VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. They reasoned and argued with one another

"And they reasoned and argued with one another,"

No need for human wisdom.

Proverbs 20:3 (The Message)

20:3 It's a mark of good character to avert quarrels, but fools love to pick fights.

Proverbs 17:19 (The Message)

17:19 The person who courts sin, marries trouble; build a wall, invite a burglar.

Proverbs 22:10 (The Message)

22:10 Kick out the troublemakers and things will quiet down; you need a break from bickering and griping!

But CHRIST have pitied them, at this point CHRIST should have kicked them out of their FATHER'S House.

B. If we say: "Heaven"

"If we say, From heaven, He will say, Why then did you not believe him?"

They're wrong. If they say "Heaven", then JESUS will reveal Himself fully to them.

1 Corinthians 1:25 (The Message)

1:25 Human wisdom is so tinny, so impotent, next to the seeming absurdity of God. Human strength can't begin to compete with God's "weakness."

Isaiah 55:9 (The Message)

55:9 "For as the sky soars high above earth, so the way I work surpasses the way you work, and the way I think is beyond the way you think.

They continued in their "labor" and "work" to reach out to GOD, they didn't know GOD already worked to reach out to them from eternity past in the Person of JESUS CHRIST. If they only allowed CHRIST to "work" in their lives, they have not missed Salvation -- JESUS CHRIST.

Romans 5:8 (The Message)

5:8 But God put his love on the line for us by offering his Son in sacrificial death while we were of no use whatever to him.

1 John 4:10 (The Message)

4:10 This is the kind of love we are talking about—not that we once upon a time loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to clear away our sins and the damage they've done to our relationship with God.

IX. CONCLUSION:

Acknowledge CHRIST before everything and before everyone.

Luke 12:8 (The Message)

12:8 "Stand up for me among the people you meet and the Son of Man will stand up for you before all God's angels.
