The Truth Regarding Peace: War is not a Necessity  

QUOTE FOR THE WEEK

and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”  Revelation 13: 18, Authorized Version.

 

The following is quoted from: An Exhaustive E.G. White Commentary on Revelation, Vol. II Footnotes of Rev. 13: 18. Review & Herald Publishing Association:

Only by divine enlightenment [not human wisdom] will men understand the mysteries of the Word of God (see on 1 Cor. 2:13). “ Read more

It would be interesting to see what their individual reactions would be, and how much, if any, it would influence their thinking for the present and the long-term in their powerful positions within their respective spheres of influence in forming policies and making decisions on the fly as presidents of two  nations that are currently on the spotlight of the daily news cycle: Read more
