The Beginning of the End

Is this the beginning of the end? I am beginning to think it could be.

Look around at the world today. This week alone there was another devastating hurricane and earthquake. There is a legitimate chance that we could find ourselves in a nuclear war, a true war to end all wars, and with it the world as we know it.

But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. – Mt: 24:36

I understand that we don’t know when the end will come. But all the signs seem to be there.

Then he said to them, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. – Luke 21:10

Is it to late to turn this around? I guess if we are looking forward to getting to Heaven we might say “Let it happen” but are you sure you will get to Heaven? Are you ready to take the chance that you may be going to Hell instead? Even if you will eventually go to Heaven you still need to spend some time in Purgatory, and wouldn’t it be better if you spend as little time there as possible?

I know I’m not ready. I still have a lot of work to do. Not that I won’t accept the final judgement that is handed out to me, I accept responsibility for my actions and my sins, but I’m still working on improving every day. In other words, I am trying to live with the end in mind.

How about you?
