Joshua 1:1-9, Numbers 23:19, Numbers 13:30, 2 Chronicles 32:7
The book of Joshua announces to everyone that reads it that God kept his promise to Abraham and his descendants.
* It had nothing to do with Moses or Joshua; it was the Lord who gave the land to them.
* To show that when the Lord makes a promise it is as if it has already happened.
* When God makes a promise it has already happened.
