God's bag is full of tricks the Jericho wall is an example of that.Rahab is an Old Testament example of redemptionRahab was a Gentile a woman an "innkeeper" (harlot in Biblical terms)She had three strikes against herYet she had saved the Israelite spies and the nation was forever grateful to herHer motives at the time whether for money lust self-preservation that's not importantGod used her and she found salvation for herself and all her householdRahab became a convert she put away her former life Israel brought her in and treated her like one of their own and she married an Israelite man God is full of surprises and Rahab is one of themYou will find her name in Jesus' family tree (Matt 1:5) right along with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! THE BATTLE OF JERICHO Six days, march once; seventh day, march seven times; then shout. Joshua 6
Week 11 Day 6
1Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in. 2The Lord said to Joshua: "See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor. You shall march and go around the city once. This you shall do six days. 4And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark. But the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. 5When they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and you hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him." 8So it was, when Joshua had spoken to the people, that the seven priests bearing the rams' horns advanced and blew the trumpets, and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them. 9The armed men went before the priests, and the rear guard came after the ark, while the priests continued blowing the trumpets. 10Now Joshua had commanded the people, saying, "You shall not shout or make any noise with your voice until the day I say to you, 'Shout!' Then you shall shout." 11So he had the ark of the Lord circle the city, going around it once. Then they came into the camp and lodged there. 14The second day they marched around the city once and returned to the camp. So they did six days. 15On the seventh day they rose early, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. 16And the seventh time, when the priests blew the trumpets, Joshua said to the people: "Shout, for the Lord has given you the city!" 20When the people shouted with a great shout, the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city. 21They destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox, sheep and donkey, with the sword. 24They burned the city and all that was in it with fire. Only the silver and gold, and the vessels of bronze and iron, they put into the treasury of the house of the Lord. 25And Joshua spared Rahab the harlot, her father's household, and all that she had. She dwells in Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers sent to spy out Jericho. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
