Is 2012 The End of the World?

3

I want all who visit this site and read my articles to know, that the year 2012 is not the end of the world.

Let me explain to you why?

First of all, many of the so-called doomsdayers base this on an ancient Mayan Calendar; some claim it is based on “Bible” prophecy. Those who claim that the ancient Mayan Calendar points to the year 2012 never mention why they use the modern Gregorian calendar to come up with a December 21, 2012 date.

Those who claim that the year 2012 is Bible prophecy, have no knowledge of Bible prophecy. Jesus said at Mark 13:32 that no one knows of such a date other than God himself.

I see three things that have led to this paranoia

  • Hollywood and the movie industry defining for us all what the universe is like and what will happen to it.
  • The failure of the Church-systems to understand Scripture and explain it.
  • The descendants of Japheth (Those of European descent). I do not mean this as a racist statement because that is not its intent. Yet, it has been the European and those of European descent who have been taking the lead in spreading this paranoia. Some are even profiting from it. 

The same paranoia occurred back in the year 2000. They are wrong and I think it irresponsible.

What I find odd in all cases when the dates of these predictions come and go without event, is that the people promoting them will either fade away and disappear, or they will have some convincing reason why it did not happen. Yet, they are so sure right now that the end of the world will come in the year 2012.

The strange thing about people who live in the Western hemisphere is that they gage the end-times based on what is happening to the country in which they live. For example, if a major earthquake or some other catastrophe occurs in the United States, that in itself usually qualifies – in their minds – that the end is near. Yet, an earthquake in Iran in 1990 that killed over 50,000 hardly qualified.

What is being cultivated in people is paranoia. White people buying guns and stockpiling food and other supplies. It is all foolish. There is absolutely no call for common sense.

What can we do?

Understand what Scripture teaches about this. And, what is that?

That the end of the world (not the earth) and when it will happen is not within the jurisdiction of any human or human agency to know or to determine.

It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority. (Acts 1:7)

My advice is that it is OK to listen to all of the hysteria, but not give any credence to it. These are people who are primarily packaging and marketing doomsday scenarios. They cash in on fear and paranoia.

One must think if the world is to come to an end, why does one think that they can survive what God says will be destroyed?

The end of the world in Scripture is not the end of the earth. The end of the world in Scripture is an event that will bring to an end human rule over humans. In other words, an end to human government. 

In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever. (Daniel 2:44)

Many many events must occur on the earth before that occurs. This 2012 thing is not one of them.

In fact, the end of the world (not the earth), does not occur for more than 1000 years into the future.

In fact, the world will see a time span of peace among the nations and prosperity. (I will write more on this in later articles)

Please, do not buy into these paranoid-people who do not know what they are talking about when it concerns “the end of the world.”

Stay tuned here on this site for real common sense information concerning where we are in the stream of time and God’s great scheme of things.

Do not put your trust in a human or human agency. Do not put your trust in what any human or human agency claims for itself what God’s says. Put your trust in what God’s says, period. resist the group and the mob mentality.

Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. (Psalms 146:3)

  1. Your reference to “white people” in spreading this paranoia is quite another unnecessary indication of our races “victim mentality” even though you put a minor disclaimer to it.

    If us black folk would always keep in mind that as the Word says ” we wrestle not against flesh and blood” then we would be apt to be more spiritually minded and less a “victim” of the death related to a carnal mind.

      That my reference to White people is “unnecessary” is your opinion. I on the other hand believe that mention of it is necessary because history shows it to be a fact. Your response is appreciated but I do not agree with it because it is an example of “upholding” every thing “White people” have historically pushed upon us by way of “Christianity. An intelligent and thinking Black man challenges their viewpoint and this is a typical response. It would be refreshing for a change if some of us would consider that “here is a Black person who has Scriptural viewpoints – though not traditional – that are just as valid as those of the White European who created much of the “popular” teaching that exist today. Instead, the ones challenging those views are the ones who catch heat. Preference is to maintaining what “The White Man” says. I am not a racist and never have been. Many of by best friends are White. Whites are married into my family. I simply think they are wrong concerning Christs teachings and have presented a “counterfiet” teaching into the world and have created many “maintainers” of their views among non-Whites.

      You mentioned “The Word.” Who told you that “The Bible” is the Word of God? Whites did and you blindly accepted it. Why? Scripture teaches that no book – not even the one man gave the name Bible to – is the Word of God. Scripture teaches that there is only ONE Word of God and he is Jesus Christ. (Revelation 19:12-13) This is a position and title that is not to be shared by a book. Luke 9:35 tells us we are to “listen to him.”

      We (Blacks) and all others will continue to be victims and captives to systems of religion until we free ourselves from those systems as Christ directed us to. Jesus made the call for us to be his disciples, not membership to religious systems. He also said that if we cling to his teachings (not those passed on by Whites or any human agency), that we will really be his disciples and then – only then – will we know the truth and knowing the truth will set us free. Free from what, systems of religion that enslave us. I choose not to be enslaved by the worlds thinking on Christs teachings which Europeans started the spread of; and violently.

      So, if I challenge those traditional views it is because I listen to Christ and not what Europeans say I should believe about him. I am a disciple of Christ.

      Your reference to “Wrestling not against flesh and blood” is a good one. I know that. I never said the White man is the enemy. It is the “system” that he has stood up and calls “Christianity” that is the enemy and misleader of millions. I challenge this system. It does in no way reflect Christ or what he taught. This system is so powerful and captivating, that it has been able to convince millions that is of God. And in do such, her millions look at persons like me as if I am a demon. Why? Because I question and challenge that system and expose it as hypocritical. This system does not like when other say such things about it.

      It is interesting that Jesus got a similar response when he questioned, challenged and exposed the religious “system” of the Pharisees; who also held captive all of the Jews. Jesus comes along speaking the truth, called twelve disciples out of that “system,” and they then learned the truth and that truth FREED them from the system that held them captive.

      That this thread is about the year 2012, no comment from you about that? Why? It sounds alarmingly like a person who holds a particular viewpoint about something and has had it challenged and the persons is “responding” and not “replying.” Most “responses” are fueled by emotion.

      That is is “my” blog, I have the freedom to express what I feel has gone terribly wrong in the world concerning ALL systems of religion. While your comment is appreciated (I mean that else I would not have allowed it to be posted), it does not alter the course I must go in.

      I have a lot of incredible “never heard before” information concerning Scripture and Christs teachings that will agitate many. The agitation will come because what will be read will be the truth. Only the truth agitates and incites those clinging to error to hate, besmear, and seek to kill (silence) the one speaking it.

      If this site does not get shut down, I believe it will eventually make a lot of so-called religious “authorities” and religious organizations along with their leaders and membership very uncomfortable. They will know deep inside. They will run from the information. That is, it will become to painful to hear and digest. Instead, many will turn to “emotionalism” an lash out at the person delivering the information rather than the information. I will become the subject, not what I write.

      Whether you realize it or not, this is exact what you have done in your response. Rather than addressing the topic and the information therein, you spoke of me.

      Now think, who taught you that? A system that has conditioned you to defend it from all opposition.

      This is not a victims mentality. This line is always used by those who fear facing up to the truth and a desire for individuals of all races of men not to think for themselves.

      Respectfully, your reply is proof of that. When such truthful things are raised, it becomes a painful thing to hear to those wishing to conceal it.

      Sadly and historically, it has been the White race who has spread much disinformation about Scripture. A recent example was that the world would end on May 21, 2011 and that the “Rapture” would occur. Since it did not occur, this same group modified the date. Another is that the year 2012 will bring the end of the world.

      Teachings such as hellfire, rapture, trinity – to name a few – were not created by “people of color.” Yet, people of color are suppose to believe them.

      None of those teachings are Scriptural and more specifically Jesus did not teach them.

      I simply believe that Luke 9:35 should be adhered to (as well as 1 John 4:1). I am thoroughly convinced that what men call “Christianity” is not of God. I believe it to be the greatest opposer to Christs teachings.

      I am amazed that Whites, in general, who cling and claim to be “Christian” do not like it when a “person of color” challenges them on traditional Scriptural teachings and tells them that they have it all wrong. Scripture warns of such “traditionalism.” It is this uncanny “do not think for yourselves”mentality that pervades that is disturbing.

      There is nothing racist about such a statement. I did not create the systems of religion that envelops us all with images of Jesus, Adam and Eve, Moses, angels, and other characters in Scripture being portrayed as White people. My children see these “false” images and, in time, may accept them as truthful. Those who are White do not have that to worry about. Yet, if these persons were portrayed as Black, for example, I doubt very much if White families would accept them. Yet, everyone else is expected to accept their portrayal of it.

      This is true. But as stated above, the truth is not what a lot of people do not want to hear.

      What is paramount is what Jesus actually taught; not what Whites have traditionally interpreted (misinterpreted) and spread as a cancer into the world.

      A part of that “wrestling” is recognition of what has been occurring over time. Massive systems of what is called “Christianity” stands up upon the surface of the ground. It is a dominate religion that dominates other men and seeks to conquer other men of the nations. Did God stand it up for this purpose? Or did someone else who is able to appear as an “angel of light?”

      Scripture teaches that the “entire” world is under Satan’s power and that he is misleading the “entire” world. (1 John 5:19 and Revelation 12:9).

      Satan has stood up what men call “Christianity” for this purpose. Christianity and the “teachings of Christ” are two entirely different things. They are opposite. Christianity opposes Christs teachings and does not live by them. It does not even live by his example. Entire nations claiming to be Christian make deadly war on nations. One claimant nation dropping atomic bombs on another nation. “Christianity” has been able to mislead and massage the consciences of it’s membership that such things are OK or that such actions are justified and have God’s backing. This equates to not listening to Christ – Love Your Enemies. Thus, Christianity shows an antichristian posture.

      These things are true. Yet, it is Whites and those they have been able to seduce with their thinking who become agitated when a thinking person raises these issues and say what they have been teaching is not of God and do not reflect the teachings of the Christ.

      I am pleased that e-Prophetic represents an effort speak the truth as Jesus spoke it unaffected by the immensity and “bulk” of religious organization and their loyal adherents who do not wish to hear the truth.

      I am a Black man who loves God and His Christ and cling strictly to what Christ taught, not what established religious organization – especially Christianity – would like for me to be taught by them.

      My skin color has nothing to do with what I know. I mention it because there are people of color who are discerning and have insight not fashioned by the pressure of authoritative religious organizations who think they know.

      Christ is not within any religious organization. He is “outside” of them. Please read what the Apostle Paul said in that regard in the article http://www.e-prophetic.com/articles/get-outside-the-camp/
