Wesley's Notes for Mark 9:25


9:25 Thou deaf and dumb spirit - So termed, because he made the child so. When Jesus spake, the devil heard, though the child could not. I command thee - I myself now; not my disciples.


Discussion for Mark 9

  • Peter A. Okebukola
    At the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow. Christ reminds us in this chapter that if we call on Him, He will answer and at the mention of His Name, we can do what ordinarily, we are unable to do.
  • A disciple
    "And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief." Unbelief is a moral error; not a weakness! Where in the whole Bible did you ever read, that God sympathized with, or "understood" their stubbornness and disobedience? Feeling pain, and seeing and experiencing apparent contradictions of evil; does not change the truth of the LORD.
  • Breeze
    Just read this the other day in my devotions. It's good to be encouraged. Do we believe God is willing and able? This is most certainly where I struggle, which is ironic when we call oursleves "believers." But faith can be grown if we act on what we do believe
  • Geraldine Bulos
    Yes, by faith God can move mountains...
  • I AM
    But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit. Little children and soldiers in Christ Jesus, Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour.
  • Irene123
    V.24 - Lord, I believe; help thou my unbelief". What an absolutely beautiful prayer; he was honest with Jesus.
