    This shows that money is on the line, but when god puts his word, come without money without price, there's no bill to that because freely is the salvation that we are given, we don't receive because we are dominated by the spirit of progress and self gratification. Come without money or without price it's freely given , the children of Israel with all the wealth from Egypt could not buy water in the dessert.Speak to the rock!Moses was told and water came without money and without price. God will ask what we did with our money buying things which satisfied not, Peter and John at the gate of Beautiful, Silver and Gold they didn't have but what they had... "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth raise up and walk."
  • Because God is all, he is Omni. This can only let us as believers know that we will never be able to fully understand the true fullness of God. We are limited because that the way he intended for his children to be so that we will depend on him.
