End of the Day or End of the World?
Sudden destruction can come, but no one knows the exact details. It will come uninvited and unexpected. But why are you scared?
Creationist camp, which is in contrast to evolutionists, believed that God created the world. And because God created the world, it is from Him and from His words wherein we can get valid information on how and when the world will end. But in cases that men tried to speak ahead of Him, will you believe their prophecies over what God says? Here are some parameters to be taken note before the “End of the World will come”.
Before that day, they referred as “end of the world” or harvest , will come (Mt.13:37-41), these things should necessitate first. Meaning, none of these should miss from the listing before its occurence.
Suffering or Great tribulation will be experienced by those who were left in this earth under the reign of an anti-Christ
Mat 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
Second coming of Christ preceeds that day. Christ must have come the Second time. His first coming is when He was “tabernacled in the flesh” (Jn.1:14) , and it is the reason why some celebrated December 25th, the Christmas Day. His second coming is another,but no one knows when (Mt.24: 36,42,44).
-Claims of Mayan civilization,Nostradamus’ prophesy,and many others, are false even if some of their claims happened. They are like the Jehovah’s Witnesses group, Harold Camping and many others who were mistaken concerning the coming of Christ and the last days.
Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Mat 24:38 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,
“Even a broken clock is right twice a day” S. Hunt
Signs will be so rare
Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
(Read the whole Matthew chapter 24) But as of now, no observance of those things yet.
Sacred ground for Israelite must be restored.
Jewish temple or the Temple of Jerusalem must be rebuilt. But before the rebuilding, Israel should clear the place where the Palestine is. That is the place where the “Dome of the Rock is” presently situated. And no one can prevent that war between Israel and nearby Arab countries when it happens, when Israel and its full force regain the land from the Palestinians.
Six six six man will be revealed
The Anti-Christ will come first. He will make known himself in the temple. But the temple in Jerusalem must be rebuild first before his coming. (2Th 2:1-4 , Mt.24:15)
2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
Snatching away of the church should happen before it
No believers were left here before the end of the world. The church will be snatched away, that’s why I am a
pre-tribulationist. I believe that God will not let me pass through those times.
2Th 2:6 And now ye know what withholdeth that he might be revealed in his time.
2Th 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
Sharing of the gospel of the kingdom must be preached first into all the world (Mt.24:14)
But we are at the age where the gospel of the Grace of God, and not the kingdom gospel, is revealed and preached. This is still unknown to some bible students. This is why the gospel of the kingdom is in abeyance. The Lord’s disciples asked this already and they were answered by the Lord
Act 1:6-7 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
This is why the Truth Seldom Heard about the gospel of God’s grace must be made known to all men. It’s not yet the time for preaching the gospel of the kingdom, but the gospel of Grace, where Gentiles (those not Jews or not from Israel)are recipient also.
Instead, ponder on these Questions
Are you ready to die?
Are you saved already?
What if you die today?
You can prepare on how your Day will end. You do not know when will it come, but it surely will come as you observe your neighbors, your friends, your parents and grandparents gone before you. And before you leave this earth, make sure you are properly informed. You cannot bring with you anything in this world except an assured salvation in Christ. Search the Scriptures (bible). It is a
Mat 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
