Who will go for Us?I said:Here I am. Send me.

and their evil deeds.

Look, I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads. I have made your forehead like a diamond, harder than flint. Don’t be afraid of them or discouraged by the look on their faces, even though they are a rebellious house.” Next He said to me: “Son of man, listen carefully to all My words that I speak to you and take them to heart.

and your young men will see visions. I will even pour out My Spirit

They inquired into what time or what circumstances the Spirit of Christ within them was indicating when He testified in advance to the messianic sufferings and the glories that would follow. It was revealed to them that they were not serving themselves but you. These things have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Angels desire to look into these things.
