    Being looking for a video like this for ages, because this is what we need to do if we really desire to know Christ.



    Joh 2:6 And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece.
    Joh 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim.

    How can any man learn from Jesus when he is already filled with himself.

    And still they wont come...

    Joh_7:38 He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.

    i can only assume no one is interested..

    When return will I find faith upon the earth....

    I like your words but I could not hear the sound on your little video even with my hearing aids on. No closed captions!

    No, really, not very many are! But remember what God said to Jeremiah:

    "Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee." Jerem 7:27

    God says to speak to them so speak to them, but don't be surprised if there is no response!

    It seems very hopeless when we look around us, but God knows already that only a very few will respond in that more perfect way. Why He has done things as He has with so many that will not come Him, I cannot say. But Jesus in these words to Jerusalem confirms His willingness to gather us to Him... if only we will respond:

    "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!" Matt 23:37

    This is the saddest,

    And the Lord said, To what then shall I compare the men of this generation? And to what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in a market and calling to one another, and saying, We have played the flute to you, and you have not danced; we have mourned to you, and you did not weep. 33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, He has a demon. 34 The Son of man has come eating and drinking, and you say, Behold a gluttonous man and a winebibber, a friend of tax-collectors and sinners! 35 But wisdom has been justified by all her children.


    God bless you all my friends
