    Iam amazed today how so many claim to know a God ? What God ? The God of allah ?the God of Buddah ? The God of Hindus ? So many Gods , God of the Hebrews ? This God name has become universal : it fits into satans end time agenda to bring altogether as one ; be not not deceived : the only true name given among men whereby they must be saved will only come by the name of JESUS CHRIST ( The Son ) !!
