Maybe it's my age or world events or both, but I'm beginning to think the End is actually near. Am I officially off my rocker?:toilet::screwy::whirly::rollsmile:nerv2::yikes:

Do you ever read the drudge report? I love that site. Everyday it's like the world is ending and there's so many things to freak out about. I read it because it makes me feel like I'm one of those end of the world movies. Anyway, after a couple years of my daily drudge, I think I'm desensitized.

I don't think you're off your rocker, just sensitive to world events. In this day of instant communication, watching a video of the tsunami hit Japan is enough to make anyone think of the end of the world.

I just try to remember that this planet is older than mankind and almost a living thing unto itself. The earth has cycles of weather, environmental change, and geological movement that we barely understand and certainly don't control. While it's in our nature to find patterns and seek meaning, I think it's just normal natural Life in the Universe type activity.

They don't call the rim of the Pacific the Ring of Fire for nothing. ;)

The Bible is very clear that nobody will know when the world will end. Jesus said in Matthew 25: 13, "Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man comes."

In Matthew 24:44 he says, "Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as you think not the Son of man comes."

I don't worry about this stuff. You will drive yourself crazy with all the doom and gloom.

In the past we only heard about something like this but now we see it in action and it comes home to us what a terrible thing a tsunami is.

I don't think your crazy. I know the Bible says we don't know when, but it certainly predicts many signs that point towards the end. With the upheaval in the Middle East, the natural disasters coming one ofter the other and the major world economic issues, I can certainly see some of those signs coming to life.

There seems to be earthquake after earthquake lately. I don't remember every hearing of so many devastating quakes in such a short time span before.

You're not crazy, and I agree with Daisygirl.......

"Crazy" is what you will read in Timothy, Chapter 3. This has become what we as a society have become today. Take a look at the uncaring and smug faces you see each day.
"Desensitized" scares me even more. This is what "evil" wants, and what "it" has as the master plan. The "increase in information" prophesied in the bible has helped us to care about others less each day as we are bombarded with horrors.

We are commanded, as Christians, to watch for the signs. And, yes, God is the "One" that knows when this earth will finally be at its end. We are blessed to watch these signs through the "increase of information", and know that another prophecy has been fulfilled.

Google "fulfilled prophecies" to see how far along we are.

blessings...

Pinktulip.........I do agree with your DH to a point...

the bible tells us that there would be an increase in information, and that there would always be scoffers...(not saying this about DH, but I have experienced this for years with all ages of relatives...)

The point is that we now do have all of this information at our fingertips...internet, cable, radio, facebook, twitter, etc. So, how will WW3 play out as we watch all that is going on? I'm going to guess that the horror will be greater as we watch our heroic "Guards" defend all that is dear to us.

And, at this point, I would truly appreciate any and all that have experienced the view that "The end has been happening forever"...

Well, from my non-Christian view, I don't think you are crazy meredithah but you may be feeling a change in things around you.

There are a lot of HSP and/or pagan people who have been talking about this for quite some time.

An end... just not THE end. A change or shift in life as we know it. The push to be more self-sufficient and less dependent on technology.

This is how I feel. After all the things the earth has been through, I doubt it's gonna end in my little lifetime.

From my pagan point of view I think that we are all tuned into the earth on some level and each other, and what we are picking up are changes that are happening. End of the world I don't know about that but I do know that things are changing weather patterns, worse storms etc. In a nature sort of way, and more unrest in the world then I think we have seen in a long long time.
As well in our lifetime we have seen major things play out more then other times, if you take in to account all the major natural disasters and man made disasters, wars etc.
I think that the creation of 24 hour news channels does a lot as well to play and re play all of it,and play into peoples sense of security. I remember hearing that children don't know for the most part that every time they see it on t.v that it is the same footage or the same disaster they keep thinking it is happening all over again.
I think for the first time in history we have seen the front lines of war as it happens and live footage of natural disasters as they happen.
I always say though try not to worry about the end of the world because when it happens there is not much you can do about it. Just try and be prepared as much as possible for things.
We could get hit by an asteroid tonight for all we know. Remember more people are killed by donkeys then lighting strikes!

I am not in love with all the news updated every second, but find myself addicted to it.

I wasn't being flippant, really I wasn't but thats the thought that was running through my head all day yesterday.
This earth is a lot older than any of us can imagine and nobody knows if its finished evolving yet. From the looks of things, it hasn't.
