Question? if the bible says no one will no the day or hour that God will return not even Jesus why do so many people say the world is ending in 2012.. this is a really serious question to me because yes I am a Christain I want to see God.. but I also want to watch my babies grow up.. and all of this scares me very badly... I have seriously stayed up at night crying over this issue because I am so afraid... I don't want to be here on earth when it ends because it is all very scary.....and I don't want to watch my children die.. that is the worst.. can someone ease my mind please? I am horrified and scared and I don't know how to react about it?

I assure you, the world is not going to end in 2012. If there's a rapture, you and your family might be raptured sometime during that year, but we're not going to know when the rapture will happen until it does, if it does. If there is a rapture and you are indeed a Christian, you and your Christian family will be snatched from the earth to be forever with the Lord; but if you're not a Christian, you'll have to go through the 7 year tribulation period. That will be an extremely difficult time on the earth, but people will still have the opportunity to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. You'll be persecuted far more than anything done today, but if you're faithful to Christ, you'll receive a special reward beyond just eternal salvation. After the tribulation period, Jesus will return to earth to set up His millennium kingdom which means He'll be ruling on earth for 1000 years before the final battle between Jesus and Satan takes place. After Jesus wins this war, Satan will be thrown into either the lake of fire or the bottomless pit (I'm not sure which) forevermore.

Thank you I must admit I do have trouble reading the Bible or more or less understanding because it is worded so funny to me... and then you have the History channel that just confuses the heck out of me... I don't know but thank you for your kind words and help... but these words make you wonder if maybe I am a good enough christian.. I don't know I hope I am I have my moments but I mean well and pray everynight for forgiveness and thankfulness

Every time that people mention this coming, I will refer them to what the Bible truly says. No one but the father in Heaven knows, not even Jesus Himself. I don't know why people are making all of these assumptions when they don't really know themselves. People need to stop with all of these assumptions. If no one knows, then how can we all know? And if only God knows, and not even Jesus nor the angels, then how in the world can humans on earth know too?? That is why I don't believe this rumor when I hear of it.

First of all, calm down, There is no proof that the world will end in 2012. The Mayan calendar only went to 2012. It seems to me that Mayans are not Christians so therefore are not waiting for Jesus Christ.

If these things worry you, stay away from the news. The conspiracy theories out there could drive anybody to a break down.

Lilly, As a Christian you surely know that God has not given you a spirit of fear, so this fear you're suffering is from Satan and you need to resist him so he will flee from you. Jesus will come again before there's any destruction to the earth and the return of Christ should be something every Christian should be looking forward to.

the things about 2012 are things based on scientific things not on GOD!! I use to think aobut this question as well then I started reading deep in my bible and I got the understanding that God's facts and scientific facts are 2 totally different things because man doesn't know the day or the hour no matter how bad they thing they know it.. they really honestly don't know. so don't let it scare you just truse GOD!! the man with a plan

What scientific "facts" point to 2012 as being the ned of the world? Because I have seen no facts. Its all just media sensationalism.

Calm down. The 2012 prediction of the world's end is a HOAX. Perhaps I should enlighten you with a history of predictions claiming the end of the world on date:_____ and how this 2012 thing came about. Here go to this site for a history of failed end of world predictions: http://www.abhota.info/end1.htm And go to this site for the reasons behind the 2012 hoax: http://www.2012hoax.org You can't believe everything that people say. You even know that "no one will know the day or hour that god will..." Hopefully , now you can resume your happy life.

I don't think anyone can predict this..like you said "no one knows the day nor hour" I don't even think the great man Jesus himself knows the answer to that question...if that was the case-we'd be more prepared right?

You can read Matthew 24 &25 about the end of the World. Then relax because only God will know the time. But when God comes the Bible tells us that those in Christ will be taken first. You are a Christian, you have accepted Jesus as Lord And Savior. Continue to live in Him.(Colossians 2:6) To trust in Him. Forget the hoax's of prediction. Even the verses in Matthew 24 warn us of false Christ coming. Jesus tells us over and over to BE READY.... Some other verses you might like about the 2nd coming of Christ and the time is I Thessalonians4:13-18; 2 Thessalonians 2 This is another assurance that noone knows when!!! The next time you are 'overcome' with this fear try these verses: Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, presenet your requests to God. Colossians3:15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 1Peter5:6&7 Humble, yourselves, therefore, under God's mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your ANXIETY on him becasue he cares for you. If I can be of more help let me know.

I think what you need is closure in knowing when this is suppose to take place and you're not getting that. Nobody really knows but they are going by the Myan's calender. I think this subject is overhyped. It's just overpublicized and more people are continuing to make tv shows and talk about it. I guess the only way to know if it's going to happen is just wait and see... In the bible you're right though, if Jesus doesn't know when he is suppose to return, then don't take anything you see on tv too serious. Take care

I say you just trust in God and let all these other "TALKERS" do what ever they want to. It is just another of man's stupid ideas that will be proven stupid in 2012 and then you will hear no more about it. Remember this; To show fear of something like this is to show a lack of faith in God. Put it in God's hands because you can't do anything about it anyway. Art

You are correct, no one knows the day or hour, not even Jesus. We have no idea, at best it is all guesses. But I always know when someone says they know when it will end, they are certainly wrong. So I know we have until at least 2013! Because I think God is waiting just to show us how dumb we are!

As you pointed out, Jesus said no one knows when it will be except God. So there is no way to know if it will be 2012 or not. I say, go ahead and look forward to watching your babies grow up. If the end comes, welcome it to see God. But don't be afraid over the end. For all we know, it could be another 2000 years away.
