    Peace unto you.


    A man’s belly shall be satisfied with the “fruit of his mouth”.

    Proverbs 18:20-21 KJV
    (20) A man's belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of his lips shall he be filled.

    Death and life are in the power (the hand) of the tongue and they that love it shall eat the fruit of it. We are to choose life and not death. We are to take ahold of eternal life in this earth.

    (21) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

    Those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart and they (the things that come out of the mouth) defile the “man”. It defiles the mortal body.

    Matthew 15:17-20 KJV
    (17) Do not ye yet understand, that whatsoever entereth in at the mouth goeth into the belly, and is cast out into the draught?
    (18) But those things which proceed out of the mouth come forth from the heart; and they defile the man.
    (19) For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:


    The things that come out of the mouth defile the man. But NOT following after the tradition (transmission, precepts, handwriting of ordinances) of the church elders do not defile a man.

    (20) These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.

    The church scribes and “Pharisees” (meaning “separated”) are busy condemning others who do not follow after their respective handwriting of church ordinances that the church scribes (the church elders) have engraved for them to serve and worship just as the scribes and Pharisees did with the disciples of Jesus who they thought “transgressed” the tradition of the elders by not washing their hands when they ate bread. They judged them over the tradition of their elders. Judging others over carnal commandments is not doing the commandment of God to have love for one another. It is transgressing the commandment of God by our carnal commandments as we use them to judge others who do not keep them.

    Matthew 15:1-3 KJV
    (1) Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,
    (2) Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.
    (3) But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?


    The handwritings of church dogmas written by the church scribes are contrary to us getting along. The church scribes’ handwritings cause divisions among us. The “Pharisees” are separated into church “denominations”. They separate themselves using the handwriting of church dogmas in doing so….and using it to judge others who do not keep their church teachings and commandments of men.

    Beware of any man who tries to lead you astray from the teaching of Christ (who teaches and commands us to have love for one another as He loved us). Beware of any man who comes teaching for doctrines the carnal commandments of men…his handwriting of church dogmas…which are after the “tradition of men” which are patterned after the elements (the ABC’s) of the world. The world’s governments have its “constitutions” and “statutes” that they fight each other over. The world has its elements (rudiments) because they do not profess to know God nor can they please God. The fleshly mind of those of the world cannot please God.

    As James Madison once stated: “If men were angels, no government would be necessary. If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.”

    Colossians 2:8 KJV
    (8) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.


    Let no man judge you in meat, or in drink or in respect of a holy day, etc. Let no man judge you with his handwriting of church ordinances that he has wrested out of the Scriptures with his vainly puffed up fleshly mind which has no understanding of what he is teaching or of what he is affirming of.

    Colossians 2:16-23 KJV
    (16) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
    (17) Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

    (18) Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
    (19) And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.


    If we are dead with Christ from the elements of the world, why as though living in the world we are subjecting ourselves to church ordinances (dogmas) which men have patterned after the elements of the world?

    (20) Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world, why, as though living in the world, are ye subject to ordinances,

    The woman in the garden added her own carnal commandment to God's: "neither shall you touch it".

    (21) (Touch not; taste not; handle not;
    (22) Which all are to perish with the using after the commandments and doctrines of men?
    (23) Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility, and neglecting of the body; not in any honour to the satisfying of the flesh.


    When we serve and worship the handwriting of church ordinances, we are then serving THE sin as we use them to judge others. There is only ONE Lawgiver is able to save and to destroy. Why are we judging others using the carnal “laws” that the church scribes have engraved in stone for their church congregation to serve and worship?

    We are then not a DOER of the Law of Christ (to have love for one another) if we use our church “law” to judge others who do not keep it. Many judge others over what day they worship or what they eat or drink or if they were literally baptized or if they keep the literal Lord’s supper, etc.

    James 4:11-12 KJV
    (11) Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
    (12) There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?


    Remember how the woman in the garden added her own carnal commandment to God’s? She added “neither shall you touch it” and presented it as though God had commanded it when He did not. How many church scribes’ handwritings do the same today?

    Genesis 3:2-3 KJV
    (2) And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden:
    (3) But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.


    Do NOT add to His words….

    Proverbs 30:6 KJV
    (6) Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar
    .

    We must be a DOER of His words and not add to them. He will reprove us if we are not a DOER of the will of the Father: “ I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity”.

    How many believe THE lie that when they are judging others as “devils” for not keeping their church handwritings (their “wonderful works”)? They believe that they are doing it in God’s name (His authority). Many think that they are doing these things in God’s authority as they cast out others as “evil doers”…judging them.

    Matthew 7:21-23 KJV
    (21) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
    (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


    They believe the lie that they are doing God “service” for “killing” others with the sword of their tongues as they speak evil of another…being judge, jury and executioner of another.

    John 16:1-3 KJV
    (1) These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
    (2) They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
    (3) And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.


    They believe THE lie as they exchange the truth of God for THE lie (not "a lie" but THE lie from the beginning) and serve and worship the “formation” (the handwriting of the church scribes) more than the Creator.

    Romans 1:24-25 KJV
    (24) Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
    (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.


    They believe the delusion that they have peace and safety for doing their evil deeds as they judge others using the handwriting of church dogmas.

    The lie: “you shall not surely die”…..should be translated literally “KILLING, you shall not die”.

    Genesis 3:4-6 KJV
    (4) And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:


    Those who “kill” others with the sword of their tongues….judging others…speaking evil of others….think that they are doing God service (the lie: “For God does know…”). They think that God knows and approves of their evil behavior for judging another based on an added carnal commandment (the woman in the garden: “neither shall you touch it”).

    The lie: “your eyes shall be opened”….that is, you shall be seen as wise. Professing themselves as “wise”, they became fools as they exchange the truth of God for THE lie and worship and serve the carnal commandments of men contained in their church scribe’s handwriting.

    The lie: “you shall be as gods knowing good and evil”….that is, you shall be as JUDGES. A judge knows who is good and evil (the knowledge of good and evil). They think that they are judging others in God’s name those who do not keep their carnal commandments of men that are wrested out of the Scriptures to their own destruction.

    (5) For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.

    Being desirous of vain glory….wanting to be seen as wise, they take of the fruit and do eat….as they are busy judging others continuously using their carnal commandment (i.e. “neither shall you touch it”). They take pleasure in their unrighteousness….it was pleasant to the eyes. Yet, the fruit of those things is death.

    Many today are serving THE sin as they want to be seen as “wise” and open their mouths to speak evil of another…judging another…using the carnal commandments and teachings of fleshly-minded men. They are partaking of the fruit of death as they do so….”eating” from that tree. They think that they are "wise" and judge others using with their handwriting of church dogmas which is serving sin.

    (6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.

    Let us not be desirous of vain glory….wanting to be seen as wise…and provoke one another with our carnal commandments and envying one another.

    Galatians 5:24-26 KJV
    (24) And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
    (25) If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
    (26) Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

    Let us instead obey FROM THE HEART that form of teaching that was delivered unto us by our Lord and Savior. We are to have love for one another…..not being desirous of vain glory (wanting to be seen as wise) and provoke one another with our judgments… in our envy of another.

    Romans 6:16-22 KJV
    (16) Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
    (17) But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.


    We are made free from THE sin (in Greek: the definite article “THE” appears before sin). Let us no longer serve THE sin in the churches of men which ends in death.

    (18) Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
    (19) I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
    (20) For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.


    The “FRUIT” (as plucked from the wrong tree) ends in death of those church things of which we shall be ashamed of worshipping and serving.

    (21) What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.

    We are to be made free from serving THE sin and become servants to God instead. We are to have our fruit unto holiness and the conclusion of that is everlasting life in this earth. Let us eat of the tree of life instead.

    (22) But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

    Let no man judge you with his church carnal commandments for the LORD is our Judge. There is only ONE Lawgiver…the LORD. The LORD is our King.

    Isaiah 33:22 KJV
    (22) For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.

    Let us stop seeing ourselves as “wise” and letting a man bring us into his church bondage where he exalts himself over us and takes the life of Jesus out of our lives and also takes our money. The LORD is our King.

    2 Corinthians 11:19-20 KJV
    (19) For ye suffer fools gladly, seeing ye yourselves are wise.
    (20) For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.


    Then we shall see the King in His beauty.

    Isaiah 33:17-19 KJV
    (17) Thine eyes shall see the king in his beauty: they shall behold the land that is very far off.

    We shall meditate upon the “terror” that our church “leaders” once instilled in us with their carnal commandments to keep. Where is the church scribe? Where is the “receiver”?…as all churches collect our money. Where is he that counted the towers?

    (18) Thine heart shall meditate terror. Where is the scribe? where is the receiver? where is he that counted the towers?

    We shall no longer subject ourselves to the churches of men where men are a “fierce people” who preach things we cannot understand.

    (19) Thou shalt not see a fierce people, a people of a deeper speech than thou canst perceive; of a stammering tongue, that thou canst not understand.

    Men are as trees.

    Either make the tree good and his fruit good or else make the tree corrupt (rotten, worthless) and his fruit corrupt. It can’t be both. How can we, if we are evil, speak good things? The two do not go together.

    Matthew 12:33-35 KJV
    (33) Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.
    (34) O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
    (35) A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.


    We must be DOERS of the Word and not hearers only, DECEIVING our own selves. If any man among us seems to be “religious” and yet does not bridle his tongue, his religion is worthless…empty (vain). If we think that we are religious (we go to church and keep the church doctrines and commandments) and yet use our tongue to judge another who does not keep our "religious" teachings and commandments, then we are deceiving our own hearts.

    James 1:22-26 KJV
    (22) But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
    (23) For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
    (24) For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
    (25) But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
    (26) If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.


    Many “religious”-seeming men use the same mouth to both bless God AND to curse men which are made after the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth proceeds blessing and cursing which should not be so. We are certainly not blessing God by cursing others with our judgments upon them for not following a carnal commandment.

    James 3:7-18 KJV
    (7) For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
    (8) But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
    (9) Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
    (10) Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.

    (11) Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?


    Can a “FIG tree” bear olive berries? No “fountain” can both yield salt water and fresh. Either make the tree good or make it bad…it cannot be both...no matter if we profess that we know God and go to church religiously. We must PRACTICE His will always....living after the Spirit and not after the flesh in our envy and strife with others who do not practice our "religious" beliefs and commandments and teachings.

    (12) Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

    The woman in the garden wanted to be seen as wise and did eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. She did use her mouth to judge another (being a “judge” who knows who is “good and evil”….who is good and who is an evildoer according to her own knowledge).

    She wanted to show her wisdom (wanting to be seen as wise) and that she was the one endued with knowledge by condemning another with her mouth and using a carnal commandment (“neither shall you touch it”) to do it. The eating of that fruit ends in death of the mortal body for what comes out of the mouth defiles our body. Death and life are in the hand of the tongue and those that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

    How many are doing the same thing today in the churches of fleshly-minded men? How many are deceived into believing and practicing THE lie today? Many love and practice THE lie as they take pleasure in their unrighteousness (it was pleasant to the eyes).

    Yet, those who are truly wise and truly endued with knowledge will show out of their good behavior their works with MEEKNESS of wisdom.

    (13) Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.

    Which is unlike the woman in the garden who listened to the deceptive “wisdom” of the serpent which is “earthly, sensual, devilish” and harbored bitter envy and strife within her heart as she spoke evil of another. Out of envy in the heart do many speak evil of another.

    (14) But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
    (15) This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

    (16) For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

    The wisdom that is above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle…..

    (17) But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
    (18) And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.


    There is no law against the eating of the fruit of the Spirit….which is love, joy, peace, etc. The FRUIT of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. If we always sow according to the Spirit, in due season we shall reap the everlasting life of Jesus in this mortal body.

    Galatians 5:22-24 KJV
    (22) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
    (23) Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

    (24) And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.


    We…the people where the Spirit of God indwells… are to eat of every tree of the garden….against such there is no law.

    We are to eat of the fruit of the Spirit….which is love, joy, peace…. It is a COMMAND to eat of the fruit of the Spirit. In Christ Jesus, the obeying of the law of the Spirit of life shall set us free from the law of THE sin and death.

    Genesis 2:
    (15) And the LORD God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
    (16) And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:


    There is the law of the sin and death....which is the eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. In the day we eat of it, we shall surely die. We do not have peace and safety to “kill” another with our evil speaking as we shall die.

    Let us not use church "law" that a scribe came up with using his puffed up, fleshly mind in killing others with the sword of our tongues....being judge, jury and executioner of another as we condemn others to "hell".

    (17) But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

    A good tree CANNOT bring forth evil fruit neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. It CANNOT be both good and evil. Either make the tree good and its fruit good or make it evil and its fruit evil.

    Matthew 7:18-23 KJV
    (18) A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

    EVERY TREE that does not bring forth good fruit is cut down and cast into the fire. By their fruits we shall know them as they use their tongues for evil.

    (19) Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.
    (20) Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.


    OUTSIDE are those who love and practice THE lie (Revelation 22:15). Not everyone who uses their mouth to say “Lord, Lord” and will not DO His will shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. They will not enter in to know the mysteries of the kingdom….they will not enter in to partake of the tree of life.

    (21) Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

    They are busy condemning others as “devils” supposedly in His name…in His authority…and not using their mouths for good. They condemn all others to “hell” for their sins…and all the while thinking that they are doing these “wonderful works” in His authority rather than DOING His will above.

    (22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
    (23) And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.


    We cannot use “Lord, Lord” only to cover ourselves with. We must bear good fruit and not just fig “leaves” (Lord, Lord) to cover ourselves with. We cannot cover ourselves with the doctrines and commandments of men that many set aside His commandment to keep instead.

    Genesis 3:
    (6) And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
    (7) And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.


    Let us not love in word, neither in tongue but in deed and in truth.

    1 John 3:18 KJV
    (18) My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in trut
    h.

    We must bring forth good fruit…not just “leaves” only….using our lips to honor Him and yet not DOING His will. He comes walking in the Spirit of the Day (in the “cool of the Day”) and we are to be children of the Day by showing forth our faith in our good deeds towards His voice….and not just “Lord, Lord” only.

    Mark 11:12-14 KJV
    (12) And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:
    (13) And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.
    (14) And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

    The voice of the LORD God walked in the garden in the “cool” …that is, wind or SPIRIT…of the Day. They heard His voice as we do today in the Spirit of Truth. We are to hear His voice and be found by Him walking in the Spirit with Him.

    And yet Adam and his wife hid themselves from His presence in the middle of the TREE (singular not plural in Hebrew) of the garden. They hid in the midst of the tree of life in name only….having a name that they are alive.

    Genesis 3:8-9 KJV
    (8) And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.

    The LORD God called unto Adam and said unto him, “Where are you”? Where is the evidence of your faith?

    (9) And the LORD God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where art thou?

    The church in “Sardis”….meaning “red ones” (interestingly “Adam” means “red”)…has a name that they live but is “dead” as their works are not complete (perfect) before God. If we hear His voice today, we are to have good works….the evidence of our faith….towards His calling us. Let us not hide ourselves behind the name that we are living but have no good works to show as evidence.

    Revelation 3:1-6 KJV
    (1) And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.
    (2) Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.


    The church in Sardis was found with works that were not complete before God. Where are you Adam? Where is your faith? Faith without good works is DEAD. Good works makes our faith complete before God whose voice walks in the Spirit of Truth that we hear.

    (James 2: (22) Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect?)

    We must hear and “awake” to His voice calling us and put on Christ and not fulfill the lusts of the flesh….the envy and strife and contentions towards what we hear His voice saying to us in the Spirit of the Day.

    (3) Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

    We must put on Christ by doing His righteousness so they we may walk with Him in white. We walk with Him in the Spirit.

    (4) Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

    Those who can overcome shall be clothed in white raiment as they will awake to His voice and put on His righteousness and not depart from the living God with an evil heart of unbelief in what they hear. Their names will not be blotted out of the book of life.

    (5) He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
    (6) He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churche
    s.

    Faith alone without good works is dead. The church in Sardis…even though it professes it is alive… is dead because it has no good works towards the hearing of His voice speaking in the Spirit to the churches. Faith without good works is DEAD....the dead church.

    James 2:17-20 KJV
    (17) Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
    (18) Yea, a man may say, Thou hast faith, and I have works: shew me thy faith without thy works, and I will shew thee my faith by my works.
    (19) Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and
    tremble.
    (20) But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?


    The DAY is at hand. The voice of the LORD God walks in the garden in the Spirit of the Day and we are to hear His call and awake to His righteousness by putting on the Lord Jesus Christ and not make provision to act out in the flesh against what we hear His voice saying. We are to hear and cast off the works of darkness and be found walking with Him in the Spirit. We shall walk with Him in white...His righteousness...as we awake to His voice calling us and we show forth the evidence of our faith. Good works completes our faith before God.

    Romans 13:10-14 KJV
    (10) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
    (11) And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
    (12) The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
    (13) Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
    (14) But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
