End of the World!

By: Dodong Baguiz

It is a very sad thing to think that the world where we enjoy living is going to have an end. This world is a very nice place to stay, especially if you are benefiting from the abundance of good things. But God has warned through the books he left with his prophets and “anointed one” who he has dictated during every span of time that he has been with men.  Life is short, although man likes it very much. That is why nobody wants to die, and even the disabled and those very old people who could hardly walk still strive hard, so that he may remain alive.

Rarely can you find a man in the verge of death who is happy, and every time someone dies, those left behind are in deep sorrow and grief. And so, man finds a way to prevent death through studies and research on how to cure the illness in order to avoid death. But death is designated for all that has life; hence it will certainly take place.

Because man doesn’t like death, there is competition in life on how to preserve longevity, and each one tries to stay ahead of the other in acquiring worldly knowledge and wealth.  Those who have these things believe that he has the power to delay or prevent all that he doesn’t want to happen in the life of man.  However, death continues to triumph until this time.

Because of the excessive efforts by man for worldly things, he didn’t realize that he has already gone astray from the path of the Lord. He forgot that he has obligation to do, being a creation made in the likeness of God.  Because of this, God became angry and he regretted that he created man.  Until He annihilated man and this happened at the time of Noah.  In the book of GENESIS 6:5, 6, 7 these are written; “Yahweh saw how great the wickedness of man on the earth was and that evil always prevail in his heart. Yahweh regretted having created man on the earth and his heart grieved. He said, “I will destroy man whom I created and blot him out from the face of the earth, as well as the beasts, creeping creatures and birds, for I am sorry I made them.”

Since the time mankind was exterminated, they grew again through the people who were spared death – the family of Noah. The people multiplied and the world was filled again. Then men forgot the covenant that was left by God, those men was supposed to follow, and men became bad again.  And at the time of our Lord Jesus Christ, He told the world that there will be a judgment for the living and the dead, because of the extreme pride and wickedness of men.

The last book of the Bible, the REVELATION mentioned the many prophesies that are frightening because these warned about the judgment of mankind and the end of the world. The seven plagues were outlined as the end. That is why many Christians avoid reading the Book of Revelation.   In the book of REVELATION 15:1 this is written; “Then I saw in the sky another mysterious sight, great and amazing. There were seven angels with seven plagues, which are the last ones, because they are the final expression of God’s anger.” Additionally, the book of REVELATION 16:1 says:  “Then I heard a loud voice speaking from the temple to the seven angels: “Go and pour out the seven bowls of God’s anger on the earth! This is very dreadful, especially if we watch the present happenings in our midst.  There are many shocking incidents, and tragedies that coincide with the 7-plagues that are written in the Bible. If we examine these calamities, there are already six (6) plagues out of the seven (7) plagues that took place. And the seventh plague is going to happen soon, which will end life on this earth.

In the book of REVELATION 16:17-21 these are written; “Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven,  from the throne saying, “It is done!”. And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such mighty and terrible earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. And huge hailstones from heaven fell upon men; each hailstone about 100 lbs. Men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague *was extremely severe.”

If we try to figure out in our mind the happenings in the said Bible passage, it is extremely frightening. Surely, the people has no way to escape, because the whole world will be shaken by the strong earthquake, the sea will be swelling (TSUNAMI), and flooding of the earth’s surface, that will result in billions of people dead.

This Bible passage says that man curses God while the world is swaying due to the strong earthquake.  In what way that man blasphemed God?  God is blasphemed by man through the prayers coming from the wrong teaching. There is no person on earth who will not pray during a calamity. It is normal for a man to call the Lord especially if he is in the verge of death. And the Bible says that man blasphemed God while the hails of ice keep falling from the sky. The prayer that originated from someone who is not “anointed” or commanded by God is blasphemy for the Lord.

According to what is written in the book of JEREMIAH 25:33 that says:  “And those slain by the Lord shall be from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, gathered, or buried; they shall be like dung on the face of the ground.”  These people surely belong to various religious groups, which show that their prayers came from a wrong teaching. And that is why they were killed by God.  This is certainly the end of the world!   Let us remember that this is going to happen soon, as the signs are already here.
