EIGHT SIGNS OF THE RETURN OF CHRIST
Jesse M. Hendley
I want to present to you eight definite, unmistakable
signs of the coming of the Lord, that indicate that on

not fantasy. It is cold, sober fact.
Now how did Daniel know, looking down through the
course of history, that at the time of the end, on the
eve of the resurrection of the dead, there would be a
great increase in transportation, people moving con-
