              Like a mighty boomerang from the hand of its Maker, Halley's Comet sliced through our lives and then returned to the hand of Him that flung it in 1986! The appearance of this great Comet every 76 years has always heralded or signalled some major change or event, from the conquest of England by William the Conqueror in 1066 A.D., to the Inquisition, Genghis Khan, the discovery of the New World, etc.! The ancient Jewish historian Josephus described Halley's Comet of 66 A.D. as a "sword of fire" hanging over Jerusalem, warning of its impending destruction, which took place four years later by the Roman legions!
       The appearance of Halley's Comet in 1910 immediately preceded World War I, the first terrible World War, and the toppling of most of the monarchies and ruling houses of Europe! God in His mercy sent the Comet just a short time before the War, no doubt to try to shake up the people and warn them that they were headed the wrong way. He was trying to cause them to look skyward, upward at His handwriting in the sky, to warn them that something very horrible was about to happen! The arrival of Halley's Comet in 1986 presaged events that are even more earthshaking!
       On this Poster we see God pictured in His Throne Room, His Control Centre, where He, the Father, and His Son, Jesus, and His precious Holy Spirit are peering into the "Sea of Glass" (Rev.15:2) through which they view the Universe!--He is pictured in the Bible as a loving Heavenly Father concerned about His children on Earth. He is the great invisible Basic Power and Guiding Light of the Universe, Who has created all things. And He pictures His Holy Spirit as a Mother, an ideal comparison, as She is the Comforter, the Spirit of Love, the Mother-figure of the Trinity. After all, when God created Man, He said, "Let Us make Man in Our image, after Our likeness. So male and female created He them!" (Gen.1:26,27; Prov.3:13-18; 8:1-32)
       God works in mysterious ways His wonders to perform, and He works systematically, beautifully and orderly. He can easily foresee the events of the World and the order in which they will happen, and if He chooses to send a Comet as His messenger every 76 years, every lifetime, to predict or warn or presage a new major Earthshaking event, that's His business! And though He hates to see Man's wars and cruelties and inhumanity to Man, and He is soon going to step in and set things right, He hasn't yet because to do so would mean putting a stop to Man's free will and choice, which is the main reason we're here!--But He does warn us!
       So what did Halley's Comet herald in 1986?--Well, according to all that we read in Bible prophecy, and according to a number of revelations that God has given to us personally, the last seven years of Man's history and reign on Earth is due to begin very soon! Countless "Signs of the Times", Bible prophecies that indicate when the Time of the End is upon us, have already been fulfilled, and the one major sign that is yet to be fulfilled is what we believe this Comet is heralding!
       This important and final sign of the very End that many Bible prophets 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 World scene with a 7-year agreement or Covenant in which he will promise the World peace and religious freedom. He will somehow settle the current crisis in the Mid-East by working out a compromise between the Arabs and the Jews, enabling the Jews to rebuild their Temple on Mt. Moriah, Jerusalem, where their ancient Temple once stood and near where the Muslim "Dome of the Rock" Mosque stands today. (Dan.8:23-25; 2Th.2:1-4; Dan.9:27)
       During the first half of the Antichrist's 7-year reign, people are going to think that he is wonderful, as he will have brought a measure of peace, restored the World's shattered 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, and forbid and abolish all traditional religious worship, declaring, "I am God!--Fall down and worship me!" (Dan.9:27; 8:9-12; 11:21-24,28-31,36; 2Th.2:3,4,8,9)
       At this time he will place an Idol, an Image of himself, in the rebuilt Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. The Bible calls this Idol the "Abomination of Desolation", which will probably be some kind of a computerised robot, as it will speak and 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)
       During this final 3-1/2 year period, people won't use paper money anymore because the Antichrist World Government is going to set up a One-World Credit System, and everyone who rejects God and worships this Antichrist will be permanently branded with a credit number in his hand or forehead, without which he can neither buy nor sell! This will bring on 3-1/2 years of terrible persecution of members of all religions: Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc.--Anyone who refuses to worship the Antichrist or take his Mark will be hunted and persecuted! (Rev.13:14-18)
       The famous French prophet, Nostradamus, also foresaw this return of Halley's Comet. He wrote of the year of its return, "Saturn and Mars are equally fiery, the air is very dry, a long meteor! Of people and beasts shall be a horrible destruction! Blood, thirst, famine, when the Comet shall run! Distress from fire in the sky! There is a very great drought. A great famine do I see drawing near, turning from one way to another and becoming Universal.--A famine so great and so long that man shall become a man-eater!"
       The "great famine" that Nostradamus foresaw is no doubt the great economic Crash which we have been predicting by the Word of the Lord for decades! In fact, it's a miracle that the World's dollar-based economic system hasn't collapsed already! The World is already completely bankrupt and so in debt that they'll never get out of it, and the whole thing is only being supported by people's faith in worthless paper money! It's just a matter of time until they wake up and realise it.--Then...Crash!
       And when the World's economy crashes, there will be worldwide famine such as has never been known before!--Because when their economy has crashed, their money is worthless, and suddenly all government hand-outs to the poor are stopped, the garbage collectors, the bus drivers, the truck drivers, the electrical workers, the water and sewer workers all stop receiving pay and stop working, can you imagine what conditions will be like in most of the huge, wicked, over-crowded cities of America and Europe?--Great Confusion! They'll know they're sunk and need to be saved!
       And according to God's Word, they'll then turn to this false saviour to save them! They'll be willing to sell their souls to save themselves and their System, and it will be the ideal opportunity for the Antichrist to rise and make himself known, to come to the front as the Saviour of the World!
       Then, in desperation, to save themselves from economic collapse--which they will probably have already suffered--and from the total destruction of impending nuclear war--which he and his peace Covenant will be able to prevent--they'll put into his hands the total government of the World, total control, to save themselves, restore order, bring peace and keep from blowing themselves up!
       Jesus said that the last 3-1/2 years of the Antichrist's reign would be "A time of trouble such as was not since the beginning of the World, no, nor ever shall be!" (Mt.24:21)--The World will experience the most Hell and horror under the bestial Antichrist that they've ever known! Although while he consolidates his power during the first half of his 7-year reign it will be fairly peaceful, that last 3-1/2 years will be a time of tribulation, wars, atomic war, persecution of those who refuse to worship the Antichrist and the judgements of God on the Antichrist's forces!
       Despite all of this, God's saved children will have the most Heaven they've ever known!--Heavenly power and defense and help and protection! That last 3-1/2 years will be a time of miracles for God's children, as the Lord protects and keeps us until the very End, when Jesus will return to rescue us and save the World from total destruction! (Dan.11:32b)
       For, exactly 3-1/2 years after the fiendish Antichrist breaks his Covenant and erects his Image in Jerusalem, demanding that all the World worship him and receive his Mark, suddenly--BOOM!--like a bolt from the blue, Jesus will return in the clouds "with power and great glory", and the tremendous, supernatural, "resurrection of life" will take place!--All the saved who were dead will come to life and all of the saved who are still alive will be raised into the air to meet Jesus in the clouds! (Mt.24:29-31; 1Thes.4:16,17)
       He's going to say, "Stop the World! I want'm to get off!" And all of God's children are going to be caught up together with Him in the clouds! We will rise in immortal victory over the forces of the Devil and the Antichrist, right before the eyes of our enemies, out of their reach forever as we rise to be with Jesus! God will then pour out His wrath and judgements on the Antichrist's forces, culminating in the horrific Battle of Armageddon, when we return with the Lord to wipe out our enemies and take over the World and establish true "peace on Earth" at last! (Mt.24:21,29-31)
       Are you ready for these soon-coming, Earth-shaking, cataclysmic, End-time events? As the World watched Halley's Comet in 1759, Harvard's John Winthrop declared in his scientific lectures: "Such appearances rouse mankind and awaken their attention to the Supreme Governor of the Universe, whom they would be in danger of totally forgetting were nature always to glide along with uniform tenor! These exotic stars raise in our minds the sublime conception of God!"
       Halley's Comet has visited us again! Did it cause you to think about God and His destiny for you and the World? This Heavenly messenger has heralded the rise of the Hellish Antichrist and his One-World Government!--Will you be one of those who will fall down and worship this Devil-in-the-flesh and receive his soul-damning "Mark of the Beast" to try to save your own skin?--Or are you one of God's saved children who loves Jesus and will have the power of God to resist and defy these forces of the Devil?--The choice is up to you! The time to get ready is now, and the way to get ready is to ask God's Son, Jesus, into your heart!
       Prepare for these soon-coming events by receiving Jesus now! He says, "Behold, I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock; If any man hear My voice and open the door, I will come into him!" Receive Jesus now by praying this simple prayer: "Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God and that You died for me. Please forgive me for all my sins and come into my heart. Help me to love and follow You and to share Your Love with others. In Jesus' name, I pray, amen." God bless you!
