What is going to happen soon? – The Last Days are here, Part 1

It appears, if current reports are accurate, that the rumors of war may be approaching a definite confrontation in the near future.

Why Did God’s Chosen People Stay in Egypt After the Famine?

Over the years, I’ve studied, and attended lectures, about Jacob and the ‘Twelve Tribes of Israel’ living a good life in Egypt during the early days of their exile. This also includes studying about Moses and his rescue of the Israelites from slavery in Egypt hundreds of years later. The problem is that not much …
