    Love Psalms. It is very enlightening.
  • Mr.Smith
    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.

    To C. Jones - Ps.1:2 - but his delight is in the LAW of the Lord. Also Deut. 11:27, 28; Jn. 14:15; 15:1; 1 Jn. 5:3. What is your opinion of why God gave us His word - the Bible ..... ?

    I am called Evangelist and to live a God filled life. He has protected, provided and leads me in my daily life. I continue to study and desire to do his will. My hope has been to be happily married, but what good is a pretty face if no one loves you. I Thank God for Blessing me with my son and grandchildren, even though I have sinned and fail short, He is The forgiving God and found place for me

    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,"
  • Lilian

Thanks to the blood Lord i will praise you and worship you alone. I will trust your will and your promises Amen
