This is the year in which the ancient, pagan Mayan Calendar changes to a New Age, an age in which a Messiah is supposed to arise. Listen to the official write-up from a New Age website.
"“It is my great honor and privilege as Master Quetzalcoatl to return to Earth in this overt fashion to spearhead so to speak and bring to your attention the I AM University End of the Mayan Calendar and Countdown Project! As you might know, I Am Quetzalcoatl, Grand Master of the Mayan days … You all know that the Mayan calendar as has been channeled and introduced to the Earth in the Ancient Days from Higher Cosmic Sources, ends in the year 2012 – on December 21st at 21:21:59 pm to be precise. This exact date and time marks the Official Ending of the Kali Yuga or Dark Age and the Official Birth of the Age of the Christ / Buddha / Krishna / Mohammed / Moses, and God! It is December 21st 2012 at 22:00 pm which marks the Official Return or Second Coming of the Christ, Imam Mahdi, Buddha Maitreya, Kalki Avatar, Great Tao, and Messiah!”(“Channeled Message of Master Quetzalcoatl on the I AM University End of the Mayan Calendar and Birth of the Golden Age Project!”, I AM University, http://www.iamuniversity.ch/Channeled-Message-of-Master )
Notice that this Mayan Messiah, whose name is "Master Quetzalcoatl", is going to claim to be the "Christ Consciousness Spirit" which inhabited all the original founders of all the major religions since the dawn of Civilization: "Christ / Buddha / Krishna / Mohammed / Moses."
Then, just to make it all-encompassing, he throws in "God". The New Age Maitreya the Christ plans to make the same claim! In fact, Master Quetzalcoatl and Master Maitreya will be one and the same person! He will be the Antichrist of the Bible!
Notice, also, that Master Quetzalcoatl is also claiming to be God, as he uses the Biblical words denoting God, 'I AM', the same words Jesus used to refer to Himself as God! But, why should we be surprised, since the Bible prophecies:
"And the king shall do according to his will; he shall exalt himself and magnify himself above every god and shall speak astonishing things against the God of gods and shall prosper till the indignation be accomplished, for that which is determined by God shall be done." (Daniel 11:36, Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary)
I find this use of the words, "I AM" by the demon master behind Master Quetzalcoatl very 'astonishing', don't you? (Read more)
As an overview, the author goes onto say that the VISA chief claims they are working toward a cashless society, and what will occur to those countries who do not comply; Prince William is the probable Antichrist; and numerology along with its esoteric meaning of the number 11 make the year 2012 the year of the Antichrist.
He concludes that lukewarm Christians need to wake up - that you need to immediately ask Him for forgiveness and for renewal. And, if you have never accepted Jesus Christ as Savior, we are approaching End of the Age. Receive your free gift of salvation now, while you still have a chance to serve him.
