Though we normally would assign this type of material to our SIGNS page, some very interesting predictions and assertions concerning the 2012 Calendar are intriguing given some connection with some Edgar Cayce predictions. But before I begin this I must state that some levels prophecy are not confined to the prophets of Israel alone, but can be seen in many of the ancient cultures. Many ancient cultures exhibit deep profound wisdom. But the prophecies contained in the Hebrew Bible are heads above the prophecy and wisdom of the nations, and have shown themselves to be accurate in all their details. A Jewish proverb states:
“If a person tells you that there is wisdom among the nations, believe him, as it says in Obadiah, “I will destroy the wise ones from Edom and the intelligence from Mount Esau.” If one says that there is Torah among the nations, believe him not.”
The Torah text, which has been hand written and passed down in an unbroken chain of transmission from the time of Moshe to this very day, reminds us that if a prophet foretells of an event that comes to pass but tries to convinces you to follow after other gods, you are not to heed that prophet but you must put him to death (Deuteronomy 13). This tells us that even idolators can even possess the prophetic gift and that the foretelling and fulfillment of a prophecy does not make you a spokesman for GOD. Many people today believe that some one who heals or predicts the future must be sent from HaShem, but as you can see that idea has no basis in the Word of HaShem and those who follow such false prophets are fools. But I am digressing.
The Mayan Calendar
The predominate view on the conclusion of the Mayan long count calendar is that it will end on December 21, 2012 of the current Gregorian calendar. However there is a dissenting viewpoint from Dr. Carl Jonan Callerman that the Mayan Cycles will end on October 28, 2011. According to researchers like Ian Xel Lungold and Dr. Carl Johan Callerman, the true Mayan end date is 13 months and three weeks sooner than the more modern or commonly accepted date. Why the difference? The researchers claim that the Dreamspell or 13 lunar-month calendar upon which Arguelles and others based their calculations does not take into account the quarterly leap day(Feb.29) introduced into the Gregorian calendar by Pope Gregory in 1582, whereas the true Mayan calendar does. This pushes the end date almost 14 months ahead of schedule to Dec.21st, 2012(as calculated from Aug.of 3115 BC).
The Spanish expeditions to the New World yielded Mayan texts which were taken back to the Vatican where the Church spent some 5 months reconciling the Mayan Long Count calendar with the soon to be released Gregorian calendar so that the end of the Mayan calendar occurred on Dec. 21, 2012 at 1:11am. [See 2012 the Online Movie]. Some experts say that Callermans view should not be dismissed since his calculations are geared towards the beginning of the end, not the end of the end, so to speak. Callerman’s date [10/28/2011] coincides with the new moon of Cheshvan (Hebrew calendar).

Edgar Cayce and the Events of 2011
Edgar Cayce known as “The Sleeping Prophet” and “America’s Greatest Mystic”, is one of America’s famous psychics. He wanted people to think of him as a healer and not a psychic. While there were literally thousands of predictions that Edgar Cayce made before his death on January 3rd 1945, many of them have not come to pass. But to his credit many have seen fulfillment.
In August of 1936, Edgar Cayce, when asked, “What great change or the beginning of what change, if any, is to take place in the earth in the year 2000 to 2001 A.D.?” answered, “When there is a shifting of the poles. Or a new cycle begins.” On a Nova broadcast (November 18, 2003) we learned that the magnetic current had reversed. A NBC NIGHTLY NEWS broadcast on January 11 2011 (this year) it was made public that the magnetic pole was moving, a phenomenon that could result in a POLE SHIFT which scientist say has not happened for 780,000 years.
“When there is the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea…or in the Mediterranean and the Mount Etna area, then we know it has begun.” On January 13th 2011, Mt Etna in Italy erupted. Mt Etna is one of the most active volcanoes, labelled as a ‘Decade Volcano’ by the UN. While it’s eruption certainly is nothing shocking or unpredictable, given some of Cayce’s other predictions, it certainly should be taken into account.
“Strifes will arise through the period… watch for them in Libya and Egypt…”Cayce spoke of strife arising near the Davis Straits (Greenland), and in Libya, and in Egypt, in Ankara, and in Syria; through the straits around those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf. While there has been no problems arising from Greenland, we are all certainly aware of the so-called Arab Spring with revolutions starting in both Egypt (now under the control of the Muslim Brotherhood) and in Libya, where just a few days ago Libyan strongman Gaddafi was killed by US supported rebels. It is almost certain that Al-Keida will gain control of that country. Both revolutions began within three weeks of one another – January 25th and February 15th, respectively.
This past year we also saw Turkey, once an ally of Israel, turn on Israel over the Gaza Flotilla Incidents and begin making moves to position itself as the leader of the Muslim world in the Middle East. Turkey threatened Israel with military force if it did not retreat back into it’s own backyard. And Syria is certainly facing a military showdown with NATO and Israel. Given Bashar’s choices, he must either go into exile into Iran or attack Israel as he has threatened to do many times.
Cayce and the Japanese Disaster
Another startling prediction by Cayce was that, “The greater portion of Japan will go into the Sea.” On March 11, 2011 Japan was hit with the worst earthquake and Tsunami in there history. While Japan certainly did not entirely sink, the Tsunami that hit Japan has sunken a certain section of the Fukushima area as noted by some scientists. The nuclear devastation is by most accounts the worst nuclear accident in history. It has been noted by ISRAEL IN PROPHECY that unbeknownst to most people, Japan was in negotiations with Iran, to supply Iran with certain nuclear supplies that would have enabled them to produce a nuclear weapon. There is no doubt that Iran is seeking to destroy Israel with such weapons.
I call it Convergence. The many different players and pieces are moving into their respective positions. This year has been one of the most tumultuous in recent memory. Forces and countries are aligning themselves. Israel has become the pariah nation of the world. The Palestinians continue plotting the overthrow of the Jewish Nation. Heaven forbid that Palestine ever become a nation. Turkey, a prime player in the Gog Magog scenario, is asserting itself and could lead to the re-formation of the Khalifah, the Muslim Empire.
The Earth is quaking and moving, possibly from the gravitational effects of an object far out in the celestial realms, coming ever closer day by day. Some call it the Destroyer. On the 28th of October 2011, the Earth, Venus, Mercury, The Sun and Jupiter will align, something that hasn’t happened in 26,000 years
October 28th 2011 is 5 days away. With some help from Heaven, it will be like any other day……… but then again maybe not.
