Here are the GUARANTEES when God works:

18 And, behold, men brought in a bed a man which was taken with a palsy: and they sought means to bring him in, and to lay him before him.
men” - andres: adult men (plural of man as in 1 Timothy 3:2 “andra”)
Their compassion.
Their character.
Their cooperation.
brought” - to move while holding up.
Hold up in prayer. Tell God about the person.
Hold up in purpose. Tell the person about God.
NIV, CSB, ESV, LB, NAS, NKJV all change “palsy” to paralyzed.
Why?
They transliterated the Greek word paralyo which means to disable; weaken.
After fussing about the KJV translators transliterating baptizo to baptize being wrong to do now they do it.
Do you see their hypocrisy yet?

II. The Palsied Man’s Associates. v.19

19 And when they could not find by what way they might bring him in because of the multitude, they went upon the housetop, and let him down through the tiling with his couch into the midst before Jesus.
The loving preacher. He preached on God’s worship.
The legal preacher. He preached on God’s Word.
The light preacher. He preached on God’s way.
The laboring preacher. He preached on God’s work.

III. The Palsied Man’s Assurance. vs.20-23

20 And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.
21 And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?
22 But when Jesus perceived their thoughts, he answering said unto them, What reason ye in your hearts?
23 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?

Conclusion:

Are you more like the leper?
Are you more like the palsied man?
Are you more like the Pharisees?
