Sermon Notes: 8/13/23

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬


Miracles are included in this spiritual blessing.


📝 Miracles are when God BREAKS PROTOCOL to what science, law, statistics, and physics say can’t be done.


Miracles are when God defies the odds, redefines expectations, crosses over into what can’t be done, and begins to take residence in the impossible.


📝 “For WITH GOD nothing shall be impossible.”

‭‭Luke‬ ‭1‬:‭37‬ ‭


Impossible is God’s calling card.

Impossible is God’s job description.

Impossible is everyday to God.

Impossible is God’s warm up routine.

Impossible is no stress to God.

Impossible is no strain to God.

Impossible is effortless to God.

Impossible is inexhaustible to God.


“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1‬:‭3‬


Since miracles are included in this spiritual blessing, ‬and since we’re living under an OPEN HEAVEN, I say to you this morning,


CHANGE IS COMING


Not just any type of change….a miracle.


But Jesus replied, “Only an evil, adulterous generation would demand a miraculous sign; but the only sign I will give them is the sign of the prophet Jonah. Matthew 12:39


📝 We don’t ask for a miracle TO PROVE that He’s God, we ask for a miracle because WE KNOW that He’s God.


Since change is coming, we must know where to look because…


You can’t change without THE CHANGER.


Then the LORD said to Abram, “KNOW THIS for certain: Your offspring will be resident aliens for four hundred years in a land that does not belong to them and will be enslaved and oppressed. Genesis 15:13


Know this, know that I know.


📝 Your affliction has an EXPIRATION DATE!


But I WILL punish the nation they serve as slaves, and afterward they will come out with great possessions. Genesis 15:14


“Years passed, and the king of Egypt died. But the Israelites continued to groan under their burden of slavery. They cried out for help, and their cry rose up to God. God heard their groaning, AND HE REMEMBERED HIS COVENANT PROMISE TO ABRAHAM, Isaac, and Jacob.”

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭2‬:‭23‬-‭24‬


‬‬ “He looked down on the people of Israel and knew IT WAS TIME TO ACT.

‭‭Exodus‬ ‭2‬:‭25‬ ‭


The act that God was getting ready to pull off was a miracle.


Miracles are God’s business.


It’s not on me to make it happen.

It’s not on the worship team to set just the perfect atmosphere for God to show up. God showed up in Genesis, stepped out on NOTHING and created EVERYTHING.


Miracles are only manufactured in Heaven.


When you need a miracle, there’s only one place you can go to. When you need a miracle, there’s only one person you can call on—God Almighty.


“And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years,”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭25‬


12 years, 4,380 days she dealt with this issue, yet still believed God for a miracle.


📝 Don’t allow TIME to talk you out of an ETERNAL miracle.


📝 ETERNITY doesn’t take orders from TIME, TIME takes orders from ETERNITY.


“She had suffered a great deal under the care of many doctors and had spent all she had, yet instead of getting better she grew worse.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭26‬ ‭


‬‬ “When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. For she said, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭27‬-‭28‬ ‭


📝 When there’s nothing else that THEY CAN DO, look to Jesus to do what only HE CAN DO.


‬‬ “Immediately the fountain of her blood was dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of the affliction.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭29‬


“And Jesus, immediately knowing in Himself that power had gone out of Him, turned around in the crowd and said, “Who touched My clothes?””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭30


““You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’ ” But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭31‬-‭32‬


“Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭33‬ ‭‬‬


“He said to her, “Daughter, YOUR FAITH HAS HEALED YOU. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭34‬ ‭


YOUR FAITH HAS HEALED YOU.


“As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, calling out, “Have mercy on us, Son of David!” When he had gone indoors, the blind men came to him, and he asked them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they replied.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭9‬:‭27‬-‭28‬ ‭


‬‬ “Then he touched their eyes and said, “ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH let it be done to you”;”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭9‬:‭29‬‬‬


📝 Miracles look for FAITH.


"…However, when the Son of Man comes, WILL HE FIND FAITH on the earth?” Luke 18:8


“For indeed the gospel was preached to us as well as to them; but the word which they heard did not profit them, NOT BEING MIXED WITH FAITH in those who heard it.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4‬:‭2‬ ‭‬‬


“A man in the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought you my son, who is possessed by a spirit that has robbed him of speech. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth and becomes rigid. I asked your disciples to drive out the spirit, but they could not.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭9‬:‭17‬-‭18‬


‬‬ ““You unbelieving generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy to me.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭9‬:‭19‬


‬‬ “So they brought him. When the spirit saw Jesus, it immediately threw the boy into a convulsion. He fell to the ground and rolled around, foaming at the mouth.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭9‬:‭20‬ ‭


“Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has he been like this?” “From childhood,” he answered. “It has often thrown him into fire or water to kill him. But if you can do anything, take pity on us and help us.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭9‬:‭21‬-‭22‬ ‬‬


““ ‘If you can’?” said Jesus. "EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE FOR ONE BELIEVES.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭9‬:‭23‬ ‭


“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!””

Mark 9:24


📝 Don’t allow DISAPPOINTMENT to REAPPOINT your faith.


“Soon the house where he was staying was so packed with visitors that there was no more room, even outside the door. While he was preaching God’s word to them, four men arrived carrying a paralyzed man on a mat.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭2‬:‭2‬-‭3‬


‬‬ “They couldn’t bring him to Jesus because of the crowd, so they dug a hole through the roof above his head. Then they lowered the man on his mat, right down in front of Jesus.”

‭‭Mark‬ ‭2‬:‭4‬ ‭


‬‬ “SEEING THEIR FAITH, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “My child, your sins are forgiven.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭2‬:‭5‬ ‭‬‬


📝 Faith is DOING WHAT YOU CAN DO, while waiting for God to what only He can do.


📝 Miracles listen for CONFESSIONS.


‬‬ “When she heard about Jesus, she came behind Him in the crowd and touched His garment. FOR SHE SAID, “If only I may touch His clothes, I shall be made well.””

‭‭Mark‬ ‭5‬:‭27‬-‭28‬ ‭


"Death and life are in the power of the tongue…”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭18‬:‭21‬ ‭‬‬


““Lord, my young servant lies in bed, paralyzed and in terrible pain.” Jesus said, “I will come and heal him.””

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8‬:‭6‬-‭7‬ ‭‬‬


“But the officer said, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come into my home. JUST SAY THE WORDfrom where you are, and my servant will be healed.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8‬:‭8‬ ‭‬‬


“When Jesus heard this, he was amazed. Turning to those who were following him, he said, “I tell you the truth, I HAVEN’T SEEN FAITH like this in all Israel!”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭8‬:‭10‬ ‭‬‬


📝 Exchange THEIR REPORT for HIS REPORT.


"If they make it through the night.”

📝 He OWNS THE NIGHT.


"The next 24 hours are critical.”

📝 He OWNS TIME.


"It’s going to be a long road to recovery.”


📝 He OWNS THE OUTCOME.


📝 Miracles lean towards ENDURANCE.


“I watched as thrones were put in place and the Ancient One sat down to judge. His clothing was as white as snow, his hair like purest wool. He sat on a fiery throne with wheels of blazing fire, and a river of fire was pouring out, flowing from his presence. MILLIONS OF ANGELS ministered to him; MANY MILLIONS STOOD to attend him. Then the court began its session, and the books were opened.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭7‬:‭9‬-‭10‬ ‭‬‬


“Just then a hand touched me and lifted me, still trembling, to my hands and knees.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10‬:‭10‬ ‭


“And the man said to me, “Daniel, you are very precious to God, so listen carefully to what I have to say to you. Stand up, for I have been sent to you.” When he said this to me, I stood up, still trembling.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10‬:‭11‬ ‭


‬‬ “Then he said, “Don’t be afraid, Daniel. SINCE THE FIRST DAY you began to pray for understanding and to humble yourself before your God, YOUR REQUEST HAS BEEN HEARD IN HEAVEN. I have come in answer to your prayer.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10‬:‭12‬ ‭


‬‬ “But for twenty-one days THE SPIRIT PRINCE of the kingdom of Persia BLOCKED MY WAY. Then Michael, one of the archangels, came to help me, and I left him there with the spirit prince of the kingdom of Persia.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10‬:‭13‬ ‭


“And you were dead in the trespasses and sins in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following THE PRINCE OF THE POWER OF THE AIR, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—”

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2‬:‭1‬-‭2‬ ‭‬‬


“Now I am here to explain what will happen to your people in the future, for this vision concerns a time yet to come.””

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10‬:‭14‬


“Meanwhile, I will tell you what is written in the Book of Truth. (No one helps me against these spirit princes except Michael, your spirit prince.”

‭‭Daniel‬ ‭10‬:‭21‬


GIVE THIS WOMAN HER FLOWERS!


She had to conquer leaving the house.

She had to conquer the crowd.

She had to conquer time.

She had to conquer exhaustion.

She had to conquer the opinion of others.


You don’t need what I need. You haven’t been through what I’ve been through. You haven’t cried how I cried. You haven’t experienced what I experienced. You haven’t paced the floor, like I’ve paced the floor. You haven’t tossed and turned, like I’ve had to toss and turn. You haven’t bled like I’ve bled. You haven’t had to fight, like I had to fight.


Excuse me if I wear it on my face, I no longer have the strength to fight it. I no longer have the strength or desire to cover it up. I NEED A CHANGE. I NEED JESUS. I NEED A MIRACLE!


WHAT’S YOUR MIRACLE?


What are you believing God to do?
