Three days and three nights?

September 24, 2021

“As Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (Matthew 12:40) On which day did Jesus die to be resurrected on a Sunday?

A Message of Hope

November 15, 2020

The current pandemic has left me anxious and concerned for myself and my family as days turn into weeks and months with no end in sight. I’ve lost several friends to COVID-19; others have been furloughed from their jobs, and their families have been left vulnerable and without a sense of security.

The Third Angel’s Message

October 12, 2020

Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.(Revelation 14:9-12)
