in the love time of My blessings;
in the panic of alarm.

both to forgive and to erase.

at a child,
at another saint of God.

a need for apology for the attacking of the righteous,
a need for forgiveness by his brothers for his deed of shame.
My servant may have a need to stand in repentance before the assembly of God.”
