    don't get too accustomed to this world. Jesus was just passing through and so are we! We get entangled with the "cares" of this life. we like to be comfortable, and there's nothing wrong with that, except you have to keep your eyes on the one that matters-Jesus and eternal life with Him.
  • Wild B He
    To be a disciple of his, hands on the plough, is to be in a battle against the forces of evil on earth. We are in a time of testing. The Truth is being obfuscated. The rule if law is ignored as the Antichrist, who blows his own horn that he is the best, has deceived even the very foremost Christians of our day, 5/9/19. They boost his credibility not knowing the severity of God, who sees all!

    Our Lord on the Mount-of-Transfiguration: God His Father said: This is My Beloved Son: Hear Ye Him! Mary at the Wedding in Cana: Whatever He sayeth: do it! Why are we claiming to be Followers of Jesus: but disobedient to His Commands: Jesus sayeth: To obey is Better than Sacrifice: I am preaching to the choir: We are upset with our children when they disobey our commands: obedience to God matters
