jericho-walls-marchThe Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” Ps 37:23 (KJV) Let’s go back to the Israelite’s when there command from God was “arise, go over the Jordan, you and all this people,…….every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you…. And I will not leave you nor forsake you. Be strong and of good courage” Joshua 1:1-9 (NKJV)

My friends, to receive we must not be afraid but be strong and of good courage.” “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2 Tim 1:7 (NKJV) So the only thing that stood between the multitude and their final destination of God’s promises was the High walls of Jericho. But God’s plan always was to fight this battle for them. All they had to do was believe in the promises of God.

And the Lord said unto Joshua, “See! I have given Jericho into your hand,” Joshua 6:1 (NKJV) Did you notice, God did not say go out and fight for thejericho_battle promise land. He told Joshua I have given unto thine hand a victory that will lead you into the promise land. My friends God’s promises did not change after forty years only their faith. Six days they marched around the walls once, and on the seventh day they march around seven times and the walls fell.

Forty years to realized “that the battle all along, was the Lord’s” Yes my friends, the battle is the Lords but it must be all about His glory and honor. Remember heaven, then Calvary, is where the battle was originally fought and Christ was the victor for mankind each time. “I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Revelation 1:18 (NIV)

In addition, those words tell us, Christ has the power and jurisdiction over death. And His resurrection from the grave is our assurance if we are alive or have died in Christ if we believe and not as others who have no hope, Salvation and life eternal is ours. Not I will think about it, or maybe if your mother or father decides for you.

vicYes my friends, the plan for us to overcome has been established, which gives us full assurance that the steep wall of our life can never stop us from obtaining victory for God has already given it “unto thine hand.” But we must “be strong and of good courage” “For God has not given us a spirit of fear.” But the desires of our heart must be the desires of God, and that can only happen when Christ lives in us which should always give us a reason to praise His name.

The great controversy between good and evil is still undecided by many that we must warn that victory is theirs if they believe. So move out my friends into all the world and “praise God from whom all blessings flow” and let them know all who believe and endure to the end, Jesus saves. So today, my friends, shout the praises of God In the midst of that High wall that stands in front of us as we move into the final season of this life’s history. And soon the Bridegroom will come “And behold, I am coming quickly, to give every man and woman according as their work shall be.. Rev 22:12 (KJV)


Every excuse we may give as the reason we cannot serve Christ, was challenged and answered at Calvary.
