    God is struggling for our unbelief . Many people misleading the church and using the church for money today only few pastors who are the father in Christ are truly anointed. Jesus is only looking for our obedience to his words. We must be born again in spirit. Our prayers today must not pleading like an old prayers instead praising Jesus and thanked his blood everyday Bcoz he lives we also live

    M-While ones clothes really are a minor issue from one angle on another how one dresses does in a lot of cases mirror ones spiritual depth. Granted whether or not one wears a suit or tie or perfectly does their hair is of very small importance and if that is somthing that consumes on then perhaps a look at why should be in place. On the other hand if one continually dresses in a manner which does not conform to what God has commanded For Modesty it is a clear indication that this person is spiritually imature. If somone is a born again believer and years later still continues to dress in a manner contrary to the laws of God, violating the standards of modesty God has laid up, then a clear sign is given that they are strugling to grow in Christ properly. That to say if ones heart it truly right with God then their dress and clothing standard will comply with what God has laid out clearly in his word. A truly Christlike individual will be striving to comply with the standards set forth in Gods word.
