    2 Corinthians 2: 9-10. But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit.

    It truly is the church epistle's that were written to all of us. Are all of us on the same page in the rightly divided Word of Truth ? I think not ! Believe and do what the Word says to do and always pray in the Holy Spirit Tongues. Spiritual warfare is come and the time is truly neigh at hand when our Heavenly Abba Dad will fully restore all things through Christ our Living Lord and Savior Amen.
