The Power of this Gospel
HHM Pastor Jim Parisi Sept 8, 2002
Do we truly understand the love of Jesus Christ?
Do we appreciate the righteousness of Our God?
Do we realize the Power of this Gospel?
There was a day that the incarnate god of this universe walked amongst His people.
There was a day that a people knew that by faith they could be healed by just touching the hem of His robe. .
Talk about intensity.. Talk about the power to heal a man or woman with one touch from the master’s hand.
I’m here to tell you that you have the same available to you today as it was in that day,
and He has the same power to heal you right now. All you need is faith to believe and eyes to see.
Let’s look at this faith, the faith of an unknown woman. No one special..
just One of the crowd, no one in high office or of notoriety, not one who was part of mans order, or plan
Nevertheless, a lady of great faith who knew that if she just would touch His robe she would be healed of her infirmity ….
God had a Plan for her because she had an appointment with Jesus the great physician
Mt 9:20- 22 - 20 And suddenly, a woman who had a flow of blood for twelve years came from behind and touched the hem of His garment. 21 For she said to herself, "If only I may touch His garment, I shall be made well." 22 But Jesus turned around, and when He saw her He said, "Be of good cheer, daughter; your faith has made you well." And the woman was made well from that hour.
They knew from others … that when He came to town they could be healed by one touch.
Where else could this happen unless the Power of God was in control of the situation and Spirit of god was present.
Mark 6:56 - Wherever He entered into villages, cities, or in the country, they laid the sick in the marketplaces, and begged Him that they might just touch the hem of His garment. And as many as touched Him were made well.
Anyone who would touch Him was made well the verse sats.
They knew he was coming they were waiting on the road and all they had to do is ask.
All they had to do was lean out from the road and be touched
Reach out and touch Him
This healing, signs and wonders didn’t end when Jesus whet to be with the father, It was just the beginning.
The Spirit of God fell on the People of God and the Power of God dwells in man today.
Today is a day just like the days of old… and I feel we are being prepared for such a day,…. maybe even greater.
A day to see the wonderment of OUR God
The working of His Gifts, Signs , wonders and Miracles is for today.
The Church has for too long given its power over to the world
The toothless lion, a beast with barely any bark let alone bite
To long healing was left to false profits, sorcerers, mystics and magicians
This is a day when we take back our towns and cities our Nation
Sept. 11th was an a warning, an example … a wake up call for America…
In addition, why does this happen… Because the church is passive and doesn’t know its own truths
it doesn’t know its own authority
we wait and lay down like sheep ready for the slaughter
The church in America today Dose not know the true power of the Gospel
We are to be like Jesus the Loin of Judah
Yes a lion that is the most respected of all the animal Kingdome
He knows who he is, and his abilities.
Peter and the Apostles walked this earth by faith filled with the power of God to heal, along with other gifts.
Not compromised power, but the full power of the Holy Sprit that dwells with in us.
12 And through the hands of the apostles many signs and wonders were done among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s Porch. 13 Yet none of the rest dared join them, but the people esteemed them highly. 14 And believers were increasingly added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, 15 so that they brought the sick out into the streets and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the shadow of Peter passing by might fall on some of them. 16 Also a multitude gathered from the surrounding cities to Jerusalem, bringing sick people and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were all healed.
