POSITIONING FOR DIVINE VISITATION
By faith the harlot Rehab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace. Hebrews 11:31 KJV.
When the nation of Israel crossed the Jordan into Canaan,Jericho was the first place to be conquered. So, Joshua sent out two spies who came into the house of Rehab the harlot. When the king of Jericho knew of it, he sent soldiers to capture the spies but Rehab hid them and distracted the soldiers. God sent the spies into the house of the prostitute to protect them. Some of us will probably say; God, that cannot be, you have made a mistake, how can sanctified people go and stay with a prostitute!
Beloved, grace overrules our flaws. Grace overrules our mistakes. That is why you cannot write off anyone who is still breathing and is still sitting under the word of God. God already knew that Rehab will be used. Notice what she said: …..I know that the Lord hath given you the land, and your terror is fallen upon us and that all inhabitants of the land faint because of you (Joshua 2:9KJV). In the entire land, how come it was only a prostitute that knew that God had given the land to His covenant people? She was sensitive enough to know. All other people did not know. How sensitive are you to the things of the kingdom and to the things of God. If you are not sensitive, you stand the risk of missing your moment of visitation.
Eventually, Rehab negotiated her deliverance, not only for herself, but for her entire family. She was positioned for her deliverance. When the Israelites eventually attacked Jericho, Rehab was brought out. Why? Positioning! She was positioned for divine visitation. Others died but she came out. I declare to you today that the wind that will kill others will not touch you. The flood that will destroy other people will not come near your life. This year you will testify in Jesus name.
