    For GOD's children, being offered the opportunity to walk in holiness, is a beautiful thing. Satan, a cast out foe, wants us to act barbaric and lose everything, like him. Saint's take up the offer of repentance, and live. Later Devil!

    God reminded us to diligently seek him and turn away from evil. Only by accepting Jesus as the Rock of our salvation we will be save. We must thanked the blood of Jesus think his blood and talk about his blood. Praise him only for he is worthy amen

    This verse shows that God is willing to forgive if His people decide to turn their lives around and follow him. God's forgiveness is dependent upon our true repentance.

    Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that comes out from the mouth of God. Seek ye the Kingdom of God first and everything will be added unto you. Jesus and his words is our life. Without obeying his words its impossible to please Jesus and to have faith from him. Prayers are vital but praising and worshipping God are more important to meditate . Thanks to the blood of Jesus amen
