    Oh thank You LORD, our God our Father! In Christ Jesus we are SAVED! Father, bless all as you will, specially those who labour for You LORD God in truth and righteousness. CHRIST is come in the flesh as His Spirit is in us! Bless our Saviour as Righteousness is of Him! Amen. Psalms 118:20 This gate of the LORD, into which the righteous shall enter. 21 I will praise thee: for thou hast heard me, and art become my salvation. 22 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
