Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
We have seen of recent every city and everything straitly shut up. But thank God we have been doing intense prayer march around the cities and nation; not as a mere religious ritual but as a preparation to take the cities and nations. I hope everyone has this understanding that when things are shut, then do a prayer and fasting walk around it. Israel fasted talking, jesting, carnal and dead communication and conversation. They bridled their tongue. You do not gain victory over straitly shut things by noise and careless talk. And they marched in faith and ready to take the city. And as soon as the walls fell, they moved in immediately and took the city. Prepare to take the city. I can see the cracks in the wall.
