Egypt attack on Coptic Christians: Wake up, President Sisi! ISIS is murdering your Christian children
The first thing I read on Friday morning was that 28 Egyptians in the Sinai had been murdered by terrorists, with more than 20 others wounded. And my first thought was clear and to the point: Maybe this will finally wake up the Egyptian authorities
.The grisly attack, carried out with firearms, took place on an isolated road in the Sinai desert – a sparsely populated region of Egypt where some believe ISIS is setting up a new base of operations in the wake of their losses in Iraq and Egypt.
The victims belonged to a church group of Coptic Christians and many of them were children. They were on their way to pray at the Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor.
The victims belonged to a church group of Coptic Christians and many of them were children. They were on their way to pray at the Monastery of St. Samuel the Confessor.
Coptic scholar Samuel Tadros described the scene in the New York Times, “The terrorists waited on the road like game hunters. Coming their way were three buses, one with Sunday school children. Only three of them survived. Their victims were asked to recite the Islamic declaration of faith before being shot.”
Of course it wasn’t the first attack on Egypt’s Christians this year. It seems like just yesterday when, on Palm Sunday, two Cairo churches were bombed, and during those twin assaults a total of 45 people were killed and 126 injured.
Maybe this will finally wake up the Egyptian authorities, I remember thinking at the time.
In March, just weeks before, and again in Sinai, hundreds of Christian families fled their homes after ISIS threatened to slaughter them. And it wasn’t an idle threat – seven Christian men were found dead, their bodies discarded along roadways like so much trash.
Last year was no better. In May 2016, I wrote,“A riot– based on a salacious rumor – led to ferocious violence against a Coptic family in El-Karm, located in Egypt’s southern province of Minya. Some 300 raging Islamists stripped a 70-year-old mother naked and paraded her, shamed and weeping, through the streets of her hometown, while torching seven Christian houses.By Lela Gilbert

(CAIRO) — Masked militants riding in three SUVs opened fire Friday on a bus packed with Coptic Christians, including children, south of the Egyptian capital, killing at least 28 people and wounding 22, the Interior Ministry said.
No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, the fourth to target Christians since December, but it bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group. The attack came on the eve of the start of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

Pompeo has now been officially confirmed as President Trump's new CIA
director. The US senate voted Monday, with an outcome of 66-32
in favor of Mr. Pompeo, reports The
Independent. An evangelical Christian, Pompeo is a well-respected
figure in the national security community. He is also an
army veteran, and a staunch pro-life advocate.
years ago, Pompeo gave a Church speech where he said Muslims who
think Islam is “the only way” needed to be dealt with. “This
threat to America is from people who deeply believe that Islam is the
way and the light and the only answer,” Pompeo told the
church-goers, according to

Christians from the face of the earth,” he added. “They abhor
Christians,” he said of a small minority among Muslims.

to call on Muslim leaders to denounce acts of terrorism committed in
the name of Islam. “It's been just under two months since the
attacks in Boston, and in those intervening weeks, the silence of
Muslim leaders has been deafening,” he said.
to condemn such attacks, he asserted, makes Muslim leaders
“potentially complicit” in the attacks. "When the most
devastating terrorist attacks on America in the last 20 years come
overwhelmingly from people of a single faith and are performed in the
name of that faith, a special obligation falls on those that are the
leaders of that faith," he said.

Bible teaches that the Word of God is Spirit and Life, (Phil. 2:16)
and that Jesus also is the Word of God. (Rev. 19:13). The Bible and
our Lord Jesus Christ are both referred to as the Word of God, and
only Jesus and the Word has the power to make people free!
Bible is the written Word of God and Jesus is the Living Word of God!
And if you will believe the Holy Scriptures are true, Jesus Christ
will become real in your heart.
Lord made the statement, "Whosoever commiteth sin is the servant
of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house forever, but the
son abideth ever. If
the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."

NOT FREE, but thanks be to God, the TRUTH will liberate them!

1 – GOD HAS NOT CHANGED, HE
CHANGE AND HE WILL NOT CHANGE!
God states: "I am the Lord, I change not." (Mal. 3:6).
Here, the Living God makes one of His most significant statements of
fact. He is changeless,
always constant and timeless!
Nothing can alter that great truth! Men are born, live, pass on and
are gone like the grass of the field, but God remains the same!
Bible says, “And Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the
foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thine
They shall perish; but Thou remainest; and
they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt Thou
fold them up, and they shall bechanged:
Thou art the same, and Thy years shall not fail."
are some of God’s attributes!
GOD IS ETERNAL - The Ever Living One
is without beginning or end, everlasting and always God! The Psalmist
David wrote: "Lord, Thou has been our dwelling place in all
the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth
and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God...
a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past,
and as a watch in the night." (Ps. 90:1-4)
Eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms..."
33:27); “But unto the Son He saith, Thy throne, O God, is forever
and ever …And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the
foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of Thy hands:
His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, the Father stated: “They
shall perish, but Thou remainest; and
they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt Thou
fold them up, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and
Thy years shall not fail.” (Heb.1: 8-120
HE IS OMNIPITENT - He is all powerful
am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside Me: I
girded thee, though thou hast not known Me: That they may know from
the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside
I am the Lord, and there is none else."
have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even My hands, have
stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.”
said: "All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth."
is all wise and all knowing!
the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but
unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I
will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the
understanding of the prudent.
is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this
world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?
after that in the wisdom of God, the world by wisdom knew not God,
pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that
Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom:
preach Christ crucified,
unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But
unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
the power of God, and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of
God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men."
(1 Cor. 2:18-25)
God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen."
(Rom. 16:27) If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that
giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be
given him." (James 1:5)
GOD IS IMMUTABLE
– His Word is permanent as is His character. He is perfect in all
things; totally truthful, and since He never makes a mistake He
doesn't need to apologize for error. There is no error in God. If
He has said it, that settles it. God is God and is changeless and
of His Word” speaks of the permanent character of His Word.
Since God and His Word are one, He is permanently error-free,
unchanging, righteous and perfect! Glory to His Name! You can
believe unreservedly on Him with total trust! (Heb. 6:13-18)
GOD HAS NOT CHANGED:
From eternity to eternity, He is God! He was the same in the
beginning of man’s existence, He is the same today and He will be
the same throughout eternity! Praise God!
GOD CANNOT CHANGE:
It is impossible for God to be anything but Who and What He is today
– powerful, wise, kind, righteous, loving, generous, good, holy,
just and true. He declared: “I am the Lord, I change not.” (Mal
GOD WILL NOT CHANGE IN THE FUTURE:
The Bible says: "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the
ending, saith the Lord, which
is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."
Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth;
and the heavens are the works of Thine hands: They shall perish; but
and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
as a vesture shalt Thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but
art the same, and thy years shall not fail.”
HE HAS NOT CHANGED:

things, which thou knowest not.” (Jer. 33:3)

shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he

ye then being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how
much more shall your Father in heaven give good things to them that
ask Him?” (Matt. 7:7-9)
still forgives the sinner:
it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the
Lord shall be saved." (Acts 2:21); "But
if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship
one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us
from all sin.
we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is
not in us. If
we confess our sins, He isfaithful
and just to forgive us our sins, and
to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." (l John 1:7-9)
God still brings peace to troubled souls and removes guilt:
not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in Me.
leave with you,
My peace I give unto you: not
as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be
troubled, neither let it be afraid." (John 14:1, 27)
being justified by faith,
we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ. There is therefore now no
to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but
after the Spirit." (Rom. 5:1; 8:1)

they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” (Col.1:20)
God still cares:
the Lord said, I have surely seen
the affliction of My people which are in Egypt, and have heard
their cry by reason of their taskmasters; for I know
their sorrows; And
I am come down to deliver them out
of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land
unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and
honey.” (Ex. 3:7-8)

God still meets our financial needs:

Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. But
rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be
added unto you.” (Luke 12:24,27,31)
God still heals the sick:
am the Lord that healeth thee.” (Ex.15: 26); Bless the lord , O my
soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgiveth all thine
healeth all thy diseases.”
(Ps. 103: 2, 3).
these signs shall follow them that believe; in My name shall they
cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take
up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt
them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
(Mark 16: 17-18

pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and
the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him
and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him."
God still fills believers with the Holy Spirit:
Peter said unto them, repent, and be baptized every one of you in the
name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and
ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are
afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call."
ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children:
much more shall
your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that

Christ, the same yesterday, today and forever.” (Heb. 13:8)
God still blesses and loads us with benefits:
the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healeth all thy diseases."

the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine
increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses
shall burst out with new wine.” (Prov.3:9, 10)
God still protects us from danger, evil and Satan:
shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy
dwelling. For He shall give His angels charge over thee, to keep
thee in all thy ways." (Psalm 91:10-11)
thou not; for I am with thee:
be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I
will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of My
righteousness." (Isa. 41:10); "Who

Who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies."

that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is
the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is
of Me, saith the Lord.”
the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils
are subject unto us through Thy name.” (Luke 10:17)
God still leads, guides and directs us:
as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they
are the sons of God.
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye
have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with

2 – GOD HAS NOT LIED.
CANNOT LIE AND HE WILL NOT LIE!
We know what God will do in the future
by what He has done
in the past, because He has
not changed. He
has always told the truth, for He is the TRUTH and since it is
impossible for God to lie, we know we can put our trust
in Him as God.
He is too good to do anything wrong.
He is too wise to make a mistake. He is too powerful to allow Satan
to harm His children who call upon His Name in faith and who trust in
He is too conscientious and correct
to lose our number, forget us or leave us to aimlessly drift on the
sea of life and death without His divine guidance and direction.
The Scripture emphatically declares:
"God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of man
that he should repent; (change his mind) hath
He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and shall He not
make it good? (Numbers
the Prophet declared: "And
also the Strength of Israel will not lie or repent: for He is not a
man that He should repent."
(1 Sam. 15:29)
can believe the Word of God because it is ever and always the same.
St. James said, "A
double minded man is unstable in all his ways!"
He admonishes us to ask God for our needs, in faith. And He assures
us that our needs will be met, because we are dealing with the One,
Who is always the same and is liberal in His giving!
good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from
the Father of lights, with Whom
is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
Paul, in writing to Titus made the great declaration that I am now
Since it is
impossible for God to lie, His nature is totally against falsehood
and His commandments all demand truth and condemn lying, we can
therefore rest assured that His promises are trustworthy. Period!
Word of God states: “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither
the son of man, that He should repent; hath He said, and shall He not
do it? Or hath he spoken, and shall He not make it good?” (Numbers
BIBLE SAYS: "I hate every false way." (Psalm 119:104)
"Lying lips are abomination to the Lord: but they that deal
truly are His delight." (Prov. 12:22)
has not lied, cannot lie and will not lie, for He not only speaks the
Truth, but HE
IS THE TRUTH!
The Holy Record says, "And He that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write:
for these words are true and faithful."
(Rev. 21:5) Our Lord Jesus Christ stated, "I am the Way, the
and the Life." (John 14:6)
IS NO TRUTH IN SATAN: HE
IS A LIAR EXTRA-ORDINAIRE!
Christ’s description of the Evil One was an indictment: "He
was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth,
because there is no truth in him."
teachers who give themselves over to Satan become perverted, because
he is perverted!
"And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge,
gave them over to a reprobate mind,
to do those things which are not convenient." (Rom. 1:28)
the Spirit speaketh expressly, that
in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to
seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot
iron." (1 Tim. 4:1-2)
Holy Scripture makes it very plain, that the Blessed Holy Spirit is
the Spirit of Truth: "But when the Comforter is come, Whom I
will send unto you from the Father,
even the Spirit of Truth,
which proceedeth from the Father, He shall testify of Me." (John
anointing of God teacheth you all things and is truth and is no lie”.
(1 John 2:27)
IS A LIAR? HE THAT DENIES
John declared, "I have not written unto you because ye know not
the truth, but because ye know it, and that no lie is of the truth.
Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ?
is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever
denieth the Son, the same hath not the father: but he that
acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also."
(1 John 2:21-23)
who advocate teachings, ideologies and doctrines that disagree with
the Holy Bible - the Divine Infallible Word of God - were labelled
liars, by the Apostle Paul, when he wrote:
what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of
God without effect? God forbid: Yea,let
God be true, but every man a liar...”
matters not what men say about the Word of God. It will stand the
test of both time and eternity; never swerving nor changing, but
always constant and firm. Praise God!
IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR GOD TO LIE! The writer to the Hebrews (probably St.
Paul) declared without hesitation, citing two proofs that God can be
trusted to be absolutely steadfast, trustworthy and honourable in all
when God made promise to Abraham, because He could swear by no
sware by Himself,
saying, Surely, blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will
so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise. For men
verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation is to them
an end of all strife.
God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the
of His counsel(the
permanent character of His Word)
confirmed it by an oath: That by two immutable things, in which it
for God to lie,
we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay
hold upon the hope set before us:
we have as an anchor of the soul, both
sure and steadfast
and which entereth into that within the veil; whither the forerunner
is for us entered, even
an High Priest forever
after the order of Melchisedek." (Heb. 6:13-20)
3 – GOD IS NO RESPECTOR

He has done for one, He will do for all who believe! WHY IS THIS?
He is no respecter of persons. The
only thing that God answers to is sincere belief and faith in Him!
If we mean business with God, calling upon Him in humility and faith,
He will answer.

past, present or future!
because God does not change,
He will still perform those same great miracles that He has performed
in the past, in any place, any time or for any one He chooses! He is
God and therefore, has all power, knows all things and can do all

My question is:
“Pray tell, Who made that man who became God”?
similarity exists between Muslim and Mormon teaching. Muhammed

that Gabriel dictated to him the words of the Quran, even though it
contains many serious contradictions, carries many plagiarized
portions of the Old and New Testaments and spurious writings from
known enemies of the Gospels. It also contains direct passages from
known ancient writings of Jewish Talmuds!
Quran erroneously calls Miryam the sister of Moses, the virgin mother
of Jesus! Muhammed
was so untaught in the New Testament that that he didn’t know the
difference, and so confused Miriam the sister of Moses (who
lived 2,000 years earlier) with
the virgin mother of Jesus!
At first, Muhammed believed that the Christians taught that the Holy
Trinity was comprised of God the Father, Mary the Mother and Jesus
OF THEIR GREATEST ERRORS ARE:
They place the 7th
century camel driver who conquered and killed by the sword, above
Jesus the Christ, Whom they call only a lesser prophet.
secondly, they claim Jesus’ prophecy of the descent of the Holy
Spirit referred to Muhammed,
thereby blasphemously declaring that their prophet is the fulfillment
of the Blessed Holy Ghost, the sweet Spirit of Almighty God!
does not deter God! Geographical boundaries give Him no problem, for
He created everything and owns everything. He is not a stranger to
any place, anything or anybody. What He did in Jerusalem He can do
in Africa, Canada or Russia.
The colour of
the skin, language of the people, or climatic conditions have no
effect on Him. He is true to His Word, always honours faith, rejects
partiality, responds to worship and praise, delights in the truth and
enjoys showing mercy, compassion and tenderness!
still drives out fears and liberates the slaves of Satan’s bondage
and sin. And He desires to heal all the sick and diseased who
recognize Him as Lord and Healer!
repeat, God is no respecter of places, nationalities or geographic
boundaries. St. Paul stated, "There
is no respecter of persons with God.
For as many as have sinned without the law shall also perish without
the law; and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the
law." (Rom. 2:11-12)
and poor, black and white, red, yellow and brown all stand on even

are certain promises made to Israel that do not apply to the

love transcends all borders as St. Peter discovered when he and six
of his Jewish brethren went - by the command of the Lord - to

Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which

that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God." (Acts
men have tried to dictate to God!
You cannot lock God in a time capsule or a straight jacket,
dictating to Him when, where and upon whom He can or cannot work His
works! He is God and cannot be bound by our finite minds and often
"wrong thinking", in the natural! Theologians have tried
to do this repeatedly!
as they have put a timing
such matters, He suddenly breaks forth in sovereign and glorious
demonstration and does the unthinkable in the most unusual places and
so-called forbidden times!
after revival have broken loose in nation after nation, century after
century, and will continue to do so until Jesus comes and the Church

Israel (Matt. 15:20-28), yet He was drawn by human need and went to

great revival was the outcome, as He stayed for two days ministering
God upset Peter
giving him a vision of unclean animals and telling him to rise up,
kill and eat, thereby sending him to the Gentiles. (Acts 10:9-16)
theologians believe that the two days Jesus stayed with the
Samaritans, is a type of the Gospel Age – two thousand years
preaching the Gospel to the Gentiles! (2 Pet. 3:8)
our Lord continued to preach the Gospel and work miracles in Jesus’
Name, even though they were forbidden to do so by the religious
authorities in the face of imprisonment and death. (Acts 4:16-21)
worked miracles through the ministry of lay people like Stephen
who were only deacons (Acts 7:5-8) and used the common people to
spread the Gospel during times of great persecution. (Acts 8:1-5)

poverty, severe testing and great persecution!
BACK INTO THE CHURCH!
Protestant Reformation altered the balance of power in Europe. The
Gospel of Christ began to triumph again!Martin
shook the Roman Catholic conglomerate, when he opposed many of its
corrupt practices! And great revivals broke loose, bringing wonderful
liberty and Holy Ghost joy to millions, against the objections of a
powerful ruling church and state!
Knox, Count Zinzendorf, John and
Charles Wesley, George Whitefield, D.L. Moody, Charles Finney,
William Booth and
other great evangelists proved that God was not through working among
men, spearheading revivals that shook the world.
Lake, Charles S. Price, T.L.Osborn, Jack Coe, Gordon Lindsay, Oral

this point in time, millions of people from all major denominations
upon the face of the earth are being filled with the Holy Spirit,
speaking in tongues in a great charismatic revival!

the African continent, recently conducted a crusade in Nigeria with

a nine - year ban following a Muslim riot that killed hundreds of

faith demand to receive 900 per cent return in souls for everything
the devil stole during those nine years.
“At first we averaged 100,000 people coming for salvation each
“Later the weekly average jumped to a million”
religious leaders would like to stop the revival if they could, but
it cannot be quenched. It burns on in Holy Ghost flame and fire!
God is working His miracles today, despite and in spite of the
foolishness of man's narrow and restricted vision and misconceptions
- Praise the Living Christ!
4 – GOD HAS NOT FAILED.
CANNOT FAIL. HE WILL NOT FAIL!
man has failed in everything he has tried to do, God is perfect and
has never failed. He cannot fail and He will not fail! King
Solomon, in his anointed dedicatory prayer made the statement, “Not
one word of all His good promises has failed”.
(1 Kings 8:56)
has not failed, He cannot fail and He will not fail! It is
impossible for God to fail!
CANNOT DENY HIMSELF!
“God cannot deny
Himself for He is Faithful that promised!(2
Tim. 2:13) The Scripture says: “The
callings of God are without repentance”. (Rom.

28:20) No wonder St. Peter declared that we are “...kept
by the power of God through faith...”
(1 Peter 1:5)
cannot divorce God’s presence from His power! Many desire God’s
presence with them, but they do not expect Him to effectively use His
power to work a miracle for them.
cannot separate the healing, saving, delivering and keeping power of
God from His ever-abiding presence!
You can always depend upon the Lord because of His faithfulness and
song writer penned the words:“Jesus
never fails - Jesus never fails - Heaven and earth shall pass away,
but Jesus never fails!”God
has not failed in the past, is faithful now and cannot and will not
fail in the future. What a glorious truth and what an Almighty God
we serve. Hallelujah!
REMAINS FAITHFUL STILL!
among we humans there are gross contradictions or seeming
contradictions as situations change, attitudes change and positions
change to adapt to the new realities of life.
so with God - He
is changeless and His purposes, aims and goals forge ahead unabated!

HOWEVER, DOES NOT CHANGE and cannot deny Himself. St. Paul declares,
"Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds;
but the word of God is not bound."
(2 Tim. 3:10)
cannot destroy, bind or nullify the Word of God. The Bible says,
Scripture cannot be broken" (John
"The Word of God is quick and powerful, and sharper than any two

4:12) Certainly we can trust the Word of God for time and eternity!
we believe not, yet He remaineth faithful; He cannot deny Himself."
(2 Tim. 3:13) Even though we fail Him, His Word is still true and He

GOD BE TRUE!
what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of
God without effect? God forbid: Yea, let God be true, but every man

God fail? Can He fail? Will He fail? Certainly not!
Is He trustworthy? Can we depend upon Him? Most
certainly we can!
The Scripture states that even if some do not believe, that does not
nullify the Word of God! Then St. Paul comes on strong: "GOD
let God be true and every man be a liar!

Cross, and embracing the false Christ (John 5: 43) during the first

God will still forgive Israel and bring them into the fold, because
of His Covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
which He will not break under any circumstances.
Praise the Lord!
a great, good and wonderful God we serve and how thankful we should
be for His grace, mercy and long suffering towards us!
ALWAYS FULFILLS HIS WORD!
Repeatedly, we read
in the Holy Scriptures: "...that
it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets."
(Matt. 1:21; 2:17)
can be absolutely certain that whatever the prophets declared would
come to pass, shall come to pass!
is no doubt about the veracity of God's Word. When you read in the
Holy Bible: "Thus
saith the Lord..."
You can be absolutely certain that it will happen - it will come to
pass. Again, we read often "...and
it shall come to pass..."
no mistake about it, whatever God has declared, He will do! Let us
look briefly at only a few verses of Scripture to back up these

and it shall be given you, seek and you shall find, knock and it
shall be opened unto you, for everyone who asks receives, he that
seeks finds and to him who knocks, it shall be opened.”
on praying, seeking and knocking and the answer will come! After
asking, prayerfully search the Scriptures to have a foundation for
your request, as well as your own heart to draw close to God. Then,
keep on knocking on Heaven’s door! -Max
