       1. YOU WILL PROBABLY BE SURPRISED TO HEAR THAT THIS BEAUTIFUL POSTER IS NOT JUST SOMEONE'S IMAGINATION or dream or a fairy tale, but a true picture of what the World will really be like very soon!--Probably within the next ten years!
       2. FOR THE BIBLE PREDICTS THAT A VERY BIG CHANGE IS COMING, as Jesus Christ will soon return to put an end to man's cruel & destructive kingdoms on Earth & to supernaturally gather together all of His saved children, instantly giving them powerful new resurrection bodies!
       3. THEN JESUS & ALL OF GOD'S SAVED CHILDREN WHO HAVE EVER LIVED, WHO HAVE BEEN RAISED FROM THE DEAD BY THIS TIME, WILL TAKE OVER THIS WORLD & set up the Kingdom of God on Earth for 1,000 years!--This time is known as the Millennium! The Devil & all of his followers will have been removed & the surviving peoples of the Earth will then have the blessing of living under the most perfect, righteous & fair Government the World has ever known!
       4. THEN & ONLY THEN, UNDER THE ALL-POWERFUL RULE & REIGN OF CHRIST & GOD'S CHILDREN, will all wars finally cease & men will "beat their swords into plowshares & their spears into pruninghooks" & "they shall learn war no more!" (Isa.2:4)
       5. DURING THIS 1,000-YEAR PERIOD, THE BIBLE TELLS US THAT THE EARTH WILL BE A BEAUTIFUL HEAVENLY PARADISE, the restored Garden of Eden! Man will live in beauty & plenty & peace, like God planned for him to live in the beginning in the Garden of Eden before he disobeyed & sinned & brought the Curse upon himself & the Earth!
       6. HOW DID GOD PLAN FOR MAN TO LIVE IN THE BEGINNING?--Well for one thing, we know that Adam & Eve were stark naked!--They didn't even know what clothes & coverings were, but were perfectly happy being beautifully nude, fully enjoying life & love & sex & each other, just the way God planned! It wasn't until after they sinned that they began covering up!
       7. AND SINCE THE CLIMATE WAS PERFECT, THEY NOT ONLY FOR FOOD, THEY SIMPLY PICKED THEIR MEALS OF DELICIOUS FRESH FRUIT RIGHT OFF OF THE TREES! (Gen.1:29) Just think, there was no cooking, no need for fires, no wood-gathering, no fuel, no meal preparation, no table setting, no dishes, no kitchen cleaning--in fact, no kitchen!--No clothes-making nor weaving, mending, washing or ironing!--They were dressed by God in their beautiful birthday suits! And this is how the World will be again real soon!
       8. DURING THE MILLENNIUM, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT "NOTHING SHALL HURT NOR DESTROY IN ALL OF GOD'S HOLY KINGDOM!" (Isa.11:9) There will be no cruel beasts or poisonous insects or serpents or vipers or scorpions or any such pests. Neither will there be any more thorns, thistles, weeds or poisonous plants, which came as part of the Curse because of the Fall of Man. (Gen.3:17,18)
       9. IN THE DAYS OF THE GARDEN OF EDEN, THERE WEREN'T ANY POISONOUS OR DANGEROUS CREATURES!--Adam & Eve could lie down & sleep or make love right on the grass, without worrying about mosquitoes or flies or spiders or scorpions or snakes or any infecting worms that bother us nowadays. If there were any of those insects or pests then, they were all the friends of man!--They weren't poisonous & they didn't bite!
       10. THE LORD EVEN SAYS THAT DURING THIS WONDERFUL 1,000-YEAR PERIOD, THE LION WILL LIE DOWN WITH THE LAMB & THE LEOPARD WITH THE BABY GOAT!--And the cow & the bear shall eat grass together & their young will lie down together, & a little child shall lead them! (Isa.11:6,7) Man & beast will no longer need to eat meat, & all will be at peace with each other! Even a little child will be able to lead the formerly wild beasts around, playing with the lions & tigers & leopards & elephants as pets!
       11. IN THAT DAY YOU'LL BE ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE "PLEASURES OF PARADISE" TO THE FULL!--Like the lovely couple on this poster, you'll be able to wade into the lakes & ponds without any of today's worry about broken glass, pollution, poisonous snakes, spiders, insects, crocodiles or alligators! All such dangerous pests will be no more!--Or else, if they do remain, they'll be our pets!--Not pests! (Isa.11:8)
       12. THERE WILL ALSO BE VERY LITTLE, IF ANY, DISEASE OR SICKNESS, because the Bible says that if somebody dies when he's 100 years old, he'll still be considered a child! (Is.65:20) It will take much, much longer for people to grow old, & they will again live nearly a thousand years, as they did in the days before the Flood!
       13. BUT REMEMBER, DURING THIS TIME, ALL OF GOD'S SAVED CHILDREN WILL ALREADY HAVE RECEIVED THEIR NEW ETERNAL SUPER-BODIES THAT WILL NEVER DIE! And they will be ruling with Jesus over all of the millions, perhaps even billions, of normal mortal, spared human beings who will be taught God's ways during the Millennium.
       14. ARE YOU ONE OF THE SAVED WHO HAS THE BRIGHTEST & HAPPIEST FUTURE TO LOOK FORWARD TO, ruling & reigning with Jesus as one of His supernatural supermen or superwomen during this wonderful time?--If you're not sure, you can be sure by receiving Jesus into your heart right now!
       15. JUST PRAY THIS SIMPLE PRAYER: "Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. I believe that You are the Son of God & that You died for me & I now open the door of my heart & ask You, Jesus, to please come in & give me Your free Gift of eternal Heavenly life. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
