Promise Kept

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men. And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified. He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you.

And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word. And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him. Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me.

[The Gospel According to Matthew, 28:1-10]

Dear Mr. Porretto,

Could you write a piece concerning The Whole Armor of God?

I'm sure this is not an easy task.
As a contemporary philosopher I attach high credence to your thoughtful sentiment on such lofty matters. Maybe a reflection in regards to the time that comes to us would add a sublime context to it.

Whole faith is never easy is it?
Yet saving grace is such a beautiful thing and worth any tribulation. Strength and dignity of faith and all.

I have read a bit of what Ms Ann Barnhardt wrote. I think what she put in words was very well done.

I think too we are going to need to really understand what God's Armor is before long.

Kind regards.
