The Lord placed this event on my heart this Spring and has been moving so fast opening doors and just paving the way. It is so beautiful to see Him move. He is bringing so many people together to help those in need because He loves each of us so very much. I am so grateful and honored to have Him lead my Will to have His Will be done.
And they overcame him (satan)
by the blood of the Lamb
(The Lord Jesus Christ,
by whose blood they were redeemed
and ransomed out of the hands of Satan.
Jesus was the sacrificial lamb whom
died on the Cross for our sins)
They shared their testimony to of their conversion to Christ and
all He had done for them
They did not value their lives;
by dying thus they conquered Satan;
but dying in the cause of Christ,
and for it, they got the victory over satan.
Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men
It is not enough to believe in him,
with the heart,
but confession of him must also be made with the mouth;
and which lies in ascribing their whole salvation to him,
giving him the glory of it;
declaring their faith in him to others,
and what he has done for their souls;
and subjecting themselves to his ordinances,
and joining in fellowship with his church and people:
as it ought to be both by words and deeds,
and to be hearty and sincere,
so likewise visible, open, and before men.
him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven:
Jesus will introduce them into his Father's presence,
and recommend them to him,
to be honoured, blessed, and glorified by him.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts
By declaring and proclaiming his holiness,
by glorifying of him, praising and applauding all his perfections.
and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear;
The profession of hope;
in which persons profess their hope of eternal life
and happiness through Christ.
Should be well acquainted with the ground
and foundation of the Christian religion;
be conversant with the Scriptures,
and be able to point out that in them,
and this is to be done with meekness and fear;
with meekness, before men;
in an humble modest way;
not with an haughty air,
and in a morose and surly manner,
which serves only to irritate and provoke:
