After they had gone, she tied the scarlet cord to the window: read Josh 2;

Two men protected by Rahab because of her faith in their God Yaweh, gave her scarlet cord to identify herself in the presence of danger at the time of Israeli attack on Jericho, her city. Rahab tied the scarlet cord on the window she had let them escape. It was the sign of her alliance with invading Israeli forces!

What could we observe about Rahab’s heart from the way she tied the scarlet cord to the window? See also Josh 24:15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”

What significance could we observe about the covenant/promise? Gen 17:10-11 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you.

What could we observe the way those Hebrew people embraced Rahab regardless of her background? See also Ruth 3:10-11 “The LORD bless you, my daughter,” he replied. “This kindness is greater than that which you showed earlier: You have not run after the younger men, whether rich or poor. And now, my daughter, don’t be afraid. I will do for you all you ask. All my fellow townsmen know that you are a woman of noble character.

What is the Lord saying to you about your confession/testimony for the Lord Jesus in life?

How do you want to follow Rahab’s example?
