E-day! (4 Of 8) by Jerry Vines
This content is part of a series.E-DAY!
In the providence of God, there was a special
place and purpose for the Jewish people. God had
decreed that through these people, his chosen people

gifts that God has given to the world through the
Jewish people. One of those gifts is the Scriptures.

were sent by post into all the king's provinces, to
destroy, to kill and to cause to perish all Jews.
The will of God is that they are an indestructible
