    I sure hope this has not been posted recently because I'd be very interested in your thoughts.

    Matthew 24:14  And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.

    How near are we until this has been done? I'm kind of thinking this is very near completion if not already, how about you?
