2012 and the Apocalypse

The movie “2012” was the ultimate action movie. The special effects were numerous and amazing throughout the show. It was based on the fact that the Mayan calendars end at 2012, and the assumption that this would mean that the Earth would be destroyed at that time.

According to Mayan historians this date would not be the end of the world, but just the end of their long cycle of time based on their study of the stars. The Egyptians had similar beliefs about this cycle. Both cultures were aware of the fact that the position of the constellations changes very slowly over time, due to the tilt of the Earth’s axis. The time it would take for the Constellations to make a complete cycle would be nearly 26,000 years. At the end of that cycle the Earth and Solar System would supposedly be aligned with the galactic plane of the Milky Way.

The movie revolves around the idea that huge explosions on the surface of the Sun, known as Coronal Mass Ejections (CME) will increase because of this alignment of our Solar System with the Milky Way Galaxy. These CMEs might supposedly cause overheating of the Earth’s core and result in worldwide disaster.

“2012” is great entertainment, but it should not be taken seriously either from a scientific or a biblical point of view. NASA, the preeminent authority on space science says that there is no scientific reason for these dreaded events to take place. They have posted a special website to answer questions about the movie’s claims.

In the movie, one person explained that many cultures and religions had come to similar conclusions about the coming disaster. He added that even the Bible agreed – sort of. The truth is, the Bible doesn’t tell the same story. The only biblical evidence given was from the so-called Bible Codes, which has already been discounted by most Bible scholars. The Bible does predict great disasters, such as earthquakes and meteor collisions. But these things will not destroy the Earth. They will be judgments from God, but the Earth will still be inhabited when Jesus returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords (Revelation 19).

What the movie does do for Bible prophecy is to illustrate how world-wide disasters can develop quickly in the future. It also shows how some of the events of Noah’s flood might have taken place.

  1. What a great evangelism tool! It opens the door to all sorts of possibilities, not the least of which is offering the only hope for our future – be it tomorrow morning or 2012. Isn’t is fascinating how many sci-fi and/or occult programs/movies are out there right now? The enemy’s working overtime to deceive – and where sin abounds, grace does all the more!

    Blessings,

    We as Christians have been given the Holy Bible, the inspired Word of God. The Bible is a blueprint for us, among other things. If God had wanted us to know anything other than the Bible says, it is my opinion that those details would have been in it. The Bible is a forecast of the future, totally undated. The thinking person would conclude that we, indeed, must be living in the latter days. This thinking is based on what the Bible tells us, although without calendar dates, what will occur on the earth at that time. It should be borne in mind that the Bible tells us “what” is going to happen, but does not give the intricate details (names, dates, etc) of those happenings. Some think the Bible Codes is the key. I don’t know if that is correct or not, as the Bible does not mention an instruction sheet in it for the purpose of unlocking those codes. Again, no details. No names. Neither do I think we are intended to read the Bible, trying each day to match its teachings to the newspaper. That in the past has proven a futile exercise. Instead we are to read the Bible daily and be open to the Holy Spirit for guidance, not CNN or Fox news.

  10. I usually dont take the time to post comments, however it is difficult to find actual info on this subject today. You did a wonderful job in this post and I am going to take the time to read the rest of your blog. Keep up the good work!

  11. 2012 presents a strange and bizarre confluence of multiple beliefs, mythologies, traditions, predictions, prophecies, and even cosmologies. Never before has one period of time (or even one date — December 21, 2012) been the object of so much dooms day speculation.

    I caught the film the other night. I was actually disappointed. Thought it could be improved.

  13. Quite frankly, I think people always talking about when the world ends is just pathetic. Live your life to the fullest while you still have to time.

Kim Clement is an diverse and extemporaneous perspective has gained him notoriety that transcends culture, race and religion, placing him onto a world platform. He has performed at the Rose Bowl Stadium in California, Times Square in New York City, Mt. Carmel in Israel and even the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C.

    I look forward to seeing the movie 2012? this weekend. The CGI looked great. Maybe the story and acting won’t be up to par for everyone but the 6 bucks I’ll be paying for the matinee…. well… I think it will be well worth the price for the big special effects alone.
