Bishop T.D. Jakes shares this sermon titled “The Power to Stop”. The text for the message is from Joshua 5:1–15. “Now when all the Amorite Kings west of the Jordan and all the Canaanite Kings along the coast heard how the Lord had dried up the Jordan before the Israelites until they had crossed over, their hearts melted in fear, and they no longer had the courage to face the Israelites.”
Bishop Jakes teaches us in this sermon about the power to stop and why we have to understand it. When the Amorite Kings look at how everything is put into perspective, Because of what God did at the Jordan River at that time, the Lord said to Joshua, “Make flint knives and circumcise the Israelites again.” So Joshua made flint knives, ooh, it hurts to read this, and circumcised the Israelites, saying Kabir Hareloff. Now this is why he did it. All those who came out of Egypt were men of military age who died in the wilderness on the way after leaving Egypt. All the people that came out had been circumcised, but all the people born in the wilderness during the journey from Egypt had not. We get a lot of things done, but that doesn’t mean that God is totally pleased. Just because you have progress doesn’t mean that God has pleasure because you are moving, but you’re moving in an uncircumcised fashion, and sooner or later it’s going to catch up to you, and God says, “I’ve got to fix this before you cross over into your ultimate sacrifice. The whole nation had been circumcised; they remained where they were in camp until they were healed. Isn’t it funny how God will stop everything for you to get healed? God doesn’t want you to serve bleeding, serving wounded; God wants you to be healed and to recover so that he can get the fullness out of your life. The Lord said to Joshua today, I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you. The reproach is the residue of the curse of Egypt.
