OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so. – Joshua 5:13-15

Beloved no doubt you are persuaded that the entirety of scriptures from the book of Genesis to Revelation are the testimonies of our Lord Jesus Christ.

John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

Luke 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

Luke 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.

Jn 5:45 — Jn 5:47 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

As you come to the book of Joshua, Jesus our Lord is revealed as THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD. See it.

Jos 5:13 — Jos 5:15 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

Many because of their lack of knowledge had failed to identify this glorious personality.

Their thinking was that an angel had visited Joshua.

What you are going to discover about the angels of the Lord is that they don’t allow anyone to worship them.

Revelation 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

Rev 22:8 — Rev 22:9 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things. Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

This glorious visitor accepted the worship of Joshua.

Joshua 5:14 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?

So how do you know, the captain of the host of the Lord was Jesus? See what the Bible says in the new testament.

Heb 2:9 — Heb 2:10 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

In the old testament, He was revealed as the captain of the host of the Lord. In the new testament He was revealed as the captain of our salvation.

But then our Lord in His capacity as our captain, opens the door of earthly and eternal glory for believers of all ages and you in particular. See it yourself.

Heb 2:9 — Heb 2:10 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings

His vicarious sacrifice on the cross for believers , especially you, was to open the door of undeniable earthly and eternal glorious heritage.

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

Remember, you are created and called to glory according to the Bible.

1. Created for glory.

Isaiah 43:7 Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him.

2. Called to glory.

1Th 2:12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

2 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

Col 1:27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

Beloved, it is very important for you to know, that wholehearted obedience to Christ is the pathway to access and sustain this glorious earthly and eternal heritage.

Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

This was exactly what Joshua did, before our Lord, the captain of the host of the Lord, revealed to Him, what Israel must do for the wall of Jericho to come down. See it.

Jos 5:14 — Jos 5:15 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? And the captain of the Lord’s host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

Joshua was told to loose his shoe and without questioning , he did so and received desired directives from the Lord.

The reasons why multitude of believers have missed the best of God is because they failed to obey what they think is inconsequential commandment of God. See these and learn lifetime lessons.

1. Adam.

Genesis 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

You knew what happened to Adam. The whole world is still suffering from it till date.

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

2. King Saul was told to wait for Samuel for seven days.

He waited but because Samuel did not come in time on the seventh day, he offered sacrifice, which was the exclusive reserve of priests.

1 Samuel 13:8 And he tarried seven days, according to the set time that Samuel had appointed: but Samuel came not to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him.

1 Samuel 13:10 And it came to pass, that as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might salute him.

Because of the impatience of few hours, he lost the kingdom.

1Sa 13:13 — 1Sa 13:14 And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the Lord thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the Lord have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the Lord hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the Lord hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the Lord commanded thee.

3. Peter on the other hand turned his business failure to exceeding success, obeying inconsequential commandment like Joshua.

Luk 5:4 — Luk 5:6 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

Beloved please check up sincerely, it might be your outright disobedience to what you call inconsequential commandment, is responsible for the present challenges in your life.

SS 2:15 Take us the foxes,the little foxes, that spoil the vines:for our vines have tender grapes.

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is i£n you, except ye be reprobates?

May the good Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus mighty name.

Jesus’s vicarious sacrifice is the open door for believers and you to access eternal glory, which is your heritage through implicit obedience.

Heb 2:9 — Heb 2:10 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

OBEYING THE CAPTAIN OF THE HOST OF THE LORD FOR TRIUMPH | And the captain of the Lord’s host said, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; – Joshua 5:13-15

See His expectations from you to access eternal glory.

Col 3:1 — Col 3:4 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Jud 1:21 — Jud 1:24 Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

Beloved, because earthly and eternal glory are your undeniable heritage, that the vicarious sacrifice of Christ, provided for you. Then be resolute to render prompt and wholehearted obedience to Him in all things till He comes.

By doing this joyfully without being coerced.

No force of hell would be able to stop you from enjoying your glorious heritage in Jesus name.

Jeremiah 7:23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
