Signs of Doomsday that have come true
In the 2012 a very popular story about Mayan calendar has become actual again – the prophecy about the end of the world, the greatest catastrophe that can wipe down the humanity. People don’t have the possibility to predict the future and they cannot know when will come to the end of the world as we know it today. However, this does not make the story any less popular. It is interesting, however, that even in the most represented religions in our world – Christianity and Islam, say that the end is very close!
It is interesting that some of these signs actually came true!
In The Bible, we have among other things, speech about last days: people will become envious, hateful, selfish, they will not respect their parents, they will be money loving, pleasure enjoying etc.
Many will agree that this is a fairly good description of the world we live in today.
The spread of immorality
You could say that we witness once sign more, given the huge rise in immoral behavior. Sexuality has become widely open and people are freely discussing their choices and pleasures, instead of keeping them behind closed doors.
On the other hand, according to the Christian belief, the signs of Resurrection Day will involve astronomical nature, but also a variety of natural disasters, which are really all over. It’s an interesting fact that in spite of the increase of bad behavior, the God’s word will be spread throughout the world – and this is still the case today.
In Islam, a direct sign of the end of the world is that men will meet men and women will meet women – which of course we are witnessing today.
Time will also pass quickly – but doesn’t that remind us all that this is the case?! Christianity and Islam leave no doubt that the judgment day is near:
The Bible predicts about the last days and in the Old Testament (e.g. By Daniel the prophet) and in the New
Testament, a detailed description of the last days was given in John in his Revelation.
It is said that we would not know when the Son of God would come, we would have to wait for his return, but when he came to the Earth again, he would be judging everyone and no one would be spared.
We all know that we must one day die and through this death we leave this world. The Lord Jesus promises to those who believe, through death – which is called the first death – leaving without judgment to eternal life with him. Those who do not believe, go through the second death, and it is eternal separation from God, eternal ruin. Therefore, according to the Bible, there is a first resurrection, when the resurrected believers go to eternal life, and the second resurrection, when the resurrected unbelievers go to eternal perdition. That’s why in the Bible it’s said that blessed is the one who is the part in the first resurrection.
