The Great Deceiver

The Antichrist


Satan is alive and well, and it behooves us to know his plans so we can warn people and teach them the truth. We pray God will use this issue of Israel My Glory for His honor and glory to deliver many people “from the power of darkness” and transfer them “into the kingdom of the Son of His love” (Col. 1:13).
