Summary: Noise is a sign of life. There was a noise when Jesus was in the house.
I. A noise (an announcement) that Jesus is in the house.
A. If we want Jesus in the house we got to invite Him. Re 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
B. We got to let Him in.
C. We need let Him minister to. Pr 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. (6) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
II. Tearing the roof off to get to Jesus.
A. When we want something so bad we will do what ever it takes to get it.
B. If something is standing in the way of the Lord ministering to you, you got to remove that which stands between you and your King.
C. Zaccheus climbed a tree to see Jesus, Nicademeous couldn’t wait til morning to see Him, the woman with the issue of blood had to touch him.
D. We can’t let the flesh stand in the way; we just crucify it, and the devil has no right for we are free by the blood of the lamb and have power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:
E. We have been bought with a price and are free in Jesus name! Now is not the time to give up! We must keep pushing keep knocking keep seeking the King.
F. We got to keep coming in faith, we go to be hard headed for Jesus
III. We can’t expect God to follow a formula.
A. Isa 55:8 For my thoughts [are] not your thoughts, neither [are] your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
B. Job 23:14 For he performeth [the thing that is] appointed for me: and many such [things are] with him.
C. Pr 19:21 ¶ [There are] many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand.
D. There is no reason to make war with the enemy when we already have the victory! It is time to cast down those thoughts and imaginations that tell us we have lost, we have won, and by the shed blood of Jesus we have victory
