Daily Manna - Mark Chapter One Thoughts

While reading this chapter today a few things jumped out to me and I thought I would pass them on to you.

Preparation and New Beginnings

Mark 1:1-5 The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
2 As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send My messenger before Thy face, which shall prepare thy way before Thee.
3 The voice of One crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make His paths straight.
4 John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins.
5 And there went out unto him all the land of Judea, and they of Jerusalem, and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan, confessing their sins. 

We are interested in the mysteries spoken of in the Word of God. They are the truths and Kingdom concepts hidden in the Scriptures. The Greek word for "mystery" is mysterion; it means "a thing hidden, a religious secret, or that which is not obvious to the understanding." It occurs 22 times in the King James Bible. We will not look at every passage of Scripture where it is found, but we will examine enough to sharpen our desires for the Word of God.

God's Word is not laid bare for just anyone. His Word is for those who are hungering after Him, and it is the hunger for Him that will begin uncovering the veil over the Word of God.

We will begin with a portion of Scripture in John chapter seven. Here we will see Jesus at the Feast of Tabernacles in the midst of a multitude, yet hidden. As such, He is an example of a mystery.

BOOKS from OHM - Preparation for a Higher Realm
A Hebrew servant had to serve his master for six years. In the seventh he could go out free. But if the servant said, "I love you, master, and I want to continue serving you," then the master took the servant to the front door, put his ear against the doorpost and with an awl pierced his lobe. Now he is no longer just a servant, but the servant has access to the house and part of the master's family.

You can serve the Lord out of duty, like the servant did, or you can go beyond that into a love relationship with the Master.
