May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable to you, Lord, my rock and my redeemer. Amen. (Psalm 19:14) False prophets are not ...read more

    Title: Fire Upon the Earth “I am come to kindle fire upon the earth and what would I desire more than that it should already burn!” (Luke 12:49).
