Jesus sends out the Twelve Disciples

And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits, Mark 6:7.

For the first time the disciples were commissioned to go out on their own and preach, "that men should repent," Mark 6:12, the same message He himself Jesus, was preaching, a message of repentance. If there is one thing you need do is to look for a true understanding of God’s wishes for you, that you should seek after, not to unreasonably follow traditions and doctrines of men.

As they went he instructed them to take nothing for the journey except a staff - no bread, no traveling bag, no money in their belts, but to wear sandals and not put on an extra coat. And he said to them, "Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you leave that place. If any place does not welcome you or listen to you, when you leave there, shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them." Mark 6:11.  

So he sent them to preach, he gave them authority over unclean spirits and to cast them out, he instructed what they’d take and how they’d behave themselves. If you’re a minister of Christ people want to gladly hear you despite their reservations. "Herod feared John, knowing that he was a just man and an holy, and OBSERVED HIM; and when he heard him, he did many things, and HEARD HIM GLADLY" Mark 6:18-20.

So under authority, the disciples went out preaching, casting out demons and anointing many sick people with oil, and healed them, and afterwards "the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught," Mark 6:30.

So the apostles regrouped, and reported to him all things that they had done and taught,

"And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat. And they departed into a desert place by ship privately." Mark 6:31-32. So they went away in the boat by themselves to a remote place.

God is a rewarder; when you do well He says, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: because thou hast been faithful in a very little, have thou authority over ten cities.

God bless,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

The Great Flood

May the LORD say to you, " Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation, " Genesis 7:1. Yes, may it become true of you that you are righteous, right standing before Him in this generation. If it’s the case, The LORD will shut you in, He will spread his royal pavilion over you. David says, " For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock, " Psalm 27:5.  My friend, you need the Lord like never before, to hide you when all living things around you are destroyed by this great flood, this pandemic of our time. But like Noah, remain alive in the ark my friend. Similar Posts  Let there be light The history of creation Life in God’s garden Trees are good Where is your brother?

The sons of God saw the daughters of men

God created man, both male and female he created them; he first formed man, Adam, " of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being, " Genesis 2:7. Secondly, the LORD God said, " It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him, " Genesis 2:18. The LORD then caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, " and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man, " Genesis 2:21-23. I hear Paul say, " For man is not from woman, but woman from man, " 1 Corinthians 11:8. And Moses says man are sons of God, and women are daughters of men. Eve when she conceived and bore Cain, she said, " I have acquired a
