We are about to come to the end of Rahab’s revelation. Joshua 2:21 gives a profound Old Testament utterance to New Testament truth. In response to the instructions given by the two spies to Rahab, she declared, according to your words, so be it. This is the ultimate affirmation that brings blessing. I will do what the Word declares, and I do not have to understand it, reason it out, or rationalize it. I will do it in obedience and wait on the results. Just think of Rahab’s part in this chapter. She opposed the king of Jericho; she ushered the spies into an opposite direction away from danger; she displayed the scarlet thread identifying herself with God’s people; she brought her family into her house. Rahab, the unfortunate reject of Jericho, possessed this mighty faith in the midst of the most perilous circumstances, and became a link in the ancestry of Jesus Christ. She became a type of all Gentile sinners who can come in to this saving, protecting relationship with God by obedience to His Word.
