Ever felt:

You were barely making it…Just hanging on…

Like the World in Which You Live was About to Crumble Around You…

Rope w/ a Knot @ End…

Hanging by a Thread?

Today - Look at a WOMAN - Literally Doing that…

Whole World is About to Collapse…

Her Entire Future Comes Down to a Thread…

Scarlet (RED) Cord = Difference of LIFE/DEATH!

Joshua 2:1- Joshua the son of Nun sent two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, & came to a harlot’s house, named Rahab, & lodged there. (4) And the woman took the two men, & hid them…(8) And before they lay down, she came up to them on the roof; And said to the men, I know that the LORD has given you the land, & the terror of you has fallen on us, & all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you. For we have heard how the LORD dried up the water of the Red sea for you, when you came out of Egypt; & what you did to the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, Sihon & Og, whom you utterly destroyed. And as soon as we had heard these things, our hearts did melt, neither did there remain any more courage in any man, because of you: for the LORD your God, he is God in heaven above, & in earth beneath. Now therefore, I pray, swear to me by the LORD, since I have showed you kindness, that you will also show kindness to my father’s house, & give me a true token: And that you will save alive my father, & my mother, & my brethren, & my sisters, & all that they have, & deliver our lives from death. And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if you utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly & truly w/ you. (17) And the men said, We will be blameless of this oath which you have made us swear. Behold, when we come into the land, you shall bind this line of scarlet cord in the window which you did let us down by: & you shall bring your father, & thy mother, & thy brethren, & all thy father’s house, home. (21) And she said, According to your words, so be it. And she sent them away, & they departed: & she bound the scarlet line in the window.

PRAY

THINK @ IT

JERICHO

A Secular, yet religious society. With God being the least of all considered. Worship offered to 100’s IF NOT 1000’s of gods.

Well Fortified city…Chariots…Houses…

Joshua’s 1st Conquest…

NO Greater Book…VICTORY…Victory…

Right in the MIDST - HARLOT…PROSTITUTE… = Girl @ Corner of some dark spot in the City…

SELLS BODY for LIFE…

KNOWN by MOST…For WHO/WHAT She IS/DOES…

KNOWN AS/REMEMBERED AS “RAHAB the HARLOT”

NOT Exactly Whose Hands You’d Like to Place Your Life in…

WHO You’d THINK GOD Would Chose to Play a Part…

PROSTITUTE:

I’m Not Sure How You Can Get to the Point of Selling Your Body for a Living…

STUCK…SERIES of EVENTS…

LIFE = Series of ABUSES…FAILURES…WOUNDS…

DAYS HAVE LITTLE or NO MEANING…

NO REAL HOPE…JOY…LOVE…

THINGS MEANT to BE Something - Nothing…

People - Nobodies…

a HARLOT…

JUST Found Out What was Left of her World - DESTROYED…!

IF ANYONE - OUTSIDE Looking IN - Her…
