The Effects of When Jesus Crashes Your Pool Party (John 5:1-9)Evangelist Brent Carr, January 6, 2019
Part of the Winter Revival 2019 series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sunday Morning, January 6th, 2019 - When Jesus Crashes Your Pool Party - Evangelist Brent Carr
This morning we kicked off our 2019 Winter Revival with Evangelist Brent Carr with a discussion on pool parties. Sounds like a weird topic for a Winter Revival doesn't it? Bro. Brent talked to us not just about pool parties, but party crashers too!
In the book of John we see Jesus Himself crash a pool party at a place called Bethesda. Many broken men and women gathered around that pool that day, waiting for the waters to move, so they may enter and be healed. But Jesus saw a man lying there, approached him, and healed him!
What happens when Jesus shows up? What happens when He crashed that pool party on the porches of Bethesda? He can fix the brokenness!

1After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. 3In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of the water. 4For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had. 5And a certain man was there, which had an infirmity thirty and eight years. 6When Jesus saw him lie, and knew that he had been now a long time in that case, he saith unto him, Wilt thou be made whole? 7The impotent man answered him, Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pool: but while I am coming, another steppeth down before me. 8Jesus saith unto him, Rise, take up thy bed, and walk. 9And immediately the man was made whole, and took up his bed, and walked: and on the same day was the sabbath.
