A Few Days From The End Of The 13th Maya Baktun Calendar in Maya Riviera we leave here a compilation of the meaning and analogies of the Maya’s 13th Baktun:
The Baktun Mayan Calendar, Judas, and the end of mankind in this system
The Long Count Mayan Calendar or the Baktun Mayan Calendar has some astonishing features for a bible student.
It is described in wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maya_calendar
The creation date for this calendar was August 11, 3114 BC Gregorian (true solar).
It has 360 day years (Tuns) and 20 year periods called Katuns and 400 year periods (144,000 days long) called Baktuns. We know today that the sun is 400x larger than the moon and is 400x further away from the earth than the moon is. This is why the moon fits perfectly over the sun in a total solar eclipse. But how did the Mayans know this? For in scriptural terms 400x is 400 years which are 144,000 days, which is the largest time period they used in their calendar!
We also know that the Kingdom of God will be run by 144,000 heavenly kings and 144,000 earthly kings. In fact the sun and the moon declare this since the one dominates the other by 400x which is 144,000 days a king for a day in bible symbolism.
So looking at this calendar spiritually, it has heavenly knowledge within it that was not known to mankind at the time it was used by the Mayans, at least 1400 years ago.
Now the 13th Baktun, (the 13th 144,000 day period since the Mayan creation date of August 11, 3114 BC) ends on 2012December21 according to most internet sources (wikipedia has it ending on December20).
But 12x 146097 days (12x 400 true solar years) takes us from 3114August11 BC to 1687August11 AD. And then 118836 more solar days take us to 2012December21 (for a total of 144,000x 13 = 1,872,000 solar days). So if the first day of the calendar is August11, then the last day of the 13th Baktun is 2012December20 since this is an inclusive count. The reader can try this on the BLC which can be downloaded here.
So if we identify the end of the 13th Baktun with the end of Adamic mankind in this system and the 14th Baktun with the start of the full rulership of mankind in the next system by 144,000 heavenly 1NC kings and 144,000 earthly 2NC kings, then the Mayan calendar is saying that we must have mankind in this system ending on 2012Tebbeth2/3 (which is 2012December20). But we presently have the last rapture of the faithful starting on 2012Chislev24 and ending on 2012Tebbeth24/25 and we have the last adamic man dying on or before 2013Iyyar27. So after 260 chronological mistakes we arrive at the same month for the end of faithful mankind that the Mayans had 1400 years ago. That is too much of a coincidence.
This looks to us like an attempt by Satan to upstage the work of the last true church.
In that regard the second true church may have got as far as the LWs have presently reached chronologically. So the date of the end of adamic man might have been known before the first recorded copies of the Mayan calendar came about. In any event there is an incredible agreement between LW chronology for the end of adamic man and the Mayan calendar chronology for the end of the 13th 144,000 day age since their creation date!
Since this calendar is so full of 400x and 144,000x it may well have started with the first humans to be born again. So August11, 3114 may be the creation date of the first humans to be born again by holy spirit baptism. The Mayan calendar may therefore be a version of the calendar used in heaven.
Alternatively 3114August11 could have been the day when the demons descended or when they had their first Nephilim children with human women. In other words Satan was copying the activity of the heavenly calendar with his demonic human procreation.
So the entire period of 13 baktuns would begin with the first humans being born again as angels and end with last humans being raptured to be angels. In fact Satan would not be permitted to possess humans unless they had associated angels. So the holy spirit baptism preceded the demonic possession or demonic descent.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A date inscription in the Mayan Long Count on the east side of Stela C from Quirigua showing the date for the last Creation. It is read as 18.104.22.168.0 4 Ajaw 8 Cumku and is usually correlated as 11 or 13 August, 3114 BCE on the Gregorian calendar. The date of 22.214.171.124.0 4 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in is usually correlated as 21 or 23 December 2012.
The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs according to which cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on 21 December 2012. This date is regarded as the end-date of a 5125-year-long cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Various astronomical alignments and numerological formulae have been proposed as pertaining to this date, though none have been accepted by mainstream scholarship.
A New Age interpretation of this transition is that the date marks the start of time in which Earth and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 21 December 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era. Others suggest that the date marks the end of the world or a similar catastrophe. Scenarios suggested for the end of the world include the arrival of the next solar maximum, an interaction between Earth and the black hole at the center of the galaxy, or Earth’s collision with a planet called “Nibiru”.
Scholars from various disciplines have dismissed the idea of such cataclysmic events occurring in 2012. Professional Mayanist scholars state that predictions of impending doom are not found in any of the extant classic Maya accounts, and that the idea that the Long Count calendar “ends” in 2012 misrepresents Maya history and culture, while astronomers have rejected the various proposed doomsday scenarios as pseudoscience, stating that they conflict with simple astronomical observations.

1. Who are “the Maya”?
The term “the Maya” is about as nebulous as “the Americans” or “the Europeans.” Technically, “the Maya” refers to a wide variety of Maya peoples, both ancient and modern, whose cultural heritage includes one of about thirty different Mayan languages. Their native territory is located in eastern Mexico (especially Chiapas and the Yucatan Peninsula), Guatemala, Belize, Honduras, and western El Salvador. Although it is impossible to say for certain what languages were spoken, archaeologists trace the origins of Maya culture back at least 3000 years on the basis of continuities in pottery styles, architecture, burials, and other features. Contrary to popular beliefs, the descendants of ancient Mayans never disappeared or “went away.” In fact, there are probably more Mayan speakers today than at any time in history: About six million altogether. During what’s known as the Classic Period (AD 200-900), the ancient Maya were organized into polities similar to ancient Greek city-states, including a rivalry between two main centers–Tikal and Calakmul–that was as heated as that between Athens and Sparta. What we call “the ancient Maya” were never unified under a common government or religious system. They were organized as warring states whose ideologies differed and were modified according to the needs of individual rulers. The beliefs and traditions of different Maya settlements varied enormously. That makes it difficult to say much with certainty about “the Maya” belief systems. In fact, the very concept of “the Maya” is a modern convention of questionable value for describing the complexity of these cultures.

2. What is the Long Count calendar and what does it have to do with 2012?
The ancient Maya tracked time according to increasingly larger cycles. How they did this has been understood in detail since the late 19th century, when American journalist Joseph T. Goodman successfully deciphered the complicated system of the Maya calendar. He published his results in 1897, describing a “Long Count” system of a “count of days” based on several units or periods of increasingly larger size: the k’in (1 day), winal (20 days), tun (360 days), k’atun (7200 days), and bak’tun (144,000 days). The ancient Maya kept track of time using this system, which was combined with additional counts of 260 days (the tzolk’in) and 365 days (the haab) to produce Long Count dates. Goodman believed there was also a larger “Great Cycle” of 13 bak’tuns (1,872,000 days) and determined that the start of the present Great Cycle was on 126.96.36.199.0 4 Ajaw 8 Cumk’u (that is 13 bak’tunob, 0 k’atunob, 0 tunob, 0 winalob, and 0 k’inob, followed by counts on the tzolk’in and haab). Later scholarship showed that this was a sacred “Creation” date for the ancient Maya, who referred to it in their mythology as a kind of “birth” of the present world. The Gregorian equivalent of this date is August 11, 3114 BCE. The next day was 0.0.0.0.1, with each day clicking another unit in the count. According to scholars who support Goodman’s idea of a 13-bak’tun Great Cycle, the current period will conclude on 188.8.131.52.0 4 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in, the Gregorian equivalent of which is December 21, 2012 (or possibly December 23, or yet something else…)
It’s important to remember that calendars are complicated! The Gregorian calendar system, currently used in the Americas, Europe, and other countries with heavily Western influence, is one that carries with it the legacy of many changes, some of which originated with the Roman (Julian) calendar with modifications under Pope Gregory XIII (1502-1585), the head of the Roman Catholic church at the time of the Spanish Conquest (for whom the calendar is named). Explaining the magical or divinatory aspects that many people believe about them is even more complicated, but it is a problem literally as old as time.
3. Does the Maya calendar end on December 21, 2012?
No. It’s not even clear that the date will represent the end of a 13-bak’tun cycle. Goodman’s theory was that the present 13-bak’tun Great Cycle was the 54th in an even larger Grand Era, comprised of 73 Great Cycles. However, some ancient Maya daykeepers appear to have favored counts in 20-bak’tun cycles. The Maya calendar does not end with a 13- or 20-bak’tun count. The Maya projected dates far into the future. For example, one inscription predicts that the anniversary of the coronation of K’inich Janaab’ Pakal, a 7th century Maya king of Palenque, will still be celebrated in AD 4772. Epigrapher David Stuart has pointed out that there are Maya dates that project farther into the future than modern astronomers project backward to the origin of the universe some 13.7 billion years ago.
Scholars are currently divided over whether the correct Gregorian correlation with 184.108.40.206.0 4 Ajaw 3 K’ank’in is December 21 or December 23, 2012 or even some other date. The date of December 21 has been especially popular for many intepretations because it happens to fall on a solstice (winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern). Whether this was intentional or fortuitous remains a matter of debate.
4. What’s the origin of the claims about the end of the world?
Shortly after Goodman’s work was first published, German scholar Ernst Förstemann interpreted the symbols and images on the last page of an pre-Hispanic Maya book called the Dresden Codex as references to the end of the world in a cataclysmic flood that he interpreted as “destruction of the world,” “apocalypse,” and “the end of the world.” Förstemann’s ideas were repeated by American archaeologist Sylvanus Morley in a 1915 book on ancient Maya hieroglyphic writing. Morley added his own embellishments, writing “Finally, on the last page of the manuscript, is depicted the Destruction of the World… Here, indeed, is portrayed with a graphic touch the final all-engulfing cataclysm” in the form of a Great Flood. These comments were later repeated in Morley’s popular book The Ancient Maya (1946). Mayanists disagree about these interpretations, with some suggesting that the image represents the annual arrival of the rainy season, not a cataclysmic flood.
The ideas of Goodman, Förstemann, and Morley influenced American archaeologist Michael Coe, of Yale University, who also interpreted elements of Aztec mythology, particularly the “Legend of the Five Suns” (first recorded in the 1550s) as evidence for ancient beliefs in cyclical periods of destruction. He summarized his ideas in a popular textbook, The Maya (1966). In each edition (there have now been eight), Coe associated the completion of the 13th bak’tun with “Armageddon,” a reference from Christian beliefs expressed in the New Testament (in the Book of Revelation) that there will be a final, world-destroying battle associated with the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. He also noted (based on Aztec beliefs) that the present world would be destroyed by earthquakes. Coe never thought this would actually occur. He was simply trying to express what he thought the ancient Maya actually believed using Cold War lingo so as to grab the imagination of his readers.
