December 21, 2012 The Mayan calendar, the heavens alingnment, the Antichrist and the Rapture by Luis Vega (11 Dec 2012)
The study of the occult symbolism’s as it pertains to the Mayan calendar and Dec 21, 2012 plus the prophecies of the Bible is a very complicated endeavor. Take the astronomical events occurring at the same time and the task is daunting.
Luis Vega has presented a very possible scenario for the coming events this month.
Thank you Luis Vega.

And I stood upon the sand of the Sea, and saw a Beast rise up out of the Sea, having 7 heads and 10 horns, and upon his horns 10 crowns, and upon His heads the name of Blasphemy… and the Dragon gave Him power, and seat, and great authority… 4 And they worshipped the Dragon which gave power unto the Beast: and they worshipped the Beast, saying, Who is like unto the Beast? Who is able to make war with Him? 5 And there was given unto Him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto Him to continue 42 months. (1260 days) -Revelation 13:3-5
This study seeks to illustrate 3 astronomical events & highlight 2 of them that will occur on the now famous end of the Mayan Calendar Dec 21, 2012. These occurrences will provide some ‘pictures’ of what is to prophetically happen according to some interpretations of the Book of Revelation –if not starting on Dec 21, then perhaps in the very near future. These events specifically have to do with the imagery of the Dragon-Serpent coming out of the Sea birthing the AntiChrist, the Transit of Venus as seen from Saturn & the Pentagram Planetary configuration within the Solar System on that very date & time.
What is intriguing is that the current & observable alignments & astronomical patterns of what is to happen on Dec 21, 2012 appears to give credence to the much anticipated advent or ‘birthing’ of the person that will be recognized as the long-awaited ‘AntiChrist’ or ‘Apollo’ Rising for the coming New World Order. It will be an ‘echo’ of Atlantis Rising from sea or from its ashes as the Phoenixbeing ‘born’ anew out of the sea. Perhaps Dec 21, 2012 is the commemoration of when the AntiChrist is to be set in motion, or when the ‘Dragons of Atlantis’ or Fallen Angels -if you will are to come back to help start this ‘birthing’ process. These symbols of cosmic dragons, pentagrams, etc., are solely taken from the cosmic alignments & time configurations that are to occur on Dec 21, 2012. These astronomical scenarios presented are only suggesting a possible speculated Biblical correlation.
This study suggests that these 3 astronomical events, in particular, appear to correlate to Biblical prophecies from the Book of Revelation, mainly the ‘rise’ & disclosure of the AntiChrist that symbolically comes out of a ‘Sea’ & that is empowered by a Red Dragon, aka lucifer during the Tribulation Period. The magnitude of such cosmic events occurring on Dec 21, 2012 leads one to theorize that perhaps such astronomical symbology & events could indeed constitute the advent or ‘birth’ of the AntiChrist very soon upon the world stage.
As the Last Generation before the 2nd Advent of Jesus Christ is coming into focus, we can ascertain the likelihood that the world will be in need of a ‘New Order’ & a New ‘Man’ to lead it. The world will be seeking such an ‘AntiChrist’ to step in place of after the vacuum that will ensue. Many believe that the principle cause of such a vacuum will be the Rapture of the Christian Church. The AntiChrist will be seen as the One that will bring Humanity up from the ashes of the chaotic inferno of violence & despair that will probably occur as a direct result of the Rapture. He will be looked at to lead the masses into a new ‘dawn of enlightenment’. Thus the AntiChrist to come will be seen as a ‘Light Bearer’, like the Statue of Liberty you might say.
Nonetheless, the speculation of the end of the Mayan Calendar being a possible AntiChrist cosmic event gives the opportunity to consider its timing of Dec 21, 2012 & the cosmic symbology surrounding it. The Bible does clearly state that an AntiChrist will be revealed at the End of Days, but only after the Rapture of the Church occurs as some interpret the Bible. As to a possible time gap between the Rapture & the identification of the AntiChrist? That will remain to be seen. Until that time, these illustrations presented in this study will thus focus on 3 of the primary astronomical events that will deal with the symbology of Dec 21, 2012. The first 2 will be expounded upon.
1) the Dragon (Ouroboros) birthing the AntiChrist – Milky Way as in NYC Statue of Liberty
2) the Venus Transit from Saturn’s perspective – possible depiction of Rapture of the Church
3) the Pentagram Planetary Alignment – inverted star with Planet Mars at center prominence
The rationale of linking the Biblical AntiChrist to come with the Dec 21, 2012 cosmic symbology only seeks to understand such a possible connection to each other. It is coming from the perspective that these astronomical occurrences are part of a ‘signal’ or ‘sign’ that has been pre-written in the stars & planetary alignments.
the Spirit of AntiChrist
Although the Bible declares very clearly that the ‘Spirit of AntiChrist’ has already come & is already unleashed on Earth; it will be fulfilled literally in a ‘Man’ in the Last Generation of Humanity. There have been many men & women that have taken on the attributes of such a ‘Beast’. Throughout Human history, one can study the prophetic characteristics when applied to certain personages like Nimrod, Nebuchadnezzar, Alexander the Great, Xerxes, Caesar, Napoleon, Hitler, Stalin, etc.
The end result of such men & women’s deeds have been noting but pure evil, genocide, murder & destruction of the Human Race. Moreover, it has been an aim of such satanic inspired people to replace & dethrone the True Christ, Jesus of Nazareth & make war with all those Believers that follow the Lamb wherever He goes; thus the Spiritual Warfare that the Bible warns us about.
Those past & present ‘type & shadows’ of the characteristics of what the AntiChrist will be like were only prophetic ‘signs’ pointing to the eventual One that is to come out of a tumultuous sea at the ‘End of Days’ on Earth. Perhaps the world is now on the verge of such a ‘galactic’ & perhaps prophetic Biblical fulfillment that the coming years will see the Book of Revelation unraveled before their very eyes. Perhaps Dec 21, 2012 on the Winter Solstice is when this is to start.
The ‘Spirit of AntiChrist’ can be said to have had an immediate, concurrent & futuristic fulfillments of the type of what the Antichrist will be like eventually. In the metaphorical language of the Book of Revelation, it describes a future time when a ‘Man’ will step-up onto the world stage at a time when the world as we know it will have experienced an economic, political, social, religious vacuum & calamity. Some have suggested a global economic melt-down, others a nuclear war, others still, the Rapture or a combination of them all simultaneously. This ‘Man’ will be supernaturally empowered to sell & implement a false renaissance of ‘love, peace & brotherhood’, but at a cost. The cost will be one’s eternal condemnation.
This power of lawlessness that will energize the AntiChrist will imamates from lucifer & will once again seek to destroy & overcome those Saints that will come to Christ Jesus during the Tribulation Period after the Rapture. The Bible describes that is will be done specifically through the power & persuasion of the AntiChrist. Why the LORD will allow the AntiChrist to wage war against the Saints & ‘wear them out’ at that time during the Tribulation Period is a frightening mystery. On one hand, the Remnant of Israel will be sheltered for 1260 Days in Petra, yet those refusing the Mark of the Beast will be decapitated on the spot….It maybe because the Holy Spirit is not in a collective presence as it is today throughout the entire Body of Christ -while on Earth.
The purpose & goal of the AntiChrist in the Last Days will be to set the world up for a false peace, a false Covenant with Israel, a false economy & a false religion, etc. His eventual aim will be to lead all of Humanity into the ‘worship’ of lucifer from the 3rd Temple in Jerusalem. Any that will refuse such a New World Order prescription of mandatory allegiance to the AntiChrist will be physically exterminated.
Moreover, the Spirit of AntiChrist will have & use astronomical symbols & signs that also will accompany such a character; it is that profound & mysterious. The AntiChrist will have power to call ‘fire’ down from heaven & perform lying wonders & miracles, etc. We know that this will be possible because the Creation we know of is also under the curse of sin as is rebellious Humanity. The Fall of Mankind has allowed lucifer to use the very same cosmic symbols & alignments to twist & confuse the meaning for his own purpose & end.
This study is not suggesting that the AntiChrist will either be manifested, ‘birthed’ or identified to the world on Dec 21, 2012; it is only a study in types & shadows. The emphases will be nonetheless on the literal fulfillment of the AntiChrist prophecy & not just a prophetic application of a metaphor over the past centuries during the Church Age that perhaps alluded to a false world church organization & governmental system.
Prophetic cOSMIC Signs
The Bible depicts that Jesus Christ, is the LORD of Creation & has made all things, included prophetic ‘signs’ & wonders in the Heavens or cosmos. He made the Sun, Moon, Planets, and Stars etc. The Bible further declares that He set them up as time pieces & for ‘signs’. The signs themselves are not the actual fulfillment of the prophetic event in question.
As an illustration, if one is driving to a city for example, the road taken will likely have several signs with the ‘name’ of that city along the way. The signs with the name are not the event or city itself. The signs will also tend to occur more frequently as the city is approached. The fulfillment of the journey is realized when one gets to the city limits & the real city emerges. What is experienced along the way is the passing of ‘time’. The signs only provide the conditions, markers and/or estimated time of arrival (ETA).
The same principle applies to Biblical Prophecy. What is key, as it relates to the fulfillment of a prophetic event, is the dimension of time involved. This ‘time’ factor has been understood by all ancient cultures to be in direct proportion to the astronomical procession of time that can measure when things are to occur, at least from the perspective of the cosmos. In other words, there is a big clock out there where certain times that can be calculated.
Biblical Prophecy is all about such ‘timing’. Cosmic signs are such ‘markers’ & can speak of the conditions leading up to the fulfillment of the prophetic object and/or event, or in this case, the person of the AntiChrist for example, the Rapture and/or the 2nd Coming of Christ. Such was the case in the advent of the LORD’s birth in Bethlehem too with the Star of Bethlehem & the Astronomers from the East that followed such a cosmic ‘sign’.
The ‘Signs’ that the LORD has given through astronomical configurations & alignments throughout His Creation perhaps speaks of a ‘birthing’ of ‘The AntiChrist’ & the Rapture to occur simultaneously in the case of Dec 21, 2012. Perhaps Dec 21, 2012 is when certain astronomical alignments within Creation have been pointing to such a prophetic simultaneous event. The illustrations thus given in this study here are purely speculative; they are to be taken as ‘sign posts’ & not the real EVENT. Or maybe it is?
For example, on Dec 21, 2012, the same astronomical alignments could be referring to 2 distinct events, yet using the same configuration. For example, from a top view of the Solar System on Dec 21, 2012, the cosmic configuration depicts a sinister inverted satanic Pentagram wherein Mars, the God of War is within its center composition. The inverted Planetary Alignment converges or meets at the Planet Neptune, which is at the heart of AQUARIUS. (See chart for illustration)
It is believed that as this SAME picture, also alludes to the Saints being translated to Glory as depicted by the Venus Transit as seen from Saturn against the backdrop of Pisces & Pegasus. In other words, as Saints go up, the ‘Dragons of Atlantis’ or the Fallen Angelic host will be coming down to Earth. Many in the occult will be ascribing such as the Ascended Master or ‘Alien’s come to save Humanity.
As speculated above, perhaps Dec 21, 2012 will be either that ‘time’ or a sign that the ‘time’ is near for a prophetic event of the Rapture & disclosure of the Antichrist is to occur simultaneously. If the conditions of the world will demand an AntiChrist figure, it will be because of an event like the Rapture that will create such a vacuum that the world will seek an ‘Anti’ or instead of Christ to resolve all of Humanity’s issues that will ensue. What has been alarming is that prophetic signs have been occurring over the past decade & they have been intensifying in particular over the last 2-3 years. It can be reasoned that like the city limits approaching example, the EVENT is about to occur.
The Dragon out from the Sea
One astronomical occurrence that will occur at the end of the Mayan long-count Calendar of Dec 21, 2012 has to do with the imagery involving New York City Statue of Liberty. On Dec, 21, 2012 the Sun will have a low arch over the New York Statue of Liberty (Lucifer) horizon due its winter trajectory. The Statue of Liberty in NYC on Dec 21, 2012 will approximate a literal representation of what is transpiring in the cosmic realm. The Statue will have 3 spectacular alignments, probably more corresponding to certain occultic time & numbers.
On Dec 21, 2012 there will be several ‘pictures’ or imagery of spectacular cosmic alignment that will associate ‘Lady Liberty’ with occultic symbology. The Statue of Liberty has both a male & female association to it in the occult. It is a fusion of Apollo (Osiris) & Venus (Isis). The symbology involving the Statue of Liberty has to do with the Galactic Plane that is the demarcation of the Milky Way. The Milky Way from the side view appears to look like a ‘Serpent’ biting its Tail. This is referred to as the Ouroboros. The 1st symbology dealing with Lady Liberty & the Dragon coming up from the Sea will be at 9:11am, the 2nd at 11:11:11am and then the 3rd at 2:33pm local time.
The 1st ‘picture’ is of the Statue of Liberty intersecting the point at which the Galactic Plane & the Ecliptic meet. The perspective is from the point on Liberty Island & behind the Statue itself. This cosmic intersection will be around 9:11am when looking southeast toward the direction of the Pyramids of Giza/Jerusalem after sunrise in the morning. Of note also, it will be at that precise time of 9:11am that the Planet Mars is to rise above the NYC ocean horizon. Later on, the setting of Mars takes place around 5:55pm local time. The number 555 in the occult is the sign for death & resurrection. And we are all too familiar with the association of 911 & NYC.
To the unobserving eye, the morning dawning in NYC might seem like any other, but if you were to transpose the Zodiac, the Planets, & the Galactic Lines & Eclipse, the sky background would come alive with a ‘message’. This message is accented by the Statue’s Torch that very few places on Earth, if any could have been designed to have such a symbolism associated with it. Perhaps the intersection of the Galactic Line & the Ecliptic with the Apollo-Venus aka Lady Liberty is signaling that the ‘time’ of the ‘Light Bearer’ (lucifer) has arrived in the form of his AntiChrist.
The 2nd ‘picture’ of the Statue of Liberty has to do with the ‘Eye of Lucifer’. This ‘cosmic Eye’ is the left eye of the Cosmic Serpent Ouroboros. At precisely 11:11:11 local time in NYC, if one stands looking toward the south direction in back of the Statue of Liberty, one will see the Torch of Lady Liberty eclipsing the very ‘Eye’ of the Serpent. (See chart for illustration) For a possible esoteric & occultic significance, a truncated All-Seeing Eye pyramid is transposed over the celestial region. It appears to match such a rendering of corresponding attributes of Lady Liberty with the All-Seeing Eye pyramid. The 11:11:11 time marker at which the Sun is traversing the Dark Rift echoes & perhaps has a link to last year’s trek of the 13 Crystal Skull across America by the Maya Elders.
The Serpent Trek across the USA last year ended up in the City of Angels (Fallen), Los Angeles, CA on 11:11:11 or Nov 11, 2011. (See 13 Skull chart for illustration here) It is striking that yet we have another depiction of a Serpent or Dragon ‘birthing out the Fallen Angel, aka lucifer, satan, Apollo etc. This ‘Fallen Angel’ will be the Torch Bearer of ‘Light;’ to the world in the New World Order to come that perhaps the Dec 21, 2012 cosmic signs are announcing. What is intriguing is that at 11:11:11 Universal Time will correspond to 6:11am NYC local time, a reversed 9-11. Moreover it is when at that precise time, Mars, the god of War rises in the Eastern horizon at 9:11am local time in NYC. (check for verification)
The Book of Revelation declares that this ‘Apollo’ will be rising out of the pit when an Angel that has the Key to the Abyss is released; it will be none other than the AntiChrist. The Torch of ‘Light’ perhaps is symbolizing the ‘Spark’ that energizes the Beast or AntiChrist that the Dragon coming out of the Sea will support.
The Eye of the Cosmic Serpent is where Ophiuchus, the 13th added constellation starts his ascent holding Serpens that ascends toward the ‘Crown’ or Corona. The Biblical rendition according to the works of EW Bullinger is that Ophiuchus is a picture of the True Christ wrestling with satan, the Serpent-Dragon that is trying to usurp the ‘Crown’ or ‘birthright’ of Heaven. To the occult & satanists, it the Serpens, the Dragon, aka satan that is upholding the ‘man’, or AntiChrist.
The 3rd ‘picture’ of the Statue of Liberty also has to do with the intersecting of the point at which the Galactic Plane (Milky Way) & the Ecliptic meet. It will be at a particular time when the Galactic Line is entirely vertical or perpendicular to the Earth’s horizon. If one stands looking toward the southwesterly direction in front of the Statue of Liberty at 2:33pm local time –a 322 Skull & Bones association, you will see the Sun as the Torch of Lady Liberty. (See chart of illustration)
The implied symbology of Dec 21, 2012 cosmic alignments in relation to the timing & positioning with respect to the Statue of Liberty is remarkable. If you transpose the Milky Way or Cosmic Serpent onto the NYC skyline against the backdrop of the Statue of Liberty at that very hour, you have a spectacular interpretation of ‘Apollo’ being birthed. The Dragon-Serpent is ’birthing’ the AntiChrist through the Serpent or Dragon’s mouth that comes out of the sea or waters.
The Bible depicts several ‘Beasts’ or Dragon-Serpents that come out of the ‘Sea. One very prominent Beast has 7 Heads& 10 Horn ridden by a Harlot in Purple. The Statute of Liberty is actually a fusion of the god Apollo (Osiris) & Diana (Isis), it is a trophy to Venus that it too has male & female attributes. In the female mythology, it would be Venus being birthed out of the Shell of the primordial waters. How fitting it is to have the Statue of Liberty, be a euphemism for this ‘Harlot’ riding the Beast that is birthed by the Dragon coming out of the Sea.
The Dragons of Atlantis
Some interpret that the sequence of these astronomical occurrences that are to occur on Dec 21, 2012 are a fulfillment of ancient omens that allude to a time & place of Atlantis from which such ‘dragons’ or Fallen Angels once had dominion over the Earth. This imagery associated with the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island echoes that of Atlantis Rising out of the sea. It speaks of the resurgence of the Guardians of Atlantis or Fallen Angels of old that are said to come again at the End of Days to reclaim dominion on Earth over mankind. The Book of Revelation depicts that these serpents are a euphemism for Fallen Angels, ‘Stars’ cast down, lucifer etc. This is could be a picture or ‘sign’ that the former ‘dragons’ or serpents of Atlantis are to rise again.
Very few places on Earth will have this imagery of a ‘Man’ being birthed from a Serpent’s mouth as in New York City’s Statue of Liberty as the ‘serpent’ or dragon is coming up from out of the Sea. (See chart for illustration) The Book of Revelation specifically states that the Dragon or Beast that comes out of the Sea will have 7 Heads etc. It will be ridden by a Harlot dressed in purple. The Statue of Liberty would be a very befitting euphemism of a woman having domain over them, as in a country, a church or an organization perhaps.
The Cosmic Serpent – OUROBOROS
What occurs astronomically on Dec 21, 2012 is an alignment between the Galactic Plane that is the Milky Way with the Solar Eclipse. The Milky Way Galaxy from a side view has from ancient times been depicted as a self-consuming Cosmic Serpent or Dragon. It is referred to as the Ouroborosin which the Head meets its Tail. On Dec 21, 2012 not only will the Sun be approximately at the Galactic Center & Equator of the Dark Rift or the ‘Mouth’ of the Cosmic Serpent but there will be a Planetary Alignment as well. It will specifically consist of Saturn, Venus, Mercury, Sun, Pluto & Mars. (5 Planets)
The Galactic Alignments are believed to occur at 11:11:11 UT. This does not happen but 1/~26,000 years. On 2012, this near conjunction of the Sun will specifically happen during the Winter Solstice. Ancient civilizations like the Aztecs & Mayan venerated a Serpent-Dragon birthing the ‘One’, the Cosmic Christ that will usher in the Ages of time. In the case of Dec 21, 2012, it will be the ‘time’ of the Age of Aquarius. It is believed that Quetzalcoatl or ‘Apollo’ would return during this New Age to lead it. Perhaps the Statue of Liberty was designed to symbolize this when the Cosmic Dragon or Serpent would be coming from the “Sea’ to initiate a Man, i.e. Apollo Rising to rule the coming New Age.
To the ancient civilizations like the Maya & Egyptians, the Milky Way or the Serpent- Dragon represents the passage of Osiris or Quetzalcoatl from Age to Age. He is said to enter the tail of a Great Serpent, where he is drawn through its body by the powers of the Dragon to come up & out through its mouth to be born ‘anew.’ This occurs at the Galactic ‘Cross’ which is considered to be the ‘Sacred Tree of Life’. This imagery echoes the Tree of Life from the accounts of the Garden of Eden in the Book of Genesis.
What is interesting about this cosmology is that it is believed that when this ‘crossing’ occurs, the ‘souls’ will emerge like in a birth canal from the ‘mouth’ of a Serpent (or worm hole). How this could possibly infer to the Resurrection & Rapture is that the ancient peoples believed that when this intersection of the ‘crossing’ occurred, the souls of the righteous on Earth would be ‘harvested. This inference to such an occultic religious belief system is not to insinuate that the Rapture will occur on Dec 21, 2012.

The Venus Transit
Another astronomical event that will occur at the end of the Mayan long-count Calendar of Dec 21, 2012 has to do with the Transit of Venus. The Transits of Venus that most are familiar with was the one that occurred on June 5-6th, 2012. That Transit of Venus was a Transit that occurred from the perspective & reference point of Earth. But, there is another Transit of Venus, it will occur on Dec 21, 2012 but from Saturn’s perspective.
This Transit will occur against the backdrop of the constellations of Pisces & Pegasus on that date. In some Christian communities, this rare occurrence of the Venus Transit is yet another ‘picture’ of ‘the Rapture’ or a snatching-away. As many believed that the June Transit was a ‘Picture of the Rapture’. (See Transit chart here) Perhaps so too will this Venus Transit event, as seen from Saturn, will allude to a similar ‘picture of the Rapture’ or be some sort of a ‘double witness’. The chances of having 2 Transit of Venus in the same year are astronomical.
In many religious & non-religious circles, the year 2012 is considered to be a ‘Passage Year’. What better imagery for the Body of Christian Believers to ‘Passage Out’ of this present evil age; caught up & out –to be removed. This particular Transit of Venus is accented by being associated with the symbology of Pisces & Pegasus. This study is no way insinuating that this Dec 21 2012 Transit of Venus from Saturn’s perspective will be coinciding with the actual anticipated Rapture as defined in 1 Thessalonians 4:17, but perhaps.
The Venus Transit from Saturn’s alignment will occur against the back drop of the constellations of Pisces & Pegasus. These 2 constellations combined with the symbology of Saturn & Venus can allude to a ‘picture of the Rapture’. In terms of possible prophetic interpretations, Saturn is a type of the ‘Old Age’ coming to an end as in the Grim Reaper or Father Time that signals an end of a ‘time’ or Age. Such an alignment with Saturn & Venus would be ‘signaling’ such an end of an Age, perhaps the Church Age?
If so, then the Church or ‘Woman’ that has been bound like Pisces will take flight as in Pegasus to escape the Wrath that is to come upon the world. This ‘picture’ could be alluding to the ‘Fishes’ being loosed or transited awaiting Resurrection & Rapture at such an ‘end of the age’. The Venus Transit could therefore also allude to the Church as a Pearl or a Woman that is bound as Pisces is (Old & New Testament Saints) to the Sea Monster Cetus, (Dragon-satan).
The Bible states that the Church Age will one day end. The last day will be the cause for the Resurrection & Rapture of it. It could perhaps coincide with the symbology that the Dec 21, 2012 data is depicting & when many cultures are anticipated the New Age to begin & the AntiChrist to arrive. The Biblical depictions of the advent of the Antichrist sequence scenario is understood to follow the Rapture. It is Christ’s promise in John 14 to return for His own before the Wrath as foretold in Rev 4. Why? Because the LORD’s Wrath will be directed specifically at the AntiChrist & his age or ‘time’. The Dec 21, 2012 is perhaps just another ‘picture’ of this possible sequence & prophetic event that is to occur.
Nonetheless, the Transit of Venus from Earth’s perspective may yet have been of some significance with regards to the Rapture after all. Could the Transits of Venus that occurred in June have been a sort of pre-curser to something dealing with the Venus Transit that is to occur from Saturn’s perspective on Dec 21, 2012? There are almost exactly 200 days from the Transit of June to the one in December 2012.
The Golden Age to Come
What is spectacular about Dec 21, 2012 on the Winter Solstice is that the Sun has not been in such approximation to the Galactic Center for nearly 26,000 years, so this particular ‘time’ is very significant. The oldest accounts from ancient civilizations on Earth like the Maya have calculated this time precisely to a ‘time’ of an End & a Beginning of an Age of Time. It will not literally be the ‘end of the world’ as many dooms-day prophets suggest but perhaps the beginning of it. Many End Times Biblical researchers believe that if these particular astronomical events are signaling the advent of the AntiChrist to come, then perhaps the Rapture, of the Church is on the verge of occurring.
According to the Book of Revelation, the AntiChrist is coming to the Earth; upon a Christ-rejecting humanity. If Dec 21, 2012 is to be the start of this prophetic End of Days event, it will be a time when the Earth will enter into the last final year countdown of its history. The occult & luciferians promise their ‘Golden Age’ to come but it will be one of mass murder & chaos. The Bible declares that the LORD will actually allow for the AntiChrist to have direct control & absolute power for 42 months or 1260 days. Many Bible Scholars believe this is to be the 2nd Half of a 7-Year long Tribulation Period often referred to as the ‘Time of Jacob’s Trouble’ because it will have to do with the Holy Land, Israel, Jerusalem, & the 3rd Rebuild Jewish Temple.
The AntiChrist, referred in the Bible as the ‘BEAST’ will be infused & empowered by the Dragon, or lucifer/satan himself. It will be lucifer that possesses the AntiChrist in physical form the last years of this current world age. This will lead up to the Millennial Kingdom of Christ is to be established on Earth but not before the AntiChrist & the False Prophet are cast ALIVE into the Lake of Fire; no Jury or Appeal Courts to be had.
Nonetheless, the speculation of the end of the Mayan Calendar being a possible AntiChrist cosmic event gives the opportunity to consider its timing of Dec 21, 2012 & the cosmic symbology surrounding it. The Bible does clearly state that an AntiChrist will be revealed in the End of Days, but only after the Rapture of the Church occurs. As to a possible time gap between the Rapture & the identification of the AntiChrist? That will remain to be seen. Until that time, such astronomical events that will deal with the symbology of Dec 21, 2012 can only give us a ‘picture’ of what possibly is to occur.
