    Inspite of how dangerous a time we are living in, the word of God becomes necessary to teach and preach and we must be made aware of it importance, regardless of the oppositions. Let us see it as the voice of God speaking to us, and not the voice of man. We are God mouthpiece to evangelize the world with the living anointed word of God. Just as he used Paul to instruct young Timothy.

    Darlene, you are so right! The light is fading fast in the world, but ever growing in the true child of God. It is no wonder the world hates us so!

    We must understand that in no wise anyone that refrain from the truth can be considered a product of righteousness for many have said Lord Lord and have been rejected. Let no one be under the understanding that God is not in control for all things are known of him whether disobedience or ungodlyness, therefore may all be confident that He will deliver His people. In the abundance of HIs love let us draw even closer to Him.

    Timothy chapter 3 is all true. And there are so many children going up against their parents. A d the Bible speaks of honoring your parents, especially your mother. I am not where I need to be, but I am not where I used to be. By the Loving Grace of my God I will get to be with Him in Heaven end when my time comes. And I know that God is getting tired of the way His children are acting. We all need to Pray for eachother and our country. And please let people know about God, and please love your parents.
