ARE we now in the biblically prophesied “time of the end”? President Reagan, of the United States, spoke of world conditions seemingly indicating we may be nearing “Armageddon.” The atomic scientists some time ago set the doomsday clock one more minute forward from four to only three minutes till “midnight.” An editorial in the U.S. News & World Report referred to this seemingly imminent time, saying it would seem that the world’s only hope now lies in the sudden appearance of “a strong hand from some place.”

Yet in the same breath they admit the utter impossibility of this, claiming that such supreme world power in human hands would enslave us all!

Were they merely a vivid nightmare of the elderly Apostle John’s imagination? Or are they a living prophecy soon to
unfold in our generation? You’ll be shocked to see how Jesus, Christ Himself revealed the true meaning – for our day, right now – of the four mysterious riders of Revelation.

Why is the world’s best selling book held in awe by some, in passive discredit by others, and understood by virtually none? WHY the Book of mystery nobody seems to know? Why do the many churches of traditional Christianity disagree about what the Bible says? Have you ever PROVED whether, as the book itself purports, it is the authoritative Word of the Creator God? Rather, have you not simply assumed, from what you have heard, read or been taught, that it is either authentic, or else the religious writing of a small ancient Jewish race, groping in the darkness of human ignorance and of superstition, trying to develop a concept of God?
The Bible pictures the whole world under the sway of an invisible devil. Where did he come from? Did God create a devil to tempt us and to lead us astray? Here are the answers from God’s Word! Is THERE a devil? Many people talk about the devil and Satan. Others scoff and say it’s just superstition and imagination. But is there a devil? According to most Christians the Bible is supposed to teach that the devil is “the god of this world.” Did God create a devil? What does the Bible actually teach?

THIS may be a little shocking — but I want to ask you a candid question: Did you ever look into your Bible to see whether it really does say you will ever go to heaven, if you are saved?
