The End Times...

One day, the end will come:

"Behold, I tell you a mystery. We shall not all fall asleep, but we will all be changed, in an instant, in the blink of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."  -1 Corinthians 15:51-52, NAB

When I was a Protestant, I was fascinated with the "End Times" scenario.  I read book after boook on the subject, and it completely grabbed my interest.  As a Catholic, my interest has not gone away, but my focus has shifted elsewhere.  

Theologically, there are some fundamental differences between the Catholic and Protestant views of the End Times.  Personally, I have not wrapped my head around this deep subject enough to spend much time explaining it here, but it is a subject that I definitely want to learn more about.

Without covering what happens, when it happens, why it happens, et cetera, I think that the main point of ever studying prophecy, Revelations, and the End Times scenario is simply to prepare ourselves.  The day will come when the world as we know it comes to an end.  Like anything, fear often comes from a lack of preparation and from the unknown.  But, if we are prepared, the fear will go away.

How can we be prepared?  While stock-piling food and water is a good idea, it is not enough.  Building a fallout shelter is another idea, but it might be overkill.  All we truly need to do is set our hearts and minds on the Lord, each and every day.  We need to get our lives right with God.  No amount of worldly preparation can prepare us for heavenly judgment.  Be vigilent.  Prepare yourself for the coming of the Lord, for we do not know the time or hour that He will return.
