I have great news for all who are adopted. It’s not a dirty word and it’s a great privilege to be adopted. So, cease from being angry, depressed, feeling unloved and whatever other negative emotions that I have witnessed those who know that they are adopted go through. Much like we all are or once were we are or were strangers to the FATHER GOD because CHRIST JESUS was not living within us or not presently living in us and we were not living within HIM. But once we heard the voice of the Holy Spirit calling out to us and we believed in CHRIST JESUS from the heart we became new in HIM because what we once were, was natural, earthly, and worldly led by the lust of our emotions and flesh. But in CHRIST JESUS we become supernatural. FATHER GOD took us from being children of sin and placed HIS favor and protection in and on us. And just as GOD gives to HIS children the exact same inheritance that HIS begotten and beloved SON JESUS has, natural parents also leave an inheritance to the child or children that they have adopted because they are not to be seen any differently from a child or children who came from the bodies of their parents.

I will be bragging more on what CHRIST JESUS has done for me rather than write in the way most of you have grown accustomed. Hopefully in my bragging of who I am in CHRIST JESUS those of you who know that you don’t live in JESUS and JESUS does not live in you will come to HIM today rather than later.

I am so thankful to be adopted and that I am like CHRIST JESUS in every way. Though there are some things that I have not seen manifested in my life yet, does not mean that I can’t do them. I am victorious in every area of my life because I’m adopted of my FATHER GOD. I know that I am a child of the Living GOD who is my FATHER because I have HIS Spirit and I can without reservation call HIM my DADDY, HE’s not just my FATHER but my DADDY. It was easy for me to relate to GOD being my DADDY because males can be father’s by impregnating a female, but it takes a real and nobleman to be a daddy. Daddy’s are providers, protectors, teachers, gainfully employed and all things positive towards and for their children. This is what I saw in my biological father and daddy. FATHER GOD is my provider, protector, teacher and everything I need HIM to be for me. HE has no need to work because HE is the Creator of everything and HE owns them all. I am in the house of my FATHER GOD this house is my home; I have been given a name that carries no shame and it is everlasting. I can and will never be cut off from HIM because I am HIS daughter.

I have been redeemed by my Big Brother CHRIST JESUS from the curse of the law; paid for in full; I can’t be exchanged for something better, and I can’t be returned because the sale was final. The Laws of Moses are actually inscribed on our heart this is why we know right from wrong and why we know maybe not in accurate order but we know the Ten Commandments because we are lawless without CHRIST JESUS and because we are not in HIM, HE is not in us and without JESUS living in us and we live in JESUS, FATHER GOD is not our FATHER or DADDY. Our father is satan and we faithfully obey his commands. But once we are adopted by willingly believing and accepting the gift of salvation offered to us by CHRIST JESUS all parental rights that satan once had on us is stripped from him and there is nothing that he can do about it. Ha-ha, I love it. And because I believed in CHRIST JESUS with many others before and after me; we have been given the authority to become the children of FATHER GOD, heirs with CHRIST JESUS all because we believe in the name of CHRIST JESUS. Ha, glory to the Almighty GOD for HE is worthy to be praised! Thank YOU, JESUS, for buying me back from that serpent of old. I’m joyfully adopted!

Romans 8:15; Is.56:5; Galatians 4:5; Jn. 1:12





For some who may know the general sense of what an advocate does often will get the true meaning incorrect. An advocate is an attorney or mediator who speaks up on our behalf. Some believe that an advocate begs all because they may hear the advocate use the word plea, this is not correct. When an advocate makes a plea on our behalf, he/she know exactly what to say and when to say something that is beneficial on our behalf. The advocate’s position is to get the judge; another advocate or someone we are in dispute with to view things from another reasonable perspective. The advocate will argue in support of a claim without raising his/her voice or using words that reflect the low vocabulary in which we often practice in defense against the claim of another. In scripture, we discover that CHRIST JESUS is called our Advocate, but we may not properly understand HIS position for us in this case. In every case, there are two sides the defense and the prosecutor. CHRIST JESUS is our DA and satan is the SA. In the courts of heaven, satan is always bringing about accusations against the children of the Most High GOD because we are incapable of thinking, seeing, speaking, listening and doing things as perfectly as JESUS did. However, this does not mean that we are not perfect in the eyes of the FATHER because when HE looks at us all HE sees is HIS SON’s precious blood covering us as HE listens to the plea from the Advocate. And, better than Perry Mason or Matlock depending on your generation our case is won and unlike Perry Mason or Matlock who have lost at least one case our Advocate never loses a case and never has to petition the court for a repeal of judgment.

The Advocate our DA or Mediator will never switch sides HE cannot and will not defend anyone who is not HIS client, meaning that the only clients our Advocate will speak up for are those who are true believers, we must be washed in the blood of JESUS and HE must reside within our heart as we must reside within HIM. The test that we have as knowing CHRIST JESUS to be our helper is to know without a shadow of a doubt that we belong to HIM and HE belongs to us. Our being the children of the Holy GOD will be the desire that we have not to sin, but, because there are times when we will either willingly (most often when irritated) or unwillingly (unaware sin or a mistake) sin we have an Advocate in heaven who is praying for us and speaking with our FATHER on our behalf. CHRIST JESUS has the complete approval of HIS FATHER so that when we come into the presence of our FATHER, CHRIST JESUS is the One doing the speaking because HE is the Righteous One. The one who will always find fault with us because we do err and sin is satan and his cohort of demons. They are the accusers of the brethren/accusers of the children of GOD. What they are constantly measuring us by is the Law of Moses because the law will never mix well with grace it’s like trying to perfectly blend together oil and water, it can’t be done we will always see them being separated. CHRIST JESUS died and now is alive seated at the right hand of the FATHER speaking up for us. Regardless of our believing or not there is only one True GOD and we have One True Advocate and HE is the only One who can speak for us. Having a mortal person who has the same challenges that we have is not qualified to speak up for us with the Almighty GOD. No human, none has the qualifications to be the just Advocate that we need before the FATHER. JESUS CHRIST is the only One who is perfect, without faults and who satisfied the FATHER so completely that JESUS was given the name that is above every other name and the position that everything must bow down to HIM be it above in the heavens, on earth, and in hell and our tongues will confess that HE alone is the LORD. We ourselves can go to the FATHER without trembling but rather in the boldness of CHRIST JESUS. Never should we rely on other humans to speak to the FATHER on our behalf, doing such is no different than when the High Priest who would go into the Holy of Holies by observing to do all the ritualistic portions of a ceremony in the Old Testament. The only human we are to rely on in heaven is CHRIST JESUS because HE is all Man and all GOD. HE is not a half breed or any other type of breed labels that humans are called. CHRIST JESUS can save everyone who desires to receive HIS gift of Salvation, HE will never go against our own will. It does not matter to HIM how horrible we see ourselves and it may be true that we are sinners in the worst way just as Saul saw himself before he was transformed into Paul. We are not impossible to be forgiven by CHRIST JESUS because it is you alone that HE suffered, died and is now alive for. No matter how despicable we see ourselves or don’t see ourselves sin is sin and there is no big sin and little sin. CHRIST JESUS is the only One who will bring us from being the farthest to the nearest of GOD. And once we belong to GOD, CHRIST JESUS will be our Advocate in heaven until HE returns to gather us to HIMself in the sky. JESUS is not in the manger, on the cross or in the borrowed tomb any longer. JESUS grew up and became a Man, as Man HE died on the cross for our sins HE had none and as Man, HE was placed in a borrowed tomb where HE woke up after three days and was seen by over five hundred people at one time. Today, CHRIST JESUS is in heaven in the presence and seated at the right hand of GOD the FATHER on our behalf.

1 John 2:1; Rom. 8:34; 1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 7:25, 9:24




To be alive is to be opposite of being dead. Every organ is working in the manner it was designed to work. To be alive is to be in a state of action, undestroyed, unexpired and unextinguished. This description is all about the flesh. But, there also is a description regarding our spirit, sure we are animated to look alive or to being alive as we know what being alive is. However, there is an example of our being alive or dead in our spirit. We must return to the FATHER just like the prodigal son had done. Likewise, our FATHER is constantly looking to see if HE can see us approaching from the horizons and when HE does see us, HE runs to us to greet us and throws HIS arms around us to welcome us back to HIMself. Giving us a kiss on the neck. It is through our faith in CHRIST JESUS that our real self, our spirit man comes alive.

When CHRIST JESUS came back from the dead, this is a great example of what it is for us in our spirit. Though CHRIST JESUS did not return as a Spirit, HIS return was that of flesh so that Thomas could feel HIM with his own hands as well as see for himself. For forty days CHRIST JESUS demonstrated without any doubt convincing evidence. They got to see him as HE spoke with them about the Kingdom of GOD. I find this awesome because we recall that JESUS showed HIMself to HIS disciples, but we don’t recall in our conversation how over five hundred believers at one time saw HIM as well. HE did not return to the five hundred and speak with them over the forty days HE was alive from the dead as HE did with HIS disciples. It was a one-time event. Some of those people had not tasted natural death but some among them were the ones who had died and made alive again. These were the ones who were resurrected by CHRIST JESUS but did not come out or show themselves alive until after CHRIST JESUS returned from the dead. Mt. 27:52-53. WoW, can you imagine along with me that three days after the crucifixion not only does CHRIST JESUS walk out of HIS borrowed tomb but the loved ones of others who believed in HIM before they fell asleep/dead also showed themselves? This must have been an incredible sight, people know that you are dead and here you come strutting in talking about some Hi! This is and was phenomenal!!

When Adam our ancestral father the one who had provided us with our DNA and our blood of sin. Disobeyed the FATHER by eating from the tree which he was warned not to eat from it caused him and everyone who came from him to be dead. Each and every one of us are descendants from Adam even the baby which you are carrying inside your belly at this reading. But we have a blessed hope in CHRIST JESUS because HE is our last Adam and it is only in HIM that we are made alive not just in the flesh but in the spirit. The spirit is our true being, not our flesh and soul. Therefore, we need to have our spirit alive within us because if it remains asleep/dead we are only zombies.

Without our spirit, without our real-selves being alive we remain dead and we are failures, we are trespassers and we are continually disobedient to the FATHER and the ways of CHRIST JESUS. However, with our spirit, our real-selves being alive then we are truly alive in CHRIST. This is what is known of our being given HIS grace to be saved, it is HIS kindness which saved us.

This is for the men only and maybe for the women who are in countries that mutilate you. Circumcision is no longer a requirement from GOD the FATHER. It is the heart that must be circumcised and what is required from the FATHER. Without allowing our heart to become circumcised we will remain dead and have corrupt natures. We remain spiritually dead because of sins. But, when we choose CHRIST JESUS to enter our heart, we become spiritually alive together with CHRIST JESUS because all our failures, all our sins, and trespasses have been forever and irrevocably forgiven.

Now, if we are alive on the earth and we are a true believer in CHRIST JESUS we will get to witness the coming of CHRIST JESUS and hear HIS beckoning us to join HIM up in the air. However, while we are looking up at HIM, we will see other spirits rising in the air before us and that’s because the dead in CHRIST JESUS must rise first.

JESUS CHRIST suffered for everyone in the world so that we would not have to receive the punishment that HE took. It will do us good to read in the four gospels regarding the punishment that HE suffered on behalf of us but do it using the imagination, see the gross misdeeds of the justice HE got from the soldiers and people who were incensed by satan. See HIM being beaten, spat on, having HIS beard plucked out of HIS face in chunks by the hands of others. See HIM having that crown of plated thorns smashed upon HIS head and then see HIM walking up the road towards HIS death barely able to stand and walk let alone carrying HIS own cross up that hill. But, notice that because of the exhaustion and manner of fatigue, HE received help. Then HE willingly laid HIMself down on that cross, HE was not put on the cross by anyone. JESUS CHRIST did this the once and HE will never do any of this again for anyone because what HE had done for us was perfectly acceptable by HIS FATHER. JESUS was innocent of all charges brought onto HIM. Even Pilate saw no fault in HIM, but, because of the pressure from the crowd and because it was the destiny that JESUS had to fulfill. This is what was required to lead us back to the FATHER. Physically JESUS died but spiritually by HIS own Holy Spirit GOD made CHRIST JESUS alive for us and HE walked out and away from where HE was buried.

CHRIST JESUS is alive! HE was once dead but now, today HE is alive! And HIS being alive was and is not temporary HE is alive forevermore and eternally and so will we be. Ha-ha, we have nothing to fear regarding death that is unless we want to, or we are dying in our sins because no one has shared with us that we can be alive in our spirit because of JESUS. CHRIST JESUS has authority over death and HE is in possession of the keys of death and hell.

*I have provided many scriptures that I have not written about, hopefully, you will read them in your time of study and share with others. Elder Briscoe

Acts 1:3; Matt. 28:17; Mrk. 16:12, 14; Lk. 24:34, 36; Jhn. 20:19, 26, 21:1, 14; 1 Corinthians 15:5-7, 22, 51-52; Jhn. 5:28-29; Ephesians 2:5; Rom. 6:4-5; Colossians 2:13; 1 Thessalonians 4:15; 1 Peter 3:18; Revelation 1:18, 4:9, 19:20




The real being of GOD. The self-existing GOD. The Being of all beings. GOD is eternal and immutable. HIS constancy and faithfulness in fulfilling HIS promises include all time, past, present, and future. HE is not only the I AM what I AM at present, but HE is the I AM what I have been, and I AM the GOD of what I will be and will be what I AM. John 8:58.

The question arose from Moses when he was speaking with GOD on top of the mountain when GOD/JESUS appeared before Moses in a burning yet unconsumed bush. “What is HIS name?” Today the question is still being asked. Our GOD has many names, and, in this name, I AM, HE was revealed to us as the GOD who is self-existing, eternal and very real. The answer Moses received from GOD/JESUS was that should the question come up of what MY name is, tell them that “I AM who I AM” “I AM has sent me to you”. Today, we need to be reminded that CHRIST JESUS the Creator GOD is still today “I AM” HE is still just to name a few.

  • The LORD GOD
  • The LORD
  • YAH the One who rides on the clouds
  • The LORD Most High
  • I AM the LORD
  • The Creator (Jhn. 1:10)
  • The Son of Man

JESUS warned just how critical it is to believe in HIM, that if anyone who is of the world and still the children of the beneath/hell, the children of satan, that they will die in their sins. They will when it’s much too late look for HIM. To believe in CHRIST JESUS we must believe first in our heart. Faith must always begin in the heart of anyone. There will be those who are in the last minutes of dying who may not be able to confess CHRIST JESUS from their mouth but by believing in their heart they will receive the gift of salvation. In this case, water baptism is impossible. However, for those of us who do have faith in CHRIST JESUS and willingly confess that JESUS is the LORD we should, but it will not cancel out our salvation if we are not water baptized. But just as CHRIST JESUS was submerged beneath the water so should we want the same. And it was when JESUS CHRIST was crucified that those who may have heard HIM teach finally believed that HE was who HE said that HE was and is who HE said that HE is. A great example is a Roman Soldier who may have abused and taunted JESUS but definitely pierced HIS side to verify that HE was dead. John 19:34. Mockers then and mockers today who refuse to believe in CHRIST JESUS will ask have we seen JESUS. I believe that JESUS gave an answer that we today may use. Of, course we may have to tweak it a wee bit to fit our language of today. But JESUS said that before Abraham was born that HE existed/I AM. Yet, we know or should be informed that Abraham is our father of faith because HE believed in CHRIST JESUS before JESUS was born of mankind. Before HE clothed HIMself in mortal flesh and breathed, lived, did normal activities of the day, learned from HIS earthly father of whom HE did not come from the trade of being a carpenter. Matt. 13:55 and Mrk. 6:3. CHRIST JESUS has and never will change, HE is the same yesterday, today (present) and forever the I AM. HE is not like a man who constantly changes, and HIS years will never fail. CHRIST JESUS is the Alpha and HE is the Omega; the Beginning and the End/Last. I AM who is the LORD Almighty, The LORD, The YES, the LORD Most High, The YAH, JESUS The CHRIST is HE who was, and HE who is to come, HE is the Almighty, HE is the I AM. CHRIST JESUS is “Holy, Holy, Holy, The LORD GOD Almighty who was and is coming back!

However, though I AM having many names there is only one name that is above every name. It is the name that we must use in our heart, in our mind, and from our lips. It is at this name that everyone knee will bow either willingly (above the earth) or unwillingly (beneath the earth) and our tongues in like manner will willingly (above the earth) or unwillingly (beneath the earth) and openly acknowledge and confess that;

JESUS CHRIST is The LORD to the glory of GOD The FATHER.

For HE is the great I AM.

Exodus 3:14, 6:3; John 8:24, 28, 58; Heb. 13:8; Rev. 1:8, 4:8





Ah, the angels; we simply love to speak about them and yet we don’t understand them. We call our loved one’s angels and believe that when a person dies that they are transformed into angels. Angels are messengers, they come to tell or announce a message from GOD. They are ministering spirits, ministers of GOD with intelligence employed by GOD to communicate HIS will to us. In the Word of GOD, we are shown various angels and what it is that they do. Throughout the Old Testament we will find “the Angel of the LORD or GOD” this is JESUS” Heb.1:4, Rev.10:1. CHRIST JESUS is the head of the church as shown to us in Rev. 10:1. Another angel that we are shown is satan, he is an evil spirit. And he and all the angels that followed him will be judged by us, 1 Cor. 6:3, Rev. 9:1. Angels are ambassadors of GOD, Rev. 2 and 3. Angels are assigned to execute judgment, Rev. 16. Humans are not transformed after death into angels though we will have their likeness once we join CHRIST JESUS after HE returns to collect who belong to HIM.

The Angel of LORD; Messenger of the LORD, Angel of GOD, this is JESUS pre-incarnate, this was before HE clothed HIMself in human flesh. JESUS spoke with Hagar the mother of Ishmael the firstborn of Abraham, HE also spoke with Abraham and Jacob.

JESUS CHRIST as the Angel of the LORD, first showed HIMself to Moses in a burning bush speaking with Moses on the mountain.  We all know and love the scripture about the dividing of the Red Sea, it is here that we see the LORD is the One who caused the land to be dry for the crossing over. Here is not where HE showed HIMself to Moses and the Israelites as the Angel of the LORD but the LORD who is in control. It is here that JESUS CHRIST reveals that even the seas obey HIM. The Angel of GOD [JESUS] not only went before Moses and the Israelites to guide by night in the form of a pillar of fire. During the day the Angel of GOD [JESUS] transformed HIMself into a pillar of cloud and became their rear guard following behind them.  The Angel of the LORD [JESUS] spoke to Moses providing him with a promise of bringing the Israelites to the Promised Land and giving him instructions.

Some manuscripts show that it was the Angel of the LORD who stirred up the water in the pool at Bethesda but I myself do not like to put in or take out what the scriptures are teaching us. I don’t see in many manuscripts that will confirm that it was JESUS as the Angel of the LORD as being the One who stirred up the water in the pool. However, it is without argument that an angel who was assigned by GOD to come down at various seasons or times to stir up the water in the pool and that whoever was able to get into the pool first is the one who would be healed.

 The Angel of the LORD is JESUS who is spoken of in the book of Acts regarding Moses who was rejected yet made ruler by GOD. Moses was sent by GOD to free the Israelites from bondage and he was to rule them only by the help of the Messenger Angel [JESUS] who showed HIMself to Moses in the burning bush which was not consumed by the fire.

Now let’s look at how the evil spirit, the fallen angel who is not of GOD came to temp JESUS when JESUS was weak in HIS human form. The evil fallen angel came to JESUS and tried to convince HIM that HE was not the SON of GOD. What is missing here is “delight and begotten”. The FATHER said, and it was heard not only by JESUS but by John the Baptist his cousin who baptized HIM and by all who witnessed the baptism of JESUS. We must never forget who we are and whose we are in CHRIST JESUS regardless of what people tell us or say about us. And though we know that we are never alone, that we have assigned angels who have charge over us and will be given a special charge to keep us. Never tempt the LORD our GOD when we know that what we are being tempted with is dangerous. As was stated above it is proven that in our grief it makes us feel a wee bit better to say that our loved ones when dead have been transformed into angels. This is not true first we don’t know but we do hope that our loved ones are waiting to be awakened by CHRIST in HIS return for HIS church. If our loved ones truly believed even if done with their final breath that JESUS is the LORD then they along with us will be like angels meaning that it’s not our flesh that will be joining CHRIST but our spirit and it is not clear to us what we will actually look like. So, we need to dispel that we will have wings and may resemble all the idols that we have in our homes, vehicles, and place of employment depicting what angels may look like.

Genesis 16:7, 21:17, 22:11, 15, 31:11; Exodus 3:2, 14:19 21, 23:20; John 5:4; Acts 7:35; Matthew 4:6, 22:30, 26:53; Ps. 91:11; 1 Jhn. 3:2; 2 Ki. 6:17; Dan. 7:10




We anoint our bodies daily, but we call it moisturizing. We also anoint our meats when preparing them to be cooked. We never think what we are doing or pay attention to the spiritual aspect of what we all do and take for granted. In the natural, anointing is the rubbing or smearing of oil or anything that contains oil. But in the spirit when we are anointed not only is it awesome, it’s for the purpose of consecration. When GOD anoints HIS chosen it’s because we are of high antiquity just as kings, prophets, and priest (apostles, prophets, evangelist, pastors, and teachers).

Every child of the Living GOD is anointed, and we need to be aware of this fact. We have had our head anointed with GOD’s holy oil and we have been welcomed and are HIS honored guest. The oil that is used on us is fresh it’s not spoiled, stale or stagnant. Just as JESUS was anointed with fragrant oil on HIS head and feet so are, we.

I know that we have the HEALER living on the inside and by all those stripes that JESUS took for us when HE was beaten, we are healed in HIM. Not only that but on that cross, JESUS took every disease, illness, and sickness yet, for some reason our flesh is attacked. Therefore, we have been instructed to get ourselves to the elders (anointed ministers of GOD) to have them pray over us and they (me) will anoint the sick with oil in the name of our LORD CHRIST JESUS. In our rubbing oil on the sick it will be the prayer of faith and our laying our hands on the sick that JESUS the Healer will work through us so that the sick will recover.

Dear beloved siblings of mine in CHRIST JESUS, I want to leave you with this. We have an anointing from the Holy One/Spirit and it is through His teaching and speaking to us that we will be equipped with the knowledge that is crucial to us. The Holy Spirit is poured on us by the hand of CHRIST JESUS and in HIS Holy Spirit, we will know all not some but all HIS truth. We are established in CHRIST JESUS and HE has anointed us in GOD. The GOD that JESUS called upon on that cross hates sin because its lawless and nothing in it represents who GOD is. We are anointed with the oil of gladness; therefore we seem peculiar when we should be having a mental breakdown or stressed out due to the trials that we must go through. But when hard times hit us, we are not facing them alone, JESUS is right there with us making sure that we don’t fall and remain there, making sure that we don’t sit in our troubles but go through them. Oh, praise GOD and HIS SON CHRIST JESUS because the anointing remains in us. So, if we didn’t know, now we know.

Psalms 23:5, 92:10; Lk. 7:46; James 5:14, Mrk.6:13, 18; 1 John 2:20, 27; 2 Cor.1:21; Heb. 1:9




Who is an antichrist? Any person or group, that opposes CHRIST. Followers of the antichrist are opposed to christian religion. Followers of the antichrist are contrariety to the christian religion. The word is very clear this is opposition to CHRIST and HIS followers.

From the moment CHRIST JESUS appeared from the dead there has been opposition, Mt.28:11-15. This was the beginning of the deception of the last hour or the last days from the enemies of CHRIST. There have been and there will be many antichrists but there is one coming who is the son of perdition, the one who is entirely lost and ruined and comes from utter destruction. He is from the state of misery and the eternal death. He is the man of sin and he will be revealed in the later day.

We are always to beware and be watchful because on this day we are surrounded by many who are deceivers, who are antichrist. We are to reject teachers who do not teach what CHRIST taught. So, how do we recognize an antichrist? First, we must know that they exist while we are breathing this air and they are living and working and attending our schools right along with us. Also, I know that this may be difficult for some of you to accept but they are attending some of our church services or functions. I have seen people who are in prominent positions attend christian services, funerals and award ceremonies. I will not mention some of these figures but if I did you would know who these men and women are. These people deny that CHRIST came in the flesh or that HE was born from a virgin or that HE is alive. They downplay HIS authority when speaking of HIM as being only a prophet and a teacher. This refusal to admit that CHRIST came in flesh and blood is a true mark of one who deceives and is antichrist. We all know people in our circle of associates, family, and friends who refuse to acknowledge that JESUS CHRIST came to this world as a human being and those that do this are enemies of CHRIST and we who are blood washed CHRISTians. In Jn. 2:22 it’s put so very well; “Who is a liar but he who denies that JESUS is the CHRIST? He is antichrist who denies the FATHER and the SON.

1 John 2:18; 2 Thess. 2:3; 2 John 7
