Thank you, Jim and open up your Bibles tomorrow after 5 Mark chapter 5 and I’m going to preach a sermon today and titled. Just believe everybody say just believe: hey, maybe I’ll believe the presence of God is Among Us church and then does the bible tell us. So look at your neighbor and say this to him say you have an anointing just tell them that you have an anointing. Do you know what the Bible says that the spirit of God sets both in the Believers heart and comes upon the spirit, baptize believer? Let me give you a testimony just a moment this morning before we start teaching about the goodness of God and the mercy of God in about how he speaks to his Saints. Just about a week and a half ago, I came down here late at night and I was getting a check, we’re going to purchase a new program for the church and got down here. If I didn’t have keys to get in the door down anywhere and couldn’t find your keys when it’s aggravating, when you get all the way half way across town, you don’t have what she needs. You know so I’m down there banging around in my car. Looking for my keys, my mom calls buddy loves Mom, I don’t you if you don’t love Mom, if you’re, not American, so I picked up my phone and I’m talking to Mama and we got done with our conversation, so I got to go and I hang up The phone, Owensboro Church then I look and two guys come around the corner and they got this girl with them and they all look really drunk. Owensboro Church I mean that’s obvious, I mean, oh, you can spot a drunk for about a hundred yards away. No doubt about it. You see him they’re, drunk and then they’re getting ready to get in the car, and this woman says I hear it. I don’t want to go with you. She tries to get away from him and the guy grabs her and drags her getting real physical with her and tries to Slammer in the car. Now look up there and there’s two guys trying to abduct this woman right in front of me put her in the car. Let me tell you something about the Book of Revelation Book of Revelation says that one of the types of people they will be in the Lake of Fire is the Calvert. You know, God doesn’t like a coward. We say that God doesn’t like a coward, it’s just. He doesn’t like a man, you got to do something, don’t you doesn’t matter what it cost you got to do something play the two guys I’ve been drinking, I think. Well, here goes. I guess we’re going to have one heck of a fist fight. I don’t know. What’S going to happen, but I can’t let them take this woman, so I’m down here by myself in the dark with two guys, and so I go up in front of my say: wait a minute guys. I mean the okay just take this. While you got to let her go and the one guy, I know it’s coming, it’s just on the one guy turns around and puts both his hands up in the air. He just going to start to backup. My wife is expecting something different than that. He says these words to me. He says: look man she’s my wife and she’s crazy. Owensboro Church You know I’m just trying to get her home, but the woman would give me no indication that she was indeed his wife. Owensboro Church All she would do is say get away from me. Leave me alone to the run in there fighting all this end of the guy says he put his hands up, he says just call the cops. It looks with other guys, that’s called my family and tell him I’m in jail, and I thought what a strange actions, let me know, God can help you get out of some things. Amen, amen. His wisdom is better than the weapons of warfare, and then I say when going anywhere good and another friend came around the corner. The Lord sent him Bob Evans came around the corner and Bob had to call the police and the police came and took this lady away. She needed to be taken away, she’s going to hurt herself or somebody else. Let me tell you where the Holy Spirit comes into the moment. I got off the phone with my mother, my mother hung up the phone and the spirit of God spoke to her and said: there’s two men downtown or getting ready to try to hurt Brian pray for them. She stopped and prayed. I pray that Brian’s protected in Jesus name voice in your heart. You can pray somebody out of their problems. Do you know that y’all believe that the Holy Spirit to talk to us and teach us and lead us somebody say thank God for the holy spirit in Jesus name be encouraged. We serve a living God, I’m in church. I want you to be walking by faith living by faith 21. Owensboro Church We will begin sing there. If you’re there say men, Jason, London, Owensboro Church y’all, give him a hand, clap he’s going to read for us to keep my voice or 21 through 43, so long text. Now, when Jesus had crossed over again by boat to the other side, a great multitude gather to him – and he was by the Sea and behold, one of the rules, rulers of the synagogue came Jerry is fine and when he saw him, he failed his feet and Begged him earnestly sing. My little daughter lies at the point of death coming later hands on her that she may be healed and she will live so. Jesus went with him in a great multitude, followed him and throw him now certainly had a flow of blood for 12 years, and it’s suffered many things from any position. She had spent all that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse. When she heard about Jesus, she came behind him in the crowd and touched His Garment, for she said if only my touch his clothes.
I should Shelby Madewell immediately. The Fountain of her blood was dried up and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction Jesus immediately, knowing and himself that power had gone out of him turned around in the crowd and said who touched my clothes. But his disciples said to him: you see the multitude thronging you and you say who touched me and he looked around to see her. Who had done this thing, but the woman fearing and trembling knowing what had happened to her came and fell down before him and told him the whole truth, and he said to her daughter. Your faith has made you well go in peace and be healed of your Affliction, while he was still speaking. Some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house, who said your daughter is dead. Why trouble the teacher any further as soon as Jesus heard? The word that was spoken, he said to the ruler of the synagogue, do not be afraid only believe, and he permitted no one to follow him except Peter James and John, the brother of James. Then he came to the house of the ruler of the synagogue and saw a tumult and those who are wept and wailed loudly when he came in. He said to them. Why make this commotion and Weep? The child is not dead but sleeping and they ridiculed him. But when he had put them all outside, he took the father in the mother of the child and those who are with him and entered with the I was lying. Then he took the child by the hand and said to her to Lisa, which is translated. Little girl, Owensboro Church I say to you, arise immediately: the girl, a rose and walk for she was 12 years of age and they were overcome with great amazement, but he commanded them strictly that no one should know it and said that something should be given her to eat. Alright, what we’re going to do is I want you and I to take a review. I want to go to the store and look at it and inspect some of the main characters here. This is what happens in the ministry of Jesus Christ. He comes to a city called capernium. Owensboro Church How many you know: Jesus was born in Bethlehem. He was raised the Nazareth, but most of us Earthly Ministry. It was centered in happened out of the city of capernum, the prophets, even prophesied, that there would be great like in that City. He comes and he’s teaching in a man by the name of Jay Iris comes up, and this guy is a heavy-hitter. Everybody say heavy hitter he’s the top of societies, totem pole. This guy is a leader of the synagogue. No doubt he’s wealthy, no doubt he’s powerful. No doubt he has a rank in the political moving of that City he’s the guy that gets things done whatever Jay Iris wants. It probably happens for him in the culture and in the city of capernium, but he had one problem. One thing that he could not fix said he had a little girl, 12 years old, how many men out there have daughters, just left your hand up for a second about 7 months ago, baby girl, this guy loved his little girl. There’S, no doubt about it.
He watched her become a toddler. He watched her grow up again. Dewalt begin to talk again to do all the first things and something horrible happened somewhere in her in her early preteen State. Some sort of Affliction disease Came Upon her. No doubt this guy had medical attention, for he had money, I mean no money will buy you, medicine and in just will pay money is a good thing to have, but there was nothing the doctors could do for his child and he heard of the Messiah. So this heavy hitter comes down to the radical teaching session of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, most of the other leaders of the synagogue of showed up there. They wouldn’t want to be Associated that closely with Jesus. Owensboro Church They only would have been there to tempt him. The guy shows up – and he says, Master come with me – pray your hands on my little girl. She will be healed and you know what Jesus says: everybody say: Okay, aren’t you glad whenever you need a miracle that Jesus says, I’m sorry you’re not elect for this? I’M sorry this isn’t your moment to be healed. As a matter of fact, there is not one accordance 11. Testimony of a person in the Bible comes to Jesus by faith and does not receive they’re healing. Do you know that says Jesus? I want you to heal. My daughter Jesus says: okay, so they go on a road trip, they start walking there walking through the streets, and the next thing is happening. They coming to a city and all of the multitude begin strong and coming close to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, trying to get a look at him, trying to get close to him and they’re up close together just reach over and shake your neighbor a little bit right. There for a second people are bumping into each other you’re in the East, everybody’s too close to one another, how many doe in the west. We think that this room is crowded right now in the west couple hundred people or more in the west. It feels crowded. You go to Indy of the you know how many people they would get in this room for a meeting. They get double, maybe triple in here I mean this is this is too close to talk to somebody in the west, but in the East. Owensboro Church This is the little more comfortable if there’s not much space over these people are everywhere, and here comes. Our second person into the text comes a little lady, pressing through the crowd. I want you to see or think about what she looks like she looks weak. She looks frail, she looks like she looks like the kind of person who’s lost, a lot of blood wife because she’s been bleeding for 12 years without a relief from her flow of blood at the top of societies, totem pole, The Heavy Hitters. Then we have this woman with the issue of blood in Jewish culture. She would have been seen as unclean would not be allowed into the temple. The Bible says that she spent every dime she had on doctors, and they only made her worse. Thank God for modern medicine, but it can’t cure everything, and so she comes look at the connection of these two people. How many believe that the gospel comes for the up an outer and the down-and-out or amen for the banker, and it comes for the biker? It comes for the beatnik and it comes for the red. Aren’T you glad that you’re connected to people aren’t just like you in the Gospel of Jesus Christ? Owensboro Church They both came wanting a miracle. This woman, she presses. She push pushes she fights play through the crowd. She gets to Jesus just see yourself in that crowd for a moment, just go ahead and fill that woman brush past you she’s going she’s got enough ahead of us. She’S fought her way through the crowd and all the sudden we see the teacher Jesus stops says these words. He says who touched me: I felt power go out of me. The woman testifies of her healing. Let me teach you some things about faith today through this great faith. He needs to Faith Miracles right here in Mark chapter 5. The first thing I want you to know is it Faith begins with the word. Everybody say the word: this woman, with the issue of blood shed heard that the Messiah was in town. She didn’t believe that Jesus was just another teacher. Owensboro Church She didn’t believe that Jesus was just another Prophet. She heard somebody came to her and said: look there’s this guy named Jesus of Nazareth, and we believe that he is the chosen one sent to save the world, to heal the world, to redeem the world and to change the world and that woman’s heart begin to Burst something only in Romans, chapter 10, verse, 17 says, faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. Faith always begins with the word. The next thing she knew about the Messiah. She would have heard it about the Messiah through rabbinic teachers around her Jewish people would have understood. This comes out of Malachi. Owensboro Church Chapter 4, verse 2 says this. When the sun of righteousness shall arrive, he will come with healing in his wings. She knew that in her that she thought in her heart. You know, I’ve got this issue Above, It Won’t Be Stopped, won’t, be stopped, won’t be stuff, but they tell me the messiah’s hear the teacher say whenever the massage shows up he’ll be a Healer. Tell me know that Jesus is still the Healer of the world and the same yesterday today and forever he’ll kill people today. As a matter of fact, I’m an eyewitness and I’ve seen them heal people in their physical body.
Somebody say Jesus Is A Healer Taylor Hart at setting her heart until finally, Faith was birth and if you look in the text she says these words, faith is burst in her heart. Look back down at Mark chapter 5 and verse. 27 face starts in the heart of moves to the mouth when she heard that Jesus she came behind him in the crowd, touched his clothes, for she said everybody say, said, see the connection between the heart, the mouth, if only I may touch as close as she’ll, Be made well now you are not believe clothes and we see the Hem of His Garment and we don’t really understand what that is because we’re Western we’re, not Eastern, but this is something men of God. War in the Jewish culture says a prayer show. No, I don’t wear one of these because I’m a gentile, not a Jew, I’m here glad that Jesus open up the gospel for the gym towels as well. We can go to heaven amen. All you Jen tells you glad for that, but the rabbis in Jewish culture. They would wear this. I don’t look up The Wailing Wall on the internet, you’ll see men in front of the wall with one of these on praying to Jehovah and they believe in cold, as the people would bless. What does it look like whenever I do this? Like wings, doesn’t it like Batman or something whenever you pray over people they would see, Owensboro Church and this became known as the man of God’s winks on the corner of these prayer for the Jewish people, called them sit sit and what there was in. There was a double knots in five under other strands on every corner that was 13 things woven together. It was a symbol of them of the 613 laws in the Jewish Torah that one believed in her heart that there was power in his wings in his tassels. If you will, she began to fight her way through the crowd, Facebook and her heart, and she began to press through the crowd close to Jesus. The second thing I want to tell you is that faith will require a fight. Lifestyle is not always easy was never designed to be easy. You know what you’re not even supposed to say what you believe in for, because we walk by faith and not by sight. You see it requires a fight if you’re going to enter in the same as a matter of fact, the New Testament authors talked about the fight of Faith. Now, Faith Works. Faith without works is dead years ago. People whenever they started to hear Faith teaching. They said. Owensboro Church I’m going to quit my job and live by faith. What they said is I’m lazy. I don’t want to work anymore, Noble, set around and just believe somebody’s going to give me handouts every 10 minutes and that’s the way I’m going to live. My life I mean are living by handouts, is not living by faith, amen, Faith, people, work for the Bible says you know. If you don’t work, you know what this woman begins to work. She begins to press to push her way through the crowd. Small lady frail lady trying to get through the crowd and get to Jesus without you got pushed back. Owensboro Church No doubt people are stronger than her, but you still got through the crowd and once you reached out with the reach of Faith, she said her heart. If I touch his hip hop be healed, she touch that thing and all the sudden, the power of God, came out. She was made hole in her body. Jesus knew it and he said somebody touched me crazy. Somebody touched him. He knew it in the midst of a mob in the midst of a mosh pit. He said I just got touched what course you did said? How do I know cuz power went out of me. Tell you something the Holy Spirit, and sometimes when I feel power go out with me when the hand of faith comes from somebody else believe in the gods going to touch them. They can come to you when you begin to pray and they can literally pull the power out of me. You feel it sometimes it’s amazing people like that. I don’t want to quit praying for because I can feel the power of God coming out of me and rolling into their body. Do you know the anointing it transfers like that Jesus said they’re at Ghost and the woman turned around. She was scared cuz. He called her. Can you set this daughter? What did he say, daughter your you’re, what you’re, what you’re, Owensboro Church what what did your face didn’t say, bye, my sovereign will as that you, this woman didn’t wait for God to come, find her. What did she do? She went looking for God, you go looking for God. You’Ll receive your Miracle faith. It requires a fight. Alright, so is there he’d come for the killing of his daughter. He sees this woman with the issue of blood, get her Miracle. How many think that would encourage your face? Amen, wow this woman just got zapped by the power of God. My little girl needs a healing, I believe, she’s going to receive it then. He keeps walking and before they can get very much further. One of his servants comes up and he said, brings the worst possible news that he could ever have said. Don’T bother the teacher anymore little girls with the heart of Jay Iris must have done.
Well, I’m sure it fell right down in his stomach Jewish men whenever they heard that there was a loss of their loved. One always do is they would reach up and grab their cloaks and they would rip it. I can see Jay Iris reaching up and going to grab his car cuz. There’S no other words that can describe that kind of a loss and getting ready to rip rip. It and Jesus says these work. He says Don’t Be Afraid when the worst things happen to you when you get the worst news possible down across break into a million pieces, I understand that we think it makes total sense, but Jesus says Don’t Be Afraid only believe it is faith that survived through Even the worst newspapers, chapter 11, verse 1. Now that faith is the substance of things hope for the evidence of Things Not Seen for by. Owensboro Church If the elders obtained a good report, fake lives through a bad report – and it just flat keeps on going so they get there and before they get there, they can already hear crying out loud death and the loss of this little girl. In that day, there were even professional mourners. You can hire pay money for people to come born at your funeral. Somebody cry at my funeral: without prayer up without payment, you you nobody even purchased and hire professional mourners back there. How do you know if there’s lots of professional mourners in America today? Do you know that you don’t even have to pay them? They just love to become a wreck and not come often hiding behind sentiments. Owensboro Church They’Ll come and say it’s okay, baby. I know you got terminal cancer you’re going to die. It’S alright. I love you Just Let Me Love You. Lord loves. You don’t try to get you a miracle they’re just there to comfort and sometimes they’re the enemy in disguise. Let me tell you the next Point: Facebook stood out out. Everybody say that Faith puts the doubt out. Jesus only took three people with him on this trip, Peter James and John his inner circle. When he got to the house, he kicked out all the relatives before went in to pray for the girl. They said this, they said the little girl’s death and here was his answer in the King James version. He said the damsel is not dead, but sleeping. The damsel is not dead, but sleeping, but damsel is not dead, but sleeping one in your life looks dead. Is it your marriage? Isn’T your finances in your physical body? What looks dead in your life I’ll be the word of Jesus Christ? That’S a damn! So it’s not dead. She only sleeps. If that’s not good news, I don’t know what is clap your hands if you believe the damsels Not Dead, but sleeping, but look at him like he’s crazy thanks, seen her no longer breathe, seen no breath in our bodies, they seen her cheeks turn color they’ve seen Her look dead and dead people, don’t look very good they’re walking by sight, not by faith. Jesus pronounces, the word the damsel is not dead, but sleeping goes in and it kicked everybody out. You know at the church I worked in St Joseph Missouri, Owensboro Church our praise and worship leader was driving down Riverside Drive one day I got, came and ran a red light. Hit him in the side of the car broke. Part of his neck cut is a nerve that runs down to his vocal cords across the various parts of his body, and it look for sure, like he was going to die Eric start good friend of mine. They took him into the corner of the emergency room and they put him over off. The side said: get him later. You know the tree, she’s probably going to die and it has Eric was laying there. He said I heard the voice of the Holy Spirit.
Speak to me said Eric. You have a choice right now you can live or you can die. Choice is yours. Eric said I want to live so made it to a room and here’s. What are Pastor, did our pastor went and took the youth pastor and station them at the front of the door, and he said this: nobody comes into this room unless they have total faith. That Eric’s talk is going to declare the works of the Lord. I don’t care if it’s Grandma, I don’t care. If it’s mama, I don’t care. If it’s we’re going to stay here and we’re going to have faith and live, not tell me you like that youth pastors jobs, you don’t believe good enough get out of here. You know stuff stuff, but sometimes things are tough anyway watch Derek and they said around and prayed around and believe God for Eric and this morning about this time I bet Eric start is leading the praise and worship at at Word of Life Church in St Joseph Missouri, you want to hear him saying, even though it’s nerves that control his vocal cords was cut his like Dave Matthews and by the Holy Spirit bringing the power of God. He’S incredible. Tell me know if you put the doubt out, you can win any faith. Victory mm. The next thing is this last point today: is it faith gets when it comes after faith gets what it comes after that’s been put out, Jesus walks into the room sees that dead body laying there, but the damsel was not dead. She was only sleeping says two words to it in Aramaic, sister Lisa, which means little girl arise, and you know what happened the little girl she got up want to announce to you this morning. There’S something in your life that needs to get up. The damsel is not dead, dance was only sleeping. What is it where? Is it at 5, this morning, stand up on your feet. Stand up on your feet. The damsel is not dead, Owensboro Church the damsel is not dead. Just Close Your Eyes, the damsel is not dead. The damsel is not dead, but damsel is not dead. Somebody say that out loud, the damsel is not dead, but damsel is not dead. She only sleeps. That means there’s still a chance for you today, long as there’s breath in your lungs blood in your body, you still have a chance, and this young lady didn’t even have that there was still room for a miracle in her life. What do you need from the Lord? What do you need from the look? What are you crazy enough to believe God, for you can have it? Whoever says to this mountain be removed, be cast in the sea. Does not doubt the things he says but believes what he says will come to pass. He will have whatever he says, whatever you believe for when you pray believe that you receive it, Owensboro Church you will have it. Those people who have a damsel needs Resurrection in your life. I want you to come to this altar right now. I want to pray for you want to hook my faith to you just go ahead and come to this altar right now you can come out of your seat going to pray for you right now.
