Once again the world failed to end when predicted on Feb. 22, 2014. This time, the prediction came from Norse mythology, which had held that “Ragnarok” would happen on that date. Ragnarok is the word in these ancient Norse texts for the supposed final battle between the gods that will supposedly end the world as we know it.
I’ve always found it interesting that, after all the strikingly visual symbolism of the book of Revelation, when Jesus is finally described as coming forth to make war on Satan and the forces of evil, there is not a prolonged description. There is no series of battles, no exchange of blows, no waging of war. Instead, the Word of God, represented by a sword coming forth from the mouth of Christ, ends the conflict immediately, once and for all. The Creator God, who spoke the world into being by his Word, will also bring about the end of this age and the beginning of the New Heaven and the New Earth, simply by His Word.That’s good news—not just for someday when the world may come to an end, but for today. Remember that no matter what you face, the Word of God is greater. He is truly the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
