Athaliah lives

Most people think the most horrible woman in the bible was Jezebel or Herodias. No, it was Athaliah, the daughter of Jezebel. After the death of her husband, the king, she ruled Judah alone and had all the male children of the House of David killed. These were her own grandsons, nephews, and great nephews.  Athaliah wanted what she wanted and those babies were in her way. They had to go. Athaliah lived over three thousand years ago but her spirit lives and thrives.

Her spirit certainly is alive and well. Especially in the Unites States with its 55 million dead.
Very sad. We are in for a chastisement; maybe we are getting it now.

Old Bob, you are most certainly correct. But we must remember that all the saints suffered, all lived through a time of misery, for that is how God keeps strong the remnant and the saints are created. We must use this time of darkness to become more like the Light.

OVER 3000 years ago? BEFORE King David?

I don't think so.

Do US Americans regularly say "over" when they mean "nearly"?
