Whenthe ancient prophecies of major floods and earthquakes are suddenly fulfilled, many of Earth's people are rescued by spacecraft and taken to huge mother ships, where they are received as honored guests while Planet Earth undergoes a complete restructuring.
As they enjoy the enriching experiences of daily life on these giant spaceships, they debate and plan their New Society. Rejecting outright any form of aggression and planetary pollution, they develop new ideals of law and liberty based on one simple, all-embracing principle reflected in a full program of land and resources-use, economy, business, and personal liberties.
Just as many intrepid souls once crossed the Atlantic from the Old World to a new continent and a new life, so the time finally comes when Earth's people return to their 'new' planet, now cleansed, refreshed and replanted.
Take a full guided tour of a giant spacecraft 25 miles long and 5 miles high, follow the detailed policy and planning debates, and glimpse the ideal society we all dream of, yet never manage to create.
Planet Earth: Extreme Makeover|
In these days of Tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars of heaven shall fall, and the powers that are in heaven and earth shall be shaken.
And when these things come to pass, then look up, and lift up your head, for your redemption draweth nigh. You shall see signs in the clouds with great glory. And the elect shall be gathered together upon the four winds, from the uttermost parts of the earth.
But of that day and that hour knoweth no man. Therefore take heed, watch and pray, for you know not when the time comes. Take heed of yourself, lest at any time your heart be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, with wealth and property, and other cares of this life, and the day shall come upon you unawares. Study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands; but in no way go beyond, and defraud your brother in any matter.
Watch therefore and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape the Tribulations that shall come to pass, and to take for yourself a new life.
And be not afraid, for verily, you shall weep and lament, but the Earth shall rejoice; and you shall be sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.
