Discussion for Mark 1

  • Apostle David
    In verse 30-31 Jesus showed his power as the Son of God. Is amazing that Christians don't even know they have power so they suffer in all they do.Lets be who we are in the kingdom.
  • Eric
    The Gospel of God cometh only from God, our Father which art in heaven. Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: Father, the hour is come glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee: As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent. The mercy of man is toward his neighbour but the mercy of the Lord is upon all flesh: he reproveth, and nurtureth, and teacheth and bringeth again, as a shepherd his flock. Let the LORD, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation, And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
  • Eric
    ll flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. For God made not death: neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living. For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye. For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
  • Janice
    The book of Mark reveals the power Jesus had when he appeared, Mark describes him as one who he's not worthy to untie his shoes, Jesus shows himself to be above and far beyond man imagination, one that cannot be copied or replace, so he came on a mission to heal deliver and set the captive free from sickness and decease, which is expected of Apostle's prophet's evangelist pastor's and teacher's.
  • Stephen F. Zielski
    PARADOX ! FOR THY NAMES SAKE OH LORD ! SEND ELIJAH ! SHALOM ISRAEL ZION ! COME LORD YESHUA JESUS GLORY AMEN AND AMEN INDEED !
