Round 12 ... Light & Darkness Battle for Souls!

Over just the past 10 years the Prince of Darkness and the Light of the World have been battling for the minds and hearts of people world-wide in new and unprecedented ways! Here is just a partial scorecard of the titanic blows landed by each side...

A heavyweight-boxing match goes 12 rounds, but if the fight "goes the distance", the
fiercest round is often the last.
That is because both fighters are calling upon all of their
reserves of cunning and strength to score points or even achieve a knockout punch. The evidence presented above indicates to me that we are in round 12 ! But don't listen for a bell, dear is the sound of a shofar which will signal the end of this fight... and the triumph of our God and His King, Jesus Christ!

Look up, saints, for "your redemption draweth nigh!"
