Tribulation December 21st 2012

I hope this doesn't sound silly but after seeing something on tv today I'm wondering: how likely is it that the Tribulation will begin December 21st of this year? What do you all think?

Brother Peter, I thank you for your prayers and I will pray for you also. I read about what you said about your former wife. I am so sorry you experience what you did, and sorry she was so mixed up. You know things can change in our lives in an instant. Our faith in Christ is our Strength and the unity of the body in Christ. Blessings to you brother and family.
---Mark_V. on 7/16/12

Mark_V: Will keep praying for you, brother! God will be with you!
---Peter on 7/14/12

I want to thank Peter, Mary, Darline and others for their well wishes and blessings. It has been hard the last few days. God has blessed me with such wonderful people of the household of Christ, in my life, and I thank Him so much for everything.
---Mark_V. on 7/11/12

MarkV: May God be always be with you in your time of loss of your half-sister, and with all the other people grieving with you

---Peter on 7/10/12

Mark V I'm so sorry you lost your sister. I don't have any so I can't relate to how that feels but it must be like having a piece of you heart removed. God be with you and your family. I'm praying.
---Darlene_1 on 7/10/12

Mary, thank you so very much. Her family will have services for her this morning. I will dearly miss her. I suppose as I got older, I can see how fracial our bodies are. They are supernaturally formed by God and are so complicated yet so easy can we lose it. One day I will see her again, and that is my hope. Again thanks, you have also gone through a lot, peace to all of you and blessings to everyone. The weather is hurting so many in most states, keep safe,
---Mark_V. on 7/10/12

Hi, I am sooooo very sorry about your sister Mark V, you've had some terrible losses and my heart goes out to you. May God bless you even in this time, hugs, Mary
---Mary on 7/9/12

We as Christians and lovers of God have no reason to fear what may happen on this earth at any time. We know we may see tribulations but God is with us to lend his strength to face what ever comes and whatever we may have to go through whether it be universal or personal. I would not want the world to end because I have lost loved ones. I hear so many say end it now,come Lord Jesus,and I pray oh God please don't come yet,save my loved ones. The Bible says its God's will that none should perish but it is man's self will which removes him from God's hand. I hope,they hear the voice of God,all who turn a deaf ear to him and let the light of Christ shine in the heart of all who are in darkness.
---Darlene_1 on 7/9/12

Mary, what scares most is our own death. Anyone can go in the next minute. And thinking of it scares many. Some because they won't get to say goodbye, others because they don't want to suffer. But we all have to die. That is just the way it is. We cannot escape death. One thing I really never wanted to experience was, losing a child. I hope I'm gone before anything happens to them.
I just lost a half-sister, on thursday morning. She was so wonderful to me. Always showing the love of Christ to everyone. Peace I leave you.
---Mark_V. on 7/9/12

Blogger96, let me answer you better then I did before. My former wife died in 98, and after five years I remarried. I hope that helps you.

Mary, what I think really scares believers about the end times is the families, those who they believe are not saved. I worried alot about my sister because she was a Jehovah Witness. And since we don't know for sure who is going to be saved, we worry about those who are alive now. Also just thinking of the terrible things that are going to happen makes many scared. Every believer should make sure of their own salvation. We are instructed to make our salvation sure. Because no one knows the last time we will take our last breath of air.
---Mark_V. on 7/7/12

Blogger96, I really do not know how you can be confuse when it is pretty simple. I had a wife that died, and now I have a wife. You don't have to be sorry, unless you are sorry my wife died, then thank you for saying that. I loved her so very much, that is why I thank you.
---Mark_V. on 7/7/12

Hi Mark V, I believe I agree with you, thank you. Sorry about the worried niece though, it's sad. I know excessive fear in my own life in different areas and I truly hope and pray your niece can overcome hers. God bless :)
---Mary on 7/6/12

//So every day when she calls my wife, she wants to know more about the end times//---markv

Im sorry mark, but I thought your wife had passed away. Im a little confused here
---Blogger9680 on 7/6/12

Mary, I don't believe there is any Truth that on December 21st the tribulation will start. I believe there is just so many books and movies concerning the end times, that people are very worried. My niece has three small children and she is so worried because of them. So every day when she calls my wife, she wants to know more about the end times. She has trouble working, and she is a great Christian but the children worry her so much. She believes Obama is the Antichrist because of all that is happening in this country. She read somewhere that Obama was promoting some kind of a chip to put on people's hands and she thinks it's the mark of the Antichrist, and she said she will refuse to take it.
---Mark_V. on 7/6/12

Chris, I know you are correct in what you say. I have watched many shows that clearly looks like at any moment things could really change for the worse. What really surprises me is that we haven't ended our life on earth seeing how many ways we could. First, the weapons so many countries have, germs we have developed for war could get out, volcano's exploding, a complete collapes of our ecomony, no one working, no food, and we are so depended on so many things, Satelites, energy power. two planes hitting the towers stopped everything in the US. Yes, we can kill ourselves at any time. It is easiar now to end it then ever before. We are in a mess now all over the world, all because bankers decided to steal all the money because of greed.
---Mark_V. on 7/2/12

What if the Teaching was The Body is The Temple? Wherever there is a 'Dead' Body, there the Vultures will gather. Sitting in The Temple...

For God Is The God of The Living, and not of the dead.

Thank you Mark.

The cloud I mentioned can be checked on Nasa. It has warmed the solar system since 1970.
The problem we face is with our own global warming. Because it is not finding it so easy to disipate.

Since then natural disasters have increased substantially. Due to the change in temp.
The Euphrates is drying up, it has shrank back to half its size, much of it through industrial use.
The situation we now have is man made. Through our mis-use of God's gifts.
Our sin.
Maybe we are getting a wake up call to get our house in order or else.
Will we listen?
---chris on 5/12/12

Chris, I believe that many are wondering in this age if the time is near or not. It is common among so many Christians since they are the only one's that know Scripture and believe the time will come, but don't know when.
I myself believe that it is no worse today then it was in the early history of the church. We just have more people now. Paganism, heathenism were so popular then. The whole towns worshipped idols. Now we have many who worship idols but there is so many people today that you cannot tell how many they are. In the America's, Mexico, Central and South America and the Islands like Haiti and others, paganism grows wild. quakes and stuff like that has happened everywhere at every point in time.
---Mark_V. on 5/12/12

Fair answer Mark Thank you.

The Chilean earthquake moved the world 4"on its axis.
The Japanese earthquake caused nuclear spillage into the rivers and Pacific.
Nasa admitted earlier this year there is a a hole 4x times the size of earth in our magnetic shield. Which helps limit solar storm damage.
We see family fighting family in middle east.
It was really to get comment from people, on how they feel.
Some feel we are in end times and others don't. Not necessarily in 2012.
I asked questions did not state a belief.
---chris on 5/11/12

But are these the signs of Revelation? Or are they un-connected.
---chris on 5/11/12

I do not remember seeing these in events in the newspaper:

1/3 of all trees burned
1/3 of all the oceans turned to blood
1/3 of all daylight, stars, and moon removed
Giant locus-like creatures stinging people for five months
1/3 of all mankind killed

Every living thing in the oceans killed
The Euphrates river dried up
Sun so hot everywhere it scorches people
100 lb. hailstones

---aka on 5/11/12

What if you believe Revelation is to come. That it is already being unfolded quietly like a thief in the night.
Don't just look at America or the Middle East. Look at the world.
Are any of the signs there?
Yes several but are they all coincidence?
The world has moved, the waters have been turned bitter, The heavens have been rolled back. Famine,flood and disaster have been let loose on the world.
But are these the signs of Revelation? Or are they un-connected.
---chris on 5/11/12

Wait a minute! I thought the world was to end on that date. I can't wait until Dec 22 so all this nonsense will stop.

Actually, the Tribulation started when Obama was elected.

---jerry6593 on 5/11/12

As christians, we need not worry.

But for the rest of the people, and the weak christians, their behavior toward the biblical prophesies that are soon to envelop the world will turn their backs against God and turn, instead, to the Mayans, Nostredame, et al.

Yes the Mayan calender thing. Which actually means a new cycle. We line up with the sun as we do every year and every eleventh year the sun's magnetic pole flips which is this year 23 12 2012
We have entered a particle cloud. Which will take 2000 years to pass through. The last time we came out of it was 2000 years ago.
This is said to be responsible for the increase in natural disasters and global warming. It is a natural process which is part of God's universe.
Iran will not nuke Jerusalem, it is the holy city of Islam.
No-one knows when.

Rhonda, your answer that 'no one knows the hour' is very true. Anyone giving a time, is a fool for doing so. While many people today are wondering if the time is close, they have been wondering for 2,000 years. It is the mind of man that wants to know how close the time is. Some just like to talk about the subject. The reason many write books concerning the end times.
---Mark_V. on 3/15/12

I've been asking that about you for some time, Rhonda.

Many times I've quoted how the Bible disagrees with what you say.

well Cluny that's too bad I quote from Holy Scripture you should give it a read sometime ...if you did you would find the Scriptures I share are the ones from the very pages of Holy Scripture

you see GODS precious TRUTH doesn't change

curious thing though Cluny - YOU NEVER actually quote FROM Holy Scripture

although you have a whole LOT of empty words ABOUT Holy Scripture

big difference

\\maybe the question you should be asking yourself is WHY do I REJECT GODS Holy Word???\\

The peace agreement must have two things. 1) settle the despite of the west bank of Israel (biblically the land of Judah/Samaria since Jesus says to those in Judah to run for there lives and 2) settle the dispute on the temple mount, Rev 11:1-2 John is told to measure the temple but do not measure the outer court for it is given to the Gentiles. We know that there has to be a Jewish temple because that is where the Antichrist will claim to be God and cause the abomination of desolation 2 Thes 2:1-4, Dan 9:27
---B.J. on 3/10/12

In Daniel 9:27 it states that there will be a peace agreement that must be made to start off the final 7 yrs. The tribulation does not start until a event called the abomination of desolation at the 3 1/2 yr mark. Jesus spoke of this in Matthew 24:15 and said when those in Judah see this they should run, not before. The United Nations have imposed a deadline on Israel and palentine to have a peace agreement by Dec 2012 if meet this would start the final 7 yrs
---B.J. on 3/10/12

The Bible does point out many signs of the Tribulation, but it doesn't give any details about WHEN it will be, other than certan signs. But by and large, we haven't seen any major ones yet (a falling star destroying 1/3 of the life on the planet, a single charismatic character ruling the whole world and forbidding all commerce except in his name, a major economic power on seven hills being destroyed, etc.)

every date setter has been wrong!!! EVERY date setter from the time of Christ until today and beyond will be wrong!!!

didn't we get enough junk last year with the May 2011 date ...then when that day passed it was rescheduled to October 2011 ...and when that day passed we didn't hear from that looney-bin again!!

Christ STATED NO MAN knows the hour

Christ STATED HE does not know the hour only The Father in Heaven knows

maybe the question you should be asking yourself is WHY do I REJECT GODS Holy Word???

WHY do I REJECT HIM when HE states NO MAN KNOWS???

Instead of hanging on the words of quacks who do not have the Word of GOD get into reading Gods Holy Word

Truly, truly I say to you, that in the last days Satan will challenge the Most High God, saying, "Give to me only a few moments, and I will turn easily against you every man and woman and child upon the earth." And Jesus will say to Satan, "Here, I grant to you five moments, which is as three and one half years upon the earth. And afterward the judgment."
The Tribulation:
Mt.24:4-15, 21-27, 36-44+
Mk.13:5-14, 19-23, 32-37+
Lk.21:8-19, 20,24,34-36+
Jn.15:18-21 and 16:2-4,33 and 17:9,10,14-16+
I Thes.5:2-11+
II Thes.2:3-12+
II Tm.3:1-9 and 4:3,4+
II Pt.2:1-3,10-22 and 3:3-14+
Rv.11 and Rv.13:15-18.

The Tribulation is supposed to be conditions SO HORRIBLE that, if they hadn't been cut short, all life would be extinguished.

I don't know about some parts of the world, but in most parts of the world, people have food, cars, cell phones - even in third world countries.

Now, when we get to conditions like those mentioned in Revelation that wipe out 1/3 of the earth's population (4.6 billion dead), one might be in a position to talk about tribulation. But compared to that, our life here is a cakewalk.

We were shocked by 9/11, but the Holocaust was over 1000 times worse, as were Stalin's starving the Ukraine, and Pol Pot's Killing Fields. Yet the tribulation will be A THOUSAND TIMES WORSE than that!
---StrongAxe on 3/8/12

I believe that the world is ALREADY going through the Tribulation. It's just that the world probably isn't experiencing the Worst of it. Yet.

As other bloggers have stated, the Mayan calendar involved Cycles. The same goes for GOD permitting both Good, and Bad, times as He attempts to get people to turn back to Him.

Only GOD knows when the world will end. And when the world does end, it will be Too Late for unbelievers.

December 21, 2012 has become a great marketing tool for: Financial Planners, Movies, etc.

For believers, it will be just another day. An even better day if Jesus Christ has returned. We need to be prepared -- at all times -- for his return!
---Sag on 3/7/12

History cannel said Mayan Indians said world would end dec. 21, 2012. mayans forgot they were created by God Almighty. If God didn't tell Jesus, do you think he would tell mayans before He told His own Son Jesus ? Bible says no man knows but God Himself. He did it to counter out speculation of predictions !
---Marlon on 3/7/12

You didn't give enough information, (i.e., who said it, what documentation did they give to prove the date -not just give an opinion, and what documentation source did they give. Without knowing this all I can state is they are probably wrong.

Will the world end in 2012?

Perhaps our Adventists friends will wish to make this prediction and if they it fails to come about, they can always say that Jesus did something else in the heavenly realm and that they were mistaken as to the location of the event. They can always convolute scripture to say that they were right.

They did that back in 1847 and even today there are people that have been duped into believing this kind of thing.

Starting at 0 AD
this year is 2012
365 days in a year
Jesus on earth 33 years

(1/((2012-33)*356))*100 = 0.00014% I personally do not think the Tribulation is a set time period but more of a cycle of events similiar to the change of seasons. Revelation is written as a cycle. The world is destroyed many times in the book of Revelation from different view points.

It can be a decoy to get our attention away from where we belong.

Jesus says, "be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect." (in Matthew 24:44) If we are ready, at any time, it won't matter when it comes. We will be busy with obeying our Father in the ruling of His peace in our hearts > Colossians 3:15.

2 Peter 3:14 says, "Therefore beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless." Ready means we are in God's peace obeying Him. "for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God." (James 1:20)
---Bill_willa6989 on 3/7/12

Mary the Mayans wrote in blocks of time,or cycles. Just because their writing ended on December 21,2012 doesn't mean the world will end just that probably that was the end of that cycle and they didn't begin another for whatever reason. Trish is right,the Bible does say no man knows that time. Especially not non-christian pagans who offered human sacrifice. If God had given the time to anyone it would have been Christians and then it would have to line up with the writen Word of God to be true. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/7/12

Mary when I came to the end of my previous answer I felt a heaviness come upon my heart,so I removed the last line thinking I shouldn't put it on. The heaviness persisted and knowing God has often given this to me to pray for others I prayed for all I could think of. Then I thought this, Fear not Princess Child of the King for your Father covers you over and hides you with his wings,as a mother hen does for her chicks,and keeps you in love. God Bless
