The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"

When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?"

They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"

"Come," he replied, "and you will see."

So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour.

John and his two followers saw Jesus.  "Look!" says John and they do.  Put yourself in the sandals of one of those followers - trying to catch up - your attention is fixed on this "Lamb".

Suddenly, He turns around and looks you in the eye.  Can you tell there's something "other worldly" about Him?  He holds your eye and draws you in.

You are hooked.

Imagine that you move closer to Jesus until you are standing face to face with Him.  You know, although you don't know how you know, that this is a turning point and that you will never be the same.

What is it like for Jesus to look at you?

What do you do when He gazes into your eyes?

When I feel Christ watching me, I am so very aware of how far I fall short.  And yet, when I look to Him, I know that I am covered.

Not because I am good, but because HE is good.

It is not my righteousness, but His.

My "goodness" only gets in the way; it is when I am aware of  my "badness" that I can fully fall on Him.


As man is, god once was...

Once upon a time there was a man that lived on near a planet called “Kolob”, not so very far away. It came to pass that this man lived a good life and became a god; he came to another little planet called “earth” with his wife that he had married on his home planet.. In their exalted states, this god and his wife gave birth to “spirit children”; the first-born was Jesus – later would come Lucifer, along with many other "spirit children".

The “father-god” was concerned about the future salvation of humans on this new planet and he had a planned. One of his sons (Jesus) agreed with the plan. The other son (Lucifer) did not agree and rebelled, convincing a large number of (pre-human) spirit-children in heaven to side with him. As punishment, the father-god cast Lucifer out of heaven and made Lucifer’s followers into demons, who could never, ever be born as humans(1). Another large number (although not the remaining) of spirit-children sided with Jesus and would be blest to be born as Caucasians. The remaining spirit-children (who had not taken sides) would be born in the line of Cain, as non-Caucasians (black people).
