THE AUTHORITY OF JESUS,Marks Gospel, Chapter 1,Part 5,

THE AUTHORITY OF JESUS

Author Guardian

Marks Gospel chapter 1:21 - 33, Part 5,

God we come the your Throne In Jesus name and we bow to you,

for you alone have all power and authority and dominion, we come to

you the KinLordg and we lay our lifes before you and give this time to

you now in Jesus name amen.

If you can have a pen and paper ready.

We continue by looking at Marks Gospel chapter 1:21 - 33

Thats Marks Gospel 1:21-33

Jesus teaches with authority.

Here we see Jesus teaching with authority, you see in this day and age

there were many who would say " Come Follow Me "

There were many with false teachings or teachings that led people

astray, Paul warned of this many times as did Jesus.

These teachers who claimed to know the truth and yet came to nothing.

At this time here in marks gospel we also have many who were well

versed in scripture, as we saw in the last message, children went

to learn the scripture from an early age.

We all know about the pharisees, where jewish law and tradition was

obeyed to the upmost, Then we have the sadduces who believed in the

first 5 books of the bible and did not believe in the resurrection

of the dead, ( pharisees fare ( they believed in the resurrection of the

dead.) ...sadducees sad ) they did not.

The sadducees also profited from business in the temple.

And there were many other groups or parties including supporters of

King Herod and the zealots and the essenes again they practiced ritual

purity and personal holiness.

And then comes Jesus...the living word...Jesus did not just speak

words, He lived the words He spoke because He was the Living Word.

He taught quite a different teaching but also demonstrated what He

taught by His actions and here in Marks gospel we see a God /Jesus

of action.

This is the Kingdom of God come down as John the Baptist cried out,

in the wilderness.." The Kingdom of God is near "

You see there were so many people and always have been who know the

scripture well, even satan himself knows the scriptures well.

But in this day and age I believe we have quite a different thing,

where some have never picked up a bible or read even a page, but

nonetheless believe in a god or God

In this day and age I believe materialism is one of the gods of modern

times and you see it is'nt the god we worship but the spirit behind

the god we worship.

But back to Marks Gospel.

Here we have the parties and groups of people, always arguing and

debating and squabling, (almost like political parties) always going

around in never ending circles and scolars, scribes, these

knowledgable men always debating and listening to the latest teachings

and ideas.

Theorising and answering questions with questions.

Does this remind you of anyone ?

Theology is great but unless you put your theology into practice it

is nothing more than words.

People here always debated by answering questions with questions and time

and time again you would see Jesus doing exactly the same thing.

And as we go on through Marks Gospel you will see Jesus answering

questions with questions, because this was the way things were done.

So here we see Jesus the great teacher, our Rabbi, Rabboni.

And in verse 21 He goes into the synagogue on the sabbath and begins

to teach.

Now have you got your pieces of paper and pen ?

You see God is love and God /Jesus has all power and authority.

You see love is God and love/Jesus has all power and authority.

So I ask this question ?

What is power ?

What power and authority have we got as Christians ?

And how do we use this power and authority ?

For God sent His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him

should not perish but have eternal life.

This is the love of God, demonstrated to us.

I believe love /power and authority go together.

so if you have your pen and paper I want you to draw a ladder

with about 7 rungs so two lines up and seven accross.

Now ask yourself this question

1

In regards to the social ladder and in regards to your social

status and place in society....

where do you think other people would put you on that ladder ?

Put a no 1 or a tick on the rung where you think people would

see you

2.

Now how do you think people see you ? where when they look at

you do you think other people would put you on that ladder as

a person ? this time its regarding you as a person and your

status. put a tick or a number on a rung.

3.

Next where would you put yourself on that ladder ?

this is looking at you as a whole...where would you put yourself

on that ladder ?

4.

How much authority do you have ?

as a person ? put yourself as you see yourself and as as others

see you on the ladder.

5.

Now how does God see you ?

Where do you think God would put you on that ladder ?

Now lets discuss this because there may be a difference between

where you put yourself and where God puts you.

Again we come back to the valleys being raised up and the mountains

being lowered.

Lets discuss.

Back to Marks Gospel chapter 1 verse 21...

Jesus/Rabboni went to the synagogue and taught with great authority

and people were amazed.


1They went to Capernaum, and when the Sabbath came, Jesus went into
the synagogue and began to teach. 22The people were amazed at his
teaching, because he taught them as one who had authority, not as the
teachers of the law. 23Just then a man in their synagogue who was
possessed by an evil spirit cried out, 24"What do you want with
us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you
are the Holy One of God!"

25"Be quiet!" said Jesus sternly. "Come out of him!" 26The evil
spirit shook the man violently and came out of him with a shriek.

27The people were all so amazed that they asked each other, "What is
this? A new teaching and with authority! He even gives orders to evil
spirits and they obey him." 28News about him spread quickly over the
whole region of Galilee.





(God is love and perfect love drives out all fear.)

The evil spirit or spirits knew who He was of course and Jesus

demonstrates His authority here ..

Note it says " what do you want with us "

Then it changes to say, " I know who you are "

Also note it says, ""What is

this? A new teaching and with authority! "

wow another new teaching !!!

In verse 32 it reads,


32That evening after sunset the people brought to Jesus all the sick
and demon-possessed. 33The whole town gathered at the door, 34and
Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many
demons, but he would not let the demons speak because they knew who
he was.





The day of rest lasted from sunset friday to sunset saturday,

and it was against the law to be healed on the sabbath and to travel

on the sabbath so we see here that after sunset once the word had

spread through galilee the people came and crowds gathered around Jesus.

And so we come back to the ladder and your sketch.......

Where does Jesus see you on that ladder ?

What authority have you got ?

Have you got any examples in your life where you have seen the power

over the enemy demonstrated ?

Have you been delivered ? set free ? loosed ?

Anyone ?


Luke 9:1, 2 says, Then he called his twelve disciples together, and
gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.


And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel
to every creature. ... And these signs shall follow them that believe;
In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new
tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly
thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and
they shall recover. Mark 16:15, 17, 18.





In other words ......" Come Follow Me....do as I do "

A Kingdom of power and authority.....not just of words.

Remember that as we walk in the Kingdom of God under His Kingship,

we are given authority.

Lord God In Jesus powerful name we come to you..under your Kingship

and we thankyou that your perfect love casts out all fear, you look

at us and you see Jesus, you see the blood...and the enemy trembles,

thankyou Lord In Jesus name amen
