They Came, they Saw and Conquered

Post  Fenny West on Thu 30 Oct 2008, 3:24 am


They were impenetrable,
Indomitable, impregnable,
Formidable, unconquerable.

The Knees of their enemies knocked
When they mentioned Israel.
They knew they were doomed for hell.
Their presence threatened, terrified
The enemy, their adversaries, cried.

Why?
God was with them
God fought for them.

They marched round the city,
Once they did daily for six,
Reinforcing it was divine territory.
They knew it was no risk,
Because the Lord had gone before.
He would open the door.
He had told them so
In spite of size of the foe
Their silence and obedience
Triggered Godís presence.

He showed them the way
Gave them the bleu-print
No one should stray
No one should faint
They followed the word
And it became a fetter
Binding the enemy tighter

On the seventh day
They marched round it, seven
With the blast of trumpets
And a shout that rent the air
It caused so much stair,
Ramming the enemy into Godís net.


The Lord has given you victory
The First Fruit is ripened;
Time to pick the harvest.

The hearts of their foes came to their mouths;
They ran, helter-skelter,
north to south, no march for the bout;
Hearts melting like ice on a sunny day.
They saw first hand, the Hand of God
They saw without a doubt the Finger of God.
The walls of Jericho came tumbling down;
Falling with such a bang and a crash;
Jacob gave them such a bash;
Israel ate Jericho like men eat bread.
So overwhelming was their dread;
They came, they saw, they conquered,
Because they went in faith, united, obedient.


Joshua 6

Powerful words my friend... Powerful reality
which we all can share and be a part of if we so choose.
