2012 … The End Of The World?

by Jack Kelley

“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.” (Luke 21:25)

The year 2012 is lining up as a uniquely pivotal year in many respects. Aside from the fact that some futurists are predicting world wide food and job riots by then, and the two most powerful thrones on Earth (US and UN) will be up for election, there is a never before seen confluence of signs in the heavens due to arrive then. In case you’ve been visiting another planet for the past couple of years, here they are.

Mayan Calendar Ends. Dec.21, 2012

By way of introduction, somehow the Mayans knew that the Sun travels in an orbit through the galaxy just like the planets of our solar system travel in an orbit around the Sun. They calculated that it requires 25,625 of our years for the Sun to complete one circle, called a galactic day. The Mayans divided this day into 5 cycles of 5125 years each. According to their calendar the current cycle, which is the 5th, will end on the day we know as Dec. 21, 2012, the winter solstice.

The Mayan Calendar does not necessarily predict the world will end on that day, as some think, but they did believe that the Sun, having reached the exact center of the galaxy, would receive and emit a powerful surge of light from this alignment and would reverse its polarity. This would cause a great cosmic event on Earth and result in the end of life as we know it. Below are some modern confirmations that will demonstrate how startlingly accurate the Mayans were. They lend more credibility to the view that the influence of the Nephilim with their supernatural knowledge might have been much more widespread than previously thought. Hints of their meddling can be seen worldwide.

According to the Mayans, the effect of all this will depend on our reaction to it. If, as a civilization, we try to cling to our current ways we’ll suffer chaos and destruction. But if we change to become united in one positive consciousness and stop fighting each other and poisoning our environment we’ll enter our Golden Age. Sounds straight out of the New Age, doesn’t it?

Magnetic Polar Reversal, Earth And Sun Combined. 2012

I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to earth, as late figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place. (Rev. 6:12-14)

Over the past few years the magnetic North pole has been drifting across Canada and is headed for Siberia. Also, the Earth’s magnetic field has weakened noticeably when compared to its strength when scientists began measuring it in 1845. Based on these findings, some scientists are now convinced that a reversal of the Earth’s magnetic poles is underway. They’re predicting that in 2012 the magnetic field will be at its weakest and a polar reversal could suddenly and dramatically take place with the North pole having the polarity of the South pole and vice versa.

In 2012 the Sun will also experience a polar reversal producing radiation emissions at their strongest levels in 50 years. Although the Sun’s magnetic poles reverse every eleven years, in the memory of man the Earth has never experienced such an event. While no one can predict the outcome of this double shift, it could produce massive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions of a magnitude that could actually cause a measurable continental shift.

A study by the National Academy of Sciences released in early 2009 indicated that a “solar storm” like this could also cause catastrophic damage to the power grid and other communications as well, knocking out satellites, phones, and computers. They confirmed that the 2012 event would be more severe than others we’ve experienced in the past.

If this reversal caused the magnetic field around Earth to collapse, the effect would be even more severe. According to some projections, the electromagnetic energy released from the sun during a polar reversal could cause Earth’s upper atmosphere to “erupt in flames” if our magnetic field isn’t there to deflect it. Was John referring to this in saying the sky vanished like a scroll being rolled up? No one knows. We can only imagine what a sudden reversal of magnetic poles would do to life on Earth. Predictions range all the way from a temporary increase in the frequency and severity of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes to a worldwide disaster of “Biblical proportions.”

Galactic Alignment. Sun At The Center Of The Milky Way. Dec. 21, 2012

Then the angel took the censer, filled it with fire from the altar, and hurled it on the earth; and there came peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning and an earthquake.(Rev. 8:5)
The mountains skipped like rams, the hills like lambs. (Psalm 114:4)

In December 2012 the Sun will reach the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, as the Mayans predicted, with all the planets lined up in their orbits behind it, like little chicks behind their mother. Some scientists believe this will amplify the Sun’s gravitational pull on Earth causing increased instability in its inner core. They say the increased gravitational pull combined with increased radiation from the twin polar reversals will heat the Earth’s molten core and cause it to spin faster. This could result in anything from more frequent and more powerful earthquakes to volcanic eruptions, great tsunamis and even displacement of the Earth’s crust.

Planet X Returns To The Solar System. 2012

The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

The third angel sounded his trumpet, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water- the name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the waters that had become bitter. (Rev. 8:8-11)

Planet X has been the subject of much debate among scientists, both as to its actual existence and its name. Some refer to Planet X as Nibiru, a large planet listed in 5000 year old Sumerian tablets, but missing from the Solar system today.  Others say it’s Rahab, the ancient seat of Satan, hinted at in Job 9:13 & 26:12, Psalm 87:4 & 89:10, and in Isaiah 30:7 & 51:9. Those who advocate for its existence say it’s been privately tracked by NASA since the 1980’s and both the New York Times and the Washington Post have speculated about its appearance in the sky. Documented naked eye sightings from the Southern Hemisphere are also claimed.

The name Rahab appears in the Old Testament a total of 11 times.  Five times it refers to the Rahab of Jericho who hid the 2 spies, was the mother of Boaz, and appears in the Lord’s genealogy.  The other six times, listed above, it does not.  Some believe these other references are to a planet that was once part of our Solar system and that Satan and his followers inhabited along with Earth and Mars. These people disagree as to whether it was originally our 5th or 6th planet, but supposedly these three planets were judged at the time of Satan’s rebellion in the gap between Genesis 1:1 & 1:2 . They also disagree as to whether it was completely destroyed leaving only the asteroid belt as a memorial, or was sent spinning out into the far reaches of the universe, or some combination of the two. Proponents of the partial destruction theory say that the remnant of the planet Rahab can now be seen again, and that God will use it to effect some of the judgments of Revelation.

To many, this idea of Satan’s Kingdom planet re-entering our solar system is wild conjecture. After all, they say, it was developed out of a study combining the apocryphal Book of Enoch with the application of ELS (Equi-distant Letter Sequencing), commonly known as the Bible Codes. But if we’re as close to the end as I think we are, it won’t be long until we know whether the Rahab theories are truth or fiction. For what it’s worth, some believe Nostradamus predicted a comet/planet coming in 2012.

In any case, whether you call it X, or Nibiru, or Rahab, there are some serious people who believe it’s headed our way and will at least come dangerously close to Earth in 2012, showering us with the asteroids it has captured and causing great damage on Earth.

What’s The Point?

The short answer to the title question is, “No. 2012 will not bring the end of the world.” But without attempting to tie these predicted events to specific prophecies, I think it’s interesting to see how similar the Biblical descriptions of end times judgments are to the scientific view of possible coming events. Due to the nearness of 2012, I only used verses from Revelation that describe judgments during the first half of Daniel’s 70th Week , before the Great Tribulation even begins. After that it gets much worse very quickly.

See, the day of the LORD is coming -a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger- to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.  The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light. The rising sun will be darkened and the moon will not give its light.  I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless. I will make man scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir.  Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. (Isaiah 13:9-13)

So what will the 2012 disasters accomplish? I believe that God will use these and other End Times judgments to begin putting the Earth back into the condition it was when He gave it to Adam. Remember, Jesus called the Millennium the time of restoration of all things (Matt. 19:28) and Paul said the whole creation has been groaning in anticipation of being liberated from the bondage it was subjected to. (Romans 8:20-21). And at the beginning of the Millennium God will proclaim, “I am making everything new.” (Rev. 21:5)

Since the creation, mountains have been pushed up and valleys made lower to contain the enormous amounts of water generated in the Great Flood. The protective water vapor canopy that permitted long life spans in pre-flood times collapsed at the time of the Flood. Earth’s land mass has been pushed apart to form the current continents and islands, the Earth’s orbit has been extended by 5 ¼ days, and its axis tilted by 23.44 degrees. All this and more will have to be fixed in order for Earth to once again be the paradise it was created to be.

You and I will view all of this from the mezzanine during our time of repose with the Lord. On Earth it will be the beginning of the most terrible time known to man.

Woe to you who long for the day of the LORD! Why do you long for the day of the LORD ? That day will be darkness, not light. It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him. Will not the day of the LORD be darkness, not light-pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness? (Amos 5:18-20) You can almost hear the Footsteps of the Messiah (08-29-09)

  1. i dont understand i thought that when god comes back he would bring us all to heaven and leaves thoughs who are not loyal to him here while satan comes back and turns earth into hell i know i dont go to church much or read the bible alot but this all seems harsh people should of never been cruel to the world when he made it for us to live

  2. Hi Arieanna! Right now we are living in the “Age of Grace”. All who ask Jesus to cleanse them of their sins and come into their heart & life with a sincere heart during this time will be saved by the grace of God through his son Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will enter into them and seal their redemption in Christ. Jesus is going to come for all who are saved and bring us to be with him in what is known as “The Rapture”. This can happen at anytime. Nothing more has to happen for this to occur. Once it does occur the anti christ is going to come onto the scene and sign a 7 yr. peace treaty with Israel. This will start the “Tribulation Period”. This is a time of judment on the nations and people who rejeceted Chist and the time in which God brings the Jews back to him. All who did not accept Christ will be left behind to go through this period. People will come to Christ and be saved during this period, but doing so will mean death for most at the hands of the anti christ. At the end of the 7 yr. tribulation period. Christ physically returns to the earth and cast satan and all who are evil into the lake of fire. He then sets up his reign on earth and all who are saved during the tribulation and the Jews will go into the Millenial Kingdom age which will last 1,000 years. We who are saved during the Age of Grace will reign and rule with Christ during this time. This is the short summarized verison, but I hope it helps! May God bless you!

  3. Wow; I am so with you here! You really have a gift, and I know you are writing in the faith of our Lord. I, too, observe the writings in the Book of Enoch, which some count taboo ~~ especially with regard to the Nephilim. I wrote a hub called, “The Origin of the Nephilim”, which is fairly interesting 🙂

    I am so looking for the rapture and the end of this world as we know it; it’s just waxing worse and worse. Not only the natural disasters, but the economy, the threat of war, dictators and false christs…the hatred, the stress…and yet, it’s only in labor ~ the baby’s yet to be born, our new heaven and new earth.

    I praise God I found you and I thoroughly enjoyed the read ~ it will be fascinating to see the unfolding of prophecy right before our spiritual eyes…

  4. Thanks Judah’s Daughter for your kind words! May God bless you with his words and thoughts as you write out of your love and faith in him!

  5. Thank you once again MR Kelly, faithwalker and the team.
    I guess we just have to wait and see it for ourselves.

    I just had few things in mind which am mentioning.

    Will the rapture trigger the last week of Daniel because it says in Revelation 11– And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. [13] And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

    Have you thought about Revelation 10:10, Ezekiel 3:3 and wh was Daniel asked to keep the prophecy a secret in Daniel ch 4

  6. Hi Sourav,
    In my opinion the rapture does not trigger the tribulation period. I believe the rapture will occur before the start of the tribulation period. What triggers the start of the tribulation period will be the confirmation of a peace covenant between Israel and many nations. The man who gets Israel to sign that treaty will be the anti christ. Here is the scripture:

    Daniel 9:27
    He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him. “

    The verse in Rev. 11 that you are referencing is speaking of the two witnesses. After 3 1/2 days of laying in the street dead, God will breath life into them and THEY will hear him call them up into the cloud.

    In Rev. 10:10:
    I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour.

    The trumpet judments were about over (only 1 left). The bowl judments are about to begin signaling the start of the Great tribulation period (the final 3 1/12 years). This is when God pours out his wrath on all the nations and people who rejected him. So I believe in Rev. 10:10 the scroll is God’s word. It is sweet to all those who heard it and were saved but for those who rejected it it is sour.

    Ezekiel 3:3 Then he said to me, “Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it.” So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.

    I believe this scripture supports what I said above. If you notice in the very next verse 4:

    4 He then said to me: “Son of man, go now to the house of Israel and speak my words to them.

    He was commanded to speak God’s word after having eaten the scroll.

    The verse you mention in Daniel I assume is this one:

    Daniel 12:9
    He replied, “Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up and sealed until the time of the end.

    This verse addresses a time in which people would come to understand the things Daniel had prophesied about, but until that time they would not be able to be understood. For reasons to lenghty to go into here,I believe that time has arrived. One of them is the revival of the the roman empire in the European Union. Which is described in Daniel’s statue dream and the dream of the beast.

    I hope this helps! May God Bless you Sourav!

  7. I hate to break it to you folks, but you do realise that we orbit at a constant distance from the centre of the galaxy ? Passing through the centre isn’t orbiting it and orbital mechanics says it just won’t happen to us on the timescales you’re talking about here..

    We’ve got a few billion years left before the Sun dies, so I’d stop worrying about a mythical rapture and start worrying about global warming and climate change that will make life very unpleasant for your grandchildren and great grandchildren (possibly even your children at the rate we’re going)..

  8. Hi Chris! I’m sorry to hear you have placed your faith in man and man’s theories instead of in God and his word which have been proven true over and over again. Just because you don’t belive in God and the rapture of the church doesn’t make it any less real. It is true the timing is in God’s hands, but he gave us signs to know when it was upon us and those signs are occuring all around us. Time is short for people to accept Christ in the age of grace…whether you choose to believe it or not! I pray God will open your eyes before it’s too late!

  9. I’m sorry, that doesn’t make any sense. The existence (or not) of people has nothing at all with how stars orbit around galaxies, it just happens that way. All people have done is to try and describe what happens mathematically. If you wanted to put a religious perspective on that you could say that people are trying to learn God(s) laws describing how he/she/they/it built the universe.

    I am also puzzled by the way that Christians seem to be taking non-Christian mythology as truth, especially myths from a society who thought that human sacrifice was an acceptable practice.

    It’s especially surprising given that it appears there isn’t any evidence that the Maya themselves predicted anything special would happen at that date. In fact there are Mayan inscriptions that reference dates beyond 2012, which would be an odd thing to do if you thought the world would already have ended by then. 🙂

    It would probably be instructive to read this page on the realities of the Mayan calendar system.

    By the way, if the Sun ever did try and get to the centre of our galaxy we wouldn’t have to worry about gravitational effects on the cores of the sun or the earth, we’d have already been wiped out by the supermassive black hole that is likely to be there.

  10. Welcome back Chris! I think there may be a misunderstanding of why Christians are interested in the year 2012 and how it relates to the Mayan calendar. Hopefully I can give you a better understanding from a Christian perspective. First, you need to understand that most Christians know we are living in the last days and that Christ will be returning soon for his bride the church (people who have accepted Jesus as their savior and have received his forgiveness). We know this from Bible prophecy. Almost a full 1/3 of the Bible is prophecy and every one of them has been fulfilled exactly as they were written except for those that are still waiting to be fulfilled in the future. Here is an article you might find interesting about God’s prophetic word: Can You Believe Bible Prophecy? God gave us signs to look for through prophecy so we would know when his return is near. He told us there would be signs in the sun, moon, and stars:

    Luke 21:25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;

    It is because of this that Christians find the Mayan calendar and what some scientist are saying about 2012 interesting. It is important to take note though that Christians who are sound in their theology don’t believe the world is going to end in 2012. In fact we know it is not! Here’s why:

    There are differing opinions between some Christians as to when Christ will come for the church. I believe in the Pre Tribulation rapture of the church and it is from that view I am speaking to you. With that in mind we believe Jesus will come and remove all the people from the earth who have received him as their savior:

    1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 Because the Lord Himself shall come down from Heaven with a commanding shout of an archangel’s voice, and with God’s trumpet. And the dead in Christ will rise again first. Then we who remain alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to a meeting with the Lord in the air. And so we will always be with the Lord. So, then, comfort each other with these words.

    1 Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor does corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed— 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

    Soon after this occurs the people left behind will enter the seven year tribulation period in which God fulfills two purposes. First, he uses this time to bring the Jewish people back into relationship with him. Second, he brings his judgment against a world that has rejected him. This will be the worst time ever in all of history.

    After this seven year time period, the people who survived and who received Christ as their savior and the Jewish people who turned back to God during this time period will enter the Millennial Kingdom. This is a 1,000 year time period in which Jesus Christ himself will have returned to earth with all the Saints (those who were saved before the tribulation) to rule over all the nations. At the end of this 1,000 years, God will make a new Heaven and earth.

    So with all this in mind, I hope you understand that we only look at the Mayan calendar as a possible indicator that God’s word is nearing fulfillment. We are not concerned about what the planets or the sun do, because our faith is in God and we already know what his plan is. Our only real concern is for the lost who do not understand God’s love for them and who have not received Jesus as their savior!
