Bible Cities (2)

Jericho was a city that had a wall around it. God wanted Joshua and the Israelites to capture and destroy the city.
God told Joshua (verse 2), “Look, I will let you defeat the city of Jericho. You will defeat the king and all the fighting men in the city.” The Israelites obeyed God and marched around the wall of Jericho once a day for six days. On the seventh day, they marched around the city seven times. Then the priests blew trumpets, and the people shouted.
Verse 20b tells us what happened next. “The walls fell down and the people ran straight into the city. So the people of Israel defeated that city.” Wow! God caused the strong walls of the city to fall down. Then the Israelites easily defeated the people in Jericho.
God told Joshua and the Israelites that the walls would fall down. And it happened just like God said. God always does what He says He will do. You can always depend on God. He will never let you down. Trust Him today!
