In the small village I grew up in, the news of someone’s demise would always leave me terrified, traumatized and even tormented. My childhood nights were a nightmare.

Jesus Christ is building an administration. He is calling us to be kings and priests, and we will reign on the Earth with Him (Revelation 5:10). God is organized.
