    There is No Remission for Sin Without The Blood of The Lamb(Hebrews 9:11-28) Washed by The Blood(Revelation1-5)Then You are Clean Enough for The Holy Ghost to Move in(Mark 1:8) You Will be Changed(2 Corinthians 5:17) Impossible Not to Know.

    The moon is suppose to turn into blood, or so appear to be so tomorrow night. 01 20th, 2019. Although all the signs are here still people are foolish do not see the end is near. God wI'll return. Those who disbelieves are in for a shock the day Jesus comes back God rids the evil throws it all back into hell. I just hope my feet are clean enough to walk across th e golden streets of glory.

    No one can come to the Father unless the Holy Spirit draws him. (para. KJV) That's why the time to commit and accept Christ as one's Savior is Now.

  • David
