Have You Seen Jesus, Today?
By:Joyce C. Lock
And they say ...
You act like you think you're God!
If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken. John 10:35
And they were astonished at his doctrine: for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes. Mark 1:22
Yea, and why should we believe you?
For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. Isaiah 53:2
If you would get things right, God would heal you.
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:4
Well, that's your opinion.
Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. John 7:16
When your own church and family doesn't receive you, do you honestly think anyone else will?
And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. Matthew 13:57
So, why would God speak to you?
For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. John 3:34
And, just where is your proof?
For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Romans 8:14-17
The disciple is not above his master: but
every one that is perfect shall be as his master.
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God's elect? It is God that justifieth. Romans 8:29-33
See that ye refuse not him that speaketh.
For if they escaped not who refused him that
spake on earth, much more shall not we escape,
if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven.
He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me ...
