12.21.12 THE END OF THE WORLD?
After the recent elections, someone wrote: The world ended on Nov 6, 2012. America will survive an election, but people the world over are panicking because they believe the ancient Mayan calendar which apparently predicted that 12/22/12 would be history for the entire planet. Recently, thousands of letters, some threatening suicide, have poured into government agencies like NASA.
But there is a brighter side. According to many experts, the Mayan calendar does not predict the absolute end of the world, but only the end of a cycle, thus offering a hopeful new beginning. Indeed many spiritual northerners every year go down to celebrate the rebirth of nature in those Mayan temples. This optimistic view is gaining influence worldwide in spiritual One-ist movements like Deep Shift, Harmonic Convergence, Earth Change, the feminist/Wiccan Sophianic Millennium and belief in the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
Barbara Marx Hubbard, influential authoress of Birth 2012, breathlessly announces that humanity is on the precipice of a new birthing process of peace, sustainability, health, and prosperity .the end of war, democracy for all, eradication of hunger, and education for everyone. Freedom. Opportunity. Global friendship These dreams are at our fingertips now December 22, 2012 is Day One for a new epoch of human possibility.
Catalyst events this December are being held throughout the world to make this happen, optimistically accompanied by an interfaith Christmas favorite, Joy from the World.
Note carefully. Such an upbeat vision is predicated upon the end of the Christian world. This new birth must eliminate from human society the first line of the ancient Christian creed: I believe in God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth. This is the great obstacle holding back the dawning of the Age of Aquarius.
For example, the influential progressive, Andrew Cohen, recent gave lecture is entitled: There is Only One, Not Two. Cohen states: all problems stem from the ignorance arising from Twoness, that is, the belief that God is the Creator, separate from us. Hence all is Two. Many Christians, unaware of this apocalyptic thinking, play into its hands by marginalizing respect for the Creator. Two examples:
In my last Inside/Out, our office manager, Mary Eady, related how Ashtanga yoga is now taught in her districts public schools and how many Christians practice this or other forms of yoga, unaware of the worldview stakes involved. Here is how Manju Jois, of the Hindu Jois Foundation, which gave $500K to the local school district, describes the essence of Yoga:
Yoga is to unite. You can unite with yourself whenever you want Thats what so-ham means: I am God, I am the Creator. I am the Vishnu, the Preserver; I am the Shiva, the destroyer; and I am the Creator, the Brahma. I am all three, the three is you God is not over there, he is inside of you

Certain Christians are capitulating to the powerful homosexual lobby and declaring same sex activity acceptable in Gods sight. Others are calling on the Church to be silent on the sinfulness of homosexuality and the distortion of gay marriage in order to avoid offending the culture or being charged with hatred and bigotryso that the culture can hear our message of love. However, leading homosexuals understand the worldview implications and call their sexuality a sacrament of monism, that is, as a physical embodiment of the spiritual rejection of a created Two-ist universe.
In both these areas (and there are many others), God the Creator is sidelined or denied. Alas, this means that the new spiritual era is dawningwith Christian collusion! Do not be fooled. The first goal of pagan One-ism is to wipe out from cultural consciousness of any memory of God the Creator. This constitutes the very organizing principle of the coming pagan world.
Christians must realize that you cannot preach the Gospel without the first statement of the creed, as the apostle Paul shows. Christ the Savior is the Creator. Christ is the image of the invisible God, by [whom] all things were created, the firstborn from the dead, [who] made peace by the blood of his cross(Col 1:15-20). Of his world, as the angel Gabriel declared, there will be no end (Luke 1:33). May Christmas 2012 remind us of that unique birth, the proof that God, not the Mayan calendar, is in control of history.
However the present cultural stakes are enormous. We must not worry that the Gospel will offend the cultureGod has told us that it most definitely will! Our concern should rather be the threat of a One-ist utopian world that will try to silence the worship of the Creator and render the Gospel of the Creators love illegal and meaningless. Dear Christian believer, this is no time to be ashamed of the full implications of the Gospel. Soli Deo gloria.
Not the “Blame Yoga” thing again....
It’s today if you’re dyslexic.
The early Christians lost their lives preaching the truth, will it be any different with the real Christians of today?
This earth will burn just like the two wicked cities did, but Gods people will not be here.
Before the world ends, I’m rejoining Facebook on 12/19 to say goodbye to everyone and if the world does not end, I’ll deactivate my Facebook account...again.
“Dec. 21, 2012... The End of the World?”
Sigh...we can only hope...
Fine by me .
Those Mayans were Stone Age cannibals! Why would anyone accept the delusional belief that such people could predict the future?
“This earth will burn just like the two wicked cities did, but Gods people will not be here.”
God’s people will probably be first on the Neo-Cannibal menu.
Just an opinion, ........
On December 22 Obama will go on national TV to claim he saved the World.
Gods people will probably be first on the Neo-Cannibal menu.
Just an opinion, ........
Same old thing all through the millenia from the Catholic church to any government.
Rule by creating fear in something.
So far the whole planet is living in an aura of fear, many believing some catastrophic event “may” occur.
And now almost anyone can gather an audience, a crowd, a flock of followers looking for supplicating by convincing them their ideology will help them past the Mayan prediction date.
Even Obama is using it.
