Alleluia!  For the 'will of God' is fulfilled and the 'kingdom of God' is come!  For it is written: Psalms 149:1-9 and Isaiah 9:2, 6-7!

    For it is written:

II Timothy 3:14 But continue thou in the *things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou has learned them;    I Corinthians 2:1-16,     specifically verses 9-13 15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

 17 That the *man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.                               Isaiah 32:1, 17-18; St. Matthew 19:28; St. John 1:12; St. John 3:1-8; Romans 8:28-29; Titus 3:4; and Revelation 1:1-6

I Peter 2:1-15, verse 15, For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: and verse 16.

  • The will of God is proven by the word of my testimony that is according to the law of God and the standard set up by God himself, according to Isaiah 49:22-26; Micah 4:1-13, specifically verses 1-10; Micah 5:1-4; and II Corinthians 10:1-7, 12-14, 17-18! 

  • For this reason, the law of God instructs all people, nations and languages to pay now tribute to whom tribute is due, custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour, according to Romans 13:1-7, specifically verses 6-7.  


For it is written:

I Chronicles 29:10 Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation: and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father, for ever and ever.
 11 Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.
 12 Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great, and to give strength unto *all.          St. John 17:12-26; Romans 11:25-26, as in reference to Romans 9:1-33 and Romans 10:1-4
 13 Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name. 

Romans 16:25-27 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel, and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery, which was kept secret since the world began, But now is made manifest, and by the scriptures of the prophets, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever Amen.

As the kingdom of God is come and the will of God is done in earth, as it is in heaven, according to St. Matthew 6:9-13, specifically verses 10 and 13; St. John 6:39-40; and, with an emphasis on II Corinthians 4:1-7, specifically verse 6, as in reference to Romans 16:26, the "commandment" stated above.  Both are fulfilled in me, Jacquetta Trenice Bounds, called by the name of the Lord, as in Zion and The LORD our Righteousness, according to Psalms 87:5; Psalms 132:13-18; Jeremiah 33:14-16, specifically verse 16; and St. Matthew 23:39in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, according to St. Matthew 13:11-17; St. Matthew 16:27-28, (important note, see verses 1-4 and St. Matthew 12:39-42); St. Matthew 24:3-5,11-14, 22-28, 30-31, (specifically note verses 27 and 28)St. Mark 8:38; St. Mark 9:1; St. Luke 9:22-27; St. Luke 17:20-37, (in reference to verse 37, note Romans 8:10); I Corinthians 4:1-20, especially note verses 19-20; Corinthians 2:1-16, specifically verses 1-5; and II Corinthians 4:1-7, specifically verse 6, in this way, proven to be a fact 1) by the word of my testimony of light that literally shined in my heart, as within the hearts of the holy apostles, according to II Corinthian 4:1-18, specifically verse 6.  As it is written, For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ, being the testimony of Christ confirmed in me, according to Romans 2:28-29; Romans 3:1-4; and I Corinthians 1:1-31, specifically verse 6, knowing, through experience, my election of God and the gospel of Christ that came not to me in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; and 2) thereby, confirmed and interpreted by the holy scriptures, the inspired word of truth, according to Isaiah 44:23-28, specifically verses 24-26 and II Thessalonians 1:4-10, specifically verses 4-5; and II Timothy 2:15, as in reference to Isaiah 61:1-11, specifically verse 8, as shown below;

Isaiah 61:1-8 For I the LORD love judgment, I hate robbery for burnt offering; and I will direct their work in truth, and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.

 9 And their seed shall be known among the Gentles, and their offspring among the people: all that see them shall acknowledge them, that they are the seed which the LORD hath blessed.

The will of God is fulfilled and come to pass in me, being the remnant of Israel and manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ, according to Micah 4:1-13, specifically verse 7; Micah 5:1-4; Romans 9:1-33, specifically verses 26-29, (note Romans 10:1-4); Romans 11:1-12; and II Corinthians 3:1-6, as I have learned by the holy scriptures, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, (that is, the spiritual things that I experienced and sensed within my body, comparing them with spiritual, being the holy scriptures, according to St. John 3:1-13, specifically verses 3-7,11-13; St. John 5:20-21; St. John 6:36; I Corinthians 2:1-16; I Corinthians 15:20-28, 34-52, especially note verse 47; and Hebrews 5:5-14, specifically verses 9-14.  Due to these spiritual things I've experienced within me, I know, through experience, and have learned by the holy scriptures that the Lord Jesus Christ has given me a new name when I received the Holy Ghost, being Zion and The LORD our righteousness, as with Christ the Lord, according to Acts 2:29-36, and the holy apostles of Christ, according to Jeremiah 23:6, (note verses 1-5); Jeremiah 33:16, (note verses 14-15); Psalms 87:5, (as in reference to Numbers 16:1-7);Psalms 132:13-18; Acts 10:38-42; I Corinthians 4:1-20; II Corinthians 3:1-6; II Corinthians 4:1-15; II Timothy 2:15; and Revelation 2:17; Revelation 17:14, 17-18.  Regarding the will of God, of which I am  instructed by the holy scriptures to "prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God":

It is written:

Romans 12: 1 I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

As a result of the fulfillment of the will of God in me, according to St. John 6:39-40 and Romans 12:1-2, now altogether as one, according to St. John 17:1-26, specifically verses 13-26 and Ephesians chapters 1-3, we, the saints, the people of the saints of the most High, according to Daniel 7: 18, 22, 25-27; Romans 1:3-7, 15-16 Romans 8:27-31; and Ephesians 4:4-13, being the church, according to Hebrews 8:1-13, specifically verses 1-2 and I Corinthians 3:9,16-20, the body of Christ, according to I Corinthians 12:12-27, the whole family in heaven and earth, have overcome and taken the kingdom, and possess the kingdom for ever, even for ever and ever, according to Daniel 7:9-14, 18, 21-22, 25-27; St. John 17:1-26, specifically verses 13-26; Romans 8:28-39, specifically verses 36-39; Ephesians 3:1-20, specifically verses 15; and Jude 14-15; Revelation 12:1-17, specifically verses 10-11, as according to I Thessalonians 4:15-17!  This is our victory, the will of God come to pass in us! Unmistakably and undeniably, the word of God, being the holy scriptures, is the written, official document that plainly states the 'will of God', that we have inherited ALL THINGS, EVEN MEN, according to I Corinthians 3:11-23; II Timothy 2:15; II Timothy 3:14-17; and Revelation 21:5-7.  For God himself shows who are his, and who is holy, and whom he hath chosen and caused to come near him, according to Numbers 16:1-7!  And the proof is the word of my testimony, as earlier stated, being the testimony of Christ confirmed in me, according to I Corinthians 1:6!

For it is written,

St. John 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
 12 But as many as received him, *to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:                          II Timothy 1:7-11
 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
 14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Revelation 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.  And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
 6 And he said unto me, It is done.  I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.  I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
 7  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

For the word of God is come to pass in me and my children and their seed, from generation to generation, manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ, according to I Corinthians 3:1-6; and, again, II Timothy 2:15 and II Timothy 3:14-17. For it is come to pass, the kingdom of God has been given to us, according to Isaiah 9:2, 6-7, a nation bringing forth the fruits of the Holy Ghost, being the fruits of the Spirit from the tree of life within me, according to Matthew 21:33-44, specifically verse 43 and Revelation 22:2, such as my testimonies, being the light and the power of God, the love of God, the peace o God, the joy of God, the living waters of God, in which I was born again and washed clean, just to name a few, twelve (12) altogether.  See more on the 'Testimonies' page, including 'The Table of Contents' of 'The Lamb's Book of Life, I was inspired to write and testify of the Lord Jesus Christ and the Almighty God himself, according to Matthew 5:8, as according to St. John 14:21 and St. John 16:25.

For it is written:

Daniel 9:27 And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be *given to the people of the saints of the most High whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.   Matthew 21:33-44, specifically 43

Revelation 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength  and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

On a Sunday morning, in the early Spring of 1977, was the time in which I experienced a great and bright, shining light in my heart and soul, according to II Corinthians 4:6 and Revelation 22:16, as I was seeking after him diligently with my whole heart, according to Hebrews 11:6!  On this same date, I experienced the resurrection of the Spirit of God and of Christ lifting me up from within my body, feeling as a heavenly and celestial being, according to I Corinthians chapter 15, specifically verses 34-52 and Ephesians 1:23.  As a result, the Holy Ghost taught me this heavenly and holy occurrence was the miraculous sign of the last day of salvation, comparing spiritual things with spiritual, according to Psalms 87:5; Isaiah 9:18, 20Micah 4:1-10, specifically verse 7; I Corinthians 2:1-16, specifically verses 9-13, in which he limited a certain day, according to Hebrews 3:7-13, 15-19; Hebrews 4:1-12, 16, specifically verse 7; II Peter 3:1-10.  In reference to II Peter 3:10, note II Corinthians 4:1-7, specifically verse 3 and I Peter 2:7-8.  For it is written, St. Matthew 13:11-17; St. Matthew 16:27-28, (important note, see verses 1-4 and St. Matthew 12:39-42); St. Matthew 24:3-5, 11-14, 22-28, 30-31, (specifically note verses 27 and 28)St. Mark 8:38; St. Mark 9:1; St. Luke 9:22-27; St. I Corinthians 4:1-20, especially note verses 19-20, to name a few.

Again, God's invitation of salvation through the sacrifice of his beloved Son was limited a certain day, according to the holy scriptures, as mentioned above, according to the holy scriptures and according to the word of my testimony, confirmed and interpreted by the holy scriptures, being the word of truth / word of God, according to Isaiah 49:22-26, receiving the end of my faith, as within the holy apostles, according to I Peter 1:9-13, as in reference to Romans 16:25-27, the last day of salvation occurred on a Sunday in the year 1977, during this time, only those who believed entered in, in reference to St. John 6:39-40; St. Matthew 24:27-28, 30-31, 37-51, in reference to verse 28, note Luke 17:37; Hebrews 4:1-7; I Thessalonians 4:14-17; and, again, according to II Peter 31-10.

 10 *For precept must be upon precept,  precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:        verse 9; II Timothy 2:15
 11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people.
 12 *To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing; yet they would not hear.   Isaiah 30:1-16, specifically verses 1, 16-17
 13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken, and snared, and taken.
 14 Wherefore hear the word of the
LORD, ye scornful men, that rule this people which is in Jerusalem.
 15 Because ye have said, We have made a covenant with death, and with hell are we at agreement; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us: for we have made lies our refuge, and under falshood have we hid ourselves:
 16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, *Behold, I lay in Zion for a foundation a stone, a tried stone, a precious corner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.   
 17 Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding place. 
 
18 And your covenant  with death shall be disannulled,  and your agreement with hell shall not stand; when the overflowing scourge shall pass through, then ye shall be trodden down by it.
 21 For the LORD shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strannge act.
 22 Now therefore be ye not mockers, lest your bands be made strong: for I have heard from the Lord of GOD of hosts a consumption, even determined upon the whole earth.
 23 Give ye ear, and hear my voice; hearken, and hear my speech.  

So, the undeniable truth is, the Lord Jesus Christ is now returned in me, according to the testimony of Christ confirmed in me, in reference to I Corinthians 1:6, (as in reference to verses 7-31 and I Corinthians 2:1-16), to also reprove, meaning convince and convict, the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment, according to Isaiah 9:2, 6-7 and St. John 16:7-11. My testimonies are the heavenly proof of spiritual things, according to I Corinthians 2:1-16, published in part and testified of on this website, particularly 'Testimonies' page, as in reference to Romans 16:25-27.  For it is written: Romans 9:1-33; Romans 10:1-4 and Ephesians chapter 3, specifically verses 9-12!  For the judgment of God is come!  It is also written, Isaiah 54:13-17; St. John 5:36-47; Romans 2:28-29; Romans 3:1-4; and I Corinthians 15:20-28, 34-52, especially note verses 34 and 47!

Therefore, now is the time for all flesh to serve, obey, and fear the Lord God Almighty within us, according to Isaiah 31:9; Isaiah 33:13-14; Daniel 7:9-14, 18, 21-27; Romans 13:1-7; and Revelation 2:26-28!  For all things are ours, we, my adult children (my seed and offspring), according to Isaiah 44:3 and Hebrews 8:1-13, specifically verse 11, and me called by the name of the Lord, according to Micah 4:5 and Matthew 23:39.

To be clear and for the record, it is important for all people to understand the difference between we who are truly holy, chosen, called and elected of God, of whom are my sons, Ian and Phillip, and me, proven by the word of my testimony that is come to pass within me, again, not in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance, contrary to the false witness who speaks lies.  That is, the false witness speak the word of God presumptuously, because the word of God is not come to pass in them, according to Deuteronomy 18:22.  These Christ himself warned as being false Christ’s and false prophets that deceive many and who come in sheep’s clothing.  For it is written, Deuteronomy 18:15-22; St. Matthew 7:15-23, (note verses 13-14); St. Matthew 24:5, 11 and St. John 10:7-16.  For it is written, St. Matthew 26:31 and St. Luke 16:14-16.

Do read the uploaded PDF below of the 'Mission Statement' with my previous address, 1053 W. Spruce Street, Compton, CA 90220, stated on the letterhead:

 

For it is proven to be true, JESUS CHRIST IS LORD! As I have witnessed God and Christ the Lord manifest in my flesh, as witnessed by the holy apostles, according to I Timothy 3:16!  As the Lord Jesus Christ has truly come alive the second time manifest and revealed within my flesh, according to John chapters 14 and 16 and Hebrews 9:28, in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, in reference to I Corinthians chapters 1 and 2 and I Corinthians chapter 15, as I have declared and testified of briefly at this website and, in greater detail, "The Lamb's Book of Life" of whom God Almighty, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Ghost, together as one, inspired me to write.
 
For it is written:

Romans 13:1 LET every soul be subject unto the *higher powers.  For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.                                                                                                                                           Revelation 2:26-28;

 2 Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation.
 
 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil.  Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praised of the same.
 
 4 For he is the minister of God to thee for good.  But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid: for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.
 
 5 Wherefore ye must needs be subject, not only for wrath, but also for conscience sake.
 
 6 For for this cause pay ye tribute also: for they are God's ministers, attending continually upon this very thing.

I Corinthians 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon.  But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.
 
11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
 
12 Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble;
 
13 Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.
 
14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward.
 
15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
 
 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
 
 17 If any an defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
 
 18 Let no man deceive himself.  If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
 
 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.  For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

 20 And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.
 
           21 Therefore let no man glory in men.  For all things are yours:
 
           22 *Whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things
           present, or things to come; all are yours;              Matthew 19:30; Luke 1:45-53;
           Romans 8:32

           23 And ye are Christ's and Christ is God's.

6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

  7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from hence forth even  for ever.  The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.



Isaiah 44:1-5 and verse 6 Thus saith the Lord the King of Israel, and his redeemer the Lord of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God.

     7 And who, as I, shall call, and shall declare it, and set it in order for me, since I appointed the ancient people? And the things that are coming, and shall come, let them shew unto them.
  
  

    8 Fear ye not, neither be afraid: have not I told thee from that time, and have declared it?  Ye are even my witnesses.  Is there a God beside me? Yea, there is no God; I know not any.

        9 They that make a graven image are all of them vanity; and their delectable things shall not profit; and they are their own witnesses; they see not, nor know, that they may be ashamed.  

      10 Who hath formed a god, or molten a graven image that is profitable for nothing? 

 
   11 Behold, all his fellows shall be ashamed: and the workmen, they are of men:  let them all be gathered together, let them stand up; yet they shall fear, and they shall be ashamed together.
