Yahweh’s Words About The End of Days

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.
