<-- Back to Mark chapter 7

Verses 7-15...the age old rivalry between "Commandment and Convenience". It is inconvenient, therefore, we "let it slide". Of course, the question is...Don't that suit God? Does letting it slide please God? Do we do things after God's way, or in a way we hope, we pray, we think, is God's way, for sake of convenience.

Verses 20-23~ Jesus showed that these wicked things that take place come out of a person's bad heart condition. We must be careful that we do not take in bad things through what we read, watch, and what we listen to.

What come out of a man Is what defines or defiles Him. This is why we need Jesus in our heart that he will rule our through and by the Holy Ghost, Amen.

MARK 7:7 HOWBEIT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME TEACHING FOR DOCTRINES THE COMMANDMENTS OF MEN ****** MARK 7:9 AND --- HE --- SAID UNTO THEM FULL WELL YOU REJECT THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD THAT YOU MAY KEEP YOUR OWN TRADITION ****** LUKE 6:46 AND WHY CALL YOU ME LORD LORD AND DO NOT THE THINGS WHICH I SAY ****** PHILIPPIANS 2:21 FOR ALL SEEK THEIR OWN NOT THE THINGS WHICH ARE JESUS CHRISTS

The Bible says that ALL scripture is inspired of God. (2 Timothy 3:16) To say that an emperor wrote Matthew 28:19,20 is saying that 2 Timothy 3:16 is a lie. We know that Jesus and his disciples practiced and taught evangelizing.Remember the words at 2 Peter 1:20,21. Interpretation comes from God.

I love God he is my hero

We need to make sure that we examine some of the traditions we hold dear and make sure we know why we are following them and not just because everyone is doing it.

Jesus way saying that many were just paying lip service to him. They didn't really have a clean heart in their worship.

 


Melissa Martinez's comment on 7/21/2016, 2:31pm...

I think it is saying in verse 6 chapter 7 from the book of MARK that men can speak or say anything. But God knows all things and he knew that they didn't feel those ways in their hearts.as to go into verse 7 Jesus is saying how can it be that they worship him in vain, they are speaking of doctrines ,the commandments of men. They were ignoring the commandment of God and speaking their own belief.

he also said he is the end to the law

 


JP's comment on 3/31/2016, 2:21pm...

I think you're wrong. Read Acts chapters 10 and 15.

 


Outrider's comment on 3/31/2016, 5:44am...

Mark 7:14...23 has been used for eons to justify eating anything the Christian wants to. These passages DO NOT determine what the definition of what meat food is, this can only be found in Leviticus. Our LORD God YHWH defined for us what is meat food and what is an abomination to us. The Lord does not change and Jesus told us that he did not come to destroy the law but to fulfill it, and he kept God's law perfectly. So now re-read these passages and apply the definition of food per Leviticus to them and you will find, this is saying nothing at all about what you can eat. Food has been defined long before in Leviticus. Please read and compare what I have said, let the Holy Spirit guide your thoughts, and remember why follow man's commandments when you have a set of perfect commandments from God!

 


Ronald Schlager's comment on 2/20/2016, 12:52pm...

What does it matter, as to what you or I think about anything spoken of in the Bible? Since the Bible is the Word of God, only what God says, actually matters. How can our mortal opinion carry any weight with God? Even the Bible (Gods word) is not just His opinion, but rather it is established fact! We can only understand the truth of Scripture, when God gives it to us, as progressive revelation

 


Eaglesrock's comment on 9/23/2015, 6:07pm...

34 And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. Second Time in scripture that Jesus spoke in tongues. "That is" means being interpet.

TO HUMBLE OURSELVES BEFORE GOD AS THE GREEK WOMAN DID. AND BELIEVE IN GOD

 


BOBBY ANDERSON's comment about verse 9 on 6/22/2015, 3:46am...

Paul keep the commandments so why would say they not necessary?

 


Bozki's comment on 3/16/2015, 9:49pm...

Tradition is one of the Pattern of this World, Paul Understand this that is why he said Do not conformed to the Pattern of this world but be Transform by the Renewing of your mind. Renewing means return back to the original mind setting, which is from the beginning We only listen and do what God Says.....It is high time for us now not to listen what others told about you, just only listen what God tells you...God Bless everyone.....

The scribes and Pharisees found fault with Christ and his despises that right there is vary telling not all people did not even the man possessed with legion for they were many. Christ said they taught for doctrine the commandments of men my opinion they were in the church for money and position they were self righteous and could not see with there harts the loving savior there hart was blind he was trying to point this out The people who hummbled there harts before Christ he heals and forgives I 'm so glad

VERSE 6,7,8 ABOUT WORSHIP HERE JESUS TELLS THAT PEOPLE WILL WORSHIP GOD PHYSICALLY AND THEIR MIND WILL BE THINKING OF SOMETHING ELSE.IF YOU WORSHIP 'GOD THE ALMIGHTY ' CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH THEN YOU SHOULD DO THAT USING YOUR PHYSICAL BODY AND YOUR FULL MIND.THAT IS THE REASON WHY JESUS HAS TAUGHT US TO SHED ALL YOUR WORLDLY DESIRES SO THAT YOU COULD WORSHIP YOUR CREATOR FULLY.IF YOU HAVE ANY DESIRES OF THIS WORLD THEN YOUR MIND WILL BE THERE.WHILE PRAYING WHAT EVER YOU ASK 'GOD ' HE WILL GIVE YOU.ONCE YOU GET WHAT YOU DESIRE THEN YOU TEND TO FORGET 'GOD THE ALMIGHTY '

 


THOMAS.V.JOSE's comment on 10/12/2014, 6:56am...

VERSE 15,16 IT IS SAID THAT WHAT EVER COMES FROM A MAN ONLY CAN MAKE HIM UNCLEAN. THAT MEANS IT IS YOUR TAUGHT AND DEEDS THAT MAKE YOU UNCLEAN. IT IS CLEAR THAT YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR TAUGHT NEITHER GOD NOR SATAN HAS ANY ROLE IN WHAT YOU THINK AND DO.YOU ARE THE CREATOR OF YOUR TAUGHT .GOD HAS GIVEN FULL FREEDOM TO YOU TO THINK AND ACT.HERE JESUS IS ALSO NOT FORCING OR COMPELLING ANYONE TO FOLLOW HIM. UNLIKE ANY OTHER RELIGION JESUS IS SAYING IF YOU NEED ETERNAL LIFE YOU SHOULD BE CLEAN IN YOUR TAUGHT AND DEEDS . JUST BY OFFERING PRAYERS AND SACRIFICE YOU WILL NOT SEE THE KINGDOM OF GOD.

Why did he always tell them not to tell when I think he knew they would?

 


J. Kane's comment about verse 16 on 1/14/2014, 8:16am...

This phrase Christ spoke is to be comprehended on multiple levels, or the phrase has more than one way of being understood. Thus being prima facie and beyond.

And thou all people (should) have ears, very few people use them to hear the many happenings taking place all around them and things spoken in their midst, even things spoken to them directly. This is not due to physical defect, but is a learned technique of filtering out sound and word at the earliest possible point in the hearing process.This technique is not taught but is learned through interaction from early childhood on. The specific rule set for what sounds and spoken word to be filtered are unique to each person, but commonly result in a process of only giving further thought to sounds or spoken word that communicate immediate danger or immediate threat, or pertain to your immediate activity in mind or at hand and discarding everything else.

Another interpretation of "any man that have ears to hear, let him hear" has nothing to do with actually hearing sound or word at all. Nor does it imply the intake of information generally, by whatever means from whatever source. The phrase is a command being given to they who hold great truths and they who teach higher knowledge, and of the ancient mystery schools. The command is to convey the great truths and/or higher knowledge and that of the mystery schools to any man wanting of this knowledge and the cognitive ability to understand it. And thou this comprehension of the phrase does not fit within the context of Mark chapter 7, it follows Jesus revealing of a great truth about what truly defiles a man, and the placement of the phrase is the indication of it's multiple understandings. This to include understanding the phrase in the context of the story, and out of context, or to be clear, the phrase comprehended as a single freestanding statement, which in this case is more of a command.

Whether the command has been followed for the most part? I do not know, but can only testify that I have never been barred from knowledge or truth within my grasp and desire, but what of the knowledge we do not know (or unaware of) that we should know? You need faith for that.
