    Abba Father have given all power into Jesus hands heaven and earth. Thank you Jesus for the blood you shed for us you are my life Lord my Rock and my Salvation Jehova Jireh the Lord my Provider Shalom i will praise you Jesus i love you Lord forever amen

    Fred; no one is looking for arguing about doctrine; but when we have been given something from the Lord, it is for the benefit of the whole assembly, and it is our duty in love and faithfulness to reprove, rebuke, correct, instruct, exhort one another in the Spirit of the truth; for the end of all things is at hand!

Do unto others as you would have done to u
