    Verse 5: we must rejoice powerfully, for the God of all is our is the husband of our church and us. Careful fellow Christians, go out and find a true church, without a false proselytizer. God has overcome Satan on earth so use critical thought with our gospel (Isaiah) to uncover the false ones. I pray you may raise your hands and voice in one of God's churches! I love you! Kurt.
