Part 3

I Jn. 5:6-8, “This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood.  And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth.  For there are three that bear witness, the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.”

Jonathan David Keener There have been times when the Lord has interrupted my day with strong utterances from the Father thru the Spirit. These are words that flow from my heart and personal, and sometimes the Lord will have a word sent to me by another. They are timely words from the Body of Christ and encourage my heart.
