Chapter six of the Book of Joshua tells us how the walls of Jericho fell down flat for the children of Israel to go in and take over the city. They didn’t need cranes or heavy-duty equipment to crumble the walls; they did it with a shout!
Read the inspiring account in Joshua 6:2-5; they had wanted to go into Jericho, but the wall prevented them, for they were too high and too thick. However, God gave them an instruction. He didn’t instruct them to pray, or beg. All He asked them to do was to march around the wall without saying anything, and then give a shout at the appointed time. What followed was breathtaking: the walls fell down flat.
There’s something about our shout in the Holy Ghost; it’s not ordinary. When people haven’t received the Holy Spirit, that’s when things like this mystify them. If you go to a church where they never shout, something is surely missing: it’s the power of the Holy Ghost. Once the Holy Ghost gets anywhere, the shout of a king is there; He announces His presence.
Recall what happened on the day of Pentecost: the day the Holy Spirit began His dispensation with the Church. The Bible says, “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting” (Acts 2:2). Notice the description: the sound was as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. The Holy Spirit announced His presence with a loud sound! Were they quiet afterwards? No!
Acts 2:4 says, “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” When the Holy Ghost comes into your life, irrespective of how quiet you were before, it makes no difference; you can’t be quiet anymore. I don’t mean to say you become loquacious; I’m talking about the power of the Spirit stirred in you to shout and affirm the Word with boldness. It’s not a shout of pandemonium or fright, but the shout of a king; the victory shout!
