    We come today to the last in the series, "Wonders of the Spiritual World."  This final wonder is the culmination of all our hopes.  It is the turth that Jesus is coming again for us.

There is no need to talk to you about the manner of how Jesus will return.  Matthew 24:27  It is visible, audible and personal
