II Corinthians 4:16 - 5:9

In Corinthians chapter 5 and when you've found it look
up here. Again, Second Corinthians chapter 5. Did
you know that in the world today more than one hundred
thousand people will die? As a matter of fact, every
time your watch ticks, a soul will die--a ticking of

unless the Lord intervenes by his second coming, we

here. That was a thrill and that was exciting, but
you've got something far more exciting ahead. Every
one of us, every one of us is going to move into a
custom designed house. Listen to God's word right
here. The Bible says, "For we know that if our
earthly house of this tabernacle," the word tabernacle
means tent or dwelling place, "were dissolved, we have
a building of God, a house not made with hands,
eternal in the heavens. For in this we groan,
