There has been a significant amount of information presented by the secular world concerning the date December 21, 2012. The publishing effort involved has been eerily similar to what took place for the event Y2K in the year 2000. The Bible cautions us that the deception of men is going forth (Matt. 24) and will try to distract our spiritual focus.
The general hype so far has been that there is some kind of end-of-the-world event associated with 2012 because of the Mayan calendar and for other reasons such as the sun. The movie 2012 focuses on the physical events to take place while the Bible instructs us to keep our focus spiritual. There are some ministries that are speaking about what they believe they heard from the Lord. An example is David Wilkerson's ministry and their preparation message of setting aside about a month's supply of provisions would be a wise thing to do at this time. They have also issued a number of messages concerning spiritual preparation and faith. Theirs is a well-balanced message being broadcast and this ministry agrees with their message. See Wilkerson's ministry link on the LINKS page.
For those who would like to know more about the scientific basis for what the Mayans were saying in their calendar and what the astronomical arrangements will be in the heavenlies for the year 2012, there is an excellent one hour presentation by David Flynn, a type of research scientist concerning the end times and the UFO phenomenon. This ministry would like to augment what Mr. Flynn has said by clarifiying to you that the conclusion is that the year 2012 has the potential to be the year for the revelation of some great deception in preparation for the eventual image of the beast and his global mark. God knows if this will or will not happen so that is why it is very important to keep a spiritual focus and He will let us know what we need to know in our heart. Mr. Flynn's presentation may be available for viewing on YouTube, by searching for David Flynn Doomsday Clock.

There appears to be a possible deception in progress. The NASA JPL website presented information about an object called Comet Elenin C/2010 X1 approaching Earth. A chart extrapolated data from the NASA JPL website about possible events to take place in the fall of 2011, correlating with the comet's arrival. However, nothing took place and the conclusion is that the event was contrived for reasons not entirely clear. One possibility is that this was a misdirection move in order to take attention off of outer space for a time and redirect it to the failing global economy and brewing world war. At the strategic time, incoming objects from outer space will be approaching earth. The Two Witnesses book (volume 1), Chapter 33 discusses the sequence of events prior to objects heading toward earth (Revelation 6:13). The Bible exposes deception and it should be our guide, not NASA or anybody else, if one wants to know what is really going to happen.
