The Revelation of the Mind:
Must follow these Scriptures and teachings in order to see the progression of FAITH. Upon Andrew finding Simon, he proclaimed that he had found the Messiah which is the Christ. This is in John 1:41. Then Andrew brought Simon to our Lord Jesus Christ and I want us to see the words spoken by our Lord. Remember these words because we will see them again.
Joh 1:41-42 (ESV) He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). 42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter).
Basically, our Lord knew that Simon's revelation was only that of the mind. Jesus said.. "You are, but you shall become." This is the call to us as we first realized that there was a man called Jesus the Christ, the Messiah. "We are, but we shall become."
