    Parable of the blind man, he was blind because he perceived Jesus as the Son of David and not correctly as the Son of God. Bartimaeus was told to be peaceful but he would not as his belief is Jesus is a son of man, not a son of God. A garment in scripture symbolically represents a belief and his belief that Jesus is not the Son of God was cast away. Bartimaeus repented, gained sight and was saved.

    Baptism is for remission of sin not DEATH. Jesus did not have to die for you to be saved. Proven when Jesus prayed for the cup of death to be removed. People are vessels, cups. Jesus prayed for the Antichrist to be removed. Even antichrist will give his life to win World War 3
  • Randolph W Malachi
    I think Jesus never can fail.
  • Judith
    The truth prevails in this verse when you least expects it. Today's daily verse of Mark 10:27 is on time. I needed it, it reveal and reminded me of how much God is in charge and how much He wants us to depend on Him. GOD only knows how much it was reveal to me.
