The 5000 year old Mayan calendar coming to an abrupt end in the year 2012. Why? 2012 is a time of transition to a new world. The history of our separation from God will come to it's end. The Messiah, the Second Coming, who is already born on the earth, will be recognized and will teach us how to live our lives filled with love. Mankind will reach spiritual awakening. 2012 will be a transition to a new Golden Age.
As we approach the year 2012, we are seeing an explosion of new books and articles about what we might encounter at that time. Some say it will be the end of the world as we know it, while in fact we are entering a transformational period leading to a time of peace. Even the crisis we experience now comes with that purpose - to awaken humanity from it's selfish ways Humanity will gradually become one family under God and the earth will be filled with peace and joy.
This expectation is largely due to the 5000 year old Mayan calendar coming to an abrupt end. It seems the winter solstice of 2012 is the last event recorded on their "long count" calendar. This calendar, carved in stone, is one of the few communication left from their culture, as most was destroyed during their colonization by Europeans.
There are many ideas about what may happen in 2012, and to some Christian groups there is a related idea that this may be the time of the Messiah's return--there are Biblical prophecies that this time will have calamities and disasters of very large scale, like the end of the world.
Predictions of Nostradamus about 2012
One explanation, that is extremely helpful to understand the time and significance of the year 2012 comes from Rev. Sun Myung Moon. In his teaching this time is a time of transition to a new world. The Messiah does return and will be able to teach us how to live lives filled with love and blessings. Mankind will become one family under God and the earth will be filled with peace and joy. It may not be as simple as it sounds, yet the whole spiritual world and God's plan is moving with power in that direction.
In teaching his message message Rev. Moon has encountered so much opposition. He was imprisoned numerous times. Yet this was all predicted. If we read carefully the prophesies of Nostradamus, Vanga, Korean Prophecies and many others, we will be amazed to find that they prophecy of no one else, but Rev. Moon as the Peacemaker and the Messiah humanity is awaiting. World political and religious leaders are now becoming more and more aware of his great contribution to World Peace. Rev. Moon has build a foundation to guaranty that the future of humanity will be one of Peace and Love. His autobiography, as a Peace Loving Global Citizen, reveals the heart with which he had achieved all this.
