Joshua in Hebrew is Jesus in Greek! That is the man whom Branham was forerunning, simple and clear! He pointed us to the man whom He was forerunning! Joshua means Jehovah-saviour and that is no one else but Jesus Christ! It’s nearing the time to be given Joshua, in Hebrew, means Saviour, and represents the promised end-time leader to take the Church over.
Now, by whose ministry did the Old Testament church cross Jordan? The Joshua who took over from Moses was only a shadow of the true Joshua! So, as Joshua who took over from Moses led the church across Jordan, we had finally a true Joshua who led the whole Old Testament church of true believers across the real Jordan! Who was that man? Do you know his name? Do you know his father's name? The man who opened the way for the whole Old Testament church, as a pure church of believers, without even one Achan among them, across the true Jordan, who was he? Can you name him?
Oh, please! Has it escaped your mind? He is there before your very eyes! He is the man whom John the Baptism foreran!!! That is the Joshua by whom all the true believers of the Old Testament church crossed Jordan. Are you wondering where He did it? Please, enlarge your heart in the scriptures!
Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost. And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many.
By his death on the cross, Jordan, which is the river of death was parted into two, and by that a way was made by which the saints passed over into the promised land, the true promised land which Abraham sought after!
Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.
It is Joshua (Jesus) who overcame death and opened the way for the resurrection of the Old Testament church; He is the same one who comes after the second forerunner to open the way through Jordan again, for the New Testament church to pass over. Joshua is simply Jehovah-saviour who is Jesus Christ! Simple and clear! Every promise has a scripture behind it, so even this one has it.
