Wesley's Notes for Mark 9:20


9:20 When he saw him - When the child saw Christ; when his deliverance was at hand. Immediately the spirit tore him - Made his last grand effort to destroy him. Is it not generally so, before Satan is cast out of a soul, of which he has long had possession?

    "And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea." The Lord has COMMANDED us to be of one mind and to all speak the same things, all in One Spirit! When we speak about the things of the Lord we must do so in love and for One end; as WE also must be saved, and FIRST give account.
