Rahab

Posted by Lizzy Armentrout on June 17, 2010 at 9:55 AM

As I was reading through the book of Joshua this morning, I came to the account of Rahab the harlot.  Remember her? This is the lady who was courageous enough to hide two spies on the top of her home and provide subterfuge for them.  Then asked to be spared from whatever the Israelites were going to do to her city because she had already heard of their Lord's power. 


I love this account (Notice I'm not calling it a story---this actually happened, so it's an historical account) of how God once again uses a woman to accomplish His plan.  Not only a woman, but a HARLOT! Wow!! Here again we see God using the foolish things of the world to confound the wise! I doubt that any of us would choose a harlot to accomplish a great plan, but isn't that how our awesome God works?  I'm so thankful too because none of us, including me, are worthy to be used by our Creator!  I think we should change Rahab's title from "Rahab the harlot" to "Rahab the soulwinner."  I find it interesting that Rahab not only had faith to put the red cord out of her window so that she would be saved from destruction...BUT HER FAMILY was also saved.   Think about that a minute.  Think of the time period.  Did men in the family usually listen to the women?  Nope.  But somehow, someway Rahab convinced her whole family that all they had to do was put a red piece of material out of a window to stay safe from the feared Israelites.  My imagination can just hear those conversations around the dinner table!  "But, Rahab, how is a red piece of cord going to save us?"

     "I don't know; but that's what the men said and I believe it!"

     "It sounds nuts to us...you know we're going to be the talk of Jericho!"

     "I don't care! I'm going to do it.  If you want to be saved from destruction then you'd better believe it too and be here in the room where the red cord is."


    Hmmm....sounds a little like soulwinning, doesn't it?  Now you see why I think her title should be changed.  What a soulwinner!  She didn't just convince one family member---she convinced all of them!  What faith she had! Oh that I would be more like Rahab!
