A STUDY OF THE NATIONS (2 of 3)
Jesse M. Hendley
GOD CREATES A NEW NATION
We have learned from our previous study that all this
GATHERING TOGETHER of the entire human race today is
simply going to make for greater WORLD SIN that will
REJECT GOD AND HIS CHRIST and RECEIVE the devil's
ANTICHRIST. That is just exactly what is going to
happen. And beyond that, we have the Coming of the

we are in a Christian land with Bibles in our hands,
and THE MAJORITY of Christians have never even taken
the trouble to study what God says in the Bible about
IDOLS. All in the world you have to do is get a
