        Focus Verses: Joshua 4:20-22,24
20 And Joshua set up at Gilgal the twelve stones they had taken out of the Jordan. 21 He said to the Israelites, "In the future when your descendants ask their fathers, 'What do these stones mean?' 22 tell them, 'Israel crossed the Jordan on dry ground.' - - - 24 He did this so that all the peoples of the earth might know that the hand of the LORD is powerful and so that you might always fear the LORD your God."

  Joshua was confused for how to cross the river. Thousands of questions rised in his mind. Then he asked to god “How do we cross the river” then god said “Send 12 men with the priests first, carrying my arc. You will find the water will stop flowing as the priest set their feet in the river. Then all of you can cross the river in safety. The next day Joshua gathered all the people together at one place and told them what the lord had said to him.

       “Now select the 12 men and lets begin” said Joshua soon water stopped flowing as the priests carrying the arc of god aid their feet in the river. It’s stopped way up the river held by the hand of god. Down the river it emptied into sea. Until all the people had passed safely the priest stood in the middle of the river bed holding the arc of god. Then the lord said to Joshua “tell the twelve men that had been selected to take each one a stone from the river bed by where the priests are standing and carry them out and pile them at your camp tonight.” Joshua called the twelve men and told them what the lord had said to him.

         Then each one picked up a stone and carried it on their shoulders after everyone had passed safely, they watched the river began flowing as usual. As the priest carrying the arc came up from the river. Joshua as said by the god he constructed the monument from the twelve stones at their camp that night. He said “we will make a monument with these stones so that in future when you are asked what this monument is, you can say “ It is a reminder that the river Jordan stopped flowing, when the arc of god passed” You can tell them, How the lord dried up the river, so we could pa safely. That is like when the god dried up the red sea many years ago.
