Spain who have inslaved the children who belongs to the Lord of all of the earth; harvest has now sadly ended just as the Lord has said at Jeremiah 8:13 that He will surly snatch them away,"declares the Lord;There will be no grapes on the vine And no figs on the fig tree and the leaf will wither; And what I have given them will pass away." The nation's are starting to understand that God gave them that nice wine, and he can also take it away!
