Where We Aren't - Pete Garcia - http://www.omegaletter.com/articles/articles.asp?ArticleID=8721
I have seen the God-given task with which the sons of men are to be occupied. He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:10-11
From the first century until 20th, there wasn't a whole lot of movement going on in God's prophetic long range calendar. Similar to the 'silent years' between the Old Testament and the New, we had been in an extended 'silent period' since Jerusalem fell to the Romans in AD70. During that time, kingdoms and empires came and went, Christianity waxed and waned across the world, and technology finally liberated man from being limited to the speed of horse. But in regards to where we are on God's calendar, no one really knew where we were exactly, that is, until 1948.
The two dominant Eschatology's that existed from the 3rd century until the 19th, were Amillennialism, and Historic Premillennialism (now called the Post Tribulation view). The former, stifled any potential understanding of God's prophetic word, by allegorizing everything into a wispy, unknown sphere of speculation. The latter, attempted to label every aberrant leader and/or movement of their day, as 'The Beast'.
Prior to the Dispensationalist movement of the early 19th century, about as close as anyone came to really grasping where we were, was Sir Isaac Newton, and Archbishop Ussher. These two men did the yeoman's load of the work digging through ancient secular historical documents, and comparing them to what Scripture said. By this, Ussher figured out that creation happened on/about 4004 BC or year 1 Anno Mundi (AM counts from creation forward). Although not perfect in their findings, they did give us a pretty good idea of where we were with the information they had available to them at the time.
The reason it was difficult to gauge where we were on God's calendar from the 1stcentury until the 20th, was because the only nation God ever used as His 'geo-political' time-piece, Israel, hadn't been a nation for 1,878 years. (See Daniel 2, 9) The Dispensationalists came to understand that the Jewish nation would HAVE to be reinserted onto the world's stage again, because that is the conclusion God's word comes too if taken at face value. Isaiah 2, 11; Jeremiah 30; Ezekiel 37-39; Amos 9; Zech. 12-14 all speak to Israel existing again as a nation, for a second time, in the last days.
By the late 19th century (late 1880's onward), men like Sir Robert Anderson, Cyrus Scofield, and Clarence Larkin began to lay out a clearer understanding of where we were, and what needed to transpire in the not too distant future. While critics like to lay charges against these men for various issues, all three of them were correct in understanding decades before it happened, that Israel would have to become a nation again, and thus it did, in 1948.
They understood that the first time Israel (Judah and Israel) went into Diaspora was when the Assyrians and Babylonians conquered them. (7th and 6th Century's BC respectively) Yet, they were regathered in the 5th Century BC back to their homeland by the Persians. The second diaspora began in AD70 when the Romans sacked Jerusalem. The second regathering if you will, would not occur until 1948, almost two millennia later.
Without Israel back in her land as a nation, there was no frame of reference by which to base God's timeline against. God's entire timeline centered on a 490 year cycle which was measured when Israel was in covenant with God. Dr. E.W. Bullinger did the yeoman's work on trying to understand how numbers and time figured into Scripture. (This by the way, is not an endorsement of everything E.W. Bullinger did, taught, or believed, but he was very accurate on certain things) He came up with the following;
The Four Great Jubilee Redemption Cycles (70 Sabbatical Years)
Began with the decree by Persian King Artaxerxes to Nehemiah to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, and stopped at the 483 year with the death of Christ on the cross. (see Nehemiah 2)
With the death of Israel's true Messiah by her own decree (Matt. 27:23-26), Israel inadvertently postponed their own redemption by seven years. This final seven years, also known as; the Day of the Lord, Daniel's 70th Week, and the time of Jacob's Trouble, and it is still owed to God.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Eph. 6:12
At the heart of them, World Wars I and II were not simply a geo-political wars waged over money, land, or power. The Zionist movement in the 1890's triggered WWI because Satan did not want the Jews repatriating to what was then called Palestine. But at the end of the Great War, the Ottoman's Turk's control over the Middle East was fractured, granting the victors (Great Britain and France) the custodial rights of redistributing the former Ottoman Empire territories back to the various tribal groups and peoples which is how the Balfour Declaration was decreed.
WWII wasn't just about the 'good guys vs. the bad guys', or creating a '1,000 year Reich'. It wasn't even about Nazism. These may have all been by-products of the rise of Nazi Germany, but at the heart of it, stood one man, Adolph Hitler. He had survived WWI, witnessed the humiliating events that transpired in the Weimar Republic's demise. He had seen the bloody Bolshevik Revolution, which traded the Russian Czars for the Marxist's Politburo. (Karl Marx was Jewish). The young Hitler may not have even understood that his hatred of the Jews went beyond even the political and ethnic differences he had with them, but was spurred on by a much older, sinister force at work in the unseen world. Hitler's heart had begun to be turned, being twisted and hardened by a seething darkness that stemmed from the father of lies himself, Satan.
Satan's hatred doesn't simply exist because of the Abrahamic covenant, or even that Christ came from the tribe of Judah. I mean, what's done is done and he knows he can't go back and undo that. But Satan thinks by destroying the Jews, he can postpone his inevitable future because he knows everything hinges on them becoming a nation again...hence the repeated expulsions them from every country they'd ever settled in. And if he can't do that, he would wipe them out as a people. (See Rev. 12)
At the end of WWII, the Allied Powers uncovered that Hitler's agenda went far beyond military hunger, when they began discovering the various concentration camps spread throughout Europe. But by this point, the victors were simply trying to grasp with the depth and breadth of the genocide that had taken place under their noses.
But despite Satan's best efforts, the Jews survived WWII and the Holocaust, thus triggering a new set of dominos to start falling into place. For instance;
The inertial navigation system uses deviations to generate corrective commands to drive the system from a position where it is, to a position where it isn't. Arriving at the position where it wasn't, it now is. Consequently, the position where it is, is now the position where it wasn't and so it follows that the position where it was, is now the position where it isn't. (ARINC 561 Manual August 1976)
In layman's terms, it is a navigation system that figures out where it is, by movement, and then predicts where it will be, based off of where it isn't. Make sense? Another way to think about it is, if this object never moved, it would have no frame of reference to fix itself on. Ergo, the greatest weakness of the inertial navigation system is at its beginning. But once it starts moving, it (said object) can figure out where it is relatively quickly. So where it was, will soon be the position where it isn't. Think on that for a second.
How and when does God's prophetic plans, marry up with the geo-political reality we are living in? Just as the 'silent years' between the Old and New Testaments were void of any true prophets proclaiming God's truth to the world, these years were NOT absent of God's plans being enacted through the Gentile world to bring about what had to come to pass, in order to fulfill previous prophecies already foretold. For example, we know historically that in what we call the 'silent years', Nebuchadnezzar's multi-metallic statue (see Daniel 2) representing the Gentile world powers, had to play out, and they did.
Where we aren't, is where we used to be, that is, before Israel was rebirthed as a nation again. This may also be how we reconcile what Jesus said about 'no man knows the day or the hour', with Paul's statement that we (watching believers) would not be caught by surprise by that day, because we'd recognize the season of our Lord's return. (1 Thess. 5:1-10)
While I can't tell you where exactly we are, other than to say we are at the very end of the current age we live in, (Luke 21:24) I can tell you where we aren't...
Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." Luke 21:28
Israel Fears Russia Seeking To Change Rules Of The Game In Syria - By Benjamin Kerstein - http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=2581
Veteran Israeli analysts believe President Vladimir Putin is exploiting the downing of a Russian plane in order to change the rules of the game in Syria, and that the US has abandoned Israel on the issue of Iranian entrenchment in the war-torn country. Last week, Israel presented evidence to the Russian army that the plane in question was in fact downed by Syrian forces, but Russia later rejected the claim and blamed the Jewish state for the loss. According to analyst Amir Bohbot, Putin is now using the incident to shore up his damaged prestige as a result of recent Israeli actions against Iran in Syria. "As senior officials think," he wrote at the Hebrew news website Walla, "Putin's tragic event has become a ripe fruit and he will leverage it to impose new rules of the game, such as ... much earlier warning systems, restrictions on traffic routes that will reduce the IDF's freedom of action on the sea and in the air," and to gain concessions from Israel and the US. As a result, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, "will be required to fight not for Israel's honor but for the freedom of action of the Israeli Air Force and the ability to stand up for its security interests. ... Any result other than maintaining the IDF's freedom of action will be considered a failure." Iran, said Bohbot, has yet to take advantage of the current tensions between Russia and Israel, "but time is pressing and every day in the Middle East is critical." The Russians, for their part, are playing for time: "They are in no hurry and according to Kremlin experts, they will rip Israel well until they make a final decision on how to act." Some Israeli sources are warning that Putin may continue to smile at Netanyahu, while at the same time directing his defense ministry to close Syrian air space against all foreign aircraft, not just Israeli warplanes. This would shut down Israel's air campaign for eradicating Iran's military grip on Syria - or bring it in conflict with Russian forces. This would happen if the US and Israel decided for their part, to put Putin's directive to the test. Therefore, just as Russia's air force is no doubt planning its next steps in Syria, so too are the US and Israel. Longtime Israeli analyst Ehud Yaari also chimed in, writing for Israel's Channel 2: "From the US perspective, we hear a lot of talk from President Trump and sources around him about their determination to curb Iranian activity and subversion in the region." This, however, is just talk, and has not resulted in meaningful action, said Yaari. "In practical terms, the US has left Israel alone to deal with Iran's dangerous actions in Syria and to stand and deal alone with the presence of the Russian air force there," he said.
We Can See It - By Daymond Duck -
Two weeks ago, I wrote an article titled "Jacob's Sheep."
A friend informed me that Day of Discovery ministries produced a great video a few years ago called "Bethlehem: Beyond the Christmas Story."
It is about the Tower of the Flock, and it can be viewed free by downloading a free app at https://dod.org/programs/bethlehem-beyond-the-christmas-story/.
It is 23 minutes long, narrated by Jimmy DeYoung; it is about the birth of Jesus, and it depicts shepherds in the field with sheep that look similar to Jacob's Sheep in pictures that have been in the news.
The disciples asked Jesus, "What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the age?" (Matt. 24:3).
Among other things, He said, "Now learn a parable of the fig tree (a symbol of Israel; Hos. 9:10; Jer. 24:1-10); When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors" (Matt. 24:32-35).
I believe the convergence of all of the signs is the greatest sign, and just below that is the establishment and miraculous growth of Israel.
This week, I read an article by Isi Leibler dated Sept. 9, 2018, titled 5779: A New Year of Hope (wordfromjerusalem.com).
Here are some facts worth noting:
In 1948, Israel became a nation again.
In 1967, Israel captured East Jerusalem and the West Bank, including the Temple Mount. Israel soon annexed East Jerusalem and the West Bank. The Fig Tree was growing.
In 2018, the U.S. moved its embassy to Jerusalem.
In the 70 years between 1948 and 2018, Israel's population grew from about 800,000 people to more than 8 million people.
Israel went from being a wasteland to growing two to three crops a year.
Israel went from being a poverty-stricken nation to being one of the most prosperous nations on earth.
Israel went from being a nation with little technology to being one of the most high-tech nations on earth.
Israel went from having virtually no factories to having more start-ups per capita than any nation on earth.
Israel went from having virtually no jobs to having one of the lowest unemployment rates on earth.
Israel went from very little water to desalination plants that are irrigating crops in the desert.
Israel went from importing natural gas to exporting natural gas.
Israel went from two crop-duster airplanes to one of the greatest air forces on earth.
Israel went from virtually no military to one of the greatest militaries on earth.
A miracle has occurred in the Promised Land in our lifetime.
The Roman dispersion is over.
The fig tree is young and putting forth leaves.
Look up! Lift up your heads! The return of Jesus is near.
On Sept. 13, 2018, it was reported that the U.S. is opposing the construction of a pipeline from Russia to Germany that would also supply the EU.
Pres. Trump wants the EU to start buying natural gas from Israel.
Doing so would have a negative impact on Russia's economy and increase Russia's desire to seize Israel's wealth.
Last week, interest rates in Turkey went up to 24%, and that will help increase Turkey's desire to seize Israel's wealth.
I believe the Antichrist will rise to power in the EU and go forth "conquering and to conquer" (Dan. 9:26; Rev. 6:1-2).
He will need a strong military to do that.
In a speech on Sept. 11, 2018, Jean-Claude Junker, chief executive of the EU, criticized Pres. Trump for withdrawing from globalist agreements.
He said, "The EU must flex its muscles as a world power;" "The time has come for EU sovereignty;" "The EU should move ahead with the establishment of a military that is not dependent upon the U.S.," etc.
Another article said the EU has decided to rapidly increase the size of its military by 700%.
Bible prophecy is being fulfilled, and we can see it.

If You Build it, He Will Come - A.V. Rauf -
In the late 1980's, there was a movie about an Iowa corn farmer who hears a voice telling him: "If you build it, he will come." He interprets this as an instruction to build a baseball diamond in his fields. As he takes heed to this instruction, Shoeless Joe Jackson and other dead baseball players emerge from the cornfields to play baseball. The film went on to be a successful one representing one of North America's famous pastimes, which is baseball.
Let's fast forward to now and look at this phrase from a Biblical perspective. There has been a common saying among Jewish Rabbis that was recently modified. It was originally believed by many Jewish Rabbis that "...when the Meshiach will come, the temple will be built!" This of course is in reference to the rebuilding of a third temple in Israel.
The first temple built in Jerusalem was a crowning achievement of King Solomon during his reign as the King of Israel. He was responsible for the construction of the magnificent Temple in the capital city of ancient Israel, which was Jerusalem. An interesting observation to make here is that when the Temple was completed, Solomon inaugurated it with prayer and sacrifice and even invited non-Jews to come and pray there. He urged God to pay particular heed to their prayers as well.
1 Kings 8:43-Hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and do according to all that the stranger calleth to thee for: that all people of the earth may know thy name, to fear thee, as do thy people Israel; and that they may know that this house, which I have builded, is called by thy name.
The first temple was ultimately destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BC,
The second temple was eventually built some seventy years later due to an "Aaliyah," of sorts that was led by the prophets Ezra and Nehemiah. The Second Temple was built on the same site.
Ezra 3:1-11-And when the seventh month was come, and the children of Israel were in the cities, the people gathered themselves together as one man to Jerusalem. 2 Then stood up Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren the priests, and Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and his brethren, and builded the altar of the God of Israel, to offer burnt offerings thereon, as it is written in the law of Moses the man of God. 3 And they set the altar upon his bases; for fear was upon them because of the people of those countries: and they offered burnt offerings thereon unto the Lord, even burnt offerings morning and evening. 4 They kept also the feast of tabernacles, as it is written, and offered the daily burnt offerings by number, according to the custom, as the duty of every day required; 5 And afterward offered the continual burnt offering, both of the new moons, and of all the set feasts of the Lord that were consecrated, and of every one that willingly offered a freewill offering unto the Lord. 6 From the first day of the seventh month began they to offer burnt offerings unto the Lord. But the foundation of the temple of the Lord was not yet laid. 7 They gave money also unto the masons, and to the carpenters; and meat, and drink, and oil, unto them of Zidon, and to them of Tyre, to bring cedar trees from Lebanon to the sea of Joppa, according to the grant that they had of Cyrus king of Persia. 8 Now in the second year of their coming unto the house of God at Jerusalem, in the second month, began Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, and Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and the remnant of their brethren the priests and the Levites, and all they that were come out of the captivity unto Jerusalem; and appointed the Levites, from twenty years old and upward, to set forward the work of the house of the Lord. 9 Then stood Jeshua with his sons and his brethren, Kadmiel and his sons, the sons of Judah, together, to set forward the workmen in the house of God: the sons of Henadad, with their sons and their brethren the Levites. 10 And when the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the Lord, they set the priests in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites the sons of Asaph with cymbals, to praise the Lord, after the ordinance of David king of Israel. 11 And they sang together by course in praising and giving thanks unto the Lord; because he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever toward Israel. And all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.
During the first century B.C. Herod, the Roman appointed head of Judea, made substantial modifications to the Temple and the surrounding mountain, expanding the Temple. The Second Temple, however, met the same fate as the first and was destroyed by theRomans in 70 A.D.
To this very day, Orthodox Jews pray three times a day for the Temple's restoration. The original phrase mentioned earlier has now been changed to "...when the temple will be rebuilt, then Meshiach will come!"
Over the centuries, the Muslims who eventually took control of Jerusalem built two mosques on the Temple Mount, the site of the two Jewish Temples. Since any attempt to level these mosques would lead to an international Muslim holy war against Israel, the Temple cannot be rebuilt in the foreseeable future.
This is all about to change. Look at this video which has been circulating through mainstream Israel and viewed by many:
The real question is who will this person be that will allow for the construction of the Temple. the Bible clearly tells us who:
Daniel 9:27- And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Satan has always wanted to be worshipped and has always wanted Jerusalem. Notice the following:
Isaiah 14:12-14 -How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.
So where on earth is mount of the congregation in the sides of the north? I'm glad you asked.
Psalms 48:1-2-Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God, in the mountain of his holiness.2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
The Great King being referred to is none other the King David. Mount Zion is none other then the city of Jerusalem. The term Mount Zion has been used in the Bible first for the City of David and later, for the Temple Mount.
2 Samuel 5:4-7-David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years. 5 In Hebron he reigned over Judah seven years and six months: and in Jerusalem he reigned thirty and three years over all Israel and Judah.6 And the king and his men went to Jerusalem unto the Jebusites, the inhabitants of the land: which spake unto David, saying, Except thou take away the blind and the lame, thou shalt not come in hither: thinking, David cannot come in hither.7 Nevertheless David took the strong hold of Zion: the same is the city of David.
You ever wonder why there was such an uproar when President Trump declared that the U.S. Embassy was to be moved to Jerusalem and that Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel.
The truth of the matter here is that we are fast approaching the Time of Jacob's Trouble as the Tribulation period is set to kick off very soon. After the Rapture of the Church, the divine wrath of God will ultimately come in response to an arrogance of the nations against His covenant with Israel, particularly as it touches the question of Israel, Jerusalem and the Temple Mount.
Zechariah 12:2-Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem
Joel 3:2-I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.
Daniel 9:27- And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.
Matthew 24:15-16-And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)
Revelation 11:1-2-And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
This is the Eschatological context in which the gospel was first preached for a witness to all nations. It must be so again. The first disciples lived under the shadow of an imminent, age-ending judgment of Jerusalem. So shall it be again.
Daily Jot: Speaking truth to convict the lies - Bill Wilson -
In Ezekiel 8, the Lord God through a vision showed Ezekiel the abominations that were being committed in the temple. Verse 9 says, "And he said unto me (Ezekiel), Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do there." Ezekiel records that he saw every form of creeping things and abominable beasts, and idols portrayed upon the walls. Moving to the inner court, he saw the elders worshiping false gods. In verse 17, the Lord says "for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger." Of course, the Lord was speaking of the Temple and the abominations the elders of Judah were doing. But this is not unlike what we have today in America.
The elders of America, among them our elected officials, are committing all sorts of abominations against God and country. We have the deep state and the Democratic Party, influenced by globalism and communism, trying to undermine the nation. The more that these wicked allies press to expose, the deeper they all are implicated. They threaten obstruction, threats of impeachment and more investigations if they don't get their way. Encouragement to violence, acerbic rhetoric, and a lack of civility are the hallmarks of these people. On the other hand are the Republicans who lack courage to stand for what is right, they appease and fall back, and they secretly do things like fund the Planned Parenthood abortion mill.
The news media rarely checks facts, allowing the outrageous statements and accusations of people to stand, if it aligns with their leftist agenda. Even one of the weakest senators in Congress can see through the shenanigans. On this past weekend's "Fox News Sunday," Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said The New York Times' story that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein considered invoking the 25th Amendment against President Donald Trump was more proof of a "bureaucratic coup" against the president. Indeed, the far left-leaning New Yorker published a story about new sexual abuse accusations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh-all of which are unconfirmed and unverified. The media doesn't dig into the wall of these stories to find the truth. They inflame, defame, but don't verify. They are agenda driven.
The elected leaders of this country are abandoning their responsibility to the country and to those who elected them, and instead, are promoting the schisms fomented by their political agendas. All sides are wrong, some far more than others. The Lord commanded Ezekiel to "warn the wicked from his wicked way" and warn the righteous from turning from his righteousness and committing iniquity. Those of us who know truth, should speak truth and not shrink back. We need to do our part to change this vitriolic atmosphere by speaking truth firmly, but in love. Be encouraged to not raise our voices or get caught up in the argumentative atmosphere, but simply state the truth and allow it to convict the lies.
Daily Devotion: Walking Epistles - By Greg Laurie - www.harvest.org
By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. -Hebrews 11:4
When you decide to walk with Jesus as you ought to, not everyone will like it. You might have friction with an unbelieving husband or wife. You might have friction with coworkers and friends. And sometimes even people who profess to be Christians might say you're getting a little too "fanatical."
We need to step out in faith. It is not always the easiest thing to do. Living by faith has a price, but faith is the willingness to obey God regardless of the circumstances.
When Moses wanted to deliver the Israelites from Egypt, his fellow Jews got angry with him. In effect they said, "Moses, what are you even doing here? We had a good life working in the hot sun, getting whipped by Egyptians all day. Then you come along with your big ideas of faith and getting out of here and going to someplace we've never even heard of! Now our life is tougher. The pharaoh is taking our straw away, and it's harder to make bricks. Get out of here!"
There will be opposition to people who step out in faith. Look at what happened to Abel. He stepped out in faith, and his brother, Cain, killed him. But God's judgment came upon Cain.
Meanwhile, Abel made it into the Hall of Faith as a bona fide world changer. Verse 4 of Hebrews 11 says, "God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks." No words from Abel are recorded anywhere in the Bible. Yet the Bible says that he, being dead, still speaks.
Sometimes your life speaks volumes. And sometimes it's what you do that is your sermon. It has been said that Christians are walking epistles, written by God and read by men. What kind of legacy will you leave?
