Joshua chapter 1-6 Starchart: 1406 B.C. Notice the "line of scarlet thread in the window" which Rahab "didst let us down by" (2:18). Notice "the twelve men ... every man of you a (lunar white or black) stone upon his (Coma stool leg or regular) shoulder" (4:4-5) and "sharp (lunar crescent) knives" that "(red radius) circumcise again the children of Israel" (5:2). Notice Joshua "Loose thy (lunar) shoe from off thy (Ophiuchus) foot" (5:15). Notice "seven (lunar white and black crescent) trumpets of rams' horns" (shofars)(6:4). Notice the "straitly shut up" (solar) brass gates of the walled city of Jericho (Cancer) (6:1). Notice the (Argo) Ark with (solar) Shekinah Glory inside (6:4). Notice that "the people (red radius) shouted when the priests (red radius) blew with the (lunar crescent) trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people (lunar ears) heard the sound of the (lunar crescent) trumpet, and the people (red radius) shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down (red radius) flat, so that the (male constellations) people went up into the city, every man (red radius) straight before him, and they took the (Cancer) city" (6:20). Notice that 2000° cubits behind the Ark (Argo) brings us to the bow of Sagittarius. From when our Lord came the first time (4 BC-31AD) till when he comes the second time for his bride (2018-2026 AD) is 2000 years. Our Lord will return as Sagittarius and "out of his mouth goeth a sharp SWORD" (19:14) -- a two-edged crescent sword at the tip of an arrow in his bow.

Clockwise from when "ye shall compass the (Zodiac) city, all ye (male constellations) men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days" (6:3) (6 laps x 360°) till "the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times (7 laps x 360°), and the priests shall blow with the (lunar crescent) trumpets" (6:4) is seven days during the Feast of Unleavened Bread in 1406 B.C. This foreshadows the seven trumpets that are blown in the Apocalypse culminating in another Joshua (Yeshua) invading and conquering another Promised Land (the entire earth) with other Israelites (Christians or saints).

 

 

1:1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying,

2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this (zodiac) people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.

3 Every place that the sole of your (Ophiuchus) foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.

4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river (Eridanus) Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun (sun on red radius horizon), shall be your coast.

5 There shall not any (constellation) man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.

6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.

7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest.

8 This (golden) book of the law (with red radius book mark) shall not depart out of thy (Ophiuchus) mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

10 Then Joshua (Ophiuchus) (red radius) commanded the (constellation) officers of the people, saying,

11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this (Eridanus or Milky Way) Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it.

12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying,

13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The (Shekinah) Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land.

14 Your (Virgo, Coma, Gemini) wives, your (Coma) little ones, and your (Taurus) cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your (zodiac) brethren armed, all the mighty (constellation) men of valour, and help them;

15 Until the (Shekinah) Lord have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the (Shekinah) Lord your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the Lord's servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the (sun on red radius horizon) sunrising.

16 And they answered (Ophiuchus) Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go.

17 According as we (lunar ears) hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we (lunar ears) hearken unto thee: only the (Shekinah) Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses.

18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy (red radius) commandment, and will not (lunar ears) hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to (red radius) death: only be strong and of a good courage.

2:1 And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men (Gemini) to (lunar eyeballs) spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot's (red radius) house, named (Virgo) Rahab, and lodged there.

2 And it was told the (Cepheus) king of Jericho, saying, (lunar eyeballs) Behold, there came (Gemini) men in hither to night of the children of Israel to (lunar eyeballs) search out the country.

3 And the (Cepheus) king of Jericho sent unto (Virgo) Rahab, saying, Bring forth the (Gemini) men that are come to thee, which are entered into thine (red radius) house: for they be come to search out all the country.

4 And the (Virgo) woman took the two (Gemini) men, and hid them, and said thus, There came men unto me, but I wist not whence they were:

5 And it came to pass about the time of shutting of the (solar) gate, when it was (zodiac) dark, that the (Gemini) men went out: whither the men went I wot not: pursue after them quickly; for ye shall overtake them.

6 But she had brought them up to the roof of the (red radius) house, and hid them with the (red radius) stalks of flax, which she had laid in order upon the roof.

7 And the (constellation) men pursued after them the way to (Eridanus or Milky Way) Jordan unto the fords: and as soon as they which pursued after them were gone out, they shut the (solar) gate.

8 And before they were laid down, she came up unto them upon the roof;

9 And she (lunar open mouth) said unto the (Gemini) men, I know that the (Shekinah) Lord hath given you the land, and that your (red radius) terror is fallen upon us, and that all the inhabitants of the land (red radius) faint because of you.

10 For we have (lunar ears) heard how the Lord dried up the water of the (Milky Way or Eridanus) Red sea for you, when ye came out of Egypt; and what ye did unto the two kings of the Amorites, that were on the other side Jordan, (Perseus) Sihon and (Orion) Og, whom ye utterly destroyed.

11 And as soon as we had (lunar ears) heard these things, our (lunar) hearts did melt (rotate), neither did there remain any more courage in any (zodiac) man, because of you: for the (Shekinah) Lord your God, he is God in heaven above, and in earth beneath.

12 Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the (Shekinah) Lord, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father's (red radius) house, and give me a true token:

13 And that ye will save alive my (Centaur) father, and my (Coma) mother, and my (Bootes & Coma) brethren, and my (Gemini) sisters, and all that they have (zodiac), and deliver our lives from death.

14 And the (Gemini) men (red radius) answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the Lord hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee.

15 Then she let them down by a (red radius) cord through the (lunar) window: for her (red radius) house was upon the (red radius) town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall.

16 And she said unto them, Get you to the (red radius) mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way.

17 And the (Gemini) men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine oath which thou hast made us (red radius) swear.

18 Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this (red radius) line of scarlet thread in the (lunar) window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy (Centaur) father, and thy (Coma) mother, and thy (Bootes & Coma) brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee.

19 And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his (red radius) blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the (red radius) house, his (red radius) blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.

20 And if thou (red radius) utter this our business, then we will be quit of thine oath which thou hast made us to swear.

21 And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the (red radius) scarlet line in the window.

representing Christ's blood that saves from death

22 And they went, and came unto the (red radius) mountain, and abode there three days, until the pursuers were returned: and the pursuers sought them throughout all the way, but found them not.

23 So the two (Gemini) men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to (Ophiuchus) Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them:

24 And they (red radius) said unto Joshua, Truly the Lord hath delivered into our (lunar) hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do (red radius) faint because of us.

3:1 And Joshua (Ophiuchus) rose (sun on red radius horizon) early in the morning; and they removed from Shittim, and came to (Eridanus or Milky Way) Jordan, he and all the children of Israel, and lodged there before they passed over.

2 And it came to pass after three days, that the officers went through the host;

3 And they commanded the people, saying, When ye see the (Argo) ark of the covenant of the (Shekinah) Lord your God, and the (Gemini) priests the Levites bearing it, then ye shall remove from your place, and go after it.

4 Yet there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure: come not near unto it, that ye may know the way by which ye must go: for ye have not passed this way heretofore.

The 2000 cubits are 2000 years between the resurrection of our Lord (31 A.D.) and the resurrection of Christians (2026 A.D.).

5 And Joshua (Ophiuchus) said unto the people, Sanctify yourselves: for to morrow the (Shekinah) Lord will do wonders among you.

6 And Joshua spake unto the priests, saying, Take up the (Argo) ark of the covenant, and pass over before the people. And they took up the (Argo) ark of the covenant, and went before the people.

7 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto Joshua, This day will I begin to magnify thee in the (lunar eyeballs) sight of all Israel, that they may know that, as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee.

8 And thou shalt command the (Gemini) priests that bear the (Argo) ark of the covenant, saying, When ye are come to the brink of the (Eridanus or Milky Way) water of Jordan, ye shall stand still in Jordan.

9 And Joshua (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said unto the children of Israel, Come hither, and (lunar ears) hear the words of the (Shekinah) Lord your God.

10 And Joshua (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said, Hereby ye shall know that the living God is among you, and that he will without fail drive out from before you the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Hivites, and the Perizzites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Jebusites.

11 (Lunar eyes) Behold, the (Argo) ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth passeth over before you into Jordan.

12 Now therefore take you twelve (constellation) men out of the tribes of Israel, out of every tribe a man.

13 And it shall come to pass, as soon as the soles of the feet of the priests that bear the (Argo) ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the (Milky Way or Eridanus) waters of Jordan, that the waters of Jordan shall be (red radius) cut off from the waters that come down from above; and they shall stand upon an heap.

14 And it came to pass, when the people removed from their (red radius) tents, to pass over (Milky Way or Eridanus) Jordan, and the (Gemini) priests bearing the (Argo) ark of the covenant before the people;

15 And as they that bare the (Argo) ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the (Gemini) priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the (Milky Way or Eridanus) water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)

16 That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.

17 And the (Gemini) priests that bare the (Argo) ark of the covenant of the (Shekinah) Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.

4:1 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over Jordan, that the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) spake unto Joshua, saying,

2 Take you twelve men out of the people, out of every tribe a man,

3 And (red radius) command ye them, saying, Take you hence out of the midst of (Milky Way or Eridanus) Jordan, out of the place where the priests' feet stood firm, twelve (lunar) stones, and ye shall carry them over with you, and leave them in the lodging place, where ye shall lodge this night.

4 Then Joshua (Ophiuchus) called the twelve (constellation) men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every tribe a man:

5 And Joshua (red radius) said unto them, Pass over before the (Argo) ark of the Lord your God into the midst of Jordan, and take you up every man of you a (lunar) stone upon his (constellation) shoulder, according unto the number of the tribes of the children of Israel:

6 That this may be a (zodiac) sign among you, that when your (Gemini & Coma) children ask their (constellation) fathers in time to come, saying, What mean ye by these (lunar) stones?

7 Then ye shall answer them, That the waters of Jordan were cut off before the (Argo) ark of the covenant of the Lord; when it passed over Jordan, the waters of Jordan were cut off: and these (lunar) stones shall be for a memorial unto the children of Israel for ever.

8 And the children of Israel did so as (Ophiuchus) Joshua commanded, and took up twelve (lunar) stones out of the midst of Jordan, as the (Shekinah) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Joshua, according to the number of the tribes of the children of Israel, and carried them over with them unto the place where they lodged, and laid them down there.

9 And Joshua set up twelve (lunar) stones in the midst of Jordan, in the place where the feet of the (Gemini) priests which bare the (Argo) ark of the covenant stood: and they are there unto this day.

10 For the (Gemini) priests which bare the (Argo) ark stood in the midst of Jordan, until everything was finished that the (Shekinah) Lord commanded (Ophiuchus) Joshua to (red radius) speak unto the people, according to all that Moses commanded Joshua: and the people hasted and passed over.

11 And it came to pass, when all the people were clean passed over, that the (Argo) ark of the Lord passed over, and the (Gemini) priests, in the presence of the people.

12 And the children of Reuben, and the children of Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh, passed over armed before the children of Israel, as Moses spake unto them:

13 About forty thousand prepared for war passed over before the Lord unto battle, to the plains of Jericho.

14 On that day the Lord magnified (Ophiuchus) Joshua in the (lunar eyeballs) sight of all Israel; and they feared him, as they feared Moses, all the days of his life.

15 And the (Shekinah) Lord (red radius) spake unto Joshua, saying,

16 Command the (Gemini) priests that bear the (Argo) ark of the testimony, that they come up out of (Eridanus or Milky Way) Jordan.

17 Joshua (Ophiuchus) therefore commanded the (Gemini) priests, saying, Come ye up out of Jordan.

18 And it came to pass, when the (Gemini) priests that bare the (Argo) ark of the covenant of the Lord were come up out of the midst of Jordan, and the soles of the priests' feet were lifted up unto the dry land, that the waters of (Milky Way or Eridanus) Jordan returned unto their place, and flowed over all his banks, as they did before.

19 And the people came up out of Jordan on the tenth day of the first month, and encamped in Gilgal, in the east border of Jericho.

20 And those twelve (lunar) stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua (Ophiuchus) pitch in Gilgal.

21 And he (red radius) spake unto the children of Israel, saying, When your (Gemini or Coma) children shall ask their (constellation) fathers in time to come, saying, What mean these stones?

22 Then ye shall let your children know, saying, Israel came over this Jordan on dry land.

23 For the (Shekinah) Lord your God dried up the waters of (Milky Way or Eridanus) Jordan from before you, until ye were passed over, as the Lord your God did to the Red sea, which he dried up from before us, until we were gone over:

24 That all the people of the earth might know the (lunar) hand of the (Shekinah) Lord, that it is mighty: that ye might fear the Lord your God for ever.

5:1 And it came to pass, when all the kings of the Amorites, which were on the side of Jordan westward, and all the kings of the Canaanites, which were by the sea, (lunar ear) heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of Jordan from before the children of Israel, until we were passed over, that their (lunar) heart melted, neither was there spirit in them any more, because of the children of Israel.

2 At that time the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Joshua, Make thee sharp (lunar crescent) knives, and circumcise again the children of Israel the second time.

3 And Joshua made him sharp (lunar crescent) knives, and circumcised the children of Israel at the (red radius) hill of the foreskins.

4 And this is the cause why Joshua did circumcise: All the people that came out of Egypt, that were males, even all the men of war, died in the wilderness by the way, after they came out of Egypt.

5 Now all the people that came out were circumcised: but all the people that were born in the wilderness by the way as they came forth out of Egypt, them they had not circumcised.

6 For the children of Israel walked forty years in the wilderness, till all the people that were men of war, which came out of Egypt, were consumed, because they obeyed not the voice of the Lord: unto whom the Lord sware that he would not shew them the land, which the Lord sware unto their fathers that he would give us, a land that floweth with (lunar) milk and (solar) honey.

7 And their children, whom he raised up in their stead, them Joshua (lunar crescent) circumcised: for they were uncircumcised, because they had not circumcised them by the way.

8 And it came to pass, when they had done circumcising all the people, that they abode in their places in the camp, till they were whole.

9 And the (Shekinah) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Joshua, This day have I (lunar) rolled away the reproach of Egypt from off you. Wherefore the name of the place is called Gilgal unto this day.

10 And the children of Israel encamped in Gilgal, and kept the passover (red radius slaying lunar lamb) on the fourteenth day of the month at even in the plains of Jericho.

11 And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened (lunar) cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day.

12 And the (lunar) manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his (lunar) eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a (Perseus) 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?

14 And 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 (rotated), and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my Lord unto his servant?

15 And the captain of the Lord's host said unto (Ophiuchus) Joshua, Loose thy (lunar) shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

6:1 Now Jericho (Cancer) was straitly shut up (solar brass gates closed) because of the (male constellations) children of Israel: none went out, and none came in.

2 And the (Shekinah Glory) Lord said unto (Orion) Joshua, (lunar eyes) See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the (Cepheus) king thereof, and the mighty (male constellations) men of valour.

3 And ye shall compass the (Zodiac) city, all ye (male constellations) men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days (6 laps).

4 And seven priests shall bear before the (Argo) ark seven (lunar crescent) trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times (7 laps), and the priests shall blow with the (lunar crescent) trumpets.

5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long (red radius) blast with the (lunar crescent) ram's horn, and when ye (lunar ear) hear the (red radius) sound of the trumpet, all the people shall (red radius) shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the (male constellations) people shall ascend up every man (red radius) straight before him.

6 And Joshua the son of Nun (red radius) called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the (Argo) ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven (lunar crescent) trumpets of rams' horns before the (Argo) ark of the Lord.

7 And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the (Argo) ark of the Lord.

8 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the (male constellations) people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of (lunar crescent) rams' horns passed on before the (Shekinah Glory) Lord, and blew with the (lunar crescent) trumpets: and the (Argo) ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them.

9 And the armed (constellation) men went before the priests that (red radius) blew with the (lunar crescent) trumpets, and the rereward came after the (Argo) ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the (lunar crescent) trumpets.

10 And Joshua had (red radius) commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your (lunar open) mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.

11 So the (Argo) ark of the Lord compassed the (Zodiac) city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.

12 And Joshua rose early in the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, and the priests took up the (Argo) ark of the Lord.

13 And seven priests bearing seven (lunar crescent) trumpets of rams' horns before the (Argo) ark of the Lord went on continually, and (red radius) blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rereward came after the (Argo) ark of the Lord, the priests going on, and blowing with the (red radius) trumpets.

14 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days (6 laps).

15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the (sun on red radius horizon) day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times (7 laps).

16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the (lunar crescent) trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, (red radius) Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.

17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the Lord: only (Virgo) Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the (red radius) house (Coma, Bootes & Centaur), because she hid the (Gemini) messengers that we sent.

18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing (solar or lunar), lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.

19 But all the (lunar) silver, and (solar) gold, and vessels of (solar) brass and (lunar) iron, are consecrated unto the (Shekinah Glory) Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.

20 So the people (red radius) shouted when the priests blew with the (lunar crescent) trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people (lunar ears) heard the sound of the (lunar crescent) trumpet, and the people (red radius) shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the (male constellations) people went up into the city, every man (red radius) straight before him, and they took the city.

21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the (Zodiac) city, both (Auriga) man and (Andromeda) woman, (Coma) young and (Ophiuchus) old, and (Taurus) ox, and (Aries) sheep, and ass, with the edge of the (red radius) sword.

22 But Joshua had said unto the two (Gemini) men that had (lunar eyeballs) spied out the country, Go into the (Virgo) harlot's (red radius) house, and bring out thence the (Virgo) woman, and all that she (lunar basket) hath, as ye (Castor) sware unto her.

23 And the young (Gemini) men that were spies went in, and brought out (Virgo) Rahab, and her (Centaur) father, and her (Coma) mother, and her (Bootes) brethren, and all that she (lunar) had; and they brought out all her kindred, and left them without the camp of Israel.

24 And they burnt the city with (solar) fire, and all that was therein (black zodiac): only the (lunar) silver, and the (solar) gold, and the vessels of (solar) brass and of (lunar) iron, they put into the treasury of the (red radius) house of the Lord.

25 And Joshua saved (Virgo) Rahab the harlot alive, and her father's household, and all that she (lunar basket) had; and she dwelleth in Israel even unto this day; because she hid the (Gemini) messengers, which Joshua sent to (lunar eyes) spy out Jericho.

26 And Joshua adjured them at that time, saying, Cursed be the man before the Lord, that riseth up and buildeth this city Jericho: he shall lay the (Cancer) foundation thereof in his (lunar) firstborn, and in his youngest (lunar) son shall he set up the (solar) gates of it.

27 So the (Shekinah Glory) Lord was with (Orion) Joshua; and his fame was (red radius) noised throughout all the country.

Jericho Falls After Seven Trumpets

"The thing that hath been (Jericho's catastrophe), it is that which SHALL BE and that which is done is that which SHALL BE DONE" (Eccl. 1:9). Jericho's destruction is a "SIMILITUDE" (Hosea 12:10). The fall of Jericho FORESHADOWS what SHALL BE and typifies an event YET TO OCCUR. God says, "I change not" (Mal. 3:6). He is "the same yesterday, today and forever" (Heb. 13:8).

Parallels Between the Fall of Jericho and the Second Coming

1.) Before Israelites could enter into their inheritance of the "Promised Land," an evil civilization, of which "Jericho" was a part, had to be destroyed. Before the saints can "inherit the earth", and be given their "reward" (Rev. 11:18), "this present evil world" civilization must be destroyed. Jericho was the most impregnable city and fortress in Canaan.

2.) Just as Joshua (Josh. 5:13) led the Israelites, so also our Lord Yeshua (same name: Joshua is Jesus in Hebrew) leads the saints.

3.) Joshua purchased the "Promised Land" and its inhabitants with Israelite blood just as Yeshua purchased the earth and its inhabitants with his own blood.

4.) Both fight against seven enemy nations (Joshua 3:10) led by "the Lord of Righteousness" (Adonizedek -- a blasphemous human) or the Anti-Christ.

5.) Two spies were sent to spy out the land (Josh. 6:22) corresponding to two witnesses (Rev. 11).

6.) Just as the two spies were hidden 3 1/2 days (2:16) so also the two witnesses will be dead for 3 1/2 days (Rev. 11:9).

A Dual Fulfillment

7.) The Israelite soldiers marched around Jericho SILENTLY once per day for six days while seven ram's horn trumpets were blown by seven priests per day (Joshua 6:6-9). Then on the seventh day, seven ram's horn trumpets were blown by seven priests seven times, (within an HOUR?) and at the seventh or LAST Trump, all the people SHOUTED "with a great shout" (6:16,20) and "the wall FELL down flat" (6:20). Then the "people WENT UP" (6:20).

Jericho sat on a MOUND that covered only 8 or 9 acres. A better translation would be that the walls "crumbled upon their foundations." They disintegrated. All the mud bricks collapsed. It was not that the walls teetered and fell down, but that they just simply collapsed. And guess what all those bricks did on the escarpment, which was sheer and plastered so that no foothold could be made? When the bricks fell down, it broke the plaster, and created stairs for them to climb right into the city. They AROSE or WENT UP.

In the same way, Christians traveled around the Roman Empire in SECRET, for fear of persecution, while also spreading Scripture anonymously that witnessed about Yeshua. Then the 1.Goth, 2.Vandal, 3.Hun, 4.Heruli, 5.Arab, 6.Turk and 7.French Revolution TRUMPETS were blown and the Roman Empire FELL. Then true Christians were RAISED in status as Protestant Britain and America AROSE.

More importantly, seven Trumpets (Rev. 8:2) will be blown against the United States. The United States is no longer the innocent and righteous country it once was. We believe 9 Jan 2018 is when the first of seven trumpets may be blown against the United States. See Lesson 68 for more. Just as Emperor Constantine died after a 241-year history of the Roman Empire (96-337), so also America may start to die after a 241-year history of the United States (1776- 2017) -- at the beginning of 2018. It may be more than a coincidence also that there was a 241-day interval between Trump's Presidential Inauguration on 20 Jan 2017 and Rosh HaShanah of 2017 (21 Sep) if we assign 30 days to each month. See Lesson 56 for more.

On 19 Jan 2018 the first of seven Trumpets were blown -- Donald Trump's first full day as president was foretold by a red radius lunar trumpet on 21 Jan 2018. One year later: Trump's border wall prototypes pass tests by military special forces" (19 Jan 2018). "In exchange for strong DACA protections, I reluctantly put the border wall on the table for discussions," Shumer said (19 Jan 2018). This may be the bottom red bar on the bird cage and/or the first purple rope tied around Virgo's waist and arms (Rev. 18). Ron Paul has asked whether the border wall is intended to keep terrorists out, or to "keep us in" as one form of "capital controls" (7 Sept 2011). "A border fence might be used to keep Americans from fleeing to Mexico, or something" he said (8 Sep 2011). One hundred miles in from the border is a Constitution-free zone. That is why "Babylon is FALLEN, is FALLEN" (Rev. 18:2) twice. Rome in Revelation chapter 17; America in Revelation chapter 18.

The saints may soon RISE in a resurrection at the last trump (1 Cor. 15:52) -- which may occur on March 21. See Lesson 69 for more. At this point, when true Christians, the "salt of the earth" (Matt. 5:13), are removed from the earth, the kingdoms of this world will become putrid like a dead rotting carcass. The United States will then degenerate like Jericho. Eight years later, this army of saints and angels may invade (Rev. 19:14; Matt. 24:31) after perhaps circling earth seven times. Another trumpet will sound -- the "Great Trump" (Matt. 24:29-31). Our Lord Yeshua "will return from the wedding" (Luke 12:36). But "when the Son of man cometh, shall he find (the) faith (the true religion) on the earth" (Luke 18:8)?

Revelation 11:15-16 says, "Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices [SHOUTING] in heaven, saying, "The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ (Yeshua), and He shall reign forever and ever!"

We have to see ourselves in the place of the Israelite soldiers, whether we are vanguard or rear guard. I would have to say that knowing the times that we are living in, we are the rear guard. We are the end of the procession down through history. The apostles and prophets, and those who came in the first century—those were the vanguard. They set the stage, and we are bringing up the rear. We are last.

We have been instructed to march, pretty much in silence throughout the seven days, throughout our lives. We do not fight, we do not yell and scream. But, we simply walk around in faith until our Joshua gives us the command to shout—to join in the joyous announcement of His Appearing. And then, even we, changed into spirit—immortal—ready to fight alongside God—will watch in awe as He miraculously defeats our enemy, and gives us our inheritance in the kingdom of God.


By Grace Are You Saved

8.) Deuteronomy 9:4-5 says, "Do not think in your heart, after the Lord your God has cast them out before you, saying, 'Because of my righteousness the Lord has brought me in to possess this land'; but it is because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord is driving them out from before you. It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations that the Lord your God drives them out from before you, and that He may fulfill the word which the Lord swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob." In the same way, we read "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Eph. 2:8-9).

God-Fearers Small and Great Also Get A Reward

9.) God gave Joshua and Israel "REST" and possession of Palestine after six days of marching around Jericho (Josh. 22:4) just as Jesus gives us the Millenial REST and the world (Matt. 5:5; Heb. 4:9-10) after 6000 years of quietly witnessing, and being ignored by an evil civilization.

10.) Just as those inhabitants were spared who trusted in an oath based on a red cord in their window (2:18; 6:17) waiting for Joshua's invasion, so also those inhabitants of earth will be spared who trust in Yeshua's blood sacrifice waiting for Yeshua's return (Matt 25:31-41).

Those who were interested in Judaism were called God-fearers. They were not ones who had been circumcised yet, or had completely come into Judaism as proselytes, but ones who were close to the next step that would make them full members of Judaism. They just had not quite done it yet. God-fearers will get their reward also. God will "give reward" to them "that fear thy name small and great" (Rev. 11:18).
That sounds like Rahab and her family. She had done what a God-fearer would do. She had hidden the spies, and followed their instructions to the letter. She specifically says that she feared God, and she knew that He was going to win; that Israel was going to come in and take the land (Josh. 2:9-13). She believed. So not only are the saints and the prophets, and all the others given their rewards, but even those who feared God, both small and great. Rahab was no great person. She was a harlot. But her faith is noted.

11.) Just as the wealth of Jericho was to be destroyed or donated to the purpose of God, so "the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be gathered together: Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance" (Zech. 14:14) and used by the nation of Israel.

Shofars of Jubilee

The "trumpets of ram's horns" (6:4) is an incorrect translation. The literal rendering should be, "shofars of jubilee." A shofar is a ram's horn. Why not just say, "ram's horns of jubilee," which would have been correct? These are the same trumpets that are blown to announce the Jubilee every fifty years.

Go to Leviticus 25:8-12. Here we see that the blowing of the trumpets was not just about announcing plagues of God's judgment on Jericho, but also announced the jubilee.

Leviticus 25:8 says, "And you shall count seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years; and the time of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years."

Leviticus 25:9-12 says, "Then you shall cause the trumpet of the Jubilee [the same phrase in Joshua 6] to sound on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the Day of Atonement you shall make the trumpet to sound throughout all your land. And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall RETURN TO HIS POSSESSION, and each of you shall return to his family. That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field.

12.) Israel inherited the land. That is one big part of the jubilee year—everyone goes back to his inheritance. No matter what had happened in the intervening time, you get back what is yours by right. That is the same thing that happens in the Millennium. The inheritance goes to those to whom it has been given—the saints of God.
