Built to Stand

Bring in the clothes from off of the line. I think this storm is here for a time.   You have laid the foundation for to build me a house on the rock that is found on higher ground.   Won’t be no water to swell this wood. Won’t be no fire to burn her […]

Jesus – Born Under the Law

Jesus, the last of the Adam kind (1 Cor 15:45), came to finish off the horrible future Adam started for all mankind (Rom 5:18).
