There are a number of occasions in the Bible where God uses very strange methods, from a human perspective, to accomplish His purposes. The battle of Jericho is one of those times. This artwork recounts how God delivered the people of Jericho into the Israelites’ hands. As per God’s instructions, the nation marched around the enemy city for one week. On the seventh day, the priests blew their trumpets and the people gave out a loud shout and the walls of Jericho collapsed, allowing the Israelites to take the city. The only inhabitants of Jericho who were saved were those in Rahab’s house, which was known to the Israelites by the scarlet cord tied from her window. She had protected the men who came to spy on the land prior to the Israelites’ invasion.
See the book of Joshua, chapters 4-6, for the whole story.
I hope that this image will be a reminder to you of the truth of God’s Word, His call for personal bravery in His cause, and His mighty hand in delivering His people.
