And the nuclear age will culminate at Armageddon the place the measure of man will make the French Revolution massacre appear very small. You might have God’s phrase on it. At this time nevertheless is day of salvation, there’s nonetheless hope underneath grace, however solely till He comes, then man stands on his personal, with no proxy for sin.
