    HEB 12:2 -- "...........WHO FOR THE JOY SET BEFORE HIM ENDURED THE CROSS............." The 'joy' .....; can you imagine!? Nor was it His personal joy He was thinking of, but His joy in OUR salvation when we followed Him in Acts 2:38. He went thru this for us, not for Himself.

    The Kingdom we receive is inside us when God grants us piece, and if he has delivered us from evil through prayer in secret then we must remember to honour our loving God the Father so that we are never in the hands of the enemy, it would be foolish not to fear God who can do such amazing things for us. What an amazing big God he is.
