About Stonepile Studios

In the Bible, we find the Israelites crossing the Jordan River to inherit the promised land God had sworn to their forefathers: Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. The previous generation had come with Moses to this place before, but had lost the privilege of entering because they would not obey God and they lacked faith. The entire generation, except for two, had been sentenced to die in the desert, wandering for forty years. Now a new nation of adult children and their families had come with Joshua to the bank of the same river and crossed to the other side.

The Lord gave Joshua specific instructions:

“Choose 12 men from among the people. Choose one from each tribe. Tell them to get 12 stones from the middle of the river. They must pick them up from right where the priests stood. They must carry the stones over with all of you. And they must put them down at the place where you will stay tonight.” (Joshua 4:2-3 NIRV)

The twelve men did as Joshua requested and he piled the stones in their camp that night at Gilgal on the eastern border of Jericho. Then Joshua spoke to the people of Israel and said,

“In days to come, your children after you will ask their parents, ‘What do these stones mean?’ The parents must tell them, ‘Israel went across the Jordan River on dry ground.’ The Lord your God dried up the Jordan for you until you had gone across it. He did to the Jordan River the same thing he had done to the Red Sea. He dried up the Red Sea ahead of us until we had gone across it. He did it so that all the nations on earth would know that he is powerful. He did it so that you would always have respect for the Lord your God.” (Joshua 4:21-24 NIRV)

Stonepile Studios is committed to the next generation of believers. It is a place for equipping, empowering, remembering and retelling, generation to generation, so that all will know what the Lord has done—that He is powerful and worthy of our respect.
