This sermon was first published a while back, before the devastating Japan earthquake(s).
I do believe this is a good time to BRING IT TO YOUR ATTENTION ONCE AGAIN.
You are informed, but, I pray, not afraid, for you are in 'good Hands' with the Lord.
POCKET SERMON 8: "HERE COMES THE SUN: 2012 PROPHECIES FOR YOU
BY REVEREND BARBARA SEXTON (first published: JANUARY 13, 2010)
Dear Ones Healing Ministry-Where Science Meets the Cross!
Take this little Sermonette, print it and share it.Dear Ones:
I believe that people who have a basic understanding of what's going on around them will not be so 'afraid' of events happening, especially those which are out of our control. Therefore, I want to address a few basic concepts regarding the flubbub over all things 2012. Surely by now you've been bombarded by huge amounts of 2012 predictions and wonder what to think about all of it, just as I do.
First, we all basically understand that earthquakes result from shifts in tectonic plates. The earth has a hot, molten core and when it 'acts up', energy is directed towards the surface somewhere on the earth and it 'cracks' as an earthquake.
Then we have a similar situation on the sun, only on the sun, when the energy on the SURFACE "acts up", producing a solar flare, the energy (yes, besides being thrown out into space) is also transferred INWARDLY , thus producing what are known as SUNQUAKES.
Why am I telling you this? It is because the scientific community is convinced that a series of solar flares will occur before and around that infamous December 21, 2012 date. It is predicted that these flares will produce many large SUNQUAKES, which in turn will disrupt the surface of the sun and produce yet more energy-emitting solar flares.
Solar flare energy is measured by all sorts of parameters including proton, electron, 'magnetic field', 'plasma', etc emissions. If you want to see interesting pictures and graphs of these things, here is a link: http://solarmonitor.org/index.php On the right side of the screen, click on the links that will lead you to various interesting graphs. One does not need to be an astrophysicist to tell from photos and graphs that things are active at this time in history.
Here is what you should bear in mind: Before any major EVENTS occur here on earth, there will be disturbances in SOLAR activity. As long as you have access to a computer, you will be able to prepare for these events. I'm not saying that the earth will be totally devastated, but I AM saying that some of the earth will suffer destruction. So you know, a series of solar events preceded the Haitian earthquakes. And though it's been lost in the translation, there have also recently been substantial earthquakes in California, the Philippines and elsewhere, ALSO due to recent solar history. Noting the trends is very useful for those who are not afraid to know a bit as we live in faith.
Is it time to panic? No. Is it time to be realistic? Yes. Is it time to prepare? Yes. Is all this predicted in Scripture? YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!
The Great Commission: 16Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. 17When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Mt 28:16-17 (NIV)
My Dear Ones, help those who are lost in their understanding of things and introduce them to the Redemptive Power of Jesus Christ. As many mothers and grandmothers and I do, don't you wonder how in the world anyone, young or old, can possibly manage with all the strife in the world without having a spiritual base in life
"18Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Mt 28:18-20 (NIV)
If you've never really evangelized before, now is the time to consider it. Share the comfort of your faith and spread that GOOD NEWS. Not only CAN you do it, but you SHOULD do it, no matter what may come on December 21, 2012.
