    God is Good all the time. And all the time God is Good. Think, if we all followed God and what he needs us to do, there would be no Evil to worry about. Our children would be safe. Death would be years away. Oh what a Glorious day That will be.

    God is great . He lay down his rules for us to follow . All we need to do is be faithful and love each other . God is not mock and he is looking out for us . Take heed and let God leads you
  • Enny Onakoya
    Psalm 2 is a great encouragement passage that really portray God as a God who is sovereign and always on top of any adverse circumstances, regardless of those that are conspiring against Him or those He endorsed their candidacy.
    Though the enemies may use their position to influence things but their plans will always fail, and fall apart like pack of cards!
  • Matt S
    We see the heathen rage specifically in these moments in time as they take to the streets protesting the rights of some as the unborn are continually slaughtered under the same morality as those who march . They hide behind self righteousness and know not GOD. But God is not mocked...Galations 6:7
