Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced last week that Iran is determined to eliminate Israel. In an interview with a Lebanese television network, he added that “whoever is for humanity should also be for eradicating the Zionist regime.” It is no wonder Israeli leaders have stated that they cannot allow Iran to obtain nuclear weapons.

Thus, as Iran moves closer to nuclear capability, Israel draws nearer to launching a military attack on the terrorist regime. Though a military attack by Israel will not likely bring down the Ahmadinejad regime, there is a great possibility that the Iranian opposition movement would take advantage of the resulting chaos of an attack to depose the regime. This result would align with end-times Bible prophecy very well for three reasons.

The first reason concerns the end-times treaty predicted in the Bible. Daniel 9:27 prophecies a future seven-year treaty with Israel that will lead to the return of Christ. (The reference to “many” in the verse is a reference to the Jews. “Many” is used elsewhere in Daniel to refer to the Jews, and the context of 9:24-27 focuses on the Jews. See Apocalypse 2012: The Ticking of the End Time Clock-What Does the Bible Say? for evidence that the six infinitive phrases in verse 24 point to the return of Christ to establish God’s kingdom upon the earth.) This treaty appears to be more than a global treaty; in fact, it seems to be connected to world leaders proclaiming “peace and security.” However, if there is one culprit that has attempted to obstruct a treaty with the Jewish nation, it is Iran. In fact, some experts, including Israeli leadership, believe that it has been Iran that has been the greatest obstacle toward a treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. If so, then the current Iranian government needs to be deposed before the end-times treaty can be confirmed.

The second reason the removal of the Ahmadinejad regime would pave the way toward the end-times fulfillment of Bible prophecy concerns world leaders proclaiming “peace and security,” as per 1 Thessalonians 5:3. At the time of the signing of the seven-year treaty with Israel, the world will believe it has finally achieved “peace and security.” For that scenario to arise, terrorism will need to be defeated-or at least, appear to be defeated. In order for terrorism to suffer defeat, the current Iranian regime, which is the biggest promoter of terrorism in the world today, will have to be deposed.

Imagine – Stephen Hawking, who some have called the “Einstein of Today,” preaching in the inner city streets of London – wearing a sandwich board sign that proclaims, “Repent for the End is Near.”

Does that sound unlikely to happen? Well maybe, considering that Mr. Hawking just wrote in his new book: “The Grand Design,” – that the laws of physics really don’t need a God to explain the creation (or the destruction) of the universe: “Because there is a law such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. Spontaneous creation is the reason there is something rather than nothing, why the universe exists, why we exist. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the universe going” (Stephen Hawking).

However, many other scientists these days are taking more of a prophetic position when discussing 2012. There are presently 7 zealous groups (see below) preaching that the end of days will come in less than 26 months (December, 2012), and 5 of these groups – are from the scientific community.

7 Signs Predicting the End of Days in 2012

1. The Earth’s Magnetic Field – Scientists predict that the earth’s magnetic fields (north and south poles) that shield us from most of the sun’s radiation will swap places in 2012, causing enough ultraviolet rays to kill everything that it touches (nasa.gov).

2. Sun Storms – Solar experts from around the world who monitor the sun are reporting that solar storms have recently been bombarding the earth with a lot of radiation energy that has been knocking out power grids and destroying satellites. They are calculating that this activity will get worse and predict that it will reach its deadly peak in the year 2012 (nasa.gov).

3. Super Volcano – Scientists report that the Yellowstone National Park volcano in the United States is steadily building up pressure. It has a pattern of erupting every 700,000 years, and we are way overdue. Geologists are predicting its next Big Bang in 2012, will fill the atmosphere with ash, block the sun and plunge the earth into a frozen winter that could last up to 17,000 years (nasca.org).

4. The Atom Smasher – European Scientists are building the world’s biggest particle accelerator designed to smash atoms together to find out what makes the universe tick. Scientists around the world are predicting disastrous results when this machine is turned on for its first serious experiment in 2012. They believe that it could create mini black holes that would crush the earth into a super-dense blob the size of a watermelon (cbsnews.com).

5. The Physicists – Berkley University physicists have determined that the earth is well overdue for a major catastrophic event, and they have calculated and predicted with a 99% certainty that we’re all going to die in 2012 (millerinstitute.berkeley.edu).

6. The Mayan Calendar – The Mayans were the first to predict the end of the world on December 21, 2012. They were very good at building highly accurate astrological equipment out of stone, and they managed to calculate the length of the lunar moon as 329.53020 days, only 34 seconds out – thousands of years ago. Some are saying that since they were able to calculate the lunar cycle – their end of the world prediction must also be right on target (usetoday.com).

7. The Bible – Some Christian groups are proclaiming that interpretations of the Book of Revelation predict the date for the final battle between good and evil (Armageddon), will be in 2012 (gnmagizine.org).

Since I do not have a scientific background, I will refer you to Mr. Hawking concerning the first five scientific prophecies. To be fare he was quoted as saying: “We’re not saying there is no God, we’re saying there is no need for God to explain the universe, and I agree with him on that. I will briefly comment on ancient religions and their apocalyptic predictions, but will save the commentary for the sixth reason for the Mayan archeologist experts. This article will primarily focus on ancient religious manuscripts including biblical scriptures in an attempt to answer the following two questions and will be divided into two parts:

All around the world, people are asking, “Is the end of world near?”

This may be particularly true for Christians, who can see several of the signs of the end that were predicted in the Bible. Whether you’re looking forward to the end or dreading it, the signs are there. Take a look at some of the prophecies.

“And many false prophets will arise and mislead many.” Matthew 24:11

There’s no doubt that there have been many people who have risen to such a level that they are able to lead people astray. Jim Jones and David Koresh are often mentioned because these individuals actually claimed to be the messiah, but I don’t think that the prophecy alludes only to people like this.

Perhaps even more dangerous are the “prophets” that are more mainstream who are leading people astray. Some would say that President Obama could be a prophet that’s leading the people astray, while others may argue that the leaders of the political right, such as Rush Limbaugh, are the ones truly leading people astray.

“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.” Matthew 24:7

There’s no doubt that the world is rife with war and there are a number of people throughout the world that go hungry each day. With the economic problems in America, the issue of hunger is no longer confined to the third world. Many Americans do not get enough to eat. There are also many earthquakes throughout the world.

“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.” II Timothy 3:1-5,7
