    MATTHEW 22:29 JESUS ANSWERED AND SAID UNTO THEM YOU DO ERR NOT KNOWING --- THE SCRIPTURES --- NOR THE POWER OF GOD PROVERBS 24:2 FOR THEIR HEART STUDIETH DESTRUCTION AND THEIR LIPS TALK OF MISCHIEF

    Pete: That sounds good, but it don't work, Light doesn't mix with darkness. The greatest peacemaker of all walked on this planet and they hated it. He was the best of everything they could possibly have but they preferred darkness. Those born-again love automatically. If the world could, they still need a Savior. We are Heaven bound when washed Revelation 1:5/Matthew 3:11/2Corinthians 5:17
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    We are reminded by Jesus of two immutable laws in this chapter- love God and love your neighbour. If we love God, we will stay at the centre of His will and salvation, by His Grace will be ours. As a consequence, we will be heaven bound. If we love our neighbours, the world will be a saner place, no strive, no terrorism. Shouldn't we all obey these two laws?

    The same deceivers who, in the sight of men, question the existence of the Christ now: they are of those who crucified the Christ then: and are the same devils who are grossly deceived in believing they will crucify the risen Christ yet again. What do ye imagine against the LORD? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
