Drastic WEATHER Changes
While this coming Nazi-Fascist Colossus is developing underground, an alarming revolution is beginning to occur in the weather. Hurricanes, floods, sectional droughts are fast increasing.
And now, the very next prophesied event — to strike in the full fury of its climax before our democratic nations are invaded by the resurrected Roman Empire — is a tremendous universal FAMINE over America, Britain, and northwestern Europe caused by unprecedented drought and floods. And immediately in its wake will come the most frightful epidemic of diseases ever to attack our peoples!
Jesus Christ foretold it in His great Olivet prophesy: “For,” He said, “nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom” — that’s WORLD WAR! — and we are now in the recess between the 2nd and 3rd rounds of it — “Then there shall be famines,” — that’s the next major world event now prophesied, “and pestilences” — disease epidemics, “and earthquakes in different places.” (Matt. 24:7). Already there is a violent increase in frequency of earthquakes, all over the world.
“All these,” Jesus continued, verse 8, “are the beginning of sorrows”-(marginal reading, “travail,” or the Great Tribulation)…
…This will be the very beginning, as Jesus said, of the Great Tribulation!
Jeremiah’s prophecy is more specific. It is the beginning of the NATIONAL trouble to come on America, the British nations, and the democracies of northwestern Europe! And, as both Jeremiah and Jesus Christ were inspired to record — and also the prophet Daniel — it will be the MOST CATASTROPHIC time of national trouble that has ever struck any nation, or ever will!
Still more specific is the prophecy of Ezekiel.
Read it, in Ezekiel 5:12: “A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with the famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee.”
At the outset of this article I stated that the KEYS that had kept prophetic doors locked and closed from human understanding have now been found — or, more properly, been given to us by GOD. The Church denominations do not possess these keys, for they will not receive correction from the Word of God, nor acknowledge error, nor receive new light. What they did not possess and proclaim 50 or 100 years ago, they do not acknowledge today. But if you do not yet understand that the “thee” of whom God thru Ezekiel is here speaking — is our democratic nations, as set forth and plainly PROVED in our free booklet (sent on request) “United States and British Commonwealth in Prophecy,” then just remember that we are GUILTY of the very things that the people it does refer to are guilty of — and GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS; so these things ARE GOING TO HAPPEN TO US. UNLESS WE HEED AND REPENT!
The details of the Great Drought soon coming upon us are described in the first chapter of Joel. It’s a frightful, desolate picture of starvation and disease!
Then, WORLD WAR III
But all these things, as Jesus explained, are to be only the BEGINNING of our time of national trouble.
Once we are weakened by starvation, disease, and the resulting calamitous economic depression, the Ten-Nation European Colossus will suddenly STRIKE with hydrogen bombs that shall DESTROY OUR CITIES and our centers of industrial and military production!
The very next words of Jesus’ prophecy (Matt. 24:9, 21-22) are: “Then” — not five years or a generation later, but “THEN” shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations; … and then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days [of mass death and destruction] should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved alive, but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” Yes, by the supernatural intervention of GOD, before all human life is blasted from off the earth!
Jesus was there speaking of our peoples nationally, as well as of real Spirit-begotten Christians individually.
But Ezekiel’s prophecy adds this specific and terrifying fact: “And a third part” — HALF our remaining population “shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.”
The German-dominated European combine will blast our cities and industrial centers with hydrogen bombs. This is foretold in many prophecies, but here is one that shows the effect that only the hydrogen bomb can produce — the very next chapter of Ezekiel:
“In all your dwelling places, the cities shall be laid waste.” (Ezek. 6:6). A few German cities were virtually laid waste in World War II. But not until the production of the hydrogen bomb has it ever been possible for an enemy to totally destroy all our cities!
Our Great National Calamity
Yes, WAKE UP! America and Britain! You have grown calloused and indifferent to world revolution, world wars and cold wars and the threat of hydrogen-bomb war.
You Americans and British! You smug, proud, stiff-necked complacent people! You enjoy a prosperity God never lavished on any other people — you heedlessly permit yourselves to became soft and decadent, setting your foolish hearts on a lush, push-button, prosperity of leisure. You ignore that entire prophetic THIRD of GOD’S WORD, warning you of impending disaster and offering you divine protection from it!
Will any one of you who now read this warning awaken to the stern reality?
