    in His reappearance as Christ, our God adds to these holy words something which was certainly missing before His presence between men, He said "and with your mind" these four corners of our "being" as a living sacrifice making then complete the Love of His Father implemented in Jesus which He transmit to all of us as the main mission to accomplish before dying on the cross, even He units two persons whom He loved the most, His mother and Johannes the evangelist...we should be one with Him to be to live like Him, God bless you all.Amen.

    This Chapter has presented the path to peace and prosperity for God's people on earth. It clearly states that God wants His people to live a good life, a life of plenty both materially and spiritually. However he has also made it clear that there are serious consequences if you choose not to obey His commands. Teaching our children to obey His word is also significant. God I love you!
