Summary: CALEB - THE MAN OF FAITH

Joshua 14 v 6 - 15 CALEB - THE MAN OF FAITH

I THE CLAIM OF FAITH 6 Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.

a. DIVINE INFALLIBLITY Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses

I Kings 8:56 Blessed be the LORD, that hath given rest unto his people Israel, according to all that he promised: there hath not failed one word of all his good promise, which he promised by the hand of Moses his servant.

b. DIVINE ABILITY Romans 4:21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.

c. DIVINE IMMUTABILITY concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.(40 years ago)

II THE CONSECRATION OF FAITH 8 but I wholly followed the LORD my God.

a. CONSECRATION IS REQUIRED

Exodus 32:29 For Moses had said, Consecrate yourselves to day to the LORD, even every man upon his son, and upon his brother; that he may bestow upon you a blessing this day.

b. CONSECRATION IS RECORDED 9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.

c. CONSECRATION IS REWARDED

John 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.

III THE CONFESSION OF FAITH 10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years,

a. HIS CONVICTION

II Timothy 1:12 For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.

b. HIS CONTINUANCE 11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.

a) He knew God’s purpose - 9 And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.

b) He knew God’s promise - 10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses,

c)` He knew God’s presence - 12 Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.

d) He knew God’s power. 11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.

c. HIS CONTENTION 12 Now therefore give me this mountain,

IV THE COURAGE OF FAITH 11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in.12 Now therefore give me this mountain,

V THE COMPANY OF FAITH 12 if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.

Matthew 28:20 and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

VI THE CONFIDENCE OF FAITH 12 if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said.

Deut 7:17 If thou shalt say in thine heart, These nations are more than I; how can I dispossess them? 18 Thou shalt not be afraid of them: but shalt well remember what the LORD thy God did unto Pharaoh, and unto all Egypt;

Daniel 11:32 And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.

VII THE COMPENSATION OF FAITH 13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance. 14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.
