Armageddon and the Return of Jesus Christ is NOT the End of the World

end of the world

One of the biggest fibs the world tells all who listen is that the return of Jesus Christ is the “end of the world.”

This is false.

A reminder of this erroneous point of view came via a brief conversation with a heathen friend who was certain “end times” equated to “end of the world.” In fact, he appeared to be quite surprised–and somewhat relieved–to find he was wrong.

HOWEVER, the return of Jesus Christ WILL signal a change in management from Satan to Jesus Christ.  Armageddon IS the end of the control of this world by sinners and the agents of Satan.

The “prince of this world” will no longer be the prince of this world.  The “prince of this world” (Satan) will be imprisoned for one thousand years upon the return of Jesus Christ and will not be able to tempt man during that time.

“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
–Revelation 20:1-3

The day Jesus Christ returns is a day of vengeance and slaughter of the wicked foretold by God’s Word for several thousand years.

“Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.”
–Isaiah 13:9

It is easy to see why the world believes this change in management from Satan to Jesus Christ is the “end of the world.”

After seemingly able to do as they please since the Flood, the wicked will at last taste the vengeance of an angry God.

To the wicked, evil and foolish–who will all perish–it will certainly SEEM like the end of the world.

BUT believers have nothing to fear from the chaos and calamities of that time.

The return of Jesus Christ is definitely NOT the end of the world for all who place their trust in Him.

“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’S anger.”
–Zephaniah 2:3

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
