JOSHUA AND THE DESTRUCTION OF JERICHO
Joshua 6:1 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.”
HEBREWS 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.
IN THE OLD TESTAMENT THE LORD JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF INSTRUCTED JOSHUA TO MARCH AROUND THE WALLS OF JERICHO TO BRING IT DOWN WITH A SHOUT? BUT THAT DOESN’T MEAN THIS IS HOW WE DO THINGS IN THE NEW TESTAMENT!
FOR IN THE NEW TESTAMENT WE HAVE NOW RESIDING IN EACH BORN AGAIN SPIRIT FILLED CHRISTIAN THE POWERFUL HOLY SPIRIT WHO RAISED JESUS CHRIST FROM THE DEAD AND HE GUIDES EACH INDIVIDUAL CHRISTIAN THE WAY HE CHOOSES!
SO IT’S VERY DANGEROUS AND ERRONEOUS TO TAKE SOME OLD TESTAMENT EXAMPLE OF DOING THINGS AND BRING IT INTO THE NEW TESTAMENT AS MANY FALSE ONES HAVE DONE AND DO!
John 16:13 However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
14 He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you.
15 All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you
