Subjects like war, extreme human suffering, and the total destruction of the world seem too difficult to reframe in a positive light so I have always tended to block them out of my mind. But gradually my mind is becoming more courageous, I think. And these particular thoughts came to me when I was trying to find purpose in my life. I wonder why I should think I have a purpose that is intertwined with the destiny of the world in some significant way. But then again, I never did claim NOT to be grandious at times.

You and Me and the End of the WorldMy role is probably not to find answers, but to ask questions. I think I am an insightful person, someone with some knowledge, within the limited scope of my own areas of expertise. I’m not a prophet, a brilliant person, or someone with a passion to seek outanswers.But insights and questions come to my mind. I believe there will be great changes withinthe next few years, frightening, drastic changes. Possibly the fulfillment of end time prophecies.A number of years ago, this question came to my mind: Is the total destruction of our world inevitable? An image came to me as an answer, something from movies I had seen based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”. The Spirit of Christmas-Yet-To-Comewas asked by Mr. Scrooge if the grim future he had been shown was subject to change.He was given no answer. But acting on faith and hope, he took action even though hehad no guarantee that his actions would have any effect on his future.The answer to my question regarding end times prophecies seemed to be – yes, the futureis subject to change through human choice. But I don’t know. . . Like I said, I don’t believe my role is to find answers, just to ask questions.One question I would ask is this: Even if preventing the destruction of the world istheoretically possible, is it totally unrealistic to think that human beings really wouldmake the changes needed in order to rewrite our future?Another question would be – who, specifically, has the power to make a difference?World leaders? Prophets? Brilliant persons with a passion to find answers? Ordinary people?If changing the future is possible, how could it happen? And should it happen? Is thedestruction of our current world actually a good thing, and necessary in order to makeway for the new heaven and new earth?A question was asked in a documentary I recently watched on end time prophecies. Thequestion was: Would the ancient peoples have left this information for the people of our time, if there was really nothing at all that could be done to change the future, or at leastto prepare for it?I wonder if my role is to encourage and inspire those brilliant seekers of answers that Iknow personally. If they are troubled geniuses, is my role to help prevent them fromdestroying themselves before they have fulfilled their purpose in the great scheme of things?

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. Psalm 46:1-3
