People of the Western world would be stunned dumbfounded if they knew! The governments of the United States, Britain, Canada, Australasia, South Africa would set in motion gigantic crash programs if they knew! They could know! But they don't! Why?
COULD YOU ANSWER? Where are the United States and Britain spoken of in Bible prophecy? COULD YOU BELIEVE these nations are mentioned more times than any other in Bible prophecy? CONSIDER THIS: Such small nations as Ethiopia, Libya, Turkey, Egypt are referred to in biblical prophecy. Russia is in the prophecies. How could such world powers as the United States and Britain be ignored or are they? AND CONSIDER THIS! About one third of all the Bible is devoted to prophecies about 90 percent of them foretelling world events of our time now last half of the 20th century. Yet even theologians have not understood these prophecies which tell us what now lies immediately ahead in world events that will involve YOU and all the rest of us. The KEY that unlocks these earth-shaking prophecies involving the United States and Britain had been lost! The definite identity of the United States and Britain in the prophecies is that KEY. That KEY has been found. It is revealed in this book possibly the most astounding truth in the Holy Scriptures! CONSIDER FURTHER: Never in history have two nations risen so suddenly and quickly from virtual obscurity to unprecedented national wealth, greatness and world power as these two peoples! Was it mere chance? Or were they providentially, as prophesied thousands of years ago, given this world dominance for a reason? AMAZINGLY CONSIDER THIS: Beginning the year 1800 Britain and the United States were little and insignificant as world powers. But then the fantastic spurt to world dominance began. By 1804 London was the financial hub of the world. From 1800 the United States miraculously sprang from original 13colony impotence to become the greatest nation on earth. The Louisiana Purchase in 1803 suddenly made the United States a nation of world prominence. Soon the British Empire encompassed the world. They boasted that the sun never set on their Empire. CONSIDER HOW INCREDIBLY GREAT: Before World War II, the United States and Britain had acquired more than two thirds of all the cultivated resources and wealth of the world! All other nations possessed, combined, less than a third. CONSIDER OUR PLIGHT TODAY! But now Britain's sun has set. Her Empire is gone! She is no longer "GREAT Britain." And America still perhaps just barely ahead of the Soviet Union in military power, has, as prophesied, lost the pride of that power we are afraid to use it! Little Iran holds the great America hostage for months. The United States, always generous in aiding other nations, is hated above all peoples! We have lost will, purpose, prestige. WHY? With resounding force and dynamic style Herbert W. Armstrong gives clear understanding and warns of what biblical prophecy reveals is soon to happen to America and Britain. Millennia ago, national greatness, wealth and power were promised by the Almighty God to the patriarch Abraham. Did God ever keep those promises to his descendants? They were never fulfilled in the Jewish people! FINALLY: The very fate of the Bible the question of the existence and ·power of God hangs on the true answer. It is amazingly incredible, unbelievingly eye-opening! It is vital to our national existence? Maybe it's our fate yours and mine that hangs in the balance. You'll find this book exciting and important reading.
A STAGGERING TURN IN WORLD events is due to erupt in the next few years. It will involve violently the United States, Britain, Western Europe, the Middle East. It's already rather late for the free world to come awake to the real meaning behind current world events! Why do not the world's leaders see what is coming? Why are the world's best minds unseeing the heads of state, scientists, educators, editors, news analysts, bankers, industrialists, leaders in business and commerce? They are totally unaware! Why? Because they have been falsely educated and deceived into closing their minds to the great causes behind world events and trends. This world has been falsely educated to ignore causes and deal with effects! Yet all the world's problems and ills are simply a matter of cause and effect. There is a cause that has produced strife and war; poverty, wretchedness, inequality; crime, disease, mental ills. But the leaders do not know!
World Explosion to Erupt
The world's leaders are the educated of the world. But they were not educated in BASIC TRUTHS the foundations of right knowledge. The most necessary knowledge is not being taught! They do not know WHAT man is or WHY! They know nothing of the purpose or meaning of life! They were not taught to distinguish the true values from the false. They did not learn the real causes the way to peace, to happiness, to universal abundance; nor the causes of war, unhappiness, inequality, world chaos. They know nothing of the purpose being worked out here below. Consequently, they guide humanity on a course in conflict with that purpose, wreaking havoc upon a distressed, suffering, unhappy mankind. Lacking knowledge of the way to peace, the world does not have peace. Leaders talk of peace; they profess to work for peace; they cry out for peace while they give approval and blind acceptance to the way that produces war! This world has simply been going the wrong way! This world is giving assent to, and conferring civilization's acceptance on, THE WAYS that are the CAUSES of all the world's ills. And now we are fast approaching the final grand smash explosion that is going to stagger the mind of man beyond the bounds of sanity. Forces are at work today on plans, programs, conspiracies, movements that soon will erupt into a world explosion of violence and chaos such as never happened before, and never will again. Men today are tampering with forces of nature they lack the prudence, knowledge, ability and wisdom to control. In this folly of educated ignorance, it has become fashionable today and intellectually titillating to ignore the great basic cause of all things; the fact of the purpose being worked out here below, and the master plan for its working out; the invisible but Supreme Power now soon to intervene and drastically alter the course of history before mankind blasts itself out of existence. Unreal though it may seem to those steeped in modern educational deceptions, some 2,500 years ago the Supreme Power of the universe inspired a man named Isaiah to quote Him, saying: "I am God, and there is none like me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand" (Isa. 46:9-10). The great world powers are formulating their policies laying their plans. But the next few years will see astounding events explode in a manner very different than the nations plan! Why?
Never a Miss
Because there is the great God who says: "The Eternal wrecks the purposes of pagans, he brings to nothing what the nations plan; but the Eternal's purpose stands for ever, and what he plans will last from age to age .... The Eternal looks from heaven, beholding all mankind; from where he sits, he scans all who inhabit the world; he who alone made their minds, he notes all they do" (Ps. 33:10-15, Moffatt translation). This same Eternal God said: "To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things ...." And again: "Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance .... All nations before him are as nothing ..." (Isa. 40:25-26, 15, 17). Through His inspired prophets, the great God caused to be written, some 2,500 years ago, and preserved in writing to our time prophecies filling approximately a third of the whole Bible. In them, He named every city of consequence of that time on earth and also every nation! And He foretold precisely what would, through the years, happen to every city and every nation! In every instance the prophecies came to pass! What was prophesied HAPPENED to Babylon, to Tyre, Sidon, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Ekron; to Egypt, Assyria, Chaldea, Persia, Greece and Rome. There has not been a miss! Those prophecies were accurate. And now, in other prophecies, the same supreme God has foretold precisely what is going to happen to the United States, the British nations, Western Europe, the Middle East, Russia!
Yet the best minds in the world are in total ignorance of the unprecedented cataclysm that is about to strike. And why have these prophecies not been understood or believed? Because the vital KEY that unlocks prophecy to our understanding had been lost. That key is the identity of the United States and the British peoples in biblical prophecy. That key has been found! We present it to those whose unprejudiced eyes are willing to see. The events prophesied to strike the American and British peoples in the next few years are SURE! God says: "Surely the Lord Eternal will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7). These colossal world events, shrinking the first two World Wars into insignificance, WILL COME, but not until the warning has been made available for those whose eyes are willing to see.
