Secrets #2

The Battle of Jericho

Joshua 6:20 ,

” So the people shouted, and priests blew the trumpets; and when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, the people shouted with a great shout and the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight ahead,and they took the city.

To cut the long story short, once upon a time the Israelites were slaves in Egypt, and after many a hardship ,they set out from Egypt under Moses to their promised land. Their first conquest was Jericho under Joshua.

The people of Jericho were very much scared of the Israelites and they made it impossible to infiltrate their walls.

Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.”

And that’s exactly what happened! The wall collapsed and the city belonged to the poeple of Isreal. Archaeologists have dug up the site and confirmed the biblical story. (http://www.christiananswers.net/q-abr/abr-a011.html)

The story of the Israelites is beyond flabbergasting. For them, the red sea parted, manna fell down from heaven, a spring burst forth from a rock in the desert, and for Joshua , for him, the sun stood still;

“So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.”

So, How did the wall fall? That’s the big question. Some say it might have fallen due to an earth quake. I think not. The clues are all there. The army shouted and the wall fell. Sounds familiar?

God is a freaking genius!!!.  😀  You know that glass breaks when you sing at a particular frequency. Why? Coz of Resonance. The natural frequency of the glass becomes equal to that of the sound aka noise (when you sing). Frequencies match and boom! It all comes tumbling down.

The army marched around the city for six days and on the seventh day, on the long blast of the seventh trumpet, all the army of Israel shouted ,the natural frequency of the wall became equal to the frequency of the noise and then, the walls came tumbling down.

Resonance 😀 . A better tactic than the Trojan horse, I would say.

  1. So its that tactic that made the wall go down right? So Physics says its not definitely a miracle and therefore the conclusion is that all miracles stay miracles until they are explained by science, right?

    What is your opinion on the parting of the Red Sea? Miracle or not.

    1. Whatever that happens, it always obeys the laws of nature, the laws of physics, that is how God created it. All of them, miracles have a explanation , most often that only God knows. To us, the world is mysterious and hidden behind confusing equations. But the creator knows his work best. Once you rely on him, he will open your eyes, you will see things more clearly. God is amazing!Just look at his creations. The ancients had no idea of resonance but the one who told them to do it, did know. There is a reason Christ said to believe. “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Nothing is impossible for God . Physics, Chem or Bio, all of em are the works of the Almighty. Science is the mystery that God lets us dabble in. It’s his creation we are studying. This post is on an amazing way that God helped his people. Miracles are miracles, if they are genuine and this one is.

      The red sea – the Bible says that God caused a great wind to blow and part it. Definitely, God’s work 😀 . I just wanted to say that there are so many things of this world that we do not know and he does and when we depend on him, he opens our eyes. 🙂 Sorry for the really long reply!
