Coded Words for The Fall of Jericho
After Moses died, Joshua became the new leader of the Israelite people. Would God be with Joshua and bless him as He had with Moses? Yes! God had promised to be with Joshua, the new leader (see Joshua chapter 1). The battle of Jericho would be the first test of Joshua’s leadership. But, as it turns out, the battle of Jericho wasn’t much of a battle at all. Indeed, God was faithful to His promise and gave Joshua and the people a great victory. According to Joshua chapter 6, Joshua and the people did what God told them to do and God did the rest. The Israelites merely stood back and watched God bring down the walls of this heavily fortified city that stood at the threshold of the Promised Land.
