The Rea Sea is awakening.
Winds are blowing, waves are swaying. Stand strong, feet firmly planted on God's word alone. The Lord our God will surely saves.
The Lord's Prayer
Matthew 6:13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliever us from the evil one. Part B is not in all bibles:
13b For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever and ever, Amen.
Many modern bibles have omitted this last phrase. The King Jame's version has it. Why did they omit it? It's a powerful ending? Well because it was never in the original text of Matthew or Luke. The newer more modern bibles are actually based on earlier and more reliable manuscripts. The early scribes, as they translated by hand added or omitted phrases and concepts. That being said the latter part of 13 is recited regularly.
I have heard many people say God won't give you more then you can handle. This is not what is written, it says he will not TEMPT us beyond what we can take and will always give us a way out of the evil presented before us. We ask that He deliver us from all evil and make our path straight.
The ending is up in the air as to its validity but it's a powerful reminder for us to NOT get so caught up in this world and it's governments. Ohhhh!! This is so good for right now!! This world will fall away and another kingdom that will last forever and ever will begin. God's kingdom is everlasting. We need to stop focusing on the fleeting and set our eyes on the eternal. God will reign forever and we want to be with Him. Let us set our spiritual eyes on God's kingdom and be about His work. Let God deal with the corrupt world and we, His people stay close to Him so we may live forever and ever, Amen.
