What Makes God Wonder?

            The prophet Isaiah wrote, “And He saw that there was no man, And wondered that there was no intercessor: Therefore His arm brought salvation unto Him; And His righteousness, it sustained Him.” 59:16. There are so many things that make us wonder. We behold the original Seven Wonders of

Submitting To Our Elders

            The Scriptures says, “Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.”  Hebrews 13:17.
