Jesus the Christ speaking:
"Knowing the correct password—saying 'Master, Master,' for instance— isn't going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience—doing what my Father wills. I can see it now—at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, 'Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.' And do you know what I am going to say? 'You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don't impress me one bit. You're out of here." Matthew 7:21-23 (The Message)


If you're like me, you encounter CAPTCHA a lot when you submit questions or comments to websites or sign-up to join lists on the Web.

The term CAPTCHA stands for "Completely Automated Public Turing Test To Tell Computers and Humans Apart."

For those who are unfamiliar with this, CAPTCHA is a program that protects websites against Internet robots (also known as bots) by generating and grading tests that humans can pass but current computer programs cannot.

For example, humans can read distorted text as the one shown below, but current computer programs can't:


A few days ago the Holy Spirit spoke to me about CAPTCHA.

The Spirit said that Jesus is CAPTCHA.

Like computers pretending to be people to gain access to a Web site, there are people pretending to be disciples of Jesus to gain access to the Kingdom of God.

But just as CAPTCHA does not let the computer data enter into a website, so will Jesus not let those who are not His, enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Hi David,
It's an analogy of the Holy Ghost!
