TEACHING: PART OF BABA & AMAI’S MESSAGE

Fear of God – we need to fear God. We have our father Ezekiel as the Job of today – he feared God. He showed us an example of a person who fears God. Everyone spoke about it even in world. He was blameless, upright before God and he feared God. He ran away from evil. You should also run away from evil.
Job 1:1 “There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and shunned evil”….God bless you.

We love you and are praying for you,
Apostle Drs Steve & La-Verne Simukai
