Walls come Down

Joshua 6

Intro.

In Joshua 6 we read of the children of

Israel on route to the Promised Land.

Jericho stands in the way, but Joshua

Following the commands that was given

To him by the captain of the Lord finds

That this was no problem.

Let’s stop there for a moment, have

We listened to the captain. If God told

Us this kind of orders would we follow?

Jericho felt safe in their city with walls and

Joshua told march 1 time for 6 days and 7

Times on the 7th. This is sort of strange,

But when you Follow God and are willing to

Do the ridiculous, God will Do the miraculous.

Lets look at walls that we got to take

Down in our Life.

We read of a few things that I want to

Comment on first—

The ark of the Lord represents Christ.

The walls of Jericho were walls of

Safety for them, and yet stood in the

Way of the children of Israel, in this

Format, Jericho represents the world to us,

For This message.

WALLS TO COME DOWN

I) WALLS OF PRIDE

God hates pride.

No way around it, pride is our enemy.

a) Lucifer fell as a result of pride

Isa. 14:12-14

I will ascend into heaven

I will exalt my throne above God’s

I will sit upon the mount

I will above the heights

I will be like the most High

b) pride is at top of God’s hate list

Prov.6:16-19

c) God only promised to exalt the meek

Matt. 5:5

I peter 5:6

II) WALLS OF DISCONTENTION

A) strife

B) hatred

C) criticism

All the above will fester and spread like infection

And destroy the ministry of the church

People get hurt feelings about this or that

When will we learn this is a trick of Satan?

There was no room in the inn, what about your heart?

Matt.5:23

Matt.7:1

Just to mention a few verses

III) WALLS OF LACK OF FAITH

Heb.11:1and 6

Forsaking

All

I

Trust

Him

That what faith is, no plan B or C

We are not to know what is next

We don’t need to know what is next

All I need to know is who is leading

II Tim.1:12

IV) WALLS OF DISOBEDIENCE

Example

Jonah

King Saul ISam.15

A) What did Jesus say?

Luke 6:46

John 14:15

What will it take for us to say yes to God?

b) In the following ways

Salvation

His will

His word

According to the above verses, do we really love Him?

Never put a ? where God put a .

Conclusion:

As you look at Joshua 6:26

They were told not to rebuild the walls

Are you going rebuild the walls?

God clearly told them the result if they

Do, and we must knock them down and

not rebuild either.

If we are serious about our commitment to

Christ ,they must stay down.
