And I saw an angel come down from heaven having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil and Satan, and bound him a thousand years." Revelation 20.1,2 This appears to me as a hidden "code" which can be easily deciphered once one compares the Biblical text with the Mayan Cosmology and the Chinese Zodiac. 2012-According to Chinese Astrology--The Year of the Dragon. The year can almost be also used as a date 12/20. Let us now see what the Chinese astrology says about this. THE WATER DRAGON 1952 AND 2012 "Water has a calming effect on the Dragon's fearless temperament. Water allows the Dragon to re-direct its enthusiams, and makes him more perceptive of others. These Dragons are better equipped to take a step back to re-evaluate a situation because they understand the art of patience and do not desire the spotlight of other Dragons. Therefore, they make smart decisions and are able to see eye-to-eye with other people. However, their actions can go wrong if they do not research or if they do not finish one project before starting another." According to the Maya Cosmogenesis, There is to be a rare alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic plane in the years around AD 2012 and the Mayan priests chose to end their 13-baktun cycle on December 21, 2012 AD. Lets look at the date Dec 21 and compare with Revelation 21.1 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there was no more." So waht this appears to be is a New baktun cycle to begin at the end of the current cycle on Dec 20-21, 2012. In the year of the Water Dragon, according to the Chineze Zodiac. The question now is how does this correspond to various Afrikan traditional Spiritual Systems? Is there any correspondance at all?
