1 John 4:7-8

"Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God: and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love." (KJV)

"LORD ~ I Have A Request" ~ LORD ~ I needn't tell YOU what's happening these days. This beautiful world YOU created is hurting in so many ways! The ugliness of violence and hate, more and more is raising it's head. Instead of moving towards Peace and Love more darkness is being spread! What will it take to have people know that Love can conquer all? Are YOU actually considering another flood of forty days and nights of rainfall??? Before YOU do I beseech this of YOU, please give your children another chance, to change our ways towards peace-filled days, and end this hate-filled advance! I know I shouldn't put it this way but LORD I hate all the hate!!! In trying to maintain a heart of Love, I refuse to let the hate dominate!!! Love can actually change this world and do it one heart at a time! ~ LORD ~ Please enter and touch EVERY heart, that's the request of this rhyme!!! WTA-IV 7/12/2016

There is a big book that has been written about an Angel of Christ ..She threw herself into the abyss of hate to bring her children home ... The future is a bleak one for many of planet earth ..Christ is going home and taking me with him On a wish I hope to see you there I'm doing okay I've got a handful of friends to carry me

Walter I found this interesting poem where you have a request to the Lord. Nice job. With all the hate it's good to see your statement about love changing the world. We are close to other momentus events with far-reaching consequences. I explore some of this in my book "I go to Prepare a Place." Keep up the good writing, Walter.

The rainbow is the contract between God and man that he will not flood again. But he has other elements at his disposal. At some point God is going to shut the door on mercy and forgiveness and all those who had time to repent are going to realize there time wasn't well spent. Then they will be dead with no recollection or written in the book of life's ressurection. You can't save those who won't save themselves. Nice write WTA.

Very touching request, and that's why he hasn't brought the end yet, he wants all to understand and change their ways, but stubborn humans will be disappointed when that day comes. 2Peter3:9 Excellent write!
