Because they worship idols Redemption occurs in the book of Isaiah “ 333”. It talks about the waste land saying that “Masiah will be a river in a dry land the shadow of a great rock in a weary land”

Time will come when we dearly wish to die. No one can imagine how horrible life might be then to the extent that the most frequently desired wish is death. The mere thought of this gives me a violent shudder!
