THE SECOND PENTECOST 2

New Second Pentecost

Second Pentecost 

God is counting the days, the days where He will pour on you like dew reviving you again into a New and Bountiful Garden; this will be known as the New or Second Pentecost; come and kneel all of you and pray to the Lord for the Glorious Event; pray for this Coming.”               August 9, 1988

Vassula Reydon, who is on the podium, received a host of messages from God, which she compiled in her notebooks, called True Life in God. The following excerpts come from her conversations with Jesus:

“Today, I invite you all to pray with fervor for the renewal of the Church, for the second Coming of the Lord: for the second Pentecost                                                                                                                                                 April 22, 1990

New Second Pentecost

“I have little time left now; these Times of Mercy and Grace are almost over; I am not concealing My Plans, nor am I hiding My Face, I am revealing as never before My Face; and you, My beloved ones, your duty is to go and spread these Messages of the Second Pentecost, and what the Spirit teaches.”                                                                             August 6, 1991

“I will send you My Holy Spirit in full force on all mankind, and as a fore sign I will display portents in heaven as never before; there will be a second Pentecost so that My Kingdom on earth will be restored; many of you ask: “when? when will all these things take place?” it is not for anyone to know times or dates that the Father has decided by His own authority.”                                                                                  December 10,1995

AMAZING GLORY of the HOLY SPIRIT 2

 

A VISION OF HEAVEN, HELL AND PURGATORY

ASTONISHING PREDICTIONS

God divinely inspired the BIBLE . How do we know? Each of eight accurate predictions  show a high probability mathematically. The probability of one individual fulfilling eight prophecies have odds of 1 in 10 17  (1 in 100,000,000,000,000,000). Jesus Christ fulfilled all prophecies, therefore the Bible MUST BE TRUE. 

DIVINE OR HUMAN CALIPHS

The Old Testament indicates another 40 astonishing predictions.

CHINA DECEASED RELATIVES

Christianity experiences stunning growth—from approximately 3.8 million adherents in 1956 to an estimated 87 to 100 million Christians today in China.

CHINA AND THE HOLY SPIRIT

In the end, one Christian conversion will benefit the whole family.  The gifts of the Holy Spirit of healing and deliverance will help the whole family. A prayer of deliverance of evil spirits will leave any member of the Chinese family with a complete sense of peace immediately. A prayer of healing from a Christian disciple produces 80% healing. The remaining healing comes from continued prayer of praise and thanksgiving until all the healing is complete. This healing comes from the Holy Spirit through the power in the Name of Jesus Christ.  No other god or deity or doctor uses this power. This proves the TRUTH OF CHRISTIANITY. 

Christianity and Hinduism Differences

BILLIONS OF CHRISTIANS CAN’ T ALL BE WRONG!

Christianity is not a philosophy, but it is  a relationship with God, your Creator,  in Christ TODAY. It is not knowledge of abstract principles.  How do we know this? Healing takes place TODAY in the Name of Jesus Christ.

AN EXPERIMENT OF GOD’S TOUCH 2

HOW IS JESUS STILL ALIVE TODAY?

Jesus is alive today! He heals today (through His followers) and in many cases it is realized immediately. How else can you explain the explosion of Christianity, the world’s largest religion, on earth: 2.2 billion adherents, nearly a third (31 percent) of all 6.9 billion people on Earth. 

Christians know and feel His Presence; they communicate with Him personally; Christian prayers are always answered.

This author has been given the Gift of Healing only because he is a Christian Lay Missionary, who travels  two to three places every year. On his last trip to Columbia he successfully transferred his Gift to his Spanish translators, who were able to heal as he did. He has healed Muslims to their great surprise.

He also delivers away evil spirits along with their healing. All those who are delivered from evil spirits feel a complete physical  sense of peace.

DREAMS AND VISIONS

God can give a message to those non-Christians to change their heart.  God knows faith will be developed eventually. God will come to you in the form of dreams or visions. So be sensitive to any dreams or visions, when you ask God for it earnestly.

Ah, beloved children, I am preparing you a New Heaven and a New Earth to live in, an Earth replenished by fruits that come from the Tree of Life; Its fruits will bear the names of Peace, Holiness, and Love…”                                                                                                                           August 16, 1988

“I enjoy sharing My plans with you; this Work is not yours but Mine; I just need your will and your consent to complete My Work; are you still willing to remain the instrument of My desires?”             June 17, 1994

“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.”

The time for your purification is drawing near; what I will do is out of love, your purification will be to save you from the gates of hell; I will descend upon you like Lightning and renew you with My Fire; My Spirit of Love will redeem you by drawing you into Love and consume you into a living flame of love; I will let My Spirit pour out of heaven and purify your blemished souls into holy spotless souls, purifying you as gold is purified in fire; you will recognise the Time of Salvation and when My Spirit of Love will descend; unless this happens you will not see the New Heavens, nor the New Earth I foretold you;

My child, by My Fire, by My Love, by My Mercy and by My Justice, My seeds (us) will sprout and open like new lilies which face the sun, seeking My Light and My Dew; and I will pour from My Heavens My Light, embellishing you, and My Dew, nourishing you, to see a new era of Love;

By My Power, I will sweep away all iniquity, perversion and evil; I will descend upon you like a violent torrent of cleansing waters and wash away all your evil and leave you standing upright as columns of pure gold.”                                                                                                      August 17, 1988

THE SECOND COMING 2

       Thunder of Justice Second ComingTHE SECOND COMING

We have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful Savior, but as a just Judge“.

“Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with Me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.”       Revelation 22:12

The second coming is soon. In fact, Jesus promised His disciples that He would come again.   “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”                                                                                                                   John 14:1-3

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.”                                                                                                                                          1 Thessalonians 4:16-17

“Then the King will say to those on His right hand, ‘Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.”                                                            Matthew 25:34

Existence of the general judgment

  1. Few truths are more often or more clearly proclaimed in Scripture than that of the general judgment. To it the prophets of the Old Testament refer when they speak of the “Day of the Lord” (Joel 3:4; Ezekiel 13:5; Isaiah 2:12), in which the nations will be summoned to judgment. The Savior Himself not only foretells the event but graphically portrays its circumstances.                                                                                                                                      Matthew 24:27; 25:31
  2. “He shall come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead” Nicene Creed. Several Fathers of the first four centuries advanced the theory of a thousand years’ terrestrial reign of Christ with the saints to precede the end of the World
  3. Justice demands that, in order to form a proper estimate of the good or bad actions of all, a general judgment should take place. Not only that rewards and punishments should await us in the next life but that they should be awarded by a public and general judgment.

Signs that are to precede the general judgment

The Second Coming, however, is a climax of what God is doing with the world to prepare it for Christ’s millennial kingdom. The Second Coming of Christ is preceded by a number of world-shaking events that must occur before Christ can return.

The Scriptures mention certain events which are to take place before the final judgment. These predictions were meant to keep the end of the world present to the minds of Christians.

Here are seven signs of the last judgment:

General preaching of the Christian religion

Concerning this sign the Savior says: “And this gospel of the kingdom, shall be preached in the whole world, for a testimony to all nations, and then shall the consummation come”.        Matthew 24:14

Conversion of the Jewsconversion Jews

“That blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles should come in. And so all Israel should be saved as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob”.                                  Romans 11:25-26

A Great Apostasygreat apostasy

There first must come a revolt or apostasy. The Fathers and interpreters understand by this revolt a great reduction in the number of the faithful through the abandonment of the Christian religion by many nations. “But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?”.                                          Luke 18:8

The Reign of Antichristreign Antichrist

Paul indicates as another sign of the day of the Lord, the revelation of the son of perdition, “The man of sin” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 “it is the last hour, and as you have heard that Antichrist is coming.” 1 John 2:18. There will arise a powerful adversary of Christ, who will seduce the nations by his wonders, and persecute the Church.

Extraordinary Unnatural Disturbances of Natureunnatural occurrences

The judgment will be preceded by unwonted and terrifying disturbances of the physical universe Matthew 24:29; Luke 21:25-26. The wars, pestilences, famines, and earthquakes are foretold.

A Universal Conflagrationuniversal occurrence

A general conflagration will not annihilate the present creation, but will change its form and appearance (2 Peter 3:10-13; 1 Thessalonians 5:2; Revelation 3:3; 16:15). Natural science shows the possibility of such a catastrophe in the ordinary course of events; yet this origin will be entirely miraculous.

The Trumpet of Resurrectiontrumpets resurrection

A voice or trumpet will awaken the dead to resurrection: “in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye … a trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed.”  1 Corinthians 15:52;   (1 Thessalonians 4:15; John 5:28) “Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory.” Matthew 24:30 There will be an appearance in the sky of the Cross on which the Savior died or else of a wonderful cross of light.

Circumstances accompanying the general judgment

Time

The Disciples asked the Savior, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?” He answered: “It is not for you to know the times or moments, which the Father hath put in His own power” Acts 1:6-7. The uncertainty of the Day of Judgment is continually urged by Christ as an incentive to vigilance. The day of the Lord will come “as a thief” (Matthew 24:42-43), like lightning suddenly appearing (Matthew 24:27), like a snare (Luke 21:34), as the Deluge (Matthew 24:37).

Place of the Judgmentvalley Jehoshaphat

All the texts in which mention is made of the Second Coming imply clearly that the general judgment will take place on the earth. “For behold, in those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem, I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat. Then I will enter into judgment with them” Joel 3:1, 2. According to Jewish tradition, the Valley of Jehoshaphat is that part of the Kidron Valley lying between the Temple Mount and the Mount of Olives. The name Jehoshaphat means “Jehovah is Judge.”

The coming of the Judge

At the Second Coming Christ will appear in the heavens, seated on a cloud and surrounded by the angelic hosts (Matthew 16:27; 24:30; 25:31). The angels will minister to the Judge by bringing all before Him (Matthew 24:31). The elect will aid Christ in a judicial capacity  (1 Corinthians 6:2). The lives of the just will in themselves be a condemnation of the wicked (Matthew 21:41), whose punishment they will publicly approve.

Those to be judged

All men, both good and bad, will appear in the judgment to give an account of their deeds. The sentence pronounced will have a corresponding effect on the angels because they have exercised a certain influence over the fortunes of men.

Object of the judgment

The judgment will embrace all works, good or bad, forgiven as well as unforgiven sins, every idle word (Matthew 12:36), every secret thought: “Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men’s hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God”.                                               1 Corinthians 4:5

Form of the judgmentlast judgment

In the last judgment the conduct and deserts of each individual will be made plain not only to his own conscience but to the knowledge of the assembled world. No words will be spoken in the judgment, but that in one instant, through a Divine illumination, each creature will thoroughly understand his own moral condition and that of every fellow creature.                                                                      Romans 2:15

Results of the general judgment

With the fulfillment of the sentence pronounced in the last judgment, the human race will attain its final destiny: “When the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.                                                                                          1 Peter 5:4 

saved rejoice

“But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, who, by the power that enables Him to bring everything under His control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like His glorious body.”                     Philippians 3:20

Proof of Heaven 2

PROOF OF HEAVEN

The proof of heaven starts with thousands of people around the world who claim to have had near-death experiences (NDEs). Scientists believe that these experiences can be easily explained as mere fantasies triggered by an extremely stressed brain. That belief changed for Dr. Eban Alexander.

Dr. Alexander lay in a hospital bed in a comma because of a rare illness: a disease so lethal that only 1 in 10,000,000 survive. His brain, that relates to thought and motion, had completely shut down. His condition was so bad that doctors were ready to stop all treatment. But then he regained consciousness and opened his eyes—and was healed: it was a medical miracle! Dr. Scott Wade who attended to him at the hospital concluded that having a full recovery from this illness after being in a coma for nearly a week, is truly remarkable.

During this laps of time he learned that “the death of the body and the brain are not the end of consciousness and that human experience continues after the grave. More important, it continues under the gaze of a God, who loves and cares about each one of us and it is about… where all the beings are ultimately going.” He claimed that the this place was real. Real in a way that makes the life we are living here and now completely dreamlike by comparison”.

He saw his experience as a duty or a calling to tell people what he saw beyond the body and beyond this earth. He wrote a best-selling book: The New York Times book Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon’s Journey into the Afterlife. No matter what your personal beliefs might be, these ideas will change your life. You are learning about a new world for you: a vast and incalculably positive journey.

You are learning that there is a God in heaven who controls everything and has a plan for you. He will give you eternal life in heaven if you live a life of humility, piety, dignity and inner poverty. All you have to do is follow 10 rules. And you don’t have to change any dates of your religious holidays! Wouldn’t Thomas Edison be surprised; he once said the he had “never seen the slightest scientific proof of religious theories of heaven and hell.”

While his body lay in coma,  Dr. Alexander journeyed beyond this world and encountered an angelic being who guided him into the deepest realms of super-physical existence. There he met, and spoke with, the Divine source of the universe itself. Dr. Alexander’s story is not a fantasy. Today he believes that true health can be achieved only when we realize that God and the soul are real and that death is not the end of personal existence but only a transition. 

His heavenly experience was like a fetus floating in a womb. The “mother” of this fetus was God, the Creator, the Source who is responsible for making the universe and all in it. He had God as his companion, who was so close that there seemed to be no distance between them. He felt like he was being born into a larger world, and that the universe itself was like a giant beautiful cosmic womb. He learned that there was more than one universe, but that love was the center of them all.

There were millions of butterflies all around. Someone was next to him, a beautiful girl who rode along together on wings like a butterfly: her message was three-fold: “You are loved and cherished , dearly forever”. “You have nothing to fear”. “There is nothing you can do wrong”. This love that he experienced was unconditional: it became his most important discovery.

He leaned that he was able to instantly and effortlessly understand concepts that would have taken him years to fully grasp on his earthly life. Thoughts entered him directly. Knowledge was stored without memorization, instantly and for good. He learned that the physical side of the universe was a mere speck of dust compared to the invisible and spiritual part.

In the worlds above this one, one could access any time or place in the world:  time simply doesn’t behave as it does here. It’s not “one-thing-after-another” in those worlds. A moment can seem like a lifetime. Continue reading Proof of Heaven 2

WHAT IS AN AUTHENTIC LIFE? 2

authentic lifeWHAT IS AN AUTHENTIC LIFE?

An authentic life starts with a prayer: “I offer you this half hour of my swim for … who is struggling… or any other cause.” So that you “pray continuously” 1 Thessalonians 5:17  So while you are cleaning windows, you simply offer this hour of cleaning for thanksgiving for your family. You offer the actions of your life to God as a prayer. This is the secret on how the busy modern person can find intimacy with God. The interior effect of the work we do becomes more important than the exterior fruits of our work.

“Most men lead lives of quiet desperation.” Henry Thoreau in Walden Pond. We all know how people’s lives have become faster and busier every day. It seems as though many people are living merely to survive. The treatment for depression today is ten times greater than previous times.

We lose the reason why we are here: what is the meaning and purpose of our life? If we become distracted from our purpose long enough, we become miserable. Our modern life has become a distraction from our real Christian goal in life.  We either don’t know what this goal is or we cast it aside. Even worst — this goal seems to  make people uncomfortable so the goal is watered down. Ironically, if you take away the goal of the Christian life, you don’t make it easier to live — you make it harder.

You are much happier when you have a higher standard to look to and strive for. Having a meaningful goal flood your spirit with hope and fills your mind with determination.

In truth, holiness is something that God does in us and not something we achieve. God is still the perfect Gentleman.  He invites us to participate in His life, but He never forces Himself on us. He wants our consent because he desires our loving cooperation.

Those who respond to God’s call to holiness are the most joyful people on earth. They have richer, more abundant experience of life and they love more deeply than most people. They enjoy life — all of life.

How do you know that you are close to holiness? You have an insatiable desire to become all God created you to be: and unwavering commitment to the will of God and an unquenchable concern for unholy people. You are continually answering God’s invitation to grasp the moments of your life — perhaps being sensitive to a divine appointment that God has aligned for you. You tap into the grace of God, which is never lacking. In this way you are giving glory to God.AUTHENTIC LIFE

The Idolatry of Wealth and Reevaluation of Treasure

Our holiness is compatible with every state in life. Even the rich are called to live holy lives by using their wealth in productive ways that foster their own growth and the growth of others.

Idolatry? Who can tell me what that word means?” A nine-year-old’s hand shot into the air. “It’s like what some people do with money—they make it more important than God.” The wisdom of these simple words reverberated through the Sunday school classroom.

Christians are called to reject the idolization of wealth in the modern consumerist society. Instead, they are invited to make productive use of material wealth for the ministries of God.

 So long as individuals maintain a greater attachment to worldly possessions than to God, they will find it harder to enter the kingdom of heaven than a camel to pass through the eye of the needle.

WEALTH IS NOT GREED!

The World Problem 2

World Problem

–Bertrand Russell

THE WORLD PROBLEM

The World Bank estimates that the world problem is that a quarter of the world is chronically under nourished. It is shocking to know that this problem has been with us for centuries. This problem seems too remote for most people. Hunger continues to initiate the most violent wars. People who are out of work and are starving are the stuff of which dictatorships are made. Yet, no one truly desires anyone to suffer or starve.

A Meaningful Existence

Most of us live for tomorrow: it will be better, richer, wiser and more secure. We are all searching for something that will make our existence more meaningful. Even the ancient Egyptians believed that upon death they would have to answer two questions: “Did you bring joy?” and “Did you find joy?” We truly have an obligation to be the best person that we can. Any new learning, which will aid us in obtaining that goal, will benefit  everyone. Each of us has something special to contribute. There is something that each of us can do if we are willing. Finding ways to become involved is a good beginning. We can use the time that we are given to give birth to our potential — our human trademark. We are challenged  to see new possibilities. We are living at a time of abundant new beginnings.  It is actually exciting when people come to grips with their own uniqueness as individuals. We are constantly told that nothing is free and that every investment has to have a return. Yet, over 50% of people volunteer their time at something to improve society.

An Earthly Paradise

The Buddhist tell a story of the frog lodged at the bottom of the well, which cannot  ever understand the limitless expanse of the sky. If we can only step out of our own perceptual traps, we can begin to see the beauty and goodness. An earthly paradise is not some far-off impossible destination. It can be a loving voyage in the here and now. We are responsible for creating our own paradise and the time to start the voyage is NOW.

The Save-the-World Mind Set

We are living through a period of an unprecedented social and technological change.  This rapid advancement in technology and human networks have exponentially opened up new pathways to actualizing one’s passions. People want to broadcast and express themselves and even cultivate a following. There is an increased global awareness and connections to others in remote areas. Many people do not associate helping the poor around the world as a calling from God. They think that Christianity is a laundry list of vague beliefs that have little meaning on how they spend their time. Actually, they lack a deep understanding of their faith and that following Jesus is a way of life..

Many people aspire to science-related careers. Some people assume that science has cornered the world on knowledge: things are only true when they are tested with scientific methods. There is a name for this: scientism. This thinking must not become more important than obedience to God.

Here is what Sir Isaac Newton said about his belief: “ I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by those who were inspired. I study the Bible daily.” He credited his Creator with the existence of the universe. Each moment has a life upon itself with as much potential for joy and happiness as we are willing to bring to it: life is wonderful; joy is our birthright and love is what it is all about.

Love

Having more of anything other than the love for God and neighbor will leave you dissatisfied with relationships and possessions. To love is the greatest of human experience and sooner or later we discover that life without it is empty and meaningless. Love is always worth the effort. Kindness in giving creates love. Each of us bears a torch but we must keep it lit. The hope of tomorrow is that these blazing torches will provide hope for tomorrow. We want to leave the world a better place for our having to be in it.

To Build a Team

Today people don’t want to be only hearers of faith but also doers — to put feet to their faith: action on behalf of others. This is empathy: the ability to understand and take on yourself the burden of others to serve and restore God’s world. God has made all things and He is making all things new for you. So what has God called you to do in partnership with the community of Christ-followers?  How can you be on a mission in the world for Christ, based on what you are gifted to do?

The Prophecy

The Prophecy: “It will all come about when history has been completed. God will then bring together all things in heaven and on earth under one ruler. The ruler is Christ.”                      Ephesians 1:10

The Timing and Seasons of God

“Follow the way of love and eagerly desire gifts of the Spirit, especially prophecy.”                                                                    Corinthians 14:1

The Prophet, Isaiah, prophesied in his day 700 years before Christ: “For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.         Isaiah 9:6

“Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”                                            Matthew 24:34

“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.”                                                                                                 Isaiah 55: 8, 9

“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”                                                                                                                                                      2 Peter 3:8

So what is God saying to us through his Word?

“After two days He will revive us; on the third day He will restore us, that we may live in His presence.” Hosea 6:2 This means that God has a plan and a purpose in His will: a restoration and release of all things spoken of by the apostles and prophets: “for time is at hand” Revelation 22:10 “For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality.”                                                                     Romans 9:28

See, I am doing a new thing!

“Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 A new thing? Wow!  God is about to do things in and through His Church.

If we will hear God’s Word and believe in it, we can be God’s prophetic pioneers who will help God fulfill it. After all we are co-laborers with God. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. All who have this hope in Him purify themselves, just as He is pure.”                                                                                                                                              1 John 3:1-3

So Christ suffered and died for our sins so that He might bring “many sons unto glory.” Hebrews 2:10 That means that God has predestined that there will be those who will think God’s thoughts, manifest His majesty, portray His power and glorify His grace without pain and confusion. This will come about like a butterfly emerging from its cocoon.

 Yet every restoration brings a revolution. New wine cannot be contained in old wineskins: it will burst forth. ”They pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”                  Matthew 9:17

How will this begin?

MIRACLE OF LOVE

Depending on God means depending on love. When we choose to love, or choose to allow our minds to be one with God, then life becomes wonderful.

When we shift to a give-mentality from a get-mentality, we believe that we have so much abundance that we can afford to give it away. Then God gives to us in return. When you give all your gifts in service to the world, you will become inspired with new energy. You are motivated when you know that your love is being used to heal all wounds.

YOUR LOVE AND GRACE

Take, Lord, receive all I am and all I’ll ever have. You have given all to me. I return it. Give me only your love and your grace. That’s enough for me.

As long as we are willing to be used in His service, He will give us miraculous powers. No one has any more potential than anyone else for spreading the love of God. Just relax and let it be. Our power is the Spirit within us. Don’t be frightened by our own light — it is meant to shine. Continue reading MIRACLE OF LOVE 2
