We can’t end 2012 without addressing the End of the World.
If the re-eclection of Obama didn’t cause the heavens to fall from their place perhaps the fiscal cliff will.
It appears the “Church” has also abandoned their faith in the Mayan Calendar predictions as most of those Bible “scholars” who piggy backed off the Mayan’s false prophecies published their books and dvd’s in 2010, well ahead of the impending date so as to capitalize without looking silly.

The US, the very same US that was “Hanging by a shred!” is still very much in power (for now), the economy is on life support but has been for a few decades, shhh, everyone thinks black Friday and cyber Monday saved us.
So, what happens when the world continues to perpetuate itself? Do you who counted on not existing fall into a deep depression? Were you counting on being a crispy speck of dust? Are your converse still tied to your feet and your Ipad still pumping out the latest pins? I mean does the whole world implode because it didn’t explode? Does your faith waver? Do you doubt God’s word because the preacher man told you not to buy green bananas or renew your subscription to Runner’s World? Can your faith stand?
Did you make plans for 2013? Some people literally do not live for the future because each and every day is filled with an all consuming preoccupation with “leaving.” I beg you to put your faith, hope and trust in the Lord and to focus on what His word really says and although any day here could be your last, live!
There is a natural desire for life to perpetuate itself. Most people, and animals as well, seek to live and try to sustain life. Hence, procreation. There’s no greater oxymoron to me than the Pro-lifer who is adamant about saving the unborn and in the same breath speaks of blowing up people in other countries (for their own self-preservation) knowing that should God take them they’d go to heaven as believers in Christ Jesus, but those in the other countries the same could not be said. But, I digress. There have been many false teachers, false prophesies out there for a very long time. Here are but a few of those failed pieces of propaganda, for those who like vintage art: (Click on images to enlarge)
The End of the World will come, eventually. Don’t worry, if you want to be here that bad to see it you may get your wish. There are people who truly are seeing and understanding the last day of their loved ones here on earth. There is real loss out there, real pain, and you who are healthy and whom grace has abound in your life should be grateful and stop pining and whining for thee last day. Be ready, to live for Christ. Have the gospel on your lips.
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.” Galatians 2:20
“According to my earnest expectation and my hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but that with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether it be by life, or by death. 21 For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. 22 But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. 23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: 24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith; 26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again. 27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; 28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. 29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake; 30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.” Philippians 1:20-30
For those of you reading this post because December 21, 2012 is near I am including this full length video. I DO NOT endorse these people on this video, I’m posting it to illustrate to you that these false preachers have been saying “The End is Near” for a long time. In the Eighties it was the Ozone Layer that was going to suck us out of the earth, today it’s Climate Change, Solar Flares and Mayan Aliens. There will be an END, no doubt, but there is a clear and definitive path that we are on and ‘the end is not yet.’ Your end may be near, you may die being hit by a car, you may lose someone close to you and their end will have come, we all who are alive are destined to die. I will die and I know where I’m going to go, hence no anxiety over it, but I rather live as long as I can and do what God has called me to do on this earth for as long as He will allow me.
Here’s the Saturday Night Feature Presentation of a Retro End of Days movie, these old guys are still around selling the same can of doomsday in a new package…
