    We have to keep our eyes open at all times to be prepared for His coming or us to be leaving in this world. To be prepared means, do we obey His words? Are we filled with The Holy Spirit,A seal of protection against evil ways? A surety of salvation? If we receive The Holy Spirit we are considered His servants or His armies to fight against all principalities, against all evil.

  • Tyrek Jackson for verse 19
    Interesting right.... You see the word 'that' in italic formation... that normally mean that the word was not found in the original text... why not? Why was 'that' not found in the original text... I believe that when God speaks of a false witness, He is not making emphasis on flesh and blood but on the context and structure of the witness testimony itself... now i could be wrong but study I will do.. So here is a simplified question... what if God sees a 'false witness' as a testimony and not a person or a living being?
