Prophecy happening right now? Could we be living in the end of days? Well many people whom art devout of there faith see our world as a place in deed of collapse. From the growing population over 7 billion to the increase of wars and famines. To the increase of technology. All the way to the collapse of our traditions and family values. I see that we live in what the prophets foretold. I have read the beliefs of three of the worlds most powerful religions Islam, Christianity and Judaism. In Islam the end of the world begins when humans create buildings as tall as mountains and as the trumpets of the angels sound as all of humanity will be judges. In Judaism the end will come when peace will be all around the earth. Soon that peace will be broken and huamnity will be on the verge of world war three. Christianity is when the beast and the false prophet return to destroy and persecute many of the followers of god. Well these signs are pretty much happening right now. From the waters of the earth turning black. To even rivers turning as the color blood. Maybe our world is changing, but I want you all to be the Judge of our future. The question I give all of you is "what are your predictions" ? Anyone can foresee disaster all we need is to seek the truth, or are we therefore the culprit?

The thing about prophecies is that first, they can be misread, and second, they can be reinterpreted based on events as we see them. Some of it is coincidence, and and the rest is bending these so called prophecies to match actual events, so that it looks like the prophetic events are happening.

I agree with above posts that say that worrying about the end of world is not the best use of the current time we have. Live like you don't know how many days you or the ones you love have -- there are no certainties in life in regards to that, but that knowledge in and of itself can impact the way you live. It's all about the living, not the worrying about the dying.

People have been forecasting the end at least since the time of Jesus.  It is very hard to take seriously the idea that this time we really are faced with the end times.  Jesus said that no one knows when the end will happen, so I fail to see why people continue to try to predict it.  The world is not worse now than it was 100 or 1000 years ago.  It's not as if now is the first time that we have had all these things happen like are predicted in Revelation.  We might as well focus on issues that really have a good chance of happening, not ones that might happen tomorrow or might not happen for 10,000 years.

My predictions for the world are non-existent. I figure that living in fear of what is to come is not a healthy way to live life. Instead, I choose to live thankfully for every day I am given. Without this philosophy, I believe that life would simply be to overwhelming to exist. Outside of the normal hassles of life (like bills, grading, and deadlines), I wish to not think about the "what-ifs" and simply concentrate on the gifts.
