Being the third largest national economy in the world (right after the United States and China), Japan has indeed spare thousands even millions of money and casualties from this natural disaster's occurence. A horrible 8.9 magnitude earthquake strikes the home of technologies and vendo machines. And in just minutes, establishments and buildings, ricefields, and lives, all been strively and hard-earned, deminished. State of emergency had been declared for five nuclear reactors at two power plants (including Fukushima Daiichi plant) just so releasing radioactive vapor. The cooling system malfunctioned as the electricity had cut off caused by about 4 meters high tsunami waves yesterday. This has been a wake up call for a nuclear safety. What will be Japan, its neighbor countries and the rest of the world will be if a massive nuclear disaster came?

All of these protests, commotions, and happenings takes a toll on a lot of people worldwide including yours truly. Now I'm just thinking,
"Is it time yet?"
I'm on my verge of finding when will be the final or the so-called end of the world. Then I stumble upon this

I'll gather up all my loved ones so I'll die happy. So long the rest of the world, we can do whatever it takes to survive!
"And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:"
-2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 King James Version
"At samatalang siya'y nakaupo sa bundok ng mga Olivo, ay nagsilapit sa kaniya ng bukod ang mga alagad, na nagsisi-pagsabi, Sabihin mo sa amin, kailan mangyayari ang mga bagay na ito? at ano ang magiging tanda ng iyong pagparito, at ng katapusan ng sanglibutan? And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what [shall be] the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world
"Gayon din naman kayo, pagka nangakita ninyo ang lahat ng mga bagay na ito, ay talastasin ninyo na siya'y malapit na, nasa mga pintuan nga." So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors.
"At mangakakarinig kayo ng mga digmaan at mga alingawngaw ng mga digmaan; ingatan ninyo na huwag kayong magulumihanan: sapagka't kinakailangang ito'y mangyari datapuwa't hindi pa ang wakas. And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all [these things] must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Mateo 24:3 at 33
"Sapagka't magsisitindig ang bansa laban sa bansa, at ang kaharian laban sa kaharian; at magkakagutom at lilindol sa iba't ibang dako. Datapuwa't ang lahat ng mga bagay na ito ay siyang pasimula ng kahirapan." (Mat. 24:6-8) For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these [are] the beginning of sorrows.
