CHAPTER 2

WHAT WILL END?

The World Never Ends

eople have often spoken about the end of the world or

“doomsday.” Yet, the scriptures tell us that the world nev-

er ends but endures forever,

“…like the earth that he estab-

lished forever”

(Psalm 78:69). Also,

“Generations come and

generations go, but the earth remains forever”

(Ecc. 1:4). There

will be a new earth (Rev 21:1), but the earth is changed from

matter to energy—disappearing from visible sight; but in es-

sence, it will be only a reconstitution.

END OF THE WORLD vs. END OF THE AGE

If the world never ends, then what is meant by several vers-

es in the King James Version of the Bible that speak of the end

of the world? Note especially:

“And as he sat upon the mount

of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, ‘Tell

us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of

thy coming, and of the end of the world’”

(Matt. 24:3, KJV)?

And Jesus’ words,

“So shall it be at the end of the world: the

angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the

just”

(Matt. 13:49, KJV).
