THE RESURRECTION OF DEAD SOULS
Jesse M. Hendley
The Resurrection of Dead Souls! Ephesians 2:4, 5. If
you have your Bibles, I would like for you to turn
with me to this statement in God's Word. Paul paints a
picture of every unsaved soul in a powerful portrait
in Ephesians 2:1-3. "You hath He quickened (made

wrath of God is upon him. He goes to sleep at night,
and while he is sleeping God's wrath is hanging over
his head. The sentence is already proclaimed.
