President Trump has banned the end of the world until well beyond his term in office.

So, phew, big relief, the sweat's off.

Does your post mean that you still assert the 'END OF THE WORLD IS NIGH'?

I fail to see the correlation, but I'm sure you'll enlighten me.

People have been saying that for thousands of years, and they've all been wrong. Even Jesus said the end would happen before the apostles died, but they are all dead and gone and the world hasn't ended.

Matthew 16: 27-28 β€œFor the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and will then repay every man according to his deeds. Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.β€œ

Which is interpreted by most scholars as "standing in this very spot in the future". The Son of Man has not "come back with his angels" nor has he judged the world. It also leaves out the manifestation of the Beast system in Revelation that matches Islam tit for tat.

"Which is interpreted by most scholars as "standing in this very spot in the future."

By "interpreted" you mean twisted. They tasted death. It said they will not taste death until he comes back to judge the world. Unless you think they are going to stand in that very spot in the future, and then die a second time, which is just doing mental gymnastics, then there is no way around it.

"The Son of Man has not "come back with his angels" nor has he judged the world."

Exactly, he had to come back to judge the world before they died, but he didn't, so it was a false prophesy.

"It also leaves out the manifestation of the Beast system in Revelation that matches Islam tit for tat."

I don't see how that changes the fact that it's a failed prophesy.

Read chapter 17, immediately following Jesus' promise that some there with Him would see Him in His kingdom...he was referring to the very next thing recorded which He did, when He took John, James, and Peter up into the mountain and showed them His glory, when He was transfigured in front of their eyes and His face shined like the sun.

Don't let these mental midget atheist get away with their stupid copy and pasted brainwashed rhetoric which always uses half truths and twists them around with all kinds of mental gymnastics...all they are doing is trying to justify their own lusts, and they are trying to pull others down to Hell with them.

Your lad Hay-Zoose has been dead as the sodding door nail for 2000 years now and he ain't coming back, mate. And if I had me a bloody shilling for every time one of you godists said the end was nigh, I'd have me enough money to buy me own pub!

If you want to educate yourself and stop looking like a fool, you might want to read farther along in that passage which continues in chapter 17, about Jesus taking some of those standing there with Him up into the mountain. He took with Him Peter, James, and John...

17 And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart,

2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

Jesus showed Himself in His glory as the KING of Kings, in His Kingdom, and they saw Him exactly as He said they would.

If you look at the things happening in the world, falling right in line with Bible prophecies for the end of days, and you can't see it is all happening exactly as the Bible foretold, you are either blind or willfully ignorant.

You are obviously ignorant of the Bible, you have displayed that clearly. You should get some education before you pretend to know what you are talking about.

It's the best way for any bloke to be, mate. That is...To be ignorant of the Bible. Given that the Bible is a right ignorant book, eh mate?

Only wankers take that shite serious like. Us reasonable chaps know that it's all mythological bollocks. Not to be meant as literal. That's like coming out of the picture show after seeing Superman and wondering where Gotham city is and how you can go on holiday there and nick a peek at Superman.

Grow up, mate. Put on some long pants. LOL. Don't be so bleeding daft.

Define world. World can mean a few things. Without a proper definition it's difficult to form an arguement.

World...the place inside Buddym's brain which is beyond understanding. I hope that clears things up for you. I know public education is failing today, but when I was in school I learned the definition of the word "world" around the age of six.

Statistically speaking, we are nowhere near the end of the world. Life on earth is billions of years old, and to think that just a few thousands years people live on this planet will cause the end of the world, thats a risky bet.

I don't believe that the world is ending. Now maybe if we decrease our perspective and add "the end of the world, as you know it" that may be more accurate. The world is changing, mind sets are changing, everything changes so the world as you knew it from 20 or so years ago (before the internet) is different from the world today.

No, the world that we all call "Earth" is not going to end. It has been proven over and over again for over thousands of years that the world is not going to end. More recent example that I can think of is that the world was going to end in 2012. Well, it's 2017 and the world never ended. Sure, maybe the world ain't the best place right now however I don't see any signs of the world ending anytime soon.
