Most people seem to think that the world is becoming, or will inevitably become, a better place in which to live. It is felt that through education, diplomacy, and scientific advances, most people will live longer, better, and more peaceful lives than any who have lived before. Is this really what's next?
Not according to Jesus! Not long before He left this world about two thousand years ago He said, "As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be" (Matthew 24:37). There are two very important things in this statement. First, Jesus reiterates His promise to return to the world (more about this later). Second, when He comes, the condition of the world will be the same as it was in the days of Noah. What is said about the world then? We are told, "The earth was corrupt" and "filled with violence" (Genesis 6:11). The headlines on the evening news and in the world's newspapers every day show that in spite of our "advanced civilization" and modern technology, these two evils—corruption and violence—are filling the world today.
Places where it was once safe to walk at night are now the scenes of crime during the day, and many things that God has always called corruption and sin are now accepted as "personal choices" and "lifestyles." Note the words of Jesus again: "As the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of Man be." By looking around at events and conditions in the world today, we believe that "the coming of the Lord draweth nigh" (James 5:8).
His coming will occur in two stages, fulfilling two very different promises. First, the Lord Jesus Christ will come to the air with a shout, raise the bodies of Christians who have died, change the bodies of the living believers, and rapture them all to heaven, "that where I am there ye may be also" (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; John 14:3). Then, later, all who have rejected Christ will be judged "when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ" … "because He hath appointed a day, in the which He will judge the world in righteousness" (2 Thessalonians 1:7,8; Acts 17:31).
What's next in God's schedule of events for you? Will you be among those who "know not God," and perish in your sins, or will you be among the blood-bought people of God, and be caught up in a moment of time to be forever with Christ?
Knowing God is not believing that He exists; it is not saying prayers or going to church or doing good works. Knowing God is entering into a personal relationship with Him through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ, who said "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me" (John 14:6). Jesus Christ has provided the only way by which hell-deserving sinners like us can have our sins washed away when He "bare our sins in His own body on the tree" and "rose again the third day" (1 Peter 2:24; 1 Corinthians 15:4).
In order to be ready for what's next—the coming of Christ—you must realize that you need salvation, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). You must realize that without Jesus Christ, there is no salvation, "For there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12). You must realize that you cannot earn salvation, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast" (Ephesians 2:8,9). You must simply trust what Jesus has done for you, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16). "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved" (Acts 16:31).
Turn in faith to Jesus today and He will take away your burden of sin—no matter how great it is. Only then will you know the One who holds the future in His hands, and be ready for what's next.
We can add your custom imprint to individual titles of Gospel Tracts, as well as our Calendar Cards. Please note that Tract Assortments, Poems, Mini Tracts, booklets, and some Believers Tracts cannot be imprinted.
How Much Does Tract Imprinting Cost? The imprinting charge is $4 per pack for tracts. There are no setup fees or minimum or maximum quantity limits, so when you order an imprinted item, feel free to order as few or as many copies as you want.
How Much Does Calendar Card Imprinting Cost? To order imprinted calendar cards, locate the special Personalized item in the Calendar Cards category. The imprinting charges are already built into this item; there are no other extra charges or fees.
How Long Will It Take to Get My Imprinted Items? Tract imprints of about 3,000 copies or less (per title) only require 2-3 business days for printing. Tract imprints of 3,000 or more copies (per title) usually require 2-3 weeks for printing. Imprinted calendar cards are usually shipped in about 1 week.
Where Does My Imprint Go? Every tract has a reserved space on the back (approximately 1" tall x 3" wide) for imprinting (see picture at right). The calendar card has a reserved space on the calendar side (beside the year). Your imprint will go in this space.
How Much Text Can My Imprint Include? There is room for up to 5 lines of text on Gospel Tracts (4 lines on calendar cards), with approximately 40 characters per line. Adding more text would require the text to be so small that we don't recommend it.
Can I Add A Logo or Image? Yes, you can upload your own custom logo or image. Remember that adding an image to your imprint reduces the amount of room available for text, and you should limit your text accordingly.
How Do I Order Imprinted Tracts? When ordering a tract, select the "Add Imprinting" option and fill in the fields that appear. A live preview will be generated so you can see what your imprint will look like. Please note that due to differences in devices and browsers, your finished tracts may not look exactly like the preview. All imprints are reviewed by our designers for content and style before printing.
Do I Have to Enter My Imprint Over and Over? Nope. If you are ordering multiple tracts with the same imprint, you can enter all of the details with the first tract, and then enter "same" on Line 1 for the others. Likewise, if you have ordered imprinted tracts in the past and want to use the same information, simply enter "same as before." All orders are carefully reviewed, and we will link everything together for you.
