Is 2012 End Of The World?

Some Historians say that Maya’s “Long Count” calendar dated the end of 5,126-year era on December 21, 2012. Is 2012 the ends of time?

The Gospel according to Matthew records Christ Jesus’ answer to this question:

“But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field; one will be taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one left. Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known in what part of the night the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and would not have let his house be broken into. Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.(Matthew 24:36-44 ESV)

No one knows, nor Mayans, nor Evangelical pastors or theologians, not even the angels of heaven, nor Christ Jesus himself, but the Father only. We, Christians, have to learn from countless errors made throughout our history in predicting the time that Christ Jesus’ said to be known only by the Father.

It is important to be aware and also be ever looking forward to the time when everything will be restored. The day we will see God face to face. The everlasting days of joying and delighting in God singing ” Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”(Revelation 4:11 ESV) Yes, we are to look forward to that day, but for now we ought to “preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles”.

Today might be the end of the world, or tomorrow, or December 21 or 10 years from now, no one knows but the Father.

Is 2012 the end of the world! I simply care-less. For I decided to know nothing among you[End-time predictors] except Jesus Christ and him crucified( 1 Corinthians 2:2). My desire is to fight the good fight, and to finish the race, and to kept the faith by the power of Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus my Lord and my God. I chose to be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour I do not expect.

  1. The Bible does say that the hour/day are unknown, and maybe by that God mean to convey just what your wrote, that is that no one has a clue really..

    Of course the Bible does not say that the year isn’t known. Ever since I was a child preachers have said “the time is near, the time is near”. The Bible is clear about what will be happening during the end times. “Men will be lovers of themselves, proud/lukewarm Christians etc.. Wars, rumors of wars”. All of these things are happening at an accelerated and alarming rate. Im not suggesting the Mayan calendar is right, I am suggesting that we maybe closer than most people are willing to consider.

  2. basically i agree with you on this one, altho on totally different grounds. one of my more logical and reasonable thoughts is that it takes quite some time to hack a complete mayan calendar into a stone, maybe the spanish invaders arrived too soon to start the carving of the new calendar, lol. but yes, when it ends no one knows. lets hope it will take a long time till it does.
