"GOT IT?"
Mar 8:21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?
by Pastor Tony Sutton

JESUS SHOWED COMPASSION FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE WILDERNESS BY FEEDING THEM, THEY SHOWED FAITHFULNESS BY STAYING WITH HIM FOR THREE DAYS WITHOUT FOOD.
  • Mark 8:2 I have compassion on the multitude, because they have now been with me three days, and have nothing to eat:
HE FED 4,000 WITH 7 LOAVES OF BREAD AND A FEW FISHES.
  • Mark 8:8 So they did eat, and were filled: and they took up of the broken meat that was left seven baskets.
THEY SOUGHT AFTER THE FLASHY THINGS IN LIFE.
  • Mark 8:11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
  • Mark 8:12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
THE DISCIPLES WERE LOOKING AT THE NEEDS OF THE FLESH INSTEAD OF THE SPIRITUAL NEEDS.
  • Mark 8:15 And he charged them, saying, Take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.
  • Mark 8:16 And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have no bread.

JESUS QUESTIONED THEIR STABILITY "HAS YOUR HEART ALREADY HARDENED?"

  • Mark 8:17 And when Jesus knew it, he saith unto them, Why reason ye, because ye have no bread? perceive ye not yet, neither understand? have ye your heart yet hardened?
DO YOUR EYES SEE, YOUR EARS HEAR?
  • Mark 8:18 Having eyes, see ye not? and having ears, hear ye not? and do ye not remember?
  • Mark 8:19 When I brake the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? They say unto him, Twelve.
  • Mark 8:20 And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took ye up? And they said, Seven.
  • Mark 8:21 And he said unto them, How is it that ye do not understand?

BE SURE THAT GOD WILL SUPPLY ALL OUR NEED!!!

  • PRACTICAL
  • PHYSICAL
  • SPIRITUAL
JESUS SHOWED US THE WAY. HE HAS NOT CHANGED, NOR HAS HE FORGOTTEN. HE DID IT FOR THEM, HE WILL DO IT FOR US. AS WE SEE IN THIS PASSAGE, THE PEOPLE LOOKED TO A CARNAL SOLUTION, RATHER THAN TO A SPIRITUAL ONE, EVEN THOUGH JESUS HAD JUST FED A MULTITUDE WITH PRACTICALLY NOTHING. DON'T ALLOW SATAN TO USE YOU. LOOK TO JESUS FOR ALL THINGS!!!
