Now all these things
happened unto them for ensamples:
In the Gospels "FOR" Us?
and they are written for
our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
I Corinthians 10:11
whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning,
we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
Remember, the Gospels are still in the Old Testament
We see that Mark is just more continuation of the sources of most
false teachings today.
Gospels are not TO us!
However, there is plenty within the Gospels FOR us!
John the Baptist
The issue for those days!
1:3 & Malachi
1:3 - The
voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make his paths straight.
3:1 - Behold,
I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the
Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger
of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD
Water / Holy Ghost
I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the
Remission of sins
- John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance
for the remission of sins.
Acts 2:38 -
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in
the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive
the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Details of JB and Jesus' baptism - Mark
1:9-11 & John 1:19-34
This is not an example TO us today -
but many leaders falsely use these as proof verses.
John the Baptists death
Astonished at his doctrine!
Mark 1:11 -
there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom
I am well pleased.
John 1:34 -
I saw, and bare record that this is the Son of God.
And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the
Our issue today?
13:10 - King James Bible is the inspired, preserved and perfect
word of God?
Unclean spirits and devils
the Book of Mark.
1:22 - And
they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had
authority, and not as the scribes.
King James Bible today!
Miracles and healings
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried
when the unclean spirit had torn him, and cried with a loud voice, he came
out of him.
And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves,
saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authority
commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before him, and cried,
saying, Thou art the Son of God.
Because they said, He hath an unclean spirit.
Mark 5:2: And
when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the
tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
Mark 5:8: For
he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.
And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out,
and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place
into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two
and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
For a certain woman, whose young daughter had an unclean spirit, heard
of him, and came and fell at his feet:
at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased,
and them that were possessed with devils.
And he healed many that were sick of divers diseases, and cast out many
devils; and suffered not the devils to speak, because they knew him.
he preached in their synagogues throughout all Galilee, and cast out devils.
And to have power to heal sicknesses, and to cast out devils:
And the scribes which came down from Jerusalem said, He hath Beelzebub,
and by the prince of the devils casteth he out devils.
all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may
enter into them.
they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and
And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in
thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth
when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first
to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.
And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast
out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
We are cut away from flesh today
Compare to Colossians
2:11-16 - spiritual circumcision
god of this world can mess & possess
our flesh - subtle, obvious, entertain, feed, etc.
but not our soul and spirit
Sons of Thunder
faith was needed
the scribes reasoning
in their hearts
anger / grieved
they wanted to destroy Him
Jesus called James and John, Boanerges, "sons of thunder."
Possibly a reference to their bold and
zealous personality - illustrated by a later incident in which they wanted
to "command fire to come down from heaven"
to destroy the people of a Samaritan village who had refused to allow Jesus
and His apostles to pass through on their way to Jerusalem (Luke
Possibly the name
for all the apostles?
Jesus had a
the Holy Spirit.
Today, all sin
can be forgiven and washed away by the blood of Christ!
Prophet is not
without honour, but... in his own house...
6:4-6 - But
Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country,
and among his own kin, and in his own house. And he could there do no mighty
work, save that he laid his hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
And he marvelled because of their unbelief. And he went round about the
