Everly's Verse of Worship
Written for a friend, Carol Miles, because she is emotional and cries easily.
Angels Are Crying
The angels in heaven are crying today
‘Cause you didn’t take time out to pray.
You went on your way, with no thought of the Lord
And the angels began crying with one accord.
The angels in heaven are crying today;
You forgot about God as you went on your way.
You didn’t take time the Bible, to read
And you didn’t tell Jesus about your great need
Or thank Him for the blessings you daily receive.

Defeating Jericho (Joshua 6:20, Romans 2:28-29, Joshua 5:9, Deuteronomy 31:23, Joshua 5:13-15, Ephesians 6:10-14, Joshua 6:2-5, 2 Corinthians 10:3-6, Hebrews 11:30)Pastor Mike Dissmore, July 3, 2016
Part of the Geography Lessons series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Under Joshua they crossed the Jordan river on dry land. This outward act represented an inward commitment. They prepared for victory by dedicating themselves to the Lord. He redeems us so that we can partner with him. We need to be obedient to God. Unlike Jericho our battles are spiritual. Jericho represented the strongholds in our life. We need to totally surrender. We need to let go of all of it and our faith will bring the walls down.

20So 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. (KJV)
28For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: 29But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God. (KJV)
9And the LORD said unto Joshua, This day have I rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day. (KJV)
23And he gave Joshua the son of Nun a charge, and said, Be strong and of a good courage: for thou shalt bring the children of Israel into the land which I sware unto them: and I will be with thee. (KJV)
13And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries? 14And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant? 15And the captain of the LORD's host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so. (KJV)
10Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; (KJV)
2And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. 3And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. 4And 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. 5And 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. (KJV)
2 Corinthians 10:3-6
3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 6And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled. (KJV)
30By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. (KJV)
