What is this World coming to

what is this world coming to

This is a fraise I have heard and said many times. Anytime you turn on the news, you will be bombarded with stories of war, poverty, gloom and the like. Global terrorism is on the rise. The US economy is failing. The Mayan calendar ends in December 2012. What is this world coming to? Many believe that the world as we know it, is coming to an end. This can mean several different things.

Our world is falling apart

In the USA we have a failing economy, many have lost faith in the federal government, unemployment and homelessness is at a all time high, and foreign and domestic terrorist attack attempts are at a all time high. These are all unsettling facts! As if this isn't enough bad news, add in the possibility of major natural disasters. Hurricane's, earthquakes, tsunamis, All have the ability to cause massive devastation. All of this can definitely make you unsure about tomorrow.

Our world is coming to an end

The end of the Mayan calendar on December 21 2012 has a lot of people fearing the end of the world in eminent. World war, solar flairs, global climate shifts, galactic alignments, and many other theories have some believing the apocalypse is coming soon and our world will cease to exist any longer.


With the many possibilities for destruction, what should we be doing? How you prep for doomsday is a personal preference. I’m not saying it is a bad thing to have a good supply of food, water, and other necessary supply’s in case of emergency, but don’t let this be what you rely on and trust in your own abilities. "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal." - Matthew 6:19-20

Material possession and supply's may make you feel better about your situation, but what is here today, can be gone tomorrow.

"25 Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? 28 "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. 29 Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. 30 If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." – Matthew 6:25-34

What does the Bible have to say

Revelation 9:20-21 lists the 7 signs of the Tribulation

  • Rebellion against God
  • Worship of Demons
  • Idolatry
  • Murders
  • Sorceries
  • Sexual Immorality
  • Thefts

These are all present today. So does this mean that the end is near? Many believe so. Matthew 24:36 says “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows—neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son —except the Father only." There is a time set for the Great Tribulation. Some claim to know when it is coming, some scholars claim they can prove when it will be, but no one know except the Father in Heaven!

So what should we do?

We were given a warning in 2nd Timothy; “3 The time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, 4 they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths”. Do not turn away from sound doctrine and the Word of God in His Holy Bible. Do not put your faith in your own abilities or the abilities and teaching of others. Keep your faith in God. Only he can save us from death (physical and spiritual separation from Him in Heaven).

If you have not already accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I invite you to learn How to become a Christian. If you trust and believe in Him, we will take care of and provide for you no matter what the World does.
