"Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to Nations of rebels, who have rebelled against me. They and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. The descendants also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them, and you shall say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.' And whether they hear or refuse to hear, for they are a rebellious house, they will know. And you, son of man, be not afraid of them. Be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks. And you shall speak My words to them, whether they hear or refuse to hear, for they are a rebellious house, a stiff-necked people."

Then the disciples came and said to Him, “Why do you speak to them in parables?” And He answered them, “To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. . Indeed, in their case the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled that says:

‘You will indeed hear but never understand,
and you will indeed see but never perceive.
For this people's heart has grown dull,
and with their ears they can barely hear,
and their eyes they have closed,
lest they should see with their eyes
and hear with their ears
and understand with their heart
and turn, and I would heal them.’ 

But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear."

"As it is written,
“What no eye has seen, nor ear heard,
nor the heart of man imagined,
what God has prepared for those who love him”—
these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And I impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual." "Faith...not by sight."
My words do not come with eloquence and wisdom of men, nor with accurate grammar and proper sentence structure. My speech and my message are not composed of clever and persuasive arguments, doctrines and theologies, but a demonstration of the Spirit, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power. Thus let your faith not rest in the wisdom of men, but in the power of the Almighty God.

But who has believed our report?

"We know that “all of us possess knowledge.” This “knowledge” puffs up, but love builds up.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command." 

The Kingdom of God is at hand, it is near, right at the door, it is upon us. Repent and believe. Render your heart this time and not your garments. Come out and come on to the Lord. He calls you to come.  

"Behold! I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me."

"He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still."
"He that endures to the end will be saved, she who stands firm to the end will be saved."                            "By standing firm you will gain life"

"Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end."

 "Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood."

 "The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life."

But who has believed our report?
Who can bear to receive this message?
And to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

Let God be true and every man a liar! Amen!
Let our boast be only in the Lord Jesus! Amen!

He who testifies to these things says, "Surely I am coming soon." Amen. 
Come, Lord Jesus!
 The grace of the Lord Jesus be with all. Amen.
