A number of religions and traditions have beliefs about the End Times , which produces various belief systems , traditions , and behaviors .

Jewish messianism.Collecting back the people who live in exile

After the year 6000 ( in the Jewish calendar ) , the seventh millennium is a period of purity, serenity , spiritual life , and peace throughout the world , which is called the Olam Haba ( " World of Tomorrow " ) , in which all people will know God directly . "
Christianity.According to the New Testament :
In the New Testament , Jesus refers to him as " The Great Tribulation " , " Torture " , and " the days of vengeance . "
So when you see the abomination of desolation standing in the holy place , according to what was spoken by the prophet Daniel - let the reader notice - then those in Judea must flee to the mountains . People who are on ventilation at the top of the house let him not go down to take the items from his home , and the people who were in the field let him not come back to take his clothes . Woe to women who are pregnant or are breast-feeding a baby at that time . But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day . For then shall be great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now and that will not happen again . And except that the time was not shortened , no flesh then there will not be saved: but for the sake those days shall be shortened choice .
When you see the abomination of desolation standing where it ought not - let the reader notice - then those in Judea must flee to the mountains . People who are on ventilation at the top of the house let him down and went to retrieve something from his house , and the people who were in the field let him not come back to take his clothes . Woe to women who are pregnant or are breast-feeding a baby at that time . Pray that it may not happen in winter . For in those days shall be affliction, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the creation which God created until now , and that will not happen again . And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved : but because of the people who have chosen option , he hath shortened the days .
But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies , then know that the desolation thereof is nigh . At that time those who are in Judea flee to the mountains , and the people who were in the city to evacuate , and those who are in the country must not enter again into the city , therefore the days of vengeance, which will fulfill all that is written . Woe to women who are pregnant or are breast-feeding a baby in those days! For there will come a tremendous distress over the whole country, and wrath upon this people, and they shall fall by the sword and taken as prisoners to all the nations, and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles who do not know God , to fulfill the nation's age - the nation . " And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars , and on earth nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea . Guy would be failing them for fear those things which are coming on the earth: for the power - powers of the heavens will be shaken . at that time men will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory . when these things begin to happen , look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near . " Then Jesus told them this parable : " Behold the fig tree and all the trees . 'When you see the trees sprout leaves , you just know that summer is near . Similarly , when you see these things happening, you know , that the kingdom of God is near . I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass away , till all be fulfilled . Heaven and earth will pass away , but my words shall not pass away . "
Catholic Doctrine.While some who believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible insist that the prediction of dates or times is futile, some other writers believe that Jesus foretold the signs that would indicate that the " time of the end " is near . Some of these signs include earthquakes , natural disasters , problems in society , ' wars and rumors of wars , and other disasters . However, the precise time it will happen , he will come " like a thief in the night " .

Premillennialists Christians who believe that the End Times are occurring now , are usually specific about timelines culminating in the destruction of the world . For some people , Israel , the European Union , or the United Nations is seen as key players whose role has been foretold in the Scriptures . Among the pre - millennial dispensational writers , there are those who believe that Christians will be supernaturally summoned to Heaven by Jesus in an event called the Rapture , which occurs before the "Great Tribulation" prophesied in Matthew 24-25, Mark 13 and Luke 21. The Great Tribulation is also mentioned in the last book of the Bible - Revelation.

Thus time is cyclical and the epochs keep repeating infinitely . Nevertheless , the existence of crime and deterioration that can be tolerated in each epoch is different and therefore the threshold is necessary for the manifestation of God's incarnation is different for each yuga . The current yuga is the most evil and so the threshold for the appearance of the avatar is so high that the world needs to lower the maximum rate .
