In A POCKET MANUAL TO UNDERSTAND JESUS' PROPHECIES DURING THE LATTER DAYS, we focus on five modern revelations that Jesus gave us between the years 1851 and 1976: 1. THE HISTORY OF THE ORIGIN OF ALL THINGS, 1852 2. THE REVEALED TRANSLATION OF JOHN'S REVELATION, 1908 3. THE HISTORICAL FULFILLMENT OF JOHN'S REVELATION, 1908 4. THE URANTIA BOOK, 1955 5. A COURSE IN MIRACLES, 1976 These five books together give us a unique window into the future of our planet throughout the 21st century, and even as far ahead as "a few thousand years." At that time, Jesus says that part of the crust of our planet will be stripped off and become part of a new moon which is forming about halfway between us and our present moon, and this event will demand certain adaptations for those alive at that time. But the most important disclosure in these revelations is that Jesus has chosen America to be the "New Jerusalem" so that she can act as a "spiritual beacon" to the rest of the world in order to lead it into a New Age. He began creating this New Jerusalem by giving birth to the above-listed revelations all in America--hence, the "New Jerusalem." Fortunately in these books, Jesus has spelled out with some clarity the parameters of his new Kingdom and its government. So his prophecies will affect our own lives, as well as the lives of our children and grandchildren, in very profound ways. No doubt the most profound way will be by his creating the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth during his Second Coming, while acting as its King. This will be like the materialization of the transitional "New Jerusalem" into Jesus' new Kingdom. That will require our adopting new behaviors, which now seem almost impossible as we look into the future: • How can it be that the laws of force will no longer be necessary? • How can it be that selfishness will cease? • How can it be that we will create a justice system based on mercy that judges men by their motives rather than by their actions? In the context of living in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth as we move into the future, these behaviors all make sense, but we need to assemble what Jesus has said about all of these events in order to understand them and then do our part to become good citizens in Jesus' Kingdom. We do this by proposing possible ways that we can best help prepare the way for Jesus to create the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth during his Second Coming. We will do this by returning to our founding principles, which Jesus says we have abandoned, but which we must again embody if we want to fulfill our potential destiny as the "New Jerusalem." So studying Jesus' prophecies during the latter days is a hot topic. After all, who doesn't want to know what Jesus says in terms of whether or not he is returning for his Second Coming (yes, he is), or whether he is really going to create the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth while he is here (yes, he is). As a service to the concerned public who want to understand these matters without becoming experts in this field, we offer this book in conversational language, leaving the supporting research to the preceding book titled JESUS' PROPHECIES DURING THE LATTER DAYS. Meanwhile we choose to focus on the "updates" of Jesus' New Testament teachings as he speaks of them in the latter days, so that we have the full panorama of his philosophy in order to best help him create his new Kingdom. And following our conversation about these prophecies for the 21st century, we then offer proposals for what we can do to help prepare the way for Jesus to create the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
