Mark 4:35-41 NKJV

On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side." [36] Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him. [37] And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. [38] But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?" [39] Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. [40] But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" [41] And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"


Jesus after preaching and teaching to the multitudes and his disciples all day tells his disciples we are going over to the other side…


Faith comes by hearing the preached word.. Roman 10:17.


Jesus preached on the parable of the sower, not hiding your light under a basket, the growing seed, the mustard seed… a day you could say that was full of faith… a full convention of mountain moving faith…


Not only did Jesus preach and teach all day in parables… He took the time to expound and explain these parables and the application to His disciples..


The Word, Jesus Himself plainly declaring the power and kingdom for a whole day…


Now it’s time to move… it’s time to get to the other side where a great awakening is about to erupt..


But on the way ….



Mark 4:35 NKJV

On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side."


This Word was just as powerful as all the days words He spoke …


Still living… still able to produce…. Still powerful


Hebrews 4:12 NKJV

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


Psalm 147:15 NKJV

He sends out His command to the earth; His word runs very swiftly.


Let us cross over to the other side !!!


On the way


Mark 4:37 NKJV

And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.


Great : mega exceedingly great


Windstorm : whirlwind a violent agitation and stream of air


As a result of this great mega violent agitation stream of air,  the waters began to stir..   so much that the boat was filling with water and looked like it could tip..


Maybe the disciples were tired from the day..


  • Tired

  • Circumstances

  • Fear

  • Natural response


Mark 4:38 NKJV

But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"


Fear is a liar …


instead of holding onto the WORD  they looked at their circumstances and opened the door to a spirit of fear..


How many times does the Bible say do not fear ? My search found 72 verses


2 Timothy 1:7 NKJV

For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.


It’s a spirit sent from hell to get you to agree with your circumstances..

  • what you see happening …

  • what looks like a failure.. disaster..

  • broken …

  • going under …



  • all these are possibilities from the spirit of fear… brining with it real emotional turmoil..


Notice the spirit of fear will also accuse God for not caring about you…


Mark 4:38 NKJV

But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, "Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?"


Yet the Word of God tells us He cares for us..


1 Peter 5:7 NKJV

casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.


How many times do you need to hear that Jesus loves you ??


You’re not appointed to death but you are appointed to life… and Jesus was on his way to a great appointment of life for a whole region..


He loves you



John 15:16 NKJV

You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you


2 Thessalonians 2:13 NKJV

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren


beloved by the Lord,


because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth,


What is the TRUTH ??


How is it that I’m almost about to drown yet I’ve been appointed to life… I’m loved … I’ve been chosen by Jesus … how come he has let me suffer this storm …


What is the truth ??


John 1:17 NKJV

For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.


John 8:32 NKJV

And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."


John 14:6 NKJV

Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.


What is the truth are they going to drown ??  Will they perish in the storm ??


John 3:16-21 NKJV

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. [17] For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. [18] "He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. [19] And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. [20] For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. [21] But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."


Galatians 2:20 NKJV

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.


Ephesians 2:4-8 NKJV

But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, [5] even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), [6] and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, [7] that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. [8] For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,


When Jesus says we are going to the other side … there is power in those words to allow us to arrive there… but along the way Jesus demonstrates a powerful teaching..


  1. Jesus who is loved by the Father is asleep..


When you know you’re loved, your sleep is sweet… no matter what storm arrises … his love for you keeps you at rest… the bible says.. the Father loves you as much as Jesus..


John 17:23 NKJV

I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.



  1. Jesus understood and could discern the origin of the storm..


Being spiritual will give you the upper hand


Ephesians 2:2 NKJV

in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience,


The origin of this storm is from the devil …


Mark 4:39 NKJV

Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, "Peace, be still!" And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.


  1. Jesus stood up….


You will be required to make a stand if you want to do Gods will… to obey the words “ let us cross over to the other side “. In this instance required a spiritual alertness … to have faith in those words and recognise there is an enemy preventing the success of this mission…


We tend to focus more on the waves but those who are discerning and spiritual will see the waves are just the product of a demonic stirring of the wind…


Jesus dealt with the wind…


Rebuke : forbid..admonish sharply .. take charge .. it’s used in the sense of ruling over as a magistrate ..



Matthew 28:18 NKJV

And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.


Jesus knew what power He had been given… do you ??


Philippians 2:9-11 NKJV

Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, [10] that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, [11] and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.


1 Peter 3:22 NKJV

who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made subject to Him.


You shall receive this great power as you receive the gift of salvation and baptism of the Holy Spirit..


Acts 1:8 NKJV

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."


Jesus stood up….. using the magistrative power    Again the principalities and powers that were blowing this great wind … He took charge .. He ruled over it…



  1. Jesus then spoke to the waves “be still”


He first had to deal with the strongman before he could deal with the effects…


Mark 3:27 NKJV

No one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.


You could speak all your life to a circumstance and never get any relief … why ??    


Because you have not dealt with the demonic behind the circumstance..


Ephesians 6:12 NKJV

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.


IT takes faith in God.. to speak and see results ..


Jesus had demonstrated this daily yet his disciples were yet to grab hold … fear was still a greater reality than faith..


Jesus spoke to the fig tree and it withered from its roots within 24 hours..


Jesus marvel at the centurions faith


Luke 7:7 NKJV

[7] Therefore I did not even think myself worthy to come to You. But say the word, and my servant will be healed.


Luke 7:9-10 NKJV

When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, "I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel!" [10] And those who were sent, returning to the house, found the servant well who had been sick.


Faith in His WORDs brings results …


Mark 4:40-41 NKJV

But He said to them, "Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?" [41] And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, "Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!"


Fear is evidence there is no faith …


Hebrews 11:1-2 NKJV

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. [2] For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.


Where was the evidence that they were going to make it to the other side ??


In the Words spoken by Jesus…


These words fill us with hope so that  by faith not looking at the waves, the natural we can spiritually discern and rebuked the demonic.. then by faith speak  to the waves natural.


Our FAITH sees the substance available to us


the hope of getting to the other side fills us with the faith needed for the journey..


You are going to make it to the other side…


This will not be your outcome if you have not invited Jesus into your boat… He must be your Lord and Saviour… simply surrender your life in exchange for His.. and begin your new journey of freedom in Him…
