Painting by Darlene Dine
This painting portrays a time everyone
experiences in our walk with Him, if we are truly in that walk, and is
the outward expression of what Darlene describes in her opening
comments. If we had the artistic talent of Darlene, we each might
paint a different picture, but they would all give the same
message. Because it is of a seemingly depressing representation of
personal experience, not many could identify with it. However,
when these times come, they are in reality, the most powerful times
in our life of His changing us from glory to glory. We cannot
come to life without going through the death. Hardly a popular,
money grabbing message.
There are those that have never really "come to our Messiah", but think they have, and those who have come, but have never gone through and beyond His Cross. These shall be "trampled under foot" in the days ahead. We can go through this "Cross Experience" now, OR GO THROUGH IT THEN!!! If you have never experienced what Darlene writes, YOU NEED TO BE CONCERNED over your positional condition. If you have, you need to Praise Jah for His mercy to you.
Darlene is in the picture, but barely seen, as in these times we feel as though we are nothing. There is a light off in the distance, but does little good for where we are standing.
This is a message for those who have been called, and severely dealt with. This will let you know that you are NOT the only one who has gone through such experiences, and more importantly, WHY!
I cannot write, things so jumbled up in my mind.
So much there, but no spirit breathed upon it to bring it to
life. I am in a place of
waiting, where my prayers seem empty and my direction is only a fog of
uncertainty. I look at
myself and wonder, how can I be so poor, blind and naked?
How can I be so full of pride and full of myself?
I act as though I have everyone’s answers…when I do not even
have my own. Maybe we
aren’t supposed to (have all our answers).
Not much comfort in this place of death.
This is the place of judgment.
The end of ourselves.
I think of past opportunities that came and went and battle accusations of the mind…knowing their source. I seem to go in a direction against all reason. All that seems happy and good as if I do not want what is “good.” But, OH how I do! Just not at the expense of living a lie in hopes of making it true. We are not real and do not desire to walk in truth. Another pagan holiday approaching…give us something to celebrate…for it is too painful to mourn. Let us have fun! We will worry of the consequences tomorrow. Of course we Christianize the holiday so it’s acceptable. We must see Him as a One who would not bring calamity, but make “nice” everything concerning us. Isn’t that His final end? Yet, we want our own version of “nice.” This “heavenly life” will not come about without death coming first. For the reality of it is seen in the passing away of this world. This is a message to the church (ekklesia), the called out ones.
We will finally see the truth that in our flesh dwells NO good thing. Can we come to grips with that? Isn’t that what the salvation message is all about? It is NOT a correction or “straightening up” of the old man that needs to take place. It is his elimination! Except a seed fall to the ground, it will not live again. Yahshua cannot burst through our tomb of death in resurrection power until we are found weeping, looking into it. Facing the reality of death and the end of all that we can do or be. Judgment is the indictment Yahweh has made on our fallen nature, the old man. The cross is his only answer.
Judgment is the reality we need to face, coming into agreement with the Holy One of Israel that you must die in order to live in Yahshua. How do we do this while blood is pumping through our bodies and we are “physically” very much alive? The word tells us to “consider (reckon)” ourselves to be dead (Rom. 6:11). This is a spiritual mystery. If you have come into agreement with this indictment of your fleshly, earthly man…you have come into agreement with what Yahweh declares. Your flesh is at enmity with Yah and His purposes. It cannot obey His commands and it cannot understand or “see” the kingdom that comes down from heaven built on spiritual truths. For it is a spiritual kingdom and not an earthly one. To the carnal mind, everything must make sense, fit into place and be seen before believed. Reasoning's of the mind…foolishness to Yah.
We want no gaps in our understanding, our experiences in this life must draw the picture we want to see and the future we want to create to believe Yahweh loves us. The picture we need to paint on the canvas of our minds to trust Him. We will discover in the life of Job, the inability of the carnal mind to “make sense” of it all. The final death to our “theologies” and “knowledge” which contradicts the spirit of wisdom that is the All-Knowing One.
We will also see the reaction and words of Yahshua at the time of Lazarus’ death. I believe this is where the church is at this hour in history. And we will, like Mary, be angry that He has delayed His coming. “If you would have been here, my brother would not have died!” Indicting the King of Kings Himself! We, in our foolishness dare to judge Yahweh and the purposes that have been laid from the foundations of the world. Still wanting to “be as God.”
We will also explore the earthly ideas that have so permeated our minds and distorted the truth. These ideas have also infiltrated the church; these false doctrines of Jezebel have kept us away from a burning light called judgment.
The following teaching is a difficult one. I have started to do it several times, only to stop and pray more. Born out of spirit and not flesh, this truth will bring us into a place we may not want to go. Our own garden of Gethsemane where we declare His will to be done and not our own, even if this requires our death. Only then can resurrection come and only then can “Thy Kingdom” come where He alone is glorified. His kingdom is established in a reality called eternity. This is where YHWH lives and dwells and has His being. May we be caught up together into His very throne room as we hear what the spirit is saying to us at this time of the end. This time of devastation…this time of no understanding…this time when judgment unfolds. It is the end, but also the beginning…of life everlasting.
Like most things in this
world, we have not built our lives on the foundation of eternity, even
as believers. Our
perspectives are self-centered. We
have become gods orchestrating our own universe and have created a
reality of our pleasing. It
is not just the world’s actions I describe, but the church’s as
well. We have designed
programs to appeal to the very flesh we proclaim crucified.
We glorify men and teachings that keep the flesh very much alive.
We foster covetousness and an attitude towards Yahweh as some
kind of Lord who will bow down to us and our every demand!
This we proclaim to be faith.
Simply believe and He will– so convenient to require nothing of

Simply believe and He will– so convenient to require nothing of us.
Now it comes time when the foundations will be revealed for what they are. Everything that can be shaken will be shaken and that which is left standing is eternal. For if the testing does not come, how will we know what we stand on is true? How is it revealed, but by testing?
Of course the church (at large) believes that we will be spared from this hour of testing. This time that Yahshua declared to be perilous and unmatched by any other calamity in history. (Isn’t it odd that He did not say immediately following His description of these times that we were not to worry about it because we would not be here…we would be raptured? Instead He gives instructions on how to pray, what to be warned of, etc.)
If the pre-tribulation rapture is one of the mistaken foundations by which you have fallen prey to, I would encourage you to do some serious studying on this subject. I cannot include in this teaching the details of the rapture theory and why it does not hold water. It is not the goal of this series to cover this subject. However I will say this…it is a theory and not truth! I have listed resources (at the end) to help you study this subject out for yourself . The hard-hearted may be in the middle of the great tribulation before they let go of this deception. Quite simply, this is a carnal way of making the end times fit in with our self-centeredness.
So, if I am saying that there is no pre-tribulation rapture, then I am saying we have to face the judgment of a Holy Yahweh as a CHURCH? Yes and this temple (made with hands) will be destroyed! It is only in the coming destruction that we will find out the truth from the lie, where an ultimate separation of light and darkness will rent the heavenlies in the battle of the ages. All that has been hidden will be revealed. Judgment will begin in the house of Yahweh.
It is His people who have been called out, given gifts far exceeding the treasures of this world and given the truths of His kingdom that will be held accountable for how they used these things. It is His House that has been given the charge to uphold a standard of holiness reflecting His character to a world engulfed in darkness. It is His House that claims to “see,” so their sin is very much before Him. Why do we have knowledge? Isn’t it given so that we may be transformed into Yahshua’s likeness? So that our lives will give HIM glory!?! Instead it has puffed up the body with pride! And now in full view we can see the ugliness of that pride, first in ourselves and then corporately. Yahweh judges severely those closest to Him and His ways.
We must prepare our
hearts for the correction, humbling and repentance that awaits us all.
This is no time for pride, which only causes blindness.
The blind were the Scribes and Pharisees of Yahshua’s time.
The most righteous, the ones who claimed to be “the spiritual
leaders.” The ones who
were displaying acts of righteousness before a sinful, unholy society.
The standard so to speak. But
Yahshua spoke and pronounced judgment on them time and time again in His
passionate desire to bring them to repentance.
They would not hear of it…even when He called them, “of their
Father, the devil!” You
see the foundation of the church has never changed.
It is still the apostle and the prophet.
Reject them and you align yourself
with the lie.
Today, it is the “authority” of the church (Jezebel’s Babylon) that seeks to overthrow the authority of King Yahshua! When has there ever been a governmental system in the church by which the prophet of Yahweh was in submission to? Quite the contrary existed; the church was in submission to the Apostle and the Prophet. David the King submitted to the word of the prophet. A prophet’s training is one only known to Yahweh, administered by His hand in a wilderness of His choosing. Acts of humiliation that pulverize the ego bringing one into complete obedience and death. A rejection by men that few will ever endure.
The authority of the “temple” during Yahshua’s time was in conflict with Him. He was asked questions like, “By whose authority do you do these things?” They arrogantly believed, “If He did not have their approval and validation, then surely He was not of Yahweh!” The prophet not serving in the temple (John the Baptist) coming in the spirit of Elijah is the one who will AGAIN give confirmation to His ministry in the latter days. They know Him most intimately and will recognize Him and His purposes when He comes. He did not enter the church to be baptized into His ministry…HE WENT TO THE PROPHET IN THE WILDERNESS! The prophet will be shut out of the “church” systems of this world and live a life in the wilderness. He absolutely CANNOT stomach corruption! His messages are those of bringing people to change and repentance.
The same scenario is taking place at this time before His second coming. A display of righteousness that is falsehood. A decorating of the church as an “entity” to be worshipped above YHWH. An authority not to be questioned even if it conflicts with the purposes of the King. A standard…so to speak lacking the very character of Yahshua. An appearance of fruit that has already been cursed and commanded to die. This false just as before will take on the form of anti-messiah and plan to wipe out the real (for the good of all humanity of course). Opposing again the Anointed One. The enemy using the “good” intents of man…his carnal mind to eliminate the King of Kings. Satan knows the establishment of Yahshua’s Kingdom is the end of his own.
Of course, just as in the dwelling of Messiah upon the earth…the foundations have been moved. He comes to restore and He will again NOT be popular with those who defend the traditions that have developed over the years. They will seek to discredit His spirit in His people, they will seek to stone and eliminate Him. But He will come never the less. There will be those like Peter who will think they are defending Him, when in all reality their carnality and blind pride will prove to deny Him. The true prophetic word will always come to pass regardless of who we think we are in our arrogance.
The prophet will find himself rejected by those who do not want to see the truth. He will be an agent of change preparing the way and none of us like change because it requires a facing of ourselves in a light we would rather not stand in. It requires being corrected and none of us want that either. We want to be loved, accepted! We want to hide from the truth and ourselves. We don’t understand that the greatest love a person can offer is to speak the truth. They risk not being loved in return, the deepest human need we have.
Yahshua will come in a wake of judgment and fury. He is known to an immature bride only as redemption. The restoration of the prophetic ministry will prepare the way. Yahshua’s eyes are like flames. His sword of truth divides between soul and spirit. Who can withstand His appearing when we do not even submit to the light of His truth now? There will come a time when the past, present and future will no longer be separate and sin will reap its horrific consequences. Judgment brings forth the devastation of sin. The showing of it in the light for which it needs to be shown. The hatred of it for it is destruction! The putrid smell of pride and of SELF that reeks to heaven in a stench that appalls a Holy Yahweh. Does it appall us, enough to encounter our wrath upon it?
Sin has not taken too much judgment from us. Rather the conscience of many seared for a lack of judgment. An “its all up to your own personal choice” attitude has swept over the world and the church. What happened to the commandments? What happened to His Holy word? It has been interpreted to fit our messages of “the good life.” No accountability, no discipleship, no speaking of truth lest it offend. A religion of convenience, obedience to man that takes precedence over obedience to Yahweh. A society where no authority exists, but one of self-rule.
The golden calf was a creation by the Israelites of a “god” of their choosing and their control. It was fashioned by a priest who would do the people’s bidding. They did not have to wait on the words and purposes of the Holy One who delivered them, but could serve and worship a god that they themselves created and could appease. They called it Yahweh…and declared it to be the ONE who delivered them. This is what we also fall prey to while waiting the receiving of our requirements from a Holy Yahweh. The waiting of our maturity and responsibility. Idolatry is rampant in our world and in our churches. We have created a god of convenience just as the Israelites did. It was fierce judgment that fell on them.
The Levites (who were also those chosen to teach Torah) were ordered to go through the camp and execute judgment with a sword destroying all those who were part of this idolatry. The covenant was broken. “All that Yahweh has spoken, we will do,” the people proclaimed to Moses. While waiting for him to return with the requirements, their trust failed them. The distance between themselves and Yahweh made way for a false god to be birthed. They placed the temporary above the eternal. This was the betrothal to the Bridegroom! But Israel could not wait. She did not know this Yahweh and His attribute of holiness. She did not understand her part as His bride and SELF took over.
Without Yahweh’s teaching and instructions (Torah), His fiery law in pure form coming from His Holy Mountain, we create something else to trust in. We do not know how to please our husband. We give the worship, which is rightfully His to the enemy of our souls. Our disobedience has cost us so much as His people, but its cost Yahweh even more. So you see He must judge. For it brings Him glory. Judgment manifests Yahweh’s righteousness. Judgment is based on AUTHORITY even though it contains power.
He was known to the Israelites as both redemption and judgment! On one hand the red sea came crashing down on Pharaoh’s army. A way of deliverance blasted through the waters with the other hand. Yahweh uses judgment to save the world. The cross saves not because it avoids judgment. No, the salvation of the cross does not set aside judgment; on the contrary, the cross saves because it is itself a judgment. Yet many do not know Him in judgment.
The LORD is known by
the judgment He executes; (Ps. 9:16a)
For when Your
judgments are in the earth, The inhabitants of the world will learn
righteousness. (Is. 26:9b)
Judgment carries the power for us not just to know Yahweh, but to know ourselves as well. It exposes all that is hidden. All will see Him face to face, but we will also stand in the revelation of who we truly are as well. This is a reality I want in my life now. To be false is to be hidden from His searching light. This fire of Yah has the power to burn, but not consume. It destroys sin.
[As a side note, I believe there are different places that we can stand with Yahweh. Just as the relationship of community, family and marriage differ in their intimacy levels. This is what I mean when I refer to levels in this explanation. I believe our obedience is a choice revealing whom we trust and serve. When the Israelites were told to wash their garments, this was an issue of obedience. A preparing of themselves to meet with Him. We separate ourselves; Yah does not do this for us.
YHWH then summons Moses to the top of the mountain, along with Aaron (who does not go all the way), but not the priests and the people. I included this to clarify that while it is our responsibility to move toward YHWH and to submit to His changing us from glory to glory, there is a place of standing we will have before Him for our protection. I have heard it taught that since the veil was rent in two that all could come and go freely from the Most Holy Place. I disagree with this idea for it makes Yah’s holiness to be a light thing. I believe the Most Holy Place is set apart to commune with YHWH in a most intimate way, being holy and precious. Parallels can be seen through the “top of the mountain” where Moses stood and the bedroom for a marriage couple. It is not a place that ALL have made the commitment in the relationship to enter (though Yahshua’s blood has made the way). The Most Holy Place is exactly THAT! A HOLY PLACE. To enter it at an immature level would be destructive to the relationship just as sex before marriage destroys the respect one has for another. You make yourself very vulnerable to that person and reveal your nakedness. This privilege is then counted as worthless. Yahweh protected the people by not allowing them to come that close to Him knowing the destruction it would bring to any future relationship for He is Holy and they did not know His ways.
25 'And if you make
Me an altar of stone, you shall not build it of hewn stone; for if you
use your tool on it, you have profaned it.
26 'Nor shall you go
up by steps to My altar, that your nakedness may not be exposed on it.'
Yahweh always gave very specific instructions to protect that which is holy.
We will be on our faces in this part of the temple! The high priest only wore plain white linens and no priestly garments at ALL! He entered only once a year on the Day of Atonement to offer a blood sacrifice for the sins of the people and Himself. Again we see a picture of redemption and judgment. Those who know Yahweh in judgment will have a great love for His redemption. For we cannot see true salvation without seeing our hopeless condition before Him. And in that moment, He embraces us and we are caught up in His glory, nothing existing of ourselves but to worship Him.
In the outer court the light is natural; in the holy place it is artificial, man made light; but in the holiest of all there is neither natural nor artificial light; there is only the light of the glory of Yah. Consequently the judgment there will be the most severe.
It was not my intention to make this a long side note, but I feel this point must be made. JUDGMENT is part of entering this Most Holy Place. For your flesh must die and your spirit ONLY can enter. No SELF in any form can exist there for the very presence of Yah would consume it (there can be ONLY ONE GOD in His glory). This is why I believe that man was banned from the garden after becoming self-aware. It was a form of judgment. What exists in the Most Holy Place? Yahweh’s presence and the very throne in which He rules. The Ark of the Covenant where the tablets of stone are kept (marriage covenant). The mercy seat by which our marriage is made whole and an eternal covenant has been established.
In conclusion, these different places or levels are not because of our ‘super spirituality’ but quite the opposite. They are a coming into Him and a dieing of self in the process. This could not take place with the Israelites at this time of not knowing Yahweh or His ways. The giving of His Torah was a means to an end. A knowing how to please Him as His bride, this brings us to the top of the mountain with the power of Yahshua’s life in us to carry out Torah’s requirements.]
Another meeting on His Holy Mountain is taking place and His instructions are being given to those who would look into the face of a Holy Yahweh in the wake of His judgment. A giving of the written Torah and a command to obey it, preserve it and teach it to all generations. A restoration of His authority and rule as the time of His kingdom is fast approaching.
to His Holy Mountain is the call.
The foundation, His Holy Torah. If we receive it, we welcome a Yahweh who is a fire, continually burning that does not consume. A circumcision of the heart, cutting away the flesh. On the mountain, our humanity will be smoked out, a passion stirred. No longer will it be, “What can you do for me?” The question changes to, "YHWH, what is your will for me?" What do you require from this marriage? A contract…covenant written in stone. One day it will be written on our hearts for we will obey out of pure love and selfless giving.
The foundation of His throne is sapphire, this blue symbolizing Torah. Pointing the way to truth. He must uphold it or destroy Himself for He has sworn by His own Name. This is faith, steadfastness. Yahweh is looking for those who would worship Him in spirit and in truth. The living waters that flow from His throne are His word made alive. Quickening our spirits to a new dimension in Him, which can only come from a lowering of self. We must decrease so that His life may increase.
The foundation of judgment is simply this; to know a loving Yahweh is to know He will not cast us off forever. He is preparing a bride to be adorned for her Bridegroom. Chastisement comes to those who would be His Sons. For if we do not suffer with Him being conformed to His death, how will we be raised into newness of life seated in heavenly places? To pass under His light of judgment is flesh destroyed. But you are not flesh, the real you is spirit! Come into His marvelous light and behold Him and not yourself. Before the fall, there was no self-awareness! No self apart from Yahweh. There was only His glory surrounding Adam and Eve and they could see Him face to face with no hiding. No flesh can pass through Yahweh’s light and live. It is a separation of soul and spirit. This is the meaning of Holy– be separate. Separated unto Him.
As we move on to another aspect of judgment, reflect on what has been written. There is only One who knows the depths of our heart and the motives and intents by which we live. May we allow the judgment of Our Yahweh Elohim to expose the deepest, most hidden parts of us to His all consuming light. Let Him transform us by the refining work of fire, testing our lives until we come forth as pure gold. Let our hearts be an altar where there burns a perpetual flame lit by His Spirit never to be diminished. Submit to His judgment.
There is an entering into truth that demands an eternal perspective. We must let go of the now to possess the eternal. Following in the footsteps of Our Messiah, Yahshua. When Peter suggested that Yahshua save Himself by NOT going up to Jerusalem, His Master’s reply was one of rebuke! He TURNED (Peter was obviously not looking the same direction as His Master) and said to Peter, “Get behind Me Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of Yahweh, but the things of men.” (Matthew 16:23)
Immediately following this, He tells His disciples, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let Him deny Himself and take up His cross and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses His life for My sake will find it. (Matthew 16:24a)
This is the
perspective. Not the
temporary, but the eternal. A
life that does not exist in the protecting or saving of that which is
here and now. A life only
concerned with the things of Yahweh.
A life that does not seek its own, but finds peace in doing His
will. A martyr is someone
who not only dies for Him, but also portrays the death of self in their
daily lives. When I say
death, I do not mean to say acts of torture brought upon oneself.
This would be a practice of a false religion spawned by the
Jezebel spirit! She
orchestrates punishment for the disfiguration of the character of
Yahweh. She uses
“sacrifice” and the cutting of oneself to break one’s trust in His
I speak of death, I know that it is a transformation into newness of
life. Your lives are hid
with Messiah in Yahweh. When
you choose by an act of your own will to lose this life for the sake of
His, you will find true life. It
is not I who live, but Messiah in me.
The only One who can bring this life out of death.
This death that I speak of is a separation of soul and spirit.
Becoming one with Yahshua in all His fullness. Messiah
in us, our hope of glory.
self-crucifixion of which Jezebel teaches is one of yielding to the
devil. There is never
enough suffering for him and there are no times of joy and gladness.
There is only a feeling that you will never measure up.
A feeling that “what you do” will never be a big enough
sacrifice so you must do more! Controlled
by guilt and the pleasing of her and her offspring!
This is not the cross that Yahshua calls us to.
For this actually discounts the cross and places us in a position
of self-righteousness. Doing
enough…suffering enough…when it is clear that only ONE sacrifice was
accepted and no man can approach upon any other!
we see in the lives of Cain and Abel, one offers what had been provided
and was required by Yahweh…a life.
The other offering the toil of his hands and the sweat of his
brow…a production! Yahweh
has already cursed the fruit of the ground.
That which is born of our fleshly, earthly man.
He brings forth the new city whose Builder and Maker is Yahweh. It comes from above. Many
will not see it as the good and perfect gift because we have our own
definitions of what is good and evil.
The coming of Yahshua’s kingdom will smash and bring sudden
destruction upon all that opposes it.
There will exist NO other kingdoms when His is made manifest!
sacrifice Cain brought placed him under rejection and the “fear of
man” when it was not accepted. This
is Jezebel’s whole plan. To
steal the true sacrifice, your gift from Yahweh, given BY Yahweh.
Placing you in a position where you perform to receive acceptance!
Yahweh has designed His ways to protect us from this
performance-based acceptance for it will always offer defeat and
rejection and lead us on a path of pride and self-righteousness.]

|Darlene has written with a
remarkable balance. She shows the seriousness of our walk, and yet
accurately displays that which concerns the realm of grace and the
"no condemnation". Few write with this balance.
Many think that being serious with Jah is an option. It IS NOT! We have entered the time period that is going to prove this to us with great reliability.
We must come to the place where we are not afraid to realize, and admit, we are all just people. We may long to come out of every unrighteous thing, but cannot find the "will" within to do so. We ALL have our weaknesses, frailties, and shortness. By "all", I certainly am including myself. How I identify with Paul when he says, "Oh wretch that I am".
We must come out of the fallen ego's self righteous, self justifying religion, throw away the "fig leaf cover up", and grow to be acutely aware of how our trying to become "righteous" before Jah by our own efforts is nothing more than a lesson in futility. Then in seeing our own shortness, give space to others for theirs. As I said, we are all just people trying to find our way, and it is time to come out of religion and let everyone just be who and what they are while putting off the pointing of the finger in accusation and condemnation. We will NEVER be brought out of our isolations and gathered together until this is worked in us, for the enemy would use this rotten ground to divide us within thirty days.
Paul makes an incredible statement that few have caught up with as of yet.
I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. 21I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
These few words are LOADED with revelation in the Grace of Jah to us ward who believe. What is my main point of this scripture at this time? That he LIVED BY THE FAITH of Jahshuwah. How many understand and recognize that our Messiah is WORKING IN FAITH on our behalf??? He died for us IN FAITH, and is now loosing His faith to work HIS REDEMPTION IN US!!! Paul knew his shortness, and in that recognized the work being done in him was not of his own doing, but yet of another, even our Messiah. If I personally did not resort to this faith when the Light shines upon me, I would with Paul, fear that I myself would be a "Cast-a-way".
None of us would be where we are today in our development in Him toward His Righteousness, except BY THIS WORK, and that BY HIS FAITH loosed on our behalf. Darlene has with wonderful integrity described to us HOW THIS WORK IS ACCOMPLISHED, and what we shall experience as He does this work in us who will yield in submission to Him and His Cross.
If you can understand what she has written, and can readily identify with it, then you should be PRAISING JAH MIGHTILY, for He has granted unto you the most wonderful gift anyone could receive from Him. What is that??? TRUE SALVATION!!!
