THE WAR OF THE WORLDS (20 of 39)
THE KING IS COMING
DR. JAMES MERRITT
REVELATION 9:1

INTRODUCTION

1. WITH THE ADVENT OF SPACE TRAVEL AND ROCKETS AND
JETS, THERE HAS DEVELOPED A TREMENDOUS INTEREST IN
THAT GENRE OF LITERATURE AND FILM KNOWN AS "SCIENCE
FICTION." ONE OF THE BLOCKBUSTER MOVIES OF ALL TIME
WAS ABOUT A LITTLE CREATURE FROM OUTER SPACE BY THE
NAME OF "E.T." ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR TELEVISION
SHOWS OF ALL TIME WAS THE SHOW ENTITLED "STAR TREK."
THE FIRST OUTER SPACE HERO THAT EVEN LITTLE BOYS AND

OF HUMANITY AND THE SPIRITUAL WORLD OF HELL. IT WILL
SEE MORE PEOPLE KILLED THAN ALL OF THE OTHER WARS IN
ALL OF HUMAN HISTORY COMBINED. THIS WAR WILL MAKE
WORLD WAR I AND WORLD WAR II LOOK LIKE MINOR
SKIRMISHES.

4. WE ARE GOING TO READ A DESCRIPTIVE PICTURE OF THIS
WAR. BUT I WARN YOU IT WILL BE BOTH A DEPRESSING
