Rebekah's TreasureAs a Bible study teacher I was intrigued by the destruction of the Jewish Temple and Jesus’ prophecy concerning it. After researching the event and times, what I discovered utterly amazed me. I began seeing parallels to other Bible prophecies: How Rome mirrored the New World Order spoken about in Daniel and Revelation. How the end time church resembled the religious groups of...

“We live in a cruel world, Isabel," he says, without looking at me. "I am only a man, and will not always live up to your expectations. And to me, that is a painful reality. But we must never be cruel to one another. Let there be peace between us.”
