    God will never leave you or forsake you!

    Brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus, who are His church: See here in verses 1 through 11 that while the members of the church of Christ will suffer tribulations, the body of Christ will NOT be appointed to the wrath of Great tribulation of hell when all flesh will die of famine, war, pestilence and captivity. Let no man carrying that spirit of antichrist deceive you with their vain words: JESUS CHRIST is the SAVIOUR, that is true! His sacrifice and His blood is sufficient atonement for all our sins so there is no cause for the faithful to be "delivered up"! Be blessed and rejoice in the saving grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen
  • Eric

    I love God so much, and I'm very grateful that he did not leave us in this world of sin. God's love for us gave us a way to escape from sin and have eternal life. Father, thanks for our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Thanks, for your "Grace" that sufficient for all our sins. The greater our "Faith" the more we receive with humbleness, the meek shall inherited the world.
  • Abraham

    Paul is letting us know that even though, Adam failed and plunch the world into sin because of his disobedience, Jesus came and died to save the world. Only He was worthy. For we all have sin and come short of his glory. Thank God for Jesus his son.
