Getting to know God together.


The Bible is such a thrilling book! 
The more you read it the more exciting it becomes. 
Yes, it can be hard study all right - but it sure is worth studying. 
Now lambs of God, we will do a bit of hard study today. 
It will be about the Bible “prophecy” of a One-World coming. Remember what “prophecy” is? 
It is like a news-paper which tells us about the news BEFORE it happens.

Only God can really give true “prophecy.”
This prophecy is found in His written Word - the Bible.

The Bible tells us that we will know when the Second Coming of Jesus Christ is near.
We see the One -World signs.

There will be a One-World:

Christians are safe with the Lord as their Protector - so we have nothing to fear.
A lot of what is going to happen will be when God has taken away the Church from the earth.
( “The Church” is every one who trusts in Jesus as Saviour).
This is what the Bible tells us about the One-World Govern-ment:
“And it was given unto him ( the evil world ruler ) to make war with the saints, and to conquer them ( he will win over the people who will be saved after the Church goes home to Heaven ): and power was given him over all kin-dreds, and tongues, and nations ( the whole world will be ruled by the One-World leader).”  (Revelation 13:7; 16-18).

There will be a One-World Religion.
All people will band together and worship false gods and idols together. Even Christian Church people, who are not saved by Jesus, will join in with the One-World religion. Here is one of the proph-ecies:
“Now the Spirit speaketh (speaks ) express-ly (gives great importance to what is said ), that in the latter times some will depart ( go away from ) the faith, giving heed (listening to ) seducing spirits ( wicked spirits who lie and trick ) and doctrines (teachings ) of devils (demons).”  (1 Timothy 4:1).

The Bible shows us that all the unsaved world is run by greed for money! So the One-World rule will be after power to get all the money of the world into their control. How awful, how selfish. So, Christians understand today that One-World Banks can be pretty powerful - and evil too! Here is a Bible prophecy:
“For the love of money is the root of all evil.”  (1 Timothy 6:10a ).

The proph-ecies about a One-World leader are pretty scary!
But you do not have to be afraid, for God is on your side. And He will take away His Church before the Beast comes to power. But, lambs of God can know about these things, and understand.

Here, then is a prophecy about the One-World leader’s doings:

“And he causeth (causes ) all, both great and small, rich and poor, free and bond (slaves ), to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their fore-heads. And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath (has) under-standing count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man, and his number is six hundred, three score and six ( 666).”  (Revelation 13:16-18).

WOW!!! That was heavy study for the lambs of God. I
hope you understood.
Praise the Lord, for He is the true Ruler of the earth.
And one day Jesus will be King over all forever. And He will bring peace and happiness to this world.
