The True Church is the ONE Body of Risen Christ flowing with the ONE Spirit of Father and Son of Righteousness, Holiness, Grace, Glory: unmanifest Majestic Glory of the Father and manifest glory of the Son that He gives to His Bride so she can arise and shine, reflecting the glory of the Son of Righteousness who reflects the Majestic Glory of the Father.
“In these last days He has spoken to us by the Son, whom He appointed the Heir of all things, through whom also He created the world. He reflects the glory of God and bears the very stamp of His Nature, upholding the universe by HIS Word of Power” Hebrews 1:2-3
“For we do not follow cleverly devised myths when we MADE KNOWN to you the Power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but eyewitnesses of his majesty. For when Jesus received honor and glory from God the Father and the Voice was borne to him by the Majestic Glory, ‘This is My beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased,’ we heard this Voice borne from heaven, for we were with him on the holy mountain. And we HAVE the prophetic Word made more sure. You will do well to pay attention to this AS to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts” 2 Peter 1:16-19
“Conquer and keep My Words to the end, I will give you power…just AS I received Power from My Father; and I will give you the morning star” ~Ascended Glorified Christ, the Words of the Son of God who has eyes LIKE flames of fire and feet LIKE a furnace, in Revelation 1:12-16, 2:18,26-28
“[The Church] the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints; what is the immeasurable greatness of his Power in us who believe, according to the working of his great might which he accomplished in Christ when he raised him from the dead and made him sit at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come; and he has put all things under his feet and has made him the Head over all things for the Church, which is HIS BODY, the fulness of him who fills all [in Christ] in all [in Christ in you]” Ephesians 1:18-23 RSV
The false church is the harlot, the antithesis of the Bride who belongs to Christ and HAS His Spirit (Romans 8:9).
The false church is also the five FOOLISH virgins who do not honor and value the sevenfold (complete) HOLY Spirit, fire and glory that comes down from the Throne; seven (complete) spirits from the Throne sent to earth (Revelation 5:6) EVERY good endowment and EVERY spiritual gift coming down from the Father of lights to be a KIND of first fruits (the Bride) of the First Fruit: the First Born from the dead in the NEW Covenant between Father and Son (James 1:16-18; Revelation 1:5);
just AS the NHONE where righteousness dwells IN CHRIST at the Throne, ALWAYS before God (Isaiah 66:22), comes down AS a bride (Revelation 21:2) so the Bride can HAVE the glory that comes down (21:11) so her LIGHT is the glory of Christ, so her LAMP is the Lamb of God (21:23) to SEE and behold; taking the Water of the Word of Life and Spirit without price, for Jesus paid the FULL PRICE, ransomed by God in His OWN Blood (Revelation 5:9-10) made a KINGDOM and priests to God to reign on earth THROUGH Jesus when we RECEIVE abundant grace and the free GIFT of righteousness to reign in LIFE (Romans 5:17; Revelation 5:10; 20:6).
“Come let me show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb…having the glory” Revelation 21:9,11
A pure Bride for The Son of God, the crucified, died, buried, resurrected, ascended, glorified at the Right Hand of the Father on the Throne; having the faith, hope, love, grace, glory, wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, redemption, Spirit, Power, maturity in Christ, eyes to SEE, ears to HEAR, hearts to CONCEIVE and PERCEIVE what God has prepared for those who LOVE Him that God REVEALS through the SPIRIT; imparted and taught by the SPIRIT; having the MIND of Christ and POSSESSING the Spirit of God (1 Corinthians 1:30-2:16) coming down from the Throne of Christ, the Spirit and the Bride who are ONE in Christ and Christ in you (Revelation 22:17; John 15:4); those who CONQUER have this Heritage; the Fountain of Water of Life, Risen Christ in you, as you abide in Christ seated with Him in heavenly places (Revelation 3:18-21, 21:6-7, John 15:4; Ephesians 2:6);
OF the River that brings resurrection new LIFE and SPIRIT to the Bride, the true Church (John 4:10-24, 6:63, 7:37-39; Ezekiel 47:9,12; Revelation 22:1-5,17), IF and WHEN you take Risen Christ as The Head of your spirit and soul and body and life, so He can sanctify you wholly (1 Thessalonians 5:23-24), cleanse you fully, truly wash you with the pure, crystal-clear, brilliant Word (Ephesians 5:23-26; Revelation 22:1), make you spotless, UNVEILED, having the glory (splendor) coming down from Above (Ephesians 27; 2 Corinthians 3:18; Revelation 21:11,23, 22:1,17), pure, holy (set apart), perfect (lacking nothing), blameless and irreproachable (Colossians 1:22), presenting you betrothed to HIMSELF, joining you to HIMSELF, “two become one” nourished and cherished AS members of HIS BODY (Ephesians 5:29-31) as a part of the Bride, a part of the ONE Body of Christ, AND individually (1 Corinthians 12:27)
AS a pure “bride” betrothed to her ONE Husband (2 Corinthians 11:2b); leaving your biological inheritance of fallen Adam (Ephesians 5:31) for the Heritage of Risen Christ (Revelation 21:6-7) and giving your “yes” and “I do” and “troth” (faithfulness) to the Beloved Son, the Word made flesh, the King of kings and Lord of lords (Revelation 19:10-16); making yourself READY (19:7) having come out of the dark fallen world system (mystery babylon the dwelling place of demons and foul spirits, mixed wine, greed, falsehood, lies, deception, manipulation, control by fear and intimidation, life-long bondage to fear of death, plagues, sins, self-righteousness, self-glorifying, pestilence, famine, mourning, enslaved souls yoked to the “system” of darkness with evil agenda, diseases from unclean spirits, pride, lust, sexual perversion and sexual immorality, abortion, murder/anger, violence, killing, stealing, destroying, adultery/idolatry, witchcraft, sorcery deceiving all the nations (Revelation 18:1-24)) of the first Adam, under the god of this world who blinds minds, fathered by lies, under the influence of the spirit of this world, error, under the sorcery that deceives all the nations, the deceiver of the whole world and accuser of the brethren, sons, brides, and not the Spirit of Truth and resurrection Life of the LAST ADAM, Jesus the Christ, under the Father of lights, the Father of glory;
coming to glorified Jesus, cleaving/yoking to the Lamb of God, the True Shepherd of your soul, the True Guardian of your soul (1 Peter 2:24-25; Revelation 7:17) AS a “wife” of the Lamb who is WITH the Lord of lords and King of kings, called and chosen and faithful to the Lamb (Revelation 17:14); having FOUND the profound mystery IN CHRIST (Ephesians 5:32); stewarding the mysteries of God (1 Corinthians 4:1).
The Spirit of the Lord (of the sevenfold HOLY Spirit of God and his Christ (Isaiah 11:2)) and HIS anointing comes down from the Throne to abide in the bride, the wife of the Lamb, to teach her all that is true and no lies AND teach her to abide IN CHRIST (1 John 2:20-28); made READY (Matthew 25:1-13; Revelation 19:7).
The Bride is NOW the Body of Christ AND individually members of it (1 Corinthians 12:27). As many as are baptized INTO CHRIST putting ON Christ (Galatians 3:27); putting on the fire light of the glory of Christ (2 Corinthians 4:4,6-7,11; Romans 13:12,14; Revelation 21:11; Zechariah 2:5; Luke 23:49; Ephesians 4:24); putting on Christ as a garment of salvation, robe of righteousness, AND white wedding garment; broken heart healed, set free from the yoke of the world system having yoked to Risen Christ, comforted by The Comforter; made a tree of righteousness; given a double portion, everlasting joy, SEEING and acknowledging ALL God has done for you through the Last Adam, Jesus, and the finished work of the Cross, vindicated, the burning torch of salvation has come, light of glory has come in you with Christ in you; given a new married Name, His Delight in you as you delight in Him; the Bridegroom rejoices over the Bride, crowned by making Christ The Head of your body and soul and spirit and life and relationships (Isaiah 61:1-11, 62:1-5). The redeemed IN CHRIST are the NEW cities of Light of the Glory of Christ (62:12); CHRIST in you is a new temple of God where HOLY Spirit dwells and flows Living Water.
“Come to Me…yoke…learn…find rest for your soul” ~Jesus in Matthew 11:28-30
“Learn Christ! taught IN HIM as the Truth is IN JESUS. PUT OFF your old nature which BELONGS to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful lusts, [pride and lust of eyes and flesh, OF the world 1 John 2:15-19], and be renewed in the SPIRIT of your minds, and PUT ON the NEW NATURE, created after the LIKENESS of God in TRUE righteousness and holiness” Ephesians 4:20-24
The Spirit of the Lord and HIS anointing in you teaches you ALL truth and no lies; taught to abide IN CHRIST, no longer the dark world of satan’s kingdoms. Fallen Adam was tricked, fooled, deceived, manipulated into giving the deed to the world to satan; giving his mind and authority to the snake. But NOW in the fullness of time — God sent HIMSELF in the flesh, HIS WORD in the flesh, Jesus of King David’s lineage in the flesh, Son of David, and HOLY Spirit conceived, Son of God so He could do what NO HUMAN BEING could do: take our sins into HIS BODY on the cursed tree, so we might DIE to sin and COME ALIVE together with Christ to righteousness (1 Peter 2:24); God made Christ our NEW wisdom coming down from Above, our NEW RIGHTEOUSNESS, sanctification and redemption, the forgiveness of sins, DELIVERED from evil, DELIVERED from the dominion of darkness of the OLD worlds: OLD heaven, earth, and polluted seas AND transferred into Christ, baptized into Christ putting on Christ AS a garment of Holy Spirit fire, glory light, and eyes to see; the seven (complete) spirits from the Throne sent to earth.
“So you must ALSO consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God IN CHRIST JESUS” Romans 6:11
The Bride, the Body of Christ flowing with the Holy Word and the Holy Spirit, fire, and glory River of Water of Life is a new heaven and new earth where RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells; apart from Christ is the old fallen heavens, angels and demons of lucifer who counterfeit everything to fool and trick and deceive (even the elect), the old earth “forms” without the POWER of the Holy Spirit, and the old polluted waters, multitudes of unclean spirits of those who refuse to come to Jesus, repent, turn, and return to God our Father to RECEIVE the HOLY Spirit; Christ being formed in you to mature IN CHRIST; receiving the Holy Spirit and fire baptism (Matthew 3:11-12; Mark 9:49; Luke 3:16-17, 12:49-50) to be baptized INTO CHRIST to PUT ON Christ; putting on the NEW NATURE and PARTAKING of the divine nature (Galatians 3:27, 4:19, 5:1-25, 6:14-15; Luke 24:49; Ephesians 4:22-24; 2 Peter 1:3-4) through the precious and VERY GREAT PROMISES, prophesied in the old covenant, and fulfilled IN CHRIST in the NEW covenant; the BETTER Promises and MUCH MORE EXCELLENT Promises (Hebrews 8:6); Christ in you as you abide in Christ; the MUCH MORE of RECEIVING abundant grace AND the free gift of righteousness to reign IN LIFE through Jesus the Christ (Romans 5:17); dead to sin and come alive together WITH CHRIST in righteousness (Romans 6:11; 1 Peter 2:24; Revelation 5:10, 20:6).
“Since we HAVE these Promises, beloved [Bride], let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of the BODY and SPIRIT, and make HOLINESS perfect in the fear of God” 2 Corinthians 7:1
Singing the NEW Song (Revelation 5:9); receiving NEW wine into NEW wineskins; clothed with the NEW garment of Christ (Luke 5:36-38). IF you have never tasted the NEW you will say “the old is good” (39).
“Behold, I give YOU authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions (Revelation 9:3-21), and over ALL the power of the enemy; and NOTHING shall hurt you” ~Jesus in Luke 10:19
“Do not HARM the earth or the sea or the trees, till we have SEALED the servants of God on their foreheads…the locusts given power LIKE the power of scorpions of the [old] earth; they are told NOT TO HARM those of mankind who HAVE the SEAL of God upon their foreheads” Revelation 7:3, 9:3-4
“God’s servants worship Him; they see His Face, and His Name is on their foreheads” Revelation 22:3-4
“Because you have KEPT MY WORD, I will KEEP YOU from the hour of trial, which is coming upon the whole world, to try those who dwell upon the [old] earth. I am coming soon; HOLD FAST what you HAVE, so that no one may seize YOUR crown [a crown of LIFE (Revelation 2:10]. He who CONQUERS…I will write on you the Name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the NEW Jerusalem [beloved Bride; represented by Sarah (not Hagar in bondage); OF the NEW covenant; free and mature IN CHRIST (Galatians 4:22-31; Colossians 1:25-28)] that comes down from My God out of the [NEW] heaven, and My Own NEW Name [Bridegroom]” Revelation 3:10-12
“God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the HOLY Spirit and with POWER. He went about doing good and healing ALL that were oppressed by the devil, for God was WITH HIM” Acts 10:38
“Whoever is born of God OVERCOMES the world [kingdoms of satan]; and this is the VICTORY that overcomes the world, our faith. Who is it that OVERCOMES the world but you who BELIEVE JESUS is the Son of God. This is He who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ…And the SPIRIT is the Witness, because the SPIRIT is TRUTH. There a three Witnesses: the Spirit, the Water, and the Blood; and these three agree. IF we receive the testimony of men, the Testimony of God is GREATER; for this is the Testimony of God that He has borne Witness to His Son. You who BELIEVE in the Son of God HAS the Testimony IN YOURSELF…and you who HAVE the Son have LIFE; he who HAS NOT the Son HAS NOT LIFE…And we KNOW the the Son of God GIVES us Understanding, to KNOW Him Who is TRUE; and we are IN HIM Who is True, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the TRUE GOD and ETERNAL LIFE. Little children keep yourselves from idols” 1 John 5:4-21
“And His Name, by FAITH in HIS Name, has made this man STRONG, whom you see and know; the the FAITH which is THROUGH JESUS has given the man this PERFECT HEALTH in the presence of you all” Acts 3:16
The Author of Life (Acts 3:15), was given POWER over all flesh (John 17:2), who can give YOU His Words to KNOW in Truth Jesus came from the Father (17:8). Jesus was glorified by His Father; Jesus is glorified IN YOU (17:10); kept in HIS NAME, guarded (17:12); having HIS JOY fulfilled in you (17:13); kept from the evil one (17:15); no longer OF this world (17:16); sanctified in Truth; Thy Word is Truth (17:17); sent into the world AS Jesus was sent into the world (17:18); consecrated IN TRUTH (17:19); believing in Jesus with your words (17:20); receiving and HAVING the glory (John 17:22-23; Revelation 21:11); the NHONE coming down AS a bride (Revelation 21:1-2) as Jesus desires that YOU be WITH HIM where He is NOW to behold HIS glory (John 17:24; 2 Corinthians 3:18); the Bride changing into her Bridegroom’s likeness from one degree of glory to another; for this comes from the Lord who is the SPIRIT; unveiled by the Bridegroom (3:14-16); light shining in the darkness, shining in our HEARTS to GIVE the light of the knowledge of the GLORY of God in the face [presence] of Christ. We have THIS TREASURE in our earthen vessels (4:6-7); the LIFE of Risen Christ manifested in our bodies, in our mortal flesh (10b,11b).
“O Righteous Father, the world does NOT KNOW Thee, but I KNOW Thee and KNOW those you sent Me. I make KNOWN to them Thy Name, and I make it KNOWN that the LOVE that Thou dost LOVE Me may be IN THEM and I IN THEM” ~Jesus in John 17:25-26
“IF you have MY commandments and keep them, you LOVE Me, My Father will LOVE you and I LOVE you and MANIFEST MYSELF to you” ~Jesus in John 14:21
“IF you LOVE Me, you will keep MY WORD, and My Father will LOVE you, and WE WILL COME to you AND make our HOME with you” ~Jesus in John 14:23
IF any one is IN CHRIST, you are a NEW creature of the NEW creation of the NEW covenant, the OLD, former things have passed away, behold the NEW has come (2 Corinthians 5:17).
“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth and the FORMER THINGS shall not be remembered or come to mind” (Isaiah 65:17) “Bring all your brethren [Bride] from all nations AS an offering to the Lord…in a CLEAN VESSEL to the House of the Lord…For AS the new heavens and the new earth…remain before Me, says the Lord…all flesh shall come to worship before Me. You shall go forth and look upon the dead bodies of the men that have REBELLED against Me; for their worm shall not die, their fire shall not be quenched, and they shall be an abhorrence to all flesh” (Isaiah 66:20-24).
“Let LIGHT shine out of darkness…shining in our HEARTS to give the light of the knowledge of the GLORY of God in the face [presence of light] of Christ. We have THIS TREASURE in earthen vessels to show that the transcendent POWER belongs to God and not to us…so the LIFE of Jesus may ALSO be manifested in our BODIES…in our mortal flesh” 2 Corinthians 4:6-11
“Gain Christ and be found IN HIM (Galatians 3:8-9)…Make Christ your own for He has made YOU His Own (3:12)…One thing: forgetting what lies behind…pressing forward in the upward call of God IN CHRIST…mature minded…HOLDING TRUE to what we have ATTAINED [in Christ]…not like those who live as enemies of the Cross of Christ…their minds set on [old] earthly things. But our common wealth is in the [New] heaven…when we are subject to [the Bridegroom, the Head of the Bride]” Philippians 3:13-16
Do you SEE and behold what God is REVEALING by the SPIRIT? (1 Corinthians 2:9-10)
Pray the Father of Glory, the Father of Risen Christ Jesus, to give you a Spirit of Wisdom coming down from the Throne; REVELATION of the Knowledge of God and his glory of Christ; enlightened Understanding of your redeemed, enlightened heart eyes; pure Counsel to KNOW your calling and your inheritance IN CHRIST and CHRIST in you according to His Might, the powerful working of God in us who truly BELIEVE, the immeasurable greatness of fire POWER of Holy Spirit, by God resurrecting Jesus and giving Him ALL rule and reign and dominion and power and authority in heaven AND on earth IN HIS TRUE CHURCH, in HIS one Body, in His Bride (not the false church or counterfeit church), giving HIS Bride HIS Name above ALL names in heaven AND on earth in this age now and is to come; putting ALL things under HIS FEET and made Him the HEAD over all things for the True Church, HIS Body, HIS Bride whom Christ fills with all of HIMSELF (Ephesians 1:17-23).
Apart from Christ is the old heaven and earth and polluted seas of unclean spirits, mindsets, and forms; for IN CHRIST nothing unclean can enter, nothing abominable or false can enter (Revelation 21:27); nothing accursed, dark, or evil can enter (22:3), but only those washed in the pure perfect holy BLOOD of the Lamb of God can enter (22:14); washed by the pure Blood, Water and Spirit (1 John 5:4-12; Ephesians 5:23-32) of the Bridegroom, King of kings and Lord of lords, Risen, Glorified Christ Jesus!
(a current example of the false church, the harlot who is riding the beast, listening to the false prophets of media, arts, entertainment industry, false governments, false religions, false education, fallen families, fallen corporations of dark, fallen, current mystery babylon: is described on this video about a fallen “star” who calls herself a “church girl” who admits she is a “whore” a “thot” that I would have never known means “that ho (whore; harlot) over there” if I hadn’t watched the video: https://youtu.be/7cmMy0P0Tco)
The True Bride abides in Christ, in HIS one Body and one Spirit, and Christ abides in her NOT the harlot or the foolish virgins who refuse the Holy Spirit and fire and oil and eyes to see, partaking of the glory (John 17:22-23) of Risen Ascended Glorified Christ Jesus on the Throne with the Father of Glory and when we CONQUER we are granted to be seated WITH CHRIST (Revelation 3:21; Ephesians 2:6) so we can be AS HE NOW IS in the world (1 John 4:17b); awakened, arising and shining and going about proclaiming His Message; the Good News; His Words that abide forever; Christ Who abides forever; the NHONE where righteousness dwells that abides forever in Christ!
“Truly I say to you, THIS GENERATION will not pass away till all these things take place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My WORDS will not pass away” ~Jesus in Matthew 24:34-35
John saw it, and Saul/Paul saw what Isaiah saw and prophesied: the glory of Risen Christ. Behold the glory of the Lord and be changing, transforming, glory to glory, by the Lord who is the SPIRIT; not blinded and veiled by the god of this world (2 Cor 3:12-18 and 4:1-7; John 12:38-41; Acts 26:18; Revelation 1:12-18).
“Born anew, not of perishable seeds but the imperishable Seeds of the Words of Jesus; through the Living Active ABIDING Words of God…the Word of the Lord abides FOREVER…Good News!” 1 Peter 1:22-25
IF you abide IN CHRIST and HIS WORDS abide in you, ask and receive to give glory to God our Father (John 15:7).
“It is finished!”
“It is done!”
“Behold, I make all things new!”
“I am the Alpha and Omega, says the Lord God, Who IS and who was and who is to come” ~Risen Ascended Glorified Christ Jesus in Revelation 1:8, 4:8, 5:5-8,12-14, 7:17, 11:15, 12:10, 14:7, 15:3-4, 16:15, 19:1-16, 20:6, 21:1-27, 22:1-20).
The grace of the Lord is WITH all the saints (Revelation 22:21). “Surely, I am coming soon” (22:20).
“If, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus the Christ” Romans 5:17
The Promise of the Lord’s Coming
“This is now the second letter that I have written to you, beloved [Bride], and in both of them I have aroused your sincere mind by way of reminder; that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles. First of all you must understand this, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own passions and saying, “Where is the Promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things have continued as they were from the beginning of creation.” They deliberately ignore this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago, and an earth formed out of water and by means of water, through which the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same Word the heavens and earth that now exist have been stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
But do not ignore this one fact, beloved [Bride], that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow about his promise as some count slowness, but is forbearing toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief [NOT for the Bride 1 Thessalonians 5:1-24; Revelation 16:15], and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire! But according to his PROMISE wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells [already IN CHRIST and CHRIST in His Bride, His beloveds in HIS Body with HIS Spirit]. Therefore, beloved [Bride] since you wait for these [still asleep or dead], be zealous to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.[Peace is found only IN CHRIST; world peace will be sudden tribulation] And count the forbearance of our Lord as salvation…You therefore, beloved [Bride], KNOWING this beforehand, beware lest you be carried away with the error of lawless men and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen” 2 Peter 3:1-18
Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ will give you the light of His glory (Ephesians 5:14)
Arise and shine with the light and glory of Risen Christ (Isaiah 60:1-2).
Arise, go proclaim the Message of Jesus and His Kingdom, Power, and Glory of God to all of the current mystery babylon (Jonah 3:2; Revelation 18:1-24); filled with all the fruit of Christ Light (Ephesians 5:9), the fruit of the Spirit of Christ (Galatians 5:22), filled with ALL the fruits of righteousness (Philippians 1:11), and twelve kinds of fruits and healing of Risen Glorified Jesus (Revelation 22:2); doing the works of Jesus and greater works since He returned to God our Abba Father and sent you the Holy Spirit (John 14:12-19).
“In that day you will KNOW that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you” ~Jesus in John 14:20
“The Words I speak to you make you clean. Abide in Me, and I in you” ~Jesus in John 15:3-4
