CG7 Reports CGOM’s J. McBride’s Take on 2012 ‘Day of Doom’

The current edition of CG7-Denver’s Bible Advocate has an article from CGOM’s James McBride.  Here are some portions of it:

Prophetic dates come and go.  What about December 21, 2012?

Some say the day of doom is at the door. Alignment of planets, a collision with Nibiru, a shifting polar axis, reversal of earth’s magnetic field, a “beam” from the Milky Way’s center, catastrophic earthquakes and tsunamis — all coming to their climactic focus on December 21 of this year!…

But is it true? Is this “the end” for all of us? Not that the Mayans predicted such for this now infamous date…

Jesus will return — in the Father’s perfect timing. The date you anticipate may or may not be the one. Tot up prophesied events, and the time may, thankfully, be cut short! What Jesus said was “Be vigilant.” Watch. Be prepared. Hold fast to the true faith. Don’t let your love grow cold. Be patient. Serve until He comes.

James McBride is correct that Jesus will return, we do not yet know the date, the most faithful Christians will hold fast, and that all should watch and serve until He returns.

As far as the Mayans go, the last page of the Dresden Codex is the part that most who believe the world can end on December 21, 2012 have focused on.  The idea that it may have been predicting a flood at the end of the Mayan long-count calendar has been suspected in Western circles for at least a century.  In 1906, notice some of what was written by Ernst Wilhelm Förstemann concerning the Dresden Codex:

COMMENTARY ON THE DRESDEN CODEX… This page can denote nothing but the end of the world, for which the serpent numbers have prepared the way. Perhaps what looks like a zero above the sign Eb in the stream of water may likewise point to this calamity. (Förstemann EW. Commentary on the Maya manuscript in the Royal public library of Dresden Papers of the Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology, Harvard University. Translated by Selma Wesselhoeft, Alberta M. Parker. Publisher The Museum, 1906 Original from Harvard University Digitized Dec 14, 2005, p. 266)

Of course, different researchers have different opinions about what this means, but the world will not end in a flood according to Bible prophecy:

8 Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying: 9 “And as for Me, behold, I establish My covenant with you and with your descendants after you, 10 and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every beast of the earth with you, of all that go out of the ark, every beast of the earth. 11 Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” (Genesis 9:8-11).

Also, 2012 is not the end of the world nor will Jesus return in 2012. The Mayan flood prophecy will be proven false, whether it related to 2012 or not or the Dresden Codex or not.

Other scriptures show that the Great Tribulation and the later great earthquake (Revelation 16:18) cannot be that early (see Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012, 2013, or 2014? for more details).

Whatever the Dresden Codex may be trying to portray (my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect discusses certain views), it is not possible that the end of the world will occur in 2012, Jesus will not return in 2012 (Ronald Weinland was wrong; see Ron Weinland Falsely Claims ‘Work of the Two Witnesses is Over’), nor can the Great Tribulation begin that early.

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).

Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012? How might Barack Obama be involved in 2012?
