I believe in God and spirituality, Karma and all that. I just wonder why do we have this Bible that predicts..

total chaos and doomsday ??? It’s depressing to know that our world is headed in the wrong direction and will just get worse. So, you kinda have to be in somewhat of a state of denial in order to try and live your life to the fullest and try to be happy….that is, if you believe all that the Bible predicts. I wonder if MAN just wrote what he wanted and misinterpreted some things they were supposed to write in the Bible. Who knows ? It’s all kinda crazy to me. What do you have to say to make me gain a clearer perspective on why we were given this book of doomsday…when God is Creator and all-knowing and knew that this is the way the world would turn out…what’s the point ? I know…to find out which ones will choose eternal life with God or that other road that leads to the devil, to hell. Please enlighten me…
One answerer stated that God and Karma/Spirituality do not go together…well, Karma is “What goes around, comes around” and I believe that God uses “Karma” to teach us lessons in life. Also, how can you say that “spirituality” is not from God ?

Every generation believes that they’re the last generation, but they’ve each been wrong.

The world is in a moral tailspin, but you can’t be drawn into it. Living life to the fullest can mean many things, but for me, it means keeping myself happy in a way that is both pleasing to me and the Divine. When He’s happy, you’ll be happy too.

Don’t worry, you’ll have all of eternity to be enlightened in Hell little miss question-the-bible.

God is the author of the Bible. He let you know what He expects from you and He gave you a choice. Life doesn’t revolve around the depressing things. Live can be gloriously wonderful if you make the right decision.

Because at the end it will be much like the days before the Flood. Those who will be here will be wicked, and their wickedness will reach such a great level that the Lord will no longer tolerate it and will put an end to it.

Watchman

Man needs to know they can not live without God and man will destroy themselves. That’s what’s being predicted. But man wil never believe it until they actually destroy themselves so we wait.
World Wars
3 Jesus foretold that ‘nation would rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.’ (Matthew 24:7) In 1914 the world became involved in a war that saw the mobilizing of nations and kingdoms in a way that was different from any war before it. In recognition of that fact, historians at the time called it the Great War. It was the first war of its kind in history, the first world war. Some 20,000,000 soldiers and civilians lost their lives, far more than in any previous war.
4 World War I marked the beginning of the last days. Jesus said that this and other events would be “a beginning of pangs of distress.” (Matthew 24:8) That proved true, as World War II was even more deadly, some 50,000,000 soldiers and civilians losing their lives. In this 20th century, well over 100,000,000 people have been killed in wars, more than four times as many as in the previous 400 years put together! What an enormous condemnation of human rule!
Other Evidences
5 Jesus included other features that would accompany the last days: “There will be great earthquakes, and in one place after another pestilences [disease epidemics] and food shortages.” (Luke 21:11) That well fits events since 1914, as there has been a huge increase in the distresses from such calamities.
6 Major earthquakes are regular occurrences, taking many lives. The Spanish influenza alone killed about 20,000,000 people following World War I–some estimates being 30,000,000 or more. AIDS has taken hundreds of thousands of lives and could take millions more in the near future. Each year millions of people die of heart ailments, cancer, and other diseases. Millions more die the slow death of hunger. Without a doubt the ‘horsemen of the Apocalypse’ with their wars, food shortages, and disease epidemics have been cutting down large numbers of the human family since 1914.–Revelation 6:3-8.
7 Jesus also foretold the increase in crime that is experienced in all lands. He said: “Because of the increasing of lawlessness the love of the greater number will cool off.”–Matthew 24:12.
8 Further, Bible prophecy foretold the moral collapse so evident throughout the world today: “In the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here. For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, self-assuming, haughty, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, disloyal, having no natural affection, not open to any agreement, slanderers, without self-control, fierce, without love of goodness, betrayers, headstrong, puffed up with pride, lovers of pleasures rather than lovers of God, having a form of godly devotion but proving false to its power . . . Wicked men and impostors will advance from bad to worse.” (2 Timothy 3:1-13) All of that has come true right before our eyes.
Another Factor
9 There is another factor responsible for the huge increase in suffering in this century. Coinciding with the beginning of the last days in 1914, something happened to put mankind in even greater danger. At that time, as a prophecy in the last book of the Bible relates: “War broke out in heaven: Michael [Christ in heavenly power] and his angels battled with the dragon [Satan], and the dragon and its angels [the demons] battled but it did not prevail, neither was a place found for them any longer in heaven. So down the great dragon was hurled, the original serpent, the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire inhabited earth; he was hurled down to the earth, and his angels were hurled down with him.”–Revelation 12:7-9.
10 What were the consequences for the human family? The prophecy continues: “Woe for the earth and for the sea, because the Devil has come down to you, having great anger, knowing he has a short period of time.” Yes, Satan knows that his system is nearing its end, so he is doing everything he can to turn humans against God before he and his world are put out of the way. (Revelation 12:12; 20:1-3) How debased those spirit creatures are because they misused their free will! How awful conditions have been on earth under their influence, especially since 1914!
11 It is no wonder that Jesus foretold of our time: “On the earth anguish of nations, not knowing the way out . . . Men become faint out of fear and expectation of the things coming upon the inhabited earth.”–Luke 21:25, 26.

I believe that the Bible is true. True and inspired Word of God. It is very clear about the way to the Father’s house. Only by the mercy and grace of God, we just need to accept it. And when we accept it, we also want to do good. Jesus is the way and the truth and the life. If you want to be with God after this short period here, Let Him know that you are coming when it is the time. It is that simple..it is not an easy way, but very simple.

whynotaskdon

You stated=
“I believe in God and spirituality, Karma and all that.””
then you state =
‘””I just wonder why do we have this Bible””
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
–YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS BIBLE !
The Bible is The Book of Jews and Christians…neither of them. or us, believe in KARMA and spirituality!
Then you write = ” It’s all kinda crazy to me. ”
IT CERTAINLY IS!

First, Satan who used to be one of God’s most powerful angels(a cherubim) chose by his free-will to disobey God. Then a third of the angels chose by their free-will to join Satan in his rebellion and disobey God by their free-will. Then Satan tempted Eve and Adam and Eve and Adam chose by their free-will to disobey God, and so has every human since. God cursed the ground and limited human’s life span. One reason is that people lived for 900 years, then there would be a lot of sins and their punishment would be great, but God limited our lifespans. Also, those who choose God don’t have to wait so long to go to Heaven and we don’t have to deal with temptation very long. There are a lot of other reasons too that God knows. Death and suffering are the results of our sin against God. Sin has a lot of bad consequences. For example, if a person chooses to murder someone, then that negatively affects the victim and the victim’s family. But without free-will, love would be rendered meaningless. If God forced us to love Him, then it wouldn’t be real love, so He gave us free-will, the ability to choose either to respond to Him or to reject Him. He enables us to love Him if we choose to respond to Him. http://www.equip.org

The bible talks about doomsday, yes.
But it’s not a doomsday book, it’s a book of love, forgivness, and mercy.
See God knows what will happen, but it was never His plan for anyone to go to Hell. He just knew that some would choose to do that. And the earth isn’t going to be destroyed, if you read Daniel, Revelation and some of Paul’s letters to the church, you see that the earth will be transformed to something new and better.
The only people the bible speaks doomsday to is unbelievers and those who follow satan and his angels.
God loves you very much and He wants to have a relationship with you—-if you let Him.

Phil 4:8
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.

Ahem. People speak of “the” Bible as if there’s only one holy book. Whoa. There are dozens. The Baghavad Gita. The Holy Qu’ran. The Book of Mormon. Dianetics. Science and Health. The Analects of Confucius. The Egyptian Books of the Dead. The Upanishads. Oh, you mean you want us to imagine that there’s only *one* Bible? LOL. Get a life, guys. Open your eyes and look at reality.

wacky_racer

Reality check. Is the predictions already on us? As for me, it is already and the climate is changing at the phase that the scientist could not ignore… the predictions are a reality now and it is for us to heed it to repent. We should do all that we can do to save the world. As from my information, 50 years is the lifespan which would make the world chaotic.

Because man wrote it then interpreted it for power and control.
Believe nothing just because a so-called wise person said it.
Believe nothing just because a belief is generally held.
Believe nothing just because it is said in ancient books.
Believe nothing just because it is said to be of divine origin.
Believe nothing just because someone else believes it.
Believe only what you yourself test and judge to be true
Love & Blessings

Given your opening statement, I have to wander what, exactly, it is you do believe in. God, spirituality and Karma aren’t the same things at all.
I believe the Bible to be God’s inspired Word, meaning I believe He directed it to be written just the way it is. Yes, there may be flaws or mistakes in it, i.e. interpreted incorrectly, grammatical errors but those would be human errors not Godly errors. But given the amount of ancient text we have supporting each Book of the Bible, what God wanted in there, is in there.
We are given the book of Revelation as a warning and as a sign of what is to come. Your question……….what’s the point? seems to me the question you really want answered here. The point is we are each given so much time here on earth to do what we will, good or bad. Eternity begins for us the moment we were born. We, by our choices, will choose where we are going to spend the greater amount of time given to us. Yes, God knows how it’s going to turn out and you want to know why He bothered. He bothered because He loves us that much. Enough to give us free will. Do we really want to worship a God who would force us to love Him? Wouldn’t that make it a burdensome chore? Think of how you choose to be with certain people. If they demanded your attention, your time, your commitment wouldn’t you soon find yourself avoiding them? God lets us make that same choice. But He loves us enough to tell us what will happen if we make the wrong choice. God doesn’t want automated robots. He wants us to freely choose to love Him, just as He freely chose to die on the cross for us. The nails didn’t keep Him on that cross, love did.
And, if things are getting worse, maybe we could postpone the worst by following His directives, to love one another as He loved us. Not a bad thing to strive for, is it? We have no idea how one small seed planted could actually start an epidemic of kindness somewhere.

hisgloryisgreat

What and who was he misinterpreting if it is the case that some of the writers of the bible were doing that?
We are free to believe or reject the knowledge that sin in our lives separates us from God, and to repent of it and accept salvation through faith in Jesus knowing that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Prophesy is a way for people to know and be prepared for what is to come. Knowing that the end is coming creates a sense of urgency about life and signs pointing to the nearness of the end of time that fulfill prophesy make people take notice of God.
