...If your leaders say to you,
'Look, the (Father's) kingdom is in the sky,'
then the birds of the sky will precede you.
If they say to you,
'It is in the sea,'
then the fish will precede you.
Rather, the kingdom is within you and it is outside you....
...Split a piece of wood; I am there.
Lift up the stone, and you will find me there.
