RCM Mentions 2012

“Orthodox” 16th Century Representation of the “Apocalypse”


Although he did not refer to the Mayan calendar, LCG’s RC Meredith wrote the following that mentioned 2012 in the latest edition of the Living Church News:

We would be remiss in our responsibility to you and to God if we did not specifically warn you brethren about the soon-coming “fiery trials”! Yes, in the end, we win! Yes, it is true that most of those who really are “Philadelphians” will be taken to the promised Place of Safety and will thus escape  the full fury of the Great Tribulation (Revelation 3:10). However, brethren, we have always recognized that some of us ministers—and many others—may be persecuted, imprisoned or die as martyrs before the Great Tribulation is fully underway…

Brethren, many of you may have seen the recent predictions by Gerald Celente, Chief Executive Officer of the Trends Research Institute—a man renowned for his accuracy in predicting future world and economic events, including the 1987 stock market crash and the fall of the Soviet Union. Considering Celente’s past record of accuracy, his most recent forecasts may send a chill down your spine. Speaking to Fox News late last year, Celente warned that by 2012 America will become an undeveloped nation, that there will be a revolution marked by food riots, squatter rebellions, tax revolts and job marches, and that holidays will be more about obtaining food, not gifts. “We’re going to see the end of the retail Christmas…. we’re going to see a fundamental shift take place…. putting food on the table is going to be more important than putting gifts under the Christmas tree,’ said Celente, adding that the situation would be ‘worse than the great depression’” (“Revolution, food riots in America by 2012,” Commodity Online, December 1, 2008).

We are not setting dates, nor are we saying Celente’s forecasts are definitely correct. But this man’s predictions may well come to pass, in time! As Christians, we must examine our own hearts and be sure we are prepared to remain faithful even in a time of food riots, race riots, various rebellions and tax revolts and a period of unusual lawlessness which may come upon us before the final end of our nation. May God help each of us to love one  another, forgive one another—and even forgive those who try to do us physical harm.We know all of the scriptures about this, but—during the next several years—we may have an opportunity to put these teachings into practice in a way we have never done before! (Meredith RC.  Are YOU Prepared for the “Fiery” Trials? Living Church News, May-June 2009, pp. 1,2,21).

There are also others that warn that food shortages can hit America and other parts of the world in the next few years.  And as Jesus and the Daniel warned their will be persecutions that will affect the most faithful just prior to the time of the Great Tribulation.

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans (the Hindus may have some predictions for the next decade as well).

Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
