THE HAPPY END OF THE WORLD!--Will You Be There?--The Bible Tells You!
1. (1) THIS IS THE GENERATION UPON WHOM THE ENDS OF THE EARTH ARE COME! So God has been especially good to us & has poured out a flood of His Word such as no generation has ever known!--Marvellous mysteries of His Truth!--Visions, prophecies, dreams, revelations, trips to Heaven!--To prepare this last generation for the soon-coming time of trouble, as well as for the glorious Happy Ending!
2. BACK IN JANUARY 1972 THE LORD TOLD US, "THE FLOOD OF THE WATER OF GOD'S TRUTH RISES, & SHALL COVER THE EARTH AS THE WATERS COVER THE SEAS!"--And He has fulfilled this promise by raising up a young, radical, soul-winning army of dedicated followers of Jesus Christ who have refused to believe that God is dead or even sick, & have exploded out of the narrow confines of limited churchianity into all the World, preaching the Gospel & spreading His Words to every creature by every means possible!
3. GOD, IN THESE LAST DAYS, IS SHOWING TO WHAT EXTREMES HE'S WILLING TO GO TO LOVE & REACH & SAVE PEOPLE--TO THE UTMOST! He is using the very love, freedom, affection, beauty & romance that He Himself created, for His Own glory, to attract & win souls to His Heavenly Kingdom! He is using His children as the vessels of His Love, to manifest & to pour out His Love to others on the street corners, in the parks, in the cafe's, & even in the nightclubs & bars where many lonely, broken-hearted people would never be reached otherwise!
4. (2) PERHAPS YOU WONDER HOW WE CAN BE SO SURE THAT WE ARE THE LAST GENERATION, THOSE WHO WILL SOON WITNESS THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE NOW KNOW IT. How can anyone be so certain about the Future? Well, the answer is simple: To cross the bounds of Time & peer into the Future, all you have to do is tune in to God & His wonderful Word! For He alone is the great "I AM", Who dwells in the Eternal Now where there is no past nor future & "time shall be no more", as Einstein proved. (Rev.10:6) In the spirit it's like the past, present & future are all one! It all looks the same to God, & He can easily reveal the mysteries of the Future to His prophets & seers: "For surely the Lord God will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the Prophets!" (Amos 3:7)
5. IT'S WONDERFUL TO BE ABLE TO READ A NEWSPAPER THAT TELLS YOU WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN!--Not just what's already happened, which anybody can tell you, but what's going to happen! The marvellous prophecies & predictions of the Bible do just that, they tell us what's going to happen! God has given us the latest news about the times in which we're living right now, & what's going to happen next! The Bible not only tells us about yesterday, it also tells us about tomorrow!
6. (3) ALL THE WAY THROUGH THE MANY PROPHETIC BOOKS OF THE BIBLE THERE ARE COUNTLESS, SPECIFIC, DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS OF THESE LAST DAYS ON EARTH BEFORE CHRIST'S SECOND COMING. The Lord has given us these signs because He wants us to know about the soon coming of His Kingdom & to be prepared for it. In fact, the Bible gives us hundreds of "signs of the times", signs & signals that we are to look out for so that we will know exactly how close to the very End we really are! (Mt.24:All)
7. THESE SIGNS INCLUDE: A DRAMATIC UPSURGE IN "FAMINES, PESTILENCES & EARTHQUAKES IN DIVERS PLACES" (Mt.24:7), "the Gospel being preached in all the World for a witness to all nations" (Mt.24:14), a drastic increase in international travel, with "many running to & fro, wandering from sea to sea, as knowledge is greatly increased." (Dan.12:4; Amos 8:11,12)--A great "falling away" (2Th.2:3) from the Lord as "evil men & seducers grow worse & worse, deceiving many". (2Ti.3:13)--"The love of many growing cold" (Mt.24:12), resulting in "distress of nations upon the Earth & men's hearts failing them for fear"! (Lk.21:25,26)--Signs which are all obviously being fulfilled today more than ever before!
8. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT & FINAL SIGNS OF THE VERY END THAT MANY PROPHETS HAVE PREDICTED IS THE RISE OF A TOTALLY GODLESS ANTI-CHRIST WORLD GOVERNMENT led by a demonic dictator who will actually be fully possessed by Satan himself! He will come on the scene with a 7-year agreement or Covenant in which he will promise the World peace & religious freedom, & he will somehow settle the current crisis in the Mid-East by working out a compromise between the Arabs & the Jews, enabling the Jews to rebuild their Temple on Mt. Moriah, Jerusalem, where their ancient Temple once stood & where the Muslim "Dome of the Rock" Mosque stands today. (Dan.8:23-25; 2Th.2:1-4; Dan.9:27)
9. DURING THE FIRST HALF OF THE ANTICHRIST'S 7-YEAR COVENANT people are going to think that he is wonderful, as he will have brought peace, restored the World's economy, solved the Mid-East crisis, etc. But suddenly, half-way through his 7-year reign, he will break the Covenant, invade Israel from the North, & will forbid & abolish all traditional religious worship, declaring that he himself is God & demanding that all the World worship him! (Dan.9:27; 8:9-12; 11:21-24,28-31,36; 2Th.2:3,4,8,9.)
10. AT THIS TIME HE WILL PLACE AN IDOL, AN IMAGE OF HIMSELF, IN THE REBUILT JEWISH TEMPLE, an "Abomination of Desolation" which will probably be some kind of a computerised robot, as it will speak & somehow even cause those who refuse to worship it to be killed! Jesus Himself said that when you see this idol, this Abomination of Desolation, standing there in the Temple, then would begin the last 3-1/2 years of man's rule on Earth, a time of "Great Tribulation", when the Antichrist & his Devilish forces would persecute & tribulate the people of faith, as all traditional religions will be forbidden & banned! In fact, no one will be able to buy or sell goods or necessities except those who worship the bestial Antichrist & accept his credit number in their foreheads or in their hands. (Dan.11:31; 12:11; Mt.24:15-21; Rev.13:14-18)
11. (4) EXACTLY 3-1/2 YEARS AFTER THE FIENDISH ANTICHRIST ERECTS HIS IMAGE, JUST WHEN HE THINKS HE HAS EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL--at last he's worshipped by the whole World & he "sitteth in the Temple of God, as God, shewing himself that he is God" (2Th.2:4)--suddenly--BOOM!--like a bolt from the blue, something happens!--Jesus comes riding in the clouds "with power & great glory" & the tremendous, supernatural "resurrection of life" takes place, when all the saved who were dead will come to life & all of the saved who are still alive will be raised into the air to meet Jesus in the clouds! (Mt.24:29-31; Jn.5:29; 1Thes.4:16,17)
12. JUST IMAGINE!--GRAVES BURSTING OPEN & SAINTS ARISING FROM THE DEAD IN POWERFUL NEW RESURRECTION BODIES!--And we believers who are alive & remain being caught up together with them in the air, right in front of the eyes of the whole World! Every one of God's truly saved, born-again, Christ-trusting, Jesus-loving children will be resurrected, translated & changed, & we will all have new supernatural bodies, our eternal bodies, resurrection bodies like the Lord had when He was resurrected!
13. "BEHOLD, HE COMETH WITH CLOUDS, & EVERY EYE SHALL SEE HIM, & they also which pierced Him: And all kindreds of the Earth shall wail because of Him!" (Rev.1:7) When they see Jesus in the sky & millions of His children rising to meet Him in the air in this tremendous Rapture, this glorious, thunderous, lightning-like, Earth-shaking, Heaven-quaking event, they're going to be scared half out of their wits, almost to death, because then they will know that they were wrong! They will know that we were right, because they will see Jesus coming to rescue & save us out of all the horrible Tribulation that they caused us!
14. (5) IN THE BOOK OF REVELATION IN THE BIBLE, JOHN ENVISIONED CHRIST'S GATHERING TOGETHER OF ALL HIS CHILDREN AS A GREAT HARVEST: "And I looked, & behold a white cloud, & upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown."--He won't come as a babe in the manger then, but as the King of kings, to rule & reign forever!--"And in His hand a sharp sickle. And He that sat on the cloud thrust in His sickle on the Earth; & the Earth was reaped!" (Rev.14:14-16) Jesus will catch His Church, His children, out of this World!--But the outlook isn't so bright & beautiful for those who reject Him!
15. FOLLOWING THESE VERSES ON THE GLORIOUS RAPTURE OF THE SAVED, THE BIBLE TELLS US OF ANOTHER ALTOGETHER DIFFERENT HARVEST, which has to do with those who miss the first one! "And another angel came out, he also having a sharp sickle. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the Earth, & gathered the vine of the Earth, & cast it into the great winepress of the Wrath of God! And the winepress was trodden without the city, & blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand & six hundred furlongs (200 miles!)." (Rev.14:19,20) The slaughter during the Wrath of God & the Battle of Armageddon is going to be so horrible that blood is going to run for 200-&-some miles, in some places even as deep as the horses' bridles!
16. (6) WHEN JESUS COMES BACK TO RESCUE HIS CHILDREN OUT OF THE HELL-ON-EARTH OF THE ANTICHRIST'S GREAT TRIBULATION PERIOD, it will be our glorious Exodus from this horrible World! He will come & "gather together" His saints, His children, "from one end of Heaven to the other" & "so shall we ever be with the Lord!" (Mt.24:31; 1Th.4:17)
17. HE'LL COME BACK TO CATCH HIS BRIDE, HIS CHURCH, OUT OF THE EVIL CLUTCHES OF THE ENEMY & to take her into His bosom!--A union which will be so thrilling & exciting & will be such ecstasy that it is called the Rapture! Jesus will come for His Church, His Bride, as her Bridegroom, & will catch us up from this World into the air, into His arms, uniting us all as one with Him, & then whisk us away to the grandest, most glorious & thrilling Wedding Party that's ever been held--the great "Marriage Supper of the Lamb", the great Wedding Feast, the Grand Homecoming Party, the Celebration of the Victory!
18. (7) THEN AFTER HE HAS TAKEN HIS BRIDE, HIS CHILDREN, OUT OF THIS WORLD & INTO HIS HEAVENLY BRIDAL CHAMBER, GOD POURS OUT HIS JUDGEMENTS & WRATH UPON THE ANTICHRIST FORCES to punish'm & to sock it to'm with what they deserve!--Until the final Wrath of all, when Jesus Himself, along with His resurrected, glorified, Heavenly forces, will return on majestic white horses out of Heaven, an invasion from Outer Space, to win the supernatural, catastrophic Battle of Armageddon which will wipe out the forces of the Antichrist completely! Then we, along with our King Jesus Christ, will take over this World as it now is & we will organise it & rule it & run it the way it should have been run if man had yielded to God!
19. HE SAYS, "BLESSED & HOLY IS HE THAT HATH PART IN THE FIRST RESURRECTION (The Rapture): On such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God & of Christ, & shall reign with Him a thousand years!" (Rev.20:6) This 1,000-year period is called the Millennium, when Jesus Christ & His Children will reign supreme over what is left of this World & its unsaved populations.
20. WE, THE BORN-AGAIN, SAVED, RESURRECTED SAINTS, WILL BE IN OUR POWERFUL NEW SUPERNATURAL BODIES THEN, but the rest of the World, those who have been spared & blessed enough to survive through the Wrath of God & Armageddon into the Millennium, are going to still be in their old natural bodies. Therefore life will go on as usual in a lot of ways for them, except for one big difference: We'll be in charge, Jesus & His Kingdom will be the government, & we will rule the Earth! (Rev.1:6)
21. (8) WE WILL HAVE BODIES LIKE THE ANGELS OF GOD which can appear or disappear at will, travel with the speed of thought & have such a rod of God's power that they can destroy His enemies by the millions if they so choose, with the lightning of God! So there will be no more crime, no more vice, no more riots & no more war!--Just perfect total peace under the iron-rule dictatorship of the Lord & His children.
22. THEN & ONLY THEN, UNDER THE SUPREME & POWERFUL RULE & REIGN OF CHRIST & GOD'S CHILDREN, WILL ALL WARS FINALLY CEASE & the World at last be governed fairly & well with true justice, liberty, peace, plenty & happiness for all! "And He shall judge among the nations, & shall rebuke many people: & they shall beat their swords into plowshares, & their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more!" (Is.2:4)--Complete disarmament at last! That will be the World's first real genuine disarmament, beating their weapons into instruments of peace! Hallelujah!
23. (9) ANOTHER MAJOR CHANGE THAT WILL OCCUR DURING THE MILLENNIUM IS THAT THE CURSE WILL BE PARTIALLY LIFTED, which will mean a lot of different & better conditions, thank the Lord! The Earth will be like it was during the days of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden! The Curse & the results of the Curse will be removed & things will be partially restored to pre-Curse conditions. The animals will go back to being herbivorous again & won't eat each other, much less us! Apparently man won't eat flesh then either, we'll all be vegetarians again!
24. THE ONLY FORMS OF TRANSPORTATION THAT ARE GOING TO BE LEFT WILL BE THE GOD-GIVEN, GOD-CREATED, GOD-ORDAINED ONES--horses, camels, mules, wagons, etc.--which were good enough for the World for thousands of years before they ever heard of anything else! In the Millennial Kingdom of Jesus Christ there won't be any stinking automobiles belching fumes anymore, or any big smokey smoke-belching factories!--So they won't have to worry about oil anymore! They're not going to have all of this modern destructive machinery & smoke & oil & nuclear power & whatnot! Perhaps for transporting heavy loads of raw materials, foods, etc., they'll go back to majestic sailing vessels, powered by God's Own good clean winds & currents!
25. (10) AT THE END OF THIS WONDERFUL, 1,000-YEAR MILLENNIAL PERIOD, GOD IS GOING TO COMPLETELY PURGE & PURIFY THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH WITH A FLOOD OF FIRE so great that "the elements will melt with fervent heat, the Earth also & the works that are therein shall be burned up!" (2Pet.3:10; Rev.20:8,9; 21:1) Then God will rebuild a New World on the ashes of the old--"a New Heavens & a New Earth wherein dwelleth righteousness"! (2Pet.3:13) It will be the same ball, the same planet, but with a beautiful renewed surface! He's going to recreate the entire surface of the Earth into a beautiful Garden of Eden! And then His great Heavenly Space City will come down from God out of space to land on that beautiful New Earth!
26. SO YOU'RE NOT GOING TO GO TO HEAVEN TO LIVE WITH GOD, GOD IS GOING TO COME TO EARTH TO LIVE WITH YOU! It will be like God taking over the World by invading it from Outer Space! Man's science fiction space stories & space stations & space cities don't even come close to God's!--Imagine!--1500 miles long, 1500 miles wide & 1500 miles high!--1500 miles!--2400 kilometers!
27. ONLY GOD'S SAVED CHILDREN WILL HAVE THE RIGHT & BLESSING TO LIVE WITHIN THE GREAT HEAVENLY CITY ITSELF--Spacemen in Space City with the Space King! (Rev.21:24,27) But outside there will still be Earth people in various conditions & grades & degrees & situations according to the lives they lived & to how fully they received the Lord's correction, mercy & Truth.
28. (11) WITHIN THE CITY THERE'S A BEAUTIFUL RIVER OF LIFE FLOWING RIGHT OUT OF THE THRONE OF GOD, right through its center, with a park on both sides & Trees of Life that bear twelve different kinds of fruit, & the "leaves are for the healing of the nations". (Rev.22:2)--Certainly none of the resurrected saints in their supernatural bodies are going to need healing, so it's obvious that this healing is for the people & nations outside the City!
29. EVEN THEN, GOD'S GOING TO CONTINUE TO HAVE MERCY! He's going to send His children out of the twelve pearly gates of that Heavenly City with the leaves of the Tree of Life for the healing of the nations!--So we will still have a job to do! That churchy idea of sitting around, floating on clouds, fiddling with harps & doing nothing is just the imagination of some ignorant cartoonist!
30. (12) BUT LET'S HOPE THAT EVEN IN THE NEW EARTH THERE WILL SOMEDAY COME AN END TO THE HEALING OF THE NATIONS WITH THE LEAVES FROM THE TREE OF LIFE.--So that all suffering & all punishment on Earth & under the Earth will eventually end.--So that all men everywhere, all the billions who ever lived, will finally be restored & reconciled & in a sense, saved, & live either with the elect, the elite, within the City, or else outside the City on the New Earth, in varying stages & conditions & levels.
31. AND WHEN THAT'S ALL DONE, WHO KNOWS WHAT GOD WILL HAVE IN STORE FOR US? Who knows but perhaps the Lord may want us to colonise other Worlds! After all, what's the whole Universe & all this huge amount of space for if He's only interested in this one little planet? So maybe there will be other Worlds that we will have to salvage & save & restore & regenerate, reconcile & teach & train & heal!
32. AND THAT'S THE WAY OUR STORY ENDS:--IT'S A VERY HAPPY ENDING, BECAUSE IT DOESN'T REALLY END! It's just the happy beginning!--It's eternal & forever! "And they lived happily ever after!"
33. WILL YOU LIVE HAPPILY FOR EVER AFTER? Will you enjoy the happy ending of the beautiful Rapture, the Wedding Party, the Millennial Heaven-on-Earth & God's great, eternal Heavenly Space City? Are you one of the saved who will be allowed to live in that great Heavenly City? All you have to do is ask Jesus to come into your heart, & you'll be granted instant, permanent citizenship to that Great Golden City! In fact, you can have a real sample & taste of what Heaven & Eternal Life are like right here & now if you'll just take Jesus into your heart!--Receive Him today! Just pray, "Dear Jesus, come into my heart!"--And He will!
34. GOD BLESS YOU WITH HIS LOVE & HEAVENLY SALVATION HERE, NOW & FOREVER! We would be happy to send you more Heavenly information & other gorgeous Heavenly Posters if you'll write us at the address below! God bless you! We love you!
