    Love Psalms. It is very enlightening.

    Further revelation of truth. When we really understand the power of "Christ in us", we can live and operate in all the fullness of God. He created us in His image and likeness and has given us all His authority to rule and reign here on earth. Cassie, read Luke 17:20-21. The KOG is not somewhere you're "going to", it is already "inside" you if you have received Christ Jesus.

    My friends you cannot earn your way to Heaven by obeying or abiding in the will of God. We are sinners and we need a savior. Jesus died and rose again to give us eternal life and he promises that all who ask him for salvation will be saved.
    Acts 16:30 "And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?
    31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved,"
