9/24 The 7 Nations we Face in our Christian Walk in Hearing God

Published on May 22, 2013 By Susanne

In our last post, we presented the idea that the lessons the Hebrew nation needed to learn as they followed Jehovah are the same lessons we need to learn as we follow Jesus.  They faced 7 enemies once they came to His Promised Land.

The seven nations that occupied Israel’s Promised Land teach us spiritual lessons, when we are conquering our own ‘Promised Land’.  Numbers 13 tells us that these giants were very real threats, with immense weapons.  “We are but grasshoppers in their sight….” the ten spies moaned.  That unbelief was the ‘last straw’ and Israel wandered in their wilderness of unbelief for 40 years.
