Most people do not like to face reality, especially when looming reality is unpleasant. It is much easier to look the other way—hoping that "bad things" will never happen. It is also easier to procrastinate than to take action.
Most people do not like to face reality, especially when looming reality is unpleasant. It is much easier to look the other way—hoping that "bad things" will never happen. It is also easier to procrastinate than to take action. For action demands effort, and real action might require changing things rather than comfortably drifting along.
But as a servant of the living God, I am a "watchman" for the modern "House of Israel" (not just Judah). I am required to warn God's people of what lies ahead. The inspired word of God says: "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand. So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me" (Ezekiel 33:6–7).
God also tells His servants: "Cry aloud, spare not; lift up your voice like a trumpet; tell My people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins" (Isaiah 58:1).
I must solemnly warn you faithful subscribers—those of you who understand—that events and movements now underway should be a definite "signal" to you and to me that the end of this present age is truly at hand. For now a virtual avalanche of filth and pornography is descending upon our society. More and more films and television productions are emphasizing the misuse of sex in every possible way. Besides regularly depicting horrifying and gratuitous violence, and fornication and adultery, our "entertainment" increasingly emphasizes various forms of sexual perversion.
Even worse, perhaps, is that many of our leading politicians and judges are helping promote these perverted lifestyles that are being foisted upon our unthinking peoples. Liberal politicians have even attacked and tried to discredit the President of the United States for supporting a constitutional amendment declaring that legitimate marriage is between one man and one woman!
How far we have come!
What this deceived world does not understand, but what you Tomorrow's World readers need to understand, is that this type of behavior certainly indicates that the end of this world's society really is very near. In what is truly a fundamental prophecy for our English-speaking world, the Eternal God outlined for our forefathers certain basic issues.
God said: "If you walk in My statutes and keep My commandments, and perform them, then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely" (Leviticus 26:3–5).
However, God stated: "But if you do not obey Me, and do not observe all these commandments, and if you despise My statutes, or if your soul abhors My judgments, so that you do not perform all My commandments, but break My covenant, I also will do this to you: I will even appoint terror over you, wasting disease and fever which shall consume the eyes and cause sorrow of heart. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it" (vv. 14–16). The prophecy continues, describing the truly awful things that will happen if His people do not come to their senses and obey their Creator: "And after all this, if you do not obey Me, then I will punish you seven times more for your sins. I will break the pride of your power; I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like bronze. And your strength shall be spent in vain; for your land shall not yield its produce, nor shall the trees of the land yield their fruit" (vv. 18–20).
If there is still not repentance, more corrective punishments are to follow: "I will lay your cities waste… I will scatter you among the nations and draw out a sword after you; your land shall be desolate and your cities waste" (vv. 31–33).
It will be tempting for many liberals to "make fun" of these ancient prophecies. However, sad to say, these prophesied events will soon begin to happen unless our people come to a deep and sincere repentance before the God of creation! But we have already gone so far and sunk so low that this is extremely unlikely to happen.
Back in the 1940s and 1950s, when I was a young man, most Americans and Britons were only mildly religious. But they still had a certain respect for the idea of a real God, for the Ten Commandments and for the traditional family structure. Our leading politicians and leaders still exhibited a respect for the Bible. Sexual acts were not seen on television, or in the average motion picture theatre—and certainly not even the inference of perverted acts!
But today, many if not most in the entertainment industry obviously despise the God of the Bible and His laws and statutes, and hundreds of mainstream ministers and politicians "just go along." So now we have "arrived." The Creator has every reason, at this point, to begin to chastise our peoples before it is too late.
Even those politicians, professing Christian ministers and entertainment moguls who do not actively promote perverted behaviors generally "go along" and try to speak approvingly—or at least remain neutral—saying nothing to rouse our people from their spiritual lethargy. They ignore the very direct instruction of the Apostle Paul: "Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Corinthians 6:18–20).
God also spoke to our fathers in a companion prophecy in Deuteronomy 28. After promising awesome blessings for obedience to His ways, God gave this solemn warning: "But it shall come to pass, if you do not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today, that all these curses will come upon you and overtake you: Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. Cursed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl. Cursed shall be the fruit of your body and the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks. Cursed shall you be when you come in, and cursed shall you be when you go out" (Deuteronomy 28:15–19).
If we continue to despise God's commandments and statutes, these specific prophecies will begin to come to pass! Later, God continues in this powerful prophecy: "The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail. Moreover all these curses shall come upon you and pursue and overtake you, until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the voice of the Lord your God, to keep His commandments and His statutes which He commanded you" (vv. 43–45).
More and more American jobs are being taken away by foreigners. As columnist Lou Dobbs recently wrote: "Illegals displace more than 700,000 American workers annually. In fact, the total direct cost of illegal immigration to our economy, including social services, is roughly $20 billion per year. To the costs of illegal immigration, add the exporting of America: the outsourcing of U.S. jobs to cheap overseas labor markets. No one has yet calculated the total cost to our economy of the hundreds of thousands of jobs shipped overseas by what Democratic Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts calls 'Benedict Arnold companies.' The most striking evidence of our national dependences is the U.S. trade deficit. The U.S. trade shortfall with Japan and China alone will total about $190 billion for 2003. Almost half of U.S. treasury bonds are now owned in Asia. 'We are too dependent on foreign capital,' says Peter Morici, professor of logistics, business, and public policy at the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business" (U.S. News & World Report, Feb. 9, 2004).
Although the U.S. was the world's greatest lender just a few years ago, it is now easily the world's greatest borrower! As reported by Reuters on Feb. 18, 2004: "The U.S. government's national debt—the accumulation of past budget shortfalls—totaled more than $7 trillion for the first time as of Tuesday, according to a Treasury Department report. In its daily financial statement released on Wednesday, the Treasury said the U.S. debt subject to a congressionally set limit totaled $7.015 trillion, up from $6.983 trillion on Friday." This Reuters release went on to quote a reaction from a member of the U.S. House of Representatives: "Rep. Baron Hill of Indiana, part of a centrist group of Democrats said, 'It is simply immoral to run a national debt exceeding $7 trillion, every penny of which our children and grandchildren will be responsible for paying back.'"
Yes, it is certainly "immoral" for our politicians in both parties to keep promising more and more, spending more and more and absolutely bankrupting our future!
But we need to "connect the dots." All of these events are occurring because we have turned away from the God who gave us our national blessings in the first place. Today, many want to remove the Ten Commandments from the public square. Some even want to remove the words "under God" from the Pledge of Allegiance and "In God We Trust" from our currency. In such an anti-God environment, is it any wonder that so many want to defy our Creator's very words about marriage: "Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: 'This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.' Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh" (Genesis 2:22–24)?
So what does the Eternal God propose to do to wake us up? The prophecy of Deuteronomy 28 gives us the answer: "Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you. The Lord will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand, a nation of fierce countenance, which does not respect the elderly nor show favor to the young" (vv. 47–50).
For a complete explanation of the background of this prophecy and for biblical and historical proof of our national origins, be sure to write for our eye-opening booklet, The United States and Great Britain in Prophecy. You truly need this information to understand end-time events now starting to unfold! This attractive booklet will be sent absolutely free upon your request.
I have given you this brief warning because I sincerely hope that all of you subscribers can understand and take action while there is still time. Bit by bit, you and I are going to have to witness more and more circumstances "going wrong" for the U.S., Canada, Britain and our English-speaking world. Step by step, the Eternal God is going to shake our nations and humble our peoples as never before in hopes that many will wake up in time to arise in the first resurrection.
In each issue of Tomorrow's World magazine you will be given further information about the unfolding drama of end-time prophecy. You, personally, need not be afraid—if you are willing to take action. For Jesus Christ told His faithful disciples: "Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near" (Luke 21:28).
