This post is way overdue.

I read about Rahab.

I learned that her name meant storm, arrogance, broad and spacious. I found this interesting because she was a prostitute.

Her story is found in Joshua 2:1-21, and 6:17-25
Matthew 1:5
Hebrews 11:31
James 2:25

Rahab lived in Jericho. She saw the Israelites march around the city. She had faith that she and her family would be saved.

Walls are a sign of strength and protection around a city.

God wants to be our wall to protect us from outside invaders. God's wall around us is stronger than any wall that any man could build. God's walls are inpenetrable by the enemy but inviting to a brother or sister in Christ.

Rahab feared the Lord. She, along with everyone else in Jericho, had heard of the feats of God that accompanied the Israelites. She helped out the spies. She asked for favor of God to spare her life and the lives of her family. The spies promised but only if they stayed in the house. So that makes me wonder, when the walls of Jericho fell was Rahab's house the only section that stayed erect.

See always more questions.
