The conquest of Jericho begins with the strategic actions of two spies who enter the city to observe it . it seems as if their choice of a prostitute’s house for the mission is a human decision.

The greatest desire of those who serve God is the everyone is saved.

This desire is reflected in their arduous work of evangelization to reach the lost and also in their constant prayers. It is impossible to be a partaker of the Kingdom of God and His gifts and, at the same time, be oblivious to the suffering and spiritual blindness of the vast majority of people in this world.

Early in the morning. The Jordan was the only obstacle separating the people from the promise. Facing it head-on was the only was to reach the other side. But there were no bridges or boats, much less any possibility of going around the river.
