“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”
King James Version (KJV)

Genesis 25 - 32: 32:28
May the HOLY SPIRIT lead you in all truth & guidance.
Andy G van den Berg's comment on 2020-09-11 15:11:11:
If you should decide to start your journey of Repentance and turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18), we strongly suggest that you start by disposing of your collection of worldly books (Acts 19:18,19), containing strictly worldly wisdom that is after the wisdom of men but not after God (1 Cor. 2:4-7), and that has you in such terrible bondage.
Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).
In His Service.

hello, so in verse 17 where it reads "and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written"
does that mean we are given a new name?
or what is the new name he's referring too?

Andy G van den Berg on Revelation 25's comment on 2020-08-10 11:43:28:
The Word of God is God (John 1:1) and is not of any private interpretation (2 Peter 1:20).
The word 'Repent' in different forms (repent, repentance, repented, repentest, repenteth, repenting, repentings) is mentioned 110 times in the KJV, and means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. The word 'repent' used in the New Testament was translateed from the Greek word "metanoeo", and means to change, transform, to think differently or reconsider.
It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).
For a better understanding and the 'spiritual truth' of what it means to repent, and learn how and by whom mankind has been deceived (Rev. 12:9) and what people must do to be reunited with the true and living God, we invite you to seek Him according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive (Matthew 7:7; John 14:17).
You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), as mankind follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).
It is only by revelation of God that people will come to know the true Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Gal. 1:16; Eph. 3:3,5; Rev. 1:1), and only then will you be able to overcome the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4; Rev. 3:21) and learn what 'True Repentance' means, and how this whole world has been deceived (Rev. 12:9). It should also be remembered that it is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).
LUKE 15:10. LIKEWISE, I SAY UNTO YOU, THERE IS JOY IN THE PRESENCE OF THE ANGELS OF GOD OVER ONE SINNER THAT REPENTETH

rescue the perishing care for the ding he snatch us with in pity from sin unto grace
by faith we have made hole put your trust in God,
Mishael's comment on 2020-07-31 22:24:24:
"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9
Pray this prayer with sincerity of heart
"Dear God, I believe in you and that your Son, Jesus Christ, is Lord. I believe in His sacrifice for my sins and His resurrection from the dead. I repent and ask forgiveness for my sins and I'm deciding now to follow you. Please, come into my life through the gift of your Holy Spirit. It is in the Lord Jesus' name that I ask and receive, Amen."
The Bible says doing these things with sincerity means you are a Christian (Christ follower) and will have eternal life in heaven.
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." 1 John 5:13
(Use caution in trusting your feelings, as feelings change. Stand on God's promises- they never change.)

The other thief on the cross wanted Jesus to save them both by the means of this world.
He was rejected.

Olivia's comment on 2020-07-31 06:13:27:
I don't want to go back and forth Chris. I'm sorry. I'm just trying to understand and make it make sense. If they break down your door and say they are taking you and family because you guys refused to take the "vaccine" chip and then they take you to a fema camp then kill you and your family then what? When you possibly could've avoided it by fighting back?..... its crazy I know but I need most is God and to protect my babies.!
Olivia's comment on 2020-07-31 06:05:05:
Hey Chris. Yes that helped to a point but if you wanted to protect yourself and they bust in in the middle of the night, you can't use a gun or something to protect yourself and your children? no matter if your going to win or not? That makes no sense.
Olivia's comment on 2020-07-31 05:49:40:
No i haven't. But what does that have to do with the question I asked?
Mishael's comment on 2020-07-31 02:05:00:
Chito or Cheeto?

Did you hear the reviews from that chito Mexican gang about the word of God SPOKEN with Authority and a spice of grace over at 12 stones CHURCH a while back? Classic.
Chris's comment on 2020-07-11 02:18:34:
Olivia, I believe you're referring to a comment initiated by Maryann a couple of months ago. If that is the case, I was addressing the matter of non-violence & non-retaliation, as prescribed in God's Word. Take time to read the following Scriptures: Matthew 5:38-44; Luke 6:27-38; and Romans 12:14-21.
So, these portions of Scripture tell us how Christians are to behave or respond when trouble comes our way. However, we should do all in our power to protect ourselves, our children & our property from wicked perpetrators. But what the Bible teaches is that we must not go on the attack, or repay evil with evil, or in any way do what Christ would not do. The only ones empowered by God to pronounce judgement & give out a penalty is the government. Often even they don't administer it correctly, but that is another matter.
Maybe your question is: "then how can we protect ourselves?" Are we talking about the authorities under instruction from an anti-Christian govt. coming to take you & your children because of your faith? Then I doubt neither you nor I could do much at all given their position & strength. We need to submit & trust God for the outcome. Or else, what would be your plans to oppose them? Using a gun? How far would that get you against the police or army?
But if you're thinking of a criminal breaking into your house or accosting you on the street, then you are authorized by law to protect yourself, but restricted by the amount of force used. Then again, how does one know what crime is intended to be committed? Does any of this help you, or have I missed your point?
Olivia's comment on 2020-07-10 22:35:24:
Chris, so your saying to not retaliate when they take us and our children out of our homes? Just let them take us?
Joshua's comment on 2020-05-10 18:43:24:
Amen brother, well said! I believe it's the same as it always has been for believers/saints - Jesus gives us the ability to suffer for his name. We cannot do it without his strength and grace. But with Christ we can do and endure all the things that were impossible for us before. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." - Philippians 4:12
