Gilgal, Joshua's Base

GILGAL became the base camp for Joshua's army in Canaan after they crossed the Jordan. It literally means ROLLING ROLLING. It comes from the SECOND Circumcision experienced with the younger generation who hadn't been circumcised since Israel left Egypt.

There is a second circumcision in our lives as believers. First we see body of sins of flesh removed. Secondly is unbelief and fleshly carnality of fighting flesh and blood rather than the true battle against devils.

And it is a demarcation point where we see the old "generation" of doubt die in our lives... the part of us that we carried into this life out of Egypt, and we mature and also grow to know nothing but the blood of Jesus saves us.

So many believers still doubt their worth before God when in fact Jesus paid it all by his blood, so we cannot improve on ourselves as far as being acceptable to God goes. And when we grasp this truth, we will blow the SEVEN TRUMPETS OF RAMS HORNS. That is, the SEVEN full) HORNS (power) speaks of the full power of Jesus' blood, and not our goodness or works. Doubt comes when we think we're not strong enough top battle the enemy. It's not us and our power anyway! It's FULL POWER IN THE BLOOD! And when we sound forth that faith, and go into all battles from the BASE CAMP of second circumcision, we will win every battle.

GILGAL represents a MINDSET and UNDERSTANDING from which we must go forth and fight the enemy. When UNDERSTAND the power of the blood is all the power we need, and not our own fleshly weak power that makes us doubt, we are marching FROM GIGAL and are guaranteed to win!

Re: Gilgal, Joshua's Base

It's exciting to see how there are parallels between the Red Sea Crossing and the Jordan Crossing.
  • Red Sea was divided/Jordan was divided
  • Rod opens up Red Sea/Ark's mercyseat opens up Jordan
  • Moses met God on holy Ground/Joshua met the Warrior Angel on holy ground
  • Passover with blood on doors frees Israel/Rahab puts red cord in window and is saved

And when they Enter Canaan...
The older generation died.
Second circumcision occurred after Israel was disallowed from conducting Passover since their unbelief at Kadesh Barnea 38 years before, and forbiddance for circumcision of children who thereby bore the reproach of Egyptian uncircumcision until their parents who doubted God could take them into the land died off.
Manna ceased and they ate corn of the land.
The people cannot speak a word and march around WALLS as opposed to ten doubting spies whose words about walls spread doubt throughout the nation.


Blood is indicative in the "RED" Sea, and blood on the mercyseat of the Ark opens up Jordan.

The Jordan was where John the Baptist baptized people into a spiritual death of repentance, with the axe being laid to the root of the tree thereby cutting down our entire old lives. It is the demarcation point between the wilderness and the Promised Land. It's where Jesus' ministry was introduced. It's leaving the wilderness as opposed to leaving Egypt at the Red Sea.

All of this extremely high significance that's found here makes GILGAL a camp of great significance from which we must glean understanding of truths that speak of a base of spiritual maturity from which we fight all our battles.
