    As long as we are not becoming as a little child....we will not enter the Kingdom We are not even succeeding to Love one another, our enemies....The basic things Jesus tried to teach us , but we didn't want to obey....we want to do our own thing and first want to know hairsplitting things that are not so important at the moment, The most important things......to Love we don't even know anymore, we prefer to do the opposite..... Fools are we and we know the Peace that we want for the world will not come, until our Lord and Saviour comes back for a second time ........We get upset because we don't know if God creates everything?? How important is that?? We will know this when the time is there and we have first learnt what is the most important thing at this moment, while there's soo much hate around us and we're fooled by so-called pastors, preachers that are not even able to lead their flocks and are not preaching the Words of Jesus, but their own thoughts.... Let's try again to look at the Words of Jesus, the basic things that He thought us and try to start a pure relationship from our hearts with Him and then The Holy Spirit, our teacher that He left us, will teach us ALL THINGS!! If we're ready to receive it!!

    I have experienced much wickedness in helping others around me since my life was gifted back to me, an angel warned me about the feiry darts. It is hard to be nothing but forgiving sometimes without HIS help!

    Abel, Jennifer and Dewey, Yes, Christ is the firstborn of every creature therefore if any man is in Christ he is a new creation also 2 Cor. 5:17, the old lifestyle is gone so we must endeavor to live above reproach. Christ has His livestream in us to enable us live this new life to glorify God. Praise Jesus!
