One thing is certain about the end of the world. It’s getting closer to happening.

This is the equivalent of me answering my daughter’s question, “Are we getting closer?” when we are on a road trip with, “Yes, honey. We are getting closer.”

As long as I am driving in the right direction we are getting closer.

As long as time passes, we will get closer to the end. Duh!

Sept 23, 2017 End of the World

Sept 23, 2017 End of the World

What is special about Sep 23, 2017?

Apparently the stars will be lined up – Our sun will be in the constellation Virgo. The moon will be at her feet. There will be nine stars and three other planets near enough to be considered a ‘crown.’  And Jupiter will be somewhere near Virgo’s womb.

Revelation 12 alludes to this sort of thing. If you read the chapter the connection will be obvious to you IF you want to see it. Not so obvious if you aren’t looking for it or if someone didn’t tell you to look for it.

Does the Bible tell us when the end of the world will come?

Are there signs in the sky to let us know when the time is near?

Short Answer: No.

Long Answer: No, the Bible doesn’t give us a clue as to when the end of the world will be here.

When Jesus walked the earth as God in human form, even he didn’t know.

Most Important Lesson about the End of the World

The clearest teachings in the Bible concerning the end of the world, and I won’t beat to death what others say, is that we are to be prepared. Jesus wants us to be prepared for when the world will end.

Anything that will deter our preparation is contrary to this goal in the Bible.

Of course there are some people who get their term papers done early and prepare for tests farther in advance their their classmates. But most people get more intense = try to prepare more when the deadline or test date approaches.

Conclusion to Understanding When the End of the World will Come

Conclusion – we have no idea when the end of the world will come = we cannot hope for some sign in heaven so that we can be more prepared. The lesson of the Bible is to ALWAYS be prepared … as if a thief may come, or as if his return is imminent. No signs along the way.

What’s going to happen on September 23, 2017? In all likelihood, just another day.
