September 7th-9th, 2018
It is often said, when you see a “therefore” in the bible, you should find out what it’s there for. A “therefore” normally marks a transition between what was said, and what we must learn or remember. Jesus Himself says in Matthew 24 that we are to “watch therefore”, because we don’t know the day or the hour of His return.
