    And you are so very right @ the Prophet. Banasy is one of the nicest people i know and her friendship has helped me more than i can ever put into mere words. And it upsets me greatly when 2 certain people on these blogs continually attack her, for no gond reason accept to stroke their egos!

    My followers, remember Jesus faith is in each and everyone of us, you have the power not the Empire, you have the answer to humanity not the Governments and people with money, you can empower and you can take away powers. Jesus was a man but his faith made him a supreme being a wholly man, the world needs to change man need to change.

    My followers as you go to sleep tonight, am sure the question has come up many times, what is happening around me and the world? You have a purpose, trust me let Jesus enter your heart and you feel the strength and power to clearly see the purpose, and tomorrow you will not feel and walk alone no more.

    Well, thank you, prophet; what a lovely sentiment.
    Happy New Year to you, also.

    Many thanks, and the feeling is mutual.

    It was a good apology too, chrissy. I see and have seen so-much of what's going on in the world and for so many decades...I get overwhelmed sometimes and lash-out at those who seeem to be acting as if nothing unusual is going on in our world today.
    I wish you folks would understand how hard it is to deal with bi-polarism without either being medicated or medicating one's self. (especially this time of year when suicide rates among depressed people quadruple)
    I wish we could just snap our fingers and the more heinous of those who make this world more miserable would all be gone or in prison.

    @the prophet. Actually, all that you need to see God's purpose is a set of eyeballs that can read. (or, just good old-fashioned common sense)
    God's purpose for this earth hasn't changed...certain men among world leaders simply have a different purpose in mind than God does.
    From day one, God's purpose for His children has been that of a loving provide for His children a warm and happy home in which to live. It are the men distorting this purpose of God in order to mislead you away from God and to themselves for protection who are the ones telling you that you are special, unique...that your purpose is different tan God's. It's the oldest trick in the book of nations, "Divide and Conquer".
