When is the End of the World?


 

By B. Walker

 

Because the many who make the claims to know the date are called brethren I will be kind here and will only state that if you do this, you are very miss guided. Because to set dates for the return of the Lord, when as he himself said no one knows the day or the hour but the father only who is in heaven, but to set dates gives the appearance that you have elevated yourself to the height of God!

Matthew 24:30-38 (King James Version)

 30. And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

 31. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

32. Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

 33. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

 34. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

35. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

36. But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

37. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

 38. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

39., And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Also we are told to watch and discern the times as this will be a sign for us. We can know when it is at the very door, and in fact we are commanded to known when it is at the very door and to watch for the signs, but the day and the hour we know not.

Next there are those who claim the date of December 21, 2012 will be the end of the world, this too is wrong! Because of this the Bible prophecy will be fulfilled that says; in the last days there will be scoffers who will say, Where is the promise of his coming, for everything remains the same since the beginning of time! (Or since the fathers, fell asleep! (died)  as found below,

2 Peter 3:3-7 (King James Version)

 3. Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

 4. And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

 6. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7. 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.

Dec. 21, 2012 is stated to be the end of the age or eon not the end of the world; it is a time of chaos as predicted and known by man from an ancient time. The date itself is under debate but this time has been calculated, and has been known from ancient times as a giant eternal sign found in our Milky Way called by the Greeks Ouroboros i.e. meaning the tail eating snake or serpent. It is a time that supposedly the sun will shine through the eye of this serpent as a sign that the Sun God is to soon return, It is the time for chaos for mankind the day of the Suntilla and why many in antiquity worshipped the god known as Saturn who is represented by Capricorn the goat fish, who is also known as the Ancient God Ninib. Saturn is the sixth planet from the sun and is the largest planet after Jupiter in size. Saturn was usually represented as an old man, bare-headed and bald, with all the marks of infirmity in his eyes, countenance, and figure. In his right hand they sometimes placed a sickle or scythe; at others, a key, and a circumflexed serpent biting its tail, in his left. He sometimes was pictured with six wings, and feet of wool, to show how insensibly and swiftly time passes. The scythe denoted his cutting down and subverting all things, and the serpent the revolution of the year.

I should also mention that Saturn is known as the grim reaper because of his depiction with a scythe and the Suntilla harvest festival is said to represent when God comes to harvest the grapes of wrath. The reason we celebrate the New Year and father time is said to stem from the fact that the grim reaper or angel of death had passed us over for another year, for eat drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. Also Associated with him is the great serpent that encircles the world as a great time keeping wheel of time... There is a prophecy in the Bible given in Revelations that speaks of some Cosmic happening when Satan is cast down to the earth in Revelations 12:1-17 and fits perfectly with the Mayan calendar and prophecy but keep in mind this is still not the end of the world.

Jesus mentions also in Luke that he saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven, as seen below

Luke 10:17-19 (King James Version)

17. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name.

18. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

19. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Now look what we see in

 Revelation 12:1; Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Could this sign be that of the sun shining in the eye of the tail eating serpent? Let’s continue for clarification,

Rev. 12:2. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

12:3. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold a great Fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. (The tail eating serpent is depicted in the orient as a dragon eating its own tail)

12:4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.(could this mean as some predict that there is going to be chaos in heaven when the planets align in 2012? Some think it will be bad enough that all the power grids will be knocked offline, and that the Milky way that is coiled up like a galactic snake will come uncoiled causing stars to be strewn out of their orbits and planets to shift because of the rift.)

12:5 And she bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, And her Child was caught up to God and to his throne.(we know this to have been the Christ child and Jesus and his ministry. Keep in mind this is not a chronology of the events as they happened, but an over view of past, present, and future as found in Rev 1:19 as commanded by Jesus to John)

12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.(The true Church is persecuted and goes underground for almost 1300 years)

12:7. And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

12:8. And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

12:9. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Now I don’t believe that this has happened yet so this is likely in the Future)

12:10. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

12:11. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12:12. Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

12:13. And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. (I believe that this was and is the Christian era and Church also likely the Jewish people who are hated worldwide)

12:14. And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (I believe that the Great eagle is America and we are at present 234 years old as a nation this fits the Time, times and half a time, as stated above.)

12:15. And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. (America at present is under attack by a barrage of evil influence that is trying to tear away our foundation, and the very fabric of who and what we stand for, even to the point of denying our Christian principals and foundation. There can be no doubt that Satan has set his eye on this land that has been a beacon of light and hope for the world, because of our Christian heritage.)

12:16. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.( The one thing that will bind this country together is disaster or if we come under attack and I think that the significance of this is exactly that we return to our roots)

12:17. And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Matthew 24 (King James Version)

1.And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

 2.And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. (Jesus predicts the destruction of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem that happened in 70 AD.)



3.And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

 

4. And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. (Great deceptions such as the massive use of the Alinsky method that is being used and bombarded all over the world to sway minds and opinions.)

5.For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ;(Anointed) and shall deceive many. ( this has been happening for years! Many televangelists claiming they are specially anointed by God and try to sell you their newest book or teaching.)

6.And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. (this many will say has been happening for centuries and is meaningless in prophecy.)

7.For nation (Race) shall rise against nation,(Race) and kingdom (Country) against kingdom (Country) and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (this again many will say has been happening for years)

8.All these are the beginning of sorrows.

9.Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. (This happened in the past with the early Church and is happening again today even in the united states of America. It has only just begun to take place but you can feel the change in attitude everywhere.)

10.And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. (This goes without saying today with having to watch what you say and all the politically correct hype you are bombarded with. Today you can barely say a word without the worry that you have offended someone somewhere, and the fact that the hate is rampant speaks volumes to this prophetic truth!)

11.And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.(Now this goes without saying! But the fact is this has been happening for centuries as well so it is not positive proof of the end times.)

12.And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. (this is a perfect example of our decay of society today, we have become desensitized to all the violence and sexual perversion, we have become lovers of self and users of others for our own personal gain and benefit. We have all grown cold!)

13.But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

14.And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.(I think that it is safe to say that the Gospel of the kingdom is being preached all over the world to any and all who would listen; by satellite, television, Radio, and the internet. No other time in history would it be possible to have the gospel preached in such a way as to reach every corner of the world all at once.)

15.When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:)

16.Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:

17.Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take anything out of his house:

18.Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes.

19.And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

20.But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day:

21.For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

22.And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. 

23.For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

24.And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.

25.Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.

26.For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

27.Behold, I have told you before.

28.Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.

29.For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

30.For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together.

31.Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

32.And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.

33.And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

34.Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh:

35.So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.

36.Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

37.Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

38.But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

39.But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

40.For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

41.And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

42.Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

43.Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.

44.Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

45.But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.

46.Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

47.Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

48.Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

49.Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

50.But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

51.And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

52.The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

53.And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

I know your heart is in the right place but your time line will only prove to make you appear foolish to anyone who may read your post, and by this the Church as a whole loses any credibility that it may have in the eyes of the secular world. The Lord is long suffering when it comes to mankind and until that last soul is saved that can be saved or reached God will reserve his judgment until his appointed time that is only known by him!

Many Church sects have tried to set dates only to suffer the embarrassment and loss of any credibility that it may have had. The Jehovah witnesses were one of these as well and the Seventh Day Advantest movement, who now has two followers of Armstrong who make claims to be one of the two witnesses as mentioned in the book of Revelation.

One is Gerald Flurry who in the past laid claim to this high post of pre-eminence and the other is Ronald Weinland who openly states he is a prophet on his website!

Unless these two who claims to be prophets can prove that they are Elijah and Enoch I don’t buy for one moment their exalting of self to such a high standing among us mortal men. I find this alarming that such men could stand before men with a straight face and make such claims. I find this to be appalling to say the least. If Christ has taught us anything in this life, it’s that humility is key! Pride goeth before destruction! And if the king, of kings, and lord of lords humbled himself and served man, how much more should you? How on earth do you people expect that god will exalt you, being so haughty?
