You put your faith/trust in man/science - I'll put my faith/trust in God - He's just a wee bit Bigger...Happy Thanksgiving all !!

ANSWER #2 of 39

The Bible doesn't tell us 'when', but it describes the last days and indicates what happens to this earth in the book of Revelation.

ANSWER #3 of 39

As quoted above: 1 Thessalonians 5:2
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

From my Bible studies it indicates the first event to happen - Jesus returns to take those who are saved with Him 'in the twinkling of an eye' - Only God the Father knows the hour this occurs:

A simulation of that event:


ANSWER #4 of 39

If we can move away from all this biblical baloney for a moment...
The sun is halfway in its burning hydrogen to produce helium phase, which should go for another 4 billion years or so (although the sun will progressively get hotter over that time). When its core gets filled with helium it cannot fuse, the core will collapse, which will increase its temperature, up to the point helium can actually start fusing. But this will not last long, just a few million years. At that time, despite the core being smaller and more massive, the higher temperature inside will increase the sun's output, and the outer shell will expand, the sun will bloat out to a diameter about as large as the orbit Earth occupies (hence the earth will be scorched, burned, molten, vaporized) Or if a meteor big enough comes our way, it could destroy the Earth also. The surface of the Earth may be damaged by our Nuclear bombs too, but it won't end the world...It'll keep spinning.

ANSWER #5 of 39

>>>You put your faith/trust in man/science - I'll put my faith/trust in God - He's just a wee bit Bigger...Happy Thanksgiving all !!<<<

I'm sure God would be quite happy with many of the advances in science, especially when it comes to saving lives. I guess you don't go to anyone when your sick, just to church to be healed. Without science/man, a lot of the things you take for granted, just wouldn't exist. There is plenty God could be doing with all the power he apparently has, but in the end it's science and man that are left to pick up the pieces and save the lives he forgets about, no matter how BIG he is, he doesn't seem to be doing much for man or animals, the extinction rate is at an all time high, forests are being cleared faster than ever...where is he??? If God is coming to end everything, he may as well not bother, we're doing his work for him everyday...no matter how much you pray, and there's millions praying, somehow I don't think he is listening...the suffering continues. Am I wrong? Or can you show me Any proof otherwise? I promise to change my line of thought if you can...faith is a lazy way to say, oh everything will work out fine...trouble is, it isn't working.

ANSWER #6 of 39

The question was "When & how will the world end?" ...I answered it. Maybe the question should have been "When & how will mankind end?" Since this is the RELIGION section, not the science section. If God is willing to kill everyone and everything just because we humans don't follow this book written by MAN, so be it. Seems a waste of an amazing planet, God can't be that cruel...surely. Sounds more like an act of evil to me...we'll end up wiping ourselves out before God gets a chance anyway. Oh and about those doomsday movies...why do you think there arent any dinosaurs walking around??? Big chunks of rock & ice, that have been hitting Earth for millions of years...way before Christ, humans & dinosaurs were around to make assumptions. You don't have to be a science nut to understand the life of a star, they have been popping in and out of existance since the begining of the universe...we just happen to live next to one that is half way through it's life span.

*Here's an answer from an Islamic perspective. The last day will be on a friday, no date no time only the creator knows best.

- Minor signs
*For every man standing will be 50 women
*Increase on natural disasters eg earthquakes, floods etc
*Increase on adultery
*There will be prevalence of music with newly-invented musical instruments as well as dancing and singing
*The indescence of divorces would be on the increase

-Major signs
*At the time of Fajr (Dawn prayer) Eesa (Jesus) will descend with his hands on the shoulders of two angels.

*There are many more major signs but I would have to put them in order before I would come to the one above.

*All the signs are in the Quran (The Holy Book of Islam). NO ONE has ever edited out anything from the Quran.

*The Quran has been around for hundreds of years and it can be compaired to one that is a hundred years old to one that is recent to prove the statement above.

*Even scientists have turned to the Quran in terms of using it as refference to what they have come to find in their research. And like I said before the Quran was written hundreds of years of ago.

ANSWER #8 of 39

The 2012 fanatics are out in force. I don't believe 99% of it; however, a digging through NASA.GOV was very scary.

Do a search of 2012 on Nasa's site.

The following will for sure occur in 2012 per NASA. The full affect is not known.

Jupiter will opposition
Venus will transition the Sun
Eros will do a flyby
Ciris will do a flyby (maybe misspelled)
The Suns magnetic poles will reverse (started already)
The worst Solar Storms ever. Solar Flares.

And Apophus 99942 will do a flyby.

The strange thing is that NASA talks about all of these separately and don't mention what the affects of all of these happening at the same time would be.

Nasa speaks of Asteroid 99942 coming close enough in 2029 for Earth's gravity to tug on it causing it to impact in 2036.

However, they do not mention the 2012 flyby except to say they can get a better look at it and can make more predictions at that time.

They don't mention what the effects of all these celestial bodies will have on Apophus. They mention how the sun will affect it and cause it to spin, but they don't say what the Solar storms affect on it will be.

Either way all of the celestial bodies intersecting at the same time will have gravitational affect on the weather and the tides. A post from someone stated gravity will not affect us, not true. The tides are affected by the moons gravity. Venus will transition between the sun and the Earth, this gravity will affect us. Eros and Ciris may not be big enough for their gravity to affect us, but will the gravity of Jupiter and Venus passing their closest to us rip them apart and shower debris on the Earth? Very possible. Asteroid 99942 will pass below the satellite orbit, not until 2029 by NASA's account. But will these celestial alignments break it up, or pull it towards us, or the moon.

The solar storms will knock out satellites and computers globally. Will the power stay on? Will the fire control computers still work?

These events could have a very dramatic impact on our ecosystem. It would be very hard to prepare yourself for such a global disruption.

As for planet X, I have found nothing on NASA's site about Planet X. This is supposed to be a Brown Dwarf Star (why you can't see it clearly) that is on an elliptical orbit around our solar system and does a flyby every so often and destroys life on Earth. There is nothing to substantiate this and could just be a guy trying to sell a book, title Planet X. His publishing company did a video to scare people into buying the book.

Nasa did however, place an Infrared Satellite (would be needed to see the brown dwarf) into orbit and is scanning our solar system with it.

ANSWER #14 of 39

Not even Jesus knows the time of Destruction. Only the Father in Heaven knows and I really doubt we are going to have warning signs Jesus will come like a thief in the night, Without warning.
1 Thessalonians 5:2
For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

ANSWER #15 of 39

It does not matter, when or how the end will come... what matter is whether or not we are prepared for it... the question is :

ANSWER #16 of 39

The world is ending right now.

ANSWER #17 of 39

read the bible

ANSWER #18 of 39

The people who are saying that no-one knows must be right, because that's what Jesus said himself:

“No-one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."

That's from Matthew 24:36

I can see why people try to work it out - it's like reading the last page of the book before we start the story, isn't it? But there's clearly no point.

ANSWER #37 of 39

Haha and read The Book of Revelation.

ANSWER #38 of 39

This covers several questions I've seen asked here:
verse 21:1 covers what happens to earth
verse 20:10 covers what happens to the devil
verse 20:12 mentions the 'Book of Life' where those
saved names are written
verse 20:15 those names not found
Hope this helps to clarify.

Rev 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Rev 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

Rev 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

Rev 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.

ANSWER #39 of 39

You can mock. make fun of, attempt to belittle God but it doesn't change that fact that He's in charge and indeed for those who accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, everything will work out fine - for they are Heaven-bound ! - it's every mans choice to either accept or reject this offer of Salvation - you can't 'ride the fence', won't work - God loved us sooo much He provided a WAY - Jesus - He didn't have to - I hope you make the right choice before it's too late...Take care !!

I sincerely hope before you take your last breath, your name will be recorded in 'the book of Life' so you'll have an abundant life here on earth and won't have to experience 'the second death' at Judgement Day.

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
