Today's passage of Scripture is Joshua 2:9-11 which reads: "And Rahab said unto the men, I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and that your terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land faint because of you. For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon and Og, whom ye utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the Lord your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath."
Today's Covenant & the Cross quote about the Bible is from Charles Spurgeon. He said: "The more you read the Bible, the more you meditate on it, the more you will be astonished by it."
Our topic for today is titled "Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho -- and Hazor Too (Part 2)" from the book, "The Promise and the Blessing" by Dr. Michael A. Harbin.

This system demonstrated a degraded view of God and religious ideals.
