5/7c The Terms of the Covenant for the Land by Jehovah

Published on June 11, 2012 By Susanne

As Joshua and the people entered Jehovah’s Land, they met with abundance and fertile soil.  They were victorious as city after city heard of their acheivements. 

However, their heart still needed to stay true to the conditions of their Covenant with Jehovah…  A sacrifice and a Seal was given as with all the other Covenants.

3.  The Conditions, or Terms to keep

Jehovah reaffirmed that the Promised Land was His, Leviticus 25:23-24.  Israel was only the Steward of the Land.  Jehovah then goes on to reaffirm the covenant with Joshua by three commands, Deuteronomy 5:1-4.

a)  The need to keep the Law – the 10 commandments, Deuteronomy 5:1-21.

b)  To continue in their love and obedience to Him, Deuteronomy 6:3-4, 10:12-16.
