MIC DROP 1 – The BOOM of His Words
Sunday, June 7, 2020
Pastor Troy Brewer, OpenDoor Church, Burleson, Texas
If you study history, which to me is really the study of human beings in the midst of the circumstances of history. And if you were to look at King Jesus through the lens of His humble humanity, it might make you miss how great He really is.
He was born in an obscure village, the child of a teenage peasant girl. It was rumored he born outside of wedlock.
His family were refugees in Egypt, then refugees from Egypt where He grew up in another village, Nazareth. Here, He worked in a carpenter shop until He was thirty.
Then for three years He was an itinerant preacher.
He never wrote a book.
He never held an office.
He never had a family of His own or a home.
He didn’t go to college.
He never travelled more than two hundred miles from the place where He was born.
He did none of the things that usually accompany greatness.
He had no credentials but Himself.
He was only thirty-three when the tide of public opinion turned against Him.
His friends ran away.
One of them denied Him.
He was turned over to His enemies and went through the mockery of a trial.
He was forced to walk naked through a horrible crowd in the streets of Jerusalem.
He was nailed to a cross between two thieves.
While He was dying, His executioners gambled for His garments – the only property He had on earth.
When He was dead, He was laid in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.
Why would a bunch of Texans be totally fascinated and living in jaw-dropped wonder of a poor, jewish guy who lived in Roman-occupied Israel some 2,000 years ago?
Because, He is simply the greatest human being who has ever lived and He is still alive 2000 years later!
There is nobody like my Jesus!
Centuries have come and gone, and today He is the central figure of the human race despite His humble humanity.
“All the armies that ever marched, all the navies that ever sailed, all the parliaments that ever sat, all the kings that ever reigned, put together, have not effected the life of man on this earth as much as that One Solitary Life.”
Jesus was the only person in history who did everything right—not only in saving the world but also in daily life. He brought significance into everything he did. Jesus was the greatest leader and the most influential person ever. We actually know Him personally because, again, He is alive today.
Not only did He Master life but He mastered death and overcame it. Not only did He overcome death, He rose up and slapped death in the face for the rest of us. Then He took the chains of death off of us an threw them back into hell where they belonged.
EXCUSE ME FOR BEING EXCITED AND OVER-THE-TOP, BUT WHEN WE SAY WE LOVE JESUS, WE MEAN WE LOVE JESUS.
He accomplished everything He ever tried to accomplish. He fulfilled impossible prophesies and answered unspeakable prayers.
The heavy WEIGHT of the person of Jesus is that there could be no greater influence a person could have in their life because He is God almighty in the form of a human being.
The WEIGHT of Jesus…
The WAYS of Jesus…
The WONDERS of Jesus…
The WISDOM of Jesus…
The WORKS of Jesus…
The WORDS of Jesus…
Jesus would open up His mouth and the weight, ways, wonders, wisdom and works of God would suddenly be communicated with such power and authority through the words He spoke. People would just stand there and go, “We have never heard or even imagined anything like this.”
You could ignore it because it didn’t come from the middle east. It came from heaven.
You couldn’t deny it because you could forget it. You couldn’t un-hear it.
When Jesus Christ spoke, it changed absolutely everything and that’s what I call a Holy Ghost mike drop.
Luke 2:41-52 – (The Boy Jesus Amazes the Scholars) His parents went to Jerusalem every year at the Feast of the Passover. 42 And when He was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem according to the custom of the feast. 43 When they had finished the days, as they returned, the Boy Jesus lingered behind in Jerusalem. And Joseph and His mother did not know it; 44 but supposing Him to have been in the company, they went a day’s journey, and sought Him among their relatives and acquaintances. 45 So when they did not find Him, they returned to Jerusalem, seeking Him. 46 Now so it was that after three days they found Him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers, both listening to them and asking them questions. 47 And all who heard Him were astonished at His understanding and answers. 48 So when they saw Him, they were amazed; and His mother said to Him, “Son, why have You done this to us? Look, Your father and I have sought You anxiously.”
49 And He said to them, “Why did you seek Me? Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business?” 50 But they did not understand the statement which He spoke to them.
Jesus Advances in Wisdom and Favor
51 Then He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was subject to them, but His mother kept all these things in her heart. 52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men.

John 19:28-30 – After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” 29 Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. 30 So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His Spirit.

“It is finished!”
Matthew 9:1-8 –1 So He got into a boat, crossed over, and came to His own city. 2 Then behold, they brought to Him a paralytic lying on a bed. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, be of good cheer; your sins are forgiven you.”
3 And at once some of the scribes said within themselves, “This Man blasphemes!”
4 But Jesus, knowing their thoughts, said, “Why do you think evil in your hearts? 5 For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk’? 6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins”—then He said to the paralytic, “Arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” 7 And he arose and departed to his house.
8 Now when the multitudes saw it, they marveled and glorified God, who had given such power to men.

Matthew 9:5 – For which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise and walk’?
IF YOU CAN SEE MY POWER IN HEALING, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE I HAVE POWER TO BRING PEOPLE INTO TOTAL FORGIVENESS.
The reason He has power over your sins is that He had the power over all sin, and that include the sins that tempted Him.
Luke 23:32-34 – There were also two others, criminals, led with Him to be put to death. 33 And when they had come to the place called Calvary, there they crucified Him, and the criminals, one on the right hand and the other on the left. 34 Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

John 8: 2-12 – Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.
7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”
11 She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
