    Thank you very inspiring word for Jacob and Esau In this story it teaches us that, God sees inside of a men and not outside. The inner part is GOD most concerned about. So He makes his own decision regarding inner man.Thank You!

    This is a great message of our Lord, so we can not be in straggle at all in this 2016. the promises of his comfort "which is in the Holy Ghost," and is sent by the Father in his name, even this will help us to remember and to teach everything that he is telling us, and as he said in verse 27. "Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."

    Yes , Jesus did go : He was and is Triumph over death , hell , and ,the grave : Because He triumphed , I am more than a conqueror through Him : what I do here with my Lord God and Father and Jesus Christ, I will have in heaven. So : Work on and get that mansion : don't want a cabin !!! He is coming back to get me : He will not leave me behind.
