    If sinners that have not repented for their sins and accept the lord as their Lord and Savior,and think that running and hiding from God's judgement,trying to save their lives,they will surely die. There is no where to hide!

    We_ so called blacks will possess the remnant of Edom-The so called white man... Edom is the so called white man. Mohab is the Chinese, Hamites are Africans, Ismaelites are Arabs.. The so called white man is from the seed of Esau, hence the term redneck... The Most High clearly states that in Obadiah, Isaiah, 14:21, 60:1-16, Psalm 149:8 that all of you are going into slavery for 1000 years...
  • Obbie Beal

    But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is godly for himself; the LORD will hear when I call unto him. Stand in awe, and sin not; commune with 'your own heart' upon your bed, and be still. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD.

    Jehovah God is a God of Mercy. Even when we sin and stray away for him he remembers us. Praise Jehovah god.
