did Jesus and Stephen Hawking agree on the timing of the end times?

Updated: Dec 4, 2018

Prior to his death earlier this year, English theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking believed the universe was 14 billion years old.

He also believed that – at this very moment – mankind is experiencing its most perilous period of time EVER. In the Dec. 1, 2016 edition of The Guardian, Hawking wrote, “…we are at the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity. We now have the technology to destroy the planet on which we live, but have not yet developed the ability to escape it.”

At the time Hawking wrote this article, I wonder if he knew that Jesus Christ made a similar prediction almost 2,000 years earlier, when – in Christ's Olivet Discourse – He not only foretold a time when the earth would be destroyed –

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been seen from the beginning of the world until now; no, and never will be.” (Matthew 24:21)

– but also, the specific "generation" that would witness it –

“Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.”  (Matthew 24:34)

So, who is this future "generation" that Jesus spoke of?

It is the generation – the FINAL 70-80 year generation – that began with the miraculous rebirth of ISRAEL, on May 14th, 1948. Interestingly, exactly 70 years ago.

So, what ARE the odds that – after 14 billion years – the period of time that Stephen Hawking spoke of as being "…the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity…” is the EXACT same period in time that Jesus spoke of almost 2,000 years ago, when He referenced the period we are in now as a final "generation"?

Do you believe this is a coincidence? If so, then you certainly exhibit more faith than most; and certainly more faith than me.

One final thought...

Even as Jesus Christ and Stephen Hawking seem completely COMPATIBLE on the timing of “the most dangerous moment” in history...on the subject of how to SURVIVE this imminent catastrophe, they could not be more INCOMPATIBLE.

Whereas Hawking – an avowed atheist – went to his grave offering NO hope, or any message of salvation, when he said,"...[we] have not yet developed the ability to escape [the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity]", Jesus on the other hand offers nothing but HOPE and ETERNAL LIFE, when he promised to His faithful Believers: “Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth.” (Revelation 3:10)

My suggestion? If you want to learn about science and cosmology from one of the smartest guys on Earth, then by all means, follow atheists like Stephen Hawking. 

However, if you want a true blueprint for happiness in THIS life, then an "exit strategy" that includes Salvation and Eternal life in the NEXT life, follow Jesus. 

In my way of thinking, it doesn't take a theoretical physicist to know the wiser of the two choices.
