Our Jericho, Your Jericho

“Now Jericho was shut tightly because of the Israelites. No one was allowed to leave or enter. The Lord told Joshua, “See, I am about to defeat Jericho for you, along with its king and its warriors. Have all the warriors march around the city one time; do this for six days. Have seven priests carry seven rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day march around the city seven times, while the priests blow the horns. When you hear the signal from the rams’ horns, have the whole army give a loud battle cry. Then the city wall will collapse, and the warriors should charge straight ahead.” Joshua 6:1-5.

America, if not the Nations of the World, has now come to a crisis with profound implications. My thoughts are in multiples, divided and shaken down to one thing: the Presence of Almighty God. However, the crisis of which I speak also includes the on-going Presidential Election in America and the Pandemic becoming political. Socialism now threatens to overtake us all. 

The story of Jericho, and other biblical stories, can be characterized as taking place in our Nation today. Take a look, “America has been shut tight because of the Socialist Democrats. No one was allowed to leave or enter particular places because of the Pandemic because of ‘social distancing.’ The Lord has told us, “See, I am about to defeat the Socialists for you, along with their leaders and supporters. Have all your Patriots stand against the evil-doers for as long as it takes to expose and defeat them. Appoint someone to lead the attacks against the Socialists using the Constitution for protection being reminded of the biblical foundations thereof. The words of the Constitution and the Bible are sufficient for sound direction to be given by the Preachers. The faith of the Patriots and Preachers in God is enough to cause the Socialists to collapse and the Patriots will be able to charge ahead.”

As I have said over and over again, I agree 100% with the Apostle Paul, I am not ashamed of the Gospel of God for I am crucified with Christ, filled by His Spirit, am empowered by Him, and as he instructs the Armor of God is what I wear each and every day. With this understanding God is my Enabler for every daily evil confrontation. The said evil giant comes into focus as I cross the Valley of the Shadow of Death, but God is always with me, not shadowing me and not carrying me, but indwells my body with His Holy Spirit. The wall of evil, the wall of Socialism is about to collapse, not because of me, but because of the Spirit of God.

“The angelic messenger who had been speaking with me then returned and woke me, as a person is wakened from sleep. He asked me, “What do you see?” I replied, “I see a menorah of pure gold with a receptacle at the top. There are seven lamps at the top, with seven pipes going to the lamps. There are also two olive trees beside it, one on the right of the receptacle and the other on the left.” Then I asked the messenger who spoke with me, “What are these, sir?” He replied, “Don’t you know what these are?” So I responded, “No, sir.” Therefore he told me, “This is the Lord’s message to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by strength and not by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.” Zechariah 4:1-6.

Okay, everyone; this I believe: If Trump wins, and I believe he may, it will come to pass because of God’s Spirit Who is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. No doubt, God is on to this blatant discourse of attacks upon the Constitution and Rule of Law in America. Certainly there are many, many variables with the Key being the outright denial of God within the United States. President Trump has enjoined his Legal Team to bring this controlled walk around the Walls of Socialism in order to bring them down. Millions of prayers are being spoken to God, not necessarily for Mr. Trump, but for our Nation’s success over this Socialist attack upon us as a Nation. Will we prevail? Only if God allows the victory to be ours driven by Him. 

Yes, indeed, this is Our Jericho for Jesus is Lord.
