About Me

God desires that ALL people would accept God's love and salvation through Jesus Christ. God has compelled me to share information with the world relating to the biblical seven year tribulation in order to share Truth in a deceived world.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made. In Him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. (John 1:1-5)

Jesus answered, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." (John 14:6)

Jews to mark their holiest day

It's the Day of Atonement — Yom Kippur — a day of solemn prayer and reflection for Jews throughout the world.
The holiest day of the Jewish year and last day of the 10-day High Holy Days period, Yom Kippur begins at sundown today and continues through sundown Monday.

It's a 25-hour period of fasting and self-denial, commemorating God's giving the second set of tablets of the Ten Commandments to Moses after God had forgiven the Israelites for worshipping a golden calf.

Seating in San Antonio's synagogues is more scarce for this event than at any other time of the year because even many Jews who are not usually observant are drawn to their faith for this solemn day that's at the center of Jewish religious life.

A deeply moving part of the Yom Kippur eve service tonight will be the chanted music of the Kol Nidre, an ancient prayer for the annulment of vows between people and God.

It recalls times when Jews were forced to renounce their faith and embrace Christianity. Because they did so under duress, they asked God's permission to undo the promises.
