Catching up to the last few weeks.

Dear Readers and friends:

It's been a while since I posted here and it's time I post again..

The death of Robin Williams, who died by suicide, hits home very hard. Even for me. Even I have lost a good friend to suicide before. Suicide is NOT the answer. Many people think it's just one way out but it's not. It's death that exchanges life for MORE PAIN than you can bear in death and it's leaving the survivors in pain as well.  Please don't kill yourself. You owe yourself to get help and stay living. Too many people care about you.

But will ISIS and ISLAM serve the coming ANTI-CHRIST? It's possible that they will and they will turn their next attention soon on Israel.  But God will have the victory. Islam, ISIS, and the ANTI-Christ will all be defeated in due time.

Pray for our nation. If Russia craves for war, it may Continue reading
