It is darkest night. You are travelling along in a fast train full of people. Everyone is laughing and drinking and having a good time. A stranger stands up and calls for attention. When the crowd is silent, he tells them he has evidence there is danger ahead. Not too far down the line, the train will go across a wide ravine. Hundreds of feet below, the river rages in full torrent. Some of the track is missing and the train is doomed to plunge into the flood below with fatal consequences. Before the train reaches the river, it will make one final stop at where those who wish to can get off -then it will speed on to its final doom…”

As we begin the 21st century, the evidence around us would suggest that the World is hurtling headlong into disaster. Daily on TV and in newspapers people are alarmed at what they see. In almost every country in the World lawlessness is on the increase. In the United States of America alone, there are over thirty thousand murders per year and the numbers are rising. There are one thousand five hundred abortions and a thousand teenage pregnancies every day in the US. Rape, violent crime and drug abuse is rising daily and tearing apart the very fabric of society in countries worldwide. From wars to famines, from nuclear threats to global warming, the evidence of imminent danger surrounds us.
Scientists tell us that the World cannot support the growth in population. The amount of children born in China every three months is equivalent to the whole population of Ireland, about four million. By the year 2040, the population of the World will have doubled from what it is today, to almost twelve billion people. At the same time we are beginning to feel the effects of global warming because of the expansion of the hole in the ozone layer. Only ten years ago this hole was the size of Holland; today it is bigger than the whole of Europe. As a result, skin cancer and other related diseases are on the increase in many places and governments are warning people to use sun barrier creams or to stay out of the harmful rays of the sun.
Diseases that we thought we had conquered forever are re-emerging. These include cholera, TB and malaria, which are spreading and killing in great numbers once again. Doctors are alarmed that antibiotics are becoming ineffective because of over-use. The spread of Aids is rapidly increasing in most countries and is endemic in others. Scientists have predicted that by the year 2020, sixty million people will have full blown Aids in Africa alone. To date, 25 million have died of Aids in Africa alone. The threat of a Bird-Flu pandemic has the World medical community on high alert. Add to this the rise in the number of people dying from cancer and heart failure and we have a gloomy picture of a sick planet that is getting worse.
War and violence surround us. It seems that almost daily our news bulletins show graphic images of nations waging war on their neighbours and other tribes, slaughtering men, women and children with an evil that is hard to contemplate or understand. At present, there are hundreds of conflicts going on all over the globe and the potential for war is evident in the hatred that is simmering beneath the surface in many other areas.
Famine and death stalk the ravaged landscape in the Third World. While the developed world is so rich that we could land men on the moon, millions live in squalor and die for want of a little food and fresh water. It seems the World is like a great ship; while the rich eat, drink and dance on the upper deck, they seem oblivious to the poor and depraved who wallow in the hold beneath, impoverished in the dark night of the soul.
How long can our small planet endure the endless pursuit of profit at the expense of our natural resources? The rain forests are vital to the air that we breathe, yet every 5 minutes an area the size of a football pitch is cut down in the name of profit. Many of our rivers are so polluted that nothing can live or survive in them, and in certain countries most of the rivers are little more than sewers used only as dumps for industrial waste. In Norway there are lakes so dead that no trace of living organisms or plants can be found in them. This is because of the pollution caused by the environmental disaster of Chernobyl. Traces of nuclear fallout can still be found in trout caught in the small mountain lakes of the West of Ireland because of the same accident. The late Mr Jacques Cousteau, world renowned marine biologist, recently said that marine life deteriorated by fifty per cent in his lifetime because of the damage done to the oceans by man.
Add to these all the other ills that we witness in society today; the rise of marriage breakup and suicides, murder, widespread crime, pornography, child abuse, lack of discipline in schools, widespread promiscuity and the lack of morals...the list goes on.
Can the World avoid the holocaust that appears to be inevitable or is there any solution to the destruction which seems to be ahead? Is there any hope for mankind or are we doomed to failure? Jesus Christ and other biblical prophets have told us exactly what is going to happen in the future. Some of the things they said would happen include:
· a huge increase in wars worldwide.
· global famine and hunger.
· increases in earthquakes and environmental catastrophes.
· rampant diseases causing widespread death.
· no drinking water in one third of all countries.
· . one third of all land scorched so no one can grow crops.
· a world leader will arise demanding absolute allegiance.
· a great army from the East numbering two hundred million will slaughter up to two billion people.
· the greatest battle in all history will begin in a valley called
