Think on these things

One person alone is usually a straightforward and friendly individual as warm and softly lighted as a candle. In a crowd, that same person frequently loses that glow and takes on a metallic brightness that resembles an artifical light.

WHO DO YOU SAY THAT I AM? WHO DO YOU SAY GOD IS!! GOD IS ASKING YOU TO KNOW HIM AS BEST AS YOU/I/WE CAN KNOW HIM!!! GOD WILL DO WHATEVER HE NEEDS TO DO TO GET YOUR/ OUR/MY ATTETION!!! HE’S BEEN REACHING OUT TO US FROM THE VERY BEGINNING AND ALL THE TIME WE’RE IN THIS WORLD “HE” CREATED!!! LOOK HOW HE GOT MOSES’ ATTENTION!! Exodus 3:1-6 1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. 2And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed. 3And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. 4And when the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said, Here am I. 5And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 6Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God. GOD’S SON, JESUS CHRIST, WANTS YOU TO KNOW HIS FATHER AND HIM!! LOOK HOW HE GOT HIS DISCIPLES’ ATTENTION!! John 14:8-15 8Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? 10Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. 12Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. 15If ye love me, keep my commandments. DEAR LORD, WHATEVER IT TAKES FOR US TO KNOW YOU, YOUR WILL BE DONE!!

THE END IS NOT YET!!! ONLY THE FATHER KNOWS!!! Matthew 24:3-8 3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8All these are the beginning of sorrows. Mark 13:3-8 3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately, 4Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? 5And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: 6For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows. Matthew 24:36 36But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Mark 13:32 32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE LORD!!! TRUST HIM IN ALL THINGS!!!
