  • Bible Question on Mark 10:44
    "Saved through fire" (purging fire=purgatorial fire) wherein our works are burned up=purgatory, thanks.
  • Chris - in Reply on Mark 10:44
    1 Corinthians 3:15: "If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire."

    There is no inference to a 'purgatory' here. Purgatory as understood from the Roman Catholic teaching is: ""purification, so as to achieve the holiness necessary to enter the joy of heaven". When a departed soul is 'not quite there yet' to make it to Heaven, because of some sin(s) preventing him, he needs to be in a place (a purgatory) of further thought & purification (a purging of sins) prior to his release. This is NOT in Scripture, it is RC teaching. And it's this type of teaching, even amongst non-RCs, that give a false impression that there will be a second chance at attaining Heaven & eternal life.

    The verse you cite, speaks of a believer already in Heaven ("in that day" standing before God) when the revealing fire of God will try "every man's work, of what sort it is". We are saved by faith in the finished Work of Christ on the Cross, but what we have done in our faith & with our faith will come under Divine Scrutiny.

    Some will finish their course well, having saving faith plus a life that has been a blessing to many & works done for the extension of God's Kingdom (i.e. works of value: gold, silver or precious stones). Others, will "still be saved, yet so as by fire" (i.e. he has done little or nothing by his faith = wood, hay or stubble, which are easily burned), but on the merits of his faith & Christ's Work for Him, he will get to Heaven "by the skin of his teeth", so to speak. See 1 Peter 4:18: "And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?" Let's not be content to "just getting into Heaven", but to live the Christian life & doing the things, that gives us an "abundant entrance".

    So, yes, our 'dead works' will be burned up, but not in purgatory (which doesn't exist), but burned because it has not added to the community of believers, to the world without hope, or to God's Kingdom.
  • Blaspheming the Holy Spirit on Mark 10:44
    Mark Chapter 3

    26 And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end.

    27 No man can enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he will first bind the strong man; and then he will spoil his house.

    28 Verily I say unto you, All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men, and blasphemies wherewith soever they shall blaspheme:

    29 But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost hath never forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal damnation:
  • Levi William Stanow on Mark 10:44
    I love learning god's word
  • HANNA on Mark 10:18
    In the book of Isiah God said I am God and beside me the is no other. In hebrews c 1 vs 2 He said in the last days He will speak to the people through His Son by whom He made the Worlds. In John chp 3 vs 16 for God so loved the world that He gave HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON that who so ever believed in Him should have everlasting life. IF THERE IS NO SON THERE IS NO SACRIFICE. In Rev chp 4 vs 9 - 11 the four beast and the 24 elders praise GOD and say Thou art worthy ,O Lord to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things and for Thy pleasure they are and were created. WHY IS IT SO HARD TO GIVE GOD CREDIT FOR HIS MIGHTY WORKS?
  • The Third Eye on Mark 10:9
    Here's that 3rd Eye scripture. Just because you put a red dot on your face doesn't mean it's from God.

    Ask someone who was rescued out of the occult! What goes around comes back around: that's karma. Occult!

    Read your Bible as is. That's your revelation. Every time you read the book of Revelation, you get a blessing from God.

    Deuteronomy 18:10-12

    There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices DIVINATION tells fortunes or interprets omens, or a sorcerer or a charmer or a medium or a necromancer or one who inquires of the dead, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord. And because of these abominations the Lord your God is driving them out before you.

    People be aware. There will be many false Christ's, false prophets, people who say they have a new revelation. God hates that stuff.

    If you would ask the Holy Spirit to TEACH you the'd wake up raring to hit the Bible hard every day! Can't no one Teach like the Holy Spirit can.

    If you want to learn the deep things of God, then be willing to log in many many hours studying with the Holy Spirit! He WANTS to teach you. THEN, He wants you to teach it to others. No interpretation is just for private.

    Ask the Holy Spirit about that 3rd eye thing and then sit before him, stilled, until He replies.

    If Satan can't get us on heroin, he'll find all kinds of newfangled theories to waste time pondering on. Look up that scripture in the search box: "Your adversary the Devil..."

  • Steve Lynch on Mark 10:9
    It is ok for a person to remary because adultry is not a unforgivable sin. you both repent of any sin and jesus will forgive you. otherwise it would be like saying that christ can't forgive sin. and there's only one unforgivable sin an that is to blasheme against the holy spirit.
  • Chris - in Reply on Mark 10:9
    Steve, you are right that all sin can be forgiven except for blasphemy against the Holy Spirit, for which the Jewish leaders were particularly guilty of. We can ask the Lord for forgiveness of sins & then find peace in our hearts from that wrong & restored fellowship with the Lord.

    However, with the sin of adultery, or other sins such as murder, rape, etc., one then has to live with that decision for the rest of his life. And with adultery, no forgiveness can ever take away from the reality of the daily hurt & shame that is brought about by this act. If as a believer, one wilfully sins (a premeditated act) expecting that God's forgiveness as the cure all, then how are we different to anyone else who might believe that sinning is of no consequence as God always forgives, or even as some RCs who go weekly into the confessional to receive absolution?

    When a believer falls into sin, it amounts to a 'slip up' because of our weakness in the flesh, where maybe a lie is spoken to get out of trouble, or a nasty word or burst of anger in response to a situation, or even that sexual thought of someone else. We realize our sin & seek forgiveness. How does that then work out when there is a planned execution of sin, knowing that that is not what God allows? Does God still forgive this? And if He does, will He still continue to forgive many times over? Or for that matter, can we really regard our righteous standing before God through His salvation as real? These would be some of the questions that I would be compelled to consider if planning to commit sin. I'm not in any way suggesting this of you, but a personal view of wilful sin & doing despite to His work of Salvation & giving of His Spirit.
  • Margie on Mark 10:9
    The Bible says of one comments adultery, ot ok with God to divorce. Does that mean it's ok for the non-adulterer to remarry?
  • Patricia Stover on Mark 10:30
    In Mark chapter 10 verse 31 mentions Father but why does it not mention Father in verse 30?
  • Jesse - in Reply on Mark 10:30
    Patricia, did you mean John 10:30-31?

    In John 10:30, Jesus says, "I and my Father are one."

    Verse 31 does not use the word Father because the Jews took up stones to stone Jesus for saying I and my Father are one.

    The Jews understood the phrase "I and my Father are one" as Jesus claiming to be equal to God Himself. That's why they took up stones.

    But did you notice that Jesus didn't deny it? He never said "Wait a minute guys, before you stone me, I think you might have misunderstood me." The Jews knew exactly what Jesus meant!
  • Bibi russell on Mark 10:9
    someone living common-in-law and 2 children from the relationship and has not actually made marriage vows is it still considered what God has joined together.? Now is the woman free to leave her partner and go with another man? Is the new man breaking up what God put together?
  • Hank - in Reply on Mark 10
    Yes, the first man the woman and the new man, all three of them will be guilty of breaking the law of God.

    Mark 10:8-9 KJV

    And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. [9] What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

    Every binding in marriage is from God. To break what God has merged indeed is going against God's will. The first combination has children indicates that they had become "one flesh" in the eyes of God even though they were not given to marriage. As a result breaking the unity that led to bear children is sinning against God. Saying we were not engaged/not legally married is not an excuse.

    Also the new man Leviticus 21:7
  • Mishael - in Reply on Mark 10:9
    If you live in the USA, you can google your State's laws on it. Some states recognize it;

    Others do not. It can't be treated as divorce until someone moves out of the house.

    Since God created the first marriage with Adam and Eve, we have to observe His requirements to put away a "spouse".

    1 Corinthians 7-9; Genesis 38:8;

    Deu. 24:2-5, Hebrews 13:4; Jeremiah 3:14

    My comment here, is if God can say 'I'm married to you'..then marriage (a covenant) between two parties is serious and binding. If you bend the rules because society says you can doesn't mean it's the best choice.

    I say that because of how it hurts children to live the impermanence of life without one parent. I overheard one day a group of children call themselves, "divorced" kids. Five of them said, I'm divorced, and 1 kid said my parents are married. The 5 told him he was lucky.

    Talk it over with your Pastor or the Pastors wife.

  • Obbie Beal on Mark 10
    As it relates to marriage, 1-12 above JESUS give good clarity about what JEHOVAH /GOD has written in stone, nevertheless in 2020 mankind still put away unlawfully. Thank GOD for JESUS thereby forgiveness of this sin through JESUS can be obtain. 13-31 again JESUS mind is on SALVATION for us, 33-34 JESUS mind is on the work HE must finish, thereby finishing or establishing THE WAY for us that leads to ETERNAL LIFE /SALVATION, see John 3:16-21.
  • Gennie Gennie Gennie on Mark 10
    Jesus loves me! To follow him I must take up my cross . Bring the children to Jesus that he may bless them take your kids to church. Man I got to love their wives. Because there are one in Christ.
  • Sophia white on Mark 10
    We must not think to ourselves how our lives shall be for God has us in his hand so we must follow him and trust him even in hard times
  • Anne on Mark 10
    "How hard it is for them that TRUST in riches to enter the Kingdom of God". Are we willing to give up all that we have and TRUST in God? It may not seem easy, but with God it is possible. All things were made by Him and He owns everything. Think about it.
  • Ruben Hartness - in Reply on Mark 10
    You are so right Anne.-Matthew 19:24 reflects that.
  • Vanisha ward - in Reply on Mark 10
    Gods understanding is beyond the human mental capacities of this world. The longer God allows us to live, the more opportunity is provided to listen to him and guide us through is spirit. God has designed the world in granular perfection. God reveals himself to those who seek in the spirit. We cannot move on own terms to spread the power of God. We must do so with his approved guidance.
  • Patty Tozi on Mark 10
    Ask for forgiveness every morning and night for any sin you could of committed. Praise His Holy Name!!! Walk with His Strength wherever you go. Be prepared to face any situation by going to Him first-- not the enemy's way of this world. Thank Him after for staying close. Think about the Blessings He had bestowed on you. Keep going after the impossible of this world-- for they are made possible!!!

    2 things about the blind man: First he cast away his garment knowing he could find it again because he knew Jesus would cure his blindness. And second: Jesus didn't tell him not to publish it, like he told others that he healed before. For now it didn't matter because his time had come.
  • Stanjett on Mark 10
    50 And he, casting away his garment, rose, and came to Jesus. 51 And Jesus answered and said unto him, What wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight. 52 And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.
  • Alexander Lennox on Mark 10
    The fact that Jesus is God and that he came not to be ministered unto but to minister to those of his creation shows me that he is here teaching his people a lesson by example. But his ministry goes far beyond anything that we could aspire to He gave his life as a Ransom for his people life

  • Obbie Beal on Mark 10
    34 And they shall mock him, and shall scourge him, and shall spit upon him, and shall kill him: and the third day he shall rise again. (Jesus understood / knew the power of GOD, even to the degree that HE says after they kill HIM /Jesus, He will rise again, and HE did raise himself from the dead which paid the ransom for the human race or HE conquer death for the human race.)
  • BSP on Mark 10
    Verse 8~A husband and wife are to be so close that they are described as one flesh. This was Jehovah God's original purpose for marriage.
