Wonderingly, “you lay yourself down to sleep, and pray the Lord your soul to keep”…
Questioningly, the world hopes: For peace on Earth and good will towards all humankind”…
Trustingly, mothers sing: … Lullaby and goodnight …
Meanwhile, it is reckoned by classics, and myths, that in the invisible realm, Angels and Dragons are at war for the souls of humankind…
Beyond your mind set, beyond what you have heard and believed before, and for the sake of adding insight, sense, and truth,,,,, read and consider:
A nuclear world war, with its present facilities and explosive power, would bring a great dying to this planet; but be it now or in the future, such a war WOULD NOT be capable to utterly destroy all human life and habitat on the Earth.
In the billions of years of Earth s history, major cataclysms of world-wide destruction came by nature and were not man-made. If all the deliverable kiloton atomic and megaton hydrogen nuclear bomb inventory of Earth’s planet (including Russia s 1961 Tsar mammoth bomb of approximately 50 megatons) were exploded at the same time… THEIR TOTAL ENERGY would equal less energy than an earthquake of 9 on the Richter scale.
Such an earthquake of 9RS would be equivalent to an explosion of 200 million tonnes of TNT. To date there have been recorded earthquakes reaching 8.9 on the Richter scale.
Even an earthquake of that magnitude WOULD NOT extinguish all life on this planet; nor would a nuclear global debris cloud event, also called a nuclear winter, guarantee ultimate annihilation of the human species. Of course the quality of life for the survivors would most likely be scant.
However, the impact (depending on its mass and relative velocity) of a large comet or asteroid which could yield energy up to being equal to one billion megatons of TNT, could bring the end to all human life on Earth.
From a statistical insight it could be reckoned there are asteroids traveling in space that in the matter of time will one day reach this planet Earth. This super event exceeds the more common potential impact events of the asteroid belt such as the asteroid Sun orbit loopers and the Mars fly-by asteroids.
Asteroid impacts from these fly-by sources will bring on great dyings but won’t end the world. The real death warrant for Earth is coming from afar and has been on the way for a long time.
In the 8th chapter of the book of Revelation under the title, “The Seventh Seal”, a future event is described about a blazing (star) asteroid called “worm wood” that will smash into the Earth blotting out sun and star light (compare Revelation 8:10-11 KJV).
Keep in mind, the mystery of the book of Revelation is further deepened due to the fact that the verses and chapters are considerably not in chronological order.
This event will affect the whole human race which symbolically is described as “1/3″. This “1/3″ figure represents the failed Ophannim messengers (angels) who being symbolized as stars were cast to Earth to take on materialized bodies (compare Revelation 12:3-4, and Jude 6, chains of darkness = cells of material bodies, KJV).
This said “1/3″ figure refers to “1/3″ of the Creators but specifically the Ophannim 1/3 who are now abiding on Earth as human beings. So then, the three hosts of creators were made up of the following messenger (angel) hosts: the Cherubim, 1/3; the Seraphim, 1/3; and the Ophannim 1/3. These Creator Hosts were god creator angels creating in the Milky Way Galaxy. After a great war in universal space (heaven) caused by the mutiny of a leader angel who against the plans led the Ophannim to the constellation of Draco from where uun assumed uun’s Dragon name, (compare Jude 6) the Ophannim were decommissioned and sent to Earth (compare Revelation 12:7-9 KJV).
From the beginning of Earth time, great dyings continued on and on. Before the dyings and after and through dyings on and on, the world also continued to have its poor (compare St. John 12:8 KJV).
But Jesus gave a list of terrible things the earth and its inhabitants would experience and said: “The end is not yet…this is only the beginning of sorrows”. (Compare, Matthew 24:6-7).
The Revelation 22: 20 says: behold I (Jesus Christ) come quickly. That was about 2000 years ago. The scripture should have said: behold I come suddenly. Someone will say: a thousand years to men is but a day with God. What if I told you a hundred thousand years from now time will still be going on and humans will still be alive. Were going to the stars, Abraham look up, can you count the number of the stars?
Paul the Apostle said: As regards the coming of Jesus Christ (and the end of the world) don’t be soon shaken in mind or troubled. Let no one deceive you that this is the end. Even if an angel or priest or minister or someone so interprets the bible just don’t believe it. There are many things that must happen before the Universe is rolled into a scroll. (Compare, 2nd Thessalonians 2:1-4 KJV,MIV, Paraphrased).
In the duration of time whence will come the intervening of events; great Earth dyings will go on and on. “There will be wars and rumours of wars” on and on, but these WILL NOT bring the end of the world (compare Matthew 24:6 KJV).
Nations and kingdoms will war against each other on and on, but this WILL NOT exterminate all life. Also, there will be famines, pestilences, biological warfare, chemical warfare, super germs, pandemics, earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes, but these will not exterminate all life. Such horrors and proliferations are all PRELIMINARY (“beginning of sorrows” compare Matthew 24:7-8 KJV) to the end, but are not the very end itself.
It will eventually be understood that wars have been going on since the beginning of time, and wars will continue until the end of the world because humans inherited a wrathful brute beast nature (compare Ephesians 2:3 and Jude10 and 2 Peter 2:12 KJV). This was precisely what Jesus was saying: you’ll always have the poor; you will always have wars and rumours of wars; you will always have earthquakes and pestilence etc., etc.
Some theologians not understanding the parable that Jesus spoke when He said the gospel must first be preached to the whole world then the end of the world would come, by passed the teachings of Jesus which revealed that Jesus was referring to the Kingdom of God within becoming manifested to all the world.
In the interpretation of those theologians who literalized the preaching of the Word to all the world it was really like saying, If you don’t want the world to end, then don’t spread the gospel to the whole world (compare St. Matthew 24:14 KJV).
Of course someone will say: “this world end delay is so that everyone in the world can hear the gospel” before the world ends. And that s nice, but how old or to what age of accountability would these late-comers need to be? And what about the continuing new births?
The real insight could be considered the Scripture in Romans 10: 17-18 (KJV) which basically says, The whole world has heard the Word . This approach goes along with Scriptures that speak of the mysteries of God hidden since the beginning of the world (compare 1 Corinthians 2: 7-8).
This book of Romans Scripture is not alone in saying that as humans come into the world, they are born with a certain inner hidden spirituality and identification as being more than just a new, never-before life. For example, St. John 1:9 (KJV) claims all humans born into the world are born with the instilled Light of God. Jesus described this Light as the “Kingdom Of God” within every person and why humans are considered gods (compare Luke 17:20-21 and St. John 10:34-35 KJV).
The Bible actually teaches humankind is in a “time and a chance” frame (compare Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV) called Abraham s Bosom (compare Luke 16:22-23 KJV), and this time frame will last 70,000 or 80,000 years (compare Psalms 90:9-10 and 105:8 KJV).
There will be many dyings on and on, but that does not mean the end of the world is nigh. Humankind not only lives in star time (compare Genesis 1:14 KJV), but humans are destined to go to the stars (compare Isaiah 51:16 KJV).
Jesus said: “In My Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (Compare St. John 14: 2-4 KJV.)
This statement is not speaking of the Heaven of heavens but rather of a place in this physical universe that Jesus is going to prepare as an abode for the Destinata. Whether this lives in you yet or not, this Earth World is really not ultimate home.
Messengers (angels with physical bodies) are flying the sky-ways of this planet sometimes being called UFOs (compare Rev. 8:13). AS it was in the days of Noah, destinata (believers) were saved by water, and by air. Jesus specifically mentions this kind of scenario will happen again. It is during the time that the asteroids (stars) are to impact on earth (compare St. Matt. 24: 29-31) that Jesus and His Host come flying in Zziths at the speed of light plus. (compare St. Matt. 24: 27).
So then the continuum of wars, troubles, and dyings goes on and on until one day the END OF THE WORLD really comes. Its all a matter of time.
