Our Questions Today:
• Can God Care for Me during this time of trouble?
• Will Jesus return as He promised? (2 Peter 3:3-4) "First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes

on as it has since the beginning of creation.”

• Can God Save my lost family and friends?
• Can God Keep those who are His?
• We find the answers to these questions as we look to how He FAITHFULLY CARED for us in the PAST.
