Acts 24.22-27

Dr. Ernest L. Easley

Now take your Bible and turn please to Acts
chapter 24. I am told of meeting that once took place
in Hell. Satan had gathered all of his demons to
discuss how best to damn and destroy the lives of
men.
One demon stood and said, “I know how to
damn the lives of men. Let us tell them there is no
