    Luke 12;1-5 Jesus warns me; and I trust him. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.I hope with all my heart that I will never forget it, reject it, or speak against it, If the Lord is willing he will continue to give me understanding in this matter, I have his peace in this. His mercy endures forever. Every word of God is pure. There is no fear in love, I love him and I fear him,trembling

    LUKE 12:4 AND I SAY UNTO YOU MY FRIENDS BE NOT AFRAID OF THEM THAT KILL THE BODY AND AFTER THAT HAVE NO MORE THAT THEY CAN DO *****12:5 BUT I WILL FOREWARN YOU WHOM YOU SHALL FEAR FEAR HIM WHICH AFTER HE HATH KILLED HATH POWER TO CAST INTO HELL YEA I SAY UNTO YOU FEAR HIM
  • Stephende
    This chapter foretells who shall enter the kingdom of God, and it will be those who watch for His coming. But it is not in the flesh but spiritual just as the heart Jesus speaks of is not a pump. He forewarns that what we do on earth in our lifetime predicts what becomes of our soul. Jesus is NOT coming to earth again to rule. Read the parables and learn that how we are is where we will go

    To disciple - You spend a lot of time instructing others - back at cha', disciple; we're pretty much alike - in that respect. I am telling the truth as I say this: I pray for all of those on here - you are part of 'all'. The peace and love of Jesus be with you this Saturday, disciple, have a blessed day.
