Prepare NOW For This Event!

Prepare NOW for this event!

This astounding event is coming swiftly and surely . . . perhaps much sooner than you expect. It is an event which many thousands are eagerly anticipating, but it is also an event that is a matter of great dread to other thousands.

It is going to result in the most remarkable separations in the annals of human history. In the most sudden and most mysterious manner, workers in the same field and sleepers in the same bed will be forever separated from each other.

This event will result in the physical disappearance of a host of people of all nations, ages; colors and stations of life. It will be the cause of many vacant chairs in homes, schools, hospitals, offices, stores and other places of legitimate activity.

This event will close the door of the most extraordinary opportunity which man has ever had since the day of his creation. Shortly after this event, "peace shall be taken from the earth" and there shall be "wars, famines, pestilences, earthquakes" and supernatural signs in the heavens and on the earth.

The world's most despotic dictator will then be revealed - and being a political, military, industrial economic and ecclesiastical genius, this long- sought super-man will deify himself and demand universal homage on pain of torture and death.

This great event is the return of the Lord Jesus Christ! Yes, there will be a return of the very One who was born in Bethlehem, lived in Nazareth, spoke living words and wrought mighty miracles throughout Palestine. He promises to return. He said to His own: "I will come again" (John 14:3). To those who witnessed His ascension, this assurance was given: "This same Jesus, which was taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven" (Acts 1:11).

Friend, are you ready for the return of the Lord Jesus Christ? If you are not ready for this rapidly approaching event will you prepare for it now? "The most extraordinary opportunity" referred to above is that of receiving Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. He "died for our sins according to the Scriptures" (I Corinthians 15:3), and upon receiving Him, one receives the forgiveness of sins, deliverance from judgment, eternal life, the Holy Spirit and a place in the church which is His body. Oh, seize the opportunity now for becoming one of Christ's. "As many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name" (John 1:12).

When the Lord Jesus comes again, He will take each true believer from this world to be in His presence where there is "fullness of joy and pleasures forever more." But what will become of the unsaved? They will be left for the Great Tribulation and all its stirring events! They will be left for that time of trouble concerning which the Lord Jesus said: "For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be" Matthew 24:21).

Think of the painful experience of having to do with the man of sin, that wicked one, "who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God" (II Thessalonians 2:4). Think of being commanded to receive his mark or the number of his name (666) - apart from which you will be unable to buy or sell the necessities of life. (See Revelation 13:15.)

Friend, the Lord Jesus is coming and coming soon. Will you not prepare for His coming by definitely accepting Him and thus be ready to meet Him? Why should you expose yourself to His wrath in the world which is to come? On the cross the Lord Jesus suffered "the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God" (I Peter 3:18). Believe on Him and be saved and joyfully serve Him. Then you will have a personal, vital interest in the coming again of our Lord Jesus Christ.
