    Hello Sister Ruth. I believe you're referring to Joshua chapter 7 and to Achan's sin. We only know what has been given us in this chapter and specifically that Achan had taken the garment, silver & gold and hid them in a hole in the ground. And we also know that when his sin was found out and to spare the children of Israel the full force of judgement against them, both Achan & his family were judged & condemned to death.

    Though not mentioned, it seems likely (and this is only a personal thought, not in Scripture), that someone in the family may also have been aware of what Achan had done; it would be difficult to carry & conceal such a large booty from family, even others continually milling around his tent & in that area. He may have sworn his family to secrecy, thus drawing them also into condemnation since they did not reveal his sin to Joshua when first known. And so his family, animals, even his tent were destroyed, thereby removing every blemish of sin from their midst. This act satisfied God & He returned to bless them & gave them victory over their enemies (Joshua chapter 8), and Israel would have had another powerful lesson about having a proper fear of the LORD, that what the LORD says must be obeyed or there will be consequences.

    We are all sinners. In different ways. God still loves us and offers the opportunity to adjust and correct the paths we walk upon. Daily. He saved me and I'm here to tell you, He can save you.

    Are you familiar with the parable of the lost sheep? ( Luke 15) If not it is wonderful to read while placing ourselves "in the hooves" of the lost sheep. Check it out!

    Do not allow the condemnation of others to push you away from God. A true Christian should firstly approach this issue and others with the love that our Father has provided to each of us, when we were sinful or blinded. (We are not the Hebrew Israelites standing on corners shaming people. That is not what Jesus did.) Should you seek Jesus, you will find him. Which requires laying down of many things. To receive a new heart.

    God Bless you and keep you!

    Hi Samantha.

    Homosexuality is a sin as well as heterosexual without marriage is fornication, stealing, killing, etc. When we accept Christ in our life, "On his terms" ( Romans-10:9-10.) he saves us. This comes after knowing we are sinners and condemned without him.

    John 3:16-18. Notice the emphasis on believe in these verses?

    God gives us his spirit to convict us, guide us, teach us and gives the power and strength to change us. Change may not come immediately but the guilt will. You coming on the site may have expressed that. Salvation is the works of Christ alone but when we're saved we are to bare fruit of righteousness and repent. Sanctification is a work of the Holyspirit. Being made new we shouldn't continue in sin. Not perfection but a continuance of progression. Romans 6:1-11.

    Keep in prayer, God will judge you by your heart. If your heart is pure change will follow.

    God bless.

    Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Leviticus 18:22

    Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. John 3:7

    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

    I am warning you. Repent! You are kindling God's anger.
  • Finding Love Through Gods Love For Us - In Reply on Joshua 1 - 2 years ago
    You sound like me 40 years ago. My love life was many betrayals. I blamed God. Rama's far as I could, BUT He came to get me at my lowest point in life (near to death). He came to my house because I wasn't going to church.

    He let me see Him, I felt like I had been resuscitated. Shocked. I was accused by a pal that astrology was FALSE. 2 Timothy 3:5. I had an old Bible, never opened. I read every scripture on stars, astrologers, false teachers, and then I saw the death sentence (promise) for being an astrologer.

    My salvation was at home and I heard the wind of the Holy Spirit in my house!'

    Please listen to me. In Song of Solomon, God says, I AM MY BELOVEDS AND MY BELOVED IS MINE. He says it 3 times. God loves you. That love is never going to leave you. He loves you so much, His Son bled and died for you. He is waiting to be the Lover of your soul. In Genesis 24 (I call it the True Romance Chapter).

    God brings the man to his wife to be. She totally waters his camels with her veil on. She was obedient and fell in love at first sight of Isaac. She returned to his house on a journey, and was married in the presence of Isaacs ailing mother and with Abraham, Isaacs Dad. Time passes and it says that Isaac died with joy and happiness of that good marriage. Read it.

    This time, after you fully commit your life to Jesus; pick a Bible Teaching Church. Help out in childrens church part time. Attend Singles meetings or start one: like potluck lunches after church. Be visible to the single guys. They are looking for a "Rebekah". A woman of character.

    It's not about physical beauty. It's how a man knows to respect a woman. Meet her family. Let her Dad know she will be treated with respect. You'll find your mate

    For now, ask the Lord to cleanse, restore your virtue, and make old memories and betrayals FADE_and restore to patient expectations.

    Rekindle your relationship with your Dad. Ask him what made him pick your mother?

    You ask: Where are the waters from above?

    The moisture including rain and snow fall to our earth, from the Heavens above. God can provide us with this vital water, and can also take it away. He reminds us of this periodically, with floods, and droughts.

    When you say impossible: nothing is impossible for God.

    Luke 1:37

    "For with God nothing shall be impossible."

    God Bless.

    We love Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison , don't know if Roy was a Christian but Mr Cash definately was , we are going to hear some awesome singing in the world to come , I have a terrible singing voice ! Music is an instant fix for me , it is such a joy and it even helps me to get through all the boring chores of the day . How awesome must the Israelites have sounded as they sang songs of praise in David and Solomon's days .
  • Mishael - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago
    One night I kept hearing this same song being sung in my spirit. I almost got annoyed with my brain!

    Then it hit me. The Holy Spirit was singing it.

    I get in the closet under the clothes :D

    It's one of my fav songs: "I Walk The Line" by Johnny Cash. First I'm thinking I missed it, made a mistake?

    He starts singing and so do I. He was singing to me! I love him so much my heart feels about to erupt. You'd think he'd prefer Handells Messiah, but He knows what we are on the inside. I always wonder if I gross Him outbut He sings a country tune with me. Happy tears!
  • Mishael - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago

    14 And God said, Let there be LIGHTS in the firmament of the HEAVEN to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

    15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

    16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the STARS also.

    17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

    18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good.

    19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

    No offense, but your claims are hollow. God made all provision for mankind. Read Proverbs 8:21-36

    The Bible, the ENTIRE BIBLE; is about a person: JESUS CHRIST. From Genesis to Revelation.

    > IF HE HAD WANTED TO INCLUDE A CHAPTER explaining: space, what's under the oceans, land masses, and all that scientific jazz__no scientists, archaeologists, geologists, Vulcanologists, meteorologists etc would've been able to be BORN AGAIN. Science was to teach them SOMEONE MADE ALL OF THIS!!! Romans chapter 1.

    In saying what you did, as Romans 1 says: You are without excuse. You've kicked the GODHEAD to the proverbial Curb.

    Genesis 1:1

    The Father purposes

    The Word (Jesus) speaks. ( John 1:1)

    The Spirit (Holy Spirit) Action. executes the spoken word.

    You can't imagine anyone greater than you are. Worshipping stars and planets carries a death sentence. I used to be one of those people. And then Jesus appeared to me in a vision. I saw Him.

    2 Timothy 3:5. I was teaching something that had no power. He's the only one who can save you from the darkness just out of our range of sight. You haven't a clue what you are missing out on: Knowing personally the Person who made all of this. Knowing his mind, his heart, his voice in your spirit. Telling you that you are LOVED.

    Hi Ilya , it doesn't sound to me as if you like the Bible very much . If you have come on here to shake the faith of those of us who do like it , you will have to do much better than that . Good luck .
  • Chris - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago
    Ilya. You're referring to the wrong book. The Bible doesn't speak of 'space/outer space', because these words were unknown then. The Web tells me the following: "The expression outer space was used as an astronomical term by Alexander von Humboldt in 1845. It was later popularized in the writings of H. G. Wells in 1901."

    So, if you want to see more about outer space or "the heavens" in the Bible, then T. Levis has given you many verses to work through.
  • T. Levis - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago
    Please excuse the incorrect scriptures that were irrelevant. There is an error that has been occuring lately with alteration of my noted scriptures.

    You are welcome to use searching boxes for additional research on this issue.
  • T. Levis - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago
    You just want an argument. I spent my time volunteering, studying the scriptures, freely; to help you. To point out scriptures for you to clearly show you GOD's infallible WORD points out the earth being round & rotation around in orbital circuit) before science ever could imagine. I am actually very interested in interstellar activity & scientific planetary discovery. We follow it rather closely. That's why I was quick to jump at your questions. (while everyone else skipped it)

    The more I study GOD's WORD the more I am in awe of how much it really does say about space. I just recently found the scripture that I noted earlier That the heaven belongs to GOD but the earth ._to/for man. I would love to see a base on the moon & other planets, however that scripture hit me hard. It is GOD's not man's, what an amazing privilege to allow us to explore, yet very difficult, costly etc. i.e. The spacesuits needed for the moon trip won't even be ready for the scheduled & approved, expected missions of 2024! The more I study & witness history I've seen the Bible doesn't contradict science, science over time ends up proving the Bible is true & even logical reasons for GOD's laws.

    Whenever you really would like answers for questions in life, the WORD, prayer, truth = we are here 24/7
  • Ilya - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago
    Genesis 1:16 Just refering to God making lights in the firmament of heaven, not a word about space

    1 Cor 15:14 Nothing to do with space

    Genesis 2:4 Not related at all

    Psalms 115:16

    16The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S: but the earth hath he given to the children of men.

    "the lack of breathable atmosphere, radiation, medical complications?"

    What? Scripture is not for private interpretation.

    None of the rest of the verses have at all any implication of space, please point me the exact words or phrase, where the existence of space is even remotely implied. I will point you to exact words where space is outright denied, in a second.

    But some of the verses you provided actually hint at the solid nature of heavens.

    Isaiah 40:

    "Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?"

    First of all, not a word about other planets, second "meted out heaven with the span". It's impossible to measure something with a span that is not solid.

    Job 22:12 Is not God in the height of heaven? and behold the height of the stars, how high they are!

    Space has no height, it stretches in all directions, solid heavens have height.

    Joel 2:10 The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble

    How something not solid can tremble?

    Now I assure you, there's plenty of scripture that directly states, that the earth is flat, unmovable, and there's no space or other planets, but I would like you to debunk first this one please:

    Gen 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.

    7 And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.

    8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

    Where are the waters above?
  • T. Levis - In Reply on Joshua 1:9 - 2 years ago
    Genius 1:16

    Amos 5:8

    1 Corinthians 15:14

    Genius 2:4

    Psalms 115:16 (space) the lack of breathable atmosphere, radiation, medical complications?

    Psalms 147:4

    Psalms 136:9

    Revelation 6:13

    Job 25:5

    Job 9:7

    Job 22:12

    Psalms 8:3

    Joel 2:10 Eclipse? Ezekiel 32:7 , Isaiah 50:3

    Isaiah 13:10

    Isaiah 40::22

    Hopefully these scripture verses help you better research the Bible & what more it says about Earth, and space. There are more.

    Perhaps Great way to get to the Truth in a scripture when there is a debatable topic is to consider ALL the scripture, especially the ones directly associated with the topic.

    If you don't believe a scripture is saying what your counterpart is saying, ( Explain what it do mean, Don't treat it like it don't exist.)

    See what it's saying in the original language.

    And see if it Line up with the 66 books.

    For example:

    Revelation 1:8 (KJV) I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, ""the Almighty."

    Isaiah 9:6 (KJV) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, ""The mighty God,""

    ""The everlasting Father,"" The Prince of Peace.

    And these 2 out of Malachi:

    Malachi 2:17 (KJV) Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

    Malachi 3:1 (KJV) Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

    Don't just Argue your points, Give your interpretation to the other viewers point.
  • S Spencer - In Reply on Joshua 1 - 3 years ago
    Hi Robert.

    I just perceived you was preparing to debate the topic, I just wanted you to state your case, There's others that would love to engage in a humble dialog with you if you wish to.

    Let's not forget Love, Humility and Meekness is a fruit of the spirit. And the scripture says you shall know them by their fruit.

    God blessings to you.

  • Carleton - In Reply on Joshua 1 - 3 years ago
    Robert, there are so many testimonies of those who were blind and now can see and the evidence is seen by others in their regenerated and believing lives now in peace with God and man. Likely you have seen this evidence here and there in this earth.
