The Paradise Prophecy: Back To The Future
"And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away"
The world was created as a beautiful, peaceful, sinless (the sinlessness is what made it peaceful - no murder, no theft) Paradise. Humans were happy and truly free at the beginning because they obeyed the Way of the LORD.
That was a long time ago. Since then, humanity has fouled itself and the world to such a decadent (see Decadence In History And Prophecy) level that a vast part of humanity have now defiantly made themselves blind to the LORD's Creation. For many, the world has become a self-inflicted sinister and very dangerous place.
But the Messiah is going to return to restore Paradise (see A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The Return Of The Messiah and A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The 1000 Years and A Biography Of Jesus Christ: The Kingdom Of God). The past is the future (see Will You Return To The Tree Of Life?).
The English-language term (as it is translated from the original Hebrew and Greek of the Holy Scriptures) "end of the world" has two distinct meanings in the Holy Bible. The first is simply geographic; it means the most-distant place on Earth from anyone's own place on Earth.
"19:3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. 19:4 Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun, 19:5 Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race. 19:6 His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof." (Psalm 19:3-6 KJV)
Isaiah used "end of the world" with both applied meanings - everywhere on Earth, and the end of the corrupt world that has existed since man became a sinner and turned Paradise into the planet of fools with man-made countries and religions (see Iniquity In History And Prophecy and The History Of Idolatry).
"62:10 Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people. 62:11 Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. 62:12 And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken." (Isaiah 62:10-12 KJV)
So too, as it is prophesied in the Book of Revelation. The last Book of the Bible ends where the first Book of the Bible began - in Paradise.
"21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away." (Revelation 21:1-4 KJV)

This Day In History, January 10

1538: A statement by Martin Luther regarding the Roman Catholic doctrine of Purgatory: "God has placed two ways before us in His Word: salvation by faith, damnation by unbelief. He does not mention purgatory at all. Nor is purgatory to be admitted, for it obscures the benefits and grace of Christ."

1810: Napoleon Bonaparte divorced his "eternal love" Josephine (Josephine de Beauharnais) after 14 years of marriage.
