    For God is love and his words is our life. Jesus is faithful for those who are diligently seeking him He will pour out his knowledge and will help us to understand his words. I believe the bible was provided for us to believe not to figure out. John1.1 In the beginning there was a word and the word was with God and the word was God. Amen how loving Jesus for giving his blood and life for us.
