    Well, thank God for his precious son he sent down in the form of flesh, left his splendor above for us, because of the fall of Adams race, he so loved us his creation, what more can we want than to know our saviour is in glory pleading for us, father spear them one more day. Saints, we need to have a ready and made up mind to live for christ. God is able to keep us in his grace and truth.
  • Emerson
    Who could believe a little baby was born to a woman who had never "known" a man? Who could believe a person could walk on water? Who could believe a "man" could forgive sins? Who could believe a "man" would be willing to die for his ungrateful fellows? Who could believe a man died, and then came back to life the third day? Who could believe He ascended to Heaven without a rocket or a balloon? Who could believe He's coming back after two thousand years? I DO... AND GOD BLESS YOU, IF YOU DO! "Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed!"

    For those who do not understand "tongues", read 1Cor. chapters 12 and 14. Very clear. Also, the day of Pentecost will explain tongues.
