Can the World End In 2012? The Bible gives us a lot of prophecy (telling beforehand something that will happen specifically) that has happened just as the Bible said. The last prophecy that was fulfilled was that Israel would become a nation again. This happened in the 1940s. The next thing that the Bible predicts is that there will be the Rapture and the Tribulation. Because all of the other things that the Bible predicted have happened, we can be assured that the rest of it will too. The Bible says that after the Rapture and the Tribulation, then Jesus will come back (The Second Coming) and judge the earth. If Jesus came back today and they signed the peace treaty tomorrow (which would start the seven years Tribulation), then the world would not end until the seven years had been completed. Therefore, the world cannot end in 2012.
The Rapture The Rapture is when all of the people who have really accepted Jesus in their heart to be their Savior (that are still alive) will be taken up to be with Jesus in Heaven and won’t die. It also means that the people who were Christians that did die, their graves will be opened and their bodies will be taken up to be reunited with their souls.
No One Knows When the Rapture Will Occur Matthew 24:36–44 (NKJV) “36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” If Jesus doesn’t know, they aren’t going to be able to predict it, so don’t listen to anyone who tries to tell you that they know when the world will end. The point is for you to always be ready, not to wait until that point that you are planning on it happening.
No Worries Matthew 6:34 “34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” If you have your relationship right with God and you are living in a way that pleases Him, you have nothing to worry about.
