Next Lesson: Could We Be Earth’s Final Generation?

What is it that you fear the most?   Destructive storms? Earthquakes? Disease? Acts of violence?   In the next lesson, you will discover that Jesus Christ and others in the Bible declared that there would be an upsurge in many of these types of tragedies in the days just before He would return to earth a second time.   Anyone who watches the news fairly regularly can already see that there has been an upsurge, even within the last 10 years.   In Lesson 3, you will see, that as time on earth draws to a close, God will be removing His protective hand from preventing tragedy because people are asleep to the knowledge that Christ's coming is very soon!
