Edgar Allan Poe says: “Poetry is the rhythmical creation of beauty in words.” The Haiku verse certainly proves Poe’s point!

It sure is funny how the disciples and apostles of Christ preached and taught the mysteries…
When most people think of inoculations, receiving small doses of the diseases they are hoping to produce immunity to, they think of infectious viruses that either have become epidemic or pandemic. Surprisingly, not only is God’s “call” to go viral—to take the Full Gospel of Christ to the entire world—still a command that is in effect today, but also rapidly spreading the Good News in a very short amount of time not only is an incredibly “good thing” to do but also is an extremely easy task to accomplish these days. The problem is that most of this century’s professed believers prefer to be vaccinated with a small dose of the Holy Spirit so they won’t become contagious, and that is because they don’t want to be responsible for spreading the Full Gospel of Christ (the Great Commission) by using all of the fullness of Grace, which includes the Holy Spirit’s power of transformation. Fire Insurance is all most believers desire!
The Pharisees or Sadducees’ leaven (their spiritual pride and religious hypocrisy) spiritually, morally, emotionally, and physically alters the internal and external characteristics of the lives around them. In other words, a spiritually proud religious hypocrite swiftly poisons the inward emotions and attitudes of other individuals. Additionally, a spiritually proud religious hypocrite’s outward behaviors always dishonors, disrespects, and diminishes the “much good” that genuinely holy and righteous people do. That’s why believers today still need to watch out for the Pharisees and Sadducees’ leaven, for it rots within and affects without.
When the apostle Paul says the righteous believers are NOT meant to go through God’s end-times Wrath, the apostle Paul means exactly that. So that God would not pour out any of His Wrath upon His righteous sons and daughters, He poured out His full cup of Wrath upon His only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ. As a result, the Bride of Christ (every born again, saved, justified, and fully sanctified Jew and Gentile) would be RESCUED from (would escape) ALL of the end-times Wrath to come!
No, this is not a rated-X blog entry. Sexagenarians are people from 60 to 69 years old. For sure, sexagenarians are like the truth in Chinese wise man’s name: Yung No Mo!
