It's been on the news lately about people counting down to "the end of the world."
Those people are wasting their time. The world won't end during our lifetimes. If you're alive now, you won't be alive when the world ends.
The Bible says, "No man knows the day nor the hour when the Son of Man comes."
Isn't it the Mayan calendar that predicts the end of the world in 2012? Nonsense. The world won't end this year.
Before the end of the world, there'll be seven years of Great Tribulation. And the Great Tribulation hasn't started yet, a period of time when the earth is ruled by "The Beast" spoken of in Daniel, also called the Antichrist in the book of Revelation.
That person has not yet become known on the world scene, although he may be alive at this time, but hasn't yet come into the office as the world ruler. There is no person yet who is ruler of the world.
After the Great Tribulation, the Lord Jesus Christ will rule the world for a thousand years.
So then, the earliest that the world can end is one thousand seven years from now, and that's if the Great Tribulation starts immediately, which seems rather unlikely.
