Ever heard of Joshua and the battle of Jericho? Moses was not going to go into The Promised Land and chose Joshua to be the Israelites’ new leader. Joshua ended up having to fight a battle at Jericho.
Joshua was concerned about how to win the battle because the walls of Jericho were too high, but God sent an angel to tell Joshua what to do.
The angel told Joshua to walk around the walls of Jericho 7 times.
Joshua also had to cross the river Jordan. He instructed the priests to take up the Ark of the Covenant and pass over before the people (Joshua 3:6). God told Joshua to tell the priests who carried the Ark of the Covenant that when they came to the brink of the water of Jordan, to stand still in the Jordan (Joshua 3:8). As soon as the soles of the feet of the priests who carried the Ark of the Covenant stood in the water, the Lord caused the waters of Jordan to be cut off from the waters that came down from above and they stood upon a heap (Joshua 3:13). So, God performed a miracle and the children of Israel were able to cross.
And when they got to the walls of Jericho they walked around the walls of Jericho once while blowing the trumpets and returned to camp.
They did the same thing for 7 days.
On the 7th day, Joshua ordered the men to stop and also told them to make a loud sound and they did so.
When they did, the walls started to shake and the walls came down.
Joshua and the children of Israel took the city because they obeyed what the Lord told them to do and the Israelites entered The Promised Land.
