THE GOOD NEWS MINISTRY AND MISSIONS OUTREACH PROCLAIMING THE SOON RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST!
Revealing Armageddon-The Final Battle!
The Nations of the World are moving rapidly toward Armageddon - The Nuclear Holocaust that will kill two billion people almost instantly!
"And He gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon" (Rev. 16:16)
"ARMAGEDDON" means the gathering place. It is where the armies of the world gather for the final battle over Jerusalem that will be fought by Christ, the Antichrist and his armies at the close of the Great Tribulation period. The Nations of this world are marching on to Armageddon at a rapid rate of speed.
Many battles have been fought at and around Armageddon. It was here that the British defeated the Turks in 1918. And it is here where the start of the last battle upon this earth will begin with the gathering of all the world's armies to march on to Jerusalem just before Jesus Christ returns and sets up his kingdom.
China now has the Nuclear Bomb. Russia, United States of America, France, Pakistan, India, Israel and other countries have the Nuclear Bombs, as well as the liquid gas, and Biological weapons that would poison millions with their toxic vapours in a short period of time.
Think of the powerful nations that have the Nuclear Bombs, Poisonous Gases, Biological Weapons and other implements of war, attacking one another simultaneously! You can plainly see how two billion people could be killed in a very short time besides the hundreds of millions injured and dying.
More than nineteen hundred years ago, while the apostle John was cast as a prisoner on the little rocky, barren island of Patmos, in the Aegean Sea, God showed him in a vision of the devastating power of the Nuclear Bomb, Germ Warfare, and Poisonous Gas and the effects of it. It is utterly impossible to describe the intense suffering, the agony that you will suffer under the rule of the Antichrist So terrible will be your suffering that you will even want to die, and can't. "And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them." (Rev. 9:6.)
From the effects of Nuclear Bombs, Radiation, Toxic Gases and Demons from Hell, you will break out with painful sores all over your body.
"And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image" (Rev. 16:2.)
The water in the sea, and the springs, and the wells will be turned into blood. With all the suffering of the affliction in your body and the intense thirst, you will turn on the faucet and water like blood will come out. (See Rev. 16:4).
The heat from the sun will be so intense that it will scorch you with glowing heat, and you will be severely burned. The sun will become darkened, and the stars will begin to fall! Your pains and distress will be so excruciating that you will even gnaw your tongue in the darkness! The poison from the Nuclear Bombs and Germ Warfare will cause your flesh to rot while you stand upon your feet! (See Zech. 14:12).
The whole atmosphere will be infested with poison, radiation from the Nuclear Bombs, Toxic Gas, and Germ Warfare. God only knows what the nations have stored up in their arsenals! Think of Russia's One Hundred Megaton Hydrogen Bomb. We are told it is estimated by Scientists that one single Nuclear attack in the United States might kill forty million people!
In the valleys of Jerusalem, the blood will flow in the gutters horses bridle deep, for a distance of about two hundred miles. (See Rev. 14: 20). All the trouble, death, heartaches, sorrow, pestilence's, famine, earthquakes, diseases, hatred, strife, and every form of trouble and calamity put together from Adam until now, would not begin to compare with the trouble, heartaches, diseases, famine, death, that will take place in the short period of seven years right after the Church is Raptured.
Now I am sure this is a very frightening message to sinners and hypocrites and worldly minded people. People in this class do not like this kind of preaching. The worldly minded professors are looking for preachers who will tickle their ears. Paul described them in (I Tim. 4:1-3) and (2 Tim. 3:1-8).
We have this class of people in the Nominal Church today. The professing, nominal church members are looking for preachers who will tickle their ears with pious platitudes. These are the people that will say to their preachers, "Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things, prophesy deceits." (Isa. 30:10)
A good doctor will tell his patient the truth about his condition even If it takes an operation to save his life. A quack doctor will rub salve on and keep them coming back to get their money. The same applies to the quack preacher. He will not preach on the second coming of Jesus, on being obedient to the scriptures, on the realities of hell or the judgements that will soon come upon the world. He will say to his congregation, "God is in the heavens and all is Well. Do not be frightened by the Prophets of Doom". God is in the heavens, but all is not well on the earth. Only those who are right with God are well.
Every effort that is made in the right way by the statesmen of the world to bring peace is appreciated by all True Christians. God's True ministers are not Pessimists. We know the storm of God's judgement is coming. upon this ungodly world, and we are called to warn the unrighteous, and to awaken the slumbering church.
No doubt Noah was called an alarmist. All of the prophets who foretold the destruction of Jerusalem were called alarmists. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of the wickedness. Very, very soon the judgements of God are going to Fall upon this Christ rejecting world.
We are called alarmists by many who do not believe the truth.
God pronounces a woe upon the foolish Prophets." Thus saith the Lord God. Woe unto the foolish Prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!" (Ezekiel 13:10). They are seducing the people today and crying peace, peace. "They have seduced my people, saying, Peace; and there was no peace," (Ezekiel 13:10.)
This is the way many professing-Aposate Christians and backsliders want it.
The true ministers of Jesus Christ are the people of the world today that proclaim the judgements of God are soon to fall upon this earth.
The backsliders, the professors and worldly minded do not like this kind of preaching. Even Lot's own relatives did not like it. They accused him as one that mocked. God's true ministers are watchmen. "For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman, let him declare what he seeth... Watchman, what of the night?" (Isaiah. 21:6 and 11.)
God has never brought judgement upon the world without first warning, the People.
Noah warned the people of the flood, Lot warned the people concerning the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah. Jonah was sent to Nineveh to warn the people to repent of their wickedness or God would destroy their city.
God is warning the world today of the soon coming judgements that will come upon this world for their wickedness.
The darkest hour in the history of the world lies just ahead. When the Lamb of God opens the Sixth Seal, there will be great physical changes in the heavens and the earth!
The last great prayer meeting and not one Christian present.
The day of grace has come to an end. "The great day of God's wrath is here". The Saints of God have changed their prayers on earth to praises in heaven. Those who have rejected Christ will be crying to the rocks and the mountains to fall on them and hide them from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne.
Who will be in this great prayer meeting? Let the Bible speak for its self:
"And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondsman, and every free man, lid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains: And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come: and who shall be able to stand?" (Rev. 6: 15 -17).
The Atheists, Agnostics, Apostates, Counterfeit Christians, Materialists, Secular Humanists, the Occultists - New-agers, and all Infidels will be there. The mad, boastful dictators will be there. No doubt the Supreme Court judges who ruled Bible reading and prayer out of the schools will be there The Bible said,"Kings of the earth, great men, rich men, chief captains, mighty men, bond men, free men."They are not praying to God in. this Last prayer meeting nor are they praying to men. They are praying for the rocks and the mountains to fall upon them and hide them from the wrath of Him that sitteth upon the throne.
Why are they praying for the rocks and mountains to fall on them, hide them from the face of God? They do not want to look upon the face of the "blessed" Lord whom they have slighted and rejected.
The Lord whom they have ruled out of the United Nations Conferences, the Lord who has been ruled out of the schools, the Lord who has been crucified afresh and mocked and cursed. Their punishment is greater than they can bear. Yes, the day of God's wrath has come.! All the destructive power of nuclear bombs and poison gas as stored up by Russia, America and other countries will be unleashed on this ungodly world!
Think of the destructive power of the atomic bomb. One atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, August 6, 1945, killed more than seventy-eight thousand people and injured more than one hundred thousand. Three days later another bomb was dropped on Nagasaki killing more than seventy-three thousand people. But the atomic bombs that were dropped on these Japanese cities were only toys compared to the devastating bombs that are stored up in the world today. They tell us these atomic bombs like the ones that were dropped on the Japanese cities are now obsolete.
We think of the power of one nuclear bomb that can annihilate a city like New York in a matter of seconds.
God only knows what is stored up by the armies of the world today preparing for that dreadful war. "The day of God's wrath." There can be no peace in the world until Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace returns and sets up His glorious kingdom upon this earth. This world has rejected the Prince of Peace. He has been ruled out of the United Nations conferences. His Holy Bible is not permitted to be read in the schools. Yet the statesmen of this world are talking peace.
In the next world war a third of the earth's population will be destroyed.
Nearly two billion people will be slaughtered and destroyed by the coming World War. "And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and .a year, for to slay the third part of men." (Rev. 9:15.)
The earth moved off its orbit.
As the dreadful nuclear bombs begin to explode over cities throughout this world, the shock from them will be so terrible, no doubt it will shake the earth from its orbit.
The sun will become so hot it will scorch men with fire. "And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give Him glory." (Rev. 16:8-9.)
The flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet.
"And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth." (Zech. 14:12.)
Men will gnaw their tongues for pain.
"And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain." (Rev. 16:10.)
Men's flesh will be eaten with grievous sores.
"And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image." (Rev. 16:2.)
The water will be turned into blood.
"And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea, and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea. And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood" (Rev. 16:3-4.)
Oh! what a dreadful time; what a dreadful day.
Jesus said, "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved. but for the elects sake those days shall be shortened." (Matt. 24:21-22)
Daniel said, "....And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book." (Dan. 12: 1.)
The atmosphere will be ignited, the earth will melt with fervent heat.
"But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?" (2 Peter 3:10-12.)
Men will seek death and death shall flee from them. (Rev. 9:6.)
The ninth chapter of the Book of Revelation portrays the terrible destruction that is to come upon this earth, in that dreadful hour of trouble when all the wrath of God is poured upon those who have rejected His precious Son. If you reject the gift of God and fail to be cleansed in the precious Blood of Jesus, you will be here when all this destruction is poured out upon the earth.
We are told in the ninth chapter of the book of Revelation that the number of troops marshalled for this dreadful war will be two hundred million, with all the modern implements of war at their command.
God's Word declares The inhabitants of the earth are burned and only a few men left.
"BEHOLD, the Lord maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth abroad the inhabitants thereof The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the Lord hath spoken this word. The earth mourneth and fadeth away, the world languish and fadeth away, the haughty people of the earth do languish.
The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof, because they have transgressed the laws, the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant. Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate; therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left." (Isa. 24:1, 3-6)
God declares He will punish the world for their evil
"Fear, and the pit, and the snare are upon thee, O' inhabitants of the earth. And it shall come to pass, that he who fleeth from the noise of the fear shall fall into the pit; and he that cometh up out of the midst of the pit shall be taken in the snare: for the windows from on high are open, and the foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, The earth is clean dissolved the earth is moved exceedingly The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall and not rise again. And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall punish the host of the high ones that are on high, and the kings of the earth upon the earth." (Isa. 24:17-21.)
North America will not escape the judgements of God.
In the past, world wars have been fought on foreign soil. North America has been saved from the dreadful scourge of wars, because she is divided by oceans from bordering countries. No longer will oceans save her from the scourge of war. Bombs will annihilate our fair cities in North America. Judgement is coming upon our nation because North America has forgotten God. Yes, blood will flow over all the land of our countries.
The judgements of God spoken of in the book of Revelation are literal.
After the True and Faithful Bible Believing Church is caught away in the "Rapture" ( the evacuation of God's true church) the world will have its greatest famine. You talk about rationing in World War Two, it is nothing to compare with the rationing of food that will take place, even in the beginning Of World War Three.
The Antichrist will come in peaceably and will gain the votes of the people by promising them everything. It will be a false peace and false prosperity. He will be exalted as the greatest man on earth. Dictators come into power by promising the people prosperity and everything they desire. That is what the antichrist will do!
But remember, he does not ride the White Horse very long, soon he sends another horse that is red, and that red horse is in the world today, no doubt. The world is preparing the horse for its rider.
The scripture says, "And there went out another horse that was red; and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another. and there was given unto him a great sword." (Rev. 6:4.)
Here is where the Nuclear Bombs begin to fall, and where he quickly changes from a red horse to a black horse. He sits on this black horse with a pair of balances in his hand, and having all the world organized under his centralized power, and a Socialistic, communistic, Dictator Form of government. He will set up his system of food rationing throughout the world.
The free enterprise system will be destroyed and state rights will be no more! Every one will be working for the government under the reign of the Antichrist.
At the beginning of the rationing of food you will work a whole day for a loaf of broad. The Antichrist. will compel everyone to have his mark placed in their right hand or in their foreheads. Then after working all day for your loaf of bread, you go to the store to purchase it, and the store man will say, "Let us scan you for the mark in your hand or in your forehead." If you do not have the Mark of the Beast (666) you cannot buy or sell or even work!
"And he caused all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is 666." (Rev. 13:16-18.)
You may say, "that this could never happen in North America."
Yes, it can and will happen in North America, and the way is being paved for it now! It will happen throughout the entire world. For anyone to say it cannot happen is to deny the plain truth of the Bible.
Remember, if you take the Mark of the Beast your doom is sealed forever! "And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever, and they have no rest day nor by night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name." (Rev. 14:9-11.)
You will do One of Two things. You will either accept the Lord Jesus Christ, repent of your sins, be baptized (Acts 2:3739) and be cleansed in His blood, and escape the fiery judgements, or you will be "Left Behind" to go into the great Tribulation.
After coming to realize the enormity of their sins, the repentant Jews asked Peter and the rest of the Apostles: "Men and brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said to them, REPENT, and let every one of you be BAPTIZED in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call" (Acts 2:3739).
The Holy Ghost - The Holy Spirit - is holding back the powers of hell until the Bride of Christ is ready to leave the world. God said to the righteous Lot, "Haste thee, escape hither..." (Gen. 19:22.) Here we see that God could not rain fire and brimstone on Sodom until after Lot's escape.
Jesus said, "But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed." (Luke 17:29-30.)
Where will you hide when hell is turned loose upon this world?
God's Word declares if you run from one danger you are faced with another. "As if a man did flee from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house, and leaned his hand on the wall, and a serpent bit him." (Amos 5:19.)
"The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within; he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him." (Ezek. 7:15.)
Man made bomb shelters will not save you in the day of God's wrath.
Many have become "Survivalists" and are busy these days digging bomb shelters to save them from the oncoming storm. Many are hiding behind church membership and religious piety. Church membership will not save you. You may be a good, moral, upright citizen who goes in for straight living and square dealing, who attends church regularly and gives to charitable organizations liberally.
That will not save you in the day of God's wrath.
Your money will be worthless in that day.
"They shall cast their silver in the street- and their gold shall be removed. (Confiscated) Their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the Lord: they shall not satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels; because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity." (Ezek 7:19)
The only safe bomb shelter.
The man Christ Jesus is our only safe bomb shelter. "And a man shall be as an hiding place from the wind, and a cover from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land." (Isa. 32:2.)
Jesus Christ is a shelter in time of storm, He is a great ROCK "The stone which the builders rejected is become the head stone of the corner." (Psalms. 118:22. See Acts 4:11, and I Peter 2:6.)
The ROCK was smitten for us; when the soldier boy pierced the side of our precious Saviour more then nineteen hundred years ago. "But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water." (John 19:34.)
There is a cleft in the ROCK for us.
"And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me, and thou shalt stand upon a rock; and it shall come to pass, while my glory passeth by, that I will put thee in a cleft of the rock, and will cover thee with my hand while I pass by." (Exodus 33:21-22.)
Rock of ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in Thee,
Let the water and the blood
From Thy wounded side which flowed.
Be of sin the double cure,
Save from wrath, and make me pure.
Joining the church will not save you. World Religions will not save you. ALL your money will not save you.
Only Christ can save; He is the only way to heaven. He is the only Door to heaven. "Jesus saith unto him I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." ( St. John 14:6. also see St. John 10:9.)
"I am the door: by me if any man enter, he shall be saved..." Apart from Christ there is no life."He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." (1 John 5:12.)
The church cannot give you life. The priest or preacher cannot forgive your sins, or give you life. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful" and just to forgive us our sins and to deliver us from all unrighteousness." (I John 1:9.)
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned." (Mark 16:16)
Let Us Pray Together--
PRAY: "God be merciful to me a sinner. Receive me now for Christ's sake. Cleanse me from my sin by your precious blood, shed on the cross for me; lead me to be Baptized and fill me with your Holy Spirit. Teach me to pray each day; to read Your will for my life from your word, the Bible; and help me to worship and serve You in the fellowship of your church. I thank you Lord Jesus Christ. AMEN!
