People have long asked, "What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?"
Although we do not know the time, one thing we know for sure is that the Bible prophesies the end of the world as we know it.
In Matthew 24:3, Jesus was asked about the sign of His coming and the end of this age. He gave prophecies of many events to happen before His return. He said there would be religious deception, wars and rumors of wars, famines, disease epidemics and earthquakes, all leading to a time of Great Tribulation when mankind would be on the verge of destroying all life on the earth if the time wasn't cut short (verses 21 and 22). Then Jesus prophesied there would be heavenly signs, and He would return with power and great glory (verses 29-30).
Sylvia Browne presents herself as a psychic. Remember though that this is the same woman who told oredicted that Bill Clinton was innocent of the charges in the Monica Lewinsky scandal. She also said that by the end of 2010 the common cold will be a thing of the past. Sylvia also came up short when she predicted that in 2010 Diabetes will be “significantly reduced and ultimately cured.
To sum it all up, I find it difficult to take Sylvia Browne’s end of days prophecies seriously for a number of reasons. She has proven again and again that she is what one would identify as a "false profit."
Does this mean that I believe in the Mayan calendar? No one knows the day when Christ will return (Matt. 24:43, Luke 12:39). Not the Mayan Calendar, not any preacher or pastor who claims to know but only the Father in heaven. If someone predicts the coming of Christ, you can know for a fact that you are listening to a false profit.
Even the Bible says nothing about the end of the world. It describes an end of the age and a new heaven and a new earth but Ecclesiastes 1:4 says “Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever.
