Joshua at Jericho



The judgement of God
results from the sin of man
as the Lord's righteous rule
always is seen to stand

The fear of God
is the right response to God's law
so as Joshua obeys God's voice
The walls of Jericho become like straw

The love of God
perfectly casts out fear
as Rahab the prostitute
is mercifully given the all clear

The wisdom of God
is always the correct counsel
as Joshua realised at Jericho
when it leads us to God's perfect will

The Glory of God
was seen here in delivering Jericho
into the hands of Joshua
so to strike satin a defeated foe
