The Final Curtain
Jesse M. Hendley
Matthew Chapter 24
If you are a serious student of the Bible, you have to
believe that the coming of the Lord is drawing very
near. If your mind is immersed in the Bible and you
know what God has to say, you recognize that certain
things are happening today that fulfill prophecies of
the Word of God. Current events show that God is about
