2012 — Is This The End?

Nampa, Idaho (May 10, 2012) — Pacific Press® recently released 2012 and the End of the World by author and speaker, Steve Wohlberg. The 32-page booklet explores the ancient Mayan prediction that the world would end in 2012, and contrasts this theory with biblical truth on the end time and the signs of Christ's second coming.

With the increased interest in this latest doomsday scenario, Wohlberg's advice is clear. "The three angels' message demystifies the topic," he says. "If we boil it down to the simplest language, Heaven's answer is to keep the Ten Commandments through faith in Jesus Christ." This truth underscores Wohlberg's passion: to show the connection between the Ten Commandments and the gospel message and to encourage God's people to lift up the law and the cross as the center of everything.

On October 5 and 6, Wolhberg will conduct "2012 and the End of the World"—a Bible Prophecy Seminar—in the Southern New England Conference. Hope Channel will broadcast the live event, and make it available on simulcast to all churches who register for the event. Reporting from Worcester, Mass., area coordinator, Pastor Barry Kimbrough says, "We've been hard at work for more than a year on this program. Our vision is to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ and the special end-time Bible truths to a large audience. Churches can use it as a reaping or sowing program for it is a message that will educate old, new, and prospective members on the reasons for our faith."

Publicity surrounding Wohlberg's upcoming appearance in an hour-long National Geographic International documentary is expected to add further interest to the seminar. The documentary will draw on Wohlberg's expertise to tie together the large-scale bird, fish, and animal deaths around the world with the increase of natural disasters, and will use the Bible to show the nearness of the end times.

Copies of 2012 and the End of the World will be given to everyone attending the Prophecy Seminar and participating churches are encouraged to provide it to their attendees. Available through local Adventist Book Centers, 2012 and the End of the World can also be ordered online at
