John 13:34 kjv – A new commandment I give unto you. That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another

God Marks His Too!

I don’t hear many speak about God’s mark. I just mostly hear about the mark of the beast. I’ve always been warned about that from my grandmother. I never really thought about God marking His in my younger days. Nobody at all that I can remember ever even mentioned it.

I had a dream a couple months ago and I didn’t tell but very few. I had been in heavy prayer and so heavy with the weight of sharing messages.

The replies to this prayer request broke my heart and I cried. Continue Reading >>>

After searching for the words that had the right tune, the song is actually called Connected. It was the first single from the British group Stereo MC’s. The lyrics go on to say ‘somethin’ ain’t right’ and ‘stumble you might fall.’ Continue Reading >>>
