When they came back down the mountain to the other disciples, they saw a huge crowd around them, and the religion scholars cross-examining them. As soon as the people in the crowd saw Jesus, admiring excitement stirred them. They ran and greeted him. He asked, “What’s going on? What’s all the commotion?”
A man out of the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought my mute son, made speechless by a demon, to you. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and goes stiff as a board. I told your disciples, hoping they could deliver him, but they couldn’t.”
A man out of the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought my mute son, made speechless by a demon, to you. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and goes stiff as a board. I told your disciples, hoping they could deliver him, but they couldn’t.”
19–20  Jesus said, “What a generation! No sense of God! How many times do I have to go over these things? How much longer do I have to put up with this? Bring the boy here.” They brought him. When the demon saw Jesus, it threw the boy into a seizure, causing him to writhe on the ground and foam at the mouth.
21–22  He asked the boy’s father, “How long has this been going on?”
“Ever since he was a little boy. Many times it pitches him into fire or the river to do away with him. If you can do anything, do it. Have a heart and help us!”
23  Jesus said, “If? There are no ‘ifs’ among believers. Anything can happen.
24  No sooner were the words out of his mouth than the father cried, “Then I believe. Help me with my doubts!”
25–27  Seeing that the crowd was forming fast, Jesus gave the vile spirit its marching orders:Dumb and deaf spirit, I command you—Out of him, and stay out!” Screaming, and with much thrashing about, it left. The boy was pale as a corpse, so people started saying, “He’s dead.” But Jesus, taking his hand, raised him. The boy stood up.
28  After arriving back home, his disciples cornered Jesus and asked, “Why couldn’t we throw the demon out?”
29  He answered, “There is no way to get rid of this kind of demon except by prayer.”
There aint No If’s...All Things Are possible
Jesus had just finished speaking with Elijah & Moses up on the mountain, and has returned to find the Church in an uproar… His leaders are unable to full-fill the assignment given to them
So he asks the question whats goin on?
I wonder if he is asking the same thing today.. Whats Goin On
The Message Chapter 9

17–18  A man out of the crowd answered, “Teacher, I brought my mute son, made speechless by a demon, to you. Whenever it seizes him, it throws him to the ground. He foams at the mouth, grinds his teeth, and goes stiff as a board. I told your disciples, hoping they could deliver him, but they couldn’t.”

The spirit is called dumb (or mute) because the boy whom it possessed was mute (and deaf, as well, v. 25), presumably as a result of being possessed by the unclean spirit

Dumb spirit would be rendered in many languages ‘a spirit which makes him dumb,’ ‘a demon which keeps him from speaking’ or ‘a spirit which makes him so that he cannot speak.’ In some languages, however, dumb is rendered by an idiomatic phrase, e.g. ‘his heart is closed’ (Tzeltal), in which case it would be the spirit which causes this condition

One of the most easiest ways for a unclean spirt to enter someone is a person with a closed heart to the things of God
I promise you it’s a lot of devils i mean christians walking around speaking in a unknown tongue, and there heart is far from God.

The Message Chapter 9

Jesus said, “What a generation! No sense of God! How many times do I have to go over these things? How much longer do I have to put up with this? Bring the boy here.”

I sense a little frustration coming from Jesus, and i mean i get it!! He has just had a powerful conversation with the two previous most influential leaders In Isreal to then step into a realm of people who have no sense of God and no sense of what God is capable of doing…
You people have no faith. How long must I stay with you? How long must I put up with you?
You people have no faith. How long must I stay with you? How long must I put up with you?
New Century Version ().
New Century Version. (2005). (). Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, Inc.
You Can Always Tell That Your Close to seeing deliverance, in your home, in your loved on, in your ministry & in the Church..

So the followers brought him to Jesus. As soon as the evil spirit saw Jesus, it made the boy lose control of himself, and he fell down and rolled on the ground, foaming at the mouth.

When that devil see’s Jesus its over
tell somebody with ashy lips let them see Jesus.....
2. Your going to have to investigate when did it start!!!

Jesus asked the boy’s father, “How long has this been happening?”

The father answered, “Since he was very young. The spirit often throws him into a fire or into water to kill him.

When Did It Begin 4 U?
3. Your Vocabulary has to be Faith driven, Faith inspired & Faith fed..

If you can do anything, do it. Have a heart and help us!”

When You Believe God Anything Can Happen!!!
There are 7 Currencies of the Kingdom of God
1.) Time: How you spend your time shows what you value. In the kingdom there is equality and we all have been given the same amount of time (24 hours in a day), but how we spend that time is determined by what you value. If you want to know what you value, evaluate that on which you spend your time.
2.) Choices: Everyone has been given a free will, another equalizer in the kingdom; what we choose, whether to obey God or disobey God, determines our level of prosperity in the kingdom. says, "Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit, will from the Spirit reap eternal life" (NASB).
3.) Words: Our words are our seeds that we plant and when they grow produce a harvest in our lives. What we sow, we grow; our words are our seeds. is speaking about our words that grow unforgiveness, unbelief, etc. Solomon said it best, "Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit" ().
4.) Hope: Confident expectation of good. No matter what you see, you know God is good. says, "Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us" (NASB). Hope is expectancy that God is always good.
5.) Love: The absence of fear! Fearless people are lovers and love wins.
6.) People:  says, "For God so loved the world [nations, ethnic groups of the world] that He gave His one and only Son ..." (NIV). People are of an extremely high value in the kingdom of God; how you treat them is of the utmost importance to God.
7.) Faith: The more you agree with God, the more faith you get. The more you believe what you read in the Word of God, the wealthier you are in the kingdom. Faith is walking in agreement with God.

11 Now faith is the ||substance of things hoped for, athe evidence of bthings not seen. 2 For cby it dthe elders eobtained a good report. 3 Through faith we understand that fthe worlds were gframed by hthe word of God, so that things which are seen iwere not made of things which do appear.

strength, power, wealth’

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for rhe that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is sa rewarder of them that tdiligently seek him.

23 Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth

Pops said i believe but help me with my doubts
because its hard to really not to have doubts when my son is acting really weird
its hard not to have doubts when financially i am broke
its hard not to have doubts when the pain is still there
Its hard not to have doubts when if it wasn’t for bad luck you wouldn’t have luck at all....
Luck and chance are for loosers.. we are winners so blessing and favor is what we have..
Overcoming your reality requires faith.. because the moment Jesus shows up and that devil knows his time has expired he really shows his tail......
And ALL Things Are Possible
