The Canaanites will be defeated due to their wickedness. Israel’s righteousness or strength will have nothing to do with it, however, as Israel has frequently disobeyed the Lord through their stubbornness. But God is merciful and gracious. This is just as true in the church today as in ancient Israel. If we repent and be receptive to the love of the Lord, He will redeem us with His infinite love and mercy.
In addition I (the editor of these podcasts) greatly apologize for the unannounced hiatus. I will endeavor to make sure there is a smoother release schedule in the coming months.
