  1. Draw in close NOW nations, GOD HAS SAID THAT AT THIS TIME ALL OF THE STARS THAT YOU HAVE WORSHIPPED WILL indeed FALL out of the sky! Just like overrripe,rotting fruit in the orchard, And the sky itself will be folded up like a blanket and put away in a closet. YES! All that army of stars, ( Angels ) shriveled to nothing, like leaves and fruit in autumn dropping and rotting!
