Lesson 7 Joshua: Lessons from the Promised Land "The Southern and Northern Campaigns"

Lesson 7, The Southern and Northern Campaigns (17:08)

In Lesson 7, Joshua and the Israelites are on the move, beginning with a series of battles against a confederation of the Amorite kings! In victory after victory, they sweep across the South, and then turn their sights to the North. Hidden in this lesson are two amazing miracles!! Over a seven-year period they conquer 31 kings. Patti relates this story to a collective string of victories God won through their medical mission team in Uganda, operating in the anointing of the local church there. How exciting! We can also have strings of victories in our Christian lives as well, if we follow the principles laid out in the book of Joshua.
