of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and

of Christ so that we do not enter the bottomless pit. It begins from

bondwoman and her son, for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir
with the son of the freewoman."

all things. We can feel more joyful to give than to receive until we
can give our whole life to God like the donkey that Jesus rode.
The ministry to God must be signified by sacrifices.
Nevertheless, Jesus as the Head or the Heavenly Bridegroom will be
responsible for our life and determine all steps of our life. He
will stretch out His merciful hands to perform the miracle in the

and had suffered many things from many physicians. She had spent all
that she had and was no better, but rather grew worse.
