  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Verily, Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. Love works no ill to his neighbor: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:

REPENT FIRST: THEN call on the Name of the LORD: and ye shall be saved.
