God's Sword of Truth - The Word

Birth Pangs

By The Holy Spirit's Disciple, Raymond Laginess


This, the Beginning of the End, is bigger than what has happened in the past couple of weeks or what is coming in the near future (days, weeks, months ahead). For all the facts, read Matthew 24 (the Olivet Discourse), Mark 13, Luke 21 and especially the “last days” Book of Revelation which contains the prophecy of Jesus which tells us what the end of the world will be like when the wrath of God is poured out on a sinful universe (all of creation). HEED THE WARNING! TURN TO CHRIST AND BE SAVED BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE!


In I Thess. 5, John 16:21 and Romans, Paul paints a picture of the whole creation as being like a pregnant woman gripped by her final birth pangs, and when the day of the Lord comes it will be as travail upon a woman with child. Now, most of us know that any mother is able to tell when it is the approximate time for her baby to be born. How does she know this? By the birth pangs! The pains and contractions continue to get closer together and more intense as the hours wear on. You can hear the woman cry out, for the time of delivery is at hand!

Well, the time is nearly here for another delivery, and these final birth pangs are quite gripping! This is how it will be during the end, and the delivery will be that of Jesus Christ returning to earth to deliver His people. This you will know by the signs of the time that Jesus Christ is at the door (Rev. 3:20 - “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me”).


From the very beginning the Lord warned the world that all should be brought to repentance, as He did through Noah (the flood), Abraham (Sodom and Gomorrah) and Jonah (the sinful city of Nineveh), and no one listened. Likewise, He continues to do the same today warning the world through His Word that His Son is about to return for His Bride and that all should come to repentance before He pours out His wrath (read 2nd Peter, Chapter 3).

Now, we find that Christ told us what the world must endure when He explained to His apostles what would happen in the future (Read it - Luke, Chapter 21). Jesus said: “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” - Luke 21:36.


TO THOSE WHO KNOW NOT CHRST and remain on this earth following the "taking out" of the Christians, you will see billions die, mountains falling, islands disappearing, large buildings (skyscrapers) coming down, and might even feel the large earth quakes (10+ in size) which will be felt all over the earth, and see with your own eyes all the people starving to death due to famines in the entire world. Can you deal with that? Stars and planets (signs in the heavens) will hit the earth and there will be total darkness on the earth (read it all - Matthew 24, and Luke 21 agrees). IT WILL COME - it will happen! Why? Because the Lord says so - in His Word. BELIEVE IT! Life, as we know it, will end and the sins of the world will be judged.


Now, following the millennium, there will be a new earth and a new heaven where only the Lord’s people shall live - there will be NO religions, NO evil, NO Satan, NO darkness - and THIS IS NO FANTASY, it’s real and true because Jesus said so, it is written, it is so! The first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there is no more sea! Read Revelation, Chapter 21.


To ALL you “lukewarm” and “carnal” Christians - you had better commit your life to Christ NOW, BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE! Our society has become increasingly lawless and immoral, it is, as in the days of Noah (Read Matthew 24:12, 37-39), a society wallowing in despair. The despair brought on by their love of self, pride, money and the pleasures of this life.

For THOSE NOT READY for His return, who have given no heed to the signs of the time that the Lord has given us, YOU have already missed it! Eternity has passed you by! Eternity in the Lake of Fire is YOUR destiny!




Satan has been hiding behind man’s One World Religion and the Secret Societies of the New World Order, selling you a big “fat” lie. You have been deceived! You have allowed the Lord’s enemies, the world and man’s religion to buy your soul. You have accepted Satan’s rule and have already lost it all! Why would you follow the phony religion and antichrist? Have you not studied to “show yourself approved”? (2 Tim. 2:15).

Down through the years Satan has continued to use his evil forces to come before Christ by creating false doctrine and sacraments, religious men appearing in scarlet robes, people having visions of the Babylonian Mary (mother/child worship), icons, obelisks, temples, towers, relics, Pope worship, and the mass, ALL PAGANISM. These evil things are heavy in our political world and government, which, of course, is controlled by “money”.

There are organizations which at one time were secret but are now being used as coverings to hide the sins of its members. Plus, they have become so strong that they don’t really care who knows about them or who doesn’t know about them. Well, they have conditioned YOU to believe their lies, lies that you should accept the New World Order and the coming Antichrist. You are being molded to conform to (whether you realize it or not) a One World Government, One Religion, One Economy, One Kind of Money, One Smart Card, One Number, the Mark of the Beast (666), in your right hand or in your forehead - "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six." [666] - Rev. 13:16-18. There will come a time when you cannot buy or sell without the number of Satan's government. Right now, you are being programmed to accept whatever they do to you. It's here! It's their diabolical plan of lies. And, YOU WILL BUY IT because you have been brainwashed! No one can stop them as yet, but there is ONE who will stop them in the near future - His name is Jesus!


People, you can’t be lukewarm - you must be HOT (like a fanatic) about your love for Jesus who died for you on the cross. Can you understand what Jesus did for you? Or are you simply a mortal filled with “unbelief”, one who just does not believe that Jesus will return for His church. Read II Peter, 3:3-4 to see how scoffers in the End Times will mock the return of Jesus Christ. You have to know that He has made the way clear so that YOU would have a place in the “New Jerusalem”. Don’t give it all up, you surely don’t want to live with Satan in the fire of hell.

Time is short! Jesus is at the door knocking right now (Rev. 3:20), will you let Him in? You MUST choose NOW before it’s too late. If you haven’t committed your life to Christ by faith (through His gift of grace), I hope and pray that you will not wait any longer. What should you do? “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” - Matt. 24:42-44. Search the Scriptures, CHOOSE JESUS TODAY - do not let Him go! HE IS COMING SOON!


“...Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” - Rev. 12:12 - WOE to the FOLLOWERS OF THE WORLD, the flesh, the carnal people, (those who live for and love this world and cannot get excited about the coming of the Lord), and all evil doers who are in love with the world! WOE to the PEOPLE OF THE WORLD RELIGIONS (who have only apathy toward the return of Christ) with their made-up beliefs of all the false gospels, such as Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, Protestant, and ALL others of Satan’s faith who follow false bibles and doctrinal rules in their catechisms. WOE to THOSE WHO COME TOGETHER UNDER A FALSE PROPHET, the Pope, or any holy man who is of the devil or 666 man (antichrist). You people shall all taste of the Lake of Fire that has been prepared for you. WOE to YOU WHO CONTINUE IN YOUR SIN, your birth pangs are going to be short but heavy in punishment, as your final destination will be hell with continuous fire where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth, and your pain will be felt forever and ever. It is coming very soon!

“And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares. For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” - Luke 21:34-36

“To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” - Rev. 3:21


Yes, you can overcome by accepting Jesus Christ today. If you live for Him you will NOT have to go through the tribulation period where all will suffer the horrors that are unbelievable and many will have to die a brutal death for their faith. Don’t wait until that period of time, don't wait any longer, commit your life to Christ and He will deliver you from the wrath to come.

"For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life." I John 5:4 & 11,12.
