    Paul has given us a clear picture of Gods Kingdom!From creation unto the redemption of mankind.All the prophets ,apostles , and promises fulfilled through the word of his power.
    This confession is clear enough for all of us to understand!Remember that his kingdom will reign for ever.In the short time we have on earth, We are in a race, to witness these things and provoke others to believe.
  • Servant of God
    For the love of God, Jesus for his love of righteousness and hatred of iniquity found favor with God. If Jesus purged your sins, why are you still full of iniquity? God has always sent his elect to deal with an untoward people, to enlighten them, not to hand them the keys to heaven. You must earn it! Jesus sits where he sits as the 12 heads of the tribes of Israel praise God continually. Rev.
  • HILLIARD WALKER
    it is exciting to understand the word of God especially in the first two verses of Hebrews chapter 1. it clearly say that before God spoke His word [JESUS] to the prophets instructing them as to what he wanted. Now since Jesus has come as God's only BEGOTTEN son [the voice of God] God no longer instructs because Jesus who is the express image and word of God now speaks. Jesus is the Word of God.

    He made his angles spirits and his ministers flames of fire. Are your ministets truth tellers or fund raisers? Do you long for righteosness or pretend your already saved. Misinterpreters of scripure or learners precept by precept, a little here a little there. Do you feign rapture or deal with the Heart of the matter, without pretence. My experience with todays Christians. Dig it?
