    To Dimitri: I believe the Word of God, so I will give you scriptures to prove, that what God said is true. I have studied God's Word for over 50 yrs since I was Saved. If you do not believe the Bible. Do NOT respond back. I will not argue with you. Your body is dead (asleep), To be resurrected in the last day. Colossians 3:3,7 - I Thessalonians 4:13-18 There are so many more scriptures.

    Only through our OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S WORDS WE WILL MADE WHOLE. The Paralized man was not healed when Jesus came He was healed the moment he obeyed what Jesus told him to do. When we deligently seeking God and obey his words we are releasing our Faith. Jesus made everything new its time for us to THANKED HIS BLOOD AND PRAISE HIM AND FOLLOW HIM TILL RAPTURE. I love you and trust u Jesus
