World did not end in a catastrophic flood nor did society end by solar flares


Despite the interpretations of Mayan writings and artifacts by some, the world did not end in a catastrophic flood last night (although in California we are supposed to get some rain today, but that is normal for this time of year), nor did the earth get excessively scorched with high heat as some thought it might.  Nor was the bulk of the world’s power grid hit with a devastating solar flare (or something similar) to cause long-term damage (as some suggested on The History Channel less than 30 hours ago).

As author of 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, Sony Pictures invited me to attend the press screening of its 2012 movie before it was released in November 2009. The movie itself was about 2 1/2 hours long.  It, while consistent with one Mayan prediction (that may not have been for this date), pushes the non-biblical position that the world would be destroyed by a flood in 2012. The trailer also has the following statements:





The above was, biblically, a false claim. 2012 was not the end of the world. That Sony 2012 movie prediction was wrong.

There is also an interesting Mayan writing from the 16th century, called the Chilam Balam, which has 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).

The Mayan flood prophecy, presuming that it applied to 2012 (there is debate about that) was be proven false.

Although the Bible does show that some type of flooding will occur and eliminate most of the islands of the world (please see Islands and Bible Prophecy), but I do not believe that this can occur until some years 2017. Nor does the Bible allow for a worldwide destruction of all flesh through a flood:

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).

My book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Secttaught that many things would not happen on December 21, 2012 and some that will.  As it turns out on that date, the world did not end in a flood, Jesus did not return, the world was not destroyed by a solar storm, the world was not be destroyed by high heat, the Great Tribulation did not start, and December 21, 2012 did not mark the end of civilization, but some did at least partially interpret the lack of the apocalypse and the calendar change on December 21, 2012 as verification that a “golden age of peace” or era of peace was beginning.  While some others discounted ‘end of the world’ prophecies, and even suggested that the Bible does not contain them.

The accuracy of the related predictions was confirmed by numerous news sources (Alper A. World survives as Maya ‘end of days’ marked in Mexico.  Reuters, December 21, 2012.; Mosbergen D. Evo Morales, Bolivia’s President, Celebrates Mayan ‘Apocalypse’ With Tradition, Ushers In Era Of Love. Huffington Post, December 21, 2012.; Bragg R. Doomsdayers have fun planning world’s end.  San Antonio Express-News, December 20, 2012.; AS I SEE IT — Congrats, it appears we survived. Brandon Sun, December 22, 2012.—-congrats-it-appears-we-survived-184520651.html?thx=y).  Even the expression “golden age of peace” was used (Harden KD.  ‘The world is always ending one day at a time — so you’ve got to celebrate every one.’  The Advocate, December 22, 2012. to describe what was happening.

FWIW, news reported world events have aligned with at least 32 biblically-understood predictions in my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect (a listing is at the beginning of the article End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?).  And more will as well after 2012.

Those interested in the truth should check out the following:

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? Are there Mayan calendar predictions for change in 2012? Changes were centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans. Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?  What are the 32 predictions in the book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect that were at least partially confirmed by news sources by 12/22/2012?
Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End? Was a 6000 year time allowed for humans to rule followed by a literal thousand year reign of Christ on Earth taught by the early Christians? When does the six thousand years of human rule end?
Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012, 2013, or 2014? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord?
