There were a WHOLE lot of updates yesterday about 12/12/12 and even more talk about the Mayan predicted apocalypse which is supposed to take place on December 21, 2012. Yep, we’re just over 1 week away to the doomed date.
Apparently there will be some major partying going down on the 20th and the 21st. I for one will not be partying.
By the way…It is gonna happen.
But here’s the scoop. No one knows when.
The Bible makes it pretty clear that no one knows the day or hour… not even the angels in heaven… NOT even the Son… only the Father. (Matthew 24:36)
Now, was Jesus meaning the temple or end times? Let’s tackle that one at another date 🙂 For now, I’m going to assume that this statement refers to end times prophecy.
No matter what cray cray prophet televangelist or christian fiction author tells you, there is no code that that will allow you to determine the day that the trumpets will sound, the dead will rise, and Jesus comes again. If you hear that someone has determined it… just walk away.
It is sad, but these people who claim to know the date because they’ve applied some biblical algorithm, are often the ones that provide the biggest stumbling block to non believers.
We’re told that the day will be like any other day. When you think about what happened in Noah’s time, other than Noah’s family, no one knew that judgement was at hand. Normal will be shattered all at once.
We are to be awake and on guard. Like the disciples in the garden, we’re not to fall asleep on the job. Jesus gave us many examples of how we are to be working diligently using gifts and talents that God gave us for His glory. By the way, that doesn’t mean that works is required… just that we should want to do these works.
So… the end of the world will happen. Jesus is coming soon.
