The Destruction of Jericho

Joshua 6:1-5, NKJV
1 Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in.
2 And the LORD said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor.
3 You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go all around the city once. This you shall do six days.
4 And 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.
5 It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that 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.”

  • Simple instructions

  • Clear plan.

  • The human victory factor: OBEDIENCE
For the Christian, we will not / cannot have victory without obedience.

This scripture (provided previously in the NIV) and note shared by Pastor Nate Brock of Mulberry Baptist Church in Sumter, SC. It is a familiar passage that resonate volumes today.
