Natural Disasters

How the World Will End

Examine the major signs of the end of the world as we know it, straight from Bible prophecy, as outlined in this video. Some signs we have begun to see—full rejection of God and the Bible, unprecedented natural disasters and diseases, and a complete reordering of world powers—and other biblical signs are coming soon. What's next? Find out in this episode of Tomorrow's World.

[The text below represents an edited transcript of this Tomorrow’s World program.]

The Inevitable End

The crazy old guys in the cartoons that used to wear signs saying “The End Is Nigh” were right—the end of the world IS coming upon us! In fact, the Bible describes the end of the world IN DETAIL. Hollywood always gets it wrong—but we’re going to get it RIGHT. Join us RIGHT NOW on Tomorrow’s World as we reveal HOW THE WORLD WILL END!

Seven Signs of the End Times

The end of the world has occupied the fancies and fantasies of human beings for ages. Movies sometimes paint pictures of asteroids striking our world and wiping out all of humanity like the dinosaurs of old, or else send earth off in a blaze of glory as the militaries of the world duke it out with aliens from afar—or zombies, or intelligent machines, or whatever else is in vogue at the time. In early 2022, director Roland Emmerich, always looking for a new way to destroy the world, smashed the moon into us. Even our science programming has gotten into the act, with quasi-documentaries detailing how our vulnerable planet could be wiped out by climate change, disrupted by a passing black hole, or eventually eaten by our swollen sun.

But none of these things are going to happen—at least not exactly.

Let me be clear: When we speak of “the end of the world,” we’re not talking about the end of the planet. God says through King Solomon in Ecclesiastes,

One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever (Ecclesiastes 1:4).

No, God has plans for this planet, as the Bible reveals.

Rather, we are speaking of the END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. The end of our world’s civilizations, societies, economies, institutions, and systems; the end of this age in which we now live, and the destruction of everything we consider familiar. THAT is what we mean by “the end of the world.”

And today, we will discuss seven ingredients to the end of the world—some of which are happening in the world right now before our very eyes.

The first element of the world’s end we’ll discuss would surprise most of our Hollywood and scientific doomsday planners, since it is something that rarely shows up on their radar. It isn’t an asteroid or a physical threat, at all. It is entirely SPIRITUAL.

The first ingredient of the end of the world is RAMPANT WORLDWIDE IMMORALITY AND GODLESSNESS.

Ultimately, any civilization stands or falls in connection to its relationship with its Creator. And the beginning of the end of the world lies in an utter abandonment of that relationship.

We read of the conditions that result from that rampant immorality and godlessness in the Apostle Paul’s second letter to Timothy. In 2 Timothy 3, starting in verse 1, we read:

But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power (2 Timothy 3:1–5).

In Matthew 24:12, Jesus Christ described this element of the world’s end, as well, saying, “And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.”

This “lawlessness” is not just an abandoning of, say, traffic laws, or tax laws, but a pervasive spirit of casting aside the laws of God. And, frankly, we see that growing today, don’t we? The morality and guidelines of the Bible are increasingly cast aside as archaic and out-of-date—even as the world grows all the colder, crueler, and more loveless for it.

It is this moral and spiritual dimension of the end of the world that enables all the others. Yet, for all of our worries concerning the environment, or nuclear war, or health regulations, it is our devotion to God that goes neglected. And it is our lack of devotion to God that will initiate the end of the world.

Global Consequences for Moral Collapse

The next ingredient to the world’s end is UNPRECEDENTED PESTILENCE, FAMINE, AND NATURAL DISASTERS.

Of course, we live with these concerns in our lives today. Pestilence, or disease, has plagued mankind from its earliest days, and the nightmarish years of COVID-19—both the disease itself and our governments’ fumbling attempts to deal with it—will not be soon forgotten. Famine has long ravaged various populations of the earth, sometimes due to weather or soil conditions, but also due to human cruelty or incompetence—such as the forced starvation of Ukrainians by the Soviet government in the early 1930s that killed millions. And natural disasters are ever with us. The day I began working on this program, my wife and I were at a friend’s house when news alerts warned us of a potential tornado, causing us to quickly consider where we might take shelter.

But the diseases, famines, and natural disasters coming at the end of the world will be unlike anything humanity has ever seen. Jesus Christ predicted these events in His famous Olivet Prophecy, as we see in Matthew 24, beginning in verse 7:

For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows (Matthew 24:7–8).

We see His words reflected in the vision He gave His servant John in the book of Revelation. There, in chapter 6, John describes the third and fourth of the famous Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse—the rider on the black horse, with scales in his hand, picturing devastating famine, and the rider on the sickly, pale horse, whose name was Death, picturing unrelenting disease. Revelation 6:8 tells us that these Four Horsemen, together, have an almost unbelievable impact on humanity:

And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth (Revelation 6:8).

If the population of the earth is around 8 billion people by that time, then Christ inspired John to write that these forces would kill around TWO BILLION PEOPLE—one-fourth of mankind. We are talking about devastation on an unimaginable scale.

As the end of the world advances, we will see another ingredient added to the mix: THE COMPLETE REORDERING OF GLOBAL POWER.

For now, most would agree that the United States maintains a grip on its position as the most powerful nation in the world—though that grip is increasingly tenuous. Great Britain remains a relatively strong ally to the U.S., as does Canada. Europe struggles to remain united to fulfill its leaders’ visions of greatness, China strives to dominate its region and seize superpower status, as Russia pursues plans of its own. Meanwhile the Middle East remains a fractured collection of individual states, often sharing common enemies, but not always a common purpose.

Yet the end of the world will see all of these power relationships reorganized and reordered into something far different.

Daniel 11 speaks of a King of the North, which represents a powerful and united European entity—one we will come to again later—and a King of the South—a unified bloc of nations in the Middle East and North Africa. Verse 44 of Daniel 11 points us to a power bloc east of these, and the book of Revelation describes this eastern power as possessing an UNIMAGINABLY vast army of 200 MILLION men, as well as weapons of mass destruction.

The conflict between these end-time powerhouses is said in Revelation 9:18 to be responsible for killing ONE-THIRD of mankind—a toll no war has ever taken throughout the annals of time.

What you DON’T see among the great powers at the end of the world are the United States or Great Britain and the nations that descended from her. Those nations will already have fallen—their cities devastated, and the survivors scattered among the nations as captives and servants, as described in Ezekiel 5:12:

One-third of you shall die of the pestilence, and be consumed with famine in your midst; and one-third shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter another third to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them (Ezekiel 5:12).

My colleague Gerald Weston has covered this aspect of Ezekiel’s prophecy thoroughly in our program “Ezekiel’s Message Unlocked.” I encourage you to visit our website or YouTube channel, where you can view that powerful message and come to understand the fate of the United States, Great Britain, and English-speaking peoples of the world.

Yet, in all these rearranged political powers and alliances of the world, the end of the world will feature one particular power that will tower over all the others.

The Rise of a New Superpower, and World War on a Massive Scale

That is the fourth element we’ll examine today: WORLDWIDE DOMINANCE BY A NEW SUPERPOWER.

This superpower is the entity known in prophecy as the BEAST OF REVELATION. This political, economic, and military powerhouse will be headed by a singular individual, the Beast, and it will stand out amongst all others in that day in an astonishing way. We read a description of this man and the power he wields in Revelation 13. After describing the strange creature he saw in vision—providing details that help to IDENTIFY this entity in world history, past and future—John writes:

… all the world marveled and followed the beast. So they worshiped the dragon who gave authority to the beast; and they worshiped the beast, saying, “Who is like the beast? Who is able to make war with him?” (Revelation 13:3–4).

Now note: The whole world follows this Beast, and the military capacity of this entity is like none the world has ever seen.

You’ll notice that Revelation 13 said that the Beast was worshiped. This worship is enabled and enhanced by the next ingredient of our “end of the world” mixture: THE RISE OF AN ULTRA-POWERFUL FALSE CHRISTIANITY.

Later, in Revelation 13:11, we see in John’s vision a SECOND beast arising, different than the first beast:

Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men (Revelation 13:11–13).

This second beast looks like a lamb—that is, he APPEARS to be Christ-like. Yet John says it “spoke like a dragon”—that is, he teaches the subtle twisted truths of Satan the Devil. This False Prophet is the infamous Antichrist, foretold in numerous passages of the Bible. He will come working miracles and wonders and the false Christianity that he preaches will dominate world religions and provide support for the European Beast of Revelation. Together, these two will form an unholy alliance of Church and State and will persecute the small flock of true saints of Jesus Christ.

Suffice it to say for now that the actions they stir upon the earth lead humanity to the brink of utter destruction—to the potential destruction of ALL LIFE ON EARTH. As Jesus Christ Himself described this time,

And unless those days were shortened, NO FLESH would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened (Matthew 24:22).

Yet, those days WILL be shortened! They will be interrupted by the next element of the end of this world: DIVINE INTERVENTION DURING THE DAY OF THE LORD.

The sins of mankind will have reached their fullness, and God will declare that He has had ENOUGH! The announcement of the Almighty’s intervention in world affairs is described in Revelation 6, beginning in verse 12:

I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves 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 who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Revelation 6:12–17).

This begins a year-long period of divine intervention known as the Day of the Lord—when the powers of this earth learn where REAL power truly lies!

God’s Supreme Intervention and the Beginning of a New World

We’ve been through cataclysmic moral degradation; experienced unprecedented natural disasters; and witnessed the rearrangement of world powers. We’ve seen that one power will rise above the rest, and that this power, in conjunction with a false global religion claiming the name of Jesus Christ, will seek to destroy those who bear His name truly as they seek to worship Him in spirit AND in truth. And we’ve seen the Creator of All Things step into history to put the powers of the world in their place and to send His Son Jesus Christ back to earth to set things right.

And amidst the rubble of all that had gone before, we finally come to the last ingredient in the end of the world as we know it: THE ESTABLISHMENT OF A BRAND NEW WORLD to take its place!

Once Jesus Christ and His heavenly armies have rid the world of the Beast power, the Antichrist, and all the worldly forces who foolishly sought to oppose Him, He will send His angel to lock Satan the Devil away from mankind for 1,000 years.

Then, Revelation 20:4 tells us that, in his vision, the Apostle John saw

thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years (Revelation 20:4).

Yes, the resurrected martyrs, and ALL who have lived and died in Jesus Christ before His return will be resurrected, joining those who are alive at His return to rule by His side in power, glory, and majesty.

This period of 1,000 years will be a time when the Kingdom of God will reign on earth, beginning at Jerusalem and spreading over the entire earth, utterly replacing every element of the old world with the joys and glories of the new! The saints, together with Jesus Christ, will work to make this world what it SHOULD HAVE BEEN ALL ALONG: A place of beauty, peace, order, and love. The ultimate cause of that new world is described in Isaiah 11:9:

They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD As the waters cover the sea” (Isaiah 11:9).

As the true knowledge of the way of God grows to cover the world over 1,000 years, the world as we have known it so far will truly have come to an end. And a brand NEW world will have begun—a world with joys and wonders that will last not just for a time, but for eternity.

A World Held Captive

The ancient Greek Myth of Daedalus and Icarus tell the fascinating tale of a daring attempt to gain freedom. That which was supposed to set Icarus free ultimately imprisoned him even further. Sadly, there are many parallels between this story and that of mankind. How many inventions, movements and peace treaties have come along which have promised to set us free, yet the end result is the opposite? To put it another way, in terms of solving the worlds most basic problems, how often does it feel as though we take three steps forward, only to fall five more back?

Extreme Weather Hits Australia... Again

What used to be considered once-in-a-century or even once-in-500-years rain events in Australia are occurring with far greater frequency. For the last two weeks, the country’s heavily populated eastern coast has been inundated with rainfall levels breaking all records. A meter of rain, almost an entire year’s worth, fell on Brisbane in a three-day period.

Seven Mysteries of Revelation

Begin to understand the visions and prophecies in the book of Revelation when you watch this Tomorrow's World episode. It explains seven key components of Bible prophecy, including the sequence of end-time events, the rise of the beast power, and Armageddon—the ultimate battle of good and evil.

[The text below represents an edited transcript of this Tomorrow’s World program.]

Important Bible Mysteries Revealed!

The book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse, is a mysterious book to most people. This Revelation is the last book in your Bible. And yet, it is one of the most important books in the world! Why? Because it reveals the future of humanity, and the future of planet earth! But there are symbols and secrets that challenge us. The four horsemen of the apocalypse destroy one-fourth of all people on the earth in their famous ride. A harlot rides a beast with seven heads and ten horns. The writer of Revelation, the Apostle John, sees another beast with seven heads and ten horns rising up out of the sea. And then the final battle of World War III, Armageddon, determines the victory between good and evil.

My friends, you need to know the secrets of this mysterious book. The mystery of Revelation has been unveiled! You need to know the mysteries of this last book in your Bible. You need to know the prophesied future and the ultimate future for you and your family. You need to know its good news! Today, I’ll share with you seven mysteries of Revelation!

Stay tuned!

The Book of Revelation: What Mysteries Does It Contain?

Warm greetings to all our friends around the world!

One of the most important books in the world is the book of Revelation in your Bible. This mysterious book reveals what will happen in the next decade and beyond. You’ve probably heard about the famous four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Who are these horsemen, and what do they represent? The writer, the Apostle John, also describes a beast rising out of the sea with seven heads and ten horns. Later, he describes a harlot riding another beast. What do these and other symbols mean? Can we unlock the mysteries of Revelation? Can we know the future? My friends, the mystery of Revelation has been unveiled. You need to know its secrets!

On today’s program we’ll reveal Seven Mysteries of Revelation. You need to know the prophetic meaning and messages of this mysterious book. You need to know the sequence of prophetic events leading up to the Second Coming, the return of Jesus the Messiah to rule the world.

The Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, inspired John to write what he saw in vision so that we could understand the future. As mysterious as this book appears, you can understand its message. This is what Christ Himself stated. Revelation 1:1,

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to SHOW His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. [Now listen to this] Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near” (Revelation 1:1–3).

Notice, my friends, that the purpose of Revelation is for you to understand the future, not to be mystified. You need to understand the secrets of Revelation. Today, we’ll reveal seven mysteries that unlock this important book. Our first mystery of Revelation is: Revelation’s Major Theme Is the Day of the Lord.

Turn in your Bible to Revelation 1:10. The Apostle John wrote:

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet….”

John is speaking of the major prophetic period of time described in the rest of the book as the Prophetic DAY OF THE LORD. John is NOT referring to Sunday as the Lord’s Day. If John were doing that, he would have referred to Sunday “as the first day” of the week as he did in the Gospel of John. Jesus Himself said he was Lord of the Sabbath! And He was not speaking of Sunday. The expression “Lord’s Day” here in Revelation is plainly referring to the theme of the whole book, the prophetic Day of the Lord, culminating in the return of Christ as King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

The Day of the Lord is introduced by the sixth seal. The sixth seal is the heavenly signs, or the cosmic disturbances that will shock people all over the earth! Let’s read that in Revelation 6:12. The Apostle John writes:

“I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. And the kings of the earth, the great men, the rich men, the commanders, the mighty men, every slave and every free man, hid themselves in the caves 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 who sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?” (Revelation 6:12-17).

Jesus Christ, the Lamb, will judge rebellious nations. The heavenly signs introduce the Seventh Seal of Revelation. The Seventh Seal represents the Day of the Lord, the one-year judgment on the nations. It is “the great day of His wrath” (Revelation 6:17). Notice this powerful statement by the prophet Isaiah:

“For it is the DAY of the Lord’s VENGEANCE, the YEAR of recompense for the cause of Zion” (Isaiah 34:8).

God’s punishment, the day of the Lord’s vengeance is equated to one year. Isaiah 63:4 also indicates this year-long day of God’s vengeance on rebellious nations.

Our first mystery for understanding the book of Revelation is: Revelation’s major theme is the Day of the Lord. Our second mystery of Revelation is: The Seven Seals Reveal the Sequence of End-Time Events. The Apostle John saw in vision a scroll with seven seals mentioned in Revelation 5:1. The Revelator, Jesus Christ, unseals them one by one. Turn in your Bible to Revelation the 6th chapter. Here we see the famous four horsemen of the Apocalypse represented by the first four seals. What do these horses and their riders symbolize? Jesus gave an outline of prophetic events in the Olivet prophecy found in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21. These prophetic events explain the four horsemen in the book of Revelation. The famous four horsemen of the Apocalypse symbolize, in order, false Christs and false religion, war and its devastating effects, famines that normally follow on the heels of war, and pestilences and disease that follow after famine.

My friends, there are shocking times ahead for the whole world. We need to be prepared for them. These four horsemen will cause devastation all over the earth. As we read in Revelation 6:8,

“[P]ower was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.”

My friends, can you imagine the death of two billion or more people in the future? Perhaps even in your lifetime?

Now, what happens when the fifth seal is opened? Turn to Revelation 6:9.

“When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held.”

Here is described the martyrdom of the saints, true Christians. In the first century, the Emperor Nero severely persecuted Christians and put them to death. A major end-time persecution of saints is also predicted by this fifth seal. Jesus predicted this tribulation in Matthew 24:9. Then Jesus opens the sixth seal, revealing the heavenly signs that will terrify people all over the earth. This chart in our free booklet gives you an overview of the Seven Seals and their prophetic significance. The Seventh Seal consists of the Seven Trumpet Events, and the Seventh Trumpet consists of the Seven Bowls or the Seven Last Plagues. Our second mystery of Revelation is: The Seven Seals Reveal the Prophetic Sequence of Events.

A Terrible Prophetic Timeline

Our third mystery of Revelation is: Three Milestone Events Reveal the End-Time Prophetic Framework. What are those milestone events?

They are:

1. The Great Tribulation;

2. The Heavenly Signs;


3. The Day of the Lord.

These three events cover a period of about 3 and one-half years. There are over thirty prophecies in your Bible referring to the Day of the Lord. As we’ve seen earlier in the program, Isaiah 34:8 and Isaiah 63:4 show that the Day of the Lord in end-time prophecy, the time preceding the Second Coming, is a period of one year! You might want to write down those references: Isaiah 34:8 and Isaiah 63:4! Our third mystery of Revelation is: Three Milestone Events Reveal the End-Time Prophetic Framework.

Jesus warned us that mankind’s mad obsession with war and weapons of mass destruction would lead to total cosmocide. He stated in Matthew 24:21,

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.”

The Great Tribulation is a time unique in all history. The prophet Daniel referred to it in Daniel 12:1. The prophet Jeremiah referred to it in Jeremiah 30:7 as “the time of Jacob’s trouble.” Yes, the time of judgment on the modern descendants of Jacob, the American and British descended peoples, as we’ve explained on previous programs. What happens after the Great Tribulation? Notice Matthew 24:29,

“Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”

So, Christ gives us the sequence of major events: First the Great Tribulation. Then the cosmic disturbances, or heavenly signs that we also read about earlier in Revelation 6:12. What follows the heavenly signs? The prophet Joel gives us the answer. Joel 2:30,

“And I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: Blood and fire and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.”

The heavenly signs precede the Day of the Lord. So, again, we see our third mystery of Revelation, revealing three milestone events: 1. The Great Tribulation; 2. The Heavenly Signs; and 3; The Day of the Lord.”

You’ve probably heard of the Beast of Revelation. The Book of Revelation, or the Apocalypse, features a symbolic Beast. Our fourth mystery of Revelation is: The Beast and the False Prophet Will Rule for a Short Time.

What does this beast of Revelation symbolize? The beast of Revelation the 13th chapter has seven heads and ten horns. This beast rises out of the ocean. The scarlet beast of Revelation the 17th chapter has seven heads and ten horns, and is ridden by a woman described as a harlot.

WHEN will this beast appear on the world scene? We only need to read the next verse, Revelation 17:14,

“These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

The Lamb is Jesus, the Messiah. He will come to this earth to save it from total cosmocide. The time setting is for the future. The seventh revival of this Beast power is just ahead of us. Who is this Beast? My friends, Bible prophecy reveals that a great superpower will arise in Europe. And it will be a revival of the Roman Empire. This great power will be political, military, and economic. You can read about this economic power in Revelation, chapter 18. The current European Union aspires to hold all three dimensions of that power. This power is symbolized by the Beast, who will rule with the support of the False Prophet. Our fourth mystery of Revelation is: The Beast and the False Prophet will Rule for a Short Time.

A Message of Hope for the World After Great Sorrow

But the good news is in our fifth and sixth mysteries of Revelation. Our fifth mystery is: Christ Will Win the Final Battle. Revelation 11:15 tells us of a wonderful announcement:

“Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, ‘The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!’”

But notice, the worldly nations under the sway of the Beast power will not submit to God’s coming kingdom. How will they respond to this new world government? Revelation 11:18,

“The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear Your name, small and great, and should destroy those who destroy the earth.”

Satan and his demons will influence worldly armies to gather at Megiddo, about 55 miles north of Jerusalem. You can read about that in Revelation 16:14-16. Who will win that battle, commonly referred to as Armageddon? Remember, as we read earlier in Revelation 17, Christ will conquer the Beast power. Revelation 17:14,

“These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those who are with Him are called, chosen, and faithful.”

Our fifth mystery of Revelation is: Christ Will Win the Final Battle. And what will happen after He wins that victory? That’s our sixth mystery of Revelation: The Kingdom of God Will Rule on the Earth.

My friends, Jesus Christ came preaching the gospel of the Kingdom of God. The apostles continued preaching that gospel. Even the Apostle Paul continued to preach that gospel to the end of his life. Read the last two verses in the book of Acts in your Bible. Acts 28:30-31,

“Then Paul dwelt two whole years in his own rented house, and received all who came to him, preaching the kingdom of God and teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ with all confidence, no one forbidding him.”

Your Bible plainly reveals that Christ will return as King of kings and Lord of lords, as we’ve seen. He is called the Prince of Peace in Isaiah 9:6. Notice that He will ensure world peace for all nations, Isaiah 9:7,

“Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”

Genuine and faithful Christians will serve in His world-ruling government. Revelation 20:4,

“And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”

That is the Millennium. After that, the New Jerusalem will descend from Heaven, and God’s Kingdom will continue for all eternity. Our sixth mystery of Revelation is: The Kingdom of God will Rule on the Earth.

Our seventh mystery of Revelation involves you personally, and it’s the key that will determine your future when these prophesied events take place.

An Important Call to All True Believers!

Our seventh mystery of Revelation is: The Seven Churches Have Meaning for Us Today!

The people in those seven churches had different characteristics, some good and some not so good. John describes them in Revelation, Chapters two and three. The seven churches were on one mail route in what is today western Turkey. They were Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamos, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea. The spiritual conditions of these seven churches have been reflected in the true Church of God through various eras during the past 1,900 years.

The Revelator, Jesus Christ, tells us to learn lessons from each church. Listen carefully to the descriptions and warnings. The Revelator, Christ, describes the church at Ephesus this way: Revelation 2:4,

“Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love.”

Ephesus is called “The Loveless Church.” Next, to Smyrna, “The Persecuted Church,” Jesus states [2:10],

“Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

The third is Pergamos, “The Compromising Church.” It tolerated sexual immorality. Jesus tells them (v. 16),

“Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.”

Artifacts of a pagan temple from Pergamos can be seen today in Berlin’s Pergamon Museum. The fourth church, Thyatira, is referred to as “The Corrupt Church.” The fifth church, Sardis, is called “The Dead Church.” The sixth church, Philadelphia, is “The Faithful Church” and Jesus tells them:

“Because you have kept My command to persevere, I also will keep you from the hour of trial which shall come upon the whole world, to test those who dwell on the earth” (3:10).

The final church, Laodicea, is called “The Lukewarm Church.” Jesus warns them in verse 16:

“… because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth.”

Do you want Jesus to vomit you out of His mouth? Or, do you want to be a faithful Christian? Study those chapters and the characteristics of those churches. Apply them in your life! Jesus gave a warning to those churches. And, my friends, WE need to listen to them as well. Revelation 3:19,

“As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”

My friends, I encourage you to read carefully these two chapters, Revelation 2 and 3. Jesus reveals the changes we need to make in our lives. He exhorts us to apply all these messages to our own life. Seven times He tells us: “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches,” all SEVEN of the churches!

These seven churches also reveal the spiritual characteristics and attitudes of the Christian church from the time of Christ, to the end of this age.

My friends, we are nearing the end of the age and the coming of the Kingdom of God. You need to take action and seek the truth of your Bible.
