...And So It Begins

It's twice as bad as 666, right?
People who haven't given a fig about the Mayans at any time in their lives are now cracking wise about "Doom Calendars" as if the Mayans were prescient oracles.
Mayans? They lived in a tropical climate, BUT did they live at the beach, like you or I would? No!
Did they invent air guitar? No! Did they have computers? Yes-but they only ran Windows NT.
Of course, no one actually believes that the world will end on 12-21-12, which the Mayans may or may(an) not have predicted...but something is up.
We joke about what worries us. It's a defense mech-if I can laugh about a Hitler's funny little mustache, for example, he doesn't seem so scary.
Likewisenheimer, people joke about God, Who IS scary.
Oh yes-the End Of The World. Joke away, nervous nellies/normans.
Christians have been talking about the End Times since...well, since the End Times began. Which I suggest may have been when Christ ascended to Heaven in Acts chapter 1:
"9And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking on, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 
10And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. 
11They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

Acts 1:9-11
Did you catch that there at the end of the verses you didn't really look at? He will return again, which has been the hope for every Godly person in every generation since that day.
His return will mark the end of the world we know-this world of corruption and war and troubles will pass away. You may not LIKE what happens next, but I am loving it-a world of peace and good will towards Man, a world ruled by Christ from His city, Jerusalem.
I've spent 53 years (so far) in your world of botched human experiments in governance. If you survive past the tribulation period (of which the Mayans are silent) you will be living in my God's world. No joke.

If there were a humorous overlay to Reality, if it were possible for such things to be funny, it would be hilarious if Christ did return on December 21, 2012.
Here's why:
according to doctrine, the event known as the taking up or rapture of the Church is the next thing that will happen, ushering in the front End of the End times.
Millions, all of the Christians that you know, all of us from every palace or prison cell around the world-gone in a half a second or less.
For that to happen on a day when people are joking that the world is supposed to end...comedy gold.
It will happen when God wants it to happen. Until then I will continue to Praise God and live as an alien in this unkempt world.
