Hi anyone heard the recent comments of the Pope regarding Revelation 6? Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27904634
He was just basing his comments on the readings at Mass on Sunday, those readings are:
Psalm 16:5, 8-11
Hebrews 10:11-14, 18
24 "But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light,
25 and the stars will be falling from heaven, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
26 And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory.
27 And then he will send out the angels, and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.
28 "From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts forth its leaves, you know that summer is near.
29 So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that he is near, at the very gates.
30 Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away before all these things take place.
31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
32 "But of that day or that hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
My personal opinion is that the date 12/21/12 is indeed in the bible, if you look at Revelations chapter 12 which is depicting Virgo as this constellation will appear on that date
Chapter 21 is referring to the New Heaven and New Earth
and Chapter 11:11 which is referring to the Resurrection
That is the Mayan date... 12./21/12 at 11:11 UT
My opinion is that the date is NOT the end of the world, so it is okay to understand this date as being important, People think it is a "false prophesy" to speak of this date as significant because of this scripture. However, since the date given is NOT the date of the end of the world, only the end of an era, it is okay to speak of it. It is actually the end of a 26,000 year ERA (or period of precession) and the date is a "marker" for the beginning of the New Era. My personal belief is that it is a date marker for the "Revealing" or "Awakening" or the "Illumination" of consciousness. The 3 days of darkness which has been prophesied by many saints are the three eclipses prior to the date. The date marks the beginning of the New Era of Peace, but it may not happen over night, but is the 'tipping point' of goodness prevailing over evil as a result of the "awakening". My personal belief is that things will be much clearer after this date and people will be "choosing sides" so to speak.
