Newsweek: 40% of Americans Believe the World Will End
In A Battle Between Jesus and the Antichrist at Armageddon

Newsweek 10/24/99


NEWSWEEK
This is the cover for the November 1 issue of Newsweek (on newsstands Monday, October 25). Newsweek looks at the Year 2000 and the History of Prophecy. There are also reports on the Gore/Bradley Democratic presidential race with the latest poll results, the new game show "Millionaire" and Chicago's drug cartel, "The Gangster Disciples."

NEW YORK, NY USA 10/23/1999

    NEW YORK, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Forty percent of all Americans and 45
percent of Christians believe that the world will end, as the Bible predicts,
in a battle at Armageddon between Jesus and the Antichrist, according to a new
Newsweek Poll on prophecy.  Fully, 71 percent of Evangelical Protestants, but
only 28 percent of non-Evangelical Protestants and 18 percent of Catholics
share that view.

The poll is part of the cover package, "Prophecy: What the Bible Says
About the End of the World," in the November 1 issue of Newsweek (on
newsstands Monday, October 25), which also includes articles by Religion
Editor Kenneth L. Woodward, on "The Way the World Ends," and "Millennium
Madness" by Senior Editor John Leland.  According to the poll, almost half of
believers in the Biblical prophecy of Armageddon (47%) think the Antichrist is
on earth now, and 45 percent of them believe Jesus will return to Earth in
their lifetime.  But, only a modest group --15 percent -- of believers in the
Armageddon prophecy -- or about 6 percent of all Americans -- think Jesus will
return as early as the year 2000.

In the poll, large majorities of believers in the second coming of Christ
believe that current events such as natural disasters (83%), epidemics like
AIDS and Ebola (66%) and outbreaks of violence like shootings (62%), are a
sign that it will happen soon.  An overwhelming majority of believers in a
second coming (95%) believe that, under such circumstances, it is important to
get right with God and a majority (65%) think it is important to convert non-
Christians.  However, less than half of believers (42%) think that converting
people to the Christian faith hastens the return of Jesus to Earth.  Among all
of those surveyed, 57 percent expect that people will be divided between
heaven and hell after the world ends.  An even larger majority (68%) expect
that they will be going to heaven.

For this Newsweek Poll, Princeton Research Associates interviewed
755 adults, 18 and older from October 21-22.  The margin of sampling error is
plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Sorry, the world will not end. After a period of time called the 7yr, tribulation... the book of Revelation, (Bible) says there will be peace for 1000 years.... And then God will make the Earth new again.

todays date is 11/27/2011. my thoughs are the world will explored, due to the earth being over heated.
The ice caps have been melting for years.
Take your car suck all the oil and water out of it. What happens? We are sucking the oil out of the earth at an alarming rate. Which is causing the earth to heat up. In Texas this summer we had 100 deg days in June. Texas usally start having 100 deg day in Auguest and September.
We also had an earth Quake in Texas and in Oklahoma. The end could today or 10 years, but it will be by fire and earth quake.
