Review

We read from the last book of the Old Testament:
Malachi 4:1-6; (King James Version)
1 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.
2 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.
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.
May the LORD bless his Word in our hearts.
We repeat the well known verse namely Malachi 4:2:
2 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.
When the day dawns and the sun comes up, then we know a new day has begun. We know the night is past, the shadows took flight because the king of day appeared on the stage and he walks like a hero (it says so in Psalms) to complete his circuit.
But we thank the LORD that there is a Greater Sun than that, which is waiting during these times, ready to rise. That is ‘the Sun of Righteousness with healing in his wings!’ That Sun of Righteousness is none other than He who created the sun that we see! He is the Almighty, praise the wonderful Name of the LORD!
It is thus so wonderful to view God’s Word and to know that God’s Word does not hold anything back that is useful to us. The LORD’S Word also, with great emphasis and with great precision clearly show that times of terrible judgment lie ahead for this earth. I know that many people are tired
4
of hearing this, but beloved, if ever there was a time when we should spread this warning, it is today! And we see the signs before of our eyes marching by with forceful violence!
This part consists of only 6 verses, two of which clearly show what a terrible day it shall be or, if we can rather call it, what a terrible night it shall be! The Bible calls it a day simply because it is an event; it is a great moment in the history of the world. But according to our information, it is going to be midnight!
I repeat the first verse, Malachi 4:1;
1 FOR, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; - - - -
(It will burn like 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.
God’s Word is full of the terrible judgment that He is about to bring upon this world system and the crux of the matter is that it shall be a judgment of fire!
It is a judgment of destruction such as man has never seen in his life or will ever see again.
In 2 Peter 3 he said:
10 “- - - - the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, - - - -”
Furthermore he says:
- - - - the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
But thank God then he says:
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Herewith the mentioned verses in 2 Peter 3:10, 13;
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away 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.
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
And Malachi 4:3;
3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.

God is coming to cleanse this world, to break down this Babylonian system in which we are enslaved, to crush it and clean it to its foundations; so that the glorious Kingdom of God can be established on this earth.
This is Scripture; the Bible is full of it this in both the Old Testament and the New Testament. We, as believers must then believe that it will happen sooner or later!
Is this not true?
If we thus see the signs around us, that which is described to us, then it shows that the time has come! You and I are the generation in which it will happen.
But I want to discuss in greater detail the new day “after” the night has passed! After the judgment has some!
The wonderful day of tomorrow, the wonderful and amazing day when the Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in his wings!
We can say beloved, that we are living in a long period of darkness consisting of sadness, oppression, anxiety; it is ungodly on this earth. The time has come, the night has almost passed and the day is nigh. But thank God, beloved, when that day comes, praise the LORD, and the Sun of Righteousness shall rise with healing in his wings, we will see new heavens and a new earth wherein righteousness dwells.
After the anxiety, the peace and serenity of God will descend on this earth! Even on this issue the LORD did not keep us in the dark and I would therefore like to read a couple of well-known verses; so that you will hear what the LORD says in his Word.
In Revelation 21 the heading of the first 8 verses reads:
The new heaven and the new earth.
1 AND I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Those of you who have read my book, “Book of Revelation” a while ago may find it a great blessing to read it again. I would like to read from this book the correct translation of this first verse as the verse above does not provide the true meaning of what really will happen.
It is as follows:
When you read my book “A New Heaven and a New Earth” you will also read therein that the LORD shows very clearly how the ‘first earth’ existed before the flood, before the first judgment.
The earth was surrounded with “a waterbelt” and the sun did not shine directly on the earth, it shone through the water. Whether the poles or the
6
equator, the same climate prevailed. Today you will find that animals generally only found in tropical regions were excavated in the Polar Regions - you can read this in any good Encyclopaedia. In some of these animals’ intestines were found the remains of tropical plants which they were chewing on just before some disaster struck them. The meat of some of these animals’ were so well preserved that people cut portions from it to barbeque and eat. These are well known facts.
Where did they come from?
This confirms that the earth was indeed surrounded with water, had a lovely tropical climate and that a terrible disaster struck it. The water that surrounded the earth fell down as rain and resulted in the flood of Noah.
At the same time the enormous weight of the water tilted the earth’s axis relative to the sun. Previously it was vertical and rectangular to the sun with the sun shining through the belt of water, creating the equable temperature. When the surrounding water disappeared and the weight thereof on the earth tilted the earth’s axis, this, together with the earth’s rotation around its own axis and its rotation around the sun, caused our seasons.
As far as Noah was concerned, a new heaven opened up for him, a heaven after the flood which did not exist before because the sky was cloudless. It was a new earth for Noah as 70% of the earth was underneath the water. (Please view the world map) The largest portion of the earth is covered with water. The mentioned 70% water was in the air before the Flood. That water now covers large portions of the earth today. Such are the depth of the water that those portions are deeper than some mountain peaks in the Himalayas are high. Humans have never set foot on approximately 70% of the earth, due to it being covered with water.
But when Jesus Christ comes this will change. I know that these things sound unbelievable to us, but God’s Word shows this to us in various places and I describe it in our pamphlets. I do not know how many people make use of the privilege to read our pamphlets and to listen to our cassettes. (I do not want to boast, but I must say: God knows and He knows my heart. I do not say this to honour myself, but to honour and glorify His Name. I want to say to this congregation, if you have read these pamphlets or studied the books, you will have more knowledge than what you would have learned at any school or university.)
