    1The Leaven is, Sin/5 Fear God/8 Tell Others what Christ has Done for You and How to be Saved by The Blood of The Lamb/10 Speaking Evil about The Spirit is Not Forgiving/18-34 No Need to Stockpile for Years to Come. Read The Bible, Pray, Tell Others what Christ has Done in Your Life. He Will Take Care of Our Needs.I have Not Seen The Righteous Forsaken Nor His Seed Begging for Bread (Psalm 37:25)

    Luke 12 appears to be almost like the 7 Commandments.Jesus is Instructing his disciples. He's speaking to them in parables say they can understand what he's trying to tell them.He's Prophesying of things to come.Some of them are already in force now.He is instructing his Disciples for us to follow too.He want us to be ready for The Rapture. He's kind of instructing us as a parent.
    I Luv Luke 12.
