GOD recently gave me a message on how we can easily know the approximate time of HIS coming back to earth. The message revolved primarily around Matthew chapter 24. I was surprised that HE told me a few minutes ago to do it from the book of Mark chapter 13. So, I write.

“And as HE went out of the temple, one of HIS disciples saith unto HIM, MASTER, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! [The LORD wants me to write here to the people of today’s world. You people here on earth—do not marvel at the buildings and skyscrapers, the treasured monuments, the historic landmarks, and the mountains and hills.] And JESUS answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? [You people of today—do you see all these things?] there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down” (Mark 13:1-2).

“For in MY jealousy and in the fire of MY wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at MY presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground” (Ezekiel 38:19-20).1

“And as HE sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked HIM privately, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled? And JESUS answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you: For many shall come in MY name, saying, I am CHRIST; and shall deceive many. And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

“But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for MY sake, for a testimony against them. And the gospel must first be published among all nations. But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the HOLY SPIRIT” (Mark 13:3-11).

“Now the brother shall betray the brother to death, and the father the son; and children shall rise up against their parents, and shall cause them to be put to death. And ye shall be hated of all men for MY name’s sake: but he that shall endure [continue on] unto the end, the same shall be saved” (Mark 13:12-13). [But what if we don’t continue on, endure hardness as a good soldier, TO THE END? WON’T YOU, LORD, HAVE MERCY ON US? Won’t we be saved? SORRY! ONLY he that ENDURES TO THE END SHALL BE SAVED!2]

“But when you shall see [literally see] the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not… [This is when Satan’s evil church, which is a front for the devil’s government, is doing what it is today, being a front for all manner of evil and sin, including pornography, homosexuality, child molestation, abortion, murder, drugs, and blasphemy, with Satan exalting himself over GOD, HIS CHRIST, and the commandments, the WORD of GOD. He is having Christians arrested on false charges, lying, blaspheming the HOLY SPIRIT, kidnapping the children of Christians and adopting them out to immoral sexual perverts, such as homosexuals, forbidding marriage, and condoning same- sex marriages (all of which are abominations condemned by GOD). Satan is promoting lasciviousness, which is pornography, and all corruption, and making laws which condemn the LAW of GOD.3]” (Mark 13:14).

“And he shall speak great words against the MOST HIGH, and shall wear out the saints of the MOST HIGH, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time” (Daniel 7:25).

“(Let him that readeth understand,) then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains: And let him that is on the housetop not go down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any thing out of his house: [JESUS is letting us know not to be concerned about our worldly possessions.4] And let him that is in the field not turn back again for to take up his garment.

“But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! [This is because in these days, the demonic government is in the business of kidnapping the children of born-again Christians!] And pray ye that your flight be not in the winter. For in those days shall be affliction, such as was not from the beginning of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be. And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect’s sake, whom HE hath chosen, HE hath shortened the days” (Mark 13:14-20).

I was not a believer, and had no desire to be a believer. The idea of it was a nightmare to me. But in a Beverly Hills attorney’s office, GOD called me. GOD chose me to tell you of HIS soon return, and I have.

“And then if any man shall say to you, Lo, here is CHRIST; or, lo, HE is there; believe him not: For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect. [You can hear these false prophets on coast to coast programs wooing people, calling people away from the KJV BIBLE, speaking of the end-time signs. However, they eliminate THE WORD of GOD and SALVATION, and people foolishly pay attention to them! Read only the KJV BIBLE so you can stand, for SPIRITUAL POWER!] But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things.

“But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the SON of MAN coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then shall HE send HIS angels, and shall gather together HIS elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When her branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is near: So ye in like manner, when ye shall see these things come to pass, know that it is nigh, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. [The generation that sees all these things come to pass will see GOD’S plan be completed.]

“Heaven and earth shall pass away: but MY WORDS shall not pass away. But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in Heaven, neither the SON, but the FATHER. [No, we don’t know the exact day or hour, but we do know when summer is coming by observing the fig tree, when it leaves and buds.] Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. For the SON of MAN is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. Watch ye therefore: for you know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping” (Mark 13:21-36).

The LORD showed me a vision of those who are caught sleeping. I’ve written about the vision I had.5 The vision was of an English bulldog. The back part of his body was in a dog house. His head and front part were outside of the dog house, and he was in a deep, peaceful sleep. It was a beautiful spring day. The vision widened, and there was a lion sitting next to his head. The top of his head looked as if it was a bowl that dogs eat out of, and the lion was, without hindrance, lapping the dog’s brains out of the bowl, which was the top of the dog’s head.

The dog is symbolic of the sleeping world. The sleeping world is not watching because it is sleeping. This is why JESUS commands us, “Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the MASTER of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly HE find you sleeping. And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch” (Mark 13:35-37).

You must be born again of the SPIRIT of GOD.6 Start out now by saying this prayer:


My LORD and my GOD, have mercy upon my soul, a sinner. 1 I believe that JESUS CHRIST is the SON of the living GOD. 2 I believe that HE died on the cross and shed HIS precious blood for the forgiveness of all my former sins. 3 I believe that GOD raised JESUS from the dead by the power of the HOLY SPIRIT 4 and that HE sits on the right hand of GOD at this moment, hearing my confession of sin and this prayer. 5 I open up the door of my heart, and I invite YOU into my heart, LORD JESUS. 6 Wash all of my filthy sins away in the precious blood that YOU shed in my place on the cross at Calvary. 7 YOU will not turn me away, LORD JESUS; YOU will forgive my sins and save my soul. I know because YOUR WORD, the Bible, says so. 8 YOUR WORD says that YOU will turn no one away, and that includes me. 9 Therefore, I know that YOU have heard me, and I know that YOU have answered me, and I know that I am saved. 10 And I thank YOU, LORD JESUS, for saving my soul, and I will show my thankfulness by doing as YOU command and sin no more.11

After salvation, JESUS said to be baptized, fully submerged in water, in the name of the FATHER, and of the SON, and of the HOLY SPIRIT.12 Then study the King James Version Bible, and, for your benefit and the benefit of others, do what it says.13

CHRIST and GOD the FATHER now live in you through the HOLY SPIRIT. There is a way you can receive a fuller portion of the divine nature of GOD in you. The more the divine nature of GOD lives in you, the more you will be able to stand against the temptations that have so easily moved so many millions of Christians away from salvation. Pray for the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT.14 For instructions on how to receive the baptism in the HOLY SPIRIT and to receive more of GOD’S holy nature, ask for our literature or call. For without holiness, no man shall see GOD (Hebrews 12:14).

If you want the world saved, as JESUS commands, then don’t rob GOD of HIS tithes and offerings. GOD said, “Will a man rob GOD? Yet ye have robbed ME. But ye say, Wherein have we robbed THEE? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed ME, even this whole nation [and this whole world]. Bring ye all the tithes [a ‘tithe’ is 10% of your gross income] into the storehouse, that there may be meat [Spiritual food] in MINE house [souls saved], and prove ME now herewith, saith the LORD of HOSTS, if I will not open you the windows of Heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the LORD of HOSTS. And all nations shall call you blessed: for ye shall be a delightsome land, saith the LORD of HOSTS” (Malachi 3:8-12).
