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,

Who is a blind leader?

And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way. And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in his words. And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Caesar, or not? Mark 12:12-14 KJV.
They came to Jesus saying flattering things about him, and all they wanted was to trap him.
When they came, they said; He was truthful and didn’t care what anyone thinks,He was not partial to any, he did not regard the person of men, but  that he taught the way of God truthfully, and then they asked, Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not? Although it’s true Jesus was truthful, that he taught the way of God truthfully and does not show partiality, but it’s not true that he doesn’t care what…

Called to be sons!

We’ve all been called to preach, to proclaim or tell the Good News of the Kingdom of God. He won’t change His mind about what He has called us to do, to go tell unbelievers that there is God. So let’s all obey God and answer the call to preach and  help people get saved.
We have to be faithful, obedient, and patient in order to fulfil God’s call. God may temporarily lead you to do something. That doesn’t mean the gift is gone or that the calling has disappeared, because the gifts and callings of God are without repentance. In other words, God doesn’t change His mind!
According to 1 Corinthians 12:27, you and I are the Body of Christ and members in particular. Each member has a role to play in the Body, and yourself my friend must know what God has called and gifted you to do.
You may not have heeded or discovered God’s call on your life in the past, but that call is still there my friend. The gifts and callings of God are without repentance! Make a decision today to stir up the gift with…

What defiles a man

What defiles a man?
CERTAINLY 
"Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man; but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man." Matthew 15:11
BUT
These are the things which defile a man;
"those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man..... evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies" Matthew 15:18-19.
Who is a blind leader?
Hear and understand;
Any who teach for doctrine the commandments of men is a blind leader, these are they who Jesus said, "in vain they do worship me" Matthew 15:9. 
What are commandments of men?
The commandments and doctrines of men are rudiments of this world, which aren’t spiritual put by men  to have you submit to their regulations, things such as saying; "Touch not; taste not; handle not; Which all are to perish with the using" Colossians 2:21-22. These things have a reputation for wisdom but promote only self-made religion, …
