Mayan End of the World
Time for New Agers to Eat Crow
When the Jehovah's Witness 'Jesus' did not physically appear in 1914 as the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society prophesied, they scrambled to rearrange their theology and declared that He must have appeared invisibly. When the Seventh-Day Adventist 'Jesus' did not appear and the world end in 1844 as they had prophesied, they scrambled to rearrange their theology and decided that in 1844 Christ had rather entered the Holy of Holies in the Heavenly Sanctuary. When the Mormon 'Jesus' did not return on or before 14 February 1891 (Valentines' Day) as Joseph Smith, Jr. had prophesied, they scrambled to rearrange their theology and declared that He had, in fact, returned in 1891 but in one of their secretive temples, but not publically. I won't even begin to list all the false prophecies made by Protestants (mostly Pentecostals and charismatics) - and they're still being churned out - about the end of the world and the Second Coming because there are just too many of them.
Today's it's the New Agers' turn, along with those foolish enough to believe all the hype, to eat crow even though the Mayan prophecy actually concerned the year 2011 and not 2012 and was not about literal destruction but a transformation of society. But we'll be generous and for the sake of argument assume that 'today's the day'.
There has been all kind of talk about an alien invasions, one world dictatorship being proclaimed, destruction by Nibiru or Planet X (which for a while deceived quite a lot of us, I have to admit), and so on, but the more astute amongst the New Agers are claiming that what's actually going to happen is that there is going to be an 'spiritual ascension' as man spiritually evolves to a new, higher level. Some new agers are going to become a spiritual master race, it would seem, leaving the rest of us all behind. There won't be a shred of evidence, of course, just as there wasn't when the Watchtower Jesus supposedly returned invisibly in 1914, the Adventist Jesus entered the heavenly sanctuary in 1844, or the Mormon Jesus dropped by an LDS temple on Valentine's Day in 1891. But there will still be those who believe. There were even some charismatics who believed the mythical 'Rapture' would happen today, adapting this modern doctrine by claiming UFO's would do the transportation job. The only 'rapturing' that's actually going on is the wicked worldwide trafficking of children by CPS and in many cases their vile pedophile rings.
Finally - as I would hate to leave the atheist utopians out of this picture - there are those Marxists who believe we are all evolving into a Socialist Paradise. Indeed, on the inside cover of my Atlas zur Geschichte, an historical atlas produced by the communist régime of East Germany (DDR), there is a diagram of a spiral unfolding from feudalism into capitalism into socialism and finally pure communism. Not only is the DDR defunct, along with every European communist régime, but the New Europe (and New America) is heading right back into feudalism.
The emet (truth) is, no one knows when Yah'shua (Jesus) is returning, not even Yah'shua (Jesus) Himself, so do you really think Yahweh would tell a mortal without telling His Son? The instructions we have been given are specific:
Be prepared for a return of Messiah every day and get on with business as usual. In the meantime the world is changing, but not apocalyptically...yet.
"But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the malakim (angels in heaven), nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and pray; for you do not know when the time is. It is like a man going to a far country, who left his house and gave authority to his servants, and to each his work, and commanded the doorkeeper to watch. Watch therefore, for you do not know when the master of the house is coming -- in the evening, at midnight, at the crowing of the rooster, or in the morning -- lest, coming suddenly, he find you sleeping. And what I say to you, I say to all: Watch!" (Mark 13:32-37, NKJV)
