The Gospels – The Gospel According to Matthew
Signs of the End Times
Matthew 24:3-8 As he sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the close of the age?” (4) And Jesus answered them, “Take heed that no one leads you astray. (5) For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and they will lead many astray. (6) And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. (7) For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places: (8) all this is but the beginning of the birth-pangs.
The signs of the beginning of the Judgment of God. As explained in the book “In the Light of Truth”: The Grail Message by Abd-ru-shin, the Judgment is characterized by an immense influx of the Radiation of God into the entire Creation. This Radiation affects everything and brings movement into everything. That which had hitherto been dormant and inactive is brought to life. That in human beings which they had tried to hide from others or perhaps unaware of themselves will show itself. All faults and weaknesses will show themselves in the worst possible manner for all to see.
This will lead to an unrestrained raging that will lead to great destruction. False prophets will arise to try to explain what they themselves do not understand to people. People will follow these people out of fear. They will however not be able to offer the peace of mind that people desire. This is the proof that indeed they are nothing but false prophets. The people themselves will recognize them as such.
Natural disasters are due to the fact that over millennia we human beings through our wrong volitions have led the development of the natural environment in the wrong direction. Through the influx of the Power of God, however, all that has been wrongly led will be torn apart and replaced by what should have been.
Matthew 24:9-14 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. (10) And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. (11) And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. (12) And because wickedness is multiplied, most men’s love will grow cold. (13) But he who endures to the end will be saved. (14) And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.
Because of the condition described above through the entrance in an unprecedented way of the Power of God into Creation, the faults and all the evil within human beings will come out. Human beings, under this immense pressure will act out their wickedness. The effect on the environment and on other people is not difficult to imagine.
Obviously Jesus here was not referring to the teachings of the present day churches which have more or less been made earthly. He was talking about the teaching of His true Word. His Word without the added interpretations of anyone. His Word restored to Its original form. His Word returned to Its original luster. It is this new Word which is the same as Jesus’ Word that will now be preached at the end time. We have already touched upon this earlier.
The Word of Jesus in Its form will be revealed again in all Its vitality so that for the last time those who had been held back by the additions which over the centuries had covered the true Word may save themselves. This new Word as was mentioned earlier will be preached just before the end. There will therefore be very little time for us to make up our minds as to which direction to take. Hesitation is tantamount to a rejection. We should therefore be on the look out for this new Word.
