    Reading your previous comment, that the 3 rd person in the trinity actually moved on Gods servants. His apostles tell us of this mystery. Their witness is a witness for us to believe in and that it would become real to each of us. I really enjoy reading king James version. I've read this version my whole life, and it still reveals something new of God everyday. Thank you for the revelation Peter

    You cannot believe in evolution and Creation.......... If the world exists more than a billion years, we will find in every place a lot of bones, skulls etc. etc.. Men always like to show of to others how much they know, but the more we think we know, the more we realize we don't know and the best is still to come when Jesus returns and has to show us again what matters....Love the Lord, your neighbour as yourself, we still not succeed in doing so , so we look for other ways to fill up the emptiness! At the moment we destroy creation, because satan knows that he has very little time to do so and his servants are already working very hard, but in the end they will not win, because our Saviour will return in time to save us from the madness and then we will realize how foolish we have been in not wanting to know the most important thing in life......to Love!!

    "Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, according as His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him..." Knowledge is power when we rightly act upon it. We never need be overcome by temptations. When we speak and act according to the truth, and stand on the Word, we cannot fail!

    ray: Back up to Matthew when The Persecution and Tribulation started. Paul was a Hitler of that Day! Until he meant the Lord:Acts9:1-5/---we must through much Tribulation enter into The Kingdom of God. Acts14:22 The Sixth Seal is opened and The Day of Wrath has come(upon the lost: Revelation6:12-17/ whosoever was not found written in The Book of Life was cast into The Lake of Fire.Revelation20:15
  • Ray321
    Hebrews through Revelation is for tribulation reading. If we miss the Rapture, then the books of Hebrews through Revelation will come to pass. We can learn from these books, but we must be careful who is it written to. Food for thought. ...
