The whole world is on the brink of disaster—ruin.1 The meaning of disaster or ruin is the abyss. This world is an abyss is so evil and so deep that it cannot be measured. In the book of Revelation, Chapter 11, Verse 1, the Apostle John was told by the LORD to “measure the temple of GOD, and the altar, and them that worship therein.” We who are Christians measure all things by the WORD of GOD.2 The WORD of GOD is the true measuring rod by which all things are measured, whether good or bad, and the WORD of GOD tells us that we who are saved are the temples of GOD. First Corinthians 3:16 states, “Know ye not that ye are the temple of GOD, and that the SPIRIT of GOD dwelleth in you?” Verse 17 adds, “If any man defile the temple of GOD, him shall GOD destroy; for the temple of GOD is holy, which temple ye are.” First Corinthians 6:19 states, “What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the HOLY SPIRIT which is in you, which ye have of GOD, and ye are not your own?”
In Revelation 11:1, we are commanded to measure the altar and those that worship therein with the WORD of GOD. We are not to measure or judge anything with our own judgment, our own measurement, but are to judge all things with the WORD of GOD.3 First Corinthians 6:2 says, “Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye [you Christians] unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we [born again Christians] shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life [by the WORD of GOD]? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church [because even a newly saved Christian, if they use the WORD of GOD, can judge all things perfectly]” (1 Corinthians 6:2-4).4
Revelation 11:2 notes, “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles [the lost people of the world, the people of the abyss, those whose sinfulness is too deep for measurement, for they are with the beast government that rises from the abyss, the one-world government in which we are currently living, the government which has brought the whole world to the brink of ruin or disaster.5 The sinfulness of this government is so deep it is a bottomless gulf, too deep to be measured.]: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months” (Revelation 11:2).
JESUS said, “As many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the DEPTHS OF SATAN [the abyss], as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. But that which ye have already hold fast till I come” (Revelation 2:24B-25). The one-world government is the abyss of shame, extremely evil and wretched.
Revelation 11:7 states, and when the two witnesses of GOD have finished their testimony, the beast (the spirit of Hell which is ruling the abyss, the disaster, the ruin of all nations, which is the one-world government) shall rise up out of this disastrous and ruinous government, the abyss, and shall overcome GOD’S two witnesses, and murder them. Remember, the word “abyss” describes this disastrous and ruinous government, a bottomless pit. In the book of Isaiah, chapter 14, the WORD of GOD tells us the judgment of Satan, he who is orchestrating the disaster and ruin occurring today in the whole world (Isaiah 14:9-17). The world government thought they would gain a great victory for the world to see when they would murder the two witnesses of GOD, just like Satan thought when CHRIST was crucified. However, CHRIST was buried, rose from the dead, then ascended into Heaven, and HE is alive forever and ever more.6 The same goes for GOD’S two witnesses. “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our LORD was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations [the abyss] shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another [they do this because they are so wicked that their wickedness can’t be measured]; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth [the gospel message preached by these two witnesses is what tormented them, because of the plagues they caused. But look what happens—victory!] And after three days and an half the SPIRIT of LIFE from GOD entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from Heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to Heaven in a cloud [just like JESUS did7]; and their enemies beheld them” (Revelation 11:8-12).
GOD allowed JESUS to die, but the miracle of the resurrection happened shortly thereafter. The LORD allowed the two witnesses to be murdered so that the world can see their resurrection as well. JESUS, the two witnesses, and thousands of other Christians have suffered horrible persecutions to see if they deserve to spend eternity in paradise.8 Our life span is short, but we will all go to our long home, which will either be Heaven or Hell.9 That’s why we have to never be discouraged, and let GOD do with us as HE will.10 As the old saying goes, “When the going gets rough, the rough get going.” JESUS never said Christianity would be a bed of roses. HE tells us, “If any man will come after ME, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow ME” (Luke 9:23). JESUS tells us that the times will get rougher than ever before, but only those that endure to the end will be saved.11 You might as well get started now, before it’s too late, for the time of the end is near. Accept the LORD JESUS CHRIST now as your personal SAVIOR 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
