SAVED- BY A BUILDING?

Saved – by a Building?



“John answered and said, A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.” John 3:27.

The reason why Jesus Christ is not revealing Himself to them is because they never came to Him. They are not pursuing Jesus Christ because the truths of God are foolish to them. The only other way to go is the world.
