2012 ready or not!

Welcome to 2012 the date mentioned in many prophecies. It is impossible not to realise that something is happening the probability of financial collapse, war, riots and civil unrest is extremely high. Hollywood released a disaster movie titled “2012”, which ignored the real predictions for this time. Those who have pay TV may have seen the History Channel present documentaries titled “The Lost Book of Nostradamus” and “Nostradamus 2012” as well as several shows about “Mayan Doomsday Prophecies” and similar themes. The producers of all these shows seem to have ignored the source of the most important predictions for 2012; the Bible.

Bible scholars have known for many years that there are events occurring around the world that seem to be directly related to Biblical Prophecy; the prophets Daniel, Ezekiel, Isaiah and Jeremiah all describe the “end times” and the New Testament Gospel includes prophecies made by Jesus Christ. Most of these are vague as to the actual dates and concentrate on events and the need to live according to Biblical instruction. The book of Daniel however gives specific times for events to occur, he talks of a period of “days” that certain events will take to pass.

With many translations for time periods there is often conjecture over the actual duration of periods such as “days”, “weeks” (or sevens) and other ages, often many of these are interchangeable. With hindsight we can now ascertain with a fair degree of confidence exactly what Daniel was predicting. We can identify his accuracy by examining predictions of the various empires that would exist after his time and now we can establish what he meant by the 1335 “days” that would precede Judgement Day. This period is made up of an era of 1290 years called the “days of the Gentiles” which we can now identify as the period of 1290 years (according to the Hebrew calendar) that followed the banning of the daily sacrifice and when Muslims and Christians controlled and fought over Jerusalem. The 45 years of the “days of the end” are 45 years that follow the return of Jerusalem to Jewish control. We now know that the 45 years of the “End Times” began when Jerusalem returned to Israeli control, which happened during the 1967 Six Day War. By adding 45 to 1967 we can establish that Daniel predicted Judgement Day would occur in 2012.

In addition to the calamities Daniel also predicts a great multitude of survivors, “ten thousand times ten thousand” will attend Judgement where the Almighty’s messenger called (by Daniel and Enoch) “the Ancient of Days” (Daniel 7:9-13) and in Revelation 7:2 “an Angel from the East” will pronounce judgement (or seal the servants of G0d); then the “Son of Man” (Messiah) will be seen and will be acknowledged and granted sovereignty over all the Earth. Judgement is predicted to come before the Messiah’s arrival. Nostradamus also predicts one who is “long awaited in Europe” but who will come from “the deepest part of Asia”, which may refer to the same messenger. This may also relate to the prediction in Malachi 4:5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord;” In the New Testament Jesus indicated that John the Baptist was Elijah reincarnate, and that “they did not recognise him”; could it be that Elijah (John) has again been reborn and is still not recognised?

Scripture also predicts the destruction of the world “as a result of the actions of its inhabitants” and the demise of two thirds of the Earth’s population. This indicates that 4.3 billion people will die this year, for more information on this read your Bible or buy my book Physics God and the End of the World. My advice is to forget the dire warnings and live a righteous life, trust that the promises in prophecy are as accurate as the warnings. Scripture tells us that if the Lord is your shelter you shall be saved, nothing else will work. Seek solace in faith, and if you think your friends or family will benefit from this knowledge pass on the link so that they too might be prepared and avoid becoming involved in the upheavals that are the birth pains of a new world. To find out more about what scripture really says about what will happen and when buy my new book The End of Time 2012 now available on Kindle and also for IPad, IPod and Android devices with the Kindle App. (Available as a download).
