Summary: Jesus is in the house. He can restore all by faith in His name. We all need cleansed by His blood.

And because of that A REVIVAL HAS HAPPENED

Today we will be looking at the 2nd chapter of Mark, verses 1-12.

The house was filled; it was filled with anticipation of hearing the good news of the gospel.

Almost 2000 years ago Jesus filled the house, a house in Capernaum.

Today we fill the house with a revival of the Holy Spirit. A spirit that is alive. The same spirit Jesus shared in Capernaum.

This all began when a man with Leprosy came to Jesus and begged him on his knees and ask “If you are willing”.

“If you are willing” “If you are willing”

I pray today that it doesn’t take a life threatening disease to say “If you are willing”.

Jesus is always willing. AMEN

You see----the man with Leprosy probably thought he was too despicable to get clean…..

Jesus said “I am willing” “be clean”

Can you imagine the euphoria that came over this man.

Then Jesus said “see that you don’t tell anyone of this”


When you accepted Jesus into your heart, could you hold that to yourself.

Weren’t you just exploding with the Holy Spirit, so much so that you had to run and tell everyone?

You were walking around with a glow of the spirit.

Hebrew 2:14 tells us “For we have shared in Christ, if we hold our first confidence firm to the end.

So this man whom Jesus saved went out spreading the news-- and as a result-- Jesus could no longer openly enter a town but stayed outside in lonely places.


Mark 2:1-2 A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. 2 So many gathered that there was no room left, not even outside the door, and he preached the word to them.

Note what Jesus did, He preached the Word to them.

He peaked their curiosity first with healings of the spirit of God.

Then they came. They came and filled the house.

Some may have come for a cure, such as palsy or Leprosy…..

Some may have come out of curiosity……

Some may have come to catch sight of Him…….

But when they came together He preached to them…..

To proclaim the word of God to men who were lost eternally.

We are here today…together in the house of the Lord…..AMEN….

In the twenty first century……in the house of the Lord there is no difference today then 2000 years ago.

Some of you come here today for a cure, just as they did 2000 years ago.

Leprosy today is alcohol, anger, nicotine, drugs, and promiscuous sexual activity etc.,

So you come today to look and find that cure….

Well, brother Allan, I don’t have those issues……..OK

Leprosy today is gossip, enabling, co-dependency, bitterness, strife, overeating, anxiety

You need to come clean from these…..

So you come today to look and find that cure….

Well, brother Allan, I don’t have those issues…..OK

Leprosy today is covetousness, and being idle as a Christian.

You didn’t think you were going to get out of this that easy and be the one that has no problems and does not need a cure……

Let me tell you my friends, we all have Leprosy of some kind, and we all need a cure…..

Some of them back then filled the house out of curiosity.

Some of us come every week peaked by our curiosity….

Your curiosity may be that you are still driving in your own will and you are seeking the willing physician to fish you out of your indecision.

Your curiosity may be that you look through the scriptures searching for the answers to satisfy your curiosity of the savior.

You may have come for some guiding light spoken through the words today to make sense of your curiosity.

But you have come into the house, the same as they did 2000 years ago.

You have come to seek righteousness in your life.

Step out in faith and trust in the Lord your God. He and He alone can and will satisfy your longings of curiosity.

Jesus is the only one to satisfy your curiosity. AMEN He is our Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer.

And some came back then to the house to catch site of Him.

Nothing has changed, some of us come today to catch site of Him.

IF you are not in the spirit of God, you cannot see Him. 1 Cor 2:14.

IF you are of the spirit of God you can see right now.

You can catch site of Him right now. There are 100 or so Jesus’ sitting here today in this congregation.
