"SCOFFERS" AT HIS COMING
Jesse M. Hendley
Second Peter 3:3
I want to speak to you today on the signs of the days
in which we live, days of trouble, days of difficulty.
In Second Peter 3:3 God says that there will come in

The Bible reveals there is coming a time of great
trouble before Jesus returns to earth, such as the
world has never known. The scientific progress made in
the past few years is a WARNING. Even a scientist says
so. He says, not even from the Bible viewpoint that
GOD is going to step into man's affairs at CLOSING
TIME, time for GOD to ...
