On Judgment Day
Dedicated to my Brother in Christ Larry Livingston

THE HEART OF A CHILD
Whatever you write on the heart of a child,
no water can wash away.
The sands may be shifted when billows are wild
and the efforts of time may decay.

A young Bible college student was witnessing in Atlanta, GA. As he approached one house an elderly gentleman was sitting in his chair on the front porch. He asked, “Are you a Christian?” “No, I’m a Smith. The Christians live two doors down.” “I don’t think you understand. I mean, are you lost?”

FASTING BEFORE THE GREAT AWAKENING
