Final Words of Scripture: Psalms 103:9-12
9 He will not always accuse, nor will He harbor His anger forever;
10 He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, So great is His love for those who fear Him;
12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
To God Be The Glory!
