  1. At Joel 3:1-13 God stated in his anger about the Greeks to the effect don’t tuch anymore the children of God or their will be emedeit grave pay back! For God is not one who forgets and have no real concerns about what happened to his children in the pass or now as you can now see that he will not leave the innocent blood of those who were took into slavery on May 24th 1619 and of those who were mistreated in our days unavenged! And Moor is soon coming! To the likes that the hole world will not ever see again! Act 7:5-7
