The world of 2021 seems uncertain and unstable in almost every way. At times like this people begin asking, is the end of the world near? After reviewing some of the famous end of the world predictions of history Mr. Smith shows us that when the Bible speaks of the end of the world, it does not mean the destruction of the world but means the end of this present age of human rule that will be replaced by the kingdom of God. Stressful times lie ahead but the knowledge God has given us of the future should help us remain close to God so that we can have a part in bringing about the great future that lies ahead for this world.
