Joshua sent two spies to inspect the land that God had promised. Those spies were led by God to the house of Rahab the prostitute. Yes! God was most certainly in this leading because Rahab was a woman who feared the Lord more than she feared her own king, more than what might happen to her if she hid the spies!
Rahab testified to the spies that God had given them the land! Amazing how a Gentile, a Canaanite had more faith in God than the majority of the so-called people of God, Israel! Rahab was told to place the symbol of the scarlet rope in her window so that her home would be safe from destruction. We too have been given the scarlet thread of Christ’s blood covering the entrance to our hearts and through faith in His blood we are saved from death! We too can be as Rahab and bring as many of our family into the protection of God’s family through our witness – a witness that does more than talk! A witness that puts it all on the line and places faith in God above all other fears!
