GREAT and MIGHTY THINGS WHICH YOU KNOW NOT

Throughout the Old Testament we read about Israel's unfaithfulness to the LORD and how He relentlessly, faithfully draws them back to Himself, where they enjoy the blessing of renewed zeal and love for YHWH, of the fruitfulness of the land, of peace among her national neighbors with Israel, and so much more.

Even in the times of harshest judgment, where death via casualties of war, famine, disease and the ruin of their beloved city of Jerusalem, and even the temple itself, the LORD always pronounces a message of hope: restoration to the land, and blessing from the LORD Who will rule over the nation, bringing peace and prosperity.

JEWELS From the GOSPEL Of JOHN - JOHN 1:43-46 - FAITHFUL PHILIP WHO FOLLOWS

The following is a series of short exhortations, brief commentary and writings to convey thoughtful meditation on God's Word. I have chosen the Gospel of John as the subject. These articles will not run contiguously on this blog but peppered throughout and in the midst of other articles (though some might be posted consecutively). I pray that these will be a blessing and an edification for the saints.

JOHN 1:43-46
43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.
44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
