Hello everyone. Never forget that God loves you and He wants you in Heaven with Him. Amen… I never thought I would see the day when so much violence is going on in the world.

God, there is so much violence in this day and time. People have turned their backs on you and doing their own thing. They act like they don’t have to answer to you! In these days people are living the way they want to live and they have no remorse of the wrongs they are doing.

Some people never read their Bibles to learn to live the way you say we should live. In this day and time violence has taken over our streets like it never has before. I never thought I would see the day that our young black men would be a target for slaughter out in the streets. God, I know all this will come to pass one day when you send your Son Jesus back.

I know when He comes back everything will be ok for those who believe and trust in you. I know when Jesus comes back all violence will stop. Because when He does come back, He is going to set up His Kingdom down here on earth. Brothers and sisters, what a day that is going to be! No more racism, no more violence, above all no more sin! I can’t wait for that day to come. Isiah 25:8 reads: "He will swallow up death forever!

The Sovereign Lord will wipe away all tears. He will remove forever all insults and mockery against His land and people. The Lord has spoken!

1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 reads: "And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with Him the believers who have died. We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet Him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves. Then together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So encourage each other with these words."

Man, what a day that is going to be when we will be reunited with our saved loved ones who have gone on before us! The first person I want to see is Jesus, then my son Marcus Jr. Jesus, I love you so much.

You are the risen Savior! Brothers and sisters, if Jesus got up out of the grave that means we who trust, believe, and have faith in Him will also get up out of the grave. Let me break it down to you, you HAVE TO BE SAVED AND ONLY JESUS CAN SAVE YOU! All you have to do is believe that Jesus is the Son of the Living God and believe that He got up out of the grave in three days and is in Heaven interceding for us. Believe He died on the cross for your sins. Then thank Him and you will be saved! Jesus has done all He is going to do to supply everything we need.

So I ask you to read your Bible and all the promises He has for us because if God promises something, you can believe Him and have faith in Him because it is going to come to pass! In closing, let’s love one another. Stop all the hate, bickering, and gossiping. Let’s learn to get along with each other while there is still time because one day Jesus WILL come back. I pray that you don’t get caught up in the "hate game."

May God bless and keep you. Amen…
