To annihilate and destroy “world system living” of the believer and lead them back to their rightful place – Kingdom . Always reminding that we are peculiar people-not like everyone else, royal priesthood-Kingdom decent, chosen generation-handpicked by God. To instill the thought and intent of Christ and that is, understanding our lives are emphatically derivative of our thoughts and spoken words .
