Aussie PM delivers mock Apocalypse message

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard recorded a mock, tongue in cheek  doomsday message as a stunt for a radio show, Australian news is reporting,

"Julia Gillard has recorded a tongue-in-cheek video address to the nation warning the world is about to come to an apocalyptic end, as predicted in the Mayan calendar. In the 55-second spoof clip, recorded for Triple J radio, Ms Gillard addresses her "remaining fellow Australians" warning of zombies, hell beasts and a K-pop armageddon. With an emotionless delivery, the prime minister says the end of the world is coming not because of Y2K, or even the carbon tax, but "it turns out the Mayan calendar was true" "Whether the final blow comes from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell beasts or from the total triumph of K-pop, if you know one thing about me it is this: I will always fight for you until the very end,” Ms Gillard says. "And at least this means I won't have to do Q&A again." The message was recorded to promote Tom and Alex's "End of the World" radio show, which is set to air at 6am AEDT on Friday morning."



Ms Gillard revealed during her campaign before she was elected that she is an atheist. The UK Daily Mail had reported back then that Gillard stated "I don't believe in God."

Two thoughts about this come quickly to mind. First, the world's leaders are increasingly having a party rather than being the dignified and sober leaders we would wish them to be. Are they quietly and diligently attending to their people's problems and leading with grace and ingenuity? No. They appear on late-night comedy shows and make jokes at the very problems their people are experiencing and which they are supposed to be solving. Or they use The People's House to host celebrity-studded awards night and mingle among the 54 Christmas Trees. Leadership as an institution is dying.

Secondly, Ms Gillard is in spiritual pain. She does not know it because she has a reprobate mind. However, she mocks God in a dangerous way. No, the Mayan calendar is false, and does not predict anything except people's gullibility in holding to false beliefs. But God is very real and He weeps over His people and their lost ways. For a world leader to mock the fact of coming doom and joke about an issue which her Christian constituents take very seriously (end of the world via God's wrath) is just heart-breaking. Unfortunately, we know that unless she repents, she will discover the truth all too eternally.

I laughed at the clip. It is funny. Bu the end of the world is not. If our world's leaders are not mocking the global situation, they are scurrying to and fro in vain attempts to try and solve it. Neither will come to anything more than wisps and smoke.

  1. Off this topic - but have you noticed how many meteors have been happening recently? I usually check out a couple of web sitesl http://lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.com/2012/12/il-mo-meteor-04dec2012.html and sott.net (not recommending the rest of this site - they are anti-Israel and delve into stuff that is not good - however, they are the only place I've seen that collects this information and publishes it regularly, I check only their earth changes, fire in the sky and high strangeness sections and leave the rest totally alone). The reason I ask is that it seems there has been a dramatic increase in the number of fireballs and meteorites falling in the past couple of years. Along with that, there has also been an increase in the reporting of loud booms around the world. Not the Ukrainian video sound, but explosions and shaking of buildings - all unexplained.

    1. I did notice the meteors, as well as asteroids, eclipses, and comets int he news lately. Here are two amazing links for you along that same vein

      In that story a weird rumbling kind of noise that isn't seismic is causing consternation

      And next year's comet is supposed to one of the most spectacular night-sky events in living memory, a unique experience

      I believe there has been a dramatic increase in meteors and bolides as well. I know that there are not many places that track and thus can quantify them, but it seems that they are making the news in greater frequency now. I agree with you.

  2. If you consider what deception is elizabeth, it seems odd that out of dozens if not hundreds or thousands of ancient pagan prophecies that this is the only one you ever hear about.

    Granted, what the Mayans actually did was map out patterns of the cycle of planets and whatnot, but I would not be surprised at all if the antichrist uses something like Dec 21, 2012 to reveal himself to try to convince the world of some kind of divinity. Not to mention, pagan belief. =(

    It is true that any prophecies made that are not from God are nothing truly nothing at all, but our enemy is clever.

    Speaking of clever, I'd like your opinion elizabeth, I've heard some about testing truth against the reaction the world gives (whether the world approves or rejects) to try to understand what is right and wrong. Well, to me (and I may be wrong) that seems foolish because our enemy is crafty, it would seem to me that his world might react to something good in a positive way and fool us.

    I suppose my point is...

    2 Corinthians 5:7 We live by faith, not by sight.

    No matter what happens exactly, it all feels close.

    1. Hi Dan,

      It all feels close to me as well. I also agree that the enemy is clever.

      There are lots of prophecies, and we do hear about them quite a bit. Nostradamus is famous, as well as Edgar Cayce. However the difference with the Mayan prophecy in my opinion, is that it has a date attached. People go ga-ga over a date. False prophecies don't usually ge that specific. When people read about a date or something very specific, they tend to give it more credibility. The bible excepted, of course. The Holy Word's prophecies are extremely specific but are never counted as credible.

      I am not so sure the antichrist will reveal himself on Dec 21, 2012...the bible says he will reveal himself when he takes a seat in the temple, proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thess 2:3-6).

      As far as testing truth against the world, John MacArthur has a short essay on relatavism and the Christian's duty called "Do Not Love the World."

      One can proclaim truth and one can know from the bible that the reaction the world gives is always negative. Look at how they reacted to Jesus. We can do no less, however. We are charged with saying the truth of the Good News and we understand the reaction the world will give will be negative. Any watering down of the truth is a denial of God and an abdication of our responsibility.We cannot understand what is right or wrong unless it comes via illumination of the Holy Spirit by the word of God (bible). Apart from Jesus, there is no truth. (John 14:6)
