The End of the World: October 21, 2011!

Used to be guys in scraggly beards and sandals would wear sandwich boards and walk the streets shouting "Repent! The End Is Near!" But that's so old school. Now they do it online. According to EBibleFellowship.com, we just had our last Halloween.

1988 AD—This year ended the church age and began the great tribulation period of 23 years (13,000 years from creation). 1994 AD—On September 7th, the first 2300-day period of the great tribulation came to an end and the latter rain began, commencing God’s plan to save a great multitude of people outside of the churches (13,006 years from creation).

2011 AD—On May 21st, Judgment Day will begin and the rapture (the taking up into heaven of God’s elect people) will occur at the end of the 23-year great tribulation.

On October 21st, the world will be destroyed by fire (7000 years from the flood; 13,023 years from creation).

Q. Of course these are the End Times. Isn't Jerusalem becoming of interest to the entire world?

Jerusalem is a holy city for three Abrahamic religions. It has always been of interest.

Q. But isn't the US Currency falling?

This is more of a sign that Americans like to buy imported oil and finished goods. Since we pay for them in dollars, we are shipping a lot of dollars overseas. There is more supply for greenbacks than demand.

Q. But isn't the European Union gaining strength?

Sure. So what was the economic objection to "socialized medicine" again?

Q. But isn't Russia becoming defiant and returning to a Cold War stance?

Why must a sovereign nation be compliant to the United States?

Q. But isn't Apostate Christianity running rampant?

One person's apostasy is another person's orthodoxy.

Q. What about the One World religious movements gaining momentum?

Christ said he would have one flock and one shepherd.

Q. What about the natural disasters increasing in record numbers?

Please provide evidence that the frequency of natural disasters are spiking.

Q. What about the apathy in the Church?

There is no apathy in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

Q. What about the gay rights movement worldwide?

Next thing you know, they'll want to ride in the front of the bus or drink from our water fountains.

Q. What about all the Celestial signs increasing?

Name one recent celestial sign.

Q. What about crime rising in record numbers?

If crime is a constant percentage by population, and if population rises, then crime rises too. A rising tide lifts all boats.

Q. What about China’s immense military power (200,000,000)?

China only has 2,250,000 active troops. It's popular now to claim China is going to surpass the United States. In 1989 you had all the same kind of talk about Japan kicking our ass economically and buying up everything from the Statue of Liberty to Yosemite National Park. Demographics is destiny, and China is about to encounter the phenomenon of a Japan-style "lost decade". We get to be on top for yet one more American Century, at least until we are finished mining out all the solar energy that has been banked underground for 25 million years.

Q. What about the fact that love for others is growing colder?

And meanwhile we try to pass amendments to the Constitution to make sure same-sex couples who do have warm love for each other can't get married.
