Joshua 7:14-15 (JDV)

Joshua 7:14 In the morning, present yourselves tribe by tribe. The tribe Yahveh selects is to come forward clan by clan. The clan Yahveh selects is to come forward family by family. The family Yahveh selects is to come forward man by man.
Joshua 7:15 The one who is caught with the things set apart must be burned, along with everything he has, because he has violated Yahveh’s covenant and committed an outrage in Israel.”

loser lottery

I don’t recommend lotteries, because they have a lot of losers, and only one big winner. That is not a good investment strategy. This lottery, however, is different. It was God who would be picking the offender, and it was for the purposes of narrowing the field so that the entire nation did not have to suffer for the sins of Achan.

Hell will be like that. Everyone who goes there will be sent by God, who only punishes those who deserve it.

The bad news is, we are all Achans. Thanks to God’s grace, and Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross, we can avoid destruction. But the day of grace is ending — the day of judgment and permanent destruction is coming. Flee to God in repentance, now. Tomorrow may be lottery day.

Lord, give us the wisdom to accept your grace. We do not want what we deserve.
