Welcome to Resurrection Life of Jesus Church. We are a Bible centered group of believers who desire to grow in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ without compromise to His Word. We believe, teach and practice all things that Jesus taught and were practiced by the Church in the book of the Acts of the Apostles. Jesus called his disciples to be salt and light. Salt is a preservative but it is also something that adds savor and enjoyment to our daily food. Light is a symbol of truth; it is comforting, penetrating, guiding and exposes darkness. We seek to preserve biblical truth and shed the glorious light of the Gospel in a world that is consumed by darkness.

ABOUT THE VIDEO
As a military commander, Joshua knew a decisive victory over a hardened target would put fear into the Canaanites and so he sent out spies to Jericho. The scouts decided the safest place to lodge was in a whorehouse where they met a harlot who had been visited by the Lord. Rahab knew Jericho was doomed and hid the two men, telling them that fear had fallen on the city, and made them promise to spare the lives of her family.
Crossing a flood swollen river is no easy task and but God wanted to impress upon the people of Israel that Joshua was His man. The Lord magnified Joshua by stopping the flow of water so that the Israelites could safely walk across a dry river bed into the Promised Land.
Then God did something that made no sense when He ordered all the males to be circumcised on the same day. A grown man that is circumcised would take several days to recover. This plan was suicidal because all the fighting men would be recovering from their wounds, giving the Canaanites the opportunity to overrun and kill them all. Joshua obeyed and Jesus met him outside the camp with instructions how to attack and conquer Jericho.
