A special message form Socorro  Parra Chavez, to each of you: My Hope is that each of you recognize the Reality of The Risen Christ. Realize that Christ Jesus (GOD The Son) is Alive and because HE Lives We Shall Live with HIM for Eternity, way beyond this Earthly grave. “Yet a little while and the world will see me no more, but you will see me.  Because I live, you also will live. In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.” John‬ ‭14:19-20‬.  Realize that The WORD (Holy Bible) is Alive. “For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” Hebrews‬ ‭4:12-13‬. Realize that the Holy Spirit (Advocate / GOD The Holy Spirt) will Fill you Renewing your Mind, for HE will Reside inside each of you; bringing total Conviction, Spiritual Fruits, Spiritual Gifts, The Truth and The Power to enable you to carry out The Great Commission of Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus. You must want to be Filled, you must be cleansed to be Filled, you must ask to be Filled and lastly you must Believe to be Filled. “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19-20‬. Realize also, that as a Believing Follower Of Christ Jesus, we are Alive; I am Alive through Christ — Take up your Cross Daily; Focusing on and Following Christ Jesus, and persevere till the end of your Earthly Life. “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.  Whoever believes in me, though they die, yet shall they live, and everyone who lives and believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?”John‬ ‭11:25-26‬.  So Rejoice with Me for I am more Alive now than before. Amen, whoever Believes this message, you shall see me again in Heaven and in the Rapture.
