Well, the good old “Doomsday” clock has once again been moved forward. Is this because the people that came up with this idea have some knowledge we do not or is this just a statement on mankind’s headlong rush to destroy themselves. It would seem, with no intervention, that these people of the “Doomsday” clock must have some knowledge or preconceived notion as to what is coming. Indeed, were these people to read and, more, understand the Bible they might change their attitude and look forward to what is coming rather than taking on this dismal outlook toward the future.
What does the Bible say about “Doomsday?”
A generation is going, and a generation is coming, But the earth remains forever.Ecclesiastes 1:4
The righteous will possess the earth, And they will live forever on it.Psalm 37:29
Furthermore, the world is passing away and so is its desire, but the one who does the will of God remains forever.1 John 2:17
The above quotes are relative to our future. Generations come and go but the Earth abides forever. Remember always that of all celestial bodies we know of only one that can support life. We live on this one. Science says that the light sources from light-years away indicate that other planets outside our solar system may be able to support life as we understand it. However, proof is not forthcoming and to all intent and purpose Earth is the only planet that can support life. To do this everything has to have been set up, well, perfectly.
The fact that so many take what we have for granted is the major aspect of the lack of reasoning for destroying so much of what we have. It is this “ruining” of the earth God takes a stance against. This is His planet and we are here to tend it. We have long ago stopped tending and turned to ruining for riches. It is a small part of why Jesus said that for a rich man to go to Heaven is like passing a camel through the eye of a needle. It is impossible.
The Earth abides forever as this is Jehovah’s planet. It is so far from what it’s potential is that we have no idea of what our planet was originally when Adam and Eve were first placed here. If you read Genesis you will see that when Adam and Eve were banished for their sins that God told them birth would be painful and thorns and nettles would start to grow making working of the land harder than it should be. It is there in black and white. It is truer than we understand truth because it is God’s truth, not ours. We are overcome with life in our national existence We are constantly one gun shot away from war. We need to make the effort to get on the right side of Jehovah and move away from this world construct of mankind. It is not God’s construct it is ours and we are subject to the worst behavior in the universe.
The closer we get to Jehovah the easier the truth comes to us. It is simple in its complexity but it is written so that all can understand it. The Bible is that truth. It IS God’s word.
