--The "Book of the Future" in a NUTSHELL!

       1. THE BIBLE & THE WORDS OF GOD'S PROPHETS ARE ACTUALLY THE ONLY REAL NEWSPAPERS, OR NEWSBOOKS, IN THE WORLD!--All other newspapers tell you what already happened yesterday, so they're not really news papers, they're history papers! But the Bible tells us what is going to happen tomorrow! It is full of thousands of detailed prophecies, actually describing specific people, places, times, situations & events thousands of years before they came into being! (Isa.34:16; 42:9; 2Pe.1:19-21.)

       2. MANY OF THESE PROPHECIES ARE ABOUT THE FINAL PERIOD OF WORLD HISTORY, just before Jesus returns to stop all of today's wickedness & to set up His Own Kingdom of Love & Peace on Earth. These last final days of man's kingdoms on Earth are known in the Bible as the "Time of the End", the "Latter Days", the "Last Days", etc.--the time in which you & I are now living! (Dan.2:28; 8:23; 12:4.)

       3. WHEN JESUS' DISCIPLES WANTED TO KNOW THE FUTURE & ASKED HIM, "WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING & OF THE END OF THE WORLD?", He didn't reply with only one sign, but with dozens! In fact, the Bible gives us hundreds of "signs of the times", signs & signals that we are to look out for so that we can know exactly how close to the very End we are! (Mt.24:All)

       4. 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!

       5. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT & FINAL SIGNS OF THE VERY END THAT MANY PROPHETS PREDICTED IS THE RISE OF A TOTALLY GODLESS ANTI-CHRIST WORLD GOVERNMENT led by a demonic dictator who will actually be Devil-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.)

       6. 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.)

       7. 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"! (Dan.11:31; 12:11; Mt.24:15-21; Rev.13:14,15.)

       8. DURING THIS 3-1/2 YEAR PERIOD PEOPLE WON'T USE PAPER MONEY ANYMORE because the Antichrist government is going to set up a One-World-Credit System, & all members of the System who reject Jesus & worship this Antichrist will be permanently branded with a credit number in their hands or foreheads! The Antichrist government will use this new credit system to try to force everybody to either worship the Antichrist or starve to death, because no one will be able to buy or sell without this number or "Mark of the Beast"!--But God's children will refuse to worship him or receive his Mark!--And the Lord will take care of us, even if He has to drop manna from Heaven to feed us! (Rev.13:16-18; 12:6,14)

       9. AND WHILE THE ANTICHRIST & HIS FOLLOWERS ARE PERSECUTING & TRYING TO GET GOD'S CHILDREN, God is going to let loose pestilences & plagues & even strange monsters which will attack these wicked people of the Devil! These days of the Tribulation will be like the last days of the children of Israel in Egypt!--God's prophets will be doing great & mighty signs, wonders & miracles to defend the Gospel & God's children! (Rev.7:3; 9:1-11; 11:3-6.)

       10. DURING THIS TRIBULATION PERIOD, 10 "KINGS" WILL JOIN THE ANTICHRIST & TOGETHER THEY WILL DESTROY & "DEVOUR WITH FIRE BABYLON, THE GREAT WHORE".--A final judgement which, according to many Scriptures, sounds like the 10 leading nations of Europe, such as we find in the European Economic Community, uniting with Russia & turning on America in a nuclear first-strike that will destroy her in one hour! (Dan.11:38,39,43; Rev.17:12,16,17; 18:1-10,17-19.)

       11. THIS GREAT ATOMIC WAR, ALONG WITH THE ANTICHRIST'S WORLDWIDE SUPPRESSION & PERSECUTION OF ALL WHO REFUSE TO WORSHIP HIM, will make this Great Tribulation period a time of trouble such as the World has never known! That's why God, in His Word, repeatedly tells us how long this period of Great Tribulation will last--exactly 3-1/2 years, or 42 months, or 1260 days from the time that the Antichrist sets up his Image in the Temple--to encourage us to hang on & keep going for Him! (Dan.12:1; Mt.24:21,22; Dan.7:25; 9:27; 12:7; Rev.11:2,3; 12:6,14; 13:5.)

       12. BECAUSE AT THE END OF THAT LAST 3-1/2 YEARS, JUST WHEN THE FIENDISH ANTICHRIST THINKS HE HAS THE WORLD IN HIS GRASP, suddenly--BOOM!--like a bolt from the blue, Jesus will return & snatch all of His children out of this World! Just after that darkest night in World History we are going to have the brightest dawn!--Jesus is going to come back & rescue His Own, His Church, His people, everyone who loves Him & knows Him & has Him in their hearts! (Mt.24:29-31)

       13. ALL OF THE CHRISTIANS WHO HAVE ALREADY DIED & GONE ON TO BE WITH JESUS will come back with Him to pick up their new resurrection bodies!--And "the Earth shall cast out her dead!" (Isa.26:19) Then we who are alive & remain, having miraculously survived & kept witnessing for Jesus throughout the Antichrist's reign of terror, will instantly be changed, transformed, as we receive our new, miraculous, powerful, supernatural, resurrection bodies--just like Jesus' body after He was resurrected!--And up we'll sail towards the sky, "to meet the Lord in the air: & so shall we ever be with the Lord!" (1Th.4:14-17; 1Co.15:51-57; Ph.3:21)

       14. ALL OF OUR ANTI-CHRIST ENEMIES WILL BE SHOCKED AS THEY SEE THE LORD COMING IN THE CLOUDS of Heaven with power & great glory, lighting up the whole sky like permanent lightning!--The powers of the Heavens shaken!--The Lord descending with a great shout!--A terrific blast on the trumpet of God!--Graves of the saints bursting open as the dead are raised!--And all of God's children who are still alive transformed before their eyes, flying upwards to meet Jesus! "Every eye shall see Him & all the kindreds of the Earth shall wail because of Him!" (Mt.24:27-31; Rev.1:7)

       15. JESUS WILL COME BACK TO CATCH HIS BRIDE, HIS CHURCH, OUT OF THE EVIL CLUTCHES OF THE ENEMY & then whisk us away to the grandest, most glorious & thrilling wedding party that's ever been held, the great Marriage Supper of the Lamb in Heaven! Then, right after the Lord rescues & raptures us to be with Him, the horrific Seven Vials of the great Wrath of God are going to be poured out upon the Antichrist & his people in horrible, terrible plagues such as the World has never known! (Rev.19:6-9; 14:14-20; 16:11-21.)

       16. GOD'S GONNA POUR OUT HIS JUDGEMENTS & HORRORS & WRATH UPON THE ANTICHRIST & HIS FORCES to punish & sock it to'm with what they deserve!--Until the final Wrath of all, when the wicked gather together at Armageddon in Israel to try to fight the very forces of God. Then Jesus Himself, along with His resurrected, glorified, Heavenly forces, will return to Earth again on majestic white chargers out of Heaven to utterly defeat & destroy the Antichrist & his forces in the supernatural, catastrophic Battle of Armageddon! (Rev.19:11-21; 17:14; 16:12-21.)

       17. THEN WE, THE SAINTS OF GOD, ALONG WITH OUR KING JESUS CHRIST, WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD & ORGANISE IT & RULE IT & RUN IT THE WAY IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RUN if man had yielded to God! We're going to set up the Kingdom of God on Earth & restore the Earth to the beauty of the Garden of Eden again! This amazing period will last for one thousand years & therefore it is known as The Millennium! (Dan.2:44; 7:18,26,27; Rev.20:4.)

       18. 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) Jesus also promised to His faithful ones, "He that overcometh, & keepeth My works unto the End, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron." (Rev.2:26,27)

       19. THE DEVIL WILL BE BOUND & CAST AS A PRISONER INTO THE BOTTOMLESS PIT FOR THIS THOUSAND-YEAR PERIOD, & God is going to be supreme & Jesus will reign from shore to shore & we will rule & reign with Him!--And wicked man will be forced to do what's right & forced to obey for a thousand years! Then & only then, under the supreme & powerful rule & reign of Christ & God's children, will all wars finally cease & the World will at last be governed fairly & well with true justice, liberty, peace, plenty & happiness for all! (Rev.20:1-3; Isa.2:2-4; Ps.22:27,28; 42:2,3,7,8.)

       20. THE CURSE WILL BE PARTIALLY LIFTED, which will mean a lot of different & better conditions.--The Earth will be like it was during the days of Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden! "And nothing shall hurt nor destroy in all His holy Kingdom!"--No more stinking automobiles belching fumes, nor big smokey smoke-belching factories! The World is going to go back to animal transportation & carriages & wagons & beautiful, majestic, wind-powered sailing vessels! (Isa.11:6-9; 65:20-25)

       21. DURING THE MILLENNIUM, WE--THE BORN-AGAIN, SAVED, RESURRECTED SAINTS--WILL BE IN OUR NEW SUPERNATURAL BODIES, with amazing miraculous powers such as indestructibility, no pain, sickness or death, but power to destroy enemies at a thought or a glance or a motion, the abilities to appear & disappear, fly, change our appearance into inscrutable disguises to spy on our enemies & invade their most secret hide-outs & even their very thoughts with our mind-reading ability & x-ray eyes to see through walls & across vast stretches of distance to detect their plans & operations! Meanwhile we can communicate with each other by mental telepathy without speaking a word, even over great distances etc., whereas our enemies will have none of these advantages, so it will be fairly easy to rule over them with the wisdom, power, justice & love of Jesus & His personal leadership!

       22. BUT THE REST OF THE WORLD, those who have been spared & blessed enough to survive into the Millennium, are going to still be in their old natural bodies. Everyone on Earth will see God's glorious power & Kingdom & everybody will believe then! So there won't be any unbelievers, but I'm afraid there will still be some unreceivers who won't yield & won't obey & will still be stubborn & rebellious & defiant! (Hab.2:14; Isa.25:7; 29:18,19; 32:1;40:5.)

       23. THEREFORE, AS A FINAL TEST & A FINAL SIFTING, AT THE END OF THE MILLENNIUM SATAN IS GOING TO BE RELEASED FROM HIS PRISON in the heart of the Earth for a "little season", just long enough to deceive the unconverted wicked over whom we have been ruling with a rod of iron. These rebels will again follow him to the full, in open rebellion against the Lord & His Government, resulting in the catastrophic Battle of Gog & Magog in which God is so fed up with them that He just sends down fire out of Heaven to devour them completely! (Isa.26:9-11; Rev.20:7-10.)

       24. IN FACT, HE WILL CAUSE SUCH A HORRIBLE FIRE TO COME DOWN THAT IT WILL COMPLETELY WIPE OUT THE ENTIRE SURFACE OF THE EARTH & the heavens shall be rolled back like a scroll & depart with a great noise! It's all going to explode & be burned up, & the entire surface of the ball is going to be completely purged, cleansed, burned up & recreated into a beautiful New Earth! (2Pe.3:10-13)

       25. AFTER THIS CLIMACTIC BATTLE OF GOG & MAGOG, all the unsaved of all ages will be resurrected for the final Great White Throne Judgement! All of the unsaved dead will finally be raised to stand before God Himself in the final Judgement in which "the books are opened", & they will all be given their final sentences according to their works & will be assigned to their final places in the hereafter. (Rev.20:11-15)

       26. GOD'S GREAT HEAVENLY SPACE CITY WILL THEN DESCEND FROM ABOVE TO THE BEAUTIFUL, RECREATED, GARDEN-OF-EDEN-LIKE NEW EARTH!--And God Himself will dwell with us right here on Earth! It will be like God taking over the World by invading it from Outer Space--bringing down His Heavenly City & restoring Himself as the King of kings forever! This great Space City is 1,500 miles long, 1,500 miles wide & 1,500 miles high!--The greatest space vehicle ever created, the most wonderful Spaceship ever conceived, built by the Lord & on its way down to Earth now! (Rev.21:All!)

       27. THE ENTIRE "CITY IS PURE GOLD, LIKE UNTO CLEAR GLASS"! (Rev.21:18) It's like clear golden-coloured glass, a beautiful crystal gold! So you'll be able to see out of the City through those transparent walls, out onto a beautiful, fully-restored & recreated New Earth which will be populated by new nations & kings & peoples who shall truly have learned the righteousness, goodness & love of God, even though they be outside the Golden City & its jewelled walls! (Rev.21:1,24-26)

       28. IT WILL BE A BETTER WORLD THEN WITH BETTER PEOPLE WHO WILL HAVE LEARNED THEIR LESSONS OF THE LAW OF THE LOVE OF GOD & will be happier than ever before, because at last they will be purged & purified of their sins of rebellion against Him & healed by the leaves of the Trees of Life which we shall minister to them from where they grow by the River of Life within the City! (Rev.22:1,2)

       29. ONLY THE MOST WICKED OF ALL, SUCH AS SATAN, THE ANTICHRIST, HIS FALSE PROPHET & THEIR MOST ARDENT FOLLOWERS, will remain in the Lake of Fire to be punished & purged of their diabolical rebelliousness as long as God sees fit, even until such a time as they, too, may have learned their lessons sufficiently for God to forgive them & restore His entire Creation to its original perfection where all is well! (Rev.21:8; 22:14,15; Ph.2:10,11; 1Ti.2:4; Eph.1:10.)

       30. SOME OF THIS MAY BE A SHOCK TO YOU, BUT IT'S THE TRUTH OF GOD'S WORD! YOU CAN READ IT IN THE BIBLE FOR YOURSELF IF YOU WISH, if you truly want to know the things that will shortly come to pass & if you hunger for the righteousness of God & thirst for His living waters that bring Eternal Life through His Love & the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ! For He has promised that if you do, you too shall be filled & satisfied to overflowing upon others who need Him also! Hallelujah! (Jn.5:29; Ac.17:11; Mt.5:6.)

       31. SO IF YOU WANT A NEW WORLD & A NEW LIFE UNDER A NEW GOOD GOVERNMENT BY GOD HIMSELF & WOULD EVEN LIKE TO HELP RUN IT WITH PEACE & PLENTY & HAPPINESS FOR ALL, why not ask Jesus into your heart today & join us now & work with us to tell the World of His Love & show them from the Bible what a wonderful World it's going to be with your own happy smiling face & heavenly living together in love, a present-day sample of the Heaven to come! (Jn.1:12; Rev.3:20; Mt.5:16.)

       32. PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE TODAY BY RECEIVING JESUS NOW! Simply pray, "Lord Jesus, please come into my heart & forgive me for all my sins. Help me to love & live for You, to hunger for Your Truth, to learn Your Word & to tell others about Your Love.--In Jesus' name, amen."--Amen? God bless you!
