Advent devotional thought Dec. 2

December 2: When I hear people prophesy about a date that the world will end I am reminded of the many, many people who have done this over the centuries and how Jesus said that we will not know the day or time of such an event. Likewise when I hear people put down the prophesies and possibility of end times and such catastrophes I am reminded of the scripture, like 1 Peter 3:3 First of all you must understand this, that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and indulging their own lusts and saying, ‘Where is the promise of his coming?’ I do not know what is worse, scoffing at scripture or using it to incite fear and bolstering one’s own ego. Everything we have will pass from us, our homes, our lives, even the world as we know it. The Word of God, or the ignited passion of creation, or the light of all being; that which we try to describe, with our very limited words of the limitless and eternal existence that is God, continues.
