“Come and eat lunch” (John 21:12)

Amid the apostasy era, after His resurrection, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ reveled Himself to the disciples several times. He greeted and made peace, walked, sat and ate with them. At the third of His revelation to the apostles, the Lord came to the sea of Tiberias whilst the apostles Peter, Thomas and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of His disciples were together. Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We are going with you also.” They went out and immediately got into the boat, and that night they caught nothing. But when the morning had now come, Jesus stood on the shore; yet the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Then Jesus said to them, “Children, have you any food?”

“Enter not into the path of the wicked” (Proverbs 4:14)

One of the biggest reasons God created humans is for them to praise Him and take part of His glory. As rubbing stones will create fire, sin which is evil was first initiated by the devil in the midst of angles. The devil and those who believed his deceptive ideas fall out of grace. The devil used snake to give advice to Adam and Eve to follow the wrong path he took. His advice deceived Adam saying, “You will not surely die. For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” and Eve and lead them to evil deeds. (Genesis 3:4-5)

“Whoever listens to me will dwell safely” (Proverb 1:33)

Humans have the natural ability to use their sense ‘listening’ rather than just hearing, for the better comprehension of discourses. This gift bestowed from God was from the creation of mankind.

Though he defied His law and command, the Holy Father gave His word to save him from eternal fire and thus send His Begotten Son, Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Our redeemer also taught the word of God, gospel for human race could get life in Him.
