    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.

    This is a the time of the end when we travel over superhighways and knowledge is increased. resurrected saints will visit men of God and help them turn many to righteousness in preparation for the return of the Lord. In the last days many will be purified and made sinless fit for the Kingdom of God. But the wicked will not understand. Jesus will remove the wicked from the face of the earth. Amen
