"THE REASON WHY"
by Pastor Tony Sutton

Mark 4:35-41

  • Mark 4:35 And the same day, when the even was come, he saith unto them, Let us pass over unto the other side.
  • Mark 4:36 And when they had sent away the multitude, they took him even as he was in the ship. And there were also with him other little ships.
  • Mark 4:37 And there arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full.
  • Mark 4:38 And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow: and they awake him, and say unto him, Master, carest thou not that we perish?
  • Mark 4:39 And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.
  • Mark 4:40 And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?
  • Mark 4:41 And they feared exceedingly, and said one to another, What manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?

Mark 5:1-9

  • Mark 5:1 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
  • Mark 5:2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
  • Mark 5:3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
  • Mark 5:4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
  • Mark 5:5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones.
  • Mark 5:6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him,
  • Mark 5:7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
  • Mark 5:8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
  • Mark 5:9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

GOD INSTRUCTS

  • A) GO YE THEREFORE AND TEACH, PREACH, ETC...
  • B) GO YE THEREFORE AND WITNESS, VISIT, ETC...
  • C) GO YE THEREFORE AND FEED, CLOTHE, ETC...

     GOD MAY INSTRUCT YOU TO TAKE ON A CHORE THAT MAY OR MAY NOT SEEM CHALLENGING, HOWEVER NEVER TAKE ANY TASK LIGHTLY.

SATAN ATTACKS

     THE DEVIL WILL ALWAYS TRY TO STOP PROGRESS OF GOD'S PEOPLE. THERE IS ALWAYS A REASON FOR SATAN'S INTERFERENCE. *NEVER ALLOW SATAN TO DECEIVE YOU INTO THINKING THERE'S NO USE, *NOBODY CARES, *YOU CAN'T DO IT, *AND GOD HAS FORSAKEN YOU, *NEVER ALLOW HIM TO DISCOURAGE YOU ENOUGH TO QUIT! THE HARDER SATAN FIGHTS THE MORE DETERMINED WE SHOULD BE TO SUCCEED! THERE IS A REASON!!!

GOAL COMPLETE

WHEN WE'VE HAVE HELD FAST THE INSTRUCTION OF GOD AND REMAINED FAITHFUL UNTO HIS WORD, WE WILL SEE THE MIGHTY HAND OF GOD PERFORM, AND ACCOMPLISH THAT, IN WHICH IT SET FORTH TO DO. 

GOAL COMPLETE

AS WE LOOK AT THE STORY ABOVE WE SEE HOW THAT JESUS SAID TO THE DISCIPLES " Let us pass over unto the other side." THEN WE SEE HOW THAT THE WIND BEGAN TO RISE AND FEAR FILLED THEIR HEARTS. THEY WERE AFRAID OF LOSING THEIR LIVES IN THE MIST OF THE SEA. GOD DOES NOT SEND US OUT TO DIE IN THE MIST OF A SEA, WHEN HE SENT US TO THE OTHER SIDE. GOD ALWAYS PROVIDES OUR NEED, AND NEVER WILL HE LEAD US INTO BATTLE AND TURN HIS BACK ON US. THE OTHER SIDE WAS HIS INSTRUCTIONS. NOW WHEN THEY ARRIVED "ON THE OTHER SIDE" WE SEE THEY WERE MET BY A MAN WITH UNCLEAN SPIRITS. THIS MAN WHEN INTRODUCED TO JESUS WAS DELIVERED. NOW THIS WAS NOT JUST AN EVERY DAY DELIVERY, BUT HIS NAME WAS LEGION, FOR THERE WERE MANY. PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS DO YOU SEE HOW THAT GREAT WAS THE BATTLE ON THE SEA, AND GREAT WAS THE REWARD. THEY NEVER THOUGHT THAT WHEN HE SAID " Let us pass over unto the other side." SUCH A SIMPLE TASK WOULD LEAD TO SUCH A GREAT BATTLE AND A GREAT VICTORY. THERE'S ALWAYS A REASON
