Then the End
Solomon said that the end of a thing is better than the beginning (Ecclesiastes 7:8). We rejoice at births and weep at deaths, but even that end can be better than the beginning. Paul said for him to die was gain (Philippians 1:21).
There is an end coming to the world just as surely as there was a beginning. Paul spoke of the end to come (1 Corinthians 15:24), as did Jesus (Matthew 10:22). Have you pondered what the end will be like? No one knows when it will be (Matthew25:13), but we are told what will happen when it comes.

JESUS WILL RETURN (John 14:1-3; Acts 1:9-11). Every eye will see Him (Revelation 1:7) as He comes in glory to sit on His judgment throne (Matthew 25:31-33; 2 Peter 3:10). His return will be with a great shout, the voice of the archangel, and the trump of God (1 Thessalonians 4:16; 5:1-3).
THE DEAD WILL BE RAISED (1 Corinthians 15;
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). An hour is coming in which all that are in the graves shall hear the Lord’s voice and be raised (John 5:28-29; Revelation 20:12-15).
THE LIVING WILL BE CHANGED (1Corinthians 15:51). Those alive at the return of Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) must have bodies transformed into incorruptible nature (Philippians 3:21).
THE EARTH WILL BE DESTROYED (Matthew 24:35). The earth will be removed (Revelation 21:1), and event Peter connects to the Lord’s return (2 Peter 3:10). The heavens will pass away with a great noise, the elements will melt with fervent heat, and the earth and works therein burned up.
THE JUDGMENT WILL TAKE PLACE (Matthew 25:31-33). All will appear before Christ’s judgment seat (2 Corinthians 5:10), small and great (Revelation 20:12). Every person will give account to Him (Romans 14:11-12).
THE KINGDOM WILL BE DELIVERED UP TO THE FATHER. Christ presently reigns over His kingdom, the church (Colossians 1:18; Acts 2:34-36). When the end comes Christ will usher the faithful of His kingdom into the very presence of God and heaven itself (1 Corinthians 15:24). Think of it!
THE WICKED WILL BE SEPARATED (Matthew 25:41, 46). This place of everlasting shame, contempt, smoke, pain, and torment will be forever.
My friend, what will be your fate when the end comes?
