are familiar with the deceptive nature of their fruit,
are familiar with the end product of a lie.

My servants will not find the humble heart in distractions such as these,
where a promise holds no worth,
where a guarantee does not last past departure of the vocal.”

by the blood of God,
by the testimony of His servants.”

in the presence of their loving God seen to be still shepherding His flock.”
