Yahweh’s Words About The End of Days

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I’ve been rereading the two books of Baruch. Baruch ben Neriah was noted as the scribe of the prophet Jeremiah. Baruch spoke directly with Yahweh on a couple of different occasions, once being discussions about what it was going to be like at “the End of Days.”

Here are some of those writings for your enjoyment:

2 Baruch 25:3 – When horror seizes the inhabitants of earth, and they fall into many tribulations and further, they fall into great torments.

2 BARUCH 27:1 And YAHWEH answered and said to me: That time will be divided into twelve parts, and each part has been preserved for that for which it was appointed.
2 BARUCH 27:2 In the first part: the beginning of commotions.
2 BARUCH 27:3 In the second part: the slaughtering of the great.
2 BARUCH 27:4 In the third part: the fall of many into death.
2 BARUCH 27:5 In the fourth part: the drawing of the sword.
2 BARUCH 27:6 In the fifth part: famine and the withholding of rain.
2 BARUCH 27:7 In the sixth part: earthquakes and terrors.
2 BARUCH 27:8 In the eighth part: a multitude of ghosts and the appearances of demons.
2 BARUCH 27:9 In the ninth part: the fall of fire.

2 BARUCH 27:10 In the tenth part: rape and much violence.
2 BARUCH 27:11 In the eleventh part: injustice and unchastity.
2 BARUCH 27:12 In the twelfth part: disorder and a mixture of all that has been before.
2 BARUCH 27:13 These parts of that time will be preserved and will be mixed, one with another, and they will minister to each other.
2 BARUCH 27:14 For some of these parts will withhold a part of themselves and take from others and will accomplish that which belongs to them and to others; hence, those who live on earth in those days will not understand that it is the end of times.

I think that 2 Baruch 28:1 requires knowledge and wisdom just to grasp its meaning: “But everyone who will understand will be wise at that time.”

2 Baruch 29:1 And YAHWEH answered and said to me: That which will happen at that time bears upon the whole earth. Therefore, all who live will notice it.

2 Baruch 29:3 And it will happen that when all that which should come to pass in these parts has been accomplished, the Anointed One will begin to be revealed.
