PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE OF THE MAYAN CALENDAR:
The End of the World is NOT Near! Balanced Biblical teaching does indicate that there is a new age coming,
during which Jesus Christ will reign. We do not set dates for future events! Fear and dread are not appropriate
for those who know Christ. Nevertheless, there is considerable concern about non-biblical
prophecies related to the end of the world in 2012. Prophecies from the Bible do not coincide with the Mayan
calendar or the prophecies of Nostradamus.
Nov. 15, 2012 - Over 3,000 books and countless websites claim that the Maya predicted the Earth will be destroyed on
December 21, 2012 -- the coming Winter Solstice. A Fox News documentary shows that the Mayans didn't actually predict an end-of-the-world scenario,
and scientists do not expect any major event on that date next month.
Debunking the doomsday scenarios are astronomer Anthony Aveni, physicist Michio Kaku, archaeologist Christopher Powell and author
Graham Hancock. Plus, psychiatrist Dr. Keith Ablow tells why the idea of a doomsday is appealing to some people.

In addition to a still vibrant scene of a king and his retinue, the walls are rife with calculations that helped ancient scribes track
vast amounts of time... the markings suggest dates thousands of years in the future.
May 4 - According to a poll conducted by Ipsos Global Public Affairs, one-seventh of the world's population believes that the world
could end in their lifetime. The poll included 16,262 people from all over the world. Many responders thought that there was some validity to
the 2012 Mayan calendar issue, while others think an apocalypse could come through the hands of God, a natural disaster, or a political event,
Only six percent of French residents believing in an impending Armageddon in their lifetime, compared to 22 percent in Turkey and

Mar. 26, 2012 - A growing stream of New Age believers is arriving at a French commune next to a mountain, Pic de Bugarach,
to wait for deliverance from the apocalypse on Dec. 21. They believe that aliens waiting in their spacecraft inside Pic de Bugarach
will save all the humans near by and beam them off to the next age.
Feb. 12, 2012 - A new National Geographics series, "Doomsday Preppers," had its debut this week. It deals with the fears that
many people have about possible cataclysms that might hit Earth in the near future. The end of the Mayan calendar this coming December
and general interest in Bible prophecy will be explored on the series. Preparation will be suggested for surviving doomsday scenarios.

I must recommend this outstanding documentary that is now available on DVD. It was produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, and hosted by

their astronomical achievements, and their incredibly accurate calendar.
Several of these guests are new-age philosophers. They think there is some spiritual importance to the date, but generally acknowledge
that the Mayans did not promote the idea of an apocalypse at the end of their so-called "long-count" calendar. It is the point in the
Earth's travels where it aligns somewhat with the center of the galaxy. To them, it is the beginning of a "new age," but not the end of
Gary Kah, a Bible scholar and an expert in the movement toward a one-world government and a united world religion, weighs in. He explains
that this date could be an impetus to the combining of religions under the influence of new age thinking. He sees the possibility of demonic
activity accompanying these days leading to the target date. However, he warns that the Bible's end-time predictions do not necessarily
coincide with this phenomenon.
Mark Hitchcock, a respected Bible prophecy teacher who has published books on the 2012 issue, gives a number of reasons why people should
ignore most of the hype that has been building up as we approach the December 21 date. The documentary includes many of our favorite
