GET READY

The nice thing about blogging is you can post a link to something which you are interested in, and hope someone "out there" in cyberspace can relate to it and comment on it as well.

Such is the case with the "end of the world" predictions which crop up every now and then.

Now we have another case in point: Harold Camping and his perennial Bible-twisting doctrinal nightmares, also known as false teachings. Mr. Camping has once again "predicted" the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and the end of the "universe" (see video in linked story).

I can assure you, and myself, that God will not destroy the universe on Saturday. I have been exploring, along with a friend of mine who has been following this "wild goose chase" longer than I have, a theological construct of the end-times called preterism


Today's headlines about the end of the world are the reason I consider the strong possibility that we have been wrong all this time about it. Jesus came back in 70 A.D., just as He said He would. We are the beneficiaries of His finished work (sinless life, atoning death, triumphal resurrection from the dead, and judgment on all His enemies). He came then to destroy the old world, or Old Covenant (Testament) with its temple and sacrifices -- which could never take away sins (Hebrews 10:11), to bring the New Covenant into full swing.

More to come about this...
