FROM NOW TO ETERNITY!
Edited from the "Book of the Future" Chapter "in a nutshell" by David Brandt Berg.
Thousands of years ago, ancient prophets and seers in Bible times, received trance-like visions enabling them to see far into the future, sometimes thousands of years ahead. They heard voices of angels speaking the words of God and wrote them down for all generations to come: even detailed acccurate descriptions of the Last Days of Man's rule on earth, the times in which we are now living!
1. The Bible and the Words of God's prophets are actually the only real newspapers, or newsbooks, in the world!--All other newspapers tell you what already happened yesterday, so they're not really news papers, they're history papers! But the Bible tells us what is going to happen tomorrow! It is full of thousands of detailed prophecies, actually describing specific people, places, times, situations and events thousands of years before they came into being! (Isa.34:16; 42:9; 2Pe.1:19-21.)
2. Many of these prophecies are about the final period of world history, just before Jesus returns to stop all of today's wickedness and to set up His Own Kingdom of Love and Peace on Earth. These last final days of man's kingdoms on Earth are known in the Bible as the "Time of the End", the "Latter Days", the "Last Days", etc.--the time in which you and I are now living! (Dan.2:28; 8:23; 12:4.)
3. When Jesus' disciples wanted to know the future and asked him, "What shall be the sign of thy coming and of the end of the world?", He didn't reply with only one sign, but with dozens! In fact, the Bible gives us hundreds of "signs of the times", signs and signals that we are to look out for so that we can know exactly how close to the very End we are! (Mt.24:All)
