Eschatology: The Real Unknown

Posted 03-20-2022 at 08:40 AM by MysticPhD

"And it shall come to pass at that time, [that] I will search Jerusalem with candles, and punish the men that are settled on their lees: that say in their heart, The LORD will not do good, neither will He do evil." - Zephaniah 1:12 KJV
