Now Jericho was strongly fortified because of the Israelites—no one leaving or entering. The LORD said to Joshua, “Look, I have handed Jericho, its king, and its fighting men over to you. March around the city with all the men of war, circling the city one time. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry seven ram’s-horn trumpets in front of the ark. But on the seventh day, march around the city seven times, while the priests blow the trumpets. When there is a prolonged blast of the horn and you hear its sound, have all the people give a mighty shout. Then the city wall will collapse, and the people will advance, each man straight ahead.” — Joshua 6:1-5 <HCSB>

Joshua – Walls of Jericho Summary

Jericho, with its imposing walls, blocked the Children of Israel from possessing their Promised Land. There was no human way to breach the defenses, so God gave Joshua a plan that would require the collective faith of the entire army. Seven days later, Jericho was theirs.

Faith brought the walls down and faith saved the prostitute Rahab who had believed that God would deliver her and her entire family. After she saved Joshua’s spies, they told her to tie a scarlet rope in her window, foreshadowing the blood of Christ. Rahab and her entire family were spared and welcomed into the community.

By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. — Hebrews 11:30-31 <KJV>

Why did the walls of Jericho fall?
Hebrews 11:30 tells us that faith brought those walls down. The Children of Israel marched around Jericho in silence, with only the trumpets sounding each day. As the soldiers marched, their faith grew. While they were silent, they were unable to start murmuring or doubting God’s plan. By the seventh day their faith was alive. They could see the victory and expected it. By the time they circled the city that seventh time, in their hearts they knew the city was theirs. Joshua gave the order to shout and every man let loose a victorious faith-filled shout that brought those walls right down. Faith spoken from the heart will still move any obstacle you’ll ever face in life.

Faith will still move mountains, bring down walls, heal you and remove all obstacles in your path.
