    God is the only one who owns the earth and those who live in it, as Christian we must not be afraid of anything or anyone. Let us keep on praying and not forgetting to pray for our enemies so that they can see the light. Really indeed through us our enemies wil be saved and see the power of God.

    The earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof...in other words God owns everything. But who can ascend to the hill? Meaning who can get in the presence of this great God...he who has clean hands and a pure heart...who does not seek out his own way...lifted up his soul to vanity. We must yield to God we must seek to keep ourselves pure and pleasing to God, then we receive the blessing. His favor
