“3 We are bound to thank God (Elohim: the Magistrates, Great, Mighty Ones, etc..) always for you, brethren, as it is meet, because that your faith groweth exceedingly, and the charity (in Greek “agape”: affection, benevolence, etc..) of every one of you all toward each other aboundeth;”
Paul here defining faith and brothers in faith, that of growing in works of caring and love for others and one another; a moment to pause and think. Paraphrasing YH’shua, “May Your (YHWH Elohim’s) Will (Word and Works) be done on earth (in us) as it is in heaven.” Amein and Amein 🙂
“12 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.”
Please be ready, salvation is in following the example of the obedient son, YH’shua, the Hebrew Messiah.
“13 Watch ye, stand fast (continue, present selves) in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.“
