MIDDLE OF THE FEAST
Jesus keeps pointing back to God the Father as His source of authority
APPLY – know your authority, don’t have to guess – If God says, then God rules. The End!
World view center – keeps you centered.
CAN THIS BE …. QUESTIONS abound
Illustration – watching stock
Buyers and sellers w/ a lot of questions being asked!!!
WARNING – Starving….
VS 34…34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.”
Patrick Bremen Diary
Frid 26th Froze hard last night today clear & warm Wind S: E: blowing briskly Marthas jaw swelled with the toothache; hungry times in camp, plenty hides but the folks will not eat them we eat them with a tolerable good apetite. Thanks be to Almighty God. Amen Mrs Murphy said here yesterday that thought she would commence on Milt. &
eat him. I dont that she has done so yet, it is distressing The Donnos told the California folks that they commence to eat the dead people 4 days ago, if they did not succeed that day or next in finding their cattle then under ten or twelve feet of snow & did not know the spot or near it, I suppose they have done so ere this time.

What would a famine of God’s Word look like….
“The days are coming,” declares the Sovereign Lord,
“when I will send a famine through the land—
not a famine of food or a thirst for water,
but a famine of hearing the words of the Lord.
People will stagger from sea to sea
and wander from north to east,
searching for the word of the Lord,
but they will not find it.
13 “In that day
“the lovely young women and strong young men
will faint because of thirst.
“Man does not live by bread only, but man lives by everything that proceeds out of the mouth of Yahweh” (Deuteronomy 8:3).
Jesus’ loud pronouncement!
2 Peter 1
20 But you need to realize that no one alone can understand any of the prophecies in the Scriptures. 21 The prophets did not think these things up on their own, but they were guided by the Spirit of God.
Vs… 40-52 A SPLIT DECISION
The debate continues….
