“What no eye has seen,1 Corinthians 2:9-10
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived—
the things God has prepared for those who love Him—
these are the things God has revealed to us by His Spirit.”
“Jesus said, ‘But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear’.”Matthew 13:16
