LESSON FOR DECEMBER 7
THE FALL OF JERICHO.
LESSON TEXT-Josh a .6:8-11 14-20.
GOLDEN TEXT-"All things are pos
sible to him that believeth."-Mark 9:23.
There is a wonderful teaching in
the story of the two memorials (Ch.
4) that Joshua erected after Israel
had passed .over the Jordan. One is
left to be ovirwhelmedby the river,
:ile other Is erected in Gilgal. They
mark the istinction between
Christ's death under judgmentin the
believer's place, and the believer'S
perfect deliverance from judgment.
See Ps. 42:7 and 88:7; Josh. 12:31-33.
The stones in the Jordan stand typic
ally for Ps. 22:1-18.
In chapter five is the record of the
*proach of unbelief, "rolled away"
. 9) the cessation of the manna (v.
12) and the appearance' of.the "cap
tain of. the Lord's host" (vv. 13-15) ,
unto Joshua as he was making a re
connaissance before Jericho.
I. God's Orders, vv. 1-5. The fame
of the Israelites had preceded them
(ch. 2:9) and that this was added
too by the miraculous deliverance at
the Jordan is. suggested- In verse one.
Verse two suggests that again 'they
must proceed upon the bare word of
Jehovah, and humanly speaking, how
utterly absurd appear the divine or
Jehovah's Word Followed. .
ii. Joshui's instructions, vv. 6-8
A reading of this section reveals the
fact that Jdshua diligently followed
out the word of Jehovah. Preceding
the people was the ark, and we need
to remember what It ~contained and
that it is a type of Christ. Following
the armed men and the priests came
the silent host (v. 10). No other
sound than that of the trumpet (V.
The walls of Jericho are not to fall
by the use of the ordinary Imple
ments of war, see 2. Cor. 10:4, and
the resultant victory was in no. way
to give opportunity for human boast
Ing, Eph. Z:9; I Cor. 1:26-29. Joshua
did not set forth a "more reasonable
method;" he did not alter God's or
ders- that he had no right to do, nor
have we, Rev. 22:18, 19; John 3:2;
Matt. 15:6. The Implements and the
methods were foolish to those in
Jericho and to all unbelievers, see I
Cor. 1:21-25. It was the priests who
led with the "jubilee trumpets," typi
cal of the gospel which Paul tells is
the "power of God," Roi. 1:S.
Il1. The Obedient People, vv. 9-16.
One great act of distrust and dis
obedience led to those years of aim
less wandering accompanied by dis
comfort and resulting.in death to all
(save two, Caleb and Joshiuaj. who
crossed the Red Sea with Moses.
Here we have the contrast. Seven
days of patient, obedient marching,
according to specific orders, Is fol
lowed by victory and possessionl.
What a strange sight this cavalcade
must have made. The trumpet blow
Ing priests; the ark, sy~bolic of Je
hovah's presence and typical of 2
Christ; the silent multitude. Verily 2
this new generation Is being tested
e re they enter into their promised in
heritance. On the seventh day they
arose earlier and were subjected to a 2
seven-fold test. Our fiercest testing
Is generally just before the moment
of our greatest victory.
Saved by Faith.
Faith used means ordered of God, 2
foolish to man, and wrought a great 2
victory. Faithful obedience .4s here j
wonderfully contrasted with former :
unfaithfulness. Joshua directs the i
spies to ses'ch out .Rahab and she 2
and her household are saved accord
tng to promise, 'vv. 22-25. She also ;
was saved by faith, Heb. 11:31. and 2
became one of the line -from, which2
Christ came, Matt. 1:5. The"inly2
part of the wall that remaine&'afnd"
tng was that where Rabab's house2
btood, vv. 22, see chapter 2:15.2
The teaching is very plain. As the
Israelites depended wholly upon. God,
were obedient to his orders, accepted
his discipline, held back all passion
ad covetousness, they entered~ into
tefruits of a victory that made easy
many subsequent ones. Their acts of
faith were a more severe test than
those more visible and carnal means
of fighting battles.
As these people of God had crossed
the Jordan, submitted to the. rite of
circumcision, took their first. march
In this land of promise and captured
this walled- city which stood .in the
way of their progress, the unbelief of
forty years was rebuked. This was a
daj of vindication for Caleb anj
Joshua, a day of proving that God
was able to give victory to the people
In whom he delighted.
The Golden Text illustrates what
It Is to believe, when we recall the
story from which It Is taken-oedi
ent faith in spite of appearances. No
one can deny the absurdity of a peo
pie walking around the walls of. a
city blowing rams' horns and expect
ing to possess it. Faith in both of
these incidents depended upon the
word of God and did the apparently
foolish thing, thereby demonstrating
Its wisdom. and his power.
1< Faith is revealed also as the power
tc wait and to persist. Faith Is co
operation with God in the accomplisk
ment of hiis prrnoses.
