    Mark 1:34; 1 Peter 4:3-5



    Mark 1:34

    KJV(i) 34 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. 
    CAB(i) 34 And He healed many who were ill with various diseases, and He cast out many demons; and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they knew Him.

    These are my thoughts.

     

    Jesus can heal us, not only from our sickness but from our sins.

    1 Peter 4:3-5

    King James Version (KJV)

    3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries:

    4 Wherein they think it strange that ye run not with them to the same excess of riot, speaking evil of you:

    5 Who shall give account to him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

    1 Peter 4:3-5

    21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

    3 For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revelings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries;

    4 wherein they think it strange that you run not with them to the same dissolute excess, speaking evil of you,

    5 who shall give account to Him that is ready to judge the quick and the dead.

    These are my thoughts, please share yours.

     

     

     

    3 Before we came to Christ we lived to please ourselves and serve our own desires and wants but we should no longer live this way but now live to please Him and live to meet what He desires of us. There are many sins that e have committed before coming to the Lord. Christ can forgive us of all our sins but we should no longer live for our sins but live for Him.

     

     

     

    4 The world will not understand why we no longer live as they do and they will grow to hate us because they do not want to change as we did. They hated Christ before us and then hated the disciples we should expect if e are doing right for the world to hate us as well. We should show Christ thru our lives as the disciples did before us and this is what they will hate most. No one is hated by the world as Christians are.

     

     

     

    5 They will answer for what they do if they do not come to the saving grace of Christ as we did. Those without Jesus will be judged by Jesus who they rejected and wish that they had listened to us instead of mocking us. Jesus is gracious but is also just, those without receiving Him as their Lord will face His wrath.

     

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 1:33; 1 Peter 4:1-2



    Mark 1:33

    KJV(i)33 And all the city was gathered together at the door.
    CAB(i)33 And the whole city was gathered together at the door.

    My thoughts.
    We need to come together with Christ.

    1 Peter 4:1-2

    King James Version (KJV)


     
    4 Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;
     
    2 That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

    1 Peter 4:1-2

    21st Century King James Version (KJ21)


     
    4 For inasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind, for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin,
     
    2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

    1 Christ suffered, we will suffer as well. Christ gave His life for us so we should be willing to give our life back to Him because He paid for it with His life. Our suffering will not be in vain just as His was not in vain but for salvation. Our sufferings are a result of sin and the fallen condition of man for this reason Christ suffered as well.

    2 Our lives as believers are for Him because He gave His life so we can follow His will. We are not to live for any other reason than to fulfill His will in our lives by following Him. There was a time we sought after the flesh but not we seek after God. We are no longer to live in the same way we did before we came to Christ but live by Him in a new way, a Godly way.

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 1:32; 1 Peter 3:21-22



    Mark 1:32
    KJV(i)32 And at even, when the sun did set, they brought unto him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.
    CAB(i)32 Now when evening came, when the sun set, they were bringing to Him all those who were ill, and those being demon-possessed.

    My thoughts.
    Only by the power that comes from Him can our demons be removed and we can see the Son.

    1 Peter 3:21-22

    King James Version (KJV)


     
    21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
     
    22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.


    1 Peter 3:21-22

    21st Century King James Version (KJ21)


     
    21 The like figure to this, even baptism, doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ,
     
    22 who has gone into Heaven and is at the right hand of God, angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto Him.

    21 Baptism symbolizes the death of Christ; it symbolizes us dying to self and being raised in Him. Baptism shows we are living not for ourselves but now living for Him. The water of the baptism does not wash away our sins because only Jesus can wash away sins. Baptism shows to people that we have had are sins washed away by Jesus.

    22 Jesus is in heaven and has power and is in control. Jesus sees our struggles and difficulties and sees we do. Jesus is now in charge of things that He gave up to die for us. Jesus reigns from the heavens as Lord and will one day reign on the earth as Lord as well.

    Keep our eyes on Jesus.

    Mark 1:31; 1 Peter 3:19-20



    Mark 1:31
    KJV(i)31 And he came and took her by the hand, and lifted her up; and immediately the fever left her, and she ministered unto them.
    CAB(i)31 So He came and He raised her up, grasping her hand; and immediately the fever left her. And she began to serve them.


    My thoughts.
    Jesus can heal and heals us of our sins so we can serve Him.

    King James Version (KJV)


     
    19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
     
    20 Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.


    1 Peter 3:19-20
    21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

    19 by which also He went and preached unto the spirits in prison,
    20 who one time were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah while the ark was being prepared, wherein few, (that is, eight souls) were saved by water.

    19 It is commonly understood that this verse is referring to Jesus going to the grave and preaching to those who died before He came the saints of old. It is also understood that it could have been all who died before Christ came. We are bond in a prison of sin before He comes and sets us free. The grave is viewed as a prison. Sin is also viewed as prison.
    We can be made free from both thru Christ, not being bound to sin and passing from this life to the life with Him.

    20 No one lived right before they came to faith with the exception of Jesus who never sinned and Adam and Eve who sinned after causing the fall from perfection and grace. God is patience but there comes a time God will punish sin that is not under the blood. Christ came to die and if we receive Him our sins are covered by His blood and are forgiven because He died on the cross as punishment for our sins. There were only 8 who lived thru the flood. Noah and his family survived because they had faith in the Lord who carried them thru the flood, Christ carries us thru our sins to the cross we forgiveness and new life is found.

    Made perfect by the blood.
