What Do Christians Say About 2012 and the Mayan Calendar End of the World Prophecy?

by Jack Wellman on May 26, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

By now  you probably have heard about the Mayan Calendar and the prediction or prophecy of the end of the world on December 21st, 2012.  Many others have seen the movie 2012 which predicts the end of the world as we know it.  What do most Christians think of this prediction?  What do most non-believers think of it?  What do the Mayan’s themselves believe about it?  Is there any shred of truth to the prediction or prophecy of the end of the world according to the Mayan Calendar?  Should we be stockpiling supplies in advance of this alleged prophecy?

The Mayan Calendar

This issue has been a frequent “water cooler” topic of conversation for many of my co-workers.  Of those that spoke about the movie 2012, the majority were less concerned about the movie than they were with the prediction of the Mayan Calendar.  The calendar, contrary to popular belief, is somewhat like the calendar that we use today.  Our calendar runs out on December 31st every year but no one sees it as a prediction of the end of the world.  The Mayan Calendar is cyclical too.  The ancient Mayan Calendar was no different from any calendar.  It was good for only a set period of time.  It was simply based upon a set number of days and was intended to keep a record of a collection of days for each year.

The way the ancient Mayans measured time was much different than the way that we do today.  They used centuries instead of years but their intent was not to match the end of their calendar with the end of time as they knew it.  Much of what the movie 2012 is based upon is not anything about the Mayan’s beliefs at all, but is a fictitious scenario constructed from Western imaginations.  The Mayan’s descendants do not use the ancient calendar anymore. They use the same calendar that most of the world uses and like the one that we use today.  The Mayan Calendar started in 3135 B.C., their time, and it was not calibrated with the present calendar we use today, called the Gregorian calendar.

What Do the Mayans Say?

Modern day ancestors of the Mayans, when interviewed about December 21st, 2012, had no clue about any significance of that date.  When local reporters went to the modern day descendants of the Mayans and asked them what they thought of that date or the Mayan Calendar prediction of doom for 2012, they didn’t have a clue about it.  In fact, they could not have cared less.  The only thing that they were concerned about was having enough rain this year for their crops.

The Mayans are not concerned and know nothing about nor are concerned in any way about some alleged prediction of the end of the world.  No archeological evidence has ever been unearthed to validate this myth of the Mayan Calendar’s prediction doom on December 21st, 2012.  If you bring up the end-of-the-world topic of the Mayan’s 2012 calendar with the local Mayan elder, Chile Pixtun, he is completely puzzled by it.  So too are the local indigenous tribes of the Guatemalan Apoloinaria who are the direct descendents of the Mayan Indians.  Mayor Pixtun will be the first to say that these doomsday myths are not from his own culture but must be from Western imaginations.

Is The Earth Doomed?

This reminds me somewhat of the 2YK scare where everyone thought that the world’s computers would not be able to handle all the “zeroes” when the calendar turned to the year two thousand.  They believed that since computers were necessary for the Stock Exchange, airlines, businesses, banks, and industries that all the computers crashing would produce wide-spread chaos and food shortages.  That concern caused many to buy tons of dry goods, water purifiers, and 55-gallon drums for storage of their supplies.  They were stocking up on clothing, firewood, and many other every day staples.  It turned out to be absolutely nothing at all.

No one knows the day when Christ will return (Matt. 24:43, Luke 12:39).  Not the Mayan Calendar, not any preacher or pastor who claims to know but only the Father in heaven. If someone predicts the coming of Christ, you can know for a fact that you are listening to a false prophet.  Mark 13:32 says, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.“  Even the Bible says nothing about the end of the world. It describes an end of the age and a new heaven and a new earth but Ecclesiastes 1:4 says “Generations come and generations go, but the earth remains forever.”  Revelation 1:2 tells us that the Holy City, Jerusalem, will descend out of heaven and comes down to the earth.

The Importance of 2012

Anyone that has or ever will ask me about 2012 is an opportunity to show them the real 2012 to be concerned about that is neither legend nor myth.  If there is any 2012 that I would tell them to think about in a serious manner it would be, ironically, Revelation 20:12 which says, “And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which is the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the books.”  Revelation 20:12 speaks of the Great White Throne Judgment in which those who are not Jesus Christ’s own will be judged for eternity.

If you were to die today and are not found written in the book of life, then truly you do have something to worry about; and for all eternity.  “Blessed and holy are those who share in the first resurrection. The second death has no power over them, but they will be priests of God and of Christ and will reign with him” (Rev. 20:6).  Revelation 3:5 is where your name, this very day, can be written down in the book of life and here is what will be said of you, “The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white. I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life, but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.” I pray this is so.

Hi Jack,

Never have the Mayan predicted the ‘End of the world’, The Mayan calendar marks the end of a 5,126 year old cycle which is actually a rare cosmic alignment between our sun, earth and the galactic centre of the Universe, the Mayan studied the sky’s… this event is set to take place this Dec 21, because people have been so quick to listen to the ‘media’ and ‘Hollywood’ God is being completely lost in all the ‘fear’ or ‘dismissal’ of this. This cosmic occurrence (much like the Moon effects our tides) will be effecting The state of our being, our conciousness, causing us to awake and be aware.
Supernatural signs, wonders and miracles will increase.
Mass deliverance and salvation will break out in cities and regions.
Places that were once dead in sin will spring forth in revival.
Spread the good news of Christ! We are coming into a Golden Age, I’m excited to see where Christ is taking us, Heaven on earth as it is in heaven, love and unity!
God Bless
Caroline.

Hello Amber. Thank you for your question. Let me reassure you that for anyone that has placed their trust in Christ, they have no reason to fear. This “Mayan myth” is just that. A myth. God is real and His promises are sure, yes, and amen! Read John 6:37, John 10:28-29 and Romans 10:9-13 and see how you can be certain that none of those that place their trust in Christ have any need to fear because God can not lie, His Word is true, and nothing can change for those who have trusted in Christ Jesus. Just read these verses, Romans 8:30-39, “If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?As it is written:

“For your sake we face death all day long;
we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.”

No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Hello Amber. I just wanted to teell u I had asked my pastor the same question although I already have children but my sister does not who is 20 yrs old now. My question to him was am I being selfish to hope that the rapture doesn’t take place until I watch my boys grow up or see grandchildren of my own. His response was with another question: wouldn’t u want your boys to go with the rapture now with them being innocent and pure babes (they’re two boys who are 8 months old and 2 yrs old) than for them to grrow up and go out into the world to sin and have the possibility of going to hell? That struck a nerve and has had me looking for the return of Christ in a much better outlook. And as for my sister he said just to prayy for her that she comes to know our Lord and Savior and realize that what God has in store for us in Heaven is so much better than anything we could possibly have on earth. I love Jesus more than I do my boys and even as I type that I’m smiling because that’s the kind of relationship I want to have with the one who died to save me from my sins. I will pray for you and I hope that I have helped u or others. Thank you and God bless!!!

Thank you so much for posting this. I felt sad thinking about people wanting to stay in a sin-filled world instead of living with Christ, especially people who say they are Christians. I admit I had thought very briefly while I was pregnant that I might miss the experience of having my baby had the rapture occurred before his delivery, but the thought was very short-lived when I thought about the chance to be saved. We must hope and pray he comes soon and until then, we must win as many people to him as possible, so they don’t suffer eternally for turning away their chance of everlasting life.

There were Greek and Roman myths and Gods/Godesses and there were Mayan Gods/Goddesses with myths surrounding them as well. Ancient Mayans prayed, worshipped and sacrificed to many Gods. Just like the Greeks and Romans, the Mayans studied their natural surroundings–the earth, seasons, stars, sun, moon, etc. They tried to make sense of this and created myths about Gods (sun Gods, etc) to try and explain why the things they saw in nature occurred.

The ten commandments state clearly that a Christian should not make carved images, worship false idols or have any other God. So, I guess my point is….Why would a Christian believe in the Mayan calendar in a biblical sense at all. It was not based on Christianity or the bible.

I’m glad you chose to use this verse as it is quite clear. Mark 13:32 says, “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.“

Only the Father knows. Not the Mayans. Not Google bot. Not any pastor.

So…what to do? Seek out the Lord and be saved. Live a good life according to what the bible teaches and to do that you must surround yourself with good Christians and a good church.

Hi Amber. This website which I checked out is so full of holes like swiss cheese. We have a Greek name for their heresy…its called “bologna”. There is so much error in it. Why fear when we can believe God and His Word, the Bible, and human myths can not be trusted. These “experts” are legends all right…legends in their own minds and not real ones. Do you realize the website’s name actually predicted doomsday on its link….judgmentday2011? Nope…wrong again. Not to worry. It’s a false teacher of the Devil.

The bible clearly states that no man knows the day or the hour of Jesus return, but doesnt it also say at the end of an age.. According to the Mayan calander December 21, 2012 marks the end of one age and the beginning of a new one. Could this possible mean Jesus is going to return on that day?

Jack Wellman December 15, 2012 at 2:39 pm

The Mayan calendar myth of the end of the world is false. They could not even predict their own end of their civilization so why should we worry that they can predict the end of the world? No way. Since Jesus said that no one knows the day or the hour of His return, this means that this included Dec 21, 2012.

Hello everyone. I too am afraid of the whole mayan calender thing. I am 28 with my first child. A 6mnth old boy. And i am seeking christ. Not because I think the world is gonna end but I feel like I am missing something in my life. I just recently moved to arizona and I’m ready to make a change for me and my lil boy. I have asked christ to come into my heart and life. I prayed and prayed n read my bible. But the problem is is that I don’t feel any different. I want to feel that love and I wanna have that undenying faith I used to hear my granny talk about. Did I do something wrong or does god not want me? What else can I do to have and feel him in me. I’m very confused and lost and I wanna give my life to christ

No church is perfect and if you find one, don’t join it..you’ll ruin it. Kayla, I am not perfect and neither are you or anyone but that doesn’t give us permission to call churches judgmental. I hate to see you outside of the Sheepfold of the Great Shepherd and being a lone ranger Christian. I know that Jesus said that He would build His church and the gates of hell will not prevail against is so you are saying the church is not necessary when Jesus said He would build and and nothing would stop it?

Read all of Hebrews 10 and especially verse 24-25, “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” and tell me that you don’t believe this Scripture and is so, why?

The New Testament is primarily letters to churches and not to single, lone, individual members. How can you come together to worship on Sunday’s to fulfill Jesus’ promise, else how could we live out Romans 12 and 1 Cor 13?

I believe God is knowable and you can find Him anywhere but you can know Him more deeply at a local church that is Bible-believing and Christ-elevating. If you want to lead your children in the right direction Kayla, you need to have them in Sunday school to learn about where and how to go into the right direction for their lives. Same for you, there are many great Sunday school classes in local churches for adults too. To find God, you must SEEK Him but He may be found if you are serious (Jer 29:13, Isaiah 55:6).

Lauren December 17, 2012 at 1:08 am

I agree with Cherie, the mayans caledar is just a rock and we must not worship it.. its not the truth. I am 23 with a 3 yr old son and it scares me. I do not fear God per say but I fear the unknown but Mr. jack I have a ? after the big flood isn’t true that God made a promise to the people that he would never again destroy all man kind. that it hurt him to ever have to do that?

I don’t go to church like I should but I am a strong believer! I teach my son the right and the wrong and we talk about God and Jesus all the time I do believe that he knows whats in my heart that I don’t have to go to church for him to know that.

Also when the world needed help and need to be shown to believe he sent his only son down now some believe it was just so he can be a saciffice for our sins. but I believe that it was more than that… He taught us the way. but we are a different era and different age. I cant say that I know this but do you think that it may not be the END but the end as we know it. that the nonbelieves will become aware just like back then when Jesus was killed it wasn’t the end but the end of there era it was when bc became ad and the world changed not physical. but God showed us the right way… they say that what ever happens it will be as heaven is on earth and that we will still be known as we are… meaning we will still know our familys and our children we will not lose identity but that the world will feel no pain and that we will know no more hurt. Do you believe that he may just show us a new way to live? God always thinks in a way that our human minds alone can never image but the holy spirit that lives in us all knows the mind of God that if we truly listen to the words that it holds we can maybe only get a fraction of what he has in store for us but an idea no the less!

I maybe wrong but personally I believe and love my God enough to have faith in the fact that he would not just wipe the plant clean. he loves us more than u love ur on child (again we only know a fraction of how his not only mind but love is) we are his children and just as u could not hurt ur own child I believe that He will not hurt us!! I believe that the devil puts fear and loves it when we idlize things like the mayans clanedar and such… fear is what he works on he puts strong holds on ur mind and has u believing that God would do such a thing he feeds on it… but the truth is that God loves us more than anything! and if u believe that He would ever do such a thing than ur just letting the devil win. more than ever God needs u to trust him to have faith in Him and to know that what ever he has planned for us that it will be great! And that we should just have faith. it may be hard when u don’t know are u don’t see but just as u see the affect of the wind blowing in the trees u don’t see the actually wind but u feel it u see its affect that it has u must have faith in God as u do in that wind!! Hes here all the time and his plan for u and I are more than what our minds can grasp!!!

Lauren, I’m not really good with remembering verses of the bible but I do know in Genesis 9:11, it says:

And I will establish my covenant with you: neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

I don’t believe the bible says he will never destroy all man kind or the earth period. Just no more with a flood……With all that I have read and remember in the Bible, the statement that he will never destroy mankind again, seems to be a contradiction to what the rest of the bible says.

I stand corrected. I did go back my self and read it! And it is true that he said that. My apologies. But isn’t true that he said “that we would still be known as we are known”? See I love God I trust in Him. But what scares me is that fact that I would never again know who my son is. Like I said before I don’t fear God per say but the part I do fear is losing my identity of who I am and that is a mother. My son is everything to me. And I just don’t want to lose the one thing that I wake each morning to and go to sleep each night knowing! I trust God and I have faith but to wake up one morning to find my son gone and to face this world alone will break me!

Jack Wellman December 18, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Hi Lauren. Yes, we will be known (by God) even as we are known (will know each other) and so that is what the Scripture means. We WILL know each other in heaven because there is so much evidence in the Bible to indicate this and you and your son will never forget a thing that happened on earth. God bless you Lauren.

Dear Valencia, I read your post and my heart went out to you. Whenever we come to God repentant of our sins,he is faithful and just enough to forgive us. The bible says that if our sins are as red as crimson,that God is able to cleanse us and make us as white as snow.
I am glad you found this website cos here,all your fears about the end of the world will be laid to rest. I was afraid,and alone before God led me to this site,but today,I am confident of this very thing that he who has begun the good work in us will bring it onto perfection. Do not fear the illuminatti cos our God is greater than all. You can be rest assured that in Christ,you are in safety and there’s no need to fear!

Hi again Valencia. You say your man needs to get better kids? Does he have children of his own? Are you both living together? I see you want to get married. Is this right?

Thank You Pastor Jack for all the encouraging words you have given me/us. I want to Thank You for linking me up with What Christians want to know website. This is a very helpful website for all your unanswer question about who JESUS our lord and savior is. I pray that God keeps using you in a mighty way to touch many lives and always speak bodly about JESUS CHRIST! There many concerns about people perdicting “Dooms Day” but the bible also states clearly to be aware about false prophets. Just put all your trust in god and pray for lots of guidance, knowledge, and wisdom. Once again Thank You and may God bless each and everyone of us.

Hello Kremly. What encouraging words you left me. It seems just when I am getting down and getting spiritual attacks and others from fellow Christians about the articles on this website, God sends me an encourager like you. Thank you and I thank God for you too.

The bible mentions 144,000 in special references to the 2nd coming of Christ. Doesnt the mayan calander end in 144,000 days which will make that day December 21, 2012?

Jack Wellman December 20, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Hello Krystal. I did not know that about the 144, 000 days in the Mayan calendar but this I do know…Jesus said that no one knows the day or the hour of his return and the Mayans didn’t even see the coming of their civilization coming to pass and so I can’t see how they could know hundreds of years later what would happen. My trust is in God and His Word and that of Jesus but I have no trust in the Mayan calendar.

the Mayan long count calendar is 5,125 years long which makes that well over a million days long or it is over 60 thousand something months long or 180 thousand plus weeks… although i am a bit worried about tomorrow i am trying my best to think clearly here and i appreciate finding this article and all of your wonderful comments…

Cool Faith. My wife will be dissapointed if it does end tomorrow for all her coupons expire on Dec. 31st! LOL Seriously, we know better don’t we because our trust is in Christ and not any Mayan civilization that couldn’t even predict the end of its own people? Know any Mayan’s around today?

I remember an incident that occured many years ago in my country. It was a bad bomb explosion at the millitary base…something had triggerd the explosions. This went on for many hours. I had never seen anything as horrible as that in my life. I was travelling back home from church when it happened and my friend and I watched the bombs flying overhead where we stood. People didn’t understand what had happened,neither did we, but I stayed calm…my friend did too. That day was a black day in my country. Lots of folks assumed that a war had broken out. I saw people running helter skelter. There was chaos every where. Robbers and miscreants took advantage of the situation. They looted homes,hamed and robbed people of their belongings. I was still a very long way from home. I watched people run to their deaths out of fear. As I stood there that afternoon with my friend, watching the scene unfold in my presence,a thought occured to me that I should hold my friend’s hand. As soon as I held her hand, a man whom I had not noticed before came out of nowhere,dragged my hand and pulled us towards a bus. He did it as a matter of urgency. We boarded the bus,and the man was gone. As our bus left the park that day,we saw a bomb landing around the spot where our bus had parked. I don’t know how the man figured out where we were going and all of that because the bus took us to a few blocks from home.
A few days later,we heard on the news that many people had died. Not one person had died because he/she had been hit by a bomb. People died because they panicked and ran to their deaths. Some got hit by moving vehicles,but most drowned while trying to cross a swamp. We watched on t.v as their bodies were brought out from the swamps and canals.
The moral of my long story? Fear kills. Its one of the tools the devil uses in destroying people. Well, the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom-my mum says that all the time, but do not fear what people have said about 21st 2012. Do not help spread the evil rumours too.
In 365 places in the bible,it is written fear not! That means God is with us everyday of the year…even in leap years:)
Brethren,a thousand shall fall at our side and ten thousand at our right side but they shall not come near us.
Well,its 21st december today and I am still going about my normal activities. I have nothing to fear!
Guys, I hope we’ll still keep this thread going after today.
Pastor Jack,thanks for creating this thread. I guess the reason is so that God’s people can be drawn closer to him. I have personally been blessed and strenghtened by the very many posts I have read here. I was fearful when I came but you dispelled all my fears with the word of God. I can’t wait to hear what this evil rumour peddlers will say tomorrow:D

I hope and pray that this world will only relay on God’s word and promise to us. God will never leave us astray and wondering the worst. He will come one day like a thief in the night when you least suspect it. That’s way we should always be in the word and doing his works to save people for his kingdom. In fact it is our job as Christians to lead others into salvation. To always be the light of the world and speak BODLY about JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD AND SAVIOR. Many may not like you or even stop talking to you. But as long as you plant that seed GOD will do the rest. Remember we are a reflection of who GOD is. I once read “it is better to offend someone into heaven then to flatter them to hell”. With that said brothers and sister stay focus on GOD and always remember if it isn’t written in God’s word it means absolutely nothing. The bible says run and don’t look bad and that’s exactly what I choose to believe. Let’s keep christ in Christmas and remember the reason we celebrate Christmas.

Once again I want to thank pastor Jack Wellman for starting this blog and clearing up so many different thoughts people had including myself. And all my wonderful brothers and sister that step up with faith to response to everyone’s concerns and needs. God is awesome and always shows up at the right time.. may GOD continue blessing each and everyone of us.

Matt 24:11 Jesus said “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”

Matt 24:24 “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.”

Jesus said “Take heed that no man deceive you.”

Matt 24:36
“But of that day and hour know no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”

Jesus said “Watch” Matt 24:41

Jesus said “be ready” Matt 24:44

Matt 24:48
“But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, “My lord delaying his coming.”

Jesus agian say “Watch” in Matt 25:13

Hello. I don’t believe any man’s prediction of the end times; however, everyone around me lately have been saying that we are getting close to the biblical end of the world. I am only 18 years old. I worry so bad because I have a boyfriend and would like to get married and have a family more than anything. It’s also not comforting to think that me and my boyfriend might not even be together in heaven based on the verse in Matthew regarding marriage. It all frightens me and consumes my every thought anymore. I suffer from really bad anxieties. Please help me and pray for me so that I may finally be able to relax and enjoy life.

The end of the world, the alignment of Mayan calendar with the planets, and other nature signs, all this have a inner connection and an invisible relativism among themselves. Think of molecules, atoms and sub atom particles, now including Higgs Bosson, and everything put together is an awesome assurance to our souls, that we are in it together, and one can never pull himself or extricate himself from the unbreakable constraint and bind with the love of God. He is our ‘FINAL ANSWER”

The final answer sir is Jesus Christ’s atoning work on the cross of Calvary. Nothing is impossible with God and there is not even one single atom that rebels against the sovereignty of God.

Thank you Faith for your question. What concerns me is what time Jesus will return and that is the most important question anyone could ever address and more importantly, has a person come to repentance and confession of sin and then put their trust in Christ? As for the earth’s end, I do know that of the Kingdom of God, there will be no end.

Many of you brothers and sisters, seems to be very young most of you, and inexperienced in life, take it so personally and get scared and you are constantly blogging and tweetering, and face-booking, and now it is begining to scare me a little to think about the end of our world, including the unbelievably mystifying rapture event. Jut hold and wait, God’s plan perhaps is for all people, the entire nations, peoples and saints in all generations, and I wonder isn’t there one single event which can unravel a prophetic utterance of the past into a present reality. Please give me a bit of your reflection of this factual discussion. Thanks.
