The Hollywood film company Sony had its greatest success this year with the end of the world film epic "2012" which had the theme of how the Mayan calendar predicts that the end of the world will happen on December 21, 2012 - three years from today. The film has caused many people around the world to look into the claims of the ancient Mayan people who lived in the area of Central America near Mexico over 1000 years ago and were masters at keeping time without any of the instruments that we have today like the computer.
The Mayan calendar, according to the ancient writings that have been discovered in recent years, is to end in 2012 with a global catastrophic event in what many are calling the end of the world.
Jimmy's Prophetic prospective on the News
According to the Hollywood film epic "2012" this world will come to an end exactly three years from today which is in contradiction to what Bible prophecy says about the end of the world.
The Hollywood production "2012" made a lot of money for its producer, the Sony company, and at the same time, brought to the attention of everyone that saw this epic film, the possibility of the world coming to an end on December 21, 2012. Let me set you at ease. The world will not end on December 21, 2012 according to Bible prophecy.
The prophetic scenario for the end times includes a number of events before the end of the world. The next event is the Rapture of the church followed by a seven year period of judgment on the Earth called the Tribulation (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 4-19). Jesus Christ will return to the Earth (Zechariah 14:4) and set up His thousand year kingdom (Revelation 20:4-6). After the kingdom, then the world is destroyed (II Peter 3:10). And there will be new heavens and a new Earth (Revelation 21).
The reality of 2012 is not the end of the world at that time but at a later date in history. Bible prophecy will be fulfilled.
