God said this is my beloved son, hear Him. We are to baptise in the name of the Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Steven said I see Jesus siting at the right hand of the Father.

    Zechariah chapter 12 v.8 tells plainly Israel will defeat all their close enemy neighbors next to or round about them taking all Jerusalem and land with it. This will be Israel 's next great war. Read Ezekiel 38 v.11 Israel has walls, bars and gates today. When Russia comes down there will be nowalls, bars or gates.
