Woke up this morning about 3:30
And as I lay there in a slumbering state trying to recall what time I went to bed last night so I could count the number of hours of sleep . . .
Ideas were coming to mind . . .
Get thee up, Mark.
I’ve got something for you to do for me this morning, boy.
“Go Tell It on a Mountain”
“I Will sing of the Goodness of God”
The gospel of John chapter 6
So, I got up and went to the refrigerator and got out a bottle of filtered water;
But, then, it seemed I should go to the computer even before breakfast and write;
So, her I am, I mean here I am typing these words.

“At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, ‘Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.
“Woe to the world for temptations to sin! For it is necessary that temptations come, but woe to the one by whom the temptation comes! And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life crippled or lame than with two hands or two feet to be thrown into the eternal fire. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into the hell of fire.” -Matthew 18:1-9.

“I will utterly sweep away everything from the face of the earth,” declares the LORD.
“I will sweep away man and beast;
I will sweep away the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea,
And the rubble with the wicked.
I will cut off mankind
From the face of the earth,” declares the LORD.
“I will stretch out my hand against Judah
And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
And I will cut off from this place the remnant of Baal
And the name of the idolatrous priests along with the priests,
Those who bow down on the roofs
To the hosts of the heavens,
Those who bow down and swear to the LORD
And yet swear by Milcom,
Those who have turned back from following the LORD,
Who do not seek the LORD or inquire of him.
“Be silent before the LORD GOD!
For the day of the LORD is near;
The LORD has prepared a sacrifice
And consecrated his guests.
And on the day of the LORD’S sacrifice –
“I will punish the officials and the king’s sons
And all who array themselves in foreign attire.
On that day I will punish
Everyone who leaps over the threshold,
And those who fill their master’s house
With violence and fraud.” -Zephaniah 1:1-9 ESV Study Bible.

“And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites. For they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by others. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward. But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him. Pray then like this: ‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.” -Matthew 6:5-15.

All of your thoughts are great as far as they go, Mark. Indeed, we must be as little children. However, the message for this time is found in Rev.14:6-14:12. This is called the THREE ANGELS MESSAGES. In Daniel, we find this:Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Dan 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. Notice the time of trouble! This happens just before Jesus returns.You can find a description of that time from Rev. 8:1 onward to Rev:9:25. You see, my fellow believer, God means exactly what He says. Faith in Jesus must be able to endure hardship, privation and suffering.Why, you say? Simple. What do you think the Son of God suffered before the cross and during the crucifiction? In the garden of Gethsemane, we read He sweated great drops of blood. He begged the Father to take the cup (of self denial) away if possible. Jesus was never wealthy, and in the years of His public ministry, he had no home. I’m certain you have read where
He says the servant is not greater than his lord. He suffered, and so shall we. It is needful because we do not see our sinful nature in its entirety. I will be bold and encourage you to read or listen to Early Writings. A lot you may not understand will be opened to your mind in those pages.

My apologies,sir. The book is called the Great Controversy, not Early Writings:https://ellenwhiteaudio.org/great-controversy/
