At the sound of the trumpets, Joshua told the people to shout, as God had commanded them to do.

God said to Joshua: "Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go. But Rahab had faith in God. She told the spies: "I know that the Lord has given you this land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you. We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt Rahab made the spies swear an oath.
She promised not to give their plans away, and in return, they vowed to spare Rahab and her family when the battle of Jericho began.
She was to tie a scarlet cord in her window as a sign of their protection. Meanwhile, the Israelite people continued to move into Canaan. God commanded Joshua to have the priests carry the Ark of the Covenant into the center of the Jordan River , which was at flood stage. As soon as they stepped into the river, the water stopped flowing.
It piled up in heaps upstream and downstream, so the people could cross on dry ground. God performed a miracle for Joshua, just as he had done for Moses, by parting the Red Sea. A Strange Miracle God had a strange plan for the battle of Jericho. He told Joshua to have the armed men march around the city once each day, for six days.
The priests were to carry the ark, blowing trumpets, but the soldiers were to keep silent. On the seventh day, the assembly marched around the walls of Jericho seven times. The Israelite army rushed in and conquered the city. Only Rahab and her family were spared. Lessons From the Battle of Jericho Story Joshua felt unqualified for the monumental task of taking over for Moses, but God promised to be with him every step of the way, just as he had been for Moses. This same God is with us today, protecting and guiding us.
Rahab, the prostitute, made the right choice. She went with God, instead of the evil people of Jericho. Joshua spared Rahab and her family in the battle of Jericho. At every turn, Joshua did exactly as he was told and the Israelites prospered under his leadership. An ongoing theme in the Old Testament is that when the Jews obeyed God, they did well. When they disobeyed, the consequences were bad. The same is true for us today. Joshua is an excellent example of humility before God.
Joshua also drew from the past, remembering the impossible deeds God had accomplished through Moses. Do you trust God with your life?
Have you forgotten how he brought you through past troubles? God has not changed and he never will. He promises to be with you wherever you go.
