“A Sure Word of Prophecy”

Just finished listening to Chuck Missler’s explanation of “the sure word of prophesy” (2 Peter 1:19) which echoes and magnifies the section on the odds of 8 prophecies coming true in Christ Jesus which I read of in Josh Macdowell’s “More Than a Carpenter”, the book our friend Laurie Matisse gave us back in 1984. All I have to say is Wow! Listening to the late Chuck Missler is like drinking out of a Biblical firehose. It’s a lot, so I took notes, but he speaks fast, so I just intently listened in on the journey he leads us on. He certainly knows the word well and exhibits a formidable mind and defended the Biblical faith with excellence.

Elizabeth and I were astounded how many items he speaks of confirm the very Scriptures we are reading this week, e.g., the daughters of Zelophehad (Hebrew) in Joshua 17:3-6).

Although wikipedia is a site with a dubious reputation at times, here’s a little quick background.


“The Daughters of Zelophehad (Hebrew: בְּנוֹת צְלָפְחָד‎) were five sisters – Mahlah, Noa, Hoglah, Milcah, and Tirzah – mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, (Numbers 27:1-11) who lived at the end of the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt as they prepared to enter the Promised Land and who raised before the Israelite community the case of a woman’s right and obligation to inherit property in the absence of a male heir in the family. Zelophehad (meaning “dark shadow”), a man of the Tribe of Manasseh, had five daughters but no sons, and therefore no male heirs.[1]”

Here’s the link to Chuck Missler’s lecture on the “the more sure word of prophecy.” I think this will be of assistance in understanding the nature of prophesy as it appears throughout our readings this year. You will notice prophecies are listed as they appear in the readings on the right side of the reading calendar. We suggest you print it out for your convenience and keep it by your Bible to remind you of where we are in the journey. Don’t be distracted, but discipline oneself and create a time and place where you read daily. If you already have that discipline established, congratulations! Please let us know if you have printed out the schedule in the comments below. All the videos we speak of are not intended to distract you from your daily reading nor study of the Word. They are merely supplementary resources.

Joshua 16 & 17

As we read Genesis 9:24-27 today notice Noah’s curse of Canaan where he says, “So he (Noah) awoke from his wine and knew what his younger son (Canaan, the son of Ham) had done to him. Then he said: “Cursed be Canaan, a servant of servants he shall be to his brethren. And he said: Blessed be the LORD the God of Shem and may Canaan be his servant. May God enlarge Japheth and may he dwell in the tents of Shem and may Canaan be his servant.”

And in Joshua 16:10, notice the binding fulfillment of this curse many centuries later. “And they did not drive out the Canaanites who dwelt in Gezer, but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites to this day and have become forced laborers.” In the King James version it is even clearer as it says, “And they drove not out the Canaanites that dwelt in Gezer, but the Canaanites dwell among the Ephraimites unto this day, and serve under tribute.” The term “serve under tribute” is particularly descriptive of Noah’s curse. A tribute is a payment required from people who are under the rule of another. Such was the case for Israel when they were under the rule of Babylon and other empires.

The Book of Joshua was written in diary form covering the years 1415 B.C. to 1389 B.C. Genesis covers 2165 B.C. to 1800 B.C. Note the over 400 year span between the two books, but how perfectly intertwined are the two, Scripture verifying Scripture wherein the Curse of Noah spoken to Canaan are fulfilled in the Book of Joshua over 4 centuries later. And even then the time of Noah preceded it being spoken of in the Book of Genesis. Is that clear to you?

Here is Alexander Scourby’s reading of today’s Scripture reading of Joshua 16.

Also notice in Joshua 17:13 again the forced labor of the Canaanites.
