The End of the World

w_endThe world has had a beginning.  It also has an end.  The Bible tells us of the end times and that the end is near; it will happen when the Lord Jesus Christ returns in great power and glory.  We need to prepare for the return of Jesus.

Don't be deceived with false teaching.  Read what the Bible says about the end of the world for yourself.  A good place to start is where Jesus' disciples asked Him two questions, When would the temple at Jerusalem be totally destroyed? and When would the end come? Read Jesus' answer in Matthew's gospel  chapter 24 and also in parallel verses in Mark chapter 13 and Luke chapter 21.think Do your own thinking! Your eternal soul is extremely valuable.

The temple at Jerusalem was totally destroyed in 70AD.  The Roman army led by Titus surrounded the city and the Christians, obeying Jesus' warning,... when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know that its desolation is near. ... flee to the mountains, ...
.                             Luke 21:20,21
fled to the hills and were spared!  Others who stayed in Jerusalem were massacred!

Also read for yourself how to prepare for the end and survive.

Signs of THE END


The Bible tells us that false christs, wars, oppression, famines, disease and earthquakes are the count-down to the end.  They are the "birth-pains"All these are the beginning of sorrows (birth-pains)
.                             Matthew 24:8
.  Each time we learn of another event we should appreciate the end is near.

It is the nature of birth-pains (contractions) that they start imperceptibly small and widely spaced, but they become stronger and more frequent as the birth approaches.  So it will be with the signs leading up to the coming of Jesus Christ.




When will the world end?

bigqThe world will end with the second coming of Christ.  Most of the signs before Jesus' coming have been fulfilled or largely fulfilled.  What is left could be fulfilled very quickly.  For instance it would take God no time at all to dim the sun and the moon.  The Bible is emphatic that we do not know when Jesus will returnBut of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
.                             Matthew 24:36
.  The Bible is also emphatic that we need to watch and be readyWatch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.
.                             Matthew 24:42
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.
.                             Matthew 25:13
Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.
.                             Luke 21:36
for the return of Jesus.
