  1. Joshua 19 By: Jim Crews Joshua 19: 1 - 9 Here is a list of the cities and boundaries for the tribe of Simeon. Simeon shared some land with Judah, because the land given to Judah was too big for them. Joshua 19: 10 - 16 Here are the boundaries and cities allotted to the tribe of Zebulun. Joshua 19: 17 - 23 Here are the boundaries and cities allotted to the tribe of Issachar. Joshua 19: 24 - 31 Here are the boundaries and cities allotted to the tribe of Asher. Joshua 19: 32 - 39 Here are the boundaries and cities allotted to the tribe of Naphtali. Joshua 19: 40 - 48 Here are the boundaries and cities allotted to the tribe of Dan. When they lost their territory, the people fought and took over the city of Leshem. They renamed the city Dan. Joshua 19: 49 - 50 When they finished distributing land, they gave Joshua a portion for himself and his family. They gave Joshua the city of Timnath-sera, which he rebuilt and lived in with his family. Joshua 19: 51 The land was finally divided among the tribes.
  2. Vol.VI No.V Pg.6 July 1969 Advice To Preachers, From 1844 Robert F. Turner Last month we quoted a portion of the last article written for publication by the pioneer Barton W. Stone. We conclude that article this month, urging you to read and appreciate the spirit and wisdom of this advice given to a young would-be-preacher, in the year 1844. The first three articles of advice were: (1) Read carefully the Old and New Testament, comparing the English with recommended Greek tests, consulting the Greek Concordance for comparison readings, and the Lexicons for careful word studies. Re-read, making notes. Mingle all study with prayer. (2) Read church history: Moshiems, D Aubigne, Neander, etc.; taking note of vital information. Pray. (3) Now, re-read the Bible, making reference to Commentaries such as Henry, McKnight, etc., on difficult passages. Remember that commentators make the scriptures bend to their peculiar systems and speak the language of Ashdod. Learn to think for yourself. Continue in prayer. (4.) During your studies, let your seat be always filled in the house of God every Lords day, and other days appointed for divine worship. Pray and exhort publicly among the brethren. This will prepare you for future operations. Many fill their heads with studied divinity, and when they go forth to preach, know not how to speak, and have to supply the lack by reading a discourse written, or committed to memory. Remember, my son, reading is not preaching. (5.) Keep yourself, as much as practicable, from too much company and irrelevant conversation. These too often intrude upon your studies and devotions. (6.) When you are by your brethren sent forth to preach, confine your ministration to practical subjects. Young preachers are too fond of polemic divinity, and abstruse subjects. Vanity is at the bottom, and will ruin them, if not checked by an humble spirit. (7.) Let the glory of God and the salvation of souls be your polar star; then will your labors be blest in the world; and a crown of righteousness be given you at the coming of the Lord. (8) You are blessed with a wealthy, pious father, who is able and willing to support you without the aid of the churches. Go then to the destitute, and build on no mans foundation, taking nothing for your services. Many poor preachers have to confine themselves to the churches, or get no help. You will not be under this necessity. May the Lord go with you, and be to you a father and a helper in every time of trouble. Be humble. B. W. Stone At the risk of being boresome, we re-emphasize this century-old advice to would-be preachers: FIRST: Study Gods word, letting word-studies be the key to understanding. NEXT: Know the history of the church, falling away, etc. THEN, use other helps; and dedicate yourself fully to Gods work.

  4. Joshua 18 By: Jim Crews Joshua 18: 1 The entire congregation of Israel assembled at Shiloh and set up the Tabernacle. The land was subdued. Joshua 18: 2 - 7 Seven tribes had not yet had their portion of the land given to them at this time. Joshua asked them how long they were going to sit around and not go take what was theirs. The example we see here is that God gave them the land, but they had to do something to possess it. Joshua sent men to survey the land and divide it into seven portions. They cast lots to see which tribe got what portion. The Levites did not get any land. Joshua 18: 8 - 10 The men went out and surveyed the land as Joshua had commanded them. They returned and the seven portions were divided by lot. Joshua 18: 11 - 20 Here is a detailed description of the portion given to the tribe of Benjamin. Joshua 18: 21 - 28 Here is a list of the cities that were contained in the portion given to Benjamin. Jerusalem was one of them. There were fourteen cities in all in the portion given to Benjamin.
  5. Vol.VI No.V Pg.5 July 1969 Life-Food From God Robert F. Turner In this series we continue to insist upon the external nature of divine authority, and the necessity for an objective approach to this authority. Look carefully at the lessons in Johns record of Jesus. (Jn. 6:26-f.) Following the miraculous feeding of the multitude, Jesus accused the people of refusing that which His works proved (i.e., His divinity, the source of the works) and coming to Him for the loaves and fishes. He urged them to seek rather the eternal food which the Son of man shall give unto you; for Him hath God the Father sealed. (Vs. 27) This meant believing on Him whom the Father had sent. They asked for more bread, as Moses had given; and Jesus replied that the true heavenly bread is He whom God had sent to die for their salvation. (Vs. 31-35) The Father is the source of this blessing since Jesus came to do the Fathers will; so, in this sense, the Father gives people to the Lord (Vs. 37-f) and No man can come... except the Father... draw. (Vs. 44—45) Explanation: they shall all be taught of God. The thought is NOT taught about God — but God must be the source of the teaching. Robertson says this is ablative, and cites 1 Cor. 2:13 as a parallel. Other Greek scholars call it subjective genitive, and both grammar and context agree that the drawing teaching has God, not man, as its source. Does this argue some direct experience or implantation of knowledge and faith? Jesus answers (next verse) Not that any man hath seen the Father... I am that bread of life. Then follows the extension of this food figure to include meat (his flesh) and later blood to drink. (Compare living water Jn. 4:10—14) His point is, they must receive Him — His teaching — as being from the Father; and he that hath seen me hath seen the Father. (Jn. 14:9) If some immediate and intuitive fellowship with God was intended, this would render the coming of the Son unnecessary; and invalidate the whole context of Jesus teaching here. (There is no reference here to the Lords Supper. Jesus said, vs. 57. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father; so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. Life (spiritual, eternal) proceeds from the Father, via the Son, and is ours only as we receive, believe, abide in the teaching of Christ — in this way, abide in Christ. See following.) As some disciples murmured, Jesus made specific application of previous statements. (Vs. 63) — the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. Jesus must be received as the Son of God, and we must do His will, even, as He did the will of the Father. Note Vs. 65; because Jesus knew some did not believe, he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. (emphasis mine, to point up relation established in all of these verses.) We can study, learn, believe and abide in Christ and His teachings — finding life in His words — or we can say, This is hard (vs. 60) and walk no more with Him. (Vs. 66) (See 67-f)
