Does The World End As Predicted On 12/21/2012?

In 2009, a movie 2012 was produced showing how the world would end.  It was based on a prediction given 5,125 years ago by a Hopi prophecy and the end of the Mayan calendar since 3113 BC.  Supposedly, a solar flare will cause a polar shift on the magnetic poles.  There will be tsunamis around the world, massive earthquakes, all rivers will over flow, volcanoes will erupt and plunging asteroids will turn our cities into smoking ruins.  There will be an ultimate catastrophe and no place will be safe for humans and massive food shortages will occur if any should survive.  I recently watched CNBC showing the fear people world-wide were having and the millions of dollars being spent on mountain-top bunkers.  They were filled with food and water for long periods of time.  They also had weapons and enormous amounts of ammunition.

Remember Y2K when people were being told that all new technology equipment and software would be needed to replace what we had?  Therefore, on January 1, 2000 nothing technical would continue to work.  People were hoarding food and water expecting a disaster.  Nothing happened; January came and went without any problems.  However, there were thousands of people who became millionaires promoting the need to replace your equipment and supplying an adequate amount of food for storage.

Are you aware of the millions of dollars some have made from the man-made global warming or climate change belief?  Don’t allow false teachers or scam artists cause you to panic over the world ending.

If you are a Christian and believe in the authenticity of the Bible there is absolutely nothing to fear.

II Thessalonians 2:3 – 4 – Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction.  He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God.” There is no anti-Christ on the scene and there is no Jewish temple in Jerusalem.   (Do you believe the Judeo/Christian Bible?)  What do you have to fear?

II Thessalonians 2:7 – 8 – “For the secret power of lawlessness is already at work; but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.  And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will overthrow with the breath of his mouth and destroy by the splendor of his coming.”

I believe “the one” is the Holy Spirit.  It says: “but the one who now holds it back will continue to do so till he is taken out of the way.”  “Till he is taken out of the way.”  I believe “He” is the Holy Spirit who is withdrawn from earth at the time of the rapture.  Many believe Christians will be raptured or taken up to meet Christ in the air and the Holy Spirit will be withdrawn prior to the Antichrist being revealed. However, many disagree and some believe it is the government that is holding back Satan.

II Thessalonians 2:9 – 12 – “The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with how Satan works. He will use all sorts of displays of power through signs and wonders that serve the lie, and all the ways that wickedness deceives those who are perishing. They perish because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.  For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.”

 

How can this man become so powerful and attain such notoriety and loyalty from the masses?  He is a tool of Satan and will be given all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders in order to deceive all who will not accept what God, through Scripture, has said.

It will be his power and his miracles that will deceive and cause unbelievers to perish who refused to love the truth or gospel message and be saved.  Those who chose to follow the Antichrist, the Bible says God will send a powerful delusion so that they will believe his lies and thus be condemned for not accepting Christ as their Savior.  God uses Satan as part of His judgment for those rebelling.

We learned in Exodus 4:21 Pharaoh’s rejection of God, through Moses, caused his heart to be hardened.  Proverbs 29:1 explains that rejecting God’s gift makes our neck stiff and our heart hard.  As God hardened the heart of the Pharaoh He will also do the same to all who rebel against Him.  Their hearts will no longer respond to the truth.  After Pharaoh allowed the Jews to leave, he later sent his army to bring them back.  Regardless of the plagues and miracles he could not accept the truth.”  The world seems to be filled with those who will not accept the truth.  As more and more have hearts that become as hard as shoe leather, the world becomes more evil.  God will only accept so much and then the end will come.

Matthew 24:4 – 8 – “Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many.  And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.  Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world.  But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”

I hope you understand, it is not probable under any Scriptural reference that the world could end on December 21, 2012.  Don’t go out making huge purchases on your credit cards expecting you would not have to pay later as some did prior to Jan. 1, 2000.  That would be an indication of unbelief and that wouldn’t please God or the credit card companies!  We don’t need more Christians going into bankruptcy.
