“HE WILL NOT GIVE UP ON YOU
My first journalism class in the year 2000, had the most unusual opening lines by my lecturer the late Mr. Kamau, who had a stolidly calm disposition.
He walked briskly into a noisy class of around 40 students and with eyes darting around like an astonished fish, asked, “What is news?” puzzled looks on our faces ushered in quietude.
The outspoken in class tried hard to impress but he quickly jumped in with an answer and said “When a dog bites a man it’s not news. When a man bites a dog, that’s news.” “Aaaaaaaaaa!” we all beamed with excitement and jotted down the first wonder of journalism.
Interrupting our light bulb moment, he asked another question, “What are the sources of news?” hands shot up with varying answers. However, our sober and innocent minds got corrupted by his answer. He said the best place to source for news was in a bar or a brothel.
I thought he was a pervert, but years later, I think his statement can be vindicated by the story of what one woman did to save herself and her family. She lived as a prostitute and became a news source during the first great conquest recorded in history.
Rahab, a young Canaanite harlot ran a tavern that was located on the wall of the city of Jericho. The address to her house was so convenient for people to walk in and leave the city.
Being the lowest city in the world also meant the hot desert climate forced her to dress minimaly. Rahab took advantage of the weather. She accentuated her body which had become her tool of trade with a hot weather wardrobe that attracted politicians, security officers, merchants and traders.
Jericho was deep into idol worship. The pagan city played host to the vilest and most wretched ways of men.
But behind the walls of Rahab’s harlotry escapades was a class in session.
40,000 strong men across the border were learning the art of war from their young commander. Joshua, a protégé of Moses, was well trained in the art of intelligence gathering.
He knew a good military strategy must first seek information on its target and he chose two men to become his spies in Jericho before they attacked.
The first Mossad team of two, sneaked into the heavily fortified walled city and lodged at Rahab’s joint.
Now, Rahab was intelligent, well informed and very perceptive. She knew the politics of Jericho and had insight into what Israel had done to the Egyptians, how they crossed the red sea and their planned invasion of Canaan. She knew she was smack in the middle of a battle and these two spies held the keys to her redemption.
She didn’t know the trade that had imprisoned her for years was a catalyst for a collision course with destiny. Her faith in a God she only heard of through stories of astounding miracles was about to set her free from bondage.
Her true identity was about to come forth.
Rahab saved the two Israelite spies from capture when Jericho’s counter-intelligence team came knocking – Joshua 2:3-24, She helped a nation go to war and win it, saved herself, her family and secured her future. She was the least likely to be used by God but she was chosen.
She was filthy but grace covered her past.
She felt insignificant but purpose gave her a position.
She was not worthy but mercy embraced her.
She was an outcast with men but an incast with God.
She was a sinner but forgiveness refused to count how many men she had slept with.
Her faithfulness in protecting God’s interest placed her in the faith hall of fame.
Even in her wicked, immoral ways, God didn’t give up on her and God can never give up on you. Rahab felt that nudge that there was something better on the other side. She felt like a doormat but pushed her faith to be received up by two men who became her unusual clients.
It is not too late for God to use you, forgive you, bless you and elevate you.
From ratchetness to faithfulness, Rahab became the mother of Boaz, who married Ruth from whose son, Obed, Jesse the father of David came, through whose line Jesus was born.
God never gives up on anyone. Don’t give up on yourself.”
