    There is No Remission for Sin Without The Blood of The Lamb(Hebrews 9:11-28) Washed by The Blood(Revelation1-5)Then You are Clean Enough for The Holy Ghost to Move in(Mark 1:8) You Will be Changed(2 Corinthians 5:17) Impossible Not to Know. You Will Tell Others what Christ has Done in Your Life and How They Can be Saved. Without The Call of The Father Impossible( John 6:44) A Tug on Your Heart

Those who disbelieves are in for a shock the day Jesus comes back God rids the evil throws it all back into hell. I just hope my feet are clean enough to walk across th e golden streets of glory.
