“The Horrible Holocaust”
July 14, 2013
Pastor Roger Ball
Smart people call it the C&S Law: The Law of Cause and Effect (consequence). Are you smart or foolish? Do you agree God keeps this law activated? How much “credit” do you give to God? In the future the sound of God’s horn from Angel Five triggers a “fallen star” from heaven and a “key” is given to unlock a “pit” filled with smoke and flying painful “locust” designed to torture people who are anti-Jesus. The C&S Law is designed by God to make us fast learners. Are you a slow learner? If you can hear this sermon and obey God’s laws, going forward, your life will be greatly blessed. If not you will see the humbling effect of the C&S Law.
