UCG: Will the world end on December 21, 2012?


Just in time for today, last night UCG sent out an email about its latest video titled Will the World End on December 21, 2012?   Here are some quotes from it:

[Darris McNeely] You’ve probably seen on the internet this weather chart of the weather that’s coming up this Friday, December 21st. A lot of people are looking at this date as the end of the world. Another empty, vain prediction about the world coming to a cataclysmic end with fire, meteors, high temperatures – all because of a supposed Mayan prediction that December 21, 2012 will mark the end of the world.

[Steve Myers] That’s right. It looks like it could be a really hot day. But when you see these kinds of things, it does make you laugh…

[Darris McNeely] Unfortunately, it appears to have caught on though, and a lot of people are taking it seriously. There is at least one report of someone who has committed suicide. People have called into NASA asking whether they should kill themselves. Is there something really to this? And again, it has just caught up a lot of attention and pointed to once again just the vanity of making predictions like this and getting caught up in these obscure prophecies that come from many parts of the world.

So far, at least two non-biblical predictions for today have proven to be false.  A couple of days ago, I reported that some in China believed that the sun would rise in the West instead of the East today (Chinese church protesters point to the Mayan 12/21/12 date, and, despite name, they are not truly COG).  And it “rose” from the East here and there are no reports that I have seen that say it rose from the West in China.  Notice also something else related to China:

On Dec. 17, police detained almost 1000 members of a religious group for spreading doomsday messages. (The group believes Jesus Christ has returned in the form of a woman from Henan province and that Friday will bring on three days of total darkness).  http://qz.com/37958/in-china-governments-denial-of-mayan-apocalypse-is-only-fueling-the-paranoia/

Even though biblical prophecy talks about the time that the sun is darkened (Revelation 6:12) and Catholic prophecy tells of a time of three days of darkness (see Catholic Prophecies: Do They Mirror, Highlight, or Contradict Biblical Prophecies?), it is still light in China without massive power outages, Jesus is not a woman, and Jesus has not yet returned (and will not prior to 2020).

Many more false prophecies for today will be proven false (here is a link to ten: Ten ‘End of the World Predictions’ That Will Be Proven False This Month).

It is true that high heat is prophesied in the Bible and the Mayans wrote about something like that, yet notice the time period as mentioned as I mentioned in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect:

There also seems to be a couple of Mayan predictions recorded in the 16th century that suggest some type of solar flare-up will affect the earth:

Chilam Balam (Mayan priest): Heaven and earth shall burn…It is the holy judgment, the holy judgment.

Napuctun (Mayan priest): It shall burn on earth; there shall be a circle in the sky.

Another N.A.S.A./N.O.A.A. report has indicated that the next solar cycle peak may be later, like May 2013… The Bible itself warns of a time of scorching solar heat (Revelation 16:8-9…)…

that flood and other prophecies are expected before 2030 (but after 2012)

Whether or not one believes secular scientists who assert that humans are causing “global warming,” and islands will be submerged, the Bible is clear that a time of high heat will happen, probably worsened by a solar flare-up of some type.  It also mentions the islands being gone:

8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory…every island fled away (Revelation 16:8-9, 20).

The signs will be powerful.  And the Babylonian power will fall during the Day of the Lord (Revelation 18:2).

This biblical period of high heat cannot happen until the Day of the Lord.  Which, at this time, is at least seven years away by my calculations (it begins 2 1/2 years after the start of the Great Tribulation).

Speaking of items from my book, when I wrote 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect my primary focus was on what would likely happen during the years 2012 through 2020 and beyond.  But of course, for many of the events to occur, other world events need to align themselves for them to come to pass.  At least 24 have so far, and very soon it will be 27.

The 25th, for those who want to know it know, is that the world will not end by tomorrow.


1.2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect teaches that the U.S. dollar will ultimately be worthless with another currency taking its place in the world (see Chapters 7-8 and Appendix B).

The Wall Street Journal reported that on September 7, 2009 a committee of the United Nations advised dropping the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency (Goldstein S. U.N. Panel Calls For Dollar Reserve Role To Be Eliminated.Wall Street Journal Online, September 8, 2009.http://online.wsj.com/article/BT-CO-20090908-704507.html).While there had been scattered discussions of this before, this was the first time such an important multi-national panel specifically called for the elimination of the role of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency.

Others have agreed since then and many nations in the world are in the process of trying to develop a plan to eliminate the U.S. dollar’s reserve currency status (Nielsen B. Dollar Slump Persisting as Top Analysts See No Bottom.Bloomberg,November 23, 2009.http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=aUFExWDBKmew&pos=2).Many Arab nations have decided to try to establish their own currency to get away from the US dollar as the world reserve currency (Evans-Pritchard A. Gulf petro-powers to launch currency in latest threat to dollar hegemony.Telegraph, December 16, 2009.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/economics/6819136/Gulf-petro-powers-to-launch-currency-in-latest-threat-to-dollar-hegemony.html).

Replacement plans need to determined by many before the U.S. dollar is dropped completely.

2.2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect explains that the Vatican will continue to expand its ecumenical policies and compromise in order to ultimately lure most of the Protestants and Orthodox into unity with the Church of Rome (see Chapter 3 & 10).

On October 20, 2009, CNN reported that the Vatican announced that it would allow Anglicans (and American Episcopalians) to become part of the Church of Rome without having to change much of their practices and rituals (Messia H. and Hanna J. Vatican welcomes Anglicans into Catholic Church.CNN, October 20, 2009.http://edition.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/europe/10/20/vatican.anglican.church/).

Yet, Pope Leo XIII declared in 1896, “ordinations carried out according to the Anglican rite have been, and are, absolutely null and utterly void” (Pope Leo XIII: On the Nullity of Anglican Orders, Apostolicae Curae, 1896. Modern History Sourcebook. http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/mod/1896leo13-apost.html)–which means for the Vatican to now accept those baptized, etc. by Anglican priests as Roman Catholic shows that compromise has occurred. The Vatican of the 21st century amended its constitution to accept the Anglicans.

On November 9, 2009, an Episcopal cleric explained how this would work and clearly stated that this allows for “the faculty to celebrate the Holy Eucharist and the other Sacraments … according to the liturgical books proper to the Anglican tradition” (Franklin. B. Vatican’s Apostolic Constitution explained. Episcopal Life Online, November 9, 2009. http://www.episcopal-life.org/80050_116538_ENG_HTM.htm).And much more compromised is expected.

3. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect clearly warns that a major united European power will rise up (see Chapter 5).

Although the Irish people had voted against the Lisbon Treaty in June 2008, in October 2009 20% more changed their mind and voted in favor of it (McDonald H.Ireland votes yes to Lisbon treaty. The Guardian, October 3, 2009. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/oct/03/ireland-votes-yes-lisbon-treaty ).

The Washington Post reported that on November 3, 2009, Czech President Vaclav Klaus was the last leader from 27 European nations to sign the Lisbon Treaty. President Klaus, who was opposed to signing it, after doing so stated that this would eliminate the sovereignty of the Czech Republic as the Treaty forms a European supranational state (Janicek H.Czech leader gives in, signs new E.U. charter.Washington Post, Associated Press.November 4, 2009.http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/11/03/AR2009110303497.html).

The European nations became part of the new empire called for the European Union on December 1, 2009 (EU Constitution Comes into Force.Voice of America,December 1, 2009. http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/europe/EU-Constitution-78224062-01DEC09-.html).

But many in America did not notice it as the Wall Street Journal stated, “Like a tree falling in a forest with nobody around, the entry into force of the Lisbon Treaty made barely a sound on Tuesday.And that was in Brussels.” [December 1, 2009] (Fidler S. EU Treaty Could Ease U.S. Effort on Mission.Wall Street Journal, December 4, 2009. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125988042088875605.html?mod=WSJ_hpp_MIDDLENexttoWhatsNewsSecond).Yet the same article indicated that this empire will develop much more power over time.And it will.

4. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect warns that U.S. President Obama will encourage the rise of a European power to the ultimate peril of the U.S.A. (see Chapter 8).

On October 15, 2009 it was reported that Czech President Vaclav Klaus was the lone EU leader still opposed to the Lisbon Treaty (Waterfield B. Czech President Vaclav Klaus ‘to continue’ lone resistance to Lisbon Treaty.Telegraph, October 15, 2009.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/czechrepublic/6329690/Czech-President-Vaclav-Klaus-to-continue-lone-resistance-to-Lisbon-Treaty.html).

The Obama administration worked to get the Lisbon Treaty approved as President Obama “wants a strong and united Europe” (Source: Baldwin T, Reid T., Coates S. Obama Administration worried about Cameron effect in Europe.The Times, October 21, 2009. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/politics/article6883075.ece#cid=OTC-RSS&attr=797093).

On October 23, 2009, US Vice President Joseph Biden visited the Czech Republic and gave it security reassurances (U.S. foreign policy aware of threats – Havel after meeting Biden.CTK, October 23, 2009. http://www.ceskenoviny.cz/news/zpravy/u-s-foreign-policy-aware-of-threats-havel-after-meeting-biden/404375).This could have possibly had some limited influence on some of the Czech leadership.

On November 3, 2009, Agence France Presse (AFP) reported that USA President Barack Obama publicly expressed his support for the Czech President’s signing of the Lisbon Treaty and for now having a ‘strengthened’ EU (Obama welcomes ‘strengthened’ EU. AFP, November 3, 2009.http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hJ8OzJSh0xfKow8z47RGCYQu1nsg)

5. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect teaches that a peace deal involving the Middle East with confirmation from a European leader must come to pass (see Chapters 5 & 8).

It was reported on November 5, 2009 that a deal involving the USA, EU, and Russia with the Middle East is something that Mrs. Clinton has tried to keep secret (Source: Hillary Clinton gives Obama’s Middle East game away.WSWS., November 5, 2009. http://www.wsws.org/articles/2009/nov2009/pers-n05.shtml).

On November 13, 2009, Voice of America reported that French President Sarkozy held meetings with Middle Eastern leaders for some type of peace deal (Byrant L. Sarkozy Leads Charge in Reinvigorating Stalled Mideast Peace Talks.Voice of America,November 13, 2009.http://www.voanews.com/english/2009-11-13-voa26.cfm).

The EU foreign ministers insisted on parts of a future European Middle East peace plan on December 8, 2009 (Schaeder B., Corder M. EU: Jerusalem Should Be Joint Capital. New York Times,December 8, 2009. http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2009/12/08/world/AP-EU-EU-Mideast.html).
