Bible Text: Mark 2:1-12
From the reference text, we see that it was noised that Jesus was in the house (Mark 2:1). In Matthew 18:20, Jesus said, “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.“ When Jesus is present, the Holy Ghost is present. When Jesus is in the house, there is power to bless, to heal, to deliver, to set free, etc.
Many people were gathered together; but there were no room to receive them, not even around the door. Also, Jesus was preaching unto them, sharing the Word of God (Mark 2:2). This shows that Jesus attracted the crowd. As the Bible says you will be the sought out, the so shall you be in Jesus mighty name, your life will be attractive. Everything you lay your hands to do shall be attractive; men and women will fall over themselves to bless you.
Also, the Bible tells that four friends heard Jesus was around and they
brought their paralysed friend on a flat bed to the house. They heard like
every other person and they brought their friend to Jerusalem. May God give
us friends like that in Jesus name. The Bible says we should not forsake the
assembly of the righteous because two are better than one; one can put to
flight a thousand, two ten thousand. So we have greater anointing and
power when we come together.
Looking at the paralysed man, one would see that his situation was not always like that; he was not born like that. Jesus said he was in that condition because of his sin; not the sin of his father, mother of fore-fathers (Mark 2:5). So paralysis was just a phase in his life. 1 Peter 5:10 AMP says, “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace [Who imparts all blessing and favor], Who has called you to His [own] eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make you what you ought to be, establish and ground you securely, and strengthen, and settle you.” This tells us that if you belong to Jesus, you cannot stay in any negative condition forever because there is something
you ought to be according to the original plan of God. Psalm 30:5 says,
“…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”
Your joy is knocking at the door and that door will be opened today in Jesus
Mighty Name. The paralysed man was temporarily in that condition, he had
a destiny and a destination.
What Is Destiny?
Destiny is what God created you to be; His divine purpose. Destiny is your
assignment, the original plan of God for you, a pre-determined future, God’s
agenda for your life. Destiny is also what you ought to be in life. It is God’s
design and purpose for you. It is God's pre-determined path for your life
before you were born. Destiny is a blue print, a map and a natural course of
events planned by God that will inevitably happen.
The paralysed man was a work-in-progress, God had a plan for him before
the foundations of the world. Indeed, when you look at what you are going
through right now; it is different from what God has planned for you, it is
not the end, it is just a process. Habakkuk 2:3 AMP says, “For the vision is
yet for an appointed time and it hastens to the end [fulfillment]; it
will not deceive or disappoint. Though it tarry, wait [earnestly] for
it, because it will surely come; it will not be behindhand on its
appointed day.” Your testimony will speak in Jesus Mighty Name. All those
mocking you shall see your testimony. Wait till the finishing (Micah 7:8-10).
In Jeremiah 1:5-10, Jeremiah was looking at his present situation but God
was speaking to him concerning the original plan for his life. You will carry
out God’s original plan for you and you will reach your goal in Jesus Mighty
Name (Psalm 139:15-16). Jeremiah 29:11 MSG says, “This is God’s Word
on the subject: “As soon as Babylon’s seventy years are up and not a
day before, I’ll show up and take care of you as I promised and bring
you back home. I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned
out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you
the future you hope for.”
The paralytic agreed to go with his friends to meet Jesus because he knew
his present situation was not his end, and better and greater days were
ahead. For those that have achieved, it is so difficult for the to see that
there is a higher level of glory. But there is always a higher level of glory
because the Bible says that we will go from glory to glory and we shall be
lenders to many nations. For example, the Chairman of a local government
is an honorable, in the state's House of Assembly level, we have honorable
also. Then at the Federal level, the House of Representatives members are
also cacalled honourable, but one honourable is bigger ththan another
honourable. There is aa glory of the stars, a glory of the moon and a glory
of the sun. One critical thing about the paralytic was that he could not
achieve his goal in meeting Jesus unless he received help. He could not go to
meet Jesus in his condition. Deuteronomy 28:13 says, “And the Lord shall
make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only,
and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the
commandments of the Lord thy God, which I command thee this day,
to observe and to do them:” But God would not come down physically to
do what Deuteronomy 28:13 says and physically lift you up. You need to
understand that there are some realms that you cannot reach unless God
Himself activates destiny helpers to help you.
Who Are Destiny Helpers And What Do They Do?
Destiny helpers connect you to the top (not the bottom); they facilitate your
destiny, they add value, they are strategically positioned to help you arrive
at your expected end, they go out of their way to help you, they help you
navigate through all obstacles, they help you succeed (in your career,
family, business, etc), they excavate barriers for you, they fight on your
behalf as if the battle is theirs, they use their time and tools for you, they
use their own network to open up opportunities for you, they are positioned
by God to make your way smooth, they are ordained by God to assist, they
share experiences, scars, counsel and wisdom that would save you the pain
and frustration that they have been through, destiny helpers come to meet
you when they know you need help, they don’t wait for you to come to them
(they notice you), destiny helpers bear your burdens; Galatians 3:6. Job said
in Job 29:15-16 15-16that I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the
lame, I was father to the poor, and the cause which I knew not I searched
These are characteristics of destiny helpers.
Destiny helpers are also tools used by the Almighty God to manifest His
plans for you. Destiny helpers connect you. Destiny helpers lift you up when
you are down. They mentor you, advise you and give you feedback when
they feel you are going in directions that you ought not to go. They are
shoulders for you to lean on when you feel depressed.
The friends in the reference text were destiny helpers. They tried to go in
through the door, did not make it but did not give up. Those that God has
ordained to help you will not give up in Jesus Mighty Name. These friends
knew that if a door is shut, there is another door open at the top. They used
their efforts to ensure their paralysed friend would reach Jesus.
Examples Of Some Destiny Helpers In The Bible
1. Jethro and Moses: Jethro was a destiny helper to Moses (Genesis 18).
He went to meet Moses on his own volition, and advised Him on how to
appoint and delegate elders to attend to the people of Israel. He gave Moses
2. Joseph, the butler and the baker: While in prison, Joseph was the one
who looked at the eyes of butler and baker and noticed that they were
downcast and helped the Butler to fulfil his destiny (Genesis 40:6-7). The
Bible says we need to bear each other's burdens so that we fulfifulfil the law
of Christ. You need to be a burden bearer.
3.Namaan and the maid: In 2 Kings 5:3, it was a maid God used to help
Namaan. Indeed maids are named 'househelps', positioned to help you, and
not to be defiled by you. God can use anybody to help you.
4. Elijah and the widow of Zarephath: In 1 Kings 17:12-13, God saved
the widow of Zarephath from death and sent Elijah to help her.
5. Mordecai and Esther: Esther was an orphan but her uncle, Mordecai,
who knew she was beautiful, kept her and trained her. When the time came,
he introduced her to greatness.
6. Hannah and Eli: With all the issues Eli had, he was the destiny helper
God used to unlock Hannah’s barreness. All Hannah needed was a
declaration and a proclamation from a priest to reach her goal (1 Samuel
7. The Shunammite woman and Elisha: In 2 Kings 4:9, the Shunammite
woman told her husband that she perceived Elisha was a man of God and
she decided to improve their hospitality towards Elisha. It was through
prophet Elisha that she was able to have a child. May God open your eyes to
locate your destiny helper today.
The friends tried to get their paralysed friend through the door but the
people around Jesus listening to the sermon wouldn't allow them. They were
not bothered about the condition of the paralyzed man, they didn’t make
way for these four friends to see Jesus. They had no compassion, they
diverted the friends from getting through to Jesus. They are destiny killers.
Destiny killers block your dream, they divert your destiny, they cause delay,
they frustrate efforts, they only see the negative side of you, they are kill
joys. Destiny killers tell you your vision is too big, they drag you back, and
when they have dreams concerning you, such dreams are of calamity.
Destiny killers are discouragers, they are wasters (they waste your time and
waste your life), they limit you and mock you. Some destiny killers are in
your household, in Church, and around you. Destiny killers are bent on
abolishing your destiny (Ecclesiastes 10:5-7). Destiny killers weaken your
faith. If your destiny has been diverted, God would re-order it today in Jesus
Mighty Name. Any tare that has been sown in your life by the enemy will be
uprooted today in Jesus Mighty Name (Matthew 13:24-28).
An example of a destiny killer was Herod, who was bent on abolishing the
destiny of others (Matthew 2:1-18). Another example is Sanballat and
Tobiah in Nehemiah 2:10, who said the vision was to large; they were
discouragers. If your destiny killers don’t change, God will trouble them; He
would take away their peace, He would give them an assignment they
cannot complete (Acts 23:12). If your destiny killers do not change, God
would send them on a journey of no return in Jesus Mighty Name.
The Helper of Helpers
But the Chief and Original Helper is the Almighty God, the King of kings, the
LORD of lords, the One that positions people to help you, He is the Helper of
the helpless, He is the very present help in times of trouble, He is the glory
and the lifter up of our heads, He is the Original Promoter, He is the One
that can demote someone in order to elevate you, He activates helpers for
you to make you reach your goal in life. God Almighty will activate your
helpers and send them your way to lift you up today in Jesus Mighty Name.
From the reference text, God engineered it and took the paralysed man to
the top where no evil one, power or principality could touch him. God
ordered his life and God’s ordained destiny for him came to pass.
In Mark 2:12, after Jesus healed the paralytic and forgave him his sins, he
immediately arose, took up his bed and walked past those who had earlier
not made a way for him (Psalm 23:5). Where there was no way before, God
will make a way for you in Jesus Mighty Name. These people had to bow
because he had received a touch from God. At the end of it all, his testimony
spoke for him. God says He will not leave you (Genesis 28:5). Your destiny
helpers will not die until they have fulfilled the plan of God for your life. God
will preserve your destiny helpers in Jesus Mighty Name.
However, when this man came to Jesus, Jesus said his calamity was caused
by his sins. He came to Jesus and brought his burdens to Jesus. Do you have
burdens, issues, problems, struggles, etc? Have you surrendered your life to
Jesus? Are you still leaving in sin? The root cause of problems is unconfessed
sins. Come to Jesus today, tell Him about all your pains, burdens and
struggles. Jesus is the solution, He is the answer. Jesus would accept you;
He would lift your burdens, take away your struggles, silence and terminate
all those who want to delay you, He would activate destiny helpers to locate
you, give you a brand new lease of life and write your name in the Book of
CONNECT WITH YOUR DESTINY HELPERS
By OLU MIKE OMOASEGUN
Text: Mark 2:1-12
Everyone has a purpose of be a man or woman. We are all destiny to fulfill one specific thing or
the other. In order to fulfill it, there are helpers assigned to help us accomplish greater thing in
life. At the same time, there are helpers assigned to help us get out of the problem(s) that have
been battle with us, either in academics, marriage, finances, health, etc.
A man in our text is typical example of a man who needs helpers to get out of his situation. He
was a paralyzed man, sick for many years that only God known. But those that have assigned for
his healing carried their mission successfully.
FOUR MAJOR THINGS WITH THESE HELPERS:
1. They were not wearing until they fulfill there mission. As they were not nauseating, I pray that
your helper with not wearing until they finish helping you.
2. They were not tired until they finished their helping assignment with him.
3. They did not see it as burden but see it as responsibility that must be done by them.
4. They make sure that they brought the man to where he should be.
5. They seen it that the man becomes what he should be.
THE RESULTS (OUTCOME) OF THEIR HELPS:
1. The man they help got to where he should be. The man was lay down at the presence of Jesus
Christ- Luke 5:19. There is a place that God wants you to be, you will be there with the help of
2. The man was ahead of other people. Hundreds of people had been in the house where Jesus
was, but the man that brought late is ahead of them. It was the story of the man that was noted
majorly in the journey of Jesus Christ there. When divine helpers help you, you will surely be
ahead of others that have started before you. In your office or place of work, when God raise
your helpers to help you, you must superior than other people. You must be an achiever more
than your colleagues.
3. He got what he should get – Solution to his problem. Forgiveness and healing is the major
needs of the man, and he got it. I want you to take note of one thing: the helpers of the man have
it in mind for man to be healed, but Jesus Christ makes additional need (forgiveness of sins) to it.
There some things you but you don’t know them, but God know them and He will surely give
them to you.
4. His enemies were put to shame. Luke 5:25-26. Some of the people that were there, did not
want the man to be healed or freed from his problem were later disappointed. God will
disappoint your enemies in your presence.
WHAT YOU SHOULD DO NOW:
1. Be in the presence of Jesus Christ. Until the man was in the presence of Christ, he was not set
freed or healed from his sickness, so also you must be in Jesus presence. Jesus said: “Come to
me, all of you who are tired of carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28
Good News Version. In other words, surrender your life to Him. Allow Him to do it for you; stop
moving around seeking for solution where there is no solution. Jesus Christ is the only that an
solve your problem for you; you just need to come to Him.
2. Confess all your sins and Pray for the forgiveness.
3. Pray for helpers that have assigned to help you.
1. Thanks God for this message and what God is going to do for you.
2. Ask for the forgiveness of all your sins
3. My God my Lord, don’t allow my helpers to tire or weary until they help me.
4. As from this moment, cause all my helper to help me completely.
5. My helpers where are you, it is time for you to locate me and help me.
6. Anything that hinder or stop my helpers to help me, I command them to destroy today in Jesus
7. Those that refused to help, today remember to help me until I finish what I began.
8. Those that will help me to get to my place of destiny, my God cause them to help me now.
9. Those that will carry me to that glorious position that have been destiny for me, my Lord my
God, cause my helpers to carry me there without delay in Jesus name.
10. In the presence of my enemies, I will arise and fulfill my destiny.
