On a Final Note



If you do not know or have drifted away from God, please consider what I've written here. Satan mocks those who reject Jesus, knowing they will suffer the Second Death.



Remember, Belief Cannot Change Reality and the reality is that God exists and wants nothing more than to have a relationship with you through His Son Jesus. Please hearken to His call on your life.



If you do not have a relationship with Jesus, please consider turning your heart and life over to Christ...
