The Bible teaches no end to the literal physical earth
           Nearly every year some false prophet comes along and predicts the end of the world. To some this may be frightening; to others there is great speculation; and to those who study their bible it is utter non-sense. The avid bible student knows that the bible does not teach an ending to this literal physical earth. However; the majority of the Christian population believes that the world will come to an end someday. They get this motion from reading the bible because of the mere fact very few ever study the bible. The only way to get the true meaning of the book is to study it and not simply read it. Even in the corporate world those who receive contracts cannot get the real meaning of a contract unless they study it. To just read a contract could bring about unwarranted consequences that could be avoided by studying it.
             Let's say that the bible is the contract that God has given to mankind. It would take to reason that I must study that contract(bible) to get the true meaning. In the majority of my ideology I give credence to the notion of study, study, and more study. There is no way to gain the knowledge that God anticipated for us to have about His book from just listening to a preacher every other Sunday and calling that biblically sound understanding. No way.
         In this edition of THE REDEEMER Magazine you will find the tools to help you understand the logic behind the physical earth never having an ending. I guarantee this edition will make more sense to you than anything you ever read. However; you must take time to study. This edition will help bring the scriptures alive to you.
          Most Christians like to say " no man know the day or hour" when the world will end.  Often times this is quoted from Matthew  Mat 25:13: Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Howbeit; most Christians like to associate the Return of Christ with the End of the physical world. The bible does  not teach that. What the bible does teach is that Jesus' return is associated with the end of the Old Covenant age and when the power of the Holy people was scattered(Daniel 12-7). There was but one Holy people and there was one Old Covenant age. Both of which came to fruition in 70 AD when the Roman army scattered the power of the Holy People. The power of the Holy people being scattered thereby bringing the demise of the Old Covenant ways and ushering in the New Covenant expectations which are so eloquently published in the book of Hebrews. God promised a New Covenant thereby doing away with the Old. Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away. The Old Covenant world/age is the world that no man knew the hour or day when it would end. Jesus did give us the generation that it would happen in and of course it ended in Jesus generation along with the first century Christians. Matthew 24:34 Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass till all these things be fulfilled. Clearly when this verse is read in its proper context (especially to whom Jesus is speaking to); there is no doubt that Jesus meant His generation.
      In my studies I am rather confident that the bible does not teach an end to this physical earth. Ecclesiastes 1:4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever. If we are to believe what the scriptures teaches we cannot be swayed by false prophets whose only mission is to deceive.
       I cordially invite you to study this issue of THE REDEEMER Magazine. I am pretty sure it will enhance your knowledge on the subject of “the world coming to an end.” The essence of understanding this subject matter is to understand that we Christians today must accept the promises that God has given us of a better way of living and in His promise to make all things new.
      In our western mind-set it is hard for us to grasp and understand the things that were pertinent to those who lived during the days when the Bible was written. One of my favorite scriptures is the one where Jesus says: during the destruction of Jerusalem everything that was written or prophesied would be fulfilled. Luke 21:22  For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled. This is written in the book of Luke where the destruction of Jerusalem is foretold.
      Why do we so blatantly ignore and deny scriptures? Why can’t we take the bible at its word if we profess to be bible believing Christians? A lot of us comes from a time where we were never taught how to study. Still today if one does not take it upon his own to study they will still ignore and deny because that aptitude for understanding is not there. No one has your best interest at heart other than you.
       The study of this subject matter will help alleviate fears that some Christians may have concerning the world coming to an end in their lifetime. For those of you who have this fear do not fret because according to the bible this earth abides forever. God is in control; no matter how many atomic bombs or nuclear blasts that can be detonated by man the bible says “the earth abideth forever”. No matter how many hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions or Tsunamis occurs; the bible says “the earth abideth forever”

 THE FEAR OF THE LITERAL PHYSICAL EARTH COMING TO AN END.

             The Bible is the standard that all Christians should subscribe to in determining or trying to relegate authority in their beliefs. If a Christians wants to know if the physical earth has an ending to it; they should study the Bible. In their diligent studies they will learn that the Bible does not teach an ending to this physical earth in which we live upon. The inspired words of King Solomon plainly states that the “earth abides forever”.  Ecclesiastes 1:4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.  The reader of this magazine will find that particular verse repeated several times to give effect to the subject matter. Because not all readers will comprehend the meaning of the verse being written just one time. There actually is a fear amongst Christians that the world will end by either natural climatic events, man made holocausts, or by  The Apocalypse of the often mis-interpreted book of Revelation. Whatever the cause of the fear is; Christians should get over it because the Bible does not agree with such dialogue. Of the many noted and religious leaders most are still teaching an ending to this physical earth (world). With the scriptures contained in this magazine article one can easily come to the conclusion that this earth will forever be here after all generations has come and gone.
         God has given us this world and he has made provisions for us to survive in it. He tells us that there would always be seed time and harvest time as long as the earth remain. (Gen. 8:22: While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.) Excerpt from the article by Dr. Otis T.

SOME POPULAR BUT  FALSE WORLD ENDING PROPHESIES
      Dorothy Martin (a.k.a. Marion Keech) - She assert strongly to have received a message from planet Clarion during the early 1950s that the world was to end in a great flood before daybreak on December 21, 1954. Martin and her group of followers were positive that a large flying saucer object would save the true believers before the foreseeable destruction of the physical planet Earth. The impression was so strong that some completely left their previous lives, stop working, left their spouses, and gave away  their money and worldly possessions. However; nothing came about other than a regular day where people continued to celebrate the Christmas Holidays.
        Year after year these false idiotic predictions are made and believed by those who proclaim to know Christ and the bible. It is utter non-sense. A true bible student has the knowledge and sanity to formulate scripture to dispel all false notions and prophecies that predict the end of the physical earth. How many Christians remember hearing or reading about the end predicted by Nostradamus? The self proclaimed Prophet Nostradamus prophecized well over 250 years ago that a (“king of terror”) will come from the heavens in the late summer of 1999. An Austrian professor of geology named Alexander Tollmann, decided to seek shelter in a self-built bunker in Austria to wait out the horrors that were predicted. Tollmann who was a strong believer of Nostradamus predictions  was convinced that the apocalypse was to come early in August. This fear was perpetuated  by a total solar eclipse that occurred on August 11, 1999. Still no world ending event occurred. Even this false prediction by Nostrdumas did not dispel his credibility as being a great prophet.  Nearly everyone living at the end of 1999 remembers the Y2K and the Millennium Bug. Near the end of the what was called the second millennium, Christians around the globe feared the world would end with the beginning of the year 2000, or Y2K. This prediction was based on the practice followed by computer programmers of abbreviating year numbers with two digits when developing software. .......According to popular belief, the so-called “Millennium Bug” threatened major banking systems, airplanes planes, and even nuclear weapon systems, leading utter chaos on the great planet Earth. However, nothing happened at midnight on January 1, 2000, the world gleefully and thankfully celebrated the new year, and not one plane dropped out of the sky. ATM machines continued to function and thankfully  the world was not pushed to the brink of nuclear annihilation.
        One of my favorite predictions was made by American radio host Harold Camping. Camping formulated the date for the end of the world using a series of calculations that were based on Jewish feast days along with the lunar calendar. He also claimed the end of the world would occur on May 21, 2011, at 6 p.m. exactly, this would also include an event he called the “Rapture”; in which God’s people would be swept into Heaven by way of the clouds. Those who were left behind would have to stay on planet Earth and wait  five months for their fate/doom. The followers of Camping did the likes of those who followed Dorothy Martin, they quit their jobs, even went so far as to sell their homes and invest large amounts of money in publicizing Camping's false predictions. When nothing occurred, Camping changed his formula saying that the events would take place later. He was also quoted as saying “nobody could know exactly when the time of the apocalypse would come.”
       How cynical can one person be? Here this self proclaimed prophet who confesses to know Jesus Christ did not one time consult the bible( as being the infallible word of God) concerning the end of the Planet.
        The most recent and rather ridiculous prediction is The Mayan calendar prediction for the year 2012  The end of the world was predicted to occur on December 21, 2012. This was to happen when one of the great cycles in the Mayan calendar came to cease. In coming up to that day, the internet was flooded with predictions about a world ending event on “12/21/12”. However; with such dreaded information flooding the internet the NASA space agency felt obligated to produce a scientific information page explaining why the world not end on that day. Although NASA used a scientific approach to dispel the notion that the world would not end. NASA COULD HAVE MERELY STOOD BY THE FACT THAT THE BIBLE DOES NOT TEACH AN ENDING TO THIS PHYSICAL EARTH.
         Years from today many predictions will come and go. God made this world and he promised to never destroy mankind again. Genesis 8:21.....Neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.
