  1. don't fear god. make god fear humanity. bring to him the sickness, cancers and pain he brought us. show him the floods and hatred he deserves. prove to the almighty that we are no longer sheep. we do not require his judgment. as he should be the one that begs for our eternal forgiveness.

  2. Unfortunately, many of us presume that the world is the ultimate threat and that God's function is to offset it. How different this is from the biblical position that God is far scarier than the world …. When we assume that the world is the ultimate threat, we give it unwarranted power, for in truth, the world's threats are temporary. When we expect God to balance the stress of the world, we reduce him to the world's equal …. As I walk with the Lord, I discover that God poses an ominous threat to my ego, but not to me. He rescues me from my delusions, so he may reveal the truth that sets me free. He casts me down, only to lift me up again. He sits in judgment of my sin, but forgives me nevertheless. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, but love from the Lord is its completion.

  4. Can I be honest… he sounds great like a an actor something like that, also I don't come to these very often… usually I'm always playing fortnite, watching movies, going to my grandparents house and cook but I always dreamt to make stories and do animation of a… well, maybe a super hero sort of. I know that it seems a little inappropriate to say that in this animation involves violence and stuff but I always wanted to be a animator myself and make stories or maybe even a full on book about it. I'm not novelist or a journalist but I do adore creativity!

  5. God wants to be loved and not feared …. ¶ I do not want you to look upon Me as an avenging and punishing God Who ruthlessly condemns and inflicts hardest punishments on all those who act in opposition to Him. Every doctrine which portrays Me as a God of revenge and an eternally wrathful Judge is wrong, for such misguided teachings will only ever increase the distance between you and Me, because as long as love for Me is not in you, you cannot come closer to Me either.

  6. Since we are in the Book of Revelation of the times now God has those things from what is in Revelation going to happen on earth.And because this is a wicked generation of people that is a unrepentant generation they will not come to repentance many of them and read the Book of Revelation and know what's coming on the wicked.

  7. “My child, don’t reject the Lord’s discipline,
    and don’t be upset when he corrects you.
    12 For the Lord corrects those he loves,
    just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights”
    Proverbs 3:11-12.

    “Come, let us return to the LORD. He has torn us to pieces; now he will heal us. He has injured us; now he will bandage our wounds. Hosea 6:1.
    As being a Christian you have to obey God so you may not be punished (it’s punishing out of love).
