The bible is not a book of predictions, about doom and destruction. It is only a historical account of what happened during the course of civilisation
of a particular ethnic group of humans. There were deaths and annihilations, but there also courage and victory, of both king and the common man, as
rely by prophets and divine messengers of an ancient past.
But more critical of all, there lays a message from our common Creator to humanity on the right path towards civilisation and fulfillment of our
destiny, of His love and hope for all mankind given the gift of life, love and free will, and had sent divine messengers, both in divine as well as
mortal form, that we may know the way to light and love from the darkness we flawed mortals from time to time abuse the priviledge of free will and
turn brother against brother.
No doubt certain paragraphs or chapters tells man of impending dooms, of signs and wonders to portends to doom, of who is alive or who will be dead,
but still, their purpose is to pass the message to humankind to be prepared, not to put fear for those who had hurt or harm no one, or if they had, to
seek for salvation and redemption that our Creator had freely and kindly given and assured to His children through the Messiah, to let those others
whom knows not our Creator's love to return to the fold, and face what is to come courageously as one united humankind so that ALL can be saved, less
those who persists in using the power of free will to harm others.
If you had read the Bible closely and attentively, you would have realized that our Creator is most merciful, ever ready to forgive His children, and
had many times attempted to wake up humanity. But it is our darksides that failed His love, and as justice must be served for those innocents harm,
And yet, he had never abandon us throughout centuries, jews, muslims, christians, buddhists, hindus, spiritualists, atheists, etc whom had only been
worshipping Him throughout, for He has many names and many forms across geological and social developement barriers.
And today, as we saw portending signs of doom in our skies and earth, we trembled with fear, and ask ourselves - is this the end? None knows, not even
the divine Teachers. Will our Creator wipe us all out, as is His right, the way an artist has the right to crumple up his works if he found it
horrible and offensive, unfit to be published or preserved?
All I do know is that our Creator loves us all, for which father would not love his own children? and throughout historical records, He, with His
might and glory, has the power to stop or to proceed, had and was willing to stop the destruction of Soddom and Gommorah through the pleading of Lot.
It was delayed, but eventually destroyed when none would return to His fold.
That final act towards mankind is His and His alone to make, and every divine Teacher, whom are NOT Him, but are only messengers, who had been sent
had admitted to it, even if their predictions had not come to pass.'Not my will, Lord, but Thine' - had been the Messiah's prayer.
And that's the message of the bible that we this educated generation was supposed to figure out - the truth, and no more the misinterpretations by
princes and principalities who have agendas of their own, just as the inhabitants of soddom and gommorah had.
