It’s Always Been That Way!

As I begin our Tuesday post, I’m multitasking – Bible study, laundry and football.   You think I’m kidding.

Perhaps I really will be brief with this one.   🙂

Joshua 2.

Rahab.

Usually referred to as Rahab the harlot.  But oh I like Rahab. She’s one of my favorite Old Testament Saints. She did become a Saint, you know? From women of red to a woman in RED. By faith she was washed in the blood of the LAMB as surely as you and I.

Joshua sent spies to Jericho. They came to Rahab’s house. The king sent his assassins to her house looking for them. She concealed them. And when the henchmen (as Leah Adams called them in our work book) went on their way, Rahab had a word with Joshua’s men.

9. And said to the men, “I know that the LORD has given you the land,

and I made a note in my margin: “how did she know?”

and that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land have melted away before you.  10. For we have heard

And there’s my answer!

Romans 10: (King James Version) 17So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

It’s always been that way — faith comes when we hear the truth and believe.

(10) how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea before you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to the two kings of the Amorites who were beyond the Jordan, to Sihon and Og, whom you utterly destroyed.  11. When we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the LORD your God, He is GOD in heaven above and on earth beneath.

And when she heard and believed their GOD, He became her GOD, and she found much courage.

So will we!

Praying for These

ABBA, You are awesome! Thank You. Thank You. Thank You. For giving us Your Word and for making It live for us and in us! I pray to love Your Scriptures more and more. And I pray that for our Readers too.  We bring our Prayer for These People and our IDOK Troops, collectively, and ask that You individually meet each need in JESUS name. Amen and amen.
