  • Prophets – The Voices in the Wilderness Giving Warnings to Lobsters

    One of the things that I wanted to do this year was to study my way through the book of Isaiah seeing as he is considered the Gretzky of prophets. First, though,  I wanted to do some research on what a prophet really is, and why should I care what they said thousands of years […]
