"For No Man To know"
So what will you be doing on December 21, 2012? Well, if you think that you will be saying goodbye to your friends and family and sitting back to watch the end of the World, you are not alone.
According to AOL News yesterday. AOL/ ABC News- Thousands Expect Apocalypse in 2012
(July 6) - Survival groups around the world are gearing up and counting down to a mysterious date that has been anticipated for thousands of years: Dec. 21, 2012.
Across the United States, Canada and throughout Europe, apocalyptic sects and individuals say that is the day that the world as we know it will end, ABCnews.com reports.
Ancient Mayan societies, known for their advanced mathematics and astronomy, followed a "long count" calendar that lasted 5,126 years. When their charts are translated to the Gregorian calendar, the international standard used today, time runs out on Dec. 21, 2012.
But apparently this is not the only "signs" that the world will end on this day. According to this report.
Believers say there are other links besides just the Mayan calendar that portend catastrophe. The sun will be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years on the same day, which marks the winter solstice. Some say that will disrupt the energy flow to Earth, or that the high rate of sunspots or sun flares that NASA has predicted for 2012 could affect Earth magnetic fields.
Now this is not new. All kinds of people, Religious and non alike, have predicted from time to time, the end of time. It is also logical to assume that this will happen. As a matter of fact, it WILL happen. But 1n 2012? That I'm not so sure of.
You see folks, everything has a beginning, middle, and end. EVERYTHING. With one exception. God. Everything that is created has a beginning, a span of existence, and an end. It wasn't, it is, it passes away.
From the beginning of time, man has predicted the end of it. We have people from all walks of life touting that they know when this will happen. From people like Nostradamus, to these folks studying the Mayan calendar, to kooks that have created cults of those willing to kill themselves for their new Messiah. People have also used this natural fear of the end of the world to control others. Hence, GWBS being the latest in a long line.
Science tells us that there is a possibility of us just ceasing to exist. One big asteroid hitting the right spot and poof, we are outahere. Nuclear fall out from an all out Nuclear War blocking the Sun. Poof, we are outahere. If the Earth was to stop spinning, poof we are outahere, ETC.
Then you have the religious aspect of this. You have people that will tell you that the Bible says this will happen, and so it will. This is true. HOWEVER, they then go completely against what the Bible ACTAULY says, and start telling you that they know WHEN it will.
According to some religious sects, when the Bible tells us that the end times will come during wars and rumors of wars, and there will be floods and droughts, great natural disasters in diverse places, that is the end. Then they look at the world and see Iraq, California fires, floods across the country, and now some areas fighting for food, because of the whole Alternative Fuel stupidity, they say "SEE! The end is here." But they leave out one VERY important part of the predictions of the Bible.
36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Matthew 24
In other words folks, what Jesus tells us is that when the last day comes, you will get up, go to work, school, or whatever it is that you have planed for that day, and not have a clue that it is your last. In a micro cosom example, take 9-11. On 9-11, people woke up, they kissed their loved ones goodbye, talked about what they were going to do later, and went to work. Boom. This country changed forever. No one knew what was about to happen. The end of days, according to Jesus, will be just like this. We will simply be living our lives and the end will come.
So since Jesus himself said, "But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only." ANY time someone comes out and tells me something like this. December 21, 2012 is the last day of the world, I just smile and move on with mine. Think about how many people there are that most likely STILL have can goods stored up from the turn to 2000. Life goes on.
I just wanted to let some of you, that may be a little nervous when your heard things like this, know that it really is simple. The end WILL come. If it is 12/21/2012, ten years, 1000 years, or tomorrow, no one knows. YOUR last day could happen tomorrow if you get into an accident, have a heart attack, whatever. Everyday in the world, is someones last day. So live your lives as if it is. Do not fear tomorrow, for it may never come. Do not live in the past, for it already has. Concentrate on the today. Tell those you love you do. Do what you want to do. Live your life to the fullest. When it is YOUR time, or the end of the world itself, it just simply IS. There is nothing you can do about it. So be happy, and live while you can.
