According to their website, Facebook’s mission is to “give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected.” There was an impressive average of 802 million active users per day in March.
“And he (Jahaziel) said, 'Listen, all you of Judah and you inhabitants of Jerusalem, and you, King Jehoshaphat! Thus says the Lord to you: "Do not be afraid nor dismayed because of this great multitude, for the battleisnot yours, but God’s”'" (2 Chronicles 20:15).
The Bible says “there will be great tribulation such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be.” Should we be concerned and what, if anything, can we do about it?
We started out on our trip, a long cross-continental journey to see family in the Pacific Northwest and Western South Dakota, with no GPS unit. Technically we had one, but it stopped tracking at the border of Illinois, dropping us into a void of non-digital migration. What could we do?
