Are you a Mighty Man of Valour in Jericho?
Where is Jericho?
Jericho was a strong city, fortified with high walls, strong gates and guarded by Mighty Men of Valour.
Sounds great, but let me be honest with you, if you are a Mighty Man of Valour still in Jericho, you must make haste and escape. It is time to get out of Jericho; something horrible is about to happen.
This is why!
The Mighty Men of Valour in Jericho were men trained for war, ready for battle to defend the city, but two (2) things were wrong with them.
Firstly, they were physically strong but spiritually weak. For fighting to defend Jericho, a city filled with idol worshipers, murderers, violent and disobedient people, these men were spiritually weak to fight a battle against God’s people.
Secondly, they were on the wrong side of the battle. The Mighty Man of Valour in Jericho were on the wrong side of the battle because they prepared for battle against God’s plan and purpose. God passed a judgement of death against Jericho, so the Men of Valour in Jericho had no chance at all.
And the Lord said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor. (Joshua 6:2)
The hard truth
No man, no matter how strong, can fight God and win. A strong man standing on God’s way is a dead meat.
A Man of Valour who fights in defense of evil, is a Man of Valour in Jericho. He is God’s enemy. He is spiritually weak. Such a man has no spiritual protection. He has no defense in God, rather, he has God’s judgement against him.
So many young Men are strong, talented and gifted but yet, they achieve very little or nothing, just like the men who lived in Jericho, because of disobedience to God’s plan.
Here are the facts!
Globally, more than 90% of people in the prisons are men. More than 50% of them never get back into the society meaningfully. These are like the Men of Valour in the prison city of Jericho.
Why is this number so high?
It is because so many young men have turned their back on the path of life and the preserving truth and righteousness in God.
God’s plan for every man is that he live a life of close relationship with Him in righteousness. Are you following this plan?
Today, the opposite is the case. So many Men are in pursuit of, worldly freedom and lifestyle. Their lives are filled with hard drugs, ritual killing, alcoholic addiction, gang violence, immorality of various kinds, secret cultism and disobedience.
This is the same life the Men of Valour in Jericho lived. The Mighty Men of Valour in Jericho were idol worshipers. They were cultist, violent and disobedient. They were hard drug dealers, lovers of themselves, immoral and cursed.
For this reason, God passed judgment against them and commanded Joshua to destroy them all (Joshuah 6:2). This judgement was fulfilled and still being fulfilled.
And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, ox and sheep and donkey, with the edge of the sword. (Joshua 6:21)
The way of escape
Are you a Man of Valour in Jericho? Are you living in disobedience to God’s command for righteousness? Is your life filled with drugs addiction, alcoholism, gang violence, immorality of various kinds and secret cultism and idol worship?
I urge you to make haste and escape from Jericho, because God has given instruction for the destruction of Jericho. No man still in Jericho will survive the coming onslaught. Jericho represents death.
