    V. 2 - ".....when I lift up my hands ....."; We do this and during every service, at least once, I can feel the very slightest 'pressure' on my palms, especially when everyone is feeling His presence and praising Him. He wants us to be in 'unity' in our worship of Him, to have no divisions nor angers among us, to LOVE one another in the beauty of His Holiness.

    His presence, power and love,with the 'fear of the Lord'-safe in Him. But first we must be born into His kingdom, not by church tradition, but by being doers of the word. By 'water and spirit'- which is the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord
    "Repent(death) and be baptized(burial) every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and gift of Holy Ghost(resurrection)"
