Year 2012

It is greatly anticipated that the year 2012 is the year of enormous disaster.

Here are some predictions you may be aware of:

Mayan – Interpreting their calendar, the end of the world should take place around December 2012 through the occurrence of a polar shift. In other words meaning, massive earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and so on.

Nostradamus – World War III, which could mean twenty seven years of great bloodshed though an invasion of Europe by Islamic forces. It has also been said that WWIII should begin December 2010, be global and involve nuclear weapons.

Then there is Planet X, ‘the great star for seven days will burn’ this has been interpreted as an appearance of a heavenly being, causing worldwide destruction. Another interpretation states that Planet X is the eleventh planet in the solar system, many times bigger than earth and will cause comets. Planet X has also been declared as a myth.

NASA – A solar storm is expected to occur in 2012, they say that the sunspot cycle to come will be worst than the last. However it is claimed that the solar maximum should begin between 2010 and 2011. What this basically means is the activity on the surface of the sun will destroy our technology, for example there will be power outages. It will in addition create overall economic disaster and cause the death of millions. All this will be due to the highly charged energy particles (plasma) of the sun, travelling to earth.

The book of Revelation by John the apostle, estimated to be written around A.D. 95, tells us everything we need to know about the end time.

Here are a few key points mentioned in the biblical book:

There will be a great earthquake, the sun will become black, the moon will appear in a blood like colour and the stars will fall from the sky. Revelation 6:12-13

Revelation 16
Sores will come upon both mankind and animals.
The waters will become like blood.
The Sun will scorch men with fire.
Hail will fall from the sky.

Moreover, there will be death, mourning and famine. Revelation 18:8

Matthew 24:3-44 also in summary, explains in simpler terms what is to take place. It furthermore mentions, that the actual end of the world is unknown though many will try to predict how and when.

One thing is certain, the world we live in is a ticking time bomb and is set to destroy itself at some point. We do have the assurance however, that before that time approaches and no one is left alive on this planet, Christ will come to take his people home.

The Lord requests that we be vigilant, not allow anyone to deceive us, not worry when we hear of wars and witness the destruction, and more importantly to be ready for his second appearance on this planet.
