My friends, Welcome Back.
Now, if you could not answer the previous question, 'Is Charles Haddon Spurgeon a 'liar', a 'fool', or a 'crazy person'? [See Posts 1A-1B, February 2, 2019 and Post 2, February 9, 2019; let us see how you do with the next Person and what He - 'The Son of God', 'Jesus the Christ' - has to say, about 'death'. See the posts dated February 16, 2019. As we continued our series, we remembered and have also considered what an 'Apostle', Paul, had to say, as well. [See our last Post 4 in the series posted on February 23, 2019.] Then, we concluded our 'introduction' with some 'encouragements and exhortations with Post 6a-b, on March 30, 2019. www.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html See all the Saturday posts during the month of April, 2019 for more.
Today, May 4, 2019, before we begin our Post 8 multiple part series for a season in which we will look in more details on the subject of 'mortality' and 'immortality' on our weekly Saturday Series, touching on the various 'sub-topics' we did not get into in our original series, let us take our time to review what has been posted to date.
Therefore, the following is for the next two Saturdays - May 4, 11, 2019 and hopefully may be of service for you in your review. We shall post again, May 18, 2019. Please take your time. Stay in the Presence of the Lord, enjoying His companionship and love. Review Post AM audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
