2012, 2060, Now or Forever, Part 1

If prophecies by Mayan Indians, Hopi Indians, the prophet Nostradamus, and other occult, religious, quasi-scientific and cultural beliefs around the world are correct––normal activity on this Earth will be over in two years and a few days. Precisely on December 21, 2012.  Apparently some in Hollywood believe the date to be authentic, as a blockbuster film showing the complete annihilation of this planet was released recently with the title “2012.”  Those who study astrology point out that the date happens to be the time of the winter solstice, which in that particular year will significantly line up with the Milky Way’s equator.

 A very sophisticated people for their time, the Mayans built seemingly perfect calendar systems based on their astute knowledge of star systems, indicating that the Grand Cycle of the earth will end on that 2012 date.  While scientists and others debunk the Mayan prophecy, others claim that the Mayans were instructed about these dates from alien visitors.  (See pic of Mayan temple)

 But then, noted British scholar, Isaac Newton, along with Albert Einstein, considered one of two of the greatest scientists who ever lived, insists that the Earth, as we know it, will not be destroyed until 2060.  A devout Christian with rather unorthodox beliefs, Newton based his calculations on very close study of The Bible, particularly the numbers involved in the construction of Solomon’s Temple.  According to an article in Wikipedia, “Newton believed that the temple was designed by King Solomon with privileged eyes and divine guidance. To Newton, the geometry of the temple represented more than a mathematical blueprint, it also provided a time-frame chronology of Hebrew history.”
 The History Channel’s end-of-the earth studies point out that Newton left his findings about Earth’s end with families that were wealthy enough to conceal them from church officials.  At that time, such conclusions would have been banned as heresy, which was punishable by death. The article adds:  “Newton felt that just as the writings of ancient philosophers, scholars, and Biblical figures contained within them unknown sacred wisdom, the same was true of their architecture.” He wrote that these men hid what they knew “in a complex code of symbolic and mathematical language that, when deciphered, would reveal an unknown knowledge of how nature works.”  From his study of these phenomena Newton concluded that the Earth would suffer a colossal end in 2060.

 However, The Lord Jesus Christ instructs Christians (including Newton), “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only (Matthew 24: 36).”  (See also Matthew 24: 42, 50; Mark 13: 32).  However, Jesus did discuss several signs that would indicate Earth’s ending.  As believers prepare for the holidays with wholesale Christian gifts, they should study those many signs. Some will be discussed in future blogs at this site.
