H.A. Ironside Commentary
I long to know Him more intimately — let the suffering involved be what it may. I would even die as He died, or die any other way that He might choose, in order to be included in the great catching away of all the saints at His coming. I want to follow whatever way will lead me to the glorious resurrection from among the dead.slide 8
