Luridly frightening ads threaten momentary nuclear attack — displaying the latest and
roomiest ready-made fallout shelter for your own back yard.
Is nuclear war really coming?
Is there much chance of survival?
SHOULD you build a fallout shelter?
Read the startling BIBLE answer!


FEAR and doubt are sweeping our nation! Everywhere, you hear talk of FALLOUT shelters. They ask, in brassy, bold type, "HAVE YOU PREPARED FOR SURVIVAL?"

Striking newspaper articles talk of "Project Noah," outlining the horrifying specter of fear and doubt gripping the minds of the citizens of our countries.

WHY? What does it all really mean? Should YOU look for suitable financing, investigate the claims of various construction companies — begin building your own fallout shelter?


The Survival of Civilization

Students in a west-coast college were told recently, "I imagine that the survival of civilization depends on you." They were then given their "problem" in terse, but terrifying terms.

"The world is threatened with a nuclear war so devastating that the earth's surface would be uninhabitable for 100 years. Your task: Design a survival colony to keep civilization alive for a full century."

The students were equal to the task.

They outlined whole colonies, living deep within the bowels of the earth, producing their own daily necessities, equipped with schools, hospitals, gymnasiums, little theaters, and machine shops. They proposed daily diets, and advanced suggestions on how to choose which people should survive, to preserve humanity.

Can you believe it? Do you really comprehend the significance of these frightening times in which you're living?

Today, scientists have advanced highly controversial, much-talked-of proposals for the survival of the human race.

They have outlined huge, space-age "Noah's Arks," in the form of giant space platforms, or a man-made asteroid, with a colony of human beings orbiting around the earth for generations, to descend after the land below became inhabitable once again.

They have talked of human sperm banks, to preserve the seed of life should every man be rendered sterile from radioactivity, or should genetic disorders breed a race of veritable monsters on earth, in the event any portion of mankind should survive a nuclear war.

But no suggestion has caught fire and swept the nation quite like the individual family fallout shelter!

Already, as if overnight, it has become BIG BUSINESS in the United States.


The Booming Shelter Business

Widespread publicity of top-level, official nature has truly alarmed many Americans.

Our British cousins, looking bemusedly at our feverish antics, have said, "Air-raid shelter signs can be found everywhere, causing some amusement to people who remember London in 1940. In the never-never land of Southern California there is a boom in shelters, some bought from enterprising manufacturers, some products of the do-it-yourself spirit" (Dr. D.W. Brogan, in the Manchester Guardian).

Others are shocked to learn of Americans supplying their shelters with stocks of guns and ammunition, avowedly to shoot down any "neighbors" who attempted to crowd in with them, in the event of attack. As the Manchester Guardian acidly reported, "In the neighboring and nearly empty state of Nevada, it was seriously proposed to call out the militia to shoot down fleeing 'Angelenos' and even in the flourishing academic city of Riverside, not very far from Los Angeles, resolute citizens were laying in guns as well as provisions to keep their fellow citizens out of their shelters."

Religious organizations are urging their congregations to build community-type shelters.

Priests and ministers say it may be "justifiable" to shoot down your neighbor, leaving him to gurgle out his life's blood at the entrance, and that it may be "necessary to protect your own life."

Others, soured and disgusted by the sadistic display of fear and threatened brutality, have stated they will simply "take their chances" above ground!

Today American citizens dividing into the "shelter" and the "no shelter" groups.

Special reports in leading newspapers, radio and TV coverage, have shot the shelter business into overnight sensationalism.


Authority Says Shelters Farce

On the other hand, many will tell you building a "fallout" shelter is a piteous display of idiocy.

The publisher of a leading scientific journal plainly stated that building fallout shelters is useless. The country would be in danger, not from fallout, he stated, but from blast, shock wave, and resultant fire storms.

He explained that the tremendous up-drafts created by the kindling of all burnable materials in county or state wide areas would cause monstrous fire tornadoes, whose giant fire funnels would be far more destructive than incidental radioactive fallout.

George Gallup, famous pollster, found Americans frankly confused by the great shelter debate. People want the truth — they want to KNOW whether or not to build a shelter, and if so, what kind, how. big, how deep, and at what cost?


Is Nuclear WAR Ahead?

Will there be all-out nuclear-bomb war? If so, how can you KNOW? How can you be sure?

There is a source to which you can go! It is the Holy, Sacred, ACCURATE Word of your Creator! You have heard us say many times, on the World Tomorrow program that one full third of the Bible is PROPHECY!

Prophecy is tomorrow's news — before it happens! And it DOES talk about future ALL-OUT NUCLEAR WARS — believe it or not!

Jesus described these fearsome days! He foretold the chaos among nations, the increasing natural calamities, the impending NUCLEAR bomb holocaust!

He said, in answer to His disciples' questions about the end o f the world, and His return to this earth, "For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be — and except those days should be SHORTENED," continued Jesus, "NO FLESH SHALL BE SAVED!"

Your Savior says there will BE NO SURVIVAL — not in space-age Noah's arks, not through sperm banks, and not by building fallout shelters — UNLESS A SPECIAL, SUPERNATURAL INTERVENTION FROM GOD occurs!

Except the days should be CUT SHORT, said Jesus, NO flesh would remain alive on this earth!

For years, articles in this magazine have carefully documented and fearlessly warned of impending DISASTER to strike our peoples!

But the disaster will be all the more heightened — because it will come, NOT from the source we so fearfully expect, but from an ENTIRELY DIFFERENT one!

Yes — NUCLEAR BOMBS WILL BE USED! Your Bible says WARS are yet ahead — the most utterly devastating in the history of man.


What Chance of SURVIVAL is there?

God inspired the prophet Ezekiel to give a grave warning to our peoples — the English-speaking people of America, Britain, Australia, South Africa and Canada! We are, believe it or not, the actual sons of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! (Write for the free booklet, "The United States and the British Commonwealth in Prophecy.")

God inspired Ezekiel to foretell the actual percentages of our peoples who will survive this prophesied attack! Notice it carefully!

"A THIRD PART of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee, and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee, and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them" (Ezek. 5:12).

This fearsome prophecy is REAL! It's for OUR PEOPLES — in this day!

For years, the World Tomorrow program, and the pages of this magazine have been THUNDERING this frightening warning to our heedless populaces of impending national calamities on a scale not even imagined in our weirdest nightmares!

Ezekiel wrote this startling warning over 100 years after our forebears had been taken captive, as slaves, and had been mass-deported into Assyria!

The warning was NOT for them, at that time — but is written for us, Now!

Notice it! Pestilence, or terrible disease epidemics are coming, and, at the same general time, our peoples are going to be stricken by great "natural" disasters in the upset WEATHER conditions even now growing more ominous every year Drought, and the resultant famine will take millions and millions of lives!

Then — in our weakened and dispirited state, a HARSH and CRUEL enemy — one we DON'T EVEN RECOGNIZE today — will suddenly launch a lightning-swift ATTACK!

"In all your dwelling places the CITIES SHALL BE LAID WASTE . . . the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and you shall know that I am the Eternal!" (Ezek. 6:6).

Think of it! ONE THIRD of our peoples will already be dead when this sudden, terribly devastating nuclear attack comes, leveling our huge metropolises, leaving them smoking hulks of twisted steel and rubble, like empty, silent craters in the earth!

ONE THIRD — more than SIXTY MILLION PEOPLE in the United States alone — will have died from disease and starvation!

Then, ANOTHER ONE THIRD, another SIXTY MILLION will be slaughtered by the horrible nuclear bombing that will lay waste our lands, leaving them virtual uninhabitable desert wastes, incapable of supporting life!

God sternly warns the remainder will be DEPORTED in mass shipments to strange countries, made to serve as veritable SLAVES to a cruel task master! All this will happen, unless we repent and turn to God in time to prevent it.

What CHANCE of escape and survival is there — according to the Divinely-inspired word of God? Only ONE OUT OF THREE!

But even the remaining one third are to be scattered — and God prophesied, "I will draw out a sword after them" (Ezek. 5:12). Your Bible shows the pitiful remnant of only TEN PER CENT will be left alive after this horrible WORLD WAR that is ahead — only one out of every ten of our citizens!

What chance of survival is there? Not very much! Only ONE chance in TEN! (Amos 5:3)
