THE INCREDIBLE HUMAN POTENTIAL

ing merely TO GET salvation FOR THE SELF! That is NOT God's
WAY!
The GLORY on Beyond!
Happily, the 6,000-year sentence on Adam's world - being
cut off
from God, is due to END in our present living generation.
This world, now- still Satan's world except for God's CHURCH–
is fast plunging into the supreme CRISIS ofworld tribulation. But it
is said to be "darkest just before dawn!"
Then, SUDDENLY, when least expected by the "cut-off world,"
Jesus Christ will come in supreme supernatural POWER AND
GLORY!
Y
es, "at such an hour as ye think not," said Jesus.
His CHURCH will have been made ready!
"For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we
which are alive and remain unto the comin_g of the Lord shall not
[precede] them that are asleep [dead). For the Lord himself shall
descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the arch–
angel, 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"
(1
Thes. 4: 15-17). He is
coming to RULE ALL THE EARTH!
Then shall be fulfilled Revelation 19:6-7: the mighty voice of
the archangel shouting, "ALLELUJA! for the Lord God omnipotent
reigneth. Let us be glad and rejoice! ..." The Church, resurrected
IN GLORY, shall reign with Christ a thousand years!
Satan will be banished! God will call ALL LIVING to His sal–
vation. After the millennium shall come the ÜREAT WHITE
THRONE JUDGMENT (Rev. 20: 11-12) when all who had been cut
off from God for 6,000 years shall be resurrected MORTAL- and
all called to God's salvation and eternallife!
Then, the glorious eternity beyond - all saints then immor–
tal,
inheriting
the transcendent human potential - RENEWING THE
FACE OF ALL DECAYED PLANETS, FINISHING THE GLORIOUS BEAU–
TIFUL CREATION THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE ENDLESS UNIVERSE- in
happiness, joy and GLORY!
