THE GOOD NEWS MINISTRY AND MISSIONS OUTREACH PROCLAIMING THE SOON RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST!
REVEALING THE END OF TIME!
The End of time is coming. The day of the Lord's return is closer then ever before.
"The heavens will pass away with a rush and a roar, the elements will be destroyed in the fierce heat, The earth and all its works will vanish."
"But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgement and perdition of ungodly men. 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 hastening 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 Pet. 3:7, 10-12.)
The Bible is the greatest Scientific Book in the world. These words were spoken by the apostle Peter under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit nearly nineteen hundred years ago. Peter, the unlearned fisherman, speaking under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, was a greater Scientist than Harvey, Edison, Einstein or any other great Scientist the world has produced.
Peter declared, THAT THE EARTH IS STORED WITH FIRE,. We know that this is a scientific fact. This world in which we live is about twenty-five thousand miles in circumference, nearly eight thousand miles in diameter. It is a great hollow ball with an outer crust about forty-five miles in depth, stored with liquid fire, molten elements, flames of fire seething and boiling down in the heart of this earth. It is like the shell on an egg. On this shell or outer crust we live, build our homes.
We are actually walking on the shell of a boiling pot of flames. We see in some places where the crust is so thin that volcanoes shoot hundreds of feet into the air; pouring out liquid flames and burning lava; destroying whole cities, and thousands perish in this liquid river of fire.
These giant volcanoes cause such great upheavals on the floor of the ocean that it hurls great tidal waves on the shore many miles away.
It is estimated there is a lake of fire in the heart of the earth that is seventy-eight hundred miles in diameter.
Hell Is In The Heart Of THis Earth
"Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations." (Isaiah. 14:9.)
Isaiah said, "Hell from beneath," that is, underneath, or the heart of the earth. Yes, as sure as the Bible is true, there is a literal hell burning with fire and brimstone. The scriptures give us the location of it, it is in the heart of the earth. Hell is a prison house for the fallen angels. "For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgement."(2 Pet. 2:4.)
It is a prison house for the departed spirits of all who rejected the Lord Jesus Christ.
The rich man who is a representative of the lost, is in hell today. He has all his five senses. "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in the flame." (Luke 16:23-24.)
"AFTER DEATH THE JUDGEMENT," (See Heb. 9:27.) When the Spirit leaves the body, it goes either to Paradise or the flames of hell.
Think Of The Multiple-Millions Of Wicked Souls In Hell Today. In The Flames Of Fire: All Hope Gone Forever, There To Live Throughout Eternity.
Some have said, " I do not believe that a just God would send anyone to the flames of hell." GOD DOES NOT SEND ANYONE TO HELL. He loved the world so much that He gave His only begotten Son to die for us, to pay the death penalty for us. Jesus Christ is God's great Fire Escape for us.
You may say, "I dont believe in hell" I tell you my friend, you will when you get there! By then it will be too late! Much too late!
By accepting the True Christ we escape the flames of hell. No greater sin could one commit than to reject the precious Son of God; that died that we might live. He rose again and is sitting at the right hand of His Father pleading for us now.
AFTER THE SAINTS OF GOD ARE CAUGHT AWAY, HELL WILL BE TURNED LOOSE ON THIS EARTH.
The tormenting demons that are chained in hell will be turned loose upon the earth during the Great Tribulation period. See Rev. 9th chapter. The scriptures declare that when hell is uncapped or opened that smoke will come out of it; like the smoke of a great furnace, so great that it will darken the sun and the air. ( See Rev. 9:8.)
THE ATMOSPHERE OF THIS EARTH IS A BLANKET COMPOSED OF THE MOST EXPLOSIVE ELEMENTS, TWO OF THESE NITROGEN AND OXYGEN, THE MOST COMBUSTIBLE OF ALL GASES.
Nitrogen is used in our high explosives such as dynamite, TNT. and Nitroglycerine. There is also in the atmosphere a great amount of water which consists of oxygen and hydrogen. Did you ever think that the very air you breathe is combustible? Think of the power of the nuclear bombs that are stored throughout the world. It is estimated by Scientists that an all out, nuclear attack would kill about one hundred and thirty-five million people. If one all out attack would destroy that many people, how many attacks like that would it take to completely annihilate civilization? John the Revelator declared, "by these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouth." (Rev. 9:18.)
One third of mankind would equal - - - Two Billion or more People!
GOD'S WORD DECLARES THAT, WILL HE NOT MAKE A FULL END?.
"I beheld the earth, and, lo, it was without form, and void; and the heavens, and they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and, lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly. I beheld, and, lo, there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens were fled. I beheld, and, lo, the fruitful place was a wilderness, and all the cities thereof were broken down at the presence of the Lord, and by His fierce anger. For thus hath the Lord said, The whole land shall be desolate; YET WILL I NOT MAKE A FULL END." (Jer. 5:23-27.)
Jesus said, "And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened." (Matt. 24:22.)
God will step in and shorten mans destructive program before all the peoples of the earth are annihilated.
DID YOU EVER HEAR A GREAT EXPLOSION? THINK OF THE DEAFENING ROAR OF POWERFUL GUNS AND CANNONS: POWERFUL EXPLOSIONS OF DYNAMITE AND OTHER COMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS THAT WILL ALMOST DEAFEN ONE.
Peter declared, "THE HEAVENS WILL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE." That is the atmosphere around us. When God permits man to pull the trigger that will ignite the atmosphere surrounding this globe, which is composed mostly of oxygen, nitrogen and hydrogen, the jolt from the explosion of the atmosphere will be so great that it will shake the stars from their orbits. Jesus said, ". . . And the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; the earth will be moved from its place."
"THEREFORE I WILL SHAKE THE HEAVENS, AND THE EARTH SHALL REMOVE OUT OF HER PLACE, IN THE WRATH OF THE LORD OF HOSTS, AND IN THE DAY OF HIS FIERCE ANGER."
As the earth is shaken from its orbit, no doubt, it will be moved closer to the sun. The sun will scorch men with fire. (See Rev. 16:8.)
We can certainly believe that Peter's prophecy will have a partial fulfillment right after the True Church is raptured.
For he said, "The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night." This refers to the Rapture of The True and Faithful Church. (See I Thess. 5:2.)
The next verse declares after the Lord comes as a thief in the night, there will be sudden destruction come upon this earth. just as soon as the Lord takes His bride out of this world, it will rain fire from heaven. ( See Luke 17:29, 30, Isaiah. 26:19-21.)
The atomic and hydrogen bombs will begin falling upon this earth, the atmosphere will be ignited, all hell will be turned loose upon the ungodly It would take volumes of books to write and explain all the plagues and the trouble that will come upon this ungodly world, after Jesus takes his bride out. Space will not permit us to write it, but read for yourself in the book of Revelation, in the Gospels the words of Jesus, in the Epistles, and throughout the Old Testament.
THE BIBLE SPEAKS IN THUNDERING TONES OF THE DARK DAYS THAT ARE COMING, UPON THIS WORLD. MANY, OF THE WORLD'S GREATEST SCIENTISTS NOW BELIEVE THE PROPHECIES IN THE BIBLE; CONCERNING THE POWER OF THE ATOMIC AND HYDROGEN BOMBS.
WHY ARE THERE SCOFFERS?
The Dictionary says, "Scoff means to: "Show one's scorn in derision, or mockery, irreverence." Peter said "That these Scoffers would come in the last days." We have them today, many of them. Some of that number at one time had a good experience with the Lord. Some of them, no doubt, at one time preached the "Coming of The Lord" as being imminent. In one of my revival campaigns recently, I announced I would preach the next night on the "Second Coming of Jesus," Lord willing. After the benediction I shook hands with a man and said to him, "I hope to see you tomorrow night," he replied, "I will not be here tomorrow night, since you are preaching on the Second Coming of Jesus, I have heard that subject preached on many years ago." That is the attitude of many today. Jesus said, ". . . If that evil servant shall say in his heart, My Lord delayeth His coming . . ." (Matt. 24:48.)
He will not speak it out in an audible voice, Jesus said he would say it in his heart.
HE WILL BEGIN TO SMITE HIS FELLOW SERVANT AND TO EAT AND DRINK WITH THE DRUNKEN,
"Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 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. But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, 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: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."(Matt. 24:44-49)
The apostate pastors and ministers of today the supposed servants of God, would rather attack, smite and devour one another, than to preach on, The Realities of Hell or "The Second Coming of Jesus."
When you hear any professing, supposed Christian, Christians in name only, backbiting, attacking or trying to put down and ridiculing some of God's True and Faithful Bible Believing Children, just remember, the Lord said they would come in the last days. Many of the ladies decorate themselves like jezebels or harlots and the men join in with them and tell them it is no harm. They vigorously involve themselves in pleasures, in accumulating wealth, property and engaging in the Business of The world, instead of being about God's Business. They go to ungodly shows and see ungodly pictures on television, listen to ungodly music, some of them have backslid so far they can drink their beer, take drugs, engage in all manner of immorality and drink hard liquor. Down in their heart they will scoff and mock at those who preach and testify that, "Jesus is Coming Very Soon." My dear friends, let me warn you, do not be partakers with them.
GOD FOREWARNED US THROUGH HIS HOLY APOSTLE PETER, THAT THESE SCOFFERS WOULD COME IN THE LAST DAYS.
"Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward-us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 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? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless." (2 Peter 3:3-14)
Why are they Scoffing and Mocking The True People of God, That Believe In Purity and Holiness and that faithfully preach the Imminent Second Coming of Our Lord? Peter tells us why, "IT IS BECAUSE THEY ARE WALKING AFTER THEIR OWN LUSTS. THEY ARE NOT READY FOR THE LORD'S COMING, THEY DON'T WANT HIM TO COME."
Many of them know the Lord is coming for a Glorious Church Without Spot or Wrinkle.
The True Holy Spirit speaking through the apostle Paul declared that in the last days some would depart from the faith. "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits; and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron."(I Tim. 4:1-2.)
Here we see their conscience is seared with a hot iron; they have hardened their hearts. Paul said, "They would depart from the faith." This is proof they are backsliders. "Thus saith the Lord God; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!" (Ezek. 13:3.)
Isaiah describes these last day mockers who are walking after their own lust, calling evil good and good evil.
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink: Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him." (Isaiah. 5:20-23.)
WE ARE NEAR THE END OF THE AGE.
Peter said, "Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, WHAT MANNER OF PERSONS OUGHT YE TO BE IN ALL HOLY CONVERSATION AND GODLINESS." (I Pet. 3:11-12.)
In verse 12 he said, "Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God . . ." Literally it means, hastening the coming of the day of the Lord. What does it mean, hastening the coming of the Lord? We hasten His coming by being about God's Business - "The Great Commission" - by praying for His coming, by furthering the preaching of the Gospel for a Witness to All Nations, and bringing in those whom the long suffering of God waits to save.
DO YOU WANT THE LORD TO COME? WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO HASTEN HIS COMING?
Are you keeping His Commandments? "Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city." (Rev. 22:14.)
Here is proof that you will never be a partaker of the "Tree of Life" and enter in through the gates of the city, unless you keep the Lord's commandments.
Let us note some of His commandments: " Repent and Be Baptized" "Ye must be born again" "Be ye holy'; "Be filled with the Spirit"; "Be not drunk." These are His commandments. Many who read this are keeping these commandments, but how about His greatest commandment, given by our great Commander In-Chief, the Lord Jesus Christ? "Go."
Where shall we go Lord? "GO therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age" (Matthew 28:1820).
In all the four gospels we have the Great Commission. Matt., Mark, Luke and John. (See Matt. 28:18-20.)
"Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you." (John 20:21.)
". . . Ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all judaea, and in Samaria, AND UNTO THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH." (Acts 1:8.)
Here we have the positive commands of the Lord Jesus Christ. Will you obey His Command? You may not be called to preach, but you can witness to those around you. All are not called to go to a Foreign Field, for you have a mission field right at home, But ALL ARE CALLED, EITHER TO GO ABROAD OR TO SERVE AT HOME!
The End cannot come until the Gospel is Preached to All Nations. GOD IS DOING A QUICK WORK, WE ARE HIS AMBASSADORS. HIS STEWARDS. HE HAS GIVEN EVERYONE OF US A TALENT. ALL THE MATERIAL WEALTH WE HAVE, GOD HAS GIVEN IT TO US. He has entrusted us with the money to be used to further the Gospel, We are responsible as His Stewards. On tithes and offerings belong to God. God did not intend for all the Tithes and offerings to be stored up in Banks, while hundreds of millions have never heard the precious Name of Jesus. It is certainly God's will for as much of the tithes and offerings to be used in reaching the heathen, as we use here in North America, to reach the unsaved.
GOD TELLS US IN HIS WORD THAT THOSE WHO SERVE HIM IN FAITHFULNESS AND HOLINESS, WILL BE AMONG THAT NUMBER WHEN HE COMES TO MAKE UP HIS JEWELS.
They will be spared from the destruction that is coming upon this world when the atomic bombs begin to fall.
"AND THEY SHALL BE MINE, SAITH THE LORD OF HOSTS, IN THAT DAY WHEN I MAKE UP MY JEWELS AND I WILL SPARE THEM, AS A MAN SPARETH HIS OWN SON THAT SERVETH HIM." (Mal. 3:17.)
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!
