The Promise of Personal Victory! (9 of 12) by David Cawston
This content is part of a series.The Promise of Personal Victory!
Background of the Promise
These words are taken from a prophecy about Israel's future security!
God's wrath will pass! Isa. 51
There will be a wonderful restoration. Isa.52
The Messiah will come. Isa. 53
