—The Newspaper of the Future!
—The exact events of the next few years!
—Would you like to know your Future?—Here it is!
—IT WON'T BE LONG NOW!—ARE YOU READY?
1. DO YOU EVER WORRY ABOUT THE FUTURE, WONDERING WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN? Many people today seem to somehow sense that we are living on borrowed time.—After all, we are the first generation that has had to live with the knowledge that mankind could completely destroy itself & our planet!
2. PSYCHOLOGISTS TELL US THAT UNCERTAINTY & THE FEAR OF THE UNKNOWN IS THE WORST FEAR OF ALL!—Not knowing what's going to happen. But believe it or not, you can know what the future holds, you can know what's going to happen!—Accurately & in detail down to the exact number of years, months & even days!—Exactly what's going to happen!
3. HOW CAN THIS BE? HOW CAN MORTAL MAN POSSIBLY CROSS THE BOUNDS OF TIME & LOOK INTO THE FUTURE?—By knowing God & His wonderful Word, the Bible! For God is a Spirit & dwells in the Eternal Now where there is no past nor future & "time is no more"! The past, present & future are all seen easily by God, & He can easily reveal to His prophets & messengers the mysteries of what is to come.
4. WOULDN'T YOU LIKE TO READ A NEWSPAPER THAT TELLS YOU NOT JUST WHAT'S ALREADY HAPPENED, BUT WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN?—Well, you can! Other newspapers tell you what already happened yesterday, so they're not really news papers, they're history papers! But the Bible not only tells us about yesterday, it also tells us about 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! Many of these prophecies are about the final period of World History, the last final days of man's kingdoms on Earth, a period which is known as the "Time of the End"!—The time in which you & I are now living!
5. 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 replied with not only one sign, but with dozens! In fact, the Bible gives us hundreds of "signs of the times", signs & signals that we are to watch for so that we can know exactly how close to the very End we are! These signs include: A dramatic upsurge in "famines, pestilences & earthquakes in divers places", "the Gospel being preached in all the World for a witness to all nations", a drastic increase in international travel, with "many running to & fro, wandering from sea to sea, as knowledge is greatly increased".—A great "falling away" from the Lord as "evil men & seducers grow worse & worse, deceiving many".—"The love of many growing cold"‚ resulting in "distress of nations upon the Earth & men's hearts failing them for fear"!—Signs which are all obviously being fulfilled today more than ever before!—A worldwide economic Crash is probably next!
6. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT & FINAL SIGNS OF THE VERY END‚ PREDICTED BY MANY PROPHETS, 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!—The World leader known in the Bible as The Antichrist! In desperation the World will turn to this political Superman, hoping that he'll be able to solve their pressing problems, heal their economic ills, unite their politics, end their religious squabbles & defuse their nuclear time-bomb!
7. HE WILL COME ON THE SCENE WITH A 7-YEAR AGREEMENT OR COVENANT by which he will bring a measure of World peace by reconciling the World's major religions. Through this Covenant he will also 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 in Jerusalem on Mt. Moriah where their ancient Temple once stood near where the Muslim "Dome of the Rock" Mosque stands today.
8. 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 some peace, restored the World's economy, redistributed the wealth‚ helped the poor, solved the Mid–East crisis‚ promised religious liberty, etc.
9. 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 & his Image!
10. FOR AT THIS TIME HE WILL PLACE AN IDOL, AN IMAGE OF HIMSELF, AT 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 at the Temple, you will know that the last 3-1/2 years of man's evil rule on Earth, a time of "Great Tribulation", has begun!
11. DURING THIS LAST 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 worship this Antichrist & reject Jesus 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 & many others will refuse to worship him or receive his Mark!—And the Lord will take care of them, even if He has to drop manna from Heaven to feed them!
12. AND WHILE THE ANTICHRIST & HIS FOLLOWERS ARE PERSECUTING & TRYING TO KILL THEIR ENEMIES, God is going to let loose pestilences & plagues & even strange monsters which will attack these wicked people of the Devil! These days of Great Tribulation will be like the last days of the children of Israel in Egypt before Moses led them out!—God's prophets will be doing great & mighty signs, wonders & miracles to defend the Gospel & God's children while God plagues their enemies!
13. A NUMBER OF WARS, 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! But God, in His Word, repeatedly tells us how long this time 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 at the Temple—to encourage us to hang on & keep going for Jesus!
14. THIS TRIBULATION PERIOD WILL BE THE END OF ANY KIND OF ASSOCIATION WITH THE ANTICHRIST SYSTEM FOR TRUE CHRISTIANS. It will be impossible to survive except by miracles of God & faith & living by faith‚ totally & entirely independent from the Antichrist System, without its Mark & without its approval & without its benefits. But in spite of the Antichrist & his forces' suppression & persecution of God's children & many others who refuse the Mark of the Beast, the Lord is going to supernaturally, miraculously protect & keep them, provide places of refuge for them, & empower them to promote & get out His Message till the very End!
15. GOD'S WORD SAYS THAT DURING THIS TIME, "THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG & DO EXPLOITS, & THEY THAT UNDERSTAND AMONG THE PEOPLE SHALL INSTRUCT MANY!" People are going to be more desperate than ever then, & those who are faithful witnesses for the Lord, who know God's Word, are going to be a great encouragement to millions throughout the Earth who are going to seek them & their answers. For in spite of all that the Devil's forces try to do to stop them, millions of God's children will keep going for God till the very End of the World‚ witnessing for Jesus till He comes!
16. AT THE END OF THIS GREAT 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!
17. SO 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 to rescue all of His children out of this World! Just after that darkest night in World History we are going to have the brightest dawn! All of the Antichrist's forces will be shocked as they see the Lord coming in the clouds of Heaven with power & great glory! "Behold, He cometh with clouds, & every eye shall see Him‚ & all kindreds of the Earth shall wail because of Him!" When they see Jesus coming in the sky, in 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 Jesus has come to rescue His people!
18. FOR WHEN JESUS COMES, A GREAT & WONDERFUL MIRACLE TAKES PLACE—THE RAPTURE! All of God's saved children will have a glorious & beautiful & wonderful resurrection! The graves of the saints will burst open & all of the Christians who have already died & gone on to be with Jesus will receive new resurrection bodies!—And the millions of Christians who are still alive on Earth, having miraculously survived throughout the Antichrist's reign of terror‚ will be instantly changed, transformed, as they also receive their new, miraculous, powerful‚ supernatural, translated bodies—just like Jesus' body after He was resurrected!—And up they'll all fly towards the sky, to meet the Lord in the air, rising in immortal victory over the forces of the Devil & the Antichrist & out of their reach forever!
19. FOR JESUS HAS COME BACK TO CATCH HIS BRIDE, HIS CHURCH, OUT OF THE EVIL CLUTCHES OF THE ENEMY & to whisk her away to unite with Him & each other in 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 His children to be with Him, the horrific Seven Vials of the great Wrath of God are going to be poured out upon the Antichrist & his evil forces still remaining on Earth—the most horrible, terrible plagues the wicked World has ever known!
20. GOD'S ANGELS OF JUDGEMENT ARE GOING TO POUR OUT HIS JUDGEMENTS & HORRORS & WRATH UPON THE ANTICHRIST & HIS FORCES to punish & sock it to them with what they deserve!—And they are going to get it!—Until the final Wrath of all, when the Antichrist forces gather together at a plain in Israel called Armageddon to try to fight their enemies & are destroyed!
21. FOR JESUS HIMSELF, ALONG WITH HIS RESURRECTED, GLORIFIED, HEAVENLY FORCES, RETURNS TO EARTH AGAIN on majestic white Heavenly horses, charging out of Heaven to utterly defeat & destroy the Antichrist & his evil forces in the supernatural, catastrophic Battle of Armageddon!
22. THEN JESUS & ALL OF HIS BORN–AGAIN, SAVED CHILDREN WILL TAKE OVER THE WORLD & ORGANISE IT & RULE IT & RUN IT THE WAY IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN RUN if man had yielded to God! They're going to set up the Kingdom of Heaven 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!
23. GOD IS GOING TO BE SUPREME & JESUS WILL REIGN from shore to shore & His children will rule & reign with Him! The Devil will be bound & cast as a prisoner into the Bottomless Pit for this thousand-year period & worldly 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!
24. ANOTHER MAJOR CHANGE THAT WILL TAKE PLACE DURING THE MILLENNIUM IS THAT THE CURSE THAT CAME UPON THE EARTH AFTER ADAM & EVE SINNED WILL BE LARGELY LIFTED, which will mean a lot of different & better conditions. There will be no more weeds, thorns or thistles, nor any more venomous insects, ravenous beasts or pests! At last the Earth will be like the Lord originally intended for it to be, like it was during the days of Adam & Eve in the beautiful Garden of Eden!
25. ALL KILLING & VIOLENCE & HURTING WILL BE STOPPED, THERE WILL BE PEACE BETWEEN MAN & THE ANIMALS & FORMERLY WILD BEASTS, "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!
26. DURING THE MILLENNIUM, ALL OF THE BORN-AGAIN, SAVED, RESURRECTED SAINTS WILL HAVE NEW SUPERNATURAL BODIES‚ with amazing miraculous powers such as indestructibility, no pain‚ sickness or death, but power to stop any enemies at a thought or a glance or a motion, the abilities to appear & disappear, fly, change their appearance into inscrutable disguises to spy on any rebels & invade their most secret hideouts & even their very thoughts with their mind-reading ability, & x-ray eyes to see through walls & across vast stretches of distance to detect their plans & operations! God's children will be able to communicate with each other by mental telepathy without speaking a word‚ even over great distances‚ etc., whereas the Earthly people will have none of these advantages, so it will be fairly easy to rule over the World with the wisdom, power, justice & love of Jesus & His personal leadership!
27. THE EARTHLY PEOPLE, those who have been spared & blessed enough to survive into the Millennium, are still going to be in their old natural bodies. Everyone on Earth will see God's glorious power & Kingdom & there won't be any unbelievers then, but sad to say, there will still be some unreceivers who won't yield & won't obey & will still be stubborn & rebellious & defiant by choice in the End!
28. THEREFORE, AS A FINAL TEST & DIVISION OF SHEEP FROM GOATS 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 those unconverted wicked over whom the saints have been ruling with firm control. These rebels will then again follow Satan 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! In fact, it is such a horrible fire that it will completely wipe out the entire surface of the Earth, & the atmospheric heavens will be rolled back like a scroll & depart with a great noise! The entire surface of the planet is going to be completely purged, cleansed, burned up & recreated into a beautiful New Earth with no more seas & a pollution-free atmosphere!
29. 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 places in the Hereafter. The worst & most cruel & wicked will be sent to Hell or Purgatory for punishment & purging, while the righteous & fair, who tried to be good but were unsaved because they had not heard the Gospel, will be found in the Book of Life & given a chance to receive Jesus & enjoy the marvellous New Earth!
30. 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 Jesus & us taking over the World by invading it from Outer Space—bringing down His Heavenly City & restoring Himself as the King of Kings forever!
31. 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!—The great eternal Heavenly Home for all of God's saved children!
32. THE ENTIRE "CITY IS PURE GOLD, LIKE UNTO CLEAR GLASS"! It's like clear golden-coloured glass, a beautiful crystal gold! And through those transparent walls, you can see 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!
33. 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 the saved shall minister to them from where they grow by the River of Life within the City!
34. AND EVENTUALLY, BECAUSE OF GOD'S MERCY & JUSTICE, ALL SUFFERING & ALL PUNISHMENT ON EARTH & UNDER THE EARTH WILL END.—So that most men everywhere, billions who have lived, will finally be restored & reconciled to God, saved, & live either with the elect, the elite, within the Heavenly Space City, or else outside the City on the New Earth, in varying stages & conditions & levels of learning & understanding & service & worship of the Lord. "For God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." (2Pet.3:9) "Who will have all men to be saved, & to come unto the knowledge of the truth." (1Tim.2:4) "That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in Heaven, & things in Earth, & things under the Earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father." (Phil.2:10,11)
35. AND WHEN THE EARTH & ALL OF ITS INHABITANTS ARE AT LAST FULLY REDEEMED, WHO KNOWS WHAT GOD WILL HAVE IN STORE FOR US? Who knows but perhaps the Lord may want to even colonise other Worlds! After all, what's the whole Universe & all that huge amount of space for if He's only interested in this one little planet? So maybe there will be other Worlds that His supernatural miraculous children will have to salvage & save & restore & regenerate, reconcile & teach & train & heal with Jesus' Love!
AND THAT'S THE WAY OUR STORY OF THE FUTURE ENDS!—IT'S A VERY HAPPY ENDING‚ BECAUSE IT DOESN'T REALLY END! God's Great Space City is just the happy beginning!—It's eternal & forever! "And they live happily ever after!"
36. WILL YOU LIVE HAPPILY FOR EVER AFTER? WILL YOUR FUTURE BE A HAPPY ONE? Will you enjoy 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 in 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!
PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE TODAY BY RECEIVING JESUS NOW! He says, "Behold‚ I stand at the door (of your heart) & knock; If any man hear My voice & open the door, I will come into him!" Receive Jesus now by praying‚ "Lord Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God & that You died for me. Please forgive me for all my sins & come into my heart. Help me to love & follow You & to share Your love with others. In Jesus' name, I pray, amen." Now that you've received Jesus, you'll be ready for whatever the Future brings! God bless you with a Happy Future!—In Jesus' name, amen!
