ISON: The "Sign" of deliverance


The “sign” of deliverance…

                                                                                                                                                            By Pastor F. M. Riley
                                                                                                                                                     September 9, 2013

     “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
     Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new?  it hath been already of old time, which was before us,” Ecclesiastes 1:9-10.  [See also Ecclesiastes 3:15].

     “And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven,” Luke 21:11.

     “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also,” John 14:3.

     “And I turned to see the voice that spake with me.  And being turned I saw seven golden lampstands;
     And in the midst of the seven lampstands one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
     His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire;
     And His feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters,” Revelation 1:12-15. 

     The expectation of the coming of the Lord to resurrect and rapture His New Covenant believers to glory is at a fever pitch today.  And why shouldn’t it be?  For the past several years there has been one “sign” after another, clearly predicted in the Scriptures to occur during “the last days,” which has captured the attention of believers.  Currently the eyes of the whole world, and especially God’s people, are centered upon Damascus, Syria and the possible fulfillment of Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17.  It appears that Damascus could be destroyed at any minute and the whole Middle East break out into a terrible war.   Multitudes of believers were expecting the Lord to come and rapture His people to glory on Rosh Ha-Shanah this year.   
     Rosh Ha-Shanah 2013, has now come and gone and the Lord Jesus has not returned.  It ought to be crystal clear to any reader that Rosh Ha-Shanah this year was not the “date” of the rapture. 
     So what is the “date” of the rapture?   I haven’t the slightest idea!  The Lord never told me or any others of His children to search for “a date.”  What He told us was to “watch and pray,” and so much the more as we see the “signs” coming to pass that have been predicted in His Word which are to precede His return.  We have certainly seen many such predicted “signs” over the past several years.  So much so that the major “sign” now appearing in the heavens has been almost totally overlooked or ignored. 
     And that is the subject of this study…..  
A Brief Background

     For many years now we have seen one Comet after another coming into our solar system.  How many readers remember Comet Kohoutek which showed up in 1973?   The Jewish people
[and others] have long believed that great comets are an omen announcing coming evil or  trouble; that they appear when some mighty King or ruler is going to die or be deposed, or when some mighty nation is going to be brought down. 1973 proved to be one of the most fascinating years in modern history, with Comet Kohoutek being the heavenly announcer….. 
     [1]  1973 was the year that Comet Kohoutek was visible in the night sky throughout nearly the entire year. 
     [2]  Also during 1973 the Greater Jerusalem Synagogue was completed and dedicated, giving the Jewish people their first central place of worship since their Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D.
     [3] 1973 was the year that OPEC came into existence, allowing the member nations to immediately raise the price of oil on the world market and creating the first gasoline shortages in the U.S. and other countries of the world. 
     [4]  1973 was the year that the Club of Rome met and on a world map literally divided the entire world into “ten kingdoms.”  They and their followers have been working ever since then to bring their division of the whole world into “ten kingdoms” to reality.
     [5]  During 1973 all ten leaders of the NATO Alliance nations either died or resigned their positions in disgrace.  This was a great blow to the prestige of the United States of America who had been the driving force behind organizing NATO.
     [6]   It was during 1973 that the Supreme Court of the United States of America “legalized” the callous coldblooded murder of the innocent unborn in Roe vs Wade.  This began the slaughter of unborn babies in this country, and since the U.S. was the “moral example” for all the nations of the world, it threw the door wide open for other nations to follow the example of this country.  Since that time millions of innocent unborn babies have been slaughtered in this country and other countries all over the world. 
     [7]  It was during 1973 that a surprise attack was launched against Israel on Yom Kippur, the most sacred holy day of the year on their sacred calendar.  This war continued right on into 1974 before the Lord God finally gave Israel victory.  Read Psalm 73 and 74. 
     [8]  1973 was the year that the Karakoram Highway was completed through the Himalayan mountains, making it possible for the first time in recorded history for an army to move swiftly through the Himalayas in a matter of hours instead of taking weeks to go through as in past centuries.  Read Revelation 9:13-21. 
     [9]  1973 was also the year that a huge hydroelectric dam was completed across the Euphrates River, making it possible to close the dam and divert the water, and thereby dry up the Euphrates for whatever length of time deemed necessary.   The only other time previously in human history that the mighty Euphrates had been dammed was by the armies of Cyrus on the night that Belshazzar, the king of Babylon was killed, and the Babylonian Empire was conquered by Media-Persia.  Read Daniel 5.
     [10]  According to those who keep the financial records of the nations of the world, it was on January 11, 1973 that the economy of the United States of America reached a peak.  Since that time the U.S. economy has been gradually declining.  Today it is declining at an almost breakneck speed, which will SOON lead to a total collapse of the American economic system. 
     [11]  In 1973 there were seven eclipses which occurred in the heavens.  There had not been that many eclipses previously since 1917, the year Jerusalem and the holy land was delivered out of the hands of the Ottoman Turks. 

The Forty Years of Testing

     It is more than “coincidence” that human history is divided in the inspired Word into 40 year periods of time.  This truth is glaringly seen in the history of Israel.  These 40 year periods are periods of trial or testing to see what the people being tested will do in relation to the Lord God of Heaven.  Now how many years has it been from 1973 to 2013?  Well…???
     I think it is safe to assume from this that 1973 introduced the whole world into the final 40 year period of testing before humanity is ushered into the judgments of the terrible Tribulation
period.  Mankind was graciously given 40 years to repent and turn back to God, and mankind in every nation on earth has miserably failed to do so, in spite of many repeated warnings from God sent upon the earth over and over again during these past 40 years.  Don’t miss the fact that we are presently living in the final or 40th year of this period of testing.  Hello! 
    How many of our readers remember the appearance of the Shoemaker-Levy Comet in 1994?  This comet was discovered by two Jews, Mr. Shoemaker and Mr. Levy.  Shortly after being discovered this magnificent comet broke up into 21 pieces with each piece following behind the preceding piece across the sky.  This made it appear like a beautiful necklace with 21 sparkling jewels in it stretched out across the night sky.  The first of these 21 pieces began their death plunge into the Planet Jupiter on the Jewish 9th day of Av in 1994.   That particular day is regarded by the Jewish people as “Destruction Day” because of all the terrible things that have happened to the Jews as a people and a nation on that exact day in past history.  It required seven days for all 21 pieces of this comet to make its death plunge into Jupiter. When each piece struck Jupiter, it resulted in a gigantic explosion on that planet.  The scars of those explosions are still visible on Jupiter right to this present day.  Practically the entire world watched this scenario play out on their television screens in 1994.  To say that this comet plunging into Jupiter was not an omen of judgment to come requires a depraved mind in total rebellion against God and the truths of His Word.  The Shoemaker-Levy Comet was…..
     [1]  Discovered by two Jews.
     [2]  The year was 1994.  The numerical digits add up to 23, the Bible number signifying “death and destruction.” 
     [3]  The comet broke up into 21 pieces.  “21” is the Bible number signifying “the 21 judgments of the Tribulation,” or “the exceeding sinfulness of sin.” 
     [4] It required 7 days for all 21 pieces to plunge into the Planet Jupiter.  “7” is the Bible number signifying “completion; to complete; to finish; to fulfill;  to bring to an end.”  Now how long is the seven year Tribulation which will complete or bring to a close God’s wrath and righteous judgment of the wicked and wickedness upon this earth?
     [5]  This comet’s death plunge into Jupiter began on the 9th day of Av on the Jewish calendar, which the Jews have regarded for centuries as “Destruction Day.” 
     Was all of this just “coincidence,” or was Almighty God trying to warn humanity of what was soon to come unless there was genuine repentance and a turning back to God on the part of mankind?  Well…? 
     I am not going to take the time and space to discuss in detail all of the many other “heavenly visitations” that have occurred over these past 40 years since 1973.  There was the Hale-Bopp Comet in 1995, Comet Borrelly in 2001, Comet Wild 2 in 2004, and Comet Tempel 1 in 2005.  Again, it is more than “coincidence” that during the times these comets were appearing in the heavens, the entire weather systems on earth were “out of whack” in relation to what is considered “normal.” During these 40 years there have been massive “earthquakes in divers places,” many volcanoes erupting all over the earth, and many hurricanes and strange storms. And among men on the earth there has been increasing “distress of nations with perplexity.”     No connection, some may say.  Yeah right!  I’ll believe that when donkeys fly!  
     All of these heavenly visitations and other “signs” coming on an ever increasing scale have clearly pointed to the end of this present age.  It is for this reason that hundreds or even thousands of Bible believing Christians all over the world were fervently looking for and expecting the Lord to rapture His people to glory on Rosh Ha-Shanah this year.  But it didn’t
     Why not?  What a joy it is to point out to our readers the one great and final “sign” from heaven which is right now approaching the earth, which clearly indicates the coming of the Lord to resurrect and rapture His New Covenant believers to glory.  Just read on…..
The Opening Chapters of Revelation

     Any careful student of Bible prophecy knows that John was given the inspired prophecies of The Book of Revelation while exiled to the island of Patmos in the Mediterranean Sea.  While there, John stated that he became in the spirit and was transported forward in time to “the day of the Lord,” Revelation 1:10.  While in that state, he heard behind him “a great voice, as of a
Trumpet.”  He turned to see who it was that was speaking to him, and this is what John by divine inspiration explicitly stated, “…And being turned, I saw seven golden lampstands;  And in the midst of the seven lampstands one like unto the Son of man...,” Revelation 1:12-13. The Lord Himself clearly states that the seven lampstands “are the seven churches” in Revelation 1:20.   The Lord, whom John saw and heard, then gave John specific instructions to write what John had seen in the past, what John was seeing at that time, and what John would see about future events, Revelation 1:19.  
     Then in Revelation 2 – 3 the Lord God gave to John the seven letters to be given to the seven churches.  Immediately after the seventh letter to the church at Laodicea was concluded, then John saw a door standing open in Heaven, and the same trumpet sounding voice of the Lord which had spoken to him in Revelation 1 spoke to Him again, saying, “Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter [after the things of the church age], Revelation 4:1. This sets forth a very vivid type of the rapture which occurs right at the end of the church age; this present dispensation of grace.   
    Now dear readers, this is the general outline or order of the opening chapters of Revelation, and it is set forth so plainly and clearly that no reader should deny it.
    [1]  John on Patmos.
    [2]  Became in the spirit.
    [3]  Heard behind him a voice like a trumpet.
    [4]   John turned to see who it was that was speaking to him with a trumpet like voice.
    [5]  When he had turned, John visibly saw Christ in the midst of the seven golden lampstands, or churches, Revelation 1:20.         
    [6]   Then John recorded the letters to the seven churches in chapters two and three, each church letter representing a period of time in church history.
    [7]   When the final church letter had been concluded, then the very next thing John saw was the door open in Heaven and he heard the Lord commanding Him to “Come up hither.”  John was then raptured up into Heaven.    
    This is the outline of events set forth in the inspired Word leading up to John’s rapture to glory, which was a type of the New Covenant believer’s rapture to glory.
    Now why have I labored this point so meticulously?  Because I want our readers to be able to discern what is happening right now in view of this outline set forth in the inspired Word.  And what am I referring to? 
    I am referring to the approach and coming of


into the solar system of the earth.  You haven’t heard about this comet?  Then I suggest you begin learning about it ASAP, for it is going to have an important effect upon the earth and every human being living upon it. 
     Comet Ison was supposedly “discovered” by Russian astronomer, Vitali Nevski, on September
21, 2012.   It is internationally accepted by professional astronomers of the world that any new heavenly body discovered will be named after it’s discoverer.  But Comet I-SON wasn’t!  Instead of being named after the man who supposedly discovered it, it was named using the first letters of Russia’s International Scientific Optical Network; I-S-O-N. 
     Amazing!  There are several things about this so-called “discovery” that are worthy of notice by God’s people.  
     [1]  These atheistic Communists officials were too spiritually dull witted to even notice that their acronym could easily be pronounced I-SON, suggesting that this incoming “Comet” might easily represent or typify the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Hello!
     [2]   It is also an easily documented truth that this Russian astronomer DID NOT “discover” this so-called comet on September 21, 2012.   How do I know this to be true? 
     Three days ago [September 6, 2013] I watched a video of an ABC News Broadcast which was  made by Peter Jennings in the year, 2000.   [Peter Jennings died in 2005]. In that video Peter Jennings reported that astronomers had “discovered” an earthlike planet far out in space at the extreme edge of the solar system which had several moons orbiting it.  Peter Jennings, in his ABC news broadcast made in the year 2000, explicitly reported that the planet and its moons were moving through space inbound toward our solar system, and he also stated that according to astronomers who had calculated the speed of its movement through space, it  would arrive in our solar system in the year, 2013.    It is now 2013 and here comes the planet into our solar system exactly as Jennings said it would on his newscast thirteen years ago.  Hello!
     This makes it glaringly obvious that this planet and its moons were not “discovered” in 2012, but the PTB have known about it for at least the past thirteen years and have kept the news of it under wraps and hidden from the public.  Now turn in your Bible and read Luke 8:17.  Glory!
     But this isn’t the whole truth yet!   According to another report I have received, this earthlike planet with its several moons was featured in a Popular Science magazine article in the late 1950’s.   I have not been able to verify this, but if this report proves to be true, then it is obvious that the PTB have known about this inbound planet and have been carrying on a huge “coverup” of it for the past 50 years or more.  The last time I checked the Lord God was still saying in John 8:44 that Satan is the “father of lies” and liars!   Does this “coverup” give God’s people [true believers] any indication of how much this world system hates our God and our Savior and the truth of His wonderful Word?  Read John 15:18-20.                
     [3]  Scientists and astronomers have been referring to this inbound heavenly body as a “comet” since it was supposedly “discovered” in 2012.   But here again they have been lying.  I-SON is not a comet!  The scientists have referred to it as such simply because, rather than being in a fixed orbit, it is moving through space similar to the way a comet moves.  I-SON is a huge planet, complete with several moons orbiting it.  In other words, it has its own solar system around it.  The planet I-SON is moving into the solar system of earth RIGHT NOW as I write, accompanied by its moons. 
     [4]  I-SON is estimated to be some four times larger than the earth.  It is a red planet thought to be composed of massive amounts of iron ore, possibly even with a magnetic iron core.  As it travels through space, it is shedding huge amounts of red dust from its surface.  This has caused a huge cloud of red dust particles in space being dragged along with I-SON.  It is also accompanied through space by massive amounts of space debris such as rocks and asteroids, much of which will ultimately fall upon the surface of the earth exactly as predicted in the prophecies, Revelation 6:12-14. 8:6-12.
     [5]  Quite significantly, photos of this approaching planet taken months ago show it as a singular object in space.  However, as it has drawn nearer to the Sun in our solar system, the photos now show it as three objects in space.  On each side of it two more objects have appeared which resemble WINGS.  This indicates that this planet is the very same red “winged” planet observed and written about by the ancient Sumerians some 3,500 years ago, and which is also
spoken about in the legends of the Navajo and Hopi Indians here in America.  Hello!
     [6]   I-SON has been a very dark planet, but as it comes into the solar system of our Sun, it is becoming brighter and brighter.   The astronomers anticipate it ultimately being the brightest object in the heavens, estimated to become 15 times brighter than the Sun.  The astronomers who are constantly watching I-SON coming into earth’s solar system believe that it will become so bright it will appear as a second Sun in the sky, and will even be visible during the daylight
hours.   I ask our readers to consider these reports carefully.
     The Sun in our solar system often raises the temperature on the surface of the earth in excess of 100 degrees heat during the summer season.  Now think about a second sun in the sky which is 15 times brighter than our present Sun.  How high will the temperatures reach?  Think about it, and while you are thinking, read again Malachi 4:1-2, “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear My name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in His wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.”
     These Scriptures make it quite plain that the temperatures on earth are going to steadily rise to levels unheard of in past human history.  Further, this coming burning judgment predicted in these Scriptures will be selective.  It will be the unbelieving, Christ rejecting, wicked who are to be burned up.  On the other hand, those who will turn to the Lord in repentance and receive Him by faith as their own personal Savior will be spared, protected, and blessed.   Take heed!    
     In addition to these Scriptures, do our readers remember Peter in his epistle speaking about  “the day of the Lord” [the Tribulation]?  “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away [pass by; fly past] with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”  Hello!  
     [7]   This past Saturday, September 7th, it was reported that I-SON is already in our solar system and is right now moving towards the Planet Mars as I write.  I-SON is classified as a “Sun grazer” planet.  This simply means that it is going to pass very close to the Sun.  Because of its huge size and powerful electro-magnetic field, it will not be “captured” by the Sun.  Rather, it will swing around the Sun and the force of the Sun acting like a sling shot will send it forcefully on its journey back into space, the scientists studying it claiming that after circling around the Sun it will be headed back into space in the general direction of the earth
     Then in the latter part of November [Yes, this year; 2013; two months from now] I-SON will become visible to the naked eye in our night sky.  You will be able to see it for yourself.  Then shortly thereafter, because it is steadily increasing in brightness, it will appear that there are two suns in the sky during the day and I-SON brilliantly displayed during the night.

     I am now going to give our readers  links that those who have computers can click on and get confirmation of everything I have said about I-SON and more information which I am not mentioning in this study.  Click on the following links and indulge yourself to whatever extent satisfies you.  If there are any problems, carefully type these same links into your “search” and they should open up for you.

A Repetition of the Vision of John

     Folks, some 2,000 years ago the beloved Apostle John was given a vision of the Lord Jesus
Christ in the midst of His churches, Revelation 1:12-13.  Immediately after seeing this vision, and then recording in Revelation 2 - 3  the message of Christ to each of His churches, John then saw a door standing open in Heaven and heard the same voice of the Lord God commanding him to “Come up hither,” Revelation 4:1.  John was then raptured up into Heaven to behold and experience its glories.  Why am I reminding our readers of this again?  Because…..
     This past Friday, September 6, 2013, I watched an official NASA video containing several photos of Planet I-SON taken by the Hubble Space Telescope at different times.   One of those photos in particular clearly showed I-SON and all of the moons orbiting the planet.   There it was in all of its glory!  In the photo I-SON could be clearly seen sitting right in the midst of the SEVEN MOONS which orbit the planet.  How many moons?  Not one, not two or three, not eight or ten or more, but exactly SEVEN MOONS.  Each of those seven moons was brightly shining around I-SON, appearing like a lovely diamond necklace around the neck of their Master.  Glory to God!  Hallelujah!  Praise be to the King of glory! 
     Folks, I recognized instantly that a type of the vision that John was given nearly 2,000 years ago is again today being gloriously displayed in the heavens by our gracious Lord God for all humanity to see.  I-SON vividly typifies the Lord Jesus Christ, and the moons around I-SON typify the seven churches.  Remember what Solomon wrote, “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun,” Ecclesiastes 1:9.  What a glorious and merciful final warning from Father God and from our precious Lord Jesus Christ.     
      Remember what our Lord God Himself clearly stated in Luke 21:11, “And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.” 
     Folks, I am not trying to be offensive, but it would take a person “dumber than a rock,” spiritually speaking, not to recognize this glorious type of Christ in the midst of His seven churches being displayed in the heavens above the earth right now while I am writing.   But at the present time it has to be observed through a powerful telescope or powerful binoculars.   However,  in  the  latter  part  of  November I-SON and all of its moons will become visible to the naked eye in our night sky for all of humanity to see for themselves.

Then What Happened?

      Remember that immediately after John had received the vision of Christ in the midst of His churches and had recorded what Christ had to say to His churches in Revelation 2 -3, then the inspired Word explicitly says, “After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will show thee things which must be hereafter,” Revelation 4:1.  John was then “caught up” into Heaven, in an exact type of the pre-tribulation rapture of New Covenant believers.  Glory to God!
      “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump [trumpet] 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.
     Wherefore comfort one another with these words,” 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.  
     O glory to God!  Hallelujah!  Praise the Lord!  Glory to our precious Father God!  and to our wonderful and precious Savior Lord Jesus!   Glory to the Holy Spirit which reveals the truth of God’s Word to God’s believing saints, John 16:12-15.   Praise to the Godhead on high!
     Dear readers, we believers can conclude that our precious Lord and Savior is inbound from Heaven to rapture His New Covenant believers to glory, just as I-SON is inbound into earth’s solar system right now.    The material and spiritual and visible proof of this truth is the final “sign” of His coming which is being displayed in the heavens above the earth right now even as I
write.  This type of the repetition of John’s vision, given some 2,000 years ago, will become visible to the naked eyes of all humanity in the night sky in the latter part of November, just slightly over two months from right now.  Praise the Lord!  

Then when will the Rapture occur?

    In view of all these things, I have already been asked the “date” when the rapture will occur. I haven’t the slightest idea!  John did not record the “date” or even the day of the week that he was caught up into Heaven.   All I know is that shortly after John had been given the vision of Christ in the midst of His seven churches, then John was raptured up to Heaven.  There is no question in my mind that we who are New Covenant believers will also be raptured upwards to glory  shortly after I-SON and its seven moons appear in our night sky for us and all the lost world to see.  Praise the Lord!  Glory to God!
    Since I-SON will become visible in the night sky in late November, then is it possible that the rapture will occur on Hanakkuh?  That Jewish holy day occurs this year on December 13th.  I don’t have the slightest idea?  The Lord Himself explicitly told the Jews, “Therefore be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh,” Matthew 24:44. Since all of the other holy days of the Jews throughout the year will already have past, those who so dogmatically insist that the Lord is coming on a holy day, may very well expect the Lord to come on HanakkuhWill He?  I don’t know!  What the Scripture says is that He will come on a day and at an hour when He is not expected to come.  Let that sink in!  God’s New Covenant believers are told in the inspired Word that we are to know “the season,” 1 Thessalonians 5:1-6.  After reading this study, any reader who doesn’t realize that we are right now living “in the season” of the Lord’s coming is either “willingly ignorant,” not even looking, or has never really been saved.        
     Folks, God’s people [true believers] are going “home.”  I might add that we are going “home” this year.  Read Psalm 113:7-8, which correlates with 2013. Our trip to glory is swiftly approaching even if we don’t know the exact “date,” even as I-SON and it’s seven moons are approaching.  Glory to God!   Hallelujah!  I have never been so excited and ecstatic previously in my entire life.  Our home going is at the door!  As the old hymn say, “Just a few more weary days, and then, our new life will begin.”  Praise the Lord! If any reader cannot get excited over this prospect, then perhaps you should check your salvation experience and make sure it is for real, 2 Corinthians 13:5; 2 Peter 1:10.  It is not my desire for a single reader of this study to miss Heaven when the rapture occurs. 

     Dear readers, I have poured out my heart and soul into writing this study as a “warning” to the lost [Ezekiel 33:1-6], and hopefully as an encouragement and blessing and comfort to God’s people.  Now I leave it in the hands of our Lord to visibly display in the heavens above the earth the verification of what I have written.  It is already visible to those who have the means of checking it out with their telescopes, but it will soon be visibly displayed in the night sky to every person living on the face of the earth. 
     I now plead with every reader to “make your calling and election sure.”  I don’t want to even think about any reader lost and having to suffer eternal damnation forever.  Please!  Please!  If there is anyone reading this who has never been saved, please seek the Lord Jesus as your Savior today!  Right now!  Just lift your heart to the Lord Jesus in prayer and ask Him to extend to you His mercy and His saving grace, and if you are sincere, He will hear your prayer and answer you by saving your soul.  He is a merciful and loving Savior, and has no desire to see you burn in hellfire forever.  Call upon Him and trust Him now for salvation.  Read 2 Corinthians 6:2, John 3:16, 3:36, Acts 16:30-31, and Romans 10:8-13, and move accordingly.  

May our gracious and merciful Lord God add His blessings to this study is my prayer.

A final statement

     Permission is granted to any true believer or Bible believing Christian ministry to reproduce this study to share with others.   Please do

     The first issue of my Last Call Gospel Ministry newsletter was written on October 27, 1957. I still retain a copy of it in my files. Throughout these past 56 years this ministry has been supported solely by the free will offerings of those readers whose hearts were touched by the Lord.  I have never whined, cried, begged for, threatened, or otherwise solicited money in any way for what I have believed to be the Lord’s ministry.  It has in truth been a “faith” ministry, simply trusting the Lord to touch the hearts of those whom He wanted to help us.  This will continue to be my financial policy right up until the Trumpet of the Lord sounds calling me and all true believers “HOME” to glory in just a few more days or weeks.   Today I gratefully express my deep appreciation to all those who have prayed for us, and those who have felt “led of the Lord’ to help us send forth God’s wonderful Word throughout these past 56 years.  May your rewards be great in glory. 

     Please address all comments, questions, and correspondence to:  Pastor F. M. Riley, Last Call Gospel Ministry, 184 County Road 108, Harrisburg, Missouri 65256, or I can be contacted by email at:  

     Please don’t fail to meet me in Heaven!  I’ll be looking for you.   In the love of Christ Jesus our precious Savior and Lord,
