About ADOSS – In the Last Days Perilous Times shall Come

Zech 4:10

Who hath despised the day of small things

Paul says that in 2 Tim 3:1 and we are told from whom to turn away.  We are in perilous (or difficult) days now. Days of small things.

This site draws on the words of a few of the Lord’s servants, John Nelson Darby (JND) in particular, mostly in simplified and summary form, to provide encouragement and instruction for believers who are concerned to ‘walk in the light’ – and above all following, and keeping close to Jesus.
