Will Time End – And If Time Ends, When Will It End – Faith Versus Science.

Will time end?

Yes time will end.

But I need to define what time I’m writing about. I’m speaking of Man’s time. Human time, Physical time. Man’s time will end.

However, God doesn’t operate at the same level as man. While most of the time, Man lives in the Physical, God is Spirit. God dwells in eternity. Therefore God’s time will not end but Man’s time on this current earth will end.

Science predicts that time will end in five billion years according to the Multiverse theory and the Eternal Inflation theory.

Multiverse theory in basic terms postulates the existence of multiple universes or as has been seen in movies, it’s the idea of parallel universes.

Eternal inflation on the other hand postulates that our universe will expand forever and it is a further extension of the Big Bang theory.

Faith according to the Bible says there is a last day. Prophet Micah said this about the last days:

“In the last days
the mountain of the Lord’s house
will be established
at the top of the mountains
and will be raised above the hills.
Peoples will stream to it
Micah 4: 1

This generation is living in the last days and the end of our time and this earth is soon. In Matthew Jesus said this about the happenings in the last days which we are witnessing now.

And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you.
5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved.
14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24:4-14

Science says our universe has existed for nearly 14 billion years.

Faith according to the Bible says, Man has lived on the Earth for about 6000 years. Answers in Genesis illustrates this in a brilliant mathematical explanation in this article, “How Old Is the Earth?”

Will time come to an abrupt end?

Time will not come to an abrupt end. The Bible doesn’t say so. The Bible tells us there will be signs and warning which we shall see and witness before the end.

And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God,
That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your young men shall see visions,
Your old men shall dream dreams.
18 And on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days;
And they shall prophesy.
19 I will show wonders in heaven above
And signs in the earth beneath:
Blood and fire and vapor of smoke.
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness,
And the moon into blood,
Before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord.
Acts 2:17-21

The series on Harbingers of the End times tries to elaborate on some of these signs which are happening though they might not be visible to the carnal mind. Only by the leading of the Holy Spirit, careful study of God’s word and keeping abreast with the news can one be able to make the correlations.

Is the end of Time inevitable?

Science says the end of time is not inevitable.

Faith according to the Bible says, the earth and heavens will pass away therefore the end of time is inevitable.

“In the same way, when you see these things happening, recognize that the kingdom of God is near. 32 I assure you: This generation will certainly not pass away until all things take place. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.”
Luke 21:31-33

So, unfortunately for scientists and physicists. The end of the world is inevitable. And it will not happen in 5 billion years like Professor Ken D Olum of Tuft University says in this statement, “There’s no need to go off and sell your stocks because the universe is going to end in five billion years,”

Jesus knew the world would end, that is why he encouraged his followers to store there goods where moth would not destroy it.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.
Matthew 6:19-20

The Apostle Peter gently reminds us that:

Now the end of all things is near; therefore, be serious and disciplined for prayer. 8 Above all, maintain an intense love for each other, since love covers a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:7-8

I pray we can make Peter’s words a constant prayer.
