  • Brianna for verse 11
    The deep things of God are not for everyone. Though Jehovah God is good towards all, he reserves special rights for those who love him whole souled. He reveals insight into the future events ahead of us to, those who would appreciate. It is as Jesus said, do not throw your pearls before swine.

    Remember, the disciples were already in the boat with Christ which should have been enough to secure their hearts on safety, the same applies to Christians who fear unnecessarily today however bleak the outlook at the time because satan is as a roaring lion ready and eager to pounce at any moment. The world 's tide will always be contrary to saints, hence the need for strong faith whatever attack the enemy levels at us. It is rarely noticed that there were other boats following them on that same rough sea who were without the assurance of Christ as an anchor to rely on. It is the same today for all Saints who are in the safe keeping of having The Saviour with them. What ever happened to those other boats only God knows, they had heard The Word and seen the miracles but how many were lost because they did not partake of the true Bread of life even when they had watched and even share in eating the miracle food from the hand of the Lord himself. Time is short, beware the satanicly inspire doubts from an already sentenced prince of darkness.

    About having faith and believe on God 's word as I read it, and when I hear it preached. You have to believe in it with your heart when it it received, study more of it, then tell others about it. It takes time to fully understand most of it as some of the word is in parables. There is no rushing with it, and if we do not understand it well enough, we might confuse others. Most people get choke when trials if these world present themselves. Also, we must guard the word, and receive it with our hearts, not just gladly in front of others, but must retain it deep in our hearts. Just like the mustard seed, sooner or later we will become fruitful. Every seed has a different time to bare fruit. Some seeds can be attack by satan, some do not get any attack at all. Thanking God for his word again.

    I believe there is nothing wrong with the seed the word . Besides, we first hear the word before receiving it. There after there word germinates and later becomes fruitful. At every point the hearer must do his due deligence in making sure the word is not troden upon, taken away or choked by the cares and passion of the world.
  • Kimba
    My Understanding of this chapter is once the true word of God is reveal in you, then Satan will immediately come in your mind to bring doubt and fear. As soon as Jesus taught this parable immediately the storm came to bring doubt and fear into the disciples. Satan will Always come Immediately just after we received the word and start to believe in our hearts. he Satan will choke the word twist the words in your mind to cause disbelief. It started in the garden with Eve and he is a master of this trick today.

    He is telling that if u dont have faith in what u know and hear them u have no faith in me and what i can do, that is why ilove it cause he letting them to have faith and watch him work it out for u but ur faith have to be strong enough.
  • Vincent Ewefa
    I think that what grieves Christ most is our sin of unbelief,fear and doubt.Mark 4 also tell me that exhibiting instant zeal for the Lord may not bea yard stick of appointing one to an office in the house of God as that zeal could be shot live.
  • Le\'Andre for verse 6
    My revelation of this verse is the stubbornness of people, they have not allowed themselves to be conformed. They seek to part of, but refuse to accept the spirit into their hearts. They say they are humble, but become heated with rage when they cannot convince those who are living the life that we are showed through the teachings of the spirit. People have not changed since then we have the faithful and the faithless. We are children of GOD through faith.
  • Jmike
    IMO. God provides everything, the point I feel is to rely on God through the storms, trials and tribulations we are aware we will be going through. We "blame " instead of rejoice in overcoming sickness and death. We become seeds that dont grow, or become rooted in problems, instead of knowing through faith and teaching that God is carrying us through this. This physical life is not the end, its "grade school ", and we are not ready to graduate..
  • Kasib A mumin
    I beleive everyone goes threw something,every how one may put it,we all go threw storms,but we must have hope, along with the faith we have in God to help us threw it all

    M 's Mark 4 commit. You are saying that we should give thanks to God for the storms by quoting 1 Thes. "in everything give thanks " So you are saying to me that I should give thanks for my cancer. God didn 't make me sick. Its a part of the curse. In everything I give thanks good or bad because the Joy of the Lord is my strength. I am not going to get depress and thank God for something he did not do. That 's what the Devil wants. I know my God is my Jehovah Ralpha my Healer. Storms are test trials that build character. When you are going through a storm who are you going to call upon. You can 't call on Jesus if you believe he sent the storm. No he delivers us from them if we call on His name.
  • Eaglesrock
    Whenever you are going through a storm, first thing is not to blame God. He doesn 't send them He delivers us from them. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers them from them all.He is going through the same storm you are. He does not abanden ship. All you have to do is call His name.
  • M
    when storms come into our lives we do not need to question GOD the only thing that we need to do is trust, run to HIM and not from HIM and thank HIM in the mist of the storm. 1 Thes.say give thanks for everything for this is the will of GOD concerning you.
  • Qunion barker for verse 22
    every thing is written in God word to his pepole .even the day,the watch the year of his return what take place even the last day,but you must tie meny subjects to gether to get your day that every one is looking for .i did!

    I am in a terrible storm right now. I have been through many storms, ie bipolar disorder, restless legs, high blood pressure, dialysis and kidney transplant. Now my arm is burning and drawing up that has the dialysis graft in it. My ears ring deafenly loud. My legs are heavy and I can hardly stand up. I am so dizzy I cannot hardly walk. I think I am near to death. Jesus is my Rock in the midst of the storm. He is my hiding place when I am afraid.
  • EVELYN
    I BELIEVE THAT THE PARABLE OF JESUS IS TALKING ABOUT THE SEED MEANING HIS WORDS THAT GOD HAD ALREADY PLANTED IN OUR LIVES. SOME PLANTED ON THE WAY SIDE, STONY GROUND, AMONG THORNS AND GOOD GROUND. WE ARE NOW OUR OWN FARMERS IN CONTROL OF PLOUDING THE SEED HOWEVER WE DESIRE FOR IT GROW. WE HAVE TO PRAY FOR THE RIGHT CHOICE TO BE MADE THROUGH OUR READING OF THE WORDS OF GOD EVERYDAY WHICH IS WATERING OUR SEED EVERYDAY, IN ORDER FOR OUR SEEDS TO GERMINATE.
  • Stephanie johnson
    We must be able to stand in the midst of our trials and situations. Mark 11 23 24 tells us that we can speak to those mountains whatever the situation and believe and don 't doubt in our heart and we shall have whatever we say. As long as we stay in the word we will have the strength we need to conquer our storms.
  • Judy Eads
    We serve a mighty God.His coming is getting closer.Just be ready ,stay ready
  • VeNessa Chambers for verse 6
    I believe that this portion of scripture is stating that if one does not have the word of God as a foundation in their heart then when circumstances or situations arise, their faith will then fail.
  • Anonymous for verse 19
    Distraction is one of the most powerful weapon the enemy Possessing worldly goods is fine however when worldly good posses you it s evil
  • I think it is sad when satan try to steal kill and destry but God is our shield he is the word and the truth no matter what satan try to do keep on keeping on with the Lord our god because no one cometh unto us but by the father
  • ART ADAMS JR.
    I LOVE MARK 4 29 WHEN IN A STORM ALL JESUS SAID WAS PEACE BE STILL AND IT WAS STILL SAME AS IN OUR LIVES IF YOU BELEIVE IN JESUS
  • Bruce Keisling for verse 28
    Very often , we lack patience mixed with expectation. The seed ( and the Word ) will always produce of it's own.
  • Clarence for verse 39
    He was showing us what authority we can exercise in life that is why He said oh Ye of little faith, and we should not fear the Devil we should rebuke him in The name of Jesus we have the authority when problems come in life rebuke them according to their names without doubt and fear, we are more than conquerors through Christ, there is power in the name of Jesus so lets exercise our authority given to us through Christ.
  • Ben Weaver for verse 26
    A few additional observations. Jesus taught these parables to people who were still outside,(v.11) and before the cross and Holy Spirit outpouring. Later, Paul says, we are translated into the kingdom, and coworkers with God.(Col.1:24)Although we cannot duplicate, or even understand the mystery of life and growth, Christians may be called to work with the word by prayer and faith in the name (as agents)of Jesus. This supernatural function in the spirit world is quite apart from our well-meant carnal systems of management. Our worldly programs and organizations (of church building) do not, in themselves have the spiritual life that only the word of God has. Lets be careful to plant, water, and harvest only His seed. The good seed of the gospel also prepares the soil, can stop Satan from stealing, and hinders carnal riches and cares from choking out the living seed. Jesus is that life-giving Spirit.(1 Cor. 15:45

    @ David...this has absolutely nothing to do with the Conservative policy. Christ is simply saying if you don't sow the seed of God then why do you need it. He will take the seed you have and are not sowing and give it to someone who will.
  • David
    v25 "For he that hath, to him shall be given: and he that hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he hath."

    Conservative Party policy?
  • Joycee
    Mark 4, spoken in parables helps us as the readers and followers to understand what Jesus has spoken to the people. Because he has taught us by using parables, I use parables with today's examples to my grandchildren.

    Mark 4, does explain how a person can hear the word, but lose it through worldly distractions. Whether it be verbal or indeed the physical. Yes those of us who are eager to intake the Word will digest it very well. We should all remember if we fall, we can and must get back up. Least we have should have learned.
  • YomilolA for verse 39
    He is the only one that can subdue any temptest situation in our life with His command "Peace be Still"
  • Juane
    This chapter was put in my spirit to remind the people that God did teach in parables because man cannot comprehend at a Godly level. I a m so glad he told the seed sowing story but backed with understanding and explaining to man how it is pertaining to man. Chapter 4:11-21 is self explainable. You must be born again to receive the word of God. Like the brother said, you become a new creature in Christ, if you receive Him in your heart. Without Him, the word means nothing at all. It is like another language. You are not an heir of the kingdom; therefore you will not understand the word. The best way to get the word as God gave it, is to pray for an understanding and open your heart to receive it. John 3:16 says it all! The "WORD" feeds your spirit and inner man.
