When news of strange events from around the world begins pouring in, then the end has come. What it will look like no one really knows. People speculate and make educated guesses and fanciful claims, but no one knows.
The crazy dude on the street corner with the card board sign that reads, “The End is Near,” still exists. He has simply taken on a different form. Now those claiming the end is at hand have become someone else. They are supposed to have validity. Now instead of the homeless dude or the loud, street corner evangelist, the end is being prophesied by ancient peoples that we cannot ask how they came up with the date. The end is being predicted by scientists with mega-computers that somehow predict the future and whose logarithms we cannot comprehend. Are they warning us of impending doom or asking us to buy stock in their company?
We cannot put our faith in Nostradamus or the Mayans or the scientists when it comes to the end of the world predictions. I cannot give them to you. The Bible will not tell you. Even Jesus Himself cannot tell you when the end will come because we simply do not know. It is coming, though. It is a question of when. The only Being in all the universe that can rightly know the exact moment of the End is God.”No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” (Matt 24:36 / Mark 13:32) As soon as mortal man puts a date or label on a particular day, that cannot be the day because then we know.
“For you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.” (1 Thes 5:2) The day will surprise us. It will happen when we least expect it not when someone, regardless of validity, predicts it because then we will all know. I would say, beware anyone who claims to know the exact date and time. They just may be trying to sell you something.
