A few days ago, hardly anyone had heard about “the 12/12 warning”, but now the Internet is buzzing with lots of speculation about what it could possibly mean. On December 12th at exactly 12:12 AM eastern time, we witnessed the very last full moon of this entire decade. As I detailed yesterday, there is only a 1 in 691,920 chance that the last full moon of this decade would fall on that exact minute in time. And many have also pointed out that the individual digits of “2019” also add up to a total of 12. You can believe that all of this is just some sort of grand coincidence if you want, but a lot of people out there are really freaking out about this.
What makes this strange confluence of numbers even stranger is the fact that it happened exactly 6,666 days from 9/11.
If you go to timeanddate.com, there is a handy calculator that allows you to instantly calculate the number of days between two specific dates.
Just a little while ago, I typed in 9/11/2001 as the start date and 12/12/19 as the end date, and it gave me a result of precisely 6,666 days.
Isn’t that weird?
And of course two sixes add up to 12, and so adding up the digits in that time span gives us the number 12 two additional times.
As I cautioned yesterday, I don’t know what significance all of this may have. But it is interesting to note that this extremely intriguing confluence of numbers only occurred in the eastern time zone of the United States. And this has happened just as the debate on the articles of impeachment is about to begin in Washington.
Could it be possible that someone is trying to highlight the fact that this is an absolutely critical moment in American history? As the full moon approached, mainstream news sources all over the world ran stories about it. For example, the following comes from the Daily Mail…
The final full moon of the decade will reach its peak in the night sky as the clock strikes 12:12am on 12/12 in the Eastern United States, delighting numerologists.
While only the Eastern United States will have such a notable time and date for the lunar peak, the full moon will be ‘bright and visible’ around the world.
This is a good time of year to watch and possibly photograph the full moon, according to NASA, because it is opposite a low sun.
And needless to say, Twitter was buzzing with plenty of chatter about this very strange full moon.
Here are just a few examples…
–Nick Hinton: The last full moon of the decade will peak on 12/12 at 12:12 A.M. Is there any significance behind this or is it just a cool coincidence?
–Pee-wee Herman: THIS JUST IN! Last FULL MOON of the DECADE happens on 12/12 at 12:12 AM EST!!!!!
–RepentantSinner: Interesting fact: The full moon happens at 12:12 ET am on December (the 12th month) 12th. In Strong’s Concordance the number 1212 refers to the Greek word délos which means “clear, manifest, evident”. I believe we are about to witness something very interesting prophetically
–Alaskan: This weeks full moon occurs on 12/12 at 12:12 AM. If that isn’t a good omen for the #Seahawks game vs. the Panthers this weekend I don’t know what is!!
–Teri: the final moon of the first decade of the 21st century will peak at 12:12 am EST on December 12 which breaks down to 12-12-12-12
–Pamela Denise Smith: FASCINATING!!! According to the Bible, God’s appointments are set by the heavenly luminaries that He set. Plus, “Twelve” is the scriptural number for tribes, family, and government.
–Jenna: The last full moon of the decade will be on 12/12 peaking at 12:12 a.m. Following with Friday the 13th right after
–JeanKP: The kids in my school were off the chain today!!! I hear the full moon will hit its full zenith at 12:12 am on 12/12/19.
–Ken Kruger: Is God Trying To Tell Us Something By Giving Providing A ‘Long Night’ Full Moon On The 12th Day Of The Twelfth Month At Exactly 12:12 AM?
–Mark McConville: It’s 12/12 and there’s a full moon tonight so at 12:12am I will be out in my yard soaking up lunar juju in the nude.
I seriously hope that Mark McConville was kidding about that last comment. Nobody wants to see that.
The full moon that happens in December is known as the “Cold Moon” because winter is approaching and as the “Long Night’s Moon” because it usually happens not too far from the winter solstice.
And many have also found it noteworthy that this very unusual full moon appeared just one day before Friday the 13th.
But to me, if this full moon does have some sort of special significance, then it has something to do with the number 12.
When I think of the number 12, the first thing that comes to mind is midnight. When someone says “the clock strikes 12”, you know exactly what they are talking about. And that phrase carries with it the connotation that time has run out. From a very early age, Cinderella and other stories teach us that there is something very special about the stroke of midnight, and it is a concept that has now become deeply ingrained in our culture.
For a long time, many of us have felt that we were living in “the 11th hour”. We have been relentlessly warning America about what is ahead if we do not change course, but the nation continues to race down a path that leads to national suicide.
Could it be possible that someone is trying to tell us that time is either running out or has now run out completely?
I don’t know.
Perhaps all of these numbers are just some sort of giant coincidence and they don’t mean anything at all.
But if it is a giant coincidence, it is quite a whopper.
Right now, people all over the globe are talking about the giant sign in the sky that we just witnessed, and there is an enormous amount of speculation about what it could mean.
I don’t have any solid answers for you, but I am not afraid to ask the hard questions.
