Many people including the Mayans are speculating that something catastrophic is going to take place in the year 2012. A specific date of December 21, 2012 has even been set for this event to happen. Many Christians believe that perhaps it is the rapture or the return of Christ that will take place in 2012. We are definitely living in the last days before Christ’s return, so that is why many thought that this may happen in the year 2012.
This will not be a horrible event for all believers who are taken to heaven. It will be a disaster for all those who are left behind on this earth. After Christ returns, there will be a seven year period called the Tribulation. I am glad that I will not be around for this because it is going to be a little bit of hell on earth. If you think things are bad now, just wait until after all the believers in Jesus are gone. The Bible speaks about all of the chaos that will take place.
The Bible tells us that no man knows the day or the hour when Jesus will return to earth. It does tell us that we will know when the end is near. So, I really do not know how anyone can set a date for this to take place.
Some believed that the world would end in 2012. This is a false assumption because the Bible tells us that this is a world with no end. The rapture may definitely take place in 2012, but then there is a seven year Tribulation period after that, so there is no way that the world can end so soon.
Cliff DeYoung and Dale Midkiff play roles in this movie. It is based on some Christian values and some scientific theories. For the Mayans, it is the end of the world and for Scientists, it means polar shifts. For Christians, it may mean the return of Christ, but no one really knows for sure.
