The bible is about u do Gods will,following God,s word with our whole hearts. Explain to the people that we are being judged by God in a spirit,and in truth. God is a spirit that we can feel when we truly sleek his anointing.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Verse 1 is particularly instructive since it reminds us of the emergence of false prophets which the Bible warns will be hallmark of the last days. "Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.". While the warning is directed at pastors, it applies to all who preach false doctrines that cause souls to stray from the path of righteousness.

    And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus said unto them, Seest thou these great buildings? For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ and shall deceive many.
