    Did you know that Jesus told the twelve Disiples that he was going to get beaten and die and rise again in Luke 18:31-34. The twelve did not understand nor believe that it was going to happen. They thought Jesus was going to be there King on earth. The twelve was very confused about Jesus. When Jesus died, not one Disiple was waiting for the resurrection. Not one.

    V47 - 50. "Prophecy is not an end by itself it is a means to the end". Jesus saw Nathaniel and prophesied about him (V 47) and this generated faith in him and Jesus said unto him because you believed this prophecy you will see greater things(V 50). He honours a prophet receives a prophetic reward.

    V. 47 - " ..... in whom I no guile." This statement proves early on that Jesus can see into our hearts. I know personally of no one outside of living for Jesus, that has no guile. But, Jesus wasn't saying Nathaniel was sinless, we all have been born in sin, let alone the sins we have committed. Guile is - lying, craftiness, evil.

    No man can conceive this except God,The Great I Am, God, The Creator, God The Father, God The Son, God The Holy Ghost. Glory be To God. I said Was not going to tell it, when I found Jesus. I told everybody when I Found Jesus, He is my only Friend. I am His.
