People's Bible Notes for Mark 16:16

Mr 16:16 He that believeth. Believeth the gospel message; believes in Christ as his Savior. And is baptized. These are the condition of pardon; faith in Christ and obedience to his command. If any one has not faith enough in Christ to obey him, he has not faith enough to be saved. He that believeth not. Remains in a state of unbelief. Such have no promise. See Joh 3:18.

Discussion for Mark 16

  • Alton b chapman sr.
    this scripture is so powerful yet not received in faith, for by teaching the whole truth of gods word , Gods word will be confirmed by healing miracles and many signs and wonders as in the days of jesus, I have and do witness these miracles often, as all born again Christians should, God bless all who believe obey and search for the real truth, God is willing to heal when we obey.
  • Anonymous for verse 15
    We are the highest class of all creatures. We have a choice to serve or not to serve. So it is admonishing us to share God's words to everyone, regardless our nation, tongue, people culture. He died for everyone and we are to share that.He is our Lord and Saviour who came to save the world from their sins.
  • Any Lutherans out there? This verse was referenced on my infant baptismal certificate. I was on my to hell until I was born again by power of the Holy Spirit! Then, I decided to follow Jesus example in belierer's baptismNote in the following verses what evidences follow a true believer. Look in the book of Acts to discover shipwrecked Paul's fulfillment of these prophetic verses. Luther risked his life on what the scriptures taught and did not believe the educated religious leaders of his day. The KJV Bible is the most reliable English version out there. Study to know the truth!

    Mark 16 v 16:Do you believe in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ? If you believe why not get baptized in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ? If you do you shall be saved,if you don't you are dammed.

    Joni G the Holy Spirit moves in all peoples including the deaf and lame. People need not hear to be able to believe because the Holy Spirit works in ways beyond our limited human understanding. We that hear and have all of our senses should be all the more humbled by what we do have and give of ourselves all the more. In Jesus name being also Immanuel, Amen.
