Lesson Number 27

Background Notes

Doctrinal Point(s)

  1. Every believer has a portion in the land.
  2. The Lord's portion is His people.

Practical Application

  1. Let's set the example like Joshua.

Questions

  1. Why is Simeon's inheritance not found on Bible maps that show tribal lands?
  2. In which tribal territory will the Battle of Armageddon take place?
  3. Name some noteworthy events that later took place in the territory of the tribe of Asher.
  4. Timnath Serah. Whose portion was this?
  5. Which three cities were burned in the conquest?

Answers

  1. Simeon's inheritance was within the inheritance of the tribe of Judah.
  2. In Issachar's territory, which includes the Plain of Jezreel, where the final battle will take place. See Revelation 16.
  3. Elijah would defeat the prophets of Baal on Mt. Carmel. The godly prophetess Anna was from the tribe of Asher.
  4. Joshua's.
  5. Jericho, Ai and Hazor.

Discuss/Consider

  1. Just as God sovereignly divided the portion of the land to the different tribes, so God sovereignly distributes the different gifts and ministries among His people today. Read 1 Corinthians 12:4-7 and 1 Peter 4:10. Have you identified your gift? Are you a good steward of your gift? Are you using your gift for the profit of other believers? Are you using your gift to glorify God?
  2. Believers are the Lord's portion, just as Joshua's inheritance was an abundant portion. What does this mean spiritually? Refer to Ephesians 1:18.

Challenge

  1. Joshua was a man of noble spirit, a godly man who practiced self-denial. Do you practice self-denial?
