    The word of God is true and should not be taken for granted...it's like a mirror that shows you exactly how you look...you must find areas of your life that needs to be adjusted after going through this particular passage. excuses aren't necessary nor helpful, just ask for God's mercy and grace and turn around for good. You will be happier. God's faithful.

    Saints of God be strong and endure through these perilous times: We DONNOT think it strange when fiery trials come against us for we are children of the Most High God..Let our light shine unto those who are still in darkness so perhaps they too may see and come to Jesus; Amen

    Peace has been taken from the world through the sin of iniquity and the love of so many people are wax cold as jesus said it would be,
    anytime God is taken out of the world you can look for sin to self destruct in a persons life .
