God’s Mighty Warriors
Exploring Joshua - 2 Kings
After Israel’s test in the wilderness, we see God’s mighty warriors arise. Joshua leads the charge to take the Promised Land. Then, deliverers rise up to take back what the enemy has stolen. Men and women like Othniel, Deborah, Gideon, and Samson pioneer revolutionary change. In this subject, we will focus on God’s mighty warriors. You will learn from both their successes and failures. Most of all, by studying their example you will train to be a soldier in God’s revolutionary army. Hebrews 11:32-33 says, "And what more shall I say? For time will fail me if I tell of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, of David and Samuel and the prophets, who by faith conquered kingdoms, performed acts of righteousness, obtained promises, shut the mouths of lions, quenched the power of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, from weakness were made strong, became mighty in war, put foreign armies to flight” (NASB).
Empowering & Equipping
Jesus commanded us to make disciples. But what did he mean? What is a disciple? And, how can you become one? In this subject, you will discover what Jesus meant when he taught about discipleship. You will also be trained to make disciples. Get equipped to both be a disciple and empowered to reproduce disciples. God is calling you to be part of his army of spiritual revolutionaries and pioneers. Don’t delay anymore; the time is now. Jesus said, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:18-20, NASB).
