Over some decades Garner Ted Armstrong travelled throughout the United States of America and to other countries, including Australia (early 1990's and in 2003), delivering sermons directed at raising the public's awareness of where we are now in Bible prophecy as we near the end of this age and the return of Jesus Christ.
This sermon was one of those many, many hundreds and even thousands of sermons, delivered with inspired insight and foresight of world conditions at the time (not so long ago), and in a broad sweep, saying how the general direction of world conditions - political, economic, social - would continue to deteriorate, leading to a climax that would demand the return of Christ. Or as Christ Himself said (Matt. 24:22) "And except those days should be shortened there should no flesh be saved (alive)". Christ went on to say (same verse) "but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened."
The whole of Matthew 24 is Christ's answer to His disciples question (verse 3) "....tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world (end of the age or epoch)".
We are living in that time. Garner Ted Armstrong preached about it tirelessly for decades. He knew that Christ had also said (verse 14) "And this gospel (good news) of the Kingdom (on this earth) shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come."
The world has been sold a false "gospel" about going to heaven or an ever burning hell when you die. A sugar coated bitter gospel that includes dozens of false teachings not found in the Bible. The true gospel, the one Christ actually gave to His disciples and preached is quite different. And the ending is a far better one - for almost all except the incorrigibly wicked.
Take the time to hear about that Gospel in this sermon.
