Why the world will not end on December 21, 2012.
by Whitney Reed
The 2012 doomsday prediction is a very interesting story that has captured the imaginations of many. For some, it has captured more than their imaginations, and they are actually preparing for the end of days.
According to the ancient Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, December21, 2012, is the last day of a 5,125 year long cycle. It is believed that either a cataclysmic event (end of times) or a transformative event (physical or spiritual change) will occur at the end of this cycle. Although most scholars dismiss this predication as credible, it is still a popular belief that many hold as truth.
But anyone who knows the word of God knows that there is no truth in this doomsday scenario. According to Matthew 24:36-39, no one knows when the end of days will come.
“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” Matthew 24:36-39 New International Version
Therefore, if you are a believer in the Christian faith, you should give this doomsday theory no thought. However, because we can’t know the day Jesus Christ will return, we should remain vigilant and steadfast in our faith, at all times.
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”
Matthew 24:42-44 New International Version
