of a Supernatural Character
earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful
sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. Luke 21:11.
As we near the close of time, there will be greater and still greater external
parade of heathen power; heathen deities will manifest their signal power,

wonderful miracles of healing and will profess to have revelations from heaven
contradicting the testimony of the Scriptures.
