Mayan calendar interpreter has world ending this week

A reader sent me a link to the following:

If you thought COVID-19, civil unrest, locusts, volcanic eruptions and hurricanes signaled Armageddon — you may be right!

The reading of the Mayan calendar was wrong according to a conspiracy theory on Twitter, and while the world didn’t end on Dec. 21, 2012, as originally prophesied by calendar readers, Mayan doomsday is sometime this week or next.

“Following the Julian Calendar, we are technically in 2012… The number of days lost in a year due to the shift into Gregorian Calendar is 11 days… For 268 years using the Gregorian Calendar (1752-2020) times 11 days = 2,948 days. 2,948 days / 365 days (per year) = 8 years,” scientist Paolo Tagaloguin tweeted last week according to the Sun. The series of tweets has since been deleted.

If Tagaloguin is correct, adding up all the missed days, then the Mayan doomsday date is … this week.

No, it is NOT possible that the world will end this week, next week, next month, or even next year.

As long term readers of this COGwriter Church of God News page may remember, I have been denouncing ‘doomsday’ related to interpretations of the Mayan calendar and symbols since no later than 2009 when I published a book on it (2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect).

While anti-COG and anti-COGwriter critics have faulted me for referring Mayan and other non-biblical prophecies from time to time, they tend not to report that I wrote and repeatedly said the world WOULD NOT END as some felt the Mayans predicted. I clearly stated that the Mayans were not inspired by God (though perhaps should mention here that LCG‘s then presiding evangelist told me in 2009 that he thought the demons knew something would happen, that he felt they inspired the Mayans, and that we should pay some attention to all of this).

Furthermore, many seem to wish to forget that the old Radio Church of God also referred to Mayan, Greek, Roman (including Fatima), Parthian, Indian, and Chinese prophecies (see Dorothy CV, Torrance LE. History Documents Jesus Christ. Good News, December 1967, pp. 9-10,23-24; Hill DJ. Christ or Antichrist? Good News, April 1961; Hill DJ. Will You Be Deceived by Antichrist? Good News, October 1964; McNair R. POPE MEETS PATRIARCH. Plain Truth, October 1967). The second century COG pastor/bishop Theophilus of Antioch also cited non-biblical prophetic sources–as, of course, did the Apostle Paul (e.g. Acts 17:28).

And as far as the Mayan 2012 situation goes, when the world did not end on December 21, 2012 like some feared, by the next day, world events had aligned with at least 32 predictions in my book (for documented details, see End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?).

Since that time, others have pointed to other wrong ‘Mayan’ end of the world dates. For example, someone from New Jersey sent me some emails that stated the following concerning the Mayan calendar and December 16, 2013:

Millions, if not billions will be thrust back to the stone age. Unfortunately, few know how to live that way anymore. Wildlife will be fine. Modern civilization, not so much!!!
Prepare your family and flock as best you can, we’re in for some very hard times.
MAY 2012: The Mayan’s Dresden Codex predicted a Solar eclipse on May 20, 2012, and it happened. The Codex also indicates the Earth would be struck by a mild geomagnetic storm on the same day, and it happened (proof below). CONFIRMED!!!
NOVEMBER 2012: The Codex predicted a Solar eclipse on November 13, 2012, and it happened. The Codex also indicates the Earth would be struck by a mild geomagnetic storm on the same day, and it happened (proof below). CONFIRMED!
DECEMBER 2013: The Codex predicts the Earth will be struck by something December 16, 2013. It appears to be a MASSIVE geomagnetic event of some kind. After that, the Time Line Ends, The Great Cycle is Complete!!!
Biblicaly, I’m guessing this is the beginning of the Great Tribulation. Without modern technology, life on Earth will descend into chaos in a matter of a few days, or even hours.
REAL Mayan End Date is December 16, 2013
The True “End-Time” of the Mayan Calendar (Dec. 16th, 2013)

Earth, Venus, & Comet ISON form a perfect triangle on December 16, 2013…ISON Could Trigger Massive Solar Flares!!! ISON is a “Sun-Grazing Comet”.

I denounced the above prediction as false.

Whatever the Mayan Dresden Codex may or may not 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 before 2027, along with the return of Jesus, and the start of the millennial reign. Furthermore, unless events change in the Middle East soon to result in the confirmation of the ‘peace deal’ of Daniel 9:27 this Fall, 2027 is to early.

But the Great Tribulation will eventually come and Jesus will eventually return. Although some have falsely claimed that the Great Tribulation has already started, they seem to overlook the fact that Jesus said there would be a time called “the beginning of sorrows” (Matthew 24:4-8)–which is a time that has apparently began. Jesus said that this period has “troubles’ (Mark 13:8), would precede the Great Tribulation (Matthew cf. 24:4-8,21) and that during this time of sorrows, “See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet” (Matthew 24:6). But the end will come later (Matthew 24:19-44).

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).

Notice something I had published about the Mayan calendar date eleven years ago in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect:

But What About the Mayan December 21, 2012 Date?

The Mayan 2012 calendar date correctly predicts an astronomical event. That is part of its value. And there may be a bit more to it.

There are basically four possibilities that most have considered about December 21, 2012:

  1. 2012 is or is not an astronomical event and nothing else. It means nothing. This is a real possibility.
  2. 2012 is an astronomical event that accelerates climatic changes—another real possibility.
  3. 2012 marks the end of civilization and the destruction of the world by flood. Biblically, that is not a possibility. The world will not end by flooding in 2012.
  4. 2012 marks the beginning of a new age of peace. While not an age of true peace, it could mark the time when the following prophecy is fulfilled:

“Because, indeed, because they have seduced My people, saying, ‘Peace!’ when there is no peace” (Ezekiel 13:10).

While some type of an astronomical event will occur (even if it is not a true alignment), weather patterns often change. Some will likely claim 2012 is the dawn of a time of peace, as highlighted in point four. The 2012 prophecies may also be part of a spiritual deception.

Of course, the Bible shows that even people like King David (1 Chronicles 21:1) and Apostle Peter (Matthew 16:23) can be moved by Satan.

While this book is not accusing the Mayans (nor most of the others cited in this book) of intentionally trying to serve evil demons (the Mayans were simply the world’s leading calendar experts), the Dresden Codex and various writings may have been inadvertently produced to add further confusion to end-time prophecies just prior to the Great Tribulation.

There are many age-of-peace prophecies from others, such as the Hopis, some of the Hindus, some of the Buddhists, and certain Catholic sources. Some might refer to this as collective thought. However, even the often-accurate Catholic Malachy’s prophecies contain some false elements. Hence, caution is advised with regard to putting full faith in these private prophecies.

While a true age of peace is coming, some might erroneously conclude that it starts in 2012 or 2013 or shortly later—but it will not. It cannot.

When the world does not end in a flood in 2012, many will likely discount not only the Mayan prophecies, but any that seem to be predicting any type of a “doomsday” scenario. Because of that, many will discount the warnings that will come from “the secret sect.”

On the other hand, it is likely that leaders of various religious persuasions will point to signs, wonders, the stars, etcetera, as reasons to believe that the age of peace has arrived. They will use these as justification for ignoring the warnings from the secret sect.

But people will ignore the warnings at their own peril.

In the next decade, the small Nazarene “secret sect” will rise up more and more in effectiveness to fulfill the prophecy Jesus gave, as recorded in Matthew 24:14. Ultimately, the world will hear the message of the good news of the coming Kingdom of God on earth, under the rule of Jesus Christ and His saints (which is the ultimate rising up of “the secret sect”).

The world will then also be more clearly told the message that a new ecumenical religion, one that is destined to temporarily take over the earth, is in the process of rising up.

The small sect will point out the instigator of this new order of religion (the King of the North, 666). The sect will likely explain that he will ultimately plunge the planet into the Great Tribulation, destroy the U.S.A. and its Anglo-allies, will invade the Middle East, will attempt to destroy/takeover all other religions (Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.), and that he will want only his ecumenical religion served.

Because he will not like the Nazarene sect warning about his identity and his plan, he will develop a strategy to destroy that “secret sect,” and eventually, also those whom it had successfully influenced.

Whether you believe any of this or not, you will be affected. Much of your nation will be destroyed, or there will be such devastation in your land, that you will wish you would have listened to the messages from the “secret sect.” Times will get so bad that the Bible warns:

6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them (Revelation 9:5–6).

We are living in times of major historical interest, as both the “secret” Nazarene sect and the coming anti-Nazarene ecumenical religion will soon face one another. The “secret sect” truly has been faithful to the practices of the original apostles, while the other religion will apparently become quite distanced from those beliefs, as God warns His people to come out of that other religious system (Revelation 18:4).

For a while, this great ecumenical “Beast power” (666) will to some extent take over the whole world.

It has long been my view that “2012” and other Mayan predictions have been part of a Satanic plan to get people to discount biblical prophecy and chose to believe the lie (cf. John 8:44; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10) that a golden age of peace is about to descend upon the earth. Instead, a time of destruction is going to happen (1 Thessalonians 5:3), and partially because of misinformation from non-biblical prophecies many will not believe the truth about the coming destruction.

Though troubles can occur (Mark 13:8), this week does not mark the start of the Great Tribulation.
