Mark Chapter 1 Discussion

    Psalms 78:2 I will open my (God the word's) mouth in a PARABLE

    The tree OF KNOWLEDGE of good and evil.

    The fruit of that tree IS KNOWLEDGE of good and evil.

    You are the garden of Eden; the tree of knowledge of good and evil is in you, and when you come to TRUTH, then you also come to THE KNOWLEDGE that the TREE OF LIFE is also IN YOU. BUT: Cherub with sword's of FIRE surround the TREE OF LIFE; so you are going to have to go through FIRE to partake of the fruit of the TREE OF LIFE.

    Ezekiel 31:9 I (the Father) have made him (Christ) fair by the multitude of his BRANCHES (you and I): so all the trees of Eden (you and I), that were in the garden of God (you and I), envied him (Christ).

    Colossians 1:27 ....this mystery .....Christ in you .....

    Ezekiel 29:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD, they say of me, doth he not speak in PARABLES.

    God Bless You.

    Hello, the Bible says it was a fruit and never said it was an apple. Sometimes artists draw an apple, but that means nothing. Apples don't natively grow in the middle east from my understanding and think the fruit was more likely a fig or something else that is common there. Of course the garden of Eden was special and could have even had fruit not found anywhere else on earth, but the scripture only says fruit.
  • Ron on Mark 1
    When I read the word without being told what that means or go here or there. I could not find the word APPLE in the book of Gen. I did wonder why a fig leaf over the loyns not a apple leaf over the mouth, led me to just read the word. That changed my life, and truth rules not some scholar saying different. I truly hope and pray that we all check out what God says not a pastor, teacher,dad, mon, or who ever. Checking them out may save one's soul.

    I'm not sure if you follow manuscripts or not, but Matthew 17:21 is actually an addition. It is not in some manuscripts, but it actually describes what Jesus said about praying. Howbeit this kind goes not out except by prayer and fasting.

    What He means by that is bring him to me. He is not saying that prayer has some magical work to it, like pray over them and the demon will come out. He's saying it's through prayer, give him to me.

    I understand that fasting serves two purposes. Number one: To become physically weak in order to be spiritually sensitive. That's the religious meaning for fasting. You go without food and your body becomes weak in order to become spiritually sensitive.

    But also, you fast in order to lose your physical strength so that God's Spirit can use you. And that's Jesus' emphasis here, bring him to me. Make sure that you're not involved, that your flesh is not at all involved, and bring him to me.

    And again in Mark 9:29, just like the Matthew text, that little phrase "and fasting" was added to many manuscripts. Originally, it was just prayer, but if we keep the fasting in there that's not a problem.

    The important thing we need to know is that it is not part of a formula. What is the first thing Jesus said? He said the answer is, bring him to me, and if I am not here, pray! Bring him to me!
  • Larry K. Tippens on Mark 1
    Rsv bible mark 9:29 & matthew 17:21 have lost "fasting and prayer" that jesus said in kjv are both necessary to cast out evil/ demons.

    two satanic worshippers prevailed in 1963 process to leave out "fasting" in rsv.

    (note: " *saint joseph's partners" article "the power of fasting".)

    john wesley would not ordain a minister into colonial georgia methodist church who was not fasting.

    president abe lincoln declared 30 april as usa national day of fasting and prayer.

    a few days later a stray confederate bullet hit their commanding general.

    in his absence gettysburg was a turn of the civil war in favor of the union of usa.

    why are we today not fasting on bread and water on wednesdays ( day of judas' betrayal) & fridays ( the crucifiction), like early christians practiced?*)

    fasting is to humble ourselves, like wicked ahab did when elija told him god's judgement on him was all men and women in his kingdom would die. ahab fasted for a week..god spared ahab's people during his rule.

    esther 4:16 she and all jews fasted 3 days. god acted.

    the king canceled his command that they all jews be killed.

    why struggle under evil, pandemic, closed churches, war time attacks?fasting can be developed step by step.

    cardiologist, dr. p. jamnadas lectures:"the amazing benefits of "fasting for survival" as he lecture med students at fla. state univ. med school.

    (( why not reverse and cure diabetes? 80%of usa is prediabetic.

    clear brain fog? reverse cardio vascular disease? reduce waist lines to less than 40 inches?)

    this assistant med school professor describes how to, step by step, develop ability to fast.

    how about reduce risk of cancer by 70%for life time?


    lead us in developing ability to fast and pray..., as jesus expects us to do.

    lets cast out evil.

    why not?

    Thanks! That will help many.

    I think that is a wonderful idea. We do not know much about the evangelization work of the other apostles besides Peter, Paul, and John in the book of Acts, along with James, Jesus' brother from Jerusalem's congregation. They were all commissioned by Jesus to spread the gospel. I wish we had more of where they went and what they taught.

    I would like to know if there is s good source for researching a NT figure like Mark, Barnabus, etc. to find out where their ministry took them. Not a book but an online version just to satisfy my curiosity as I read about them. Can you recommend a site like that?

    Angels are God's messengers. Fallen beings impersonate they that have passed on. Moses, Elijah and Enock are not God's messengers. They will not communicate with us on the earth. The dead are asleep awaiting life eternal, or eternal death in God's light. God takes no pleasure in he eternal death of the wicked. That is eternal damnation. Wicked will look like a lake of fire.
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Mark 1
    Artie, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Christ HAS BEEN setting up HIS KINGDOM for the past two thousand years. The CHOSEN that have gone before us have been off the earth (delivered form their bodies of flesh into Christ's immortal body) and reigning and judging with Christ as messengers of SPIRIT.

    Study the PARABLE of the workers (spiritual messengers) SENT to work in Spirits vineyard (CREATION).

    Matthew 20:1-16

    The DAY (TODAY, has been happening for two thousand years) of the LORD (second coming of (the SPIRIT of) CHRIST has been happening for two thousand years. Some workers (spiritual messengers) were SENT the first hour of the day: for example; the apostles that FIRST DIED IN CHRIST (and BORN AGAIN in Truth), afterwards other workers (spiritual messengers) that DIE IN CHRIST were rewarded with the immortal body of Christ to WORK in the vineyard (the garden) of God. This thousand year reign (this ONE DAY; the DAY of the LORD) will continue UNTIL the resurrection to JUDGEMENT occurs.

    Hebrews 12:22-23

    Jesus, whose end is peace needs to be in our mind. Laws will be erased from books like crazy, had that be. People will know it being set free, not worrying about being their relaxed selves.

    Glenn, thanks for your response: "If Jesus is coming here ,. An preparing for our Father to set up his kingdom, in Jerusalem, where is anyone being raptured to ? Where ya going ? I've heard of one rapture,.. but now 3 ? This is very confusing,.."

    Precious friend, actually the confusion disappears when the THREE raptures "are LEFT In God's Contexts, Where HE Placed Them!" Amen? ie:

    PRE-TOJT rapture:

    (1) Body Of CHRIST Departure TO Heaven (Read/study Romans - Philemon) = God's 'Context' is ALL 'Spiritual!' We are not "looking for the man of sin/signs to enter into The Time of Jacob's Trouble." ( 2 Corinthians 5:7); We are "looking, watching, and Patiently waiting For CHRIST, Who Will Present ALL of The Body Of CHRIST, holy and unblameable and unreproveable, In His Sight, TO His Father, In Heaven, Where we Will Live Forever And Ever! ( 1 Thessalonians 3:13; Colossians 1:5, 22; 1 Corinthians 6:3; 2 Corinthians 5:1-2) Amen?

    MID-TOJT raptures:

    (2) During The Time {God's 'Context'} of JACOB's {ISRAEL's} Trouble, there Will Be TWO "raptures":

    a) one departure is of the TWO witnesses, killed, resurrected, and taken up ( Revelation 11:1-12)

    b) the other departure is of the 144,000 "sealed virgins of TWELVE tribes ( Revelation 7:1-8) redeemed from the earth," and were "without fault before The Throne of God!" ( Revelation 14:1-5)

    Please refrain from listening to those who "MIX these up" in confusion. And:

    Please Be RichlyEncouraged, Enlightened,Exhorted, and Edified In JESUS CHRIST!

    ( 2 Timothy 2:15; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 1:3-9; Ephesians 3:9 = Grace/Mystery fellowship, today?)

    I say the hard truth in all things. Jesus is not going to set up his kingdom here right away. The saved will be off of the earth for 1000 years, living in the New Jerusalem.
  • Artie whitefox - in Reply on Mark 1
    The saved will be off of the earth in the new Jerusalem for one thousand years. That is the reward that Jesus says will be with him. satan wanders this dark planet for 1000 years, with no one to work through. Satan is unchained when the wicked are raised. They make two cities Gog and Magog. Satan calls them to do one last battle against what seems to be a city that can be easily taken. God's light makes the lost to look like a lake of fire. Wicked become ashes under the feet of the righteous.

    Precious friend, Jesus Ortiz. Note: there are THREE future 'raptures.'

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

    2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 "falling away" = THE Great GRACE Departure "away from earth"

    (2) Revelation 11:1-12

    (3) Revelation 14:1-5

    Precious friend, Jesus Ortiz, Please Be RichlyEncouraged, Enlightened,Exhorted, and Edified! ( 2 Timothy 2:15; Romans 16:25; Ephesians 1:3-9; Ephesians 3:9 = Grace/Mystery fellowship, today?)

  • Sacha - in Reply on Mark 1
    I would say yes ,the act of having sex with another person is what seperates the marriage ,if your spouse cheats on you they have seperated themselves from you and broken the bonds of marriage ,under mosaic law you are basically divorced from each other by the act of cheating and your spouse and the person that they slept with are to be stoned to death ,as Christians we may choose to forgive and reconcile or divorce ,there was no place for forgiveness under the mosaic law .Thanks to God and Jesus we are not under that as Christians .

    Who is running your church ?

    Jesus or devils ?
  • OnlytruthintheworldKJV - in Reply on Mark 1
    Greetings in Jesus' name, Josephine.

    The Israelites kept their sabbath based on a lunar calendar. We can always see the sabbath and the new moon referenced together. The sabbath day was always the day after the new moon..and then every 7th day after that until the next new moon.

    So it is not a certain day of the week on the gregorian (named after pope gregory) calendar.

    For this month since the last new moon it has been on the day we call Saturday, which by no coincidence was also the day passover fell on.

    That said, the sabbath day is a holy convocation pointing to the 7th day 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ and His bride. This is the rest that remaineth spoken of in Hebrews. Christians do no enter into a day of the week. However, there is nothing wrong with observing the sabbath, and meeting with other Christians on the Lord's day (the day after); the first day of the week.

    I hope this blesses you.

    Be well, Andrew
    Jesus observed and worshiped on sabbath day as we have read from the bible ,Which is this day of sabbath ? dowe as followers of Chirst keep it?
  • Earl Bowman on Mark 1

    Mark 1:14-15 Now after John was put into prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the GOSPEL of the kingdom of God.

    (vs 15) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye and believe the GOSPEL.

    Repentance is not the GOSPEL.

    Psalms 52:1 Why BOASTEST thou thyself in mischief, O mighty man; the goodness of God endureth continually.

    Romans 2:4 Or despisest thou the riches of his GOODNESS and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the GOODNESS of GOD leads to repentance.

    Luke 17:21 Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, Lo there! behold, the kingdom of God is WITHIN you.


    Colossians 1:27 ..... which is CHRIST IN YOU, the hope of glory.

    You are baptised (not by physical water; but with living water) INTO CHRIST!

    The baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire Matthew 3:11

    Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

    Yes the bible help inspired my life in christ
  • Zac Brisbin on Mark 1
    Mark 1 is beautiful a description of Jesus came to be an example and it shows from the beginning of when John was to baptize Jesus. He demonstrate the new birth experience by being born of the water and spirit. Showing us this is just the start of the fight as he was soon then tempted by the Devil forty Days.

    Jesus's ministry was powerful because he told truth saying, Repent and believe the Gospel! As I was reading this Chapter I saw the power of the mere words of our God. Simon Andrew James and John only ned to hear follow me and they went. ll he need to do was speak to the demons and they went out. There was so much power just in the words that Jesus said. All things obeyed the Lord showing his power and might. I learned through this there is power in the words we say. IT can bring forth life and life more abundantly. There is much Power in the things we say seeing now those who are born again have been given the authority of Christ. Beautiful description of how JEsus started and moved his ministry by the Power of the tongue. ALL THINGS OBEY THE LORD
