First Created 5/26/2012
When this movie first came out I decided not to watch it but then I learned that watching it would probably be a good thing. You see, every lie contains a shred of truth. Be it body language, tone of voice, or simply buried in the lie itself. One truth of this movie was about the Mayan calendar. The Mayans did exist and this calendar does exist. Even I have known about it for over 16 years. Funny how people don’t take notice until the day gets closer. However, the movie being based on this calendar did not give much detail about it. I do not believe the world will end in 2012 as some claim this calendar predicts. Why? Because the bible tells me so. We are sitting in 2010. That gives us only 2 years. God said there would be 3 1/2 years of tribulation with the antichrist as ruler then the end will come. Those who believe this Mayan scenario haven’t been reading their bible. But, going by what I know, in 2012 there are going to be big changes for this world. 2012 will not be the end. I believe it will be the beginning.
One lie that bothers me about this movie, and others like it, is the act of preservation, or salvation if you will, of the human race that it portrays. In this particular movie those who paid a billion euro (I find that interesting) got a ticket to be saved on a big ship. Those who read their bible and talk to God know that at the end of this world nothing will be left to preserve. Nothing! No big ship made by man’s hands will save you. No amount of money you pay will save you. No matter where you go, no matter where you hide, no matter who you are. If you are left on this earth when that day happens you will burn. This earth has been reserved for fire. Just as in Noah’s day it was flooded with water, this earth will be flooded with fire. Movies like this are Satan’s way of giving a false hope that we can save ourselves with our great industrial knowledge and scientific know-how. That is the biggest lie in this type of movie. We can not save ourselves. If you try, you will fail.
There will be an end of this world. Will it play out like the movies have made it to be? I don’t think so. I know it will be much worse. But, I do not fear it. Remember, every lie has a shred of truth. There is a price to pay and there is a rescue ship for your salvation. That price was paid along time ago and now your ship is waiting for you to confirm that payment.
Romans 5:8-10 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
John 3:15-17 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
