he urge to know the future is part of human nature aftermath of the Fall of the human race in the Garden of Eden. Because the future lives in the street of time, the future belongs to the One who owns time and that is God. Throughout human history, human beings want to arrive in the future sooner than it happens and the children of Adam and Eve have contrived sundry avenues to see the future instead of waiting to be there. In ancient times and even today, Satan and his demons have constructed menageries of means to assuage the human urge to know the future. The True Lord God Almighty invented time in the natural dimension to control human events, including the future. In the Book of Life, there is no where the Jehovah Lord God Almighty condemned the natural urge by human beings to know the future. The urge to know the future is indeed a legitimate demand, but what He decried is, from whom are human beings seeking the future? Thus, He warned us in Leviticus 19:31: "Do not turn to mediums or seek out spiritists, for you will be defiled by them. I am the LORD your God." In Deuteronomy 18:11, He commanded that; "There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, one who uses divination, one who practices witchcraft, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead."

Why did the Jehovah Lord God Almighty forbid us from seeking into the future? He answered the question Himself in Deuteronomy 29:29; the hidden things, including the future belong to the Lord. When you, a mere mortal begin to declare the future without authorization, you're violating the Lord's Command in Exodus 20:15: "You shall not steal." That Commandment wasn't property law, but spiritual law. Tomorrow and the future belong to the True Jehovah Lord God Almighty and they are part of God's spiritual properties. When you seek to know the future without clearance from the One who owns the future, you're engaging in spiritual thefts (Revelation 9:20-21: "The rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the works of their hands. They did not stop worshiping demons and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone, and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts"). He is the One who has the future in His Hands and thus declare in Isaiah 46:9-10; "Remember the former things long past, For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is no one like Me. I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say, 'My purpose will stand, and I will do all that I please."

If the future and tomorrow belong to the Jehovah Lord God Almighty and rightly so, do we human beings have the right to seek the future? Yes, if the right requirements are met. In other words, the Lord God Almighty actually speak to us human beings concerning the future and His prophets are those that convey such messages on His behalf according to Amos 3:7: "Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets." So is the Jehovah Lord God Almighty discriminatory and only talk to His prophets? No, because that would be contrary to His Nature in Romans 2:11: "For God doesn't show favoritism." The Lord God Almighty reveals His plans to His prophets, which is known as revelation. But there is a difference between revelation and speaking to human beings. For example, the whole of the entire Holy Bible are revelations of the Jehovah Lord God Almighty about His plans for the human race. If you're truly saved and regenerated, washed in the Precious Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and indwelled by the Holy Spirit, you can know all the plans of the Sovereign Lord God Almighty for the human race, the concatenation of events that must take place before judgment and all that are happening around the world today. That is revelation. But in the daily affairs of every human being, whether you're a born-again Christian or not, the Sovereign Lord God Almighty speaks to all human beings. Yes, the Lord God Almighty speaks to all His Creation as a loving and gracious Father, but the difference is that; if you are indeed one of His Own, you'll be able to hear Him just as our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord God Almighty Father in the flesh, disclosed in John 10:27: "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me." In other words, if you are not a born-again Christian sanctified with the Holy Spirit, you can't hear from the True Lord God Almighty when He speaks to you. But there is another voice that can and does speak like the True Jehovah Lord God Almighty. This other voice is that of Satan. He too can reveal things and can also speak to human beings and he speaks to us all the time. When the True Lord God Almighty speaks to us-not reveal-that is called prophecy. Similarly, when Satan speaks to us too-not reveal-it is also called prophecy. How then do we know which is which? In other words, when the True Lord God Almighty speaks, how do we know He is the One speaking? How do we separate the Voice of the True Lord God Almighty and the voice of Satan, the devil?

For ages and in orthodox religious movement and in many spiritual hagiographical works out there, we have peremptorily concluded that whatever the Lord God says to us must come to pass and if it doesn't, then that is not the words of the Lord. Similarly, we have also been erroneously taught or made to believe that, anything said by a prophet and which comes to pass must be from the Lord. Both are wrong in the revealed Light of the Word of God; the Holy Bible. When the True Lord God Almighty reveals His plans to His prophets, which are revelations, they MUST be fulfilled, irrespective of the time and age, because He is not bound by Time and Space. Hallelujah! Such revelations are many in the Holy Bible; for examples, Pharaoh's Dreams in Genesis 41. As Joseph aptly told Pharaoh in verse 16: "Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, "The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do." Similarly, all the words spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ are categorized as revelations in the Synoptic Gospels and all must come to pass. The greatest book of revelations in the entire Holy Bible is the last book which is exactly what it is: Apocalypse or Revealing or Book of Revelation. For as the Lord Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:18: "For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished." Because He is the True Jehovah Lord God Almighty in the flesh, the Words and Revelation of Jesus Christ must ultimately and sure-footedly come to pass.

But prophecy is different from revelation. A prophecy is a gift of the Holy Spirit given by Him to born-again Christians to use for the edification of the church and making prophetic utterances on people, events and situation on earth(I Corinthians 12:7,10: " Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good…to another prophecy…"Paul elucidated copiously on this further in that 1 Corinthians, when he said in I Corinthians 14b: "…prophecy, however, is not for unbelievers but for believers." Earlier on in Deuteronomy 18:21-22, the True Lord God Almighty said thus: "You may say to yourselves, "How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?" If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed."" Some Christians have misinterpreted these two verses for long, by looking at every article and prophecy written in this column or elsewhere and once it doesn't confirm what has been said or written, they go haywire and begin to write nonsense. Some even say that the Lord God Almighty commanded that such a prophet should be stoned to death, whereas there was nothing of such in the Word of Life. The Lord God Almighty said, "That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed."Instead of perfunctory knowledge of the Word of Life, such babblers should have backtracked in that Deuteronomy 18 to study very well the Words of our Heavenly Father. In Deuteronomy 18:17b-20, the Lord God Almighty specifically told Moses to tell the children of Israel: "The LORD said to me: "What they say is good. I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth. He will tell them everything I command him. I myself will call to account anyone who does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name. But a prophet who presumes to speak in my name anything I have not commanded, or a prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, is to be put to death." Do you read that? The Lord God Almighty knew that Satan would raise up his own prophets too in the course of human history and based on the residual powers Satan and his demons possessed after the fall of Adam and Eve, such satanic prophecies would come to pass. However, how, where and when such Satanic prophets can be unmasked is that, they would convince people that since their prophecies have come to pass, then people should worship their gods. Believe this now: Satan and his human prophets can prophesy and their prophecies can be fulfilled. In fact, fulfillments of prophecies are not the litmus tests for knowing true and false prophets. I have itemized fourteen elements or characteristics of true and false prophets in this column in earlier articles and will not repeat them again.

SEVEN WAYS AND REASONSTHROUGH WHICH THE TRUE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SPEAKS TO HUMAN BEINGS

In my co-authored book: "The Kingdom of Satan Exposed," we dealt extensively on how to tear apart the Voice of the True Jehovah Lord God Almighty and the voice of Satan. But we need to reiterate some disclosures here again, for those that haven't read the tome. As aforesaid, the Lord God Almighty speaks to every human being on the face of the earth planet. As long as you have a spirit, soul and body; your Creator owes it a duty to speak to you. Watch what the Holy Spirit is saying here; the Jehovah Lord God Almighty speaks to all human beings, but only makes His plans known as revelation to His prophets. The revelations of the Lord God Almighty are different from the words or prophecies of the Jehovah Lord God Almighty. I will cite two instances out of several examples in the Word of Life. For example, the installation of young Solomon was not revealed by the Lord God Almighty. In other words, Solomon did not become king because it was revealed by the Lord God Almighty. Read and study your Holy Bible very well. Prophet Nathan was the one that engineered the installation of Solomon, because he was slighted by Adonijah, the younger brother of Solomon, who crowned himself as king without inviting Prophet Nathan. Here is the brief account in I Kings 1-49: "When King David was very old, he could not keep warm even when they put covers over him. So his attendants said to him, "Let us look for a young virgin to serve the king and take care of him. She can lie beside him so that our lord the king may keep warm." Then they searched throughout Israel for a beautiful young woman and found Abishag, a Shunammite, and brought her to the king. The woman was very beautiful; she took care of the king and waited on him, but the king had no sexual relations with her. Now Adonijah, whose mother was Haggith, put himself forward and said, "I will be king." So he got chariots and horses ready, with fifty men to run ahead of him. (His father had never rebuked him by asking, "Why do you behave as you do?" He was also very handsome and was born next after Absalom.) Adonijah conferred with Joab son of Zeruiah and with Abiathar the priest and they gave him their support. But Zadok the priest, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, Nathan the prophet, Shimei and Rei and David's special guard did not join Adonijah. Adonijah then sacrificed sheep, cattle and fattened calves at the Stone of Zoheleth near En Rogel. He invited all his brothers, the king's sons, and all the royal officials of Judah, but he did not invite Nathan the prophet or Benaiah or the special guard or his brother Solomon. Then Nathan asked Bathsheba, Solomon's mother, "Have you not heard that Adonijah, the son of Haggith, has become king, and our lord David knows nothing about it? Now then, let me advise you how you can save your own life and the life of your son Solomon. Go in to King David and say to him, 'My lord the king, did you not swear to me your servant: "Surely Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne"? Why then has Adonijah become king?' While you are still there talking to the king, I will come in and add my word to what you have said." So Bathsheba went to see the aged king in his room, where Abishag the Shunammite was attending him. Bathsheba bowed down, prostrating herself before the king. "What is it you want?" the king asked. She said to him, "My lord, you yourself swore to me your servant by the LORD your God: 'Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne.' But now Adonijah has become king, and you, my lord the king, do not know about it. He has sacrificed great numbers of cattle, fattened calves, and sheep, and has invited all the king's sons, Abiathar the priest and Joab the commander of the army, but he has not invited Solomon your servant. My lord the king, the eyes of all Israel are on you, to learn from you who will sit on the throne of my lord the king after him. Otherwise, as soon as my lord the king is laid to rest with his ancestors, I and my son Solomon will be treated as criminals."

While she was still speaking with the king, Nathan the prophet arrived. And the king was told, "Nathan the prophet is here." So he went before the king and bowed with his face to the ground. Nathan said, "Have you, my lord the king, declared that Adonijah shall be king after you, and that he will sit on your throne? Today he has gone down and sacrificed great numbers of cattle, fattened calves, and sheep. He has invited all the king's sons, the commanders of the army and Abiathar the priest. Right now they are eating and drinking with him and saying, 'Long live King Adonijah!' But me your servant, and Zadok the priest, and Benaiah son of Jehoiada, and your servant Solomon he did not invite. Is this something my lord the king has done without letting his servants know who should sit on the throne of my lord the king after him?"

Then King David said, "Call in Bathsheba." So she came into the king's presence and stood before him. The king then took an oath: "As surely as the LORD lives, who has delivered me out of every trouble, I will surely carry out this very day what I swore to you by the LORD, the God of Israel: Solomon your son shall be king after me, and he will sit on my throne in my place." Then Bathsheba bowed down with her face to the ground, prostrating herself before the king, and said, "May my lord King David live forever!" King David said, "Call in Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet and Benaiah son of Jehoiada." When they came before the king, he said to them: "Take your lord's servants with you and have Solomon my son mount my own mule and take him down to Gihon. There have Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet anoint him king over Israel. Blow the trumpet and shout, 'Long live King Solomon!' Then you are to go up with him, and he is to come and sit on my throne and reign in my place. I have appointed him ruler over Israel and Judah." Benaiah son of Jehoiada answered the king, "Amen! May the LORD, the God of my lord the king, so declare it. As the LORD was with my lord the king, so may he be with Solomon to make his throne even greater than the throne of my lord King David!" So Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, the Kerethites and the Pelethites went down and had Solomon mount King David's mule, and they escorted him to Gihon. Zadok the priest took the horn of oil from the sacred tent and anointed Solomon. Then they sounded the trumpet and all the people shouted, "Long live King Solomon!" And all the people went up after him, playing pipes and rejoicing greatly, so that the ground shook with the sound.

Adonijah and all the guests who were with him heard it as they were finishing their feast. On hearing the sound of the trumpet, Joab asked, "What's the meaning of all the noise in the city?" Even as he was speaking, Jonathan son of Abiathar the priest arrived. Adonijah said, "Come in. A worthy man like you must be bringing good news.""Not at all!" Jonathan answered. "Our lord King David has made Solomon king. The king has sent with him Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, Benaiah son of Jehoiada, the Kerethites and the Pelethites, and they have put him on the king's mule, and Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet have anointed him king at Gihon. From there they have gone up cheering, and the city resounds with it. That's the noise you hear. Moreover, Solomon has taken his seat on the royal throne. Also, the royal officials have come to congratulate our lord King David, saying, 'May your God make Solomon's name more famous than yours and his throne greater than yours!' And the king bowed in worship on his bed and said, 'Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who has allowed my eyes to see a successor on my throne today.'" At this, all Adonijah's guests rose in alarm and dispersed."

Why did the True Lord God Almighty allow this to happen? Because Nathan was God's prophet and as the Word of God disclosed in I Peter 4:11: "Anyone who speaks, let him speak as the oracle of God." Prophet Nathan tapped into what Romans 12:1-2 called the permissible will of God to make boy Solomon king, because Nathan was an oracle of God. The True Lord God Almighty legitimized King Solomon later by doing this in 1 Kings 3:1-15: He tested him. Do you know it was not the plan or revelation of the Lord God Almighty to cause it not to rain in Israel for three years during the reign of King Ahab? It was not God but Elijah that prayed thus I Kings 17:1: ""Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the LORD, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word." Did you read the last four words there: "…except at my word?" Much later in the course of human history, Apostle James referred to this incident just as I am reticulating them now in this column thus in James 5:17-18: "Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth yielded its crops.…" That was the reason I decreed in this column that a certain politician will never ever rule a state in southeastern Nigeria forever, because he questioned and insulted the Holy Spirit of Jehovah Lord God Almighty in my life. That decree stands as surely as the Lord God Almighty lives.

There are many instances of this nature in the Word of Life and the scripture cannot be broken. Now to the seven ways through which the True Lord God Almighty speaks to all human beings namely: dreams, visions, trances, open revelation, intuition, Word of Life and revelation. I will not go into much details here again in this column since they have been expatiated upon in my co-authored book: "The Kingdom of Satan Exposed," and in previous articles in this column. The seven reasons the Lord God Almighty speaks to us are as follows: to warn us, to chastise us, to direct us, to command and reveal something to us, to humble us, to exhort us and finally, to save our soul from hell as revealed in Job 33:14-30: "Why do you complain to him that he responds to no one's words ? For God does speak-now one way, now another-though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears, and terrify them with warnings, to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword."Or someone may be chastened on a bed of pain with constant distress in their bones, so that their body finds food repulsive and their soul loathes the choicest meal. Their flesh wastes away to nothing, and their bones, once hidden, now stick out. They draw near to the pit and their life to the messengers of death. Yet if there is an angel at their side, a messenger, one out of a thousand, sent to tell them how to be upright, and he is gracious to that person and says to God, 'Spare them from going down to the pit; I have found a ransom for them-let their flesh be renewed like a child's; let them be restored as in the days of their youth'-then that person can pray to God and find favor with him, they will see God's face and shout for joy; he will restore them to full well-being. And they will go to others and say,' I have sinned, I have perverted what is right, but I did not get what I deserved. God has delivered me from going down to the pit and I shall live to enjoy the light of life.'"God does all these things to a person-twice, even three times-to turn them back from the pit that the light of life may shine on them." There you have it! The True Lord God Almighty speaks to all His creation, but only those of us who are truly His children-no arrogance or pride intended-can hear Him. That is why our Lord Jesus Christ, Who is the True Lord God Almighty in the flesh rightly, said it: "My sheep hear my Voice…" (John 10:27). I am happy and glad to be one of the sheep of the Lord Jesus Christ! Hallelujah! Believe it or not, if you're not part of the sheep of the King of kings and Lord of lords, you're a goat of Satan, period, end of story.

THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN REVELATIONS, PROPHECIES AND PREDICTIONS

Revelation is a spiritual message sent by the True Lord God Almighty through any of His servants He has chosen to pass unto the human race. It can also be a spiritual message sent to a group of persons or people about future events explaining the plans and purposes of the Lord God Almighty for that particular people or the entire human race. One of the most enduring and land mark revelations that the True Lord God Almighty passed unto the human race through Apostle John was the last book of Revelation in the Holy Bible. The introduction of that book speaks for itself thus: "The revelation from Jesus Christ, which God gave him to show his servants what must soon take place. He made it known by sending his angel to his servant John, who testifies to everything he saw-that is, the word of God and the testimony of Jesus Christ" (Revelation 1:1-2). From Genesis to Jude, there were many revelations of the Lord as He determined to reveal them.

Prophecies, on the other hand, are spiritual messages spoken by servants and messengers of the Lord God given the power or gift by the Holy Spirit to speak on behalf of the True Lord God Almighty. While revelation is onerously Godly and cannot be imitated by Satan, prophecies, on the other hand, can be faked by Satan and his demons. While revelation of the Lord God Almighty is not a gift, prophecy is a gift of the Holy Spirit. Because those of us who prophesy on behalf of the Lord have the Holy Spirit of God, we can speak on His behalf about secular matters, because: "The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person's thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for, "Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?"But we have the mind of Christ"(I Corinthians 2:10-15).

Predictions on the other hand, are the outcomes of the ability of prognosticators to synthesize events accurately by looking at both conventions and phenomena to arrive at future events. Predictions are possible both in secular and spiritual matters. Dr Gabriel Okonzua, a foremost parapsychologist during his life time in Nigeria used this ability too. Similarly, the late Prof Godspower Oyewole before he gave his life to the Lord Jesus Christ. Many of such prognosticators and parapsychologists are many in the world using pseudo-Science to predict future events. I am not and will never be a parapsychologist. I am a spokesperson of the Jehovah Lord God Almighty. He and only He gave me the gift of prophecy which we have used numerously to His Glory and Honor in this column on events in Nigeria and around the world. There are some future events the Holy Spirit has spoken through us which are yet to be fulfilled. Because they are still being awaited certainly doesn't mean we missed it. Human beings are always in haste. We are in the world of instant this and instant that… whereas the Lord God Almighty is not a God of hurry and cannot be stampeded. Because of the privileged information we have with certain people, we cannot share certain things on the pages of newspapers, or on the Internet, but when we prophesy into the lives of some people, and they refused to follow instructions, it doesn't mean such prophecies are unfulfilled, but the recipients missed such prophecies because of disobedience. When Prophet Micaiah told King Ahab not to go to war with the people of Ramoth Gilead in I Kings 22, if Ahab had listened to the prophecy, he would not have met his waterloo. When Prophet Isaiah went to announce the impending death of King Hezekiah to him in Isaiah 38, if Hezekiah had accepted the prophecy and didn't do anything about it, he would have died as prophesied. Did Isaiah miss it when he prophesied King Hezekiah would die and the king prayed and his life was spared for another 15 years? Certainly not, but the spiritual ignoramuses of today would have been all over the place criticizing and writing rubbish in order to make a name for themselves. When we prophesied here in this column last year that Prime Minister David Cameron would lose the election in the UK and it didn't turn out as election loss as we earlier prophesied, you could see how the ever-ready and armchair critics were piling on themselves hectoring and writing all kinds of rubbish. But less than a year after, what we prophesied took place and David Cameron did indeed "lose" the election as earlier said in this column. Where are the critics who earlier took swipes and occupied the Critic Land? One critic even ludicrously asserted that he too had the gift of prophecy, but why was he not using that gift to give honor and glory to the True Lord God Almighty?

WHY DONALD TRUMP WILL NEVER BECOME U.S. PRESIDENT?

As far back as Thursday November 8, 2012, we saw the emergence of Mrs. Hillary Clinton as the likely successor to President Barack Obama via this article here in this forum http://nigeriaworld.com/articles/2012/nov/083.html. The Christian Walk column hadn't debuted when we wrote this prophecy. On Saturday January 2, 2016, we reiterated what we earlier prophesized about the American Presidential Election via this link http://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/010216.html. Finally, on Monday June 1, 2016, we gave seven Biblically- based reasons the True Lord God Almighty would never allow Mr. Donald Trump to rule America as president. http://nigeriaworld.com/feature/publication/fayemiwo/060116.html. Although the minute details didn't pan out exactly as we prophesied in the choice of running mates, these are not revelations, but Holy Spirit-inspired prophecies to give honor, glory and thanks to the Lord Jesus Christ. These prophecies shall be fulfilled in the next one month and as usual the King of kings and Lord of lords would claim the honor and glory forever, Amen.

FROM MY MAIL BAG

Dear Dr Fayemiwo, I have seen that God is with you, please sir I seriously need your spiritual help. Sir, the problem is that I am confused about my true identity, I'm not sure whether I'm a human being or a devil-incarnate or a saint or a sinner. I am a 43- year old Igbo man from Imo State in eastern Nigeria. I think I was born again in mid 1993 and backslide in mid 1994. For the past 23 years now my life has been in a total state of mess. Please sir, help me. I don't want to die in this waterless pit and go to hell. My name is B. I. (Name undisclosed at writer's request). Thanks----Mr. B.I. Owerri, Imo State, eastern Nigeria.

Dear Mr B.I. If you have given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, that is, you have confessed your sins and taken Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior according to Romans 10:9-10, then you are saved. If you have read my past articles, you will find out the differences between being saved and born-again. A saved and born again Christian cannot backslide, but a saved Christian who is not born again can backslide. That is one of the differences between being saved and born again. Each time you sin, you will know that you have sinned if you are saved and a born again Christian, but once you confess the sin, you are still a child of the Living God. Don't let anyone, your emotions, Satan and his demons deceive you that you're not a saved child of the Living God simply because you sinned, but as the Holy Bible says in 1 John 1-10, "...if we confess our sins, He is merciful and just to forgive us and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." But remember my brother, according to 1 John 3:8-10: "The one who practices sin is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the very start. This is why the Son of God was revealed, to destroy the works of the devil. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. By this the children of God and the children of the devil can be distinguished: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother.…" I hope this explanation helps you in your Christian journey? You will make it to the Promised Heavenly Home in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Amen. Please keep me posted on your spiritual development and I will not cease in praying for you. Remain richly blessed in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
