2012


this must be the most anticipated disaster movie of the year.

let's face it - we are curious to foresee what the future holds, even calamities & events that will cause untold misery & perhaps destroy the world as we know it.


but the irony is that we do not heed the warning signs, least of all from an outdated mayan calendar.
celebrated evangelist billy graham's daughter, anne, was interviewed on The Early Show some years back, & jane clayson asked her, how could God let something like hurricane katrina happen?

anne graham gave an extremely profound & insightful response. she said,"i believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are. but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, get out of our government & get out of our lives. & being the gentleman that He is, i believe He has calmly backed out. how can we expect God to give us His blessings & His protection if we demand He leave us alone?"

hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis & diseases all have left a trail of human suffering but no one knows for sure when the world will actually end.

certainly not Dec 21, 2012.

however, the apostle peter has cautioned us:

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives. 2 Pet 3:10-11

now, we HAVE been warned.

Anne Graham hit right to the nail!!!

my friend came back from the movie feeling disturbed... being an atheist he is, i am really impress at how this movie is impacting people. all we can hope and pray for is .... that this movie gives people the right kinda fear.

I hope to be able to witness the end of the world. I hope it would happen in my lifetime, but somehow I don't think it will happen soon, at least not in 2012 : )

Wanted to see this movie yesterday but because of the "held up", missed the chance. Must go and see this movie. Aiyah, these movie makers sure know how to stress up my blood pressure level!!

Superman,

go on, have a blast at the movies.

doc said...

Zewt,

hope & pray the effect of the impact lasts longer than the movie's run at the cinemas!!

fear of death is a powerful emotion, isn't it?

doc said...

Foongpc,

there are already signs that the end is approaching but no one except the Father knows exactly when.

doc said...

Ilene,

you should not have any blood pressure problem since the doctors have just given you a clean bill of health.

hope you enjoyed the movie.
