“He who is not with me is against me.”

“He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me
scattereth abroad.”
Bible, Matthew 12:30 King James Version


“And the angel of the Lord appeared to them in a flame of fire.”
Maxim Bruckner


Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law,
the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert,
and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb. And the
angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the
midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire,
and the bush was not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside,
and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when
the LORD saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him
out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he said,
Here am I. And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes
from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest
is holy ground. Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father,
the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.
And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God.
Bible, Exodus 3 King James Version
