It's been December 21 on earth for over 24 hours now (it's December 22 already in Kiribati).

Turns out the those predictions about the end of the world coming on December 21 were wrong.

NASA's video explains that the hoopla about the Mayan long count calendar was just a misinterpretation of what that calendar actually means. They were so confident the world wouldn't end, they posted the video last week!

 

 

Of course, from a biblical point of view, we know there's some stuff left that needs to happen before the end of the world can happen.

I think the challenge here is to not let this failed prediction wear our sense of urgency for living God's way down. One of these days, the actual end of this age will come—not just a "crying of wolf."

Let's fill our lamps with oil (Matthew 25:1-13 Matthew 25:1-13 [1] Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened to ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. [2] And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. [3] They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: [4] But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. [5] While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. [6] And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom comes; go you out to meet him. [7] Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. [8] And the foolish said to the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. [9] But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go you rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. [10] And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. [11] Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. [12] But he answered and said, Truly I say to you, I know you not. [13] Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man comes.
