22 But Joshua had said unto the two men that had spied out the country, Go into the harlot’s house, and bring out thence the woman, and all that she hath, as ye sware unto her.
23 And the young men that were spies went in, and brought out Rahab, and her father, and her mother, and her brethren, and all that she had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel
Jericho was destroyed. Every living thing in it was put to death except for Rahab and her family. They had chosen to help the people of the Living God. For this when the walls of Jericho came down and the Israelite army marched through the city, her family was protected. We as Christians need to learn this. God can lay waste to a country, but still protect and deliver his people. He can rain fire and brimstone down on a city, and his children can walk through it unscathed. This is because when you are in the will of God, you are also under his protection. The world wants you to walk, talk, and be just like them. However, if you do this, you will also face the same tribulation as they do. Make the decision to walk in his will. Make the choice to listen to his commands, and not walk the world commands. If you do this, then when judgement arrives you can be spared from the judgement that God can pour out on the sinful ways of this world.
