Are you one of the people that are asking “Is the World Going to End on December 21, 2012?” ? Well, I am going to give you the answer. It is “NO”, but it is not as simple as that. The world could end at any second of any day if you look at it from a Christian perspective. So if you are not a Christian, don’t plan on being a Christian or think that all Christians are fools, and then you will not believe any of the other information that I will be providing.
Ok, for those of you still reading, we need to back up a little bit here. Most people familiar with the Bible have heard that there will be a Judgement Day. They have heard that Jesus will be coming back again.
People have been trying to predict when this day is going to be for centuries. Guess what, they have been wrong so far. See the thing is the there is scripture where Jesus basically is saying, “Listen people, yes I am coming back but even I don’t know when that is” Here are a few references to that.
Mark 13:32 "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."
Acts 1:7 He said to them: "It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority."
So what am I trying to say? Well, if you study the Bible, you will find that there are going to be False Prophets. These are people that will appear to be able to tell you the future and you will want to believe everything they say. But here is the simple test that every Christian should know and do. They should check what they are being told or taught and see if the Bible agrees or disagrees with the teaching. The Bible is suppose to be the Word of God. If it doesn’t match up with the word of God, then you should not believe it no matter how convincing it is.
You should also seek the advice of a more mature believer. Now more mature does not mean old, but one that is farther along on their spiritual walk with God. How do you know who these people are? Well, don’t always believe their words but watch their actions.
Let’s not forget that you can pray to God to help guide you. Are you worried that the world is going to end? Tell God. Ask him to help you. Ask Him to send people into your life. Ask Him to reveal scripture to you. Remember this, you can read scripture but many times it does not mean you understand it.
The big thing is that you should realize this fact. It doesn’t matter if the world ends on December 21, 2012. The world could end for you tomorrow. You could have a deadly accident and that is it, your done. Are you ready?
Were you planning on getting “Right with God” somewhere around the first of December? Kind of one of those “ just in case” things.
Basically you have two choices. Either you have beliefs about how you are going to be spend eternity or you don’t. Obviously I choose to believe in the promises of Jesus and the Bible. I have all my chips “on red” and this makes me comfortable that either I am right or I am totally wrong. If I am totally wrong, then I am basically screwed. There is no way to game the system here.
If I am right, then I have to believe what Jesus said, that no ones know when the world is going to end except God.
The false prophets are going to be playing on your fear. On the fear that you don’t have thing to base your beliefs on. You are lost and they will use that against you.
So what should you do? If you consider yourself a Christian, then check for yourself on the question if the world is going to end. If you are not a Christian, then I am not sure what to tell you. I am assuming a lot of other religions are not supporting the idea the aliens or polar shifts ending the world.
My suggestion is to read the Book of Genesis and Exodus in the old testament, read the New Testament. Remember, if you don’t know what the Bible says, then you don’t know if you are being mislead.
There are end of the world sites out there. Check them out. I want to point out on thing though. I was on one and it has Google Adsense ads on it. Google Adsense pays out two months behind, so I am thinking if the ads are still running come late October, then even the website owner doesn’t really think the world is going to end.
