St. John Sees New Jerusalem
by Gustaf Dorée
So many today are seeking for real answers. As the outlook gets darker,
the uplook gets only brighter.
These last few years the world has gone from
one Earth-shaking crisis to another. While some say that we are on the
threshold of a Brave New World Order, others warn that humanity
now totters on the brink of unprecedented disaster and chaos!
Reading the news nowadays is not the most cheerful way to start the day!
Day by day the world's problems grow more desperate and insurmountable.
The question which plagues every thinking person is...What lies ahead?
But has any mortal man ever been able
to transcend the bounds of time & peer into the future? Throughout
history there have been many who have claimed such powers, and some like
Nostradamus, the Fatima Children, Edgar Cayce and Jeane Dixon
[discussed later on] are widely accepted as having
predicted various future events.
of years ago,
ancient prophets and seers of the Bible
received trance-like visions enabling them to see far into the
future, sometimes thousands of years ahead. They heard voices of angels
speaking the words of God and they wrote them down for all generations
to follow: even detailed acccurate descriptions of the Last
Days of man's rule
on earth, the times in which we are now living! How
does God know
the future?! Daniel
Many of these predictions and prophecies
tell us exactly what our world would be like just before the Return
of Jesus and His take-over of this world! Most of these predictions are
already being fulfilled in this generation
today! It shows that the "countdown" has begun and we are
living in the great Time of the End!
The Bible and the words of God are actually the only real newspapers
in the world! Regular newspapers only tell us what already
happened!--Yesterday! So they're not really newspapers,
but rather history papers! The Bible tells us what
is going to happen tomorrow! It is full of thousands of
already fulfilled, detailed prophecies, actually describing
specific people, places, times, situations and events, often thousands
of years before they came into being. Isaiah
stage is now being set for the fulfillment of one awesome vision that
many of these seers had in common: an event so cataclysmic that it will
change the World as we now know it, for ever...the final apocalypse and
Armageddon! And the hope of millions of people in these the Last
Days of the dramatic
wonderful and hopeful Return of Jesus Christ
from the skies, just as predicted when He left this Earth 2000 years ago.
there is a God in Heaven that reveals secrets, and makes
known... what shall be in the
Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these."
2:28 "We have
also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take
heed, as unto a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawn, and
the day star arises in your hearts:
Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private
interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the
will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were moved
by the Holy Ghost." 2
