 “Now then, please swear to me by the Lord that you will show kindness to my family because I have shown kindness to you. Give me a sure sign that you will spare the lives of my father and mother, my brothers and sisters, and all who belong to them—and that you will save us from death.”-Joshua 2:12-13.

Instead of exposed the danger of the two spies sent by Joshua, Rehab hid them on the roof of her home under piles of flex. She deceived the search officials from the king and sent them out of the city to catch these spies in the wrong direction.

“I know that the Lord has given you this land, and the terror of you has fallen on us… For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorite…-Joshua 2:9-10

Rehab co-operated with the spies sent by Joshua to secure her salvation and the salvation of her parents, sibling, and their beloved because she recognized that the fate of Jericho City was unavoidable. The God of Israel was the only true and mighty God who took the Israel out of Egypt through miracles and wonders.  The God of Israel defeated all the Egyptian gods by sending ten plagues to Egypt.  He caused the Red Sea to split and dried up the seabed so that the Israel could walk on it.  He drowned the elite arm force of Pharaoh, and overwhelmed their chariots in the sudden onrush of water as soon as the Israel reached the other side of the dry land.  Israel did not know how to fight war nor did they have any war weapon other than some farm equipment; nevertheless they captured all the Amorite cities and killed Sihon and Og the two Amorite kings-Number 21:21-35.

Sewing the seed of the gospel may seem discouraging because most of the people we meet reject it.  Some people label us as some superstitious religious fanatics with a narrow mind.  Even some people come to the church regularly; they come only for certain church programs and social events. Rather than just to emphasize about our Lord’s great mercy and forgiveness, we must also continue to warn the people about His coming judgment upon the unbelieving world because He is also the Lord of great justice and He is true to His word-John 3:16.

Why wait until tomorrow?  We don’t know what will happen the next minute; we may die suddenly in an accident or in a coma indefinitely.  Friend, choose Jesus now before the collapse of the Jericho City.  Don’t run away from the Lord and His impending doom and  judgment, don’t hide in the cave or call the mountains and rocks to fall upon you (Revelation 6:16), choose life now and humbly worship Him, confess your sins and ask Him for forgiveness.

Lord, my heart will continue to magnify your great mercy and my mouth will glorify you great work so that people will know and remember that You alone are the true God of all the universes and our live are in Your hand….
