God at War – Joshua Study 9

Cary Cox, from Joshua 8:1-29. In this passage we see God sending Israel to take the city of Ai. We see the holy God who has declared war on sin.  When we give ourselves to sin, we are aligning ourselves with something God has promised to destroy. But God has provided a rescue from sin and judgment through Jesus Christ! God will eradicate all evil from his universe, conquer his enemies, rescue his people, and reign forever!
