Mark Chapter 14 Daily Simple Bible Study

 

Watch the VIDEO here...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Well she did waste a lot of money, didn't she?

So here in Mark Chapter 14 we have this woman bringing this perfume that's worth was like $40,000 nowadays? She opens it and she pours all of it on Jesus! Geez I know my cologne bottles cost like $40 not $40,000 and I use it like a little splash for my neck and alittle splash for my wrist lol. Last me maybe 6 months? Let's check out the scripture...

Mark Chapter 14

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone.

1Now the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread were only two days away, and the chief priests and the teachers of the law were scheming to arrest Jesus secretly and kill him.

2"But not during the festival," they said, "or the people may riot."

3While he was in Bethany, reclining at the table in the home of Simon the Leper, a woman came with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, made of pure nard. She broke the jar and poured the perfume on his head.

4Some of those present were saying indignantly to one another, "Why this waste of perfume?

5It could have been sold for more than a year's wages and the money given to the poor." And they rebuked her harshly.

6"Leave her alone," said Jesus. "Why are you bothering her? She has done a beautiful thing to me.  7The poor you will always have with you, and you can help them any time you want. But you will not always have me.

8She did what she could. She poured perfume on my body beforehand to prepare for my burial.  9 Truly I tell you, wherever the gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her."

10Then Judas Iscariot, one of the Twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Jesus to them. 11They were delighted to hear this and promised to give him money. So he watched for an opportunity to hand him over.

I get 2 things from this sticky situation in Bethany

Ok the first thing is there is a lot going on here is relationship. I don't want to just simplify what's going on here but this is not an in-depth study :)  so dig and research on your own as always...

I see that the woman here has a seemingly close relationship to Jesus. The reason I gather this is because the reason she does this is that She KNOWS what's about to happen to Jesus. SHE HAS BEEN LISTENING TO Him, paying attention... The disciples and other people don't understand that Jesus is about to die!

Mark Chapter 14

In Relationship we find Value and remembrance...

So out of the first thing I saw which was Relationship out of which, comes the second. The second is Value. For one she placed great value on doing this deed for Jesus.

More than just a lot of money, this money was thought of being perhaps her only chance at being Married some day. So she is placing caring for Jesus in this difficult time for Him as a huge value.

No one else is even aware that Jesus is knowingly about to die, He is soon to be gone... Those closest in relationship with Him know and share in His pain and sorrow.

This woman gives up not only her "now" money, but her future is also "wasted" at the feet of Jesus, where her relationship with Him began...

Mark chapter 14

This is one of my favorite pictures....

We see the value Jesus places on relationship and caring for people

From this place of placing tremendous value on Jesus, we now see Jesus turning right around and HIGHLIGHTING this one act, or was it just this one act that He is wanting everyone to pay attention to?

I believe He was pointing to the fact that because this woman made habit of sitting at Jesus' feet that is why she knew what was on His heart, and that's how she knew how to act at the right moment and time.

This I believe is the MOST CRUCIAL lesson because of how Jesus bookmarks it for eternity here. You got all these Pastors, Missionaries, Teachers of the Sunday School, Worship Leaders, Greeters, and anyone else who was "Important" in the same room completely oblivious as of what was going on...

Looking again at Mark Chapter 14 [praying] God help me to be the woman, to make a habit of laying at your feet , and worshipping you when no one else is paying attention...

Mark Chapter 14

Please always  leave a quick comment...

Let me know your favorite verse of the day or go ahead and leave a huge dissertation on your own insights in the chapters of the day. We can all learn from each other and have great discussions in the comments.

The comments are also an excellent place to ask questions and I will answer them as best I can personally! Why do you think everyone was upset? Was it really the money? Why do you think Jesus made such a big deal out of this act from this woman? Comment below...

Mark Chapter 3 Daily Simple Bible Study Demonic Encounter one Dead

Mark Chapter 3 Daily Simple Bible Study

Watch this VIDEO first here...

 

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Are demons real, should we have people falling at our feet?

Ok so here in Mark we have these demons or evil spirits and verse 11 they fall down before Jesus and cry out. So I don't see this very often do you? I have some interesting experiences when it comes to these demonic encounters though. First here's some demonic scripture  references...

Mark Chapter 3 verse 11 and Mark 5:1-20

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone.

Mark Chapter 3 first...

10For he had healed many, so that those with diseases were pushing forward to touch him.

11Whenever the impure spirits saw him, they fell down before him and cried out, "You are the Son of God."

And now Mark 5:1-20

1They went across the lake to the region of the Gerasenes.2When Jesus got out of the boat, a man with an impure spirit came from the tombs to meet him.

3This man lived in the tombs, and no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain. 4For he had often been chained hand and foot, but he tore the chains apart and broke the irons on his feet. No one was strong enough to subdue him.

5Night and day among the tombs and in the hills he would cry out and cut himself with stones.6When he saw Jesus from a distance, he ran and fell on his knees in front of him.

7He shouted at the top of his voice, "What do you want with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? In God's name don't torture me!" 8For Jesus had said to him, "Come out of this man, you impure spirit!"

9Then Jesus asked him, "What is your name?"

"My name is Legion," he replied, "for we are many." 10And he begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.

11A large herd of pigs was feeding on the nearby hillside. 12The demons begged Jesus, "Send us among the pigs; allow us to go into them."

13He gave them permission, and the impure spirits came out and went into the pigs. The herd, about two thousand in number, rushed down the steep bank into the lake and were drowned.

Now that's a crazy demonic encounter right?!!!!!!!

Ok so maybe we don't see that everyday but what do we see? I have had encounters but I haven't had any for say 1 year? And before that maybe 2 years before that? So are we just not paying attention or are we not mindful of the spirit realm? What do you think? Ok here is a video I made describing one of these encounters I had check it out...

Watch VIDEO Part 1 here...

Watch VIDEO Part 2 here...

Are demonic encounters real are there evil spirits?

Ok so in the above videos I talked about that encounter and it was one of the first I ever experienced and well it was real to me!!!!!!! I forget if I mentioned it in the video but the girl that ran off ended up killing herself a couple days later. It was sad and I felt horrible not being able to help or not knowing how.

Another time I was working with a guy at a construction job and he was new to the company. I was driving the work truck, he jumps in and we are driving to the next job or something and all of a sudden out of the blue in the middle of our conversation this dudes voice drops very very deep.

His eyes changed very dark, and he said, "I am not supposed to talk to you anymore" oh shit! That startled me lol. I wasn't expecting that at work not even having like a spiritual conversation, I wasn't praying for him at the time it was just every day kinda stuff...

Looking at Mark Chapter 3:11 and 5:1-20 [praying] God open my eyes to pay attention, and be aware of the influences all around. Teach me more about this demonic encounter stuff...

Mark Chapter 3

Matthew Chapter 21 Daily Simple Bible Study Justin Bieber, Michael Jackson, President Obama, and Jesus?

by madgeniusbiz | on April 7, 2013

Matthew Chapter 21

 Check this VIDEO out first here...

Jesus Bieber what does Justin have to do with it?

Justin Bieber coming to town or Michael Jackson, or even the President Mr. Obama would maybe be the best visual on what's going on here in Matthew Chapter 21.

Have you ever had the crowd cheering you on and then a week later hammering nails into your hand lol? Read it below and let's talk about what we can take away from this scripture...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture.

I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Matthew Chapter 21

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone. Take a look at the first part of Chapter 21 of Matthew.

Jesus Comes to Jerusalem as King

1As they approached Jerusalem and came to Bethphage on the Mount of Olives, Jesus sent two disciples,

2saying to them, "Go to the village ahead of you, and at once you will find a donkey tied there, with her colt by her. Untie them and bring them to me.  3If anyone says anything to you, say that the Lord needs them, and he will send them right away."

6The disciples went and did as Jesus had instructed them. 7They brought the donkey and the colt and placed their cloaks on them for Jesus to sit on.

8A very large crowd spread their cloaks on the road, while others cut branches from the trees and spread them on the road. 9The crowds that went ahead of him and those that followed shouted,

"Hosanna to the Son of David!"

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!"#

Psalm 118:25,26

"Hosanna in the highest heaven!"

10When Jesus entered Jerusalem, the whole city was stirred and asked, "Who is this?"

11The crowds answered, "This is Jesus, the prophet from Nazareth in Galilee."

Making the right decisions when your crowd will crucify you...

Here's Jesus at the peak of popularity right? He has been loving on people, healing them, and His crowd of influence is now a parade! Just like artist, or politicians make the rounds or go on tour, sometimes for years before they gain a following... Jesus did the same for 3.5 years. He started out alone in the wilderness and now He has the crowd!

Matthew Chapter 21

Sometimes when you get the crowd is when a choice or a decision comes your way that you have to make where you will upset your entire following!

There are times when your crowd doesn't really know what you are all about yet. This decision that Jesus had to make was to give Himself up and be crucified.

That was not what the crowd wanted! Just the opposite. It's commonly believed that the crowd wanted Him to become their King and set Israel back as a sovereign and powerful nation! Yet Jesus was on the path towards having His crowd KILL Him!!!!!!!!!!!

Matthew Chapter 21

Recently I had to make one of these choices, I had to basically walk away from all but 1 friend and not that I turned my back on my other friends, no but by making the right decision for me, I knew that my "Crowd" would not understand and it would be soooo wrong in their eyes.

Even to the point of disowning me and if they still hung people up like they did back then i'm sure some of my crowd would kill me. That's crazy to think about... Wow! I just thought about it here live lol, would I be able to have made the same choice facing death?!!!!!!!!!

Looking at Matthew 21 again [praying] God help me to not be swayed by my "crowd" but to listen to you and be lead by you... Talk to my heart about this today oh God.

Matthew Chapter 21

Mary and a few others remain from the Crowd at the Cross

We see that when the crowds fall away, there are sometimes only 1-3 people left that maybe don't even understand the choice that sent the crowds running but they at least are there to support you and offer you love and comfort while you hang on your cross beaten and crucified by your once loving crowd....

Please always  leave a quick comment...

Let me know your favorite verse of the day or go ahead and leave a huge dissertation on your own insights in the chapters of the day. We can all learn from each other and have great discussions in the comments.

Matthew Chapter 11 Daily Simple Bible Study John the Baptist questions if Jesus really is the Messiah

by madgeniusbiz | on April 6, 2013

Matthew Chapter 11

 

 Watch this VIDEO here first...

Is Jesus the One or Not? John is not sure?!!!!!!!

Ok so did you catch that too? John the Baptist was the guy who like publicly indorses Jesus. He practically yells to everyone, "Jesus is the Lamb of God, who will take away the sins of the World!". And now in Matthew Chapter 11 verse 3 he questions if Jesus is the One or not?!!!!!!!!!! Read it below...

If you are new here you will quickly learn that this blog is not for the in-depth bible studier. I do not get into the greek or Hebrew this or that. On a rare occasion I will but typically this is a place for a Quick Touch or Glance at Scripture. I will ask thought provoking questions and maybe bring up very controversial ideas. I love to ask questions and I'm always learning so your comments and ideas are needed.

Matthew Chapter 11

This is straight from Youversion.com it's probably the easiest and best online bible for simple study. They also have a great App for your phone. Take a look at the first part of Chapter 11 of Matthew.

1After Jesus had finished instructing his twelve disciples, he went on from there to teach and preach in the towns of Galilee.#

Greek in their towns

2When John, who was in prison, heard about the deeds of the Messiah, he sent his disciples 3to ask him, "Are you the one who is to come, or should we expect someone else?"

4Jesus replied, "Go back and report to John what you hear and see:  5The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy#

{#dedup}The Greek word traditionally translated leprosy was used for various diseases affecting the skin.{/dedup}

are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor.  6Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me."

Jesus not what people expected even John

Matthew Chapters 11 what stuck out to me was that John is asking if Jesus is the Messiah. Yet we see John proclaiming that Jesus most definitely was not too long before this. John knew that Jesus was the Messiah, but something bugged him, something kept John up at night making him wonder and question.

Jesus did not look or act anything like John. In Matthew Chapter 1:18 we get our clue I believe...

YouVersion

18  For John came neither eating nor drinking, and they say, ‘He has a demon.'  19  The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.' But wisdom is proved right by her deeds."

Matthew Chapters 11

So we got John here lol who fasted all the time who never drank any alcohol. John the Baptist was a Nazirite... He was hardcore fanatical Jew. He was straight laced, nobody would think to question John the Baptist devotion to all things Hebrew or Jewish law.

Matthew Chapter 11

Then we got Jesus comes into town and the party starts!!!!!! Lol. Jesus first miracle is making some fine ass wine that everyone was raving about for years! He was thought of as a drunk.... He hung out with woman and not just woman... THOSE kind of girls :)  Do you ever judge things that aren't like you or that don't look like you too harshly? Hmmm

I'm asking myself in Matthew Chapters 11-20 [praying] God what have I looked at or seen incorrectly just because it's different than me...talk to me about this today God.

Matthew Chapter 11

DWBPublishing God is Great

They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice.
Romans 1:29

We live in a world that has forgotten God. The latest bestselling books set out to discredit God. References to God are disappearing from many public institutions, and liberal activists want to remove His name from the Pledge of Allegiance.

God's people should be shouting from the rooftops, "God is great!" The absence of any kind of rebuttal is the result of the insidious work of Satan. Satan wants to destroy all communication between God and man, and we help him every time we do not speak up.

Forget what is 'politically correct' and praise God. Some may ridicule you for praising His name, but His Word will stand forever, long after the present fads have passed from this earth. Praise God constantly. Help to repair the breach between God and man.

The old hymn says it all: "I'll praise my maker while I've breath; and when my voice is lost in death, praise shall employ my nobler powers. My days of praise shall ne'er be past..." Praise Him today.

DWBPublishing Nearly Half of Young Women Live With Boyfriend Prior to Marriage

Nearly half of women ages 15 to 44 say their "first union" was cohabitation rather than marriage, according to a new survey by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, USA Today reports. As a first union, 48 percent of women moved in with their male partner, up markedly from 43 percent in 2002 and 34 percent in 1995. Just 23 percent of first unions were marriages, down from 30 percent in 2002 and 39 percent in 1995. "Instead of marriage, people are moving into cohabitation as a first union," said demographer Casey Copen, the report's lead author. "It's kind of a ubiquitous phenomenon now." Experts say the numbers show living together is increasingly being used as a "testing ground" for marriage. Within three years of cohabiting, 40 percent of women had transitioned to marriage, 32 percent remained living together and 27 percent had broken up. The median duration of first cohabitation is 22 months, up from 20 months in 2002 and 13 months in 1995. The report also found that 19 percent of women became pregnant and gave birth in the first year of a first premarital cohabitation.


DWBPublishing You would think an organization that is supposed to be dedicated to protecting our constitution would have more to do, like protecting our 2nd amendment, than suing a school over a picture of Jesus hanging on a wall amongst other "great" people.

Ohio School Takes Down Jesus Portrait Under Legal Threat

A portrait of Jesus that had adorned a southern Ohio public school district building since 1947 has been taken down after officials decided they could not risk losing a lawsuit to the American Civil Liberties Union, Fox News reports. The portrait had been in the middle school entranceway's "Hall of Honor" along with other portraits of famous local residents and alumni, and had recently been moved to the high school building. Phil Howard, superintendent of Jackson City Schools, said the decision was made after the district's insurance company declined to cover litigation expenses, and a student club that owns the portrait took it down Wednesday morning at Howard's direction. "At the end of the day, we just couldn't roll the dice with taxpayer money," Howard said. "When you get into these kinds of legal battles, you're not talking about money you can raise with bake sales and car washes. It's not fair to take those resources from our kids' education." The ACLU and the Freedom From Religion Foundation had sued on behalf a student and two parents, calling the portrait an unconstitutional promotion of religion in a public school. An ACLU spokesman says the lawsuit remains in effect, but will be dropped if the portrait stays down.

DWBPublishing 13 Attorneys General Push Obama on Contraception Mandate

Thirteen state attorneys general are urging the federal government to broaden religious exemptions for private businesses under the White House's contraception mandate, claiming the policy violates religious freedoms. Put simply, the group -- the attorneys general of Alabama, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia -- believes any employer who says he or she objects to contraception should not have to provide contraceptive coverage. The Department of Health and Human Services' latest proposal, unveiled Feb. 1, would require all employers to provide contraceptive coverage to workers; some nonprofit religious organizations -- primarily houses of worship -- that object to contraception on religious or moral grounds would be exempt. In a March 26 letter, the coalition asserted that the exclusion should be extended beyond religious institutions to include all conscientious objectors. At least two dozen suits by private businesses have been filed against the contraception mandate, and 16 have been granted a temporary injunction while the lawsuits are pending, according to the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is spearheading much of the opposition to the mandate. In addition, 30 lawsuits by nonprofit religious groups have been filed against the mandate, although most have been rejected as premature because fines for noncompliance don't kick in until 2014.


DWBPublishing Poll: 55 Percent of Blacks Say Gay Rights Not the Same as Civil Rights

A new poll commissioned by Black Entertainment Television (BET) founder Bob Johnson and conducted by Zogby shows that 55 percent of African-American adults do not agree with the LGBT community's claim that gay rights are the same as civil rights, CNSNews.com reports. In contrast, 28 percent said no when asked if equal rights for gays were the same as equal rights for African-Americans. "There weren't any real surprises," Johnson said when asked what findings surprised him the most. "On the issue of gay rights, African-Americans are far more conservative on that issue than I think the general population, so that wasn't a surprise." However, respondents were basically split on the issue of gay marriage. When asked, "Do you believe marriage should be restricted to between a man and a woman or do you believe that persons of the same sex should be allowed to marry and receive similar benefits as heterosexual couples?" 42 percent said marriage said should be between a man and a woman while 40 percent said same-sex couples should be allowed to marry with benefits. Respondents were also asked, "Do you believe ministers who oppose homosexuality, including the rights of gays and lesbians to marry, are right, wrong or no opinion?" Thirty-five percent had no opinion, but 34 percent said ministers were right to oppose homosexuality and gay marriage, and 31 percent said ministers were wrong.
