Why the World WILL NOT End on December 21, 2012…

imagesAllow me to share what the Scriptures say about “The End.” Yes, the Mayan Calendar does not have the final say regarding the end of the world but only God’s Word. Jesus shared key indicators on His Olivet Discourse with His disciples on Matthew 24. Jesus was asked this question: 3 “And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?”

He answered this with regards to the end of the world: 14 “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.” Specifically, after the whole world with its 7 billion inhabitants heard the good news that Jesus died for our sins as the Savior of the world, then the END WILL COME!

Regarding any dates, this is what Jesus said: 36 “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” He has reserved the right of setting the dates of His return to God the Father. But the specific signs of His coming will be the same as in the days of Noah: 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

In other words, if you know what Jesus said from reading the Scriptures, then you will not be anxious about the end of the world nor when would Jesus come back again. We need to be prepared spiritually to meet Jesus when He comes the 2nd time for His own and also at the Judgment Day: 27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: 28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.” (Hebrews 9:27-28)

 So, make preparations for an “any day” scenario instead of being caught up with dates of the end of the world. You will only be frustrated because no one knows the date of the end of the world except the One who created it. For sure, it will come but on His terms not on anyone’s forecasts.

Just to share what I’ve known directly from the Scripture evidences. I can be wrong but the Scriptures cannot afford to be wrong. May God bless us all with another day as we wait for the end of the world spiritually prepared and looking forward to meet Jesus at His 2nd coming…
