To witness and to give you assurance of these things. Revelation 22:16.

Soul sleep and the transitional period. Where do we go when we die?


The motivation for writing, in this case, initiated with the study that I have been doing on the Revelation, where, at the moment, we are in chapters 21 and 22. Those chapters focus on a new heaven and a new … Continue reading

They have as king over them, Abaddon. Revelation 9:7-11.
