  • The end being the end of this system of things, being the wicked world we are living in right now. This system is being ran by satan 1john 5:19. At some point which we do not know God will step back in and do away with satan and all his wickedness. Mark 13:32. Also God saves only those who exercise faith in the ransom sacrifice of Jesus and closely follow Jesus’ teachings.Acts 4:10-12 at the end of all this we have life waiting for us the way God meant for it to be in the beginning. Ps 37; 10-11, 29

  • If you live a Christian lifestyle (ie. deliberately avoiding sin, deliberately avoiding the near occasion of sin, and repenting for the sins you do commit) until you die, then you will enter Heaven.

    The end of what? Our life. Saved for what? Heaven.

  • This passage is speaking of the end of the age and we as Christians are experiencing the ecstasy (joy) of salvation every day, we are continually being transformed, saved and going from glory to glory every day.

  • In the passages before this verse Jesus was referring to the signs of the last days of this system of things under Satan's control. He was telling his disciples what things would indicate that they were in that time period. If you look further down to verse 21 he speaks of a "great tribulation" that will occur. According to the scriptures, this Great tribulation comes just before Armageddon. See also Daniel 12:1 which also discusses the tribulation; 2 Timothy 3:1-5,13 identifying features of the last days, as well as Revelation 7:9,13,14 and Revelation16:14,16 which discuss those who survive the Great Tribulation and Armageddon. These will usher in the "new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell."

  • Haven't you ever read about Noah and the Ark. Apparently with scripture, you're just missing the boat.

  • I would have to say "trials and tribulations", (whether they be at the end of the world or not). Through "much tribulation" shall we enter into the Kingdom (Acts 14:22).
