    Pastor Mark,

    Thank you for writing this book and sharing your wisdom and knowledge on this issue. It has given us a source of truth to direct those that may be filled with fear and anxiety by what they will see and hear in the coming months.

    Recently our family compiled qualities and characteristics from God’s Word for our family mission statement. One of our children added, “we need to do the opposite of the devil”. Which lead us to: giving vs stealing, protecting life vs killing, building up vs destroying, clearly speaking truth vs deceiving and confusing, being salt and light vs darkening the world with vicious schemes. We have been at Faith for a little over a year now and are grateful for the teaching and discipleship that we have received, equipping us to live out this mission as individuals and as a family. Thank You!

    Hi Mark,

    This is off topic, but I just wanted to say I appreciate your work (I just became acquainted with you as I listened to Hocking’s proph conf you were apart of); and I look forward to listenting to your debate with Hank (I’m a futurist btw). I thought you added alot to the Hocking conf., you, IMO, gave it some sharp teeth that it needed . . . so thank you!

    And to bring this back to topic, I’ll have to get your new book here and check it out (when I get the funds . . . so many books, so little money ;-).

    In Christ,

    Bobby

    Dear Mark,
    God Bless You for this site which allowed me to hear common sense and Biblical reference to the subject of 2012. I have read many of your books. I just gave the book you wrote on the Rapture to my daughter. My 11 year old grandson has been fearful of 2012 since the movie has been advertised. I tried to reassure him that only God knows when the end will happen. Now I can let him hear your words, hopefully, to calm his fears. He is a baptised believer.
    Thank you!
    God Bless your work
    In Christ,
    Sandra

    Hi.
    I found your Web Site by Google
    And I wish you the best you can get,
    the peace of God through Jesus Christ.

    Welcome to visit my Site.

    The Bridegroom comes, Come out to meet him. Matt. 25:6.
    From where shall we go out? We shall go out of the great
    Babylon, the great whore. Rev. Chapter 17 and 18. This
    command of the Lord in Rev. 18:4 is now highly topical.

    Never before we have been so nearly Jesus’ coming as we
    are now, but how are God’s people prepared? How is the
    unity in the faith? Sorry, very bad! God’s people are more
    divided now than ever before. Instead of following what
    the Bible teaches about the Assembly of God, they have
    followed Satan’s false assembly doctrine. They believe
    that the Assembly of God is constituted of church systems
    and many religious organizations.

    Most Christians have not yet begun to prepare for Jesus’
    coming. They can speak and write that Jesus shall come,
    and about the signs of the time, yet they do not make any
    preparation to meet Jesus. How can we make a preparation?
    To make preparation and be ready for Jesus’ coming, God’s
    people must get the knowledge of the Assembly of God.

    All God’s people must in the first hand begin to study what
    the Bible teaches about the Assembly of God. What we
    need now before the restoration of the Assembly of God,
    it is humility before God’s word and a forgivable disposition
    to each other.

    The Assembly of God is no Pentecostal church. Please,
    consider what this expression “the Assembly of God” in the
    reality implies. The Assembly of God must be the same as
    the Greek word “ekklesia”, and the Body of Christ. 1 Cor.
    12:12-31. Then it is easy to understand that this has nothing
    to do with the Pentecostal Movement. Pentecostal churches
    have existed about 100 years, but the Assembly of God has
    ever existed since Jesus baptized his first disciples by the
    Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit gave them the new life in Christ
    so that they became born anew. Then the Assembly of God
    was born.

    I’m a Christian and read you latest blog, and like you, only God knows when that ‘final’ day will come. I don’t expect to be here thanks to the ‘Rapture’ and our Lord Jesus Christ. I was, however born with a curious mind and came up on and read a book titled ‘Planet X Forcast and 2012′ by Jacco van der Worp, MSc, and Marshall Masters, and Janice Manning…(all Mensa). They seemed to have brought this subject to light for the public. Interesting book and if you get the book, would you let your readers know what you think. Thank you for so many wonderful books and sharing you knowledge and understanding. I think I have them all and my beliefs ride on the same highway to heaven. May God continue to bless you and your family and inspiration to spread the Word. Thanks, John

    Greetings!

    I’m a highschool journalists from the Philippines and I wanted to write something about this topic. I want to somehow open the eyes of young individual that believes the world will end in 2012 because I strongly believe that God only knows when will be the end as stated in Matthew 24: 35-36.

    Pastor Mark, you enligthened me when I watch in youtube a clip of your guesting in the show prophecy in the news and your statement “We must armed by the truth” made my brave enough to stand in my belief that God is the only way we can survive any tragedies we are into.

    I want to read your book but dont have enough money to buy one, so thanks for you blogs it helps me a lot!

    God bless you!

  11. paula

    thank you so much. I promise to share it to may co journalists in our school paper. This is my address. Block 14 Lot 7 Sampaguita streer, Katipunan Village, Western Bicutan, Taguig, Metro Manila, Philippines,

    Thank you so much! God bless and a merry christmas and a happy new year to you and your family.

    Brother Mark:

    Peace be with you. I finished reading “The Late Great United States” and now I am currently reading your new book “2012: The Bible and the End of the World.” So far your writing is by far an enjoyable experience. God has giving you a great talent of discernment.

    This is what the world truly needs, the truth about the coming storm. Lots of churches do not want to talk of these things. And I find great comfort that God is using you to write books that truly have an impact.

    I have been reading the book of Revelation since my childhood. I have always held a deep fascination with the Apocalypse and the end times. And I research everything that deals with it. Your body of work has truly motivated me to keep on reading the word of God and sharing it with friends and family.

    Keep up the great work brother. You and your family are in my prayers. Stay blessed.

    Dear Mark,
    I cant thank you enough for your appearance at our church. My teenager and his friends have been so caught up in all of this. So I made my son go hear you out. He came out feeling 100% better,and hopes to pass all the info on to his friends. (We tried to take them but with no luck). This whole thing really made my son question his faith, and im glad he has it all back.
    Thank you so so much!
    God bless you

    Your 2012 book is good source of info for those Bible believing Christians who look answers and hopping to witness for those who take 2012 seriously. I personally would not be surprised if something drastic is going to happen 2012. But it couldl be man made “catastrophe” hidden to look as a natural or “terrorist”. (Real or made up. ( Terrorist might be group that is framed to look like one)) disaster. What other way some group(s) to gain, bring new laws against Bible or keep their control of world wide sources, finances and population. Using scare tactics. Remember Luke 21:28 -31
    “When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

    29He told them this parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees.
    30When they sprout leaves, you can see for yourselves and know that summer is near.

    31Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. “

    Dear Brother Mark,
    I have read almost all of your books concerning End Times.. I think the work and effort you have put into these books has opened the eyes, and hearts, of so many to the Power of God! I am ready for more to hit the book stores! God Bless you and your family!

    **For those of you who liked 2012 The Bible and the End of the World, You need to get Cashless! It is sure to make you stop and think about what is really going on! God Bless you all!**

    Dr. Hitchcock,
    I love your books that you have written. The Amazing Claims of Bible Prophecy is an excellent book that gives me so much faith in God that HE is in control. I love how our Lord Jesus death was prophecied to the very month and even day in the Old Testament, WOW. Talk about God in control. Another excellent book is “Apocalypse 2012 The ticking of the End Time Clock- What does the Bible say?” by John Claeys. Blessings

  17. Marcus Sanford

    Dear Mark,
    I heard your interview in the Seattle area today. I’m very sorry to see that there is yet another “prophecy expert” who has missed quite a bit of what NT is about. You see, you don’t realize you have the same market appeal as the next prognosticator. They do, and thus the HISTORY channel has its programs trying to blend the two.

    Anyone who has made a science out of the 2500 uses of the OT by the NT must realize first off that the NT is totally absorbed in the 1st coming, and allows for the 2nd coming without any Judaistic specifics. Not the reverse! The end times for the NT writer is what just happened in the Christ event, as seen in several NT passages.

    My seminars on this are titled “From Mania Back to Mission” because anyone really saturated with NT will not try to make the next Christian top 10 with junk eschatology. They will instead try to make their mission as close to Acts as possible. That, not units sold, had better be your end product.

    Several very quality studies have shown that most of Jesus on the future is about the crisis 40 years after him, when Jerusalem was crushed. The 2nd coming is hardly detailed. He wanted, like Acts, for Israel to take up the mission of the Gospel. Us, too.

    Yes God could end everything earthly tomorrow with one CME. But 2 Peter 3 has absolutely nothing Judaistic in the new heavens and earth. Your concept of antichrist is as far from I John as is possible. And as you know we should always get everything from the Bible’s didactic passages before dipping into the symbolic.

    Marcus,

    As you know there are many different viewpoints on biblical eschatology. It’s clear that you disagree with my view, but resorting to calling my view “junk eschatology” is not necessary or helpful. The view I hold is very similar, and in most cases identical, to that of the early church and its brightest luminaries such as Papias, Irenaeus, Justin Martyr, Tertullian and Victorinus. The fact that these men held to a future, literal Antichrist, and a literal Second coming followed by a literal 1,000 year reign of Christ does not make this view correct, but it does show that calling this view “junk eschatology” is unwise. Those earliest to the first century and the NT writers don’t agree with you. Papias was a disciple of the Apostle John and Ireaeus was a disciple of Polycarp who knew John, so one would assume these men knew what John meant when he wrote his epistles and Revelation.

    Concerning the Antichrist, you say that my view is “as far from 1 John as is possible.” I have about 30 commentaries on I John from the best-known commentators of the last 100 years and from many different eschatological backgrounds. Everyone of them but one holds that John was speaking of the many antichrists or false teachers (plural) of his own day but that this foreshadowed the coming of the Antichrist (singular) who is to come (1 John 2:18). Again, we may be wrong, but how is this “junk eschatology.” It’s been the majority view of the church down through history.

    The preterist view you hold, that places the fulfillment of NT prophecy in the time of AD 70, did not come about until much later in church history. The modern version of it was developed by German liberals in the 1830s.

    I believe that anyone saturated with the NT will see that coming of Christ is referred to 318 times. John, Peter, Paul, and the writer to the Hebrews are calling us live in light of that coming day.

    I agree with you that we should be focused on mission, not mania. But if you listen to my radio programs or my sermons at our church, I don’t think anyone would accuse me of stirring up mania. I’m doing my best to understand what Scripture is saying. If you will visit the website of our church http://www.edmondfaithbible.com I think you will find a church that, while very imperfect, is very focused on the central misson of Christianity. I believe that part of the mission is to call people to be ready for the coming of Christ. After all, the final words of Jesus to His church are “Yes, I am coming quickly.”

    Blessings,

    Mark

    Dear Mark,
    I am still trying to reach you as I continue to try and find a well known Christian man who will help me get the message out that at 11:11 PM Friday December 21, 2012 it will be THE SABBATH.
    I cannot find where you nor John Hagee, nor Hal Lindsay, nor Perry Stone, nor Jack Van Impe, nor Grant Jeffrey included this eternally important FACT in your books on 2012! I am not jewish nor 7th Day Adventist. I am a Christian who believes that God has His reason for commanding us to REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY! Please contact me as I am trying to get this message out there. I put all my research in a book and self-published it here in Nashville recently. Title: “America’s Alarm Clock Is Screaming 2012 The Forgotten Sign” pen name Mary HOPE St. Clair. I am working on my current manuscript pointing readers to the powerful connection between the prophecies about 2012 and Ezekiel 20:12.

    I possibly would not have contemplated this was beneficial two or 3 months ago, yet it’s fascinating how age evolves the manner you react to stuff, thanks for the blog article it really is pleasing to see anything wise now as opposed to the regular rubbish disguised as blogs and forums over the net.

  21. Larry Krenzin

    Just read your book “2012 The Bible and the End of the World”. While the book was very informative regarding the Mayans, your accusation regarding of blindness of the world’s religious leaders is a condemnation of yourself also. You perpetuate the myth that Christians will be raptured before the last 7 year period. If that is the case, Jesus would have said, “Don’t worry, you will be gone when all this tribulation begins.” But he didn’t. He specifically warns to look out for the abomination of desolation which happens about in the middle of the last 7 year period. He also mentions tribulation and a trumpet that is the signal for the rapture and Paul confims this phenomenon in two of the books he penned. If you wish, I have compiled a short treatise on the rapture which I can send to you if you are interested – but I don’t expect a response. Thank you for the 2012 book howver.

  22. Ray

    Mark, I apreciate your ministry so much. You were right on target with your presentation on Egypt at the IPC. I teach and write on prophecy and you are a great inspiration to me. I appreciate how you come to your teaching with a pastor’s heart.

  23. Jan

    Hi – I just saw your message on internet entitled Our Blessed Hope The Rapture of the Church. You were in Hawaii at Calvary Chapel on 9-30-2010. I also saw the name of Aloha Bible Teaching

    This was so good that I want to buy a DVD of this message. I haven’t been able to find it – could you help me locate this DVD.

    Your messages are so understandable and wonderful to help me learn the Word better.
    Thank you in advance.

    Blessings to you … Jan

  24. Ronn Johnson

    Pastor Mark … I have been raised in the Rapture Theory, pouring over Walvoord’s works, Ryrie, Scofield for example, plus multitudes of other men and women … First, Rapture IS NOT a Bible term nor it can be picked out of any Biblical passage … The Thess. ‘catching away’ has been used to justify a Rapture – can it? … To rightly understand prophecy, one MUST really under-stand Israel and the Church link … Abraham, our father of faith [Galatians], believed and we also [the Church] do this … God spoke of a ‘seed’ for Abraham and that seed IS NOT only the physical seed, BUT also the spirtual seed, the Church of Christ … THIS must be understood or all else goes sour and we end up with Dispensationalism prophecy … Our [the Church] teacher Paul knew this all to well and had to “unlearn” the physical/ pharasaical mindset of his people … Paul taught elloquently on prophecy in the Epistles and Rom. 9,10,11, the chapters which have prob. split more local churches than any other chapters in the entire Bible … In these 3 chapters Israel has been forsaken by God and Tthe Gentiles put in their place … Eph. 2 talks of the ‘miidle wall of partition’ [OT laws and sacrifices] being torn down, and that BOTH Jews and Gentiles are NOW ONE in Jesus Christ … There is no longer a Jewish Nation that will be somehow be restored in the future Mill. [how could this happen - God has broken down ALL OT laws and sacrifices - remember accord. to Paul - "we are one in Christ"] … Do we think for a minute that God will reinstate these old and of-no-use-anymore sacrifices? – Appar. some do … These people are Dispensationalists/Pre-Millists … By using the Scofiled Bible [I just hate to call it Bible b/c of his biased Disp. views (Scofield bible instead!)], I have many years ago proven the Pre-Mill and Disp. THEORY as wrong – dead worng … Oh, yes, many will say Ronn, have you gone to seminary – are you a pastor – I say, so what!! – a lay person can learn the Bible just as much and know prophecy just like prophecy-experts [so called] … See, most of Christendom of which I am familiar are ‘blindly-led’ Dispensational and Pre-Mil without studying for themselves and instead allowing their ears to be tickled by so-called prophecy-experts … The Bible is clear [clear enough for even the nominal Christian] to see that Abraham’s faith is my [our] faith, and that Christ had broken down Jewish OT laws and sacrifices – never to be resurrected again!!! – Paul believed this, taught it – is no Rapturist and premillenialist – I choose to believe an Apostle instead of Camping and other Rapture Theory minded preachers!!!

    Larry,

    Thanks for the comments about the 2012 book. I do hold the pre-trib rapture view, which is a common view among prophecy teachers. I understand that many disagree with the view, but it’s not something we need to divide over or get angry about. The pre-trib rapture position is my sincerely held belief based upon Scripture.

    Blessings,

    Mark

    Mark,
    My husband and I were blessed to have been able to attend David Hockings Prophecy Conference in Abbotsford, BC this weekend (July 15 & 16 2012) where we enjoyed listening to the speakers. Paticularly your topics “The Judgement Seat of Christ”, “What Will Happen in 2012″ and your final message on Egypt. I appreciated your “How To Get Ready” for my encounter at the Bema Seat and the list of “God’s 15 Test Questons” and will be in prayer with many of them or perhaps all of them .
    Your points on 2012 intrigued me. I have paid little or no attention to the theory as I know where I am going and I know God is always in control and I am so thankful for that.. After listening to you I will certainly look for opportunities to share the truth about the true God and the truth about the “end of the world”.
    Thank you and blessings to you and your family.

    Edna

  28. Frank Triana

    With due respect, Pastor Mark:

    Harold Camping is now warning the world that the Day of Judgment will begin at about 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 21, 2011. The 89-year-old founder of Family Radio has made such ridiculous pronouncements before, most recently in 1994. He now says that he simply miscalculated then, but he is absolutely certain that he has the right calculation now. You have been warned.
    Actually, millions of people in America have been “warned” through Camping’s radio program and by means of the more than 1,200 billboards his ministry has put up across the nation. According to press reports, Family Radio has put up 2,000 billboards in other nations, as well.
    Camping is no stranger to controversy, but this one has caught national and international attention. He was wrong before and he’s going to be wrong again, but this time he thinks he’s absolutely certain that he is right. As he told New York magazine:

    “God has given so much information in the Bible about this, and so many proofs, and so many signs, that we know it is absolutely going to happen without any question at all. There’s nothing in the Bible that God has ever prophesied — there’s many things that he prophesied would happen and they always have happened — but there’s nothing in the Bible that holds a candle to the amount of information to this tremendous “truth” (as he claims) of the end of the world. I would be absolutely in rebellion against God if I thought anything other than it is absolutely going to happen without any question.”
    If you know the Bible and this statement confuses you, you are in good company. Harold Camping presumptuously and arrogantly believes that God has revealed to him the exact dates of biblical events and the timeline of the judgment, that’s a LIE from the pit of hell and Satan himself. He says that God revealed some so-called “exquisite proof” that enabled him to determine a so-called “finished product” timeline that ends on May 21, this coming Saturday.
    As Michael S. Rosenwald of The Washington Post explains, Camping “says he came up with the very precise date of May 21 through a mathematical calculation that would probably crash Google’s computers.” Further, Camping’s mathematical formula “involves, among other things, the dates of floods, the signals of numbers in the Bible, multiplication, addition and subtraction thereof.” As many have noted, the math seems to make sense only to Harold Camping, a real smart-aleck, busy body, know-it-all that should study the Bible himself, get his eschatology straight and clear and stop speculating dates which not only deceives and misleads people but it’s also sin.
    .
    Yet, in a strange way, this just serves to affirm Camping in his teaching. On his website he states:
    However, it was not until a very few years ago that the accurate knowledge of the entire timeline of history was revealed to true believers by God from the Bible. This timeline extends all the way to the end of time. During these past several years God has been revealing a great many truths, which have been completely hidden in the Bible until this time when we are so near the end of the world.
    These so-called “true believers” turn out to be Harold Camping’s disciples. Others, even professing Christians, will be in big trouble when Saturday comes, he believes.
    The Christian church has seen this kind of false teaching before. William Miller and his Adventist followers (known, surely enough, as Millerites) believed that Christ would return on March 21, 1844. In the 1970s, popular Christian preachers and writers predicted that Christ would return on various dates now long in the past and they’re still doing it. All this is embarrassing enough, but now we have the heretic teachings of Harold Camping to deal with. Given the public controversy, many people are wondering how Christians should think about his claims.
    First, Christ specifically admonished his disciples not to claim such knowledge. In Acts 1:7, Jesus said, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.” In Matthew 24:36, Christ taught similarly: “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.”
    To state the case plainly, first of all, these two verses explicitly forbid Christians to claim the knowledge of such dates and times which is sin. Jesus clearly taught that the Father has not revealed such dates and timing, but has reserved that knowledge for himself. It is an act of incredible presumptuousness to claim that a human knows such a date, or has determined God’s timing by any means.
    Second, the Bible does not contain neither dates nor hidden codes that we are to find and decipher. The Bible has been given to us in order that we might know the truth, and the truth is clearly revealed in its pages and it practically interprets itself. We are not to look for hidden patterns of words, numbers, dates, or anything else (e.g. the Mayan Indian “end of the world” predictions for the year 2012 for example). The Bible’s message is plain and requires no mathematical computation for its understanding. The claim that one has found a hidden code or system in the Bible is an insult to the Bible as the Word of God and a form of blasphemy and abomination to the Lord.
    Third, Christians are indeed to be looking for Christ to return and seeking to be found faithful when Christ comes. We are not to draw a line in history and set a date, but we are to be about the Father’s business, sharing the Gospel and living faithful Christian lives. We are not to sit on rooftops like the Millerites, waiting for Christ’s return or burying our heads in the sand like ostriches waiting for the “end of the world” to come. Instead we are to be busy doing what Christ has commanded and commissioned us to do for this end time.
    In Hebrews 9:28, we are taught that Christ will come a second time “to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” That is the faithful Christian response to these false prophesies and the New Testament teachings about Christ’s coming. The church or anybody else is not to be arrogantly and ignorantly setting dates, but instead to be eagerly waiting for him, of that we can be truly certain.

    God bless you, brother

    It is not the world as far as the planet earth that’s gonna end but rather the system that fallen man has established upon it that will (the Greek root words translated into “world” in Matthew 24 is “kosmos” and “aeon” which means “age” period or epoch of time therefore the words “end of the world” should be better translated as “end of the age”

I liked (and mentioned your 2012) book, and based on it have 7 more on order. Would you do me the honor of looking at my website and telling me of any errors you see in my logic

    Frank,

    If you will read my book I think you will find that I agree with you. I debunk the 2012 end of the world view and all forms of date-setting.

    Blessings,

    Mark

    Dear brother Mark,

    God Bless You for this Biblical reference to the subject of 2012. I am very excited about it and I love your books that you have written.

    I’m a presbiter in the romanian baptist church and I wanted to write something about this topic.

    I want to read your book,
    can you send me a copy for free?!

    God bless you!

    Dear Mark,
    Over the past couple of years I have been studying end time scripture and have appreciated your 101 answers to the most asked end time questions. I am unsure however why you did not include the 2 Thessalonians 2 1-4 passage in your references to the timing of the rapture. As I read this passage it clearly refers to the timing of the rapture being addressed by Paul and states the conditions that must occur before it happens. Would you clarify your interpretation of this passage? Thanks,

    Dr. Hitchcock,
    Today, while listening to “interpreting the Times” on AFR, they played a portion of your sermon that is posted above. I was intrigued and wanted to finish it, but the link above isn’t working for me and I even tried to get your podcasts through Edmond Church, but they don’t go this far back.. Solution?
    Many thanks,
    Chad

    PLEASE LET ME KNOW WHICH IS YOUR VERY LATEST BOOK THAT I CAN PURCHASE TO GIVE TO MY FRIENDS TO READ THAT WOULD BE THE MOST INFORMATIVE AS YOU HAVE SO MANY BOOKS I AM CONFUSED AS TO WHICH ONE. ALSO I TRIED TO PULL UP YOUR MESSAGE ON OCT 11 AND 18 AT YOUR CHURCH BUT COULD NOT DO DO.

    It is my belief that the Rapture of the Church will not occur until Israel has been prepared to take the mantle, another words the natural branches must again be restored! Malachi 4:5,6 identifies that the Lord God will send Elijah the Prophet to prepare the hearts of Israel, to return them again to righteousness and faith in the convenant promises of the Lord before the great and dreadful day of the Lord (Tribulation)! In addition the Lord God also identifies by the mouth of the Ezekiel the Prophet that he will pour out his Spirit upon the house of Israel in the aftermath of the Gog/Magog battle of Ezekiel 38/39! This identifies clearly of a transition from the Church to Israel and the intent of the Lord to reestablish and redeem Israel! When Israel is therefore prepared to take the mantle, the time of the Church will be complete, for the Lord will not leave the earth without a messenger of his plan of redemption!
