This blog has been created to give a biblical perspective on the soon coming end of the world. Though it may may sound sensationalistic yet the fact of the matter is that the coming real world events will be far more incredible than anything we can presently foresee.
When the disciples questioned Jesus about the end, they phrased the question in two parts:
1. What shall be the sign of thy coming?
2. What shall be the sign of the end of the world?
So we can safely conclude that the second coming of Jesus Christ is inextricably connected with the end of the world. The second coming of Jesus needs little in the way of explanation in that it simply means that Jesus Christ will once again appear on the Earth in bodily form as he first did some 2000 years ago. In subsequent blogs I will discuss in greater detail the exact implications and the methodology of Christ's return to Earth as King of kings, and Lord of lords, and to assume the government of this Earth from the wicked usurpers that presently rule and reign upon it as the representatives of Satan whom the Bible identifies as the god of this world. (2 Cor. 4:4) However, the phrase 'the end of the world' as quoted in Matthew 24:3 needs must be clarified since in no way, shape, or form does it imply the end of the Earth itself.
The apostle Peter did forewarn us that one day this present Earth will indeed be burned up with fervent heat and be destroyed. As an aside, the Bible teaches that God is Living Intelligent Sentient Energy through which all matter was created. In this act, as described by the apostle Peter, of the burning up of the elements by fervent heat, the process is reversed whereby matter is once again converted back into the energy from which it originated. The fact remains that one day in the future this Earth will indeed be vaporized, literally! However, that day is not the same time as when Jesus Christ returns and of the end of this world. What we need to understand is what the disciples meant by the phrase, and of the end of the world?
The definition of 'WORLD' according to the Bible
The word 'World' in the context of the above scripture does not mean an end of the physical Earth but rather the end of a system or systems that govern and control the inhabitants of this present age. This present age may be defined as the period of time that began with the fall of man in the Garden of Eden to the time when Jesus Christ returns and wrests control of the government of this world from Satan. Satan is identified in the bible as the god of this world: what that means is that he is the god of the system (s) that governs this world. The system can be simply identified as the system of commerce that began back in the days of Babylon after the flood of Noah. In the present day this system is enshrined in merchant banking or investment banking as it is presently called. The merchant bankers of this world are literally the representatives of Satan since they control commerce on this Earth through a system devised by Satan himself. This is becoming very clear in these days because of the Economic chaos that is now engulfing the whole world. This orchestrated economic collapse is an early warning sign that Christ Jesus will indeed soon be returning and this system will forever be destroyed; the world will literally end as we presently know it. Under the rule and reign of Jesus Christ, commerce will not reign supreme; the insidious or rather satanic system of economic enslavement through perpetual usury, as devised by the merchant bankers, will be forever eliminated. This present economic turmoil is a necessary first step in tying all of the economies of the world together by first destroying all of the economies of the world together.
This world economic destruction must be centered upon the economy of the United States, which is the biggest economy of this world. This is the real reason for the globalization and internationalization of banking and trade all throughout the 20th century but at a much accelerated pace over the last 30 years. Therefore no matter what the rhetoric coming out of Washington or London or Beijing, there will be no solution presented that will take the world back to where it was at the end of the last century, or even at the end of last year (2012.)
Jesus did forewarn us that in these last days when the whore of Babylon system (Revelation 18) that has tormented mankind for almost 5000 years will be in its death throes there will be great tribulation upon the entire world.
The word TRIBULATION in the above scripture means
1. To crush,
2. Press down upon,
3. Compress, squeeze, as in a vice,
How many people worldwide are feeling economically crushed, squeezed, and in trouble, turmoil and affliction? I regret to say that things will only get worse, and worse, and worse…
The four horsemen of the Apocalypse are1. Economic collapse
3. Pandemic disease (s) and famine
4. Complete breakdown of social order
Once again I regret to inform my readers that it is not just the economy! Collapse of the social order is brewing across the globe as witnessed by recent protests in Greece, France, England, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia and other Eastern European nations. Since the article was originally written, we have witnessed the Arab Spring with Egypt, Tunisia, Morocco and other North Africa countries in great turmoil, and a state of revolution. A completely unjustified war has destroyed a once stable and prosperous Libya; Syria is in the throes of a brutal civil war that has been fomented by forces and peoples far beyond its own borders. Greece is fast becoming a third world nation, with Portugal and Spain, and even Italy not far behind. India and China are experiencing high crushing inflation. There are around two dozen mass protests across China on a daily basis against the regime that rewards a few handsomely while brutally crushing and exploiting the majority. Daily protests are also the norm in Brazil and other countries in Latin America. East African countries like Kenya, Uganda, and Sudan are experiencing more than their share of ‘Terroristic’, and revolutionary activity, as are some Far East countries like Philippines, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
Rage against the System is building like a volcano as more and more people lose their jobs and livelihood, and these eruptions will get more explosive with each passing year. Economic collapses always lead to social upheavals that are frequently masked by the powers that be by starting wars to divert attention away from domestic problems. The scale of this fully orchestrated economic collapse suggests a coming war that would involve the whole world since this economic problem is a global one, and on a scale that has never before been witnessed in history. Do the words of Jesus not ring true now that there will be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world? The vise has only just been begun to be tightened, wait and see what’s coming over the next months and years.
