Es 2012 el Ultimo A@o
Tomo esta nota del Blog Y-Jesus, pues reune las apreciaciones que yo mismo he declarado muchas personas que me han preguntado sobre esta especulacion.
Is 2012 the Last Year?
As we celebrate the beginning of 2012, the media is once again buzzing with end-of-world prophecies. December 21, 2012 is the end date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar¹, which some have interpreted as a prediction of the end of the world. Some adherents to this view are now even making “last year on Earth” resolutions.
According to ABC News:
“The Mayans predicted a final event that included a solar shift, a Venus transit and violent earthquakes.
Their Long Count calendar begins in 3,114 B.C., marking time in roughly 394-year periods known as Baktuns. Thirteen was a significant, sacred number for the Mayas, and they wrote that the 13th Baktun ends on Dec. 21, 2012.
The doomsday theories stem from a stone tablet discovered in the 1960s at the archaeological site of Tortuguero in the Gulf of Mexico state of Tabasco that describes the return of a Mayan god at the end of a 13th period.”
U.S.-based National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) says these stories started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth.³ The collision will supposedly cause widespread destruction on Earth and put an end to life on our planet. Others have proposed Planet X or Eris as the means of our extermination.
Other theories include galactic alignments, solar storms, magnetic pole reversal, or other catastrophic events. But what does the Bible say?
According to God’s Word, the end times are associated with the second coming of Christ. And it warns us that no one knows when that will be.
“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. Be on guard! Be alert! You do not know when that time will come. It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch. Therefore keep watch because you do not know when the owner of the house will come back—whether in the evening, or at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or at dawn. If he comes suddenly, do not let him find you sleeping. What I say to you, I say to everyone: ‘Watch!’” (Mark 13:32-37 NIV).
