RAHAB: A PICTURE OF SALVATION OF THE SOUL (Continued)
Scripture Reading: Joshua 6: 1-21
The instructions given by God in the above verses required strict adherence and obedience. The instructions were explicit. They worked then and will work today if we will only believe and trust God. How am I so sure of this? It is because I see a glimpse of the power of the Cross and the priestly ministry God has ordained for His Body in this Old Testament pattern. "And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets." These words carry a powerful truth within them. Seven is the Bible number used often to represent perfection. Seven priests, seven trumpets of rams’ horns; seven days, and seven times on the seventh day. Let us read the same verse in this manner: And a complete and perfected priestly ministry shall bear before the presence of God a complete and perfected clear-sounding Word (trumpet) and today shall compass the stronghold of the enemy which is the carnal mind and preach deliverance thereby defeating the enemy.
