    "The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted."
    Another verse describing the coming of the Lord and the end of this present evil world! There are so many in-depth descriptions, of the great and dreadful Day of the LORD. We are seeing these things come to the full; yet most continue on carelessly. God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble!
