Gatherers With Christ

Matthew 12:22-30 NIV

  

  1. JESUS CAME TO   TO HIMSELF.

Matthew 12:22–23 Then they brought him a demon-possessed man who was blind and mute, and Jesus healed him, so that he could both talk and see. All the people were astonished and said, “Could this be the Son of David?” 

 

  1. THE ENEMY   PEOPLE AWAY FROM JESUS.

Matthew 12:24 But when the Pharisees heard this, they said,
“It is only by Beelzebul, the prince of demons, that this fellow drives out demons.”
 

 

  1. THE TRUE   OF GOD HAS WON THE WAR FOR US!

Matthew 12:29a “But if it is by the Spirit of God that I drive out demons,
then the kingdom of God has come upon you.”

Mat. 12:29b “Or again, how can anyone enter a strong man’s house and carry off his possessions unless he first ties up the strong man? Then he can plunder his house.”  

  1. THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE:  .

Matthew 12:30“Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” 

 

LET US GATHER PEOPLE WHILE WE’RE SCATTERED.

  • Even while we are isolated, let’s ENGAGE with others…

Expanded studio audiences during streaming services.

Will you be faithful in your giving? 
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”  

Let’s pray for a resolution to this crisis!

In this series, we are picking up where we left off in chapter 9 and going on through chapter 13. We'll be covering the importance of getting Jesus' identity right, his healing miracles, discipleship, and several parables. This series will take us through the first half of 2020.
