I don't believe it is going to be the end of the world. We may be close to the end of the world as we know it though, judging by current events.
The Bible says that no one knows the hour or the day except God Himself. "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." (Matthew 24:36).
However it (the Bible) tells us the signs to look for:
"For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy." (Timothy 3:2)
"And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold." (Matthew 24:12)
"But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased." (Daniel 12:4)
"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows." (Mark 13:8)
And perhaps the most prophetic verse of all in the Bible:
"Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When its branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near." (Mark 13:28)
The fig tree is a symbol for Israel and Israel became a nation in 1948. Along with all the other signs, everything suggests that we are close to the end of the world as we know it, and the second coming of Jesus Christ.
Even the Muslims recognize this as they await their Mahdi. But the Islamic Mahdi is probably actually the Anti-Christ!
There is a way out - and that is repentance of one's sins and acceptance of the free gift of salvation provided by Jesus Christ through his finished work on the cross where He died for the sins of all mankind, past, present and future.
So --- we do not know the day, but we know the season, and should be watching.
