|Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise
by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose
the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to
shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the
things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him.
1 Corinthians 1 (26 - 29)
|The next time you are feeling despised by this world, remember these words ~

Ecclesiastes 1 (14, 17, 18) words of King Solomon

return of our Master, who conquered the Dragon and defeated Death.
. . . We are entrusted with a sacred mission to seek out those wandering through the
darkness and show them the way to their true home. Along the way we join other
spirit-warriors living in the shadowlands, revealing the ancient texts to those searching
for the Truth.
. . . Countless souls deceived by the lies of the Enemy have long ago forgotten they
are children of the King. They are held captive in the dungeon of Sin, guarded by the
fallen ones, Doubt and Fear, not knowing the King gave his own blood as ransom for
. . . It is up to us mere mortal vessels, through song lyrics and personal encounters to
rescue those in danger of being consumed by the grave and lost forever to darkness.
We are Vexing Souls.
