Are we talking Nuclear holocaust, World War 3, or zombie apocalypse? Either way, I want Rick Grimes at the helm! I highly doubt the end of the world will be anyday soon. Best of luck to you.

The world doesn't end ... We just move it to a different server and upgrade the software.

Walt, The New Yorker is about nine months ahead of you on that. They've upgraded the Bible software and come up with a whole set of different outcomes. I think you'd enjoy this article: http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/24/bible-system-updates

The main thing with  Life and Nature is that everything has an expiration date but what happens on that date, no one knows how the world will end. Only God knows this for sure but right now, mankind is doing a real good job of ending the world ourselves unfortunately.  So is the end of the world upon us here, who knows!  But if we do have a sayso in the outcome here, we ,  will have to unite and either fight or die against all this evil in the world but either way, we have to try and then believe and pray for Gods help here

This is the answer I gave here 4 years ago:

"That depends on what you mean by "end". One day, billions of years in the future, our sun will become a red giant and our current orbit will actually place the earth inside the sun. Will that be the end?

It is possible that still further billions of years in the future our solar system will end up crushed into nothingness in the black hole at the centre of our galaxy. Is that the end you are thinking of?

Or do you mean the next natural disaster, like an asteroid or comet hitting the earth, causing a global extinction event, like the one that put an end to the dinosaurs? Is that the sort of end you mean?

Or, will man's stupidity cause an environmental disaster, thus putting an end to all human life on the planet? How about that for an end?

Lots of possible ends and much cleverer people than me cannot answer your question."

Many "hard times" will occur prior to the "end", as Jenn Taylor points out, with her provided scripture, above.

According to the Bible, the "end" of the world as humans know it, today, involves God's identity, name, and a serious "controversy" between God and those who are ignoring Him, and His directives. Those who are willingly responding to God, are also involved:

“For look! The day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the presumptuous ones and all those practicing wickedness will become like stubble. The coming day will certainly devour them,” says Jehovah of armies, “and it will leave them neither root nor branch. But on you who honor* my name, the sun of righteousness will shine, with healing in its rays; and you will skip about like fattened calves.”- Malachi 4:1-2

"And he will turn the hearts of fathers back toward sons, and the hearts of sons back toward fathers, so that he may not come and strike the earth, devoting it to destruction.”

"A noise will resound to the ends of the earth, For Jehovah has a controversy with the nations. He will personally pass judgment on all humans. And he will put the wicked to the sword,’ declares Jehovah."- Jeremiah 25:31

"In the final part of the days, The mountain of the house of Jehovah Will become firmly established above the top of the mountains, and it will be raised up above the hills,And to it peoples will stream.And many nations will go and say: “Come, let us go up to the mountain of Jehovah. And to the house of the God of Jacob. He will instruct us about his ways, And we will walk in his paths.”- Micah 4:1-2

Like many fields, it requires an interest, a proper background, and time devoted to extensive examination. Or- like mathematics- it won't make any sense.

OK, so only people with "a proper background" may understand?

It helps.
But interest and attitude go a lot further.

And this is like the 9th or 10th time in my lifetime (I'm 62) that the world was coming to an end.

I don't plan on it happening anytime soon... So I don't think about it. You'd get the same outcome either way, when the world ends, you die. Even if the world won't end in your lifetime, you still die ;)

My thoughts are... None of us know when, so why think about things beyond our control? Just live, do what makes you happy , (as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else) and focus on what we can do right now. Because what we don't know isn't going to help us.

I have none, other than I doubt it will happen in my lifetime.But if it does, it doesn't do any good to worry about it. I just try to live my life the best I can and whatever happens, happens.

The way things are today are not what God purposed. Man has made the claim that they don't need their creator and would be better off without him. Well what we see today is mounting evidence that they need their creator. Once the point has been made to our Creator's satisfaction, he will intercede and bring this nonsense to an end and realize his intended purpose for the earth. 

Man will not have the luxury of doing this to himself. Our creator  promises this at Rev 11:18 "But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time came for the dead to be judged and to reward your slaves the prophets and the holy ones and those fearing your name, and the small and the great, and to BRING TO RUIN THOSE RUINING THE EARTH.

That text expresses Jehovah's displeasure with those destroying His creation, and our habitat; and also expresses God's intention to restore things. Nice quote, that has a serious prophetic significance.

In practical terms, I think t.s.eliot got it right. It's not going to go with a bang but with a whimper. Too many people doing too many thoughtless things will eventually make the planet virtually uninhabitable -- either through too much pollution, too few resources, or a combination of both.

In the long term it'll be swallowed up when the sun goes nova.

And, unless Darth Vader turns up with his planet-killer, I don't see any other ways for the world to end.

I believe the end of this world is coming just as God's Word, the bible has foretold. By all accounts, the end of this system is rapidly approaching very soon. When Jesus disciples asked him for a sign indicating the conclusion of the system of things, Jesus responded by telling them a number of events that would take place during that time. Matthew 24:7 highlights just  a few. Interestingly, all of the things foretold to happen are taking place. Even on a social level, 2 Timothy 3:1-5 indicates what peoples attitudes will be like in the last days. Every attitude described there is on full display in the world that we live in regardless of the location or culture. 

All of these indicators convince me of the accuracy and fulfillment of God's Word. Therefore, while the end is rapidly approaching, God is lovingly providing mankind with the opportunity to learn about Him and repent as stated at 2 Peter 3:9. Such ones who do so will be able to benefit from the fulfillment of The wonderful promises found in God's Word, the bible at Psalm 37:9-11, 29 & Revelation 21:3,4.

There are many theories about that and interestingly enough most are very plausible.  Believe it or not, but our environment is very delicate because it involves an element of balance.  Throughout millions of years of evolution, our planet has metamorphised in this journey, shifting and changing not only it's phyisical appearance, but every life form that live on it.

In that time .. Our planet has endured catastrophic events like the ice age, shifting continents,  fault line within each continent, volcanic erruption, errosion, storms .. The list is endless of the constant barrage of destructive forces.  However .. One we have highly underestimated is the destructive forces of ONE entity that could plausibly cause an entire eco system collapse.


We are already experiencing the side effect of our human race on this planet..Polution on a global scale that not only is affecting our comfort on this rock .. But is changing weather patterns which could cause a severe change in our way of life, if not end it.

The one that I find most disturbing is the growing concern not about where to live or the air we breath .. But .. A life sustaining substance that we simply can't 're-invent' or replace..WATER.  Did you know out of the few water sheds this globe has to offer us .. That provides us with potable water .. Is decreasing in size?  Decreasing because it has become so tainted with contaminant that it can never be 'healed'. What does that tell you? Without water, not only drinking water .. But water to grow crops ( our global food source) and green plants to provide the neccessary components in the air we breath could be easily wiped out .. And will take every living, breathing creature with it.  Just think .. No plants means no animals, no humans .. No life.

In the meantime .. don't be surprised when water becomes the most desired commodity to be had on this planet .. My guess is, wars will be fought over it .. not oil .. but WATER .. yep pure, drinkable, life sustaining WATER!

I believe that we should not be afraid or terrified when the end of the world does come. Why? Because this wicked world in which we live in is soon to be replaced by the rule of the perfect Kingdom of God, for which Jesus taught his followers to pray. (Matthew 6:9, 10)

All of us who are living will then experience what the psalmist said of Jehovah: “You open your hand and satisfy the desire of every living thing.” (Psalm 145:16) No more hunger: The earth will be restored to an ecological balance and produce abundantly. (Psalm 72:16) No more homeless people: “They will certainly build houses and have occupancy,” and each one will sit “under his vine and under his fig tree, and there will be no one making them afraid.” (Isaiah 65:21, 22; Micah 4:4) No more fear: There will be no war, violence, or crime. (Psalm 46:8, 9; Proverbs 2:22) “The whole earth now rest, free of disturbance. People cry out for joy.” (Isaiah 14:7)

I once read an article about 12 ways that researchers think humanity's time on this planet might come to an end, and they're all pretty predictable...climate change, nuclear warfare, super volcanoes, asteroids, global pandemic, even the threat from artificial intelligence.

I have a feeling it'll likely be a combination of multiple things that puts an end to human life on Earth, and it might be a drawn-out and long affair, rather than a single event that wipes us all out.

For example, imagine a world where the population continues to grow while resources are depleting - coupled with a warming environment, this would be the perfect setting for disagreements between nations.

War, disease, and who knows what else.

Hopefully, by then we'll hopefully have found a way to condense humans into some sort of nano-robot hybrid, and we can blast off into space and continue our existence in a different form, on a different planet.
