What Type of Soldier Are You? (Joshua 6:1-10)Tommy Boring, May 27, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
If you're a child of God, then you're in a battle. Your position might be different than the next. Most here in this country are patriotic and will fight for our freedoms. However, will you fight for God? There are more listeners than doers for God. If you are a preacher then you need to preach what God gives you and not sugar coat it. If our boss or a general tells us to do something we say yes sir or yes ma'am but when God tells us to do something we want to argue and whine about it. If we were getting paid to do Gods work, would you get a pay check at the end of the week? There are three categories of Christians. There are the armed. These are Christians that are on the front line. These carry the sword of the Spirit and are equipped with the armor of God. We as Christians should defend the Word of God in ALL circumstances. We should be equipped for battle through training. We have training sessions each Sunday morning during Sunday school. We also have training during preaching to teach us how to use our equipment, the armor of God. How often do you sit and try to figure out Gods plan? Another group of Christians is the trumpeters. Christians, ministers, preachers that are telling others that God is on His way. Don't stop sending out the Word as messengers. The third type of Christian is the ones that simple march. Marching is not doing anything but it's being obedient. Following the orders, filling in the gaps so there are no place for the devil to break through. Which Christian are you? Are you even in the battle at all?

1Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. 2And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. 3And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. 4And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. 5And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. 6And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the LORD. 7And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the LORD. 8And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the LORD, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the LORD followed them. 9And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rereward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets. 10And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.
