Mexico's tourism agency expects to draw 52 million visitors by December 21, 2012 as people from all over the world will travel to the Yucatan Peninsula in the Mayan Indian region of Mexico to visit the villages of the ancient Mayan Indians who had a talent for astronomy and producing calendars.

The Mayan Indians were known for their amazing ability to read the stars at a time when there were no telescopes and without computers to set in place calendars still available today predicting the end of the world.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The Mayan calendar calls for the end of the world December 21, 2012 which contradicts the Bible that reveals to all who will read it when the end of the world will come according to Bible prophecy.

For several years there has been talk of the end of the world on December 21, 2012 because the Mayan Indian calendar runs out on that date. These Indians, living on the Yucatan Peninsula, were able without telescopes and computers to configure very distinct calendars. The doomsday theories stem from a stone tablet discovered in that location which describes the return of a Mayan Indian god and the end of the world on December 21, 2012.

Any student of Bible prophecy could refute these end of the world theories by explaining the end of times scenario that can be found in Bible prophecy. The biblical book of Revelation, chapters 4-19, predicts a time of great judgment on the earth among earth dwellers that will be preceded by the Rapture when Christians go to Heaven at the call of Jesus Christ, Revelation 4:1 and I Corinthians 15:51-53. At the end of these seven years, Jesus Christ returns to the earth, Revelation 19:11-16 and Zechariah 14:4. This return of the Messiah will bring in the 1,000 year Millennial Kingdom here on the earth, Revelation 20:1-6 and then the end of the world when the heavens and the earth will be burned up completely, Revelation 20:11 and II Peter 3:10.

The end of the world is at least 1,007 years into the future. Bible prophecy will indeed be fulfilled.
