1 And He went out from thence, and came into His own country; and His disciples follow Him.
His disciples being even of the 7,000 Zadok who are ‘the armies which were in heaven’ that will follow Him upon His return at the 7th trumpet.
2 And when the sabbath day was come, He began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing Him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this Man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto Him, that even such mighty works are wrought by His hands?
In the futurist sense, Christ will give those delivered up during the 6th trumpet ‘a mouth and wisdom’ which all their adversaries ‘shall not be able to gainsay nor resist’ when they get delivered up ‘to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers’ for Christ’s name’s sake as you can see in Luke 21:12-19.
3 Is not This the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not His sisters here with us? And they were offended at Him.
This word translated ‘offended’ (which means to ‘stumble’) we also saw back in the parable of the sower in reference to when the 144,000 ‘fall’ at 666 (as you can also see in Daniel 11:35) not being grafted back into God’s family tree until after the Holy Spirit speaks through those of the Zadok.
4 But Jesus, said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house.
5 And He could there do no mighty work, save that He laid His hands upon a few sick folk, and healed them.
6 And He marvelled because of their unbelief. And He went round about the villages, teaching.
7 And He called unto Him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits;
Again, as you can see in Acts 2, the twelve (with Judas having been replaced with Matthias) are a type of those of the Zadok Christ will utilize to plant the seed of the seal of God during the grace period of the 5th trumpet.
As we know from Luke 10:19, Jesus gives us power “over all the power of the enemy” through His name whereby all a Christian has to do upon crossing paths with an unclean spirit is say “In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, go to the abyss.”
8 And commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, save a staff only; no scrip, no bread, no money in their purse:
9 But be shod with sandals; and not put on two coats.
We see in Matthew 10:9-10 Jesus commanding the twelve to “Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses, nor scrip for your journey, neither two coats, neither shoes, nor yet staves: for the workman is worthy of his meat.”
“Staves” plural as opposed to “a staff” in Mark 6:8 just as Jesus also said to “not put on two coats” and according to Bullinger’s note on Matthew 10:10 in the Companion Bible: ‘The Lord means they were not to beg‘ because this word translated as ‘scrip’ really means a begging bag.
Jesus then goes on to say (later in Matthew 10:19-20) “when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.”
Letting us know this ultimately looks forward to the sixth trumpet when the Holy Spirit will speak through the Zadok causing many out of the lion, the bear and the leopard (which correspond to the gold, silver and brass on the image of Daniel 2) to repent whereby they become part of God’s family tree as opposed to ‘the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.’
10 And He said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.
11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.
‘It shall be more tolerable’ because Lot and his two daughters were spared (when God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrha) but in the futurist sense, all who refuse to believe upon the TRUE Christ and remain citizens of Babylon (which means ‘confusion’) up until the seventh angel sounds (which is when ‘the day of judgement’ begins) will be given ‘the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath.’ as you can see in Revelation 16:19.
12 And they went out, and preached that men should repent.
As Christ says also to those within most of the seven churches of the Book of Revelation who, after the Holy Spirit speaks through the Zadok who are the church in Philadelphia, remain citizens of Babylon and continue to worship Satan: the king of Babylon of the end times.
13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
This ‘oil’ is the same as we are to use today in accordance with James 5:14 which we are to also use to anoint our homes against anything negative or evil.
‘Christ’ means ‘The Anointed One’ and what the Holy Spirit says through those who get delivered up during the woe of the 6th trumpet will cause many to repent, leaving the family tree of the Devil and returning to the many membered body of Christ Jesus which is God’s family tree all were part of in the first world age.
14 And king Herod heard of Him; (for His name was spread abroad:) and he said, That John the Baptist was risen from the dead, and therefore mighty works do shew forth themselves in him.
15 Others said, That it is Elias. And others said, That it is a prophet, or as one of the prophets.
16 But when Herod heard thereof, he said, It is John, whom I beheaded: he is risen from the dead.
Herod ‘the tetrarch’ (meaning ‘the ruler of a fourth part of a country’) who killed John the Baptist who came “in the spirit and power of Elijah” (as we know from Luke 1:17) being even a type of antichrist (as explained in the note on Mark 3:6) looking forward to when Satan kills the two witnesses who are most likely literally Moses and Elijah.
17 For Herod himself had sent forth and laid hold upon John, and bound him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife: for he had married her.
18 For John had said unto Herod, It is not lawful for thee to have thy brother’s wife.
19 Therefore Herodias had a quarrel against him, and would have killed him; but she could not:
And you could even see Herodias as looking forward to the Jezebel of Revelation 2:20 which is symbolic of the Kenites inasmuch as their influence leads to most Christians ceasing to be virgins at 666 and becoming the whore of Babylon.
As you can see in Revelation 11:10 ‘they that dwell upon the earth’ will ‘rejoice’ when Satan kills the two witnesses.
20 For 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.
This is where Herod is not a type of antichrist, just as we see several instances in the Book of Daniel where Nebuchadnezzar is also not a type of antichrist when we rightly divide the word of truth as we are instructed to in II Timothy 2:15.
21 And when a convenient day was come, that Herod on his birthday made a supper to his lords, high captains, and chief estates of Galilee;
22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.
24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.
Herodias and her daughter even being symbolic of the ‘strange’ woman and/or the ‘stranger’ written of in the Book of Proverbs and as you can see on page 871 of the Companion Bible, the words translated as ‘strange’ and ‘stranger’ can be either ‘zur’ which means an apostate (as in the whore of Babylon) or ‘nakar’ which means a foreigner, as in those foreign to Christianity especially the Jezebel of Revelation 2:20 which, again, is symbolic of the Kenites who are the natural branches of Satan’s family tree.
The Kenites (through their four hidden dynasties) are at this time allowed to plant the seed of the mark of the beast in the minds of most Christians who, at 666 in the ‘apostasia’, will become the ‘zur’ when they die spiritually and are grafted into Satan’s family tree.
25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.
26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath’s sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.
Again, rightly divide the word of truth to see when Herod is not a type of antichrist because (obviously) Satan will not be ‘exceeding sorry’ about anything, much less over the murder of the two witnesses.
You could even say John the Baptist is a type of both of the two witnesses inasmuch as he was from the same tribe Moses is from (the tribe of Levi) as well as being “in the spirit and power of Elijah” and in Mark 9 we will see both Moses and Elijah (literally) on the Mount of Transfiguration which you can also read of in Luke 9 as well as Matthew 17.
27 And immediately the king sent an executioner, and commanded his head to be brought: and he went and beheaded him in the prison,
28 And brought his head in a charger, and gave it to the damsel: and the damsel gave it to her mother.
29 And when his disciples heard of it, they came and took up his corpse, and laid it in a tomb.
But as far as the two witnesses are concerned, ‘they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.’ as you can see in Revelation 11:9.
After the ‘three days and an half’ the two witnesses (who are most likely Moses and Elijah) will be resurrected after which the seventh angel will sound and ‘the day of judgement’ will begin when the TRUE Christ returns as King of kings and Lord of lords.
30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
This is the first time in Mark we see them called apostles and in Acts 2, the Holy Spirit speaking through the apostles (with Judas having been replaced by Matthias) looks forward to when those of the Zadok get delivered up when what the Holy Spirit will say through them will bring the 144,000 (as well as whosoever will) out of the deception and back into the many membered body of the TRUE Christ whereby they can take part in the first resurrection and become part of the millennial priesthood at the 7th trumpet.
31 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.
32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
33 And the people saw them departing, and many knew him, and ran afoot thither out of all cities, and outwent them, and came together unto him.
34 And Jesus, when he came out, saw much people, and was moved with compassion toward them, because they were as sheep not having a shepherd: and he began to teach them many things.
35 And when the day was now far spent, His disciples came unto him, and said, This is a desert place, and now the time is far passed:
36 Send them away, that they may go into the country round about, and into the villages, and buy themselves bread: for they have nothing to eat.
37 He answered and said unto them, Give ye them to eat. And they say unto Him, Shall we go and buy two hundred pennyworth of bread, and give them to eat?
38 He saith unto them, How many loaves have ye? go and see. And when they knew, they say, Five, and two fishes.
These five loaves and two fishes are symbolic of the seven seals that make up the seal of God that will spring forth within the minds it was planted within during the grace period of the 5th trumpet.
We see here two fishes because before the TRUE Christ returns, (symbolized by the fish because of the acrostic acronym seen within the Greek word translated as ‘fish’ here in Mark 6:38) Satan will appear as the false christ at 666 which (as a numeral) is chi xi stigma which is #5516 in the Greek dictionary of the Strong’s Concordance.
39 And He commanded them to make all sit down by companies upon the green grass.
This word translated ‘green’ is just one number away in the Strong’s Concordance from 666 (as a numeral) and is translated as ‘pale’ in the 4th seal.
40 And they sat down in ranks, by hundreds, and by fifties.
41 And when He had taken the five loaves and the two fishes, He looked up to heaven, and blessed, and brake the loaves, and gave them to His disciples to set before them; and the two fishes divided He among them all.
42 And they did all eat, and were filled.
Looking forward ultimately to when the 144,000 (as well as whosoever will) repent during the latter half of the five month long ‘hour of temptation’ which is when they receive the seal of God in their foreheads because of what the Holy Spirit will say through those of the Zadok delivered up to ‘Death’ (as Satan is called in the 4th seal) during that time.
43 And they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments, and of the fishes.
This number ‘twelve’ here having the same meaning as we saw in the last chapter because of the twelve thousand out of each of the twelve tribes that had received the seed of the seal of God prior to the woe of the 5th trumpet.
These ‘fragments’ symbolize the deception that gets removed from the foreheads of those who repent and come out of the confusion (which is what Babylon means) being then grafted back into God’s family tree.
44 And they that did eat of the loaves were about five thousand men.
‘Five’ means grace as in the grace period the planting of the seed of the seal of God takes place in.
45 And straightway He constrained His disciples to get into the ship, and to go to the other side before unto Bethsaida, while He sent away the people.
46 And when He had sent them away, He departed into a mountain to pray.
47 And when even was come, the ship was in the midst of the sea, and He alone on the land.
48 And He saw them toiling in rowing; for the wind was contrary unto them: and about the fourth watch of the night He cometh unto them, walking upon the sea, and would have passed by them.
49 But when they saw Him walking upon the sea, they supposed it had been a spirit, and cried out:
50 For they all saw Him, and were troubled. And immediately He talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.
51 And He went up unto them into the ship; and the wind ceased: and they were sore amazed in themselves beyond measure, and wondered.
And, as we also saw back in Mark 4:35-41, ‘the wind’ is (in the futurist sense) symbolic of Satan’s deception being transmitted throughout the airwaves during 666 and what we see here in Mark 6:51 looks forward to when the seventh angel pours out his vial ‘into the air’ which is when the TRUE Christ returns and destroys Satan’s role of antichrist, at which time Satan himself will be cast into the bottomless pit having a ‘seal’ set upon him ‘that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled’ which means his deception will not be allowed during the millennium: only the teachings of the TRUE Christ through the millennial priesthood whereby whosoever will can wash their robes and make them white ‘in the blood of the Lamb’ (as you can see in Revelation 7:14) whereby they can stand against Satan after the thousand years are finished, take part in the second resurrection and go into the eternity which is the third world age.
52 For they considered not the miracle of the loaves: for their heart was hardened.
Historically, their heart would remain ‘hardened’ (in other words, their minds would remain blinded) until after the crucifixion and resurrection when Jesus ‘opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures’ as you can see in Luke 24:45.
53 And when they had passed over, they came into the land of Gennesaret, and drew to the shore.
54 And when they were come out of the ship, straightway they knew Him,
55 And ran through that whole region round about, and began to carry about in beds those that were sick, where they heard He was.
56 And whithersoever He entered, into villages, or cities, or country, they laid the sick in the streets, and besought Him that they might touch if it were but the border of His garment: and as many as touched Him were made whole.
