Hebrews 12:1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, 2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. 4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. 5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: 6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. 7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. 9 Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? 10 For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. 11 Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby.
God-send I plan to listen to this every night before I fall asleep; I know God has shiwn you His Truth & nothing but the Truth with no lies mixed in; it is a blessing, a true blessing to come across people I don't know but that God knows who know His Truth and who are able, willing & do share it! I'm searching for this and God has me on a journey to finding & learning from such.
In Jesus Christ's name, love & peace towards YOU from thise who are asking God to bring them into contact, to make known to them, people like YOU who â€¢knowâ€¢ His Truth, believe it, share it & live it...
God bless YOU, Mr. Wages!

Great Sermon! Dear Bro. Wages,
As usually the case. This sermon could not have come at a better time. I am truly thankful to the Lord our Father with his Sovereign Love that through his spirit gave you the truth to speak on this topic. It always amazes me how the Lord answers his childrens prayers from where they least expect it. That is the Amazing power of the Prophet, Priest and King that through his son, we have fellowship with and can call him our friend.
Glory be to the Lord for the use of his humble servant to feed his sheep at the table with the Mana of life (His Word, His Gospel)
Thank you so much.
Bro. Adam Gregory
