The End of the World


Four horsemen Apocalypse_vasnetsov

“The galactic bridge has been established,” announced spiritual leader Alberto Arribalzaga at a ‘galactic connection’ ceremony Thursday in Merida [Mexico]. “The cosmos is going to take us to a higher level of vibration … where humanity is in glory, in joy…”

It’s interesting to read the many types of reactions to the end of a cycle in Mayan calendars. Many believe the world will really end and others believe this is the beginning of a new era. Even Christians have been deceived by this.

Let’s look at Matthew 24 where Jesus gave a direct answer to a question about the end of the world:

Later, Jesus sat on the Mount of Olives. His disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will all this happen? What sign will signal your return and the end of the world?”

Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.

“Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers. And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.

“The day is coming when you will see what Daniel the prophet spoke about—the sacrilegious object that causes desecration standing in the Holy Place.” (Reader, pay attention!) “Then those in Judea must flee to the hills. A person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return even to get a coat. How terrible it will be for pregnant women and for nursing mothers in those days. And pray that your flight will not be in winter or on the Sabbath.  For there will be greater anguish than at any time since the world began. And it will never be so great again. In fact, unless that time of calamity is shortened, not a single person will survive. But it will be shortened for the sake of God’s chosen ones. ~ Matthew 24: 3 – 22 NLT

You’ll notice Jesus’ prophecy of the end of the world is the direct opposite of Alberto Arribalzaga’s. (The Bible also prophesies about the Millennium, but that’s for another post.)

The Temple Must Be Rebuilt

One very key part of this prophecy is that the Temple must be rebuilt in Jerusalem and then desecrated. Obviously, we are years away from this, but Jews are preparing to rebuild the Temple. (Visit The Temple Institute.)

Jesus is Returning

More importantly, the end of the world coincides with the return of Christ.

Before the end, many miracle-working false Messiahs will appear. Again, we haven’t seen this part of the prophecy yet, but Jesus is returning and He is returning soon. Are you ready for Him? (Find the answer in your language.)
