Let's review our Joshua lessons with a song:
Joshua led the people of Israel, Israel, Israel.
Joshua led the people of Israel, now the story we will tell!
Two spies were helped by Rahab, she hid them carefully,
A red cord out her window did save her family.(repeat first two lines)
Now you march around the city, one time for six days straight,
On the 7th day, march 7 times, give a shout and celebrate!(repeat first two lines)
Now don't make an agreement, with the people in this land,
But the Gibeonites fooled Joshua, and their trickery would stand.(repeat first two lines)
Yes, the Gibeonites had become an everyday sight in the camp at Gilgal, as they chopped wood and hauled water. Joshua and the people of Israel kept their promise to the Gibeonites, and all seemed to be going well. But Joshua chapter 10 begins: Now it came to pass, when Adonizedec king of Jerusalem had heard how Joshua had taken Ai?and completely destroyed it, as he had done to Jericho, and how the people of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, they were greatly afraid, because Gibeon was a great city, as one of the royal cities, and because all the men in Gibeon were mighty. So Adonizedec king of Jerusalem gathered 4 other powerful kings and all their armies, and they ALL went to battle against Gibeon.
What do you think the Gibeonites did when they saw this vast army gathering around their city?Joshua 10：6 says: And the men of Gibeon sent to Joshua" Come and help us, quick!" they cried to Joshua. The Gibeonites knew where to go for help! Never had they heard of a God so powerful to save and help as Israel's God. He is the same powerful God today, and He says in Isaiah 45：22, "Look unto Me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth：for I am God, and there is none else. " The God of Israel is the God Who created all things, including you and me. He has all power and there is no problem too big for Him! Not even the biggest problem you and I have, and that is sin.
当基遍人看到这么多军队聚集在城的周围，他们是什么反应呢？约书亚记10章6节讲到？基遍人就打发人往吉甲的营中去见约书亚，说："求你速速上来拯救我们，帮助我们。" 这些基遍人实在是知道到哪里去寻求帮助！他们从来没有听说过哪一位神像以色列的神一样有能力，而且他今天也一样有能力，他在以赛亚书45章22节说："地极的人都当仰望我，就必得救。因为我是神，再没有别神！" 以色列人的神就是那位创造了宇宙万有，创造了你和我的神。他大有能力，在神没有不可能的事。甚至是我们最大的问题，就是罪的问题。
You may think your bad grades in school, or your lack of money, or your lack of friends is your biggest problem. But none of those problems last forever. God says the problem of sin keeps us separated from Him and His wonderful heaven forever. Do you know where to go for help with your sin problem?The same place the Gibeonites went!
