Satan, the world (a GREAT friend and ally of Satan), as well as the Corporate Media (Satan’s Mouthpiece) ALL refer to the return of Jesus Christ as ‘the end of the world.’
They are ALL mistaken.
AS USUAL, the truth of the matter may be discovered in God’s Word (the ONLY truth in the world).
“One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.”
“Thy faithfulness is unto all generations: thou hast established the earth, and it abideth.”
“Bless the LORD, O my soul. O LORD my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty. Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”
BUT, what about the Bible verses the wicked have memorized for such an occasion?
“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
“While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”
So, which is it?
Will the earth abide forever or will it pass away?
AS USUAL, the truth of the matter may be discovered in God’s Word (the ONLY truth in the world). And so, the answer to this question is also contained in God’s Word.
“Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.”
For all of those who might not understand what God is saying in Isaiah 51:6, Psalm 102 gets to the heart of the matter: the old version of the earth–the first earth–will pass away, but the new version of the earth (with Jesus as the perfect ruler) will be what men see.
The earth will be CHANGED (like one changes one’s clothing).
“Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands. They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed”
ACTUALLY, the replacing of the OLD world (Satan’s world) with a NEW, improved world (with Jesus as ruler) will be the ‘end of the world’ for all who are unbelieving or wicked.
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
So, even if the unbelievers do NOT believe the Word of God, they believe enough to know that THEIR world–a world of sin–is at its end when Jesus returns.
God–who controls ALL within His Creation–will not allow mere man to destroy His handiwork. The earth will not be destroyed by nuclear war, climate change, asteroids, fairies, unicorns or any other story of Satan.
The earth WILL be changed.
But the ‘end of the world’ is a bedtime story the wicked tell their children.
Nothing more; nothing less.
“But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.”
“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.”
DOES the reader understand that the earth will be GREATLY CHANGED once Jesus returns to earth?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
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.”
