    There are no words for the word of GOD, and the beauty of 2 Corinthian:3. The Saints, must set an example, and be a true example for the body of Christ. We must continue to walk in love, peace, joy, and happiness, and hope to rescue others from darkness in the world for our Lord and Savior KING JESUS!

    What a glorious God we have. Thank you Jesus foor your precious blood. O halleluja we are justified by the blood of Christ. Thank You Jesus for Your blood that speaketh of better things than the blood of Abel. Thank You Lord that you have delivered us from the law of Moses by Your death. Halleluja, we are delivered from the law by the Body of Christ. Holy Spirit, we are led by You.

    Many misunderstand this, because they read it alone, not with other scriptures. The Law was set in stone and was death in that there was no forgiveness in it! But when the spirit of Christ came on and in the heart of men in the new testament, it brought (the vail removed) life, as it forgave and took away all the guilt and shame of the sin. The Law is still there, but death is conquered by Grace!
