Testify of the Invisible

When we talk about evidence we will inevitably get to the subject of testimony. During any trial people are called forth to say what they know, saw and heard. Sometimes expert testimony is also given to corroborate that evidence. However all testimony in a trial must have probative value which means it must prove the point of the fact being established. Again, the Kingdom of God (KoG) is the fact being established by this blog. Therefore if our testimony is to have probative value it must present proof of the God’s Kingdom.

 1 John 5:10
He who believes in the Son of God has the witness in himself; he who does not believe God has made Him a liar, because he has not believed the testimony that God has given of His Son.

  Each and every human carries within themself two testimonies one as a child of Adam and the other as a child of God.  In our unity with God we must become aware of the reality of God’s spiritual presence and His Kingdom. This makes us all brothers and sisters in the fellowship as humans and as children of the kingdom. For example, in the fictional television series CSI, a concept is proposed that says if a person commits a crime they will leave a trace of their presence at the scene of the crime and therefore evidence can be gathered to prove they were present.

 As humans our DNA, Culture and mindset can be traced backed to the earliest human remains and with scriptural help all the way back to our human Father, Adam. Likewise our spiritual awareness, spiritual curiosity, and spiritual traditions can also be traced back to our spiritual Father, God.

 In a court of law people are called on to give testimony for the purpose of trying to establish an already existing fact. If testimony fails to have probative value it can be objected to and ruled irrelevant or immaterial because it does not prove the point of the case. The same is true with the KoG, and when we give Kingdom evidence we must be mindful that it is not about the human vessel carrying the evidence it is about the infinite supernatural presence animating the human life. The scriptural concept of pride warns about this and our jury of peers can also rule our evidence immaterial if our presentation is about us and not the KoG.

 Also in a court of law, testimony can be objected to if it calls for speculation, calls for a conclusion, is considered argumentative, or is inflammatory. Likewise when we present Kingdom testimony we must try to understand how we are presenting it to others.

 If we look at an event in either the spiritual or material worlds there is a story surrounding the event we are trying to prove. The event story has a beginning, middle and an end. Again, for testimony to have probative value it must corroborate the events of the story bringing light to the truth of the event. If testimony can corroborate other pieces of testimony making the story clear we could assign great value to that testimony and consider that a connecting piece in the story puzzle. However if we can disprove a piece of testimonial evidence we could cause doubt concerning the facts of the story that is being told.

Romans 1:20
For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

 Revelation 19:10
And I fell at his feet to worship him. But he said to me, “See that you do not do that! I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren who have the testimony of Jesus. Worship God! For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

 I have often heard the Kingdom of God described as the puzzle box top picture. When a person tries to solve a puzzle and they have the final picture, putting the pieces together could be simpler. Biblical scripture is about 6000 years of narrative, broken up into two testaments. All of which points to the fact of God’s Kingdom.

 Without biblical scripture Jewish and Christian religions would be without a framework or purpose. However these religions of which I am a member traditionally present scriptural testimony in a way that calls for speculation, calls for a conclusion, is considered argumentative or is inflammatory. This is not to call into question the truthfulness of scripture, this goes directly to the presentation of testimonial evidence.

 1 John 2:9
He who says he is in the light, and hates his brother, is in darkness until now.

 Luke 23:34
Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”

 As Children of God we may not see the truth, and even Jesus asked Father to forgive them for their ignorance to the truth. Like a moth to a flame we have been created in the image of our spiritual Father. If we understand God’s love more that our traditions we will draw closer to God and His Kingdom. As we can put some of our religious traditions on hold and seek the KoG we will move away from things that are traditionally irrelevant or immaterial.

 The religious communities of the materialistic world carry an interpretation of the box top that is sometimes objected to by a jury of our peers. What is needed is a more spiritual interpretation of the KoG. As spiritual awareness increases there will be greater probative value and fewer objections to the evidence we are presenting.

 Matthew 6:33
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Living in Liberating Innocence

In keeping with our mission we are using evidentiary law and its tenants as a metaphor concerning the proof needed to reveal the activity of the Kingdom of God (KoG). So let’s take a look at another very powerful type of evidence. Exculpatory evidence removes guilt from a defendant and if the trial is just, innocence will be again restored for the defendant. If there is a presumption of innocence, in our American system of justice (our part of the material world), why is the concept of exculpatory evidence a part of evidentiary law?  That leads to the next question, at what point is guilt applied?  If the answer is that guilt is only applied after a just conviction by trial, then why did not the exculpatory evidence protect the innocent during first trial? If you are following my logic, why, if innocence is presumed and when person is truly innocent, would we ever need the legal tenant called exculpatory evidence?

 These are not trick questions but ones that I am using to highlight the difference between the KoG and the kingdom if this world. In God’s invisible and spiritual Kingdom there is a transparency and knowledge that is not available to the senses of people who only live by the revelation of the material realm. Our heavenly Father makes available three qualities by His Spirit to all of us who know the truth and live in the KoG. God is Omnipresent, Omniscient and Omnipotent. These all-qualities mean that everything is already in the Kingdom because what else is there besides all?  So the judicial system of the KoG is far superior to that of mankind’s judicial systems, be they religious or secular. So now I hope you are catching on to the fact that God alone is the Justice of the eternal Supreme Court and He will determine innocence.

 Colossians 1:16
For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

 Hebrews 11:3
By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.

 Genesis 1:1
[ The History of Creation ] In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

 All members of the KoG have been given the ultimate evidence which is the blood of Christ for our sin. Sin separates and forgiveness establishes a relationship to a position of innocence. The bible tells us that “Love covers a multitude of sin” and that “perfect love cast out all fear”. So without a consciousness of our heavenly Father’s love we cannot believe He has forgiven us. Therefore if there is any reasonable doubt concerning Gods forgiveness we will hide in fear from God who in truth loves us. Not having an understanding of this truth is a condition that bible calls the “carnal mind”. It believes that things are separate from God, some things are good and some things are evil (the original sin).

 Even those who believe they are doing kingdom work and have assumed the responsibility to deliver the good news of innocence, in my experience sometimes view personal relationships from this carnal mind point of view. For example, how many times have we had the salvation message preached to us as if it did not work the first, or the last time that we made the commitment? If you are like me we help our children make the commitment, but every time they, in our judgment, fail to measure up we ask them or guilt them into providing more compelling evidence that their eternal salvation is still intact. In reality when most of us look in the mirror, judging ourselves again and again, we try to balance our good actions against the justifications of our bad actions. In other words if a jury of our peers was convened, even if we ourselves were on said jury, most of us would still need a preponderance exculpatory evidence to win a favorable verdict.

 If there is one common benefit every human looks for as a reason to become a member of God’s Kingdom it is the freedom from guilt. We know this on the inside to be true, but from the carnal conscience the KoG is for a distant time in the future. The objective of most religions is to gain enough right standing prior to our final breath to enter into the kingdom. Jesus the Master said “that the Kingdom is at hand”, meaning it is already present in time. But today one of the tag lines in a popular song at the top of the charts is “I do not want to go to heaven if I can’t get in.”

 For those who have experienced a Protestant Christian conversion, you know that the entire focus of the “born again” experience is all about the forgiveness of sin. The process is traditionally revealed something like this. As a member of the world God, has this other organization call the church and if you confess all your sins you are free to enter. The promise that “the old has passed away and all things are made new” is very compelling. Even more compelling is the threat that eternal separation from God is inescapable if you fail to join or maintain church membership. But once you have joined, the keepers of the membership gate continue to require fresh and compelling evidence of your ability to repent and produce faith evidence in order to be considered a member in good standing with your eternal salvation intact.

 Catholics offer a baptism at birth which grants free entrance into the church and for people like my earthly father they make provisions that allow the traditions and values of membership to pass to the newly converted. As a child there was something mystical and liberating about being “ok with God” from birth. But as we get older the carnal mind no longer believes the innocence of salvation and as we try to keep up with the weekly requirements for repentance there develops a burden sometimes creates a need to justify membership for eternal salvation.

 Those were my simplified explanations of how the majority of western Christians use religion to solve the relation problems with God. However, Jesus the master operating as the Christ died for all men and became the only true exculpatory evidence any of us children of Adam will ever need. If membership in the KoG represents freedom from sin and its associated guilt, then proof of membership is everything.  So the truth of Kingdom is, that God, through Christ, has made us innocent and provided “once for all”; that is for all of mankind and for all time both, temporal and eternal, an irrevocable membership. For those who have awakened to the truth concerning this spiritual Kingdom the burden of proof has forever been removed and the presumption of innocence provides freedom of relationship with God that will never be surpassed.

 In old Jewish tradition when a man and a woman want to change their relationship status to married, representatives from each family, usually the fathers of the bride and groom negotiate the terms of this marriage. Traditionally at a family dinner the father of the groom would offer a contract with a dowry and then push his wine goblet across the table to signify an offer. The father of the bride would either accept or continue the negotiation by sliding the cup back and forth until an agreement was reached. Once accepted you had a marriage and the cup was accepted. The groom and his father return to his father’s home and the groom would build a room on the house and the bride would use the dowry to prepare for the marriage.

 Hebrews 6:13
[ God’s Infallible Purpose in Christ ] For when God made a promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no one greater, He swore by Himself,

In the Garden of Gethsemane, through scripture we witness this negation taking place. Jesus makes the statement in Matthew 26:39 “Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me”.  God has given us, the bride of Christ, Holy Spirit as a dowry payment until Jesus Christ returns from adding rooms onto His Father’s mansion. If we are awake to this truth, we can become the evidence, that the possibility has become reality today. Therefore our sales pitch if you will, should simply be, He did it for me, and now by His grace innocence has been restored for all.

2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

 As we consciously make the Kingdom available to all that we meet, we are doing our Father’s will. We are providing powerful evidence and we become witnesses to the expansion of God’s Kingdom. When an ambassador leaves his kingdom as a representative he has immunity from the laws that govern the land that he is visiting and he cannot be found guilty. Some ambassadors are authorized to grant asylum to the kingdom they represent. We can be ambassadors to the KoG, if we walk in the liberty of innocence and help reconcile others to the Kingdom.

 We live in a time where the keepers of the existing state of affairs in the material world, sometimes unknowingly, erect obstacles to the entrance of the KoG to prevent people from leaving their carnal kingdoms. There is a worldly mindset that is universal in its delusion of God’s love. However Jesus has overcome the world for us and we have been made innocent and can live in the liberty of that truth. Members of God’s Kingdom who understand this have been given the power and authority to reveal the truth about our innocence so people can live free. As this truth of innocence, which is counter to the present culture, is revealed it will cause more and more people to do whatever it takes to enter the true and spiritual Kingdom of God.

 Matthew 11:12
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by force.

Please chime in on the topics below.

  1. Are you living and expressing Kingdom evidence such that it is making all the people around feel free enough to openly or secretly leave the material world and join in the KoG?
  2. How often does someone impose a burden of proof on you, and what exculpatory evidence do you provide, or do you just run and hide?  Be specific.

Chains That Bind

One of the principal concepts of evidentiary law is the Chain of Custody (CoC). This is simply the process that documents the seizure, custody and disposition of evidence. The subject of our evidence in this blog is that which establishes the fact about the Kingdom of God. If we are presenting evidence it must also be authentic. The chain of custody helps to establish the validity of our evidence.

Today we live in a world of mobile media that is socially networked and people work very hard to stand above the noise to gain our attention. For example in the Christian evangelical religion of which I am most familiar, claims of revival are used to generate momentum and established religious authority to validate ministry. Historically there have been many charlatans throughout the centuries that have tried to manipulate the devotions of people for various reasons, all claiming to have authentic evidence that proves they have access and authority to God’s spiritual Kingdom.

So how do we respond to those claims of evidence that are being presented? More importantly how can we be sure that the evidence we have gathered will reveal the spiritual world that the son/daughters of God have been granted access. If we allow ourselves to get into a hype battle with the material world then we cheapen the spiritual integrity of our relationship with our heavenly Father.

A chain has the purpose of binding things together.  In this case we are binding the truth of spiritual reality to our brothers and sisters who have become dull or are asleep to the spiritual truth. Depending on the degree of separation between two objects the type of chain or evidence must vary. Also if the pull on our minds by material objects then we must forge an effective chain to establish a spiritual relationship. What separates most in the material world from spiritual truth is a lack of conciseness and understanding of the reality concerning the spiritual realm.

Our material world is full of icons, symbols, and events that should connect the conscience of mankind  to the spiritual kingdom. Sadly, most of the evidence has to do with religion or the replica of spiritual reality in this material world. So when the church bell rings, when the Imam calls people to prayer, when people wear religious clothing and hair styles, or even if the news speaks of the events surrounding a holy war, the minds of mankind are not quickened, nor is their thinking transformed and focused on the spiritual. This is because chains of religious evidence can only arouse a connection to a material reality.

Likewise in a judicial court the purpose of evidencein custody is to tie the juror’s back to a moment in time, to establish a fact surrounding an event. Spiritual evidence is eternal and free from the bonds of time. So what is the truth behind our evidence? Simply put, it is the fact that God is one with mankind individually and that each individual can choose to live in that reality of spiritual oneness with their heavenly Father. Material reality and the events that happen in the temporal realm are real but unless we understand the relationships between the material and spiritual worlds we can miss the cause and effect of these relationships.

Here is a little biblical history or evidence that ties these two worlds together. Adam our earthly Father before his consciousness changed was able to demonstrate the oneness of the spiritual and the material worlds as a human being in flesh. His relationship was such that he and eve walked with God. However when their conscious changed they hid from God, who asked who told you were naked? From that moment I submit to you as biblical evidence that man was no longer had a consciousness of being one with God. But that was not nor is it the point of view of our Eternal Father. The bible calls this new mindset of Adam the “knowledge of good and evil”. That was the moment when mankind separated God from itself and everything.

Some 4000 year after Adam and Eve walked out of the garden, Jesus Christ of Nazareth came to reestablish the spiritual reality that men and women individually can renew their minds to the understanding that they are one with God. The bible calls Jesus the last Adam and the bible calls this new mindset the “mind of Christ”. With this consciousness Jesus was able to demonstrate the unity and authority available when mankind becomes conscious of a relationship with their spiritual Father. Jesus was famous for saying “If you see me you see the Father.”  From the human point of view He was convicted and crucified for blasphemy when He stated that He was equal or one with God. The truth of spiritual reality is that when we are one in the spirit we are also one in the natural. But from an earthly point of view the equation does not compute.

John 17:22-23 (NKJV)  And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

So what matters with evidence, be it biblical testimony, spiritual evidence, or material evidence, is what is chained to the evidence and what fact is the evidence trying establish. Jurors examine evidence and its authentication to judge facts. Anyone can make claims concerning the spiritual realm but can we prove those claims to jurors who are materialistic in their training and understanding? Can we forge a chain of reasonable strength for a jury of our peers so they can say that the evidence speaks for itself?

As we live and gather evidence we must remain mindful of the facts concerning the spiritual reality we are establishing. The religious among us have their agenda for which they present their evidence. But we who are spiritual must be faithful to our mission. We live in a world in which all people are trained to live only by their natural senses and we are tempted every day to return to the state of sleep. But by the grace of God we have become awaken to the truth of the spiritual realm.

Gal 6:1(NKJV) Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.

  1. What is your affiliated organization trying to reveal?
  2. What evidence do you use to establish facts or authority?

Made in the KoG

Evidence is simply the proof of fact. The specific evidence we are discussing is that which concerns the invisible realm. Jesus Christ identified it as the Kingdom within. As sons and daughters of Adam we all live in this 3-dimensional materialistic world and with the use of our 5 senses we observe material objects and the relationships of those objects which includes our own human body. At the birth of Adam God breathed His Spirit into mankind, making him /her capable of experiencing the spiritual world and thus man and women became living souls with flesh and spirit having the ability to observe and interact within both the material and spiritual worlds.

 Today most people have lost their awareness of the spiritual realm. Humans are born and trained to rely only their senses that observe only this materialistic world. In Christian religious thought and through a process known as the new birth, people can become awakened again and become aware of the spiritual world also known as the Kingdom of God. Sadly today most of Christian religious participation places much of its biblical focus and understanding only on how our new relationship affects the things of this material world. Furthermore if there is an examination of biblical references to the spiritual realm it is traditionally interpreted to deal with our relationship after death of the human body. In other words as long as we have a material body, biblical references to spiritual laws will apply after we get new spiritual bodies.

 Where religion falls short in its exploration the of man’s spiritual conscious, man outside of religion will use it imagination and invent a life free from the constraints of the material world. Today’s media artist create factious characters with abilities to see the dead, experience freedom from death and use heighten brain function that provide the recall of memories, and increased wisdom. The phenomena of vampires, math geniuses, and people with super social and psychic capabilities are very popular today.

 But to most people they have no idea that this is the very mission of God or heavenly Father. The bible speaks to Adam as the prototype and also speaks of Jesus as being (excuse my humor) Adam version 2.0 or the last Adam.  Evidence of the Spirit made flesh is the focus of this blog. Encouraging each other to become more like Christ and having the mind of Christ will be this blogs legacy. That is having a spiritual consciousness and an understanding that we need and can make known the things of God. Because God is Spirit and no human eyes can see the image of God. However Jesus was famous for saying “if you see me then you see the Father”.

 Genesis 1:26-27 (New King James Version)   Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

 So as we explore the testimony of Jesus and gather our personal evidence it is all about making conscience the spiritual realm or the KoG. It is easy to gather evidence concerning the operation of laws in the material world. So unless we become aware of the spiritual realm and train our spiritual senses to observe this invisible Kingdom we will remain blind to the fact. So the reason for this blog is simply to awaken those that are blind and to share with those that are already awake on how to gather evidence for the purpose of awakening others. It is my hope that this will be a conversation because I realize I am on a journey like others and I have a lot to learn. Needless to say that there is still within me the need for a greater awakening.

Please comment or submit evidence:

  1. As to when you became awake to the spiritual realities.
  2. Who was the last person you helped to awaken.

Easy Evidence

Since the Kingdom of God (KoG) is invisible, should we assume that the substance of the Kingdom would be the same? Yes and no. Here is a secret; Love is the substance of the kingdom; God is love. Now that we have just celebrated Valentine’s Day, I hope you noticed how plentiful God is. After all, for less than $5 anybody could have expressed love to someone and most receiving that expression of love would have willingly receive it with joy.

 When we talk about God we are talking about eternity and infinity. Just because something is inexhaustible does not mean it is cheap. That may not appear to be true in the material world, because we tend to place value on things that are limited in supply. And so I submit as our first piece of evidence “God’s Love”. This substance is so available it makes no sense to try to lock it up. From the ground we walk on, to the planets in our solar system that help sustain life on earth and the very flesh we live in are all made of this stuff called love.

 To prove how plentiful love is think back to Valentine’s Day. The inability to express love is considered a failure at the most basic level of our existence. We are not talking about laying down your life, making a $1000 contribution, or even giving up a major part of your day. On this day you could have given the simplest expression and it was accepted. A simple Hersey’s kiss or a phone call to simply say the words “Happy Valentine’s Day” was sufficient.

 As Christians; the death by crucifixion is the one piece of evidence that has clearly stated God’s love for all mankind. That single act, a limited edition, a once and for all demonstration, a never need to be repeated statement that covers the bill for us materialistic minded people. Spiritually “let there be light” should have been enough, because that act by Christ created the relationship in the beginning.

 So, I submit LOVE as our first piece of evidence of this spiritual KoG. For people who are conscience of the Kingdom love is the only currency. This is the stuff we give away and use to entice others to become conscience of their true home. If earthly currency is proof of existence for previous civilizations, then love can be the proof of this KoG. After all love is what we are known for.

 1 John 4:8 (NKJV) He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.

John 13:35 (NKJV) By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.

1 John 4:16 (NKJV) And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.

 

 Please comment or submit evidence:

  1. If you revealed the Kingdom with an act of love.
  2. If you received or witnessed a conscience awakening act of the Kingdom.

WELCOME!

This blog is all about what cannot be seen with human eyes. This is my attempt to start a conversation about the Kingdom of God (KoG). It is my goal to use the subject of evidentiary law as a metaphor for demonstrating this invisible Kingdom. Evidence is normally about tangible proof for events that happen in this natural realm. I believe we are all called to present evidence or demonstrate the existence of the spiritual realm once we have discovered it.

Evidence has one purpose and that is to establish fact. Even if we are a firsthand witness we collect and secure the evidence for that one reason. The converse is true of those who destroy evidence. For us who live and operate in both time and eternity we do not need any more proof of its existence. However what we do need is a greater consciousness of our heavenly Father and His Kingdom. For example, after we learn how to paint we can use the basic skills to acquire new skills and become an artist. Spiritual living is also an art that allows God to express the reality of His existence through us.

I do not want this blog to become a place where the conversation is about trying to impress each other with our knowledge. I truly want this to be a place of encouragement and collaboration. I believe the heart behind Jesus’ demonstrations was to cause people’s spiritual awareness to awaken. These demonstrations were also about making people conscious and what is available to mankind. This has been the mission of God from the beginning as it concerns Adam and Eve and all their children.

There is power and confidence in community. For any of us to get here we have had to travel alone and learn to lean on our invisible Father. I would encourage all of us to remain in that attitude of embracing the lone wilderness experiences. If your method has been meditation, fasting, watching, retreating or just plain practicing the presence of God; guard that method and protect it, but always remain willing and open to change.

Our communication with God is precious above all. Chasing manifestations in this material world can lead to disaster. But the awe of discovering a glimpse of our Father expressed, should cause any of His lover’s hearts to skip a beat. It will always be a bonus to share that experience with others. It is not necessary, but to share with a brother or a sister who is also aware of our Father when He moves and say to one another “did you see that, or hear that, smell that, taste that or feel that, is a really cool experience.

The Apostle Paul said it is more effective to demonstrate the reality of what is on the inside of us. Jesus our brother and head of this invisible Kingdom identified it as a spiritual person that we each carry on the inside of us.

1Corinthans 2:1-5 (New King James Version; NKJV)    And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

Luke 17:20-23 (NKJV)    Now when He was asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, He answered them and said, “The kingdom of God does not come with observation; 21 nor will they say, ‘See here!’ or ‘See there! For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”  22 Then He said to the disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man, and you will not see it. 23 And they will say to you, ‘Look here!’ or ‘Look there!’ Do not go after them or follow them.

I want our conversation to encourage us to become still enough to listen to the still small voice we carry on the inside. Then I want us to be encouraged to act on what we hear. Collecting evidence of the results of God’s working through our lives is proof that we understand and can allow God’s Spirit to operate through us. That, my friends is the art of spiritual living.

**A caution to all. Collecting evidence of the operation of the invisible is the main focus of our conversation; however chasing evidence is not the goal. I promise, I will repeat this often. **

It is true that faith without works is dead but spiritual work is often and on purpose sometimes best kept hidden. Jesus even told people not to tell anyone of the works He performed. Jesus performed miracles with bread and fish several times and many who observed including the disciples totally missed the purpose and the art of the miracle. 2000 plus years later I think we need to heed the lessons and remember in humility we are also flesh and spirit.
