Yep, the end sure is near. When 2012 rolls on into 2013 the end of all this "end of days" bull will end. Then we'll see another "end of days" scare pop up and that'll be the new thing. And it continues like this until the world really ends when no one expects it.

I agree. If this whole 12/21/12 doesn't happen, it will be 4/10/13 or 9/23/13 and so on....

I think most people can't wait for the world to end so they follow these crazy beliefs!

but the whole 3 days of darkness did scare me just a bit>_<

If we are talking about a character in a book then we should look to that book for information about that character, not make up our own story and somehow pretend that that is what the book is telling us so we can then use it as an argument, this is what's called creating a straw man argument, you set up your own straw man to attack. Nowhere in the bible are we informed that Satan is doing God's work, if that is what you take from the story it is just because you don't WANT to know the real story, so you don't investigate if what you say actually makes any sense if you study the books that form the bible (usually it's because you've got the idea from somewhere else, not from a personal study of the bible).

That is what I can't grasp about religion.

They demonize Satan and humans declare him the enemy of God, yet Satan plays a huge role in the bible.


No need to bring religion into this, let's just stick to the bible for our information regarding Satan, since that's where he was first mentioned to the world (unlike some pieces of misinformation that would like you to think otherwise).

It is humans who have turned him into an excuse for all our "evil" deeds.



It's true that Satan is mentioned a lot as the cause for many problems in the world in the bible, as well as certain events, but the bible clearly tells us that he's NOT doing his job (if you consider his job being the good angel that he was when God first created him). You're still stuck on the argument that God planned all this from the start exactly the way it has turned out. That is not how God's foreknowledge of events works (omniscience), he needs to choose to look at a particular future (in my imagination he does this through analyzing details, patterns, then he can make a projection more detailed than anyone else, but he has to CHOOSE to do this, if he chooses to watch the 'movie' live instead before skipping to the end, he doesn't know what's going to happen (free will comes into play here). This view is based on what the bible tells us, not my own made up story (or by any religion, I could give you the bible verses that support it, if I thought you cared).

"No Satan = no bible", probably yes, but what if's don't matter, Satan is here, he needs to be considered in our worldview and how we look at information that comes our way (which is why we're getting help from God, in literary form so we can verify its origin and see if anyone made any changes to the message and other reasons that help with authenticity, being able to trust that the message is indeed from God, and more reasons why it HAD to be in literary form), otherwise you're just going to run into one surprise after the other, were you surprised when you first saw the videos of the Bohemian Grove made by Alex Jones? I wasn't. Were you surprised that Obama didn't close Guantanamo Bay? That it took so long for him to rename all the soldiers in Iraq to private security personnel, ambassadors and attachees, and military advisors and move the rest over to other countries like Afghanistan so people would think he was at least trying to keep his promise to end the war in Iraq?

EDIT: side thought, who needs soldiers if you can make the local population so desperate and poor that you can actually get them to put their lives on the line for your occupation force consisting of other desperate poor people risking their lives for meagre wages that actually start to look good to these people.

next up is the UN going after religion (attacking/destroying).

Just so you don't have to be surprised, you can find it in Revelation chapter 17. False religion is the whore referred to as Babylon the Great and the UN is the beast she is riding. I will spare you any further details. You can't miss the event (you can already see the anti-religion propaganda coming from the UN actually if you keep an eye on them, like some of us have been doing for decades).

I was going to say it is nothing but a new beginning. It seems I am not alone with that train of thought. Even if there is a time of great changes, the old will make way for the new.

We just have to decide what the new actually is. Will we look back and try to find a solution in the past that obviously doesn't work? Or will we find a better way to affect more people positively?

I hope I will see the collapse of systems that flat out don't work. Whats the point in keeping these practices going on as business as usual, when the benefits are overshadowed by the costs?


The benefits are overshadowed by the costs because the whole economic system does not work anymore. Prices rise constantly, half of the world (or more) cannot afford many things anymore.
I believe current economic systems will collapse, together with other social values and even religions.

Followed this for a while now. So if "the end is near" and "if it's Dec 21 '12", when will TPTB start to run and hide in their apparent underground bunkers. Are there "watchers" from the conspiracy theorists that are tailing them to let all of us plebs know that things are hotting up? My take, there will be nothing more than people taking off to their respective families for xmas celebrations

I have read the bible and from my understanding people interpret the text in many different ways. I have read many other "religious" text as well, because I find truth scattered in many places.




it is just because you don't WANT to know the real story


You are basing your "truth" off of your interpretation of the text. In essence you are claiming you have the real story figured out 100% if I don't agree with your "real story" I am wrong in your eyes.




usually it's because you've got the idea from somewhere else, not from a personal study of the bible


So your study of the bible and satan started from a point where nobody had influenced you view of the events? For that to happen you would have had to be locked inside a room with only you and the bible before you had ever heard of anything called a "bible".

I have studied text from the Sumerian cultures through to the Bhagavad gita and the Bible was one of those text. I have found them all in line to what we could consider "truth" or for the individual to come to an understanding of truth for them self.

For instance "my" view of the bible and satan would be much different then yours. That does not mean I have simply swallowed someone else version of the truth. Perhaps you have, perhaps you haven't, I will not make such a judgement because I do not know you well enough to throw assumptions like that in your direction. If I do, often times I ask myself why I projected such things onto someone else.


From the start I happen to see the Garden of Eden as a very beautiful "prison" of sorts. Yea it was beautiful and a paradise, but without any polarity of choice "good or bad" we would never evolve on a spiritual level. No growth,

Even more how could we appreciate the beautiful garden if we never experienced anything but perfect bliss? The garden would mean nothing to us really without some experience of an opposite.




Nowhere in the bible are we informed that Satan is doing God's work, if that is what you take from the story it is just because you don't WANT to know the real story, so you don't investigate if what you say actually makes any sense


In short you are saying one should not use their brain while reading the bible. Who tested Jesus, or Job?

You do not seem to investigate if what you say make any sense.

In the beginning of the book of Job, God basically throws a board meeting with the archangels.

Satan being one of them.

He and God have a civil discussion, and God agrees Job should be tested to see if he is worthy. God sends Satan off to test Job. Satan doesn't argue, he does his "Job".

That is one example.

The only place he is referred to as evil is in Revelations, and is then equated to the snake in Genesis.

So your right

Nowhere in the bible are we informed that Satan is doing God's work

But thankfully "God" gave us a brain so we could think for ourself instead of blindly following a book. A book that was created by picking and choosing what text "they" wanted to include.

ive come a long way in terms of "2012" ive gone from thinking it will be the end, to now realizing its just another day. but doomsday aside, i do feel like something has to give, the way we live seems so unnatural, seems so out of balance, and everyday i feel like the pressures building up and has to release. personally i feel its something to do with the "elite" losing control or being exposed, like were all in chains and something will cause us to realize we dont need to be in chains anymore. but even though alot of people say "i have a weird feeling" i truly do have a weird feeling about 2012, not so much dec21st, but the days, weeks, year to follow, as though dec 21st is the big distraction, and the real show happens shortly after. good thread!

And the formation of the state of Israel (not long after the bomb), in 1948. And the Mayan calendar
“11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a One World Government with its own independent armed forces.”

Look at the world and it is becoming more pagan.WRITE down the words of the prophecy because the end is near. The world is splitting apart faster than an atom in a nuclear reactor. Why does everything in the newspapers, look like the exact texts of bible prophecy over two thousand years ago. A New religion. The want to destroy religion to make way for a new religion, that is the secret behind this.

This election was probably the last one that most people who have courage to fight against the enslavement, will really pay attention to, because we are now in a chorus of the end of days. For three days Saul lived in darkness, until his sight was restored by the laying on of hands by Ananias.

This world has already ended as far as humanity and its hopes and dreams go. I am sorry geez,

The world continues its nightmare march toward something. More wear and tear (and suffering)

Some people still need suffering, It can be a great teacher, Maybe once humanity learns its lessons and evolves past petty differences, we will quit needing a catalyst for change. Until then instead of losing hope at the world around us realize that some still need this.

Not the end brother... just the beginning! And a glorious beginning it will be.


So far no new beginning. Although, it is still early. I wonder when the change will begin. Have you changed your mind about anything yet or still think something is going to happen?

I'm glad you ended that comment the way you did cause as I was reading I was afraid you were going to fall into that prepared trap of thinking just because there have been so many people making wrong predictions that that somehow makes Armageddon go away. Armageddon will still happen, but just as the bible says it, like a thief in the night, everyone who is sleeping will be surprised. And faulty predictions is making a big contribution to putting people back to sleep (like a false alarm that wakes you up in the middle of the night a couple of times in a row, after a while, you'll just think it's another false alarm).

BTW, Armageddon won't end the world but only end this system of things (the political structures and replace it with a theocratic style government ruled by Jesus as King and Lord under his father Jehovah as God and supreme ruler of the universe). I know many who read this, even when they do believe in God and the bible still have difficulty seeing what to me has become so obvious but you have to try to realize this is because you have missing information because you're being led around in circles by the so-called truth movements out there that just won't give you the information that you vitally need to see the bigger picture. You can start with Sir Isaac Newton's secret notes about the Trinity to remedy that situation.

That's what I mean with making up your own story. Try reading it again without any bias. Pay close attention to who says what. There's no sending involved at all.

This is what I like to call a surface-argument. (no you probably won't find that word anywhere on wikipedia with a single description, I made it up myself). It floats at the surface of logic and reason. It hasn't been probed deeper by the one using it, it reminds me of when I was a kid and kids would try to trump eachother with a bigger number and kept doing that for a while.

Now i could jump in again and say "your number +1" to settle the argument but I still feel the same way as I felt back then, one of the ones arguing should be able to come up with that one themselves.

A clue considering this particular argument, the jews recognize only half of the bible as being from God and they have done so generation after generation before the word "canon" was in use.

The New World Order... ahh what can I say about it? Every single town that I drive through is like another Sodom and Gommorah.. But everywhere I go, literally within minutes I can feel the apocalypse behind me.

Oh Drats. That's Good maybe the oxycotin presciption will help the pain of
And so I get antsy when churches are places now for confused people, the bible says that God does not cause (Probably not the Church of God of prophecy or Harold Camping who has been wrong about the world ending about three times now.)
