The Cross Engulfed in Darkness

Luke 23:44 “And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.” That darkness was the speech of God at the cross. God’s voice prevailed over the land for three long hours. That speech of God was devoid of love and grace. It was God’s […]

In the year 1000 A.D., thousands of so called “Christians” fled to the hills of their countries. The reason for this was because they believed that Christ was coming in the year 1000 A.D. Some historians believe that there will be a repeat performance of this in the year 2000 A.D. We who hold the […]
