Theme Scripture: Psalms 46:1-2
Talking about the end of the world is scary. The amazing thing is that predicting it has been going on for thousands of years. Quoting a few lines from a 2009 Smithsonian Magazine article: “An Assyrian clay tablet dating to around 2800 B.C. bears the inscription: Our Earth is degenerate in these later days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book and the end of the world is evidently approaching." So, does the Bible actually tell us how the world will end? We do know it does give us prophecies that describe how the world will dramatically change. We are not piling on to the mountain of end-of-the-world predictions here; instead we are seeking to interpret world-changing events as prophesied in Scripture.
