HERE IS THE FIRST MAJOR ATTEMPT OF SATAN TO DESTROY THE BLESSED HOPE - THE TRUTH AFTER CHRIST WAS CRUCIFIED. THE LOVE OF MONEY IS DEMONSTRATED AS THE VERY ROOT OF THE EVIL. THE ELDERS COLLABORATED TO KEEP YOU AND I FROM BELIEVING IN JESUS CHRIST. TODAY BE AWARE THAT ALL OF SATAN'S TIME AND EFFORT IS IN MAKING EVERY THING IN YOUR LIFE AND EVERYONE ASSEMBLE AND CONSULT TO USE MONEY AND EVERY OTHER DEVICE TO KEEP YOU FROM THE LIFE, THE TRUTH AND THE WAY. MAKE EVERY MOMENT AN EFFORT TO GET TO KNOW CHRIST MORE INTIMATELY AND REJOICE IN THE GREAT GIFT OF HIS SALVATION.
