Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
And to any other country that does not have peace today or are a part of the evil going on all around the world today.
I am not a president or government official of any kind. I am just a citizen of America who wants nothing more than the best for all of you.
Put on the armor of light and wake up. Be silent no more. Rulers exist for the benefit of society. But when rulers use their authority for evil then obey God rather than man. Love one another because he that love another has fulfilled the law.
I write this in hope that someone, that is in one of many countries with so much evil going on, will somehow read this and God would work through them to do what is needed to be done for the good of their society. It is written in the Bible that God will raise up a revenger to execute wrath upon him that do evil.
Love others as you would want them to also love you. This should be the law of the world. Peace not war. Do not offend others. Respect others and their right to live in peace just as all have that right. I am not asking anyone to convert to Christianity. It is not in my ability to do that only God knows who will come to Him. I am asking for you to do good not evil.
Why would you want your people in your country to always be at war with one another? Would it not be better if there was peace? Where there is no more killing. It is within your power, with God's help, to have that. The people must rise up above those who would do evil. You know who they are. It has been going on long enough. We are about to start a new year. Won't you do it in peace? Start the new year with hope, peace, and love for one another. Do you want war for your children or peace? A place where children can grow up with love and not hate. A place where your children can play outside without the threat of being blown up or shot. You can have this! Join together as one people. A people of love and not a people of hate. I pray that this will come to pass as we start the new year. May God Bless you all in every country on this beautiful earth.
14: And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.
16: For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18: He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19: And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20: For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21: But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
1: Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.
2: Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
3: For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same:
4: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
5: Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
6: For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.
7: Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.
8: Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.
9: For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
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 fulfill the lusts thereof.
Your Friend in the U.S.A., Michael.
