The Gospel-a knock on Rome and a promise to Israel

“The beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.” â€" Mark 1:1 Two thousand years after this was written, Christians confidently proclaim that there is no gospel without Jesus Christ.

Answering the Accuser

Of Satan’s many descriptions, one of the most personally chilling is “the accuser of our brothers.” Revelation 12:8 tells of a coming day that he will be thrown down from Heaven, forced to stop his day and night accusations.
