The Joshua Campaign in Song

I’m calling you, I’m calling you! Joshua, right now!
it is time to stand up, it is time  to run!
See what I have for you, this place in the SON.

YAH!

Now your name is Joshua, that is who you are!
Joshua, run now! Deep into the  Land, and far ..
Go where I called you to be, what I have set in front of you!
Where you belong in me!

In my father’s place, there is room for you to go …
In my fathers kingdom there is room for you to grow!

Look into my eyes right now. See who you really are!
Look into my eyes right now. See who you really are!

Abide in me, my Joshua tribe!

Do not fear this place, I have given you this space, to …

OCCUPY!
OCCUPY!
OCCUPY!

The garments I see is for the runner, a cover around his loins.*
That’s all!

A spear in his hand
That’s all!

Running into the land
That’s all!   YAH!

What is that barrier from wilderness  to promise?
what is that to you?

Fear will only keep you, from doing what
you know you can do. YAH!

Faith will leap you, across the hidden gates.
… past the darkness that whispers (hesitate).

Yes- u- RUN- Yes-u-Run- Yesurun- Yeshurun Jeshurun JESHURUN!*

Now Go, now GO, NOW GO!

AN Army of Joshuas’ I see them stand, spear in hand, girded only about the loins,
with speed, and light-footed stealth, they run across the invisible trench, to the other side.

They arrive … in  a flood of fearless resolve, they OCCUPY! OCCUPY! OCCUPY!

A people GOD strong! A peculiar nation, a holy priesthood, GOD strong!

What will we take lord? What will you show us? What strong holds are coming down, never again to be found? Only rubble in its place, a broken base.

Making strides. Taking your place.

A fashioned city come from within, built upon a corner-stone where no man’s hand has been. From with in its wall, come …  trade.

Life for death, revelation for the blind, healing for the sick, and peace for the mind. Can you see it now? Jeshurun? Can you go there now? Jeshurun?

Will not a river from you flow? Oh holy city, Now? Will not virtue like a stream go out …  and flood the barren soul?  NOW?

From the ankle, to the hip, up the neck, a cross the lips, over head, now immersed … to the nations now dispersed …

The knowledge of God his Glory too, will fill the earth through and through.

1 Peter 2:9

New International Version (©1984)
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

*Jeshurun, in the Hebrew Bible, is a poetic name for Israel. Derived from root word meaning upright, just, straight. Describes Israel when it does not stray away from the high standards set by and upheld by God.

Joshua 1: 11-12 (The Message)

… Make sure you carry out The Revelation that Moses commanded you, every bit of it. Don’t get off track, either left or right, so as to make sure you get to where you’re going. And don’t for a minute let this Book of The Revelation be out of mind. Ponder and meditate on it day and night, making sure you practice everything written in it. Then you’ll get where you’re going; then you’ll succeed. Haven’t I commanded you? Strength! Courage! Don’t be timid; don’t get discouraged. God, your God, is with you every step you take.”

Joshua Campaign The Vision

In prayer the Lord began to show me in a vision what he called His Joshuas’. I saw what looked like a company of  long distance runners  leap up from out of their place of hiding, and go into a full run with spear in hand; with  nothing more but a cover girded about their loins. They crossed over a divide in the earth from what I knew was the wilderness into the land of promise.

Why Joshua was portrayed as a  runner in this vision is a word from the Lord. It speaks to God’s people regarding the kind of campaign he is calling us into. As it was time in Joshua’s day to take the land, so it is now time for these, his anointed, to come out from the hidden place and cross this great divide, out of the wilderness and into the promise, into a new place where  this generation has never been before  in the strength and stamina of the Lord,  not to be weighed down with the cares of this world. There is a factor of “stealth” in this vision, as well.

For every campaign of the Lord there is a “wisdom” on how to approach it. We see this in the accounts of how God instructed each “taking” of the cities in Canaan. In what God has for us now in the days ahead, we are to “run quietly caring a long spear.”  The word of the Lord that goes before us, and gets there, long before WE do! In that way we will easily slide into our place, and reside in our promise.

The loin cover was of animal skin. When ever I see that I remember the sacrifice of the life of the animal that provides our cover. Christ is the sacrificial lamb who took away the sin of the world. All that  this sacrifice has provided for us should be that which girds us. Bears us up, and strengthens us.

We have a place of promise that God is calling us into as a people, for this generation’s strongholds to be taken down, and places for us to occupy, in the Spirit and in the natural on this world’s stage. In this season, I see where these Joshuas’ move into their promise as determined and focused as an Ethiopian messenger glides across the African landscape with out a sound, with out spectacle. I see it like this: They will come into their places and it will be as if they have always been there. Just be, just do, just  OCCUPY!

The Lord bless you as you follow him, may his Life encompass you always.
