Title: Exploring the Promised Land


1
Exploring the Promised Land
2
  • Back in Egypt, the Israelites were being used as
    slaves under the terrible hand of Pharaoh.
  • God saw that His people were in distress and
    chose Moses to lead them out of Egypt.

3
  • Moses and the people began their journey to a
    land that God promised to them
  • Throughout their journey, the Lord reminded His
    people that He would never leave them nor
    forsake them

4
  • Moses led the people until they reached the
    Jordan River, which was right outside of Canaan

5
  • The Lord then ordered Moses to send some men to
    explore the promised land
  • There were 12 men that Moses was sending into the
    promised land (one from each tribe) to see if it
    was fitting for them to live.

6
  • After a long journey, they finally reached the
    land and found it to be rich and fertile.
  • After spending forty days in the land, they
    brought back with them grapes, figs and
    pomegranates to give to the Israelites

7
  • We went to the land where you sent us. It truly
    flows with milk and honey and this is its fruit.
    Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are
    strong the cities are fortified and very large.
    (Numbers1327-28)

8
  • 10 of the men that Moses sent said that the
    people of the promised land were giants and there
    was no way that they could fight them and win!!
  • However, the other two men did not agree. They
    knew that with the Lords help they could win any
    battle!

9
  • Joshua and Caleb were the only two that trusted
    in God and His power
  • And because of this God promised them that they
    would be the only 2 from these men that will get
    to see the promised land!

10
  • The war begun and just like the Lord promised,
    His people won and gained victory over the giants
    of the promised land.
  • The ten men that did not trust in Gods promise
    died in battle
  • Since Joshua and Caleb had faith in God, they
    were able to go to the promised land along with
    the rest of the Israelites.

11
Questions
  • Whom did God use to lead His people out of Egypt?
  • What was the name of the promised land?
  • How many men did Moses send to check out the
    land?
  • How many of the men gave a good report about the
    promised land?
  • What were their names?
  • Why did God reward them and not the others?

12
Questions
  • What was one thing that you learned from this
    lesson?
  • What do you think God was trying to teach the
    Israelites?

13
Conclusion
  • The person that truly trusts the Lord and relies
    on Him for everything that he/she does will be
    successful and have victory in everything in
    his/her life
  • The second any of us
  • start doubting God, we
  • will see that we will gain
  • nothing in life except for
  • hardships

14
Memory Verse
  • I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong
    and of good courage.
  • - Joshua 15,6
