Indian legend of George Washington’s Divine protection

George-Washington-kneeling-in-prayer

In the decades prior to the Revolutionary War, tensions arose between the two largest global powers: Britain, led by King George II, and France, led by King Louis XV.
Because of their many alliances with other nations, fighting escalated into the first global war – the Seven Years War, or as it was called in America, the French and Indian War. The conflict included every major power in Europe as well as their colonies from the Caribbean, to India, to the Philippines and to Africa. Over a million died. It was sparked by the ambush in 1754 of a French detachment in the Ohio Valley by British militia led by 22-year-old Virginia Colonel George Washington.

At this time the Great Awakening Revival swept through colonial America. A notable dissenting preacher, Samuel Davies, spread revival across racial lines and was heard by many in Virginia, including Patrick Henry, who credited Davies with “teaching me what an orator should be.” George Washington Praying.

In 1755, 1,400 British troops marched over the Appalachian Mountains to seize French Fort Duquesne, near present-day Pittsburgh. One of the wagon drivers was 21-year-old Daniel Boone.

On July 9, 1755, as they passed through a deep wooded ravine along the Monongahela River eight miles south of the fort, they were ambushed by French regulars and Canadians accompanied by Potawatomi and Ottawa Indians. Not accustomed to fighting unless in an open field, over 900 British soldiers were annihilated in the Battle of the Wilderness, or Battle of Monongahela

Col. George Washington rode back and forth during the battle delivering orders for General Edward Braddock, the commander-in-chief of British forces in America. General Braddock was trying to get his soldiers into a formation typical of European warfare, which tragically made them an open target for the French and Indians who were firing from behind trees. Eventually, Braddock was killed and every officer on horseback was shot, except Washington. Washington carried Braddock from the field.

Braddock’s field desk was captured, revealing all the British military plans, enabling the French to surprise and defeat British forces in succeeding battles at Fort Oswego, Fort William Henry, Fort Duquesne and Carillon. These British losses convinced the Iroquois tribes of Senecas and Cayugas to switch their allegiances to the French.

Before he died, Braddock gave Washington his battle uniform sash, which Washington reportedly carried with him the rest of his life, even while commander-in-chief and president. Washington presided at the burial service for General Braddock, as the chaplain was wounded. Braddock’s body was buried in the middle of the road so as to prevent it from being found and desecrated.

Shortly thereafter, writing from Fort Cumberland, George Washington described the Battle of Monongahela to his younger brother, John Augustine Washington, July 18, 1755: “As I have heard, since my arrival at this place, a circumstantial account of my death and dying speech, I take this early opportunity of contradicting the first, and of assuring you, that I have not as yet composed the latter. But by the All-Powerful Dispensations of Providence, I have been protected beyond all human probability or expectation; for I had four bullets through my coat, and two horses shot under me, yet escaped unhurt, although death was leveling my companions on every side of me!”George Washington crossing Delaware Dec 15_1776

Reports of the Battle of Monongahela spread across the country. On July 8, 1755, Mary Draper Ingels had been kidnaped from her home in Draper Meadows, Virginia by a band of Shawnee Indians. She escape in mid-winter, as recorded in her biography, and trekked nearly one thousand miles back home. At one point during her captivity, she overheard a meeting that the Shawnee had with some Frenchmen. They described in detail the British defeat in the battle of Monongahela at Duquesne, and how the Indian Chief Red Hawk claimed to have shot Washington eleven times, but did not succeed in killing him.

Fifteen years later, Washington and Dr. Craik, a close friend of his from his youth, were traveling through those same woods near the Ohio river and Great Kanawha river. They were met by an old Indian chief, who addressed Washington through an interpreter: “I am a chief and ruler over my tribes. My influence extends to the waters of the great lakes and to the far blue mountains. I have traveled a long and weary path that I might see the young warrior of the great battle.

“It was on the day when the white man’s blood mixed with the streams of our forests that I first beheld this Chief. I called to my young men and said, mark yon tall and daring warrior? He is not of the red-coat tribe – he hath an Indian’s wisdom, and his warriors fight as we do – himself alone exposed. Quick, let your aim be certain, and he dies. Our rifles were leveled, rifles which, but for you, knew not how to miss – `twas all in vain, a power mightier far than we, shielded you.

“Seeing you were under the special guardianship of the Great Spirit, we immediately ceased to fire at you. I am old and soon shall be gathered to the great council fire of my fathers in the land of shades, but ere I go, there is something bids me speak in the voice of prophecy: Listen! The Great Spirit protects that man and guides his destinies – he will become the chief of nations, and a people yet unborn will hail him as the founder of a mighty empire. I am come to pay homage to the man who is the particular favorite of Heaven, and who can never die in battle.”

An Indian warrior later declared: “Washington was never born to be killed by a bullet! I had seventeen fair fires at him with my rifle and after all could not bring him to the ground!”

Asian Development Bank is end of the US Dollar global reserve currency

The USA has been running the world financial system since the establishment of the IMF -(International Monetary Fund) and the World Bank which was created after the Bretton Woods agreement in 1945.  See Bretton Woods System in Wikipedia

Now after years of US domination, at times bullying and financial irresponsibility of QE (Quantitative Easing ie printing fiat currency)  the BRICS countries have had enough and they have set up a rival financial system that will be operational on 1st of October 2015. see  Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank part of China’s bid for global clout also see the official AII website

The USA tried to stop its allies from signing the AII agreement but on June 27th 2015 – 57 Counties including Australia signed the agreement. see pictures

Larry Summers the former US Treasury Secretary said “This past month may be remembered as the moment the United States lost its role as the underwriter of the global economic system” Bloomberg April 6th  see what Larry says on www.larrysummers.com

So after the 1st October 2015 we might see a significant shift in the value of the US dollar as it will NO LONGER be the world’s reserve currency.

It might be gradual decline or dramatic- no one really knows.

Banks Closed in Greece

Special Request for PRAYER for Greece! 30 June 2015 –  Capital controls imposed, Banks closed, Gas stations empty! Report by George Markakis ICCC member.

Evi and I landed in Athens Airport on Sunday 28 June shortly before midnight, from a week of ministry away in Hungary. We found very long lines of people in front of ATMs waiting to withdraw money, empty gas stations, and everyone speaking of the country being on the brink of financial collapse. The news said that in one day more than 1 Billion Euro was withdrawn from the Banks through the ATMs as people are afraid that the Bank Accounts will freeze and the deposits may be confiscated.

atm-lines-2-bpfbtThe head-on collision with Eurozone’s bosses is at hand, and the Greek Government announced the Banks will be closed and Referendum will take place on July 5 for the people to decide on the country’s future. Whether the country stays in the Euro, or, returns to the national currency of Drachmae, the future looks currently grim without any visible prospects of the economy picking up “to save the day” in the face of so much unemployment.

In the face of this current situation, there is an urgent need for prayer like never before. Would you please take at least a few moments to pray for Greece? There is a great need for the Lord’s intervention so that justice may be established. The need to pray for the NOW situation (Mon. 29 June 2015) in Greece is not only because a whole country is confronted by grave dangers, exposing at least 3 generations to lifelong risks and devastation.
The current situation may result in unprecedented effects for the entire Eurozone, as this is not merely a national crisis – it is all about who holds the power over all Europeans, and who controls what happens in each country.

The financial institutions have already exerted powers that eliminate the national constitution, supersede the authority of elected national Governments, and totally disatm-lines-bpfbtregard all common sense and principles of how economic measures serve the good of the nations and the common good.

Their demands are not really aiming at ensuring the repayment of the debt, because their measures guarantee failure to repay. Their real aim is to usurp authority over the national Government. Greece is a testing ground and beginning of what they want to gradually accomplish over all the European citizens.

What is behind the minds and methods of otherwise human leaders, is the power of Mammon who wants to exert control and manipulate the common people.

That is why our PRAYERS are NEEDED, as in 1 Timothy 2; our prayers have the power to establish God’s Justice in the Political institutions of the European Union.

New Financial Order maybe around the corner!

The Greek Government might force a major shift in the global financial system on Monday 11th May.

For those who have been watching the financial system will know that China and others in the BRICS nations ( Brazil, Russia, India China and South Africa) have decided to setup a new World Bank in opposition to the IMF- International Monetary Fund which is controlled by USA and Europe.

“The present, inequitable IMF-World Bank system is collapsing under the burden of hundreds of trillions of dollars of unpayable global debts and derivatives obligations, including the Australian banking system’s derivatives exposure of more than $27 trillion. This is the legacy of decades of reckless financial speculation unleashed by IMF-enforced deregulation, and is the driver of the world’s present strategic tensions which have increased the threat of a thermonuclear world war.

Through such new financial institutions as the $100 billion New Development Bank, the $100 billion Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), the $40 billion Silk Road Development Fund, the $20 billion Maritime Silk Road Fund, and the planned Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) bank, the BRICS nations will direct massive investment in much-needed physical infrastructure projects on which all nations can collaborate, forging a basis for lasting global peace and economic prosperity.” Source :Citizens Electoral Council

On Monday the Greek Government will meet the EU Bankers to discuss the Greek debt issue, if this meeting goes bad then we could see Greece leave the EU totally and it would then default on its debt. That could in a worse case scenario cause a domino effect with other nations causing a systemic failure of the global banking system.

The Australian Banking System is not immune to these developments and are not as financially sound  as we all think!  Australian Net foreign debt has risen since 2008 by over 44 per cent, from just under $600 billion to over $865 billion, $639 billion of it in the private sector.

DERIVATIVES_20130821_web2But 3/4 of One Trillion dollars of debt is nothing compared to 27 Trillion dollars worth of Australian Bank derivative exposure!

This graph shows the Debt Vs Capitalization of the Australian Banks in 2011-12 – now in 2015 the situation is 10 Trillion dollars worse in only 3 years! Only the Yellow are bank Assets! Green are our funds which is a liability to the Bank and Red is derivative liabilities.

What happened in 2008-9 our dollar dropped from .98c to USD to only .60c and the world came to the brink of global financial meltdown according the the CEO of ANZ Bank.  Now since Nov 2014 the G20 nations are quietly setting up the Bail in laws that will legally allow the Banks to confiscate their depositors funds and force their customers ( you and me) to accept Bank shares under the guise of we are “Too Big to Fail”! We have allot of good people who work in the banking system and they are not deliberately seeking to crash the system – but after learning about the history of global banking over the last 300 years it has become clear that there are a small group of people who seem to control to entire system.  These people do seem like they want to own the world and the reason why is actually found in the bible.

Do you want to understand the history behind this monumental swindle and how the global financial system really works?  Then can I encourage you to read or listen to via www.audible.com – The Creature from Jekyll Island by G Edward Griffin.  After this book you will never look at the banking system the same way and it is a must for any serious student of history.

The “Internet of Things” IoT

IPv6 a new computer protocol for the Internet has now made it possible to connect the entire world to the Internet and they are calling it “Internet of Things” or IoT.

We are not just talking about a few connect devices like we have today, they mean everything on the earth will be connected to the Internet!

Even animals and people are to be provided with a URI which stands a uniform resource identifier  – everything on the earth will have a certain resource identifier and it will be connected to the  global computer network.

Fiat Currency System

100Trillion Dollars

Do you know what Fiat Currency is? You used it every day!

The technical definition is “paper that the government has declared to be legal tender that is NOT not backed by a physical commodity” ie Gold.

This paper (or in the case of Australian money its polypropylene polymer) that we all use- as if it has intrinsic value, (which it doesn’t) it only has value because other people will exchange it for a commodity or service of REAL value like food, petrol, air plane ticket, pay taxes and bills. It only has value while we have confidence that others will accept it as payment for what we really want and use.

There is about 167 official national currencies circulating around the world, even though there is 196 countries in the world – 19 counties use other nations currencies.

No one really knows how much of this “Paper” currency is floating around the world but in 2010 it was thought to be close to $55 Trillion US dollars – ($13 Trillion was in USD currency as at June 2013)

According to a study of 775 fiat currencies by DollarDaze.org, there is no historical precedence for a fiat currency succeeding. Twenty percent failed through hyperinflation, 21% were destroyed by war, 12% destroyed by independence, 24% were monetarily reformed, and 23% are still in circulation approaching one of the other outcomes.

Founded in 1694, the British Pound Sterling is the oldest fiat currency in existence. At a ripe old age of 321 years it must be considered a highly successful fiat currency. However the only reason why it has existed so long is because it was often pegged and exchangeable for gold and silver. A British pound coin was originally weighed as one troy pound of sterling silver! This is why it is still called Pound Sterling – but there is nothing sterling about it now, because in March 2015 it will cost you 164 pounds to buy 1 pound of silver!

So now it’s worth is less than 1/164 or 1.6% of its original value. Therefore the most successful long standing currency in existence has lost 98.4% of its value.

gold

US Gold Backing

Only 56 years ago in 1971 the US dollar was fully exchangeable for Gold Bullion, which was the requirement of the agreement made at Bretton Woods during the post 2ww global financial reconstruction. In 1971 it cost $1.8 USD to buy 1 ounce of silver and $ 40 USD to buy 1 ounce of gold. In March 2015 it costs $1289 USD to buy 1 ounce of Gold and $17 USD to buy an ounce of silver.

What happened in 1971 – every economics follower would tell you it was the year Nixon took the US Dollar totally off the gold standard and refused to honor the agreement to redeem US dollars for gold. That was the beginning of a massive growth in inflation, the sign the US and the west was beginning a steady decline in living standards and purchasing power.

Today there is about 120,000-140,000 metric tons of gold above ground in the world and about 2270 tons of gold is mined out of the ground each year. Interesting China No 1 and Australia No 2 are the two top gold producers today.

The US Gold Reserve is supposed to be just over 8,000 tonnes – which is about 6% of the total gold ever mined. It is worth about $200 billion, or 1.8% of the US national debt. Total US Debt (State and Federal) by end of 2015 is expected to grow to appox $22 Trillion.

Conclusion

This means that roughly 4.46% of US dollars in circulation are ‘backed’ by gold, the rest backed by false promises and goodwill.

Simply put, the price of gold would have to rise 20-25 times in order for the US and British governments’ gold assets to match the supply of money in circulation.

History has a message for us: No fiat currency has lasted forever. Eventually, they all fail.

Has Australian Treasurer now Approved Bank Bail in- secretly?

Joe Hockey

What is a Bank Bail in Vs a Bank Bail OUT

In one of my earlier blog posts in October 2013 I reported on International plans by Governments to setup laws to allow Banks to confiscate depositors funds in case of another GFC.

Instead of Governments Bailing Out the Banks – depositors will be those at risk in future if there is another financial meltdown that is called “Bail IN”

It is now looking like the latest G20 meeting in Brisbane has now allowed the Australian Government to make legal this confiscation by agreeing at G20 to legislate Bail IN laws.

Here are a few facts that might amaze you!

The Department of the Treasury’s submission to the Financial System Inquiry 3 April 2014

Bail-in
158. Part of the G20’s policy response to the problem of ‘too big to fail’ is to reduce the moral hazard and fiscal costs through a bail-in regime, which includes a framework for loss absorbency. Bail-in involves allowing the Government to write down the value of bank debt or converting debt securities into equity when the bank fails.

159. In theory, a credible bail-in regime would directly address the moral hazard and efficiency issues caused by too big to fail.

163. ….A bail-in policy would generate efficiency gains by ensuring that lenders rather than taxpayers met the cost arising from the failure of a bank to meet its obligations.”

In this case the lenders are the depositors – you and me!

Reserve Bank of Australia Speech by Glenn Stevens RBA Governor to the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco’s Symposium on Asian Banking and Finance San Francisco – 10 June 2014

“Addressing the problem of ‘too big to fail’ entities, a key area of work this year is to put forward a proposal for ‘gone-concern loss-absorbing capacity’, or ‘GLAC’, for global systemically important banks ………….Such entities are sufficiently large and interconnected that an uncontrolled failure could easily cause systemic disruption.

Therefore, it is argued that further loss-absorbing capacity is needed, to be called on at the point of non‑viability, so as to allow vital functions to continue and non-critical operations to be wound down in a controlled way. This limits adverse spillovers to the system and the economy. Generally, this loss-absorbing capacity is to come from a ‘bail-in’ of certain classes of private creditors, so as to avoid calling on the public purse for a ‘bail-out.”

25/10/2014 Bank of England targets end of bank bail-out era – Daily Telegraph

“Global regulators are expected to make further progress towards locking in the “bail-in” regime at next month’s G20 summit in Brisbane,….The new regime comes into place from January 2015.”

Strengthening APRA’s Crisis Management Powers Paper- (APRA is Australian Prudential Regulation Authority) 2012

“Financial Stability Board Key Attributes set out the types of resolution powers that jurisdictions should have available for dealing with financial institution distress. These include the need for robust statutory powers to: … suspend or cancel financial obligations…facilitate bail-in.”

Andy Sutton.com 

“On November 16 2014, leaders of the G20 Group of Nations – the 20 largest economies – made an important decision. The world’s megabanks now have official permission to pledge depositor accounts as collateral to make leveraged derivative bets. And if they lose a bet, the counterparty to the contract has first dibs on your money. The governments of these 20 countries are now supposed to put these arrangements into law……..Thus, when you deposit money in a bank now, you’re taking the same risk as someone buying a stock”

“The G20 has also officially declared that derivatives – the toxic contracts Warren Buffett calls “financial weapons of mass destruction” – are secured debts. Since your bank deposits are now only unsecured debt that the bank has pledged to a secured creditor, guess who gets your money if the bet goes the wrong way for the bank- not you!”

December 16, 2014 | Greg Hunter Report

“Theoretically, we are protected by deposit insurance up to $250,000 in the U.S. and 100,000 euros in Europe. The FDIC fund has $46 billion, the last time I looked, to cover $4.5 trillion worth of deposits.
There is also $280 trillion worth of derivatives that the five biggest banks in the U.S. are exposed to, and under the bankruptcy reform act of 2005, derivatives go first. So, they are basically exempt from these new rules. They just snatch the collateral. So, if you had a big derivatives bust that brought down JP Morgan or Bank of America, there is no way there is going to be collateral left for the FDIC or for the secured depositors.”

___________________________________________

I don’t know if anyone has politely pointed out to the politicians that Taxpayers are ALSO Depositors! So what they are really saying is that the Government of the day does not want to be blamed by the voters when the next GFC hits. But we all know that its the politicians who are allowing these bankers (who have no morals) to get away with theft on a grand scale!

So there might be some interesting times ahead – lets pray for Gods wisdom and understanding as we walk through these days coming.  Alan

Concerning events in Russia

The Russian Ruble has dropped by 50% to the US Dollar

This drop is mainly due to International Sanctions and the Oil price dropping from $107US to $52US in last 6 months. This is now starting to cause serious hardship inside Russia and the ramifications for 2015 are troubling. Certainly it will cause significant inflation and this is one reason why the Russian central bank has raised interest rates to 17% overnight.

About $100 Billion dollars have already left the country during 2014 seeking safer waters which has caused the central bank to tighten capital controls on the flow of money.

Devaluations of this size can cause runaway hyperinflation which is when local owners of Rubles buy up any fixed assets and trade-able goods before their paper money looses more value. This increases the velocity of money ( the speed the paper money changes hands) which further increases the price of goods. This is what happened in Germany leading up to the 2WW.

There are some concerning similarities to what happened leading up to the WW1 and WW2 when you consider the super powers arguing over Ukraine, 100 years from the conflict in the Balkans that started the First World War. Then consider that Japan went to war when the US put an oil embargo on Japan because of Japans expansionist actions in 1930’s.

Oil is again in the center of the issue and again embargo’s are being used to try and coerce Russia to back down over Ukraine.

There has even been some suggestion that the US administration wants a regime change in Russia and this explains Washington’s actions and rhetoric. It is clear that both the Russian President Putin and US President Obama don’t like each other and especially when Putin out maneuvered Obama in Syria. Could it be that Obama is playing a very risking game of Russian roulette?

The question is – why is the West so upset over Ukraine when Russia has such a long history in that region and share a border with the country. It is only natural that Russia will want to secure its borders and would not want NATO living so close. It is interesting to note that the current Kiev Government was supposedly setup by western powers, after deposing a pro Russian elected Ukrainian Government.

Lets be praying that sound heads prevail during these times as we maybe in store for some rocky oceans in the coming years.

How much is a Trillion Dollars?

“Can anyone tell me how much a Trillion dollars is Please”?

Well the question came back with the answer put in a way that really puts things in perspective!

Example

I owe you some money!

So I say to you  “I will pay you what I owe you in 1 million seconds “

And when you calculate that out 1 million seconds works out to 11.5 days!  OK you say “I can live with that!”

Sorry – I say- ” I meant to say I will pay you in 1 billion seconds – you work that out and it’s 31 years” – Now we have a problem!

But wait – I say “Sorry did I say 1 Billion I actually meant 1 Trillion seconds”!

When you work out what 1 Trillion seconds is – you realize that I plan to pay you in 31,688 YEARS

The USA is now $18 Trillion Dollars in Debt – I don’t think any of us plan to be around long enough to see that paid off!

The next question I have now asked is – “Can someone please tell me Who the USA owes $18 Trillion dollars too”??????

A “NEW” Ancient Hebrew Bible code, reveals exactly who the Messiah is, and his purpose for coming.

We unveil a Mystery from the first sentence of Genesis, which Hebrew Scholars have sought to understand for thousands of years, ever since the Torah was first written.

And we discover Messianic Prophecies, which prove beyond doubt that Yeshua (Jesus) was indeed God’s Messiah. This broadcast is a “must watch” for Jews, Muslims and anyone else seeking to understand why Christians claim that Jesus was both the Messiah and God.

Jesus Speaks from the Old and New Testamant through Ben Hur Film

image

Many people have seen the film Ben Hur released in 1959 by MGM.  I remember watching the 35mm film at my school when I was 14 years old and being really moved by the epic story, but back then I never knew why it moved me so much.

Now 40 years later I now understand why Judah Ben Hur (played by Charlton Heston one of my favorite actors of that era) story moved me show powerfully.  It is an epic story of redemption of one man and of the whole of humanity.

I have taken some moving film images, included music and scriptures from the Old and new Testament Bible, and you hear Jesus speaking to our generation now and to all those who come after us.

As you watch this short clip, consider that Isaiah saw 600 years into the future and penned the words that are now immortalized in the sufferings of Christ on the Cross.

“Heaven and Earth shall pass away, but my words will never pass away” Matthew 24:35

Gods Plan of Redemption found in Names of the Genesis Founding Fathers

Much of the Bible focuses on God’s plan to restore man back to a right relationship with his Creator.

But a well known bible teacher Chuck Missler has revealed the redemption story in the first 10 names in Chapter 5 of Genesis.

The Torah is the Jews most sacred book and it is foundational in Christianity and even in other religions like Islam.

But Chuck Missler’s discovery is shocking and a challenge to every religious and non religious person.

Only a person who believes in the Christian understanding of the bible will find this revelation profoundly affirming to their faith.

Reading Chapter 5 of Genesis you will read that there were 10 generations from Adam to Noah and the time of the global flood. What is amazing is when you look at the actual meaning of each name you find Gods plan for mankind.

Here is its:

Adam means MAN

Seth means APPOINTED

Enosh means MORTAL

Kenan means SORROW

Mahalalel means THE BLESSED GOD

Jared means COME DOWN

Enoch means TEACHING

Methuselah means HIS DEATH SHALL BRING

Lamech means DESPAIR

Noah means COMFORT or REST

And when you put all the 10 names together it says:

“Man is appointed mortal sorrow, but the Blessed God shall come down and teach that his death shall bring the despairing comfort and rest”

Jihadists to Christians in Syrian city: convert to Islam, pay up or be killed

Syria, March 04, 2014: A Jihadist group in control of the northern Syrian city of Raqqa has given Christians a devastating ultimatum: convert to Islam, pay the jizya tax and abide by a list of restrictions, or else risk being killed.

In a statement posted online, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) said it would give Christians protection if they paid the tax and agreed to its conditions, adding:

“If they reject, they are subject to being legitimate targets, and nothing will remain between them and ISIS other than the sword.”

“I Asked God”

I asked God to spare me pain, and God said “No!”

He said, suffering draws you from worldly cares,

And brings you closer to me.

I asked God to make my handicapped child whole,

And God said, “No!” He said her spirit is whole,

Her body is only temporary.

I asked God to grant me patience, and God said,

“No!” He said that patience is a by-product of

Tribulation, it isn’t granted, it’s earned.

I asked God to give me happiness, And God said

“No!” He said, He gives me blessings; happiness

Is up to me.

I asked God to take away my pride, and

God said “No!” He said it is not for Him to

Take away, but for me to give up.

I asked God to make my spirit grow, God said,

“No!” He said I must grow on my own,

But He will prune me to make me fruitful.

I asked God if He loved me, God said, “Yes”.

He gave me His only Son who died for me, and

I will be in heaven someday because I believe.

I asked God to help me love others as much

As He loves me, And God said, “Ah finally

You have the idea.”
