Christ speaks to us about the Warning (03/28/2014)

Presenting this for your discernment only.

The original source for this information is here.

TRANSCRIPTION OF LIGHT OF MARY’S CONFERENCE
(PART 2)
March 28-2014
 
Brothers and sisters:
 
CHRIST SPEAKS TO US OF THE WARNING:
 
The Warning has been announced at Garabandal, an event that keeps believers and nonbelievers alert.
 
The Warning was given to me to suffer in advance, this does not exonerate me from the instant in which I must live it like all human beings. Christ made me understand that the Warning is a product of an impious man who has given himself into the clutches of evil, and it is because of that, that humanity’s wickedness will generate the fulfillment of this event out of Divine Mercy.
 
This event has a spiritual origin. From days before the Warning man will perceive within himself the proximity of this Act of Divine Mercy. Cosmic intervention cannot be separated, for well in advance, scientists will spy an asteroid that approaches Earth, they will alert humanity and expectancy will be chaotic. The imminence of the asteroid’s route towards the Earth will alert all of humanity. Man will see the asteroid and terror will seize human beings, but that the ever-present Divine Hand will act to blow up the asteroid and it will not reach the Earth, although its destruction will be seen by humanity, some fragments will fall upon the Earth without causing greater damages.
 
The light the explosion of the asteroid will release will be so great that the human eye will be left as if blinded, a fact that will disturb an already terrified man. Some might even lose their life by suffering a heart attack before the terror that will invade them because of the unknown.
 
Thus we see that this day all men will know that their conscience will be scrutinized, as the origin of Divine Mercy. After this, humanity will enter into a chaos fatal as never before…
 
The Warning is not far from humanity, that is why they call us constantly to be true. A very big weapon the devil is using is untruth.
 
We have our expectations and hopes in the Warning for humanity to be better and we are never more wrong as when we think like this. The Warning is something personal, it is something of the conscience, yes it is something of the conscience. But what will happen with those who have no conscience? They are going to forget and deny the Warning because they have no conscience, they are going to say it was manipulated by the Church or other interests. The Warning is something totally personal, we know that it will take place like a movie for us, but it is not Christ who will show us the movie, it is us who are going to show all of our works and actions of life to ourselves: the good we have done and the evil we have committed, as well as the good we have ceased to do; we ourselves will judge what we have done and how we have acted. We will know if we have done it well or not.
 
 I think about the people who have a conscience, but about those who do not have a conscience for good. Will they be able to see the evil they have done? And will they be aware? Will they accept that evil? They will be able to see the evil they have done and the good they have ceased to do. And there each one will then go about, I would not say judging, but rather that there each one will finish defining himself or herself, to make the decision: evil or good. What side am I on?
 
In all the corners of the Earth, man’s mind will shake, not out of fear, but out of trepidation towards what he sees and is unknown to him, all that is in motion will fall but the Hand of Christ will not allow lives to be lost, for the effect of the asteroid will interrupt all the systems of communication. People experiencing great fear will want to reach their homes and man will panic; some will lash out against others fighting for the survival of the body and not of the soul. Immediately that light will cease to be that of the asteroid to be Divine Light, in the conscience of each and every human being, then everyone will be taken in a particular way.
 
The conscience, which is like man’s memory card, for it registers even the most minimal act or work done by him, will make man seek refuge in the face of the fear he will suffer. The fear will be generated by the evil that has seized human beings, otherwise, the Warning would have been mitigated since, as it will be a torment so great for those conscious of Christ’s absence, for those who are not conscious of the Divine Presence within them, will enter directly into panic and from there they will pass the scrutiny of themselves. They will be instants, seconds that will seem unending, and the pain in everyone will be the same as that suffered by the souls in the greatest punishment of hell: the remoteness of Christ, the pain of not having Him.
 
It will seem like hours, but it will be instants and after that instant has passed, immediately the person will have his liberty. It will be an instant, some seconds in which our entire life will pass, all our works and acts before us, except that in those instants we will not have free will, rather we will be before all that we have done. Immediately after the Warning has passed, free will will enter again and many will say: this is a work and manipulation of Science so that we go through all of this and so we do not believe that this event came from God, and continue on the side of evil.
 
That is why the Warning is a test for the conscience, that is why we must exercise our conscience now. Because it is a test for the conscience of each one of us, it is not something that will modify the course of coming events. What will happen, what needs to happen, will happen. It will be a test, to modify our works and our actions, so that our conscience is greater and is able to understand what it has not understood before, those who freely want it so.
 
Then the persecution of the Church of Christ will take place, the arrival of the antichrist will likewise come about, wars will begin, famines will come and plagues will come, because the Warning is not there to modify the course of events; it is there, I would say, to modify man’s conscience. It is a test for my conscience.
 
What the Warning will do is make us more aware, so that we see with another perspective. It will help us become more aware of all that is happening. The more awareness we have now, the greater opportunity.
 
The evil creature of satan will take his active part within humanity getting all those who are lukewarm to rebel and those who do not believe in Christ to act more on satan’s side, allowing him to take the reigns on all their works and acts, and the wickedness of the devil will spill in its entirety within men. Bloody instants, grinding of teeth where man will not know good, only and only the Holy Remnant will remain as small lights that illuminate the Earth.
 
In this moment, do parents speak to their children of what is happening? But these children who are going to suffer the Warning, are already formed and have taken a conscience and a decision that is very erroneous and mistaken. That is why we have the duty to act, now! Rather we are acting late.
 
I know that the conscience is a Gift from God, but just as life is a Gift from God and man has despised life, so the conscience is a Gift from God and man despises the conscience.
 
We ask Christ to give us His Word:
 
“Jesus took the Twelve aside and told them, ‘We are going up to Jerusalem, and everything that is written by the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled. He will be delivered over to the Gentiles. They will mock him, insult him and spit upon him; they will flog him and kill him. On the third day he will rise again.’ The disciples did not understand any of this. Its meaning was hidden from them, and they did not know what he was talking about.”
The Word of the Lord. (Lk. 18: 31-34)
 
Just as all that Christ tells us now and we do not want to understand, so many of the things Christ told his disciples, they did not understand until after. Then we, when we understand, will say: yes, it was true! And we will lament with tears of blood for not having acted.

Divine Mercy Sunday and the Great Warning

On May 1st, 2011, Pope John Paul II will be beatified. He was reportedly the confessor to Sister Faustina, which makes this day a possible candidate for the Great Warning.

About Sister Faustina
On October 5, 1938 a young nun by the name of Sister Faustina (Helen Kowalska) died in a convent of the Congregtation of Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Cracow, Poland. She came from a very poor family that had struggled hard on their little farm during the terrible years of World War 1. She had only three years of very simple education. Hers were the humblest tasks in the convent, usually in the kitchen or the vegetable garden, or as a porter.

On Feb. 22, 1931, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, bringing with him a wonderful message of Mercy for all humanity. Sister Faustina tells us in her diary under this date: "In the evening when I was in my cell, I became aware of the Lord Jesus clothed in a white garment. One hand was raised in blessing, the other was touching the garment at the breast. From the opening in the garment at the breast there came forth two large rays, one red, and the other pale. In silence I gazed intently at the Lord; my soul was overwhelmed with fear, but also with great joy. After a while Jesus said to me: " paint an image according to the pattern you see, with this inscription: 'Jesus, I trust in you. ' "
Some time later, Our Lord again spoke to her: " The pale ray stands for the Water which makes souls righteous; the red ray stands for the Blood which is the life of souls. These two rays issued forth from the depths of my most tender Mercy at that time when My agonizined heart was opened was opened by a lance on the Cross.... Fortunate is the one who will dwell in their shelter, for the just hand of God shall not lay hold of him"

About the End Times, Sister Faustina wrote
Jesus said " Write down these words, My daughter. Speak to the world about My Mercy; let all mankind recognize My unfathomable Mercy. It is a sign for the end times; after it , will come the day of justice. While there is still time, let them have recourse to the fount of My Mercy; let them profit from the Blood and water which gushed forth for them........ before I come as the just one, I first open wide the gates of My Mercy. He who does not pass through the gates of My Mercy must pass through the gates of justice.

Before I come as the just judge, I am coming first as the King of Mercy. Before the day of justice arrives, there will be given to people a sign in the heavens of this sort:

All light in the heavens will be extinguished, and there will be a great darkness over the whole earth. Then the sign of the cross will be seen in the sky, and from the openings where the hands and the feet of the Saviour were nailed will come forth great lights which will light up the earth for a period of time. This will take place shortly before the last day."


On a later occasion Our Lady appeared to St Faustina and said the following words: "I gave the Saviour to the world. As for you, you have to speak to the world about His great mercy and prepare the world for the Second Coming of Him who will come, not as a merciful saviour, but as a just Judge. O how terrible is that day! Determined is the day of justice, the day of divine wrath. The angels tremble before it. Speak to souls about this great mercy while it is still time for mercy. If you keep silent now, you will be answering for a great number of souls on that terrible day."

European Seer: The Truth given at the Great Warning

Prophet: the Warning - European seër

THW10120701
The Truth given at the Great Warning

Message to the Warning - European seër
The Great Warning to Mankind is meant to understand the truth

Received Tuesday 7th December 2010 3.15am

Yes, My beloved daughter, I am back.
Write this.
You, My daughter, will now help Me to lead My people back to the light, the light of the truth.

No man will be denied the chance by Me to see the truth of God. They will be shown mercy by the GIFT OF PROOF to be given to them that I exist. They will be given this gift when, DURING THE GREAT WARNING, THEY WILL FINALLY KNOW THE TRUTH. Sadly NOT ALL will turn, even at that stage, towards Me or My Father’s Eternal Kingdom.

You will know by now that these messages COME FROM ME and they all deal with VERY IMPORTANT ISSUES.

I think you can now DISCERN the truth of My teachings between that of your imagination. My daughter, you can see now the hurt and despair I feel, when you witness almost daily the frustration, that I, and My Eternal Father, feel at the attitudes of THIS SAD, EMPTY AND DISBELIEVING world.

Not only do the disbelievers cause you pain, but through the gifts and graces, that I have given you, you also see the CONFUSION, that exists even in the minds of my followers. They too are NOT EASILY CONVINCED by the truth, when it is given to them as a gift of love from Me THROUGH MY PROPHETS.

What a long winding road this is for My children when striving towards the truth and the promises that I have given them. Looking at My children every day, in person, on the street, on TV, in the media and amongst your neighbour you see them through My eyes now. What do you see ? Total OBLIVION TO THE SPIRITUAL WORLD and a LACK OF REAL PURPOSE in their lives. A SENSE OF HOPELESSNESS despite the attractions of worldly pursuits.

My children do not realise it now, but they are going THROUGH A CLEANSING. This purification, where they are experiencing an ACUTE SENSE OF EMPTINESS due to lack of material goods has been allowed by Me.

Yet it has all been caused by the greed of mankind. By allowing people the right to their own free will, then they, the evil perpetrators of the collapse of the banking system worldwide, will continue with their CUNNING DECEIT.

I have allowed My people, the innocent victims, to undergo this cleansing. It is very important, that they do because the hardships that they endure will help cleanse their souls.

Very soon as MATERIAL GOODS BECOME LESS AND HARDER TO ATTAIN they will see life in a deeper way.

SIMPLICITY WILL HELP OPEN THEIR EYES TO THE TRUTH, the truth of what is really important.

Without this purification, when My children are permitted to suffer for the sake of their souls, they cannot and will not become closer to My heart.

STRIPPED BARE OF THE MATERIAL GOODS for which they held such an IDOLATRY OBSESSION in the past, they will turn back to the truth.

With clarity they will see the love in each other’s souls. So too will they VERY QUICKLY SEE THE EVIL in all its ugly glory in those who follow the lure of self obsession and greed.

They will now view these people, who are GIVEN CREDENCE IN THE MEDIA as being those one should look up to and admire, in the same way in which I view them. That is with UTTER DESPAIR AND SADNESS.

Go now, My daughter, and understand your task with clear eyes. You now know the truth. You no longer doubt. Spread the truth of salvation as soon as possible to afford people the chance of redemption BEFORE the Great Warning.

Your beloved Saviour Jesus Christ

The Warning: Chapter 10

OUR HEAVENLY HOME
RAPTURE READY CHRISTIANS WANT TO MAKE HEAVEN THEIR ETERNAL HOME!
By: Kevin Martin

1 Thessalonians 4:14-17 states, "For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord." It is important to know and believe that Jesus is coming back and that Heaven exists.

HEAVEN OR HELL
There are only two destinations for human beings. It is either Heaven or Hell. Choose the straight road and go to Heaven or choose the wrong road and go to Hell. The broad road of sin and hypocrisy leads to Hell. The narrow road of holiness and truth leads to life eternal. Choose the right road and go in the rapture.

HEAVEN IS THE DWELLING PLACE OF GOD
Heaven is the throne of God. It is the dwelling place of the most high. It is the home of our heavenly father who is the Lord Jesus Christ. Matthew 5:34 - 35 states. "Heaven is God's throne and the earth is his footstool." When Jesus was teaching on prayer in Matthew 6:9, He said, "Our father which art in heaven." This clearly identifies Heaven as being the home of our Lord. God's abode is a unique realm, not to be identified with the physical creation: In Deuteronomy 10:14, the Scripture says "Behold the heaven and heaven of Heavens is the Lord's thy God."

A HEAVENLY HOME IS PREPARED
There is a special place that God has prepared for those who love Him and keep his commandments, John the Revelator is the only human being to see the New Jerusalem. We could not even imagine what Heaven is like, however it has been described to us. It is beyond our wildest dreams, Jesus said in John 14, "In my fathers house are many mansions: if it were not so I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself: that where I am, there ye may be also." Jesus promised to come back for the Church. Are you ready for his coming?

THE HOLY CITY, NEW JERUSALEM
The Lord showed John a revelation of the city that he prepared for His Church. John saw this beautiful city coming down from God. Revelation 21:2 states, 'And I, John, saw the holy city. New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband." Very soon our eyes will See Heaven. We will behold its beauty as the bridegroom presents it to the bride. The bride and the bridegroom will be brought together for that great wedding day.

HOW LARGE IS THE HOLY CITY?
John saw the angel measure the new city. Revelation 21:16 says that it is 12.000 furlongs or 3,000 kilometres square. The New Jerusalem will also be 3000 kilometres high. This is a great city! It is a place to look forward to seeing and calling our eternal home. We will be there forever and forever.

THE WALLS OF THE NEW JERUSALEM
Revelation 21:10 informs us, that John was carried away in the spirit to a great and high mountain. One of the beauties that he beheld was a great wall made of Jasper. The wall of Jasper, that surrounded the Holy City, measured one hundred and forty and four cubits or seventy meters tall. Jasper is like glass and is very hard. The city is like a beautiful green coloured Gem. It is colourful and clear as crystal. It is more beautiful than anything in all the world. Revelation 21:19-22 tells us that the foundations of the wall of the city are garnished with all manner of precious stones.

THE TWELVE GATES OF THE CITY
Twelve entrances are located in the walls. Three gates are on each side of the city. At each entrance there will be an angel standing guard. Revelation 21:12, "John saw the wall great and high, and there were twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of Israel." Beyond the gates are streets of pure gold. Revelation 21:21. "The streets of the city were pure gold, as it were transparent glass."

THE HOLY CITY IS A PLACE OF PURITY
When a wall is built around something, it is built for security. Our heavenly home will be a place of eternal safety. In Matthew 6:20 Jesus said. "Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal." Within the walls of this city there will not be anything that can corrupt. There will not be any pollution or harmful chemicals that cause rust. Nothing can harm the people that go to heaven.

JESUS IS THE LIGHT IN THE NEW JERUSALEM
In Revelation 21:22 John said, "And I saw no temple therein, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it." On earth, man has worshipped God in temples made with man's hands. In the city of God, there is no need of an earthly temple. Jesus is the temple. He will be the light of the city. Revelation 21:23, "And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof,"

HEAVEN IS A PLACE OF PEACE
It is difficult to find peace on the earth. The only true peace on the earth is having God inside you. It is wonderful to know that when a Christian lays down at night that he is ready for the rapture. Heaven is a place of peace. This peace is so awesome that problems of life will not destroy the faith of the Christian. During the interval between the warning and the rapture Satan and his demonic forces will attempt to discourage the faithful of God's church. All true Christians will keep their faith, will not waver and will be with Jesus forever.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! BEING PREPARED FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD IS IMPORTANT TO YOUR SALVATION.
YOU WILL ONLY GO IN THE RAPTURE IF YOU ARE A TRUE CHRISTIAN.

The Warning: Chapter 9

HELL, THE DESTINY OF THE SINFUL
By: John L. Willhoite

RAPTURE READY CHRISTIANS WILL NOT GO TO A BURNING HELL!
Eternity is infinite, limitless, immeasurable and forever. Time, bounds, shores, or the finite does not limit it. The eternal is without end. When dealing with God, we must deal with the eternal. For instance, the redemption that Jesus Christ secured for us on Calvary is eternal. Hebrews 9:12, "Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us." Our salvation that Jesus brought to us gives us eternal life. Hebrews 5:9 states, "And being made perfect, He became author of eternal salvation unto all that obey Him." Majestic Heaven, the abode of God, is a permanent eternal place. The hope of every Christian is to make this place their permanent residence.

HELL IS AN ETERNAL PLACE
It may shock you to learn that there is an actual violent, turbulent, raging, ever-burning, never to cease place of punishment, a place where the sinful do not die: and the fierce scorching fire is not quenched. Hell is a true reality, unfaked, unexaggerated, and bona fide place. It is the actual residence of judged, condemned sinners, fallen angels, the devil, the false prophet, and the Antichrist.

JESUS DESIRES TO SAVE EVERYONE
God has acted at great personal cost to free us from eternal punishment. John 3:16 states, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." The price was paid on an old rugged cross. John 3:1 7 states, "For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world: but that the world through Him might be saved." Every person must make the decision for his or her eternal destination

HELL AND BIBLE REFERENCES
Hell is mentioned in the Bible numerous times. 11 Samuel 22:6 says that it is a place of sorrows, "The sorrows of Hell compassed me about." Luke 16 says that Hell is a place of torment. "And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments." Matthew 5:29 confirms that there is suffering in Hell. "It is more profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish and not that thy whole body should be cast into Hell." Hell is not a popular subject. No matter how unpopular the subject is everybody should be informed of the burning Hell. There is a real burning Hell! It is not a pleasant thought, but it is better to think about Hell now and repent, than to ignore the fact and do nothing about your salvation. Do not wait until it is too late to make a decision to serve the Lord.

HELL NOT MADE FOR MANKIND
Hell was not made for humanity. God was forced to create a burning Hell because of the fall of the angels. Satan and his demons were condemned to spend eternity in Hell when they rebelled against God. Jesus himself declares in Matthew 25:41 that Hell has been prepared for the devil and his angels.
MAN REBELLED AGAINST GOD
Man rebelled against God. 11 Peter 2:4-6, "For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment: And spared not the old world, but saved Noah, the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorra into ashes, condemned them with an overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly."

HELL IS ENLARGING HERSELF
Proverbs 27:20 states that "Hell is never full." The Bible is true. Hell is never full because it is constantly enlarging itself. Isaiah 5:14, 'Hell is enlarging herself without measure." Why is Hell enlarging herself? It is not necessary to make the prison larger if the population placed inside the walls is not increasing. Hell is enlarging herself to accommodate the millions who were not scheduled to go there. God made Hell and set it on fire with eternal fire. The roaring flames eat away at the enclosure of I fell while most sinners have little knowledge of their final destiny.

CLEAR DESCRIPTION OF HELL
The clearest description of Hell is found in Luke 16. "There was a certain rich man which was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously. And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores. And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. And it came to pass that the beggar died and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom, the rich man also died and was buried: And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torment and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said. Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue, for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, "Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receiveth thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things, but now he is comforted and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed; so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot: neither can they pass to us that would come from thence."

RICH MAN'S STORY REVEALS SEVERAL THINGS

1. A person will have a body in Hell. The person will not be spirit only, but will have eyes, tongue, voice, and memory. The inhabitants of Hell will have feelings. They will think about loved ones, be thirsty, feel pain, and be remorseful for the life they lived while on the earth.

2. Hell's population will be able to remember the good things they had on the earth and the bad that they did during their lifetime.

3. Voices will be heard in Hell. Some will be crying for water; others will pray for mercy; and others will pray for lost family members.

Yes! It is true! Hell will be full of people who refused to pray while on earth, but in Hell they will be willing to pray.

THE NARROW AND THE BROAD WAY
There is a narrow way that leads to life eternal. A broad road leads to Hell. Matthew 7:13-14, Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat; Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it." Millions are marching to the cadence of Satan, Marching to their eternal destiny; headed for a Hell that was not prepared for them.

THE PLAN OF SALVATION
We can all be thankful that the story does not end here. There is a way to escape from going to Hell that has been provided by God. Jesus does not desire that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and eternal life.

ACTS 2:38 IS THE PLAN
Peter shouted on the day of Pentecost. "Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." First a person must place their faith in Jesus Christ. The second step is repentance. The third step is baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. The fourth step is to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking with new tongues.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! HELL IS THE ETERNAL DESTINY OF THOSE INDIVIDUALS WHO CHOOSE THE BROAD ROAD! JESUS IS COMING!
WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF YOU MISS THE RAPTURE?

The Warning: Chapter 8

This is another chapter from the booklet on the rapture. Again, this isn't Catholic in teaching.

FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
RAPTURE READY CHRISTIANS GIVE SACRIFICIALLY TO GOD'S WORK
By: John L. Willhoite

THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY
God placed the five-fold ministry in the early Church. All five ministries still exist in the Church of the end-time. They are: Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers.
1. Apostle - This word means, "sent." Sent by whom? An apostle is a person who goes to a country, a city, or any area to raise up a new work. The original apostles were the pioneers of the Church. They established the Church in unreached areas. Apostles are sent by the Lord and the existing Church to establish the gospel in unreached areas. How is the apostle supported financially? He is dependent upon the pastors and local churches for his assistance.

2. Prophet - Prophets do not go around prophesying all of the time, even though this is an important part of their ministry. Their work impacts a nation with challenges against sin and corruption in high places. A prophet is sometimes sent to stir up Church and bring the members to their knees. How is the prophet supported? He usually has no financial support other than that, which is generated through the local pastors and churches.

3. Evangelist - The evangelist is a travelling minister who does not pastor a local church. His ministry consists of perfecting Christians and ministering to the unsaved. How is the evangelist supported financially? He receives offerings from the pastors and local churches.

4. Teachers - Teachers are given for the perfection of the saints. They are one of God's gifts to the Church, yet their ministry is usually supported by themselves.


How should a teacher be supported financially? The pastors and local churches should support the teacher's ministry

5. Pastors - Pastors care for the local congregations. How are the pastors supported financially? They usually derive their income from the tithe of the local church. The pastors are chosen by God to be the stewards and treasurers for all five ministries. The local pastor is responsible to God for the money received from the congregation. It is an awesome responsibility to govern God's money. The money must be distributed properly. God will refuse to bless the church and pastor if this is not done. The money may continue to flow, however, empty altars and discouraged, spiritually dead members are the results of not taking care of the ministries.

A RIGHT ATTITUDE TOWARDS GIVING
A person must give with a right attitude or the Lord will not accept it. Giving is not to be begrudged with a feeling that you are forced to give. We are to give cheerfully. "For God loveth a cheerful giver." The Bible says, "Then the people rejoiced. for that they offered willingly, because with a perfect heart they offered willingly unto the Lord, and David the king also rejoiced with great joy."

BIBLICAL TITHING
Proverbs 3:9 states, "Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the first-fruits of all thine increase." Abraham was the first to give tithe to the Lord. It is said in Genesis 14:20, "And blessed be the most high God, which bath delivered thine enemies unto thy band. And he gave him tithes of all." The tithe is 10 percent of your earnings. Jacob said in Genesis 28:22, "And this stone which I have set as a pillar, shall be God's house and all that thou shalt give me, I will give the tenth unto thee." A tither is blessed financially by the Lord. Systematic giving is required of all Christians. We must set aside our tithe and offerings. If we do not separate the Lord's money from our own, we may he tempted to spend it. Leviticus 27:30 reveals to us that tithe and offerings are "holy unto the Lord." The Bible teaches in 1 Corinthians 16:2 "Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him."

GIVING SACRIFICIAL GIFTS
All true Christians are required to give sacrificially to world missions during the interval between the warning and the rapture. The spirit of generosity is coming to those who wish to follow God. Lands will be sold and the entire amount given to overthrow the power of the devil. The Church is realizing that money will be needed to complete the work of the Lord in the earth before his coming. The members and pastors are sacrificially committing their possessions and finances for God's work.

WAYS TO BLESS THE LORD THROUGH GIVING
There are several ways to bless the Lord with your finances:

1. Sacrificial gifts for the work of the local church.
2. Tithe must be given faithfully by every person who has financial gain. Ten percent of all finances belong to God.
3. Home missionary giving is productive. This is for the missionaries who live and work in the same country where they were native born.
4. Foreign Missionaries must be supported. How shall we evangelize the world if we never make a commitment to help them carry the gospel around the world?

STAGNANT POOLS
The local pastor and church officials control the money of the Church. They direct the funds into the proper channels. A body of water will become stagnant if it has no outlet. Thriving churches must give to those who carry the gospel or they will become stagnant cesspools.

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU GIVE
It is the custom of some to make a big issue of their giving. They want everyone to know that they are giving and the amount they are giving. They prefer to give when there is a show of hands and not when the offering plate is passed. The reason for this is the desire for recognition from other members and the pastor.
There is nothing wrong with making a verbal commitment before the congregation of the Lord. However, if the only reason for giving is for recognition, you will receive your reward only from those around you who appreciate your giving.

THE LORD WILL CAUSE US TO PROSPER
God will honour your giving and pour out blessings on you, which causes a Christian to prosper financially. Three witnesses of this fact are listed.

1. The Lord said in Malachi 3:10, "Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, 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 is not room enough to receive it."

2. Jesus said in Luke 6:38, "Give and it shall be given to you, a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again."

3. Paul said. "He which soweth sparingly, shall reap also sparingly, and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully." We must give God an opportunity to prove himself. His giving to you is based on your giving to him. You can expect great returns as you give unto the Lord although this is not the primary reason for giving.

REVIVAL MUST TAKE PLACE NOW!
It is time to carry the gospel to the ends of the earth. The warning is now going out, "Behold the bridegroom cometh. Go ye out to meet him." Going out to meet Him involves your total life. This means that every pastor and member must give of themselves and their finances to be involved in the end-time revival.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! LAYING UP TREASURES ON EARTH IN THESE LAST DAYS WILL NOT BE PROFITABLE FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD.
THE WORLD CANNOT EXPLODE INTO APOSTOLIC REVIVAL WITHOUT FINANCES.
GIVE TO THE LORD'S WORK AND LET GOD WORK THROUGH YOU.

The Warning: Chapter 7

THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
By: John L. Willhoite

RAPTURE READY CHRISTIANS AND THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT
Ask yourself the question, "Is there evidence in my life that I am a true follower of Jesus Christ?" Jesus said in Matthew 7.'2() "By their fruits ye shall know them." The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance. True Christians radiate these traits constantly in their dealings with other people.

THE MOST IMPORTANT SIGN
The most important sign that all of the others are built around is love. It is a feeling of brotherhood and good will toward other people. Love causes a mother to hold her child, love is what makes a father support his family, love causes Christians to love their enemies, and love causes a person to ask for forgiveness.

FINAL APPROACH TO THE COMING OF THE LORD DEMANDS LOVE
As we approach the end of this age and the rapture of the Church from the earth, millions will go to Christians for help. The Church needs a fresh baptism of love to fill this need. A sign of love is a smile, a friendly look, or any act of kindness to another.

THE SECOND FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS JOY
The experience of the Holy Ghost brings joy to the believer. Paul said in Phillippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say rejoice." The Christian life was never meant to be sad and dreary. Our worship of Jesus Christ should be full of joy. The joy of the lord lifts us up above our burdens and trials. Nehemiah 8:10 says, "The joy of the Lord is my strength."

THE THIRD FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS PEACE
Millions of nervously upset people visit psychiatrists and spend fortunes searching for peace of mind. Many smoke cigarettes, drink beer, and take drugs to calm their nerves. This indicates a lack of peace in their souls and minds. God has promised to supply our needs. He has promised Heaven to us. A person that worries constantly needs to have faith in the promises of God, thus bringing about peace in the soul and mind.

THE FOURTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS LONG SUFFERING
In a word, long suffering means patience. We all know what patience is. Wait on the Lord and His timing for things to happen. He knows best. Do not try to rush things in your own timing, it will only mess things up.

THE FIFTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS GENTLENESS
The Spirit of God manifests itself as being gentle. When we have the Spirit of God in our lives we must be humane. A gentle person is not easily irritated and is never angry without a just cause. Gentleness is not being bad tempered. True Christians are not cruel and do not strike out at others. Solomon said in Proverbs 22:24-25, "Make no friendship with an angry man, and with a furious man thou shalt not go, lest thou learn his ways and get a snare to thy soul." Gentleness is a sign of strength.

THE SIXTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS GOODNESS
David said in Psalms 37:23, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord and he delighteth in his way." The integrity of a good man is above reproach. He is honest, righteous, and has good morals. The presence of a good man influences those around him to be good.

THE SEVENTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS FAITH
Faith is trusting God. It is belief in the existence of all unseen things that pertain to God. Paul spoke about faith.

1. Hebrews 11:6, "Without faith it is impossible to please him.
2. Hebrews 11:1, "Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."

Faith is a quality that can be transmitted to others. The fruit of faith is given to all Christians to give to others. Speaking words of faith to another person encourages him to continue to serve the Lord. The Bible says. "Faith cometh by bearing and hearing by the word of God."

THE EIGHTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS MEEKNESS
A meek Christian has the quality of humility. It means to be humble and submissive. Meekness means that when you do others wrong, you will ask for forgiveness. A meek person is submissive to God and to leadership. To be a true Christian with a meek spirit does not mean that he is not to be aggressive and without a vision. The meek person accepts the challenge to do the will of God, but he considers others and their opinions. He feels that others have the right to be leaders as well as himself.

THE NINTH FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT IS TEMPERANCE
Every Christian must have the quality of restraint. Temperance is restraint. Those who live without restraint give themselves to every basic desire in the human heart. The Bible tells us that the days of Noah were like the days we live in now. In the end-time they will be eating and drinking until the day of the rapture. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 9:25-27 "And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible. I therefore so run, not as uncertainly, so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into Subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should he a castaway.

JESUS MUST BE IN FULL CONTROL
Christians who have the love, joy and peace of God in their lives must spread Christianity. The Lord dwelling in our hearts and having full control will bring forth the fruit of the Spirit. Let the Spirit of God work in you and you will be fruitful in every good work. The rapture is soon to come. Remove hatred, malice, adultery, fornication, lying stealing from God, and all other elements of Satan from your mind and heart. Make wrong things right. If you have done something that hurt your brother in Christ do not be afraid to go to that person to ask forgiveness. Cling to the fruit of the Spirit.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! JESUS WILL RETURN SOON. THE CRY IS GOING OUT TO EVERY CHRISTIAN. "AWAKEN MY CHURCH, REPENT OF ILL FEELING AND SINFUL ATTITUDES! REMEMBER, THIS IS YOUR WARNING AT THE MIDNIGHT HOUR.
TRIM YOUR LAMP AND ADD THE FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT TO EVERY PART OF YOUR LIFE.

The Warning: Chapter 6

Just as note, Catholic prophecy and teachings doesn't subscribe to the idea of the rapture. I tend to agree in that aside from a couple vague verses in the bible, and some quite liberal interpretations from Protestment preachers over the years, there isn't any doctorine on the topic.

Still, I'm reprinting this because the terms of the document are including all of the content in full.

QUALIFIED TO GO IN THE RAPTURE
By: John L. Willhoite

HOLINESS IS AN ESSENTIAL ELEMENT TO BE ABLE TO GO IN THE RAPTURE!
In the beginning God created man a pure and spotless being. It was sin that brought enmity between God and man. As long as a person has sin in his life he cannot have a true relationship with God. Man must have holiness through the Spirit of God, which should dwell in him.

SEED OF HOLINESS PLANTED IN THE HEART
A seed of holiness is placed in the heart of every born again Christian. As the Spirit of God works in a Christian's life, the seed of holiness grows and develops. What is holiness? Holiness is the working of the Spirit in the soul by which a Christian is made like God. A Christian partakes of God's divine nature. We are told by Paul to "Follow peace with all men, and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.

HOLINESS BEGINS WITH-IN
Holiness effects the thoughts and the intents of the heart. It is revealed in a Christian's life by every word and step. It is a life of living outwardly the divine life of Jesus, which dwells within a child of God. Holiness goes to the core of the heart. It requires the heart to be set on God.

HOLINESS REQUIRED TO BE RAPTURE READY
"Without holiness, no man shall see the Lord" means just what it says in the Bible. You cannot go in the rapture without holiness. Do you think that God will continue to abide in a person who walks with Satan? Amos 3:3 declares differently. "Can two walk together, except they be agreed?" Rapture ready Christians are those who search their hearts regularly to strive for perfection. The Bible speaks to us about this. "Search me, O God, try me, and know my ways." His eyes can see what our eyes cannot, therefore we must put our trust in him to guide us into all of His ways.

STANDARDS ARE NECESSARY
When God took Israel out of Egypt under Moses leadership, he let it be known there were standards for them to live by. The Word of God dictated their conduct, manner of life, and even their clothing. Israel was required to keep these statues and laws throughout their future generations. Moses said in Exodus 18:16. "I do make them know the statutes of God, and his laws. "God declared in Deuteronomy 7:6, "For thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God: The Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself above all people that are upon the face of the earth."

DRESS STANDARDS GIVEN FOR ISRAEL
God spoke to Moses about his standards concerning what a man or woman should or should not wear. Men are not to wear ladies apparel and ladies are not to wear men's clothing.

THE HIGHWAY TO HOLINESS
Isaiah foresaw the future of the New Testament Church and said in Isaiah 62:10,12 and 35:8-9. "Go through, go through the gates: prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway: gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people. And they shall call them, The holy people. The redeemed of the Lord: and thou shalt be called, sought out, a city not forsaken. And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called the way of holiness, the unclean shall not pass over it: but it shall be for those, the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. The redeemed shall walk there." Isaiah further proclaimed in Isaiah 49:22. "Thus saith the Lord God. Behold, I will lift up mine hand to the Gentiles, and set up my standard to the people."

RAPTURE READY CHRISTIANS AND STANDARDS
God has set standards for the Church. There are standards for the life style, manner of dress, apparel, and doctrine of the New Testament Church. All Christians should observe these standards. They are called "standards" because guidelines must be established or standards set forth by the ministry that standardize our way of living in Christ Jesus. Even the weakest Christians know that there are things they can do or must not do. Trim your lamps and let holiness shine brightly through Bible standards.

HOLINESS AFFECTS OUR LIVES
Separation from the world will affect every part of a Christian's life. It will affect the conversation of the converted. Profanity, cursing, vulgarity, and lying cease to exist in a Christian's life. Rapture ready Christians guard their conversation. Paul instructs us in Philippians 1:27, "Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ." Gossip and speaking evil about others must be cleansed from every Christian.

RAPTURE READY CHRISTIANS ARE CAREFUL WHAT THEY SEE AND HEAR
True holiness standards will guide the Christian in the selection of reading materials. The true Christian does not fill his mind with filthy, lustful, pornographic books, dirty comics and lust filled magazines. Also worldly music can damage your Christian walk. Movies, lewd television programs, and ungodly commercial video films weaken your stand for God and truth. We must keep ourselves unspotted from the world. Our minds must be kept free of spiritual pollution or we will again be entangled in the web of Satan.

CHRISTIANS ARE NOT CAUGHT UP IN SEXUAL SINS
Christians will not practice homosexuality and lesbianism. Sin will not enter into I leaven. Those who have been involved in this type of sin must repent and change their ways to go in the rapture. The men who have effeminate ways and mannerisms and the ladies who have a tendency to be masculine will correct their mannerisms. Also, adultery and fornication must be repented of and changes made to prevent their reoccurrence.

SEPARATION FROM THE WORLD
Separation from the world will cause us to dress and look differently. True Christians do not expose their bodies to the eyes of the public. Men should not take their shirts off in public. Taking a bath or swimming in the public without sufficient coverage is shameful. Ladies should wear dresses that are modest. The dresses should not be so tight that every curve of the body is seen. Parents should provide sufficient clothing to hide the private parts of their children. A mother who is breast-feeding her child should cover herself while doing so. Separation from the world will change our bad and sinful habits. Smoking, beer drinking, whiskey drinking, gambling stealing, and all such like must be put away and not committed again. A godly woman will not wear lipstick or coloured cosmetics to beautify her self. Paul said in 1 Timothy 2:9-10, "Women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shame faced ness and sobriety: not with braided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array, But which becometh a woman professing godliness with good works. "The Christian woman knows that 1 Corinthians 11:15 states. "If a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her; for her hair is given to her for a covering." She will not cut her hair. A Christian man must not have long hair. 1 Corinthians 11:14 states, "Does not nature itself teach you that if a man have long hair it is a shame unto him."

RULES TO HELP YOU MAKE PROPER DECISIONS CONCERNING HOLINESS
Ask yourself these questions concerning everything you do or say.

1. Does the Bible condemn this?
2. Can I pray and ask Jesus to bless it?
3. Can I take Jesus with me while practicing it?
4. Will this be a blessing to others?
5. Will this be a stumbling block to anyone?
3. Will this hinder, in ally manner, my service to Jesus Christ?

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! THE RAPTURE IS APPROACHING AND YOU MUST BE READY TO GO.
"WITHOUT HOLINESS NO MAN SHALL SEE THE LORD."

The Warning: Chapter 5

PRAYER AND FASTING
By: Patsy Ree Martin

WHAT WILL PRAYER AND FASTING DO?
Prayer and fasting will put a spiritual sword in our hands so we can war against Satan. They give us strength to bear our daily burdens and carry us through the storms of life. They turn back the shadow of death, put a song in the Christians heart, lift the load of guilt and shame, fortify the soul, lift us when we have fallen, bring angels down from heaven, heal the soul, and reconcile the prodigal son. Dedicated prayer and fasting will still a storm, calm the waters, restore your soul, overcome Satan, and comfort the lonely.

HOW TO CONQUER YOUR FLESHLY DESIRES
When prayer and fasting are present in your life, fleshly desires become subject to God. Faith is increased and carnality bows to the Spirit. Unbelief is destroyed and a Christian becomes a channel for the Holy Ghost to work through. Prayer and fasting bring the victory by helping us to overcome sinful desires. Lust, hatred, malice, envy, bitterness and strife are easily conquered through prayer and fasting.

REASONS PEOPLE PRAY AND FAST
1. Some people pray and fast when they come face to face with things that they cannot overcome with their own strength. They must reach the end of their strength, have no ability of their own to escape the situation, and be beyond the help of others to feel the need to pray and fast. We pray because prayer brings new courage and power. The Scripture says in Isaiah 40:31. "They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength." Ingredients as important as prayer and fasting should prevail in every Christian's life.

2. One of the main reasons we pray and fast is for spiritual benefits. Through prayer, coupled with fasting, we can see answers to prayer that we have been praying about for years. Diseases and sickness disappear; temptations are overcome, and a powerful revival can come overnight.
We shall see God work miracles and see answers to prayers that we never dreamed possible. The ministry of pastors, evangelists, teachers, and organizational leaders experience Holy Ghost power through prayer and fasting. The gifts of the Spirit shall operate freely with no restraints. Prayer and fasting brings new anointing on our homes, families, and churches.

3. Christians pray because Jesus asked them to pray, in order to receive. Jesus said in John 14:13-14, "Whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask anything in my name, that will I do."

HINDRANCES TO PRAYER AND FASTING
1. The devil opposes every approach to God. He does all he can to stop Christians from praying and fasting because he knows the power of these two acts. He tries to fill all Christian's minds with other things to take their minds off of God. He constantly tells you that you are too tired and sleepy to pray. He uses the weapon of flesh against us.

2. Another hindrance to prayer and fasting is unbelief. James said. "Let him ask in faith nothing wavering (doubting). For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord."

3. Our carnal nature hinders us from praying and fasting. Sometimes we are too carnally minded to pray and do not like the sacrifice of fasting. We seek personal gain. Our time is taken up by the things that better our life materially, and we have very little time to pray. Prayer is an enemy to the carnal nature.

JESUS, OUR EXAMPLE
1. Prayer and fasting were first place in Jesus' life. He did not pray to prepare for the battle; it was the battle. He put forth His greatest energy during prayer. He prayed in the garden until his sweat was as great drops of blood. After prayer, Jesus went forth as the victor to receive the spoils of spiritual war. Victories were won in prayer and displayed in the Lord's daily life and in His death.

2. Prayer and fasting were important in the life of Jesus. This essential part o f the Christian life is being ignored by many even though Jesus fasted and prayed as our supreme example. The Bible says, "Jesus was led up of the spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil." The next sentence tells us that he fasted. Fasting is the preparation of the soul to insure victory over temptation and be rapture ready. Luke said that Jesus was tempted after forty days of fasting. He overcame the devil, won the victory over temptations, and the devil could do nothing to destroy Him.

3. Jesus revealed the reason He fasted for forty days in Matthew 17. The disciples had prayed for a lunatic boy. The boy was not delivered and healed. The father of the boy brought him to Jesus and the Lord cast the demons out. The disciples came to Jesus and asked why they could not cast the demons out. He told them that "this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting." The ingredients of prayer and fasting must be added to make a power package to drive the devil out.

THE AWAKENING CHURCH

Jesus prayed while others slept. He asked, "Can you not watch with me one hour?" He needed the spiritual support from others, but they fell asleep. The Church is sleeping. This is the midnight hour. Who will awake the Church with the cry? "Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him." The Scripture teaches that the Church will awaken for a short period at the midnight hour. The Church will hear the cry. "Behold the bridegroom cometh." Matthew 25 tells us that all ten of the virgins awoke at the sound of the warning. The foolish realized that they did not have oil in their vessel. They asked the wise if they could share their oil with them. The wise ones have only enough oil for themselves and say. "We do not have enough for us and you." It is possible that during the final awakening of the Church that some congregations will not have enough oil to share with others. Oil is a type of the Holy Ghost. We must find a place on our knees and pray for the holy oil of the Holy Ghost to saturate us with a new experience with God.

A CALL TO PRAYER AND FASTING
It is time for every member of the Church to hear the call to prayer and fasting. The end-time is upon us. The clock hands are at the midnight hour. The world is in turmoil and sin. Spiritually weak church members weaken the spiritual structure of the Church. Pray and fast for yourself, your family, the ministry, and the whole Church.

PRAYER AND FASTING BUILD MOUNTAIN MOVING FAITH
1. Mark 11:23 states. 'Whosoever shall say unto this mountain, be thou remove, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt it in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. This Scripture alone can change your life from doubt to faith and defeat to victory

2. Prayer and fasting will do many things. They will generate miracle faith, earth shaking faith, problem solving faith, and situation changing faith. During the time of the warning, there will be many difficulties to face. If you face life with faith, you can overcome.

3. Holy Ghost power is available to us, but we must take advantage of it. Many people spend their lives close to the riches of God and never take advantage of them. It is possible that we are sitting on top of the riches of God and have not yet discovered them.

4. Prayer and fasting will remove the mountains from your life, but you should not spend all of your prayer time for yourself and your family. Intercession should be made for others that are not part of your family. An intercessor is a person who prays for others until they receive help from the Lord.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! PRAY AND FAST! YOU MUST DO THESE THINGS TO PREPARE FOR THE RAPTURE!

The Warning: Chapter 4

PREPARATIONS FOR WORLD-WIDE REVIVAL
By: John L. Willhoite

A worldwide revival will come during the interval between the warning and the rapture. The Church will awaken at the sound of the warning. The awakening of the Church will cause all Christians to think differently than they have in the past. They will take more interest in the things of God and less in worldly success. This means that they will prepare for revival. As a result of this millions of souls will turn to God.

EVANGELISTIC MEETINGS AND REVIVAL
Most modern day "revivals" are evangelistic meetings designed to reach the lost. It is wonderful to have a series of meetings for this purpose, but this does not mean that revival is in the hearts of the members. True revival is the awakening of Christians. Evangelistic meetings are people attempting to reach people with the gospel. A revival is something that comes from God to man. Prayer, fasting, and a general return to the basics of Christianity are signs of true revival.

REVIVAL SPARKED BY THE DESIRE TO GET CLOSER TO GOD
The end-time revival will happen because of the desire to get closer to God. Prayer meetings, cooperative crusades, miracles, healing, deliverance and the general awakening of God's people will bring revival. Old-time, soul searching preaching will spark the desire for revival in true Christians.

JOHN THE BAPTIST ATTRACTED THE CROWD WITH A MESSAGE FROM GOD
John the Baptist did not have a problem attracting crowds. He did not have a huge cathedral. He shook the whole countryside with his awesome preaching of the kingdom of God and righteousness. John did not have a public address system, keyboard, guitars, or drums.
The people came to see and hear John because of his message of deliverance. The warning "Behold the bridegroom cometh. Go ye out to meet him" is powerful. This message alone will attract thousands to the Church. People will stop and take notice when they see the masses filling our church buildings. Several services per day will be conducted in many churches.

PROPHECIES FOR THE END-TIME
Many things will happen during the interval between the warning and the actual going into the bride chamber:
1. Church ministers will pray hours and hours for power from God.

The Warning: Chapter 3

THE GREAT AWAKENING
By: John L. Willhoite

Revivalists have long pictured the awakening of the Church. Evangelists and pastors of the past generations have spoken of revival in the future tense. "Revival is coming..' they have said. "It will be upon us sooner than we expect." Revival has been evasive, yet sporadic outpourings of the Spirit of God have been realized through the years. The measure of revival in the past is like a grain of sand on the beaches of the great awakening. The revivalists of the end-time who walk in the Spirit are now declaring the message. "Revival is now here. The great awakening is now in the beginning stages."

TEN VIRGINS A TYPE OF THE CHURCH
The great awakening is spoken of in Matthew 2~. The story is told of ten virgins. The virgins are a true type of the Church. They were divided into two groups. Five of them were wise and five of them were foolish. In the beginning of Matthew 25, the Bible says that all of the virgins went forth to meet the bridegroom. They all went forth to meet the bridegroom. However only five of them were fully prepared. This allegory is spoken of in other passages of Scripture. There would be "two in the bed, one was taken and the other left. Two were grinding at the mill, one was taken and the other left. Two were working in the field, one was taken and the other left." It appears that only half of the visible Church will go in the rapture. You must heed the call and awaken yourself immediately to take advantage of the last day warning.

HEED THE WARNING
The amazing thing is that all ten virgins were awakened by a warning. "Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet Him." This is telling us that we must heed the warning of God's messengers when they warn the Church of His imminent return. The reason for the warning is that lamps need to be trimmed for the world's greatest revival.

TRIMMING YOUR LAMPS
Oil lamps are still used by a large majority of the peoples of the world. You will notice that when a wick burns low until it goes out, that the wick has turned black. To trim your lamps means to pull the wick up, cut off the black, clean the globe of the lamp, replenish the supply of oil, and after lighting the wick again: the light will fill the room. There shall be light in the evening time that shall fill the world.

THE GLOBAL AWAKENING
The great global awakening of the Church will bring revival, however many will be unable to re-light their lamps because of the lack of oil in their vessels. It is possible to lead people into such delusion that the minister will not be able to re-light holiness and purity in the hearts of their followers. All of the virgins will attempt to re-light their lamps at the midnight cry. Because of sins terrible toll, five of them will not be able to continue their journey towards heaven. They will not be able to see their way in the darkness.

SUFFICIENT AND INSUFFICIENT OIL
All of the virgins carried oil in their lamps, however, it appears that additional oil for a long journey was not carried for their lamps. Because of the long wait for the coming of the Lord, the oil in their lamps was depleted. The warning of the coming of the Lord is now sounding and resounding around the world. Will you wait until it is too late to heed the warning to replenish the oil in your lamp and vessel?

THE INTERVAL BETWEEN
An interval between the time of the midnight warning and the rapture is obvious. After the awakening, the virgins had time to trim their lamps, talk to one another, and to go places. However it appears that this time was very brief. The coming of the Lord may be months away or possibly several years in the future. The information that modern day prophets have failed to see is this short interval of time. People live as though Jesus will never come. This must change.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING!

PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD IN THE AIR!

MIDNIGHT

The word midnight can mean one of three things.
1. God chose this time to warn the people to indicate that His coming was near.
2. God sees that the hour of the warning will be a sin-darkened hour.
3. God is giving the beginning of a new day because the mid-night hour is also
the beginning of a new day.
I prefer to choose all three of these as God's answer to the warning being given at the midnight hour.

THE LIGHT WILL BE AVAILABLE TO ALL
At the great awakening of the Church the light will be available to all who live on the earth. The power in the name of Jesus will not be denied. Millions of souls will fall on their faces to pray for the first time in their lives. Multiplied millions will repent of their sins, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

COMPROMISE WILL CEASE TO EXIST AMONG THE TRUE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST
Pastors, evangelists, teachers, prophets and apostles will burn midnight oil to bring about this worldwide revival. Compromise will be a thing of the past among these revivalists who set out to evangelize the world. They will ride as God's horsemen and will not tarry long in worldly atmospheres, but will desire the holy and the pure. They will set no evil thing before their eyes. Life in Jesus Christ will be more important than anything else in the world. These revivalists will rain terror upon Satan and his demonic powers. Their prayers and awesome preaching will penetrate the strongholds of Satan. No demon will be able to stand against the mighty thrust of Holy Ghost anointing. Sin and Satan will not stop them from evangelizing the world.

THE VOICE OF HOLINESS WILL BE HEARD
During the time of the warning, which is now upon us, millions will not be interested in a compromise gospel. They will desire a sure voice to be heard among them. Holy living will be the order of the day. The Church and the ministry will abhor unrighteousness.

STRONG DELUSION WILL COME FROM FALSE PROPHETS
Strong delusion will come to those who follow false prophets. Their eyes will not have sufficient light to see. Light is what makes things visible to our eyes. No light! No sight! Holiness will be a thing of the past among them. They will begin to think that darkness is light and holiness is not necessary to please a Holy God. Spiritual filth will turn their eyes away from God to worldly amusements and pleasure. Murders will be before their eyes, lust will fill their vision, and Satan will tell them that they are winning. Many will turn away from the truth, however, millions of others shall see the light and come to the truth with the beauty of holiness.

FLICKERING LAMPS
Many lamps will burn low on oil while the long wait for the coming Saviour passes. Those whose lamps are flickering without the necessary oil will not be allowed to participate in the spreading of the light. True, the ten virgins awoke, however five of them had trouble letting their light shine.

SPIRITUAL DARKNESS ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH
Darkness, yes, gross darkness will come upon the face of the earth. Thick spiritual darkness will be everywhere. The warning, "Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye out to meet him" reveals this darkness. The trimming of the lamps shall offset this darkness. Millions of tiny lights will blaze as a mighty forest fire in a dry season. People will be drawn to the lighted lamps as bugs to a light in the night. Consecration will be on its highest level since Christ walked on the earth.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! JESUS IS COMING SOON! BE READY!

The Warning: Chapter 2

BASIC PREPARATIONS FOR THE RAPTURE
By: John L. Willhoite

An individual must accept and do the will of God to prepare for the rapture. Obedience to the full plan of salvation is an absolute necessity. Many people have not come to God in full obedience to the Word of God. Because of this, they will he left behind to face the judgments of God.

BASIC PLAN OF SALVATION
The basic plan of salvation is divided into four parts. They are the four essentials of salvation. If any one of the four is missing from your experience, then it will be impossible for you It) go in the rapture. The four essentials of salvation are as follows:
1. Faith
2. Repentance
3. Baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins
4. Receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking with tongues

ACTS 2:38, THE ONLY WAY
Acts 2:38 is given as the plan of salvation for our dispensation of time. Do you want to go in the rapture? Acts 2:38 states, "Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." No other plan of salvation is given for our dispensation of time.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! YOU MUST OBEY THE PLAN OF SALVATION TO GO IN THE RAPTURE!

FAITH, THE FIRST STEP IN THE PLAN OF SALVATION
Faith is the first step of salvation. No person above the age of accountability can be saved and go in the rapture unless they place their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. John 3:16, "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Faith is the vehicle that will carry you on to obey the complete plan of salvation. It is your starting point, however, this does not relieve you to neglect the other commandments of the Lord.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING!
YOU MUST PLACE YOUR FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO GO IN THE RAPTURE!

REPENTANCE, THE SECOND STEP OF THE PLAN OF SALVATION
Repentance is the second step of the plan of salvation. It is turning away from sin and returning to God. You must ask for forgiveness of the sins you committed in the past and promise not to do them again. Repentance is a changed attitude toward sin. Ii is prayer at the altar and action in life's daily walk. In Acts 11:18 the writer said. "Then hath God also to the Gentiles granted repentance unto life." Everybody is required to repent to go in the rapture. Sin will never enter into Heaven. Jesus' first sermon after his baptism and testing in the wilderness was on repentance. Matthew 4:17 states, "From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say. Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Acts 17:30 reaffirms the necessity to repent. "In times past God winked at ignorance, but now commands all men to repent.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING!
YOU MUST REPENT OF YOUR SINS AND TURN AWAY FROM THEM OR YOU CANNOT GO IN THE RAPTURE!

BAPTISM, THE THIRD STEP IN THE PLAN OF SALVATION
Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ is required to go in the rapture. Jesus said in Mark 16:16. "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned." Luke testified that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name (Jesus) among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem." It was in Jerusalem that Peter preached a message which included baptism in the name of Jesus Christ.

THE CHURCH BEGAN WITH BAPTISM IN JESUS NAME
One hundred and twenty people, including eleven of the original apostles and the mother of Jesus, obeyed the command of the Lord to go into Jerusalem to be endued with power from on high. When the day of Pentecost arrived. Peter preached a convicting message. The people asked him, "What must we do?" Peter commanded them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins. (Acts 2:38)

EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE BEING BAPTIZED IN JESUS NAME
Philip went down to Samaria and preached. The Samaritans were baptized in the name of Jesus. Acts 8:16 says, "For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus." Peter commanded the Gentile converts to he baptized in the name of Jesus. "And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord." (Acts 10:48) Paul baptized the followers of John the Baptist in the name of Jesus. "When they heard this. they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus." (Acts 19)

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE NAME OF JESUS IN BAPTISM
The use of the name of Jesus is of utmost importance in baptism. Acts 4:12 states, "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." The Bible says. "Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus." The most common expression by the minister when a person is baptized in the name of Jesus is: "I now baptize you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins." There is no remission of sins unless you are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING!
YOU MUST BE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST TO GO IN THE RAPTURE!
The baptism of the Holy Ghost, with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues, is absolutely essential for salvation. Nobody will go in the rapture without it.

The baptism of the Holy Ghost will give you power to go in the rapture.
FIVE STEPS TO RECEIVING THE HOLY GHOST

1. Place your faith in Jesus Christ.
2. Repent of all of your sins.
3. Pray audibly.
4. Yield yourself to the Spirit of God
5. Allow your tongue to speak with other tongues.

JOEL'S PROPHECY OF THE HOLY GHOST EXPERIENCE
The prophet Joel gave a prophecy concerning the out-pouring of the Holy Ghost. Joel 2:28 informs us "And it shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh and your sons and daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions." Isaiah also spoke of the experience. "For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people."

THE DAY OF PENTECOST
The first record that we have of the Holy Ghost being poured out is found in Acts 2:1-4. "And when the day of Pentecost was fully come. they were all in one accord, in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them,' and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."

THIS IS YOUR WARNING!

YOU ARE REQUIRED TO RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY GHOST TO GO IN THE RAPTURE!

The Warning: Chapter 1

JESUS IS COMING!
THE WARNING
By: John L. Willhoite

Matthew 25:6, "And at midnight there was a cry made. Behold the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him." The last day warning is now going out to the Church. It is a warning of the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ in the air. The warning is being given to awaken the Church. Preparations for the coming of the Lord must be made without delay. Listen to the warning as it rings loud and clear. Jesus is coming sooner than the Church expects.

THE HOPE OF THE CHURCH
The second corning of Jesus Christ and the rapture of all true Christians are the hope of the Church. The rapture is not death. It is not immortality. It is the resurrection from the dead and glorification with Jesus Christ. The word "rapture" comes from the Latin word "rapio" meaning "to carry off. It means a literal carrying away of the true Christians from the earth to the New Jerusalem. 1 Thessalonians 4:17 is where Paul explains that "We which are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet Christ in the air." This hope is set before us again and again in the New Testament. It is mentioned more than three hundred times. The repeated mention of the rapture experience should reveal the importance of the event.

THE SECOND COMING WILL BE A VISIBLE COMING
When we speak of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the rapture of all true Christians, we refer to His personal and visible reappearing on this earth. Jesus said. "They shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory." (Matthew 24:30) The angels could not have been wrong when they addressed the disciples on Mount Olive after the ascension of our Lord. They said, "This same Jesus shall so come again in like manner as ye have seen him go into Heaven."
Jesus was caught away in a body. He shall return in a body. Man saw Him go up and man shall see him come down. He went up in the clouds. He shall come down from the clouds. Remember. it is stressed in the Bible that He shall come in "like manner" as he left.

THE SECOND COMING IS A LITERAL EVENT
The coming of the Lord will be a literal event. Paul says in I Thessalonians 4:16. "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:" This means the Lord is coming back in a literal physical coming. John reinforced this when he said in Revelation 1:7, "Behold. He cometh with clouds', and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him." Jesus is coming back to the earth. Can anything be plainer?

WHEN WILL THE LORD COME AGAIN?
When will Jesus come back to the earth in bodily form to take his Church away? Nobody knows the exact day nor hour, of the glorious appearing of the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Matthew 24:36 states, "For of that day and hour knoweth no man. No, not the angels of heaven, but my father only. "There have been those who attempted to set dates and fix times and seasons for the coming of the Lord. This brought despair in the hearts of the persons who believed these reports. Satan has sought to dishonour the true doctrine of the Second Coming of Christ. Behold the cunning of Satan. He inspires the date-setters to set the exact date. When it doesn't happen as they predicted. faith disappears from the minds of those who believe these lies.

THE CHURCH WILL KNOW THE APPROXIMATE TIME OF HIS COMING
The Church does not know the exact day nor hour, of the coming of the Lord, however, God has made it plain that certain signs and a definite warning would be visible in the last days. These signs and the ultimate warning, "Behold the bridegroom cometh," will reveal to the Church the approximate time of the appearing of the Lord in the clouds. Matthew 24:37 says, "But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Noah knew of the approximate time of the coming of the flood. Matthew 24:38 reveals that Noah entered into the Ark. God revealed to Noah the approximate time when it would began to rain or he would not have entered into the Ark when he did. "Noah moved with fear, built an ark to the saving of his household."

SINNERS WILL KNOW OF THE COMING OF THE LORD AFTER IT TAKES PLACE
Jesus said, "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come." To "watch" means to "expect" something to happen. The Church must be in daily expectancy of his return. The Church will remain in a state of perfection because of this expectancy. Jesus stimulates us to holy living so we will not be ashamed before him when he returns. The Bible says. "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many: and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." Luke speaks of being ready in Luke 12:40. "He ye therefore ready also for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not."

THE MIDNIGHT CRY
Matthew 25:6 speaks of the midnight cry of "l3ehold the bridegroom cometh". This is a definite warning that will he given shortly before the time of the Lord's coming. A strong simple message of his appearing will strike the Church with a heavy blow. Noah was warned of God. The Church is being warned as Noah was warned. The Lord is coming back for a bride who has made herself ready. It is time for God to give the Church a shock wave to awaken her.

THE DISCIPLES ASKED FOR ONE SIGN OF THE COMING OF THE LORD
In Matthew 24: 3, the disciples asked Jesus to tell them what sign they should look for that indicated the coming of the Lord was near. The disciples did not ask for many signs. The word sign" used in this verse did not have an "S" on the end of it. If they had asked for the revelation of more than one sign, the word "sign" would have been plural. They only asked for one conclusive sign.

SIGNS OF THE END-TIME
Jesus said, "Take heed that no man deceive you." Deceive you about what? Deceive you about the Second Coming of the Lord. He said. "For many shall come in my name saying. I am Christ; and shall deceive many." Jesus continued, "For ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass: but the end is not vet." Jesus mentioned these events and yet he said we are not to worry about them. They are not the signs that indicate His second coming.

THE TRUE SIGN OF THE COMING OF THE LORD
The sign which the disciples were asking for was not mentioned until Matthew 24:14. "And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations: and then shall the end come." The true sign of the imminent return of Jesus Christ is the sudden preaching of the gospel to the whole world.

THE SUDDENNESS OF THE EVENT
The coming of the Lord will not be a prolonged event. It will happen suddenly and will be over in a matter of moments. Jesus compared his coming to lightning. Matthew 24:27, "For as the lightning cometh out of the east and shineth even unto the west: so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Lightning flashes, strikes, and is finished suddenly in a fraction of a second. All preparations must be made in advance.

THIS IS YOUR WARNING! JESUS IS COMING SOON
