Mark 6:14-29 John the Baptist was in prison. Herod Antipas, feeling 10 feet tall and bullet proof, made a decision in the heat of the moment. People followed him regardless. Who are you following? Are you 10 feet tall and bullet proof? Siding with the world to grab all you can? Are you trying to stand alone while making emotional decisions? or are you a worshipper of the King of Kings with a mind that thinks properly? Matt 11, Isaiah 35 Jesus was NOT going to save John the Baptist.

Mark 1-6 the summons and the training, Mark 6:7-13 the trial run, Luke 22 Be ready, Acts 1:8 you're on your own. A transition in Jesus ministry. Jesus is about to hand the reigns to "The 12". He's been modeling his expectations for about 2 years and now its time to give the 12 a trial run. Are they ready? If you believe you are already "sent out ones"; Are you ready to do what God has called you to do?

Mark 6:1-6 The danger of unbelief. Jesus claims to be the Son of God. Or is he an illegitimate child? Mark shows what happens when familiarity and unbelief with Jesus Christ Wins. It also shows what the people of the day REALLY thought about Jesus. Where do you stand? Are you a true believer? or are you a prisoner of Unbelief?

Mark 5 - Able to break chains...unsubdued by human strength… the demon possessed man ruled the country side. Men could not handle him and they feared him. And then Jesus showed up. The Legion identified itself and by order of Christ 6,000 demons, ran in fear and submission to the power of Jesus; into pigs, down a hill, into the Sea of Galilee and were drowned. What obstacle are you facing? What's holding you back from success? Give it to Jesus. Even your biggest roadblock, even the gates of Hell, crumble and bow to the authority of Jesus Christ.

Why do so many wait until they hit rock bottom to search for Jesus? The progression of life without Jesus only leads to death. The world will believe anything but the Bible and try any remedy before trying Christ. Know someone like this? Here's your message Mark 5:21-43

We all have storms in life. Even the disciples faced a hurricane. They did everything humanly possible to brave the storm, when all options were exhausted, they remembered; Jesus was in the boat. Jesus stood and shouted Siopa Pephimoso (Be quiet and stay quite) the wind and waves responded and there was a megale (mega calm) Mark 4:35-41

Mark 4. Parable of the Sower/soils Part 3. Thorny and Good soil. Which one are you? Will the desires of this world choke out your desire for Christ or will you produce 30, 60, or 100 fold?
April 29, 2018
Mark 4, Parable of the Soils (part 2). There is no problem with the sower or the seed, the issue lies in the heart of the soils (The Hearers). Do you have ears to Hear? There is a difference.
April 22, 2018
Jesus begins to speak in parables. What many don't know is that He is now drawing a line between "who can and can't hear" (Psalm 78:2, Matthew 13:35). For some its already too late. Mark 4 is about Evangelism; spreading Gods word and how it will be received. The emphasis is on the hearer not the sower. part 1 of 3.
April 21, 2018 - Easter
Mark 3:20-35 Is Jesus a liar, a lunatic, or Lord? I mean after all his family thought he was crazy. The religious leaders thought he was possessed. Do you believe them? Will you commit the unforgivable sin?

Easter 2018 - Inspired by my conversation with WW@ Veteran Tom Morris - Easter - God Loves you!
March 30, 2018 - Good Friday
Jesus was not a Wimp...Good Friday - Inspired by "12 Ordinary Men" and " Jesus was an Airborne Ranger" we have Jesus is not a wimp. Good Friday Jesus was crucified in perfect obedience to his fathers will and in his STRENGTH. Crucified by the Religious out of Envy.

Mark 3:13-19 As the crowds pressed in and many wanted him dead, Jesus went about his business choosing the 12 and preaching the Gospel. Sons of Thunder
March 17, 2018
Crushing crowds and riotous mobs seek out Jesus. Perhaps thousands are pressing in to touch him. To know him? More than likely to get something from him. For a time Jesus was a rock star but they did not recognize him as Lord and Savior.

Mark 2:18-21 - Mark 2:23-28 Rules and regulations not of Biblical origin can be problematic for followers of Jesus Christ. The Sabbath was created for man. Its to be a day of rest. The Pharisees had made the Sabbath a day to enforce rules. Jesus came to free mankind. He is Lord of the Sabbath.
February 17, 2018
Mark 2:18-21 - Wineskins and Old Cloth - The Judaism was broken. Jesus talks about fasting, the bridegroom and shows how the gospel is not compatible with the traditions of men.
February 11, 2018
Mark 2:13-17. The call of Levi (Matthew). He left everything to follow Jesus. Jesus shows the world he has the ability to give value and purpose to the worthless and the outcast.
February 4, 2018
Man has a big problem and it is called sin. Because of sin, man has a one way ticket to his appointment with the wrath of God. Who has the authority to forgive sin? Jesus. If he didn't have authority over sin, he would merely be teacher or healer BUT because he does he is called Savior.

Mark 1 Jesus begins his ministry in the Synagogue. His first order of business is to show the world that he has authority over satan and his demons.
January 21, 2018
We should be praying, above all things, for the ability to lead others to Jesus.
January 14, 2018
The world wants you on drugs. The devil wants you distracted. Jesus wants to disrupt your life and lead you to a more perfect destiny.

Jesus used 12 ordinary men to establish his world wide church. No religious people, no priests, no famous, or powerful people. And all he asked these men to do was get the job done and die for the gospel. If he could use ordinary men to successfully start his church, imagine what he could do with you.
