The Walls of Jericho

September 11, 2018:  Today, we remember a great tragedy.  We mourn the dead and honor their memory.  We give thanks for the emergency responders who ran towards the disaster and did what they could to save lives, some losing their own lives in the process.  We are thankful for our military who is doing their best to keep the battle in the middle east instead of allowing it to come to our shores once again.

Regardless of what you believe about how those buildings were brought down, I will tell you I personally believe that Islamic terrorists hijacked some jet airplanes and crashed them into those buildings, and the buildings collapsed.

Oh, but the conspiracy theorists will say that: 

"...it is impossible for that alone to cause those buildings to collapse. The gubment planted charges in those buildings and brought them down on purpose."

So let me tell you another impossible story from the book of Joshua:

"The Walls of Jericho"

"…And the LORD said to Joshua, “Behold, I have delivered Jericho and its king and fighting men into your hands. March around the city with all the men of war, circling the city one time. Do this for six days. Have seven priests carry seven trumpets of rams' horns in front of the ark. Then on the seventh day, march around the city seven times, while the priests blow the trumpets... And when there is a long blast of the ram's horn and you hear its sound, have all the people give a mighty shout. Then the wall of the city will collapse, and the people will go up, each man straight ahead.” 

You know what? They did just as they were commanded, and the wall around the city of Jericho fell.

"So when the trumpets sounded, the people shouted. When they heard the blast of the trumpet, the people gave a great shout, and the wall collapsed. The people charged into the city, each man straight ahead, and captured the city.…:"

If our Lord God, who does indeed sometimes let bad things happen to us, can cause the walls of the great city to fall simply from a great shout and the blast of trumpets, do you not think that He is mighty enough to cause buildings to fall?

God woke us up that day. Now we have gone back to sleep. What will it take to wake us up again? 

And stop telling these ridiculous conspiracy stories.  You are dishonoring our dead by doing so.
