    WARNING BRIDGE IS GONE 1000 FT DROP 1MILE AHEAD: Don't Worry I wil Run Out of Gas Before I Get There, Hopefully You To. If You Need to Make Sure You are Saved You're Probably Not. A Person Who is Saved Knows They are and Others Around Them.The Spirit Lives in Their Hear(2 Corinthians 5:17) End is Near(Mark 13:29, Luke 21:28) The Only Real Thing to do is Tell Others, Saved by The Blood of The Lamb

    Rev. One Must be Called:(John 6:44) Ask Forgiveness(1JOHN 1:9) Then You are Washed by The Blood of The Lamb(Revelation 1:5) Then You are Baptized with The Holy Ghost(Mark 1:8) You Will be Changed, All Things are Become New(2Corinthians 5:1) One Who is Saved Will Know, Impossible Not to Know. The Spirit Will Give a Love for Church, Reading The Bible, Praying, Telling Others What Christ has Done.
