Discussion for Mark 1

    40 days: Genesis 50:2-3 And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father: and the physicians embalmed Israel. And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are fulfilled the days of those which are embalmed: and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days. 40 days of death of Israel. Israel wanted Jesus to be their Messiah if Jesus would follow their rule.

    Disciple,I am sorry I have caused such an obvious upset in you. I do not seek wrath.
    My hope has been to enlighten people to the things that are not typically taught. It is a shock to have things brought to the forefront that are usually white washed and discounted at not important, or the things that many say "a loving God would not do that". God is who he says he is, and who can change him.

    Its NOT the Scriptures! Its the MIS-use of the Scriptures to continually find fault with others, WHO HAVE DONE YOU NO HARM! Typical self-centered, "don't you dare correct ME" response! May I direct your attention to Hebrews 12, which, IF you read it carefully, clearly makes the connection between keeping one's self clean and right with the Lord, and receiving correction..."chastisement" as a son!
  • Lu2677
    "Burr under my saddle" Why does the scripture that I write offend you? Jesus wants people that are not offended in him.
  • A disciple
    Lu2677; Why do got such a burr under your saddle? It seems like you just wanna be peeved at everyone, and beat 'em up over phrases and words? How about "love one another AS I HAVE LOVED YOU?" Is that really how you expect the Lord is thinking about you, and watching over you with a ruler in His hand, ready to smack you as quickly as you might not cross your T exactly right? C'mon, Brother!
  • Lu2677
    Bruce,Mark 1:10-13 After Jesus was baptized by John and the Spirit descended on him, "immediately" the Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan for forty days.I don't know of any teaching in the Bible that says when God calls someone they will be in the wilderness for forty days being tempted by Satan.Nor does it say there has to be a "tug on the heart."
