The Lord told Israel to march around the city of Jericho once a day for six days, but on the seventh day, He wanted more done,
But it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early, about the dawning of the day, and marched around the city seven times in the same manner. On that day only they marched around the city seven times. And the seventh time it happened, when the priests blew the trumpets, that Joshua said to the people: “Shout, for the LORD has given you the city!” (Joshua 6.15, 16).
The seventh day, seven times that day, and at the seventh time around the city, the Lord wanted the priests to blow their trumpets and for the people to shout, and shout they did, for it brought the walls down!
You will never hear of another army doing such a thing, and if they tried, it would not work, because the marching, the trumpet-blowing, and the shouting did not bring the walls of Jericho down, the Lord did, but He did not do it until the people obeyed Him!
