“And 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.” Joshua 6:10
Wow! Just reading this scripture makes me burst out in tongues. It is loaded with revelation on how to offer sacrifice of joy. Beloved, are you in a battle right now? Have your enemies encamped around you making boasts to bring you down? Well, never worry, for many are the affliction of the righteous but the Lord delivers us out of all of them. The people of God faced the same situation with Jericho. The bible says that Jericho was straightly shut up so that no man came in or went out. The children of Israel had a mandate to take that city so they needed to get in at all cost. The Lord told them to March around the city daily and on the seventh give a sacrifice of shouts. Shouting here refers to triumph, joy, singing, loud noise. They shouted and the walls came crashing down. This is what you don’t know; giving shouts, making loud noises was the way the bible tells us that our fathers took victory from their enemies.
David said in Psalm 27:6, “And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.” It is a powerful offering you can bring to the Lord. Your mouth is a weapon of destruction. It is so powerful that Joshua told the people of Israel not to talk or make any noise until the 7th day when he would give the command to shout. Beloved, your voice is powerful when all its audacity and anointing is used in shouting or singing unto the Lord when trouble looms and enemies abound. You may not feel like singing due to afflictions, but know that when you do so, spiritual forces are mobilized to scatter and destroy your enemies. After they shouted and made loud noises of joy unto the Lord, the mighty fortified city walls fell down flat. When all has failed, or you’re in dire straits, offer sacrifices of shouts of joy like a triumphant champion unto the Lord, and leave the rest for Adonai.
Joshua 6:1-end, Psalm 27:1-6
My son’s wife called me and told me she was having complications in her pregnancy. She told me that a witch woman told her that she would not put to bed. I brought her to church and she was prayed for. I also gave her the blood of Jesus to pray with and apply. It happened in January so I also paid Firstfruit to block any means the enemy might use as an access. January did not pass and she put to bed safely. Praise God.
