THE FALL OF JERICHO WALL
THE FALL OF JERICHO WALL BIBLE STUDY ON THE FALL OF JERICHO WALL BIBLE EVENT WITH THE FALL OF JERICHO WALL BIBLE MESSAGE
Good day to you, and welcome back to Daily
Bread and our study of the book of Joshua. This story may be
familiar to you. It was a remarkable event that happened as Joshua led
the children of Israel in possessing the Promised Land.
The city of Jericho was closed up tight for fear
of the children of Israel. Let me explain. The city (as many cities did
back then) had a wall around it, with gates at the "entry" of the city,
so, with Israel's presence so near, nobody dared leave or enter the
The Lord told Joshua that he had given Jericho
into his hand, meaning, the Lord had given Joshua the power to defeat

STORY EXPLANATION AND THE FALL OF JERICHO WALL BIBLE STORY SUMMARY
So God explained to Joshua the means by which the
children of Israel should possess this city, and there can be no doubt
that divine intervention was the only way this could have transpired.
Decide for yourself:
Each day, for six days, the Ark of the Lord was
carried once around the city, then back to the camp. Seven priests
sounding seven trumpets went ahead of the Ark and the army of Israel
went ahead of the priests, with the rear guard following behind the Ark.
Except for the priests, continually sounding the trumpets, the rest of
the precession was in complete silence as they were commanded not to
speak a word until Joshua gave the order.
On the seventh day, beginning at dawn, they
circled the city in the same manner, seven times, and at the seventh
time, Joshua ordered the people, Shout, because the Lord has given you
the city, and the city and all that is in it shall be accursed to the
Lord, except Rahab and all that are in her house, because she protected
the spies that we sent. Don't take anything out of the city or you will
bring a curse upon yourself as well as the camp of Israel. But all the
silver and gold and vessels of brass and iron are Holy to the Lord and
they will be put in the treasury of the Lord.
So the city of Jericho was surrounded by the army
of Israel and when they all shouted with the trumpets, the wall of the
city fell down flat without even being touched. Every man forged
straight ahead of him into the city and totally destroyed all that was
alive inside, except for Rahab and her family and all she owned. They
brought her out of the city, outside of the camp of Israel and burned
all the city, leaving only the silver and gold and vessels of brass and

WALL BIBLE STORY DISCUSSION
Joshua gave strict orders, saying, Cursed be the
man, in the Lord's eyes, who rebuilds Jericho. He will lay the
foundation in the time of his firstborn and in his youngest son he will
set up the gates of it. You can read about the fulfillment of this
prophecy spoken by Joshua in
1 Kings 16:34.
So, as you can plainly see, the hand of the Lord
was with Joshua, and he became well known throughout the whole country.
