Joshua 6, Amplified Bible. Now is the time, now is the season! The high walls that have kept you out in the past, that impenetrable fortress, sealed up tight — where you couldn’t get in, and absolutely no blessings were coming out — God assures you that they are coming down! God says, “SEE – I have given Jericho, its king and mighty men of valor, into your hands!” God is giving you GOOD things, the very best, those MIGHTY things you have sought, both personally and for the sake of the Kingdom! But you must be obedient unto death, doing whatever He tells you to do, even if it doesn’t make sense.
Whether you realize it or not, you have been marching to God’s orders. It’s been His will this whole time that you marched round and round and round Jericho (your city He has ordained for you!). He said, “…6-days shall you do this!” You have marched around, waging war, railing against the “wall” that has kept you out, pounding your fist on the judge’s stand, contending, praying mightily, 6-days you have done this. For 6-days you have knocked and knocked, seemingly with no answer! 6-days you have tried to go around this city, in the flesh, waging war in your flesh. It has NOT all been for naught!
BUT GOD….His will be done! The 7th time around the city, on the 7th day, when the time is right (NOW) 7-priests shall bear 7-trumpets, sounding “Oh, when the saints come marching in!!” God will accomplish more in one day than you have in all the many times that you have gone around and around and around in your 6-day march! 7-speaks to Divine Perfection, Completion, “it is finished!” 7- is the perfect will of the Lord, and on the 7th day, in His perfect timing, NOW JERICHO …. all men will go over the wall right STRAIGHT in front of him! That means you must be in position and you are! God has supernaturally positioned you, for His Glory! Think of musical chairs, and when that last note of the song sounds, you must find a seat. God wants to seat you in places of authority, so He has positioned you where He wants you to be!
God told Joshua to circle the town and blow trumpets and shout loudly. In the natural this couldn’t possibly tear down walls. However, the walls that keep us out are supernatural, spiritual barriers, with Angels posted as sentries holding flaming swords. This doesn’t seem possible in the natural, but with God all things are possible! Joshua was obedient, and God MOVED on behalf of His children!
He is speaking to you today, to tell you that the obedience that you have exhibited and manifested to give Him glory, this obedience is what is bringing the walls down! Without God they wouldn’t budge. But because you have been obedient, the Lord is tearing the walls down FOR you – and you will be WELL rewarded for all your hard work and contending! This is His mandate, and He will personally go before you and tear down the walls that have kept you out.
Look for it to happen NOW, JERICHO!!
