Air travel has been halted across Europe because of a volcano spouting ash in Iceland. There have been many volcanoes erupting within just the past few months, making it a rare sign that something serious might be going on around the world.
Some people might think that these volcanic eruptions might be the sign that the world is coming to an end, or that these eruptions are a sign as to the terrible way we have treated this planet with all of the pollution.
So, are these the end days as so many people fear? Well, yesterday was an earthquake, today was not only a volcano erupting, but apparently there was also meteors coming down from the sky in Iowa. Now, one has to ask themselves what is going on. The prophecy about the end times throughout all religions, not just Christianity, but all of them, have all predicted certain things happening before earth becomes totally unrecognizable compared to what we know it today.
Some of the key signs are things like earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteors “raining fire from the sky”, so it is no wonder why people see what is happening in the world today and see that the end of the world is coming.
Let us look at some of the predictions which tie into these end-time prophecies. One of the things which is being carefully looked at in recent times is the Mayan calendar which is supposed to end on December 21st, 2012. Now, I of course have some objections to this because the mayan calendar, while being amazing in the fact that the Mayans understood the idea of time being cyclical, rather than linear (like most of our calendars today), their calendar can not be exactly equated to our own, and it therefore becomes difficult to know precisely the end date for the Mayan calendar. To put an exact end date on when earth will be destroyed or perhaps altered extremely, would make life not worth living. You would know when it is all going to end, and you would just want to stop living life and wait for the inevitable distruction. That of course, is no way to live.
So, what has been predicted might happen by this 2012 end date? There are several predictions made by people. One of them is that the Earth’s poles will shift dramatically, possibly so much that the current North pole will become or South pole and vice-versa. Another great prediction is that there is a tenth planet that was revealed many years ago which goes around our solar system named Planet X. This planet has a very long, elliptical orbit which means it only comes close to our inner solar system every so many years and is supposed to come into our vicinity around the year 2012 and will collide with earth. Supposedly this Planet X is what collided with the astroid belt which used to be a planet, but is now a bunch of rock debris, which is what makes up the asteroid belt.
So, now you might be asking yourself what this all has to do with earthquakes, volcanoes, and meteors falling from the sky. Well, all of these things are supposed to happen before the 2012 date… interesting isn’t it? Here it is 2010, and these things are starting to occur with more frequency.
Whatever the case may be, whatever the end may entail, I have a feeling we won’t have to wait long to find out what happens. Tell us what you think will happen. Leave a comment!
