I actually have a good idea of when Armageddon will be. And its not Dec 2012, either. I came up with the date studying world epoch making events, using numerological laws to compare events, prophecies, and scriptural quotes. I have a damn good idea, and you know, I keep it to myself. Its kinda spooky, if you think about it.
I think my estimates are pretty good. However, I'm still not sure. There're factors in Numerology one cannot do away with. Numbers are reliable tools, but when played against unreliable factors like say I dont know, human will - it can go haywire. No kidding.
The concept of Armageddon does not exist outside of biblical prophesy. And numerology is a reliable tool, if they are not corrupted while being applied to unreliable "misinterpretations". How intresting would it be if bible prophesy also points to 2012? And if it did would Christians need to know, or want to know? I said Christians because non Christians would not think of the bible as a reliable sourse anyway. But if the bible did point to this date would Christians need to know. And what would the ramifications of this knowledge be.
This is different from what you said earlier. You said if you knew should you tell the world? In this case I'd say no, because they would think you are crazy.
Now, if people actually knew it for sure, I think that would intensify what they had been doing anyway. Some pursue the pleasures of life because they think it's a one-time event. They might go crazy. Others like religious fanatics would surely intensify their activities of converting the population too.
This is a good topic and is worth discussion by those who have a more clever view on this than I have.
the reason 2012 is noted is from the Mayan stone calender, which is like point 1 sec out from the modern time system, However as our calender has been altered a number of times, it may be sooner or later than stated year.
Hence why you will now find BCE = before christain era and ce = christain era. instead of BC and AD as the time is out by roughly seven years.
If I knew when excatly the world would end, would I tell?
I tryed to, but nobody belived me or listened to me so I came and started to write hubs on Hub pages.
That's the exact reason I dont buy the Mayan date thingy. Like now, we not really in July 31. No one knows what date it really is. I prefer taking known calendar events into account, then making calculations based on that.
If people knew, they would act the same as they do now. Nothing would change. The believers would want to change (whatever they thought needed to be changed). The un-believer would argue against it, as they do today, and would fight change. The fact is, people already have a way to act differently. Ask the question, "if you knew you only had a week to live, how would you live out that last week? What changes would you make?" The answer should be the same. Sadly, many people live with their heads buried in the sands of apathy. "It won't happen to ME!", or "that will NEVER happen!" and the like. Sorry for being cynical, but that's what my observation is.
That isn't cynical, just being honest in how you feel. I have a problem with people that fight over their beliefs but do not know why they believe the way they do. Is it realy their beliefs or someone elses band wagon that they are on. Now that is a cynical statement, and I'm sorry. I will say that My mathmatical theology did come up to the year 2012 before I had ever heard about the Myans or any onther such predictions. I don't think that people as a whole would want to know. That is why I ask the question.
armegeddon has been going on for a while. At its core, it is about the internal war of the real self seeking unity with God and creation and the not self wanting to keep the division.
as it plays out in the world, it is all the not selves in their varying states of consciousness fighting for power against each other.
There is no one ultimate time and place for armegeddon. If people will seek their unity with God/Universe of Love and desire to be of service to each other instead of vying for power over each other, then aremegeddon will be transmuted and never fully manifest.
so, everyone needs to expose the bad and seek the good, desire unity and work for a better world for the benefit of everyone
Actually, no. Armageddon is when all the armies of this earth, under the command of the antichrist, gather in the plains of Megiddo (the Arabs and the Israelites know where that is, I don't) to annihilate the Jews, once and for all, and just as they're about to do that, Jesus comes from heaven with His Saints to slaughter them, and blood rose to the bridle of their horses......
Do believers actually hate the idea that we don't believe in a God?And can still be perfectly happy, reasonable, moral, good people? Not angry or immoral as we are often made out to be.Seeing as it was asked of us...
