June 24, 2012:                             “Circling your Promise!”

Sun AM Worship             

Text: Josh 5:13-6:20 (King James Version)         

    “Father, I am your servant, willing and desiring to be used to bless your people .”

                                       The Fields are white and the laborers are few!
C.H. Spurgeon said, “If God does not save a man by truth he certainly will not save them by lies, and if the old gospel is not competent to work a revival, then we will do without the revival;”

 

ILL.- I love the old story about a Guy who went to preacher to make a confession. He said to him, “I must confess a great sin in my life.” He said, “What is it?” He said, “It’s the sin of pride. I stand in front of my mirror and admire my beauty for hours on end.” The preacher replied, “Sir, your sin is not the sin of pride. IT’S THE SIN OF THE IMAGINATION!”

13 And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?

14 And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the Lord am I now come. And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto him, What saith my lord unto his servant?

15 And the captain of the Lord's host said unto Joshua, Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.

6 Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in.

2 And the Lord said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.

3 And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days.

4 And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams' horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets.

5 And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.

6 And Joshua the son of Nun called the priests, and said unto them, Take up the ark of the covenant, and let seven priests bear seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the Lord.

7 And he said unto the people, Pass on, and compass the city, and let him that is armed pass on before the ark of the Lord.

8 And it came to pass, when Joshua had spoken unto the people, that the seven priests bearing the seven trumpets of rams' horns passed on before the Lord, and blew with the trumpets: and the ark of the covenant of the Lord followed them.

9 And the armed men went before the priests that blew with the trumpets, and the rearward came after the ark, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.

10 And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout.

11 So the ark of the Lord compassed the city, going about it once: and they came into the camp, and lodged in the camp.

12 And Joshua rose early in the morning, and the priests took up the ark of the Lord.

13 And seven priests bearing seven trumpets of rams' horns before the ark of the Lord went on continually, and blew with the trumpets: and the armed men went before them; but the rearward came after the ark of the Lord, the priests going on, and blowing with the trumpets.

14 And the second day they compassed the city once, and returned into the camp: so they did six days.

15 And it came to pass on the seventh day, that they rose early about the dawning of the day, and compassed the city after the same manner seven times: only on that day they compassed the city seven times.

16 And it came to pass at the seventh time, when the priests blew with the trumpets, Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord hath given you the city.

17 And the city shall be accursed, even it, and all that are therein, to the Lord: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.

18 And ye, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.

19 But all the silver, and gold, and vessels of brass and iron, are consecrated unto the Lord: they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.

20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.KJV

 

Let’s pray. Father,  Open my eyes so I can see Your truth.  

Open my ears so I can hear Your voice. Open my mind so I can understand Your Word.
And open my heart so I may receive all that You want me to receive. AMEN

 

Num 23:19 “States” God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good? KJV

 

The Children of Israel were at an impasse on the Plains of Jericho. They were not able to go any farther because God had stopped them in the Plains of Jericho in Joshua 5:13-15

The Commander of the Lord’s Army appeared before Joshua & told him... "Take your sandal off your foot, for the place where you stand is holy. And Joshua did so.

The first glimpse of Jericho must have been awe-inspiring & frightening at the same time. The closer they got the smaller they felt.

They began to realize what it meant while seeing this great walled city of how a generation before them felt like grasshoppers causing them to fail to enter the Promised Land!

A 6’ wide lower wall & 50’ high upper wall encircled the city. It was so thick & tall the city seemed to be an impenetrable fortress! In the Natural sense, It seemed that God had promised something impossible & His battle plan was absolutely nonsensical:

“Your entire army is to march around the city once a day for 6 days. On the 7th day you are to march around the city 7 times.”

The soldiers must have been wondering why not use a battering ram? Why not scale the walls? Why not cut off the water supply or shoot flaming arrows over the walls? But God told them to “SILENTLY CIRCLE THE CITY!” And He promised , they circled 13 times over 7 days, the Wall would fall!

The last day of their so-called siege started early! The 1st time around the soldiers seen the praise team of God circling this monstrosity the must have thought to themselves how “SILLY & STUPID is this!” Have you ever felt “SILLY & STUPID” over something that God told you to do!

But with each circling of their promise, their stride grew longer & stronger ! Each circle a Holy Confidence was building pressure inside their souls! By the 7th day, their faith was ready to pop!

In keeping with God’s command they had done what was told them without uttering a sound for 7 days! The silently “CIRCLED THE PROMISE!” Then the Priest sounded their horns and a simultaneous shout followed. 600,000 Israelis raised their voices in a Holy Roar & the walls came tumbling down for their Victory!

IF YOU KEEP CIRCLING THE PROMISE, GOD WILL ULTIMATELY DELIVER ON IT!

You keep “CIRCLING or PRAYING” until God gives you what “HE” wants & wills for your life! Understand something about the “POWER OF PRAYER!” The more you “PRAY” the clearer the picture becomes till you see in the “CLARITY” that God sees! In doing so you begin to see & understand & want what He wants & wills!

James 5:13-18

13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.

14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

KJV


The “CIRCLING / PRAYING” is all part & parcel of “IDENTIFYING YOUR JERICHO!” If you don’t “IDENTIFY YOUR JERICHO” you will not know what to pray for our about! Therefore a “FRUSTRATION” could set in on your spirit that could ultimate destroy your relationship with Jesus, you & your soul! Because you won’t be seeing in God’s “CLARITY” for His will for your life!

Prayer “EVOLVES” with time! That’s why God holds the answer till you’re ready for the answer! That’s why God says “WAIT” so much of the time! It’s not because He’s waiting for the right moment all the time but much of the time He’s waiting on “YOU!”
You may say that you’re ready but your “PRAYERS & ACTIONS” prove otherwise!
Many of our prayers seem to go unanswered but it only appears that way! God always answers prayer ! We just have to know the heart of God  in order to know the promises of God on what to pray for!

James 4:3 tells us profoundly that...

“You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures.”

He answers all Prayers that are “HIS WILL, HIS WAY & IN HIS TIME!” The greatest of these #3 is “IN HIS TIME!” WHY? I’m glad you asked! You can’t receive from God in the “WRONG STATE & FRAME OF MIND!” So your “CIRCLING / PRAYING” is critical in the “PREPARING OF YOUR MIND!”

As a Child of God, He only gives us One Option and that Option is not to retreat. Its to surrender!

 

2 Cor 1:18-20

18 But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.

19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, even by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.

20 For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. KJV

 

Matt 7:7-11

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?KJV

 

Luke 18:1-8

And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;

2 Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man:

3 And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.

4 And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man;

5 Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me.

6 And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith.

7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?

8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? KJV

 

You need to... DEFINE YOUR GOAL...CLAIM YOUR PROMISE...SPELL YOUR MIRACLE!

What is your “GREATEST NEED?” Some things will define it for you! “HEALTH ISSUES” will define it for your real quick! “FINANCIAL TROUBLES” will define it for your real quick! “MARITAL PROBLEMS” will define it for you real quick! All of these & more will change the “PERSPECTIVE OF NEED!”

Let’s talk about “PERSPECTIVE OF NEED” for a moment! "PERSPECTIVE”
changes with “ATTITUDE!” Understand that “PERSPECTIVE” can be good or bad! “PERSPECTIVE” will always determine “OUTLOOK” on any situation! You “OUTLOOK” is based on your “ATTITUDE!”

Pilots understand “ATTITUDE!” You may think that “ALTITUDE” is the most important aspect of flying but that’s not entirely true! You can have plenty of “ALTITUDE” but without the right “ATTITUDE” & you’ll fall from the sky! “ALTITUDE” is important but “ATTITUDE” is critical!

Promises are spelled many ways this morning! If a loved one is far from God it’s spelled “SALVATION!” “Me and My House!

 

Acts 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.KJV

 

”If a marriage is falling apart is spelled “RECONCILIATION!

” If you’re having financial problems it’s spelled “PROVISION!” “Jehovah Jireh”

 

 If you’re having physical maladies then it’s spelled “HEALING!” “Jehovah Rapha”

Ex 15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. KJV


Hebrews 11:6
If you keep circling the promise, God will ultimately deliver on it!

Heb 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. KJV

 

Heb 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. KJV


Matt 18:18-20

18 Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. KJV
