‘The Coming Change’ (Jesus)

‘The Coming Change’ (Jesus)…all of us are part of His† universe; no matter what we fathom, what we desire, what we look like, or how we were raised; ‒we are all part of His† heart

The Coming Change (Jesus)

it is in seeing signs
that we are warned
the universe
moved by the Almighty God†
guiding us
in the daily living
of our lives

all of us are part
of His† universe
no matter what we fathom
what we desire
what we look like
or how we were raised
‒we are all part
of His† heart

this is He†, Karen Elizabeth
I† am part of His† heart, too
He† made Me† head
He made each individual the body
He† planted us on earth
to grow and prosper
to be defeated and to learn
until that final day
young or old
each...a life intended
each...a life with meaning

each have a guide
if you know it or not
look for the signs
the smallest of them
to the largest of them

I† am He†
Jesus†
I† tell you the truth
everything is connected
everything has meaning

numbers are 'universal'
it is the only language on earth
remaining the same
they speak volumes

change is coming
change is in range

messages are everywhere
in all types of forms
for all nations: numbers

your guide guides you
listen you will hear
look you will see

five, five, five
five, five

change is coming
change is in range

don't waste time
your time will become Mine†
and...you won't know the time

Notes: The photographs are from October 23, 2019: The Dragon and the All-Seeing Eye. The faces…we are never alone. It is David who points these things out. And he is the one who selects the photographs for these writings.

If you have to look with good eyes.
Look closely…Faces.

(November 22, 2021)—The Scripture, Ezekiel 14:1-23 – 15:18, is for you as well. I was led to this after the writing of ‘The Coming Change’.

‘So It Goes’ (Jesus)

‘So It Goes’ (Jesus)…Our thoughts are testing us. The stories we envision in place of bad thoughts helps us conquer the bad thoughts. God will choose if we get those stories or not. When we don’t get them, it is not because God doesn’t love us. It is because HE DOES!

So It Goes (Jesus)

be gentle with thoughts
don't rush
sort through
don't act
they are just thoughts

spirits are easy to decipher
here…let Me† help you
it is I†
the name given: Jesus†

hold onto your thoughts
change them around
if bad thoughts come
chase them away
use stories in their place
build a world you desire
it's okay if it feels real
it should

chase bad thoughts away
as long as you don't act on them
you are okay

you are not bad
for having bad thoughts
thoughts are given
testing you
to see what is in your heart

the more you stay
in the bad thought
the bigger it gets
the closer you get
to doing

don't

change your thoughts
escape the bad thought
remember the thought is put there
to test

you can easily escape 
this being
it will try to squirm its way
around your good thoughts
keep pushing it out
eventually the good thought
will win

Notes: The photograph is from October 8, 2019: Oil Spill Warning. There’s a lot in these photographs. The sun plays a huge part. In this set of photographs an image appears above my head to the left of the sun. At first, it is a baby then it turns to a man, both with a broken ring below it. I explain more on this on the page itself.

(November 13, 2021)—I wrote the following in 2019: “…InCrucifying Jesus†’, I wrote ‘I am in Christ†, Christ† is in me’. These words were put into my heart when I first heard Jesus’ voice. I was overwhelmed with Him. I couldn’t wait to tell the world that He was so real, and so humble, and so…everything! I never dreamed that by revealing this, I’d be worse off than I was before…crucified! How? How is it that after all this time, He is still crucified? How many others out there in this great big ole world are crucified because they spoke, they told that Jesus spoke through them and this crucifixion made them go into silence?…”

Nothing much has changed since 2019 except that I speak regularly to my children and they are now fully part of my life. I still haven’t seen personally my three new grandbabies, and this pains me, but I must wait.

Thoughts…our minds play a huge part in our winning the prize. What prize is that? That of a kingdom. In ‘So It Goes’, Jesus again explains these thoughts. He already taught us that He is the master of thoughts and He’s been teaching us that thoughts are beings in the spiritual world just like confusion and anger are. So we can fight bad thoughts, which are sent to us to confuse us…test us.

‘Synchronomes’ (Jesus)

‘Synchronome’ (Jesus)….God is all energy. Jesus said ‘harvest’…you can’t ‘harvest’ God. All this stuff that you nations are making. All these buildings you nations are building. You are consuming more energy than you make, then you turn to harvesting the wind. You are trying to harvest God and His wrath is building stronger. Meaning: The driven ‘climate change’…you are creating with your turbines and your ego and pride. You are creating this change and God will correct it.

Synchronomes (Jesus)

time is moving
you can't change time
it moves at a constant pace
on your clock
whether up or down
whether right or left
it still moves

in each cycle
time moves one way
then another
it must complete the whole cycle
before the change
but change does come

it is never perceived
it is always normal
in each cycle
which way time moves

change is necessary
for earth to evolve
into what God† has planned for it

this is He†
the Son† of the Almighty God†

He† plans
His† plans are never altered
once they are planned

time is part of every plan

time is important
which way the rocks move
which way the water moves
which way the brain thinks
how high one goes
how low one goes

humans blame
it is part of their brain function
to think they can control all
is another of these functions

it is just a function
the reality
they can't

their brain got the best of them
this cycle
overrun with stuff
then they meet in fancy suits
sipping on money
thinking they have all the answers


they only have
what the Father† gives them

man is after money
God† is after souls

God† allows everything
His† need for mercy
is grand

not only for man
but from earth as well
earth is living and breathing
and she's begging for mercy

God† will bring…
God† is bringing mercy
in the form of His† wrath

you can't contain God†
you can't harvest God†
the more you try
the worst His† wrath becomes

you leads of nations
you hypocrites
the people suffer
because of your need to be first

people are starving
people are homeless
people are sick

and you make money
from their calamity
thinking no one sees

God† sees all!

I† threw the stone
the result will soon be known

your idols have taken the place
of God†
you have fallen
at a great price

your worship of people
has casted light on your
inner workings

you have time to cleanse this
things are to happen
but do not fear
lie in Me†
I† will lie in you

Notes: Again I am led to October 15, 2019: The Phoenix. The symbols are important. This is the day the angel was sent from across the lake. In this particular Picture, the symbol is to the right in my hair.

(November 2, 2021)―This morning: the title ‘Seechranomes‘…that’s what I heard. Then later after the writing, I was instructed to look it up: Synchronome! The Master Clock!

He put the following thoughts in my mind as I typed this up:

‘Splintered Tail’ and ‘Solemn’s Wakeness’ (Jesus)

And God chose me…why? I don’t get to do what I want or get what I desire because I have to do this and you don’t even care…senseless, heartless people. How shameful you should feel inside. But you don’t. Everything is just makeup…covering the reality, which is sickening and dark.

Splintered Tail

it grows sideways
without a story to tell
‒a raging bull...kinda
with no thoughts to yell

it's the back end
to everything‒
already written
a cosmopolitan story
meaningful...absent of legion

it's a beauty
‒it whips itself
here and there
on the ground
in the air
where it dares
without an ounce of care

with every swipe
it makes
its willing to sell
a scrap of itself
‒creating within itself
hell

it doesn't easily bend
if it's crossed
things...people‒
tend to disappear
apparents in missing
or openly...suicide
‒it's a written formulation


Solemn's Wakeness (Jesus)

blaspheme My† name
‒a kinship has been prepared
it is grand and marvelous

nothing will compare

seek refuge
in Him† who speaks to prophets
heed His† warnings

listen close
with open ears

but only if you dare

don't lift your hand
to swear
if you're not sure
what you hear

things change
to suit an evil range

it is I†, the Lord Jesus† the Christ†
the one who came
in the form of man
to be sacrificed
for all mankind

it is I†, the first Son†
of God† the Almighty†

I† am He† who breathes
I† am the living well
that you seek


it is I† whom He† chose
to save you

come to Me†
and I† will give you refuge

I† will be your salvation

I† am your teacher
I† am your priest
I† am your king on earth
that which reigns
under the King† of Heaven

come to Me† and be saved
open your heart to Me†
and I† will open My† heart to you

the prophet has not lied
all given to her
will happen in its time

and time belongs to Him†
the one who rules all things

Notes: The photograph was taken October 12, 2019, during a night walk, which David asked me to go on. I have not posted this set of photographs. I am going to note that the same area is photographed in the day sets and this cross is not in any of them. It only showed up in this particular set of photographs taken at night.

(October 25, 2021)—’Splintered Tail‘ was written yesterday. ‘Solem’s Wakeness’ was written early this morning.

The Scripture, Isaiah 26, was what I was led to after I wrote down ‘Solem’s Wakeness’. You decide what Jesus is telling you. It is a choice for you to make.

Me? I don’t want to do this anymore. Writing this for the Lord has done nothing but brought me loneliness. Strangers upon strangers get to hold my grandbabies while I’m stuck here in this desert, where I don’t want to be, waiting on a promise to be fulfilled that I don’t want fulfilled! And I’m fighting this promise with everything it seems, but God’s promise was clear. It’s useless for me to fight, but I fight anyway. I cry and just want to go home and I know I can’t right now. I’m told all these horrible things and I have to write them. I’m shown all these horrible things and all these beautiful things and I had to write them. I ask myself, ‘For what?’ I see no change. The Catholic church is still sinning. All these man-made churches are still sinning. People are going about like God’s wrath is not upon them. They think they are gods. And God chose me…why? I don’t get to do what I want or get what I desire because I have to do this and you don’t even care…senseless, heartless people. How shameful you should feel inside. But you don’t. Everything is just makeup…covering the reality, which is sickening and dark. The man-made churches teach you this. They lie to you and you believe it, but the truth…from the Lord, you deny. I cry.

‘Real’s Tundra’ (Jesus)

‘Real’s Tundra’ (Jesus)…it is I†, says the Lord Jesus†; confusion is running wild; a broken child; easily finding a home

Real's Tundra (Jesus)

how long will this go on
am I done
has the service ended

no

for what reason
must I say these things
for what reason
must I keep reminding them

truth

how long
must I live
in this loneliness

you will understand, karen elizabeth
things will become clear
everything is not what it seems
God's† hand
works different than man
you will soon see
look, look to the sea

there's so much killing
there's so much wrong
evil…singing its song

it is I†, says the Lord Jesus†
confusion is running wild
a broken child
easily finding a home

He† set it loose
there's too much pillage
‒deception is worse than
killing in your world

they don't see
they are taught to lie
going against the almighty God†
using excuses and blame
they refuse to look within
themselves

'who are 'they', my Lord†?'

those lacking faith

God's† earth will continue
to be, says the Lord Jesus†
it will not end
as a whole

as individuals
as nations
it will end

your pharisees, all those calling themselves
men of God† are lying
‒soon it will be known

those of God† will know the truth
they will understand
in all nations
they will see truth from lies

everyone else will be confused
lost in their own thoughts

they have to make their own choice
once their hearts are revealed
then they will see truth

it takes time, says the Lord Jesus†
sometimes a life time
for most, darkness falls
they live by standards
of the world
they must gather treasures
they cannot share
they save for a future
that they do not know

see all those hungry
see all those homeless

oh, the arrogant
there's so much wealth

each part of the earth
there's wealth

the nations opened up to it
should share
but instead greed consumes them

the vaccine was an example
all the wealthy got it first
then they shared
but only to their chosen first

the Father† will change this

—says the Lord Jesus† the Christ
the first

Note: The frame is from October 2, 2019: Wave Warning. This is the second or third piece that frames from October 2nd have been chosen. And they are chosen by David. The elements in the photograph are described on the page. Click the link to understand.

(October 22, 2021)—‘Real’s Tundra’ was written early this morning. Sometime this afternoon I read articles on this storm coming to the west coast. I reposted the visions I had about the Pacific Ocean and left it at that. As I was lying down in my bed this afternoon, I saw this purple essence not far from where I was lying. I saw it move. Then it was put into my heart about posting this piece. God said that when it was over, you’d know it was Him. It’s not over yet. He’s not done. There is much more to come.

‘It Is The Same’ (Jesus)

Love. It’s doing for other people in such a way that you save their souls. Not their bodies. Their souls. It’s putting yourself on the line because you trust in God’s journey for you. It’s taking the shame, the name calling, the judgment of people who do not live in love so that you CAN live in love. It’s even dying for your friends and family. It’s loving Jesus when others want to persecute you. It’s giving everything away for God. It’d doing without bragging that you do it. It’s staying humble. It’s calling someone out on their sin, not to hurt them, but to save them, not to judge them, but to help them. Amen.

It Is The Same (Jesus)

broken wings don't fly
take a deep breath
it is I†

there is still much to say

'why now?' I ask

'truth' He† says

too many lies
plaguing these lives
I† don't want them to die
so many
don't even ask why

'why?' I ask

a question
left for God†
to be answered
in its proper time

each person's 'why'
has a different answer

'what's my why?' I ask

you were chosen
to do a prophet's work
you are not left
in the dirt
please do not hurt
you will understand
as I† told you

'what about them?' I ask

they, too, will understand
as time moves along
as I† said
the tests are many
the passers are few
all...that what they do
is entirely up to them
I† come to judge
at the end
of each life
all that they chose
I† weigh
good or bad
the marks on their hearts
do not lie

they had choices
all...always have choices
no matter how hard
there is still a choice

the 'way' is the right choice
it usually is the hardest
of all choices

'what is the way?' I ask

love

―Words of Jesus the Christ
the first Son of the one and only
living God

Notes: The photographs chosen are from October 7, 2019: Faces. The answer to my question, and everyone’s question: Are we alone? The answer: Never. We see the Orb all the time in photographs, but no one actually understands them. They just chalk them up to a light issue with the camera. Very well then. God uses the light with the Sun to communicate with me outside of the box of how humans communicate, using technology. Before October 2019, He had sent a message via this website. It was posted in July or August, it is still on this website. I did not take it down. Back to the Orb, He decided to change it up a bit. In some of the frames on this website, He has used the Orb by changing its structure. Below, that is exactly what He did. As David said, it’s His footprint.

10.07.2019.17.45.45A

(September 14, 2021)―After He finished, He led me to Daniel in the Lion’s Den (Daniel 6:1-28). When you read Daniel and what God did for him, you realize that it really wasn’t God at all. It was Daniel’s love for God that saved him. I’ve experienced this, this love in return deal from God. I think a lot of people lose faith because they don’t truly love the whole of the Lord from the beginning.

Let me write more on this. Everyone I talk to says they know God, they love God. In my opinion, they love what man-made preaches teach them and that’s it. They don’t know the whole of God. And that ‘whole‘ includes Jesus. That includes loving God through all of it with your whole heart. That means following His commands, all of them.

Love. If you loved, truly loved, with your whole heart and soul, you wouldn’t lie, steal, manipulate, use people, or do any of the other sins that cause people to fall. You would be honest with everything you had and you wouldn’t harbor hate or anger in malicious ways, like with judging people or races or cultures. None of what I mentioned here is love.

Love. It’s doing for other people in such a way that you save their souls. Not their bodies. Their souls. It’s putting yourself on the line because you trust in God’s journey for you. It’s taking the shame, the name calling, the judgment of people who do not live in love so that you CAN live in love. It’s even dying for your friends and family. It’s loving Jesus when others want to persecute you. It’s giving everything away for God. It’d doing without bragging that you do it. It’s staying humble. It’s calling someone out on their sin, not to hurt them, but to save them, not to judge them, but to help them. Amen.

‘A Talk of Sheik’ (Jesus)

‘A Talk of Sheik’ (Jesus)…’He who belief shall seek. He who seeks shall save himself…the word of Jesus the Christ’ (written exactly as He said to write it)

A Talk of Sheik (Jesus)

it is a normal thing
to question
this 'everything'
this 'situation'

it is demanded
this 'questioning'
wisdom comes from understanding
not from words
of mouths of man

God† sends teachers
but they too much be questioned
as I† was questioned
‒then dive into meditation

don't just believe preachers
what they say
they stumble
protecting a reputation
‒question deep
they begin to rumble

from birth to leaving earth
‒a body in a hearse
you have a choice
no matter your situation
even if you believe‒
you are lost to damnation

you are not

you are fumbling
lost in troubling

but not lost

seek your questions
pose them
don't let up
keep asking

your mind blossoms
when you easily
don't accept
words written and spoken

here's a token:
so much written
so much spoken
piled in buildings
specifically designed‒
for wisdom seekers

once reading was hard
God† threw a bone‒
words are no longer
lost in lard
instead‒
opened eyes wide
living
instead of die

now...the net of confusion
released for the illusion:
everyone can read
so...everyone can write
but what is 'write'
if it's not done right

a noun, a pronoun
an adverb, an adjective
oh good! the order perfected

although God's† intention
a bit rejected

for writing lies
just as good
as telling lies

shhh...who will know
if false genius
you try to show


God†!

His† eyes always in glow

---------------------

the sheik

words done in truth
‒a little hard to do
when the collection
is the main due

you're given the tools
to use
when they settle in abuse
‒it's written off in taboo
where things matter
‒let's not confuse

you have 'til the hearse
to put God† first
release the collectional thirst

this is the First†
go in peace

Notes: Again I’m led to October 15, 2019: The Phoenix. David tells me to look away when I am selecting the pictures. He choses them, tells me when to click. I reposted the angel of October 15th. When I was selecting that frame, the frame below also popped up. Today this exact same frame (10.15.2019.16.56.48). It must be of some importance. P.S. The Phoenix means rebirth by fire. Change. Just for your information.

10.15.2019.16.56.48

(September 29, 2021)—’A Talk of Sheik’ is written and formatted exactly as I heard it. The following Scriptures (Acts 17:1-4-18:8-11) were given after I finished writing what He was saying.

Teaching in ThessalonicaWhen they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue. As his custom was,  Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, explaining and proving that the Christ had to suffer and rise from the dead. ‘This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ,’ he said. Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a large number of God-fearing Greeks and not a few prominent women.—Acts 17:1-4 (Thessalonica)

Attack On Jason’s HouseBut the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason’s house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd. But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some other brothers before the city officials, shouting: ‘These men who have caused trouble all over the world have now come here, and Jason has welcomed them into his house. They are all defying Caesar’s decrees, saying that there is another king, one called Jesus.’ When they heard this, the crowd and the city officials were thrown into turmoil. Then they made Jason and the others post bond and let them go.—Acts 17:5-9

‘Indecent Dressings’ (Jesus)

‘Indecent Dressings’ (Jesus)…Forgive HIM and move on. Accept that it happened. You can’t change it. But you can change who you are. You can change from hate to love, from blame to forgiveness. Not forgiveness of man, forgiveness of God. Forgive HIM! Until you forgive God, you will continue your hate wars, your race wars. As long as you continue those, you don’t know God so don’t say you know Jesus. Amen.

Indecent Dressings

You’re putting a bandage on the wrong things. The wounds are too deep. Patches only lead to more wounds. Deeper wounds, shallow wounds…all still wounds.

In order to heal you must look deep. You must go all the way back. It is the same with persons, and with nations. The more you put on top of old wounds, the harder the healing becomes.

Nations must be destroyed after a time for the wounds are too deep to heal. The people are unwilling to forgive. They are unwilling to put the past behind them because they are simple, stiff-necked and want to fit into the collection.

My Father made each person unique. What lies beneath the skin is what matters to Him. A test…all is a test. Your skin is a certain color, that doesn’t mean you are the same and fit into the collection made by a color. It is simple-minded people who think this way.

You must separate yourself from all people to see truth.

I am the Christ written about second, spoken about first, then seen last. When they spoke of Me and then wrote about Me, they believed in Me. When they saw Me in the flesh, with a colorful skin, they did not believe.

Why do you persecute because of skin? Is it not the Father who disciplines? Is it not the Father who enslaves people? Why do you think man is in charge? Is it not the Father who sets rulers above nations? Is it not the Father who removes these same rulers? How can you know Me when you don’t know My Father?

‘What Is It?’ (Jesus)

‘What Is It?’ (Jesus)…Referring to what He says below about Satan, I said, ‘I did that. I called Satan an evil whore.’ Jesus said, ‘I fixed you!’

What Is It? (Jesus)

listen to the sound
shh...listen close
quiet all noise
listen carefully

what do you hear

are your thoughts getting in the way
are the hum of machines
distracting you
are you fidgeting, restless
do you want to come unglued

is the silence
too much of a view

listen to the sound
keep listening
it comes from far away
traveling with the light
so you can hear

but first
you have to listen


it's what they call
the spiritually
the freedom
to be everywhere
to help 
without intruding
to comfort
without disrupting

it's moving
without getting in the way

you can start to hear
it becomes very clear
then
tends to disappear

it doesn't disappear

too much comes in
when you try to listen
with too much collision

you must simplify
for the clear
to return
what you've grown fond of
what becomes sincere
you now yearn


it is because
you've tasted the kingdom
you've experienced its peace
it put you at ease
each and every time

I† could talk all day
I† do
I† can send these words
‒these lessons
all day long
I† do
I† could even appear
announce that I'm† alive
tell you that I† am Jesus†
the Son† of  God†
I could stand right in front of you
hold your hands
kiss your forehead

you wouldn't believe
for it is not time

My† true sheep
they do not need time
they have always been Mine†

the rest belong to God†
He† does with them
as He† deems fit

some are condemned
some are saved
He† leaves it to them
they have the choice
they have until the moment
their body is no more

but they never know
when that time will come

they gamble on their own life
for nonsense reasons

their hearts are broken
they do not know how to fix it
they just get too hard, too soft
they need help from My† sheep
our Father's† call: Heal

time is time
times does not move in the kingdom
only on earth
instead of using this time wisely
it is wasted on hate and anger

the body dies
every body dies
the spirit moves up or down
it is better up than down
but it is a choice

it is your time to chose
things are changing
for they are deemed to change

—says the Lord Jesus Christ

Notes: The photograph chosen is from the set taken on September 27, 2019: Love from Heaven. I named it Love from Heaven because this was the day that the Lord eased my heart after so much He had told me to write down, so much He had revealed to me in visions and dreams. I needed help and there was no one to help me openly receive all that I was given. There was no way, after God and Jesus both answered me and proved it was indeed them I was talking to, that I was going to deny them. No way. I’d rather be ignored by the world then to ignore my Lord.

(September 17, 2021)—‘Open the Book,’ came after I finished receiving ‘What Is It?’. The Scripture amazes me every time. What I’m hearing compared to the Scripture I’m directed to is accurate every time.

Again the message of Mercy!

‘Adaptable Indifference’ (Jesus)

‘Adaptable Indifference’ (Jesus)…Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.’

Adaptable Indifference (Jesus)

why do you not touch My† words
do you not know
they are true and just

what is in this unbelief
that just because I've† chosen a woman
you prowl yourself away
ignoring because of her

don't you see
this is the very reason I† chose her
she wrote about abuse
no one was listening
how far is it to write for Me†

you don't stand up for those abused
no one stood up for her
no one stood up for Me† either
it's God's† will
testing a person's heart
will you give to that person
will you stand up for this person
will you help mend that person
will you endure and save this person

as I† demonstrate through My† prophet's life
people run at the first sight of strife
this isn't what the Father† calls for
He† has shown through the prophet
now I† tell you as well

strife test the most
it's fire
and many can't take the heat
it is that heat which pushes the hardest
gets under your skin
digs in deep
it wants you to give up
it wants you to walk away
it pushes and pulls
tearing at your very heart
making you the fool
to the outside...the collection

but it is the inside that matters
that push and pull
strife or the collection

'what will you do'

the easy answer comes easy
the hard answer comes hard
the harder the answer
the more confusion comes in
mixing the boiling pot
the heart carries the truth
listen
it is not always what you want
to hear
but it is the truth

the road to the kingdom
will not be the easy road
trust inside instead of out

—says the Lord Jesus† the Christ†
the first Son†
of the one, true living God†

Matthew (Levi) Is CalledOnce again Jesus went out beside the lake. A large crowd came to Him, and He began to teach them. As He walked along, He saw Levi son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax collector’s booth. ‘Follow Me,’ Jesus told him, and Levi got up and followed Him.—Matthew 9:9; Mark 2:13-14; Luke 5:27,28 (Galilee)

Eating with Sinners—[Luke] Then Levi held a great banquet for Jesus at his house, and a large crowd of tax collectors and others were eating with them. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law who belonged to their sect complained to His disciples, ‘Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and ‘sinners’?’ On hearing this, Jesus said, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.’—Matthew 9:10-13; Mark 2:15-17; Luke 5:29-32

Disciples Not FastingThey said to Him, ‘John’s disciples often fast and pray, and so do the disciples of the Pharisees, but Yours go on eating and drinking.’ Jesus answered, ‘Can you make the guests of the bridegroom fast while He is with them? But the time will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them; in those days they will fast.’ He told them this parable: ‘No one tears a patch from a new garment and sews it on an old one. If he does, he will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the new wine will burst the skins, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins. And no one after drinking old wine wants the new, for he says, ‘The old is better.”—Matthew 9:14-14; Mark 2:18-22; Luke 5:33-39
