As we get closer to 12-21, the date the world will end based on a Mayan calendar (I know…they might have misinterpreted it…), we’re going to hear more and more about prophecies. Last year it was Harold Camping’s rapture date, and then the other one too. Or was that two years ago? I really don’t want to take the time to do the research. You get the point. Prophecies come down the pike regularly, and they just as regularly go unfulfilled. I’m having a hard time caring.
Are any of you jaded about prophecies? I am. Having grown up in an environment that prophesied a rapture behind every major world event, I’ll admit my skin was tingling a bit that day of Camping’s first prophecy. But in the end I played REM’s song “It’s The End Of The World As We Know It, And I Feel Fine” over and over, and it did make me feel fine. These so-called prophets regularly get it wrong.
What we need are some prophecies that actually come true! Wouldn’t you like to see a prophecy that is fulfilled? I know it is Christmas, but Christmas always points toward Easter. So how about reading the prophet Zechariah to search for some prophecies that did come true, prophecies about Easter. I’d love to hear your thoughts. Are Zechariah’s words just a bunch of Nostradamus-like gobbledy-gook? Or is there something more here?
And just for fun, since it is 12-12-12, another supposed day of significance, here’s a laugh from www.radiofreebabylon.com:
