    Hello Negandjo. I don't know the answer to the question you have given, but if I might make an assumption. Are you referring to the two men that Joshua sent to spy out Jericho and these men arrived at the house of Rahab, the harlot?

    If that is your question (from Joshua 2:1), then it was Joshua who took the initiative to send out the spies, based upon what the LORD had commanded him to do (in Joshua 1:2). I don't think that Joshua knew about Rahab, as nothing was known about this city or the new territory they were about to enter & conquer. And the two spies themselves, may not even have known much about Rahab. We can only guess about this; my thought is that Rahab probably ran some sort of inn, as well as being a woman of ill repute (or, maybe she once was such a person, but the stigma stuck with her & attached to her name). So the two spies probably took whatever accommodation they could easily get - it just happened to belong to Rahab & God had planned this & subsequently used Rahab to help Joshua & Israel overcome the city. And after the city was razed to the ground & all living were killed, Rahab & her family members were spared as promised & taken out to live with God's people ( Joshua 6:23,25). I hope that's what you were looking for. If not, please let us know.

    Hi Texsis. He is partly correct in what he said, but more accurately, it should be written, 'The Bible is, in part, about the history of Israel, the people chosen by God, through whom God's blessings would come; that all the world should know the One & True Living God, Who would one day send His Son to be the Redeemer for Israel & the World.' The Torah had an immediate benefit only to Israel, for it was given to them to learn from & obey. Had they been true to God, they would have been used by God as a mighty witness to the World. But they failed Him, disobeying Him & taking on the sins & corruptions of the Gentiles, thus falling into the same condemnation.

    God may not have "dealt with any other nations" as He did with His people Israel, but the nations stood condemned for their sins & idolatry just as Israel suffered under God's Hand when they despised Him. The nations may not have known anything about Israel's God, but the Bible in its fullness must have a very real bearing to the Gentiles as their history is also intertwined within Israel's history.

    From Adam & Eve right up to Abraham & Isaac, Israel was not a people or nation. Gentiles too have an heritage to Adam even though not much is given after the Flood when the descendants of Ham & Japheth spread out into the world. But we have the mention of Melchizedek ( Genesis 14:18-20), Hagar ( Genesis 16:1-3), Rahab ( Joshua 6:22-25), Ruth (Ruth chapter 2), the repentance of the City of Nineveh ( Jonah 3:5-10). All these in the OT show that Gentiles were still in God's Mind & to be used of Him.

    And Hosea 2:23, "...I will have mercy upon her that had not obtained mercy; and I will say to them which were not my people, Thou art my people; and they shall say, Thou art my God", to this verse the Apostle Peter refers in 1 Peter 2:10. The Church, composed of Jew & Gentile believers were planned for in the Old Testament & realized in the NT Church & the coming of the Holy Spirit to make her God's special possession.

    Chris The clear words or information to believers your speaking about is revelation or revealed knowledge which cannot be known by the 5 senses it is not thinking things through it is not analytical it is God giving specific instruction or guidance as what to say or act or do in a specific situation. The example that comes to mind when Joshua got to Jericho he was told by God he would take it over that was prophetic now the carrying out of how. Joshua 6-1-21 the rest of the revelation to be carried out is the details trumpets the marching and the big one everyone obeying what Joshua was being told. I guarantee you if he wouldn't have done what he was told or the people would not have listened no Go. When Naaman was told by the prophet to go dip in Jordan 7 times revealed knowledge who to go where to go why to go what to do and what will happen and I'll guarantee you if he would have dipped six times no healing. There is no difference in our day and time it is Gods Solution to a problem making known to the senses man by his spirit in us. To me this is one of the most misunderstood things in christianity because I've heard to many people tell me God told them this or that and biblically made no sense and with the true God two scriptures come to mind. James 1:17 and 3:17 God Bless

    Joshua 7, the "accursed thing" was the disobedience of God's commandment and the plunder stolen by Achan. Achan had taken plunder for himself which had been forbidden when the Israelites conquered Jericho. He had taken a beautiful cloak, silver and gold for himself and buried it in his tent. This was in direct opposition to God's commandment. "The city shall be under the ban, it and all that is in it belongs to the LORD " Joshua 6:17. God demands total obedience to his commands.

    That's the short of it.

    The very station in life that your friend finds demeaning is rather a great honor and a gift from God.

    From the beginning, man was created to work for God ( Genesis 2:15). The woman was then specially created as the help most suitable to accomplish that purpose ( Genesis 2:20-25).

    The Lord's value system is quite opposite what the world judges worthwhile. If your friend knows the forgiveness and redemption gained by Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross and his resurrection from the dead, then she has an eternal purpose and reward in the perfect will of God. ( 1 Corinthians 15:58, 1 Peter 3)

    Being an excellent mother carries a far greater weight of glory and influence than any of the vain achievements or self promotion touted in this world's marketplace. ( Proverbs 31:10-31)

    The Bible has many accounts of women who by faith achieved great things for the Lord, including:

    Sara: Hebrews 11:11-12

    Rebekah: Genesis 24-27

    Leah and Rachel: Genesis 29-

    Shiphrah and Puah: Exodus 1:15-21

    Moses' mother and sister Miriam: Exodus 2

    Rahab: Joshua 2, Joshua 6

    Deborah: Judges 4

    Jael: Judges 4

    Naomi and Ruth: Ruth 1-4

    Hannah: 1 Samuel 1-2

    Esther: Esther 1-10

    Elisabeth: Luke 1

    Mary: Matthew 1-

    Martha and Mary: Luke 10, John 11

    The faithful women at the crucifixion of Jesus after the disciples fled: Matthew 27:55-56

    Mary Magdalene: Mark 16, John 20 - (The very first person to meet the risen Lord Jesus Christ),

    along with many other notable followers in the early church.

    Kjv Joshua 6 :1 what did God tell the people not to take from Jericho
  • Bryan Chua on 2 Kings 2
    Yet, now that he has replaced Elijah, the people still approach him in good faith, requesting his help. So the first thing he does is remove a curse from the waters of Jericho, waters that kill and poison the land. And this water was cursed by God himself, through Joshua when he cursed those that would rebuild Jericho ( Joshua 6: 26). So this shows God is willing to forgive and bring salvation through Elisha.

    Think the answer can be found in Joshua 6:22-23. The army saw the cord located and saved her and her family
  • Evangelist Joseph Adeoye on Joshua 6
    In my own opinion Joshua 6 and the wall of Jericho can be taken to be a person that knows Jesus is truly the son of God and the saviour but he refuses to allow Jesus Christ to take control and take dominion until he was one day meet up with the fire of holy spirit and the harden wall in the person, is brought down flat angels in heaven are happy.

  • Ayodele olorunfemi on Psalms 66
    It a nice thing to praise God, through it we will have many benefit, giving thanks to God. In the book of Acts 16:20-21, when Paul and Silas praise God, God delivered them. In Joshua 6:20, the children of Israel praised God, and the wall of Jericho fell down, we should praise God all the time. GOD BLESS US ALL.
