The end of the world did NOT happen on Saturday May 21st as predicted. The earthquakes did not come – although floods and tornadoes did. But the world did not end.
It’s always fascinating to see what parts of the Bible people take literally or metaphorically. I am always surprised at Biblical literalists who do NOT take our Lord’s words literally regarding the last days.
Regarding the end of the age, the end of the world, the final judgment, the rapture and all other concerns regarding the world’s end, Jesus said, But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. If He said it, then we should trust in the veracity of His teaching. These words must be taken literally. Yet many do not.
No one will be able to properly read the signs of the end. No will be able to determine the day or the hour. But all of us need to know that one day the world will actually end and each of us needs to be spiritually prepared. Should our Lord return in five minutes of in five million years, those alive at the time need to be prepared to receive Him. He said, If you love me, you will keep my commandments. Keeping His commandments is the way to be prepared. Very simple.
And for those of us who die before His return, we need to remember that our graves will open and that we will be raised. Thus, we need to die in the Lord so that, when we’re raised, we will be in good shape to receive Him. In any case, keeping the Lord’s commandments remains essential.
I welcome your comments. Looking forward to hearing from you -
