Panic arises when some people think of the year 2012. The reason for the panic?
Well, back in the time when the Mayans existed as a nation they had a problem, their calendar ended on December 21st, 2012! And, because of this sudden ending of their calendar they believed that that date marks the end of the world! But, does it?
First of all, the end of the world predicted by the Mayans has no scientific value. It doesn’t prove anything, it doesn’t hold any fact and there is no plausible reason that the world would end on December 21st.
Secondly, do you know why the Mayans don’t exist today? Because the Spaniards killed them. The Mayans could predict the end of the world but they couldn’t predict their own destruction?!
Thirdly, even if Jesus Christ returned right this second the end of the world couldn’t even make it within the next seven years! Why? The Bible predicts a seven year Tribulation that will give the world one last chance to turn from their sin. After the Tribulation all people are brought to justice and the world will be refreshed into a new world!
So, will the world end on December 21st? Absolutely, without a doubt, not!
But, the question does bring up a interesting note, what if Jesus were to return today and rapture His Church from the earth? Would you be ready? The Bible tells us we don’t know the day or the hour, we just always have to be prepared!
If you haven’t repented from your sin and turned to Jesus Christ as you only Savior please do today. When the rapture does happen you have to be prepared!
