Interesting News Items From Yahoo

Please read these interesting articles from yahoo news, via these links:



1) The first one regards expected solar activity in a few years time. Could this be as prophesied in the Bible (Revelation)? However, we must always remember that God IS in control of all universal events and His judgements are irrespective of scientific discoveries. But, it could be that God has already put in place the motions of these judgements ahead of time????  But, He could still intervene!!!

2) The second one illustrates how quickly landscape can change. It doesn't require "millions" of years!!!

John,

I have read read the news previously about the solar flare activity to occur in 2012 - whenever this is brought up, people always seem to say "see, the Mayans were right about 2012" -I do not give any credence to the whole Mayan thing as they worshiped false gods.

It just happens to coincide with God's plan. Is this deception from Satan when people focus more on giving the Mayans credit rather than recognizing that God's word is being fulfilled?

How would you respond? This would really help me with speaking with others and trying to get thier focus off the Mayan 2012 thing and focus on God.

Hi Tony

Okay, I see what you are saying. Yes, we do need to clarify that the Mayan thing is pagan and VERY unreliable.

However, the Bible is TOTALLY reliable. It states that (after the rapture of true believers) God's judgement will be poured out upon those who hated God and "always did what they thought was right in their own eyes" as was the case before the Nohaic flood.

The Bible has many passages about the very last days in which it mentions the sun not giving its light and terrible things happening in the heavens and on Earth.

I think that if the Mayans want to hijack the teaching of scriptures we need to point out that the Bible taught these things thousands of years ago through the Old Testament and New Testament writers. ie a long time before they got on the bandwagon.

The Mayan history goes back to about the time of the Tower of Babel. When the people were scattered all over the globe the pagan astrological ideas of Babylon went with them through many cultures, nations and religions. Mayans are just one group of many to circulate Babylonic religion.

They didn't really come into prominence until around 250AD. As I understand it the calender predictions are a relatively new thing with the Mayans and (as I understand it)are dated well after the Book of Revelation.

The Mayans are just getting on board the Apocalypse train because satan knows that we are in the Last Days of The Last Days. You are right, we must not be ignorant of his schemes and expose them.

The answer is simply to teach what the bible says and focus on Jesus. I am not sure we can stop them saying what they are saying but we CAN stand up for what the Bible says.

This event may come to something or nothing much at all. It may be God's time piece because He knows the time and seasons when the judgement will come and because wickedness is so great in the Earth God may have already set things in motion. But ..... bear in mind that "no-one knows the hour when these things will happen apart from the Father" so God may intervene and change things.

I guess I haven't really answered your question sufficiently. Let me point you to an article which might be useful to you from Tony Pearce of Light For The Last Days.

"I have read read the news previously about the solar flare activity to occur in 2012"

The thing is, it is two years into the future. Just because the scientists say blah, blah, blah, doesn't mean its right. When they get the weather forcast half way right for the next 24 hours, then I may take notice of their forecasts (prophecies)for this solar storm.

God may have something entirely different in mind planned for 2012
after all he made the sun go back for Joshua. He made water fall from the sky for the first time in Noah's day.

Praise The Lord!

Thanks Sue

Yes you are right!

I meant to say that if God can create the Heavens and Earth in 6 days He does not need 2 years to set in motion the blackness of the sun.

However, I think it is good to remind everybody that God WILL judge the earth with terrible events like the sun turning black.
We should use news items like this to remind the godless of what the Bible says.

Whatever scientists or astrologers say God is in control and events WILL happen according to how God chooses to fulfil it.
