HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy, though despised and poor.
Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.
Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.
As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
All their foes they boldly dare.
~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~
These are pretty strong words:
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth:
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,
10 And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
“Previous Pew Research Center studies have shown that the share of Americans who believe in God with absolute certainty has declined in recent years, while the share saying they have doubts about God’s existence – or that they do not believe in God at all – has grown.”
By Diana Chandler
A fourth of self-identified Christians don’t believe fully in the biblical description of God, Pew Research Center said in its latest study.
Rather, 25 percent of American Christians believe in what Pew described as “God or another higher power” who is not necessarily all-loving, omniscient and omnipotent as Scripture reveals.
“In total, three-quarters of U.S. Christians believe that God possesses all three of these attributes — that the deity is loving, omniscient and omnipotent,” Pew found in the study of about 4,750 Americans released April 25. Click here to continue reading.

Biblical Christianity – The Biggest Obstacle to the New Age
BEWARE of the catholic pope AND some protestants! We have been called out of her-STAY OUT!
“The Unity of which Jesus spoke was Unity in the Holy Spirit – oneness of the brethren who believe that we are saved by Grace through faith – who believe that the only reason we are saved is because Jesus Christ died on that horrid Cross to pay for our sins (the debt we could NEVER pay) and that He rose on the third day and conquered death and hell for those who would repent and place their trust in Him.”~ AMEN~

33 And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, and the other on the left.
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.
Thank GOD for His compassion and mercy on us!!

12 And in that day thou shalt say, O Lord, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me.
2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
4 And in that day shall ye say, Praise the Lord, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted.
5 Sing unto the Lord; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
6 Cry out and shout, thou inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.

The clock is ticking…you choose- A NEW LIFE IN JESUS-or the continuence of an old dead life…
1 Peter 1:18-21
18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.
GOD IS SO GOOD TO REVEAL HIS TRUTH TO THOSE THAT WILL LISTEN ❤ ❤ ❤
