The walls of Jericho came down with song!
Song from the Spirit!
They encamped around those walls for seven days and with a SHOUT, a triumphant SHOUT those walls came down!!
We are (Day 3) post election and I’m here, in my little space in the universe,
Worshipping because I have heard it said, “Worship precedes a miracle!”
And that’s what I want for our Country.
I want our Country to remain whole and free!!
(Regardless of your Candidate winning or mine.)
Let’s all get into the heart of God and Worship Him in song!!
Fear is trying to rob us of JOY.
Trying to weaken us.
But God is faithful.
He will get us through anytime…
🎵🎶🎵Our Father who art in Heaven….(are you singing with me??)
*And how blessed am I that my Parish was hosting our monthly Praise & Worship Evening, last night! It is always good to worship together, so last evening I went to bow before our Lord in a Communal Praise & Worship Adoration with many others in our Community. Our Parish Priest, Father Larry Richards, inspired us all with a wonderful & extremely poignant reflection – which I have shared below. If you too desire to Worship and Adore Him please watch the video in it’s entirety! (I know I plan to often!) But if you simply wish to draw strength upon Father’s reflection from last night, you will find his message at the 19:50 mark in the video.
May the Spirit of Christ minister to your own heart as you listen.
Now Jericho was in a state of siege because of the presence of the Israelites. No one left or entered. And to Joshua the LORD said: I have delivered Jericho, its king, and its warriors into your power. Have all the soldiers circle the city, marching once around it. Do this for six days, with seven priests carrying ram’s horns ahead of the ark. On the seventh day march around the city seven times, and have the priests blow the horns. When they give a long blast on the ram’s horns and you hear the sound of the horn, all the people shall shout aloud. The wall of the city will collapse, and the people shall attack straight ahead. Summoning the priests, Joshua, son of Nun, said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant with seven of the priests carrying ram’s horns in front of the ark of the LORD.” And he ordered the people, “Proceed and surround the city, with the picked troops marching ahead of the ark of the LORD.” When Joshua spoke to the people, the seven priests who carried the ram’s horns before the LORD marched and blew their horns, and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them. In front of the priests with the horns marched the picked troops; the rear guard followed the ark, and the blowing of horns was kept up continually as they marched. But Joshua had commanded the people, “Do not shout or make any noise or outcry until I tell you, ‘Shout!’ Then you must shout.” So he had the ark of the LORD circle the city, going once around it, after which they returned to camp for the night. Early the next morning, Joshua had the priests take up the ark of the LORD. The seven priests bearing the ram’s horns marched in front of the ark of the LORD, blowing their horns. Ahead of these marched the picked troops, while the rear guard followed the ark of the LORD, and the blowing of horns was kept up continually. On this second day they again marched around the city once before returning to camp; and for six days in all they did the same. On the seventh day, beginning at daybreak, they marched around the city seven times in the same manner; on that day only did they march around the city seven times. The seventh time around, the priests blew the horns and Joshua said to the people, “Now shout, for the LORD has given you the city. The city and everything in it is under the ban. Only Rahab the prostitute and all who are in the house with her are to live, because she hid the messengers we sent. But be careful not to covet or take anything that is under the ban; otherwise you will bring upon the camp of Israel this ban and the misery of it. All silver and gold, and the articles of bronze or iron, are holy to the LORD. They shall be put in the treasury of the LORD.”
As the horns blew, the people began to shout. When they heard the sound of the horn, they raised a tremendous shout. The wall collapsed, and the people attacked the city straight ahead and took it.
Joshua 6: 1-20.
hugs n’ blessings to all those who SHOUT to the Lord & assist those walls in tumbling down!
