    mild Bill; Why do you always look for something to strain out of its intended meaning, and attack me? Every time I try to be friendly, you can't answer peaceably; and whatever I write you wrench out another meaning!
  • Janet Abreu
    Jesus I pray this day that I hope in you. And that my faith will be stronger in you. Please be my forever refuge and guide to rest in you for help and safety this day and forever more. In the name of Jesus I pray amen.

    Eldy; God sent His servants to speak and to write for the express purpose of all men everywhere hearing and believing in Jesus Christ, and repenting of sin. He who created man in His own image and likeness knows what He made us capable of knowing and understanding, and He is not unrighteous to tell us things we can't understand, much less leave it up to men to guess what they mean!

    "The LORD also will be a refuge for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble." In Daniel 7:17 Wycliffe Bible is something for us to consider well for interpreting the vision and learning the words told us from the Lord. "These four great beasts be four realms, that shall rise of the earth. And he said, These four great beasts be four kingdoms, that shall rise upon the earth. " In the beginning, God spoke and the earth and all that was in it brought forth life after its kind. Thus it is of the world and the kingdoms of men that by the word of our God they are come into being "after their kind " and according to of what kind everything is, shall it be preserved or instead destroyed. We are of God, little children ALL thanks and praise forever to the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour! and as His children He will spare us if we serve Him with a pure heart in love, and with a good conscience toward God and men, and by faith without hypocrisy. By the sacrifice and offering of His only begotten Son Jesus the Anointed we have mercy and reconciliation, and complete deliverance from sin and death. He alone is worthy of all our love and perseverance through these fearful and dangerous times: and Jesus will be with us all the days, even to the end and will not fail to do ALL that He has said concerning us.
