Why the World Won't End Tomorrow

The 2012 Phenomenon, or 2012ology, is the study and belief that tomorrow, 21st December 2012, is the day of the apocalypse.  The theories and ideas come from the Mayan calendar which has a certain climax arriving on this day, and theories of what will happen span from an asteroid heavy death to a worldwide acid trip.

Academics and conspiracy theorists alike debate whether this date really will be the end of the world or not but if the Bible has anything to say about the subject, and I believe it does, we can gather that we don't have to worry about missing Christmas next week.

'We Were Warned' says the poster of the film inspired by the 2012 phenomenon

There have been predictions of the end of the world throughout history, including one Harold Camping in May 2011, but Jesus had something to say about when this event will happen:
"Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will never pass away. But about this day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father" (Matthew 24: 35-36).
There is a day when the world as we know it will come to an end but it's unknowable to us humans.  In fact, Jesus also goes on to say that it will come when you do not expect, like a thief in the night (Matthew 24:42-44).  No one will be expecting for the end of this age but it could come at any time.  Are you ready for it?
