Can You Hear Me Now
“Can You Hear Me Now?”
#1 FOCUS - THE DIRECTION OF FOCUS
#2 FATHER. – A DECLARATION OF FATHER
#3 FAITH. - A DETERMINATION OF FAITH
Finally. Finally here__. The 3rd –thing_ in your dead situation, is that you’ve got to have_,, (and this is a must),, You’ve got to have a determination of faith. I’m talkin’ about yawl, you’ve got to have__ in your heart, a never-say- die__, attitude. Notice, He said Father_,, I_, thank thee!! – Oh_ I pray that yawl get this principle today:
The situation is_ bad__; The grave_ is stinkin; Lazarus is, dead; The critics are criticizing; Mary & Martha are angry & bereaved; The mourners are mourning; The disciples are dumb___; There is no possibility for Lazarus to come back for it has been 4-days___// the Jews believed that after the 3rd day the spirit of the dead left the body – They believed that on the 4th day the spirit left the body = ALL_ HOPE IS GONE_!!
· So in a completely hopeless situation, with no way_ out__,, Some how__ Jesus,, managed to say__,, “I thank ya’.”
I wish you could get this. How many times_ in your dead_ situations,, when you reached that point and you look around_ and see, no way out; Do you complain__? Do you curse_? Do you get drunk_? Do you throw a temper tantrum or a pity party? Do you get depressed_,, when you see__ that things_ look bad__?
I pray_ that you get this today__; What you need_ is a determination of faith__. Somehow__,, when your focus is right_; (When you’re lookin’ at the right stuff); You can see God__ as Father,, and you can say__,, Thank-Ya’!!
You may not understand__ what’s happening,, (You can’t, figure, it out_;) You can’t honestly_, see_, how it’s goin’ work out.; But you trust the Father__; So you tell Him_,, “Thank ya’.”
Now__,, I need to tell you_ about thank ya’; The Grk word_ for Thank you “Eukerestio”; It’s a compound_ Grk word “Eu_” from which we get our English word_ Eulogy from; which means to speak well of. And the word_ “Keeris” which means_ “Grace.”
And so thank you is really my expression of God’s__, Good Grace. And you know what grace is_ don’t ya’?? It’s something_ that you need_, but you don’t deserve__; It’s God_ being nice to you__, even when you’ve been nasty to Him__; Grace,, God’s benevolence. Grace,, God’s riches, lavishly displayed__; It’s somehow_,, God_ blessin’ us, in spite of us; It’s what God_ does for us, for Jesus’ sake.. It’s overshadowing Mercy!
When_ ugh_,, you know_, that you have not been faithful to Him__; Um_,, Everytime_, I think about_, God’s_ grace_ to me__; I can’t, help. But ugh_, to say_,, Thank ya’; Um_,,
For ugh__,, your situation__, may be dead_ now__,, or ugh_, it may be_, gloomy_; But ugh_,, you need__, to focus_ on a__,, God’s_ good grace__; Jesus said__,, I thank thee_, for thou_ ugh_, has heard_ me; Umm__,, when I look back_,, over my life__,, umm_ When I think, about the goodness of Jesus….
Well Ugh__,, Jesus said__,, when you have__,, a dead_ situation; Umm__,, You need_ to run back down__, the memory lane_, of God’s_ good grace; When a’__,, you think about_, how__, He’s watched over you__,, all_ night long__; when a’__ you didn’t even say your prayers last night__. – That’s God’s__ a’__, good grace;
And__ ugh__,, if He woke you up__,, early___ this morning__,, that’s God’s__, good grace__; And__ ugh__,, If you a’__, have food_ to eat__,, well a’__, that’s God’s__, good grace__.
And__ ugh__,, if He brought you out__, of a situation_, that seemed_ dark_ & dead__,, and you know nobody__, but God__ brought you out__!!,, You oughta’__, say thank ya’___!!!
And ugh__,, if you’ve been_ through the storm_, and thru the rains__,, you oghta’ say thank ya’; Sometimes_ up,, and Some times_ down__… You oughta say thank ya’
I’ve seen the lightening, I’ve heard_ the thunders roll__; I’ve felt sin-breakers dashing, tryin’ to conquer my soul__; … THANK YA”
Friends walked out on ya’; Bills behind__; trouble in your home; sickness lookin’ hopeless; - You ought to say__, Thank Ya’…
If you can just look back over your life__,, And see how He has made a way before__,, you oughtta be able__, to lift your head__, and say__ Thank ya’__; In spite of a dead_ situation__,, you ought to say_ thank ya’__; - Ain’t God_ all right__!!
There’s something__,, about thank ya__,, that touches_ God__; There’s something__,, about thank ya’__,, that get’s God’s_ attention__; There’s something__,, about thank ya’_,, that shakes heaven up__; especially in a dead_ or bad_ situation__;
Jesus said__,, Father I thank Ya’__; And He said__,, Not for my faith__,, but for all of these__ standin’ ‘round__; ‘Ain’t God_ all right__;
Somebody__,, in BBFTT, needs to know how to say thank ya’__,, in a dead_ situation__’ Somebody__,, needs to know how__,, to lift their hands__, when days_/things__ look dark__;
You see__,, I’ve cried many tears and sorrows; I’ve had questions for tomorrow; there have been times I didn’t know right from wrong__; but in every situation, God gave me blessed consolation; I didn’t know my trials would make me strong__.
I thank God__ for my mountains; I thank Him for my valleys; Thru Good times & bad__; Thru it all__!!// Thru it all__!! I’ve learned__ to trust is Jesus….
Thank ya’ for my mountains___;…. valleys;
· The Lord__ will make a way,, out of No WAY!!
· The Lord__,, will make a way_,, somehow__!!
I got to close_ here__ so come on__ and go wit’ me__,, to the grave___,, You can make noise__ now__//
Hanging around_ with the other dead spirits… Lazarus, walking around_ in dead spirit land__; I HEARD Lazarus say_ “Hush, x,, somebody’s callin’ my name__// HUSH__, Somebody’s callin’ my name__;
I’ve got to leave you father Abraham__; It was nice talkin’ to you Isaac__; It was nice talkin’ to you Jacob__; But I’ve got to go now__; Jesus___,, Is calling my name__…
And Lazarus__, xx came__ forth__,, bound___; hand__ and foot__; And Jesus said__, “Loose him__”// Lazarus has got a testimony__.
So they stipped the tape__, off of Lazarus’ mouth__; And I heard him,, for myself__, tell Him thank ya’__,,, xxxx ; Can you say thank ya’__?; Has God__ , ever put life,, in your dead__ situation__??
Thank ya__!! Xxxx Grab somebody’s hand__; Tell ‘em neighbor__….. xxxx
My situation looks dark__; my situation looks dead__; My situation is stinkin’__;
But ‘Om gonna get my focus right, I’m goin’ declare_ that God_ is my Father; And then I’m gonna say Thank ya’ – That’s my determination of Faith…. – Hold On__ To Your Faith!! xxxx
It looks bad___,, I don’t see no way out__; But neighbor__,, I made up my mind__,, I’m___,, goin’ say_ thank ya’__!! I_____, I’m gonna say thank ya’__; I__’m__,, goin’ stay on thank ya’ Blvd.__; I__’m_,, goin’ stay on gratitude avenue_; I’m___,, goin’ stay right there__,, until__ Jesus says__,, “Come forth,, xxxxxx”
Thank ya’__ xxxx; I dare you to try it__!! Thank ya’_ xxxxx
Back up,, and think about what the Lord__ has done for you…. I can’t do that for ya’__,, But can you say_ thank ya’__?????????????
