Mayan fiscal cliff prediction?


The ‘fiscal cliff’ remains in the news in the USA and some have tied it in with Mayan ‘end of the world’ predictions:

The End Of The World As We Know It, Fiscally Speaking

The Mayan calendar says it happens tomorrow — the end of the world, that is — and at least when it comes to the fiscal cliff, it may be right.

There are now just 12 short days to go before the end of the year, and talks between House Speaker John Boehner and President Obama have hit rock bottom.

ONE MORE WAY A CLIFF DIVE COULD AFFECT YOU: If you depend on an early tax refund to help pay for large holiday credit card bills you could be out of luck. The last-minute debate over the fiscal cliff may delay tax refunds in the New Year, ABC News Business Correspondent Richard Davies notes. The IRS is likely to be very busy dealing with changes in the tax code. “There’s a high possibility that the tax filing season could be further delayed,” says Kathy Pickering, executive director of The Tax Institute at H&R Block. “We’re recommending that people be aware of that,” especially you are looking for an early refund to take care of a big credit card bill.

Fiscal cliff: D.C.’s Mayan apocalypse

We are careening toward Dec. 21, 2012, the date of the Mayan apocalypse, when the world is supposed to come to an end through a series of cataclysmic upheavals, according to assorted astrologers and mystics ‑ though not the Mayans themselves, who said it was merely the end of their calendar. We are also hurtling toward the Jan. 1 “fiscal cliff,” when the American economy could re-enter a devastating recession ‑ a man-made mini-apocalypse.

This “fiscal cliff” is that taxes in the USA are to raise January 1, 2013 without federal action and automatic spending cuts are also to go into place to attempt to reduce the USA’s deficit growth (USA debt is to increase even if the taxes are increased and the spending is cut).

Although it has nothing directly related to the Mayan calendar, there are a variety of political cartoons that I have seen which suggest that it is (see,, for one example ).

The spending cuts that are associated with the fiscal cliff will affect many areas of US government spending. In terms of military spending, USA Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has warned about the dangers of the cuts as “doomsday” (‘Doomsday’ Defense Cuts) and “unthinkable” (Panetta Weighs Unthinkable Defense Cuts) and yet they may well happen–they may help the stage for the military takeover of the USA that the Bible prophesies in Daniel 11:39. The tax increase portion has been called “THE LARGEST TAX HIKES IN AMERICAN HISTORY” (Obama Book #1 Again? Fiscal Cliff an Economic & Military Danger). The automatic cuts include reduction to entitlement programs and about an 8.2% reduction in federal education spending, which will impact school districts around the nation.

While the Republicans and Democrats are using this as a major partisan fight, the reality is that the rest of the world is also watching and is very disturbed by all of this. The Europeans and others are realizing that the USA is losing its position in the world–and when it does, this will be the final “time of the Gentiles” that the Bible warns of (Ezekiel 30:2-3; Luke 21:23-24; Revelation 11:2). Yet, few in the USA seem to realize what is going on. The leaders in the USA are causing the nation to err (cf. Isaiah 3:12; 9:16).

While the USA will survive the upcoming “fiscal cliff,” and it is not the end of the world as we know it (TEOTWAWKI), how it has handled this matter is sending a signal to the rest of the world that the USA cannot possibly remain the dominant economic power in the world. The policies and decisions in Washington, D.C. are helping to create the conditions for the upcoming European Beast power to fill the void in economic (and even military) leadership that the USA is in the process of making.
