Joshua 2:12-21 - When destruction came to the city of Jericho, the scarlet cord was the only thing that saved Rahab and her family.
The scarlet cord is symbolic of the blood of Jesus Christ.
The only thing that saves us is the blood of Jesus.
Hollywood can't harm us if we don't let them into our homes.
Rahab could ask for many things, but she asked for her family to be saved.
We want our family to be saved more than anything else in this world.
If you want your family to be saved, you do something about it. Tie the Scarlet cord in your household. Make it permanent, make it strong!
Make sure your family is in church.
“Now therefore, I beg you, swear to me by the LORD, since I have shown you kindness, that you also will show kindness to my father’s house, and give me a true token, and spare my father, my mother, my brothers, my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death.” So the men answered her, “Our lives for yours, if none of you tell this business of ours. And it shall be, when the LORD has given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with you.” Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the city wall; she dwelt on the wall. And she said to them, “Get to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you. Hide there three days, until the pursuers have returned. Afterward you may go your way.” So the men said to her: “We will be blameless of this oath of yours which you have made us swear, unless, when we come into the land, you bind this line of scarlet cord in the window through which you let us down, and unless you bring your father, your mother, your brothers, and all your father’s household to your own home. So it shall be that whoever goes outside the doors of your house into the street, his blood shall be on his own head, and we will be guiltless. And whoever is with you in the house, his blood shall be on our head if a hand is laid on him. And if you tell this business of ours, then we will be free from your oath which you made us swear.” Then she said, “According to your words, so be it.” And she sent them away, and they departed. And she bound the scarlet cord in the window.” (Joshua 2:12-21 NKJV)
I Timothy 6:12 - The good fight of faith is the fight worth fighting.
“Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.” (I Timothy 6:12 NKJV)
Lesson 1: Your family can be saved regardless of your past.
Rahab was a prostitute. She was morally unfit. She was running a brothel, not a hotel.
Despite her background, the scarlet cord allowed her to be saved.
