    God is longing to bless us and heal us. Jesus already restores our Soul and have forgiven our sins when Jesus redeemed us on the cross. But sometimes because of our disobedience we are chastened. When the storm comes into our life we dont know what to do if we dont have Christ in our life. Jesus is the only Savior, He who opens his door for him will be saved. We must show our obedience to his words in order for us to see the Glory of God as his mercy and love endureth forever. What a promising God and always faithful to his words. Thanks to Jesus and keep praising his blood as his precious blood washed our ungodly sins. Praise you Lord and thanks for your blood i will love you Jesus forever until rapture. Amen
  • Michael Babarinde for verse 2
    Hebrews 12:2 KJV 'looking the act of directing the eyes to something and perceiving it visual ly. unto Jesus ...... ' is the blessedness of mourning.
  • Judy
    V6 to me means that when we sin intentionally or unintentionally, God withdraws His grace from us for a season, so that we know we cannot do without Him. This leads to repentance and a renewed desire for His word, prayer and holy living that His holy name may once again be glorified in our lives. Woe to you whose sins go unpunished know it I not well with you. Later a recompense shall be made.
  • Isabella for verse 14
    holiness is a lifestyle which differs dramatically from our mannerof life before we were saved.
