Truest Love is genuine and has already won. Calvary was not in vain, and Christ will triumph over all. So "why are you cast down, O my soul? and why are you disquieted within me? hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God." Psalm 43:5

America needs God more than God needs America. 

Is there spiritual compromise in your life today? Simply.. turn to Jesus

Lord, help us by giving us Your anointing to pray earnestly alone and together as a nation! 

Man, what's started out here in the USA as freedom of pure religion, is becoming freedom from pure religion.. I mean real relationship with God through Christ. Didn't we ditch dead religion and the trouble with it in old England?

The ultimate solution here is a biblical revival. Meaning here.. restored real to it's original authentic condition. It's time for it. Let it start with us. Why? Ginormous need.

"For they sow the wind And they reap the whirlwind." Hosea 8:7

"Jesus used the institution of marriage as a picture of His love for the church and our love for Him. This gives us an opportunity to let our light shine and show the watching world a beautiful example of a good and loving marriage. Have we done that? Even as Christians, have we done as good of a job as we can with marriage? Marriage is a big deal to God. He thought of it, created it, blesses it and uses it as a picture to a lost world. The Bible tells husbands to love their wives as Christ loves the church. It’s as though Jesus is saying, 'See how that husband loves his wife? That’s how I love the church!' In the final chapter of Revelation, the church is pictured as the bride. Your marriage should be a testimony and example to nonbelievers watching. Nonbelievers should see it as an example of God’s love for them. When as Christians we break up our marriages for no biblical reason, divorce, marry another, and commit adultery, do we not undermine marriage? Resolve your conflicts, forgive one another, and move forward! Don’t tell me about your 'irreconcilable differences.'" ~ Greg Laurie

"If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under." ~ Ronald Reagan

“The choice before us is plain: Christ or chaos, conviction or compromise, discipline or disintegration...The time is come- it is now- when we ought to hear about the duties and responsibilities of our citizenship. America's future depends upon her accepting and demonstrating God's government.” ~ Peter Marshall 

Hey, don't stubbornly be a superior elitist know-it-all independent of the Lord. That won't help you or anyone. There's better choices for you. Dumb laws that go against the Scriptures have been made many times before by dumb men, but Christians must be wiser and obey God rather than men. Here are some more verses to study. Go check the Greek and Hebrew if you like, go check these verses in their own context--see what the rest of the Bible says on this stuff too.

Leviticus 18:22 - Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 nkjv - Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.


Romans 13:8-10 - Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. 


John 8:7-11 - So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 


James 4:12 - There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?


Galatians 5:14 - For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


Isaiah 56:3-5 - Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, the LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, behold, I am a dry tree. 


Romans 1:24-27 - Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves...


Matthew 22:39 - And the second is like unto it, thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.


Mark 10:6-9 - But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.


Leviticus 20:13 - If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.


1 Timothy 1:8-11 - But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully...


Romans 1:26-27 - For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature...

If you worship and in love evangelize for Christ.. yes, if you do something really good, guess what.. you’ll soon have opposition.

What will they do at first when you start to act challenging the corruption n status quo? I’ll tell you.. they’ll try to slow, impede, and distract you. They’ll doubt your motives n ask you why you’re doing it? Later, they’ll still wonder about your motives n ask you how you did it! 

If you get the chance just prayerfully tell the corrupt person about Christ and His Gospel. Give them a chance to get right with God right there on the spot. Why? Well, they need to repent and believe God. They need more than anything.. to stop what they are doing wrong and be regenerated cuz this gets to the heart of the issue.

The heart of the human problem is the problem of the human heart.

Ignore the lies of the twisted and tainted. “They promise them freedom, but they themselves are slaves of corruption. For whatever overcomes a person, to that he (or she) is enslaved.” 2 Peter 2:19

Leadership, and who is it over you during these last of the last days (you know you are living during your last days huh), is so important. Way too much evil is happening all around us today. Too many innocent people are being beheaded. 

The best way to combat error and wrong around us individually or corporately.. is to overcome it by living and telling the truth. By doing what's right in the power of the Holy Spirit. And the way for a group to change all the corruption in very high (DC), in very low, or in very middle level places around them is to live 100 percent for Christ, to live and spread His good Message. Yes, to get right with God first--you've heard it before "gettin' that log out of the eye, before out of their eye." Hey, my nation (the USA) really needs a spiritual awakening today.. a Christian rather than a mere religious one, a biblical revival instead of a so called TV revival. We need to unify with a decent leader who is uncorrupted inside their mind and heart, one who appropriately and constantly challenges the status quo--what's wrong here.

It's a sad day for the church in America today. You and I are not surprised, but today the U.S. Surpemes approved same-sex marriage in all 50 States...

..which means it will now be open-season for lawsuits against Christian-owned companies and local churches across the Land. Any gay couple (that we of course all need to continue to show love towards..) can now march into any church anywhere here, and demand to have their wedding there, and then there will be huge legal pressure put on the pastors to compromise what God has clearly told them.. told us all. It's so wrong. Guess what, it's become a day for Civil Disobedience when the Judges, the political leaders, the State commands Christians to disobey the clear teachings of the Bible. 

Oh, Christians will of course go on worshiping their Lord whole-heartedly, learning from the Bible to wisely apply it, and even as an outgrowth of Christ's strength and joy in them.. be boldly spreading their faith. We should and need to honor the Lord. He never quit, but I also know that many local Christian churches already live on the razor's edge financially (they are never to give an over emphasis to people giving support) so it would obviously appear to me that countless local churches soon won't be there happening as they did before. Will it get more like the Church in China here?

How often do you look for or run into poor people who are open to God changin' both them and the circumstances around em?

Just had a guy ask me about poverty.  Perhaps he is livin’ uber-poor.  Man, hope not, but not sure.
Will ask. He wasn't homeless, did have his home to sleep in. I had a few minutes to respond. I have wondered why some people seem to lack, seem to be living so poor. I hate to see others suffer with any kind of need. You do too I'm sure. 

Perhaps some live in areas of the country where there is still no work for them or for anyone. Maybe, God wants them to move and start looking for employment again. I've seen so many people from my home State of California relocate here in Dallas lately, just cuz they found work here. I'm sure their flesh didn't feel like doing that.  

Perhaps with some people.. it’s that they do not really believe God’s Bible promises regarding this area, and they are not obedient to God in relationship with Christ ..or know Him but don't follow quickly when He directs them.

You know there are all kinds of word-faith (so called Christian) preachers and cultists and other motivational teachers out there ..saying that you can use God to gain big bucks.. that you can use, your inner energy, your positive confession, the Bible even ..to get rich. Don’t listen to them. Read the Bible, listen to God, and go to a healthy church with a saved, spiritual, growing pastor who wants to live holy ..instead.

God’s Bible promises are offered to all and we each person could choose to take hold of em by faith, sure, to receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior first and to obey Him to their own benefit. He is indeed our Savior and Provider still. The Good Shepherd who cares for His flock. False teachers fleece the flock, but true ones feed the flock. If we truly believe in God and in His promises, we will lack no good thing. Simple as that. We will have all that we really need to have in order to go do His will in this world. See: Psalm 23:1 for God tells us that if the Lord is truly our Shepherd, and with Him leading us ..we will not lack. Therefore, let’s know Him on His terms, stay in touch with God through Christ, and let Jesus daily lead.
But Kurt, It Seems Like I Have Tried Every Honest Way to Earn Money and Nothing Seems to Workout For Me.  What Am I Doing Wrong?

Who is better equipped to take on the challenges of this world? A sheep with his or her diligent good shepherd? He's not Baaaaad! Or a young lion? Roooar! The sheep with a good shepherd will fair better than a young lion lacking experience. Many young lions have lacked before. They grow weak for a time and suffer hunger in this sin-cursed world. Sad. They and their dads can wait pretty long for mom to go grab lunch. Not well cared for sheep--their needs are met. See Psalm 34:10 which illustrates the advantages of relying of God by faith versus relying on ourselves and what we know. 

People often are quick to look for immediate comfort and for solutions to problems that will satisfy needs, but sometime the solutions they grasp hold of or how they go apply God’s word to fix the issue do not really line up with the Word of God. 

Daily we see people in the world with financial needs who put all of their faith in winning the lottery, in get-rich schemes, and in even cheating others. They don’t have full disclosure when selling something. All of these actions do not line up with the Word of God, will not be blessed, and will not leave those people satisfied.

Perhaps the man who asked me wasn't doin’ anything wrong at all. We all could suffer due to the dumb choices and sins of others. And God can help us. Go see: Proverbs 13:25 which tells us that the righteous shall be satisfied, but the wicked shall want.

What Does the Bible Tell Us About Hard Work And Earning Money?

It tells us to do this in a righteous way. He will lead. The Bible tells us to be wisely diligent in our work. It tells us on the other hand that those who are slack in what they do will become poor.

Some people really can’t work though, yet God can still provide for them. See Proverbs 10:4. God advises us that the diligent will be blessed and the selfishly lazy will become poor.

I don’t think that God wants people living to get rich by using the Bible.. or think that He wants His kids to suffer so long as poor people. He has solutions cuz He is the ultimate Solution. 

Kurt, don’t we glorify God by choosing to suffer and be poor? Nope. I was taught that. Religion falsely teaches that jive, not God, though Christians will suffer and turn to God for comfort in that. Can I be a Spirit-filled Christian and also be prosperous in my business? Sure you can. Many are.. on multiple levels. God delights to bless them as they walk with Him.

“..as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.” 2 Peter 1:3-4 nkjv

God loves us and desires to bless us. If we are in right standing with Him through faith in Jesus, He will also bless us through the good work of our hands. Just as God promised the His people the Jews, yes, his chosen people, he will also provide financial blessings to those who obey and trust in Him.. those who work diligently in their chosen profession that He led them into. See Deuteronomy 30:9 which tells us that God promises that the work of our hands will be blessed.

“Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fueled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder. Help needy Christians; be inventive in hospitality.”  Romans 12:13 msg

It’s kinda hard to feel like telling our friends about the Lord if we haven’t obeyed Him and are living with the consequences from that, but it’s easy to.. even if we aren’t rich with money when we have His peace and joy inside. Do you need to confess and repent of unbelief? Hey, what are you waiting for? God loves you and will quickly forgive you. He is there for you to help you today. facebook.com/shareJesus

"The fellow that has no money is poor. The fellow that has nothing but money is poorer still." — Billy Sunday

1 John 3:17-18 says “If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

"Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances...which make philanthropy necessary." — Martin Luther King, Jr.

There are so many more words than these cuz God really cares for people, but when you get time go check these Bible verses out in their context…

Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.  Proverbs 19:17

For there will never cease to be poor in the land. Therefore I command you, ‘You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.’  Deuteronomy 15:11

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  Matthew 5:3

Sell your possessions, and give to the needy.  Luke 12:33

Whoever oppresses a poor man insults his Maker, but he who is generous to the needy honors him.  Proverbs 14:31

No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.  Matthew 6:24Also see

Fight right, not uptight. Shine bright.

You be like ..in a full-on spiritual battle. Yup, it started on the day of your inner-regeneration, Christian. Mr. Lu-Cifer doesn't really like ya much. Hates and wants to kill you--don't let him.

Your contending, your fight.. it began on the day of your turning and trusting in Jesus.. on your so called conversion day.. and it will rage on until the time that you are outta here, split, bolt, exit stage left..I mean upwards.. yes, that awesome moment when we go to Heaven. Might be in the Rapture soon. You're gunna like it gobs! No more trials or temptations there. Yay! How cool will that be. So put up your dukes if ya will, and fight the good fight of faith in the Spirit. Not punching people out. You ain't there in heaven yet and your duty is to help others get there with you. So fight right, not all uptight out in the night, not in the flesh - a horrible plight.

And go tell someone about Jesus who fights for us.

You've got a Father who knows, understands and loves you, but having authority issues inside just won’t help you advance outside.

I live in Texas where I hear people not from here tell me that they now don't hate their former President as much as they used to hate him. 
Okeee.. I say. It’s actually kind of funny to hear em say that and I know that Pres W. Bush made some mistakes, but come on. That was then and this is now. 
I think I know why these people feel this way. Sure, he's not in a position of authority over them anymore and the very left leanin’ mainstream media is also no longer trashing him daily cuz of that.
But you’ve noticed that our nation like other Lands ..has some authority issues. Many people here have heard lies mixed with truth and now they just hate the police today. Why is that? Well, primarily it’s because of an old don’t rule of me kind of nature inside, and because these law enforcement personnel are now in authority. 
I rarely want to use the “R” term because I don’t know people’s inner hearts like God does. But think about it.. everything that flawed authorities do, that is indeed their duty to do even when they show restraint.. is highly exaggerated in the perception of “the rebel.”
Hey, I too was a rebel for years so I can fully relate. Still wrestle with this stuff from time to time too, but now am very grateful for my dad, for the police, for teachers, for bosses etc. And I’m thankful for those years of balanced discipline too. My dad would utilize and display loving, decisive, wise discipline for my siblings and I. Sure he loved and loves us all the same but would keep his promises and have appropriate consequences when we rebelled against his clear rules and authority. We all knew it was for our safety and betterment. 
It’s Father’s Day today and I'm feeling way thankful for my dad that has always had the wisdom to be a hard worker. He was a good provider, and faithful in our family. I thank my heavenly Father for Him. 

“My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline and do not resent his rebuke, because the Lord disciplines those He loves, as a father the son He delights in.” Proverbs 3:11-12

My dad would always start his day off with God alone in prayer and in the Bible. Thanks dad. 
My dad still loves my mom and has shown this for over half a century together. He has no entitlement attitude, and just wouldn’t compromise spiritually.. to go do wrong for anyone. He is not religious, he is humble and he is real. A man’s man--never flaky, fickle, wimpy, or chick-ified. Never a poser. 
My dad has had and today still has very keen insight in regards to the nature of man, family, and even world or national affairs. He was disliked by some for drinking sins from half a century ago, but I don’t know too many that didn’t have those. Today he is clean, a strong intelligent leader--God makes him strong and uses him to win souls into the Kingdom. 
Yes, my dad is sober and clear minded in more ways than one. Wanna brag on God and then on my dad some too. God is the best Rock, but my dad has been like a rock of sorts, and does not move left or off track due to the pressure from people. There was always someone trying to move him off-base towards what's wrong, but he wouldn’t give in. He has been generous and very hospitable for many decades. He has good advice. He loves following Christ and that has been the key thing with him for so many years too. God has made him calm, gentle, content, and steady in His strong grace. Happy Father’s Day dad! We love you. 
Come to God on His terms. Listen, if you have a dad or have not known your dad, please allow God your Father who does know you ..teach you how to love and pray for all those in authority over you.. instead of being out to oppose or harm them. (Blog)

Needed, apparently more than before: balanced godly fathers.


http://kurtwvs.tumblr.com/post/121936615213/happy-fathers-day-cool-father


Dads, do you have some small kids, some teens, or some students at home?
Parents, I challenge you to get off their back and appropriately get on their team.. but not with them as the leader of the team. Remember you’re the parent with great responsibility.. entrusted with delegated authority from God and they are the so called kid, child, offspring ..not yet having such. 
We can't make em desire to do what's best and right, and can't always know what's best for them and others in every situation, but we can learn what's absolutely right and point em in that direction ..and sometimes in the direction that's best as well.
"A prudent person sees trouble coming and ducks; a simpleton walks in blindly and is clobbered.”
The payoff for meekness and fear-of-God is plenty and honor and a satisfying life.
The perverse travel a dangerous road, potholed and mud-slick; if you know what’s good for you, stay clear of it.
Point your kids in the right direction—when they’re old they won’t be lost." Proverbs 22:3

Be real, think real, live real.  Small eyes are watching you. Remember, it’s called “raising kids”.. not submerging em, torpedoing em, or putting em down. You know that. 

“Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.” ~ Paul 

Of course be kind, gentle, godly, decisive, friendly, uplifting, faith-FULL, lovingly firm at times and a good example for em. Depend on the Lord to help you. Prayerfully teach them through the whole Bible while you can. Ten to fifteen minutes per day ain’t gunna kill you or them. So many kids today don’t have their fathers around to teach them what’s right and wrong--they don’t even know who are in authority over them or what that even means for their future. Kids, guess what.. most of those who are parents, teachers, police are decent people and not evil abusers so submit to their authority short of sinning. Comply with the police giving you a legal directive ..and live.  
“Children, be obedient to your parents in all things, for this is well-pleasing to the Lord. Fathers, do not exasperate your children, so that they will not lose heart.”  Colossians 3:21 
“Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice ” Ephesians 4:29   
Heads up father’s, here are ten more verses to encourage you... 
  1. Genesis 18:19 – “For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him.”
  2. Exodus 20:12 – “Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the LORD your God is giving you.”
  3. Deuteronomy 6:6-9 – “These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Write them on the door-frames of your houses and on your gates.”
  4. Joshua 24:15 – “But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
  5. Psalm 103:13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; 
  6. Psalms 127:3-5 – “Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are sons born in one’s youth. Blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their enemies in the gate.”
  7. Proverbs 3:11-12 My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline and do not resent his rebuke,because the LORD disciplines those he loves,as a father the son he delights in.
  8. Proverbs 14:26 – “Whoever fears the LORD has a secure fortress, and for their children it will be a refuge.”
  9. Proverbs 23:24 The father of a righteous man has great joy; he who has a wise son delights in him. 
  10. Malachi 4:6 He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers; or else I will come and strike the land with a curse. (niv) 

Want f a m e or a lasting flame.. minus all that blame? You're not meant for shame or to remain the same. This life - no game. Why live for a comely ripped frame? Friends woke when ya snored. Are you currently adored or just plain bored ... driving that not-so-late-model Ford that you can barely afford? Are you less than perfect yet craving so much more?

I don’t need my name in lights, I’m famous in my Father’s sight. I don’t need to live for fame, it’s such a lame and empty game.. or live for man’s applause. Cuz He knows my name, it fades so quick.. and I’m just not the same.
Tryin’ to fill.. tryin’ to satisfy.. so many trying to quench that strong inner thirst. Too many out there stayin’ hungry, thirsty, unfulfilled.. and they’ll do whatever it takes. So many game or runnin’ for fame, they want it, crave it, so many relocated, dislocate, can’t appropriate.. they move and live on the streets of Hollywood ..workin’ weird jobs, not workin’, doin’ whatever they can.. until they can be discovered.   
 Who among us could, should, can condemn what they do (I’m from there–seen em), and a few ..you’ve heard the stories.. do “make it big.” Was privileged to serve Michael Jackson and several others from the silver screen.. both singers and actors from Tinsel Town. Actually told him about relationship with Christ (in place of dead-religions) and about Christ’s Christian Gospel (from the real Bible). He was then in a cult, was a Jehovah Witness at the time and he was for sure friendly ..but didn’t really wanna listen. Sad. 
I wouldn’t foolishly say I knew where he went.. where he ended up. But I can say Jesus is the only way.  All the bling, the ring, the sing, the money, the hat, the glove, the religion, the exotic costumes, the big homes, the albums, the famous friends, the glam, the accolades, the ranch, the awards, all the applause, the toys, all the boys.. none of it filled that inner void. Are you into gay sin and or pedophilia? Are you into fornication and perversity? Stop it now - it wrecks so many lives. Admit it and quit it- repent. And bail on fame-lust. Hey, I won’t cast the final judgement, no, no, but you weren’t made for that. Jesus said, 
“For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Mat. 16:26). No vain ride with Jesus there to guide. Do ya feel kinda fried? God can forgive, He can pardon, He can make you faithful and pure.. with His word applied.. so satisfied inside.  
Goin’ for fame.. really? Want it so?.. why even go ..for it? Name up in lights.. all bright, don’t need that–don’t need it.. to make it big. You’re not either a famous hero or a worthless zero. You have great value. Don’t get me wrong. Some people are literally called to be actors and singers even in our day. I try to encourage them with the Word. Are you?  
 What we each need to do is what we each were designed to do.. and we can actually find that out. Living for financial gain, for pain (cuttin’ etc), for parties, for fame is lame.. it’s like a worthless game ..that just wouldn’t do it for you.  You’d have to go look some more. Gettin’ what ya want, and then not wantin’ what ya got. Too many “arrive” and find out it’s not what they wanted. What is your master passion–what do you live for?  

“Since you are precious in My sight, since you are honored and I love you, I will give other men in your place and other peoples in exchange for your life. Do not fear, for I am with you…” ~ Isaiah 43:4

I don’t need my name in lights. I’m famous in my Father’s eyes. Make no mistake.. He knows my name. I’m not living for applause, I’m already so adored. It’s all His stage, He knows my name oh, oh. He knows my name oh, oh.” ~Francesca Battistelli​

For what shall it profit a person, if they shall gain followers - the whole world, and lose their own soul? Don’t need followers or fame ..in Twitter, Instagram, Periscope or wherever.. only want em following Christ. Close. So what does God say to you? Glad you asked. Says.. Come unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest. He says…
“Don’t be afraid, I’ve redeemed you.
   I’ve called your name. You’re mine.
When you’re in over your head, I’ll be there with you.
   When you’re in rough waters, you will not go down.
When you’re between a rock and a hard place,
   it won’t be a dead end—
Because I am God, your personal God,
   The Holy of Israel, your Savior..   
  That’s how much you mean to me!
   That’s how much I love you!
I’d sell off the whole world to get you back,
   trade the creation just for you.”
