Introducing Rahab


Joshua 2:1-24

The Israelites were about to enter Canaan and claim their promised land.

The first city they would have to face was the great walled city of Jericho.

If they could take this city, they could easily split the country into two, and then move from there to conquer the north and the south.

********

Before they attacked the city, Joshua sent two spies into the city to examine the mood of the people, and to determine whether or not they were ready for the war that was coming.

*******

When the two men arrived in Jericho, they went to the home of a harlot.

Their purpose in entering into a harlot’s home was not immoral.

Their reasons were practical.

The sight of men entering a harlot’s home would not attract too much attention.

*******

What they found when they entered the home of Rahab was a shock to them.

They found Rahab changed by the power of God!

*******

Rahab is a demonstration of the power of God to transform lives.

God can take sinners who will place their faith in Him and completely changes them by His power.

*******

Let us look at what the Lord did for Rahab.

Let us see how Rahab saved and changed by the power of God!
