    In a waking vision beside the Lamb, a voice thundered in the cloud that said: "is this that you were searching for."

    Vs 25 should say "ye" instead of he.

    1 Peter 2:11-25 (free; strangers and Pilgrims)

    11 Dearly Beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

    12 Having your conversation honest among Gentiles that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, which they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.

    13 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake, whether it be to the king, as supreme;

    14 Or to governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.

    15 For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:

    16 As Free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

    17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.

    18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.

    19 For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.

    20 For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.

    21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps;

    22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:

    23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously;

    24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness; by whose stripes ye were healed.

    25 For he were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

    God is spirit. Abraham saw his back. He was too scared to look. God is so Holy, no one can look on him and live. That's why we needed Jesus to come.

    Adam was formed by God from DUST. That is why humans are different colors. That and the inter-marrying with other tribes, groups, from other countries.

    God Purposed: Let us make man

    Jesus spoke that Purpose

    The Holy Spirit performed it

    All 3 creating together = The Godhead.

    None of that is important to God. He just wants us to look like JESUS on earth: merciful, kind, loving, follower of right things (not evil), and forgiving. Speaks the truth in love; not anger or prejudiced. It's hard, but the rewards on earth and in Heaven are HUGE.

    Science has proved that dust contains all colors of the spectrum.

    God is Spirit,

    The Holy Spirit is spirit

    Jesus is fully God, and fully man.

    The Bible calls them 'The Godhead'

    Spirit means invisible to the human eye, but they are audible to the Human ear.

    Satan can fake speech too. If it scares you and gives you the creeps... it probably him. :/

    Don't listen to That voice.

    The bible says he's a spirit, Why would you think he's any color?
