Moses was dead. The Lord commanded for Joshua to arise and start speaking the Word.
Joshua was instructed to implement non-stop speaking (declaring) of truth as he prepared to possess what God had already given through promise.
God told Joshua that the Word should not depart from his mouth—not only his heart, his peh—his mouth! Joshua’s mouth must continually be speaking or murmuring the word of the Torah—divine instruction! For then would his way be prosperous, and then he would have success! (Jerusalemchanneltv)
The Hebrew word used here for “meditate” is hagah, which means literally, “to utter— to murmur, mutter, to make a sound. So Joshua was instructed to speak the Word 24/7!
“Shall not doubt but shall believe,” this is the key. God is faithful to His Word. His Word is His son. God is faithful to His Son. When you believe what you say and do not doubt, you release your faith, the power of heaven and things get accomplished.
You release your faith by speaking!
In Genesis 1 God created the world by speaking and releasing His faith through the spoken Word. He created our world by 10 commands.
We are made in His image, with mouths and voice and minds to think with. We release our faith through the spoken word.
Faith is substance.We understand things by Faith. How do we get Faith?
By hearing; hearing the rhema of God.
According to vs 8 The Word of Faith is in our mouth.
We live by Faith. We believe in Salvation by Faith.
Psalm 81:10 TPT! (A rhyme)
I am your only God, the living God.
Wasn’t I the one who broke the strongholds over you
and raised you up out of bondage?
Open your mouth with a mighty decree;
I will fulfill it now, you’ll see!
The words that you speak, so shall it be!
When you meditate God’s Word, that is what will come out of your heart.
God has given you dreams and visions to declare to bring them to pass.
This decade is a decade of declarations. An emphatic statement. A formal or explicit statement or announcement.
What we are doing is stating a claim against our adversary and stating that something that was written is ours.
In the Jewish year 5780, 80 is the Jewish letter Pey, which is mouth. The eighties is the decade of declaring!
Hence, declaring God’s Word and proclaiming His gospel. In order for God’s plan to come to pass, we must declare, preach!
How shall they hear without a preacher?
