The Sin of Pro-Choice…

31 Dec


Jeremiah 1:5, “I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.”

With the way that the world is going the act of sinning is not only being more and more accepted by the entire population, but also is being promoted as the right way to live our lives. Their seems to be more actions and excuses for individuals who do not wish to take the responsibility of being a parent or and adult in the decisions that they make with their lives and with their bodies, with abortions being one.

I remember back during the election of 2008, one of the great debates between each political party was of being Pro-Choice (allowing everyone the right to make the decision to have a abortion or not) or of being Pro-Life (the outlawing of abortion rights) I was thinking just who gave us this right to choose who gets to live and who does not? Especially in the taking of a innocent life who has not even had the chance to pled its case to the world. Many Doctors argue that the actual life of a fetus does not really begin until after the first few months of conception but as Jeremiah 1:5 states, God may argue that case against the knowledge of man. In the decision of being Pro-Choice we are wrong! We are wrong in believing that we have that authority to decide for ourselves when and under which circumstances we can bring a child into this world. Several others Biblical scriptures back up this belief as in Psalm 51:5,” For I was born a sinner—yes, from the moment my mother conceived me.”

The Word of God says life begins at the moment of conception and not months later as some would say, regardless of what the natural world may tell us we live our lives according to the Spirit, knowing that all things have purpose and meaning for our lives. I did some research on this topic and found out that the main reason behind the choice to abort a unwanted pregnancy, is not because of a rape which only accounts for less than 1% of all abortions but rather bad judgement. Many abortions occur because people feel that they are not ready finacially, mentally or just made a bad decision one night. So because we don’t want to live with the consequences, we decide to take the life of a innocent child. I apologize for being blunt but that is exactly what abortion is. The most responsible action to take is being aware of the end results of our actions. If you plan to have pre-marital sex use condoms or contraceptions before making a decision that will result in making another terrible one in a few months. Every life is precious unto the Lord. The creation of a life gives God great pride because we operate as Him in doing so. When we were made in His image back in the book of Genesis, God made us creators also just like Him.

In abortion we pollute that gift in which God ordained us to walk in, and warp it into something very destructive. This was done also in the past in the book of Psalm 106:37-38, reads “They even sacrificed their sons and their daughters to the demons. They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters. By sacrificing them to the idols of Canaan, they polluted the land with murder.” This is speaking of when Israel worshiped the false god Ba’al, and to pay homage to Him destroyed the very children that they conceived for His “blessings.” Also Deuteronomy 27:25 reads, “Cursed is anyone who accepts payment to kill an innocent person.’And all the people will reply, Amen.” Their are many many more arguements to be had on just why Pro-Choice is against the will of God. I ask that we all take a look into the world of God and just see how wonderful Life is if we only submit unto His will. The next time the debate is raging just remember John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Stay Blessed!

Accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior today!

30 Dec


I want to offer those who visit this site a chance to receive the salvation that is in Jesus Christ! The opportunity to be born again through the perfect sacrifice of the sinless man, the God who became man in order to redeem His creation from the jaws of sin and death. Christianity is not a religion of works and ignorant beliefs, but is solely based off of having a personal relationship with Jesus that when God looks at us He sees the covering that we wear which is Christ. John 3:16 reads “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” If You truly put forth all your faith in the Lord Jesus and in the Cross of Christ, God will grant you salvation, and redeem your soul. Confess this with Me, ” Lord Jesus, I need you. Thank You for dying on the cross for my sins. I open the door of my life and receive you as my Savior and Lord. Thank You for forgiving my sins and giving me eternal life. Take control of the throne of my life. Make me the kind of person you want me to be. Amen”… Once you have confessed this with Your heart eternal salvation is now yours, find a good Bible based Church and confess your faith to others that Jesus Christ is Lord and is the only way!


Sanctified to the Lord Jesus Christ…

30 Dec


1 Timothy 4:5, “For it is sanctified by the word of God and prayer.”

Sanctification is defined as being set apart for sacred use; to make holy or purify. The Holy Bible strongly promotes sanctification or consecration to the Word of God throughout the scriptures as a means of giving Christians the insight into the mind of God, and His true purpose for your life. Constantly having the Lord on your mind and obeying exactly as the Bible states, will free us from the confines of this natural world and into the true Kingdom of God. Especially in a time when the things of the world will tell us things that are negative in the sense of the economy, physical health, and personnel security. Reverence the Holy Scriptures, due to the fact that God can has set apart those who truly believe and has blessed them for their faithfulness, as stated in Deuteronomy 2:7, “For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.” Never allow the enemy tell you other wise as to what your life will be, based to the fact that God always looks out for His children in good times and in bad times and the natural world has no jurisdiction on the actions of a supernatural God. Jesus preached this message in Luke 21:34-36 in saying, “And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” This is why we hold onto the Word of God because the more we believe and strengthen our Faith, based on what God says and not the world. We see His true plan for our lives, scripture states in John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” The Lord knows our needs based on Hebrews 4:14-16, “Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Lastly Romans 8:1 states, “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” I pray for more and more strong Christian believers to follow not the news of this world, but the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and sanctify themselves to His Godly attributes through the Holy Bible! Shalom…

Being a Watchman for Christ…

30 Dec


Ezekiel 33:1-6, “Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.”

Ezekiel chapter 33 describes the duties of the “Watchman.” The Lord appointed the prophet Ezekiel as a Watchman unto ancient Israel, to warn against the sinful iniquities of mankind coming against the Kingdom of God. The Prophet was to watch and warn the people by blowing the shofar (a rams horn) which acted as a warning or announcement unto the Israelites. In this case being used as a siren of danger about turning away from God, unto their own sinful desires and also unto false doctrine separating them from the Word of God. This passage of scripture is very important to the Church today to be ever so watchful against false doctrine trying to creep into the House of God. Many Churches refuse to preach against sin namely homosexuality, premarital sex, and educating and raising up our youth in the ways of the Lord. Many feel good messages are taught to keep people happy and comfortable in their current situation, giving them the false security that everything within themselves is alright when the Bible teaches otherwise. Romans 7:18 states, “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.” This warning is upon ever Christian that if we are not watchful and vigilant to warn others against what we know is sin, and a lie we will be held accountable in the eyes of God. We must constantly as long as we are in the flesh, remain cautious of the things we say, do, and give our time to in order to stay devoted unto the Lord Jesus Christ. This is not only for ourselves but also to our family, friends and loved ones. Be watchful for the sword of the abomination, and sound your shofar giving truth and knowledge unto the body of Christ, Shalom…

Jesus Christ, the Model of Perfection…

30 Dec


Psalm 1: 1-3, “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.”

Psalm 1:1-3, grants the read a look into the divine habits of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Jesus here is the “man,” referred to in verse 1 by King David as being prosperous in his ways. The Lord carefully ordered his way of living to have no part in the company of sinners, or follow after any that live outside His will for man. The Holy Spirit of God laid in the spirit of David to let the reader know that their is delight in the law of the Lord, namely the Word of God referenced later in Psalm 119:97-108, “O how love I thy law! it is my meditation all the day. Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me. How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. I have sworn, and I will perform it, that I will keep thy righteous judgments. I am afflicted very much: quicken me, O LORD, according unto thy word. Accept, I beseech thee, the freewill offerings of my mouth, O LORD, and teach me thy judgments.” This descriptive detail of Jesus, is the very same way all who believe should order their lives as Disciples of Christ! We should not enjoy the company of ungodly nonbelievers but follow the path of the righteous in order to be fed spiritually, and edify others in the body of Christ. Their is much joy in reading the scriptures and meditating on them so we too can live a prosperous life in the Lord. This proper meditation on each verse of the Holy Bible will plant us safely by the rivers of water (Holy Spirit) to bring forth fruit in due season, and we will not wither away but lead prosperous lives for the Lord. Psalm 1:1-3, speaks of not only here in the natural world but most importantly of the second coming of Jesus. We enjoy our time here but always yearn for that precious day in which we will hear “Well done.” I pray all will take the time to mold ourselves in the way of Jesus Christ as He walked here while on the Earth, being the perfect role model for humanity. God Bless!

The Omnipresence of God…

30 Dec


Psalm 139:7-10, “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”

The word omnipresence is defined as being present in every place at the same time; unbounded or having universal presence. The omnipresence of God is one of the divine characteristics of our Lord in which many believer’s in the Faith should study and apply in their lives today. Knowing that God almighty is in control of every situation that we go through is a comforting fact and a great Faith builder in being a Disciple of Jesus Christ. At times in the life of us as Believer’s, we have the tendency that when things do not go or turn out the way that we want that Jehovah is not with us when in fact He is the author and the finisher of all things in the lives of those who believe on Him, whether good or bad in our eyes. God is the ultimate craftsman! In knowing what each and every characteristic His children needs to develop or be strengthened in. Proverbs 15:3 states, “The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.” With God being present in Heaven and in the Earth as we know Deuteronomy 4:39, “Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else.” With Jehovah being ever present in our lives we need to look for Him and seek every opportunity to build up our Spirituality to know more of Him. In some cases this may be dealing with a death in the family, sickness, or a difficult co-worker. You see God knew before hand that this situation would arise, he is ever present! The Lord looks for us to deal with the ills of this world as Christ did and grow in the Faith. God may even cause Satan described in the Bible as our footstool (Romans 16:19-20) to cause disruption in our lives like the Lord allowed in the Book of Job. The central idea is to let all those who believe know that Jehovah is in control of our lives and not us. We have no purpose other than what He ordains for us to be. This gives many the freedom to live out his will and not our own. Job 2:10 states, “But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.” God uses the enemy in many ways to produce love, patience, kindness, virtue and moral excellence in His children by allowing hardship and temptation in our lives knowing that by resisting we grow more and more in the knowledge of Jesus Christ. Remember the next time someone wrongs you or your health may be taken for a season know that God is present and will see you through it. Keeping you always in His presence. Shalom

The Blood of Jesus Christ…

30 Dec


1 John 1:7, “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

Blood as defined in the English dictionary is, “a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substance (oxygen, nutrients) to the body’s cell, while along with transporting waste product away from those very same cells in.” Jehovah God is very well adapted to teaching His children spiritual occurrences through natural means for our own understanding. In this case the Holy Spirit uses the bodily functions of human blood to explain the Spiritual ramifications of Christ own shed blood on Calvary 2,000 years ago.

The Blood of Christ did more than just do away with the old testament sacrificial system, but just like the blood that runs through our own veins, the Lord’s blood carries the necessary substance spiritually for all who believe on Him to live a victorious life while we are still here in the flesh awaiting His return. The Word of God defines those in Christ as a body as read in, 1 Corinthians 12:12, “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.” As a collective we function as such, in the spreading of the Gospel of Christ with his blood carrying the much needed substance to all just like our own natural blood.

Jesus blood carries 3 very crucial nutrients to those who have accepted Jesus, with the first being forgiveness throughout the Body of Christ as read in Revelations 1:5 “And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood.” Knowing we are sinful but rely on the precious Blood of Jesus to cover all and make us right in the eyes of God. Our sins past present and future are cleansed! As long as we continue to follow Jesus and adhere to his precious blood. The second important nutrient is total victory! Christ blood gives us the power to overcome the powers of the enemy and the schemes laid before us, Revelations 12:11 states, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

The Lord will never leave or forsake any of His own in our time of need. Any and everything is given unto Us to overcome through our Faith in the Cross and what Jesus did on it. Much of what we endure is according to the will God in each season, to perfect our Faith as needed. Trials are to glorify the Father and promote Jesus Christ as His son. Their is no better testimony than that of a overcomer through the Blood of Jesus. The third function of the Blood of Christ to the body is sanctification, (being one with the Lord)Hebrews 10:10 says, “By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.” In knowing Jesus we become one with Him, also having His strength and right relationship with Jehovah God. The Blood is total victory for the Body of Christ, and all who truly know Him. I pray that we all come together as one body and allow the Blood of Jesus to Forgive, Sanctify, and grant all total victory in Christ. Shalom…

Life in the Cross of Christ…

30 Dec


John 14: 6,”Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

While studying the Word of God, it is very important for every student of the Bible to know exactly what the Messiah is saying to His Disciples both then and now. This is not only important for building our Faith in the Cross of Christ, but also when it comes to ministering to the world and edifying the body of Christ. Jesus in John 14:6, touches on three very important aspects in which all of mankind is redeemed through His perfect sacrifice on the Cross. Jesus states that He is the way, truth and the life in order to be made right in the eyes of God. We will break down first in THE WAY that mankind is made right with God, which is taking on His righteous and accepting the Messiah as Lord and Savior of our life. All men due to the fall of Adam and Eve are born into sin and shaped in iniquity, separated from God the Father.

All, when we are birthed into this world have no sense of right or wrong adhering more at times to our flesh rather than the Spirit of God. This thorn in the flesh called sin, causes all to fall short of the Holiness of Jehovah and the original divine plan that was laid out for us as children of God. The Holy Bible states that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) which guarantees all eternal separation from God, that is until we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. Christ is the only one to walk the Earth truly pure and innocent in the eyes of God never knowing any sin as read in 2 Corinthians 5:21, “For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.” Jesus instead took our sins to the cross, 1 Peter 2:24 states, “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” God’s word never changes.

In His love for us a sacrifice had to be made, with that being Jesus Christ the only one pure enough to wash away every sin and redeem corrupted man. The second aspect of John 14:6, is that the Messiah is THE TRUTH, that fulfilled old testament prophecy. Jesus being born of a virgin as read in Isaiah 7:14 is fulfilled in Matthew 1:20-23. The Old testament says Jesus would be of the House of Judah in Isaiah 37:31 fulfilled in Matthew 1:1-2, 16. Isaiah 9:1-2 says Christ would from Nazareth of Galilee and documented in Matthew 2:22-23.The betrayal for 30 pieces of silver in Zechariah 11:12, fulfilled in Matthew 26:14-15. Along the mission to the Gentiles for salvation as recorded inIsaiah 49:1-4, 6 and fulfilled in Matthew 12:14-21.

Last in John 14: 6 Jesus is THE LIFE.This quality is always the most often overlooked in a Christians life. 2 Peter 1:5-9, which reads, “But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love. For if these things are yours and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.” The above list are moral attributes to govern our lives by that all in the Faith of Jesus Christ must allow to overflow in our lives, along with FORGIVENESS. Once we realize the debt we could not pay, but He who could (THE WAY) and (THE TRUTH) of He that came and how to live our lives (THE LIFE) we will finally see Jehovah the Father! Shalom…

Jesus, The Willing Messiah…

30 Dec


Mark 1:40-42 (NKJV), “Now a leper came to Him, imploring Him, kneeling down to Him and saying to Him, “If You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus, moved with compassion, stretched out His hand and touched him, and said to him, “I am willing; be cleansed.” As soon as He had spoken, immediately the leprosy left him, and he was cleansed.”

A good testimony of the will of the Father God, is that He is willing to meet His children in any walk of life now, in order to give them salvation. Mark 1:40-42, speaks of a man stricken with leprosy and seeking healing in the Messiah, this story is also symbolic of many who suffer and struggle with the sin nature we all are born into. God is not so far off that He does not know we are in desperate need to be aligned to His will. The Father knows the heart of each and every one of us and in His generosity, offers us sinless protection in Jesus Christ. No matter what walk of life no matter what sin is currently binding us and drawing us away from God, the scripture says He has compassion for us as we are in turmoil. Salvation is for all at any moment. Ephesians 1:3-8 (NKJV), states “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence.” It is God’s “good pleasure,” that we be holy and blameless in His eyes. This is according for us as Children of God to see and ask for a change in our life, namely His will. Revelations 3:20 (NKJV) reads, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” It doesn’t matter where we are at in life, or how far we think that we are from the Lord, the Messiah is willing if we only care to ask that He come into our life and make us whole. Many of us have been abandoned by loved ones, addicted to narcotics, indulging in lustful desires but God is still hear for us if we choose to believe in the son Jesus Christ. I always remember Ezekiel 16:6 (NKJV), where the Prophet records the love of God for Jerusalem who where given into much sin. “And when I passed by you and saw you struggling in your own blood, I said to you in your blood, ‘Live!’ Yes, I said to you in your blood, ‘Live!’ God is saying the same to Us today, as a people who struggle with sin and our true identity in this world. Can we look to Him and ask “Lord are you willing,” and the answer is always “Yes!” Shalom…


Jesus Christ the great “I AM.”

30 Dec

John 8:58 (NKJV), ” Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

One of the most important beliefs of the Christian faith is knowing and believing that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. The belief that God sent His son to Earth to be born of a virgin to bring salvation to the world. In the coming times many will try to distort the truth of the deity of Christ, by saying He was not truly God but only a man who brought knowledge into the world of how to live a satisfying life unto God (YAH) and nothing more. The Bible is clear on the matter though of who Christ was as well as the words spoken by Jesus Himself stating that He is indeed the great I AM. This term “I AM,” refers back to the book of Exodus chapter 3:14 (NKJV) in which when God spoke to Moses stating, “And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” I AM meaning YAHOVEH or YAH for short, the self existent living God. Jesus used this same statement several times in the Gospel of John. The first is John 6:35 (NKJV) (as well as verses 41,48,51, of the same chapter) “And Jesus said to them, “I AM the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” Here the Messiah is letting His followers know He and the Father are one in nature and the believer has everything they will need in Him. John 8: 12 (NKJV), reads “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I AM the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Once again Christ is referring to YAH and Himself as one, bringing light unto the world. John 10:7,9 (NKJV) Jesus states, “Then Jesus said to them again, “Most assuredly, I say to you, I AM the door of the sheep.” Letting us know that He is a protector to His sheep (us) from the trials of this world. John 10:11,14 supports the same claim of Jesus being the protector from those who are in Him from all harm of this world. In John 11:25 (NKJV), Jesus said to her, “I AM the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.” Christ professes eternal life for those who believe on Him granted by the living God (YAH) who raised the Messiah from the dead to show His sacrifice was good in His eyes for the sins of the world. John 14: 6 (NKJV), “Jesus said to him, “I AM the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” Letting all know that He is all truth and knowledge of the living God for those spiritually dead. Jesus Christ is the only one who was able to keep the old testament law to please the Father, and offer up Himself as a perfect sacrifice for our sins. This is why all must receive Christ and repentence. Lastly Jesus in John 15:1, 5 (NKJV) the Messiah states “I AM the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser.” The old testament states many times that Israel is YAH’s true vine but due to their idolatry and unfaithfulness never bore fruit for the living God. Here states that He in return will make up where Israel and we as human being’s failed to trust in God. Jesus the son is the Father, and the Father is the son in the same essence and substance. I pray none of us forget these scriptures and grow in knowledge of the New Testament scriptures to state Jesus Christ is the great I AM! Shalom…
