The Lord speaks about His return with brevity, but between the lines of His words there is prophetic carnage and nothing short of catastrophic global events and unlike anything ever known to man. Do you believe it?
Unprecedented persecution is coming to the Jewish people, warned Jesus, beginning in Jerusalem. He said when it comes, get out of Israel immediately! And as with all Bible prophecy, there is no reason to doubt it.
