Summary: THAT WE ALL SHOULD HAVE A CASE OF THE I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD BECAUSE IF THE LORD HAS BEEN YOUR BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER IF THE LORD HAS MADE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY IF HE`S BEEN BREAD WHEN YOU WAS HUNGRY AND WATER WHEN YOU WAS THRISTY YOUR COMPANY KEEPER IN A LONELY HOUR

Mark 10:46-47 (TLB)

46 And so they reached Jericho. Later, as they left town, a great crowd was following. Now it happened that a blind beggar named Bartimaeus (the son of Timaeus) was sitting beside the road as Jesus was going by.

47 When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus from Nazareth was near, he began to shout out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"

VERY BRIEFLY WITH THE HELP OF THE LORD AND THE GUIDIANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT AND THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS

I WOULD LIKE TO REASON WITH YOU ON THE THOUGHT

A CASE OF THE I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD

MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS

AS GOOD AS THE LORD HAS BEEN TO EACH OF US

WE ALL SHOULD HAVE A CASE OF THE I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD

BECAUSE WHEN WE ALL REFLECT BACK ON THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES

WE ALL HAVE HAD OUR SHARE OF GOOD DAYS AS WELL BAD

WE`VE HAD OUR SHARE OF UP`S AS WELL DOWNS

AND WE`VE EVEN HAD OUR SHARE OF DANGER TOILS AND SNARES

BUT IN THE MIDIST OF IT ALL GOD HAS BEEN MIGHTY GOOD TO EACH OF US

THAT`S WHY I FEEL THAT MY CLAIM IS VALID

THAT WE ALL SHOULD HAVE A CASE OF THE I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD

BECAUSE IF THE LORD HAS BEEN YOUR BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATER

IF THE LORD HAS MADE A WAY OUT OF NO WAY

IF HE`S BEEN BREAD WHEN YOU WAS HUNGRY

AND WATER WHEN YOU WAS THRISTY

YOUR COMPANY KEEPER IN A LONELY HOUR

YOU OUGHT TO HAVE A CASE OF I CAN`T HELP BUT GIVE GOD SOME PRAISE

NOW TO FULLY APPERECIATE THIS TEXT BEFORE US

WE FRIST MUST UNDERSTAND THE CONTEXT OF IT`S SETTING

BECAUSE THIS BIBICAL EPISODE IN THE TEXT

TAKES PLACE DURING THE LAST DAYS OF JESUS PUBLIC MINISTRY ON EARTH

HE HAD BEEN TEACHING ON MARRIAGE AND DIVORCE

HE BLESSES THE LITTLE CHILDREN

HE HAS A 1 ON 1 WITH A RICH YOUNG RULER AND GIVE HIM BIBICAL INSTRUCTION

ON HOW TO INHERIT ENTERNAL LIFE

HE TEACHES HIS DICIPLES THAT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE

HE PERDICTS FOR THE 3RD TIME HIS DEATH AND RESSURECTION

HE DENIES JAMES AND JOHN REQUEST AND TEACHES ABOUT THE GREATNESS IN SERVING

BUT AS HE JOURNEY FROM GALILEE TO JERUSALEM

THE TEXT INFORMS US THAT HE PASSES THROUGH JERICHO

AND AS HE WAS LEAVING JERICHO HE MET A MAN BARTIMAEUS ---SON OF TIMAEUS

WHO SAT BY THE JERICHO ROAD WITH HIS TIN CUP OF EXISTENCE BEGGING

AND BARTIMAEUS TEACHES US ABOUT A CASE OF THE I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD

***************************************************************

WELL THE 1ST THING HE TEACHES US THAT IF YOU WANT A CASE OF THE I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD

YOU HAVE TO REALIZE THAT YOUR PRESENT CONDITION IS NOT YOUR CONCLUSION

AND YOU CAN`T LET AN OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFE TIME PASS YOU BY

THE TEXT REVEALS THAT WHEN BARTIMAEUS

HEARD THAT JESUS WAS PASSING BY

THE BIBLE SAYS HE BEGAN TO SHOUT

SON OF DAVID HAVE MERCY ON ME

IN OTHER WORDS HE DID`NT NEED NO PREACHER TO PREACH HIM HAPPY

DEACONS TO PRAY HIM HAPPY

CHOIR TO SING HIM HAPPY

THE TEXT REVEALS THAT WHEN HE HEARD THAT JESUS WAS PASSING BY HE CAUGHT A CASE OF I CAN`T HELP BUT PRAISE THE LORD

WHEN HE REALIZE THAT HE WAS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE LIVING WORD

HE BEGAN TO SHOUT

SON OF DAVID HAVE MERCY ON ME

NOTICE

BARTIMAEUS DID`NT WAIT TILL JESUS GOT THERE TO SHOUT

BUT HE SHOUTED BEFORE JESUS GOT TO WHERE HE WAS IN OTHER WORDS HE GAVE GOD SOME ABOUT TO PRAISE

AND SINCE HE HEARD

YOU DO KNOW THAT FAITH COME BY HEARING AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD

CAN I BORROW A SKINNY MINUTE AND TELL YOU WHAT I`M TALKING ABOUT BARTIMAEUS DID`NT NEED NO PREACHER TO PREACH HIM HAPPY

-HE DID`NT NEED NO CHOIR TO SING HIM HAPPY

-HE DID`NT NEED NO DEACONS TO PRAY HIM HAPPY

-HE DID`NT NEED NO CHOIR TO SING HIM HAPPY

ALL HE NEEDED TO KNOW THAT THE LIVING WORD OF GOD WAS NEAR

AND THE BIBLE SAYS HE BEGAN TO SHOUT-SON OF DAVID HAVE MERCY ON ME

**************************************************************

WELL NOT ONLY DID`NT HE LET THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFE TIME PASS HIM BY

AND GAVE GOD SOME ABOUT TOO PRAISE

BUT THE TEXT ALSO REVEALS THAT DID`NT LET THE CROWD KEEP HIM FROM GETTING HIS

PRAISE ON

VERSE 48 IN THE TEXT SAYS

Many rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, "Son of

David, have mercy on me!"

EVEN IN THIS DAY AND TIME THAT WE ARE LIVING IN THERE IS STILL SOME NAYSAYERS WHO WILL TRY TO HINDER YOUR PRASIE
