Wesley's Notes for Mark 10:14


10:14 Jesus seeing it was much displeased - At their blaming those who were not blame worthy: and endeavouring to hinder the children from receiving a blessing. Of such is the kingdom of God - The members of the kingdom which I am come to set up in the world are such as these, as well as grown persons, of a child - like temper.

    mark 10:38 but JESUS said unto them you know not what you ask can you drink of the cup that I drink of and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with 10:39 and they said unto HIM we can and JESUS said unto them you shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall you be baptized

    Bartimaeus is an encouragement. When others tried to discourage him, he continued to cry out until the Lord healed him. This is great news for those facing opposition. Some people may believe we pray for a lost cause, but press on. If it be of the Lord, it shall be.

    BSP says above, "the different positions in heaven were not his to give." It was not the positions in heaven that were at stake. This is why Jesus told them, "Ye know not what ye ask..." It was the positions on the crosses on either side of the crucified Jesus that was "given to them for whom it is prepared." James and John were unwittingly asking to be crucified with Jesus "in His glory".

    SPIRIT---COLOSSIANS 1:27 TO WHOM GOD WOULD MAKE KNOWN WHAT IS THE RICHES OF THE GLORY OF THIS MYSTERY AMONG THE GENTILES WHICH IS CHRIST IN YOU THE HOPE OF GLORY JOHN 6:63 IT IS THE SPIRIT THAT QUICKENETH THE FLESH PROFITETH NOTHING THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE -------PHILPPIANS 2:21 FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRISTS
  • A disciple
    (42-45) The Times of the Gentiles, and of their form of Dominion over the earth, is coming to its completion and demise: the things that have so deeply held the minds and souls of men in darkness and bondage and hostile opposition to the Lord; are about to be taken away for ever, by the Coming of our Lord and Saviour. It is important that we know the difference between His Spirit and the world's.
  • Irene123
    V. 32 - "........and Jesus went before them .........." He always goes before us - IF we are walking with Him in HIS truth. He went before us in persecutions even he was crucified. He went before us in hunger, in cold, heat, poverty (no where to live). He went before us in it all - as our example, along with loving the sinner, yet hating the sin, in forgiveness, in WITNESSING.
