THE END TIMES The end times seem to hold a great fascination for many, and our Lord Jesus has much to say about this Scriptural matter. He tells us, “…When the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?” (Luke 18:8) In so speaking our Lord teaches us that faith will […] Read More
SECOND COMING OF JESUS CHRIST How often hasn’t it been said, “Well, at least it’s not the end of the world!”? This statement is generally made to console someone going through difficult times.

They know from previous election cycles just what to expect on the campaign trail, especially when running for the presidency.
