Visions Beyond the Veil
by H A Baker - CHAPTER VIII
END OF THIS AGE & THE RETURN OF CHRIST
During the mighty out pouring of the Holy Spirit, by vision & prophecy we were repeatedly warned that the end of the present age & the return of our Lord is at hand.
The Holy Spirit made this great climax at the consummation
of the present age so vivid & real that no doubt was left in any of our minds that the Lord God was bringing last & supremely important messages to his people.
The Scripture teaches that the present age will end in the greatest tribulation the world has ever seen & that immediately after that tribulation the Lord will return to destroy the wicked & reward the righteous.
“Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye looking into heaven? This Jesus, who was received up from you
into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye beheld him going into heaven.”
“Then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, & they shall see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power & great glory.”
The Scriptures also teach that this age will reach its climax at its "end" in the harvest when the tares will have reached full
fruition & when the wheat will have passed from the leaf & the blade to the full grain in the ear. When both the wheat & the tares are ripe the angels will come with the Lord to gather the harvest & to separate the wheat from the tares. In other words, when the Kingdom of the devil is at its worst & the Kingdom of God on earth is at its best, in its purest form the evil ripe & the good ripe—then will
come the harvest.
The Bible further teaches that evil will reach its climax in the incarnation of the devil in control of a demon-deceived &
tormented world & that this devil-possessed world ruler, the super-man, will be destroyed by the Lord at his coming. There may be those who take exception to the above remarks, but, without detailed
discussion of these matters, I will relate, as best I can, the visions & revelations given Adullam children, who knew little or nothing of the theology involved.
Pestilence & Wars
Time after time they spoke in prophecy, saying that a time of famine, pestilence, war, & desolation is coming & that it will be attended with persecution of the people of God, whom He will especially equip & protect in this crisis.
One boy saw our school teacher trying to buy a measure of rice. So great a crowd surrounded the granary that the teacher could only hope for success in making his purchase by pushing with the crowd. Only one measure of rice could be bought by each man.
In vision one ignorant, uneducated boy was transported to our civilized lands & saw the peoples getting ready for war, making bombs, cannon, & implements of destruction.
The coming of the devil & his incarnation in the Antichrist was prophesied many times, as well as seen in visions.
Visions of the Devil and Antichrist
The children saw the dragon, the devil with seven heads. One boy saw angels fighting with him & seven of his angels. The devil & his angels were overcome & flung
out of heaven to earth.
Adullam boys saw the super-man the world is wishing for, the great subject of worship that Buddhism, Theosophy, Mohammedanism & other religions expect. In him they
saw the devil incarnated as a handsome, strong man in the beauty & strength of young manhood.
They also had visions of the image that in due season this God-defying Antichrist will erect according to prophecy as an object of worship, the image that will be able to speak & to deceive the world. I asked how they knew this handsome man of power
was the Antichrist. They said that a host of demons followed him everywhere, obeyed his every command, advanced at his word, & halted at his order.
This Antichrist was also seen upon a plain as a beast with seven heads. Again I asked how they knew this was the Antichrist, & the children said the angels told them. I have already explained that, as to John, these revelations were given through angels when the children were "in the Spirit" in a trance & that, like him, they carried on conversation with the angels & by these heavenly messengers were told the mystery
of many things they did not understand themselves.
The Saints Under Persecution
During the reign of this super-man in his God-defying power the saints of God were standing true & bearing faithful testimony in spite of every hardship & every danger. They saw the two witnesses in Jerusalem, & they saw the saints, as well as these two, endued with mighty supernatural power to fight with & to resist the power of darkness in that awful time, the like of which has never been upon the earth— the time when the devil & all his angels & demons will be turned loose upon the earth, having great wrath, knowing their time is short. During this time, when no one but a true Spirit-filled saint could stand for a day against such Satanic power & supernatural Satanic miracles & manifestations, the children saw the saints filled with the still greater supernatural power of their God, the Spirit of him, who is greater than “he that is in the world."
They had visions of preaching the gospel in the midst of great persecution; but they were given such power that by a word from them, enemies were smitten by plagues or death. This power seemed to issue from within & came out of their mouths; with it they rebuked & slew their enemies. They were exercising the
power the Lord had promised his disciples, power to do the works He did & greater works.In some cases, after giving a testimony in a town that rejected them &
having left it a distance, fire from heaven descended & destroyed the wicked place, even as Sodom & Gommorah were swept away.
When persecution was bitter they
were some times caught away bodily by the Holy Spirit as was Philip & as the prophets supposed Elijah had been (II Kings 2:16). They were thus by the Spirit carried away to a place of safety. In time of hunger & need food was miraculously provided—manna, fruit, & other food. Angels ministered. Strength & boldness
were given to bear a fearless testimony. The Christians had power to speak with tongues in the languages of strange & unevangelized tribes. When in vision the boys or girls were thus preaching in the Spirit we ourselves could see how this might be true, for while one speaker preached to the people of a strange language whom he saw
before him, another interpreted for him (I Cor. 14:28). Both spoke in other tongues.
One spoke a few sentences, then the other interpreted. They were preaching to some of those of every tribe & language. John saw an angel flying in heaven with the everlasting gospel to be preached to all tribes & tongues, just before the fall of Babylon the Great. He also saw a great multitude no man could number, people of every tribe & language, who had washed their robes in the blood of the Lamb & had come out of Great Tribulation.
Must it not be in accord with the Scripture that, as the children saw in these visions, the gospel will be preached again under angelic ministration in the miraculous power of the Holy Spirit in a supernatural way, far exceeding that of the early Church in the days of its persecution? May it not be that the harvest outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the latter
rain, will far exceed the seed-time outpouring of the Holy Spirit, the former rain, the outpouring on the Day of Pentecost?
The Final World War
At the conclusion of the final testimony of the most perfect & supernatural church the world has ever seen, in the midst of the greatest persecution by the greatest concentration of Satanic demonical power & devil-controlled human power that any
age on earth has ever experienced, the Adullam children saw the Antichrist, the devil-
man, the super-man world leader, marshalling his forces for the final world war of the age. They also saw the war in the spirit realm. In this they saw a man on a white horse, leading his army of angels dressed in white. They also saw a rider on a red horse, the rider dressed in beautiful dark colored array & followed by his host of demons in black.
Some visions of the war on earth were also seen. Children saw battleships destroyed by bombs thrown from airplanes, & they saw the ships with all aboard enter their watery grave to be seen no more. Armies were seen gathered from all the earth, engaged in the great & terrible struggle. The children watched the awful battle.
Poison gas & deadly instruments of war slew their victims in countless numbers. At first the dead were buried, but later the slain, being so many they could not be taken care of, were piled in heaps or left to decay as manure upon the face of the earth, as the prophet has foretold.
In the midst of all these things everything was interrupted by
The Sudden Return of Christ.
The sun became dark & the moon red like blood. The stars fell in showers. The heavens shook & seemed to roll together as a scroll. There was a great earthquake
that rent the earth asunder. Great crevices opened & people were swallowed alive. Buildings were shaken down, collapsing like children's toy houses, killing & burying the inmates. While these things in heaven & earth were taking place the Lord appeared in the heavens. Old & young, rich & poor were overcome with deadly
fear. They fled in every direction in wild confusion. Men fled from their shops empty handed, without a thought of their valuables that a few moments before had seemed of great importance. Families rushed from their homes without even a glance back upon the luxuries that had been their life passion. In one moment all men became one in purpose; they had only one desire; they sought only one thing. That one desire was to
flee from the face of the returning Judge; they sought only a place of refuge to hide from the visible King of Kings. Some who were not killed by falling houses or who did
not tumble into the opened earth tried to flee to the mountains for safety; some leaped into the rivers & perished; some slew them-selves with their own weapons.
Everywhere was wailing & shrieking. Everywhere was riot & terror. Anything to escape from the wrath of the Lamb, for the great day of His wrath was come.
After this there were visions of
The Great Supper of God, where the beasts & birds were bidden to eat the unburied dead that lay scattered over the ruined earth. Dogs & wild animals were seen feeding on the carcasses of
men. Birds & scavengers of the air joined in this supper prepared by God.
“And it shall come to pass in that day that . . . All the men that are upon the face of the earth shall
shake at my presence, & the mountains shall be thrown down, & the steep places shall fall, &
every wall shall fall to the ground.” Eze. 38:18-21.
“Behold? THE DAY OF JOHOVAH cometh, cruel, with wrath & fierce anger; to make the land a desolation, & to destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the stars of heaven & the constellations thereof shall not give their light, the sun shall be
darkened in its going forth & the moon will not cause light to shine. And I will punish the world for
their evil & the wicked for their iniquity: & I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease.” Isa.63:9-11
While the boys were witnessing this great feast we could hear their remarks & see their movements as the scene was described & acted out before us. One would say, “Look at that eagle eating that rich fellow. See it picking his fancy clothes from his body. Look at that! It has taken a piece of his flesh & flown away.''
Thus saith Jehovah of hosts, Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation, & a great tempest shall be raised up from uttermost parts of the earth. And the slain of Jehovah shall be at that day from one end of the earth: they shall not be lamented, neither gathered, nor buried; they shall be dung upon the face of the ground.'' Jer 25:32, 33
“And I saw an angel,.. saying to all the birds that fly in mid-heaven, Come & be gathered together
unto the great supper of God, that ye may eat . . . the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and
of them that sit thereon, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, and small and great." Rev.
Another said, "O, look over there; a vulture & a crow both eating at that man. The vulture has the most courage. He just picks & picks away, gorging himself, never
taking time to look up, but the crow is afraid; he takes a bit & looks around to see if he is in danger. 'Ai ya,' do you see that? Look at the birds standing on that well dressed fellow & digging into him." Then the boys suddenly with one accord wheeled around
with their backs toward the repellent scene, while their remarks, as well as their motions, made it clear enough the sort of abhoring scenes that will characterize the final feast of the earth. Here will be the rich & mighty, the captains of the earth, the captains of industry, the captains of wealth, the captains of war, & the captains of all
Christ-rejecting enterprises & religions. They will not be there as honored guests, but as the food for the scavengers of the earth over which they have lived in selfish luxury.
Thus the Adullam children have already seen & described in terrible reality the culminating scenes of our boasted material civilization. They have seen the fruit of godless sowing & the answer to the question of our Lord, "What shall it profit a man
if he gain the whole world & lose his own soul?" The Word of God says, "All the nations that forget God shall be turned into hell."
These simple children believe without a doubt, because they have been shown by God & the angels what is also written in the Word of the Lord, that the climax & consummation of the present world with its human systems of education & its boasted organization & wealth will be "the great supper of God," where the flesh of the dead will be more of a prize than will be the splendor & culture that is now the pride of the living.
The Antichrist Bound and the Devil Cast into the Pit
The children saw the Lord & his angels bind the Antichrist hand & foot, preparatory to casting him alive into hell. There were visions also of the devil taken alive to the mouth of the pit; a box-like lid
was lifted up, & he was cast down into the black well-like shaft of the abyss; the lid was shut down, & the Lord locked it with a great key.
The Descent of the Lord and the Last Trumpet
We have written of the visions of the return of Christ as related to the wicked. There were equally clear visions relating to the saints. Adullam saw the heavens open & the Lord descend in glory attended by His angels. On either side & following the Lord was this great army of attendants in white. Those in front blew beautiful trumpets as with the blast of trumpets the Lord & His army descended in perfect order, every one keeping in his proper place & rank. As the Lord thus descended toward the earth there were wonderful visions of the
Resurrection & Rapture of the Saints.
Graves burst open as from an explosion. Bodies came out of the graves & were suddenly clothed upon by the heavenly tabernacle of the resurrection glory life. In
some cases bones were seen to come together as the children expressed it in Chinese idiom: "one bone from the east & one from the west." These scattered bones, having become clothed with flesh & transformed into the resurrection body, were caught up to meet the Lord in the air.
One boy saw a funeral procession where a Christian was being carried to his burial. On the way to the burial ground the trumpet sounded, the Lord descended, the coffin opened, the dead sat up, arose transformed, & ascended
into the air.
I have already told how our children had visions of some of our Adullam people already dead & now in heaven, clothed in white & enjoying Paradise & of their
seeing the saints of old clothed in white. The Scripture teaches that between death & the resurrection the saints have spiritual bodies & that the saints are clothed in white before the time of the resurrection. When I cross-questioned the children as to how
they knew whether the saints they saw in heaven had been resurrected or not, they said they did not know until the angels told them that they saw only the souls of the saints & that their bodies had not been resurrected. I questioned & cross-questioned
in some of these matters & always got a uniform testimony: the children always saw the saints in white; the saints never had wings; all of the angels had wings; there was no difficulty in distinguishing between saints & angels.
In summary, then, Adullam saw the saints in white now in heaven, with access to Paradise, & enjoying the fellowship of Christ & the angels; they saw the descent of the Lord with "all his holy ones"—all his angels—at the sounding of the last trumpet; they saw the resurrection & transformation of the bodies of the saints & their ascent into the air. They also saw Great tables were spread in Paradise in the midst of its magnificent trees, its wonderful flowers with enchanting fragrance, its glorious birds of every plumage that sang their carols of praise, where all redeemed animal & vegetable creation was one harmonious, spirit-filled, God-praising whole.
Here, then, in this indescribable Paradise of God in open spaces were spread the tables for the great Marriage Supper. Angels
& the glorified saints skipped about everywhere playing harps, blowing trumpets, singing, & praising the Lord. Some of the children acted out these scenes before us.
They hurried to their jewel bedecked home to get their harp or trumpet & joined the
spirit inspired music of the greatest of all festival scenes, the climax of all the hopes of
the ages. Great companies sang, & danced, & praised the King. Others hurried about preparing the tables or the seats & carrying the golden dishes of food. In a park more beautiful than this or any earthly park, the children had visions of the Marriage Supper of the Lamb in the Eden park in heaven.
There was abundance of food, everything having flavor of its own, exceeding anything that could be imagined. When all was ready, the call was sent forth & the saints of all past ages gathered around the tables to celebrate the wedding of the King's Great Son. The consummation of all their hopes, the realization of all highest joy in heaven itself, came to its highest
point when the harlot, the beggar, the sinner, & the one-time off-scourings of the earth came from the east & the west & sat down with Abraham, Isaac, & Jacob at this festal table in the Kingdom of God.
As all arose & expectantly reached its greatest height, the Son Himself came in & sat down at the tables surrounded by his
blood bought & white-robe clad bride the redeemed of every nation, & tribe,& tongue & drank with them the fruit of the vine.
Adullam saw The Books Opened & the Day of Judgment. They saw the books in which the deeds of men are recorded & saw the Judge upon the throne before whom all men were judged out of the books.
The righteous were set apart to stand in one great company on the one side, while those whose names were not in the book of life were gathered into another great company to stand on the other
side. The one company was separated to enter the Kingdom of God & the life of the ages; the other group was doomed to go into the fire prepared for the devil & his angels.
A few were privileged to have visions of The New Heaven & the New Earth. The New Heaven was so filled with Shekina glory that the children could not carefully
look into it. The New Jerusalem, the city four-square, occupied the central position in the New Earth. They saw the celestial city with its Paradise as it is now, but descended upon the New Earth. The whole New Earth was much like the Paradise that is now & will then still be in the city of God, the Bride of the Lamb. It was the earth God wanted for His children, more than restored by Him who is more than Conqueror. It was the New
Heaven & the New Earth that had passed through the new birth & that will never pass away, the earth where God will again pitch his tent with men, where he will
forever be called their God & they shall all & always be His Children. Amen.
[The children & young people upon whom came this outpouring of the Holy Spirit & through whom came these visions & revelations were members of the Adullam Rescue Mission in Yunnanfu, Yunnan Province, China. For the most part, these children had been beggars in the streets of the city. In some cases they were poor children with one or both parents dead & had been brought to the Home. There were also some prodigals who had run away from their homes in more distant parts of this or adjoining provinces]
The Bakers had been praying for these orphan children￼ to have a greater heart for prayer for some time and one morning during morning prayer the Holy Spirit showed up in power in a great awakening among those who are thought the least. ￼ This book is an excellent account of the early 20th century revival among Chinese children.
