2012 Decoded: USING BIBLICAL TIMELINE & SYMBOLISM

“The Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one World Age into another. The message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear…”

In the year 2000 the world made its transition from one biblical era into another. The Bible refers to this period as “the time of reformation," the word reformation meaning the act of reforming; the state of being reformed, a time when carnal sacrifice is to give way to spiritual sacrifice, mind-body disciplines giving way to a heart- discipline. We are precisely where we were 2000 years ago when John the Baptist gave way to Jesus the Christ, illustrating a transition from repentance to perfection through spiritual works. But mankind has not been performing these spiritual works, making little spiritual advancement due to the carnal-minded doctrines of religion, which reject such works, rejecting the spiritual word of God, denying the son. If mankind accepts this transition by doing the spiritual works, which Jesus spoke of and illustrated for us while he was on this earth, the result will be peace, and tranquility—Shiloh. But if he resists this transition, once again, there will be more chaos and destruction, bringing more and more anxiety!

“The Mayans prophesied that from 1999 we have 13 years to realize the changes in our conscious attitude to stray from the path of self-destruction and instead move onto a path that opens our consciousness to integrate us with all that exists.”- Joseph Robert Jochmans

The biblical time of transition took place in the year 2000, giving us 12 years to actualize positive change through a spiritual judgment that takes place in the heart, the number 12 representing judgment. At the end of these twelve years a physical judgment will begin to take place in the earth.

“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea…

This is the travailing of mother earth, revealing the spiritual travailing that should already be taking place in our spiritual mother—our heart. This “time of trouble,” found in the 12th chapter of Daniel, meaning judge of God, is to bring on the spiritual birth in those that have yet to begin this transition.

Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them that were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” Revelation 7:2-4

144,000. The number of days in a Baktun cycle. But it is also a spiritual measure reached through a spiritual judgment— through the spiritual creation process.

“And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.” Matthew 19:28. 

Each tribe has a positive and negative aspect. We are to judge the negative aspects. The number 12 represents judgment, and judging the 12 tribes formulates to 12 x 12, which equals 144, as does the 6 days (6 x 24 = 144) of creation.

“And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits” Revelation 21:17

Those that complete this spiritual judgment enter an invisible wall of protection. These are pure in heart, having made a spiritual sacrifice through which they enter the 1,000 year reign of Christ: 144 (+) or (x) 1,000 = 144,000.

Viewing ancient rituals from a spiritual mind:
What is a common denominator in these rituals?
The sacrificing of the pure and of the innocence.

In the Era of Abraham (some 4000 years ago) Abraham was instructed by God to sacrifice his innocent son. Five hundred years later the Hebrews would be instructed by God to sacrifice a lamb without spot or blemish. In the Era of Isaac (some 2000 years ago) the ritual continued when a human lamb, one without spot or blemish (without sin) was sacrificed. Why would God instruct Abraham to sacrifice his innocent son? To show us, through the ancient language of biblical symbolism, the spiritual act that has taken place in the heart of man. The sacrificing of a spiritual innocence or purity. But in the end, it was not Abraham’s innocent son that was sacrificed, but the ram, symbolizing idolatry— the worshipping of images, which man continues to do by giving reverence to the false religious and self images of his heart through belief—through actions that support them. It is these false images or beliefs that carry the negative and destructive energy, which the earth, symbolizing the heart, is unleashing.

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart.” Psalms 51:17. 

The Mayans mis-interpreted the sacred knowledge. It was not the literal heart that was to be sacrificed, but the impurities that exist within the spiritual heart of man.

Biblical timeline of events that bring us to the year 2012:
3500 years ago the “two witnesses,” Moses and Aaron, appeared to deliver the children of Israel out of physical bondage. 2000 years ago John and Jesus appeared to show us how to be delivered out of spiritual bondage. 1500 years separated the two. In 460AD (encoded in scripture) the spiritual teachings of Jesus are completely covered over, buried under years of religious iniquity. In 1960AD, the foundation laid by Jesus' spiritual teachings was re-established. It is upon this spiritual foundation of spiritual truth that the third temple, a spiritual temple, is to be built. 1500 years separated the two. 1960 + 46 = 2006.

“Forty and six years was this temple in building.” 

The third temple is complete. A spiritual temple built in the spiritual era of Jacob. The year “2006” and “atomic holocaust” were found encoded in the mathematical code of the Bible. Not occurring as a physical event suggests a spiritual event. The word atomic means a unit of matter; of or employing atomic energy. The Spirit is energy (Genesis 1:2). The word is matter (Genesis 1:3)— “And the word was made flesh.” (John 1:14). This word was matter in the good sense, employing the positive and creative energy of a holy spirit. Man’s word (see Jeremiah 23:36) is matter in the evil sense— an invisible sinful flesh formed inside of our physical flesh, employing the negative and destructive energy of an unholy spirit. The word holocaust means a sacrificial offering consumed entirely by flames. It is man’s unholy spirit and unrighteous word that is to be entirely consumed in a spiritual holocaust—in the spiritual fire of a spiritual judgment made in a spiritual temple. A sacrifice that will cleanse the heart of its negative and destructive energy, which is manifesting itself in a negative and destructive energy that is building up in the earth, which symbolizes the heart (the anagram is no coincidence). Through this spiritual sacrifice man’s “first heaven and earth” passes away, his old world (or way of life) giving way to “a new heaven and a new earth,” symbolizing a new mind and a new heart.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” Revelation 21.

This is not achieved by belief in any of the many man-made doctrines of religion, or by any of the many ritualistic mind-body practices, but through the creation of a spiritual heaven and earth— through 6 days of spiritual works— 6 x 24 = 144. It will be a steep spiritual climb, symbolized by Jacob’s ladder (Genesis 28:12), and which Moses illustrated by climbing the mount. Will mankind enter this new world order in the good sense? Not likely, as that would require him to change that which has been governing him in the spiritual sense, and it takes time for the negative and destructive energy of the heart to be transformed into positive and constructive or creative energy.

"Thy ways and thy doings have procured these things unto thee; this is thy wickedness, because it is bitter, because it reacheth unto thine heart. My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou has heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled… For my people is foolish, they have not known me; they are sottish children, and they have none understanding: they are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge." Jeremiah 4:18-22

The World has passed through two of the three patriarchal eras:
“The Era of Abraham,” which began 4000 years ago, associated with the Father, and the “The Era of Isaac,” which began 2000 years ago, and is associated with the Son. The third and final “Era of Jacob,” which began in the year 2000, and is associated with the Holy Spirit, brings with it a spiritual taxation, which is to make a choice between two opposing forces, symbolized by Isaac’s two sons. Esau, who forfeited his birthright for a mess of red pottage, symbolizing man’s dangerous arrogance. And Jacob, who reclaimed his birthright. We choose Esau by continuing as we have for the past 6000 years, resulting in more death, destruction, chaos, and dire cataclysmic changes. We choose Jacob by revitalizing our holy spirit in this final era, resulting in life and peace. In the year 2000 the world entered the 7th day— the 7 thousandth year since the beginning of man’s spiritual decline, symbolized by the fall in the garden. There are seven days. We are in the end of (these seven) days. The Year 2012 was a time of transition, the process of changing from one form, state, activity, or place, to another. The “first Adam” was formed from the dust of the earth on the 7th day. The “last Adam” will be trans-formed from the dust in this present 7th day, the dust symbolizing a spiritual inactivity. But through spiritual works he will be made a quickening spirit.

“The first Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.” 1 Corinthians 15:45.

The word quickening means to revitalize, meaning to impart new life, which is the birth, revitalization, or restoration of man’s holy spirit, returning it to the condition in which he received it from The Creator. It is time for us to begin our spiritual climb from a spiritual decline, which begins by transitioning from a carnal way of thinking to a spiritual way of thinking.

“For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritual minded is life and peace.” Romans 8:6

I can only hope that over the next 5 years many of us will become still, quieting our mind, entering that temple called the heart, discovering and sacrificing the false religious and personal beliefs whose negative and destructive energy is bringing death. Let us be diligent, setting aside mind-body disciplines that serve only to bring us an illusion of peace, setting aside the things that distract us from the spiritual works (see Revelation 2 and 3) that must be performed in order to prepare us spiritually (mentally and emotionally) for the dismal prophecies predicted for our future due to our fallen spiritual state.
