  • SILENT PRAYERS OF

    THANKSGIVING AND CONFESSION

    THE ASSURANCE OF PARDON

    Daniel 9:9

    Even though we have

    sinned against Him,

    the Lord our God

    is merciful and forgiving.

  • ‘O HOW HE LOVES YOU AND ME’ (Praising God for the forgiveness of our sins)

    O how He loves you and me!

    O how He loves you and me!

    He gave His life;

    What more could He give?

    O how He loves you!

    O how He loves me!

    O how He loves you and me!

  • Jesus to Calvary did go;

    His love for sinners to show.

    What He did there

    brought hope from despair.

    O how He loves you!

    O how He loves me!

    O how He loves you and me!

  • A TIME OF SHARING WITH

    GOD’S CHILDREN

    OF ALL AGES

  • THE HEBREW SCRIPTURE

    Joshua 2:1-21 Read by Roxanne VanDyke

    Joshua son of Nun secretly sent two spies from Shittim.

    “Go, look over the land,” he said, “especially Jericho.”

    So they went and entered the house of a prostitute

    named Rahab and stayed there. The king of Jericho was

    told, “Look, some of the Israelites have come here

    tonight to spy out the land.”

    So the king of Jericho sent this message to Rahab:

    “Bring out the men who came to you and entered your

    house, because they have come to spy out the whole

    land.”

  • But Rahab had taken the two men and hidden them. She

    said, “Yes, the men came to me, but I did not know where

    they had come from. At dusk, when it was time to close

    the city gate, they left. I don’t know which way they went.

    Go after them quickly. You may catch up with them.” (But

    she had taken them up to the roof and hidden them under

    the stalks of flax she had laid out on the roof.)

    So the men set out in pursuit of the spies on the road

    that leads to the fords of the Jordan, and as soon as the

    pursuers had gone out, the gate was shut. Before the

    spies lay down for the night, she went up on the roof and

    said to them, “I know that the LORD has given you this

    land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us,so that

    all who live in this country are melting in fear because of

    you.

  • We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the

    Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what

    you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites

    east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed.

    When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and

    everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord

    your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.

    Now then, please swear to me by the LORD that you will

    show kindness to my family, because I have shown

    kindness to you. Give me a sure sign that you will spare

    the lives of my father and mother, my brothers and

    sisters, and all who belong to them — and that you will

    save us from death.”

    “Our lives for your lives!” the men assured her.

  • “If you don’t tell what we are doing, we will treat you

    kindly and faithfully when the Lord gives us the land.”

    So she let them down by a rope through the window, for

    the house she lived in was part of the city wall. She said

    to them, “Go to the hills so the pursuers will not find

    you. Hide yourselves there three days until they return,

    and then go on your way.”

    Now the men had said to her, “This oath you made us

    swear will not be binding on us unless, when we enter

    the land, you have tied this scarlet cord in the window

    through which you let us down, and unless you have

    brought your father and mother, your brothers and all

    your family into your house. If any of them go outside

    your house into the street, their blood will be on their

    own heads; we will not be responsible.

  • As for those who are in the house with you, their blood

    will be on our head if a hand is laid on them. But if you

    tell what we are doing, we will be released from the oath

    you made us swear. ” “Agreed,” she replied. “Let it be as

    you say.” So she sent them away, and they departed. And

    she tied the scarlet cord in the window.

  • THE SONG OF PREPARATION

    ‘WE WORSHIP AND ADORE YOU’

    We worship and adore You,

    Bowing down before You,

    Songs of praises singing,

    Hallelujahs ringing,

    Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

    Hallelujah, AMEN.

    (Please Repeat)

    Keeping Our Promises

    Rev. Dr. Daniel Herlein Bayshore Gardens Community Church

  • The leaders of Jericho were shrewd and

    excellent military strategists

  • Rahab had to make a firm

    irreversible CHOICE:

    No gray area

    No fence sitting

    No time for

    procrastinating

    Flax

  • JOSHUA 2:8

    Before the spies lay down for the night,

    Rahab went up on the roof

    and said to the spies,

    “I KNOW that the LORD

    has given this land to you.”

    The Hebrew word in verse 9,

    translated in the English “I know,”

    is the Hebrew word “Yada.”

  • THE SCARLET THREAD

    REMINDS US THAT

    (1) Our personal faith in God through Jesus

    Christ is our only true security and not the walls

    that we build

    (2) Nothing in this life can separate us from

    God’s love, grace, and presence with us

    (3) The blood line of redemption runs from the

    beginning of the Bible, through every chapter

    and verse, to the last inspired Word of Scripture
