When Will The World End?

Jesus’s disciples asked Him for signs of “the end of the world.” Jesus didn’t give a date, But He did a prophetic signs we should watch to be ready.

There are many ideas about when the world will end, and even about what the end of the world and the end times and mean.

For many, it’s a joke, Cartoonists draw a strange man wearing a sandwich board sign proclaiming “The end is nigh” to the y heeding crowds on a busy big city street.

But it’s not just kook’s and religious people talking about the end of the world. Scientists and politician throw around the phrase as well. Headlines discuss “ here’s how do you put in Hocking predicted the world will end” and “ how will the world end? Expert reveal 9 Most likely Way humans will be wiped out.”

Existential Threats And The End Of The World

Human survival in the world as we know it are truly under threat. Make passionate and even desperate people are warning and trying to reverse which ever of the dangers you are existence seems most real to them. But there is little agreement and precious little action. The dangers row worse, and most people use their best to put them out of their mind.

But is there definitive answers about what is going to happen and when? Is there a real Lucian to prevent human extinction?

Why not consider the source that most likely gave us the term end of the world and see what it says?

Where The Term End Of The World Came From

Before there was a scientific or political interest in the end of the world, there was a religious one, based on the wording of the most influential English translation of the Bible.

The king James version of the Bible there are 1611 uses the expression of the end of the world seven times. Four of these are in the book of Matthew, referring to the prophetic and times. In Psalms 19:4 and Isaiah 62:11, “ end of the world” instead has the connotation “to all parts of the world.”

In the Bible, what does “end of the world” mean? And when did Jesus say it would come?

The Disciples Asked Jesus About The End Of The World

Jesus had warned His disciples that the Most magnificent structure of the nation and religion was going to be totally destroyed (Matthew 24:2). They were understandingly concerned and wanted to know when this would take place. They connected His prediction of the destruction of the temple with other predictions that He will come again at the end time. So they approached Him.

“And as He sat upon the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall do you think of me? And what shall be the sign of you coming, and of the end of the World? (Matthew 24:3).

End Of The World Means End Of Age

If you check other, more modern translations of the Bible, you will see that most of them translate the last phrase as “end of the age.”

In the Greek Bible the word used is aion, which here means an age – specifically, the time of man’s misrule that will end when Jesus return.

The disciples were asking about the time when Jesus will return to end humanities a obstruction and begin the rule of the Kingdom of God over earth.

What Are The Signs Of The End Of The World?

In Matthew 24 I just gave many signs that would lead to His return, including His promise that the good news about God’s kingdom would be shared around this world- a world steeped in bad news.

Jesus said,“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” (Matthew 24:14).

The good news is that, though Jesus will come back during a time of unparalleled “great tribulation “ when humanity is at the brink of self-annihilation, he will return and save humanity (Matthew 24:21-22).

The signs Jesus gave include religious deception, wars and rumors of wars, famine, disease, epidemics and much more.

We can look at all of Jesus’s prophetic signs and know we are very close to the end, but Jesus said we will not know the day or the hour (Matthew 24:36).

What Does Jesus Want Us To Do Until The End Of The World?

So what did Jesus tell us to do? At the end of Luke’s account of the same prophecy, Jesus warned:

But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day will come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth.

Watch therefore, and pray all week that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man (Jesus Christ).

Luke 21:34-36

Jesus compared the end times with the days of Noah, when most people ignored Noah’s warnings and were completely unprepared for the flood.

The Parable Of Tares And The End Of The World

His parable of the wheat and the tares (weeds). This parable what about how God sows His truth in this world and prepares people for His Kingdom, while Satan sows lies the produce people who pretend to follow God but follow Satan instead.

The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Matthew 13: 39-49

To Be Truly Ready For Christ’s Return, We Must Be Sure We Are Living As He Lived And Doing What Is Pleasing To Him.

Yes can also serve as a sober warning two questions for you not for themselves into thinking they’re OK just because they attend church or consider themselves Christians. Satan is the master of deception. Should be ready for Christ’s return, we must be sure we are living as He lived and doing what pleases Him.

Jesus Christ’s Words Of Reassurance About The End Of The World

In what has come to be known as the great commission, Jesus gave His followers a job to do before His return and Hegave us encouragement as well.

Jesus said to go and “teaching all nations, baptizing them and teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and, lo I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen” (Matthew 28:20).
