    l Cor2:9 is an amazing verse with lots of hiden treasures, that no physical eye can see. The inspirational Image has illuminated my whole life. Iam thinking, what if these things were reveald to the sons and daughters of men, would rebelion against God continue on earth? well, it's a million dollar question. However, I feel so much hambled by this scripture.Isiah 64:4 reads -For since the beginning of the world men have not heared nor perceived by the ear, neither has the eye seen, O God, besides you, what he has prepared for him that waits for him.I pray that our Hravenly Father YAHWEH THE ELOHIM of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob opens my eyes that i may see the wonderful truths in His Laws. Thak you FATHER in in YAHUSHUA'S name, AMEN.
