A Night of Fear

Have you ever been in a situation, where you have to choose a
spiritual path, the good way or the bad way? Well I was in that
situation quite a few years ago and the way I chose was dire….

The old preacher used to say to me, 'let Jesus come into your heart'
but I wouldn't listen I always used to think that, that was for the
older people. I used to think, why not enjoy my youth, why should I

taking drugs why should I deprive myself of all this enjoyed because
I've given my life to Christ. Why? Am I insane giving up all this
enjoyment just for Christ! But what I didn't know was that all this

horrible, hideous, horrific and worrying thing she ever told me that
even makes me icy cold all over even now. Was a animal that would be
released by God unto this earth when the antichrist is reigning. This
animal she described would come from the bottomless pit it was
reminiscent of a horse, it had wings, it's head had horns, its head

this animal that made me quiver like a lone twig in the wind was that
it could sting and this sting was like a scorpions sting but this
