It is best to know someone
first. Then approach with
wisdom knowing that none can come to the Creator unless
He opens their minds. Apart from that, just leave
them be. Consider Emmanuel's propheised example:.Isaiah
The contact the apostles
had with the unconverted
was by getting the message out to groups gathered in public. They had more
wisdom than spending time going
'door to door'. And, the groups that listened to what they had to say,

it that way yet?
So there is your answer to
'witnessing'. Then you can be sure Creator is opening their mind to be
made aware of His presence now at this time. Please read the scriptures
here one more time.

higher consciousness realm He came to reveal and out of the
ego realm where sin predominates.
What if nobody knew it? What
