He lost his blood because of our sins. Please let us all believe in him. Believe in the great God that owns everything. That you leave the idols of before, you will never get anything from them. He came like a poor person to this earth. The guide has come who is the way. Appreciation by all the people all over the world because he’s helping people. We will remove all the idols and they shall never appear. The Bible has said that try to convert yourself before his coming, when he will come, before a conversion they will be no help. Please believe the good message that has been brought. Why don’t you believe in it. Jesus has been sent to this world as if his only giving life to Heaven. That our father helps us, heaven is still great waiting for us. The bad has died, or has been destroyed when Jesus died, the good has been left after his death.
