Pope Says to Ignore Doomsday Warnings · November 22, 2012

Pope Benedict XVI told Christians to not pay attention to warnings that the world will end on December 21, 2012.

Sensational claims about doomsday being on December 21 come from speculation about an ancient Mayan calendar that has people thinking that the world will end on that day. Films and documentaries that have explored the Mayan doomsday prediction have increased public interest. On December 21, 90,000 people are expected to attend a large event in Guatemala City. Tour groups are even promoting end-time themed getaways to take advantage of the interest.

The pope, speaking from his Vatican apartments on Saint Peter’s square, said that certain texts in the Bible “speak of ‘the sun and moon going out, the stars falling from the sky.’”

“But Benedict said that Jesus ‘does not describe the end of the world, and when he uses apocalyptic images, he is not acting the prophet.
On the contrary, he wants to stop his disciples of every epoch from being curious over dates, forecasts, and wants to give them the key to … the right road to walk today and tomorrow to enter into the eternal life,’ he added.”

While Jesus did make it clear that no man knows the day or hour that the world will end, he was indeed speaking prophetically. Benedict did not take into account that these signs in the sun, moon and stars have already happened at least once. Nor does the Pope take the Bible literally.

But multiple failures of predicted end dates for the world have discredited those who make them, while those who correctly pay attention to the genuine signs of the times and the nearness of Jesus’ return, are often ignored or even discredited along with them.

In recent times others have also made predictions that have failed. One example was Harold Camping who predicted the end of the world on May 21, 2011, and when that failed he adjusted his prediction that the end would come on October 21, 2011.

These failed attempts to predict the end of the world threaten to turn the minds of millions away from God’s true last day warnings, and keep them unprepared for the coming crisis upon God’s people. They are a direct attack on the message of warning that intends for His people to give. The enemy would certainly want God’s true prophetic people to be discredited, or at least discounted as religious fanatics.

Christ is coming soon. Watching the signs of the times, and being ready for Him in character are the true principles of Christ’s true followers.

“No one has a true message fixing the time when Christ is to come or not to come.” Selected Messages, Vol. 2, page 113

“Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24:44
