into a world like this

"Into a world like this the sound of Jesus' words comes wonderful and strange, a visitation from above.  It is well that He spoke, for no one else could have done it as well; and it is good that we listen.  His words are the essence of truth.  He is not offering an opinion; Jesus never uttered opinions.  He never guessed; He knew, and He knows.  His words are not as Solomon's were, the sum of sound wisdom or the results of keen observation.  He spoke out of the fulness of His Godhead, and His words are very Truth itself.  He is the only one who could say 'blessed' with complete authority, for He is the Blessed One come from the world above to confer blessedness upon mankind.  And His words were supported by deeds mightier than any performed on this earth by any other man.  It is wisdom for us to listen."

– AW Tozer, The Pursuit of God, 110-111.
