    The prophecy came true in Syria 😰
  • Norm
    Thank You Father our Lord our Saviour, Christ Jesus, for Your Word. Amen. The prophecy of this chapter is happening today before our very eyes. Syria is destroyed, people are fleeing when allowed and the United Nations are rushing to the diplomacy table, appearing to seek peace. Arise LORD and have mercy on the people: all for Your glory. Let our days here be few. In Christ Jesus we live! Amen
