The End in 2012?

30 Jul

The Mayan calendar ending in 2012 is creating not only huge profits for Hollywood, but also anxiety for many people.  On Netflix alone there are 4 or 5 films about 2012 right now ranging from major Hollywood productions to documentary style works about how it could all play out if the Mayans are correct.  One of my dear friends told me recently about intense anxiety over 2012 really being the end of the world.  This anxiety is causing sleepless nights and has been going on for months.  She asked me if I believed that 2012 was the end, and I said “No.”  Here is why I know that the day the Mayan calendar ends in 2012 is NOT the end of the world.

I believe in the Word of God with all my heart, mind, and soul.  It is written, “For he (God) has set a day for judging the world with justice by the man he has appointed, and he proved to everyone who this is by raising him from the dead.” Acts 17:31 So God has set a day for mankind to be judged and this will be carried out by his Son, Jesus.  “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in Heaven or the Son himself.  Only the Father knows.”  Matthew 24:36 So the Mayans cannot have known the day the world ends because no one knows but God.

This day of judgment does not have to be a source of fear.  “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

Jesus said, “If any of you wants to be my follower, you must turn from your selfish ways, take up my cross, and follow me.  If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake and for the sake of the Good News, you will save it. And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul? If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Mark 8:34-38

    Funny you should post about this because i JUST watched 2012 yesterday! it was…. scary in the sense that that could just be what our world is coming to. i wish the people of the world–having this type of insight–would have made some serious plan or take on some serious effort to save the planet. both in case of emergency AND in the long term destruction of the planet (pollution).

    so stressing these topics. lol
