The world is coming to an end! Or at least that’s what the Mayans have people thinking. I have been reading the newspaper and seeing all the posts on social media networks today and I can’t believe that people are really believing that the world is coming to an end tomorrow. Twitter has had #endoftheworldconfessions trending all day. All awhile I have been sitting here thinking why in the ham sandwich are we listening to the Mayans anyway? Seriously who died and made them the authority on predictions? Oh wait…they died! I wonder if they predicted their own deaths too. Haven’t we already play this game a few times? I’m pretty sure that the Apocalypse has been predicted at least a couple dozen times and yet WE ARE STILL HERE! So for all of you who are fearful about the existence of the world tomorrow- I have 2 words for you:
You may wonder -how is she so calm about this situation? Well let me refer you to a Bible verse that explains it all. Matthew 24:36 (KJV) clearly states: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only” . The Father- as in God, the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, The Almighty One–ummmm….not the Mayans! So unless God decides that He wants to end the world tomorrow… then I think we are safe for another day. Another reason I am not concerned is because of the fact that I understand that we need to be ready at all times for the Lord ‘s return.
Matthew 24:42 states “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. 43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
