You Are the Light of the World

14 Ye are the light of the world.

Considering Proverbs 10:27

27 The fear of the Lord prolongeth days: but the years of the wicked shall be shortened. Sin is destructive.

Maybe this will develop further, and the understanding will if this is understanding from the Lord. I’m not trying to beContinue reading “Will we Worship the Beast and His Image or Will we Worship the King of Kings?”
