearts and soul of the people. The people must have been, must be and will be confident and loyal to Joshua, “Yahoshua Ben YHWH”. Joshua lead Israel in battle and instilled them with the assurance that Hebrew warriors may not neglect spiritual and moral responsibilities. He fulfill commandment that Canaanites who refused to make shalom could not be allowed to survive. Joshua divided the land among the tribes and established eternal borders of the land and its character states. Joshua assured that there would be national unity amid tribal differences, especially in the case of the two and a half tribes that had chosen to and some forced to remain on the east bank of Jordan.  Joshua was successful.

Amidst success, were failures of national will and tragedies.  Joshua pushed for the tribes to strengthen their resolve and complete conquest of the land. Most allowed Canaanites to remain in the land. In being sent to the land of Assyria, YHWH’s divine will was not for Israel to take on the ways of the Assyrian’s but to be strong in YHWH’s way, truth and life, amidst being amongst the Assyrians. Israel had been warned that allowing pockets of Canaanites to remain would lead idolatry in Israel. Results of weakness rose in the Book of Judges. Yes, they were and we are in the world but not of it. Yes, we may be amongst Canaanites, but we must not allow Canaanite influence to be valedictorian over Joshua, Yahoshua, the nation of Israel. As Moshe and Joshua radiated wisdom and kodoshness, so too must Israel.

I was reading a book in which the words “Nigga done did that” were written. When I read the words, I thought of how Hebrews are of a particular faith, reason, tradition and conversation, from low degrees to high degrees, from “niggas” to “Negus”. Yahoshua, the high degree, done did that! Working and keeping that salvation is the task at hand.

Process of weighing, legally based on the evidence, happened before YHWH’s judgment. YHWH saved, in the past, is saving in the present and will save in the future. YHWH commands salvation. Yahoshua, Joshua was commanded and had three major responsibilities –to divide the land, observe the Torah and war. In complete exertion in the areas of his mission he was commanded to be strong and courageous. YHWH told Yahoshua, Joshua son of Nun, that as YHWH was with Moshe, so will YHWH be with Yahoshua; YHWH would not release nor forsake Joshua. Joshua 1:1-9.

Give thanks and praises! YHWH is good and YHWH’s goodness endures forever. Low degree or High degree….

Because of YHWH Elohim’s LOVE, I serve Yahoshua Ben YHWH and am able to show kindness to humanity.

Ihit Ahkotee,

Mary Rose
