THE UNITED STATES AND BRITIAN IN PROPHECY
by Herbert W. Armstrong
A staggering turn in world events is due to erupt in the next few years.
It will involve violently the United States, Britain, Western Europe,
the Middle East. It's already rather late for the free world
to come awake to the real meaning behind current world events!
Why do not the world's leaders see what is coming?
Why are the world's best minds unseeing - the heads of state, scientists, educators,
editors,news analysts, bankers, industrialists, leaders in business and commerce?
They are totally unaware! Why?
Because they have been falsely educated and deceived into closing their minds to the
great causes behind world events and trends.
This world has been falsely educated to ignore causes and deal with effects!
Yet all the world's problems and ills are simply a matter of cause and effect.
There is a cause that has produced strife and war; poverty, wretchedness, inequality;
crime, disease, mental ills. But the leaders do not know!
World Explosion to Erupt
The world's leaders are the
educated of the world. But they were not educated in BASIC TRUTHS -
the foundations of right knowledge.
The most necessary knowledge is not being taught!
They do not know WHAT man is - or WHY!
They know nothing of the purpose or meaning of life!
They were taught to distinguish the true values from the false.
They did not learn the real causes - the way to peace, to happiness, to universal
abundance; nor the causes of war, unhappiness, inequality, world chaos.
They know nothing of the purpose being worked outhere below.
Consequently, they guide humanity on a course in conflictwith that purpose,
wreaking havoc upon a distressed, suffering, unhappy mankind.
Lacking knowledge of the way to peace, the world does not have peace.
Leaders talk of peace; they profess to work for peace; they cry out for peace -
while they give approval and blind acceptance to the way that produces war!
This world has simply been going the wrong way!
This world is giving assent to, and conferring civilization's acceptance on,
THE WAYS that are the CAUSES of all the world'sills.
And now we are fast approaching the final grand smash explosion that is going to
stagger the mind of man beyond the bounds of sanity.
Forces are at work today on plans, programs, conspiracies, movements that soon
will erupt into a world explosion of violence and chaos such as never happened
before, and never will again.
Men today are tampering with forces of nature they lack the prudence, knowledge,
ability and wisdom to control.
In this folly of educated ignorance, it has become fashionable today and
intellectually titillating to ignore the great basic cause of all things;
the fact of the purpose being worked out here below, and the master plan
for its working out; the invisible but Supreme Power now soon to intervene
and drastically alter the course of history - before mankind blasts itself
out of existence.
Unreal though it may seem to those steeped in modern
educational deceptions, some 2,500 years ago the Supreme Power of the universe
inspired a man named Isaiah to quote Him, saying: "I am God, and there is none like me,
declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet
done, saying, My counsel shall stand"(Isa. 46:9-10).
The great world powers are formulating their policies- laying their plans.
But the next few years will see astounding events explode in a manner very different
than the nations plan!
Never a Miss
Because there is the great God who says: "The Eternal wrecks the
purposes of pagans, he brings to nothing what the nations plan; but the Eternal's
purpose stands for ever, and what he plans will last from age to age. . .
The Eternal looks from heaven, beholding all mankind; from where he sits,
he scans all who inhabit the world; he who alone made their minds,
he notes all they do" (Ps. 33:10-15, Moffatt translation).
This same Eternal God said: "To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal?
saith the Holy One.
Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things. . ."
And again: "Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the
small dust of the balance. . . . All nations before him are as nothing.. ."
(Isa. 40:25-26, 15, 17).
Through His inspired prophets, the great God caused to be written, some 2,500 years ago,
and preserved in writing to our time prophecies filling approximately a third of the
In them, He named every city of consequence of that time on earth - and also every
And He foretold precisely what would, through the years, happen to every city and
In every instance the prophecies came to pass!
What was prophesied HAPPENED to Babylon, to Tyre, Sidon, Ashkelon, Ashdod,
Ekron; to Egypt, Assyria, Chaldea, Persia, Greece and Rome.
There has not been a miss!
Those prophecies were accurate.
And now, in other prophecies, the same supreme God has foretold precisely what is going to happen to the United States,the British nations, Western Europe, the Middle East, Russia!
Best Minds - Total Ignorance
Yet the best minds in the world are in total ignorance of the unprecedented cataclysm that is about to strike.
And why have these prophecies not been understood or believed?
Because the vital KEY that unlocks prophecy to our understanding had been lost.
That key is the identity of the United States and the British peoples in biblical prophecy.
That key has been found!
We present it to those whose unprejudiced eyes are willing to see.
The events prophesied to strike the American and British peoples in the next few years
God says: "Surely the Lord Eternal will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto
his servants the prophets" (Amos 3:7).
These colossal world events, shrinking the first two World Wars into insignificance,
WILL COME, but not until the warning has been made available for those whose eyes are
willing to see.
