2012: The Beginning of a End?

Updated on December 17, 2009

 Everyone loves prophecy. Everyone loves being able to see into the future. The current fad is 2012, sparked by the upcoming 2012 movie, which spells it "disaster" based on what appear to be solid evidence, the Mayan calendar, Bible prophecy, and others, all of which have had their "hits" and "misses" with accuracy.

However, lets think about this. Back in the late 70s and early 80s, there was the fad books saying the same thing by Hal Lindsay, "the Late Great Planet Earth". He made millions from these serial books claiming than Christ was coming soon.

Guess it was not soon enough, for the 80's turned into 90's and then  a new century! Nothing predicted happened. Is the 2012 thing any different?

Two things are propelling 2012 to the public: a book entitled 2012 and a movie, 2012. Basically, their take is that on Dec. 21, 2012, the world will end in a sense and transform somehow. Millions will die and civilizations will cease. The governments of the world try to preserve the species of mankind by building huge seafaring ships much like a modern Noah's Ark. All of this because it is time. Time based upon the Mayan calendar that began over 5000 years ago and ending on Dec. 21, 2012, when a new cycle begins, which changes everything.

God, you just got to love it! The movie will be a blockbuster, no doubt. The groundwork for its success is solid. The director brought you many of same movies in this genre. 2012 is about money to be made. Not the end.

However...............

What that fad is missing is that two pieces do fit enough to make one think again-they are plausible enough.

Piece 1 is that in the Bible's Book of Revelation, the end cannot happen BEFORE the first generation passes since Israel was created. That did not occur until 1948. A generation is around 70 years. So, 70+ 1948 = 2018.

Piece 2 is also from the Book of Revelations, specially, Daniel's vision into the future. Here he sees the beginning of the end and the end, which is a period lasting six years. The first three are when Earth is hit with a series of natural and odd calamities. The last three is when the Antichrist gains power and forces everyone to either follow him (or their governments) or those who still believe in God and Jesus. If you don't, you will not receive a "mark of the beast", which may be a "computer chip" under your skin. This will allow you to buy and sell anything, without it, you will not be able to get gas, buy food, sell stuff.

Since Piece 2 is six years. If 2012 is a start of a new 5000 yr cycle, then, 2018 is the end and when Jesus returns, not 2012. The Earth must move through the six year tribulation as noted in the Bible. Even if there was no "hoopla" about 2012, it would still be important because of the generation (70yrs) that is passing since Israel became a country-1948,

2012 may be the start of six year Tribulation period the Bible speaks of. Something to think about.
