Another Countdown for 2012: What Will, Will Not, and May Happen in 2012?


A reader sent me the following in an email titled Another Countdown for 2012:

Population overload
BBC Focus magazine – May 2010 issue.    excerpts…
Space, food and fuel are finite and, as the world’s population increases, so will the demand on them. Ian Taylor looks at the outcomes of this growing problem, and how to solve it.  By the time you’ve finished reading this sentence, the human population of Earth will have increased by approximately 12 people.
The current population is 6.8 billion, and we’re expected to stampede through the 7 billion mark in 2012.
According to the UN, the world population in 2050 will be 9.1 billion – a rise of over 6.6 billion in the 100 years since 1950.
The question is, can the Earth cope with that many people?

His comments about this were as follows:

Throughout Scripture, the number 7 symbolizes completeness or perfection. Its an unusual coincidence that the World Population will reach 7 Billion early in 2012.  Not 6.8 billion, not 9 billion,
but 7 billion.

“But in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished [Strong’s #5055 finished, fulfilled, expired, filled up, made an end].” Revelation 10:7

Now, since I have written a book with 2012 in the title, let me try to clearly explain some of what what will and what will not happen in 2012:

  1. Despite what anyone says, the world absolutely will not end in a flood on December 21, 2012–the Bible says that is NOT possible (Genesis 9:11).
  2. Scoffers will complain that prophecy is of no real value and that nothing shows that Jesus is to soon return or that God’s judgment is coming.  But they will be wrong (2 Peter 3:3-12).
  3. However, when the world does not end in a flood, certain of those associated with the New Age Movement will declare that they were always correct that the end of the Mayan long-count calendar did not signal the destruction of the earth, but instead it signaled the dawn of a new age of peace.  However, the Bible is clear that wars are part of the “beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:7-8) and the great tribulation still is coming (Matthew 24:21).  The Bible has many warnings about false declarations of peace and because of non-biblical lies being told this may be associated with one of them (Ezekiel 13:8-10).
  4. People will be running to and fro and knowledge (though some of it tainted) will increase as we get closer to the end (Daniel 12:4).
  5. Since the peace deal of Daniel 9:27 has not been made as of today (April 26, 2010) and it will take 3 1/2 years for the Great Tribulation to begin once that deal is “confirmed” by the “prince” (Daniel 9:26-27), then the Great Tribulation itself will NOT start in 2012 (it would have to be no early than 2013 at this stage, with 2014 or so more likely).
  6. The USA and its Anglo-allies will not yet have been taken over by the rising European power (though the UK’s status at that time with the EU may be complicated).
  7. If the peace deal of Daniel 9:27 is made by 12/31/2012, and we in the Living Church of God start to announce that (as we would be expected to), then the world’s media and more of its people will at least become more familiar with Christ’s gospel of the kingdom, which is consistent with other prophecies (e.g. Matthew 24:14; 28:19-20).  This public proclamation may be uncomfortable for some and lead to reprisals that could start by the end of 2012 or relatively shortly thereafter (Matthew 24:9-10; Daniel 11:28-30).

The following may or may not happen in 2012:

  1. We may be in the time known as “the beginning of sorrows” (however, those could have started in or by October 2009) .  These prophesied sorrows include religious deception, wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places, and other troubles (Matthew 24:4-8; Mark 13:5-8).  Changes in weather patterns are consistent with the prophecies for this time.
  2. Solar flares may or may not cause power disruptions.
  3. The population of earth may or may not surpass seven billion.
  4. There may or may not be civil unrest in Europe and/or North America.
  5. The USA and UK may have so much debt that there may be serious problems with the value of their currencies and their futures (Habakkuk 2:1-8).
  6. The USA will likely have more gaps in its military readiness.
  7. Europe may be developing military technologies from the Large Hadron Collider or other sources which will allow it to fulfill prophecies (e.g. Revelation 13:3-4; Isaiah 10:5-11).

The 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect book has more details, more prophecies, and is a lot longer (about 384 pages) than my online article.

The book is now available now from in English, Spanish, and German. It is also available from Barnes and Noble .com at the following title links 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, 2012 Y El Surgimiento De La Secta Secreta, and 2012 Und Das Auftreten Der Geheimen Sekte.

I hope regular readers of this page will read and study this book as it contains numerous prophecies and explains which will, which may, and which will not come to pass.  If readers order it from the following link this week, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, they will also receive a bonus report showing many world events which align with at least ten or eleven predictions in the book which have come to pass since the book was published.  Bible prophecy has come to pass, is coming to pass, and will come to pass.  Hopefully, the comments and many biblical quotes in my 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect book will help take some of the uncertainty out of the events that are occurring and will occur in this age.
