The Wall Of Jericho Fell Down Flat.

Key Verse

“So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a reat shout, that the wall fell down flat, …” Joshua 6:20a

Text — Joshua 6:15-21


The story of the wall of Jericho falling down, strongly demonstrates the miraculous power of God. God is always doing wonders in the lives of His people. The famous wall of Jericho was standing in the way of the people of God (the Israelites) from moving forward to possess the promised land. God made the point that the city would not fall by the hands and weapons of the Israelites, but by His intervention alone. The Israelites only needed to obey Him, and when they did, the victory was given to them.

The wall of Jericho represents the obstacles on the ways of believers that keep them out of God’s will. The first and greatest obstacle to deal with is sin. Many blessings are available to be experienced in the “promised land” of the Christian life – but Satan puts up his strong-walled “Jerichos” to keep us out of that promised land. These obstacles could be academic challenges, poverty in the home or sickness. Any test you face is to make you stronger. Do not give in to obstacles, rather press forward and trust God to get you through. Every Jericho wall in your life will fall flat..
