2012

电影2012有很多关于世界末日的猜想。本文旨在鼓励基督徒不要因此担心。没有古代“预言”预告世界末日的到来,因为只有在耶稣再来时世界才会结束。他什么时候再来呢?那时会发生什么呢?有谁可以获救?请从下面的圣经中解读答案。

1.地球将被毁灭,但是只有当耶稣到来时才会发生。

没有随机疾病或自然灾害会毁灭世界。神是有序的,有目的的神,他创造自然界是有目的的(创世纪1:1; 哥林多前书14:33);你的生命是有他的目的的(耶利米书29:11-14);且这个世界会终结-不是偶然的,而是有其目的性的:当神作此决定时。

圣经说:

彼得后书 3:10 - 但主的日子要像贼来到一样。那日天必大有响声废去,有形质的都要被烈火销化。地和其上的物都要烧尽了。
彼得后书3:11 -这一切既都要如此销化,你们为人该当怎样圣洁,怎样敬虔,
彼得后书3:12 -切切仰望神的日子来到。在那日天被烧就销化了,有形质的都要被烈火熔化。

小结一下:

  • 耶稣会像贼一样来到,也就是说没有人能够预料。
  • 当耶稣来临的时候,天空将过去,各个元素将散去,整个地球将毁灭。
  • 这会发生。
  • 只有神可以救你。相信他。

 

2.相信耶稣的会得救

如果世界毁灭了,谁会被得救,如何被得救?圣经上说:[请看下面“为什么我相信圣经”]

帖撒前4:13- 论到睡了的人,我们不愿意弟兄们不知道,恐怕你们忧伤,像那些没有指望的人一样。
帖撒前4:14- 我们若信耶稣死而复活了,那已经在耶稣里睡了的人,神也必将他与耶稣一同带来。
帖撒前4:15- 我们现在照主的话告诉你们一件事。我们这活着还存留到主降临的人,断不能在那已经睡了的人之先。
帖撒前4:16- 因为主必亲自从天降临,有呼叫的声音,和天使长的声音,又有神的号吹响。那在基督里死了的人必先复活。
帖撒前4:17- 以后我们这活着还存留的人,必和他们一同被提到云里,在空中与主相遇。这样,我们就要和主永远同在。
帖撒前4:18- 所以你们当用这些话彼此劝慰

小结一下:

  • 基督徒一直有盼望。
  • 我们有盼望因为即使我们死去,我们依然可以复活-就像耶稣那样。
  • 事实上,那些在基督里死了的人-那些“睡了”的基督徒-将会和耶稣一齐再来
  • 当耶稣再来的时候,会有天使长的声音,又有神的号吹响,那在基督里“睡了”的人必先复活。
  • 活着的基督徒将和主在空中相遇。
  • 我们将和主永远同在。
  • 我们当用这些话彼此劝慰。

这里是对同一问题的另外的解释:

哥林前15:50 -弟兄们,我告诉你们说,血肉之体,不能承受神的国。必朽坏的,不能承受不朽坏的。
哥林前15:51 - 我如今把一件奥秘的事告诉你们。我们不是都要睡觉,乃是都要改变,
哥林前15:52 - 就在一霎时,眨眼之间,号筒末次吹响的时候。因号筒要响,死人要复活成为不朽坏的,我们也要改变。
哥林前15:53 - 这必朽坏的,总要变成不朽坏的。这必死的,总要变成不死的。
哥林前15:54 - 这必朽坏的既变成不朽坏的。这必死的既变成不死的。那时经上所记,死被得胜吞灭的话就应验了。
哥林前15:55 - 死啊,你得胜的权势在那里。死啊,你的毒钩在那里。
哥林前15:56 - 死的毒钩就是罪。罪的权势就是律法。
哥林前15:57 - 感谢神,使我们藉着我们的主耶稣基督得胜。
哥林前15:58 - 所以我亲爱的弟兄们,你们务要坚固不可摇动,常常竭力多作主工,因为知道你们的劳苦,在主里面不是徒然的

小结一下:

  • 我们的血肉之体不能进天国,因为朽坏的不能承受不朽坏的。
  • 但是不是每个人都会死去-或“睡了”。
  • 那些活着的人在耶稣到来的时候也要改变。
  • 就在那一刹那,不是经历几天,几小时-甚至几分钟。
  • 号角会吹响,那些在基督里死去的人-基督徒-会有不朽的身体而复活。
  • 我们这些活着的人也会有不朽的身体。
  • 死亡不会得胜或有毒钩,因为基督带走了律法-以及罪-就是被审判的罪。
  • 感谢神!
  • 因此,我们基督徒要坚持做主工,因为我们所做的不是徒劳的。

 

3.那些不信基督的人会怎么样呢?

上面讲到基督徒会发生什么,那么不信基督的人会怎么样呢?

帖撒后1:7 –也必使你们这受患难的人,与我们同得平安。那时,主耶稣同他有能力的天使从天上在火焰中显现,
帖撒后1:8 -要报应那不认识神,和那不听从我主耶稣福音的人。
帖撒后1:9 -他们要受刑罚,就是永远沉沦,离开主的面和他权能的荣光。

小结一下:

  • 当耶稣从天上显,他会惩罚那些不认识和不听从福音的人。[请看下面,“耶稣的救赎”]
  • 他们要遭受永远的沉沦。

 

4.什么时候世界末日到来?

没有古代预言能预知世界末日的到来,因为没有人知道什么时候神会来。

彼得后3:10但主的日子要像贼来到一样。那日天必大有响声废去,有形质的都要被烈火销化。地和其上的物都要烧尽了。

  • 耶稣像贼一样来到-没有人预料到是什么时候。

帖撒前5:1 –弟兄们,论到时候日期,不用写信给你们。
帖撒前5:2 –因为你们自己明明晓得,主的日子来到,好像夜间的贼一样。
帖撒前5:3 -人正说平安稳妥的时候,灾祸忽然临到他们,如同叁难临到怀胎的妇人一样,他们绝不能逃脱。

  • 再一次,耶稣会像贼一样来到-没有人可以预料到。

 

5.基督徒应该做什么?


马太福音28:18 –耶稣进前来,对他们说,天上,地下所有的权柄,都赐给我了。
马太福音28:19 –所以你们要去,使万民作我的门徒,奉父子圣灵的名,给他们施洗。(或作给他们施洗归于父子圣灵的名)
马太福音28:20 –凡我所吩咐你们的,都教训他们遵守,我就常与你们同在,直到世界的末了。

  • 我们应该教导他们,给他们施洗,直到世界的末了。

彼得前书4:13 - 倒要欢喜。因为你们是与基督一同受苦,使你们在他荣耀显现的时候,也可以欢喜快乐。

  • 我们应该充满欢喜地迎接基督的到来。

彼得后书3:12 -切切仰望神的日子来到。在那日天被烧就销化了,有形质的都要被烈火熔化。

  • 我们应该仰望他的到来。

启示录22:20 -证明这事的说,是了。我必快来。阿们。主耶稣阿,我愿你来。

  • 我们应该为他的到来祈祷。

6. 小结

  • 神掌控世界并在他的旨意中运作。
  • 世界只有在神的旨意中结束-当耶稣再来的时候。
  • 没有人知道什么时候耶稣再来,因为他像“贼”一样到来。
  • 就在一刹那发生-不是几天,几个小时,甚至几分钟。
  • 得救的唯一的路是相信基督。
  • 任何不相信神且不遵从福音的人将会被定罪。
  • 基督徒必须教授福音,直到主的到来。

 

因此,不要担心电影或预言,而是相信基督。

2012

The movie 2012 has many wondering about the end of the world. This article is written to encourage Christians not to worry. No ancient “prophecies” can foretell the end of the world because the world will only end when Jesus returns. When will He return? What will happen? Who will be saved? Please read the answers from the Bible below.

1. The earth will be destroyed, but it will only happen when Jesus comes
No random disease or natural disaster will destroy the world. God is a God of order and purpose, and He made the universe with purpose (Genesis 1:1; 1 Corinthians 14:33); your life has a purpose (Jeremiah 29:11-14); and the world will end – not by accident, but with purpose: when God decides.

The Bible says:

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall be dissolved with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2Pe 3:11  Seeing that these things are thus all to be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy living and godliness,
2Pe 3:12  looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of God, by reason of which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

Summary:

  • Jesus will return like a thief, this means no one will expect Him.
  • When Jesus comes, the heavens will pass away, the elements will dissolve and all the earth will be destroyed.
  • This is will happen.
  • Only God who can save you. Trust Him.

 

2. Whoever trusts in Jesus will be saved

If the world is destroyed, who will be saved and how? The Bible says: [See, “Why we can trust the Bible” below]

1Th 4:13  But we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning them that fall asleep; that ye sorrow not, even as the rest, who have no hope.
1Th 4:14  For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also that are fallen asleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
1Th 4:15  For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we that are alive, that are left unto the coming of the Lord, shall in no wise precede them that are fallen asleep.
1Th 4:16  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven, with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first;
1Th 4:17  then we that are alive, that are left, shall together with them be caught up in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
1Th 4:18  Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

Summary:

  • Christians always have hope.
  • We have hope because even if we die, we can rise again – just as Jesus did.
  • In fact, those who have already died in Jesus – these are Christians who are “asleep” – will return with Jesus.
  • When Jesus returns, there will be a shout from the voice of the archangel, the trumpet call of God, and those “asleep” in Jesus will arise first.
  • The Christians who are still alive will be meet Jesus in the air.
  • We will be with God forever.
  • We should comfort each other with these words.

Here is another explanation of the same event:

1Co 15:50  Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
1Co 15:51  Behold, I tell you a mystery: We all shall not sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1Co 15:52  in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
1Co 15:53  For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
1Co 15:54  But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
1Co 15:55  O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?
1Co 15:56  The sting of death is sin; and the power of sin is the law:
1Co 15:57  but thanks be to God, who giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
1Co 15:58  Wherefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not vain in the Lord.

Summary:

  • Our physical bodies cannot go to heaven because mortal bodies cannot inherit immortality.
  • But not everyone will die – or “sleep.”
  • Those who are still alive when Jesus returns will be changed.
  • It will happen in a flash. It will not take days, hours – or even minutes.
  • The trumpet will sound and those who have already died in Jesus – Christians - will resurrect with immortal bodies.
  • We who are still alive will too receive immortal bodies.
  • Death will have no victory or sting because Jesus took away the law – and therefore the sin – that condemned us.
  • Thanks be to God!
  • So, we Christians continue to do good because nothing we do for God is meaningless.

 

3. What will happen to those who do not trust in Jesus?

The above explains what will happen to Christians. What about people who do not trust Jesus?

2Th 1:7  …and to you that are afflicted rest with us, at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with the angels of his power in flaming fire,
2Th 1:8  rendering vengeance to them that know not God, and to them that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus:
2Th 1:9  who shall suffer punishment, even eternal destruction from the face of the Lord and from the glory of his might,

Summary:

  • When Jesus is revealed from heaven He will punish those who do not know God and have not obeyed the gospel. [See, how to “Jesus Saves” below]
  • They will suffer eternal destruction.

 

4. When will this happen?

No ancient prophecies can foretell the end of the world, because no one knows when Jesus will come.

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall be dissolved with fervent heat, and the earth and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

  • Jesus will come as a thief – no one knows when.

1Th 5:1  But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that aught be written unto you.
1Th 5:2  For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
1Th 5:3  When they are saying, Peace and safety, then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall in no wise escape.

  • Again, Jesus will come as a thief – when no one expects Him.

 

5. What should Christians do?

Mat 28:18  And Jesus came to them and spake unto them, saying, All authority hath been given unto me in heaven and on earth.
Mat 28:19  Go  therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit:
Mat 28:20  teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I commanded you: and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.

  • We should be teaching and baptizing people until the end of the world.

1Pe 4:13  but insomuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings, rejoice; that at the revelation of his glory also ye may rejoice with exceeding joy.

  • We should look forward with joy to Jesus’ return

2Pe 3:12  looking for and earnestly desiring the coming of the day of God, by reason of which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

  • We should desire His return

Rev 22:20  He who testifieth these things saith, Yea: I come quickly. Amen: come, Lord Jesus.

  • We should pray for His return

 

6. Summary:

  • God is in control and works in this world with purpose.
  • The world will only end God purposes – when Jesus returns.
  • No one knows when Jesus will return because He will come like a “thief.”
  • It will happen in a flash – it will not take days, hours, or even minutes.
  • The only way to be saved is to trust in Jesus.
  • Anyone who does not know God and does not obey the gospel will be condemned.
  • Christians must teach the gospel until Jesus returns.

 

So, don’t worry about movies or prophecies. Rather trust in Jesus.
