A Christ Filled Life – Getting To Know Jesus
When evil comes, those who have God’s Understanding and Wisdom will not fear; because they will Understand that evil thoughts and or actions have consequences and Wisdom, in that, we trust our Lord and Saviour to protect and keep us for the Day of Judgment, when we will live Eternally with Christ Jesus. “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation (trouble): but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33. Amen.
