Lauren, I don't believe the world will end. What I believe is the end of the age as Scripture tells it. That doesn't mean the world will be wipped out. And have a new beginning later. God promised never to distory the earth again.
What we call the end times, is the end times of this age. As Scripture unfolded we are getting to the end of the age. The last parts of the plan of God. Many things are yet to come, but we are very close. As some have said, the knowledge of man has increased so much that things are now moving faster then ever before. The last 30 years so much has be done with computers and all. Now, we are really with no excuse to learn the Truth.
---MarkV. on 7/6/09


The Bible(GOD'S inspired words to us thru Holy men), says, that the endtimes will NOT come upon those who have WATCHED & Prayed & who's names are in the Book of Life.

Many ppl are like those in the Days of Noah,
didn't have a clue to what was going to happen, UNTIL it happened, YOU/we do have a clue(it's Gods word)...

Wide is the path to destruction and narrow the path to the Glory of God, in which, only a few shall find...

Even worse, is now days we have ppl that think they know whats up, and try to CONvince others of their NONsence...

SEE that NO man deceives you, The times are upon us, Glory be to God...

Mike and MarV: It isen't anyone's guess as to whether we are living in the end-time. According to the Bble we are. Just check it out for yourselves.
---Pierre on 7/3/09


Mike, I believe you are absolutely correct. We have to be very close. How close its anyone's guess, but close. Tensions in Israel, Iran, and all countries around there seem to be ready for something soon. One thing to remember are the words of Jesus in Matthew 24, He says, "Do not be deceived" He mentions this warnings four times in this single sermon. The only way to avoid being swept away in this swirling falsehood is to pay close attention to the exact words of Jesus Christ. This discietfulness will be so great that only the "Elect" are exempt from been deceived. Some people will promote a secret second coming, Jesus says, "Believe it not" Why? Because there will be no secret in His coming.
---MarkV. on 6/23/09


The thing that makes me believe the end is quite near is that the Church no longer promotes the Bible as the truth, and certainly if truth, not the only truth. They say things like 'What is truth?' They either believe or promote lies, or they think that the truth is unknowable and abstain from an opinion. It is completely outdated to believe the Bible. This is surely a sign the end is near.

Frances~ I noticed a lot of these blogs aren't working properly, plus I noticed no one can reply on the Catholic blog now. Thanks though very much for offering to help...we'll try again another time. God bless.
---Anne on 6/22/09


Thanks, Anne, for the welcome back. I missed CN so much I could not stay away too long. I will see if there is anything I can say to help you, but I am sure it's all been said before.
---frances008 on 6/22/09


The signs are that the mark of the beast in the hand or arm will follow a great economic downturn when the major news outlets start to promote this idea. Already the Financial Times mention this as the way forward for Asia. I cannot see it coming without much suffering, as it would not just be accepted for no reason.
---frances008 on 6/22/09


I think the only thing the Bible shows us is in Matthew 24 where it says this gospel will be preached to the whole world and then the end will come. Back even 300 years ago this was not possible because America was not founded yet. It seems now the whole world can be reached much easier and at a more rapid rate than ever before. I believe he is at the very doors according to this verse.
---Mike on 6/22/09


Yes ... with scientific knowledge, for example we now know how to send up satellites. But if our rocket scientists been put in a field without any instruction, and no handed down knowledge, would they be "clever" enough to find iron ore and make tools?

But I think the psychology was always there ... I'm sure the spy-masters of centuries ago were just as good at psychological torture as our present day psychopaths. We've just got better chemicals developed now
---alan8566_of_uk on 6/22/09




Thanks for the welcome back Alan. I had some stuff to do which could not wait. I see what you mean. Knowledge has increased but it is not intuitive knowledge, or discerning knowledge, it is just technical and scientific and also some psychological stuff.
---frances008 on 6/22/09


Yes welcome back Frances!

Hey Frances, please help me out on the Catholic blog and explain to us there please why the Catholic church thinks that at infant baptism a baby becomes 'born-again.'

I have never been a Catholic so I need a bit of your insight there. Thanks!
---Anne on 6/21/09


Welcome back, Frances, I had missed your contributions.

I agree with yuo that the dangers are greater now, but I think it is because the weapons are more powerful, not because people have become more evil. Biblical history shows men were as devious and traitorous as now.

I agree with you that we are no more intelligent than before ... indeed we are just as foolish! ... but Steveng had referred to us having more knowledge, and this is true ... it is only in the last few years thatr we had the knowledge tro build nuclear weaplons, and still mopre recently the technology to deliver those weapons. That is knowledge, not intelligence.
---alan8566_of_UK on 6/21/09


as believers we are to be ready for the end,and thats all.For you know not when your bridegroom cometh.
---tom2 on 6/21/09


people are becoming what scripture said they would become. Lovers of the flesh,liars,etc,described in the new testament. They will totally ignore God,as though they need nothing from him.Evil,maybe,but definitely stupid,and also prophesied.
---tom2 on 6/21/09


We cannot know the exact time.

"Agenda 21"/"Georgia Guidestones" (90% population reduction) is the goal of the globalist politicians..."brother" against "brother", neighbor against neighbor.

A few years ago, Bush told NASA to explore the moon for resources that could be exploited (reportedly, moon dust contains a small amount of gold). This year NASA launched LCROSS (to EXPLODE releasing 1102 tons of moon debris into outer space).

Could this disruption of planetary functioning cause Revelation 8:12 so that weather would so severe that "days" must be shortened to 16 hours?

"a third of the moon, and a third of the stars".

Time is short?

why worry about when the end will come?For believers there is no end.
---tom2 on 6/21/09


I agree with Steveng that people are more evil now and that the signs are getting more and more frequent. Threats and rumours of war all the time. Promises that the next world war will be a nuclear one, with horrific consequences for major cities. Much of the globe could be wiped out. Yet they still keep making weapons and our leaders profit from wars all the time. The weapons are crueller and crueller and so are the torture methods, and the dictatorships. Hollywood shows us worse and worse violence. But I disagree with Steveng about humans being more intelligent, getting cleverer. I think we are fooled more easily into believing Science Fiction on our television.
---frances008 on 6/21/09


>>People are no more evil now than they ever were. They are just the same in every era. People are just people.<<

This an interesting statement, and one we are hard put to verify. We have only a sketchy knowledge of the kinds and extent of evil that existed in the past. We don't know actually HOW MUCH evil existed in the days of Noah... except it was more than God could tolerate. And we don't know how to compare it to the world in which we live today.

I agree that the evil nature of man probably has not changed. As you say,"people are just people". But sometimes it seems as if the OPPORTUNITIES to practice evil are expanding almost exponentially.
---Donna66 on 6/20/09


I believe we are living on the brink of end times. We're still in the position to decide if end times is going to happen. But we have to think fast and do something quickly, because soon we will lose that opportunity, the way we're headed.

WOW, when I think how evil we are told times were right before the flood, how everyone BUT Noah and his family perished, all because THEY rejected his warning, it must have gotten sooooooo bad for God to have gone to such extremes.

We are told the world WILL become soooo evil again beyond words (2 Timothy 3)and we are also told this time God's judgement will be FIRE...not a flood.

Just as the time of building Babylon, when ALL minds were working together as one..so we see NOW...a one world effort to rebuild. God didn't approve then or now!!!

What might seem innocent to us or even good for us is actually vile to God!

I wonder if any of you ever read the prophesies concerning the end times.

Sure, there have been wars, pestilances, earthquakes, etc, but Jesus says that they will increase in frequency. (hint: birth pains).

People have changed, too, especially since World War Two. Humans have simply lost their self control. Love has left the earth - even most christians. Sure, christians know that they must love, but they don't know HOW to love. Knowledge has increased considerably: ninty percent of all scientist and engineers during all of time lived within the past fifty years.

Mark, there have always been people like those Peter seems to be describing. There is nothing new under the sun.

Eric:

2 Peter 3:3-4 "Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation."

Sounds a lot like "People are no more evil now than they ever were. They are just the same in every era" don't you think?

Or do you prefer Ecc 1:9 "That which has been is that which will be, And that which has been done is that which will be done. So there is nothing new under the sun."

tonne -->> I believe that if people could possibly do whats right in the eyes of God that we could save ourselves from the end.<<

That's just the problem! People can't do what's right in the eyes of God. And they are entirely incapable of saving themselves!

Rom 3:10 ..., "THERE IS NONE RIGHTEOUS, NOT EVEN ONE,

That's why Jesus came. We need a savior.

2Cr 5:21 (NLT) For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.


Jhn 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live.

Did you ever see a bottle fill up? Just before it is fills there seems to be a quickening, a suddenness, a rush to fillness. This hour, this time is such a moment when the fulfillment of the time of the Gentiles is quickly coming to a close.

We have been living in the end times since Jesus went to be at the right hand of God.

When the flood of Noah happened the world before that ended. The Planet earth was still here but it was changed.

After JESUS comes this world will be cleansed by fire. But the planet will then be remade like it was in the garden of Eden. There will be no more sin and death.
---Samuel on 6/17/09


YLBD--

>>God says, that this is a world without ending.<<

I'm not sure where you found this, but it wasn't in the 21st Chap of Revelation. What I found was this:

Rev 21:1 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.
Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

God says, that this is a world without ending.

And after everythings said and done(Rev.21), and the New Jerusalem decends from the new heavens, for the old ones shall be burnt-up with a feverant heat, even the earth shall be burnt with this heat from God, the life giving water that will flow from the throne of God and the Lamb/Yahshua/Jesus, and it will flow down unto the dead sea and give life even unto it, so that a great variety of fish will be fished from it and that the leaves of the tree's that bear 12 kinds of fruit shall be used to replenish the earth, and thats Gods word...

"Are we living in the end times?" Yes.
"Doesn't the Bible say that the world will end with world war 3?" No.
The end of the "world" as in this currently sensually based system of things, will end the day Jesus returns, and as an age, immediately following the Great White Throne of Judgment.
---joseph on 6/16/09


\\There are at least 1000 years following that, when the earth will be inhabited by a population ruled by Jesus Himself.\\

No, there are not.

This is just a kingdom of this world, and Jesus said, "My Kingdom is NOT of this world."

Yes we are livng in the "time of the end" For a descritpion of the time look up Math.
24 te whole chapter.
The Bible dos not say that there will be a ww3 before it is over.
It does talk about "tribulations" and plagues to happen before He comes back.

The Bible doesn't mention World War III. It mentions a number of wars including Armagedden, but we have no way of knowing if this is "WWIII".

Christians often talk about "end times" coming just before they will be Raptured (taken up into heaven by Jesus)... sometime before, during or after the time of the Great Tribulation. But that is not the "end of the world" There are at least 1000 years following that, when the earth will be inhabited by a population ruled by Jesus Himself.

Jesus tells us Luk 21:33 Heaven and earth shall pass away: but my words shall not pass away. We do not know just when the earth will end.
---Donna66 on 6/14/09


I think you are just being told alot of "hearsay". Of course, many bad things will happen in the LAST of the "last days" (end times),....militarily and otherwise, but to think that we can understand Revelation so perfectly as to know what to expect right now is shortsighted (plus it's meaningless as to DEVOTION).

The "church of man" (apostate church) is a rebellious and evil generation that has always taken the three aspects of God (Father, Son, and HIS spirit) and replaced the three with the qualities of man (6th day creation),...the apostate church is the "evil generation"...

Luke 11:29
"but no sign shall be given to it except the sign of Jonah".

LOVE God.
---more_excellent_way on 6/14/09


1. According to St. Peter, we've been in the "last days" since the Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost.

2. No, it doesn't. The Bible says no such thing.
