The Climax of History

According to the signs that God said would precede Christ's coming, that time could be any day, as these signs of the end times are now "all standing up at once." As God seemed to indicate through Daniel 2,500 years ago, the end times will be marked by a time when "many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase."15

We know the present world system cannot last forever. For instance, every hour, 9,584 babies are being born in today's world. That's a staggering 230,000 every single day!

It doesn't seem so long ago that the world's population hit the four billion mark. Today, it is over six billion and increasing at an incredible rate! According to the International Programs Center, U.S. Bureau of the Census, the total population of the World, projected to 3/19/01 was 6,135,589,280. In 2010 it was estimated at 6,871,600,000.

Obviously, the world population cannot keep doing this and survive. Something of major dimension must happen at some time in the future. Of that we can be certain.

Every hour, 9,584 babies are being
born in today's world. That's a
staggering 230,000 every single day!

Predictions warn that there will not be enough jobs, housing or food. Poverty will be rampant. Increased pollution may bring on the plagues the Bible seems to indicate will mark the end of the world. The gap between the "haves" and the "have-nots" will widen, with the "have-nots" becoming more and more hostile towards the "haves." Crime will increase. War, terrorism, and a nuclear holocaust will become ever-increasing threats.

While many people don't accept all of what God's Word, the Bible, claims, it is fascinating to read what it predicts and says about the coming world climax, especially about Jesus Christ.

God has repeatedly warned us about the end of the world as we know it, which will be climaxed by the return of his Son, Jesus Christ. We have this promise. We have all the proof we need. But most important of all, are we prepared for his coming?

Christ said that at that time two people would be in a field: one would be taken, the other left behind.16 If he should come today, would you be taken or left behind?

"Be ready," Jesus said, "for when you are not even thinking about it, suddenly and unexpectedly, I will come.17 You can be ready for Christ's return by responding to his call to accept him as your personal Lord and Savior. For help, please click on the God's Invitation link below.
