Well, we’re all still here and the Mayan calendar expired. There was so much hoopla around the “end of the world” being at hand and it wasn’t even a “religious” event.
As a Christian, it confused me when I heard other Christians asking “could this be ‘it?'”
No Christians — l refer you to the texts in the Bible that point to the time of the end but specifically to Matthew 24:36-42 where it says:
“But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.”
(Emphasis in black is mine.)
Things seem to be falling apart in our world and we keep rushing around trying to fix everything that is going wrong. But things happen much too quickly and there is just no way we can make provision to prevent every evil thing from happening.
So, we wait. Tears will be shed and hearts will be heavy with sorrow, but we still wait. We wait for the return of Christ so that we can leave this world and go to a place called heaven.
