    It is very long and our Bible Study may a take 2 weeks on it. It talks all about the Holy Ghost coming upon them and on blessed they were. It is very good and enlightens to study such a good book that God left for us and even now we can get a lot of good out of it. A very good book and a lightening study. Becky

    These are all counterfeits. Not one in the flesh can speak the words of GOD, my Holy Father, but Jesus Christ. The wicked fabricated all manner of falsehood waiting for the coming of Jesus, even Christ being raised again from the dead, yet confess not that Jesus Christ is come. Nevertheless, this present evil world will end just as the last world. For it is written, The scripture cannot be broken:
