2012: The world is over

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

The radio show took a dark turn away from the holiday cheer this morning when Glenn, Pat and Stu spent a few moments discussing one of the most pertinent issues facing, not just America, but the world. No, not the fiscal cliff…the Mayans. In just 12 short days the end of the world could be upon us.

Okay, Glenn and crew aren’t really worried about the Mayans being right, like some around the globe are. Like Glenn pointed out on radio, he saw the movie 2012, so he’s prepared.

“I don’t think it was accurate in the manner in which the world ends,” Pat jokingly pointed out to Glenn.

“It’s a documentary,” Stu quipped.

“I don’t think you could get John Cusack in a movie that wasn’t accurate,” Glenn responded sarcastically.

All joking aside…well most joking aside, there are people preparing for the world ending in twelve(ish) days.

Stu told a story about a man who sells underground shelters. He used to sell about one per month, but now they’re going at about one per day. Even the man selling them plans to go underground from the 21st to the 23rd, just in case.

“You’re telling me that the Mayans are getting it within three days?” Glenn asked. “I mean, how long has this calendar around? I think they got it done. If they say it’s going to end on a Tuesday, they’re not going to be wrong by three days.  Come on.”

That said, if the world ends…is being underground really all that helpful?
 
As laughable as the situation is, Glenn couldn’t help but point out that out of all of the threats facing the country and the world today, NASA has apparently decided to take this one seriously.

NASA did a training film on how the Mayans don’t know what they’re talking about (which you can watch tonight on The Glenn Beck Program).

“Now, I don’t know how much time or money we took away from telling the Muslim world how great they are, but they spent some time and some money at NASA trying to prove to this to the world.”

Not exactly money well spent.

    I will summarize this Mayan prophecy this way concerning ‘the end of the world’ from the words of Lord Jesus himself…

    Mark 13: 32 “But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels which are in Heaven, neither the Son, but my father only.”

    As stated by Lord Jesus himself in the Gospels, none, no mortal being or immortal angel, not even Jesus himself knows when the second coming of the Lord, and thus the end of this world will be…ONLY THE FATHER KNOWS.

    So it written and so it is to be. 

    All who read this are free to make up their own minds, for good or bad, as they choose to do.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    So a question to the viewers here: Given the recent hype of the ‘zombie apocalypse’ by the government for their training scenarios, anyone wish to guess if there will be a staged event on this day by the Feds?

    I”m sorry Snowleopard but how is one any different from the other? I’m quite certain we’ll all be here for Christmas this year but a prophecy foretelling the end of the world is about as likely as the Rapture.

    Maybe the Mayans predicted Obama’s reelection.

    As a Christian Chaplain I hold to the cited scripture above, in that no man, nor anyone save God knows when the second coming of Christ (end of the world time) is to occur.

    The scripture also holds a second truth to it, in my opinion, in that many people assume ‘end of the world’ day will be soon at hand or far in the future, and thus there is ‘no time/a lot of time’ to ‘make peace with God.’

    The fact is each of us are fated to die at some point of time, unless, again as based in Christian teachings, you are among the chosen who still live when Christ comes back.

    As for the ‘Rapture’ I hold it is garbage, it has not been proven by my own studies on the matter in the bible and is a man-made teaching.

    In the end, it comes down to what each of us chooses to believe or not to believe. Thus technically, yes one prophecy is as with another, save as one believes in/upon/etc or not believes in.

    I hope this answers part of your question.

    Hi Snowleopard:

    Off topic, but please, why do you say the chosen are those who remain when Jesus comes back? My mind has been in circles with the called, the chosen, the many, the few, and the remnant. I’d like to know your understanding of this. Thank you so much.

    Only God the Father knows the when.  Be ready whenever it comes, not to worry.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    I will try to clarify:

    The chosen I indicated are the children of God who are still alive after the time of the great tribulation and the last seven plagues that God unleashes upon the earth…they are commonly called in the bible ‘The saints’ though this applies to all of Gods people from the beginning of Adam and Eve to the end of time.

    The remnant is often spoken of as the people of God throughout history who have lived a life of faith and strove to overcome the world with Gods help.

    Mind you, in the case of the remnant, it means those of the old testament who looked forward to the coming of Jesus and unto the cross by faith, and those of the New Testament times (including today) who look back to the cross and to Jesus in heaven by faith as well.

    All have overcome, or shall overcome the world by grace through faith in the redemption and sacrifice of Christ, and by living the life that God will have us to live, with His guidance through Christ.

    For the part of ‘the few’ this most often is associated with the saying of Christ “Many are called, few are chosen.”

    Here God calls out to humanity to accept the offer of repentance and salvation via Christ, and declares that few will live such a life by their choice from first accepting Christ to the last breath they draw in this world.

    Now mind you, in the context of the bible, there are those who claim this means only the 144K of Revelations, and they ignore the portions of the bible which states, “and I beheld 10 thousand times ten thousands and millions upon millions of saints without count.”

    So based on the biblical term of “few chosen” it easily can mean millions upon millions, or even billions of beings given the total number of humanity alive today, and from Adam and Eve.

    I hope this answers some of your question.

    OH!  Glenn, I LOVED the show today!  HA!  Such a relief from watching the depressing real-time movie of Communism overtaking our Nation.  Gets REALLY old, really fast.  I sure enjoyed Stu’s silliness, too.  Made me laugh, which is a rarity nowadays.  -You know, I can honestly say I am SO grateful that I was born and raised free.  What a beautiful thrill its been!  Sure wish my Grandbabies could say that,-  they wont be raised free, now that Obama has effectively destroyed America.  – It was on a slippery slope anyway, and all he had to do was deliver the final stab through the heart.  16 trillion stabs, I should say.  But, today was welcome relief from the oppression.  Thanks! -Oh, as far as the end of the world,-  we wont be getting off THAT easily!  Sorry.  Its going to keep on keeping on…   -Do you notice any similarity between the goofballs panicking about the 21st and the Democratic voters? ALL SO silly! Merry Christmas, everyone!

    Let it end.  If he does, God is doing us a favor.  He made this world in love, made one man and one woman, he gave us the 10 Commandments to live by so our days would be long upon this earth.  He loved us first before we loved him.  The people don’t know the difference between good and bad, they don’t know the difference about forgiveness and love.  All going their own way as though they were going to live forever. You are going to die, get it, sooner or later, when least expected.  Where will you go and be?    If it ends the way this world is right now, it is best.

    It’s going to be exciting to see. How many times the world should have ended? It has been predicted so many times by so many factions, but we’re still here. Even the bible is predicting its end, just to scare the believers. Let’s face it, when we die the world ends for us. Whatever happens thereafter, nobody knows, but we can all make believe in afterlife, whatever that is.

     The Bible doesnt say the world is going to end. Maybe that is how you have understood it when from those who have tried to share something with you, and you interpreted their fear for your destiny to be fear for their own. But if they are believers then they know the Bible is the good news ( definition “gospel”) of salvation from eternal death.

    For all of you who think I favor Republicans, you are wrong.
    I equally blame the republicans and democrats for what has
    happened to America.  All these clowns, men and women
    have voted away America’s future by spending us into
    oblivion.  Our children have to pay the price.  The American
    people also are at fault.  They have been asleep at the
    switch, so to speak.  Too many people do not pay attention
    to what is really happening in their country.  
    I do not believe that anything drastic is going to happen on
    December 21, 2012.  We have been having a gradual shift
    of the earth’s axis for the past 12 years.  Earthquakes,
    volcanic eruptions, severe storms and now droughts, and
    extreme flooding.  Look in your Sunday paper and see the
    page that shows all of the happenings all over the world.
    Merry Christmas

    We can thank God that He is giving us a few more years to get our acts together.The sooth-sayers will continue to set dates, and the believers will continue to fall away, as the Bible predicts. Fear not. God has everything in control.Only those who know the truth and study to show themselves approved will be able to figure out when the end time really starts. It is a mystery to be solved by the called out ones. The ones with a hunger for the truth and the knowledge in His Word.

    This is all nonesence. The Mayans did not believe in “the end of the world” as we see it. The Mayans believed in cycles, this is simply the end of a “long count”, or an end of a cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. Truth is we simply do not know what the Mayans believed would happen, all records have been destroyed or not found yet. There was one incomplete record found, that said “Celebrate 12-21-12″ the rest was destroyed so we dont know what eles it said. Really, this is all hype, and insulting to the Mayans, because we are the ones twisting their believes in our own image to sell books to scare the uninformed. REPEAT: the Mayans did not believe in the end of the world, only in cycles.

    This ia all poppycock and hype, that some, (such as underground shelter salesman) are using to make a buck, in the next few days.  The sad part is, that there are some feeble minded folks, who out of fear, will kill themselves quickly, RATHER than suffer a world collapse and all the pain that goes with it.  Watch the huge spike in suicides that will occur on the 20th, …. the day before, the projected doomsday!

     If I believed it, I would get my hair done, buy a nice dress, and NOT do any housework. But the Mayan’s had dates after the Dec. 21 date too.
     Now the Hopi say all that and more is going to happen around the same time. they say we have two paths we can follow. We can stay on the path we are on, or we can plant and live.
     Now I’m not one to jump out there and say “The sky is falling!”, but I am one that farms and gardens, and puts away for hard times. When times are good, you put away for when those times aren’t so good. We do have cycles, you need to make your hay while the sun shines!

    SnowLeopard is correct about there being no rapture. If all would read the word, Christ tells us what we will see and experience before He returns. If we weren’t going through the tribulation, why would He tell us what we should expect?

    Understand your sense of resignation to the demons of relativism C1234M, especially at those times I fail to fall unto my knees to pray, and instead resolve to fall prey to what seems to be inevitable surrounding darkness.  This has been common throughout the Judeo-Christian existence.  Likely two of the most depressing examples are: one when at the end of period of the Judges the tribes of Jewry all “did what was right in their own eyes”, then, two as history approached the 400 year intertestimental period when Israel was left seemingly abandoned in an evolving state of increasing ritualistic apostasy until Messiah’s First Coming.

    So take heart and whatever comfort knowing believers have always had trials of such affliction to weltschmerz.  And until the play runs its course, an inevitable part of the curse of Fallen Man itself shall be the plight for all who live.  Christians are not and should not consider themselves immune to the effects of the pain, duplicity, evil and chaos of the world.  Our rewards are how we attend to them with Honor and Fielty for His purpose as best as through this ‘glass darkly’ we are permitted to discern them.

    The Mayans world did end when they last said (1519) when the 

    Spaniards “conquered” their world (the Americas) in the sense that the way they used to live literally ended. It is not THE WORLD that is going to end. But for sure it is our way of living, the world as we used to know it that is LITERALLY coming to an end. You can laugh at the Fiscal Cliff, at the economic situation all over Europe, the crisis in the Middle East, the constant wars in all of Latin America..

    Recall that the “Rapture theory” holds that the saints will not go through the tribulation, though Jesus himself declares it to be otherwise.

    In 1 Cor 15 (the entire chapter, but especially v 51-55) and in 1 Thess 4 tells of the dead in Christ being raised from their graves and the living in Christ transformed in an instant ‘in the twinkle of an eye” are transformed.

    This will occur AFTER the tribulation and the seven last plagues, and not before – hence NO RAPTURE.

    Actually it’s kind of disappointing that the Mayan and other doomsday predictions are just paranoid delusions. The world might be a better place if a goodly number of people were to suddenly perish; the really sticky problem is that it has to be the “appropriate people” that perish. So just to make sure and to be helpful, I’ve prepared a rather extensive list with room at the bottom for write-ins. Unfortunately, there seems to be an endless number of write-ins coming out of Washington, DC and the UN as of late.

    As an avid student of the bible, and in particular Eschatology,  the rapture will happen – it is all over the bible if you understand what you’re studying.  in a study of greek and hebrew you will find this mentioned several times.  the greek word harpatzo is mentioned several times – it’s meaning is to be suddenly snatched away or forcibly removed.  you must have a good  handle on greek and hebrew word study in order to get a broader understanding of what the bible says if you want to go into deep subjects such as this.  and as a matter of fact, there is more than one rapture that has already taken place in the bible – where people “were caught up” into heaven.  we have enoch, elijah, ezekiel, jesus christ, john the revelator, Isaiah, etc. even steven himself saw the heavens open up and saw Jesus Christ sitting at the right hand of the Father –  so the notion of the rapture is not far fetched at all – it is a reality – for those who truly understand bible prophecy and have seriously studied this out, it is very plain to see.  In fact, everything God does in the bible is a type and a shadow – a holy convocation (dress rehearsal if you will).  even the sacrifices in the old testament point to Christ – everything in the bible points to Christ.  Christians in the past have suffered horrible persecution – persecution at the hand of man.  HOWEVER, God has made it VERY clear that the church is NOT appointed to God’s wrath.  The tribulation period is NOT man’s wrath, the bible states it is God’s wrath so the church will not be here for that  but the tribulation is not only judgement for a wicked and sinful world, it is in particular against the Jewish people for their ancient sins and unbelief and to bring them back to Him.  The church is not appointed to this wrath – in fact the church is only mentioned in the very beginning of revelation when Jesus shows up and after that, the church is NEVER once mentioned again. if you study the jewish feasts you will see this type and shadow (of many events in the bible) and if you study the jewish wedding it is particularly eye opening in regard to the rapture.  When Jesus says I go to prepare a place for you, he is of course talking to his bride (the church) – this is exactly what the jewish man does for his bride here on earth – he goes to his father’s house, goes away for awhile to prepare a place for his bride.  when he comes back to get his bride, she does not know exactly when but she is always WATCHING.  he comes with a shout and then they are off to the marriage procession.  sound familar? yes, it is a type and shadow – another dress rehearsal for the rapture.  even the story of Noah is a type of rapture – Noah was not appointed to God’s wrath and judgement against a sinful world.  Keep keeping looking up people! it is going to happen and likely soon…the way things are going, it will definitely be our lifetime.

    I agree with you but to me its not the “end of the world” but more to the focus of the “end of civilzation as we know it” this being proven by the condition of our Country and the World. I am a strong believer and I pray every night and day just to make through that day… but with the current situation it is not unreasonable to believe that changes need to be made and soon.. the problem is there is no answer and doesn’t look like we will have any in the near future.. so then where do we go from here? All I can say is continue to pray and try to live a good life… be good to each other and hold fast to your faith.. its the best I can do for me and my family.

  • crazy betty

    snowleopard, respectfully, I’m afraid you do not have a real grasp and understanding of this particular event and/or subject in the bible.  this event WILL NOT occur after the tribulation – otherwise, what is the point?  it doesn’t make any sense.  the bible bears this out all over the place but I don’t have the time to get into a study as deep as this.  either way, it sounds like you believe in Jesus Christ so you too will be raptured whether you believe in it or not.  Jesus will take His bride and as long as you believe in Him, off you will go! int the twinkling of an eye…

    I have to respectfully disagree with you by adding this. There
    is something called a post tribulation Rapture that happens after the facts in tribulation.
     

    Jesus said himself in Matthew 24:29-31

    “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun
    will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall
    from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then will appear in
    heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will
    mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with
    power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet
    call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of
    heaven to the other.

    Paul said here in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 Then we who are
    alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet
    the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.

    Jesus warning all ways be ready for this event. Luke
    21:34-36 “But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with
    dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you
    suddenly like a trap. For it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the
    whole earth. But stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to
    escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the
    Son of Man.”

    In the old testament it is mention as well Daniel 12:1 “At
    that time shall arise Michael, the great prince who has charge of your people.
    And there shall be a time of trouble, such as never has been since there was a
    nation till that time. But at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone
    whose name shall be found written in the book.

    It not written down by name but all indications point out
    that there will be a mass moving of his believers after the tribulation. The proof
    not easy to find but it is in there.

    The “World” per se and as such, yes…The planet on which we reside? Hardly, Hadley. The Lord Jesus Christ has to come back to rule and reign for a Millenium. It will be a different world then. Same planet.

     Sorry again Snowleopard I really wasn’t intending to create a forum for you to have to defend your views on the Rapture, or lack of it. My point was simply this: I find it pretty funny that Mr. Beck can tell everyone to go out and buy guns, food stuffs and convert their money into gold because the world and society are crumbling around them and then openly mocks another culture’s views about the end of the world.

    You can easily find 20 other website that are mocking him in the same fashion. Like you say, it all depends on what we choose to believe. In my opinion we could all benefit if we turned down all the mocking and fear building. If humans can learn to treat the Earth, and each other, with respect we’ll all be here a good long while. I won’t be buying a gun anytime soon.

    We know that the end of the world will not be Dec 21, 2012 as Scriptures tells us that no one knows the day nor the hour.  However  in 2nd Kings chapter 20 , King Hezekiah was very ill.  He asked Isaiah what the sign would be that he was healed.   Isaiah said the Creator would bring the shadow 10 degrees backword.  From my understanding, this is when we went to a 365+ day year.  Could it be possible that something could happen that would take us back to the 360 day year which prophecy is based on.

     Rev 6:9-11 show you the people who have been killed for the word of God and the Christ and were told to wait for a little season until the rest of their fellowservants and their brethren  should be killed like they were should be fulfilled.
    Rev 7:9-17 people who came out of the great tribulation and washed their robes in the Blood of the Lamb
    Rev 12:9-17 the dragon persecutes the woman (israel) that’s all descendants of the 12 tribes who are christians and they overcame the dragon by the Blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony and they loved not their lives unto the death
    The dragon was wroth with the woman and went to make war with the remnant of her seed which keep the commandments of God  and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.  God was very clear when He took one of His servants and you seem to forget that Christ comes here to Earth and He rules with a rod of iron for 1 thousand years.  When His Feet touch the Earth we will be changed in the twinkling of an eye to our spiritual bodies (those who are alive) We cannot see Christ of God in our mortal bodies.  Read the whole chapter, better, read the whole book

    Rev 2:8-10 especially v10
    Rev 3:8-1 talking about the same thing
    when the devil throw us in to prison and we are in front of him or his army we do not speak but we let the Holy Spirit speak, we do not have the power to fight against principalities, only God and the Christ have the power. This is the hour of Temptation that God will keep us from, this is not our battle is His, our job is to stay faithful to death if that is what it takes, to live forever with the Lamb of God

     To be absent from this body is to be present with the Lord. The moment our mortal body dies our spiritual body goes back to the Father. The dead ARE with Christ. When Christ comes back to Earth and His feet touches the earth we who are alive will change into Spiritual Bodies because our mortal bodies cannot see God or Christ and Christ will be here on Earth for one thousand years and He will rule with a rule of iron and at the end of the one thousand years the devil will be back on Earth to battle again and pick up a few beings (which he does believe it or not) but God takes care of him rapidly and that will bring the White Throne Judgement by God and the 2nd death which is the death of the Spirit

    I agree Sam.  For what good is Prophecy if not to warn us to prepare!!! &   Not only Spiritually but in all things (survival etc)

    I think the Mayan prediction is totally demonic because their religious activities included sacrificing babies to their gods.  I do not think Dec 21st is the end of the world in the literal sense…but it sure is close to the beginning of sorrows which will bring about the Great Tribulation and mass destruction.

    We can see things shaping up in the middle east and Israel right now to indicate the antichrist and war in the middle east and the beginning of the New World Order has definitely approached a whole new level of reality and this year could be the kickoff.

    When will the bride have the marriage feast of the lamb?  Here on earth?  Also, when will there be that scene in heaven were the 24 elders are around the throne and those who have come out of the Great Trib are also in this gathering?  It appears to be a scene in heaven.  It also says we are going to meet the Lord in the air.  How can that be if we simply stay on the earth.  People wlll get born again during the Great Trib due to the devastation they will be coming to God by the 1000′s.  Also, there was another resurrection in Matt 27:52″ And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose.”  This was when Jesus resurrected the first time and the Old Testament saints in Abraham’s bosom were resurrected.  So, in other words, there are a lot of resurrections.  So why can ‘t we be raptured which is another word for resurrrection before the Great Trib?

    I Thess 4:16-17 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.
    After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

    Then we come back with him to rule and reign on the earth when he comes back to judge the earth and set up his kingdom, just as the Old Testament saints will also be coming back with him.
