The Dispensation of the Gentiles:

Soon to be closed

The Dispensation of the Gentiles is soon to be closed. As I write this letter to the churches and to the people, I want to share a vision with you that has stirred me greatly in recent days. Also, I want to share some scriptures with you that are relevant to that vision. I will begin with Genesis, chapters six and seven. And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.And now, chapter seven:And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen righteous before me in this generation. Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth. For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I destroy from off the face of the earth. And Noah did according unto all that the LORD commanded him. And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth. And Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark, because of the waters of the flood.

Prayer

Holy and righteous God, as I sit down to write this letter, speak to my Spirit, sprinkle me with the blood and give me your wisdom. Fill me with your light and your Word, the Word that spoke all things into existence and proclaimed the miraculous. I plead the blood on all who read this letter. In Jesus' name, Amen

The Dispensation of the Gospel, the Dispensation of the Gentiles, the dispensation of grace, is about to be closed! God revealed this to me in a recent vision. Jesus tells us in Matthew 24:37 that it will be as it was in the days of Noah: But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. As we read in the sixth chapter of Genesis above, God looked down on the earth in Noah's day and found it wicked and evil. Only Noah, in all the earth was found to be righteous. Noah was a direct descendent of Enoch who, as we know, walked with God. We also learn from the scriptures that Noah himself walked with God. These men were unique in that they had a direct relationship with the Lord. Enoch was a prophet and he prophesied that God would one day destroy the earth by flood, thus ending the first dispensation. I was in prayer at the altar of one of our churches recently on my return from India when the Lord spoke to me and revealed a vision to me which has greatly stirred my soul ever since. He put an urgency in my heart to bring this message of the closing of the dispensation of the gospel age to this generation. "'Soon My Spirit will no longer strive with man," He said. "When I call and they do not answer, I will not call again." The dispensation of time from Adam to Noah was two thousand years and that dispensation ended when God shut the door of the ark and destroyed the rest of the world with the great flood. The second dispensation of time (two thousand years) began with Noah and ended with the first coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. The dispensation of the gospel began with Jesus Christ on the cross two thousand years ago and it is that dispensation which God has revealed to me is about to be closed. I believe the generation we are living in today is as it was in the days of Noah: And the Lord said, My Spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh; yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years... And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (Gen. 6:3 and 5) You know, it has always been interesting to me that many bible scholars and religious historians interpret God's statement about the hundred and twenty years to mean that is man's projected life span, that God had cut man's life span short. I do not believe that is true. I believe God was saying that in one hundred and twenty years He would destroy the earth. In other words, He was giving man one hundred and twenty years while Noah built the ark. "Noah", God may have said; "I will bring this dispensation to an end when you have finished the ark." Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he. And the Lord said unto Noah, Come you and all your house into the ark; for you have I seen righteous before Me in this generation. (Gen. 7:1) And they went in unto Noah into the ark, two and two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. And they that went in, went male and female., as God had commanded him: and the Lord Shut him in. (Gen 7:15-16) God has told me that the time has come when He is commanding us to get saved because He is about to shut the door! He has told me to tell our young people that they can no longer continue to reject Him. "Soon, I will not deal with them anymore," He said; "Instead I will bring destruction upon them!" In this vision, God revealed to me that He would have destroyed the world two thousand years ago if Jesus had not come to the earth. You may not agree with that but that is what God told me. If Jesus Christ had not come to the earth, if He had not said "Not My will but yours be done," God would have destroyed the earth at that time. The dispensation of the gospel saved the world from mass destruction. Jesus ended the dispensation of the law and the prophets and there was now the dispensation of the gospel. There would be no more sacrificing in the temple. No more burnt offerings. The veil was rent in two. Now, it was repent and believe the gospel. He gave the dispensation of the gospel to be preached to all the world and we call this the dispensation of grace. God virtually destroyed the twelve tribes of Israel, saving only the tribe of Juda. He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. In those days, He spoke by the prophets and at their word He destroyed whole nations. But Jesus was a man of mercy. He was moved with compassion and mercy. And when He ascended to heaven, He took His seat at the right hand of the Father. He became our mediator, holding back judgment against us. We can never know how many times God would have destroyed nations if it had not been for the intercession of Jesus Himself. "I have given them two thousand years," God spoke to me and said; "Two thousand years to preach the gospel to all the world." You see, God did not tell us to build multimillion dollar churches. If we had taken the money that has been spent on church buildings and cathedrals over the centuries, especially in the times we are living in, we could have evangelized the entire world. There were many who wanted to go as missionaries but there were no funds in many instances. One preacher spent three hundred and fifty million dollars on a hospital and then closed it. Another preacher in one of America's largest cities tells us he is building a fifty million dollar church! Another preacher just closed his church down and sold sixty three million dollars worth of church property. The gospel did not benefit in any of these instances. You see, it is not God's fault that every human being has not heard the gospel. I believe God has blessed America to evangelize the world. Instead, America is spending a hundred billion dollars annually on church buildings and church payments while the world is lying in darkness, and is lost. And, the Pentecostal world is just as guilty of this misdirected effort as the rest of the denominational world. A well known missionary did a statistical study of the income of the Pentecostal churches and found that only four percent of the gross income has gone to evangelize the world. The rest has stayed in America. I believe the denominational wall will soon crumble! When the star appeared in the East that led the wise men, it did not lead them ultimately to a king's palace. Instead it led them to a stable. "My people need to get back to the manger," God said to me recently while we were in Australia: "They need to go from the manger to the gospel. These modern preachers should be preaching a 'cow stall' religion instead of a movie star religion ." God has given us the greatest dispensation of all, not of law but of grace, of love, of the gospel, of the 'good news' that man could come to God and repent but God has told me in this vision that I am writing about that He will soon shut the door just as He did in Noah's time. The dispensation we are in today was prophesied by the ancient prophets including Daniel. The angel Gabriel appeared to Daniel as Daniel prayed, and told him to consider the vision he would show him. The vision is described in Daniel 9:24-26: Seventy weeks are determined upon your people and upon your holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for Himself... Each week of the seventy weeks was seven years (seventy hebdomads or weeks of years). So Gabriel was showing Daniel that the conclusion of four hundred and ninety years would see the coming of the end. And, in the seventieth week the Messiah would come. Then he said that Jesus Christ, the Messiah, would be cut off in the middle of the week. Jesus' ministry was designated for seven years. That was the seventieth week of Daniel. That ended time. When Jesus was crucified after only three and a half years of ministry, God called Time out and began the dispensation of the gospel, the dispensation of grace. But God only gave two thousand years for the gospel to be preached.The other three and half years of Jesus' ministry will not be fulfilled until the gospel age is closed. Then time will go back to the seventieth week (or the four hundred and ninetieth year) of Daniel. At that point I believe we will see a Jesus ministry that will raise the dead, cleanse the leprosy right before our eyes, Just as Jesus Himself did. We will see a 'Jesus' ministry before the world comes to an end. We will think Jesus has come back in the flesh but the ministry will be in the sons of God. This is where the greater works of Christ will be manifested. Beloved in Christ, the clock is about to start running again and time shall be no longer. God's two thousand years of 'Time Out' is coming to an end. He is about to close the door on the age of the dispensation of the gospel, the dispensation of grace, the dispensation of the gentiles. Therefore, we must work while it is day for the night is fast coming upon us. But you, O Daniel, the angel Gabriel continues speaking to Daniel in Chapter twelve, verse four, shut up the words, and seal the hook, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased. Then I Daniel looked, and behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and swear by Him that lives forever that it shall be for a time (one year), times, (2 years), and an half (one half of year or three and a half years); and when He shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished. And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my lord, what shall be the end of these things? And he said, Go your way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

Even as I write these words, the Lord has spoken to me from Isaiah 26:20-21: Come my people, enter you into your chambers, and shut your doors about you: hide yourself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. For, behold, the Lord comes out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain. I believe we are about to see millions slain, I believe great cities will soon be destroyed with not a habitation left, yet people will still refuse to believe that the dispensation of the qospel, the dispensation of the gentiles is coming to a close. You would do well to heed my prophecy: God is beginning to bring in the fullness of time. Time shall be no longer. Even satan knows that his time is short. ... Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. (Rev. 12:12) The devil knows that the dispensation of the gospel is closing and he has but a short time to bring about great tribulation, Jesus speaks of this tribulation in Matthew twenty-four, verse twenty one: For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there would no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake (that's the elect of grace, not the Jews) those days shall be shortened. Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there, believe it not. For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. That is what is happening in the world today. Behold, I have told you before. Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, He is in the desert; go not forth: behold, He is in the secret chambers; believe it not. For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For where ever the carcase is, there will the eagle be gathered together. Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not Rive her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken; Many bible scholars today claim that Jesus was speaking of the fall of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. I believe that is an absolute abomination - a lie. Why? Because the sun did not turn dark nor did the moon turn to blood at that time. The stars and the galaxies did not shake. Only Jerusalem was destroyed, and, a few Jews escaped. Moreover, God did not shorten the days for them. The Jews have been more than two thousand years in tribulation and the days still have not been shortened. Neither was Jesus speaking of a time of rapture when the church would be called out. You will find nothing to support the rapture theory in Matthew twenty-four verse three through verse twenty-nine. Then, in verse thirty, Jesus says: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

When did He say this would happen? Immediately after the tribulation of those days (verse twenty-nine). It becomes clear then, that the rapture theory is an abomination - a lie. And, it is clear that the dispensation of the gospel is closing.

And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, (John writes in Rev. 10:1-7), Clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: - And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not. Notice the similarity in Daniel twelve. He speaks almost the same thing. And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, And swear by Him that lives for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: What time is it ? The time of the dispensation of the gospel. Not the end of the world.But in the days (which is the long trump) of the seventh angel (which is the seventh trump), When he shall begin to sound, the mystery (The word 'mystery' in the original Greek means the complete fulfillment, the complete plan of God) of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets. God is speaking through John of the complete fulfillment of His word. He is bringing us very near to the coming of the end. ... For all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet," Jesus says in Matthew 24:6. The anti-christ is still to be revealed. The destruction of Babylon (which, I believe, is America) must still take place. The pagan gods must still be destroyed. These things cannot happen so long as we are under the dispensation of grace, the dispensation of the gospel. God cannot destroy and fulfill the prophets as long as we are under the dispensation of grace. He will close out the gospel age before He brings destruction upon the wicked and their ashes. But, as the age of grace comes to a close, we will most certainly begin to see mass destruction. As John writes in Revelation, chapter six, when the sixth seal was opened there was catastrophic destruction. Men hid themselves in the mountains and prayed for rocks to fall upon them for the wrath of the Lord was come. I believe the world is about to be shocked. We will see a cataclysmic change. The dispensation of the Gentiles was to last two thousand years. In the beginning of that dispensation, Jesus told His disciples to go into all the world and preach the gospel. He told them to go and make disciples of all nations. He told them that they would receive the baptism of the Holy Ghost and, that they should be witnesses of Him to all the world, to the farthest parts of earth, beginning at Jerusalem. Jesus never meant for His disciples to go out and build hospitals, nursing homes and day care centers. Those are, of course, all good things but they are not the commission God gave to the Apostles and disciples. "Go and preach the gospel," He commanded. "Work while it is day. As long as I am in the world," He had said to them before the crucifixion, "I am the light of the world.." You see, when the gospel is taken from people, there is no light. In the vision I am writing about in this letter, I saw the age of grace, the age of the dispensation of the Gentiles come to its close. I have never been more shocked in the entire course of my ministry. The everlasting gospel was still being preached to every nation even during the time of the anti-christ but the sixth seal had been opened: And I beheld when He had opened the sixth seal, John writes in Revelations 6:12, And, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casts her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together: and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of Him that sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? I saw it happen! I saw the Age of Grace come to its close. It was shocking. Time is running out! Beloved reader, if you intend to qet saved and live for God, you had better do it now! Time is at the door. The gospel age shall soon be no longer. You must tell your children they do not have ten years to sow their wild oats. "My Spirit will not always strive with man," God has said to us. The time is near when the gospel will no longer be preached to those who rebel against it. God has waited. He has been long suffering till the day which He has appointed. Because He has appointed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness by that Man whom He has ordained... (Acts 17:31) Take heed, beware lest that which has been spoken by the prophets shall come upon you - instant destruction!! But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, John writes in Revelation 10:7, when he shall begin to sound, the MYSTERY of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets. Then Paul writes in Romans 11:25: For I would not, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this MYSTERY, lest you should be wise in your own conceits, that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulfilling of Gentiles be come in. And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written. There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob; For this is My covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. 'All Israel' means ALL of God's people, not just the Jews. These are the elect of grace, ALL that God has ordained to be saved. And, as I have written earlier in this letter, the word 'Mystery' means the whole word of God is fulfilled!. Every prophecy is fulfilled. I want to share something with you - not a prophecy but something I feel in my heart. I believe God will close the door to the two thousand year dispensation of the gospel before we end the year 2000....

For then shall be great tribulation, (Jesus says in Matthew 24:21), such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake (the elect of grace, see Romans 11:25 above) those days shall be shortened. Then in Luke 21:18, Jesus says: But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your patience possess you your souls. And when you shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies; then know that the desolation thereof is near. This prophecy has already come to pass. Jerusalem, in fact all of Israel, is surrounded by enemies, Arabs who want to totally destroy Israel. Jesus said that when this happened, the end would be near. Zechariah prophesied that Jerusalem would be divided and a wall would be put up. That never happened in Jesus' time nor in the time of the Apostles. It happened in 1948 when half of Jerusalem was given to the Arabs and the other half given to the Jews. So likewise you, when you shall see all these things, Jesus says in Matthew 24:33, know that it is near, even at the doors. Truly I say to you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. Then in Luke 21:21 Jesus says: Then let them which are in Judea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter therein. For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. You see, God is bringing us right down to the close of the age. He couldn't do this as Iong as Jesus was here. He couldn't do this as Ionq as the qospel age was in effect, the age of the dispensation ot the Gentiles. But God will have His vengeance. It will be as lsaiah prophesied in 24:1: Behold, the Lord makes the earth empty, and makes it waste, and turns it upside down, and scatters abroad the inhabitants thereof. And in Isaiah 13:13, the Lord said: Therefore I will shake the heavens, and the earth shall remove out of her place, in the Wrath of the Lord of hosts, and in the day of His fierce anger.

Zechariah said that in those days, people's eyeballs would melt in their heads because of the heat. Malachi said the earth will be like an oven. Those early prophets prophesied that there would be earth-quakes of terrible magnitude along with storms and calamities as God closes the gospel age. Billions Will die. But observe what Paul writes in Second Thessalonians 2:3-4: Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition... You see, the anti-christ cannot reveal himself until the gospel age, the age of the Gentiles, is closed. It has been the gospel that has held back the anti-christ. Now that the gospel age is coming to a close, the man of sin will reveal himself. That, of course, does not mean that no one will be saved during this time. Even after the sun has turned to darkness and the moon has turned to blood, people will be getting saved. Many ministries today are attempting to have the Last Day, Holy Ghost Revival. That cannot be until God has totally closed the gospel dispensation. People are already beginning to reject the gospel as God begins to close the door to the dispensation of the gospel, and as they walk out, God will soon begin to destroy them - instant judgement. It will be even more terrible for people who reject Jesus in this time than it was for Sodom's and Gomorrah's judgement. I believe we will see catastrophic destruction right here in America. lt will not be down in Nicaragua or Honduras where the hurricane hit that I had prophesied last year and ten thousand people were killed. It will be God's days of vengeance right here in America. But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck, in those days! For there shall be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this people. And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations; and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. (Luke 21:24-28) The 'times of the Gentiles' is the gospel age. And there shall be signs in the sun, (after the gospel age is closed), and in the moon, end in the stars, and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws near. Then in verse thirty-five, Jesus says: Watch you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.

As we read in Acts 17:31, God has appointed a day to judge the world by the same man that has been preached for two thousand years as the Savior and healer of the world. "I have called to them in the morning," God said to me in June of 1997; "They did not come; I have called them in the noon time and they did not come. Now it is evening time and I am giving them their last warning before the great and terrible day of the Lord." That day will begin when God shuts the door to the dispensatidn of the qospel. For the great day of His wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Rev. 6:17) Then Peter, speaking to the multitude in Acts 2:16, said: But this is that which was spoken by the prophet Joel; And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on My servants and on My handmaidens I will pour out in those days of My Spirit; and they shall prophesy: ,'. And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved. But notice that Joel says 'afterward', after the moon turns to blood and the sun becomes dark. And it shall come to pass AFTERWARD, that I will pour out My Spirit upon all flesh; etc. (Joel 2:28) There has never been an outpouring of the Holy Spirit such as will be at this time. As I wrote earlier in this letter, I saw the denominational walls crumble as the dispensation of the Gentiles comes to close. "The two thousand years that I designated for the gospel is now coming to a close," God said to me in the vision I am writing about in this letter. As we approach the end of the year 1999, as we get into the year 2000, I believe we will begin to see fearful things. Then, I believe, we will see the door shut on the gospel age! "At that time," the Lord said to me in this vision, "All prophecies that have been spoken by My ancient prophets, all that I spoke by John in Revelation will begin to come upon the people." In 1961 I had a vision in which I saw Jesus looking down on America and the world and He was weeping. "There will be a day," He said, "When I will turn My back and all prophecies shall be fulfilled." Beloved in Christ, it will not just be destruction but it will be destruction upon destruction! That is what the Lord said in Jeremiah 4:20 - Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: suddenly are my tents spoiled, and my curtains in a moment.

Do you know what has restrained the anti-christ for these two thousand years? The Gospel! But, when the door to the gospel aqe is closed, you will pick up your paper one morning and read where an entire island with two or three million people went down into the ocean. You will read where mountains have moved. You will read about calamities in the heavens. You will read where the entire West Coast has fallen into the ocean. People will be walking the streets trying to escape a judgement without mercy. You will read about tidal waves that have killed millions. l often wonder, beloved in Christ, that if you knew for absolute certainty that we only had a matter of a year or two, what would you do? It is a question we all should ponder with great seriousness. That is one of the great reasons you should support this ministry financially in these closing days of the dispensation of the gospel, the dispensation of the gentiles. We must not sin away our days of grace as they did in the days of Noah. This ministry is one of a very few in the world today that is teaching the truth and the prophecies as they are revealed in the bible and that message must still be taken to the world, especially in these closing days of the dispensation. We are still to see an outpouring of the Holy Ghost such as has never before been witnessed. People who call upon His name will be saved. Therefore, it is imperative that the gospel be taken to the nations, particularly to the nations that have not yet heard the 'Good News'. I was preaching this message in India during the closing days of our crusades there in January, February and March of 1999 when God confirmed my message on the closing of the dispensation of the gospel in a very unusual way. A membr of the crusade team was looking after the emergency invalids that night and a little old Indian man, a Hindu, came into the line carrying his wife in his arms. I learned later that she had not eaten in six months. She was a bedridden, dying woman. I do not suppose she weighed more than fifty pounds. Her husband sat down in front of the platform and cradled her head in his lap. She looked as if she were already dead as she lay there in her husband's lap. Her arms and legs were nothing more than skin stretched over bones; tiny, fragile limbs that could no longer support nor serve her body needs. "What is wrong with her?" I asked the team member in charge of the emergency invalid line. "She is dying," He said. I didn't pay much attention to situation at the moment. Instead, I began to preach this message to the tens of thousands of native Indians who were gathered there in that great space. It was a massive crowd. But my eyes kept going back to that little old woman lying here with her head in her husband's lap. (I weep as I write this account of the events of that night.) Then, the Lord spoke to me: "I will raise that little woman up tonight," He said. "I will make her whole and that shall be a sign to you that the dispensation of the gospel is coming to a close. She will walk out of here tonight." I preached for about sixty minutes I suppose, I don't know for sure and then, at the conclusion of the sermon, I went down into the audience to stir and pray for the people. People were crying. Everybody could feel the powerful presence of the Holy Ghost. I have never seen or felt the overpowering presence of the Holy Ghost as I did that night. I had been preaching this message of the end for three days and the people were responding to the Holy Ghost in a powerful way. "I will raise this woman up," The Lord said to me again. I stopped and I prayed for that little old woman who lay there dying. "In the name of Jesus of Nazarath," I prayed and then I added silently; "God, you said this would be a sign to me" and I knew it was as I continued to pray for that little old woman. As I prayed, the Spirit of God in me went out of me into her. "Woman," I cried, "In the name of Jesus Christ, you are made whole. Rise up!" She wiggled around for a moment, opening her eyes slowly. Then, very slowly, she got out of her husband's lap and got into a squat position, her legs so thin they looked like match sticks - certainly not strong enough to support her meager weight. Her little body was so frail but she stood up, fully erect! She raised her hands and began to walk for the first time in many months. She became strong, as she lifted her hands to the Lord!! "Go home and eat!" I cried. "You're healed!" Brother Borday told me the following day that the woman had indeed eaten and was strong and fully healed. This was God's sign to me that this was His appointed time for this message of the closing of the age of the dispensation of the gospel to be preached to all the world. I will be going to every church with this message and to as many nations as I can reach in the days to come. If you are to evangelize your own community, you must begin to get the people saved. You had better discontinue any discord among yourselves. The night is far spent and the day of judgemert is at hand. Beloved reader, if you are a backslider, pray through today! If you are Called to preach, you had better preach, even if it is on the streets on Saturday after you have worked five days a week elsewhere. You can no longer straddle the fence. As I wrote above, this is the hour God has appointed for this message to be preached. God has waited until this time, 1999. He could have revealed this to me many years ago but He has waited until now. "Why you?" Some may ask. "Why do others not know about all these things?" "Because," I would reply; "God knows I'll prophesy this all over the world. He knows I am not afraid. He knows that I do not care whether the critics aqree with me or not." Reader, the Christian world is about to be shocked. It has been easy to get saved as long as we have had love and grace, as long as we had Jesus. But it will not be so easy in the days that lay ahead. If you have taken on the ways of the world, the ways of the heathen, you had better get right because the handwriting is on the wall. Do not put this letter aside with sin in your life. Christian preacher, do not rebel. Cry out and repent. In my vision, I saw doors opened for preachers if they would get their bibles down and start preaching the life of Jesus. I believe we have less than two years before God begins to close the door on the dispensation of the gospel.

"Come into the ark," God said to Noah.
He is saying to us today to come into the Ark.
JESUS IS THE ARK!
Come in before God closes the door.
May Jesus Christ keep and protect you.
In Jesus name we pray.

Your brother in Christ,
Brother David Terrell
