"SERIOUS THOUGHT’S ABOUT THE “END OF THE WORLD”
To me, this would signal the close of probation for God's "chosen" people. The house of God. NOT the world.
“A darkness will cover the inhabitants of the earth when Jesus moves out of the heavenly sanctuary such as enveloped the earth at the time of his crucifixion. This will be an evidence, to those who have known the truth, that probation’s hours are past, and the eternal destiny of every soul is sealed beyond recall; but this will only strike terror to the soul that has failed to heed the warning message, “Prepare to meet thy God”. Review & Herald Articles Book 3, page 581. Review and Herald Supplement of June 21, 1898
G.A. Irwin wrote in the Review and Herald Supplement of June 21, 1898, "A darkness will cover the inhabitants of the earth when Jesus moves out of the heavenly sanctuary, such as enveloped the earth at the time of the crucifixion."
"The solemn fact is to be kept not only before the people of the world, but before our own churches also, that the day of the Lord will come suddenly, unexpectedly." (FE 336). "When probation ends, it will come suddenly, unexpectedly--at a time when we are least expecting it. But we can have a clean record in heaven today, and know that God accepts us" (7BC 989).
"In the time of trouble, Satan stirs up the wicked, and they encircle the
people of God to destroy them. But he does not know that 'pardon' has been
written opposite their names in the books of heaven" (RH Nov. 19, 1908).
"He sees that holy angels are guarding [the people of God], and he
infers that their sins have been pardoned; but he does not know that their
cases have been decided in the sanctuary above" (GC 618).
What does the Bible say will follow probation's close?
Revelation 15: 8--And the temple was filled with smoke from his power,
and no one could enter the temple until the seven plagues of the seven
angels were completed.
Revelation 16: 1--Then I heard a loud voice from the temple
saying to the seven angels, "Go, pour out the seven bowls of God's wrath
on the earth."
Revelation 19: 11-15--I saw heaven standing open and there before
me was a white horse, whose rider is called Faithful and True. With justice
he judges and makes war. His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head
are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God. The
armies of heaven were following him, riding on white horses and dressed in fine
linen, white and clean. Out of his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to
strike down the nations. "He will rule them with an iron scepter." He treads
the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God Almighty.
"I saw that the four angels would hold the four winds until Jesus' work was
done in the sanctuary, and then will come the seven last plagues" (EW 36).
"When the work of the investigative judgement closes, the destiny of all
will have been decided for life or death. Probation is ended a short time before
the appearing of the Lord in the clouds of heaven" (GC 490).
At the VERY END OF TIME there will only be two classes: The Righteous, and the Wicked.
“Prayerless, Careless Soul, What then?” “Have you counted the cost”, Do not hold on to any grudges against anyone-for any reason? When that “day”comes, you will wish you had not. It will not be worth it, then. I want to be ready when Jesus comes, don’t you? and have my sins laid “on the alter” today, the sins I know and the sins I don’t know. I want all my family there too. Trials are hard enough that we go thru every day, we should make it easy for someone to say “I’m sorry” for something you think someone said or did and confront them if they don’t confront you to make records clean today. “Are YOU on the Lord’s Side”? I always felt our family was a loving family and a close family.

The 3 days of darkness in December 2012? ....Be prepared...it will happen someday if not in Dec 2012?
NASA PROVES THE BIBLE IS true
What do you think about this;
For all you scientists out there and for all the students who have had a hard time convincing these people regarding the truth of the Bible - here's something that illustrates God's awesome creation and shows He is still in control.
Did you know that NASA's space programmes are busy proving that what has been called 'myth' in the Bible is true?
Mr. Harold Hill, President of the Curtis engine Company in Baltimore , and a consultant in the spaceprogrammes, relates the following incident: "One of the most amazing things that God has for us today happened recently to our astronauts and space scientists at Green Belt, Maryland . They were checking out the positions of the sun, moon and planets out in space where they would be 100, and 1000 years from now. We have to know this as we do not want a satellite to collide with any of these in its orbits.
We have to lay out the orbits in terms of the life of the satellite and where the planets will be so the whole project will not bog down.
Computer measurements and data were run back and forth over the centuries when suddenly it came to a halt, displaying a red signal, which meant that either there was something wrong with the information fed into it, or with
the results as compared to the standards. They called in the service department to check it out, and the technicians asked what was wrong.
The scientists had discovered that somewhere in space in elapsed time a day was missing..
Nobody seemed able to come up with a solution to the problem.
Finally one of the team, a Christian, said: "You know, when I was still in
Sunday school, they spoke about the sun standing still."
While his colleagues didn't believe him, they did not have an answer either,
so they said: "Show us."
He got a Bible and opened it at the book of Joshua where they found a pretty
ridiculous statement for any one with 'common sense'. There they read about
the Lord saying to Joshua: "Fear them not, I have delivered them into thy
hand; there shall not be a man of them stand before thee." (Joshua 10:8).
Joshua was concerned because the enemy had surrounded him, and if darkness
fell, they would overpower him. So Joshua asked the Lord to make the sun
stand still! That's right - "And the sun stood still and the moon stayed,
until the people had avenged themselves upon their
enemies. Is this not written in the book of Ja'-sher? So the sun
stood still in the midst of heaven and hastened not to go down about a whole
day." (Joshua 10:13).
The astronauts and scientists said: "There is the missing day!"
They checked the computers going back into the time it was written and found
it, but it was not close enough. The elapsed time that was missing back in
Joshua's day was 23 hours and 20 minutes - not a whole day. They read the
Bible again and there it was: "about
(approximately) a day." These little words in the Bible were
important, but they were still in trouble, because another 40 minutes were
still unaccounted for, and this could mean trouble 1000 years from now.
Forty minutes had to be found because it can be multiplied many times over
in orbits. As the Christian employee thought about it, he remembered
somewhere in the Bible which said the sun went backwards.
The scientists told him he was out of his mind, but once again they opened
the Book and read these words in 2 Kings. Hezekiah, on his deathbed, was
visited by the prophet, Isaiah, who told him he was not going to die.
Hezekiah asked for some sign as proof.
Isaiah said: "Shall the sun go forward ten degrees, or go back ten degrees?"
And Hezekiah answered: "It is a light thing for the shadow to go down ten
degrees; nay, but let the shadow return backwards ten degrees."
And Isaiah the prophet cried unto the Lord, and He brought the shadow ten
degrees backward, by which it had gone down in the dial of Ahaz."
(2 Kings 20:9 -11).
Ten degrees is exactly 40 minutes! Twenty-three hours and twenty minutes in
Joshua, plus 40 minutes in 2 Kings accounted for the missing day in the
Isn't this amazing?
Now for some more frightening news! again from NASA!
NASA predicts total black out on 23 to 25 th DEC 2012.
NASA predicts total blackout on 23-25 Dec 2012 during alignment of Universe.
US scientists predict Universe change, total blackout of planet for 3 days
from Dec 23 2012. It is not the end of the world, it is an alignment of the
Universe, where the Sun and the earth will align for the first time. The
earth will shift from the current third dimension to zero dimension, then
shift to the forth dimension. During this transition, the entire Universe
will face a big change, and we will see a entire brand new world.
The 3 days blackout is predicted to happen on Dec 23, 24, 25....during this
time, staying calm is most important, hug each other, pray pray pray, sleep
for 3 nights...and those who survive will face a brand new world....for
those not prepared, many will die because of fear. Be happy..., enjoy every
moment now. Don't worry, pray to God everyday.
There is a lot of talk about what will happen in 2012, but many people don't
believe it, and don't want to talk about it for fear of creating fear and
panic. We don't know what will happen, but it is worth listening to USA's
NASA talk about preparation.
Whether it's true or not, better be prepared. No panic, stay calm, just
pray. Remember to smile more, love more, forgive more...everyday.
Here we have a repetition of the "Ninth Egyptian Plague," that of DARKNESS. Ex. 10:21-23. This is the "day" spoken of by Joel. "A day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness." Joel 2:1-2. Christ speaks of it in Mark 13:24, as the time when "the Sun shall be darkened, and the Moon shall not give her light."
Notice that this Plague immediately follows the Plague of "Scorching Heat," as if God in mercy would hide the Sun whose rays had been so hard to bear. The effect of the darkness was to make men gnaw their tongues for PAIN and for their SORES, showing that these Plagues overlapped each other, or followed in such rapid order that they were not over the sufferings of one before they were suffering from another, and that they were limited to a short period, and not distributed over a period of years as the Historical School of interpretation claims.
The notable feature is, that their sufferings brought no repentance, but caused them to blaspheme the God of Heaven. Some talk of conversion in Hell, and of the ultimate restoration of the wicked, but it is not revealed here. Why do not the torments of those under these plagues lead to repentance? Because probation IS CLOSED. No, it only causes them to blaspheme the more. This Plague extends over the whole Kingdom of the Beast.
