      When you are in a position of power, practice restraint. (Matthew 5:5)
31. Do not seek the flattery of men. Do not seek praise from men. Avoid these 
     things. These will be used to inflate your ego and manipulate your pride. When 
     people speak evil against you falsely and bear false witness, know that you are 
     doing well. When everyone is complimenting you and praising you with empty 
     flattery, beware – you may have been led astray. (Matthew 5:11-12) (Luke 6:26)

    Brother Jan,
    I thank our Lord and savior Jesus Christ for allowing me to find your messages and advices on You tube. It’s a really blessing to get to know Christ and Christ to know you. Once you get into that relationship with Jesus everything becomes now clear to you and then you can open the Bible and understand the scriptures. Your videos have changed life of many people, my friend. I made sure that every christian I know get your messages. Born in Africa where there is a scarcity of word of God, now living in Canada, people like you and others have profoundly shaped my life in the right direction.
    May Jesus bless you abundantly
