PRINCIPLES OF FAILURE Part 4
John 14:21, Jesus said
He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.
Folks, I'm on part 4, and I still can't get out of the introduction. How does Jesus manifest Himself to an obedient Christian? He might do it by "speaking" to him directly, or He might speak to him through the Scriptures or through a person. I have noticed that the missionaries who fail here in Mexico do not go to successful Christians for advice. Instead, they listen to people who are themselves unsuccessful. The Bible tells us that evil communications corrupt good manners; one missionary family spent four years listening to an untruthful person, and now the Jehovah's Witnesses are making an issue out of the false reports of success that they were posting.
God can bless a person by steering him or her to good advisors, and He does that to obedient Christians.
