  2. Select Filters and Add
  3. Name the filter and add the sender email address

  • Biblical truths that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and He condescended to this Earth which was and is full of sin and ill repute to sacrifice Himself and be resurrected on the third day. These acts of pure love fullfilled every Old Testament prophecy about the coming Messiah and provides the only way for you to have eternal life with Him. The alternative is an eternity without the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
  • Scriptural understanding that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are all ONE God with separate functions of the Godhead. The Holy Spirit has been sent to us by God the Father to be our comfortor and our guide. Everything created by God including the foods we eat, the liquids we drink, the dirt under our feet, and the air we breathe has been corrupted and poisoned by Satan with the veil of goodness and care. Our job is to rebuke Satan and utilize God's provisions (just as He promised), the best we can, so that our body will return to vigor, the mind to calm, and our spirit to peace. These things are necessary so we can recognize and hear the Holy Spirit as He comforts and guides us toward God's path for our lives.
