we are nearing the end of the world , the prophecies in the bible are coming to pass

it says when the end of the world is near perilious times shall come, kingdoms shall rise against kngdoms and nations against nation, there will be strife and wars, earthquake and so on

it even say that this generation shall not till this prophecy come to pass

certainly the end of the world is near and the devil is striving to make the world worse and worst everyday, so that he will win more people to himself


@ goodguy

Can you give a precise and concise overview of what you want to look at, not just general statements. You cannot possibly make any comparisons based on this

Once more, what you've been summing up has happened continuously since Biblical times.

Can't you explain why the precise prophecies I mentioned before did not happen?

"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled" Matthew 24:34 (the end times)

"And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power." Mark 9:1


First, please sum up all these man made mishaps?

Second, we will compare them to man made mishaps in the past, normalising for populations size, so that we can look at their relative weight in a historical context

Third, we'll look at whether or not that ratio is increasing today, both in absolute and in relative terms

Then, and only then can you make a valid comparison.


All u've listed are just natural disasters. We're talking of various man-made mishaps that have befallen men. I'll advice you read the book of revelations. Though so many of these things happened in the past, we are now seeing more of it today. What does that tell us? - The end time is drawing near.


Total destruction by fire.

That's where this world is heading to.


All the behaviours you mentioned has always been exhibited by mankind since the dawn of time. Even the Bible has ample evidence of this.

The only reason why the evidence is all around us is that we have access to so much information because of the internet and 24 hour news stations. If something happens in the world today it is flashed around the world within minutes.

think of all the major disasters that have happened in the last 1000 years and what the people who lived during those times would have thought

Here's a brief list of such disasters (you can do a search on Google to get this info and more)

And this are just the ones recorded....


It's easy to believe that "the end of this age of grace is near." Indeed, the Bible refers to this age in which we're living as "the last days." The times described in II Timothy 3:1-5 certainly sound like Planet Earth circa the 1990's - "This know, also, that in the last days perilous times shall come, for men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God, having a form of godliness, but denying the power of it; from such turn away."

And Jesus' own words, as chronicled in Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 17 & 21, leave no doubt that we are living at the very threshold of cataclysmic change. We're told to watch for certain signs of the times: the advent of false prophets and widespread religious deception, international upheaval, an increase in great earthquakes, an onslaught of devastating plagues and famines and strange phenomena in the heavens and changing global weather patterns.

One hardly needs to be a Bible scholar or student of prophecy to see these signs in our world today. Just pick up your daily newspaper or turn on the television news! The evidence is all around us.


earthquakes, hurricanes

been happening since the begining of time, the mountains, volcanoes and the earth's natural features were created by these forces

islamic jihad suicide terrors

Islamic terrorists are just the latest in a long line of groups/people who have used this method of 'warfare'. From the Japanese kamikaze fighers to the tamil tigers. Even in Biblical times Samson killed himself in order to kill as many Philistines as possible.

Iran's plans to use nuclear weapons against enemies

They haven't even created the bombs yet, but wait a minute The US did use nuclear weapons twice on Japan during WW2 and the expected apocalypse did not happen

advances in technology thats bringing the us closer everyday

Since early man discovered fire, technology has always been with us and has continued to allow man to conquer and expand his environment.

incurable sickness and diseases

Most diseases started out as been incurable before someone eventually finds a cure or people develop immunity to it

Israel-Palestine Conflict

They've been killing themselves in that part of the world since biblical times (see old testament)

so the answer to your question about where the world is heading,? the same place it has always been heading since the begining of time...


Think about the all the previous centuries after the death of Christ. They have been saying this over and over again, with as many, if not more circumstantial evidence to prove their point.

And wasn't it prophecised that:

"Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled" Matthew 24:34 (the end times)

"And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power." Mark 9:1

It still hasn't happened
