King Jesus' Mission

Posted by Bill Lovell on

The 2018 elections are over, and the votes are being counted. As I write this post, Democrats are projected to win the US House, and Republicans are projected to keep control of the US Senate. One person who is not on tonight's ballot--and never will be--is Jesus Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ...
