THE PATH IS A PERSON
JOHN 14: 1 - 6
JESUS CHRIST said, "I am the way...," meaning "I and I only am

brought together. Each part is found to be to the exact scale of
the other and to be of the same material. Each part fits exactly
and contributes to make the whole figure. Amazingly the figure
is an exact likeness to Jesus Christ.
There are 332 prophecies related to Christ that have been
fulfilled. That not only is a mathematical impossibility and
physically inconceivable; it is a supernatural reality.

of New Orleans. The pilot i ...
