difficulties until the time of antichrist's reigning over the
world for three years and half and the judgment of God comes to the

God is in our life.
It means the power of His love we can receive in the Holy
Communion. The sacrifice of Christ unites us with Him as the body
with its Head. We are as John leaning on Jesus' bosom that we

anything and obey Him whatever risk may come.
As a result,
the hand of God's mercy determines our death and life. Our
beautiful successful future and all things in our life are in His
merciful hand. His merciful hands do all things for us until we are
perfect and as glorious as Jesus is to be able to welcome Jesus'
second coming on glorious clouds. We enter the kingdom of peace a
thousand years and New Jerusalem.
