What book was Joshua talking about?

Psalm 1 and 19 and 119 among other passages say the same thing!!  What do Christians miss when spending 80+% of time in the back of the book?  … blessings, right understanding, wisdom, obedience, etc.  

Got Torah?

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.
Joshua 1:8 ESV

    Great post as usual Pete! The problem with believers today is they read this and start throwing out all the commandments that cannot be applied today that only apply to the Land, Temple, Priest..etc.. The challenge today is really seeking His Spirit in knowing how He wants us to live according to the simple practical commandments that we can follow in today’s world without just going through the motions. Blessings on you and your family!

    Yes, and because they are unfamiliar with it, they don’t really understand who the Lord is, how He has worked among the nations throughout history, or why the land of Israel is so important today – and who it belongs to! You wouldn’t pick up any other book and begin near the end, because the ending wouldn’t make complete sense. Thank you for your post.

    I cringe when my fellow Christians say it only applies to the Jews or those living in Israel. Better yet we walk in the Spirit not the letter of the Law. etc. etc.

      I answer the Spirit will NEVER lead you contrary to the Law of God. You better test any spirit that leads you away from the Torah because it is nothing more than a spirit of religiosity.

    Still wondering which book Joshua was talking about in the Torah. The Torah is five books. I was literally googling the answer, and your leading statement makes it sound like you know which one. Is the Torah considered one book to Joshua? I am currently re-studying the Bible. Looking at it as it pertains to the Torah. Just read Galatians, and see that some try to put people back in bondage. Still studying. Have been using the Tree of Life version.

      Joshua was either referring to the whole of Torah, bot yet considered five books, or specifically Deuteronomy which Moshe had given last as a retelling of the meat portions of the Torah.

      Either way, Paul could not have been speaking against the Torah as some make his Galatians letter out to be. Every prophet, followed by Yeshua, pointed to the Torah. Paul clearly does in other places, while in Galatians he points to both the misuse of the Torah for salvation and the misuse of oral ‘torah’ to override the written everlasting commands that will not pass away until heaven and earth pass away.
