Yeshua’s Warning — to Me!

Asleep

I cannot get Revelation 16:15 out of my head. I think it’s because I feel very strongly that Yeshua is speaking to *us* at this time, and if so, I need to listen. “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they […]
