Philippine Flooding and 2012 Flood Predictions


The death toll has risen from Typhoon Bopha in the Philippines:

Death toll from Philippine typhoon climbs past 500

Bullit Marquez, Associated Press, New Bataan, Philippines | World | Fri, December 07 2012…

The death toll from the storm has surpassed 500, with more than 400 people missing.More than 310,000 people have lost their homes since Typhoon Bopha struck Tuesday and are crowded inside evacuation centers or staying with their relatives, relying on food and emergency supplies being rushed in by government agencies and aid groups.

LCG seems to have the most members of any COG in the Philippines and as of a report I got last night, though members in the affected area had housing damage, there were no reported causalities.

A French language publication reporting on the flood in the Philippines mentioned it along with the Mayan ‘end of the world’ calendar date (the following is machine-translated as I do not read French):

5 December 2012

Tuesday 4 December, a typhoon ravages the southern Philippines. Typhoon Bopha…

Nature rebels increasingly, natural disasters called “normal” if you allow me this expression have consequences with increasing disasters…{is this a type of preview of} the end of the world under the Mayan calendar on December 21 this year? It is something to ask!..our world completely adrift, nature force rebels to be abused more, this is really disturbing …

Notice also the following from a couple of weeks ago:

Lu Zhenghai of China began preparations for the Mayan Apocalypse in 2010, when he decided to spend his life savings to build an ark designed to sustain the flood waters he fears will accompany the prophesized end of the world on Dec. 21, 2012…The problem is, Lu Zhenghai has exhausted his life savings of $160,500 building the ark and it still isn’t finished. Zhenghai says the ark needs another $160,500 for equipment.

Lu Zhenghai should not have started a project he could not complete (Luke 14:28-30), but also there is no need for an ark as the world will not be destroyed with a flood two weeks from today (Genesis 9:11-15).

Three years ago, Sony put out a movie showing the world being mainly destroyed by a flood at the end of the current long-count Mayan calendar, which is December 21, 2012.   Many people are saved in the movie by going on arks that the Chinese supposedly were secretly building.

But the world will not end in a flood this month.


Because the Bible makes that clear:

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, NKJV)

Now, in Sony’s defense, its movie’s premise does seem to have been based on one particular interpretation of a centuries old Mayan prophecy (and likely other Mayan information, like a particular interpretation of the last page of the Dresden Codex).

In the 16th century Mayan writing known as the Chilam Balam there is the following:

But when the law of the katun has run its course, the God will bring about a great deluge again which will be the end of the world. When this is over, then our Lord Jesus Christ will descend over the valley of Jehoshaphat beside the town of Jerusalem where he redeemed us with his holy blood (José Hoíl J, Roys R. The Book of Chilam Balam of Chumayel. Roys Publisher, 1933. Reprint Forgotten Books, 1967, p. 62).

Since the Mayan calendar ends when one of the katuns is finished (December 21, 2012), some interpret that the world will end in a flood that begins that date.  Yet, while December 21, 2012 is the end of the current Mayan cycle of 13 ‘baktuns’ (roughly 5,125 years), the reference to the particular ‘katun’ (a shorter time period, less than 20 years) above may be for another time.  There will be no massive worldwide flood on December 21/22, 2012.  For more details, please check out End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?

But notice that the particular Mayan prophecy, which by the way is the most explicit one about the world ending in a flood (prior to the 16th century the Mayans did not write, but essentially used a picture written communication system which 21st century scholars interpret in various ways), says that Jesus will return.  As it turns out, the book that mentions Jesus the most, the Holy Bible, has this to say about a disastrous flood (Genesis 9:8-11).

So, no, the world as we know it will not be destroyed by December 22, 2012. People do not need to live in fear that their county will be destroyed like the Sony 2012 movie portrays. The Bible is clear that the world will not be destroyed by a flood.

As far as a flood this month and some wondering about the Mayan calendar, here is something from my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect (published in August 2012):

December 21, 2012 (I Ching calculation may be a month earlier); some scoff and claim nothing “prophetic” can ever happen, some look for a flood.  These are the times, however, of the last days…

December 22, 2012. World does not end in destruction.  There is no world-destroying flood.

So, though some wonder if a world-destroying flood is coming this month, it will not.

It is likely that when the world does not end in a flood, that on December 22, 2012 scoffers will rise up and discount all prophecy.  Because of misinterpretations of 2012 and certain media, hype, many will doubt Bible prophecy. Notice that the Apostle Peter warned about this:

1 Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), 2 that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us, the apostles of the Lord and Savior, 3 knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” 5 For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, 6 by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. 7 But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? (2 Peter 3:1-13)

So, no, we do not need to take steps today to prepare for the end of the world and return of Jesus Christ on December 21/22, 2012, but yes Jesus will return and the world as we know it will end. But that will not be for years from now.
