Keeping Our Eyes on Jesus
Author requests article critique
The story of Peter walking on water is a good lesson about keeping our eyes on Jesus. The story begins with Jesus walking on the sea. Matthew 14: 25-31:
And in the fourth watch of the night, Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea. And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, it is a spirit; and they cried out in fear. But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. And Peter answered Him and said, Lord, if it be thou; bid me come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come, and when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me. And immediately Jesus stretched froth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?
I can picture Peter in my mind walking on the water, and keeping his eyes fixed on Jesus. Remember the disciples were in a boat in the middle of a raging storm and the waves were probably rising higher and higher. Peter was concentrating more on the power of the storm than the power of Jesus, and cries out to be saved.
How many times have we had trials and tribulations and at first we keep our eyes on Jesus, but then the distractions of the world set in, and we feel like we are drowning in our problems?
What is the best way to keep our eyes on Jesus? Having a strong relationship with Jesus and realizing the fact that He dwells within you. Through His power you can accomplish anything. Reading and meditating on the Bible allow us to not only learn more about Jesus, but to also keep our eyes on Him and remember His words when we face trials and tribulations.

Your article is key at this time--in my opinion.
Due to the media blitz on the falsification of the story about the 'boy that went to heaven,' Satan is on his job.
Jesus and His truth is under attack. Nevertheless, I am sure around the world, others like myself have seen heaven.
Therefore, HEAVEN IS REAL. Thus, SO IS HELL. And there is nothing that Satan can do about it.
Keeping ones eye on Jesus and His Word keeps believers on track. Jesus said the victory is won. Period. That settles it.
