2012’s rare ‘Transit of Venus’ is coming


Transit of Venus in 2004 (Benutzer:Klingon)


A phenomena called the “transit of Venus” is about to occur:

The last Venus transit was in 2004 so the second event of the pair will occur on Wednesday, June 6 (Tuesday, June 5 from the Western Hemisphere). The entire event will be widely visible from the western Pacific, eastern Asia and eastern Australia as shown in Figure 1. Most of North and Central America, and northern South America will witness the beginning of the transit (on June 5) but the Sun will set before the event ends. Similarly, observers in Europe, western and central Asia, eastern Africa and western Australia will see the end of the event since the transit will already be in progress at sunrise from those locations.

ABC News -Watch with care. Tuesday afternoon, US time, we earthlings will be treated to the rare spectacle of a transit of Venus — the heavens aligning so that the small black disc of the planet Venus marches slowly across the face of the sun.

Wikipedia reports, “Transits of Venus are among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena. They occur in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eight years apart separated by long gaps of 121.5 years and 105.5 years.”  NASA reports:

Transits of Venus are only possible during early December and early June when Venus’s orbital nodes pass across the Sun. If Venus reaches inferior conjunction at this time, a transit will occur. Transits show a clear pattern of recurrence at intervals of 8, 121.5, 8 and 105.5 years. The next pair of Venus transits occur over a century from now on 2117 Dec 11 and 2125 Dec 08.  http://eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov/transit/venus0412.html

Some believe that the transit of Venus is a step signalling the end of the world this year.  It is not.

Part of the reason is that the last page of the Mayan Dresden Codex is believed to picture the transit of Venus.  Partially because it is such a rare occurrence and there is a transit of Venus in 2012, some have concluded that the Mayan Dresden Codex is pointing something happening in 2012:

The most important of these was what is now called the “Dresden Codex”, named after the town in whose library it was lodged. This strange book, inscribed with unknown hieroglyphs, was written by Maya Indians who once ruled over much of Central America, the ruins of their once grand civilization littering the jungle. In 1880 a brilliant, German scholar, who was working as a librarian in Dresden at the time, turned his attention to this codex. By a process of extraordinary detective work he cracked the code of the Mayan calendar making it possible for other scholars and explorers to translate the many dated inscriptions to be found on buildings, stelae and other ancient Mayan artefacts. He discovered that the Dresden Codex itself was concerned with astronomy providing detailed tables of lunar eclipses and other phenomenon. These were so accurate that they put our own calendar to shame. He also found evidence for a curious “magic number”- 1,366,560 days, which could be factorised in a number of ways and which harmonised the cycles of Venus and Mars with two “yearly” cycles also used by the Maya: the sacred tzolkin of 260 days and the Haab of 365 days. However, he also found that they had another system of counting the days relative to a starting date, called the Birth of Venus and now known to be 13 August 3114 BC.  This calendar was divided into “months” or uinals of twenty days, “years” or tuns of 360 days and longer periods of 7200 days, (the katun) and 144,000 days, (the baktun). The number 13 was magically important to the Mayans and they believed that, starting from the Birth of Venus, after 13 of these longest periods, or baktuns, the world would come to an end. This means that working from their start date for the present age of 13 August 3114 BC, this Mayan Prophecy points to a date for the end of the age which is in our own time: 22 December 2012…(http://www.adriangilbert.co.uk/docus/books/mayan.html).

Ahau Sequence: The sequence of five day-signs related in the Dresden Codex which are used to predict the morningstar risings of Venus: Ahau, Kan, Lamat, Eb and Cib. This sequence also occurs in the same context in the Popol Vuh. (Jenkins JM. What is the Galactic Alignment? http://alignment2012.com/fap7.html viewed 12/27/11)

Notice what Mark Van Stone at the website of the Foundation for the Advancement of MesoAmerican Studies, Inc. states:

In any case, p. 74 of the Dresden does indeed appear to be a Flood, maybe even the one described in the Popol Vuh…Except there are no people being washed away, nor other indications of destruction, except the black warrior God L, who also presided at the 4 Ajaw 3 Kumk’u Creation (3114 BC) on the Vases of the 7 Gods and of the 11 Gods…

The Dresden does contain some astronomical tables –:notably Venus cycle and Eclipse Tables, for example–: and some mysterious tables such as the Serpent-Numbers (those dealing with 37,000 BCE), but most of them are auguries, based on cycles of the Tzolk’in divided by 5, or 6, or 7, or 18, or other numbers of days. (Questions and answers http://www.famsi.org/research/vanstone/2012/comments.html viewed 12/27/11)

Some have indicated that one or more of the small astronomical tables (which are very difficult to read on the last page of the Dresden Codex) point to some type of “galactic alignment,” perhaps involving Venus (others say not possible–though others say that the over six month gap between the transit and the alignment on the Dresden Codex are trying to portray a sequence of 2012 events) and/or the Milky Way (others dispute that). But these are mainly modern Western interpretations of the Dresden Codex.  To see the Dresden Codex, check out the article End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something?

The History Channel reported:

The last page of the Dresden codex actually shows the destruction of the world via water…

This graphic illustration depicts the destruction of the earth by flood…Others see it as a day of rebirth…Others see it literally, with very severe consequences (Mayan Doomsday Prophecy, Decoding the Past. Original air date 08/03/06).

Since the world cannot and will not be destroyed by a flood (cf. Genesis 9), I strongly suspect that some will decide that the Mayan prophecies should properly be interpreted to mean that the longed for age of peace is upon us–even though it will not be (Ezekiel 13:10).

Of course, 2012 is not the end of the world. That Mayan prediction is wrong. The Mayan flood prophecy will be proven false, whether it related to 2012 or not or the Dresden Codex or not.

Whatever the Dresden Codex may be trying to portray (my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect discusses certain views), it is not possible that the end of the world will occur in 2012, Jesus will not return in 2012 (Ronald Weinland was wrong about that for May 27, 2012, see CG-PKG’s Weinland’s Four Month Countdown to Jesus’ Return Wrong), nor can the Great Tribulation begin that early, see Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012 or 2013?; “Growing in Grace International is also wrong, ‘Growing in Grace International’ Wrong: 666 is Not Going to Be Established on July 1, 2012;James Malm is also wrong, see James Malm’s 70% Great Tribulation Chance in 2012 is 100% Wrong).

But the Great tribulation will eventually come and Jesus will eventually return.

Yet, because many have made false predictions about 2012, many will likely use 2012 as an excuse to scoff at and discount all prophecy. According to the Bible, that will be a mistake (2 Peter 3:1-13).
