End & New Beginning

Concern About The Year 2012

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.

Fox News Reporting: Countdown to Doomsday

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.

DVD: 2012: Prophecy or Panic?

I must recommend this outstanding documentary that is now available on DVD. It was produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, and hosted by Jeff Douglas. He walks through the magnificent ruins of the ancient Mayan culture and thoroughly explores the phenomenon of their ancient calendar, which ends on December 21 of this year. People are wondering… Is the end of the world? Or is it nothing at all?

The 87-minute professional production gives the opportunity for many experts to give their opinions about the Mayans, their culture, 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 the world.

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 teachers: Chuck Missler, Jack Kinsella, Donald Perkins, and more.

Add this documentary to your collection of must-have DVDs. It will answer your questions and could be an effective tool for witnessing to non-Christians.
