When the Guns Fell Silent.......1918
One hundred years ago the First World War came to a bitter end. Much of Europe had been devastated, famine and disorder rife and the Spanish flu was abounding.
Some 9.7 million soldiers, sailors and airmen had died in the conflict and about another 10 million civilians. Another 20 million were wounded, many of them seriously.

Rev 21:2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
Rev 21:3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God.
Rev 21:4 He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away."
Rev 21:5 And he who was seated on the throne said, "Behold, I am making all things new." Also he said, "Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true."
