This is my 329th and final post to "A Slave of Jesus Christ". I have been writing this blog for six years now. Few if anyone reads what I write; this blog has never been popular among men nor did I expect it to be so, but I wrote it anyway. I wrote it, because I believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God. I wrote it, because Jesus promised eternal life to everyone who believes in Him. I wrote it, because I believe that “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” I wrote it, because in order for someone to call on Him they must first believe in Him. I wrote it, because in order for someone to believe in Him they must first hear about Him. I wrote it, because in order for someone to hear about Him someone else must first tell them about Him. With that being said, I have a book that I would like to recommend on my departure. Of all the books written among men "The Gospel According to John" is my favorite and I encourage everyone to read it often.

Ezra the scribe brought out the book of the law of Moses, stood on a platform, and read it before all the people. While he read the people listened, and the Levites explained the law to the people while the people remained in their place. This caused the people to lament, but Ezra made it a holy day, and turned it into a day for feasting. This was followed up by the priests, Levites, and E…

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.[1] “God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.[2] “Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. The Lord God commanded the man, saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely; but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.[3] “When the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was desirable to make one wise, she took from its fruit and ate; and she gave also to her husband with her, and he ate. Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves loin coverings”.[4] Ever-since the first man (Adam) and the first woman (Eve) ate from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil all have sinned a…
