  • There would be weapons that could destroy the world - Mark 13:20; Revelation 6:8 & Revelation 9:18. Incredibly, this prophecy was written in the days of spears and arrows, yet today it is true. It is estimated that the combined nuclear arsenals of the USA and Russia could kill every living thing on earth 6 times over. Please see Here.

  • The rise and fall of nations down through the ages to our strife-torn, fear-gripped age and the end of the world is all summed up in a dream given by God to the monarch of ancient Babylon, king Nebuchadnezzar. Please see Daniel 2:28-45.

6. The stone cut out without hands(God destroys the wicked with) KINGDOM OF JESUS CHRIST (2ND COMING) ANYTIME NOW (Daniel 2:44-45; Revelation 22:7 & Revelation 1:7).

     On all the roads leading to a city, there are sign boards telling us how near we are to the city. As we travel along, we read the sings: 50 miles, 40, 30, and so on. Jesus Christ also has given signs that tell us when we are getting near to the end of the world. (Mathew 24; Mark 13; Luke 21; 2 Thessalonians 2:5-10; John 14:1-3; 2 Timothy 3:1-5 & Acts 17:30-31).

As we compare His warning signals with the current state of the world in Mathew 24:1-51, Mark 13:1-37 & Luke 21:1-36, it is clear that we are living in the end of time.

  • DECEIVED (Matthew 24:5): Frauds, hoaxes and deceit is more or less the trend of the day. Husbands and their wives cheat each other. Parents deceive children, siblings cheat each other. People do not even know which day is the Sabbath as they have been deceived. The real Sabbath is a holy day – blessed, sanctified, hallowed and covenanted by God. Some have claimed to be Jesus Christ who has come back. See - Revelation 1:7 and

Deceived - GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT: Speaking in Tongues
Please study Acts 2, 1 Corinthians chapters 12, 13 & 14:


Acts 2: let’s see verse by verse -
The disciples were all with one accord in one place. 
2. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as rushing mighty wind and it filled the house.
3. And there appeared cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4. They were filled with the Holy Ghost and began to speak in tongues the Spirit gave them. 
5. There were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
6. Multitude came, were confounded, every man heard them speak in his own language.
7. All were amazed and marveled at one another, are not all these which speak Galileans?
8. And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
9-11. People hear 12 disciples speak 16 languages in own tongues of wonderful works of God. 
12-15. Peter, standing up with the 11, lifted up his voice, and said, these are not drunkards.
16-18. I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams.

Speaking with tongues is a sign for unbelievers, not believers. Prophesying is not for them that believe not, but for them which believe. Please see 1 Corinthians 14:22 & Acts 2

Also notice the manifestation of the Holy Sprit in Acts 2 – Prophecy, Visions & Dreams.

He that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret. - 1 Corinthians 14:13.
If therefore the whole church be come together into one place and all speak with tongues, and there come in those that are unlearned, or unbelievers, will they not say that ye are mad?   – 1 Corinthians 14:23.
