Be like an Olive, fair and beautiful.



"A leafy olive tree, fair with beautiful fruit: thus God has called your name"
Jeremiah (11:16)
 
זַיִת רַעֲנָן יְפֵה פְרִי תֹאַר קָרָא יְ-הוָה שְׁמֵך
ירמיהו יא: טז

ZA-yeet ra-ah-NAHN ya-FE toe-AHR ka-RA ah-doe-NIE sheem-KHA
 

Israel's Seven Species: Olives
The first time the Olive appears in the Bible is after the flood when Noah checked to see if the water had receded. When the dove returned with an Olive branch in her mouth, Noah knew that the water has receded sufficiently and life had begun anew. Genesis (8:11, 21). Pure Olive oil was the fuel source for the lighting of the golden Menorah in the Temple and was also used to anoint priests and kings as part of their initiation. One lesson we can take from Olives is that just like an Olive only yields oil when pressed, so too, when we are pressed between the millstones of life, our best selves often emerge when we rise to the occasion to meet life's challenges.


Heavenly Memo: "Entrapment"


All throughout the bible there are stories and examples of how other nations tried to take over Israel and rob them of their peace. Most of the time, Israel had turned their backs on God and left the door wide open for a take-over. There are people today who think that bad things happen to them because God got mad at them and sent enemies to rob them of their peace as well. Not true. Jesus died on that old, rugged cross so that you can be set free from all that would condemn you.  sPS delivers bad entrapments, not God. (satans Packaging Service.)

Hebrews 7:11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron? 12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.

God wants you to now live in His sweet Grace, not the Old School Master of the Law. Stop beating yourself up. (Galatians 2:24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. 25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.) 

With God's Grace there is no condemnation. Ephesians 4:7, 2 Peter 3:18, 1 Peter 1:2, Hebrews 12:28. The Holy Spirit convicts (gently), satan condemns. You will know when satan is on the prowl in your life because it seems that all of hell breaks loose. A female Pastor friend of mine once said, "You can tell when it's satan because confusion comes all at one time." Have you ever felt like the gates of Hell have been opened in your life? Nothing goes right and it even seems that the usual people in your life tend to have odd actions towards you? satan is trying to entrap you and make you think that what doesn't exist, exists. 

1st Peter 5:8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, AS a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. 10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. 11 To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

It's a trap, a gimmick. Don't fall for it. The best that you can do at that point is to fast and pray that God opens your spiritual ears and eyes so that you can see exactly what is behind the curtain. Pardon my next example but remember the teeny man behind the curtain on the Wizard of Oz on television when you were a kid? Dorothy thought that there was some great, all-knowing, all-gifting wizard that would give them what they wanted and it ends up that there was a little man behind the curtain, the fire, and the booming voice that they saw and heard. Our God is huge. He speaks softly to our hearts purposely so that we won't fall for the Big Booms during the course of our days. 

Jeremiah 15:20 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord. 21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.

Years ago, someone once asked another Pastor friend of mine, "How can I tell if I am in the right or wrong in a certain situation in my life?" He gently answered, "If your heart doesn't condemn you, then you are okay. If something just doesn't sit well with you, something needs to be checked or corrected." Great point. It could be a satanic booby trap to work against you.  

1st John 3:19 And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 20 For if our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things. 21 Beloved, if our heart condemn us not, then have we confidence toward God. 22 And whatsoever we ask, we receive of him, because we keep his commandments, and do those things that are pleasing in his sight.

Matthew 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.
 
There can possibly be no argument against that scripture. The enemy comes into our lives to rob, steal and kill but the Name and the Blood of Jesus blows his entire plan. Learn to use the Name of Jesus and put the invisible but very powerful Blood of Jesus over your problems and watch them dissipate. God wants you to trust that He will do the complicated work that needs to be done in your life. 

Stay blessed,

Does God exist?

A  man went to a barbershop to have his hair
cut and his beard trimmed.  As the barber began
to work, they began to have a good  conversation.  They talked about so many
things and various subjects.

 
When they eventually touched on the
subject of God, the barber said:
'I don't believe that God exists.'     


'Why do you say that?' asked the customer.
'Well, you just have to go out in the street  to
realize that God doesn't exist.  

Tell me, if God exists, would there be
so many sick people? Would there be abandoned children?

If God existed, there would be neither
suffering nor pain. 

I can't imagine a loving God who would
allow all of these things.' 

The customer thought for a moment, but
didn't respond because he didn't
want to start an argument.
  
The barber finished his job and the customer
left the shop.   


Just after he left the barbershop, he saw a
man in the street with long, stringy, dirty hair
and an untrimmed beard.  

He looked dirty and unkempt. The customer
turned back and entered the barbershop again
and he said to the barber: 

'You know what?  Barbers do not exist.'    

'How can you say that?' asked the surprised
barber. 'I am here, and I am a barber.  And I
just worked on you!'

 
'No!'  the customer exclaimed.  'Barbers don't
exist because if they did, there would be no
people with dirty long hair and untrimmed
beards, like that man outside.'


'Ah, but barbers DO exist!  That's what happens
when people do not come to me.'  

'Exactly!'  affirmed the customer.  'That's the
point!  God, too, DOES exist!  That's what
happens when people do not go to
Him and don't look to Him for help.      
That's why there's so much pain and
suffering in the  world.'


Send this to other
people . . .

Heavenly Memo: "Sodomy…. inclusion".


Jude 1:7
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Genesis 19:1 And there came two angels to Sodom at even; and Lot sat in the gate of Sodom: and Lot seeing them rose up to meet them; and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground; 2 And he said, Behold now, my lords, turn in, I pray you, into your servant's house, and tarry all night, and wash your feet, and ye shall rise up early, and go on your ways. And they said, Nay; but we will abide in the street all night. 3 And he pressed upon them greatly; and they turned in unto him, and entered into his house; and he made them a feast, and did bake unleavened bread, and they did eat. 4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. 6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, 7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. 8 Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof. 9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. 10 But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. 11 And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.
12 And the men said unto Lot, "Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: 13 For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the Lord; and the Lord hath sent us to destroy it."

Wrong is wrong no matter who passes the law to say that it is right. Sodom and Gomorrah were so sinful that God sent angels to tell Lot that He (they) were going to destroy the land. It is not  okay to sodomize in God's eyesight. Did we not think that we too would become stricken with blindness and various diseases? The word "sodomy" has originated from the actions of a sinful land. Yet today, our leadership passes laws to tell us that it is okay to do so. Our leaders are actually permitting the people under their leadership to commit horrific acts in the face of the Lord God Almighty at the same time that they breathe out the words, "God bless America." He will not. Until we live righteously and holy we will continue to have confusion and discourse. According to the laws of our land today, Sodom and Gomorrah would be great cities, giving everyone a chance to live freely. I believe they call it "inclusion." 

James 3:14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

strife |strīf|nounangry or bitter disagreement over fundamental issues; conflict: strife within the community | ethnic and civil strife.ORIGIN Middle English: shortening of Old French estrif (related to Old French estriver 'strive')In the case of Lot, the angels that God sent to him to warn him of the sins of the land in which he lived were so attractive to these men or, the men of the city were so demonically riddled, that the men of the land wanted to have ungodly relations with them.  (God's anointing is always attractive.) "To know" in the bible at times means "to have a physical relationship with someone. Example: Genesis 4:1 And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain, and said, "I have gotten a man from the Lord." know ||verb ( past knew |n(y)o͞o|past participle known |nōn| )
1   with obj. ] archaic have sexual intercourse with (someone).[a Hebraism that has passed into modern languages; compare withGerman erkennen,French connaître .]
The men of Sodom wanted these men so badly that they threatened Lot himself if he didn't let them out of the house so that they could rape them, "sodomize" them. Lot guarded the angels and even offered his own daughters to keep the two angels safe.  

sodomy
 |ˈsädəmē|
nounsexual intercourse involving anal or oral copulation.DERIVATIVESsodomize |ˈsädəˌmīz|verbORIGIN Middle English: from medieval Latin sodomiafrom late Latinpeccatum Sodomiticum 'sin of Sodom' (after Gen. 19:5, which implies that the men of Sodom practiced homosexual rape) (see Sodom. It is never a great decision to compromise with the enemy. When confronted with this subject do not cave in and ride the waves, defend God's Word at all costs and He will reward you. 2 Timothy 1:7. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power and love, and of a sound mind. Trust that God will guard you and blind the enemy as well.

In Video and Pictures: More than 32,000 evacuated and hundreds  of houses destroyed as monster Colorado fire too dangerous to assess DOUBLES in size

  • 32,000 evacuated from Colorado Springs including Air Force Academy cadets as inferno spreads
  • hundreds of homes lost in Waldo Canyon Fire - named number one priority for emergency crews
  • Obama to tour the disaster-stricken area on Friday to meet firefighters working around the clock

By Associated Press

The raging Colorado Springs wildfire sent thousands of people fleeing yesterday and left them begging exhausted fire crews for information on the fate of their homes. 

The fire, which doubled in size to around 28 square miles, had forced more than 32,000 residents to evacuate from the state's second largest city. Among those urgently evacuated were cadets at the Air Force Academy as firefighters fought to save the building.

Heavy smoke and ash billowed down the mountain from the Waldo Canyon Fire, which is top priority for the nation's firefighters. Jeffrey Lucas, who has lived in the area all his life, said his family home had burned to the ground.

9 For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; 12 Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: 13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: 14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17 And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

Amen.

Jerusalem, in IMAX

You've never seen Israel like this.

In the new IMAX film Jerusalem, lush forests and emerald coastlines go up against miraculously jagged mountains and deserts all filmed in a soaring panorama. It's packed with the kind of visuals you can't help but describe with superlatives. Sure, it doesn't limit itself to just the city of Jerusalem--but with a country with vistas like these, it's hard to complain.

The video's focus is on architecture and natural wonders rather than people (or ethnic and religious conflict). At some points, it definitely sounds like an advertisement for tourism: the video spotlights Masada, the desert fortress where a group of Jews made their last stand against Rome, and the Old City of Jerusalem, with the Western Wall and Dome of the Rock.

If this is propaganda (and, one way or another, it is), it's still probably the most beautiful propaganda we're ever likely to see. Jerusalem is scheduled for a full-length release in 2013, but you can watch a 7-minute preview on YouTube right now.

Heavenly Memo: "The Power of the Blood"


The Power of the Blood

Do you use the Blood of Jesus and His name to rebuke evil? There once was a preacher who said that only old fashioned people say, "The Blood of Jesus!" Well call me old fashioned because I say it every day and I pray that you do too. By the Blood of Jesus we can enter into the Holy of Holies.  
(Hebrews 9:22) And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. 23 It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: (Heb 10:19-23) Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 21 And having an high priest over the house of God; 22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. 23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) 
Hebrews 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

Jesus Blood was equal to the task. The blood of animals no longer are accepted by God. They are not good enough. If you know anyone in the back woods sacrificing anything, they are in error. 

Revelations 3:21 "To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne." The bible also tells us that Jesus was the Greatest Sacrifice and is now sitting down on the right hand of God, making intercession for us. This means that Jesus is the filter between us and God. We MUST go through Him. God will not hear us unless we: 1. accept His Son or 2. happen to be repenting at the time. Evil people think that God is listening to their shenanigans. He is too Holy to put up with it. You have to show Him that you are interested in His Word, Will and Ways or He will turn His head from you. Your obedience to Jesus attracts God, not your sins. God gave His best and wants you to accept it.....(Him/Jesus.) You can say that you are mad at Him all you want or yell at Him all you want but until you say "Okay God! I accept Jesus! Now what?" (And beware of your attitude when you say it) other than that, He will not hear you. 

Romans 8:34 Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.

The Blood of Jesus will produce a change in a person. 2 Cor 5:17 "If any man be in Christ, he is a new Creature. Eze 11:19 There will be a freshness, God can now write His Word in our hearts. The unsaved conscience is defiled. They keep thinking that they can do something over and over without consequence. Repeat offenders do this and heretics. Only through the Blood of Jesus are we free from condemnation and guilt that comes from a defiled and spotted conscience. 

The reason that the entertainment world, etc. want us to believe in Aliens is so that when we finally see one we will think that they are just Aliens.....they are demons!  Plea the Blood of Jesus and be free of it. Even the Air Force sees UFO's and they "all of a sudden" disappear out of site. They disappear because they are of the spiritual world. These are not aliens but spirits that are sent to upset us and place fear in us. E.T. is not as friendly as the one in the movie. Researchers did a study on those who were allegedly abducted. Those who called on the name of Jesus Christ awakened from the so-called "abduction" and was freed. Those who didn't call on Jesus ended up with scratches, implantations, sicknesses. Only the name of Jesus works against these so-called aliens.  Only the name and Blood of Jesus works against the enemy. 

The aspects of the Power of the Blood:

1. We are redeemed by the Blood Eph 1:7, Col 1:14, Rev 5:9 Redeemed "exaggerazo" to buy out, purchasing a slave with a view of freedom. "Lutroo" to release on receipt or ransom, paying a price for. 1 Tim 2:5-6, Matt 20:28, 1 Cor 6:20 Redemption is eternal. Heb 9:12. It is not by money, vain conversation or traditions. 

2. We are forgiven Eph 1:7, Col 1:14 Conviction=sin is revealed. Condemnation = Punishment, satan would condemn you and drive you away from God. 

3. By the Blood we are cleansed. 1 John 1:7, Rev 1:5, 7:14 We become pure and cease to do evil. Heb 9:14, 2 Tim 2:21. 

4. By the Blood we are justified. Romans 5:9 Because we are cleansed. Lev 14:1-7 The leper is cleansed and restored to the fold. "Tsadag" to be made right. You are made innocent by the Blood of Jesus.  Acquitted from all guilt. Just as if you never sinned. This doesn't mean that you can abuse God's Grace. satan accuses you to.....YOU! Job 1:6, 2:1, Rev 12:10 "diabolos" accuser, a sanderer.

5. The Blood sanctifies: The Blood is our defense. You now have Peace. Is 43:26, 1 Jo 5:8 the 3 must agree, John 17:17 sanctified by the Word....READ THE WORD! As Jesus' hands were fastened our hands should be fastened to do His work only. Our walk is to be sanctified. As Jesus' feet were nailed to the Cross and His Blood spilled, it sanctifies and cleanses our walk. Blood was spilled in three places in the Bible...1. The Garden = freeing of the mind. 2. The Whipping Post = By His stripes we were healed. (It is done). 3. At Calvary - bruised for our iniquities. 

Jesus is good, God is good, praise Him and use that Blood that He shed.....FOR YOU!

God bless,

"Cult Leader Thinks He's Jesus (Documentary Exclusive)"

My thoughts on this subject (The Word below):


Mark 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not: 22 For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. 23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

ladrev1257 sent you a video: "Cult Leader Thinks He's Jesus (Documentary Exclusive)"
YouTube  
 
Deep in Siberia's Taiga forest is Vissarion, a cult leader who looks like Jesus and claims to be the voice of God. He's known as "the Teacher" to his 4,000 followers, who initially seem surprisingly normal. Over time, however, their unflinching belief in UFOs and the Earth's imminent demise made this group start to look more and more like some sort of strange cult.

Heavenly Memo: "How is your name written?"



The 3rd epistle of John

John names three men and their characters in this short but powerful letter that went down in history and on to our coffee tables and into our libraries even today. Let's expore the significance.

Firstly, Gaius. He addresses Gaius in the first paragraph whom he says that he loves in the truth. This specifically lets the reader know that it is not an ungodly lust but a Godly-type of love...Agape love. This is how Jesus wanted us to love one another. There are three types of love: 1. Agape (Godly) 2. Filios/Philios (Friendship, Family) and 3. Eros (Sensual/Sexual.) The first is displayed here, praise God. 

John goes on in the second paragraph to wish prosperity upon Gaius. He also wishes good health to him. Do we wish one another good health when speaking or do we wait until they have a bad report, a prayer request or are placed in the hospital? Don't wait. Wish someone good health while you are chatting in the market, on the bus, at work or in church. It is a part of blessing others. Your blessings will come back pressed down, shaken and running over because you are actually giving. It is better to give than to receive. To wish for something, as we can see in this example, is not magic. God's Blessings precede magic. Blessings are permanent, magic is temporal...it only lasts a while. 

wish |wiSH|verb [ no obj. ]feel or express a strong desire or hope for something that is not easily attainable; want something that cannot or probably will not happen: wewished for peace | [ with clause ] he wished that he had practiced the routines.• silently invoke such a hope or desire, esp. in a ritualized way: I closed my eyes and wished.• with infinitive ] feel or express a desire to do something: they wish to become involved.• with obj. and infinitive ] ask (someone) to do something or that (something) be done: I wish it to be clearly understood.• with two objs. ] express a desire for (the success or good fortune) of (someone): they wish her every success.• with obj. ] (wish something onhope that something unpleasant will happen to: I would not wish it on the vilest soul.
Blessing someone is to wish good success or good fortune on them. Have you blessed someone today?

John goes on to say that he takes great pleasure in hearing that those souls that he has won over to Jesus Christ are still walking in the truth. They have not backslidden but are living holy and righteous. It hurts us horribly when we see someone give up on God and go back to their old wicked ways. The bible says that when a demon/spirit comes back in a person, they bring 7 of their brothers with them. That person is worse than they were at the first. Stay with Jesus and do not backslide.
Matt 12:43 When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44 Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished. 45 Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first.
John tells us to do good to our brethren and strangers. We are to have a good spiritual reputation and show love/charity. "Let brotherly love continue." Christians are not to set within four walls being religious, ceremonial, traditional, ritualistic and legal. God wants us to live by Grace. There is freedom in knowing Jesus Christ. We are to have an outreach to those who are not with or like us. Jesus said it's easy to forgive and love someone that you know but how good to we do it to those that we don't know? 
Secondly mentioned is Diotrephes. John does not seem to have quite the same liking of Diotrephes as Gaius. He explains why by saying that Diotrephes loves to have preeminence and doesn't receive the brethren as a Christian should. He loved surpassing all otherssuperiority. No one is superior but God. The rest of us are all the same....human. 
In addition to being ambitious, proud, disrespectful of apostolic authority, rebellious, and inhospitable, the author of the letter says that Diotrephes tried to hinder those desiring to show hospitality to the brothers and to expel these from the congregation. Not even the location of Diotrephes' church can be determined from the letter. 
The following is the passage and notes from the New English Translation.
John 1:9 I wrote something to the church,[4] but Diotrephes,[5] who loves to be first among them, does not acknowledge us.[6] 1:10 Therefore, if I come,[7] I will call attention to the deeds he is doing[8] – the bringing of unjustified charges against us with evil words! And not being content with that, he not only refuses to welcome the brothers himself, but hinders the people who want to do so and throws them out of the church! 1:11 Dear friend, do not imitate what is bad but what is good.[9] The one who does good is of God; the one who does what is bad has not seen God.[10]

This is one reason that I am against outcasting someone from the church too quickly. Paul says in 2 Cor 13:1 that in the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established. Matthew 18:15-17 is the holy order on disagreements among brethren. These things need to be established in our churches. Outcasting or disassociation of a member just because the pastor, etc. doesn't like them is not Godly. That makes it a club not a church. I'm sure that Jesus wasn't too happy about Judas either but He allowed him to stay nonetheless. Jesus showed no fear and doesn't want us to show it either.
Thirdly, Demetrius who had a good name and lived in truthfulness as did Gaius. God recognizes those who live in spirit and in truth. God raises us up and can cast us down when He is ready. The three men, Gaius, Diotrephes, and Demetrius had no idea that their names would go down in history. I am sure that if Diotrephes did, he would have behaved better. It's too late now. Accept Jesus as your personal Savior if you haven't. Get your name written on the Good Book and see the New Heaven and New Earth. Stroll along beautiful gardens and want for nothing with Jesus at your side. Live, love, be passionate about the Lord and be free!
