“So the people shouted when the priests blew the trumpets. And it happened when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat. Then the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city,” Joshua 6:20, NKJV.
My child, when I led the Israelites into the Promised Land, I did not avoid Jericho; I took it as My first prize.
The walls of Jericho were massive and thought to be impregnable. But I sent My people to take her first because I wanted them to see My greatness manifested openly before their eyes and the world.
I sent fear and dread upon the people of Jericho. They were behind their great walls, but their hearts were fearful because I was with Israel; the Ark of the Covenant carried My Presence.
Every day that Israel marched in silence around the city, the more anxious the people became inside their walls.
When Israel shouted at My command, I had My Angel Armies knock down the walls flat. However, Israel had to go up into the city and fight street to street to get the victory.
What you see here is an example of what I AM doing in this hour. I have sent My Angel Armies in great numbers to come and work side by side with My Bridal Warriors.
Your obedience to act at My commands is of primary importance. You must be silent until you are in position and given My nod, then you are to speak out what you hear Me whisper in your ear.
The enemy has built many fortifications and set many chaotic schemes into motion. But they shall not prevail against My people and My Angel Armies. You have been created for this season and I have waited patiently for this generation to come to spiritual maturity.
It is time to advance and take the land (spiritual and natural) for your King. There are no more grey areas left for the on-lookers. All must engage in the battle, but you must choose sides.
Jericho is coming down! Be assured of this. I never back down. I never lose when I have drawn My sword. My sword is in My hand, NOW!
Press in, My child. As you go, I will strengthen you and provide for you every step of the way. You carry the Ark of My Presence within your being, so rejoice. All is well. Shalom.
“And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked, and behold, a Man stood opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said to Him, “Are You for us or for our adversaries?” So He said, “No, but as Commander of the army of the Lord I have now come,” Joshua 5:13-14, NKJV.
