How the Seven Mysteries Were Revealed
Jeremiah protested that he was too young. But God
said: "Do not say, 'I am only a youth'; for to all to whom
I send you you shall go, and whatever I command you

experience by which Jesus Christ struck me down, so

speak, and revealed ASTOUNDING TRUTHS! Biblical truths

David." My forebears emigrated from England to
