  • A disciple
    "And he sent him away to his house, saying, Neither go into the town, nor tell it to any in the town." Amos 5:13 "Therefore the prudent shall keep silence in that time; for it is an evil time." Some suppose that Jesus did all His miracles for a show, and for advertising His power; ignoring the facts about the people whose hearts were hostile toward Him, that they weren't worthy to hear any more.
  • A disciple
    "How is it that ye do not understand?" To those who oppose and contradict, there IS NO SIGN GIVEN; but to us who believe and follow Jesus, "Blessed are your eyes, for they see;" and ALL THINGS THAT THE FATHER HAS GIVEN TO JESUS, HE MAKES KNOWN TO US. Why do the haters of the Lord seek a sign, when they have no heart for it? And why do those with eyes to see, so easily act as if they didn't know?
