Discussion for Mark 1

  • Irene123
    To M. Balatiheng - Where do you see that John the Baptist at a later time ate people ate? The Bible has NOTHING to say about what he ate a ta later time. Be careful - Rev. 22:18-19.
  • Bruce
    Maipelo: He's poor. He wears what is easiest to come by. The food he ate was his choice. The honey made eating locusts a lot easier, something you could swallow! He ate and dressed the same all the way to death.
    He was filled with The Spirit before birth. The Holy Spirit Surely helped him with life choices. Put on Christ! Feed on the Word only! That's the message. Be like John. Don't change!
  • Bruce
    Zielski: Elijah was here before Christ and died before Christ he was, John the Baptist:Matthew17:10-13, Luke1:17( talking about John the Baptist) Soon the Trump will sound! Today? A million years from now makes no difference he's coming for the "Called" John 6:44, Cleansed: 1John1:9. Baptized by the HolyGhost and Fire! Matthew3:11. Changed! You will know! 2Corinthians5:17. Impossible not to know!

    In the name of Jesus, We can be made Whole!
