The world will experience shocking events over the next five to ten years, yet most people are not even remotely prepared. The vast majority of Americans and Canadians—even most professing Christian ministers—will be profoundly affected and deeply hurt by what is to come.

Why?

Because the God of the Bible is unreal to them, and the inspired prophecies of the Bible are either unheeded or totally misunderstood.

Again, why?

The actual, demonstrable truth is that "mainstream" Christianity is totally off-track—"blinded" by Satan the devil—and cannot provide the genuine answers to life's problems, or give understanding of the enormous events that will soon affect our lives.

And you, our readers, do not have to wait very long to see what we are talking about! The events we have been predicting for years in the pages of this magazine are already beginning to occur—and will continue to occur with increasing impact and momentum. We at Tomorrow's World can be God's "watchman" for you and your loved ones—if you are willing to listen, to study and to prove these things for yourself. These prophetic events can help us see that God is real and that the very personal God revealed in the Bible is truly alive and is working out an awesome purpose here on earth. Once we fully grasp this fact, we can begin to face reality.

Obviously, in our free society, you can choose not to believe the God of the Bible. Like the vast majority, you can belong to no church at all, or be part of a "nice" church where you are "comfortable." But however "nice" you may find it, "mainstream" Christianity has rejected much of what the Bible actually says. Centuries ago, the name "Christian" was taken over by men who brought in all manner of pagan concepts regarding God, Christ, the Bible, and nearly every major doctrine. As historian Will Durant wrote in his book, The Story of Civilization: "Christianity... grew by the absorption of pagan faith and ritual; it became a triumphant Church by inheriting the organizing patterns and genius of Rome.... As Judea had given Christianity ethics, and Greece had given it theology, so now Rome gave it organization; all these, with a dozen absorbed and rival faiths, entered into the Christian synthesis" (Vol. 5, Durant, pp. 575, 618–619).

Those who took over the professing Christian church long ago absolutely rejected the true Christianity of Christ and His original apostles. Scores of respected church histories clearly document this! This is why God inspired the Apostle John to describe the devil, Satan, as the one "who deceives the whole world" (Revelation 12:9). The more than two billion "Christians" in the major denominations are certainly part of the "whole world" that John described—and they are deceived! These people and their preachers are not intending to be evil. For a deceived person does not know that he is deceived! It is important that we understand this distinction.

So I am not being "mean" by writing the above, for I am commanded by the God of heaven to preach the Truth. And I cannot help them—or you—if I simply mouth sweet platitudes and pretend that "all is well" when all is not well! For we are now nearing the very end of 6,000 years of human history under the influence of Satan the Devil—whom Jesus Christ called the "ruler of this world" (John 14:30).

God told ancient King Nebuchadnezzar: "They shall wet you with the dew of heaven, and seven times shall pass over you, till you know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men, and gives it to whomever He chooses" (Daniel 4:25). That very real God is now beginning to intervene and to humble the present rulers of nations, and to prepare the way for His divine government to be set up on this earth! The true Jesus Christ of the Bible is now preparing to literally return to this earth as "King of kings and Lord of lords" (Revelation 19:16). Soon, He will "strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron" (v. 15).

Because many of our leaders and our out-of-control courts are busily undermining and even attempting to destroy the effect of the Ten Commandments in our society, and because most Americans, Canadians, Britons and Europeans are going along with this approach, our Creator will soon begin to intervene to give us powerful corrective chastisement far beyond anything our modern society has ever experienced! Speaking in a dual prophecy, which applied to our ancestors first and now to us, God said: "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" (Leviticus 26:14–16).

Note that the very first punishment upon God's wayward people would be "terror"—terrorism! Just as the United States was shaken by terrorism on "9/11" in September 2001, so too was the United Kingdom shaken on "7/7" this past July. But we must realize that much more terrorism is ahead for our peoples, unless we repent and genuinely return to God and His righteous ways! Then—unless we repent—will come "wasting disease" and "fever." Then will come drought and famine (vv. 19–20).

Certainly AIDS is a major example of "wasting disease." Our godless society, which is increasingly condoning homosexuality and even homosexual "marriage," is certainly opening the door for an absolute pandemic of AIDS and other such diseases. Now we are also reading that top health authorities believe an emerging epidemic of avian flu ("bird flu") "could spark a global pandemic, infecting as much as a quarter of the world's population and killing as many as 180 million to 360 million people—at least seven times the number of AIDS deaths, all within a matter of weeks" (US News & World Report, June 27, 2005).

The above quotation comes from USN&WR editor-in-chief Mortimer Zuckerman, who concluded his editorial with these ominous words: "Imagine the chaos. These killer viruses simply can't be isolated in any part of the world. If avian flu were allowed to develop into a pandemic, it would be a direct threat to our health, security, and prosperity. The word influenza derives from the Latin influentia, reflecting the belief at the time that epidemics were due to the influence of the stars. Today, we have moved far beyond that fantasy, but even so, the world is clearly not ready for an avian-flu pandemic. With the scientific consensus already shifting from if to when the next global outbreak takes place, we have no time to lose."

My friends, the key to your future happiness—and your very survival—is to be willing to sincerely listen to the Truth. Tomorrow's World magazine is a unique publication. We are free to speak the full Truth. We know we are literally risking our lives by telling you many unpleasant truths about our present society, about real Christianity and about the magnificent purpose for your life. All we ask is that you read and listen with open minds and hearts, and that you take the time to follow this instruction from the Bible: "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good" (1 Thessalonians 5:21, KJV).

If you do so, then as terrorism continues to strike our peoples with increasing fury, as the disease epidemics predicted in Leviticus 26 and Matthew 24 (and elsewhere) begin to occur, you will understand why—and you will genuinely turn to the God of the Bible. As the drought, famine and increasing earthquakes begin to strike our American and British-descended peoples as never before, you will truly begin to understand that we at Tomorrow's World, even with all of our human faults, are being used by the God of creation to warn our peoples of what lies just ahead, and to inspire them to look beyond the immediate future to the glorious Kingdom of God—the reign of Jesus Christ on this earth.

As you become willing to heed God's instructions through His called and chosen servants, and as you become willing to do what God says, you can become a vital part of the "team" that Jesus Christ is preparing to assist Him in bringing peace and joy to this confused world. As Jesus Himself said: "And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—'He shall rule them with a rod of iron; they shall be dashed to pieces like the potter's vessels'—as I also have received from My Father" (Revelation 2:26–27). And as the Apostle Paul was inspired to write: "Do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Do you not know that we shall judge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?" (1 Corinthians 6:2–3).

God's supreme purpose for your life goes far beyond what most ministers and most churches even remotely understand. But the Bible makes it clear. So, please be willing to listen, to check up on what you hear and to prove the Truth from your own Bible. Then you may come to recognize how Tomorrow's World can help you understand what is really going on here on earth and can help you, personally, face reality.
