The world is NOT ending this weekend

Once you're ready spiritually and physically...you're ready. After that, it's physical and spiritual maintenance, constant improvement and enjoying life
For those who haven't heard, there's a bunch of buzz over tomorrow night's "super blood moon" and various other signs of the times as indicators that the rapture is nigh. Mormons in particular have been getting caught up in this latest panic to the point where church leadership issued a statement telling the minority who were freaking out to calm themselves down. The freak out hasn't been limited to my Latter-day Saint peoples of course; many others are getting their panic buying on.

There are a lot of bad things going on in the world right now that one could certainly see as signs that the end is near. I am totally with you. And convincing arguments can certainly be woven by using scripture, historical records and some good story telling.

However, before you get carried away, take a look at this long list of failed apocalyptic prophesies for some perspective. People have been prophesying the end of the world for a couple thousand years now. Nobody has been right yet.

After this weekend, they'll be adding another line item to that list.

The KJV is pretty clear on apocalyptic predictions: But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

But I suppose the prophets of doom disregard that verse.

Trying to predict the end of days or foresee cataclysmic events is a waste of time and mental energies.

Instead, prepare what you need, physically and spiritually.  Be ready and stay ready for tough times--they will come, and you probably won't be able to see 'em coming. Be ready to meet God, whether that's tomorrow or 60 years from now. 

The timing and nature of these things is out of your hands. Control what you can, don't sweat the rest.
