Go and stand in the river (Joshua 3:8)

Jesus said the Scriptures talk about himself.

What then does the command to go and stand in the River talk about? Himself, that is, him coming to the Jordan river, getting into it, and being baptized.

This also reminds us of the Lord fulfilling the Israelites wandering in the desert for 40 long years, by going to the desert area fasting 40 days and nights.

Why fasting? Why at the end of the session was he tempted by the devil and with what result?

The Lord's victory then gives us the hope of salvation, for our Lord Jesus came, and won the victory over the devil's temptations. He died on a tree for our sins and rose again for our justification.

Thank and praise be to the Lord!
