Summary: There are blessings, there are great blessings, and then there are ridiculous blessings.....
Before I ever start Preaching I am going to Prophesy first, and tell you that someone hearing this message whether live or by cd, or podcast or even in the written form, God is getting ready to do something so powerful and so awesome in your life, that you wouldnï¿½t believe it if I told you.
In fact the Lord said: Tell my people I am getting ready to release some ridiculous blessings into their lives.
So I prophesy to you right now that God is going to send some ridiculous blessings into your life.
Ridiculous = (absurd) (outrageous) (ludicrous) (unbelievable) (laughable)
God is getting ready to bless you in such a ridiculous way that if I told you right now, it would sound so crazy and outrageous and unbelievable to you that you would probably fall over laughing.
Ask your neighbor: Can you handle a ridiculous blessing?
There are blessings, then there are great blessings, then there are ridiculous blessings.
I just wonder is there anyone in this house who is ready for a ridiculous blessing?
1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret,
(Let me stop right there, for somebody thatï¿½s the word you needed, if you didnï¿½t hear anything else in this message you got enough to get you through whatever youï¿½re going through.
(And it came to pass)
It didnï¿½t come to stay, it came to pass (I donï¿½t care what youï¿½re going through, the Lord told me to tell you, itï¿½s temporary, itï¿½s not eternal.
No storm lasts forever, the wind will quit blowing, the rain will stop and the sun will shine again.
Before you ever went into that trial, God already marked on his calendar when it would end.
(Tell your neighbor: It wonï¿½t be long now)
Then it says: They pressed upon him to hear the Word of God
The most important thing in your life is the Word of God, The answer to every problem in your life will come from the Word of God.
Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
That is why it is so important where you go to church and the preaching and teaching you are sitting under.
Your life depends on the Word that you are hearing.
Not every church preaches divine healing, not every church preaches biblical prosperity, and not every church preaches the baptism of the Holy Ghost and the gifts of the spirit.
You need to be in a church where the uncompromising Word of God is preached in the Power of The Holy Ghost without fear or favor.
*And saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets.
When I read this I thought of all the Ministers that for one reason or another have left the ministry, they have left their pulpits and basically said Iï¿½m done.
First of all ministry is not an easy thing, to desire ministry is to choose a difficult life, the rewards are many but there is also a lot of pain and heartache.
If you are going to be in ministry (you need a tough hide and a soft heart)
I want to speak specifically to men and women of God who are in ministry right now but for one reason or another you have become discouraged, and you are at the point right now of throwing in the towel, Iï¿½m not talking about turning your back on God, Just getting out of ministry
(maybe people have hurt you, maybe youï¿½ve been lied on, and stabbed in the back, people have taken advantage of you, maybe you just feel like nothing you are doing is working, you feel like your banging your head against the wall.
I just came to tell you: Donï¿½t quit, donï¿½t leave, donï¿½t walk away from what you know God has called you to do.
Jesus never said it would be easy, (he said count the cost)
There is a blessing waiting just around the corner, just over the next hill God has something prepared for you that will make it worth it all.
Iï¿½m talking about a ridiculous blessing.
Be not weary in well doing, for in due season ye shall reap if ye faint not.
3 (And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simonï¿½s,) and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.
*Now the Word is not just on the sea shore speaking, Now the word has entered Peters boat.
Itï¿½s one thing to hear the word and itï¿½s another thing to get the word in your heart.
