So, today the world is supposed to end. I haven’t heard specifics on how it is supposed to happen, but that’s OK. All the kerfuffle reminds me of my favorite “comic strip.” It was a single frame style actually and, as I recall it depicted a street corner scene. In the back were a group of “doomsdayers” in long white robes with long white beards. They were holding up placards with such warnings as, “The end of the world is coming!” “The world will end tomorrow!” “Prepare for the end of the world!” In the foreground is a decent looking fellow with the Holy Bible under his arm and he’s saying, “That’s OK. We can get along without it.”
I love that. :-) We CAN get along without it!
This old world has some beautiful spots. It has a certain level of enjoyment and pleasantness. But, there is so much sin, there is so much sorrow. And, more than that, through faith in Jesus Christ I have so much more to look forward to, that really and truly I can get along without this old world! How about you?
2 Peter 3:10-13 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Regarding the Mayans -
First of all, if they had been so smart about predicting the future they would still be a nation today.
Psalms 96:1-5 O sing unto the LORD a new song: sing unto the LORD, all the earth. Sing unto the LORD, bless his name; shew forth his salvation from day to day. Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people. For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. For all the gods of the nations are idols: but the LORD made the heavens.
