The Fall of Jericho

 The fall of Jericho
Joshua 6 Now Jericho was straightly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. 2 And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valor. 3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus, shalt thou does six days? 4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. 5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall flat, [1] and the people shall ascend every man straight before him.
(What God has told me to the churchJ there are many things that I have to say to you? But you are not mature enough for me to say. For you cannot digest my Words yet. It would only confuse you. You still need to grow up in your salvation. There are many things you need to do. You continue to fight your flesh. Self-control. Restraints. A means or device for restraining, as a harness for the mouth and flesh. The act of restraining, holding back, controlling.  The state of knowing when to shut down and controlling yourself when it comes to the things of this world. There are times when you are in need of a restraint jacket. This is why Israel could not go around Jericho until the seven day they were not ready for the battle because of self-control. Although they knew, they won the battle they could not restrain themselves. I the Lord could not trust them with those things inside the wall. It was too tempting for them. As it is for you. I cannot trust you for you covet your neighbor's goods. Therefore, what good are you to me? You say you love me yet you desire those things that do not belong to you. You walk in your neighbors shoes that do not fit. You have to learn to restrain yourself, or I will come and put you in a strait jacket. I the Lord will put a measure or condition that keeps you in something under control within limits that are less that I gave to you. Learn of me for my yoke is easy and my burdens are light.
 God gives Joshua seven days of instructions to defeat their first battle which was Jericho.  Six days he gives Joshua telling him to give the priest instructions to blow the trumpet once a day for six days with the Ark of the Covenant and March around the wall of Jericho.
Once a day. While the children of Israel are to be quite and to stay in their position be still until further instruction from the Joshua. Indeed, this would give the children of Israel, discipline. The children of Israel were so, rebellious and filled with apathy and darkness; God wanted to remind The Israelites that Light overpower darkness. He is light and in Him there is no darkness. Let there be is powerful words. "The First Day is the first recorded Words of God" "Let there be light" (Genesis 1:3). The sun was already shining brightly, but God made the earth's thick new atmosphere allow diffuse light to penetrate to the surface. And so it was that the light was made separate from darkness. The first day of earth's creation was the first "day" as someone on earth's surface would experience a period of opaque light, and a period of darkness. (Genesis 1:3-5) Joshua tells the priest the next day to go and march around the wall the second day. And so the priest with the ark did and hewed the horn once. There had to be a separation of the Israelites. Light from darkness in them. They were hot and cold, and some may have been lukewarm. A day

The Second Day The separation of the waters. There was yet God's "hovering over the Israelites remains molten right to the present day. Joshua sends the priest out to Jericho with the Ark of the Covenant.
The Third Day and blows the horn each day. Giving those behind the wall no surprise to God for He is full of mercy and His compassion failed not. He desires all come to repentance. However, they would not. Just as He did in Sodom and Gomorrah. None would come they would rather die than to come to God. Consequently, they died in their sin, whether than surrender to the     God of love. Some people would rather wallow in sin and have satisfaction in their addictive behavior than to change their appetite. While the people of Israel are quite each day. The first appearance of a hot and dry day, is the illumination and the smoke then putting your feet to the ground.  When the evening comes cooling of the surface set. Motion that takes the process that is a natural contraction takes place. On one hand it's uplifting, the earth crust continues to cool.  The shallow ground, Often of earthenware or porcelain, from which processes were affecting the structure of the earth. The dust changed from smooth one-level molten "cue ball" to a planet with an irregular surface with ocean basins and continental landmasses. With dry ground available, the first plants were made to grow in great abundance during this period.
         The Fourth Day With the sky now clear, the sun, moon and stars were dependable visible. They were to "serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years." The sun marked the day (sunset to sunset), the moon the month (new moon to new moon), and the stars the seasons (constellations are seen in particular seasons. "Orion" is visible in winter in the northern hemisphere, which is summer in the southern hemisphere. (Genesis 1:14-19) The Fifth Day Great numbers of birds and sea creatures. God blessed them and said, "Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the water in the seas, and let the birds increase on the earth."
 (Genesis 1:20-23) (Genesis 1:9-13)I do believe that God was positioning the people and preparing them for the war that was coming knowing they were not prepared for what was coming. We have to remember for five days God sent the priest in first with the Ark of covenant blowing the horn once knowing that they were undefeatable, Knowing, that the battle was already won. It was something the people was on the side of them that was in them that need to come out. I assure this is why many did not enter into the promise land. I assume this is why many did die before getting to the place of promise and fell into pride and died in disobedience. I believe there was still some things in many that God knew that need to come out.
That is why many was not trusted to go inside of the wall of Jericho. God did not believe some of the people because of the Gold and Silver that some put to death for stealing. It's not that God did not want to give it to them they were not quality to have it. For one, their hearts was not clean. There were not justify; they were not the righteousness of God. Jesus did not die for their sins as of yet. Abraham did not come yet. Rahab was the first league to Jesus. There were consider a stiff neck disobedient people. However, it was inside of Jericho. Joshua sent the priest out with the Ark of the Covenant on

The Sixth Day Vast numbers of land animals. Man. From the man, the woman (humans today are just now discovering how to alter genetically fertilized embryos, and even to create one person from the tissue of another - known as "cloning").
Seven But on the seventh day everybody went in, and the wall came tumbling down. And a shout and praise went forth. On the seventh day. If we can remember that it took God to create the world six days and on the seven-days He rested. However, the six days were days of labor. And if we can remember the seventh He consecration. The seventh day, no manna appeared. God. The unique Word from the Lord for this seventh-day journey and its name disclosed to the Israelite people Cease the day of rest and abstention from work as commanded by God. Shabbat involves two interrelated commandments: to remember   Israel learned that the seventh day was "a Shabbat of the Lord."
Their honor by desisting from their daily food-gathering labor. It was also this day that they all the people walk around Jericho seven times. (Genesis 1:24-31) The Seventh Day the Sabbath Day. “The Seventh-day God had finished the work. God been doing; so on the seventh day He rested from all His work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy because He rested from all the work of creating that He had done." The day the basis for The Fourth Commandment. (Genesis 2:2-3)  It was on that seventh day that all the people gather and blew the horn and carried the Ark of the Covenant. That day a shout arose and the wall fall it was on that day that they cease the city. Why on the seventh day. What was inside of the city and why was it on the seventh day. God worked six days creating the world on the seventh; he ceased working making the people stop from speaking to keep silent, and they were in fast. Why did God prepare them for what was ahead of them
 Why did not God allow them not to keep any of the gold or silver for themselves? Now there was a reason I figure out that did not make sense to me. I know that God wanted it all. But that did not seem the God I serve. Then I thought of they were not the righteous of God were not brought with a price, and many other factors they did not have the Holy Spirit. They were not to be trusted.  Then I look, inside of Jericho seen  many in Jericho knew of the God of Joshua and heard of the God of Moses and some even seen the miracles line  was royal her lineage was one of Jesus, And she was one who believe.
Many of those, inside the wall did not believe in God. However, many seen the miracles yet still believe their gods.  The choices that they made kept them in deniel. As I look inside the wall. I saw that God spare no man, there was no man who believe in God of Abraham.  No one believes in Joshua God but Rehab. And her family. As I look at the wall, I see a faithless generation. I saw fear and harlotry, idolatry, witchcraft.    Israelites commanded not to go out at all but to remain at home until the seventh day by Joshua. Thus, they learned that the seventh day was "a Shabbat of the Lord," which they must honor by desisting from their daily food-gathering labor. It is not a Holiday. Shabbat is not specifically a day of prayer. Although substantial time usually spent in synagogue praying, prayer is not what distinguishes Shabbat from the rest of the week. Observant Jews pray every day, three times a day.  Shabbat is a day of prayer. Is no more accurate than to say that Shabbat is a day of feasting: we eat every day, but on Shabbat, we eat more elaborately and in a more leisurely fashion. The same can be said of prayer on Shabbat.
    In modern America, we take the five-day workweek much for granted we forget what a radical concept day of rest was in ancient times. The weekly day of rest has no parallel in any other ancient civilization. In ancient times, leisure was for the wealthy and the ruling classes only, never for the serving or laboring classes. Also, the very idea of rest each week was unimaginable. The Greeks thought Jews were lazy because we insisted on having a "holiday" every seventh day.
According to Jewish tradition, the Israelites' 40-yearjourney in the wilderness desert, Joshua decides the first city in Canaan he will conquer is Jericho. God tells him that he will be victorious and instructs Joshua to have his troops march around the walls of the city once a day for six days. The force is to be led by seven priests walking beside the Ark of the Covenant containing the Ten Commandments and blowing rams' horns (shofar out). On the seventh day, the troops are supposed to circle the city seven more times, then the priests are ordered to blow their horns and the soldiers to shout, and the walls of the city, God tells Joshua, will tumble down.

Precisely what happens according to the Bible (Joshua)? While the people were in Jericho, they heard about Israel God. However, they did not want to Summit thought they heard about their God. However here believe and heard and wanted to fellow and asked if they would save her and her family, and they agree as she helps the spies hide so they would not be captured. So, she hid them in her house. And slim them down the wall. Not only was she a leakage to Jesus,   she ask if they would save her whole family. Inside of the wall we see a faithless generation an unbeliever ring of people. Although, God gave them a chance to repent, and believe after they seen all the miracles. They still refuse to not believe in the God of Israel. As God said kill all and destroy everything for all was  wicked. And He did not want nothing to do with the people of that generation.
