    Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. ( WOW! Paul use a military phrase 'stand fast'... 'stand fast' in 2017 is still a military phrase... in this war it mean do not move, hold your position, the victory is won through the Blood of the Lamb and the Bride Groom is on his way... 'stand fast' WOW!

    Isn't that a beautiful verse? Thank-you for sharing it with me and anyone else that sees it. I knew about Num. 6:24-27, and I've seen this one, but it didn't register for some reason. Have a good day, Bro. Dan ........
