    Instead of seeing the sorrows,look to the strong and victorious Lord.The only God of salvation,everlasting life and love towards us.Affliction may be with us,but we are not in darkness.We will have deliverance for he has promised,to those who trust in him.Cry unto God,not the cry of those who have no hope, but those who know their creator.Our thanksgivings and praises are to him,the Lord Jesus.

    Therefore I will call upon the Lord were I will be saved from my enemies Thank you Jesus for protecting me from my enemies Shalom my Peace and my saviour amen hallelujah

    Hear my word, Do my word and be saved!.With such clear message, why do we seem to hope for forgiveness to our seemingly endless deeds against the word of Christ.Repentance is not regret. I looked for ways beyond the comfort of forgiveness and boundaries of the doctrine itself to search "How Can I do his Word". Amazingly, it was not disappointing.
  • Cephas
    The God of my rock in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour thou savest me from violence. Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
