    Thank you God for your mercies and grace they are renew every day. You died for our sin that we may live a beautiful life with our brother and sister.

    When we read the Gospel Narratives of Jesus' temptations and trials, of His being hated and harassed and persecuted, and of His at one point being completely given into the hands of the wicked to be mocked, condemned and destroyed; how many of us are able to consider what ALL is actually happening? He came into the world for that reason, to bear witness of the truth; and so does He send us.
  • Brianna vs.25
    Good is Jehovah to the one hoping in him, to the person who keeps seeking him.

    Jehovah God is the only means of salvation out of this wicked world. As we creep deeper and deeper into these last days, we see more and more how humans can not ring about any sort of hope or help to human kind. We have to put trust in Jehovah God in order to survive Armageddon.

    Enduring tests of faith will help us to deal with future challenges
  • A disciple
    I am always shocked when I read or hear someone (especially [so-called] Christians) speaking against the servants of the LORD. God was not displeased with Jeremiah; but Jeremiah was in great pain in his heart because he loved so greatly; but his love and all that he tried to reach those people, was rejected and mocked. We should have that kind of love that weeps over the destruction of the sinner!
  • Lilly
    Jeremiah showed a waiting attitude and relied on Jehovah in his life, we want to‚Äč show the same patience in our lives.
