With all the crazy things going on in the world this year 2020, many people think we are reaching the end of our journey, as reported in the article below. But is it really?
The rapture and apocalypse are coming soon and can happen throughout life, say some conspiracy theorists.
This year is becoming an apocalyptic’s dream, with a series of doomsday events. The year 2020 began with the threat of the third world war and with Australia on fire. Things have not improved, as the entire planet has been plagued by the coronavirus, in what at times seems to be the end of the world, or at least the end of normality as we know it.
This led to a series of apocalyptic predictions, including the supposed end of the world on June 21, according to a mayan calendar review.
However, it came and went, but some conspiracy theorists believe that the end of the world has been underway for more than 2,000 years.
The end of the world began 2,000 years ago, when Jesus Christ walked the earth, and the rapture is near, certain sectors of the Christian community fear it.
They argue that God does not work on the same time scale as humans, and the signs of the apocalypse started in the New Testament, and they are coming to an end.
The extraordinary claims come from the website Christianity.com, which declares:
You and I have an extraordinary opportunity not only to witness, but also to participate.
However, the website does not offer any indication of what the signs of the apocalypse are or a specific timeline for when this might happen.
The website Christianity.com said:
All New Testament writers are in unison in the belief that the appearance of Christ was the sign that God was acting in time and space to make things right.
Jesus’ own miracles and exorcisms of demons become visible evidence that the restoration of God’s good world is underway.
Peter linked the events of Pentecost to the prophecy of Joel, which begins: ‘And it will be in the last days that I will pour out my Spirit on all mankind. . . (Acts 2:16).
In Peter’s opinion, the last few days had begun. When the story of redemption comes to an end and the last pages are written, you and I have an extraordinary opportunity not only to witness it, but to participate in it.
Knowing that we are players on the stage of our Creator and that the final curtain will close soon should spark our hope and focus our vision as nothing can.
May this firm hope lead us all to encourage those around us’ and, even more, when you see the day approaching ‘(Hebrews 10:25).’
