How the Seven Mysteries Were Revealed
that definition. They worship not the God who created
them, but gods which
they
have created. Religion
involves one's conduct, one's principles, one's way of life
and one's concept of the hereafter.
The real CAUSES of all this world's religious
confusion-and all its evils-are revealed in SEVEN BASIC
MYSTERIES that decry this babylon of religious confusion
and the resulting world chaos!
But now God's time has come! He now sends a voice
to cry out with amplified world-covering power
to
reveal
the
way out
of this senseless madness, into the world of
PEACE and righteousness that soon
shall
grip the earth!
In the book of Isaiah is a "Now" prophecy: "The
voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the
way of the Lord.... lift up thy voice with strength; lift it
up, be not afraid; say . . . Behold, the Lord God will
come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him:
behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him"
(Isa. 40:3, 9-10).
That voice now cries out!
The prophet Malachi confirmed this: "Behold, I
will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way
before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly
come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant,
whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the
Lord of hosts" (Mal. 3:1).
The Elijah to Come
Both of these prophecies have a dual application. First,
they refer to John the Baptist, who prepared the way
before Jesus' human ministry more than 1,900 years ago.
BuT, as a prototype, or forerunner, these prophecies
foretell one to prepare the way before Christ's Second
Coming as the King of kings and Lord of lords to RULE
over ALL NATIONS!
