  • 1. How to bring the walls of Jericho Down Br.Chris Abraham
  • 2. Canaan
  • 3. Jericho is considered the oldest known inhabited city in the world. Jericho was strong and powerful, with walls all around it. impenetrable, With its walls, Jericho unconquerable, was humanly………… Mission impossible! But for Joshua and the Israelites Jericho must be destroyed.
  • 4. Walls of Jericho
  • 5. No other way to Canaan, the Promised Land. GOD’S PROMISE Canaan JERICHO WALLS PLAN “Land that flowed with milk and honey.” Israel could not retreat. They had no alternative PROVISION except to go forward in victory or suffer death; dying at the hands of the foes or of hunger and thirst.
  • 6. God’s strategy for battle is often strange, defying all conventional wisdom. I Corinthians 1:27 But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are might. 2 Corinthians 4:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. In the war of our souls, where God and Satan battled for our destiny, He did not send millions of angels to march against the demons of darkness but . . . He sent His ONLY Son to a cross on Calvary. Jesus died and bought victory for us with love.

  • 11. The Worship of Faith (Joshua 5: 13-15) The Captain of the Lord’s army replied to Joshua’s query, “Are you for us or against us?” “Neither, I come to take over.” He worshipped God. Take it by heart the reply of Joshua: True faith will worship God even though there is a wall standing between you and God’s purpose for your life. True faith worships because it understands that no problem is too big or too difficult for God to take care of. Faith is not blind to the problem, it sees the problem and God’s presence.
  • 12. Jericho Strategy - God’s War Plan For six days the army would circle the city while the priests blew their ram’s horns. The priests with trumpets went first, then the priests which carried the Ark of the Covenant, then the Army. The only sound would be the sound of the horns, no one could speak. On the seventh day, they would circle the city seven times in the same manner. Then when Joshua gave the signal, they would shout with great shout.
  • 13. 4. By carrying God’s Ark of Covenant 10 commandments Aaron’s Budded Rod Manna in a Gold Pot
  • 14. 5. By Faith in God’s Word God already said to Joshua, “I have given you the city.” Faith is just agreeing with the word of God. There must be times of exuberant faith. There was no wavering or hesitation in that shout. There are no walls of sin strong enough to resist faith’s shout, when God says our shouting time has come.
  • 15. God is not moved by the walls you face, but He is moved by the faith that you put in Him when you face those walls. It’s our faith that touches God’s heart. All through life we will face obstacles of some kind standing in our way of progress. These obstacles often stand between us and God’s best for our lives. We cannot ignore it. We must confront it. We must conquer it to possess the promise. Walking God’s way. The only way to conquer the Jericho's in our lives is God’s way and that is by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, in God’s word, in the blood of cavalry’s cross, the finished work of Jesus.
  • 16. 6. By Obedience
  • 17. rue worship of God involved continued obedience. A thread of obedience runs through this entire story When the Lord met Joshua, he obeyed. When the priests were given strange orders, they obeyed. When the army was told to follow the priests, they obeyed. They obeyed every command of God
