Discussion for Mark 11:23

  • Harold Davis for verse 23
    This scripture Jesus is revealing to all mankind, and not only his followers a dynamic, explosive, miraculous, unlimited power to create any type of desired miracle one desires, WHICH IS ACTIVE FAITH IN OUR HEARTS THROUGH SPEAKING WHATSOEVER WE WANT. Example in Joshua 10:12-14 verse's OR in Elisha the Prophet telling the Shunammite woman she was going to have a child, and she responded calling him a liar, saying dont lie unto me Man of God. But it still happen. Or David killing Goliath, and a lot more examples in the Bible. But remember these truths of unlimited power to create whatsoever one wants, is not surprising to Jesus at all, but rather regularly normal, to the extinct that even when Peter walk on water doing something only Jesus did recorded in the bible, you would think Jesus would praise Peter, but rather said where forth did you doubt, when Peter began to sink. Guess thats why Jesus said at one time or maybe many, that is not even recorded in the bible, saying Oh faithless and perverse generation, how long shall i suffer you or be with you. So no wonder it only takes faith the size of a mustard seed, CAUSE ITS NOT YOU OR I DOING IT ANYWAY, BUT GOD! Excuse if any selling is, but think you get Jesus point, not mines in this.
  • The scripture is powerful to the ones who believe if we love one another in deed and in truth,we hereby know that we are of the truth.we got to be led by the holy spirit,seek god and let the holy spirit lead and guide us.God 's spirit bear witness with our spirit when we cry out to him ex. "GOD HAVE MERCY " when we believe, the holy spirit comes into our heart, we got to believe in his word.If we believe a change in our life will take place. "FAITH " HEAL ME,O LORD AND I WILL BE HEALED,SAVE ME AND I WILL BE SAVED,FOR YOU ARE THE ONE I PRAISE.
  • God always looks on the heart, if our hearts are right with Him God may be faster to answer are prayers. Every trail we face is an opportunity to grow in faith. God also commands that when we ask ask according to his will, and not according to our lusts. Whether God chooses to heal or not it is His prerogative. What God wants is that all mankind be saved and come to the knowledge of him. God says are reward is in the next life not now. Godliness with contentment is great gain always be thankful for what we have for we really do not deserve anything.

    in the world faith is biggest.
  • Shirley for verse 23
    I found this verse to be filled with power for the saint, but how can one use it to move a problem in her marriage? How do you speak to that mountain of disrespect, deception, and ungratefulness, that no matter how good you treat the person you get this in return?
  • It powerful verse to me. I use this verse to stand in hard time. Prayers answered .
