A triumphant praise in the midst of tragedy

Lamentations, in my opinion, is the saddest, most depressing book in the Bible. It is believed to have been written by the prophet Jeremiah, who gave an eyewitness account of the aftermath of the death, violence, destruction, and suffering that took place when Babylonian forces destroyed Jerusalem. Throughout it’s verses, Jeremiah laments over how the Lord’s… Continue reading A triumphant praise in the midst of tragedy

Christ’s return to claim earth will be like eagles gathered around a carcase

One of the most curious and mysterious statements made by the Lord Jesus was when he spoke about his return to earth in Matthew 24 and Luke 17.
