Some people say HIS Coming is hundreds of years away, but I DON’T believe that.
The hour is here; there’s nothing left for us but the coming of the Lord Jesus.
I believe it’ll be in this generation because Israel’s a nation & Jesus said THAT GENERATION WON’T PASS till all things be fulfilled.
Remember that God walled His city with the Blood Jesus & put a tower for the WATCHMAN to warn the people of oncoming judgment.
God’s WATCHMAN is an eagle; a prophet that sees oncoming judgment & boldly warns the people. God’s prophets aren’t blind, wishy-washy preachers! They’re EAGLES!
We hear so much of communism, but it’s waiting for darkness to take over the church. Then it’ll strike.
25︎ “And there will be STRANGE SIGNS in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the NATIONS WILL BE IN TURMOIL, perplexed by the ROARING SEAS and STRANGE TIDES.
26︎People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
27︎Then EVERYONE WILL SEE THE SON OF MAN COMING ON A CLOUD with power and great glory.
28︎So when all these things begin to happen, STAND and LOOK UP, for YOUR SALVATION IS NEAR!”
29︎Then he gave them this illustration: “Look at the fig tree, and all the trees.
30︎When the leaves come out, you know without being told that summer is near.
31︎In the same way, WHEN YOU SEE ALL THESE THINGS TAKING PLACE, YOU CAN KNOW THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD IS NEAR.
32︎I tell you the truth, THIS GENERATION WILL NOT PASS AWAY until all these things have taken place.
33︎Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
34︎“Watch out! Don’t let your hearts be dulled by carousing and drunkenness, and by THE WORRIES OF THIS LIFE. Don’t let that day catch you unaware,
35︎For it will come as a trap on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.
36︎Keep alert at all times. And pray that you might be strong enough to escape these coming horrors AND STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN.”

W M B ~ Now, I want you to notice, oh, in the hour of THIS WATCHMAN had warned and had told the people of the ONCOMING JUDGMENT, but they laughed at him and made fun of him.
And then we see in the Scriptures, that when a city was built, the first thing was built was the protection of that city, which was the wall.
And then to be sure that the city was safeguarded, they had a TOWER built way HIGH ON THE WALL, and A WATCHMAN WAS IN THAT TOWER DAY AND NIGHT.
Twenty-four hours around he watched east, north, west, and south. BECAUSE HE’S HIGHER THAN THE REST OF THE PEOPLE he can see off.
His duty is to WARN THE PEOPLE when he could see ONCOMING JUDGMENT, armies approaching, spies slipping up, anything coming on. No matter what it was, he reported it back to the city if he was a good watchman.
I want to say something here. And I hope you catch it in the right way. Do you mean to tell me that they would put a nearsighted watchman in that tower when the life of the city depended on him?
Would he…Would they put a—a man in there that was half blind?
CERTAINLY NOT. It would be THE BEST SIGHTED MAN they could find they’d put in there.
God also, when He builds His city, He—His church, He WALLED IT WITH THE BLOOD OF HIS OWN SON, Jesus Christ.
And HE PUT A TOWER in it. And in this tower…
THE BIBLE LIKENS HIS PROPHETS TO BEING EAGLES. Now, a eagle can soar higher than any other bird.
If another bird tries to follow an eagle, he’d die, because he—he—the eagle’s made special, and he can go so high if the hawk trying to follow him, the hawk would disintegrate in the air.
He just couldn’t follow him; his feathers would fall out; he’d come apart. But the eagle is a special bird. Now, what good would it do him to go way up there in the air unless he could see way off?
He’d be blind himself. But see, nature has provided the eagle with an eye that he can see as high till you can hardly see the eagle yourself: some of them fourteen feet across their wings.
You can hardly see the eagle with your eye. But he can see any little moving object on the ground. Now, GOD LIKENED HIS PROPHETS, His preachers, to EAGLES. He calls Himself, “Jehovah Eagle.” He’s a Eagle Himself.
Now, God has set, not man, God has set in the church first is—or apostles, secondary, prophets, teachers, pastors and so forth. GOD SET THEM IN THE CHURCH. IF GOD PUT THEM IN THERE, THEY’RE QUALIFIED FOR THE JOB.
God wouldn’t put a man in a tower, in a position like that that said, “The days of miracles is past.”
God would not put a man into position like that to be a prophet or a seer that would say that Jesus Christ isn’t the same yesterday, today, and forever, when the Bible declares Him to be.
God would not put a man in a tower there, that would preach a wishy-washy Gospel and not tell the truth and warn the people of the wrath that is to come.
He’d put a man in there that would be bold, that would have the—a spirit that seen the oncoming judgment; and regardless of what the people said, he’d warn them anyhow, cry out against it.
He doesn’t put blind prophets in His tower. He puts prophets, preachers who foresees the coming judgment and warns the people to flee.
That’s the same thing that took place here. The—the tower man had warned the people all day long; he says, “I see the dust.”
“Why” they said, “nothing, I don’t see no dust.”
“Why, I know there’s approaching army.” And they went right on just the same. That’s the way they’re doing, the same thing today.
Any man could read a newspaper, if he’s got any spiritual discernment about him at all, can see that we’re at the end.
Some people go out and say, “Oh, that might be a thousand years from today.” I don’t believe that.
I believe this generation will see the coming of the Lord Jesus. If this generation doesn’t do it, I want to preach to the young people that they’ll be looking for it in their generation.
I believe it’ll be in this generation, ’cause the fig tree’s putting forth its buds yonder, and Jesus said, “That generation will not pass till all things be fulfilled.”
Israel’s restored, herself; she’s a nation. All the signs and wonders that was to take place in the last days, it’s here.
We must cry out from the tower, from the high place that God places you in, and warn the people. But they—seem like they just go dumbly right on, as they did in that time.
Then when they was all in there, dancing and going on like a modern Pearl Harbor, when they were dancing and stripping young ladies of their clothes, and running them through the streets, and so forth, all of a sudden there was an attack.
The enemy watches for NIGHTTIME to come. He likes to come in the night. The great raids in our armies today is at NIGHTTIME. And that’s what…
You talk of communism. Communism’s laying for one thing. We hear so much about it today. Communism’s wanting one thing, the nation’s honeycombed with it, but it’s waiting for what little spiritual we have got to die out, till it gets darkness in the church.
That’s the only way it can strike. Let the Americans who claim to be Christians rise to their feet in the Name of the Lord, call out, communism would have no place. But we weave right into it, and our churches is even full of it, sure, everywhere.
The whole thing’s polluted; the whole body’s polluted. There’s only one sound thing and only one Foundation, that’s Jesus Christ. On Jesus Christ is the only Rock of salvation that I know of. The only way of escape is through Jesus Christ. He is the One.
20 Now, when we see the hour’s approaching, it’s a strange thing, all of a sudden they were caught without warning, seemingly. They caught without taking warning.
The watchman had warned, and had warned, and had warned, and they’d stuck their fingers in their ears and walked around in their own lusts.
All of a sudden when it got dark, the aliens had slipped around like that, in a moment they were slaughtered and gone.
Like Belteshazzar’s big tea party or whiskey party, he had down there, and Pearl Harbor and many other great drunken sprees we’ve had when the enemies broke in.
We’re not drunk…You don’t have to be drunk upon wine; the only thing you have to be drunk on tonight is the things of the world.
The church is becoming drunk on the things of the world. They’re bringing the things of the world right in the church: Bunco parties, card games, dancing, even teaching rock-and-roll in YMCAs and in churches. That’s a disgrace.
I may go down in history yet, if there is a history, as a fanatic, as a crank; but at the day of the judgment I can stand and say I warned the people of the wrath that is to come.
And it’s at your hand. It could happen at any time. You see how close the world is to collapsing into the hands of the atomic bombs. But yet the Church is to be gone before that takes place. How close is the coming of the Lord?
