• If December 21, 2012 is The End of the World, Are You Ready?

    If December 21, 2012 is The End of the World, Are You Ready?

    It is just one day before the world is supposed to end, according to some not-so-experts. Survival gear, Ready-to-Eat meals, guns and ammunition are selling at a brisk pace. Many people are taking the threat of Earth’s end seriously.

    Scientists say that there is no chance that the world will end tomorrow. Theologians postulate that there is no indication in the Bible that December 21, 2012 is the end of the world.

    I have written extensively on the subject, and I am certain that there are no Biblical prophecies that define 12-21-2012 as the final day of the existence of life on earth.

    The Bible does say that the end of the world will come at a specific time, and it actually tells us the precise moment that the end of the world will occur. First Jesus will return to the earth in an event called “The Rapture”. This will happen quickly, violently, and without any warning. Suddenly, perhaps a Billion people will disappear from the earth and be seen no more.

    The Bible describes the Rapture with these words:

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

    Verse 18 encourages those who understand the meaning of these words, to find “comfort” in them. If we believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, and are awaiting His return, then these words can bring us great comfort. If on the other hand, we have not committed our life to Jesus Christ, then the thought of a Billion people suddenly vanishing from the face of the earth is very frightening.

    December 21, 2012, The End is Near…

    If you are planning on stockpiling food and water for the predicted end of the world on December 21, don’t. One thing is for certain, a pagan culture does not know when the end will come. The Bible has predicted with one hundred percent accuracy, over 2,500 prophecies that have already come to pass, exactly as written. What other book or publication in the history of the world can compare to this record? None.

    The end of the world is vividly described in the book of Revelation as coming after the return of Jesus to the earth, at the end of His 1,000-year reign as King of the earth.

    The next event prophetically, is the Rapture of the church. It is possible that the Rapture may occur on December 21, 2012, for no one really knows the “day or the hour” that Jesus will return for His church. All we know is that His return is imminent and can happen at any moment. Only those who have surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior will be taken from the Earth, this is Jesus’ promise to us who love Him.
