    The news of people dying has recently, somehow become no news. This is just what it is albeit it’s comes with very sad feelings, a loved one might not be seen ever again. But truth is for all those who totally surrender their own way at the altar of THE SUPREME GOD’S WAY( JESUS CHRIST), THERE IS FULL ASSURANCE THAT THEIR EARTHLY DEATH IS ONLY A PASSAGE TO THE REAL LIFE FILLED NEVER ENDING PEACE, JOY N BEAUTY. AND SURELY EVERYONE OF SUCH WILL DEFINITELY MEET AGAIN. IN THE BLOOD IS LIFE AND JESUS CHRIST, THE WORDS FROM JEHOVAH’S GOD’S MOUTH THAT CREATED ALL THINGS,EVEN LIFE IN US, SHED HIS BLOOD. AND IN THE PROCESS RELEASING THAT SAME LIFE THAT HAS NO BEGINNING NOR END FOR THOSE THAT BELIEVE IN HIM;( THE WAY TO LIVE WHICH MEANS,SURRENDERING OUR WILL TO ALMIGHTY GOD’S WILL) AS AGAINST THAT REBELLIOUS WILL INITIATED BY SATAN TO ADAM/EVE WHICH ACTIVATES OUR WORLDLY INCLINATION, RIGHT FROM BIRTH). THAT INCLINATION OF EVERYONE BORN INTO THIS WORLD IS THE MOTHER OF WORLDLY EVIL, CLIMAXING INTO FINAL DESTRUCTION AND ONLY THOSE WHO REPENT( RETURNING TO GOD’S WAY( JESUS CHRIST; LIVING ONLY FOR GOD’S GLORY N NOT SELF GLORY WILL ESCAPE THAT DESTRUCTION BECAUSE THE ALMIGHTY GOD’S WAY CANNOT PERISH BUT ITS ETERNAL LIFE.). MAY JEHOVAH ELOHIM OUR SUPREME GOD HAVE MERCY ON BARNABAS IMENGER AND GRANT SAVATION TO HIS SOUL.
