Calisto Otieno Oriato's comment on 2014-08-10 01:06:14:

This is the verse i was preached to and i got salvation instantly. Amalgamated together with Jeremiah 29 11. Very powerful that every born again christian should crave to read.

That puts the matters to rest,sickness, poverty and calamities do not come from GOD. Every good and perfect gift comes from the FATHER. The devil roars like a lion seeking to fulfil his mission, that 's why Paul tells us not to be ignorant of his wiles. Watch and pray was the LORDS admotion, be encouraged HE is on our side.

I know of the voice of god because the work that he as done for my life is prof. He took me out of the dark and put the light in me and made me a new person that is the God of all things so to know god is to believe in is work and the work is me. thank you father for shining on me and keeping your hand on my life.Amen

We have to be very careful because the enemy really wants to trap many people and let them go to hell fire so it is vital for us to look up to God for he came to give us abundant life

No matter what the thief might have stolen,destroy in your life,if you still have your life and know God,HE will give you those good things that has been stolen more abundantly and the things that has been destroyed HE will build again if we will listen and appreciate HIM that when there is life,there is hope.I LOVE GOD!

 

Nessa's comment on 2013-08-12 14:28:35:

The thief cometh not, but to steal, kill, and destroy. Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. the word says watch and pray that you enter not into temptation. He also says my sheep hear my voice and shall not follow another voice. Sheep do know the different between God's voice and the enemies voice.
The bible says if we new the thief was coming we would be prepared. The way to be prepared is to watch and pray and Jesus will lead you. A good pray #1.The Our Father's #2.Psalms 23

 

Phil Van D's comment on 2013-07-28 22:25:14:

If the thief knew me then he would have an abundant life and would have no need or desire to do these things.

Jesus"s wish is for us to have a fulfilling and abundant life, but we can't get that if we don't come to him.

Fools, you are suppose to live my sight. Jesus gave sight to the blind. He said that those who say that they can see will be made blind, those who are blind will see.

That I/we were born in sin and save by Christ Jesus and given his mercy/grace fresh daily to live life abundantly after acceptance of Jesus as our Lord and Saviour to begin to walk in faith not by sight and thank god for being set free from the carnal world. In Christ Jesus, Debra White, Servant of the Lord
