Many times Moses and Joshua were instructed by God to "take a hill". (Deut. 1:6-7) The reference was always about the fortified city of the enemy. Sometimes the reference to "possess the gates" was used. They obeyed as they were instructed - they went on the offense and attacked the enemy's camp and later they would divide up the spoils. The spoil or spoils is the reward from the battles. The return on their investment in walking with God and moving at His command always yielded increase for the people of God. This was God's design of wealth transfer. If the land I gave you was occupied by somebody or bodies - Go and dislodge the former tenants, evict them. This is taken from the Word of God, not our made up imagination - God had land personally created for His people. God allowed others to live in that land so that the beast would not over populate the area and nobody would be able to live there. But now that His people are ready to live in it - they are commanded to possess it! Wow what an awesome concept.
The people of God gained territory and real-estate for them to have prosperity. The prosperity and increase was GOD'S (Jehovah Jireh) plan all the time. The spoils would be cattle (food). Gold and silver -(money). Clothing and fine linen -Stuff. The "hill" positions of power- exalted. The ministry of Moses was

Child of God get ready to have spoils to divide and share from the battle. You have the VICTORY and will not return empty handed. You will not come home to less, you will return with something to shout about.!! (2Corithians 10:4)

Joshua took over after the death of Moses. Joshua had to be strong in the face of breaking the cycle of wandering around and around. True pioneers must focus on the task at hand and remain consistent and persevere thru the opposition until the victory is attained and accomplished. God personally told Joshua -"be strong, be of good courage, stay in his WORD (law), prosperity and success were guaranteed".
Now how can you fail with that kind of mentorship? You are destined to win. I say to you - "you will not come back empty handed but with great testimonies and trophies shall be your reward".

The Ministry of Moses began and had great thrust until they got stuck with doubters and complainers. The seeds of defeat were sown by the half-hearted and the faithless. Get rid of the haters at every turn if you are going to see victory without defeat. Get rid of the rebellious from your inner-circle and key leadership people.
