Pastor John W. Thompson
Well today is my birthday! So I wanted to keep it light, for the in-depth Bible student
studying with us here at
Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future...
For years now, I've prophesied my Fathers Word and His end-time events which have
been occurring with increasing speed! The world you see around you is disseminating
around you with greater speed than it has ever done in human history. Your own world,
and the society around you will be quite different within the next 1-3 years.
Our Creator, has predicted that this earth age, this Society as we know it will come
to an end with the coming of the false Christ, and the second coming of our Christ
Jesus as King of Kings. Your Bible describes a series of trumpet plagues that will
occur before this present earth age ends with the famous sounding of the last trump.
Jesus Christ described that the time of His second coming will be a time of sin and
rebellion against God, as in the days if Noah were (Matthew 24:37). I have already
seen this occur in my own family. And the Bible clearly describes those days of
Noah as a time when the lusts of God-rejecting men will cause them to pervert the
marriage bond, to become involved in continual violence and bloodshed and to corrupt
their entire way on the earth (Genesis 6:5-13).
Millions of American, British, Canadian and Australian Christians are turning away
from God, as they corrupt themselves through their fornication, homosexual and their
living together without any kind of commitments of marriage. Many people and even
political and religious leaders condone same-sex marriage, we can truly say that the
handwriting is on the wall. As Jesus said, when you see all these things, know that
it is near, at the doors (Matthew 24:33).
As more tens of Millions of professing Christians turn away from God and blaspheme His
name, Almighty God will respond, He will chasten the American and British peoples
because of their sins. The Bible clearly indicates that He will humble the modern
descendants of ancient
If you really believe what Christ says, than you will know what will transpire just
before He returns. And you will know and believe that when these events are under way,
mankind will indeed be in the last generation of human civilization. And you will also
know that there is no way that our Christ's return could be far off.
Also, though this may shock some of you, everyone needs to understand that there is
no way that Christ's return could be tonight or even tomorrow night or even the next few
years! Because Gods Word tells us that the heaven and earth may pass away, but Jesus'
description of this entire series of events will not pass away. Certain prophesied
events must occur, in the exact sequence Jesus described, before He will return.
Certain things must take place before the end can come. In no way will He return in
2012 or 2013 like some are saying He will. We know He will return soon and that we
truly are in the last days.
There are dozens of indications that we are in the last days.
One clear indication that we are in the end times is found in Matthew 24:21-22. Jesus
had been asked, "what will be the sign of your coming, and of the end of this age, (or earth age)?
After describing a series of events, Jesus said, "for then there will be great
tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this age, no,
nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved, but
for the elects sake those days will be shortened. Here Jesus predicts the most awful
national punishment in history and the possibility of the total annihilation of the
human race. That is if God were not to supernaturally intervene and shorten the time
of the great tribulation down from seven years to five months.
We entered the time of the end in the year 1948, when
of the Jews returned to
meaning to me as well as to the jews. This fulfilled the Parable of the Fig Tree
prophecy in Matthew 24:32, Mark 13:28, and Luke 21:29 which were all indications of
Christ's second advent.
Also, in Daniel 12:4, God told Daniel, to shut up the words and seal the book until
the time of the end, many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall increase. I
want you to notice that the massive use of transportation would mark the end-time,
that's what running to and fro means, and the Bible also said there would be a vast
increase in knowledge. Every day millions of people go to and fro flying in our modern
airplanes and jets. In almost every corner of the world we see people now driving
automobiles to and fro and are traveling in a way that would have been impossible or
unthinkable before the 20th century began. Plus with the invention of the radio,
satellite television, and now especially the widespread use of computers we see that
this all has contributed to a huge explosion in human knowledge when compared to past
ages. So, we have seen the fulfillment of this Bible prophecy. So, we know that
Christ will undoubtedly return within the lifetimes of the young people growing up
Just before the great tribulation, a powerful group of Arab nations will combine
themselves together and threaten and provoke the coming European beast power (Daniel 11:
40-45). This is right at the "time of the end." The more heavily armed beast power
will come down on this "King of the South" like a whirlwind.
The forces of the beast power will also conquer the Jewish state of
over much of the
reserves to fuel their war machines. And another end-time event that must take place
before Christ's return is the great tribulation (Jeremiah 30). Soon after the
tribulation Christ will return.
Also, just before the tribulation, a final great dictator (the antichrist, also known
as the false christ) will win the support of ten nations or leaders in
ten territories together will make up the final, prophesied beast power (Revelation 17:8
-12). Like fools, the leaders of this military power will think their sophisticated
weapons will prevail even against Christ! They try to do battle even as the returning
Christ and the armies of heaven descend in power, "These will make war with the Lamb,
and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of Lords and the King of Kings, and
those who are with Him are called
degree of deception and spiritual blindness which will have come over the leaders of
the earth at that time. The god of this world has absolutely "blinded" those who do
not believe (2 Corinthians 4:4). Remember that, until Jesus Christ returns to this
earth, this is Satan's world!
Also remember that this coming beast power is not only a military and political power.
It is a tool that will be used by the great harlot described in Revelation 17. These
scriptures clearly tell us, the woman rides the beast.
So, like I told you in the beginning of this letter, Christ will not return to this
earth until we have experienced all these events. Professing Christian ministers who
tell people that Christ could come tonight, are so out of touch with the truths of the
Bible that it is almost unbelievable.
If you are willing to surrender your life to God and let Christ rule your life, you
also can become part of that "little flock" also known as "Gods Elect", the true Church
of God that will be taken to a place of safety on this earth during the soon coming
Great Tribulation (Revelation 12:14).
Speaking of these events, Jesus Christ tells us that when we start to see these things happening, know that the
