    Matthew 10:16
    “BEHOLD… I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be therefore WISE as serpents, and HARMLESS as doves.”

    1 Thessalonians 5
    "But of the TIMES AND SEASONS, brothers, you have no need that I write unto you.

    "For you know perfectly that the day of the Lord comes as a thief in the night."

    "While people are saying… “PEACE AND SECURITY,” destruction will come upon them SUDDENLY, like labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they WILL NOT ESCAPE!"

    "But ye, brethren, are NOT in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief."

    "You are ALL children of LIGHT, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness."

    "Therefore let us NOT SLEEP, as others do; but let us WATCH AND BE SOBER!"

    "But since we belong to the DAY, let us be SOBER, putting on the BREASTPLATE OF FAITH AND LOVE, AND THE HELMET OF HOPE AND SALVATION!"

    "For God has NOT appointed us to WRATH, but to OBTAIN SALVATION by our Lord Jesus Christ!"

    "Who DIED for us, that, whether we WAKE OR SLEEP, we should live together with Him."

    "This is why you must ENCOURAGE AND HELP EACH OTHER, just as you are already doing."

    "And we ask you, to KNOW THEM (Me 😎) which labour among you, and have CHARGE OVER YOU (👑) in the Lord and give you INSTRUCTION!"

    "And to esteem them VERY HIGHLY in love for their work's sake. And be at PEACE among yourselves."

    "Now we urge you… WARN THEM that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be PATIENT toward ALL men."

    "See that none render evil for evil unto ANY  man; but always follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to ALL men."

    "REJOICE FOR EVERMORE… Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."

    "Don't turn away God's Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test all things. Hold fast to what is GOOD!" Abstain from ALL appearance of evil!"

    "And the very God of PEACE sanctify you COMPLETELY; and I pray God your whole Spirit and Soul and Body be preserved BLAMELESS unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!"

    "FAITHFUL  is he that CALLS you, who also WILL do it!"

    "I CHARGE YOU… Before the Lord to have this read to ALL the people!"

    "The GRACE of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen."
