Soon-coming political events as predicted in the Bible!:

1. A Pact between the Arabs and Russia!

2. Occupation of Israel by the Reds!

3. The rise of a powerful World Leader and One-World Government!

4. The coming new Economic System!

5. How it will all End!

1. GOD'S WORD NEVER FAILS! We are even now watching the fulfilments of our Letters Numbers 269, 272, 274, 278, 280‚ 283, 284, 289, 294 and 295 in the daily news, particularly in the latest news from Washington and Israel!

2. I SHOULDN'T BE SURPRISED IF WE SHOULD SOON BE WITNESSING THE OTHER EVENTS DESCRIBED in Letters 103, 108‚ 146, 149, 156, 160, 162, 165, 201, 205, 214A, 216‚ 219, 220, 221, 222, and so on. Read them for yourself and see! God's Word never fails! Many of these are already coming to pass, and the others shall yet come to pass in his time in due season.

3. SOME OF US HAVE SOMETIMES BEEN A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED WHEN SOME OF THESE THINGS DID NOT OCCUR EXACTLY AS WE EXPECTED them or when we had expected them according to our own misinterpretations or misapplication, but they will happen when God is ready. The warning has been given and it could all happen any day now!

4. "QUE SERÁ SERÁ!"—"WHATEVER WILL BE WILL BE!"—BECAUSE GOD HAS SAID IT WILL BE‚ IT WILL BE, REGARDLESS OF THE UNBELIEVERS, scoffers, and mockers who will continue to live as they always have, eating, drinking, being merry, married, given in marriage‚ and planting and building as times wax worse and worse, as it was in the days of Noah, making fun of God's Ark and fools of His prophets until suddenly the flood of God's judgements shall descend upon them and sweep them all away!

5. FOR THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM MUST BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD for a witness unto all nations before the End can come.

6. FOR WHEN YE SHALL SEE JERUSALEM ENCOMPASSED WITH ARMIES, THEN KNOW THAT THE DESOLATION THEREOF IS NIGH‚ and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles shall be fulfilled.

7. FOR OUT OF ONE OF THEM (EGYPT) COMES FORTH A LITTLE HORN (KING OR RULER) WHICH WAXES EXCEEDING GREAT toward the South (Africa), toward the East (Asia) and toward the Pleasant Land (Israel), and by him the daily sacrifice (religious worship of all faiths) is taken away and the Abomination of Desolation set up (his own image). He shall be a king of fierce countenance and understanding dark sentences and his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power (but by Satan's power).

8. HE SHALL DESTROY WONDERFULLY AND PROSPER AND PRACTICE AND DESTROY THE MIGHTY AND THE HOLY PEOPLE, AND BY PEACE SHALL HE DESTROY MANY! He shall destroy the Holy City and the Sanctuary with a war of desolations, and confirm the Covenant with many for seven years. But in the midst of the seven (at the end of the first three-and-a-half years) he shall cause the sacrifice to cease and set up the Abomination of Desolation unto the End (of the seven years—another three-and-a-half years‚ the "Great Tribulation").

9. HE SHALL COME IN PEACEABLY AND OBTAIN THE KINGDOM BY FLATTERIES. He shall work deceitfully and become strong with a small people. He shall enter peaceably even upon the fattest places (America!). He shall do that which his fathers have not done, and scatter among the (common poor) people the prey, spoil and riches, forecasting his devices against strongholds (America!).

10. AND HIS HEART SHALL BE AGAINST THE HOLY COVENANT, AND SUCH AS DO WICKEDLY SHALL HE CORRUPT BY FLATTERIES, BUT THE PEOPLE THAT DO KNOW THEIR GOD SHALL BE STRONG AND DO EXPLOITS, and they that understand among the people shall instruct many. But some of them of understanding shall fall, to try them and to purge and to make them white, even to the time of the End.

11. THIS KING SHALL DO ACCORDING TO HIS OWN WILL, EXALTING AND MAGNIFYING HIMSELF ABOVE EVERY GOD and speaking marvelous things against the God of Gods, and he shall prosper until the Wrath of God be accomplished. Neither shall he regard the God of his fathers nor the desire of women nor any god, for he shall magnify himself above all!

12. BUT HE SHALL HONOUR THE GOD OF FORCES (ATOMIC POWER), a god whom his fathers knew not, a strange god by which he shall enter even the greatest strongholds (America!) and rule over many‚ dividing the land for gain.

13. AND AT THE TIME OF THE END HE SHALL ENTER INTO THE GLORIOUS LAND (ISRAEL) AND MANY COUNTRIES SHALL BE OVERTHROWN. But these shall escape out of his hand: Edom and Moab (Jordan) and the Chief of the children of Ammon (the king of Jordan). He shall stretch forth his hand also upon other countries, and the land of Egypt shall not escape! He shall have power over all the precious things of Egypt, and the Libyans and the Ethiopians shall be at his steps.

14. HE SHALL PLANT HIS PALACE BETWEEN THE SEAS (THE MEDITERRANEAN AND DEAD SEAS) IN THE GLORIOUS HOLY MOUNTAIN (MOUNT MORIAH, JERUSALEM, where the Temple once stood and the Mosque of Omar now stands). Yet shall he be broken without hand and shall come to his end and none shall help him! For when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the Holy People, all these things shall be finished.

15. MANY SHALL BE PURIFIED AND MADE WHITE AND TRIED, BUT THE WICKED SHALL DO WICKEDLY and none of the wicked shall understand, but the wise shall understand. But go thou thy way till thy End be, for thou shall rest and stand in thy lot at the End of the days!

16. THERE SHALL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN AND IN THE MOON AND IN THE STARS‚ AND UPON THE EARTH DISTRESS OF NATIONS WITH PERPLEXITY AND CONFUSION, the sea and the waves roaring, men's hearts failing them for fear and for looking upon these things which are coming upon the earth‚ for the powers of the Heavens shall be shaken.

17. BECAUSE INIQUITY SHALL ABOUND THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD, but he that shall endure unto the End shall be saved!

18. BUT WHEN YE SHALL SEE THE ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION SPOKEN OF BY DANIEL THE PROPHET STANDING IN THE HOLY PLACE WHERE IT OUGHT NOT, THEN SHALL BE GREAT TRIBULATION such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

19. FOR THE GENTILES SHALL TREAD THE HOLY CITY UNDER FOOT FOR FORTY-AND-TWO MONTHS—one-thousand-two-hundred–and–three-score days—while God's witnesses (the Children of God) shall prophesy in (red) sackcloth with great power and wonders until they have finished their testimony. Then the beast shall make war against them and kill them because their message has tormented those that dwelt on the earth!

20. FOR THE GREAT RED BEAST SHALL HAVE POWER OVER ALL THE EARTH for three-and-one-half years, speaking great blasphemies and doing great wonders and miracles, so that all the world shall wonder after him and worship him saying, "Who is like unto him, and who is able to make war with him!"

21. AND HE SHALL BLASPHEME AGAINST GOD AND HIS NAME AND HIS PEOPLE and all Heaven and make war with the saints and overcome them, and have power over all kindreds, tongues and nations, and all that dwell upon the earth whose names are not written in the Book of Life shall worship him!

22. AND THEY SHALL MAKE AN IMAGE UNTO HIM that shall speak and have the power of life and death and cause those who refuse to worship him to be killed! And no one will be able to buy or sell without his mark, name or number in their hand or forehead!

23. BUT HE THAT KILLETH WITH THE SWORD MUST BE KILLED WITH THE SWORD, so here is the patience and the faith of the saints: Blessed are they which die in the Lord that they may rest from their labours!—Their works do follow them!

24. THEREFORE WHEN THESE THINGS BEGIN TO COME TO PASS‚ LOOK UP AND LIFT UP YOUR HEADS‚ FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH!—Know ye that the Kingdom of God is at hand! For this generation which seeth these things come to pass shall not pass away till all these things shall be fulfilled. So be not soon shaken that the day of (the 2nd Coming of) Christ is at hand.

25. FOR THAT DAY (OF CHRIST'S 2nd COMING) SHALL NOT COME EXCEPT THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST AND THAT MAN OF SIN BE REVEALED, the Son of Perdition (the Antichrist) who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God claiming that he himself is God.

26. HIS COMING IS AFTER THE WORKING OF SATAN WITH ALL POWER AND SIGNS AND LYING WONDERS and all deceiveableness of unrighteousness in them that perish because they receive not the love of the truth that they might be saved. For which cause God shall send them strong delusion that they should believe a lie and that they all might be damned who believe not the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

27. THIS MYSTERY OF INIQUITY DOTH ALREADY WORK, ONLY GOD HOLDS HIM BACK UNTIL HE IS RELEASED. Then shall that Wicked One be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume and destroy with the brightness of His coming! For when they shall say, "Peace and safety!" then cometh sudden destruction!

28. IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS THEY SHALL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING IN THE CLOUDS OF HEAVEN WITH POWER AND GREAT GLORY! And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet and they shall gather together His elect from the four corners of the Earth and the four winds of Heaven. For the Lord Himself shall descend from Heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trump of God! And them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him when He comes.

29. THE DEAD IN CHRIST SHALL RISE FIRST, THEN WE WHICH ARE ALIVE and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord! Wherefore comfort one another with these words. But ye, Brethren, are not in darkness that that day should overtake you as a thief: Ye are the Children of God, the Children of Light!

30. THEREFORE, LET US NOT SLEEP AS DO OTHERS, BUT LET US WATCH AND BE SOBER. Watch, therefore, and be ye also ready. Who‚ then, is a faithful and wise servant whom his Lord hath made ruler over his household to give them meat in due season?—Blessed is that servant whom his Lord when He cometh shall find so doing!—Verily I say unto you that He shall make him ruler over all his goods!

31. BUT AND IF THAT EVIL SERVANT SHALL SAY IN HIS HEART, "MY LORD DELAYETH HIS COMING," and shall begin to smite his fellow servants and to eat and drink with the drunken, the Lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him and in an hour that he is not aware of and shall cut him asunder and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites and there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth!

32. FOR UNTO EVERY ONE THAT HATH (SALVATION AND GOOD WORKS) SHALL BE GIVEN, AND HE SHALL HAVE ABUNDANCE! But from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which (he thinketh) he hath!

33. FOR WE SHALL NOT ALL DIE, BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED IN A MOMENT IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP! For the trumpet shall sound and the dead in Christ shall be raised incorruptible as death is swallowed up in victory! Thanks be to God which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!

34. THEREFORE, MY BELOVED BRETHREN, BE YE STEADFAST, UNMOVABLE, ALWAYS ABOUNDING IN THE WORK OF THE LORD, for as much as ye known that your labour is not in vain in the Lord: For in the days of these kings shall the God of Heaven set up a Kingdom which shall never be destroyed or left to others, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these other kingdoms and shall stand forever!

35. AND THE KINGDOM AND DOMINION AND THE GREATNESS OF THE KINGDOM UNDER THE WHOLE HEAVEN SHALL BE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE of the saints of the Most High, Whose Kingdom is an everlasting Kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him! They that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament, and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars forever and ever! (The above Scriptures are quoted from the Bible: Ezk.38; Daniel 2-12; Mat.24; Mk.13; Lu.21; 1Cor.15; 1Thes.4-5; 2Thes.2; and Rev.11-13. Read 'em!)

36. ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THESE COMING EVENTS?—If not, and you'd like to know more of the details of the days ahead and how to survive them, send for the Letters numbered above or those listed herein TODAY!—Tomorrow may be too late!
