    We must line up with the word of God! Or else we can not see the kingdom of God! God word is true!
  • GREVILLE G. LIBURD
    "....As personal, esoteric visions reveal life s foibles, So moral vision must then come from God, and not from human source, As human standards change, and are problematic to enforce. Or, tell me then, man s moral wisdom comes from whence?" What is the Source of Wisdom and Moral Judgement? "GOD KNOWS There is absolutely nothing that God does not know, Within every nook and cranny of this tainted earth below. And every star, and every heavenly acre, and every angel and heavenly host, And every whisper of Creation must honor the Holy Ghost. God is good, and His mercies endure forever, God is slow to wrath, more kindness He will deliver. God is gracious and kind and merciful, even in righteous anger His longsuffering shields earthly ingrates from danger. Shall man by searching find God? No, God is unsearchable, His absolute goodness is not carnally discernible. Can man find redemption through research or reason? No, Faith in Jesus Christ, God s Son is the only way to go. But this is not a task that Christ-less minds can do, It happens only when Christ s Spirit dwells within you."

    The entire Bible is profitable unto all that will read , hear and obey : God's word ,all of it . is profitable for doctrine ,for reproof , for correction and for instruction in His righteousness .It would profit me exceedingly to be a doer of God's word. I Praise God I have a copy of His word !!!

    We can only do our best to show the inspiration of God to the ninety nine percent that will deny His power due to their own will.
