You got it wrong Prototraveler...

you said: [...you don't have 7 years left before 2012 so now the Earth gets to live a little longer to squeeze Israel and the Bible into it...]

7 years is the "complete cycle". 3.5 years is the period of tribulation (or when man wreaks havoc on the world, like we haven't been doing that all along) and 2012 is EXACTLY that 3.5 time period. Think of it as the beginning of the end. The last 3.5 years, from 2012 on will be the time God wreaks havoc on the world. Namely the polarity shift, the earth stops rotating and then rotates the other way, fulfilling prophecy that the Sun will no longer rise in the East, but rise in the West. Tell me, how long do you think it would take for the Earth to stop rotating and start rotating the other way? I say a good six months, but who knows. I do know that the sun baking one side of the Earth for six months will fry people and freeze the dark side of the Earth.

December 21, 2012 could be the day of Rapture that all those who believe, did not take the Antichrist's mark on their hand or forehead and do not worship the Antichrist will be saved from God's wrath during the last 3.5 years.


Alrighty then! You will be needing a pair of these gravitational boots no doubt!

Do you not get that you base this all on pure speculation and conjecture...does the Bible give a date...no it sure doesn't...does the Mayan Calendar explain it's own purpose...no it doesn't.

Do you know how many Christians since the Book of Revelations was written over the centuries have declared this is the end? Only for life to still be going on centuries later.

What you have is a deep seeded pagan and primitive need to find answers for questions you simply have no real answers for. Oooo thunder...Thor is angry...no Tarzan Thor not angry...that's just Chetah banging on this cooking pot I brought from England...why you cook pot Jane, to tenderize, pot hurt Tarzan's teeth.

You attribute all this miraculous fear based nonsense to these supposedly brilliant all seeing all knowing things that can't even say...at 12:42 PM on the 16th of April 2009 United Airlines Flight 1311 departs from Spokane bound for Los Angeles...

Not only can you not prove me wrong, you can't prove you are right...because you are simply adapting something general and vague to insist you are right because your are afraid and can't stand not knowing, and negatively charged insisting that nothing good can happen and trying to force others to manifest that into a shared reality with you, which is just self defeatist and evil.

Me, personally, if I was going to be a God I sure wouldn't traumatize the people I created and supposedly care for by insisting and telling them they are doomed to fail.

Here is a little wisdom for you, if your God created you in his own image, telling you that you are going to fail, it means he is a failure too, and what ever he promised you, or you imagine he promised you, he is as incapable of doing and delivering as you and his followers are incapable of succeeding and achieving.

No offence but it's just a bunch of whiney loosers who lack vision, drive, confidence and belief in themselves, and frankly if you can't get it together I wish he did exist and would get you out of here...you are intent on destroying life and at the very least of letting it be destoyed.

That's a crime and since your God is a fugitive who won't show his face, and a conspirator promising all this death and destruction, and you support him, I think you ought to be charged with aiding and abetting a conspiracy and a fugitive from justice.

Try that one on for size!

I take no offense to anything you say. I find it interesting that the anti-religious folks seemed to be the most aggressive about their stance. I don't feel any pressure to convince you or anyone, nor to justify my beliefs. And if you read my earlier thread, I fully concede that what I had was speculation, so I am doing what my God tells me to do. To watch and be vigilant, for nothing but faith will save us. It doesn't matter what I believe or what you believe, for tomorrow will take care of itself. One could reject gravity all they want, but if they jump from a tree, they will fall.

A wise man once said if you are falling off of a cliff you might as well learn to try to fly.

Christians rarely see their own passive agressive stance because they cocoon themselves in a circular logic that grants them absolution for their combined and individual actions but not freedom to try to learn how to fly whether they are falling off of a cliff or not, but they will be the first to tell you if God had meant for man to fly he would have given you wings.

Contemplating the meaning of life and the universe let alone seriously trying to understand and make sense of it would drive most people to madness without a doubt.

Yet a contrived abdication and an unvalidated substitute belief system that is subject to gross manipulations and distortions is not really the way to go in my humble oppinion.

I have put this question to most devout Christians I know and it goes basically like this...if a mere mortal man, or group of mere mortal men, with no connection to any spirituality or religion were to mimick with the aide of technology and mass media manipulation the events leading up to and surrounding the anti-christ and the Trump and these people caused similiar death and destruction but truly were just opportunistic frauds looking to take advantage of religious prophecies for their own personal gain would you stand against them and fight them...

Nine out of ten will say no...I wouldn't care...I would trust in the Lord...

Now this is where it gets really scary...when I ask the same 10 devout Christians...well if the Muslims made a provocative act of war aimed at the Christian west would you fight them...the same 9 out of 10 who said no to the first scenario will say yes to this second scenario...you bet we would fight them...

I have a right to aggressively fight for my freedoms and survival and frankly I find it disgustingly disturbing that Christians would in fact lie down not because they are pacifists but because they are so desperate to validate their belief system in what is in essence their only clearly defined shot to validate it through their own death through their mass murder by their God called the Trump.

If your God is really talking to you, which we both know he isn't, but is just your desire to validate your own existence and insecure place in a Universe you do not want to challenge yourself to fully comprehend or productively and fully contribute too...ask him hey God why is it you set us all up to fail and why is it I have to accept being murdered to ever get to meet you and why did you create such a screwed up system that you have clearly forbidden us to fix?

Let me know if you get an answer because I would love to hear it...pure faith alone...is better defined as pure ignorance and pure wishful thinking.

What you are wishing for is the death and destruction of billions of human beings simply to prove to yourself that being so foolish and ignorant to take something so cruel and malignant on faith was the right personal choice...

Sadly that is all too Christian and anyone with a questioning and logical mind would see there is not one shred of logic in that.

Simply put Christians invite the reign of a despoitc figure mythically known as the Anti-Christ to validate their own belief system which believes that is the pathway to finally getting to actually see, and talk to a God that has already exposed them to practically every evil and hardship one can imagine through his abandonment and neglect...

And you call me aggressive?

Wow!

I think I understand where you are coming from, But I was the one who started this post and I am not religious, Personally I believe that Jesus was a buddhist.
Now that does not make me a buddhist either.
But because I do not believe in gravity does not mean that gravity does not exist, all it means is that I have a different idea on what is holding me on the earth.

I made the statement that from what I see around me, this includes reading on these forums, watching the world around me and looking at the world and the people in it.

You used gravity before saying about learning to fly, A bird knows nothing about gravity, yet it flies with the aid of it, you don't always have to know everything about a subject in order to see a pattern forming.

Throughout history man has wanted to know what will happen tomorrow, it helped him learn when to plant crops and when to harvest, it wasn't a prediction, but rather a patern that was seen.

we have a pattern forming here, a pattern from peoples behaviour, a pattern of the planet and also a pattern of cycles.

Truth is that some people where better at reading patterns and the mayans may have in fact been one of these people.
The authors of the bible once again may have seen patterns forming, don't look literal, but rather symbolic.

What ever the reason, there does appear to be a group of people who have used this belief for their own advantage and I think it is them who are trying to fulfill their own prophecy and not nessicarily us.

Yes my friend I do know you started the thread. I understand why you started the thread too. You have a theory, a theory you feel strongly about...because as you mulled it over in your mind it gave you a rush of exhiliration...opened the door to possibilities you could take some comfort in accepting and adopting, and on the chance you are right you want to share it with other people, and on the chance you are wrong, you would like other people to either convince you that you are wrong about being wrong, and are right, or convince you that you wrong in a way that allows you some closure and justification in abandoning your theory...

Got it and I empathize.

I don't mean to be disrespectful to anyone but I hate to see people disrespect themselves...

You are in fact religious but you are the guy at the roulette table trying to wait for the ball to slow down a bit as it circles the wheel looking for that feeling and added edge of what darn religion is right...the Jews? the Catholics? The Muslims...hey the Mormons...wait could be the Buddists...or it could be none of them...

Now here is what you don't get...this whole darn planet is being psyched out right now on one bummer of a trip...world's going to end, we are all going to die, the economy is never going to get better, I am never going to be happy again, I am always going to be scared from now on...it's not much longer I can feel it coming.

Have you ever heard of the power of positive thinking?

Do you actually understand you manifest your own reality through your thoughts? Do you understand the more people are thinking the same thing the more powerful the manifestation is...

Do you have any clue at all my friend that you are God!

That we are all kindred spirits sharing a universal shared soul and the more of those factions that think along the same lines towards a certain outcome the more of that shared soul's energy and power is placed into manifesting it.

You are whether you choose to be in denial about it or not, along with many other human beings actively working for, towards and wishing for your own suicide.

You are simply looking to find a palpable way to resign yourself to that metamorphis and deny the responsibility of your own individual power to manifest something else simply because you see the odds of succeeding to stacked against you.

You see that because very evil and greedy men want you to see that, to imagine that, to manifest what they want to have manifested for their enrichment and power and you are falling right in to it.

Now so you understand where I am coming from...if I was sentenced to death tomorrow, and placed in front of a firing squad, had a hood placed over my head, a lit ciggarette stuck in my mouth while the head executioner and commander of the detail was shouting ready...aim...

I would be sitting there thinking...well hey...this is no big deal...I know I am going to get out of this somehow...now maybe right at that moment an eclipse of the sun might happen, or a space ship might appear over head, or a unicorn might come galloping up...or all of a sudden I hear Happy Birthday bet you never thought you would have a party like this as my hood is yanked off to reveal a lit cake with candles being held up in front of me...

Regardless of what really did happen or would happen I sure wouldn't be wishing for a bad outcome even then...

Please, for your own sake...be honest...why are you?

Don't be a pawn...be a swan...

I personally think something is going to happen in June this year and if not then im wrong


I do think that there is going to be a global peace very shortly and it may well be in 2012. I also agree that it will be false.



Guys I truly do think that June 12th, 2009 (the digital to analog coversion) is nothing to think lightly of) a ATS friend brought to my attention that when the government starts "hand out coupons" for the conversion, why would they care about our cable connection??? SOMETHING is going on here....

I had a prophetic dream that on 01,01,2013 I was at a Dairy Queen, having a big Chocolate Shake, outside, with my dog and reading a newspaper article about all of the gullible people who ran to the mountains or below the equator and the money and jobs they left behind helped to fuel the new economy. Love it.

People have been predicting the end of the world for a long long long time, but it hasn't happened yet, BUT, things do occasionally occur that change everything. In 1893 when Tesla introduced to the world the ability to generate electricity at the Chicago World's Fair, the world changed, or at least it changed very dramatically for mankind. When John Locke wrote his concepts of on the rights of man and the balance of power in government, the world changed. These things do happen. When Berners-lee wrote the code for the world wide web, the world changed, and for some crazy reason I keep thinking it is going to happen again this summer.

Well, that would be all well and good if God thought that life on Earth is what it is ALL about.... but Christians believe it is not. I do not, nor do other Christians who believe in the end times prophesy want billions of people to die. We just believe that there are catastrophes on Earth that are coming that will make it so.

I tell you this, my body, after I am dead and gone is nothing but fertilizer, because my soul will have moved onto somewhere else. That is the REAL tragedy. If one is all consumed with their life on Earth, then they will do everything they can do to safe guard that body, while spending little to no attention to the real value you hold... and that is your heart and soul inside. You know people like to point to cruelty of Christians over the years (i.e. inquisition or pedophile Preachers) and that is fine, but I say those Christians have been led astray and are not walking in the way of Christ so they are no Christian of mine. No, I will choose the one whose message is the one of PEACE and LOVE. That man was more courageous and compassionate that a million modern day saints put together and my desire to meet him one day doesn't mean I wish other to not.

Your allusion to me and other Christians naively going down in flames to prove in our own head that we were right all along is Pride. Pride is a vice we all deal with... on this very site. We wish to gain the attention and acceptance of others here. But in the end, it really doesn't matter what I think or you think, it doesn't matter if you want to fight against an enemy or that I don't, the Earth will do what the Earth will do.

Luke 12:22
“For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. 23 “For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 “Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds! 25 “And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life’s span? 26 “If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters?

This was your most heart felt and thought provoking post thus far. Keep em coming. Maybe it was because you were responding to the more sensible poster and not a nut job religious Jesus freak like me, but I liked it none the less.

Let me be clear, I am not wishing for a bad outcome. I am simply observing and settling it in my heart about where my priorities are. Let me ask you this. What does the man do, who is in free fall, when his parachute does not open? He KNOWS what is coming. Does him acknowledging that constitute "negative" thinking in your book? Will the power of his positive thinking make his parachute open? No it will not.

Christians are not suicidal and life isn't a game to us either. We think of life on Earth as the means to learn how to get closer to God. And you can't just hear how to do it to get there, you have to live it and experience it first hand to get there. So why would I want my life on Earth cut short if my learned cumulative experiences here teach me how to love and appreciate God. If you and I were standing at the base of Mount Everest and I pointed up and said the apex is where you will find God, well how does one get there? I could teach you all the mountaineering skills on Earth, but it won't get you one step closer to the apex unless you start climbing.

Why is it I get the impression that you are being rather condecending towards people who believe somewhat different that yourself?

Now I have not disrespected myself or any other forum user, we all have minds and with those minds we can look at theories and mull them over and through time evolve that theory.
No one theory from man is correct, but many together can come close.

If you mean religious to the point of believing in a spiritual entity, well I may come under the heading of religious, although I do believe we are all God, when we look into a mirror we see our maker, we make ourselves so in essence we are created in our own image by ourselves, we are our own harshest critic as well as being there with you your entire journey.

Now possitive thinking, I am possitive, the world will not end, eventually our physical bodies do die and we may discover that we do not in fact need an economy in the emerging world.
Is that possitive enough?

reality, you claim I am religious yet you then put forward your own belief of people thinking the same thing the more powerful the manifestation is..,
isn't that just speculation just as my own theory is?

Now I really think you have me wrong, I do not wish for the easy option, I am not of the belief of being one who is going to be raptured either, we all have our roles which either by design or by our own thoughts is the journey we must all take.

This line is the one which stood out the most

Please, for your own sake...be honest...why are you?

for the last 25 years I have been asking that very question, "Why am I?"
And up until now you are the only person beside myself who I have heard ask that question.
That is a question that will always be with me, I know I cannot change the past, I have no crystal ball and cannot predict the future, the only thing I know is the "NOW"

I do not waste my time worrying about the future, but during my life, it has come to be as I saw it would be, there are of course small differences, but the things I had seen from my youth are all coming about.
Now there is some more I know that is in store for what I have to do but the timing of that is unknown, I just know it is during my lifetime and it is while I am still young and strong.
currently I am 43 and I get the impression it will be before I am 50, the strongest pull I get is towards 46 which is a number known to me and has more meaning to me but to no one else.

I understand where you are coming from, you don't believe people should be needlesly worried about events which you believe will not come about, but for some of us who have asked Why am I?
we have the answer we where looking for and ony pass on the theory for those who want to listen, many will read this and get the meaning wrong, yet hopefully a few will see the time as right for now.

OP I agree that these events seem to be interconnected by a time line. It really makes perfect sense to me. I am a christian & I agree with scott_gui views on what is gods plan. It is all about getting closer to god, because the more you understand him the more comfort & love you feel from him.

Now, last summer when I read Revelations i came to the conclusion (which some Christians MISS) that many Christians will HAVE to be persecuted in order to be saved from the Mark of the Beast & going to eternal darkness. When I first figured that out for myself I didnt like it at all (so for those who think us Christians want to DIE?---No)
I have 2 beautiful children & loving husband & am about to enter a very rewarding Career. BUT, I know that whatever god has planned for me is GREATER than I could ever imagine.

I will also add that many Increasingly peculiar things have been happening to me. For example, Ive had prophetic dreams when I was younger but couldnt handle them or want them so they became suppressed. Eventually as I got older they came back & even saved my life once.
Now, for the past 2 years they have been coming more Vivid with more detail & there occurring Sooner than before. Lately even when I have them--that Same day I get a Confirmation from God by the people around me. If your wondering what I mean by "Confirmation," just understand thats how GOD TRULY WORKS. Its a beautiful thing really when it happens because you know its for you or someone you know.

I have seen Glimpes of the future from my dreams...and I have NO control over them whatsoever. It wasnt until this past year that Ive finally been able to EXCEPT them as apart of WHO I AM. and Im SURE that it will come in handy & Save my life again both spiritual & physical.

The future Ive seen is very complex but like a puzzle I am able to put the pieces together to make a picture. I have learned that theirs no way to Deny them so I better except them for what they are & Embrace them.

I believe somewhere in the bible it states that when it gets "Closer" to the end-times the Young & Old will have Visions & Dreams of Visions. So it makes sense why so many other people are also seeing similar dreams & visions.

Here is a dream I had a few weeks ago that came true that same day, if any one is interested or want to know more let me know.

I fully agree with something is going to happen, and it may start this summer. We all need to realize there may even be a shortage on food this year. If they close down all the borders and imports and exports that will effect us alot. There will be food shortages, gas rationing, and much more.
Then we have to realize on top of all of that folks will be getting sick from the flu.

My mom always use to say its best to prepare for the worst if it comes you were ready, if it doesnt at least you wont have to shop for awhile. You may even save some cash by doing that.

By the looks were better off if we do prepare for the worst.

As for the religion part of this, well to each his own. I dont go to church but I believe in a higher power. I believe there is a God. And that when we die we go to heaven. But I dont push those beliefs on anyone nor do I tell them how they should believe, so to those that dont believe in God. Please dont make us look like idiots just because you dont believe in God or the Bible.

Do I believe in the Bible? Some of it, but not all of it. I have my reasons. But I do read it. Do I believe in the end of the world as we know it? I sure do.

All life has a begining and an end. Why wouldnt our world have an end? It may not be destroyed completely, but I am sure it wont ever be the same again.

When you add up all the things happening right now in this world, and I am sure by the end of summer there will be alot more, it starts sounding more and more like Revelations.

Many folks are even seeing more things in dreams, I believe this is Gods way of telling us something Big is about to happen.

If bible prophecy has truth and this event coincides with 2012 then we should being seeing the 2 witnesses appear shortly.




They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. 3And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.





7Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them.

I love that sackcloth reference. Check out this scripture reference from the Old Testament talking about Jerusalem. It fits right into the end of times story... like history repeats itself.

Jeremiah 6
25 Do not go out to the fields
or walk on the roads,
for the enemy has a sword,
and there is terror on every side.

26 O my people, put on sackcloth
and roll in ashes;
mourn with bitter wailing
as for an only son,
for suddenly the destroyer
will come upon us.

Mr. Scott_gui...for someone who is Christian you sure aren't very accepting of people who are not a 'nut job' like yourself.

'but I say those Christians have been led astray and are not walking in the way of Christ so they are no Christian of mine'

You have a very developed sense of prejudice and one of very little forgiving. I, myself, am not of your faith yet I have more of a 'Christian' attitude than yourself. I take it, it doesn't matter what you do on this earth because you will be forgiven.

Regardless if the world is going to end when you say it will or not...does it really matter? You may get hit by a car tomorrow - I may get struck by your Lord's lightening. What matters is that we live our lives with respect, honesty and love. Isn't that what it's about?

I am reading a 'non-fiction' book about a man who meets the spirits who created us. I get the impression from this book that those spirits tell him that they did not create us to worship them, but to love each other. Interesting though if you ask a Christian their views - they say the man spoke to God and that we should love him.

I believe we should focus more on each other and less on the revelations of the bible.

I agree with Scott_gui...why obsess about it? I have questions for those that are sure on the date of 'the world ending'.

If you are so sure, have you prepared mentally and physically for that day...accepted your fate - if not, then your belief of this end must not be as real as you think it is.

If you believe in the world ending, have you changed the way you live? If you have because of 'endings' then isn't that just as wrong as living your life 'incorrectly' according to your god? Changing because of fear of the end.

I don't believe that the 'world will end' in our lifetime..besides it doesn't matter. I love my children, spouse and family. I am kind and caring to the best of my ability - just because I don't believe in your god, doesn't mean I won't be saved. It means that I will know that when MY world ends, I will have a very fulfilled life...and will be enjoying my afterlife

I have never agreed with the end of the world scenario myself, even without man the planet would continue.

although I see that many people will survive through the end times as we know it, many unfortunately will not,
A select type of people will continue, those who have a similar belief system as well as an understanding of what is happening.
Those people will usher in the new world, gone will be money and goverments, people all willing to help others, not for how it makes them look in the eyes of others, but because it is the right thing to do.
