—"Even Now, the Skies are Red, Red with Warning!"
(Compiled by Apollos from the writings of Father David.)
1. FROM ALL THAT WE CAN SEE IN GOD'S WORD & BIBLE PROPHECY, THERE'S SOON GOING TO BE A VERY GREAT WAR, an atomic war, a war that will almost annihilate one–third of all mankind!* There will be great chaos & great confusion as a result of this tremendous nuclear exchange‚ which God's Word says will end the next World War within one day.—In fact, the worst of it will be over within one hour!
2. RECENT EVENTS & DEVELOPMENTS ARE RAPIDLY DRAWING US MUCH CLOSER TO THIS HORRIBLE NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST! There have been a number of indications that the U.S., under its current very militant & hawkish administration, is definitely planning on war.—They seem to be convinced that it's unavoidable & that even nuclear war is not unthinkable, that the only solution to the present World ideological conflict between East & West, North & South, haves & have-nots, rich & poor, Capitalists & Communists‚ is war!
3. THE U.S., UNDER ITS PRESENT BELLIGERENT PRESIDENT, IS WORKING LIKE MAD, voting billions more for arms & weaponry to try to get on a par with Russia in hopes, no doubt, of emerging victorious from the coming atomic showdown. These colossuses, these mighty giants, these superpowers are on a course of head-on collision with each other, & both are convinced that the only solution is direct conflict, direct confrontation. Despite many appeals & pleas for peace—particularly from the East & the "have-nots"—the Capitalist West of "haves" seems determined not to make peace if it means they have to share or surrender any of their wealth or riches or power.
4. BUT BEFORE DELVING INTO A DETAILED ANALYSIS OF CURRENT AMERICAN/SOVIET POLITICAL POLICIES, NUCLEAR WEAPONRY, WAR PREPARATIONS, ETC.‚ in order for you to fully grasp & understand why this terrible nuclear war must come & who the victors & losers will be, we're going to swing back to a cold December night in 1962! * For the latest, most recent revelations & prophetic details on when the Atom War will occur, see the next section of this book, "More Thoughts On The Atom War & "The Great Confusion"!
THE MESSAGE OF JEREMIAH!
5. I WAS PRACTICALLY DYING IN MIAMI, FLORIDA, IN THAT WINTER OF '62 & I was seriously considering the prospect of possibly departing from this life, wondering if the Lord was through with me & if I could now graduate & be released. I asked the Lord, "Is my work finished or is there something else You want me to do? And if so, Lord, what do You want me to do? What is the message You want me to bear?" And as clearly as the Lord has ever spoken to my heart—& He's never deceived me—as clearly as anything, I saw the prophet Jeremiah pleading with ancient Jerusalem to repent!
6. THE LORD SPOKE TO MY HEART THAT THE MESSAGE OF JEREMIAH TO ISRAEL IN HER LAST DAYS BEFORE HER FALL IS THE MESSAGE FOR AMERICA TODAY IN HER LAST DAYS BEFORE SHE FALLS! The message that God definitely gave to me was the Message of Jeremiah! So I said, "Alright‚ Lord, You raise me up & I'll try to pass it on."—& immediately He began to strengthen me, & as I sat up in bed & grabbed my Bible, it fell open directly to the first page of the Book of Jeremiah!
7. AND WHEN I BEGAN READING JEREMIAH I REALISED WHAT AN AMAZING & REMARKABLE PARALLEL IT WAS!—THE WHOLE THING!—America today is so like Israel was in the days before her fall: Decadent, hypocritical, pretending to be close to God, worshipping Him with their lips but with their hearts far from Him (Mt.15:8,9)‚ pretending to be a Godly nation, claiming to be God's people, & yet more wicked than all the other nations around her!
8. "THEN THE LORD SAID UNTO ME, OUT OF THE NORTH AN EVIL SHALL BREAK FORTH UPON ALL THE INHABITANTS OF THE LAND." (Jer.1:14.) The shortest distance to Russia from the U.S. is straight due North across the North Pole.—The message of Jeremiah is so almost literally word–for-word applicable & true of America's situation today that it's truly remarkable!—Shockingly so!
9. "AND I WILL UTTER MY JUDGEMENTS AGAINST THEM TOUCHING ALL THEIR WICKEDNESS, WHO HAVE FORSAKEN ME, & have burned incense unto other gods, & worshipped the works of their own hands." (Jer.1:16.) Now if they'd never known anything about the Lord, they couldn't forsake Him, right? So the sin of America today, as it was in ancient Israel's day‚ is that she had the Light, but has forsaken the Light, forsaken the Lord, & gone worshipping after other idols.
10. THE U.S. WAS ESTABLISHED AS A COUNTRY THAT REALLY HAD THE GOSPEL & KNEW SALVATION. Its early settlers were true genuine saved Christians who really knew the Lord, but in only 200 years of history they have gone so downhill righteousness-wise & religion-wise that today, officially‚ if you judge by its Constitution‚ its laws & its school system‚ it is just as atheistic, anti-God, anti-Christ & anti–Bible as Russia!
11. ANY NATION WHICH MAKES IT ILLEGAL & UNLAWFUL TO TEACH GOD & THE BIBLE & CREATION & CHRIST in its official public schools, which their children are forced to attend by compulsory education laws, & which the parents are forced to support by compulsory taxation, is just as anti-God, anti-Christ, anti-religion & atheistic as Communist Russia!
12. AND THE HORROR OF IT IS THAT THE U.S. CLAIMS TO BE CHRISTIAN!—Russia's officially, openly, honestly anti-Christ, anti-God‚ anti-religion. But America claims to be Christian, claims to be religious, claims to believe in God, yet they've taken Christ & the Bible & prayer out of their schools & made them virtually illegal! And let me tell you right now, whatever you want for your children, that's what you are!—And they are now anti-Christ!
13. ALTHOUGH THE U.S. PUTS ON A PRETENCE & A HYPOCRITICAL VENEER OF BEING CHRISTIAN & PRETENDS TO BE BETTER THAN RUSSIA‚ in the eyes of God I frankly believe that the U.S. is more guilty than Russia because she's had more Light, more Gospel, more genuine Christianity in the past, & therefore is more responsible! America is worse than Russia because she pretends to be religious & she pretends to believe in God & she pretends to be Christian when she's not!
14. THEY MAKE A GREAT SHOW OF HYPOCRITICAL SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS in pretending to be better than Russia, better than the U.S.S.R., much better than "those horrible Red Communists", when they themselves are even worse because they've had so much Light & they've known the Truth & have now rejected it! While Americans claim, "We are Christians, a great Christian nation, & we're more righteous than anybody else on the face of the Earth!", they have carried on absolutely monstrous, vicious, fiendish, hellish wars, burning babies & murdering mothers & almost totally wrecking entire poor little countries like those in Indochina!
15. IN FACT‚ SINCE THE VIETNAM WAR & WATERGATE & THE CIA SCANDALS & ALL THE VARIOUS BRIBERY SCANDALS, ETC., THE WHOLE WORLD HAS BEGUN TO WAKE UP & LOSE CONFIDENCE IN THE ONCE-GREAT U.S.A.! Not only has America's decadence been exposed by her soldiers abroad & their violence & their filth & their depravity & their drugs & their drunkenness, but even America's highest leadership‚ from the President on down, has been exposed & America's been discredited, shown to be corrupt & crooked & cruel & horrible in every way! So that now virtually the whole World has got its eyes open & realises that America is no longer the champion of the poor & the free, but rather that the U.S. is now corrupt at home & sympathises with & supports the most undemocratic, dictatorial & oppressive totalitarian governments of the rich & the imperialistic oppressors of the poor abroad!
16. "WHO WORSHIP THE WORKS OF THEIR OWN HANDS." (Jer.1:16.) What are Americans crazy about today?—Go in debt for today?—On time-payments for today?—Idols!—All kinds of luxuries, electronic equipment, beautiful luxurious homes, gorgeous million–dollar church buildings, all kinds of things they don't need!—Things, things, things‚ things! What does the average American spend most of his time & money on?—"The works of his own hands!"—Making either idols or the weapons of war to defend & keep those idols!
17. AMERICA TODAY DOES NOT WORSHIP GOD!—AMERICA WORSHIPS MONEY & THINGS! They have not only officially, by Supreme Court law‚ ruled & cast Jesus Christ & the Bible & prayer & all religion out of the government & out of the public schools & out of all government agencies, but even the average so-called "Christian" doesn't really worship God in America today!—He worships his good job, he worships his family, he worships his car‚ he worships his television. What's he living for? What does he spend most of his time & money on? What's he working for?—The works of his own hands: Worshipping the works of his own hands! He gives it most of his time, his devotion & his strength—the works of his own hands!
18. JESUS HIMSELF SAID, "NO MAN CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS. For either he will hate the one, & love the other; or else he will hold to the one, & despise the other. Ye cannot serve God & mammon!" (Mt.6:24.) Let's face it, the vast majority of Americans today are worshipping Mammon‚ which Webster's dictionary says is "material wealth" or money & materialism & things! And not just for an hour on Sunday morning!—They are worshipping money eight hours a day & slaving for it & serving it six days a week! America's gigantic skyscrapers are her temples of money, temples to the great god Mammon, where his devotees come within the temple gates every morning, & from nine to five are busy scurrying about, waiting on & serving hand-&-foot their great god, Mammon!
19. "HATH A NATION CHANGED HER GODS, WHICH ARE YET NO GODS? My people have changed their glory for that which doth not profit. For My people have committed two evils; they have forsaken Me‚ the fountain of Living Waters, & have hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water!" (Jer.2:11‚13.) The message through Jeremiah was a message to a decadent nation of God, a people who had forgotten their God & turned to other idols, & who were therefore in line for God's severest judgements. He pours out His worst chastisements upon His Own people, even more than upon the heathen, because His Own people had the Light but rebelled against it.
20. "I WILL BRING EVIL FROM THE NORTH & A GREAT DESTRUCTION. The lion is come up from his thicket, & the destroyer of the Gentiles is on his way; he is gone forth from his place to make thy land desolate; & thy cities shall be laid waste, without an inhabitant." (Jer.4:6,7.)—This is the message for America today! And considering the incredible destructive power of the missiles & warheads that are at this moment targeted on American cities from the North, it's easy to see how this awesome prediction of destruction will soon be fulfilled, just as it was in Israel of old!
21. "O LORD, ARE NOT THINE EYES OPEN UPON THE TRUTH? Thou hast stricken them, but they have not grieved; Thou hast consumed them, but they have refused to receive correction: They have made their faces harder than a rock; they have refused to return." (Jer.5:3.) What's America's sin?—She is hard-hearted & refuses to repent. "Take away her battlements"—all the missiles & the armaments that America has today—"for they are not of the Lord!" (Jer.5:10.) Their missiles & thermonuclear warheads are not God's defences!—These won't save them!
22. "AS A CAGE IS FULL OF BIRDS‚ SO ARE THEIR HOUSES FULL OF DECEIT." This is America! "Therefore they are become great, & waxen rich. They are waxen fat, they shine: Yea, they overpass the deeds of the wicked." A nation simply can't go on robbing the poor to give to the rich, & get away with it. But that's exactly what the American economy has been doing for years! "They judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless, yet they prosper; & the right of the needy do they not judge." (Jer.5:27,28.) It's America's own selfishness & blindness to the needs of the rest of the World that's caused much of the World's problems today.
23. "SHALL I NOT VISIT FOR THESE THINGS, SAITH THE LORD? SHALL NOT MY SOUL BE AVENGED UPON SUCH A NATION AS THIS?" (Jer.5:29.)—Indeed He shall!—As the Lord told us back in 1962, "For she hath not heeded the cry of the poor, nor hath her ear been open to the cry of the needy. For she hath gone her own way & the way of the wicked, & she hath no love for Me! Therefore is now her hour come, & her cup of iniquity is full, & I will judge this evil Nation!" Before long the World will realise that the God America once stood for is not dead‚ & He is going to punish His people as an example to the World.
24. "A WONDERFUL & HORRIBLE THING IS COMMITTED IN THE LAND. THE PROPHETS PROPHESY FALSELY, & THE PRIESTS BEAR RULE BY THEIR MEANS; & My people love to have it so: & what will ye do in the end thereof?" (Jer.5:30,31.) There are none so blind as those that will not see! They want to be blind, they don't want to see! "My people love it so!" They like to hear their false prophets & they like to have their big fat wealthy smooth-talking preachers who are smart businessmen, who bear rule by their means, their money.
25. "THEY HAVE HEALED ALSO THE HURT OF THE DAUGHTER OF MY PEOPLE SLIGHTLY"—they've only just barely covered over the wound of her real problems, put a bandaid across a gaping‚ infected, open sore.—"Saying‚ Peace, Peace; when there is no peace!" (Jer.6:14.) The reason their peace-prophets & priests can't heal it is because they're lying to them, tickling their ears, telling them that everything's fine.
26. "THEREFORE PRAY NOT THOU FOR THIS PEOPLE, NEITHER LIFT UP CRY NOR PRAYER FOR THEM‚ NEITHER MAKE INTERCESSION TO ME: FOR I WILL NOT HEAR THEE." (Jer.7:16.) The Lord told Jeremiah, "There's no use praying for this nation, Jeremiah, they're too far gone! I won't even hear you." Likewise the Lord says today, "America's gone too far, I'm not even going to hear their prayers!" God will not hear the prayers of a disobedient people! "Though Moses & Samuel stood before Me, yet My mind could not be toward this people: Cast them out of My sight, & let them go forth!" (Jer.15:1.)
27. AMERICA HAS PASSED THE POINT OF NO RETURN! THE JUDGEMENTS OF GOD ARE IMMINENTLY IMPENDING & she can no longer escape. It's a doomed country, destined for destruction for its sins because of the horrible destruction it has wreaked on other nations & the poor of the World, & because of its horrible wickedness which has led the World in the worst kinds of sexual perversions, horrible demonic music, depravity & violence in motion pictures, & atheism & evolution & all kinds of horrors!
28. "EVERYONE FROM THE LEAST EVEN UNTO THE GREATEST IS GIVEN TO COVETOUSNESS, from the prophet even unto the priest, everyone dealeth falsely. The harvest is past, the summer is ended, & we are not saved." (Jer.8:10,20.) The time for repentance & harvest is past, summer is ended. God's time for America is over & it's not saved, & it's not going to be saved! "For the pastors are become brutish, & have not sought the Lord: Therefore they shall not prosper, & all their flocks shall be scattered." (Jer.10:21.)
29. "THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL; BEHOLD‚ I WILL TURN BACK THE WEAPONS OF WAR THAT ARE IN YOUR HANDS."—All those missiles & weapons aren't going to do a bit of good.—"Wherewith ye fight against the King of Babylon."—Wherewith ye fight against your Communist enemies. "And I Myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand!" (Jer.21:4,5.) I wouldn't be surprised if the Lord let their own bombs fall right back on their own heads!
30. AFTER ALL, THE SOWER IS THE ONE THAT HAS TO BE THE REAPER!—"For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap!" (Ga.6:7.) The United States created nuclear weapons: U.S. scientists invented them, U.S. technicians made them & it was U.S. aviators & military officials who used them on Hiroshima & Nagasaki & killed hundreds of thousands of people & maimed hundreds of thousands more in a horrible, horrendous, monstrous attack on the poor innocent civilians—old men, women & children—of two defenceless cities, defenceless against such weapons because they didn't even know they existed!
31. WHAT OTHER NATION HAS EVER DROPPED THE HORROR-BOMB ON HUGE CITIES, wiping out hundreds of thousands of people—men, women, children‚ babies, everything! What kind of monsters could wield such a bomb? What kind of fiends could develop such a weapon?—Devils!—A so–called Christian nation, Christian government!
32. GOD'S WORD SAYS, "WITH WHAT MEASURE YE METE OUT, IT SHALL BE METED UNTO YOU AGAIN." (Lk.6:38.) So what is the United States going to get in return‚ according to the laws of God?—Someday atomic bombs are going to be used against her! God's Word says that if you lift up the sword against others, they're going to lift up the sword against you. "He that lives by the sword shall die by the sword" (Mt.26:52; Rev.13:10), & he that uses the atomic bomb on others is going to get the atomic bomb used on him!—And that's exactly what's going to happen!
"WHY WILL YE DIE?"
33. NOW YOU'RE GOING TO HEAR SOME SHOCKING INFORMATION!—"Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I set before you the way of life, & the way of death. He that abideth in this city shall die by the sword, & by the famine, & by the pestilence." In other words, if you stay here & fight it out with the armies of Babylon, you're a dead duck!—If you fight the punishment that I have sent, you're a goner! "But he that goeth out, & falleth to the Chaldeans that besiege you, he shall live, & his life shall be unto him for a prey. For I have set My face against this city for evil, & not for good, saith the Lord: It shall be given into the hand of the King of Babylon, & he shall burn it with fire!" (Jer.21:8–10.)—This is the message that God told me was for America today!
34. AND JUST AS GOD RAISED UP NEBUCHADNEZZAR, the King of Babylon, & his powerful empire to chasten‚ judge & punish His Own people for their sins‚ so He has raised up a modern "King of Babylon" to punish America & the so-called "Christian" Western World for theirs! So America's going to be given into the hand of the King of Babylon‚ her enemies, & be burned with fire!
35. THE LORD SAYS, "NOW I HAVE GIVEN ALL THESE LANDS INTO THE HAND OF NEBUCHADNEZZAR THE KING OF BABYLON. And it shall come to pass, that the nation & kingdom which will not serve the same Nebuchadnezzar‚ the King of Babylon, & that will not put their neck under the yoke of the King of Babylon, that nation will I punish, saith the Lord, with the sword‚ & with the famine, & with the pestilence, until I have consumed them by his hand. Therefore hearken not ye to your prophets, nor to your diviners, nor to your dreamers, nor to your enchanters, nor to your sorcerers, which speak unto you, saying, Ye shall not serve the king of Babylon: For they prophesy a lie unto you, to remove you far from your land; & that I should drive you out, & ye should perish!" (Jer.27:6-10.)
36. THE SMARTEST THING THOSE JEWS COULD HAVE DONE WAS NOT TO REBEL AGAINST "THE POWERS THAT BE" (ROMANS 13) IN THE FIRST PLACE! That's what caused them all the trouble! That's why the Babylonians were down there besieging their cities, because they had flatly refused to pay tribute & refused to submit & obey the power which God had raised up & permitted to rule the World, to keep some decency & order.
37. SO GOD WARNED THEM & PLED WITH THEM & CRIED OUT TO ISRAEL‚ to the city of Jerusalem & its Jews—God cried out to them through the mouth of His prophet Jeremiah: "Why will ye die? Take the yoke of the King of Babylon & live! O why will ye die, O Jerusalem!" (Jer.27:13,11.) God was saying, "I'll give you one more chance: Surrender! You can still surrender, even the King of Babylon's telling you to surrender! That way you'll spare your city & your people."—"For the nations that bring their neck under the yoke of the King of Babylon, & serve him‚ those will I let remain still in their own land, saith the Lord: & they shall till it, & dwell therein." (Jer.27:11.)—But they still wouldn't do it!
38. THEY PREFERRED TO FIGHT & DIE, & THEY DID! And the city was destroyed along with two-thirds of the people, & the rest were made slaves! And that's exactly what America's headed for! And that's why the Lord said that His Message for America today is the Message of Jeremiah!—America has forsaken God & therefore God Himself is against America & is going to destroy her for her sins, just as He did Israel for hers!—And this time it looks like He's going to use the Russians to do it!
"GOD IS WITH US!"—Nikita Khrushchev
39. GOD HAS CHANGED SIDES & IS NO LONGER ON THE SIDE OF NOW WICKED AMERICA, BUT ON THE SIDE OF HER ENEMIES in order to judge her for her sins! And apparently Russia is going to be His instrument to sock it to her!—They will be His instrument, His sword of judgement & destruction‚ even as Nebuchadnezzar‚ whom the Lord referred to as "My Servant", (Jer.25:9) was His scourge against ancient Israel. And the places that need judgement the most are certainly going to get it!—Such as the U.S.‚ England, Germany & any other very pro-American areas‚ especially those which have allowed American bases on their soil!
40. THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS ONE OF THE LAST BASTIONS OF RESISTANCE, refusing to yield, refusing to bow & kowtow to this new "King of Babylon", refusing to share their wealth with the rest of the World & its poor, refusing to yield to the World Power that God has ordained to take over this World in its Last Days to punish its rich for their sins & their selfishness & their wickedness & their refusal to share with the rest of the World!
41. SHE REFUSES TO SURRENDER HER WEALTH TO THE POOR OF THE WORLD, refuses to share, but is selfishly luxuriating in all kinds of extravagance, opulence & luxuries—$10,000 bathtubs‚ $25,000 automobiles that guzzle gas like mechanical drunkards, gorging themselves with food & throwing half of it away, wasting over one-half of the World's priceless resources while millions are starving!
42. GOD HAS ALWAYS SHOWN HIMSELF TO BE ON THE SIDE OF THE POOR & AGAINST THE RICH, the tyrants & the despots‚ & has eventually always "destroyed them which destroy the Earth" (Rev.11:18), so He will just as surely destroy the American destroyers of the Earth & save the poor & the Earth they need! Whatsoever a nation soweth, that shall she also reap‚ & every nation that forgets God shall be turned into Hell on Earth & Hell hereafter!—So it won't be long now!
43. AMERICA IS ALREADY A DECLINING POWER WHILE RUSSIA & COMMUNISM ARE THE ASCENDANT POWERS TODAY, the great Red Beast inspired by the great Red Dragon, the Devil himself. (Rev.12,13.) This great Red Beast of Communism is taking over the World & the Antichrist will soon be its head, its leader.—Because nothing's stopping the Russians & nothing will! Only God can stop the Russians, but He doesn't want to‚ because He wants to use them to punish the Western World! He's made them smart enough now & strong enough to do it, & they're doing it!
44. RUSSIA'S ALREADY GOT AMERICAN FORCES OUT-NUMBERED, OUT-FLANKED, OUT-MANEUVERED, OUT-SMARTED, & OUT-ARMED & is constantly making progress all the time‚ because Russia has a plan, it has a goal, it knows where it's going & how to get there. Whereas the U.S. has arrived & they like the status quo‚ they just want to keep what they've already got!—And every great World Empire & nation & civilisation that has come to that point has then crumbled & rotted away in decadence, because they had plenty & luxury & everything they wanted—they ruled the World & everyone else was just their slave.—And this is the way America has treated the rest of the World for a good many years now!
45. SO GOD HAS RAISED UP THE RUSSIANS & THE COMMUNISTS AS A SCOURGE & A PUNISHMENT & A JUDGEMENT ON THE RICH WEST for its crimes & sins & selfish opulence!—And neither the President nor any other man could possibly save America now! Only Jesus could save her!—But they won't listen to Him, they've rejected Him! They wouldn't listen to us, & now they won't even listen to their own scientist prophets of doom, their own political prophets of doom‚ their own economic prophets of doom or their own military prophets of doom! All they want to hear are their peace prophets, their false peace prophets saying, "Peace, Peace!", when there is no Peace!
46. ONLY THE LORD CAN SOLVE AMERICA'S PROBLEMS. But He's not going to because they're not turning to Him for the solution! So He's going to let them go down the drain, which is the way they're headed & the way they want to go! I think Khrushchev was a prophet of God when he came to the U.S. & said, "God is with us & not you!"—Think of that! And God has said so in all the revelations He's given us & the Scriptures He's shown us. God's forsaken America because she's forsaken God!
NUCLEAR OUTBREAK & OUTCOME!
47. EXCEPT FOR A MIRACULOUS BREAKTHROUGH IN THE SO–CALLED "PEACE PROCESS", IT LOOKS LIKE THE WAR COULD COME VERY SOON, or I don't think the U.S. would be taking the action that it is regarding armaments, their belligerence in the peace talks, the building up of weapons of war‚ the further deployment of nuclear missiles throughout the World, hundreds more for Europe & other places, & the building of more nuclear subs & naval vessels & missiles & all of these horrendous toys that these grown-up boys are bound to play with.
48. I NEVER SAW A BOY THAT HAD A FIRE-CRACKER YET WHO DIDN'T LIGHT IT SOONER OR LATER! It's just too big a temptation to have the enjoyment of hearing it go "Bang!", even if it nearly blows his fingers off or his eyes out!—And it looks like that's what these boys are up to, in spite of a few sane heads in the World who have been begging them not to.—In spite of the anti–nuke movements & the demilitarisation movements, the disarmament movements which are gaining forces by the hundreds of thousands, if not millions!
49. THE U.S. ADMINISTRATION HAS PUBLICLY PLEDGED TO BECOME POWERFUL ENOUGH TO WIN A NUCLEAR WAR WITH RUSSIA. And it seems that Russia has become convinced that America is determined to wage an all-out nuclear war, knowing that's the only way she could possibly win. The U.S. can't win on the battlefield, she can't win with tactical nukes, she can't win with any other method than a first strike.—But even then it would be difficult for her to win because of her large target & her own concentrated area. She'd have to shoot more missiles & to greater distances, so she knows her only chance to win is to shoot first!
50. SO I'M SURE RUSSIA'S COME TO THE SAD CONCLUSION THAT THERE'S GOING TO BE A NUCLEAR WAR.—The Americans are reassuring her of that fact almost daily, that they plan to strike first if they can as soon as they get caught up arms-wise. They are both determined to fight each other sooner or later & to win by knocking the other one out, & the only way they can do it now that they both have so many nuclear weapons is through a nuclear exchange. And the one who's capable of a first strike with the least injury to himself, the least retaliation, stands the best chance of winning & emerging as ruler of the World!
51. AND ACCORDING TO ALL WE'VE GOTTEN FROM THE LORD ON THE SUBJECT‚ IT'S NOT RUSSIA THAT'S GOING TO GET WIPED OUT THE MOST, IT'S THE UNITED STATES! God is going to be more merciful to Russia than to the U.S., because the U.S. knows better. The poor Russians have not had near as much Light as the United States & the poor Russians have not sinned as much against God nor been as cruel to the weak nor waged so many wars nor devastated & polluted so much of the Earth nor robbed & oppressed the poor as much as the U.S. has! God has very clearly shown us in many passages of Scripture, prophecies, dreams, visions, etc.‚ that Russia is going to win this next war!—And the U.S. is not only going to lose, but even be destroyed!
52. GOD HAS ALSO TOLD US THAT THE WAR IS GOING TO BEGIN VERY SUDDENLY, WITH GREAT SURPRISE, & cause a "mighty widening of the eyes". There will be a sudden holocaustic destruction when somebody makes a pre-emptive strike, which I think will be Russia, in order to try to save the World! If Russia can knock the U.S. out first & quick before they get their missiles off the ground, the more thorough job the Russians do of it, then the fewer missiles will be fired & the fewer lives will be lost & the less the overall destruction & Worldwide holocaust!
53. I DON'T THINK THE RUSSIANS WANT THIS HORRIBLE WAR‚ BUT I THINK THE U.S. IS GOING TO AGGRAVATE THEM TO WHERE THEY JUST DRIVE THEM BEYOND THE BREAKING POINT & they decide they've got to put the U.S. out of commission & get rid of this menace to the World! So I have a feeling that Russia will strike first, because the guy who strikes first, of course, stands the greatest chance of winning, because the other side will not have so much to strike back with! There will be damage to both sides, but the first striker will have a definite advantage & will do the greatest damage to his enemy.
54. AND BECAUSE THE BIBLE DEFINITELY INDICATES THAT RUSSIA & THE SUPPORTERS OF THE ANTICHRIST ARE GOING TO COME OUT ON TOP & WIN, when the atomic war comes & the pre–emptive strike comes, I believe Russia's going to make it & destroy the U.S. first. Of course she will also receive some destruction through retaliatory measures of the U.S. missile machine, but it won't be nearly that which the U.S. is going to suffer.
55. SO AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED, THAT'S ALL SETTLED: AMERICA'S THE ONE THAT'S GOING TO GET IT FIRST & MOST‚ & RUSSIA'S THE ONE THAT'S GOING TO GIVE IT TO HER & GET THE LEAST. Because it's going to so knock America out of the game that there's not much she's going to be able to do in the way of retaliation against such a huge tremendous target as Russia. I believe many more millions of Russians are going to survive than Americans, & America is going to be destroyed as a nation & as a power & knocked out of the race, out of the running, out of the war, & be unable to retaliate sufficiently to regain anything.
56. EVEN IF THE RUSSIANS & THE AMERICANS LAUNCHED THEIR MISSILES ALMOST SIMULTANEOUSLY, & they both struck at the same time, there is so much more of Russia & so many Russians that there are bound to be more of them who would survive & be able to reconstruct & function again. Whereas the U.S. is simply too concentrated & its cities are too large.—Its entire governmental & economic structure is built on big cities‚ & once the cities are knocked out, the country will be gone!
57. IN A "TIME" MAGAZINE ARTICLE ENTITLED "ARMING FOR THE 21ST CENTURY", MAJOR GENERAL GEORGE KEEGAN JR., recently retired as the U.S. Air Force's Chief of Intelligence, warned that "the Soviets are capable of initiating, waging, surviving & emerging with a unique advantage from a global nuclear war."
58. EDWARD TELLER, THE SO-CALLED "FATHER OF THE H-BOMB" & widely acclaimed nuclear weapons expert‚ claimed in a "Playboy" magazine interview, "If there should be a nuclear exchange with Russia, the Russians have taken precautions, so that, in all probability, the damage to human life in Russia would be considerably less than it was in the Second World War. They probably would lose less than five percent of their population. Since we (the U.S.) have done virtually nothing about our civil defense, we would lose more than 50% of our population, & the U.S. would no longer exist as a power, a political entity, even as an idea! Our way of life would have become non-existent.
59. "THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE WOULD SURVIVE, & the Russians have a superiority in the number of nuclear explosives that might easily become great enough so that after such an exchange, they still had a terrific striking force by which they could coerce any nation on Earth to deliver to them whatever they wanted—food, machinery, labour—so their property losses could be replaced in an exceedingly short time."
60. AND THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE LORD HAS SHOWN US WILL HAPPEN! In fact, Russia is already emerging the stronger power, & we know that her soon–coming Satanically-empowered-&-possessed leader, the Antichrist, will establish a powerful, One-World government that will reign supreme over the entire Earth! In fact, it's quite obvious from the Bible, from the prophecies of nearly all the prophets, that it's this great Northern power of Russia which overcomes the rest of the World, including Israel & the Middle East & the West & the South & everywhere!—It eventually conquers everything!
"SO SUDDEN WILL BE THE GREAT CONFUSION!"
61. WHAT CONDITIONS DO YOU THINK WILL PREVAIL IMMEDIATELY AFTER SUCH A WAR in which the losing leading countries of the war are destroyed, their governments destroyed, half their people destroyed, their industries‚ their commerce & their finances destroyed? What kind of conditions are going to prevail in the countries of North America & much of Europe after such a war? God has put it into exact words & called it "The Great Confusion"!
62. BACK IN 1965 THE LORD TOLD US IN THE FAMOUS "WARNING PROPHECY", "TURN YOUR EYES TOWARD MEMPHIS (EGYPT), FOR OUT OF IT SHALL COME THE GREAT CONFUSION! The author of Confusion (the Antichrist) is even now marshalling his forces for this Great Confusion! He is gathering his forces from a great nation & Eastern nations, friends that will join with him. So sudden will be the Great Confusion, that it will cause a mighty widening of the eyes of those who have not discerned the signs of the times. But be ye not deceived! Be prepared! And be not deceived by the Great Society, for it will come to travail & then bring forth the Great Confusion! Be prepared! Even now, the skies are red, red with warning, & black, black with clouds gathering for the Great Confusion which is almost upon you!"
63. THE GREAT CONFUSION IS GOING TO BE SUDDEN, IT'S GOING TO BE BY TREMENDOUS SURPRISE! What does it mean when people widen their eyes?—Shock!—Surprise! Of course‚ a lot of them are going to widen their eyes because they're going to burn right out of their sockets! (Zech.14:12.) So obviously such a horrible holocaust, horrible horror of Hell-on-Earth war, would definitely result in great Worldwide Confusion.—I don't think hardly anything could bring on as much Great Confusion as a full-scale atom war between the Superpowers!
64. ANOTHER PROPHECY WHICH INDICATES THAT THE "GREAT CONFUSION" WILL BE BROUGHT ON VERY SUDDENLY IS FOUND IN THE APOCALYPTIC BOOK OF REVELATION IN THE BIBLE. The 17th & 18th Chapters describe the destruction of "the Great Whore", "Babylon the Great", "that Great City which reigneth over the kings of the Earth", "with whom the kings of the Earth have committed fornication, & with whom the inhabitants of the Earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication."—A great, rich & haughty whore who saith in her heart, "I sit a queen & am no widow, & shall see no sorrow." (Rev.17:1,2,5,18; 18:7.) (Also see "America the Whore"‚ No.216.)
65. OF COURSE THIS WHORE, THE GREAT WORLD COMMERCIAL SYSTEM OF MERCHANT MATERIALISM & IDOLATRY‚ HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN EXISTENCE‚ as an in-depth study of the Chapter reveals.—But I am convinced that today's modern capitalistic commercial system, led of course by America, is the epitome of this Great Whore of Revelation, & is in fact its ultimate fulfilment! If there was ever a country that typified Babylon, it is today's United States of America!—A great, evil, wicked, violent country where they worship violence‚ material things, money, war & nearly everything that's evil! They are creators of evil!
66. "THEREFORE SHALL HER PLAGUES COME IN ONE DAY, DEATH‚ & MOURNING, & FAMINE, & SHE SHALL BE UTTERLY BURNED WITH FIRE, for strong is the Lord God Who judgeth her! And the kings of the Earth, who have committed fornication & lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her & lament for her when they shall see the smoke of her burning, standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city!—For in one hour is thy judgement come!" (Rev.18:8-10.)—God is going to make short shrift of her in a sudden deadly blow that will almost totally destroy her with fire!—Sure sounds like an atomic first strike!
67. SO IT'S GONNA HAPPEN VERY FAST WHEN IT COMES & I BELIEVE HE'S TALKING THERE ABOUT THIS COMING CONFLICT. That's one good thing about this coming war, when it finally comes to a climax it's going to be over in a hurry!—It's only going to last a day, & the worst will be over in one hour! God's Word says so! In one day all these catastrophes will come upon them & the merchants of the World will lament that so great riches are destroyed! They will stand afar off & watch the burning of Babylon, the Western Capitalistic World, especially the U.S.A.!
68. "FOR THOU SHALT BE BROUGHT DOWN! And the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, & the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away: Yea, it shall be at an instant, suddenly! Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, & with earthquake, & great noise, with storm & tempest, & the flame of devouring fire!" (Isa.29:4-6.)
69. (PROPHECY: ) "FOR INDEED BABYLON (AMERICA THE WHORE!) SHALL BE DESTROYED WITH GREAT SUDDENNESS!—Within one hour shall all these distresses come upon her! Babylon, O Babylon, that great city which oppresses the kings of the Earth & maketh merchandise of the souls of men, living upon her delicacies & the blood of martyrs, shall indeed be destroyed by the hand of God & the hand of man for her iniquities, to deliver the Earth from them that would destroy it!" PTL!
70. MAY GOD DESTROY THEM THAT DESTROY THE EARTH!—They pollute the Earth with their money, their music & their movies! They're polluting the whole World with their religion of kill, kill, kill for money! My God‚ deliver us!—And He soon will! "For whatsoever a nation soweth, that shall she also reap", & "every nation that forgets God shall be turned into Hell!" (Ga.6:7; Ps.9:17.)—Hell on Earth & Hell hereafter! So it won't be long now! His Word never fails! PTL!
71. IT WON'T BE LONG BEFORE THAT GODLESS NATION BEGINS TO FEEL THE JUDGEMENTS OF GOD! If God doesn't destroy the modern American Sodom & Gomorrah, He will have to apologise to the ancient ones! He Himself has warned us to get out of America: "Come out of her, ye My people, lest ye be partakers of her sins & the judgements which shall befall her!" (Rev.18:4.) Criminal America must be dealt with by the Great Judge of all & sentenced to her final fate! She & her dirty dogs of war will then reap what they themselves have sown!
72. SO WE CAN SOON EXPECT TO HEAR OF OR WITNESS AMERICA'S BEING CRUSHED AS SHE HAS CRUSHED THE WEAK‚ robbed as she has robbed the poor, bombed as she has bombed the innocent, destroyed as she has destroyed their lands, disgraced, humiliated, persecuted, harassed, victimised, carried away captive, imprisoned, tortured & slain, even as she & hers have done to the rest of the World!—And the World will remember why & be thankful‚ lest America destroy the Earth also!
ENTER THE "BEAST"!
73. UNTIL RECENTLY‚ THE WORLD HAS BEEN IN A STATE OF COMPLACENCY & HAS BEEN LULLED TO SLEEP BY A FALSE SENSE OF SECURITY: "We'll never have another big war!—It's just impossible, because it would be total annihilation!—Everybody would lose!"—They think!—But they're wrong! There's one that's going to win, at least for a little while‚ & that's the Antichrist, the Great Red Beast of Revelation!
74. OBVIOUSLY, WHICHEVER SUPERPOWER IS LEFT WITH ENOUGH POWER TO DOMINATE THE EARTH, whichever one survives the best‚ will of course then rule the World.—And as we've explained, we're convinced it's going to be Russia & her satellites! The great World government that she spawns is going to be headed by a man known as the Antichrist, who is going to bring order out of today's chaos & thus be proclaimed the Saviour of the World & the new Messiah.
75. THE SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT AT FIRST HE WILL COME IN BY PEACE & FLATTERY & BY CLEVER DECEIT. (Dan.11:21,23,24.) He will no doubt somehow establish temporary peace between the powers & religions of the World. Initially it will seem like the answer to all the World's problems: One-World government, one great union of nations & a new World economy, a One–World credit system and a One-World religion.
76. THIS NEW POWERFUL WORLD GOVERNMENT & ITS LEADER WILL STRIVE TO CREATE A NEW WORLD ORDER OF MAN, which will ultimately demand that all members of the System worship this Antichrist Beast & be branded with his number in their hands or foreheads in order to buy or sell! (Rev.13.) As we explained in the previous chapter of this book, where we dealt with the Antichrist & his reign in detail, this last government of man is not controlled by man at all‚ but by Satan himself in the body of a man, the Devil in the flesh!—Not just a demon-possessed man, but a Devil-possessed man, the Antichrist "Son of Perdition"! (2Th.2:3; Rev.13:2-4.)
THE REAL PROBLEM & SOLUTION!
77. THE QUICKER THINGS GET WORSE, THE QUICKER IT'LL ALL BE OVER & THE QUICKER THE LORD'LL HAVE TO COME TO RESCUE THINGS, save His Own & "destroy them that destroy the Earth"! But in the meantime, you might as well get ready for the horrors to come, because they are definitely going to use those heinous, idiotic, horrors–of-hell weapons which are going to destroy whole populations & contaminate whole countries, turning them into atomic wastelands, some of which won't be useable for generations!
78. THE DEVIL IS GOING TO GIVE THE WORLD A FORETASTE OF HELL through the atomic bomb & the coming war! They've already had a sample through the horrors of Hiroshima & Nagasaki in which hundreds of thousands of people were killed by the dropping of just two bombs, small ones at that, compared to what they've got today!
79. THE HORRORS OF HELL ARE GOING TO REIGN ON THIS EARTH IN A REIGN OF TERROR SUCH AS THE WORLD HAS NEVER KNOWN! God is letting it all come to a head, to show what a mess man is without the Lord & what a Hell on Earth he can make out of a Heaven on Earth by going his own way, rebelliously unbelieving & rejecting God!
80. MAN WILL HAVE BROUGHT IT ALL UPON HIMSELF THROUGH HIS OWN INIQUITY‚ his own sins, his own hand—literally dying by his own hand, committing Worldwide suicide, murder of entire populations, untold suffering, pain, starvation, sickness & savagery, all because of his sins & his refusal to receive the Lord, follow God or obey His Word!
81. ALBERT EINSTEIN WAS RIGHT WHEN HE SAID, "THE RELEASE OF ATOMIC ENERGY HAS NOT CREATED A NEW PROBLEM. It has merely made more urgent the necessity of solving an existing one."—And the existing problem is man's rejection of God & refusal to obey His two great loving laws, "To love the Lord thy God with all thy heart & all thy soul & all thy mind; & to love thy neighbour as thyself!" (Mt.22:37-39.)
82. THE SOLUTION IS THAT SIMPLE! If people would turn to the Lord, repent of their sins & ask His forgiveness‚ He would lift the curse & remove the whole thing.—But they won't! So He has to punish them & let the war come & all the horrors of man that man is bringing on himself, to show what a mess he is without God‚ before He can save him!
83. NUCLEAR ARMS ARE MERELY A SYMPTOM OF THE PROBLEM.—War itself is a mere symptom. Economic bankruptcy & distress is a symptom. Political confusion is a symptom. The whole mess today is merely the exterior sign of the disease within.—And the disease within is rebellion against God & defiance of the Lord & anti-Christ opposition to Jesus!—That's the disease!—The rest are all symptoms. The rest of this is nothing but a bunch of sores on the surface, of which the main disease is in the blood.—And the disease is soon going to break out all over in one Hell of a nuclear holocaust!
84. NEEDLESS TO SAY, THE FIRST PRACTICAL STEP TO TAKE IF YOU'RE HOPING TO SURVIVE THE COMING NUCLEAR WAR is to make sure you're living in a safe location, free of any U.S.‚ NATO or Russian bases or missiles—as these will be prime targets when it gets to be open season for missile warfare.
85. IN FACT, SOME PLACES LIKE THE U.S., GERMANY & ENGLAND ARE SO FULL OF BASES & MISSILES & NUCLEAR WEAPONRY THAT I HAVE VERY LITTLE HOPE FOR ANYONE LIVING IN THEM!—They're going to largely become nuke deserts! They're also very wicked places, incidentally, extremely wicked countries: Evil, vice-ridden, perverted & God-defiant & almost utterly, horribly, sickeningly, stinkingly corrupt—morally, spiritually & physically—every way. So I think God's going to let them get wiped out to help clean up the World!
86. ONCE YOU'RE FAR REMOVED FROM ANY LIKELY TARGET AREAS, THE THING YOU'VE GOT TO WATCH OUT FOR IS THE DEADLY RADIOACTIVE FALLOUT. The Bible says‚ "Go into your house & shut thy doors & windows—until the indignation be overpast!" (Is.26:20.) The worst & most powerful of this fallout, thank God, doesn't normally last more than about two weeks. So you need to plan to try to survive at least a couple of weeks somewhere in an area as closed as possible to dust & air from the outside & with a protected water source that cannot be contaminated. You had also better be somewhat independent with a supply of survival food that will last you anywhere from at least two weeks to a month.
87. AND ALTHOUGH THE OUTLOOK FOR THIS OLD WORLD IS AS BAD AS EVER, even getting a little worse every day, we who know & love the Lord don't have to worry about it!—Just be prepared to survive any kind of a war, a changeover or a temporary hump‚ & trust that we're not going to be directly hit nor radiated by the fallout.
88. BUT EVEN IF THEY'RE HITTING CLOSE, WHY, THE LORD'S OUR BOMB SHELTER! Referring to God's protection of His children when His judgements fall, His Word says, "Thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress‚ a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud!" (Isa.25:4,5.)
89. "HE THAT DWELLETH IN THE SECRET PLACE OF THE MOST HIGH SHALL ABIDE UNDER THE SHADOW OF THE ALMIGHTY. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge & my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, & from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with His feathers, & under His wings shalt thou trust: His Truth shall be thy shield & buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday." (Ps.91:1-6.)
90. "A THOUSAND SHALL FALL AT THY SIDE, & TEN THOUSAND AT THY RIGHT HAND; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold & see the reward of the wicked!" (Ps.91:7,8.)—He's promised to keep His children! He could keep us even if we were out there in the atomic fallout & breathing it full blast!—But usually He expects us to do what we can do‚ then He will help us & do for us what we can't do!
91. SO "SEEK YE THE LORD, ALL YE MEEK OF THE EARTH, which have wrought His judgement; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger." (Zeph.2:3.)—Make sure you are the Lord's & have received Jesus Christ into your own heart, personally. Then‚ even if you can't dodge the nukes or the kooks, He can protect you, for He cares for His Own!—And if you do wind up a target for an H-bomb, your worries are over! You'll wake up forever in the Heavenly Kingdom of God with eternal peace & joy & happiness & bliss & love & beauty forever! Hallelujah!—Hope to see you there!
92. MAY GOD HELP US & SAVE US & FINALLY BRING US PEACE ON EARTH, IN Jesus' name, AMEN!—And may God bless you with peace & His love in Jesus! You can have peace in your own heart even though all around you is war & confusion. You can have peace in your own heart by receiving the Prince of Peace into your own heart personally‚ Jesus Christ, by asking Him to come in in simple prayer, as it says in Revelation 3:20:
93. "BEHOLD‚ I STAND AT THE DOOR & KNOCK; if any man hear My voice & open the door, I will come in to him."—Ask Him in today!—Tomorrow may be too late!
