Look not to the blood in a shoe but to THE BLOOD OF CHRIST and THE BLOOD OF THE NEW COVENANT and to God the Judge of all, to the souls of just men made perfect, and Jesus, the Mediator of better promises. (Heb 13:8; Heb 8:6)
Look to the cross and the Savior whose BLOOD EVER LIVETH to make intercession. (Heb 7:25) Look to the Word of Life, to the River of Living Water, to the Fountain that will never run dry. Look to the Lamb and not the blood of bulls and goats. (Heb 10:4) Look to the Brazen Altar and not those who have sacrificed themselves for personal gain.
Look to the Temple of God, given to men, and not the walls men have erected. They can't see over the very obstacle they have built. Look not to their delusions or deceptions or denials but look to THE WAY, THE TRUTH, and THE LIFE. For no one can come to the Father except through THE BLOOD OF CHRIST. (Jn 14:6) All other ways of entrance are those of the thief and liar. (Jn 10:1)
Look not at the tares. (Mt 13:36) You expect them to be unsightly but most often, they appear to shine like gold. Look not at where the devil has walked nor what shoes he puts on his feet. Look to the Pathmaker and the Waymaker and the Maker of All Things. Look to where MY FEET HAVE TROD and FOLLOW ME. (Mt 16:24) Look not to sin for a season but look for MY CELEBRATION. (Heb 11:25)
Look to giving prayers unceasing. Look to rejoicing evermore. (1Th 5:16-17) Look to mercy. Love those who've fallen along the way. Take them in and care for them. (Lk 10:33) Take MY YOKE upon you and carry MY LIGHT into the world. (Mt 11:30; Mt 5:14)
Look not to the White House or to any other government house. Look to MY HOUSE. Look to the heavenly city and pearly gates and streets of real gold. Look to being a good and faithful servant. Look to Me and hear Me say, "Well done." (Mt 25:21) For my reward is in My hand, and behold, I come quickly. Look to MY RETURN. (Is 40:10; Rev 3:11) And until then, look to MY VICTORY, to MY RESURRECTION, to MY TRIUMPH. (Col 2:15)
Look to MY THRONE. Look and listen. Hear MY VOICE and look to obedience. (Jn 10:27) Look to MY WORDS and not your own. Look to faith and patience and humility. Look to bearing fruit. Imitate Christ. Be like Christ. (1Cor 11:1) Look to righteousness and justice, snatching some from the flames. (Jude 1:23)
Look not on the outward appearance, on what a man may wear, but look at the heart. Look and see and taste, for I am good and My mercy endureth forever. (1Sam 16:7; Ps 34:8)
Look not at the earthly except for to see it for what it is, temporal. (2Co 4:8) Look not at the enemy's work except to refuse it a place in you. (Eph 4:27) Look to ME and STAND for Me and SPEAK UP for Me in all boldness, stretching forth My hand to heal. (Act 4:29-30) But know, I AM WELL ABLE to deliver you. I need no defense except what MY BLOOD HAS BOUGHT already.
Look to Me and be saved. LOOK long and hard and diligently AND LIVE.
“So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that LOOK FOR HIM shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”(Heb 9:28)
