Can one person really make a difference in a dark world? Can a nation be saved from certain judgement through the faithfulness of one person? The bible says yes. Not only that, but the word also shows us what type of person can persuade God to withhold his hand of judgment against a rebellious nation. It takes a hero. Not man's idea of a hero, but what scriptures describe as a hero of faith. A hero deep within us all to bring us victory in these last days.
