  • Glynis on Mark 1
    When and where was the book of Mark written?
  • Interrogating the Facts that are in the Bible - in Reply on Mark 1
    You can Google that information and you will see differing opinions.

    Fact is that all the disciples traveled with Jesus and witnessed the same events. That is why they are called, 'Harmony of the Gospels."

    Four men saw the same things, and wrote of what they saw: with their perceptions and in their own words.

    There may have been time differences of exactly when they wrote of what they witnessed. Every one of them were killed and I'm sure trustworthy people carried the manuscripts.

    Apostle Paul wrote much of the New Testament. John who was imprisoned on Patmos, wrote the Book of Revelation; lived a long life and died in his bed.

    I'm not the right person to debate who, what and when, with.

    I believe the Bible as it is. Why? Because my salvation experience was all supernatural. It was a visual vision, but it was also in the present as I received deliverance on the spot. The Holy Spirit walked me through Acts 19:19, since I had been in the occult. I saw someone from heaven, and I got to see hell too.

    I refuse to dispute validity! It's all real.

    Ask yourselves why are you investigating the Son of God?

    Faith believes what Jesus said. You can't please God without faith? If we think we can interrogate God; just as we interrogated our own President (for 4 years!!) and dig up some dirt? you are in danger of seeing hell too. I do not recommend it.

    It is total darkness, no light. It's twisting tree roots, snakes worms and worse! It smells of rotting flesh; but it's empty. It is Unclean, filthy, polluted. Quiet. No sound yet.

    Jeremiah 29

    11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

    12 Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me and I will hearken unto you.

    13 And ye shall seek Me and find Me when ye shall search for Me with all your heart

    this saved me from committing suicide JESUS spoke this and voila the darkness was gone

    May HE bless you with peace love and joy

    Romans 8:38-39

    For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Lamentations 3:22-23

    The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

    2 Corinthians 4:16-18

    So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen.

    Philippians 4:6-7do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

    Be encouraged. We care about you.
  • Norman R Cherry on Mark 1
    Mathew 3:17 reads, "And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." In Genesis the writer indicates that God thinks that what He has accomplished is good, but in this verse of the book of Mathew and in no where else in the bible does God speak and say He is well pleased. Is that true?
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Mark 1
    God only says that once. But He does speak to humans in other parts of the bible. He spoke to Moses many times and others.
  • Andy G van den Berg on Mark 1
    Mark 1:15.

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what by nature people have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. Actually it means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).



    For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' what it means to repent and how people have been deceived (Revelation 12:9), we invite you to review the article 'Repent' on a world deceived.ca

  • Renewing Your Mind Daily - in Reply on Mark 1
    It's not what you feel about yourself. It's what God says about you in scripture.

    I think you will benefit greatly if you'll go to the links page and read what's on The Become A Christian link.

    There's a whole process we go through to be forgiven and then to be free in our heart and mind. You may need to go to

    1 John 1:9 many times like I did, and still do. It helps if you speak out loud, "I am the righteousness of God, in Christ Jesus," every time an accusatory thought sneaks in.

    If demons are Accusing you night and day, you have to make them leave with the Word of God, audibly, from your mouth. If you have been born again and received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit: then you just have a demon problem. You have to furnish your house (spirit, soul, body) with the Bible and the life that is within it.

    Read Psalms 51. It's one of my favorites for me. Read 1,2,3 John. Great info for everyone to burn into our brains. Like a Brand. Read Ephesians 6
  • Kevin mack on Mark 1
    Just looked up locust plants on the internet, big difference in the description of the plant it's actually a tree . Known as honey locust trees or black honey locust trees. Also not the same info that was in my moms bible. O well , still think this is what John probably ate. Who would chase bugs for breakfast. Plus God forbid his people to eat certain things, bugs is one of them, so I think.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Mark 1
    No. John ate the bug. I ate snails in France. Taste like chicken, but a little chewy.
  • Kevin mack on Mark 1
    Ah ! Locust, it's a plant . It looks somewhat like poison sumach when fully grown and ready to pick. It has a cone shaped cluster at the end of each branch. Also has everything in it that the body needs in nutrition, all the vitamins and minerals. It alot like a cluster of nuts and grains mixed in a cone shaped clump. Found all this out in a dictionary inside of a big family bible my mom had from 1957. It's God's granola !! Not bugs . People need to do research, not jump to conclusions.
  • Donna on Mark 1:15
    Does Mark 1:15 mean that the kingdom of God Is already here?
  • Bendito Palavra - in Reply on Mark 1
    Jesus is the King, so in a very real sense the kingdom has come. However in John 18:36 Jesus answered Pilate, "My kingdom is not of this world...". After his resurrection and ascension to the right hand of God, his kingdom is headquartered in heaven and manifested in today's rebellious world by his church, via the indwelling power of the Holy Ghost (Ephesians 1:18-23). We enter into his kingdom by believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and receiving him as our savior from our sin. In 1st Corinthians 15:24-28 we see the fullness of his kingdom, as we can also see proclaimed in Revelation 11:15-19 and realized in Revelation chapters 20-22.

    Hello Dana, God lives you very much,and He knows your heart,just the fact that you are honest pleases God,and it shows you are willing to change. In 2001 I had a bad habit,a snare,I could not stop on my own.One day on the bus I was told that even when I am in the act of fornication I could read my bible,before,after,and, I always read for 911 crisis,but I did not know it was okay to read my bible and even though I was about to sin,and I felt badly,but had wanted to have a right relationship with God so I did read my bible right after, before and during ,later on,and I cracked up because it helped me get out of the trap the residual bitterness,hurts,wounds of my soul-resentments had gotten ahold on me,reading my bible changed me. I have been chaste for Jesus since 2007 & depression gone suicidal thoughts gone. I need Jesus everyday ,throughout the day and 24/7. I Listen to 105.3FM & 1190 AM WLIB gospel contemporary music keeps me uplifted. When you speak out to God loves it when we ask for help & the bible says that God rewards those who diligently seek him. I will keep you in my prayers Dana.
  • Michael Dobson - in Reply on Mark 1
    No is a tiny word with mighty power when it is backed by the power of God. But such a hard word for us to use when not. Let god have your heart and he will empower your mind and the word no to addiction will stop it in it's tracks. 28 years clean from crack cocain read proverbs ch. 3 v. 5-6.
    Praying for you.
  • Stanjett on Mark 1
    6 And John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins and he did eat locusts and wild honey. Chocolate covered grass hoppers is not bad. Covered in honey don't sound bad either. In France they eat snails. I know I was there and ate some out of the shell, covered with butter and garlic..
  • BSP on Mark 1
    Verse 11~Jehovah God openly expressed his love and approval for his son. We should express our love for others openly and offer commendation.

    15 The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, repent ye, and believe the gospel.(2019, most minds
  • Chukwuoke Christian on Mark 1
    Mark an eyewitness of the word is true accounts of Christ Jesus,should be characterized.Christ Jesus,my redeemer and savour all that received Him.
  • BSP on Mark 1
    Verse 38~Jesus delighted in curing others and helping them physically, but his primary focus was on preaching about God's Kingdom. While charity and giving to others financially has its place, in imitation of Jesus our main focus should be on preaching the good news of God's Kingdom.
  • BSP on Mark 1
    Verse 35~Jesus had already had a busy day, but this verse shows that he got up early to pray. Though people made many demands of Jesus' time and energy, he never neglected his own spirituality.
  • Betty Ahmad on Mark 1
    Jesus is my everything. Lord I thank you for your word, Your word is true mark followed God word and believed.
  • Eutychus on Mark 1
    verse 20...leaving their father and the 'hired servants'...same Greek word "misthotos" used (only other time in NT), to define paid preachers...John 10:12,13. "But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, AND LEAVETH THE SHEEP". "the hireling fleeth BECAUSE HE IS AN HIRELING.

    So much for a paid pastorate...In Jesus' opinion at any rate.

    "
  • Angela on Mark 1
    Amen
  • Stan-Ivoke Pleroma on Mark 1
    Olu: Jesus (oh I love that name Jesus) is God but he lived his life as a man on earth. He has all the attributes of a man on earth. He became a man in other to qualify to save man. He came to teach us how to activate God's word to get result. Verse 12 shows that He prepared well before starting the soul winning job. Imagine, He just say "follow me" and its done. The job is easier when prepared.
