Israel hath sinned, and they have also transgressed My Covenant which I commanded them: for THEY HAVE even TAKEN of the accursed thing, AND HAVE ALSO STOLEN, AND DISSEMBLED (deceived), also, and they have put it even among their own stuff. Therefore the children of Israel could not stand before their enemies, but turned their backs before their enemies, because they were accursed: NEITHER WILL I BE WITH YOU any more, EXCEPT YE DESTROY THE ACCURSED FROM among YOU. And Joshua said unto Achan, My son, give, I pray thee, glory to the Lord God of Israel, and MAKE CONFESSION unto Him; and tell me now what thou hast done; hide it not from me. And Achan answered Joshua, and said, INDEED I HAVE SINNED against the Lord God of Israel, and thus and thus have I done: And Joshua, and all Israel with him, took Achan the son of Zerah, and the silver, and the garment, and the wedge of gold, and his sons, and his daughters, and his oxen, and his asses, and his sheep, and his tent, and all that he had: and they brought them unto the valley of Achor. And Joshua said, Why hast thou troubled us? the Lord shall trouble thee this day. And all Israel stoned him with stones, and burned them with fire, after they had stoned them with stones. Joshua 7:11-12,19-20,24-25. Yes, this was Old Testament Justice for unrepentant sinners who refused to Obey the Lord. Sinner, examine yourself, Repent, Confess your sins to the Lord, cry out to Christ for Mercy, that in His Grace you may Be Saved, before you die in your sins with torment in the flames of Hell. Call on Christ and walk in His Forgiveness, He wants you to Be Saved and Forever Walk with Him, to FOREVER, Be Blessed.
