More people are concerned about 2012 than the media normally highlights:

May 2, 2012…

One in 10 people around the world, including nine per cent of Canadians, may be readying their bucket list this year, saying they believe the “end of the world” will come at the end of 2012, according to the results of a global survey.

China topped the list of end-times believers at 20 per cent, followed by several countries at 13 per cent, including Mexico, Turkey and the U.S…

Turkey and the U.S. (22 per cent) reported the highest numbers of those who agreed that the world is coming to an end during their lifetime, followed by South Africa (21 per cent), Argentina, Mexico and Indonesia (19 per cent).

Part of the global anxiety is rooted in superstitions surrounding the Mayan calendar, which was used by the ancient Mayan civilization and ends in December 2012.

Some believe this marks the end times, while some experts have said it refers to the end of an era in the calendar, not an apocalypse.  http://www.canada.com/life/Nine+cent+Canadians+world+will+2012/6549401/story.html

(Reuters) – – Nearly 15 percent of people worldwide believe the world will end during their lifetime and 10 percent think the Mayan calendar could signify it will happen in 2012, according to a new poll.

The end of the Mayan calendar, which spans about 5,125 years, on December 21, 2012 has sparked interpretations and suggestions that it marks the end of the world.

“Whether they think it will come to an end through the hands of God, or a natural disaster or a political event, whatever the reason, one in seven thinks the end of the world is coming,” said Keren Gottfried, research manager at Ipsos Global Public Affairs which conducted the poll for Reuters.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/05/01/us-mayancalendar-poll-idUSBRE8400XH20120501

Some believe that the last page of the Mayan Dresden Codex pictures the world coming to an end this year via a great flood.  But that will not happen (cf. Genesis 9).

While we in the Living Church of God do believe that this current age will end, we do not believe that it is possible for it to end in 2012.  Amongst other reasons, there are no specific biblical prophecies that tie in with the Mayan December 21, 2012 date. Although many events that are aligning with the end of the world as we know it are occurring this year, the reality is that the world will not end in 2012.

Despite economic and other problems, the end is not yet as Jesus said:

7 But when you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be troubled; for such things must happen, but the end is not yet. 8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:7-8)

While I feel that we are likely in the period that Jesus called “the beginning of sorrows,” the earthquakes and other troubles so far, as well as to be expected this year, are not the end.

But the Great tribulation will eventually come and Jesus will eventually return.

Yet, because many have made false predictions about 2012, many will likely use 2012 as an excuse to scoff at and discount all prophecy.  According to the Bible, that will be a mistake (2 Peter 3:1-13).

It is simply not possible for the world to end in 2012 according to the Bible for the end happen in 2012 (please also see Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End?). Various scriptures show that the Great Tribulation cannot begin in 2012 (see Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012, 2013, or 2014? for more details).

Those who think it will or may, simply have been misled.

Yesterday, I did a follow-up radio interview about my 2012 book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.  The first time I was on that particular show (in late 2009), world events had already aligned with 6 or 7 predictions in my book.  And yesterday, I mentioned that world events have now aligned with at least 22 biblically-based predictions in my book.  And also I mentioned to her that those related to the fact that the world would not end on December 21, 2012 would also come to pass, because the Bible does not allow for the world to end this year.

Those interested in learning more about events that need to occur, and in what sequence, for the world to end, should consider getting 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect.  Compare what it says to the Bible (and it quotes a lot of scriptures).

More world events will align with properly understood scripture.   Jesus said to “Watch” (Mark 13:37).  And according to what Jesus said to watch for (cf. Mark 13:4-20), the world will not end in 2012.
