Joshua 2:18 unless, when we come into the land,
you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let
Luke 21:36 But stay awake at all times, praying
that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going
to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.
was told to hang up this scarlet cord in her window. She was promised
that she and her house would be saved as long as they stayed in the
house behind the red cord.
I am sure every day she looked out the window and asked herself, is
this the day it will happen? Is this the day Jericho will be destroyed?
Then suddenly one day she sees an army coming toward Jericho. She gathers
her family and her friends, telling them to get ready and come to her
house because Joshua is coming…
We, the church has been told that this earth is getting ready for destruction.
But we have a hope. We have hung our red cord, the blood of Jesus, in
our window. But we also are looking out the window for the signs of
Jesus’ coming. The disciples asked him, “Tell us, when will these
things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end
of the age?” (Matthew 24:3)
But just like the story of Joshua and Rahab, the army went back and
nothing happened. Seven days, and the 7th day, 7 times, without anything
happening. The church has looked out the window of time and seen signs
of His coming. This has caused us to gather family, friends, and people
saying, get ready for Jesus is coming back.
One of these days, it’s really going to happen. Make sure you are in
the house. Make sure you are ready. Gøran Andreassen
