Christian group predicts Doomsday: The end of the world - latest
Chris McCann, leader of the eBible fellowship and all-round God expert, believes the world will be engulfed and destroyed by a great fire on October 7. We are on hand to liveblog the end
Be aware of false doctrine. Those who would distort scripture have been at work since the beginning of time. The original liar misquoted God and deceived the woman. Be neither shocked nor dismayed by the attempt of false teachers to lead the very elect astray. The beginning of a new year brings warnings and prognosticators out in full force declaring this is the final year, day or moment of time. Believers need not fear the end of time or shutter and cower when self-proclaimed prophets falsely predict the day of Christ’s return. We, who are the called, should not live in fear but in peace.
2 Peter 3:11-18
11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of person sought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; 15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.17 You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked;18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.
Live in peace and not in fear. We remain assured of where we stand with God by growing in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior. In order to be found spotless and of good character, we must be grounded in the Word. Spend 2016 searching the scriptures for knowledge of God’s will and way, seek understanding and apply the wisdom that comes from God to your daily life. Strive to be doctrinally sound so that no one can twist scripture and lead you astray. Be discerning, be alert and beware but above all, be at peace.
