What was Supposed to Happen on December 21, 2012, the Winter Solstice?

Updated on October 18, 2014

Biblical Prophecy in the Book of Revelation

According to the Book of Revelation, the last book in the Bible, there are specific events that will lead up to Armageddon. Many believe that we humans are experiencing many of the signs that are shown in this book. The growing wars, famine, diseases, and natural disasters are all signs of the end.

The mere rejection of God is a sign. In all of time, Atheism has never been so popular. This book tells us that in the end, we will be increasingly exposed to the differences between good and evil, and will be forced to choose a side. I realize this is a matter of perception, in general. However, those who believe in the Bible know the difference and have made a choice.

Man's Destruction of Earth; Nuclear War?

As mentioned before, the Bible predicts a “Final War”, Armageddon. But will it be on 12/21/12?

The Rapture and Second Coming of Jesus

Many Christians believe that Jesus will return to Earth to rescue His believers before the Tribulation Period of seven years begins. This is also the time when the anti-Christ will reign over the world in a “New World Order” with one currency, one government and one religion. Europe has already combined their currency; the Euro. Islam is growing so fast that statistics show it will be the leading religion in Europe and the Americas within twenty years or less.

The Hopi Indian Prophecy

"The Hopi Tribe is a sovereign nation located in northeastern Arizona. The reservation occupies part of Coconino and Navajo counties, encompasses more than 1.5 million acres, and is made up of 12 villages on three mesas.

Since time immemorial the Hopi people have lived in Hopituskwa and have maintained our sacred covenant with Maasaw, the ancient caretaker of the earth, to live as peaceful and humble farmers respectful of the land and its resources. Over the centuries we have survived as a tribe, and to this day have managed to retain our culture, language and religion despite influences from the outside world." ~

The Mayan Calendar Ending

It is common knowledge that the Mayan Calendar will end on December 21, 2012. What exactly does this mean?

Some believe this is the day that life on Earth will end. Some believe this is the day something will change, not necessarily anything negative. Some believe this is a day of celebration. Some believe this means nothing at all.

The Galactic Alignment

Once every 26,000 years the Earth eclipses with the Sun and the exact center (Dark Rift) of the Milky Way Galaxy.

Most Astronomers seem to be in agreement on this matter. If and how it will affect us, here on Earth, is the question.


The Michel Nostradamus Prophecy

Nostradamus has been given credit for many prophecies. He has predicted what is believed to be two of three anti-Christs', the first being Napoleon, and the second being Hitler. Hitler was nearly named in one of his quatrains. The third is still being determined by Nostradamus scholars. This is a small sample of what he has prophesied that has been determined to be true.

See the video to the right for more Nostradamus prophecies.

The Earth’s Poles, Magnetic Fields and Epic Natural Disasters

Although the reversal of the magnetic poles on Earth may be portrayed as a danger, NASA doesn't agree. However, there are other scientists who believe the poles are already beginning to shift. They claim this shift is beginning to cause unnatural occurrences such as birds that are mysteriously dying.


A Peak of Solar Storms and Excessive Radiation Exposure

We are not strangers to solar flares and the havoc they can cause. Disruptions in our communications systems inconvenience us on occasion. However, the Sun has activity seasons and scientists are expecting continuing solar flares growing into storms that will peak this year, 2012. Could it be that we are merely inconvenienced? Or will we be without communication (at a minimum) for several weeks, months, or even years?

What will happen at the winter solstice of 2012?

Which of the following do you believe is most likely to happen on or near 12/21/12?

A Collision with a Rogue Space Object

There is such an abundance of space particles, space junk, meteors, comets, and such, all moving at indescribable speeds. Scientists cannot possibly keep up with everything that is a potential threat to the Earth. We may or may not see an object headed on a collision course with our planet. We may or may not have time or the ability to do anything about it.

      I don't think it will be the end, because the Bible says that no one can predict when the day or the time. This is an interesting hub.

      Very informative hub. Because the sun is active now, I believe there will be a major EMP event that will result in our society being driven back to the type of existence people lived in the 15th century.

      Interesting hub, for as long as this planet existed, there has been war, famine, diseases, and natural disasters, not much has changed, so my attitude is what will be will be.

      Thank you for your reading my hub, and your comments. I'm in agreement.

      In your poll I agreed with some of it but not all of it. Since you have read my Hubs you know that I believe the Pole is already shifting. I'm not a bible thumper per se, have read it and try to practice the teachings Jesus gave us and although I don't practice any particular religion I still have made a choice.

      I suspect that much of the 21122012 is hype for the masses and that there isn't a specific date for the change to occur as it is obvious that it is already happening in various ways.

      This was a well researched article, in an effort to respond in a positive manner to all that do likewise I have begun to try to read as many hubs as possible by other folks with similar views.

      I'm beginning to believe 'science' was created to specifically back up concepts that can't be proven to influence the masses!

      I think "the end is near". I feel they were all close in their predictions, meaning the time is near, but, there is something no one thinks about. Leap year. It was instituted by Cesar in when we changed from the Gregorian calander. Something is gonna happen but, don't relax on the 13th.
