    The Us and Our is the Godhead, mentioned 3 times in the KJV Bible. Acts 17:29 - Romans 1:20 - Colossians 2:9. John 5:7 The Father, The Word, and the Holy Ghost.
  • Believer
    Understand the true sabbath. "And the evening and the morning were the first day." and so it goes every day, the day ends in the morning. Also, Matthew 28:1 "In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre." Not a set day of the week as man has made it, but according to the moon. Luni-solar calendar.

    To be a Servant: You need to be Called: John 6:44. Ask Forgiveness, you will be Washed by The Blood of The Lamb:1John 1:9,Revelation 1:5. You will be Baptized with The Holy Ghost:Mark 1:8. You will be Changed,you will know:2Corinthians 5:17, Impossible not to. Then you will know in the Beginning God Created all. Whosoever is not in The Book of Life is Cast into The Lake of Fire: Revelation 20;15
  • A disciple
    God is from everlasting to everlasting, with neither beginning of days nor end of life; who inhabits eternity, and is LORD of all time, and all that is! The Scripture Account of Creation is literal; and needs no human acceptance or apology! "In the beginning" simply means, concerning the heavens and the earth and everything in them. God created the heavens and the earth in six days, and rested.
  • Servant of God
    In the beginning was God and the beginning wasn't 6000 years ago for God is eternal, and God wasn't created. Man didn't wash up on shore intact but evolved for there is forensic evidence to support such. Does that make God null and void.? God is Spirit, an altogether different dimension. However we came to be who we are doesn't matter for we are to bend to God's will if we want peace, period

    ACTS 1:1 THE FORMER TREATISE HAVE I MADE O THEOPHILUS OF ALL THAT JESUS BEGAN BOTH TO DO AND TEACH --1:2-- UNTIL THE DAY IN WHICH HE WAS TAKEN UP AFTER THAT HE THROGH THE HOLY SPIRIT HAD GIVEN COMMANDMENTS UNTO THE APOSTLES WHOM HE HAD CHOSEN JOHN 12:49 FOR I HAVE NOT SPOKEN OF MYSELF BUT THE FATHER WHICH SENT ME HE GAVE ME A COMMANDMENT WHAT I SHOULD SAY AND WHAT I SHOULD SPEAK
