After the Giants Fall // The Shadow Nation Rises 03
Summary: This is the third installment in Eric’s series entitled, The Shadow Nation Rises. In this message he explores the thrilling “giant conquering” phase of the Israelite's 40 years of wandering in the wilderness. When the final “fighting man” from the previous generation passes away in the 38th year of The Wandering, the time comes to seize the Land of the Giants. The victory over this heavily populated territory to the east of the Jordan River is extraordinary and wholly God-operated. But, the territory taken is NOT the Land of Promise. It’s merely the territory necessary in order to NOW take the Land of Promise to the west. So, when Reuben and Gad request this territory, on the east side of the Jordan River, as their inheritance, the sparks start flying. How often we do the same. We accept a cheap imitation in our spiritual lives instead of pressing forward into the uncomfortable to lay hold of the real thing.
