THE END OF THE WORLD or NOT?
The few brands and types of Futurism all teach that one day our world will come to its end. Now some say that this end will be physical, involving not only the earth, but the universe as well. Some have proposed something like the "big bang" theory; that one day, the entire universe will just EXPLODE!
Other Futurists say that the world will not end, but it's life "cycles" will end; meaning that the cycle of age will no longer occur. Thus, this view teaches that only the risen saints will live on the earth, for ever and ever....not much to look foward to, if you ask me. The universe is too big to limit an eternal race to the surfce of a non-aging earth. Now if we will have the ability to leave the earth at any time, and travel to other distant galaxies, then perhaps that'll be something worth waiting for.
However, Preterists have been trying to teach these folks (all Futurists) that the earth will not die, nor will it stop the cycles of age; both earth and man. Take a look at the these two passages from God's word:
Ecclesiastes 1:4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever!
Does this verse imply that one day generations will cease to exist? No, it does not, just as Solomon wrote from the Spirit that the earth will abide forever.
Isaiah 9:7 "Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
Isaiah from the Holy Spirit states that the "increase" of God's government, through Christ Jesus, will have no end; it will never stop increasing, and it will never come to an end-cycle.
Futurists have a very difficult time understanding the simple work of farming. The famer tills, plants, cultivates, and reeps. Then the cycle starts all over again....and again....and again. No where does the Bible say that farming (spiritual point of view) will come to an end.
Israel is more than just a race; it is more than just a nation; it is the people of God, from faith, by faith, and only faith. Those who assemble in the name of Christ Jesus, embrance Israel because they are Israel
