I've got my foot on the Rock and my mind's made up
Though I walk through the lonely valley, though I drink from the bitter cup. When the devil comes a-knockin' showin' me an easier way,
"I stand right square on my feet, I throw my head in the air, I look him straight in the eye, I say my foot's on the Rock and my mind's made up!"
This is the Present Posture of the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ in this hour:)
Pastor John Edwards

AND
When we are born again of the water & baptized by immersion in the only saving name of Jesus Christ (combined with true Biblical repentance) we are placed into the Kingdom of God:)
When we are born again of the Spirit & baptized with the Holy Ghost (evidenced by speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance) the Kingdom of God is placed within us:)
How truly Amazing is our God:)

Pastor John Edwards

*****************************


July 12, 2020


But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: "against such there is no law". And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Galatians 5:22-26

Theres a Law of Gravity. Laws of the land.
Everything has a law that comes against the behavior or action that opposes the intended goal of such laws.
But there is no law that can come against the growing of the fruit of the Spirit in the life of Gods children.
Pastor John Edwards
