My Refuge and My Fortress (Psalm 91)
91:1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his pinions,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.
You will not fear the terror of the night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness,
nor the destruction that wastes at noonday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only look with your eyes
and see the recompense of the wicked.
Because you have made the Lord your dwelling place—
the Most High, who is my refuge—
10 no evil shall be allowed to befall you,
no plague come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
12 On their hands they will bear you up,
lest you strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the adder;
the young lion and the serpent you will trample underfoot.
14 “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him;
I will protect him, because he knows my name.
15 When he calls to me, I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”
Jesus Came to Save the World (John chapter 12)
44 And Jesus cried out and said, “Whoever believes in me, believes not in me but in him who sent me. 45 Andwhoever sees me sees him who sent me. 46 I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness. 47 If anyone hears my words and does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world but to save the world. 48 The one who rejects me and does not receive my words has a judge; the word that I have spoken will judge him on the last day. 49 For I have not spoken on my own authority, but the Father who sent me has himself given me a commandment—what to say and what to speak. 50 And I know that his commandment is eternal life. What I say, therefore, I say as the Father has told me.”
The Great Commission (Matthew chapter 28)
16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. 17 And when they saw him they worshiped him, but some doubted. 18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Christ's Example of Humility (Phillipians 2)
2 So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.






The Scroll and the Lamb (Revelation chapter 5)
5 Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and break its seals?” And no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll or to look into it, and I began to weep loudly because no one was found worthy to open the scroll or to look into it. And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.”
And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. And he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying,
Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10 and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”
11 Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, 12 saying with a loud voice,
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying,
To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
14 And the four living creatures said, “Amen!” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

GREAT QUOTES on JOY

"Joy has nothing to do with material things, or with a man's outward
circumstance ... a man living in the lap of luxury can be wretched,
and a man in the depths of poverty can overflow with joy."
- William Barclay

"The world looks for happiness through self-assertion. The Christian
knows that joy is found in self-abandonment. 'If a man will let himself
be lost for My sake,' Jesus said, 'he will find his true self.'"
- Elisabeth Elliot

"Most of those who fail to experience the joy of the Lord have
refused to take up a cross!"
- Walter J. Chantry

"There is a joy which is not given to the ungodly, but to those who
love Thee for Thine own sake, whose joy Thou Thyself art. And this
is the happy life, to rejoice to Thee, of Thee, for Thee."
- Augustine

"A soul may be in as thriving a state when thirsting, seeking and
mourning after the Lord as when actually rejoicing in Him; as
much in earnest when fighting in the valley as when singing upon
the mount."
- John Newton

"After grief for sin there should be joy for forgiveness."
- A. W. Pink

The Authority Of The Believer, The Biblical Way To Cast Out A Demon, In Jesus Name

Mat 28:18  And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth.

Barnes:

All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth - The “Son of God,” as “Creator,” had an original right to all things, to control them and dispose of them. See Joh_1:3; Col_1:16-17; Heb_1:8. But the universe is put under him more particularly as Mediator, that he might redeem his people; that he might gather a church; that he might defend his chosen; that he might subdue all their enemies, and bring them off conquerors and more than conquerors, Eph_1:20-23; 1Co_15:25-27; Joh_5:22-23; Phi_2:6-11. It is in reference to this, doubtless, that he speaks here power or authority committed to him over all things, that he might redeem, defend, and save the church purchased with his own blood. His mediatorial government extends, therefore, over the material world, over angels, over devils, over wicked men, and over his own people.

Eph 1:20  which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly places,

Eph 1:21  far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come:

Eph 1:22  and he put all things in subjection under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the church,

Eph 1:23  which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all.

Col 1:16  for in him were all things created, in the heavens and upon the earth, things visible and things invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; all things have been created through him, and unto him;

Php 2:9  Wherefore also God highly exalted him, and gave unto him the name which is above every name;

Php 2:10  that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven and things on earth and things under the earth,

Php 2:11  and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

The Deity of Christ is an essential doctrine, anyone who denies this is of their father the devil as 1 Jn. teaches and other portions. Jesus was fully man and fully God. Jesus has been given all authority and power to rule and reign as Barnes said, over the material world, (what we see) angles and demons ( the unseen world) and over wicked men)


For this, we can take great comfort because it teaches us; nothing can happen to us that our lord does give the Ok.

At the mane of Jesus every knee shall bow, every tongue confess, that He alone is indeed Lord of lords and king of kings. The true believer already knows this, and has made Jesus Lord of their life. We know the secrets of the inner kingdom, in Jesus name we cast out devils, lay hands on the sick, pray in our heavenly language. In Jesus name, we have been given authority. This doctrine called the authority of the believers has long been taught, and it is true, but many abuses and doctrines of men have been added to it, some say, we are supermen and women; many teach and practice Sayings like these.

1. I rebuke you Satan in the name of Jesus
2. I bind you devil, get out you fowl dog
3.You no good devil flee you evil devil
4. I take authority over you , I take dominion over you Satan in the name of Jesus.

If your are full gospel, you have done this, are doing it, or have. We learn the proper biblical way to use the authority of the name of Jesus, and it sounds nothing like what we have learned. In Jude; we read specifics on how to deal with the devil, it is very pointed and speaks against those who rebuke the devil in the four ways I mentioned. I admit, when I learned this years ago, it changed my life, as I , like many readers, have been taught to say the same things and rail on the devil.

 It is no where to be found in the bible, nowhere, it is Christ, Jesus name that the lord rebukes, never our name, when we say I rebuke you this is unscriptural, and those in deliverance ministries talk more about the devil than Jesus, they invoke evil spirits, and I have been to such meetings, they are dark, evil, unscriptural and outright evil. It is Jesus name, not ours, and we are never to act like we are anybody, other than humble servants of our lord. We are never to take our enemy for granite, he is mighty foe.

Let’s read what Jude teaches on the subject, no bible helps needed on this portion as it is very plain.

Jud 1:6  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

Jud 1:7  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Jud 1:8  Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.



Jud 1:9  Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

Jud 1:10  But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

Jud 1:11  Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Jud 1:12  These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots;

Jud 1:13  Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.

Jud 1:14  And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints,

Jud 1:15  To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.

Jud 1:16  These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

Jud 1:17  But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Jud 1:18  How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.

Jud 1:19  These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.

This clearly teaches the danger of, not properly rebuking the devil, it is not a thing to take lightly, as verse 10 says.

Jud 1:10  But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.

It corrupts us, those who practice as I mentioned are clouds without water, carried about of winds, meaning powerless and into every new wind of doctrine, they are spots, blemishes in your love feasts, Church , and ministry. They are called mockers, yes mockers, whom are they mocking? The devil, men, churches and Christ authority, making themselves and authority this is 100% unscriptural. read this portion of the word over and over, let the spirit give you illumination, pray about it and you will see what I am writing is true, what is practiced is dangerous, foolish and demon hunting is against the word, the neo-charismatics are real big on this doctrine.

The proper wording is simple, the lord rebuke you, that’s it, we do not need to, or should we converse with evil spirits, invoke them, try and find out territorial demons to pray against and try to take down , its like ghost busters, some even call them selves demon busters, all I can say is this is something all must be learned in, understand and you must know, Jesus is the all authority, he is the king , we are nothing, simple, humble servants. It is another lesson on how so many things we have been taught and have practice is nowhere to be backed up in the bible.

man-made=Confusion

November 14

/I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of
knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I
consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ. (Philippians 3:8 )

Man has constructed his own interpretations of Christianity and of
truth, brought in his own systems and has confused things so much that
you really do not know, unless you have clear discernment such as
Nehemiah had, what is of God and what is not of God.

There are multitudes of good, honest, sincere Christian people who really are in
the most awful fog as to what is of God and what is not of God
religiously. Man's religious systems have brought about that confusion.

Multitudes of honest people believe with all their heart that the
thing that they are in is of God, and it is just possible for them to
get such an awakening to see the whole thing was man-made and not of
God at all; "...much rubbish." Paul was one of those. Reflect upon his
past life, privileges, and inheritances which he at one time believed
were so utterly and absolutely of God for him, and that he really was
in God's will.

He came to a time when he said: "The things which were
gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ... for whom I suffered the
loss of all things, and do count them but refuse, that I may gain
Christ"; and yet he was so devoted to all that as a traditional
religious system in which he at one time was living as out from God,
which had now become merely an outward thing of forms and external
laws. He believed, nevertheless, that it was all of God until the
light shone, until he saw that in comparison with the fullness of
Christ it was refuse. It is a strong word that he uses; the word he
uses is "stuff to be flung to the dogs." Saul of Tarsus throwing his
Judaism to the dogs! He did it when he saw Christ. You can never come
out of the rubbish until you see Christ.

Ask the Lord to reveal to you the fullness of Christ and you will find
things which have gripped and held you become as mere refuse, stuff to
be flung to the dogs.

There was much rubbish in the place which once
represented a clear line of division between what was of God and what
was not of God; confusion, mixture. I shall not attempt to apply that
more thoroughly.

The Lord will have to show us by revelation what the
rubbish is, but there is the simple statement and it contains a truth,
and you and I will really have to ask the Lord to show us even in
religious matters, where man ends and God begins, or where God ends
and man begins, so that we shall be delivered from everything that man
has imposed or added upon what is of God, and we shall be able to get
right down to foundations, the rubbish being removed: and there is a
very great deal of ecclesiastical rubbish about in these days that
must go. That is a real difficulty in recovering the full testimony of
the Lord Jesus.

No War With North Korea Pt 2 -I keep Getting This Word-And Feed My Sheep Series

And there shall be wars and rumors of war...

In Pt- 1 I wrote, '99.9% of all media alternative media included is saying war with NK is anytime'.

This is still at 99.9% , so this word is going against what almost everyone else is saying.
I know it looks like this war will happen , we have over 80,000 troops in the area, three of our largest aircraft carries, subs, B-52's and stealth bombers and who knows what else.

Mark my words we will see war soon, but not with NK. I feel deeply the lord is saying this, I am getting it over and over.

The number one possible area will be IRAN, second Venezuela.

China will step in and make a deal with NK, what I do not know, a regime change is what the USA wants, it could happen , but I doubt this will be the deal, but Chi9na will intervene and put a stop to the current NK antics.

The global economy has much to do with this. China needs the USA and so does other countries.

Its always about the money. TPTB will have a war and will have a new ISIS, not the same as they have been defeated by Russia and the Syrian army.

Another terrorist group will be the new enemy, or an old terrorist group revised and re used, have to have a boggy man terrorist group , this is always the case with the military industrial complex.

More war in the middle East this will escalate and continue, this I know.
The home grown terrorist is the spin to bring in massive Government control and massive new Gun Laws. In CA ST , they are passing yet another gun law, ammunition , you will very soon be only allowed to buy X amount of ammo rounds.

I do not have a fire arm, so this does not affect me, but it will many that have Guns.
WE are seeing regular people out doors, at the store and other places that seem to be losing it.

Today at the new super wal mart in Barstow a person got so mad over the small parking lot, as the larger and needed one is not ready, the man pulled out a knife on a women and in cam the Barstow P.D.
Large crowd came to the area and all were acting out. Now that I have a car, I am seeing this everywhere the highway included. Americans and others are literally losing it, many are in fear.

Program television movies, mass shootings and net work and alternative news giving the needed fear porn to the extreme.

Me and my wife witnessed and talked to a lot of people, I do this for Jesus and to talk and feel people out , what are they thinking, feeling, and its all FEAR.

We are in perilous times as Paul wrote. If you go out side in public anyone is a target.
Again this is a fear thing I have never seen before.

Jesus has a word to his bride, Hard times are on you, they are getting harder by the day, but I am still on the throne, I am still in charge, I am still all powerful, and so beloved we have no reason to have any fear. The fear of God yes, but not man who can kill the body and not touch the soul.

The lord says 'Peace, peace, have my peace and joy in you, and do not allow this world to change that. It is up to us to fix our eyes on Jesus, and shine for our lord. This is the order of the day and the life we strive to live, I am seeking the lord, I know all is about to crumble, but we will not crumble- IF- we stay close to our lord Jesus Christ.

It is time to draw near to the lord, talk to him, ask questions and ask for wisdom in these days we live in. I tell you today if you seek the lord, He will talk to you. Have a talk with the lord today beloved, He is just waiting for you to come.

Jer 33:3 -Amen

Feed My Sheep Series-Casting Your Burden On The Lord, Our True Hope

I was going to post this message just now, I saw the same word in 2012 the same thing I was given tonight so its from 2012 but the message is from today, fresh, new and the word of the lord to the sheep of our lord.

 
Psa 55:22  Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

Barnes;

what, in the great distribution of things in his world, he has assigned to “thee” to be done or to be borne; cast it all on him. Receive the allotment as coming from him; as what “he” has, in his infinite wisdom, assigned to thee as thy portion in this life; as what “he” has judged it to be best that then shouldest do or bear; as “thy” part of toil, or trouble, or sacrifice, in carrying out his great arrangements in the world. All that is to be “borne” or to be “done” in this world he has “divided up” among people, giving or assigning to each one what He thought best suited to his ability, his circumstances, his position in life - what “he” could do or bear best - and what, therefore, would most conduce to the great end in view. That portion thus assigned to “us,” we are directed to “cast upon the Lord;” that is, we are to look to him to enable us to do or to bear it. As it is “his” appointment, we should receive it, and submit to it, without complaining; as it is “his” appointment

We have not to rearrange what has been thus appointed, or to adjust it anew, but to do all, and endure all that he has ordained, leaning on his arm.

And he shall sustain thee - He will make you sufficient for it. The word literally means “to measure;” then to hold or contain, as a vessel or measure; and then, to hold up or sustain “by” a sufficiency of strength or nourishment, as life is sustained. Gen_45:11; Gen_47:12; Gen_50:21; 1Ki_4:7; 1Ki_17:4. Here it means that God would give such a “measure” of strength and grace as would be adapted to the duty or the trial; or such as would be sufficient to bear us up under it. Compare the notes at 2Co_12:9.

He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved - literally, “He will not give moving forever to the righteous.” That is, he will not so appoint, arrange, or permit things to occur, that the righteous shall be “ultimately” and “permanently” removed from their steadfastness and their hope; he will not suffer them to fall away and perish. In all their trials and temptations he will sustain them, and will ultimately bring them off in triumph. The meaning here cannot be that the righteous shall never be “moved” in the sense that their circumstances will not be changed; or that none of their plans will fail; or that they will never be disappointed; or that their minds will never in any sense be discomposed; but that whatever trials may come upon them, they will be “ultimately” safe. Compare Psa_37:24.

2Co 12:7  And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

2Co 12:8  For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me.

2Co 12:9  And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

2Co 12:10  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

Barnes:

Paul was in habits of communion with the Savior, and was accustomed to receive revelations from him. The material fact here is, that the request was not granted in the exact form in which he presented it, but that he received assurance of grace to support him in his trial.

It is one of the instances in which the fervent prayer of a good man, offered undoubtedly in faith, was not answered in the form in which he desired, though substantially answered in the assurance of grace sufficient to support him. It furnishes, therefore, a very instructive lesson in regard to prayer, and shows as that we are not to expect as a matter of course that all our prayers will be literally answered, and that we should not be disappointed or disheartened if they are not.

 It is a matter of fact that not all the prayers even of the pious, and of those who pray having faith in God as a hearer of prayer, are literally answered. Thus, the prayer of David 2Sa_12:16-20 was not literally answered; the child for whose life he so earnestly prayed died. So the Savior's request was not literally answered, Mar_14:36. The cup of suffering which he so earnestly desired should be taken away was not removed. So in the case before us; compare also Deu_3:23-27; Job_30:20; Lam_3:8.

 So in numerous cases now, Christians pray with fervor and with faith for the removal of some calamity which is not removed; or for something which they regard as desirable for their welfare which is withheld. Some of the reasons why this is done are obvious:

(1) The grace that will be imparted if the calamity is not removed will be of greater value to the individual than would be the direct answer to his prayer. Such was the case with Paul; so it was doubtless with David; and so it is often with Christians now The removal of the calamity might be apparently a blessing, but it might also be attended with danger to our spiritual welfare; the grace imparted may be of permanent value and may be connected with the development of some of the loveliest traits of Christian character.

(2) it might not be for the good of the individual who prays that the exact thing should be granted. When a parent prays with great earnestness and with insubmission for the life of a child, he knows not what he is doing. If the child lives, he may be the occasion of much more grief to him than if he had died. David had far more trouble from Absalom than he had from the death of the child for which he so earnestly prayed. At the same time it may be better for the child that he should be removed. If he dies in infancy he will be saved. But who can tell what will be his character and destiny should he live to be a man? So of other things.

(3) God has often some better thing in store for us than would be the immediate answer to our prayer Who can doubt that this was true of Paul? The promised grace of Christ as sufficient to support us is of more value than would be the mere removal of any bodily affliction.

(4) it would not be well for us, probably, should our petition be literally answered. Who can tell what is best for himself? If the thing were obtained, who can tell how soon we might forget the benefactor and become proud and self-confident? It was the design of God to humble Paul; and this could be much better accomplished by continuing his affliction and by imparting the promised grace, than by withdrawing the affliction and withholding the grace. The very thing to be done was to keep him humble; and this affliction could not be withdrawn without also foregoing the benefit. It is true, also, that where things are in themselves proper to be asked, Christians sometimes ask them in an improper manner, and this is one of the reasons why many of their prayers are not answered. But this does not pertain to the case before us.

My grace is sufficient for thee - A much better answer than it would have been to have removed the calamity; and one that seems to have been entirely satisfactory to Paul. The meaning of the Savior is that he would support him; that he would not suffer him to sink exhausted under his trials; that he had nothing to fear. The infliction was not indeed removed; but there was a promise that the favor of Christ would be shown to him constantly, and that he would find his support to be ample. If Paul had this support, he might well bear the trial; and if we have this assurance, as we may have, we may welcome affliction, and rejoice that calamities are brought upon us. It is a sufficient answer to our prayers if we have the solemn promise of the Redeemer that we shall be upheld and never sink under the burden of our heavy woes.

My strength is made perfect in weakness - That is, the strength which I impart to my people is more commonly and more completely manifested when my people feel that they are weak. It is not imparted to those who feel that they are strong and who do not realize their need of divine aid. It is not so completely manifested to those who are vigorous and strong as to the feeble. It is when we are conscious that we are feeble, and when we feel our need of aid, that the Redeemer manifests his power to uphold, and imparts his purest consolations. Grotius has collected several similar passages from the classic writers which may serve to illustrate this expression. Thus, Pliny, vii. Epis. 26, says, “We are best where we are weak.” Seneca says, “Calamity is the occasion of virtue.” Quintilian, “All temerity of mind is broken by bodily calamity.” Minutius Felix, “Calamity is often the discipline of virtue.” There are few Christians who cannot bear witness to the truth of what the Redeemer here says, and who have not experienced the most pure consolations which they have known, and been most sensible of his comforting presence and power in times of affliction.

Most gladly, therefore ... - I count it a privilege to be afflicted, if my trials may be the means of my more abundantly enjoying the favor of the Redeemer. His presence and imparted strength are more than a compensation for all the trials that I endure.
That the power of Christ - The strength which Christ imparts; his power manifested in supporting me in trials.
May rest upon me - ἐπισκηνώσῃ  episkēnōsē. The word properly means to pitch a tent upon; and then to dwell in or upon. Here it is used in the sense of abiding upon, or remaining with. The sense is, that the power which Christ manifested to his people rested with them, or abode with them in their trials, and therefore he would rejoice in afflictions, in order that he might partake of the aid and consolation thus imparted. Hence, learn:

(1) That a Christian never loses anything by suffering and affliction. If he may obtain the favor of Christ by his trials he is a gainer. The favor of the Redeemer is more than a compensation for all that we endure in his cause.

(2) the Christian is a gainer by trial. I never knew a Christian that was not ultimately benefitted by trials. I never knew one who did not find that he had gained much that was valuable to him in scenes of affliction. I do not know that I have found one who would be willing to exchange the advantages he has gained in affliction for all that the most uninterrupted prosperity and the highest honors that the world could give would impart.

(3) learn to bear trials with joy. They are good for us. They develop some of the most lovely traits of character. They injure no one if they are properly received. And a Christian should rejoice that he may obtain what he does obtain in affliction, cost what it may. It is worth more than it costs; and when we come to die, the things that we shall have most occasion to thank God for will be our afflictions. And, O! if they are the means of raising us to a higher seat in heaven, and placing us nearer the Redeemer there who will not rejoice in his trials?
Beloved I repeat that line it is the key;

The Christian is a gainer by trial. I never knew a Christian that was not ultimately benefitted by trials.

Feed My Sheep Series-Passing the Tests

Rylisms

“God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able” (1Co_10:13)

An unusual trial befell me several years ago. It started on the Tuesday before Christmas, which came on Sunday that year. I woke up into what I can only call the absence of the Lord. Now I know He said, “I will never leave you, nor forsake you.” But at that moment I could not find Him anywhere; not in the Scripture, nor in prayer; not in song, nor in confession of faith.

He was gone.

I made it through the day thinking that this was a test of some kind, and that it would pass rather quickly. But the next morning when I woke, the feeling of emptiness had intensified and I was deeply troubled at the thought that this may be for real…and for ever.

By the following morning my fears were strengthened, as the problem grew even worse. Each day seemed to multiply my sense of being totally lost. By Saturday morning I groped about as a man who had never known the Lord at all. There was no discernible trace of His Spirit, His grace, or the power of His Word in my life. I was alarmed, to say the least.

To make matters worse, Sunday was coming. I was frantic in my search for some meaningful sermon to preach on Christmas Day, but could find nothing — a preacher’s worst nightmare. I covered my tracks by having the children take the morning service and sing to the congregation a variety of carols and hymns. As for myself, I left the church before the service ended and raced home to hide in my bedroom!

Monday morning dawned and my greatest fears were realized. The ordeal was relentless, and my sense of emptiness was more intense than ever. I dreaded the thought of what my future held, for I clearly would not be able to continue as a pastor in this condition.

The next morning when I woke, the Lord was present in a manifest way there in my room. I literally gasped like a man coming up out of water after almost drowning. With the exhale of that breath of life I blurted out a tangled prayer that sounded something like, “Lord, Where have You…What was this…and, please, don’t ever do that again!”

The Lord opened my heart to understand what He had been doing. In my mind the phrase came, “The Lord is taking me from the minor leagues to the major leagues.” In other words, He showed me that He was about to increase His anointing in my life and with that would come greater influence and responsibility in ministry. The dark ordeal was a portal of testing that led from one level to the next.

I wrote a little poem to commemorate that moment. May I share it with you?

 T’was the Week Before Christmas
’was the week before Christmas and all through my house Lord was not moving; I felt like a louse!prayers were like cement, my faith was like mud;spirit was sinking; my life was a dud!

So with desperate endeavor I hastened to see what in the world was happening to me!called on the Name of the Lord God Most High!with speed like molasses He finally replied…

“This week is a test I’m passing you through;’m weighing your heart to see what you’ll do.I’ve purposed to use you in ways I think best,I only can do so if you pass this test!”



Great word by this devotional now I will add a few words.


Beloved we have all faced dry times, trying times, this goes with Christianity.


What we can take from this post is the following.

Times when the heavens are brass, we repent, read, pray and nothing, just as dry and miserable. We have all been there, maybe you are in that place today. 

My own 10 years of desert hardship, feeling where are yo God, where is the anointing, where is the power, but it comes and it goes, we are never on a mountain peak for ever, we must come down from the mountain and back into the valley, its the way it works.

WE must also consider, and I have messages on this, when the lord is going to promote you to some kind of higher call, a closer walk with the lord, something different, larger, we must be dealt with first and the blows are in love. 

The lord may be preparing you for some sort of higher call. 

The lord is preparing his people for the big events just around the corner, he is taking you from the minor league to the majors, it does not mean super Christianity, but humble, power that will, and is moving even now, as HE in love, is getting us all ready. 

It is different for each person, we are dealt with in different ways, we have issues in spiritual ,matters, the lord is cleaning and preparing his house, we are that house, the temple of the holy spirit. 
No matter what, the lord will see you through all you face as our loving lord.

From The Dean's Heart


We are still alive, the world did not end, we are not in the great tribulation, no one was taken away by the rapture. I have seen so many winds of doctrines come and go.


The world is being turned upside down, we are in wild days. Jesus said, Jn 9:4  I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. . Beloved it is still day, we should be ministering until we can not, learning until we can not. How much longer? Only the lord knows, this I do know, with all the world events and hardship, it is still day, so let us work, let us learn, let us be in spiritual preparation. The college will keep doing what it does, this will only end when we have no internet, or another event happens, but until that time, we are still going forward,are you?


At present the college is still doing the ministry it has been called to do. I ask all, stay sound in doctrine, do not be carried away by every wind of doctrine that comes to you by Videos, websites and books.


The best defense against strange doctrines is study of the word of the lord.
The lord said he would never leave us nor forsake up. Jesus said, worry not about tomorrow. Jesus is still the same today, yesterday and forever, he changes not, we do.


I am lead by the Holy Spirit to write this short word. I can tell with online activity the pulse of the world. I know many have been in fear, every EQ is prophecy, this is the birth pains, it has happened a long time, we are coming into great change, but we must not fall way from the faith, nor let world affairs distract us from our holy duties.


I have read many emails, so many are almost paralyzed by fear, or are what I call, 'head in sand Christians'. We are to know what season we are in, but we do not look at every event, as in put equals out put, one causes fear the other faith.


I call all to turn the world upside down for Jesus, and not let the world turn you upside down, it is time to take our cities, countries, nations, villages for Jesus Christ. The call remains.


I know many have been distracted by complicated life's, needs and more, I know this because the time just past where I have always seen 100-200 applications, this is a first, I have only seen a dozen . This says a lot about the state of our world, more so, the state of internet Christianity.


I pray the time we have been given by grace, this 100% free Bible college will still reach the world, this will never change. Until the darkness comes when no man can minister.


The lord be with you all in these uncertain times, cling to the lord as never before, in holy spiritual preparation.
Now, let us move on into the call the lord has for us.

NOTE- OCT 17, 2017. I am seeing many, many people continue to come to the website , I mean a lot and of late very few applications, the college is undergoing some great changes, and new things, and its 100% free, what do you have to lose? I encourage you, take the step and apply .

To God be the glory for great things He has done and continues to do.
I am personally grateful to God Almighty for successfully completing
my doctorate study in Church Administration.

It was a wonderful experience studying with the Truth and Mercy
Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies. I found the courses to be
theologically , academically and philosophically challenging. The
theological and academical balances of the courses have given me the
added advantage to adequately teach, preach , and interpret God's
word. The Dean , Dr. Abaldo and my program professor , Dr. Odame- Anti
gave me the needed one-to-one assistance during my doctorate degree
program.


Even though  the college is fully accredited , it is totally tuition
free. No hidden fees. Something that  is  highly unprecedented in the
academic world . With such  high quality courses, anyone who studies
at TMIAMS  , that person is bound to be fully equipped to teach, to
preach and to interpret God's word. I am highly blessed to be a pride
alumnus of this highly rated and life transforming Biblical College.
I have no doubt recommending this highly rated and fully accredited
College to anyone who is in search of  sound and quality theological
education.


The Doctor of Church Administration degree program has made me to
become an exceptional Church Administrator and Manager. Thanks again
to Dr. Danny and his experienced staff for making my dream come to
reality.
May God Almighty bless us as we strive to build His kingdom here on earth.

Your humbled servant,

savoir inaya - May 14, 2017

Dear Sir, Happy Sunday sir. I write to stay in touch. First is I thank God, about our college, what God did in christian education mission work within the past two months. Our afternoon adult school which we turned to a bible seminary got approved as 'BIBLE RESEARCH INSTITUTE' by the Federal Govt. Corporate Affairs Commission (C.A.C) of Nigeria from Abuja. This is fed. govt. official body that MUST REGISTER all organizations, institutions and business in Nigeria! This was made possible as a result of Doctor of Ministry degree from Truth Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Study...! 'the C.A.C officials made us know that for any organization or institution to be registered as a 'RESEARCH INSTITUTE', one of the trustees must hold a doctorate degree in that field of study. Thus, our bible seminary name got approved courtesy of D. Min degree from this great institute! registration processes will be completed
In regards to Truth And Mercy Institute For Advanced Ministry Studies

It is a great blessing from the Lord to have found, and attended this ministry collage. I would like to start by saying the individual that chooses to enroll to this institute has some serious work ahead of them. But with the dean, Dr. Danny Abaldo, as a mentor, you will excel with your studies. Prior to my enrollment, besides attending local church service, and Bible study, I had no in dept, or additional education in the ministry.

So beginning here was a challenge for me, but with prayer, help from the dean (Dr. Abaldo), and hard work I have excelled through the Bachelor of Ministry, to the Masters of Ministry, and also through the Doctor of Ministry.
My education has come a very long way from the first day of studies. I had many questions, and feedback was needed, and given, for my school work, and all my questions answered by the dean personally, this has helped me immensely in my studies. Please do not think for a second that this is a degree mill, or some kind of “run-through college, because it is defiantly not ! Just to complete the Bachelor of Ministry degree, you will at a minimum have to at least write 31,000 words, yes this is not a typo, between all the segments of the Bachelor of Ministry degree, you will write thirty one thousand words, in the essays, and your thesis. Now this is all accomplish-able, but just don't think you will type a one page essay, and get a degree, if that was the case, would you even want a degree like that ? I know I would not. Here at Truth And Mercy Institute For Advanced Ministry Studies, you can began literately a layman in the study of Ministry, and, in time, and with hard work, achieve a Doctor Degree, or even a PHD, if that is your interest !
This collage is 100% Bible based, full Gospel, and deeply invested in the correct education of it's students. Don't think that is the end, with a wide variety of study options degrees available, you may just keep coming back, as I have.
Since completing the Doctor of Ministry, I am now a student of the Bachelor of Christian Counseling Degree. Plus Dean Abaldo also has a Christian Herbal Collage, which offers a 3 level Herbalist Diploma, I see myself having years of school ahead of me, and this is all by choice. ! Do not pass up on this opportunity to begin you education, continue your education, or expand your current education, at this Collage which has a firm foundation in Jesus Christ. No excuses, I work full time, plus have a wife, and children, and with all this I still achieved my Doctorate Degree. I am not bragging, I am just saying, “YOU CAN DO IT” !!!!!!!
With My Best Regards, Dr. Charles Novak Il St. USA


Dr. Abaldo,



I tried three times to finish college but being in ministry and having a family, I simply could not keep up with payments. I have been of the strong conviction that the Lord would not approve of me going into debt. Even now, school loan debt has outpaced credit card debt.

May I just say, thank you again for what you are doing? Over the years I have audited many course just to learn and fill in gaps in my knowledge.

Only today I took advantage of a free course in Genesis offered by [Name Redacted}. It took less than one complete session for me to bow out and offer the Lord a prayer of thanks that I had not spent thousands of dollars to attend one of these renown, "reputable" institutions.

In this very first session the professor of the Genesis course maintained that creation probably not literal, that the passage is "analogical" and how we cannot know the nature or duration of the creation.

For one who believes the Bible says what it means and means what it says, Truth and Mercy Institute is like spring water in a dry desert. I had to drop a quick letter to say how much your Institute is blessing me.

Peace in Christ,

Dave Reynolds-TN St USA



My life during the studies at Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies can be likened to a mushroom. Though it is weak, it springs up even through hard anthills in an amazing way. Do you know how? It is through God's enabling power.

Studying at this college is not an easy job. It needs discipline and sacrifice in order to complete the program. There is a hard working assignments. Unless you are serious you will accomplish nothing from this school.
Yet as the Lord enables a mushroom to spring up from a hard anthill, so He has seen me through all these. It is only by His Grace my graduation from this college was made possible. Praise Him!

I believe this college came into being not by accident, it was God's plan for its existence to equip His servants. Truth and Mercy Institute of advanced Ministry Studies is a better place to study because of the following two reasons:
First, the education provided there is qualitative to meet most of the needs facing us in our 21st century. In other words it scratches where it is itching.
Second, this college enables even poor people to come and get a qualitative education since it is a free College.
My life has been changed tremendously both spiritually and intellectually through this college.
Whoever does not believe what I am saying let him taste and see. Truth and Mercy Institute is a better place to be.

In Christ,

After I noticed that the good Lord had set me a side as a worker in His vineyard, I had this deep desire to know more about God but could not afford a fee for the college until my brother and friend Dr. Tonny Aluda who had benefited more under Dr. Danny Abaldo introduced me to the Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies, here I found a father, a mentor, encourage r and a friend who through thick and thin has transformed and affected my ministry and life with the great wisdom of God's word.

I therefore recommend the Truth and Mercy institute of Advanced Studies to any person who has the call of God and passion for the ministry and need a school with expertise to take you to the next level in ministry, kindly choose this school, and your life will never remain the same again.

Dr. Danny Abaldo, thanks a lot for being a faithful servant of the Lord by choosing to give hope to your generation, may God indeed bless you richly.
I am proud to be part of this great institute and will always pray and support it, shalom

I was just using my diploma to them to show that if I can do it, they can do it. As you said, the seed as been planted. We shall see what they decide. Hoping that at least they will tell someone else and so forth. Just trying to send you more students when I have the opportunity to do so. You’re a great mentor and know what your talking about. Others would benefit from the school and your vast knowledge of The Bible. All I can do is show them the way, they will have to make the choice to do it.
I prayed last night that the school find more students and asked God to allow me to meet people that would like to seek more knowledge in theology and ministry.

I’m sure you were busy, you have two schools, family, students, ministry etc. to work on daily. I doubt you have much idle time. Ministry isn’t easy, in fact I would bet it is safe to safe it is probably than most subjects.  I’m excited to see the diploma In the mail, I know it takes time.

I recently completed my PhD at Truth and Mercy institute of Advanced Ministry Studies a long journey it was from B.M, M.S, and D.M, Ph.d Min

Truth and Mercy College is a fantastic college to study with. It is a very student friendly college, and my positive feelings about it mostly lay in its quality education offered at this college and the assistance given to the students by the Dean Dr. Danny Abaldo

Being a student at Truth and Mercy College, you will learn a lot, and you will like working with experienced people. The management of the School is the best, world-leading in Biblical studies. They have a strong global reputation.

When you are a student at Truth and Mercy College, you get a great deal of support. It’s important that you have a good relationship with the dean – I did, and got an amazing level of advice and support. As I mentioned, they are world leaders in their field, but cared about my work and my personal life. The dean was always interested about how I was doing as an international student, which was comforting.

The College has fantastic resources, offering access to everything you need for your degree such as library books which are offered for free.

When I initially thought of studying for my degree in the Ministry there were so many colleges that I came across on-line, however, I knew as soon as I saw the Truth and Mercy College on-line that this was the one for me little did I know that I had made the right decision. – It’s not just the college reputation, it’s a complete experience. The quality of education is fantastic. And the most amazing thing about this college is it’s a free tuition college, anybody with a calling to do Gods work can join and get equipped in their field.

I therefore recommend Truth and Mercy Institute of Advance Ministry Studies to any person who has the call of God with a passion for ministry and whose need is a School with the expertise to take you to the next academic level in ministry. Please join this school as you will never regret.

I take this opportunity to say thank you Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies, You have really transformed my life and have broaden my knowledge in the Christian faith. I am proud to be a part of this great school and my heart and my passion will never depart. Again I say thank you.

God bless Dr. Danny Abaldo who works tirelessly day and night to make this college a success.

This is a true testimonial from my heart, as a person that is interested in Church ministry I have seen it fit, necessary and very important for me to pursue further studies to advance my knowledge in ministry. As a result I began to search online for an accredited Bible Institute, I come in contact with a number of free online Institution which didn’t satisfied my need. As I continue my search I come in contact with Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies, I submit my application and receive a respond within a few hours of mine application. I was accepted as a student of the School to pursue my degree in Master of Ministry. I have found the Dean and founder of the School to be a very Loyal and dedicated person. One who has invested his time and his life in his student of which I am one of those recipient.




Since I have been enroll at Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies my life has been totally transformed and my knowledge in Church ministry has increase abundantly. I am very happy and delightful to have Dr. Danny Abaldo the Dean and founder of the School to be my teacher and mentor, his knowledge in theology is superb he is an effectual steward, one who does not only teach, but he elevate, motivate and inspired his scholars with great perspective of new hopes. When I came to the school I have no knowledge in the translation and pronunciation of Greek words but with the effective motivation of Dr. Danny Abaldo I receive an A+ for pronouncing the Greek alphabet, and I have now accomplish my degree in master of ministry and now pursuing my degree in D. Min. I owes it all to Dr Danny Abaldo a humble man of God who does not like to be praise as he stated that all praises belongeth unto God.




I therefore recommend Truth and Mercy Institute of Advance Ministry Studies to any person who have the call of God with a passion for ministry and needed a School with the expertise to take you to the next dimension in ministry. Please to take a hold of this school as you will never regret.




Again I want to say thank you Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies, You have transformed my life and have broaden my knowledge in the Christian faith. I am proud to be a part of this noble school and my heart and my passion will never depart. Again I say thank you.

I was searching for quite some time for a Bible college that would help me to grow, not just in regard to theological knowledge of God’s Word, but to grow as a man , as a true follower of the Lord Jesus Christ. Factual knowledge of the Holy Scriptures is important, and having a degree is not only verifiable proof of one’s commitment to studies but can become a gateway toward serving God within some established ministries. While I understand how important knowledge is in order to serve Him, just to have knowledge of the Word of God is incomplete. A knowledgeable minister would possibly make for a person who can teach the Bible, and even teach well. HOWEVER-as men and women who desire to serve God, how do we affect a world which is in rapid decay? How do we reach the lost? The answer is that we need something more than just Bible knowledge to minister God’s Truth and Mercy to this hurting world. That “something more” is found in Truth and Mercy Institute for Advanced Ministry Studies.  Dr. Dan Abaldo, the founder  and dean of this awesome and inspiring school has poured his many years of experience as an evangelist and minister of the Gospel, and in fact his very life into his students. Though this school comes to us with no financial obligation, I owe Dr. Dan a debt of gratitude which I can never pay, except to pass on what I have learned  at this school to those who need to know  our Savior.  Please join me and the others as we search the Scriptures and live the saving grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.

“I was 5 classes away from my MBA from a well known American university when I decided to stop my studies and pursue my Masters of Ministry from The Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies.” I corresponded with Dr. Abaldo and found the program to be exactly what I was looking for and needed. Truth and Mercy's programs are set up in a manner to take in consideration previous ministry training and experience......it skips the “milk” and jumps to the “meat” of the subject matter but if you require the “milk” it covers that before going on to the “meat”. Also interesting is the fact that the courses are designed for self study and research. There are not books of predetermined, denominationally oriented knowledge but the classes require an earnest and sincere non-biased research and study of God's Word.




I received my Bachelors of Ministry and am now studying for my Masters of Ministry. Because of employment requirements and life's challenges I have slowed down my studies but you can complete the programs in a relatively short period of time.




Dr. Abaldo has a vast knowledge of ministry experience including street ministry, music ministry, ministry to the down trodden, but don't be mistaken he doesn't live in an ivory tower he has lived life and lives life where he ministers. He has experienced life as poor and needy, he relates well because he has been there. I have found him to be quite theologically sound for my Sovereign Grace Baptist background . I have found that his years of experience and insight shed a whole new “out of the traditional box” of thinking for me. His one on one interaction with you is delightful and insightful.




I urge anyone looking to improve their ministry walk to consider Truth and Mercy. The cost: nada, nothing, zilch......an outstanding Biblical education for free....What A Deal!!!! It is expensive to operate a Bible Institute whether brick and mortar or on-line. If you choose to study at Truth and Mercy please remember to support him and his work with your freewill offerings.




I know you will expand your ministry walk with your studies at The Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies. Call, email, or write today, it will do your heart good!

I was looking for a ministry school that would allow me to study at my own pace with a personal mentor! at Truth and Mercy Institute of Advanced Ministry Studies, I received more than that. A personal mentor who is not afraid of telling your strong points and weaknesses, he helped me realize that I could communicate by spoken word as well as written. This has helped me write three books and record several sermons and teachings.
If you are looking for a true life changing experience: Look no further than this!

My  story is not just a story but I was lost and know I'm found. I was not always the role model I would like to be  but since I started at Truth and Mercy institute of advance studies I've learned to start each day with the best intentions to make a positive difference in peoples lives. This Institute  has shown me that hope is still alive and that I still posses the ability to prove that I'm human. I never thought of me as someone with a voice and I never thought that  anyone would be interested in my perspective of what the bible says. This institute has helped me to find my voice. I can now proudly say not another road Lord just stronger boots to keep me on the same road I am.
Thank you Truth and mercy institute of  advanced ministry Studies you were my light in my darkness.

I am so happy I found this school on-line. I was looking for a school were I could get a religious degree, and found 'Truth and Mercy School of Advanced Ministry Studies'. Don't be Leary because this is a free school, you will get out of it what you put in. Doctor Danny Abaldo was with me by email during my studies for the Bachelors of Ministry degree. First he was there to answer any concerns and he stayed with me as a mentor. I found he was quick to respond to any questions.

It made me so proud that I made the Deans List, because I had not been in school for a number of years. You will not just be given your degree, you will have to work for it. I found it worth while and enjoyed my studies, while gaining a greater understanding of the Bible. I would recommend this school to anyone wanting to study for the ministry, or just wants to know more about the Holy Scriptures.

I started Truth and Mercy Institute with a certain amount of hesitation. I had searched for free or affordable religious degree programs and found the school by chance.  I am happy to tell you that I am 100% pleased and grateful for my experience with the Institute.  I first received my Bachelors, then my Master in Ministry.  It has been a wonderful, enriching, and positive experience. I have learned so much and was able to express what I learned on paper.  The documents you will receive are professional and attractive.  The Dean, Dr. Abaldo,  is a wonderful inspiration and Spirit filled teacher that will keep you motivated and truly cares about the students and their progress.  He has poured so much energy, time, and passion into the school it is not a wonder that is a phenomenal organization and experience. I am 110% happy I decided to give a chance and so proud of what I accomplished and learned all for God’s Glory! Amen !

Keep up the fantastic work Dr. Abaldo and the Board of Truth and Mercy Institute, you are helping people and changing lives!

Truth and Mercy Institute is a school designed by God Himself to raise up christian leaders in the word who are sound in biblical knowledge and principles. The knowledge and skills I have acquired from truth and mercy is timeless.  The courses structures are the best and second to none. My  understanding in scripture study and interpretation is highly deepened, my preaching is not boring anymore, I minister with confidence,  through the skills I acquired from the institution. Truth and Mercy institute is a college I will recommend to any person who have the call of God and need sound biblical knowledge to catapult you unto the height God has destined for you. This is not a degree mill, you will work hard for your degree and come out on the other side with lots of knowledge you need for that great ministry. You will never regret you did!

Dear Dr. Dan,
I received the docs, thank you!
I just wanted to send a letter of thanks to you for making this wonderful opportunity available.
Your Godly encouragement and guidance have helped me tremendously through my journey.
I appreciated you letting me know how to proceed with each course and giving me ways to correct any mistakes I made.
It was also comforting to know that whenever I had a question you would answer right away.  I also want to thank you for your enthusiasm -It is contagious. I can tell that you are genuinely interested in your students. May God bless you and Mrs. Abaldo abundantly, and I pray for the continued success of Truth and Mercy Institute.
In Christ,

I am so happy I found this school online. I was looking for a school where I could
get a religious degree, and found 'Truth and Mercy School of Advanced Ministry
Studies'. Don't be Leary because this is a free school, you will get out of it what you
put in. Doctor Danny Abaldo was with me by email during my studies for the
Bachelors of Ministry degree. First he was there to answer any concerns and he
stayed with me as a mentor. I found he was quick to respond to any questions.
It made me so proud that I made the Deans List, because I had not been in
school for a number of years. You will not just be given your degree; you will have
to work for it. I found it worthwhile and enjoyed my studies, while gaining a
greater understanding of the Bible. I would recommend this school to anyone
wanting to study for the ministry, or just wants to know more about the Holy
Scriptures.
Thank you so much Dr. Abaldo
