December 21 is the winter solstice.  It always happens around this time of year, so what is so different about it this time?  For the past 2000 years the winter solstice heralds in the season when we celebrate the birth of Christ, a birth that brought with it the promise of life through God’s Son, Jesus, the Prince of Peace.

Yet this year it foreshadows something different.  On October 16, 2012 a 4.6 magnitude earthquake hit Portland, Maine, and was felt all the way to Boston, Massachusetts, followed some three weeks later by a huge storm named Sandy.  Sandy is what was considered by climatologists to be a “perfect storm” that literally desecrated New England and reached deep into the Heartland of America with devastation only to be followed by a second Nor’easter a few days later.

However, this time we have more than just the weather bureau forewarning us of terrible things to come; we have had many various and diverse cultures warning about this particular day (December 21) and this particular year 2012) for centuries.  Here are a few of them.

When asked by His disciples what would be the signs of Jesus’ return (Luke 21:7), He describes the world as follows:  “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars.  On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.  People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26).  (Notice what Jesus warned about in verse 26:  “People will faint from terror.”)

When has the world been more fearful of terrorist attacks and wars than on the scale that it is today?

Signs in the sky?  How about a crescent moon engulfing a lone star?  Is this a sign taken from the heavens?

Nostradamus came from a Jewish family who converted to Catholicism.  His name in Latin means “Our Lady” (Notre Dame/Nostradamus).  His last book, addressed the year 2012 when he predicted enormous devastation caused by a comet.  “In the sky will be seen a great fire dragging a trail of sparks.”  Because of its devastation, the world will be plunged into darkness, allowing anarchists to prevail through the nations of the world while ushering in World War III, thus the earth’s destruction.

Nostradamus continues, “King of terror shall come from the sky.  He will bring to life the King of Mongols.”  This comet will enable China to ascend to worldwide dominance.   “The Great Star will blaze for Seven days.”  Notice that the Bible talks of Daniel’s last week or the seven years of tribulation and the end of the age.  This comet will cause great destruction.  “The Huge dog will howl at night, when the great pontiff will change lands.”  The pontiff, also known as the pope, resides in Rome; therefore, it too will be destroyed.

The lost Mayan civilization also addressed this ominous date where we read in the Wikipedia account:

“There is a strong tradition of ‘world ages’ in Mayan literature, but the record has been distorted, leaving several possibilities open to interpretation.  According to the Popol Vuh, a compilation of the creation accounts of the K’iche’ Maya of the Colonial-era highlands, we are living in the fourth world.  The Popol Vuh describes the gods first creating three failed worlds, followed by a successful fourth world in which humanity was placed.  In the Mayan Long Count Calendar, the previous world ended after 13 b’ak’tuns, or roughly 5,125 years.  The Long Count’s ‘zero date’ was set at a point in the past marking the end of the third world and the beginning of the current one, which corresponds to 11 August 3114 BC in the proleptic Gregorian calendar.  This means that the fourth world will also have reached the end of its 13th b’ak’tun, or Mayan date 13.0.0.0.0, on December 21, 2012.  In 1957, Mayanist and astronomer Maud Worcester Makemson wrote that “the completion of a Great Period of 13 b’ak’tuns would have been of the utmost significance to the Maya.”  In 1966, Michael D. Coe wrote in The Maya that “there is a suggestion … that Armageddon would overtake the degenerate peoples of the world and all creation on the final day of the 13th [b'ak'tun].  Thus … our present universe [would] be annihilated [in December 2012] when the Great Cycle of the Long Count reaches completion.”

Besides the above prophecies or warnings, we may actually be seeing the beginning of the end.  A man named Barack Hussein Obama, whose father was a Muslim (remember the crescent moon and star), could be said to be born under that “heavenly” sign just as a person of Christian parentage could be said to be born under the sign of the Cross.

Other earth-shaking events also occurred two days after Sandy, the November 4th storm, with the re-election of one born under the moon sign.  Perhaps President Obama’s election is a harbinger of the End Times.

Continue to pray and trust God because our and America’s destiny is, after all, in His hands (Romans 13:1).  If this is the end of the age, we can take solace from Jesus who said regarding this time, “But when these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is near!” (Luke 21:28).  As for Israel and the Jews, God promises, “I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you” (Gen 12:3).

    It is amazing what the superstitious minds of religious mankind will fall for

  • Jonathan

    Is this what passes for conservative political thought these days? No wonder we got our asses kicked in the election. Can we please, please please keep religion out of politics? Otherwise, the Republican Party will become extinct. Every time some idiot opened his mouth about rape or abortion, it cost us a million women’s votes. Lets keep this stuff in church, OK ladies?

      Jonathan, if you think the two are not connected, then you are sadly very very misinformed.

      Understand your frustration, however, this is a free nation and just one person’s perspective. Plus, as a woman, abortion paid for by my tax dollars is rape.
      The United States was, even though it is not popular these days, founded upon Christianity.

      • Arizona_Don

        I’m sorry, I must disagree. Abortion paid for with my tax dollars or I should say, “our” tax money is murder. And that’s a fact. Calling this abortion or even a women’s right to chose is because murder seems to harsh and hard for anyone to condone. However, lets call it what it is, taking a life and that is murder.

      George Washington:
      ***“…While just government protects all in their religious rights, true religion affords to government its surest support.”
      In a letter to the Synod of the Reformed Dutch Church of North America Oct. 9, 1789
      ***“And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be attained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”
      In his farewell address, Sept 19, 1796
      Alexander Hamilton:
      ***”The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for among old parchments or musty records. They are written, as with a sunbeam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.”
      John Adams:
      ***“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other”
      ***“Religion always has been and always will govern mankind. Man is constitutionally, essentially and unchangeably a religious animal. Neither philosophers or politicians can ever govern him in any other way.”
      And
      ***“I will not condescend to employ the word Toleration. I assert that unlimited freedom of religion, consistent with morals and property, is essential to the progress of society and the amelioration of the condition of mankind.”
      Both to Francis Van der Kemp, Oct 2, 1818

      Without MORALITY—there will be NO ECONOMY and many could starve anyway thru hyperinflation–Meaning: you cant be fiscally conservative without being CONSERVATIVE morally first

      • Arizona_Don

        Religion, true religion that is, is morality. Without morality there will be no United States of America. No economy or freedoms.

    • Lainie

      Yes, I agree fully. We do deserve a godless society and woke up the day after the election and found we have one. If you want a godless society, we have one!

      Jonathan…what morals was our constitution written from…I do believe the Bible…My religion and my politics will never be seperate….ok Sir?

  • Dean

    If you don’t have religion, then what do you have? I think you have nothing. Everything is linked together. If people were more religious, maybe Romney would be our next president. If we abandon religion, then the republican party might as well disband and let the liberals run amuck and destroy our country. I for one will not stop fighting the good fight. I for one will stand up against those who wish to destroy and stand with those who wish to rebuild our once great country.

    “As for Israel and the Jews, God promises, ‘I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt, and all the peoples on earth will be blessed through you’ (Gen 12:3).” – Actually this sounds VERY reassuring for “the Good Guys” in that they will prevail over the likes of the radical Muslims… as well as those perverted, immoral Liberal/Progressives!

  • ScottLucas11

    Wow — what a tin-foil headcase of a post….

    • http://www.classy-cleaning.com/ Shannon J. Carpenter

      Yes your post sure was…just saying!

        Thank you, Shannon!

          You are welcome…apparently he did not get the fact that it was tongue and cheek…some people have no manners! God Bless!

      I am on a personal crusade against mockery. If you have a point to make, make a rational one. Calling someone else crazy is not a rational point. It’s just bad manners.

    Great story..keep it up.

    Well written and thought provoking article!

  • Cautiously Hopeful

    I’m not keen on predictions from folks with unknown credentials, including the Mayans (Physician, heal thyself.
    And, well, they’re not around) and Nostradamus (tell me, please: HOW would he know these
    things?) However, I do believe the Bible to be the word of God. To that
    end, here’s some food for thought from John Adams: Our Constitution was
    made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to
    the government of any other.

    • Lainie Sloane, CA PoltiChick

      It helps to read the whole article. By the way, Nostradamus based it on Scripture.

    Jesus……Anointed JOHN THE BAPTIST…To Baptize Followers Of Jesus Christ In his Name…. The Jews Are Out Of Luck”! As ‘They’ Are not Baptized In Jesus Christ Name. (The New Testament) The Jews Like To Quote The ‘OLD’ Testament. Jesus Christ Is The Way. The Christian Way.

    I don’t put any stock in Nostradamus’ predictions as people have been “applying” them to their particular times since he wrote them. Nor do I think the Mayans had any idea when the end would come. I do, however, put all my faith in God’s Word especially when Jesus said that no man shall know the hour (of the end)…only the Father knows. So how can we puny humans even dare to think we can predict the end of the world. On the other hand, the end of the world AS WE KNOW IT may be closer than we think. There was never any guarantee that the United States would stand forever. Civilizations have risen and fallen for many thousands of years. We just might be next in line.
