    THE lord JESUS will help you as long as you stay true to him.

    Heathen have chosen as did Cain,a way that seems right to them,recipients of the tree of knowledge of good and evil,before the tree of life.The order was clear to Adam,but he subjected himself and posterity to Satan.Without life within the fruit of knowledge is deadly poisonous,evident in today's world that struggles/craves for life without God."He that hath the Son,hath life",and the truth of God

    Mild Bill; Amen Brother. And what is it that they so furiously rage against, and have their vain imagination? "..Against the LORD, and against His Anointed - Christ." It filled up in their slanders and accusations and lies; its filled up in their movies and music; its filled up in every thought of their hearts and expression: "NO GOD!" and "NO ONE TELLING ME ANYTHING!" O COME LORD JESUS! ITS TIME!

    i would say that let the verses one to five are talking about the battle of armageddon :) and of course in a lesser sense people or persons or countries or organizations who think they can persecute christians without eventual consequences

    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.
  • L.Holder
    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
