But, it is confronting to many difficulties, because some sinners used by devils, they become like devils, tried to destroy our church and to put some of us in prison, they used money but for us we won by prayers and fasting only. Because Jesus love his Church,he will not be content to see people destroy his church,but Jesus bless all Persons who build his church,they will gain rewards of crowns in the heaven.In the heaven where we will live in peace with Jesus for ever. MALACHI 4:1-3.For behold,the day comes,burning like a furnace;and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff;and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,says the LORD of hosts,so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.but for you who fear my Name,the sun of righteousness shall rise,with healing in its wings.You shall go forth leaping like calves from the stall.And you shall tread down the wicked,for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet,on the day when I act,says the LORD of hosts. It is also abominable to put your brother Christian in court:1 Corinthians 6-1-11.Does any one of you,when he has a case against his neightbor,dare to go to law before the unrighteous,and not before the saints?.Or do you not know that the saints will judge the World?... 2 Chronicles 20:15.Do not fear or be dismayed because of this great multitude,for the battle is not yours but God’s. Luc 1:37.For nothing will be impossible with God. Romans 4:21.And being fully assured that what He had promised,he was able also to perform. Psalms 91:1-16.I will say to the LORD,My refuge and my fortress.My God … Genesis 12:3.And I will bless those who bless you,And the one who curses you I will curse. 2Chronicles 15:2.the LORD is with you,when you are with Him.And if you seek Him;But if you forsake Him,He will forsake you. James 1:27.this is pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father,to visit orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself unstained by the world. I ask persons from our country and from other countries,that they are welcome into METHODIST CHURCH IN RWANDA.To come into our church it is free.
