    I know our beloved Almighty God a jealous God according to his massage on Jos. 23:16 that only Jesus Christ our God no one can bow any other Gods...I truly believe my only one I bow God is Jesus Christ is our savior, guidance and provider at all time we ask and knock him he will provide and openly as we liked. All trials we have now only Jesus can help us and will be solve ... "AMEN" ...........
  • Christ Magnified Glorifying Jesus
    Day 65 of Bible in a Year Reading. It is so interesting that as I read about the nation of Israel it is as if it is personified. Nothing new under the sun. Humankind is very fickle and paranoid when there is no faith.

    I do feel it's sad that churches are to be more to the spiritual aspect of GOD and his SON,but as we come to learn not every house is the same and not all are glorifying GOD,and the inquity of others will be on them individually but will be on the ones who lead them astray 2 they WILL have their blood on their hands,and I asure you NOONE will be LAUGHING,smiles will turn into tears and sorrow Amen

    Praise the Lord of whom all blessings flow. Praise him all creatures here below. Praise him all ye heavenly home. Praise Father Son and Holy 👻 Amen. God bless!!! He keeps on blessing me. He keeps on blessing me over and over again. The Lord Jesus Chris is awesome and mercyful. I wandered in the wilderness just like the children of Israel did for fourty years but thank God for his grace and mercy.

    Jane I don't think lying about our state is going to help people. The truth is always the best way. God himself said he had seen that the people were a stiffnecked people. What the Church needs is people willing to say the truth and warn others. Unfortunately this isn't happening and those that might be saved if they heard the warning are being told smooth things instead of the truth.
  • Jane
    At point of death Moses parting woods to Isreal was that he knew they will transgress because they are stiff necked , Jushua too has said same ..when ye have transgressed... So they transgressed. I feel our Pastors and parents should learn from this and prophesy positive even in the face of stubborness
