Is the world going to end on December 21, 2012?

Updated on August 7, 2012

Don't go building that bomb shelter just yet.

There are a lot of scary things going on in the world right now. There are fires burning all over the country and it feels like the world is on fire. The midwest is in a drought that they are comparing to the Dust Bowl of the Dirty Thirties, where I live it's been over 100 degrees nearly every day for weeks. Solar storms are at a peak, and the ice sheet over Greenland melted recently for goodness sakes! What in the world is going on here?

So we go online and search for an answer. What we get as results are "zombie apocolypse!", "Nostradamus was right!" and my favorite is, "Mayan's predict the world will end in 2012!" Then we turn on the TV and History Channel is talking about the 2012 predictions and Ancient Aliens and other scary stuff, the news is talking about the weather (which is terrible), NASA is giving out solar storm reports and Ron Paul fans are screaming "Revolution!" and it feels like the world is crumbling around us. We can't help but be scared.

My daughters (13 and 11) are asking me if it's the end times that they learned about in church and I feel so sad for where we are today in America and the world. So I'm going to share with you, what I shared with my daughters.

No, the world will not end on December 21, 2012...

I know that for a fact. A fact I got from God. I know there will be people who scoff, but I get a lot of valuable information from God and He's provided me many tangible things also, but I won't get into that today. I'm a science minded person, I'm logical and naturally pessimistic, so I'm not your average Bible Thumper but experience has taught me there is someone out there designing this life for us and that someone responds to prayer.

So one night I was laying in bed late at night and watching the History Channel talk about the end of the world and I got scared. I kept thinking about my kids and how I want to watch them grow up, how I want to meet my grandchildren, how grateful I am for my life and how I want it to continue. So I closed my eyes and said a prayer asking God for comfort and to ease my fears and I heard the little voice in my head say, "Turn the channel." So I kind of thought, "Duh" - That's God telling me how to ease my fears, quit listening to this crap. So I changed the channel - click - commercial - click - commercial - click - commercial -click - then the next channel was some guy and he said, "the world is not going to end in 2012!"

Wow!!! What?

It was one of those tele-evengalist guys and he was talking about how the world will not end in 2012 and he backed it up with the book of Revelation and he talked a bit bout the evils of this world and how we need to do our best to fix them before it really IS too late, but no, the world is not going to end on December 21st 2012. Prophesy needs to be fulfilled before the end, and NO ONE will know the date. The end will come like a thief in the night. We will not know ahead of time.

My heart started racing. That was one of the most direct answers to prayer I have ever had in my life. Heck, it was almost like I Googled God and typed into God Google, "Will the world end in 2012" and the answer was "No!" Too bad all answers to prayer aren't that direct!

So I decided to write this out for all who Google that very question to perhaps comfort you like God comforted me. And we can get into the nitty gritty of global warming, zombie apocalypse, Ron Paul, the Mayan Calendar and revolution on another day in another hub.

      Great Hub! And I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that the date wasn't necessarily even predicted to be the end of the world, but December 21, 2012 was the day that the Mayan calendar simply ended because they ran out of room to put more dates on there. Also, I'm pretty sure their calculations in time were a bit off, so that date would be off anyway.. Predictions about the end of the world and other types of disasters is not a new thing..

      Short and sweet article. I agree, when it happens we will not know anything about it, but we have been on this planet for millions of years so it is highly unlikely that it will happen anytime soon. Mother nature is a powerful thing though. If big G wants it to happen it will be a done deal. No not Google, though they do call the shots don't they?

      Thanks for yet another thought provoking hub, well done!

      My husband and I will be wherever we happen to be as we have put our lives and faith in God to do what He wishes! Gota love our Heavenly Father, He loves us unconditionally!

      Great Hub! I wasn't worried initially, but I am glad that your article can help calm my fears even more. People start the apocalyptic hype frequently to try and add another element of control over the masses.

      tamron - I think most of science tends to lend itself to an intelligent creator and if you look at it from that perspective it actually is more logical than thinking that order came from chaos and nothingness.

      I agree that all the signs haven't been completed as I understand them, but I can't prentend to understand God, that's why I was so pleased to be reassured by Him.

      pstraubie48 - Yep, thats the kind of amazing thing that makes God so undeniable to me. People may call t coincidence, but I have experiences like this all the time, if not so direct. I know that when I ask God for guidence, I get it!

      Yes, usually our answers are not so forth coming. I am so glad you got an answer though. It is the answer we all wanted to hear.

      God's got our backs every day for all time.

      Never fear my dear God is in control! I am not a Bible thumper either and I have never Known the Bible to be untrue.

      Personally I prefer to believe what the Bible says over science any day.

      According to the Bible the prophecy has to be fulfilled. Even then the world will not end.

      The world will end for alot of people but the earth will still be here.

      The reason I believe that is when I'm not sure what seal its is but anyhow God instructs the angle that blows that horn not to harm the tree's.

      Why would God instruct the angle not to harm the tree's if there was no reason?

      Also it says there will be a new heaven and earth.

      Also some of us that has been saved and anointed with the holy spirit will be left behind.

      So that before Gods judgement people who hasn't excepted Jesus don't parish in live life in eternal hell.

      God does not want anyone to go to hell. So he is making that last ditch effort to save who he can.

      Great Hub Which I Enjoyed! I Recommend

      Maybe it will be the dawn of a new Era instead? Who knows, but the end, it is not. Thanks for visiting!

      I have heard of this so many times. People try to put science behind it and this and that. A rare event it is, but is it the end? I actually read a hub before and it stated that the world was to end prior 200 plus times. It may even be more. After a little research, that number was correct. I wish I had the link or even who wrote it. This a hot topic though. I hope not:) You never know?
