For those of you who read the Bible, you may be familiar about the end of the world. The Bible points to a war of good and evil preceding the end of days. Christ’s followers will do battle with the legions of Satan. Whoever wins will seize the earth and all of its inhabitants. The Mayan Calendar has also left us with a profound mystery… something to think about… something to fear – December 2012, end of the world.
The Mayans, Egyptians, Nostradamus, the Book of Revelation, and even other world religions have all predicted that doomsday will eventually occur. Some have predicted that a galactic alignment shall occur on December 21, 2012, which will mark the end of the world.
But people shouldn’t really be scared of this approaching date. December 21, 2012 is probably not going to be Armageddon like what the media led us into believing. Besides, the Mayans really believed that December 21, 2012 would actually be more of a transition phase, pointing to a new period in time. They never predicted it to actually be the end of the world, but the beginning of a new age. They said that eventually mankind would have to change and continue to adapt naturally to the world climate.
Another way to look at it is that mankind will enter the seventh day of creation or the “Sabbath Rest”. This theory is based on the Creation Story, where God created the heavens and the earth in six days, and rested on the seventh day. According to theologists, God’s day is equivalent to 26,000 human years. It is believed that December 21, 2012 is the seventh day or the day of rest. It will begin a season of peace for mankind. Evil and sickness will be erased and Christ will return to lead his people. Some even believe that the dead will return and join the living on that peaceful day.
Whether or not doomsday is fast approaching remains a mystery. But the important thing here is that we make the most of today and live our lives to the fullest.Are you prepared for an emergency?
