Description

Written in the late 19th century, G.H. Pember's Earth's Earliest Ages is a book that might possibly be even more relevant in the 21st century. In Ages, Pember presciently observes the decline of Godly fear in society that was predicted in the Bible. Pember details seven points by which Christians can discern the relentless march of prophetic events leading to the rapture of the Church, the Great Tribulation, and the return of Jesus Christ. The seven signs as presented in the book are: I. A tendency to worship God as Elohim, that is, merely as the Creator and Benefactor, and not as Jehovah the covenant God of mercy, dealing with transgressors who are appointed to destruction, and finding a ransom for them. II. An undue prominence of the female sex, and a disregard of the primal law of marriage. III. A rapid progress in the mechanical arts, and the consequent invention of many devices whereby the hardships of the curse were mitigated, and life was rendered more easy and indulgent. Also a proficiency in the fine arts, which captivated the minds of men, and helped to induce an entire oblivion of God. IV. An alliance between the nominal Church and the World, which speedily resulted in a complete amalgamation. V. A vast increase of population. VI. The rejection of the preaching of Enoch, whose warnings thus became a savour of death unto the world, and hardened men beyond recovery. VII. The appearance upon earth of beings from the Principality of the Air, and their unlawful intercourse with the human race. The Christian reader will be challenged and encouraged by comparing Pember's theories with the reality of today's world. The reader will realize that the time is short. We are to be about the Lord's work as the Lord is returning soon. Are you ready?show more
