December 21, 2012

I will host a party today. Why? Because the world is finally ending.Yiiii. But kidding aside, I do not understand why people subscribe to this craziness. If I have listened to every prophecy of the world ending, I would have died every time I heard it. Worse, I would have done the same things as most of the modern doomsday preppers. No disrespect to them here but that’s how I see it. I think it’s just sad that most of them spend their time worrying to what is inevitable. But I guess survival instincts of humanity dictates to prolong our lives no matter what; to save what is savable; to try and amend things even though it we knew exactly that it cannot be amended.

As per 1 Thessalonians 5:2-4, it is being stated that Christ will come like a thief. And yes, no one will know when he will come, only the father knows (Mark 13:32-33).  So as a form of getting the truth, or close to it, I asked my mentors and co-workers to what they think of the parousia happening today. Some of them said that no, it’s not happening, not now, not in the near future.  Some even said that they do not think he is that merciless to put people—the ones he created—to hell. Others said that just as long as we believe in Christ, we can be saved. How about those that don’t, I ask. They will not be saved, he said; shame on them that they did not meet Christ in their lives. And at the end of the day, I believed I have reached my limit. Some I understand and some I do not. I got more confused to a few but few of the things I believe in were validated.

But what does end of the world means? Should we take this literally? Like how Babylon fell down? Eventually, the entire race in this generation will end, more so with the war that the people are engaging. Sooner or later, we will all perish. And all will be left are the historical debris of yesterday. All I’m saying is we should party like the world is ending today. We cannot stop, avoid, delay the things that will surely come. Much like death… Always there, waiting, bidding it’s time for our individual judgment day. Are we prepared?
