But, according to the bible, there is coming an absolute end to the entire physical universe. Those who believe the Bible, know the Truth. Those who don't, think those who do are crazy. Those who do think those who don't, are crazy.

I am fully convinced the Bible is the Word from GOD. If you want to know my beliefs, study the Bible. You answer the question!
Greetings, joedrsaved. Could you please present the Scriptures that lead you to believe that there will be "an absolute end to the entire physical universe?

Thanks!

We do and we know God is not going to destroy his creation...he is going to reconcile it to himself

I believe you are correct. People often mix up the true meaning of the Bible's use of the word for world and associate it with the physical planet Earth. I like to illustrate it this way. We all live in physical houses. But often we think of people and the physical surroundings in the House as a home. How often do we hear about the closeness of a family that can make a house a home ???

Let's just take the book of John for example. The english word for 'world' here is the Greek word, 'kosmos' and it is defined this way in "The New International Dictionary of New testament Theology"
It defines "the noun 'kosmos' denoted originally building, but more especially order." It also has specific definitions as "ornament and adornment" , "the regulation of life in human society" , the inhabitants of the earth, humanity".

An example of the world of manknd in general would be Jesus explain the "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son" . John 3:16 . However, the world most often spoken about is the world of mankind alienated from God. When it comes to our planet Earth, there is nothing wrong with it, it's the custodians or human caretakers who have failed it. If any of us had the power to snap our fingers and make mankind disappear, the planet has the ability to heal itself and recovery from ecological abuse by man. So the planet & universe are not what needs replacing. It's some of mankind that need elimination. Unfortunately we've got the Fire & Brimstone clergy who are bent on total destruction of things philosophy and anyone or anything that don't meet their personal standards of things will be literally burned with fire. Fortunately the bible has a different view for the future of our Earth.

Thank you for forwarding this information. However, I need no interpretations of the Book of Revelations. Let me ask you a question; Is it not possible that the Son of Man walks the Earth now? In the wake of all the catastrophic events plaguing mankind, I would think these events are happening because he is here already. Did not God say that he will destroy the Web of nations (banking system)? For I have all the faith in the world that God's Word is at hand.
