    These men of God had a burning message of God pouring out to the lost but sorely rejected and persecuted were they till we can hear Paul's soul searching heart define his and their own intent for preaching so earnestly under the de rest of persecution. The warfare become evident they were not wrestling with flesh and blood but with spiritual wickness in places which had the unbelievers carnal.

    Praise God for his work of faith and labour of love and also what his son has done BY delivering us from the wrath to come. Let us love each other In God being thankful to God for everything, meditating on that which is good, praying and wishing each other Godly grace and peace as we are Gods true representatives and as such we must turn to God from our idols. We must serve the living and true God

    Bitrus, the LORD Jesus is most definitely the Saviour of the world. He was found spotless, blameless, yet He knew no sin, but bore the sins of the world in His body. His betrayel turned into our blessing and He did it for us. Salvation is only a prayer away. Confess the LORD Jesus and believe in thine heart God raised Him from the dead, Romans 10:8. Also read Ephesians 2:8-9. God bless you!!!

    its amazing how the God seed lineage planted in genesis has been redeemed and confirmed back to the very image of God again perfectly for God to be glorified in them visa-vie the seed of the devil continuing to force their way to ever lasting destruction.
