  1. Joel you spoke of the children and homeless.well, i continually pray n try help when i can cause i think all people of all nationalities n races n gender deserve to have certain things in life that God offers.and second we must pray for all veterans n military and ALL first responders being just a ordinary person at a scene of another needing help, which could be you or i, or police officers, firemen or paramedics and i hope someday down the line the first responders will be admired for their life saving help, whether being a plaque or medal or thankyou check for their courage, even better pay somehow for risking their own lives for another.

  2. Are you having temptations or urges to return to those old sins or addictions that you quit some time ago?

    (If so, read here please!)

    (Galatians 4:9)- “So now that you know God (or should I say, now that God knows you), why do you want to go back again and become slaves once more to the weak and useless spiritual principles of this world?”

    (2 chronicles 15:7)- “be strong and do not give up.”

    (Romans 8:12)- “you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do.”

    (Romans 6:12)- “Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.”

    (Extremely short closing statements): If you have managed to overcome any addictions, such as: alcohol, smoking (cigarettes or herbal plants), or even observing sexually explicit videos— (just to name a few examples), then I just wanted to remind you that you are doing an extremely fantastic job! Please keep up the great work! Your hard work has not gone unnoticed, nor unappreciated! For The Lord your God sees you.

    (And because you are fighting so hard to resist those urges, that is precisely the reason that I am coming to you today with this letter)— Which serves as a reminder; that returning to your old sins/ addictions again after quitting them would be equivalent to throwing mud into a pool after you have just worked extremely hard to clean it! And what’s the use of that?! (Dirtying up what you have worked so very hard to keep clean!)

    Again I say, if you have been refusing to give in to those evil temptations and urges, you are doing extremely well for yourself! please keep up the great work by resisting those temptations and urges as you already have; and in doing so, you will be keeping yourself clean and fully prepared for The Lord’s return. And The Lord has promised, that those who are prepared and ready for His return will be rewarded!

  3. It's critical right now if you or someone you know is struggling to have peace in your heart and not sure about the assurance of your salvation, share on your social media the video titled: How ridiculously easy it is to be saved by the channel David Benjamin in Christ.
