Introduction

A person’s past does not have to determine their destiny. If a person wants to move forward, he/she cannot remain in their past. A word of wisdom to the saints who are surrounded by people who always remind you of your negative past when you have moved forward into God’s destiny for you, ignore those people who don’t have your best interest in mind. The purpose of this message is to encourage each of us to know that God is a God of grace and mercy. We need to understand that God is a covenant God! God honors His word!

As we study about this “bad for a season” bad girl — Rahab — we will see how her courage, faith, and obedience was honored by God!

B. Rahab’s Acknowledgement (10)

III. Rahab & the Spies’ Covenant (2:12-22)

God Always Keeps His Word!
