The end times are a time of great deception.
Part of that deception has to do with teaching end times man that he has all the time in the world to “make things right.”

Part of that deception has to do with Satan’s versions of the end (what the workers of iniquity call “the end of the world.”)

- CLIMATE CHANGE: The End of the World According to Satan
- End-of-the-World Scenarios according to Satan

- The End of the World–According to the World
To further the deception and confusion about the end times, Satan (through Satan’s Mouthpiece [the Corporate Media]) repeats the devil’s favorite bedtime stories concerning the end EVERY DAY.
There’s the one about “nuclear war” ending mankind.
One would think that story has been told so many times, end times man would be getting tired of hearing it.
There’s the much newer story about “climate change” raising the seas (?) and ending life on earth.
One of Satan’s favorites for years involved the invasion of earth from “outer space extraterrestrials.” That story was repeated HUNDREDS of times in scary movies for decades after World War II (1945).
And one of the latest tales involves an asteroid hitting the earth from “outer space.”
With all of this in mind, it was decided that perhaps this would be a good time to set the record straight about the “end of the world.”
A few “end of the world BASICS” for the interested reader.
1 – The return of Jesus Christ and His complete triumph at Armageddon is NOT the “end of the world.”
It is a change in the world’s management: from Satan and the workers of iniquity (who control the world now) to Jesus Christ. Because of this change, the wicked, evil and foolish will all perish.
Is it any wonder why the world hates Jesus Christ?
For the wicked and lost, the return of Jesus Christ is the end of THEIR world.
2- The return of Jesus Christ is the climax of human history.
Particularly as history has been written up to this point.
“History is a set of lies agreed upon.”
“History isn’t what happened, but a story of what happened.”
—History is a Weapon

3- Satan will no longer have free reign over the world. The devil will be shut up for 1000 years and then loosed “for a little season” before being judged as the chief enemy of man and for Satan’s centuries of wickedness and rebellion against God.
“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.”
“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.”
With the devil in chains for 1000 years, man will no longer have to hear tall tales about what was once called “human nature.”
“Human nature” will be discovered to be something quite different without Satan tempting and deceiving mankind.

4- God will increase man’s lifespan (as it once was before the flood).
“There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed.”
There shall be no untimely deaths: the Prophet describes this renovation of the world as a state similar to that which the Patriarchs enjoyed before the flood; the purport of the latter part of this verse is, that he that died an hundred years old might be looked on as dying in childhood, cut off in the beginning of his days, as a punishment for sin; it may be more plainly rendered, “He that dies an hundred years old, shall die a child; and the sinner that dies an hundred years old, shall be accursed.”
–W. Lowth, British Family Bible Notes
5- The return of Jesus Christ and His total triumph over the kings of the earth and their armies will usher in a COMPLETELY NEW way of doing things. This “completely new way of doing things” begins with the complete victory of Jesus Christ over the kings of the earth and their armies at Armageddon.
“And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty. And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.”
“And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse [Jesus Christ], and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
Jesus will rule for 1000 years.
THEN, God will create a new heaven and a new earth. (Neither which will know sin.)
“For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”
These are the basics of what happens when Jesus Christ returns to earth.
There is more, but that is for another time, another article.
When Jesus Christ returns to earth, it is NOT the end of the world.
It is the beginning of an entirely NEW world, however.
DOES the reader pay attention to all of the latest “news” which conveniently features Satan’s version of events about the end times?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

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.”
