3:5   Tomorrow Hashem will perform wonders

Yehoshua instructs the people to sanctify themselves, as Hashem will perform miracles for them. Typically, miracles require a partnership between God and man. Though ultimately Hashem performs the miracle, He expects us to do our part to merit His acting on our behalf. Hence, the Children of Israel need to prepare themselves spiritually and physically, in order to merit the miracles of the parting of the Yarden and the victories in the conquest of the Promised Land. In our own era as well, the partnership between man and Hashem has resulted in the rebirth and flourishing of the State of Israel. As a result of God’s blessings, together with man’s hard work, the desert literally blooms, the economy grows, the army defends and the nation continues to absorb countless immigrants from the four corners of the earth. As in the days of Yehoshua, the fulfillment of these miracles has demanded both spiritual and physical effort by human beings.

    AND JOSHUA SAID TO THE PEOPLE, SANCTIFY YOURSELVES, FOR TOMORROW THE LORD WILL DO WONDERS AMONG YOU.

    Hashem as an plan for all of us . Just like he had a plan for Israel. I pray that all Jews and Gentiles listen to what Hashem has to say and his lead. We all need an heart like Yeshoshua who listen with his heart and understood the physical and spiritual effort by human beings. That why he told the people to be purify so they can receive the bessing from HASHEM. We all need to purify our and physical spiritual effort in this day and time so that we all receive the blessing and promises that Hashem has plan for us all.

  • And will Hashem raise another on which the anointing of Joshua lays for these days? I do pray this will be so. If Israel looks/listens to what the world says it's heart may faint. But with the hearts like Joshua, Hashem will do miracles, there is nothing He cannot and will not do to see His plans for Israel accomplished. May it be soon!
