The End Of The World?


I get so frustrated with people who are inclined to believe that the world is going to be destroyed. I have heard a lot of folks talking about prophesies concerning ‘The End Of This World; I was raised as a Christian and was taught that our Creator is a loving creator. Is it possible that our Creator is tired of man running the earth? There have been many prophecies relating to this subject. The Mayan Calendar, Nostradamus, as well as some modern ‘Gloom and Doom’ preachers starting back in the late 1880’s making the statement that this earth we live on will be destroyed in the year 2012 December 21, Why that date? Why not December 31st?


I have read the Bible and it clearly shows that our loving Creator made this place we call ‘Mother Earth’ to be inhabited and also that when our Creator says something, as recorded in the bible, his words do not return without results. Black Elk was a very knowledgeable man and when he spoke about the end of times, he was not saying that the earth would be destroyed but that there will be ‘A Big Change! The change will be in the way we live and treat others. I have seen many changes take place over the past several years. This does not mean that we will all die soon! I say NO! It simply means that our loving Father, the Creator of Mother Earth has held back from destroying a society of humans because of their doing nothing but bad all the time. If you look back over the years you too can see where these changes took place and are taking place.


World War One, World War Two, Korea, Vietnam, Operation Desert Storm and now in in the Middle East, Afghanistan and other places in the far East. Do these people respect the Creator and the things created? Absolutely not!  I welcome the change and I will tell you why!  Once the change takes place, we may be able to walk in our own neighborhoods without worrying about being attacked by a gang of youngsters out to prove how brave they are. I say, until this ‘Big Change; Black Elk spoke about comes to pass we will continue to live in fear, not the fear of this world being destroyed but the fear of other humans wishing to take what we own. I also say this, do not be afraid, if we trust our Creator, no one can harm us. Live well my brothers and give praise to the one who deserves it! 


Be Blessed.
