Bible Prediction of the Collapse of our Expanding Universe
by Marshall Beeber
Runnaway Universe May Collapse

The  recent discovery that the universe is expanding at an ever-increasing  rate has led many astronomers to forecast a dark and lonely future for  our galaxy. According to some predictions, the rapidly accelerating  universe will cause all galaxies to run away from each other until they  are no longer visible.  
In  this widely accepted scenario, our own Milky Way will become an  isolated island adrift in a sea of totally black space 150 billion years  from now. But two new studies by Stanford University cosmologists  suggest that it may be time to rethink this popular view of a “runaway  universe.” Instead of expanding exponentially, our cosmos may be in  danger of collapsing.  “The  standard vision at the moment is that the universe is speeding up,” said  physics Professor Andrei Linde, “so we were surprised to find that a  collapse could happen within such a short amount of time."   Read the article at
SciTech  Blog states: We’ve all heard of the Big Bang, a widely accepted theory  that proposes the entire universe began from a single point about 13.7  billion years ago and has been expanding ever since. But will it expand  forever? Or could it stop and reverse that process? One possible fate of  the universe is the Big Crunch, the idea that the cosmos could one day  begin contracting and eventually collapse back on itself or return to a  single point. If  it ever happens, this anti-Big Bang would take place so far in the  future that Earth might even not exist anymore, according to  experts writing for Cornell University’s Curious About Astronomy

Biblical prophecy of a "Collapsing Universe"

Isaiah 34:4 - And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll:  and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the  vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. (the figurative phrase  "rolled together as a scroll" is a excellent image for the collapse of  the Universe. Think of a scroll stretched out and then snapping back to  it's rolled-up form once let go.)

Isaiah 65:17 - For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.

2 Peter 3:13 - Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
