    The Place of Christ is underlined thus: “when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come. And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church.”
  • A disciple
    Frank; We are in a time of increasing darkness and trouble, because so many that have heard and known the word of God have despised and rejected it; and love instead their cares and pleasures in this life, than to be of the truth. This is the narrow way that Jesus spoke of, and the very reason most choose to stay on the broad way because they are ashamed or afraid or simply love their sins more.
