    Brethren in the Lord; compare 1 Kings 22:19-23: there was a scene and words spoken, which some of us may soon be able to identify with. I've never understood Jehoshaphat's readiness or ease in sitting with Ahab. We might also wonder at who will be misled to sit with the wicked; while the real servants of God are brought in to speak the truth, but shall only be rebuked, and after cast into prison.

Above all , be a DOER of God's word !

    "For such a time as this". In this day that we are in I think it is critical that THE CHURCH get back to the sound doctrine that is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and stand on it. Sin is Sin no matter what title we or the world wants to put on it, as is evil. It is TIME that The People of GOD stand and be accounted. It is sad that as we look at the church there is not a noticeable difference between it and the world.

    The falling away is the great apostacy! Satan comes as a false messiah with flattery and prosperity for all who will be deceived. Why the world will say it's the Lamb of God his powers bringing lightning from the sky and he speaks with such great political power bringing peace to the world what a great religious and godly being it is the Son of God return. It's a false peace and deception SO WAIT

    Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And they fell upon their faces, and said, O God, the God of the spirits of all flesh, shall one man sin, and wilt thou be wroth with all the congregation? O thou that hearest prayer, unto thee shall all flesh come. My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me? Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation. These words spake Jesus, and lifted up his eyes to heaven, and said, I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me for they are thine. While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition that the scripture might be fulfilled. And all flesh shall see the salvation of God. And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.
