Some have scheduled the end of the world for Saturday, May 21st. There have been others throughout our history that knew the moment (or thought they did) that the world was going to end. However, hundreds of dates have been set, come, and gone with no sign of Christ’s returning.
I’m not sure if there is another date between May 21st and December 2012 for the end of the world but as long as humans are around, there will be some who speculate about it.
Even with all our knowledge and technology, we don’t know when the world will end. We do know a few things:
Times are bad.
People are hurting and hungry.
The institution of marriage is in danger.
Too many daddies have left and too many moms just don’t care.
The world is a dark and broken place but there is One who overcame.
There is One who loves us in spite of us.
There is One who will come again. We may not know the exact day and time and really, it doesn’t matter. What does matter is that He lives, He reigns, and He will return.
The date isn’t important, whether we’re ready or not, is.
"But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. Matthew 24:36
