Tough week for dominionists

Posted: July 1, 2015 in christian living, ecclesia, Jesus

Tough week for American dominionist Christians.  Good week to be a citizen of the kingdom of God though.  All is well in that kingdom and I am happy to report that it’s supreme court has never made a corrupt decision.   The true believers primary citizenship is in that kingdom.

Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,To the pilgrims of the Dispersion in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, in sanctification of the Spirit, for obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:  Grace to you and peace be multiplied. – 1 Peter NKJV
