The Watering Hole: Wednesday, October 6, 2010 – Hump Day

12/21/2012 has long been touted by some as the end of the world; Armageddon; the Day Christ Comes and Claims His Kingdom On Earth.

Really.

Really?

If so, where the heck are the two witnesses?

3And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. 4These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 5And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. 6These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. (Book of Revelations, Chapter 11, verses 3-6)

These two witnesses are supposed to prophesy for 3 1/2 years before God calls the game. That means we should have been hearing from them starting back in the summer of 2009. But we’ve continued to have rain, and no one’s been accused of turing water into blood, or calling forth all kinds of plagues.

So, either this part of the Book of Revelations is wrong, or those who predict the end of the world in 2012 are wrong. Something to keep in mind as certain Chrisians approach the end of the Mayan Calendar.
