Peace be unto you. Thanks be to God for our right Spirit. Hence we find comfort and peace in accepting the will of God. Thus we are grateful for the joy it brings.

Beloved there s a burning desire among the righteous for the true word God. This unquenchable thirst also allows us to see through the unrighteous. Is this a miracle are just a blessing from God for those that have a right Spirit? We continue our discussion in the Gospel of John and our primary scripture at John the 7th Chapter.
John 7: 17: "If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself."
Is it necessary to know the doctrine before one could do his will? But, what if a person is not disposed to do the will (follow) of God? As the writer reveals the teaching of Jesus we see that those that do not follow God, and do not have God in their hearts will waver.
Therefore those that have a weak heart will fail to see Truth when it is presented. We often encounter this in our writings about the Truth of the Bible. Also we have noted this in some of the brief conversations we have had regarding the false teaching among those in the Christian community. (Also see Hosea 6: 1-3. However begin with the last verse in previous chapter).
John 7: 18: "He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him."
Just how valid are credentials from Bible, Schools and Seminaries? Do Bible schools teach the Truth of the Bible? Do the various denominations have their own interpretations of the Bible? Do those that display (often bogus) credentials as Doctors of Divinity, boast as to their Biblical knowledge? Does God prepare those that He calls to the ministry? Is God's calling more important than instruction in the flesh?
John 5: 41: "I receive not honor from men."
Are most Preachers more concerned about pleasing a brotherhood of Preachers who are lifted up in pride? Brethren just who should be lifted up? Look closely at the following:
John 8: 50, 54: "And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh and judgeth."
"Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:"

About the Author
We are thankful today as we bear witness that the Truth of God is greater than all the money in the world. Let it be written that we do not come to glorify poverty and the lack of resources. However we come with a message of Truth that is a cooling drink to the thirsty who have the right to the Spring of life.
