So, what do I believe about the end of the world? (I will go with universe on this one for you optimists out there.
The Universe will end as it began. Unexplainably by any scientific method one day it will just be gone. Just as I believe that there was nothing, and then out of that nothing came the universe, whether by a big bang or if it just appeared I don't care to argue, I believe that when the time comes the universe will simply cease to exist.
Of course I have a biblical backup for my position, I am sure nobody is suprised.
The final goal and expectation of the Christian faith is a new, transformed, and redeemed world where Jesus Christ lives with his people and righteousness dwells in holy perfection.
In order to erase all traces of sin, there will be a destruction of all the earth, stars and galaxies. Heven and Earth will be shaken and will vanish like a vapor, the stars will be dissolved and the elements destroyed.
After that there will be a new Heaven and a new Earth, but that would be another thread.
So it would not matter where we lived in the Universe or how many planets we inhabited. It is all going to dissapear. The thread does not have to end there, if you have your own thoughts on how it will all end that has not been put up so far, chime in. I will stand by my belief, and truthfully it is no less valid than any other put forth here.
For the verses that my opinion was derived from look at:
Isaiah 34:4; 51:6; 65:17; 66:22
Hebrews 1:12; 12:26-28
2 Peter 3:7-13
I will write more about this as I get time. I know some of you don't care, and that is fine. But for those who are interested I am going to write what I see as the steps leading up to the end. I have no time where the steps will happen. I am just going to try to put them in order and you can draw any parallels you like or ignore the whole thing, you have the mouse vote with your clicking!
