WHO IS THIS KIND-LOOKING MAN WHO IS CALLING US TO "COME"? What kind of an invitation is this & what does it have to do with all of these oddly-dressed people who seem to be flying through space, towards some kind of a mysterious golden pyramid in the distance?
THIS LOVING MAN'S NAME IS JESUS, & HE'S INVITING YOU TO A PARTY!--The grandest, most thrilling & exciting party that has ever been held!--A feast that will be attended by billions of people from all over the World!--And which will be held in a place that is so big & so beautiful & so out-of-this-World that it is beyond your imagination!
FOR THIS JESUS IS A KING!--Not just the king of a mere Earthly country or kingdom, but He is the King of all kings, the King of the Universe, the very Son of God!--The One God sent to Earth to show us what He Himself is like! His religion of Love grew so popular that the jealous leaders of the traditional religious system of His day forced the government to crucify Him like a common criminal!
HOWEVER, THREE DAYS AFTER HIS DEATH, HE AROSE FROM THE GRAVE, CONQUERING DEATH FOREVER! After His resurrection, He personally appeared to hundreds of His followers! He told them that He was going to leave them to return to His Father, but that He would always be with them in Spirit, living in their hearts forever! And He gave them a wonderful promise, that one day, "I will come again!"--Not as a meek & mild babe in a manger, but as the mighty King!--Coming "in the clouds, with power & great glory!" (Jn.14:3; Lk.21:27)
THE BIBLE GIVES US MANY DETAILED PREDICTIONS & PROPHECIES telling us what the World will be like just before Jesus returns. Countless of these "Signs of the Times" have already come to pass, showing us that the time for Jesus' return is very near!
ONE GREAT FINAL SIGN OF THE VERY END that Jesus said would come to pass just before His return is the rise of a totally Godless, anti-Christ, One-World government led by a Devil-possessed dictator, the Antichrist! He will reign for seven years, & at first will bring partial peace to the World. (Dan.9:27)
BUT AFTER 3-1/2 YEARS HE WILL SUDDENLY DEMAND THAT THE WORLD WORSHIP HIM AS GOD, & will persecute & war against all who refuse! He will set up a One-World economic system in which no one can buy or sell without a special credit number branded onto their foreheads or hands! This time is known as the "Great Tribulation"! (Rev.13)
JESUS SAID, "IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN THE SKY! Then shall all of the wicked of the World mourn, for they shall see the Son of Man coming in the clouds of Heaven with power & great glory! And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, & they shall gather together all of His children!"(Mt.24:29-31)
JESUS HIMSELF IS GOING TO RESCUE HIS CHILDREN FROM THE CRUEL GODLESS FORCES OF THE EVIL ANTICHRIST! He's going to say, "Stop the World!--I want them to get off!" And all of God's children will be caught up together with Jesus in the clouds! The forces of the Devil & the Antichrist will be shocked, almost scared to death, when they see us all rise before their eyes!--Out of their reach forever! (1Th.4:15-17)
FOR WHEN JESUS RETURNS, A TREMENDOUS, SUPERNATURAL MIRACLE WILL TAKE PLACE: THE RESURRECTION! The bodies of all of the billions of saved people who have died will be instantly recreated & come bursting out of their graves! And all of the saved who are still alive & living for the Lord in spite of the Antichrist will be miraculously raised with them to meet Jesus in the air! Our present bodies will be instantly changed into eternal super-bodies, resurrection bodies, just like Jesus had when He arose! (1Cor.15:51-55; Phil.3:21; 1Jn.3:2)
IN HIS NEW BODY, JESUS WAS ABLE TO APPEAR OR DISAPPEAR, walk right through solid walls or locked doors, & fly from one place to another with the speed of thought! (Lk.24:30,31,51; Jn.20:26)--And we will be able to do the same! Billions of us will take off for Heavenly places, just like all the flying people in this picture!--Leaving this old World & the followers of the Antichrist far behind, who will suffer the Judgements of God, Hell on Earth, until we return with the Lord to set up Heaven on Earth at last!
WHEN THE RESURRECTION HAPPENS, WE WILL ALL SAIL UP & AWAY WITH THE LORD TO THE "MARRIAGE FEAST OF THE LAMB!" (Rev.19:6-9)--The greatest party ever held! It will be a wonderful reunion with the Lord & all of our loved ones, our victory celebration over all the forces of evil! Hallelujah!
THIS PARTY WILL TAKE PLACE IN GOD'S OWN HEAVENLY CITY!--The huge pyramid-shaped clear-as-crystal beautiful golden City of God, 1500 miles long, wide & high, prepared by Jesus Himself for all of His billions of children who have ever lived!--That's where all these flying folks on this picture are headed!--To our eternal Heavenly Home which will one day come down from God & stand upon this Earth! (Rev.21)
WILL YOU BE READY WHEN JESUS COMES? Are you one of His Own who will rise up to meet Him in the sky? He's lovingly calling you to "Come!--Enter My Heavenly Kingdom of love, joy & peace!" But you don't have to wait till Jesus comes in the clouds!--You can have Heaven in your heart right now! The way to enter the Kingdom of Heaven is to let the King of Heaven, Jesus, enter you!--Then you'll be ready for His return!--COME!
SIMPLY PRAY: "LORD JESUS, I BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE THE SON OF GOD & THAT YOU DIED FOR ME. Please forgive me for all my sins! I ask You, Jesus, to please come into my heart & give me Your free Gift of Eternal Life. Help me to love You & to love others by telling them about You & Your Love. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen."
