Prepare for the End

Will Jesus Come this Year? CoverWill Jesus Come…
This Year
Positive Proof that the End is Near
Grant
~1950

I have to say I am kind of loving our good friend Rev. Grant and his somewhat hysterical doom and gloom pamphlets. Not too long ago we featured his special title, Work with Less Energy. This particular title is all about end times. Some of our best indicators are some of the more evil man made problems such as: heart disease, the atomic bomb, radio and television. Our dear Rev. Grant has got you covered with lots of scripture and advice so you can be fully prepared for the end. Not buying it? Don’t be too sad. They say it’s a dry heat in hell.

“Today I watched a negro working. You know how they do. They work so relaxed, so gracefully.”

Evidently a few metaphors, Bible verses, and standing around watching people work is the key.
