One of the fundamental beliefs of Christianity is that our Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ will one day return, gather those alive on Earth that truly believed in Him (i.e., His Church), and then move them to be with Him forevermore! (1 Thessalonians 4:13-17) Consequently, inquiring minds throughout the ages have wondered WHEN this will occur (Matthew 24:3). Many had tried to predict WHEN this will occur, only to be proven wrong when their date passed without it transpiring.
“The world existing at that time was destroyed when it was deluged with water. But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, by being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly” (2 Peter 3:6-7).
