Jesus is Coming Again! But When?

A look at why the King must come before the Kingdom


The frustrations we face on this earth will one day be settled by the King of kings Himself: Jesus, the Messiah of Israel and Savior of the world. In this issue of Israel My Glory, we discuss why the King must come before the Kingdom. This truth is often turned upside down, but Jesus will turn it right side up when He returns.
