"In Him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And ye are complete in Him."—Colossians 2:9, 10.

All the attributes of Christ, as God and man, are at our disposal. All the fulness of the Godhead, whatever that marvellous term may comprehend, is ours to make us complete. He cannot endow us with the attributes of Deity; but He has done all that can be done, for He has made even His divine power and Godhead subservient to our salvation.

His omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence, immutability and infallibility, are all combined for our defence. Arise, believer, and behold the Lord Jesus yoking the whole of His divine Godhead to the chariot of salvation! How vast His grace, how firm His faithfulness, how unswerving His immutability, how infinite His power, how limitless His knowledge! All these are by the Lord Jesus made the pillars of the temple of salvation; and all, without diminution of their infinity, are covenanted to us as our perpetual inheritance.

The fathomless love of the Saviour's heart is every drop of it ours; every sinew in the arm of might, every jewel in the crown of majesty, the immensity of divine knowledge, and the sternness of divine justice, all are ours, and shall be employed for us. The whole of Christ, in His adorable character as the Son of God, is by Himself made over to us most richly to enjoy. His wisdom is our direction, His knowledge our instruction, His power our protection, His justice our surety, His love our comfort, His mercy our solace, and His immutability our trust.

He makes no reserve, but opens the recesses of the Mount of God and bids us dig in its mines for the hidden treasures. "All, all, all are yours," saith He, "be ye satisfied with favour and full of the goodness of the Lord." Oh! how sweet thus to behold Jesus, and to call upon Him with the certain confidence that in seeking the interposition of His love or power, we are but asking for that which He has already faithfully promised.

Thank you for that portion from Spurgeon. That comes at a good time in my life right now as my Son Skip and I are involved in spiritual warfare against the forces of evil that have captured certain people of whom we are engaged in counseling.

Last week, I was going to journey to Maine to visit Skip and spend a couple of days with him. The evil one flattened me with an unexplained illness and I spent Saturday in bed hardly able to get up. Needless to say, I couldn't go. I'm feeling better today and Skip is coming here to Massachusetts to spend a coup;e of days.

I say all of this because when Satan attacks, my hope is in Christ Jesus to protect me and my Son Skip. Jesus is so much more powerful than all the forces of evil combined. He is my protector as I venture out do do His will in setting free those who are in the prison of depression, and other mental challenges.

Again, Thank you for your thread, I love it and receive it to my heart.

Dear Brother Chopper,
I will keep you and Skip in prayer. That our Gracious Lord who keeps all promises will keep you protected, covered, and securely within His embrace as any hurts, occurrences may be healed and resolved. That you as not only family, may come together, but also as Stewarts and wards who continue to minister unto those in need. In Jesus name I pray, that our God will hear our plea, and supplications on you all's behalf. Amen!

Thank you so very much. You are a special friend to me. Skip and I have been hurt physically. Skip had a stroke not to long ago and is fighting back as I write this. I've had strokes and heart attacks among other operations. We're convinced that Jesus separated the two of us for a ministry of helps and deliverance, so we can't quit.

Your prayers for us is certainly appreciated and needed, thank you.
