I recently fell in love with this old door. I’m not sure whether the ring is a knocker, or just a pull device (??) Nevertheless, here’s today’s Sunday sermon:
To access information from heaven, one must first have a firm faith and a deep desire. One needs to “ask with a sincere heart and real intent, having faith in Jesus Christ.” “Real intent” means that one really intends to follow the divine direction given.
The next requirement is to study the matter diligently.
…to receive revelation unique to your own needs and responsibilities, certain guidelines prevail. The Lord asks you to develop “faith, hope, charity and love, with an eye single to the glory of God.” Then with your firm “faith, virtue, knowledge, temperance, patience, brotherly kindness, godliness, charity, humility, and diligence,” you may ask, and you will receive; you may knock, and it will be opened unto you.
Revelation from God is always compatible with His eternal law. It never contradicts His doctrine. It is facilitated by proper reverence for Deity. The Master gave this instruction:
“I, the Lord, am merciful and gracious unto those who fear me, and delight to honor those who serve me in righteousness and in truth unto the end.
“Great shall be their reward and eternal shall be their glory.
