Saw Covet and Took. This is the travel of all sin. We see it, and covet it. Then we take it. It can be anything from adultery to stealing. Achan saw it, coveted  it, and took it. Then the Lord had Achan, his family, and all his possessions stoned and burned.

To possess our kingdom of God we must arise in violence – not natural violence but spiritual violence. We must find life’s Rahabs to acquire necessary information. You and I must cross the Jordan at flood stage and cross any hindrance attempting to hold us back. We must be circumcised in our hearts and be sensitive to the Word of God and His Spirit. Jericho has walls and they must come down. There will be those who disobey in our ranks, and we must deal with them (Achan). We will lose some battles, but we will learn to win the war. There are so many principles in the Book of Joshua giving us spiritual insights into doing what Caleb did. That was knowing we can say to Jesus, “Give me my mountain.”

Saw Covet and Took Chapter 7 Part 2

Joshua 7:21 When I saw among the spoils a goodly Babylonish garment, and two hundred shekels of silver, and a wedge of gold of fifty shekels weight, then I coveted them, and took them; and, behold, they are hid in the earth in the midst of my tent, and the silver under it.

Genesis 11:9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the LORD did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the LORD scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Joshua 7:22-23

22 So Joshua sent messengers, and they ran unto the tent; and, behold, it was hid in his tent, and the silver under it.
23 And they took them out of the midst of the tent, and brought them unto Joshua, and unto all the children of Israel, and laid them out before the LORD.

Joshua 7:24-26

24 And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor.
25 And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the LORD shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones.
26 And they raised over him a great heap of stones unto this day. So the LORD turned from the fierceness of his anger. Wherefore the name of that place was called, The valley of Achor, unto this day.
