The Year 2012 (⊙.◎)

1 Corinthians 1:3
Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

I want to start today with the year many people are disturbed with the "earth destruction" that is to come on December 12, 2012.
I believe only on what the Bible tells us about the last days. Noting else.

Satan is trying to take our focus off God, he twist God's word to manipulates and confuse people.
Now everybody is talking about the year "2012". The enemy knows that "man" in general is very weak when it comes to natural disasters. The first action is to sensationalize these acts through Hollywood, and after that panic takes over the world.

There is no doubt that these events will take place,  the Bible tell us very clear that these are God's plans... Jesus is coming for His people and at the same time He is coming to punish the sinners and because people have become corrupted and they have sin against God more than ever, God will destroyed the world.
In other words we the elects, the ones that walk with the Lord, will be taken before all these things take place.

Isaiah 13:9
Behold, the day of the LORD comes, Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger, To lay the land desolate; And He will destroy its sinners from it.

Isaiah 13:13
Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the LORD ofthe day of His fierce anger. 

I would like to ask you one thing...How is it that God tells us in the Bible that NOT even His Son knows the day or the hour of when all these things will take place.

Mark 13:32
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.

If that's what the Bible tell come people think that God had chosen the Mayas to disclosed that DAY (the Apocalypse) on their calendar????
I think that the Mayas ran out rock to keep curving their calendar!! That's all.
I'm a descended from the Maya race, I would like to think that God had chosen my ancestors to reveal the most important DAY (the Apocalypse). I don't think so!!!

The truth is, that that's not what the Bible (the word of God) tell us...

Matthew 25:13
"Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming. 

Be vigilant...yes we are living in the last days, so don't waist your life, don't be doing things that displease God, because we don't know the day or the hour, so be don't want to be here in this world, to suffer the "Wrath of the Lord"  

1 Thessalonians 5:9
For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Thessalonians 4:16
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.

Thessalonians 4:17
Then we who are alive [and] remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.

Amen Patty!!!! I thought the same thing, Jesus doesn't even know the day or time, it's just a way to scare us and take the focus off God. Just another temptation by the devil.

Why all the fascination with the end-times? If you believe we live in the-end times doesn't it drain one's motivation to do good on this Earth and IMPROVE life for men? You probably even feel that we will live through the end-times; I think this is a dangerous thought to have. If a Nuclear blast came down and wiped life on Earth, you'd probably not see it as a bad thing, because you'd believe it was god's will.

Men have learned how to precipitate mass destruction, than learn how to get a long. Why? Why has religion taught us to hate and destroy our fellow men based on their character?

I do believe this world will end. But not because of god. But because men will continue to threaten our way of life based on theological ideals; this worries me.

Oh and if you read your bible a little bit closer, Jesus always thought the end-times was near. What does "near" mean? Like when he said it to his followers, they will bear witness to the rapture.

Matthew 10:23 he says:
When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes.

(Matt. 25:31-46) In these verses, Jesus puts absolutely no value on earthly wealth, fame, power, etc. Therefore, one should focus on purifying their character and spreading the gospel, oppose to living a pleasent, successful life on Earth. Essentially, you are applying to get into Heaven when the Earth is destroyed.

@ Little Patrick
My sweet, sweet son...The end of times it's not a fascination! it is a fact.
The end of times should make people do good, because it is not only about you dieing at the end, but it is about where you want your soul to go...the end of times is actually the Beginning of your eternity.
God doesn't wants us to spend eternity suffering the torments of hell.
God wants us to be with Him, that is why He gave us the Bible to let us know that there is a way to save your soul.
You like it or not the only way is Jesus. You know Jesus so you should be more understanding of what I'm trying to say on my post.

Thanks mi hijo for knowing that I trust God with all my heart. Yes when the time comes "I'll be in Jesus arms" that is why I don't worry about the disasters that are to come.
Everything that it is to come "Yes" it is God's Will..You got that right.

Religion is something separed from God. Religion is man made.
The Bible is the word of God, you have to study the Bible to understand God, and going to church help you to do that, religion doesn't have anything to do with your relationship with God.

So if for a little while man tried to get alone with each other is because they know that fighting doesn't take them anywhere, and because the US was founded under God...this is the only country that comes up with World Peace. But we have too many enemies in this world that is why is hard to stay in peace for too long; and Satan is ruling this world right now, that is why the end has to come. Everything it has been written in the Bible.

Do not worry about man destroying this is evil and will never learn from history. It is all about power, unfortunately!!
Worry about your relationship with God, your Creator. God will give that peace and understanding of the things that are happening in this world.

Yes, Jesus knows that the end is coming like all of us, but the Bible said that He doesn't know the day or the hour.

Matthew 10:23 he says:
When they persecute you in one town, flee to the next; for truly, I say to you, you will not have gone through all the towns of Israel, before the Son of man comes.
Jesus commands us to teach others about His love. He knows that end will come before His name is known all over the world, even dough we have a lot of missionaries out there, not everybody will accept Jesus before the end comes.

Matthew 25:31-46
Jesus is valuing the heart of man; we are all together in this earth, we should help one another. This is what Jesus wants us to do.
Jesus is not against worldly wealth, on the contrary He wants us to have the richness this world can offer, "But" he doesn't wants us to become worshiper of material things, He doesn't wants us to be obsess with material things.
Jesus always wants us to be thankful and humble for everything He had bless us with.
He wants us to seek Him first and the rest will be added by His Grace.
